Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.
“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.
Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. This is not unlike the Administration in Mexico pursuant to the talks that transpired between Mexico and the United States last week.
Agents cannot use guns against “a moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” say the instructions. Now to us this news is so encouraging we are prompted to ask, “If a fleeing vehicle moving at speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour would not everyone around wonder why it is fleeing?”
The new instructions do allow agents to use guns to defend themselves from vehicles that drive at them. “Agents shall not discharge their firearms at a moving vehicle unless the agent has a reasonable belief that… deadly force is being used against an agent,” the new instructions say.
However, the instructions also suggest that officers be penalized if they do not step back. Agents “should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicle’s path,” according to new instructions. The new policy “seems to be a response to political pressure from special interests,” Shawn P. Moran, vice president of the Border Patrol agents’ union, said in a telephone interview. After all why not look at the Open Borders advocacy group, or maybe even look into the work that Bill and Matilda Gates, George Soros, or Mark Zuckerberg are doing with their some, new found riches.
The new curbs were praised by advocates for greater immigration, including Juanita Molina, director of the Border Action Network. New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, and Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Menendez is one of the drafters of the June 2013 Senate immigration bill, which would boost the inflow of legal immigrants and guest workers up to 40 million over the next decade. During the same period, roughly 40 million Americans will turn 18.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose), the top Democrat on the House immigration policy and border security subcommittee, also called on Customs and Border Protection to be more forthcoming.
These activists include the leaders of such organizations as the National Lawyers Guild, the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, and the American Civil Liberties Union. Blurring the distinction between citizens and non-citizens, radical immigration activists depict any calls for the strict enforcement of immigration laws as manifestations of racism, ethnocentrism, and xenophobia.
Speaking of blurring the lines of distinction, we are not sure if any organization is more out of touch with the issues as these folks mentioned. Blurring the notions of racism, ethnocentrism, and xenophobia are catch phrases aimed in large part to confuse or play upon the empathy of those who are borderline in their own personal decisions.
We ask this question in response, “Where is the Nation’s security even mentioned within the collective conscience of these organizations? This is why we wonder if these are noble efforts. We believe that U.S. sovereignty and national security be at the front of every decision up for consideration. Moreover, it would be nice to see this language in these organizations mission statements. But nonetheless as it shapes up concerning special interest groups, lobbyists, and advocacy groups nothing whatsoever is found in the offering documents of these organizations.
It still remains, how can we get amnesty for our membership, how can we assure illegal immigrants Constitutional rights, and the big one, how can we get the U.S. taxpayer to opt for more for these people?
As for me this is going to be flamboyantly exciting. As many who already know Mr. George Will has been an idol to me in his thinking and writing primarily since my undergraduate days in college. Did I think there would ever come that time in my life that I would ever debate against him? Not on your life! However today I’ve read some issues that I feel confident about and would like to comment on them.
According to George Will he espouses, “distilled to their discouraging essence, Republicans’ reasons for retreating from immigration reform reflect waning confidence in American culture and in the political mission only Republicans can perform — restoring U.S. economic vigor. Without this, the nation will have a dismal future only Democrats can relish: government growing in order to allocate scarce opportunity.
Please do not misunderstand me; that is quite a claim by Mr. Will, albeit I do see some merit to his thesis. However, let us break this down matter by matter. Retreating from immigration reform predicated upon waning confidence in American culture and especially in the political mission that Republican’s do well – the ability to restore economic vigor in the U.S.
Although these words may have some truth to them, it is essential that Mr. Will understand that as far as managerial leadership is concerned, it is those who are in their prime that must carry on the utility of American Patriot Politics.
Again Mr. Will makes a scathing point with this being written. “Many Republicans say immigration policy divides their party. If, however, the party becomes a gaggle of veto groups enforcing unanimities, it will become what completely harmonious parties are: small.”
