Case Closed

The Center for Immgration Studies has confirmed my earlier observation that the new Obama policy on illegal aliens will be the old Jorge Bush policy of catch and release. http://cis.org/Vaughan/CatchandRelease-287(g) My discovery of the new old policy is here. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/06/it-begins-or-more-accurately-it-begins.html

Basically, the policy of subverting 287(g) where local law enforcement arrest and process illegal aliens is ending based on an administrative decree, in violation of the law and an impeachable offense. Baraka Hussein Obama took an oath to see that the laws of the United States were faithfully executed, but violated that oath by refusing to arrest and detain illegal aliens caught in the U.S. The illegal aliens will add to the already unmanageble numbers of absconding illegal aliens who have refused to appear for the hearings before the Executive Office for Immigration Review. It also tells us that the upcoming amnesty will include illegal alien absconders, those already ordered deported and who refused to appear or leave as ordered.

Immigrants and Healthcare

The Canadians are up in arms that a criminal was denied entry to the United States. The Candadian are not up in arms that their healthcare system cannot provide for an infant's healthcare. The Candians are not up in arms that Americans are paying for their healthcare. Americans are not up in arms that the Obama healthcare plan would make Ava Stinson eligible for this expensive healthcare for free. Americans are not up in arms having to subsidize the out of wedlock healthcare of Ava Stinson. http://cp24.com/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20090626/090626_BABY_PASSPORTS/20090626/?hub=CP24Home (h/t Hot Air
http://hotair.com/archives/2009/06/28/canadacare-sends-baby-to-us-for-treatment/)

It appears that Canadians think that America is evil because we can provide healthcare to every Canadian, but don't have a nationalized healthcare system. Canadians, like Mexicans, think that America owes them free healthcare that their governments cannot provide in a nationalized system. As I said before, Obama's plan would make the expoitation of the American taxpayer completely legal and aboveboard, unlike now as it is hidden from the taxpayers by giving free care to illegal aliens at county hospitals. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/06/its-out-health-care-reform-to-cover.html Under Obama's plan, Stinson would qualify for free healthcare because she is a lawfully present alien. Of course, the absurd thing is that she is supposed to get free quality healthcare under Canada's nationalized free system, but obviously can't because it is a nationalized system.

But, as I learned recently, the Obama plan also includes money for illegal aliens. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124536864955329439.html (h/t National Review http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=ZGU3YTI0ODliNjlkYzJmOWE2ZWU1ZjJkOWE5MDNmYjA=)

"Page 118 [Actually page 120.] targets $33.95 billion to treat the 'special medically underserved population,' including the homeless, public-housing residents, and “migratory and seasonal agricultural workers.” How much of this money will wind up treating illegal aliens?"

So, besides providing free medical care to any alien lawfully admitted, it will also serve illegal aliens. Now, since this new national health insurance government option were just for legal residents, then there would be no need for special programs for groups like seasonal agricultural workers, as they could just walk into any doctor's office, hospital, or clinic to get their care, as they would now have insurance. This section of the act is obviously designed to apply to illegal aliens.

It Is Starting

In the early nineties, the Clinton war on gunowners and his political enemies started with the trumped up charges leveled against Randy Weaver and the attack on the Branch Dividians at Waco, resulting in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oaklahoma City. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby_Ridge The Obama Regime has started its own war on Americans today with the arrest of Hal Turner for suggesting that someone kill Federal appealate judges on the 7th Circuit of the U.S. Appeals Court. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-internet-radio-arrest-25-jun25,0,7879524.story Turner has been a thorn in the side of the federal courts and is a racist, just like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Obama's pastor Jerimiah Wright.

The case against Turner is obviously flawed, as he did not threaten to kill anyone, just suggested that someone else might want to do it. However, the method of the charging of Turner was the most sinister. It was by Criminal Complaint. http://207.41.16.133/rfcViewFile/09cr542.pdf This method is very strange, and is usually only used in cases where a quick, but not immediate arrest is wanted by the government. In cases where there is iminent danger cause by a potential crime, federal agents, specifically FBI special agents, are authorized to make probable cause arrests. Obviously, if the government thought that Turner had really made a threat, which includes an immediate ability to commit the crime and intent, an arrest could be made based on probable cause. Obviously though, the government did not think that Turner had either the means or intent to kill the three judges, as they took the time for the FBI special agent involved, John Marsh, write up a criminal complaint. This probably took at least one day, and did not include the time necessary for the assigned Assistant United States Attorney, who is interestingly not named in the Criminal Complaint, to review it for legal sufficiency.

But more importantly, a Criminal Complaint was used because the United States Attorneys Office did not want to go to a Grand Jury. In Chicago, Grand Juries sit almost every day of the week, and if the USAO had time to have Marsh write up a complaint and have it reviewed for legal sufficiency, it therefore had enough time to present the case to a Grand Jury. While I have heard an Assistant United States Attorney brag that Grand Jury could be let to indict a ham sandwich, which probably is true, I have also seen Grand Jurys No Bill an indictment. And, readers, that is not something that United States Attorneys like to see. AUSAs who get No Billed are told in no uncertian terms that they have to go to a new Grand Jury and get the indictment.

In Turner's case there is scant evidence of a threat, much less intent and means to carry it out. Any Grand Jury, despite the ham sandwich, would not have indicted. That is why a Criminal Complaint was necessary, and very clever, as the USAO went to one judge to get a Criminal Complaint in alleged threats to other judges. No Magistrate Judge would ever do anything to anger more senior judges. Remember Magistrate Judges are not appointed by the President, but appointed by a vote of District Judges for ten year terms. If a Magistrate Judge refused to sign a Criminal Complaint concerning threats to other federal judges in all work closely together and undoubtedly are close socially, that Magistrate Judge would have no chance of reappointment to a new term.

Instead of being laughed out of the Grand Jury Room, the USAO took the easy route of getting a Criminal Complaint, for articulable reason other than they could not get a Grand Jury to indict on a obviously bogus charge.

This is the opening shot by the Obama Regime against what liberals call hate talk, especially what they call hate talk radio. The governments refusal to support talk radio host Michael Savage after he was labeled a proponent of hate by the British Government was a first sign of the new Obama Regime campaign to criminalize opposition to the Obama Regime. But for the first actual arrest and prosecution for speech, they chose a less sympathetic and obviously less powerful victim, a racist, but one of the unapproved racist beliefs, as Jackson, Sharpton, and Wright are still free to peddle their version of hate speech.

While Turner may be unsympathetic to most people, this is just a start. Others will be immigration restrictionist groups, talk radio, gun owners, and other unapproved groups. Remember, the Clinton Regime tried to blame Oklahoma City on the eminently respectable Rush Limbaugh, who eschews the race and immigration issues, but he was blamed for OKC even though he did not ever address Ruby Ridge, Waco, or the gun issue.

Further evidence of the Obama Regime plan, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFE) has been harrassing and threatening lawful gunowners who live in Texas. http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id=4990 "One reportedly demanded that a gun owner return home early from a business trip, while another threatened to "report" an NRA member as 'refusing to cooperate.'" Interestingly enough, there is no federal crime of refusing to cooperate, it is actually called the right against self-incrimination. It is in the Constitution, like the right to own firearms. It is clear that the Obama Regime is intollerant of gun owners and free speech. They are no choosing their targets narrowly, but their targets will soon widen, entailing all who oppose them.

Turner verbally castigated the 7th Court of Appeals judges for denying Second Amendment rights to citizens in Chicago, but, as quoted on LewRockwell.com, http://www.lewrockwell.com/case/case36.1.html, 'Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th Circuit Court in 2003 wrote in part:

'The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.'"

This appears to be that once, again.

Obama's Objective Announced

The website for the treasonous cabal of immigration attorneys has published the ultimate plan of the Obama Regime. Literally opening up our borders. http://www.ilw.com/articles/2009,0625-akers.shtm Here the attorneys of treason argue that any border controls are unconstitutional. They make this bizarre arguement based on Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution that limited Congress' power to regulate the slave trade before 1808. According to the illiterate author, border control may only exist to control entry to those States in the Union at the time of the ratification of the Constitution. No border control may exist on the international border of other States. Everyone in the world then has a right to enter the U.S. without any control.

That is their agenda, which is amusing, as the article was written by a Becky Ackers, someon who is claiming to be a proponent of property rights. Just imagine the property rights once millions of greedy socialists have immigrated and voted for confiscatory taxes or siezure of private property to redistribute to poor immigrants. But this is the agenda of the Obama Regime. The bringing of hundreds of millions of aliens who will be living off your work and property.

