Administration Shields Sexually Deviant Illegals and Supports DREAM Act

by J. Christian Adams: Victor Nunez is an illegal alien from Mexico. Two years after arriving in the United States, he was convicted of petty theft for shoplifting. Then, he was convicted of a much more serious crime: He exposed himself in public. But even that wasn’t enough to have him removed from the country.

After a decade of his illegal presence, the Department of Homeland Security finally brought immigration charges to remove him from the United States. Crimes of “moral turpitude,” like exposing your genitals to children, are supposed to result in certain deportation.

The Immigration Judge denied his application, and the Board of Immigration Appeals affirmed, finding that he had two convictions for “crimes involving moral turpitude,” which under the immigration laws, makes one ineligible for the green card Nunez was seeking. Nunez was on a fast track back to Mexico.

But Nunez appealed, claiming that his conviction for indecent exposure was not a crime involving moral turpitude. To be convicted of this crime under California law, the offender must be shown to have willfully exposed his private parts in a public place or in a place where there are unwilling persons. Under the law, he also must “intentionally direct attention to his genitals for sexual purposes.” For his conviction, it was necessary for the government to show that Nunez intended to direct attention to his genitals for sexual purposes; his conviction demonstrates, specifically, that he sought to sexually arouse or gratify himself or his victim.

But to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Francisco, there was no “moral turpitude” evident in Nunez’s crime. In an opinion by Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the deportation order was reversed. Nunez gets to stay. Reinhardt reasoned that indecent exposure is not necessarily a crime involving moral turpitude.

This decision demonstrates a pervasive relativism that is infecting American jurisprudence, and most of the public has no idea it is happening. The law used to be about objective right and objective wrong. The plain meaning of words governed the law.

Judge Reinhardt downplays the seriousness and immoral nature of the crime, saying for example that what constitutes moral turpitude is “amorphous” and “could well divide residents of red states from residents of blue states.”

That’s comforting. I’m glad I don’t have to raise my children in the blue states if Judge Reinhardt is right.

It is true that the Obama Justice Department defended the ruling of the Immigration Judge and the Board before the Ninth Circuit, and would undoubtedly express disappointment over the decision. But if so, why has it done nothing to continue to fight the case? The Eric Holder Justice Department never even sought rehearing en banc (asking all the judges on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to rehear the case), or asked the Supreme Court to take the case and reverse Judge Reinhardt.

Does the Justice Department share Judge Reinhardt’s view that an illegal immigrant’s public exposure of his genitals does not satisfy the term “moral turpitude” thereby meriting deportation?

Why didn’t it appeal? The decision is far outside of the mainstream and not consistent even with the left-of-center California Supreme Court’s interpretation of sexual crimes. In fact, it is even inconsistent with an en banc decision of the Ninth Circuit from last year, Marmolejo-Campos v. Holder. The entire Ninth Circuit held that what constitutes moral turpitude should be decided by the Board of Immigration appeals, not Judge Stephen Reinhardt.

So why doesn’t the Department of Justice appeal Judge Reinhardt’s opinion about indecent exposure by illegal aliens? Does Attorney General Eric Holder agree with it?

Of course, Judge Reinhardt does not have the best record when his cases are appealed to the Supreme Court. The Ninth is reversed by the Supreme Court more than any other. Even when writing for a unanimous Ninth Circuit, Judge Reinhardt may be the judge most reversed by the Supreme Court.

The Obama Administration claims that it is vigorously enforcing the nation’s immigration laws. The Justice Department’s unprecedented lawsuit against Arizona for trying to address illegal immigration proves otherwise. It has also been exposed through the release of internal memos that show the Obama Administration making contingency plans to implement amnesty by administrative fiat if the Congress fails to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

The Administration has already begun implementing those plans through formal new DHS directives to its career enforcement officials, ordering them not to enforce the immigration laws for what it calls “minor vehicular offenses,” if they were committed by illegal aliens who have received a high school diploma and attended two years of college. In other words, if they satisfy the amnesty requirements of a proposed law not yet passed by Congress called the DREAM Act, the DHS orders an effective amnesty.

That’s right, the Administration is enforcing a policy that has yet to pass Congress. Welcome to Legal Wonderland. Curiouser and curiouser it is.

When questioned about administrative amnesty proposals, the DHS press flunkies say “DHS will not grant deferred action or humanitarian parole to the nation's illegal immigrant population." They say they will not suspend enforcement of immigration laws. And in truth, they don’t suspend the current laws for ALL illegal aliens, only for some.

They are giving breaks to a larger and select groups of illegal aliens. This is worse than a backdoor amnesty. This is a backdoor amnesty that flaunts the rule of law. No matter your individual beliefs about immigration policy, in a nation governed by the rule of law, as passed by Congress, we should all agree the Executive Branch can’t suspend laws they simply disagree with.

The Administration has never openly stated they are suspending the enforcement of the immigration laws against sexual offenders, and in fact claims that serious criminals are its highest priority. Yet, the Justice Department is doing nothing to fight extreme pro-criminal alien decisions like this one from Judge Reinhardt.