As I read the wording, Mr. Will is addressing what James Madison would refer to as “factions.” I believe there are points to agree with in his writing as well as to disagree with. Starting with, “many Republicans say immigration policy divides their party.” Welcome to America! I am not altogether certain that if we picked two or three people off the street at random, there would not be some kind of argument from someone.
For most people around me it sums out at the entitlements that are unequally distributed. Another matter that has come up is that these particular illegal immigrants are indeed more insecure than the politicians about their very freedom.
The most gigantic concern seems to be in the areas of perception and what are they doing about their plight? By perception I mean these illegals no matter where they are from are feeling a manifold pressure on them now. Not knowing where, when, or if they should purchase a house or other tangible widgets must be discouraging.
The other point stated about their plight is in reference to how they have been acting since their arrival to the U.S. Just because someone has traveled in unpleasant topography with scourging temperatures – does not earn them a bloody thing. Period. It is not as, one leaves home on an adventure to be rewarded for their efforts.
Many Republicans see in immigrants only future Democratic votes. This descent into Democratic-style identity politics is unworthy of Republicans, and unrealistic. U.S. history tells a consistent story — the party identified with prosperity, and hence opportunity, prospers.
I must agree with the two following points, that as an upstanding citizen in this nation it is one thing to exclaim these and it is quite another to make action plans to prevent them from happening. Those two are, “Many Republicans have understandable cultural concerns, worrying that immigrants from this hemisphere do not experience the ‘psychological guillotine’ that severed trans-Atlantic immigrants from prior allegiances.
And secondly, “Many Republicans rightly say that control of borders is an essential ingredient of national sovereignty. But net immigration from Mexico has recently been approximately zero. Border Patrol spending, which quadrupled in the 1990s, tripled in the 2000s. With illegal entries near a 40-year low, and a 2012 Government Accountability Office assessment that border security was then 84 percent effective, will a “border surge” of $30 billion more for the further militarization (actually, the
East Germanization) of the 1,969 miles assuage remaining worries?
Dear Mr. Will:
The statistical data you used in your argument with the Republicans and immigration control, especially in the last paragraph written, what has been the costs? Mexico immigration is at zero; Border Patrol spending of the 1990s and 2000s has quadrupled along with the GAO reporting that 84 percent of control along the southern border has been effective – rubbish sir, balderdash! Account for our readers sir how there are somewhere between 11 and 30 million illegals in our nation.
CENTER FOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING…
Until President Obama carries out his responsibility to enforce existing immigration laws, conservatives in the House have no reason to trust him with any changes. A top Heritage Foundation policy expert says in an interview about amnesty for illegal immigrants.
“The Constitution invests him with the authority to enforce the laws, and that is really where the immigration problem is breaking down right now. We need to see that the president is serious about enforcing the law before we can take any of these other measures,” Derrick Morgan, Heritage’s vice president for domestic and economic policy.
Obama has not been “a true partner” in the challenges of securing the border, toughening workplace enforcement, and improving the system of legal immigration. What is certain is that the president continues to show only up too…a point with security, enforcement, and at the very least improving the entire immigration system.
Until the untruths stop, as well as misinformation on deportations, and the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) somehow either made workable, or dropped altogether, who in their right mind could possibly trust this president at his word. The situation remains that the Republican Party has been there to negotiate and debate the various issues.
However, can one imagine the frustration of nonsensical “bipartisan” means of reform pursuant to The Gang of Eight? Moreover, take one look at the way Senator Harry Reid runs the Senate. Would anyone of you or especially I have any comfort whatsoever trying to arrange even a sit-down session for discussion? In all openness it is the behavior of the Democrat Party and their unwillingness to at least communicate where the entire process breaks down.
Couple that with an admittedly Constitution-breaking rule of law as demonstrated by President Obama on numerous occasions and still has the audacity to espouse in the State of the Union address that he still has a phone and a pen implying that Executive Orders will be used unless the two Houses of Congress “bring me something.” He still is skirting due-process in under-handing Congress which indelibly shows his true self the person who ignores separation of powers, as well as utilizing checks and balances.