Asylum Madness

The new trend in asylum is for criminals or victims of common crime to claim asylum in the United States. Obviously the asylum laws were never intended for either criminals or even victims of common crime. However, crazed liberal Asylum Officers in the Los Angeles District Asylum Office, legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service, gave asylum based on common criminal activity to Alex Sanchez, one of the Origional Gangsters from MS 13, a violent street gang with ties to the communist insurgency in El Salvador. He claimed to be reformed and started a career as a communnity organizer and an obviously fraudulent community service organization called Homies Unidos, supposedly founded to fight gangs, but served as a front for continued gang activity. Sanchez was just arrested by the FBI, again ICE was missing in action, for gang related activity, including several murders. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090624/ap_on_re_us/us_street_gang_arrest

This shows how our asylum laws have been abused by both aliens and the U.S. government. Of course Sanchez was a local darling of the radical left and benefited from close connections to leftists to obtain asylum. http://blogs.laweekly.com/ladaily/politics/villaraigosa-garcetti-backed-t/

Of course, Homies Unidos was a front from the begining and LAPD knew it, but ICE did not. The radical left were open supporters of Sanchez and his gangbangers, attaching the LAPD and its enforcement efforts against gangs. Salvadoran gangbangers were always an important issue for the left, as the gangsters were exclusively supporters of the communist Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN). http://www.streetgangs.com/people/asanchez.html

Of course, it was under Jorge Bush that Sanchez got amnesty from a hearing officer of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, but for some reason, the Bush Administration did not appeal the ruling to the Board of Immigration Appeals. http://i3.democracynow.org/2002/7/12/gang_member_turned_community_leader_is Which might appear strange as Sanchez was the darling of the radical left at the time. But it just shows you how our asylum system has been abused by liberals and fraud.

Of course the adulation for Sanchez and his phony community service was widespread and his arrest for continued criminal activity in 2000 caused panic in the left, as witness this ACLU attack on the LAPD for daring to arrest a gangbanger. http://www.aclu-sc.org/releases/view/100216 Of course, part of that was an attach on the LAPD CRASH units which were successfully breaking down gangbangers and their code of silence with relentless arrests of the gangsters for any offense they might commit, even minor offenses that the police would usually ignore. This was akin to the strategy to fight gangs in Chicago during Prohibition, with Al Capone going down for tax fraud, not bootlegging. http://www.aclu-sc.org/releases/view/100216 But the ACLU objected to that strategy, just as they object to arresting illegal aliens and terrorists.

Besides the horror of asylum for criminals, Sanchez is tied up with the failure of the legacy INS/ICE and the Bush Administration to enforce immigration laws. MS-13 and other gangs have terrorized Los Angeles and the rest of the country for years with no action by the legacy INS or ICE. What little enforcement that is done is by the police and occasionally by the FBI, but always ICE is missing in action. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=90995500 Whether it be MacArthur Park or Hawaiian Gardens, http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/05/ethnic-cleansing-american-style.html, what could easily be solved by agressive immigration enforcement methastitizes into serious crime problems with the non-enforcement strategy by ICE.

Even in June 2008, Sanchez, supposedly an anti-gang activist, just complains about any enforcement. Here is is from the NPR story:

"Sanchez says local and federal policing has just pushed gang violence to other parts of the city and outside the country to Central America. Sanchez points to the newly-converted lofts around the park area that are driving up rents. That's what's driving the new effort to clean up MacArthur Park, he says."

Sanchez is not anti-gang, as his only complaint seems to be that gangbangers are being deported. Reading between the lines you can see that he is still in the business. His anti-gang activities appear to be protecting gangbangers and other illegals from deportation. No one ever said liberals are bright, but they appeared eager to be fooled by Sanchez.

Cat Out Of Bag

More on the new policy of not enforcing immigration laws by the lawless Obama Regime. As I said before, http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/06/told-ya-so.html, the new Obama policy of not enforcing the law was designed to be a prelude to amnesty. An Obama Regime ally, amnesty advocate and opponent of immigration law enforcement has spilled the beans. http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2009/06/23/illegal-immigrants-netted-by-local-police-could-be-released/

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, obviously misnamed, has stopped accepting into custody illegal aliens detained by local law enforcement agencies. Instead of being held in custody, the aliens are given a release on recognizance order, what ever that is, as it does not exist in immigration enforcement. What it probably is depends on how and who arrested the illegal alien. If it was a 287(g) local agency trained and equipped to present illegal aliens to immigration court, it probably means that the aliens are just given an Order To Show Cause, basically an appointment for a hearing before a court of the Executive Office for Immigration Review. If the arresting agency just detained the alien for ICE and is not a 287(g) agency, the the alien gets off scott free. Now given that 85% of illegal aliens who are give Orders To Show Cause never show up for immigration court, the effect is the same, illegal aliens free to live in the U.S.

However, the important part is the statement by the Immigration Policy Center:

“There’s definitely a change in focus,” says Michelle Waslin, senior policy analyst at the Immigration Policy Center in Washington. “[The Obama administration] is reasserting federal control over immigration reform.”

Waslin lets the cat out of the bag and confirms that this policy is designed to support amnesty. Her statement is foolish but revealing, as immigration reform, or more accurately, legal authority over immigration has always been a federal responsibility. The 287(g) program and local enforcement of immigration laws is a separate issue from any changes in immigration law, but the radical left has always considered local enforcement as unacceptable, and fought it at every step. Nevermind that the Supreme Court has always said that State and local law enforcement have an inherent authority to make arrests for federal crimes. Also never mind that State and local agencies have enforced federal laws and regulations. Ever sit on a bus where a sign says "These seats reserved for elderly and handicapped under Federal law?" Enforcement of such requirements are common place. However it is one thing to arrest a non-handicapped person on a bus, but liberals draw the line at arresting illegal aliens. And that is because they want more illegals here.

The Quality Of Immigrants

The New York Times had an interesting article on what they called Americans recruited as Mexican drug cartel hitmen. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/23/us/23killers.html?pagewanted=1&hp However, there is not much American about them but their birth certificates. They are, of course, Hispanic, but, more importantly, culturally connected to Mexico and its violence than America.

The assasins for the cartels and their families are extraordinarily unappreciative of America and unwilling to be respectable residents or citizens. The money quote from a family member of one of the killers, Rosalio Reta: "On frequent trips to Mexico, he was also becoming involved with the Zetas, a family member said, speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals from drug dealers. On trips home, Mr. Reta described killings in Mexico that he had witnessed and, in some cases, participated in. 'He sounded so excited when he talked about all these things he was doing,' the family member said." Obviously the family did not care that a member of their family was killing people on both sides of the border. They did not report that to the police. What sort of citizen or resident cares so little for his country that he will allow a family member to murder indiscriminately. Hugh Hewitt says Hispanics are natural Republicans and conservatives, but I say that murders and their family members who support their career as an assasin are not natural Republicans or conservatives, but natural Democrats and liberals. It is liberals who revel in or appologize for criminal behavior, not conservatives.

Your Tax Dollars At Work

Funemployment? Have you heard how your tax dollars are being spent under Obama? I thought stuff like this was only experienced in Euope. In the summer of 1986 I did the Eurail tour of Europe, staying in hostels and campgrounds. What I saw and experienced were not fellow students on summer vacation, but the lazy unemployed and unemployable of England riding the rails and partying it up, all at government expense. They used their not only unemployment payments, but payments for those never employed to enjoy life. Well, now you are paying for the Obama version, funemployment. http://www.sfweekly.com/2009-06-03/news/funemployment/1 $1,900 a month for 19 months. That is what you are paying for someone else to enjoy unemployment. That is a year and a half of not having to work. While others slave away for your enjoyment. Ski vacations, hiking, touring Turkey and Isreal, afternoon drinking, and "volunteering." Great work if you can't get it. Here is a money quote of some lazy welfare recipient: "'I don't really define myself by work,'" he said. "'I work to support a lifestyle that's very full and rich and fulfilling.'" Rich and fulfilling at my expense.

Thanks 'Bama.

It Begins, Or, More Accurately, It Begins To End

Immigration enforcement I mean. http://www.tennessean.com/article/20090622/NEWS03/906220342/1001/NEWS (h/t American Patrol http://www.americanpatrol.com/) Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, has immiediately put into effect the new DHS policy of not arresting illegal aliens unless they have committed other serious felonies in the United States. ICE will no longer arrest illegal aliens before they commit other crimes, but only after. Only after an American citizen is dead, or injured, or a victim of another crime. Instead of solving the problem of crime before it gets out of hand, ICE will let crime continue until the criminal commits several serious crimes. ICE doesn't want to participate in the Broken Windows method of solving the crime problem that Rudy Guiliani implemented in New York and saved the city. ICE wants an America like New York 20 years ago, one of abandoned buildings, rampant crime and a declining city. That certainly is the Obama Regime goal. Janet Reno Napalitano is ideologically obsessed with destroying America by importing a crime problem and preping the U.S. for amnesty by making sure no illegal alien is deported before amnesty is imposed. Lets hope that you are not the next victim of illegal alien crime. With all her Secret Service bodyguards, you know that Janet Reno Napalitano will not be one.