And this case is certainly not unique among Ninth Circuit decisions rejecting government efforts to remove criminal aliens for sexual crimes. In May, the Ninth Circuit ruled in Rivera-Cuartas v. Holder, that an Arizona statue that made sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 18 years old illegal is not always “sexual abuse of a minor.” This, despite the reality that under federal law such behavior is considered an aggravated felony and almost always results in removal from the United States. The Holder Justice Department has not fought back and appealed this bad decision either.

The Obama Administration’s failure to vigorously enforce the immigration laws is becoming increasingly clear, and its failure to appeal bad decisions protecting sexual offenders like Nunez is dangerous. Department of Justice inaction will prevent many other sexual offenders from being removed from the country, at least if they live in the Ninth Circuit. DOJ inaction speaks louder than spin.

Judge Reinhardt is quoted as once saying in reference to the Supreme Court, “They can’t catch them all.” He is right about that, especially if the Justice Department doesn’t even try.

DREAM Act: An Amnesty Nightmare

ROGER HEDGECOCK — Just in time to avoid the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, students at the University of Texas, Austin, staged a hunger strike to support Congressional approval of the DREAM Act. Student activists want you to believe that they are taking a stand for "fairness" and "justice," but the DREAM Act is a turkey designed to amnesty most illegals and force you to subsidize their U.S. college education...

Rep. King: Torpedo DREAM Act to Avoid Flood of Illegals

By Dan Weil and Kathleen Walter, NewsMax: Defeating the so-called DREAM Act must be a top priority before it provides an uncontrollable citizenship path to thousands of illegal immigrants, says Republican U.S. Rep. Steve King.

On the surface, the act would provide a road to citizenship for students who are illegal immigrants. But the Iowa Republican also noted that it would allow students to sponsor their extended families on that path.

“We calculated that a single individual could bring in 357 people on a family reunification plan before we ran out of room on our spreadsheet,” King says.

Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be able to push the act through the lame-duck session of Congress, King tells Newsmax.TV. But Republicans should be able to use the filibuster to kill it in the Senate, he says.

“This is an out-of-control immigration path,” King says. “We need to fence that in and limit it to direct family members.”

King also intends to introduce a bill next year making clear that babies born to illegal mothers in the United States aren’t American citizens because they aren’t subject to U.S. jurisdiction. . . . [Full Story]

Salvadoran Illegal Immigrant Guilty of Murder

Ingmar Guandique
by Ben Conery, The Washington Times: The case of the missing Washington intern devastated a family, destroyed a congressman's career and sparked a media frenzy, but the question of who killed Chandra Levy went unanswered for nearly a decade until a jury on Monday convicted a Salvadoran illegal immigrant of first-degree murder.

The jury of nine women and three men deliberated for 3½ days before convicting 29-year-old Ingmar Guandique of attempting to rob and kidnap the 24-year-old Levy before killing her on May 1, 2001, in Rock Creek Park, where she had gone for a run. Guandique, who already is imprisoned for attacking two other female joggers in the park, faces life in prison when he is sentenced Feb. 11.

"The verdict may have been guilty, but I have a life sentence of a lost limb missing from our family tree," Levy's mother, Susan Levy, told reporters outside D.C. Superior Court. "It's a lifetime of heartbreak." . . . [Full Story]

Illegal Immigration is No Joke (Video)

by Duane Lester, All American Blogger: Last Friday, Congressman Zoe Lofgren, chairman of the immigration subcommittee, invited comedian Stephen Colbert to Congress to testify on the subject of illegal immigration.

Colbert testified in character, a parody of Fox News Bill O’Reilly.
Nancy Pelosi said, “It can bring attention to an important issue like immigration. I think it’s great.”
Steny Hoyer thinks Colbert was an embarrassment. Not to Congress, but to himself.
Here’s my take - Video:

Kathleen Parker Falsely Claims Alexander Hamilton was an Illegal Immigrant

By Matthew Balan, Media Research Center: On Thursday's Parker-Spitzer, CNN's Kathleen Parker bizarrely and inaccurately claimed that Alexander Hamilton came to the United States illegally and drafted the Constitution: "Let's remember...a lot of Americans did come through the back door such as Alexander Hamilton. He got off the boat from the West Indies, and all he did was write the Constitution and become the first Secretary of the Treasury."

Parker raised this false history during a discussion of Pedro Ramirez, Fresno State University's student body president, who was outed as an illegal immigrant by a student newspaper. After playing clips from Ramirez and his opponent during the student election, who is also the president of the Fresno State College Republicans, the CNN host displayed sympathy for the college student: "This is kind of a classic though, isn't it, really? I mean, you've the college Republican versus the illegal immigrant, and it's kind of a classic clash, you know, that corresponds to this immigration debate we're having in this country. And clearly, when you put a human face on the illegal immigrant, it's a different story. I mean, nobody wants to punish this young 22-year-old.