As reported yesterday, the Obama Administration drastically inflated statistics to show that it has deported a record-high number of illegal immigrants with criminal records, according to federal data obtained by a nonprofit university group dedicated to researching the government.
The new documents reveal that the figure is actually at an all-time low and rapidly decreasing, leaving the Obama Administration with egg on its face just weeks after bragging about removing an unprecedented number of criminal aliens. In mid-October, Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director jubilantly announced that nearly 55% of the record 396,906 illegal immigrants deported in fiscal year 2011 were convicted of felonies or crimes.
The real figure is less than 15%, according to federal records obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a data research center that provides detailed information about the operation of hundreds of government agencies. The number of deported criminal aliens has been declining steadily throughout the past year, the TRAC analysis found, even though fiscal year 2010 had an already low level of 16.5%.
In the first quarter of the fiscal year (October – December 2010) 15.8 percent of deported illegal immigrants were charged with engaging in criminal activity, 15.1 percent during the second quarter (January – March 2011), 14.9 percent during the third quarter (April – June 2011), and finally 13.8 percent during the fourth quarter (July – September 2011). The average rate across the four quarters for FY 2011 was 14.9 percent, according to records obtained from the government through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
This certainly contradicts the administration’s claims that it is focusing on removing criminals while it grants backdoor amnesty to otherwise “law-abiding” foreigners living in the U.S. illegally. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) even issued new guidelines ordering immigration agents to prioritize deporting convicted criminals and those who pose public safety and national security threats. (Read more of statistics)
Just sharing here the Republican Party is not squeamish is showing their non-reciprocated attempts of assisting illegal immigrants:
1. Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA), 1986: A blanket amnesty for some 2.7 million illegal aliens
2. Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens
3. Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994
4. Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty, 1997: An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America
5. Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA), 1998: An amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti
6. Late Amnesty, 2000: An amnesty for some illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 400,000 illegal aliens
7. LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000: A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty, an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.
THE PRESIDENT MISSPEAKS AGAIN
The following information is a response to the notion of numbers crunching, specifically those committed by members in the Obama administration which as up to this instant are considered as reported to the Washington Post by Mr. Andrew Becker for The Center for Investigative Reporting on Monday, December 6, 2010.
I do not believe that I am wrong or even in error, not even a smidgen when predicated upon the evidence albeit solicited, volunteered, or received from members of the agencies who have been doing this otherwise faulty reporting for year’s even decades.
This is why I can be assured when I make a claim such as until we get a person or persons within the White House who rather than lie, pad numbers, and so easily obtain information that is clearly a misrepresentation of material fact. I will commit to the view that our government and its alleged officers are not being truthful with the American people.
In particular predicated upon Mr. Andrew Becker’s report which diligently leads one to believe that numbers have been tooled with by President’s Clinton, Bush, and Obama and/or their over eager needing to please the boss at any cost.
The travesty behind this situation is so numerous that one needs to reflect and critically think why a person needs to do these kinds of acts. As far as President Clinton’s term of eight years and President George W. Bush’s eight years, and all things being equal, the record-setting pace in which President Obama allegedly has been on during just his six-year term; collectively we have twenty-two years of misinformation that has been preconceived with aforethought. And as citizens of the United States one wonders why the economy is in the state that it is in.
Speaking about the year-end deportation figures to a group of Hispanic reporters in late September, the President said:
“The statistics are actually a little deceptive because what we’ve been doing is, with the stronger border enforcement, we’ve been apprehending folks at the borders and sending them back. That is counted as a deportation, even though they may have only been held for a day or 48 hours, sent back – that is counted as a deportation.”
So from the top down we have the President admittedly saying that the statistics are a little deceptive – why – simply because he says there is a change while apprehending illegal immigrants at the border and sending them back. All in all that is not a change in deportation policy whatsoever.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, said the Obama administration has severely curtailed raids on work sites to net illegal immigrants. And he pointed to statistics that showed only 44 percent of the U.S.-Mexico border is considered under “operational control.”