Liberals Must Lie About Immigration

Liberals have an agenda, and, like the Communists they emulate, they lie to achieve that agenda. Liberals have to lie about their immigration agenda, as that is the only method by which they can bring that agenda to fruition. Case in point: The State of Pennsylvania is cleaning up its driver's license system and removing those who are illegal aliens. http://www.philly.com/philly/wires/ap/news/state/pennsylvania/20090619_ap_penndotdriverfraudcrackdownworriesimmigrants.html (h/t American Patrol http://www.americanpatrol.com/)

The ACLU and the immigration lawyers lobby, AILA, are actively fighting the revocation of the driver's licenses of over 9,000 illegal aliens. In typical fashion, the ACLU and AILA claimed that Pennsylvania was over reaching. And, of course, they chose a seemingly sympathetic class of aliens and lied about the impact of this program directed against illegal aliens, political asylum applicants. Mendatiously, the ACLU attorney, Vic Walczak, claimed that aliens admitted for political asylum don't qualify for Social Security numbers and have no immigration documents. He also claimed that they don't have passports, which in some rare cases is true, but irrelevant.

Here is the money quote: '"Not everybody has to have a valid Social Security card or passport in order to get a driver's license in Pennsylvania, nor in some cases are people eligible to have those documents," such as those granted political asylum, Walczak said. '

Now, that ACLU attorney is just plain lying. First, aliens applying for political asylum qualify for both Social Security numbers, which are valid for employment, and an employment authorization document, Form I-766 Employment Authorization Document, as well as Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Records as an asylee. In any event, most aslyees also have a passport. So Walczak was lying in an attempt to assist illegal aliens in maintaining their Pennsylvania driver's license. And that is what liberals do. They don't have facts on their side, so they have to lie to obtain their goal. And their goal is to flood the U.S. with illegal aliens.

Now without employment authorization, there is no need for any alien to have a U.S. driver's license. Tourists and business visitors do not need a domestic license. If they are really hear temporarily, they can use their license from their home country and an international license. Only a person living here needs a domestic license. What Walczak is doing is trying to assist illegal aliens who arrived here on tourist visas and immediately violated their terms and conditions of admission by living and working in the U.S. Ostensibly legally admitted aliens on tourist and other visas are one of the primary sources of illegal immigration in the U.S. and the ACLU is assisting in their efforts to remain here. That is what this driver's license issue is all about.

Its Official, Back To The Future

Even after 9/11 Jorge Bush was obssessed with illegal aliens and amnesty. It was not until 2006 that any serious immigration enforcement began, but as soon as it began, it is ending, or, more accurately, going back to the future. http://www.fairus.org/site/PageNavigator/issues/new_dhs_guidelines The non-enforcement by the late Immigration and Naturalization Service is now the new and official policy of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. There will be no immigration raids on employers for the foreseable future. Any raid will first have to have the written assurance of a United States Attorney's Office that they will prosecute employers of illegal aliens before any raid on employers of illegal aliens will be allowed by ICE and Janet Reno Napalitano. This is a defacto amnesty in place, for as a first principle, US Attorney's Offices NEVER give written assurances of prosecution before the evidence is presented to them. No US Attorney's Office could agree to prosecute before receiving the evidence. US Attorney's Offices in any event are filled with the laziest collection of attorneys ever seen. Most Assistant United States Attorneys are usually looking for a reason not to prosecute a case and none agree to prosecute before seeing evidence, much less after receiving the evidence. You must understand that Assistant U.S. Attorney's control their workload and never seek more work than they want. They are free to decline a case presented to them with no knowledge of their superiors. They have the best job in the federal government, as they control the amount of work they do and have little supervision. The only rule is to never loose a case, as that makes their United States Attorney look bad.

This policy by DHS is obviously the precursor to amensty. Many immigration reformers had said that Obama has too much on his plate to go for amnesty, but Obama is going full tilt on every other issue, so why not amnesty, which will ensure Demoncrat majorities for the future? Amnesty is the best thing for the Demoncrat Party, so it will happen. And this defacto amnesty is the first step in having as many illegals here to get amnesty as possible. Just as Jorge Bush wanted amnesty and refused to enforce the law, so Obama is following in his footsteps.

More Religion Of Peace, With A Bloody Knife

Another black American Muslim has killed, or in this case been captured for a previous killing. http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/ss/local/115381.php So, why are Muslims, especially black Muslims so violent? Any suggestions? Why are they intolerant of heresy? http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/211083,indonesia-calls-a-deviant-muslim-sect-to-halt-activity--summary.html Why are Muslims intolerant of democracy? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31422044/ns/world_news-mideastn_africa Why are we tolertaing this fifth column in our society?

Told Ya So

I had warned that the new Department of Homeland Security campaign, Secure Communities, was deceitful, as it was just a rebranding of the current DHS policy of concentrating on criminal illegal aliens, and letting the rest of them go. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/05/real-meaning-behind-new-immigration.html

I have again been confirmed in my review. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/local/Expansion-of-immigration-enforcement-could-affect-Prince-William-crackdown-48200917.html

(h/t American Patrol http://www.americanpatrol.com/)

Here are the money quotes: '"The two programs complement each other and … have different implementations,” said ICE spokesman Richard Rocha.Prince William Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart, R-at Large, said he did not believe the two were redundant, arguing that the 287(g) program allowed county police officers to participate in the deportation process.
“Just because a community identifies an illegal immigrant” doesn’t mean the person will get deported, he said.'

and

"ICE focuses on the most dangerous criminal aliens, those who have been convicted or are charged with an offense including national security, homicide, kidnapping, assault, robbery, sex and narcotics crimes that carry a sentence of greater than one year."

Here we have, in a nutshell, the Bush policy of ignoring most illegal aliens and concentrating on criminal illegal aliens confirmed.

Welfare, Work, And Illegal Aliens

The San Francisco Chronicle is down on lazy Americans. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/06/18/BAC01890SD.DTL Curiously it is up on free healthcare for those earning upwards of $1oo,000 a year. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/06/03/BAC717VNIE.DTL In the first Chron story they tout the $25-30K a year salary and an employer subsidized health plan, but they seem not to realize that that is not much of a draw if the City of San Francisco provides it free. And illegal aliens qualify for the free care as well. There is no incentive to work at all if you provide generous welfare to residents. And, of course, in expensive San Francisco, $30K is not much, basically illegal alien wages anyway. Of course, the issue of raising wages to attract better workers is not broached by the author, C. W. Nevius. So we have here the perfect storm, huge welfare subsidies to those who chose not to work, low wages that attract illegal alien labor and a city that supports illegal immigration. Then they tell us that we have to accept illegal immigration because Americans won't work. Well, in San Francisco that is true, no one wants to work. Everyone wants that fat welfare check. Another thing not mentioned is the employers refusal to hire local blacks who have a dismally high unemployment rate, but they aren't looking for jobs, execpt getting on the city payroll where they can retire at a higher pay level than that which there were paid while working.

Of course, Obama's plan is to replicate this at the federal level. Put everyone on welfare and let all the illegal aliens work. But when they get here, they will have no incentive to work if they are on the dole as well. But that was always the plan of the American welfare socialists. At least the Russians made their citizens at least appear to work.

Wall Street Journal Gets It Half Right

A good description of a immigration fraud ring involving slavery and non-immigrant working visas appeared today in the WSJ. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124520412113421827.html Something I have brought to the attention of the public earlier. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/05/eight-year-investigation.html However, I had a different tack on the issue. However the WSJ, or perhaps, just this particular writer, got it at least half right. The H-2B non-immigrant employment visa is an invitation to abuse, like this modern day indentured servant, or slavery as the WSJ described it. I might quibble over using slavery to describe it rather than the more accurate indentured servitude, as I am certain, from personal experience, that the aliens in this mess were quite happy to come to the U.S. For they are here and when their visa expires, they were not intending to leave. Like most H-2B non-immigrants, it is just a means to enter the U.S. Eventually, not always right away, they intended to leave their employer and strike out on their own in the U.S. Perhaps an honest H-2B sponsor treats them OK. But then they will just be using it to establish presence in the U.S, bring in the extended family, create a nest egg from meager but reliable wages. That is how it is done.

However, as usual, the WSJ gets it only half right at best. They failed to realize that the H-1B is the same program, only it pays a little high wages, but displaces an American worker. Just as there are plenty of low IQ Americans out there for whom a job cleaning hotel rooms is a good match, there are plenty of highly educated tech workers unemployed now but big businesses, like the hotel chains in the H-2B story, also employ the indentured servants as H-1Bs. While obviously an H-1B tech worker has a higher IQ and consequently the smarts to game the system, like getting recruited by a competitor as the visa is transferable, for the most part the H-1B is stuck. Like the H-2A however, he is in on the deal. He is looking for the brass ring, a green card, or just entry to the U.S. where since Obama is refusing to implement E-Verify, he can burrow into the system and live quite well, if not well, than better than where he came from.