The pseudo-conservative replied with her claim about the Founding Father, and also named a more recent celebrity/politician as an illegal immigrant:
PARKER: But, you know, Eliot, let's remember, too- a lot of Americans did come through the back door-
SPITZER: Yup-
PARKER: Such as Alexander Hamilton.
SPITZER: Yup-
PARKER: He got off the boat from the West Indies, and all he did was write the Constitution and become the first Secretary of the Treasury- and, of course, what about the 'Terminator'?
SPITZER: That's right. We've got to have Arnold, who is in his last days as the great governor of California- has a little bit of a deficit that he's leaving for his successor, the 'moonbeam,' Jerry Brown. So you got Arnold, you got Alexander Hamilton- can you imagine the two of them having dinner together?
Actually, Hamilton came to New York City from the British West Indies in 1774 to study at King College, which was renamed Columbia University after the American War for Independence. Of course, New York was still a British colony at this point, so the young Hamilton didn't "come through the back door."

More importantly, Hamilton didn't write the Constitution - that credit generally goes to James Madison. Hamilton did, however, participate in the Constitutional Convention in 1787, and wrote 51 out of 85 of the Federalist Papers, which aided the ratification of the Constitution. Perhaps Ms. Parker needs to take a refresher course in American history.

As for Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank del Olmo, then associate editor of the Los Angeles Times, claimed in a September 28, 2003 commentary that the action movie star "may once have been an illegal alien," and cited an investigation by the San Jose Mercury News which found that Schwarzenegger "may have violated U.S. immigration laws on at least two occasions." But neither del Olmo nor the San Jose Mercury News provided anything substantive.

Border Report Calls for Military Response to Southern Border Crisis

by TexasFred, TexasFred Blog: This is from the office of Texas State Representative John Carter (R) TX – 31. I am on his mailing list. I wanted to share this, and one other email I received.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 19, 2010 - (WASHINGTON, DC) – The growing state of chaos in Northern Mexico is a direct threat to the homeland security of the United States and must be met by a military response, according to the latest field investigation by the House Immigration Reform Caucus (IRC), ordered by IRC Chairman Brian Bilbray (R-CA) and House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter (R-TX).

IRC Chairman Brian Bilbray stated this morning, “With the drug war, human trafficking, and increasing violence along our borders, it is absolutely imperative to provide the necessary resources to our state and local law enforcement officials. Drug cartel violence in California, specifically in San Diego County and along the Pacific Coast, mirrors that which is happening in Texas and Arizona. Without proper support through grants and collaboration with local, state, and federal agencies, we will continue to see the negative effects of a failed border policy.”

“While the Administration is focused on groping grandma at the airport, heavily armed drug smugglers and Al-Qaeda supporters are daily infiltrating our southern border,” says Carter. “This report clearly documents that security at our border has improved, but is still insufficient, and identifies the remedies to correct the situation.”

“The U.S. Border Patrol and our Sheriffs are doing everything they can to secure our southern border, but there are simply not enough officers to stop the deluge of violent criminals pouring across,” says Carter, the seventh-highest ranking Republican in the House. “We need an immediate surge of armed personnel to shut down the criminal invasion, as has been successfully demonstrated to work in the past.”

The 44-page report, “Broken Neighbor, Broken Border,” calls for an immediate deployment of a minimum 25,000 armed troops at the call of the border Governors, along with substantial new support for the Border Sheriffs, U.S. Border Patrol, and National Park Service law enforcement.

The field investigation was conducted by IRC staff and Congressman Carter in August and September, and covered the Texas border between Falcon Lake in Zapata County and El Paso, along with Maricopa and Cochise counties in Arizona.

The report calls for 12 legislative recommendations for the upcoming Congress to secure the border from drug smuggling, terrorist infiltration, human trafficking, and illegal immigration. All spending for the improvements would require budget offsets from existing federal programs.
· Pre-authorize Border Governors to deploy National Guard/State Defense Forces to secure the border in their state.
· Community Impact Aid for Border Sheriffs’ Departments
· Allow illegal aliens to be prosecuted in any border sectors
· Appropriate $3 billion annually U.S. military/National Guard/State forces operations to secure the southern border
· Block dismissal of illegal immigration charges by the Administration
· Make E-Verify Mandatory Nationwide
· Prepaid Local Law Enforcement Grants for Border Sheriffs
· Improve Border Access Roads for Law Enforcement Access
· Provide Liability Shields for Border Patrol/USCG officers/Private Property owners
· Remove foot bridges from the Rio Grande
· Lower Federal Drug Prosecution Age to match States
· Assure powers of detention for troops on border duty
The report will be published online on the IRC website at http://www.house.gov/bilbray/irc/, and on Congressman Carter’s website at http://www.house.gov/carter.

Folks in Texas are taking this seriously! Read this, from a source I have in Law Enforcement:
America’s Third War: Texas Strikes Back - Nov 18, 2010 2:11 PM EST
I never thought that we’d be in this paramilitary type of engagement. It’s a war on the border,” said Captain Stacy Holland with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Holland leads a fleet of 16 state-of-the-art helicopters that make up the aviation assets used by the Texas DPS to fight Mexican drug cartels.

In recent years, the cartels have become bolder and more ruthless.

They cross the border with AK-47s on their backs, wearing military camouflage. They recruit in prisons and schools on the American side. Spotters sit in duck blinds along the Rio Grande and call out the positions of the U.S. Border Patrol.

To combat the cartels, the Texas Department of Public Safety is launching a counterinsurgency.

Tactical strike teams send field intelligence they gather to Austin to a joint operation intelligence center, or JOIC in military terminology.