But the statistics show the number of people returned after being apprehended on the border is down substantially, while deportations of those caught in the interior has risen.
The ratio of those with criminal convictions, however, has indeed risen significantly, from about one-third of deportees at the beginning of the administration to about half in fiscal year 2010. And more than two-thirds of the ones without criminal convictions were either recent border-crosser’s or repeat immigration violators.
If the President’s administration is having difficulty in understanding what the law actually states then it is recommended that it’s time to roll up the sleeves and get to the source documents. In this case that would of course be current immigration and naturalization law.
The United States has laws on the books that when exercised properly, with the sufficient personnel, can and will do the job. U.S. policies and laws aimed at improving the nation’s immigration system have unintentionally spurred more immigrants to stay in the United States, according to a new paper released in June 2013.
Let’s see…has the principles within the Obama administration encouraged your outlook on immigration reform. Furthermore, with the hapless Executive Orders as well as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are seriously showing the point that during that period of time the real push for amnesty began.
Otherwise the crux of the problem is that Congress routinely makes consequential policy decisions with scant consideration of the underlying dynamics of the social processes involved.
FOUNDING FATHERS ON IMMIGRATION
Hello and welcome again to Founding Fathers Quote’s Friday! This is a little meme that was put together years ago – and now when I look back at some of my earlier articles dating from 2007 it openly stuns me! Credit due where credit is due of course, and in this particular case this meme was originally designed and put together by Hercules Mulligan, who at the time maintained one of the most perfect and well-versed blogs around.
That is when a lot of rubbish began about something I know very little about referred to as “The Illuminati” which Hercules Mulligan was actively (spare time) writing about. Yet when someone takes one’s writing and viciously attacks it, I believe as much as Mulligan did that it was time for proof to hit the pudding.
He calmly informed me that he was going to finish his book and knowing that I have published books, made the request to be left alone. Hey c’mon already! With even an outside chance of gaining the publishing rights I assured him I would leave him alone and wished him the best of luck in all his endeavors.
“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader…” Samuel Adams in letter to James Warren 1779.
In Samuel Adams’ letter to James Warren during 1779 there is nothing more important than what he is actually saying. He states that a general dissolution (breaking down of one’s known ways) of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the entire military of the common enemy.
Further he espouses, “While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue then [they] will be ready to surrender their rights, liberties, and their actual ways of living to the first external or internal invader.”
Next up…Alexander Hamilton, who after being at odds with something Thomas Jefferson was going on with, namely precisely what our president Barack Obama has to some measure already done, and now after the GOP launched their Republican Principles most of us feel much the same as Mr. Hamilton did.
During his campaign run against Aaron Burr, Jefferson simply switched in everything be believed in with regards to immigration policy during that time. Ostensibly, what Jefferson had done was started talking about, writing about, and stumping all around about was the simple notion of dropping all requirements of a previous assimilation responsibilities. During that time just before 1800 Jefferson began arguing about the requirements of naturalization.
Jefferson believed that a fourteen year residency requirement was too long, and demanded immediate naturalization (meaning citizenship then…) This is IMPORTANT: During his First Annual Message to Congress, Jefferson argued that the longer waiting period from 5 years originally to 14 years caused the “unhappy fugitives” distress. Furthermore, Jefferson believed that for the bona fide reason of embarking his life to America should be sufficient for citizenship. The important part mentioned earlier was that through counting, Jefferson and his followers believed that too strong were the votes of recent immigrants.
Hamilton was Jefferson’s longtime enigma. Being the Secretary of the Treasury under President Washington, Hamilton did not believe that should be given as cheaply as Jefferson was proposing in 1801.