However, the WSJ is a huge booster of H-1B indentured servituted and its stand on the H-2A only exposes it hypocracy. Indentured servitude is the same no matter what the paycheck.

A real solution to the H-2A and H-1B problem is reform of welfare that returns sub-100 IQ Americans to the work place and from the welfare rolls. And an immigration policy that ends family chain migration and replaces it with a system that is based on youth, education, English language skills, and a pro-American attitude. However, don't expect that from the Journal. They are attached to the old system of welfare for their hated American worker, and a pliant foreign workforce that by its current incarnation includes gangbangers, Islamists, and those with ethnic grievances against America.

Well, maybe they only got it a quarter right. But every little bit helps, one hopes.

Just How Easy Immigration Enforcement Is

You don't need thousands of agents, you don't need alot of high tech equipment, you don't need new laws, you don't need 2,000 mile fences, you don't need anything more than you already have. Just how easy is it to enforce immigration laws. You need a printer, a computer, access to the already established databases of Social Security Numbers and access to the IRS data base. That is how easy immigration law enforcement is. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2009/06/desktop-immigration-raid-shakes-vernon-factory.html (h/t American Patrol http://www.americanpatrol.com/ and Vdare http://blog.vdare.com/archives/2009/06/12/a-desktop-raid-irs-cracks-down-on-immigrant-fraudsters-la-times-not-happy/)

This is just how easy it is. You just send a letter to the companies that employ illegal aliens. Very few employers, aside from your local gardening contractor, pay their employers in cash. Almost every employer pays by a payroll system based on Social Security Numbers and they report all their payroll, including those ever important payroll taxes demanded by the IRS, to the State and Federal governments in one way or another. The penalties for not reporting income taxes and Social Security taxes are just too high; the penalties too great, the consequences too frightening to contemplate for most companies. They are so important that many companies pay their illegal alien employees using a default Social Security number, 000-00-0000. This is how blatant that illegal alien employment is and how little companies fear the government, unless the IRS turns its hungry eye on it.

The above raid, conducted from a desk of an IRS employee, with no attendant photos of ICE agents, no fleeing illegal aliens, no arrests, no meals to be served by the arrestees, no burdening of the immigration courts, just the expense of a single letter to the company, Overhill Farms, that said 200 of their Social Security numbers and their associated payroll deductions were falsified. Overhill Farms quickly caved, gave the illegal alien employees 30 days to straighten out their problem with the Social Security numbers and presto, chango, 200 jobs opened up for Americans. No fuss, no muss, no expense more than a few hours correlating data, postage, an envelope, a sheet or two of paper and the salary of an IRS auditor, cheaper by the way than the daily salary of an ICE Special Agent in the Los Angeles area ($130,000.00 a year by the way with the Los Angeles area locality pay and Law Enforcement Availability Pay of 25% of base salary at a GS-1811-13 step 5 or so). While the 200 illegals remain, they are in a lot of pain. They can't feed their children, they cannot send money home to Mexico, they cannot go to the local mercado, they can't make house payments, they cannot make rent payments, they can't do much. They won't get any accomodation from their banks or landlords, they will likely go home.

However, this will only work if this desktop raid is not the last. This shows us the benefits of E-Verify and Social Security no-match letters. This shows us that immigration enforcement by proxy can work and will work. There is no going back to cash payrolls. That is too obvious and has too much legal exposure, especially for the Wal-marts, Marriotts, Holiday Inns, etc. They can't have one payroll system for their legal workers and one for the illegals. They will be forced to obey the law. We can then focus ICE on the few employers, like the local landscaper, that pay in cash. That would put ICE out of the news.

But Baraka Hussein Obama will not tolerate this IRS desktop raid. It will be the last. Mark my words. Just as the raids in the early Bush Administration by the U.S. Border Patrol on illegal workers going too and from work were quashed. Success by government employees in the performance of their jobs will not be tolerated.

Uighurs In Paradise

No, not Cheeseburgers in Paradise, but Muslim terrorists in paradise. Fox News is reporting that the Uighurs rendered to Bermuda will bet getting Bermudan passports in as little as a year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkcBZBZTI-c&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fgatewaypundit%2Eblogspot%2Ecom%2F&feature=player_embedded (h/t Gateway Pundit http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2009/06/uighurs-on-fantasy-island-video.html)

While Eric Holder and the Obama Regime have plans to release the other terrorists held in Gitmo and a indirect strategy to implement their goal. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/06/how-they-plan-to-do-it.html The Uighurs in Paradise present an interesting admission by the Obama Regime that their original plan to bring the Uighurs to the U.S. was illegal. Holder is now claiming that the Uighurs will not be able to enter the U.S. from Bermuda. He says that the no-fly list and the fingerprints will keep the Uighurs out. Presumably since they are terrorists they are not allowed to enter the U.S. By saying that, Holder admitted that the original plan to settle the Uighurs in the U.S. was in violation of the law.

However, there are ways the Uighurs can legally enter the U.S. The U.S. has pre-inspection of arriving flights in Bermuda. http://www.usdoj.gov/olc/ina235Anew.htm. And we have the USVisit program. That is a computer system that stores identifiers for aliens collected of visa applicants, aliens who enter the U.S. at sea and airports, aliens arrested and aliens deported.

If the Uighurs obtain their Bermudan passports with their original names, then they can be stopped if they attempt to enter by air. However, a Bermudan passport holder has the right to enter the U.S. without a visa. If they do not fly to the U.S. from Bermuda,they could enter by in another manner. They could make an entry at a land or sea port of entry, they could enter the U.S. legally and undetected. First example. One or more of of the Uighurs flys to Mexico, then enters the U.S. by car. Only the license plate of the car is run in the computer and no fingerprints of occupants of the car are run in the USVisit system that has fingerprints of ineligible aliens in it. Another manner of entry is by car over the Canadian border. Same situation. They enter freely without a visa. Especially if they get their Bermudan passports in a variation of their names which is quite common.

Additionally, they can enter as pedestrians over the Canadian border and Mexico again without having their names or fingerprints entered into the system, USVisit.

So, while Holder now recognizes that the Uighurs cannot enter the U.S. legally, he is doing all he can for them to do so by obtaining for them visaless entry with Bermudan passports. And though they may be on the lookout list and the no-fly list, and we don't know that for certain, they can enter the U.S. legally throught the holes we have in USVisit.

You might ask why aren't those who enter the U.S. by car or on foot treated the same. First, the system will catch too many illegals. The politicians from Jorge Bush and Baraka Hussein Obama don't want Customs and Border Protection to catch too many illegals at the border. It is common for Mexican citizens with border crossing cards to rent out or sell their cards. This is possible because CBP does not check pedetrians and drivers/passengers in cars at the land border with USVisit. The merchants and politicians of south Texas are also lobbyists to not use USVisit at the border. They don't want their workforce and customer base which live in Mexico to be distrupted.

Now, once the Uighurs enter the U.S. they will be free to travel around and assist or commit in terrorist acts. They will also be free to sue the U.S. government for their detention, will qualify for the new healthcare single payer system, and can apply for political asylum. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/06/its-out-health-care-reform-to-cover.html

How They Plan To Do It

The Obama Regime has ostensibly thrown in the towel on brining their fellow Muslim terrorists to the U.S. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/11/AR2009061101210.html?hpid=topnews However, in the same article that claimed that claimed an Obama retreat, the reality came through.

First the money quote: "Attempting to settle non-Uighur detainees in the United States would generate even greater congressional opposition, and the administration has decided not to pursue it broadly, an administration official said yesterday, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. But he said there may yet be "a few" candidates for settlement in the United States among the dozens of Guantanamo detainees who have been cleared for release."

It appears that the Obama Regime is still seeking to bring Muslim terrorists to the U.S. Besides the typical pandering and covering from the Democrat controlled media, you can also see the legal agenda on the move. More on that later.

Secondly though we are also told that the plan to remove the rest of the Uighurs not rendered to Bermuda to the Pacific Island paradise of Palau is not apparently going through. "State Department special envoy Daniel Fried visited Palau last week, and a delegation from the country is on its way to Guantanamo to interview other Uighur detainees this weekend. But military and administration officials said Palau would not be taking all of the remaining Uighurs at Guantanamo." Perhaps one or two.

And maybe a few more to Australia. " Fried also visited Australia last week, but officials declined to say if the United States is close to a deal with its Pacific ally to accept detainees."

Back to the strategy to bring the rest of the Uighurs and the mysterious "a few."