It certainly is a war in a sense that were doing what we can to protect Texans and the rest of the nation from clearly a threat that has emerged over the last several years, said Former FBI prosecutor Steve McCraw, who runs the undeclared “war.”

And now that there is added pressure on the cartels, the drug runners are employing new techniques, known as a splash down. When the heat is on, they attempt to return to Mexico with the drugs, often times in broad daylight. And because the Texas law enforcements authority ends at the border — in this case the river — they even have time to put on their life jackets.

The cartels may be ruthless, they may be vicious, they may be cowardly … but they’re not stupid, said McCraw. They will adapt their tactics and recently they’ve adapted their tactics to utilize smaller loads, cross with rafts, stolen vehicles on our side.

President Barack Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Neapolitan have recently said the Mexican border is more secure now than it has been in 20 years, but some along this border strongly disagree.

“To suggest the southwest border is secure is ridiculous,” said Holland.
Some sources can’t be revealed, the person sending the above email is one of them. Anyone that has ever been involved in Law Enforcement along the U.S. and Mexican border knows. Anyone that lives anywhere near the U.S. and Mexican border knows. Our southern border is NOT secure. It’s not even close to being secure.

Now we’re seeing a push from Obama, one reminiscent of the Bush administration, to enact an incredibly lame bill in a LAME DUCK senate session, The Immigrant Dream Act.
President Barack Obama told Democratic members of Congress Tuesday he wants the DREAM Act passed in the lame duck session as a “down payment” on substantial immigration reform, according to members at the meeting.

And, he said, he’d call resistant senators to get them on board. SOURCE
Now we get to see if any of the RINOs still in the Senate have the courage to stand up and fight FOR Americas, LEGAL Americans, and OUR freedom and well being, or are they going to fold and jump on the Obama band wagon and enact AMNESTY for the ILLEGALS already in the USA.

There are some that will read this post and call me a racist for what I am saying. I don’t care if they do. We are at WAR in the border states my friends. We are at war with the ILLEGALS and those of the cartels that travel our roads and streets, spreading their poison.

The federal government, read: Obama, and people like his predecessor, George W. Bush, don’t give a damn.

Bush was an AMNESTY president and he did his best to support that cause. He had the support of Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Immigrant ‘Dream’ Act Fails Key Senate Vote and thankfully, they failed.

In August of this year I posted this piece: Texas Sen. John Cornyn backs review of ‘birthright citizenship’. To be honest with you, I have NO idea where Sen. Cornyn will fall in when it comes to supporting Texas and border security. Sen. Cornyn is as RINO and goes the way the wind blows.

American freedoms are under attack, from enemies both foreign and domestic. To coin an old typing exercise; Now is the time for ALL good men to come to aid of their country! Now more than ever…  TexasFred

Report Finds: DOJ Gave Millions to Illegal Immigrant 'Sanctuaries,'

By Joshua Rhett Miller, Fox News: he Department of Justice has spent tens of millions of dollars this year to compensate more than two dozen states, counties and cities for their costs of jailing illegal immigrants -- even though those communities have adopted policies that obstruct immigration enforcement, according to a recently released report.

"Subsidizing Sanctuaries: The State Criminal Alien Assistance Program," a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, found that the federal grant program commonly known as SCAAP allocated $62.2 million -- more than 15 percent of its $400 million total -- to 27 jurisdictions that are widely considered to be "sanctuary communities."  Some of those jurisdictions -- including San Francisco, Chicago and California's Santa Clara County -- are even trying to opt-out of Secure Communities, a program that automatically alerts Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials when criminal illegal immigrants are booked into jail, according to the report.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies and a co-author of the report, said that the grant system as currently structured makes little sense. "Basically, the federal government is subsidizing through this grant program jurisdictions that on the one hand are complaining about the cost of illegal immigration and demanding reimbursement from the federal government, while at the same time they have policies in place that make their locality a magnet for illegal aliens," Vaughan told FoxNews.com.  "And that's just illogical," she said.

According to Department of Justice figures cited in the report, five of the top 10 SCAAP grants to localities and two of the top 10 grants to states went to jurisdictions that are considered sanctuaries. That includes $14.2 million to Los Angeles County, $13.4 million to New York City and $88 million to the state of California.

Rather than award SCAAP grants to jurisdictions that incur costs of incarcerating undocumented criminal aliens, Vaughan said federal officials should use the grant program as an incentive for communities to participate in immigration enforcement programs like Secure Communities or the 287(g) program, which trains deputies to check the immigration status of individuals they arrest and has identified more than 180,000 illegal immigrants for deportation nationwide since 2006.

In a statement obtained by FoxNews.com, U.S. Rep. Gary Miller, R-Calif., said he disagreed with funding sanctuary cities using SCAAP grants and called on the Obama administration to take action.  "In its lawsuit challenging the Arizona immigration law, the Obama administration claims that the law creates a patchwork of immigration enforcement," Miller's statement read. "If this is the case, then the Obama administration should also sue sanctuary cities, for their policies are arguably a 'patchwork' of immigration enforcement as well. It is time for the administration to end its double standard."