In two different newspaper editorials Hamilton summed it up this way;
In the recommendation to admit indiscriminately foreign emigrants of every description to the privileges of American citizens, on their first entrance into our country, there is an attempt to break down every pale which has been erected for the preservation of a national spirit and a national character; and to let in the most powerful means of perverting and corrupting both the one and the other. (Published in “The Examination,” nos. 7-9 (1801—1802)
It seems rather inconsequential, but after President Thomas Jefferson’s first term the assimilation and residency period for new emigrants was again put forth to 5 years were it has been ever since. It is furthermore important to state that Mr. Jefferson a true founding father in addition to Alexander Hamilton, Samuel Adams, and James Warren did not elect to pull out an Executive Order to see to it that his way or the highway was achieved.
LISTEN TO THE IMMIGRANTS OF OLD…
Many times during life’s tumultuous times such as sky high unemployment, an economy that really hasn’t done anything for the last five to six years, hopefully you will agree with me that when the centralized federal government begins doing mindless issues such as negotiating terms and agreements for criminals or those who have openly committed crimes against the Nation.
To just walk freely into our country and gain amnesty, free health care, welfare, and unemployment because hey! they just arrived and need some walking around money. Why don’t we chose a day of any month and open the lines for the illegal-undocumented-unnatural-individuals issue them a US Benefits card and open the door to issue only to them food stamps.
The United States of America and the Congress as well as the President thereto have issued nothing less than seven amnesty contracts with those who have arrived in unconventional ways. And the House Republicans as well as the Senate, and House Republicans and Democrats are writing the new amnesty laws as I type. Senator’s Schumer, McCain, Rubio, and Graham, what is it do you think is going to happen if you continue with your plans and grant a massive 11 to 25 million person amnestyfor those who are not acting as though something that is not theirs and yet gained illegally is going to accomplish?
During days such as I’ve described all I want to do is get home and read “other” immigrant stories – those who have not protested in the streets at everything from racial profiling to accommodating ways to be located in this nation at eight months and thirty days before the newest arrival of unchartered and unearned citizenship?
Please…what cheers me up is reading the stories of immigrants of older times arriving to this country.
No sooner was the Statue of Liberty erected than its meaning began to change. It quickly acquired a new significance from its location on Bedloe’s Island in New York harbor. Nearby was Ellis Island, which during the late nineteenth century became the largest point of entry for immigrants to the United States. In the moment of their arrival, they shared a common experience that became part of the mythology of the republic.
Imagine the agony of parting and the anxiety of an unknown future being very painful for most of them. The long sea voyage was difficult, and often times dangerous. Then at last they reached the New World, and had their first sight of Liberty with her upraised torch.
Most of the immigrants retained an indelible memory of the moment. One particular gentleman who was arriving from Italy, never forgot the instant when his ship sailed into New York harbor and the Statue of Liberty suddenly came into view. He remembered that a great silence fell suddenly across the deck of the immigrant ship – a silence filled with awe and hope and glorious inspiration. Parents reached down and raised their children above the rails to see the Statue of Liberty, “shadowy through the mist.” This gentleman even recalled the feeling that Liberty was beckoning to each of them, bidding them welcome in the great republic that was to be their home. .
I believe that this was the attitude that built America. This was the attitude that immigrants had being what we so aptly refer to as “America…the land of immigrants.”
Not that anyone one of these immigrants planned or conspired, to break any law to achieve their goal – no they endured the process. And before they asked for a thing mind you, they worked until almost death to fend for their family members.
TIME TO REVIEW VISA UNDERSTANDING…
If one were to look at the array of visas offered to potential immigrants from other countries, allow me to say that their options are ready just about everything one could possible imagine. Just as a quick ramble-off let us consider just a few of these visas for cursory purposes. Then let us look at them with what it is that the multitude of visas provide both for the benefit of the potential immigrant and the U.S. as well as what cost will it be.
First the easiest ones that don’t take a lot of explanation; however, please understand that each application of course works both ways – normally one for the applicant and the other for the applicant’s family and/or relatives, domestic partners, and many other forms as well.
We believe these to be the most sought: Application to work in the United States (Form I 765), A visitor’s visa (B-2), Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Form I 821D), Temporary Protected Status (Form I 821), and this is where things really get mixed up; El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Syria. We are reminded that the expiration date for all TPS status is often extended.