The strategy is related to the indictment of another Gitmo detainee in New York, Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani. The scenerio will probably play out like this. A number of detainees will be indicted, but the goal will not to gain a conviction or perhaps to just gain a minor conviction. A reliable judge will then determine, as in the the case of the Kangaroo Taliban, David Hicks. In Hicks' case he was released immediately after sentencing because he was given credit for the time he was detained as a prisoner of war, albiet an unlawful combatant.

It appears the Hicks pattern will be the master plan for Obama. Bring several detainees to the U.S., indict numerous detainees on either major charges and offer only a half-hearted prosecution hoping for dismissal by a reliably liberal judge and then not appeal that action. Or, indict on minor charges, hoping for a conviction, then allow the court to use time served at Gitmo as a part of any sentence.

Then, with the detainees in the U.S. with either dismissed charges or minor convictions, and no way of deporting them to their home countries, then, after six months of detention in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security, they must be released under precedent Supreme Court decision, the horrible St. Cyr decision. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_and_Naturalization_Service_v._St._Cyr

Obama can then claim that his hands were tied and the Muslim terrorists will be released into the U.S. with work permits and all the freedoms they need to recruit other terrorists, and they will be doing that from MSNBC and CNN, or provide the trained cadre in the U.S. necessary to support further terrorism.

And after the first few terrorists are released in that manner, it would provide the prescendent for the courts to order the transfer of other terrorists to the U.S. or for the Obama Regime to release the rest of the terrorists here. Once the prescendent is set for releasing one terrorist, then the release of the other terrorists will cause less furor.

And perhaps it is Ghailani that will be the test case for this strategy. For some reason he was charged in the Southern District of New York, the most difficult district to get terrorism convictions. And notorious for not imposing the death penalty. Why not the Eastern District of Virginia, whose juror pool are much more open to the death penalty?

In any event, terrorists are coming to America, by hook or by crook.

Lies, Damn Lies, Healthcare Reform, Immigration And Hugh Hewitt

Recently Hugh Hewitt had an immigration attorney on again, Angelo Paparelli, a propogandist of the highest order for illegal aliens and jihadists. http://townhall.com/Talkradio/Show.aspx?RadioShowID=5&page=2 As usual with Hugh, the lies of an attorney are accepted at face value, event those lies promoting Al Queda jihadis, because Paparelli is one of Hugh's gang, Attorneys-at-Law. You can hear the difference in treatment when you compare the Paparelli interview with that of Lawence O'Donnell, who only plays an attorney. O'Donnell got a grilling, polite, but a grilling all the same. And before Hewitt begins the grilling, he asks O'Donnell if he was an attorney and when O'Donnell said no, the long knives came out. There was no mercy and O'Donnell was exposed as the dishonest fool he is.

However, that was not to be for Paparelli. With softballs flying, Paparelli lied like the lawyer he is. The first lie was about healthcare for illegal aliens. Paparelli said that illegal aliens only get emergency care at county hospitals. That, of course, is a lie. Illegal aliens get free healthcare at any emergency room, county, private, city, state, it does not matter which. And, of course, it is not just emerency care, as any medical condition is treated in the U.S. As a matter of fact illegal aliens get free ongoing care at hospitals including long-term care equivalent to highly skilled nursing homes. Attorneys like Paparelli actually are sueing hospitals that remove their illegal alien patients in long-term care situations to their home countries. They claim that hospitals have a legal obligation to provide that care to all illegal aliens.

The next part of Paparelli's lie is that the State of California and many other states, as well as many cities like New York City and San Francisco provide medical care to all illegal aliens. The City of San Francisco has a program specifically designed to provide health care to illegals, as all legal residents of California and the United States have access to Medicare and Medicaid. http://www.healthysanfrancisco.org/ Sacramento County recently ended open healthcare assistance to illegal aliens. http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2009/feb/county-cuts-free-illegal-alien-health-care The State of California gives billions to private healthcare clinics that provide healthcare services to illegal aliens and the Medi-Cal program provides access to free healthcare services for mostly female illegal aliens if they are pregnant or have U.S. citizen or legally admitted alien children.

Additionally, Medi-Cal has been cited by the federal government for providing healthcare and welfare to illegal aliens illegally. Of course, other states, follow the same policy of providing healthcare and welfare to illegal aliens, as does the federal government under WIC, food stamps, and other programs, directly or indirectly.

Paparelli further claimed that even if illegal aliens were legalized, they would not get healthcare services, as legal permanent residents (LPR) do not qualify for State or Federal healthcare programs. That, again, is a lie. In most states, including California, LPRs qualify for the state administered Medicare and Medicaid. Other classes of aliens also qualify, those paroled, those on student and working visas, and those who are illegal but have applied for legal permanent residence (e.g. those with contructed legal presence).

Pararelli also falsely claimed that illegal aliens were not covered by SCHIP, State Childrens Health Insurance Program. That is not true, as attorney's like Paparelli are fighting to allow illegal aliens to claim, but not have the claim verified, legal status to qualify.

Again, whe have the program of the left. Lie until you get what we want. Here they are using the lie that legal and illegal aliens don't get healthcare at your expense as part of their justification for the upcoming healthcare reform to ease its passage. As I pointed out previously, the healthcare reform bill will cover most illegal aliens. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/06/its-out-health-care-reform-to-cover.html

And that is the plan, lie and lie until you get what you want.

Less Than A Ringing Endorsement

The Obama Regime plan to end immigration enforcement continues apace. John Morton, the new head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who, by the way, has never made an arrest or received any law enforcement training, stated that the new ICE enforcement strategy of concentrating on employers rather than illegal aliens is developing. http://www.azstarnet.com/metro/296052 (h/t American Patrol http://www.americanpatrol.com/)

However, he gave a less than ringing endorsement of E-Verify, the program in place that can provide the only evidence that an employer is following the rules:

"Would you like to see E-Verify, the employer verification system, become mandatory nationwide as it is in Arizona?
A: Some form of employment verification is a good thing and ought to be part of the government's overall work-site enforcement strategy. I want to see how E-Verify, in particular, plays out over the next year and how some of the changes and improvements being made to the program play out before settling on whether E-Verify itself in its present form is the vehicle for the future."

Apparently during his two weeks on the job, or in any of the time since he was nominated, he has not contacted any of the employees for the Department of Homeland Security who manage E-Verify to hear from them that E-Verify is fast, effective, accurate, and dependable. One would think that the head of ICE would have access to that information about a program run by ICE, but I am thinking that since he is a lawyer, he does not know his head from his ass.

He further states that he did not know if ICE is understaffed. ICE has only approximately 4,000 law enforcement officers of various ranks for approximatley 12-20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. Add to that the fact that ICE investigates violation of customs laws, internet child pornography, and responds to terrorist and natural disasters, it is readily apparent that ICE is severely understaffed. You would think someone with his experience in law enforcement...........Opps, Morton has none. He has prosecuted alot of crimes as an Assistant United States Attorney and been a Department of inJustice manager, but then he has never managed a law enforcement agency either.

So here we have it, a top DHS official doesn't know anything about the most effective weapon against illegal employment of aliens that DHS has and doesn't know that his agency is severely understaffed. That, however, is the Obama Regime plan to not enforce the immigration laws of the U.S. The Obama Regime has apparently adopted the immigration attorney lobby's plan to abolish E-Verify and replace it with an unyet designed, much less implemented system, that will duplicate what E-Verify is doing now.

The second part of the plan is to bog down ICE with long fruitless investigations into employers, while the illegal aliens remain in the U.S., either still working illegally or given work permits as part of the investigation:

" 'We are going to focus more attention on investigating and prosecuting employers, rather than starting out with simply focusing on the workers themselves," Morton said. "We have too many people knowingly hiring individuals who are not in this country lawfully.' "

However, as an attorney, not a law enforcement professional, he should know the importance of that single word, "knowingly." There, my friends, is, as the Bard said, the rub. Assistant United States Attorney's will have to prove that the employers knowingly hired illegal aliens. With the wide availability of counterfeit documents and Morton's hostility to E-Verify, then no case can be made to show that any hiring of illegals was done "knowingly."

Fruitless investigations such as the Wal-mart investigation that ended in only a fine and no criminal convictions, http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000103&sid=apCyBG8gQ_iA&refer=news_index, or the Yamato Engines investigation that ended with no arrests or convictions for employers and the illegal aliens released with work permits. http://www.bellinghamherald.com/102/story/851694.html (Actually the Wal-mart fines show that the old strategy of fining of employers was the best policy, if it was done agressively and frequently. However, the old INS fell down on the job and constantly reduced fines on appeal, undermining their effectiveness.)