To that end, Miller has authored legislation -- the Loophole Elimination and Verification Enforcement Act, or LEAVE -- that would prohibit sanctuary communities from receiving both Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security funds.  "I hope the next Congress will take up this commonsense proposal and penalize sanctuary cities for their irresponsible policies," Miller's statement concluded.

In a statement to FoxNews.com, the Department of Justice said it administers the SCAAP grants in accordance with legislation authorizing the program and passed by Congress.

"Funding under this program is provided to any eligible jurisdiction that incurs costs associated with detaining criminal aliens," the statement read. "SCAAP does not inhibit, but rather supports the accountability process by reimbursing local agency costs for detaining illegal aliens who commit crimes."

The statement continued, "Making any jurisdiction ineligible for these funds could have an unintended consequence -- creating a disincentive to detain criminals who are greater flight risks and pose a danger to our communities. The Department of Justice is committed to providing support to our state and local partners to protect the safety of communities."

Bob Dane, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, suggested that the number of sanctuary communities would reduce significantly if the DOJ grants were discontinued. "One of the best fixes is to deny state and federal funding to the places that harbor illegal aliens," Dane said. "The entire country is slowly but surely moving from a sanctuary mentality to a 'fix it' mentality, but you've got these remaining pockets of resistance, many of them in big cities."  Dane continued, "You hit 'em where it hurts, in the wallet, and maybe they'll get it.

Illegal Immigration: The Victims – The Best Friends

In March 2007 two teenage girls, best friends, were killed in their car by a drunk illegal immigrant, a previous DUI offender. The father of one of the girls tells the story.

and Ali Kunhardt, aged 17
by Ray Tranchant - on Family Security Matters: I’ve forgiven the man who killed my 16-year-old daughter in a car accident in 2007. Tessa was killed by an illegal immigrant in Virginia Beach while sitting at a stop light. Her friend, Ali Kunhardt, 17, also perished instantly. The explosion was so loud that witnesses said it sounded like a bomb going off. They were hit from behind by a car traveling over 70 mph and driven by Alfredo Ramos, a previous DUI offender and alcoholic.

Tessa and Ali were beautiful girls with tons of future plans. They were skinny little girls, stuffed somewhere in the floorboards when the police and EMT crew arrived.
When I got to the hospital, the friends were lying in beds, separated by a privacy curtain. Both were perfectly still, skin cold to the touch. The EMTs and ER doctor could not save them.

Like Ramos did, hundreds of thousands of illegals in Virginia provide cheap labor to merchants, all invisible in a system good at looking the other way. Virginia doesn’t share a border with Mexico, so awareness isn’t as great here as in Arizona and California. Again and again, however, that system fails Americans. There have been hundreds of similar stories since Tessa and Ali died.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has said she will get to the bottom of why illegals are not deported when they are repeat offenders, as Ramos was. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison and was actually smug at the trial.

Through my experience, I have some advice about what must be done to solve the problem of illegal immigration. I now know what “sanctuary city” means, as Virginia Beach is accused of being, more than most ever will. It worries me that we would even consider giving 12 million foreigners legal rights to Social Security, health care, and schooling in a time of a $14 trillion national debt. I don’t believe the current system can process this many people and verify that some are not criminals or terrorists.

So, while securing the borders, America must somehow identify everyone using a certifiable national system without comprising constitutional rights. I don’t feel violated when an official checks my driver’s license or passport. It sure beats the funeral procession that I was part of.

Amnesty Bill Must be Crushed, Says Philanthropist

By Jim Kouri, CPP, Family Security Matters: When Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid faced low poll numbers and the threat of being replaced by a Republican on November 2, he quickly promised Latinos in Nevada that he would push for the DREAM Act, which would be a surreptitious amnesty program for illegal aliens. It is believed this promise brought out droves of Hispanics to vote for him and many observers suspect some of them were illegal aliens.

Now that Harry Reid has been re-elected, if he proposes an amnesty bill -- as he promised during his campaign -- in the lame duck session of congress, the consequences of this will be disastrous for unemployed Americans and must be crushed, according to the Coalition to Protect American Workers founder Henry Buhl, a philanthropist, community activist and art collector residing in New York.

Buhl's organization is the only full time humanitarian alternative to Federal detention and deportation for illegal immigrants. CPAW pays illegal immigrants seeking voluntary repatriation to return home. "There are currently between 4-6 million illegal immigrants working in the United States," Buhl says. "A successful amnesty bill will take away desperately needed jobs for Americans at lower prices."

Life for illegal immigrants can be quite grim. Instead of living the American dream, many live in impoverished conditions and cannot find employment. Many want to return home, but cannot because they lack resources and fear the government. Yet they would readily welcome private assistance to repatriate.

CPAW fully embraces legal immigration to the United States. The organization claims to seeks qualified referrals to assist immigrant individuals and families unlawfully present in the United States who wish to return home. New York City-based group believes that illegal immigration hurts the poorest of Americans, the unemployed, the homeless, the helpless who rely on strained social services, and face excessive job competition. CPAW believes it is not possible in this declining economy for unlawfully present, mostly low-wage workers, to be an economic asset. Rather, in an era of constrained or diminishing social services and low-wage jobs, such unfair competition only serves greedy employers and hurts Americans whose education, training and potential skills are limited.