And we would hope you would ask about the Diversity Lottery. Ready? Is it possible to win a green card? Yes! There is actually an official lottery offered by the United States government to give individuals from under-represented countries the opportunity to live and work in the United States permanently and legally. It is commonly known as the Green Card Lottery. The official title is Diversity Visa Program and it is operated by the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs. Now on to H-1B visas.
Not everyone agrees with the desire to expand H-1B visas.
The H-1B visa is referred to as a “professional” visa category. In a recent article in the Stanford News top scholars were discussing the implications of this new type of visa, albeit it is not that new. The article is titled, Stanford Scholars see Political Hurdles in Immigration Reform. This particular type of visa is the one used in the article so I compiled some information. (For further reading click here.)
Minian said she believes that is unfair to bring more skilled workers to this country through H-1B visas while blocking employment of other migrants who have already built families and communities here.
Here is one dissenting opinion: Expanding H-1B visas is a vulnerable concern. The H-1B is a non-immigrant visa in the United States under the Immigration and Nationality Act, section 101(a)(15)(H). It allows US employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. If a foreign worker in H-1B status quits or is dismissed from the sponsoring employer, the worker must either apply for and be granted a change of status to another non-immigrant status, find another employer (subject to application for adjustment of status and/or change of visa), or leave the US.
In addition, in the case of “H-1B-dependent employers” (usually those with more than 15% of their workers on H-1B visas), the law requires these employers to recruit U.S. workers in “good faith” (8 U.S.C. 1182(n) (1)(G)).
As a general rule, a person who is in one non-immigrant status may not change status or change employers in that status until he or she applies with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for such a change, and such change is granted. However, a provision called “H-1B portability” permits certain individuals already in the United States in H-1B status to commence employment for a new employer once a new employer’s H-1B petition is filed with USCIS.
Congress has placed a numerical “cap” on H-1B visas. For Fiscal Year 2015 (which begins October 1, 2014), the limit is 65,000 cap-subject H-1B visas, with an additional 20,000 visas available for individuals who have earned a master’s degree or higher from an accredited U.S. educational institution. Although some exemptions from the cap may be available (principally for institutions of higher education), most employers are subject to the cap. As with last year, we expect the H-1B cap to be reached the first week of April. Once the H-1B cap has been reached, employers will be unable to file new cap-subject H-1B petitions until April 1, 2015.
Consequently, employers are advised to make H-1B sponsorship decisions within the next few weeks. It is important to prepare H-1B petitions as early as possible—and well before April 1st—so that a complete petition can be submitted to USCIS on the first day the quota opens. USCIS received more than 85,000 H-1B petitions during the first week of April 2013, and established an H-1B lottery to determine which petitions would be accepted for processing.
Driver charged with murder in fatal crash in Milford headed for trial
Despite talks of a potential plea change, a driver charged with second-degree murder in connection with a fatal crash in Milford in 2011 is headed for trial on April 3.
Nicolas Dutan Guaman, a 34-year-old illegal immigrant from Ecuador, is charged in the death of 23-year-old Matthew Denice of Milford.
Judge Kenton-Walker had initially ruled after a four-hour competency hearing last April that Guaman was not competent since he could not understand the legal system. She had given a 60-day deadline to reassess his competency, but the process took longer due to Guaman’s need for an interpreter. However, after spending months getting an education, Judge Janet Kenton-Walker ruled in November that Guaman, who received months of education on the American legal system, was competent to stand trial.

Knife madman: ‘Noise’ drove me to slay family
The illegal-immigrant madman charged with massacring his cousin’s wife and four children said he committed the Brooklyn murders because they had tried to move him into a noisy “mahjong spot,” court papers revealed Monday — as the alleged killer was found unfit for trial. “A few days ago my cousin took me to Flushing to stay there. It’s a mahjong spot,” accused killer Mingdong Chen, 26, told cops, according to court papers.