Add to this the failure of the Obama Regime to assist on the issue of extension of authorization of E-Verify and the funding of E-Verify now before Congress and what you have is an attempt to kill E-Verify without getting the blame. http://www.numbersusa.com/content/news/june-9-2009/house-appropriations-subcommittee-offers-2-year-e-verify-extension.html

All this sound and fury is simply designed to allow aliens to remain here until the next amnesty.

Translation

The Obama Regime, after claiming their immigration enforcement strategy will concentrate on the employers of illegals, is, again, backtracking. http://www.law.com/jsp/ihc/PubArticleIHC.jsp?id=1202431248337&EVerify_Program_for_Federal_Contractors_Delayed_Again=&src=EMC-Email&et=editorial&bu=Corporate%20Counsel&pt=Corporate%20Counsel%20Daily%20Alerts&cn=CC20090608&kw=E-Verify%20Program%20for%20Federal%20Contractors%20Delayed%20Again They have again delayed implementing Everify for all federal contractors. Not a good sign for enforcement and symptomatic of Obama's and Janet Reno Napalitano's flagrant dishonesty.

However, the only people more dishonest than those two crooks is the attorney for the Chamber of Commerce. "Lawrence Lorber of the Washington office of New York's Proskauer Rose, who represents the Chamber of Commerce in its lawsuit, is also pleased with the delay. He has a laundry list of concerns with the rule: It's illegal, ineffective, costly and overly-burdensome, he claims." Translation: "Everify is effective and a threat to the business plan that uses illegal alien labor."

Another attorney one needs to translate: " ' I think we all have a sense that what ever emerges from this -- it's going to be different from what was in the original regulation," said Eric S. Bord, a partner in the Washington office of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. "The rule itself -- I think that it's burdensome ... While it's nominally free, the reality is that it imposes tremendous costs on employers in terms of administrative time and changing procedures in overhead.' "

"Bord also sees some liability issues tied to E-Verify."

Translation: We are afraid that Everify will reveal our dependancy on illegal alien labor and expose us to action by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

All of this brought to you by Babelfish, the handy internet translation service, legaleze to English in seconds.

Lies, Damn Lies, and Immigration

The Wall Street Journal and Edward Alden are at it again. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124442941032893169.html Apparently there is some huge backlog of immigrant visas or non-immigrant visas, or thousands of Indians and Chinese stranded, respectively, in India and China. Fancy that, Indians in India and Chinese in China. Like Baraka Hussein Obama and his hate America Apology Tour, Edward Alden took a hate America Immigration Tour.

Alden alleges that there are thousands stranded in their home countries because of a policy of delaying the entry of aliens into the U.S. He states: "In recent months I have been in contact with many individuals caught in this Kafkaesque bureaucracy. Most are scientists and engineers who have earned advanced degrees from U.S. universities and are (or were) working for American companies in Silicon Valley, Wall Street and other centers of the U.S. economy".

But then goes on to claim: "One had been a researcher at Intel on the latest generation of chip designs; he'd won a national prize for his Ph.D. dissertation for outstanding research in electronic and photonic materials. Another had lived in the U.S. for more than a decade and was doing post-doctoral research at Emory University on vaccine immunology. Still another was a quantitative analyst for a U.S. hedge fund".

And then: "The U.S. scientific enterprise depends enormously on talented foreigners. Foreign students and researchers, especially from India and China, comprise more than half of the scientific researchers in the U.S. They earn 40% of the Ph.D.s in science and engineering, and 65% of the computer science doctorates. If we drive them away, the companies that depend on such expertise will leave with them, taking thousands of other jobs that would have been filled by Americans."

As a clever America hater, he first deliberately diverts the reader by confusing non-immigrant workers, or is it immigrant workers, he does not say which, and they are two very different things, with students.

Then he claims that: "Last week, in an encouraging sign that Washington has started to recognize the damage, the Obama administration pledged to throw enough resources at the problem to reduce the months-long screening to no more than two weeks in most cases. With the improvements that have been made in terrorist watch lists and other security screening tools, a decision on whether a visa applicant -- especially one already living and working here -- poses a threat should not take months."

Apparently Alden doesn't seem to care that the 9/11 terrorists entered the U.S. mostly on student visas.

But, back to the lies. According to Alden there is a shortage of foreign students. While the number of students went down for a few years, there is no evidence that any of that decline was related to security checks based on a visa applicants name and date of birth. In fact, there is no evidence that the security check process had any impact on the visa process. In the area of student visas, student fraud is the major factor in visa application adjudication. Before 9/11, there were thousands of "schools" that processed applications for Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status - for Academic and Language Students, a Department of Homeland Security, then Immigration and Naturalization Service, form completed by educational institutions for students to present to either the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services or the Department of State as part of a visa application. However, most of the institutions issuing I-20s were fraudulent or of no real educational purpose. The USCIS has slowly weeded those out, but the major limiting factor for students is the expense of school, with most applicants for student visas unable to afford their education. Their real plan is to come to the U.S. to work and, perhaps, study on the side. The second problem was derivative, students who wanted to use the student visa to come to the U.S. to live.

And now we have the problem with terrorists. Alden, like Obama and Clinton, don't really care about terrorism, just remember 9/11 was planned and practices by terrorists on student visas who entered under the lax Clinton Regime rules.

The worst part of Alden's piece though was the sheer audacity of his lies and misdirection.

He claimed that: "Log onto the Web site of the U.S. Consulate in Chennai and you will see a snapshot of what visa processing is doing to the competitiveness of American companies and research institutions. Click on the link to "Case Status Report," and there is a list of hundreds of visa applications from Indians who await processing. The oldest dates back to 2005, and dozens of others have been pending for a year or more while Washington plods through security background checks."

That, for the most part, is both confusing and a lie. There are background checks, but only those who have a hit of some sort are delayed by this part. However, a security check is not the only reason for a delay and student are not the only applicants for visas. Most of those waiting are not responding to follow up questionaires or abandoned their applications, and because they did not qualify for the visa. http://chennai.usconsulate.gov/pdfs/adprocases090601.pdf Many are listed as pending, but that tells one nothing. Perhaps Alden thinks that the cost of economic growth is another airliner flown into a building. Now given that south Asia is the source of most of the violent Islamic terrorists, just remember Balochis planned 9/11, the first WTC attack, and other Pakistanis planned and carried out the attacks on London and Bombay, you would think that a security check might be a good idea.

However, there is no evidence that any of those pending applications are for student visas, much less that the security check is the issue. India is a source of hundres of thousands of illegal aliens and consequently their visa applications cause more scutiny. There is also no evidence that those pending applications are for students or non-immigrant workers. Most of the pending are undoubtedly for visitor visas, the most common visa used by the alien intending to remain unlawfully in the U.S. Here Alden takes a page from the Democrat handbook, attack without basis of fact.

Next Alden deliberately distorts the truth by claiming that aliens are "trapped" in their home countries by the bureaucracy, claiming they took a trip home and got trapped. Well, not true. Both students and non-immigrant workers can and do renew their status in the U.S. If they leave with an expired visa, they know that they will be delayed overseas. They make a choice to risk a visa issuance delay. They usually do this to get married. And, of course, this complicates things, as their new spouse needs to get a dependant visa as well. That is particularly hard on students, as then they need to show they can provide for their new spouse, which is more difficult for the usually non-working student. However, non-immigrant work visas, such as H-1B and L-1 can be renewed with the State Department in a special process in DC.

Of course, none of Alden's anysist of the impact of foreign scientists and researchers takes into account that these aliens drive down wages of American scientists and researchers, further driving Americans out of technology and science fields of study. He claims replacing Amercans with aliens creates more employment for Americans. However, what really happens is when aliens are hired, they tend to drive out Americans with illegal employment discrimination. It is well known that Indian and Chinese project managers in high tech and academia only hire their own countrymen.

As usual, Alden does not address other issues, like the intending illegal immigrant. He talks of one student in the U.S. for ten years: "Another had lived in the U.S. for more than a decade and was doing post-doctoral research at Emory University on vaccine immunology." Most likely this guy is a grad student doing his professors work and teaching, in incomprehensible English, to other grad students. And more likely, this same guy is intending to immigrate to the U.S. and is just hanging around academia until he can find an employer to sponsor him. Undoubtedly in his case, the American Consulate in Chennai does not believe that he will be returning to India on his apparently never ending "studies."

As for the top researcher at Intel, "One had been a researcher at Intel on the latest generation of chip designs; he'd won a national prize for his Ph.D. dissertation for outstanding research in electronic and photonic materials.", why did he not renew his visa with the DOS in DC? He certainly could have planned his trip better. And, more importantly, why is he still working as a non-immigrant (H-1B or L-1) for more than six years? Intel should have sponsored him for legal permanent residency. But perhaps Intel prefers a more compliant non-immigrant worker who can put in those 80 hour weeks. No such thing as family time at Intel. Why do you think that Google has free food at their campus? So its employees are discouraged from having to claim to perform the usual daily needs, like cooking, that a normal employee has and go home. Better to keep them at work 15 hours a day on a small base salary.