CPAW does not propose voluntary repatriation as a solution to the "intractable" illegal immigration problem. It is a solution for people who want to go home and for those who want to avoid costly federal detention and deportation proceedings. In fact, privately funded repatriation can be achieved typically at less than 10 percent of full federal detention and deportation costs. This is a savings to the American taxpayer and affords a more dignified departure from America for the illegal immigrant.

Lies the press has told you about the DREAM Act

by Dave Gibson, Immigration Reform Examiner: Congress, under the Democratic leadership of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, will try once again to pass the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act) during their lame duck session, before the Christmas recess.

The DREAM Act would grant citizenship to adult illegal aliens who came to this country as minors if they attend college or join the military. It was first proposed in 2001, and has had the support of most Democrats as well as that of liberal Republicans.

However, what the press never reports is the fact that the House version of the bill would grant citizenship to qualifying illegal aliens up to the age of 35, and the Senate version has no age limit whatsoever.

Take for example this line which appeared in an article explaining the DREAM Act in the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday: “Roughly 800,000 teens and young adults would be eligible, according to immigration rights groups.”

The Chronicle article gives the reader the impression that the measure would only apply to teenagers and college-aged adults.

Of course, if the American people knew the real consequences of the bill, they would flood the Congress with emails, phone calls and letters the same way they did in 2007, when Sens. John McCain and Ted Kennedy tried to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, including violent gang members.

If the House version of the bill passed, untold millions of illegal aliens would be granted citizenship…something the Democrats and their propagandists in the press do not want you to know.

Massachusetts Governor Seeks to Reward Illegals

Paul Roy Jr, Boston Tea Party Examiner: Once again the voters of Massachusetts have shown they really don’t care about paying higher taxes and depriving honest hardworking people of the same opportunities as to others. We reelected Deval Patrick [D] despite warning he would continue his “immigration reform”. The latest is he wants to allow in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. Yes, that is illegal immigrants. And as seen in other programs for illegal immigrants, we the taxpayers of Massachusetts will foot the bill.

It is obvious the voters of Massachusetts like to work hard in order to pay more and more taxes to provide for people who are here illegally. It is not enough they have free healthcare, food stamps with which they can buy alcohol and public housing, now we will educate them on our dime as well. When is enough enough? When to we turn off the faucet of free money? We get less, they get more.

The left will argue we need to give everyone the same opportunity to succeed. And we agree except our definition of opportunity is different from theirs. Legal immigrants come here and work hard for what they get, they ask for nothing, and they do what needs to be done to get ahead. They follow the rules, entering the country legally which means waiting in line for their turn. They contribute to society.

Illegal immigrants do nothing but take. They are here for one reason and one reason only: to take what they can, take not earn. They will enter this country and complain while they are here. They want to fly their flags while disrespecting ours. They complain we don’t treat them equally, yet they are here illegally. And here in Massachusetts, our Governor wants to reward them.

It is time for this to stop. We must urge our legislators to not pass any bill allowing in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. We must stop the free gifts for these people and they will leave. We can no longer afford the price of having them as guests.

California Supreme Court OKs In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants

NewsMax: The California Supreme Court weighed in Monday on the politically charged immigration fray when it ruled that illegal immigrants are entitled to the same tuition breaks offered to in-state high school students to attend public colleges and universities. Although the ruling applies only to California, the case was watched closely nationally because nine other states, including New York and Texas, have similar laws.

Republican Congressmen Lamar S. Smith of Texas and Steve King of Iowa filed a so-called friends of the court brief urging that illegal immigrants be denied the reduced rate. The lawsuit the court considered was part of a broader legal assault led by immigration legal scholar Kris Kobach, who has filed numerous cases across the country seeking to restrict the rights of illegal immigrants. He represented a group of U.S. students who filed the lawsuit seeking to invalidate the California law. . . . [Full Story]

Harry Reid and the DREAM Act - How out-of-touch can one man be?

Curtis Coleman
Curtis Coleman, Contributing Author, ARRA News Service: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) announced this week that passage of the DREAM Act[1] is his number one priority. I mentioned this to my wife, Kathryn, over dinner last night, and she nailed it. “You’re kidding!  That’s his number one priority? With everything else that’s going on in this country? That’s his number one priority? How out-of-touch can one man be?”

Senator Reid (D-NV) inserted the DREAM Act provision into the Defense Authorization legislation in September. Arguing that the DREAM Act had too little relevance to defense, Senate Republicans successfully filibustered the defense authorization bill, temporarily ending the push by Reid.

Under the bill, students age 12-35 at the time of the enactment of the law who came to the United States before they were 16 and were raised in the United States continuously for at least five years, graduated from an American high school, obtained a GED or joined the military and are of “good moral character” could gain permanent legal status. It could grant citizenship to an estimated 800,000 to one million illegal immigrant youths who complete high school or military service.

A few months ago I granted an interview to National Progressive Radio (NPR). (Now there’s a place we can begin reducing the federal budget.) The NPR host asked me if I would support the DREAM Act as a path to citizenship. I responded that there was already a path to citizenship and that the nation’s immigration laws and regulations need to be enforced. And I expressed my belief that if the nation’s immigration laws were uniformly enforced todo ello the country would have more available resources for accelerating citizenship applications. I wasn’t a big hit with NPR.