“I didn’t like staying there because it was too loud. So I argued and took a knife to them.”

Plea change hearing set for man charged with participating in deadly Miss. prison riot
One guard was killed and 20 people were injured in the May 20, 2012, riot at the privately run Adams County Correctional Facility in Natchez, which holds immigrants convicted of crimes while being in the U.S. illegally.
Humberto Cuellar, who had previously pleaded not guilty, is now scheduled of a change of plea hearing March 11 in U.S. District Court in Natchez.
Cuellar’s attorney asked for his client to have mental evaluation last year. A judge ruled in December that Cuellar is competent to stand trial.
Educating illegal immigrants is costly
The U.S. Census Bureau just released 2008 figures showing the national average total per-pupil funding from all revenue sources was $12,028. Although estimates of the number of school-age children of illegal immigrants do not separate those attending public vs. private schools, it is reasonable to assume that nearly all attend public schools since most come from lower-income families.
Therefore, if one multiplies $12,028 by the roughly 3.7 million students with illegal-immigrant parents, then one gets a national total funding cost of $44.5 billion.
The actual cost of schooling these children could be higher because many education dollars are earmarked for special purposes. At the federal level, Title I funds are sent to schools to support disadvantaged children, which benefits many children of illegal immigrants.
In California, the state’s Economic Impact Aid program provides tax dollars to fund English-language acquisition, which aids children of illegal immigrants. Capital costs for school construction may have increased at a higher rate because of the influx of children of illegal immigrants.
As for chain migration and citizenship upon birth – Although almost three-quarters of the children of illegal immigrants were born in the United States and are therefore citizens, had their parents not entered the U.S. illegally these children likely would not be in U.S. public schools and would not require taxpayer funding. Thus, it is fair to say that their education cost stems from their parents’ illegal entry into this country. Please read on at click here.
The writer reminds everyone interested as well as the “What Next” crowd that the above stated monetary figures are predicated upon data that was collected in 2008. Whilst reading the story at both Pew Research Center as well as the acj.com it seems very likely that one could almost double those figures and/or the actual number of illegal aliens insofar as the population just about doubles each decade.
As most of us will attest (those over 30 years of age) perhaps the biggest barrier to entry of birth-control pills was in the notion of brainwashing elementary school students, middle school students, and those who were in high school. Some people today would have disclaimed, “oh my gosh, they’re brainwashing my children…” At any rate the idea was not well-accepted and considered mind boggling.
Unfortunately in those days it seemed as though the parents were definitely on the governments side and did not find it brainwashing whatsoever. Nope, in my running circles it was far more that the parents supported birth-control over the other side, meaning the unplanned, underage, and public humiliation over the unwanted pregnancy.
Just for a moment allow one to realize that all of this was during a time when federal politicians were far more interested in their constituents and human rights than today’s congressional staffs, church clergy and advisors, and the list is endless.
However why the generated huge public push by on-set television anchormen as smoke slowly drifted up from their open ashtrays. What it is that we were told is that with the population in China and India if it kept on as it was then the earth would soon run out of room to accommodate all of the people?
Therefore a nation or group of nations needed to make sure that their women were not getting pregnant. And this is perhaps one of the more indelible times in American history. America began sending trained personnel all over the world particularly most African nations, Middle East as well as southwest Asia to literally insert and place any number of inter-uterine devices, IUD’s into the waiting lines of women who had been given the same story as we were told.
Yet what was never explained to the people of the United States is that these women were paid to have this device inserted. So what? So many of the doctors and nurses began to realize that they were seeing the same faced individuals that only a day before were implanted.
The alarm was that these women were to have the IUD’s in place for 30 days before seeing the doctors again. Well it was soon found out that the women who had been patiently waiting in line, once upon having the IUD implanted immediately went about the process of removing them to receive another and of course the money often during the same day and visit.
Even now this process continues albeit to somehow distort the ethnic rise that will undo a community quicker than almost everything known will. It is still normally the first act of legislation that the new incoming president will sign.