Alden also excoriates the visa interview. While the short interviews are not that much help, they do quickly weed out much of the fraud. Obviously the visa interview is not much help in the fraud arena for an L-1 or H-1B visa renewal, but the purpose of the attack on interviews is not for this issue, but the goal of the radical left is to eliminate the visa interview completely for all aliens. The left constantly complains that the interviews result in visa denials, and that is the purpose of the visa interviews, to find fraud. Stopping anti-fraud methods is one of the main goals of the radicals, just remember from the amnesty proposal in 2006. Illegal aliens would get status without an interview withing 24 hours, all based on an electronic or paper application. The goal being no denials of any applications.

In any event, the visa interview in the case of students and non-immigrant workers is not the source of any real delay.

Even worse is Alden's urging a return to the Clinton days of Visa Express that gave us Mohammed Atta. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_Express " 'Equally encouraging, the administration's top officials appear to have recognized the importance of the problem. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her commencement speech at New York University last month to pledge that she would "streamline the visa process, particularly for science and technology students, so that even more qualified students will come here.' "

In the end, the delays are based on fraud and national security concerns. In no way can Alden show, as he claims, that these short delays cause any harm in the U.S: "Of all the initiatives undertaken in the name of homeland security after 9/11, the visa screening requirements for foreign scientists and engineers have probably done the most lasting damage to America's economy -- particularly in the cutting-edge technology fields that are vital to our economic leadership and national security."

There is a real harm to national security posed by aliens, but it is their espionage and terrorism, not a fundamental lack of researchers in the U.S. Just look at all these Chinese spies arrested recently, most working for government contractors. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/02/AR2008040203372.html

And how about this: “Offenders since 1990 are more likely to be naturalized citizens, and to have foreign attachments, connections, and ties, and therefore they are more likely to be motivated to spy from divided loyalties.” http://www.fas.org/blog/secrecy/2008/04/the_changing_face.html and http://www.fas.org/sgp/library/changes.pdf

Pretty good reasons for Chinese and Indians to cool their heels at home while we give them a once over.

Its Out: Health Care Reform To Cover Illegals (At Least Some Of Them...Or Maybe Most Of Them)

The Kennedy-Dodd healthcare bill has been leaked. It appears that a large number of illegal aliens will be covered. http://keithhennessey.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/kennedy-draft.pdf (h/t Ace of Spades HQ http://ace.mu.nu/, http://minx.cc/?post=288292 and Keith Hennessey http://keithhennessey.com/2009/06/08/kennedy-health-bill/)

The relevant language from the bill:
"(2) ELIGIBLE INDIVIDUAL-The term 'eligible individual' means an individual who is- "(A) a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence or an alien lawfully present in the United States;"

Now the phraseology "....an alien lawfully present in the United States;" encompasses a large segment of aliens in the U.S. First, it includes aliens admitted to the U.S. for employment. So American taxpayers will be subsidizing aliens brought to the U.S. to replace American workers. Second, it covers any alien admitted to the U.S., including diplomats and tourists. Importantly it will cover Mexicans and Canadians who come frequently to the U.S., Mexicans with border crossing cards and Canadians without any type of control. Already our hospitals on the southern border are overwhelmed with Mexicans using those hospitals for both emergency and routine medical care. Canadians do the same thing along the northern border to evade the rationing by waiting time. The Mexicans avoid the rationing by cost structure. Therefore Americans will be subsidizing both healthcare rationed by waiting time and healthcare rationed by price structure. Add to this the millions of aliens admitted as tourists or for business every year. Every single one of them will be eligible for free healthcare at every level. Remember stories about Korean women coming to the U.S. to give birth so their child will be an American? Now we will have to pay for that privilidge. http://fileus.org/dept/citizenship/02-05-26-latimes-birth_tourism_asia.html

The next class of alien that will get care will be the not so illegal aliens. Here is the art in the term "an alien lawfully present in the United States;" This encompasses several classes of illegal alien. First, the term says lawfully present. There is another term called "constructed legal presence" or "constructed presence" in the actual practice of immigration law enforcement. It means that certain illegal aliens, those who have filed an application for adjustment of status mostly, while technically illegal, are not subject to enforcement and can receive welfare and other benefits without being in the U.S. legally.

Undoubtedly this bill will cover those illegal aliens who have constructed legal presence. Combine that with their illegal alien familymembers who will benefit by free medical care for at least one of their member, and the task of remaining in the U.S. illegally will only be easier. Also undoubtedly, the constructed presence will also apply for illegal alien minors, who now received many federal and state benefits.

Then we have the illegal aliens who have been admitted and their period of admission has not expired. This is how half of illegal aliens enter the U.S., with an ostensively valid visa. Millions of illegal aliens have used B-2 visitor visas and B-1 business visas among other non-immigrant visas to enter the U.S. but they immediately violated their status, usually seeking unlawful employment in the U.S. They will all qualify up until the term of admission expires. But once they get that healthcare card, there will be little effort to weed those out. The unofficial policy will be to ignore their violation, or worse yet, make no effort to discover their violation.

Finally, think amnesty. Every single alien who gets amnesty will immediately qualify for the healthcare benefit, as amnesty give an alien legal presence. Again, this benefit will probably be extended to illegals before they are approved for amnesty, probably immediately upon filing for amnesty or for any other immigration benefit.

So, what we have is stealth healthcare for illegal aliens. By hook or by crook most illegals will be covered by this "reform." And with the full support of Baraka Hussein Obama.

Slowly It Turns, Inch By Inch, Casting It's Evil Eye About

The Obama Regime Department of Injustice, where race, sex, and national origin are the basis for their actions, not the law, is on the rampage, allegedly, against Silicon Valley and the titans of high tech.

The DOinJ is concerned that the companies are not competing over and poaching each others employees. While schadenfreude makes me happy that these companies, who contributed millions to Obama are getting hit, what is not being prosecuted by the DOinJ is more important. This lawsuit, which I doubt will go far, is like a bikini: It is covering the most important parts. And the most important part here is Google. Microsoft, Yahoo, and Genentech's use of non-immigrant aliens on working visas to replace American workers.

All the big and small Silicon Valley and other high tech area companies routinely use alien workers to replace American workers and drive down wages. Such behavior is illegal and the Department of inJustice, Civil Rights Division, Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Labor Practices, is charged with enforcing the laws against discrimination against American and legal permanent resident (LPR) workers. http://www.usdoj.gov/crt/activity.php#osc

What many do not know is that DOinJ CRD OSCIRULP refuses to investigate the largest ongoing pattern of national origin discrimination, high tech firms refusing to hire Americans and LPRs. In refusing to investigate and bring action against employers big and small, especially in the high tech industry which abuses the L-1 and H-1B non immigrant visas in order to drive down wages of Americans and LPRs, the DOinJ provides a subsidy of billions of dollars to these companies in wage savings and increased productivity of these almost indentured non immigrant workers who endure horrible conditions that Americans and LPRs refuse due to the fact that these non-immigrant workers are desparate to be sponsored for immigrant visas by their employers. They will endure anything for this benefit.

The replacement of Americans by these non-immigrant workers is flagrant and ongoing, but the DOinJ refuses to investigate. One reason is the ideology of the CRD trial attorneys who are a bunch of leftist ideologues who just plain hate white people, but both the Jorge Bush Administration and the Obama Regime are lawless in their refusal to investigate. It is amazing that such a rich area of investigative potential remains unexplored. Our current economic crisis and rising unemployment in the high tech sector could be resusitated by massive hiring of Americans and LPRs back into the titans of high tech, and be paid great wages and benefits. However, the Obama Regime is using unemployment as a rationalization for national health insurance, and keeping high tech workers unemployed is part of the Obama Regime plan. And, of course, Eric Holder's and Baraka Hussein Obama's vile and blatant racism is another reason. Without non-immigrants from China and India, the high tech industry would have no minorities. Which itself is interesting, in that the DOinJ CRD also refuses to bring action against the high tech firms for failing to hire blacks and Hispanics. There are virtually none in Silicon Valley, but the DOinJ under both the Bush Administration and the Obama Regime have refused to take action as they do in other cases where blacks and Hispanics are underrepresented, like the New Haven Fire Department. Apparently the millions in contributions has bought their own justice. In any event, this hiring investigation will probably go nowhere, and, like a magician's slight of hand, designed to misdirect the public and give the appearance that something is being done by DOinJ.