The DREAM Act Portal website makes a compelling argument:
“Over three million students graduate from U.S. high schools every year. Most get the opportunity to test their dreams and live their American story. However, a group of approximately 65,000 youth do not get this opportunity; they are smeared with an inherited title, an illegal immigrant. These youth have lived in the United States for most of their lives and want nothing more than to be recognized for what they are, Americans.

“The DREAM Act is a bipartisan legislation…that can solve this hemorrhaging injustice in our society. Under the rigorous provisions of the DREAM Act, qualifying undocumented youth would be eligible for a 6 year long conditional path to citizenship that requires completion of a college degree or two years of military service.”
I can admit that I have struggled with this. If my family lived in some other countries and, solely because we lived there, my children were malnourished, under-educated and inadequately clothed, I would risk my life to get them to a better place with adequate food, clothing and opportunity. I understand why we have so many illegal immigrants.

I wanted to write here that their children become the ultimate victims, living under the stigma and insecurity of growing up as an illegal alien, which is true. The fact is, that life is better than the one they escaped. But there is such a thing as doing the right thing the wrong way.

Dan Stein of the Federation for American Immigration Reform was clearly right when he said
Passage will “send a clear message to parents that violating U.S. immigration laws will result in eventual citizenship and access to expensive taxpayer-financed benefits for their kids.”
It is one matter to fail to enforce our nation’s laws.  It is another entirely to reward those who break them.

I would that America had such limitless resources that we could throw open our doors and without restriction or caution say,
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

America does not have that unlimited capacity.  Our ultimate demise lies at the end of our attempt to act otherwise.

It is adequately tragic that the children of illegal aliens are victims of their parents’ illicit actions. It is deplorable that Reid would use their plight for no other purpose than to attempt to advance his party’s political fortunes.

[1] “DREAM” – the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act introduced March 26, 2009 by Sens. Richard Durbin (D-IL) and Richard Lugar (R- IN).

Lame Duck Amnesty Vote Stalled Until After Thanksgiving

NumbersUSA: PELOSI HAS POSTPONED AMNESTY VOTE AT LEAST UNTIL AFTER THANKSGIVING

Earlier this week U.S. House Speaker Pelosi announced she hoped to bring up the DREAM Act amnesty to a vote in the first week of the Lame Duck session (next week).

Today, House Democratic leaders announced that they aren't going to deal with the amnesty next week. They will be out of town for Thanksgiving the week after that. So, we are now fighting to prohibit the vote the first week of December when Congress returns.

Every day (and especially week) that we delay the vote, the less likely the amnesty will get a hearing. There are at most three weeks left in which it can be raised after Thanksgiving. It still is a real danger. But Congress also has some major business it absolutely has to handle before Christmas.


On Election Day, there was a dramatic shift in the Immigration Balance of Power. Speaker Pelosi and the pro-amnesty groups know the lame-duck session may be their last chance to pass the DREAM Act. The bill aims to provide an amnesty for illegal aliens who are college bound or serve in the military, but it goesmuch further. Millions more illegal aliens would receive the amnesty, and the bill contains no provisions to increase enforcement or secure the border.

It's been a long election season, and we know the winter holidays are right around the corner. The DREAM Act supporters are counting on the fact that amnesty opponents will be distracted during the lame-duck session.

Prove them wrong and take 5 minutes to let your Members of Congress know how you feel!
Your job is to continue to make the amnesty seem so controversial that your 3 Members of Congress will be telling their leaders that they don't want the amnesty brought up as a vote.

As we have beaten every amnesty in every year starting in 2001, we have learned that it is always easier when the process gets dragged out. The announcement of delay today is a very good sign.

THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE SO FAR IN THE CURRENT AMNESTY CRISIS. THE AMNESTY LEADERS KNOW THAT THIS LAME DUCK SESSION IS THE ONLY POSSIBLE CHANCE THEY HAVE FOR AT LEAST TWO MORE YEARS. THE AMERICAN VOTERS LAST WEEK CHOSE A NEW CONGRESS THAT IS STRONGLY ANTI-AMNESTY.

Florida Legislature Set To Introduce Florida Immigration Law

by Javier Manjarres: After Tuesday’s elections gave Republicans a veto-proof majority in both chambers of the Florida Legislature – 28-12 in the Senate and 80-40 in the House, one of the first legislative initiatives that was expected to be introduced is the much ballyhooed “Arizona style” immigration law that cracks down on illegal immigration, provided that a member of the legislature were to file such a bill.  Incoming Senate President-elect Mike Haridopolos is a strong advocate for the introduction of such a law and has previously stated that,“I wouldn’t be surprised if a member of the Senate and/or House representative files a bill. If we choose to go that way, we’re going to have a Florida law, not an Arizona law.”