However, we ask anyone to write out some kind of response, comment, or answer to this following question:
If the US government went to the point to produce literature, films, and recordings for the educational environment as well as the evening news programs, and public service announcements warning of population control issues…
What then makes it so easy for them to say oh, what 11 to 20 million more people going to do? I have not witnessed the land mass of the USA getting any bigger, however I have witnessed it getting smaller. Furthermore, what will 11 million or more illegal immigrants going to do to the environment of this portion of the planet we live on?
These are just two of many questions that I have based on an unforgettable time during my life.
The Inter-Academy Panel Statement on Population Growth, circa 1994, has stated that many environmental problems, such as rising levels of atmospheric carbon oxide, global warming, and pollution, are aggravated by the population expansion. Other problems associated with overpopulation include the increased demand for resources such as fresh water and food, starvation and malnutrition, consumption of natural resources (such as fossil fuels) faster than the rate of regeneration, and deterioration in living conditions. However, some believe that waste and over-consumption, especially by wealthy nations, is putting more strain on the environment than overpopulation.
Someone, anyone has got to tell our fabulous elected Congressional officials to think — CRITICALLY — before making unpopular and unwanted decisions.
After having a bit of rest, relaxation, and deliberate time for reflection it was absolutely amazing as to how the correlation of the Republican Blueprint for Immigration became a rather inordinate document with language (we have decided) that is hiding some elements of reform, whilst at the same time leaving a lot of actual business open to scrutiny of a major proportion.
All one need to do is visit Yahoo’s homepage, click any one of the articles about the Republican Blueprint and then in the comments section get ready for confusion, misinterpretation, misinformation, and in some cases, abuse.
This is exactly what we tried to do yesterday as we opened up with just the Blueprint and did our level best to keep our own personal commentary and opinions out. We believe that everyone thinks better after some self-reflection and after visiting Yahoo’s homepage articles we are so glad that we did.
There are some glaring inconsistencies in the language of the one page Republican Blueprint for Immigration Reform most of which need huge amounts of explanation so let us visit those now.
Wonderful start by expressing what should be obvious but is highly controversial among the globalists on the left and right:
The problem here is that the rest of the “standards” seem to tie the national interest primarily to what the Republican leaders’ corporate donors want rather than protecting the ability of unemployed Americans to gain jobs and of working Americans to obtain raises for their productivity.
BORDER SECURITY & INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT MUST COME FIRST
This section starts out right by not primarily focusing on the borders and in recognizing interior enforcement is the most important factor, given that close to half of illegal aliens first arrive legally. What is meant by “come first” is ambiguously addressed later.
And then this powerful idea:
I will believe it when I see it, but a bill reflecting this standard would basically pledge immediate and assured deportation for nearly every illegal alien who comes in contact with any of our governments in the future.
But why should we trust that could happen, since it has been the result of presidents of both parties refusing to enforce laws for 20 years that created the big illegal population that now demands amnesty? The authors anticipated the concern, noting all the bad president precedence and promised:
Eager to see the concrete ways they will guarantee it, or if they really try.
And notice that despite all the talk about “first,” the zero tolerance seems to be promised only AFTER “immigration reform is enacted.” Since the pro-amnesty folks all use “immigration reform” as the euphemism for when people are legalized and given work permits, it looks like this “standard” asks us to give the amnesty to all the illegal aliens before we ever see an example of what “zero tolerance” would look like in practice. This seems to set up a bigger bait and switch than the 1986 amnesty.
IMPLEMENT ENTRY-EXIST VISA TRACKING SYSTEM
Great to see them seeming aware of the fact that tens of millions foreigners legally enter the U.S. each year and we have no chance of getting ahead of illegal immigration if we do not keep track of when they fail to leave.
EMPLOYMENT VERIFICATION AND WORKPLACE ENFORCEMENT
Most corporations have given up on stopping mandatory verification for all employees. But what is the word “workable?”