Not Good Injuns

One of the little known aspects of the illegal immigration issue is the role that Indian tribes play in border security and alien smuggling. The issue has come up again along the northern border, where alien smuggling is big business in the areas where Mohawk reservations are located. In Canada, the Mowhawks have seized a Canadian border post and shut down traffic across a set of bridges that link their Candian island with both Canada and the U.S. http://www.indiancountrytoday.com/home/content/47044112.html

While this has occured in Canada, it does reflect on serious issues that the U.S. government and the several States have with the Mowhawk tribes. Basically the Mowhawk tribes exist only for smuggling. It used to be alcohol, but after Prohibition was repealed then cigarettes became the major item to be smuggled. Otherwise Mowhawk men went to the big cities, like New York to work in highrise construction. However, honest work was not enough for this tribe and alien and drug smuggling has become the employment of choice. When the women did honest work, it was casino work, but even that is now dominated by Hispanic illegals, especially in the hotels and other low end service jobs. And who better to supply the need for labor that the Mowhawks will no longer provide even on their own reservations, but Mowhawk smugglers.

Combine this with the racist nonsense of the American Indian Movement and the ridiculous claim of sovereignty by Indian tribes, and you create a chain of events that has led to Mohawk and other tribes, mostly on the southern border, to claim that they are free to ignore and interfere with the exercise of control of America's borders.

In the above event, the Mohawks seized a Canadian border inspection post, ostensibly over the plan by Canada to arm its border inspection agency, the Canadian Border Service Agency. However, the real issue that Mohawks have is that armed Canadian officers will no longer be intimidated by armed smugglers. And the Mohawks indirectly admit that, as their second complaint is stepped-up inspections of Mohawks and the refusal of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to accept the Mickey Mouse tribal identification card issued by the local Mohawks as identification, as such cards are routinely sold to or provided to illegal aliens to enter the U.S.

Of course, in the U.S. most Indian tribes claim sovereignty, but, in practice, none are. Since 1924, all American Indians became American citizens. Before that, many tribes were dependants of the U.S. government and had some legal sovereignty, but always in a dependant fashion. No tribe issues passports, exercises law enforcement powers not supervised by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and are subject to federal law. Actually, in most areas, Indian tribes just exercises limited immunity from State law, but not from federal law. Casinos are the best know example.

However, the issue of alien and drug smuggling has brought more attention to the ridiculous claims of sovereignty by Indian tribes. The Mohawks are the worst example, as they actively interfere with U.S. Border Patrol operations and work closely with Chinese and Muslim smuggling organizations along the northern border. Along the southern border, much is the same, with the tribes being both the perpetrator and the victim of smuggling. Most of the Tohono O'odham Nation has been destroyed by smugglers and their refuse, but the tribesmen work on both sides of the battle, many employed as scouts for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, though they should be returned to Customs and Border Protection as ICE has no patrol authority over the southern border. And the Tohono tribal police are subsized and trained by BIA and CBP. However, the Tohono are less hostile to border security than the Mohawks, despite the failure of CBP to build fences on the Tohono reservation.

But, in the end, the myth of Indian tribe sovereignty is a continuing and dangerous gap in our border security, especially in the Mohawk areas as shown by their attack on the Canadian border post. The close contact between the Mohawk tribes and smuggling organizations could be the source of the next 9/11 as other parts of the border become more secure. It is time that the United States exercises its sovereignty by taking control of all areas of the border dominated by Indian tribes, especially in the Mohawk areas where the tribes are a danger to national security and have a tendency to violence.

Obviously, the best way is to end the myth of tribal sovereignty by dissolving the tribes, forcing the tribes to privatize their property either through return to individual tribesmen or form a private corporation. The reservations should come back under the authority of State governments, which the tribesmen already vote in despite the fact that their land has State law immunity. This will have the effect of increasing border security and forcing tribes to use their land for employment opportunities and business development that has been avoided for years because of the fetishization of Indian culture. And, in the future, Indians who fight against sovereignty could get the same treatment as the Confederates got. In any event, since the passage of the 14th Amendment and the naturalization of all Indians by the Act of 1924, the Constitutional basis of Indian sovereignty has no basis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Citizenship_Act_of_1924

Waco, Coming Sooner Than You Think

Eric Holder hates white people. He is constantly searching for the Great White Defendant. And he has a plan and it involves Islam. Islam will replace guns as the source for the next Waco. http://www.usdoj.gov/ag/speeches/2009/ag-speech-090604.html (h/t Powerline http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/06/023744.php)

It seems that Holder will be smarter than Janet Reno. Reno decided that gun owners were an easy target, but got Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Oklahoma City instead. Alot of dead Americans because Janet Reno hated white people and wanted to find the Great White Defendant. While undoubtedly people who object to Islam are sometimes armed, they are not as large and organized a group as gun owners. It will be easier for Holder to isolate and destroy those who object to radical Islam.

I think I know Holder's first target: Michael Savage. The syndicated radio host has been already targeted as an Islamiphobe by the British government. Though their attack on him is not going as well as planned, it could be the first justification for an attack on free speech in the U.S. Perhaps it will not be Savage, but perhaps a lesser known light in talk radio. Or perhaps the radio preacher Reverend Bill Keller.

Perhaps this event was staged by the FBI: http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/06/rememberance-rally-for-us-soldier-murdered-by-jihadi-in-arkansas-crashed-by-fanatical-muslim.html

Now screaming such hate in public is illegal. Why was not this woman arrested. Interference with Exercise of Religious Beliefs and Destruction of Religious Property (18 U.S.C. § 247) -- Violent conduct targeting religious houses of worship, usually involving the arson of churches, synagogues, or mosques--is a federal crime.

Now, according to Eric Holder white Christian people do not have the same rigths as non-whites and it is clear from the above video that the FBI and the Department of Justice will not be enforcing this law on behalf of Christians.

However, Holder will be using the same law to target Christians and to protect Muslims. However, if you are killed by a Muslim terrorist, you are out of luck, as Holder ignored the Arkansas Jihadist Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad and failed to prosecute him for passport fraud or receiving terrorist training.

But the DOJ will probably be prosectuting white people like Brent Matthews in the future. http://www.sunjournal.com/story/196499-3/LewistonAuburn/Feds_not_charging_Matthews_in_mosque_incident/

As a matter of fact, the DOJ will probably start creating hate crimes when there are none, like they did with the mythical church burnings of the 90s. http://www.fumento.com/column9.html And mythical crimes will be used to crackdown on Christians, just as mythical gun crimes were used to justify Waco.

Communists In The State Department

Surprise, surprise. The FBI, actually doing its job instead of wasting its time guarding abortionists, arrested two Democrats and communists, there actually is no difference, for spying for Cuba, Kendall Myers and his wife, Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090605/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/us_us_cuba_spy_charges;_ylt=AuXFwZqkeDlhDFeeCT2QrmtH2ocA;_ylu=X3oDMTNjam82a28zBGFzc2V0Ay9hcC8yMDA5MDYwNS9hcF9vbl9nb19jYV9zdF9wZS91c191c19jdWJhX3NweV9jaGFyZ2VzBGNwb3MDMgRwb3MDMgRzZWMDeW5fdG9wX3N0b3JpZXMEc2xrA2NvdXBsZWFjY3VzZQ--

Some time ago Senator Joseph McCarthy said the State Department was overrun with communists. He was piloried, but correct. The State Department is a soft target for hostile intelligence agencies, especially since the State Department exclusively recruits only leftists, especially the morally bankrupt academic types who have no loyalty to the United States. Additionally, they are especially vunerable because the State Department refuses to use polygraph examinations to weed out potential and ongoing spies. The State Department is also openly hostile to background investigations, having once been told by a background investigator that he considered it his job to help candidates get a job, not prevent damage to the U.S. by spies and those who are disloyal.

Interestingly enough, this pair of spies was recruited before they entered the State Department and were refused jobs by the CIA. However, the couple admitted traveling to Cuba before they were hired. This should have been a red flag and an obvious indicator that they were communists, as in 1978, when they were hired, it was illegal to travel to Cuba.

UPDATE

(h/t American Thinker
http://www.americanthinker.com/)

It appears that the above communist was actively interferring with Bush Administration policies, but was not disiplined. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2006/11/our_undiplomatic_department_of.html
and http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1535639/Britains-special-relationship-just-a-myth.html

But one should not be surprised as the State Department and the American Foreign Service Association, the union of State Department employees, give awards to employees who publically attack Republican Administrations or the State Department when it does not serve the interests of international communism or radical Islam. These awards are issued on government property and using government funds. http://www.afsa.org/awards/ In other agencies, dissent is called insubordination, as bureaucrats don't make policy, elected and appointed officials make policy.

Of course, the Bush Administration has no one to blame but itself as it refused to take action against insubordinate bureaucrats and appointed hostile and incompetants to the Secretary of State position, Colin Powell and Condeleza Rice.

One should also note that they do not have children. This is symptomatic of communists and should have been a red flag. The radical left hate children and only use them as a reason to increase taxes.