In a phone conversation this morning with Senator President-elect Haridopolos, the Senator reiterated his position on the issue and leaked what he and his colleagues in Tallahassee intend to do about it.
You believe the Federal government has failed us on this issue- Florida needs to step up and get it right. We will be holding extensive hearings in December or January on getting all the facts on table and all the hyperbole off the table. – Mike Haridopolos
A source close to several State Senators and House Representatives has told the Shark Tank that no less than four members of the Legislature are interested in filing a bill that resembles Arizona’s immigration law but will address Florida’s unique situation as it pertains to illegal immigration.  Senator Haridopolos confirmed my source’s information and said that he expected a bill to be proposed any day.  An immigration bill filed in the legislature would be sure to pass, and be signed by Governor-elect Rick Scott.  Governor-elect Scott has been one of the most ardent supporters of the Arizona immigration law which allows for law enforcement officials to make an inquiry as to a person’s immigration status and require that an individual provide documentation about their immigration status.

Since Florida does not have a dry Federal border, the unique immigration challenge that Florida faces is the fact that the majority of people that are here in the state illegally are because they have overstayed their visas.  While there are certainly illegal immigrants coming to Florida from other border states, the main issue here in Florida are individuals who have expired visas. Regardless of whether these individuals illegal crossed our Federal borders or decided not to got back to their respective countries after being granted a student, work, or tourist visa, illegal is illegal, and the Legislature and the Governor are both primed to act.

Republican Gov. Jan Brewer’s Re-Election Fueled by Tough Immigration Law

By Edwin Mora, CNSNews.com – It is “very clear” that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s opposition to illegal immigration helped her win easy re-election last week, a spokesman from the governor’s office told CNSNews.com. Brewer defeated Democrat Terry Goddard with 55 percent of the vote to his 42 percent.

Paul Senseman, a spokesman for Brewer, told CNSNews.com that Arizona’s tough new immigration law (SB 1017) was a factor in Brewer’s victory. . . . There is no doubt that that kind of vocal opposition, including some demonstrations on the streets, helped motivate a lot of people who questioned, ‘What’s the problem with Arizona enforcing the rule of law?” Senseman said. He noted that the Arizona law mirrors federal law, prompting people to question why the federal government wouldn’t welcome Arizona’s assistance in enforcing immigration law.

“When the governor says, ‘I cannot tolerate the level of narco-terrorist activity, drug smuggling, human smuggling, and violence going on in my state on a daily basis, and if there’s not going to be action from the feds, I am going to take action myself,’ I think it certainly had an impact,” Senseman said.

Brewer signed SB 1070 on April 23. The law makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally. It allows police officers who make lawful stops to ask about a person's legal status “where reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States.” . . .

National Organization Warns of Illegal Immigrant Voters

"If estimates of 12,000,000 illegals in the U.S. are accurate, that is 4% of the U.S. population of approximately 300,000,000. If in just one district in Florida, 3% of the registered voters were illegal immigrants, that means a very high percentage of illegal immigrants are registering and voting, even if that particular district is not typical!" Source: Illegal-Immigrants are voting in American Elections

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is calling on allied organizations, Tea Party groups, and conservative campaigns and activists to transport like minded voters to the polls on Election Day. This will compensate for voter fraud and illegal immigrant voters being fielded by the Democratic political machines.

"America is about to experience our first Chicago Style national election," said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. "Democrats are trying to limit their losses on Election Day by cheating and encouraging illegal aliens to vote in the 2010 elections, which by the way is a felony!"

William Gheen's concerns arise from numerous reports documented in the media of illegal aliens registering to vote in many places in America. These concerns are compounded by the knowledge that most state boards of elections do not verify that registering voters are legal US Citizens. When the state of Georgia tried to check the status of registered voters, their efforts were blocked by the Justice Department, under Eric Holder and President Obama!

On October 28, WSBTV and the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that their recent comparison of jury duty records and voter registrations found hundreds of non-citizens registered to vote and hundreds actually voting! "The Obama administration's Amnesty legislation would make millions of illegal aliens new voters who would permanently displace millions of conservative voters in American elections forevermore," said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "It appears to me that Obama and the Democratic political machinery that roll vans through Hispanic neighborhoods on Election Day want those illegal immigrants voting in 2010."

The Obama administration, Holder's Justice Department, and Napolitano's Department of Homeland Security have made it clear that they are against Americans who oppose Amnesty for illegals and doing all they can to aid and abet illegal aliens in America. While addressing illegal aliens and their supporters through the Spanish media recently, Obama asked them to "punish OUR enemies!" on Election Day.

Poll observers are important but will be unable to determine the legal status of voters. Thus, ALIPAC is advising all conservative voters to overcome voter fraud and illegal immigrant voters by voting and physically transporting every like minded voter they can carry in their vehicles to the polls.

ALIPAC is conducting interviews with the national media and talk radio shows across America advising conservative voters to vote like this, as this is the last time their vote will ever matter because this will be the case, if Obama gives illegal aliens Amnesty and voting rights!

Conservative voters are advised to map and locate each family member, neighbor, friend, or Facebook buddy who opposes any part of President Obama's agenda (The NoBamas) and to physically put them in vehicles and transport them to the polls. While conservative voters are not accustomed to this kind of voter mobilization, the historic situation at hand calls for it.

"Conservatives usually do not need or want people transporting them to the polls," said William Gheen. "But this year we must load conservatives into our cars and watch them enter the polling place with our own eyes; to compensate for the buses and vans that will roll in to canvas the minority neighborhoods where Democrats see transportable voters. We have to fight back against the Chicago style Democratic machine."
