ICE SVU Avoiding Illegal Aliens And Targeting Americans

No nexus to customs or immigration law, and ICE SVU swoops in, making an arrest in a crime usually the responsibility of local law enforcement.

Morgan Hill: Southern California Man Arrested After Internet Sex Predator Sting
MORGAN HILL -- A 21-year-old Southern California man who police believe traveled to Morgan Hill to have sex with children was arrested over the weekend after a multiagency sting operation targeting sexual predators.
Stephen Lewis, who lives in the San Diego County town of Oceanside, was in contact with an undercover agent on an Internet site frequented by pedophiles, according to Morgan Hill police.
The agent said he would allow Lewis to have sexual relations with his two children, a boy and a girl, both under age 13, said Morgan Hill police Sgt. Carson Thomas...
In addition to Morgan Hill police, Homeland Security Investigations and the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Task Force were involved in the sting.

While there may or may not be a cultural difference between northern and southern California, it is not an international border, just yet.  There is no reason for ICE SVU to be involved in a case of statutory rape.

While ICE SVU was busy targeting Americans, under their very noses, aliens were illegally voting and ICE SVU did nothing.

3 Hamtramck Men Charged With Election Fraud
The state's Attorney General's office has filed felony charges against three Hamtramck men accused of violating election law.
Salim Ahmed, 50, Armani Asad, 33, and Mohammed Russell, 32 are accused of possessing and returning multiple absentee ballots during Hamtramck's August primary election.
It is a felony to possess or return absentee ballots unless you are the person voting, the voter's family member, a mail carrier, or an authorized official.
Asad ran unsuccessfully for Hamtramck city council this past August.
All three men are expected to turn themselves in Thursday for their arraignment. They face up to five years in prison and/or a $1000 fine.

Even if these guys were naturalized, it is unlikely that their vote fraud schemes started only after naturalization.  A little research would most likely show that three were voting before naturalization.

Revere The Emperor, Expel The Barbarian.  This was the rallying cry of the daimyo who overthrew the Tokugawa Shogunate, returning the Emperor of Japan to a more prominent political presence in the Japanese polity.  Of course, the end result was the entrenchment of the opening to the west that the Tokugawa Shogunate started.

However, the sentiment is back in Japanese politics.  The recently elected Shinzo Abe is not putting up with the Red Chinese.  His election slogan was ”We Will Take Back Japan.” Shockingly similar to the Satsuma and Choshu daimyos' imperial restoration slogan.

We Will Take Back Japan
On Sunday Japan’s Parliament will hold upper house elections, and the ruling party of nationalist Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to win comfortably. If that’s the case, it will be a strong endorsement of his policies in the eight months since he assumed office. Those policies—a stronger military and a more nationalist, more antagonistic foreign policy than anything seen in previous administrations, plus a bold economic stimulus program—have been very popular so far. Support for a stronger military continues to grow...
Emphasizing the shift in defense policy, Abe visited two remote islands in Okinawa Prefecture this week. He told coast guard officers: ”I intend to lead the way in efforts to protect our territorial land, water and sky till the very end.” He recently posed for photos in a tank and fighter jet. His party’s mantra in the lead-up to Sunday’s election is ”We Will Take Back Japan.” An unnamed senior source told Reuters today that Japanese exploration ships will operate “right up to the median line” in response to a Chinese plan to explore disputed areas in the East China Sea.

Abe's slogan though sounds more like the national slogan adopted after the restoration, fukoku kyōhei, strong army, strong country, when the ruling daiymo realized that the samurai spirit would not be sufficient when confronted with ironclads and Maxim guns.

And the Japanese have realized that they need a stronger military.

Japan Unveils New Carrier-Like Warship, Largest In Navy Since WWII
YOKOHAMA, JAPAN –  Japan on Tuesday unveiled its biggest warship since World War II, a huge flat-top destroyer that has raised eyebrows in China and elsewhere because it bears a strong resemblance to a conventional aircraft carrier.
The ship, which has a flight deck that is nearly 820 feet long, is designed to carry up to 14 helicopters. Japanese officials say it will be used in national defense -- particularly in anti-submarine warfare and border-area surveillance missions -- and to bolster the nation's ability to transport personnel and supplies in response to large-scale natural disasters, like the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
Though the ship -- dubbed "Izumo" -- has been in the works since 2009, its unveiling comes as Japan and China are locked in a dispute over several small islands located between southern Japan and Taiwan. For months, ships from both countries have been conducting patrols around the isles, called the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyutai in China.

At a time when India and China are in a carrier race, it is good that the Japanese realize their national existence is threatened.  While the Indians and Chinese are dependent on Russia for their carrier and other naval technology, Japan is rapidly re-developing their indigenous shipbuilding capacity.  The next step for the Japanese is the relaunch of their fixed-wing carrier fleet, a necessary step as the Russo-Indo-Sino policy is to build ski-launch type carriers, which are markedly inferior to American catapult based carriers, even the conventional powered Kitty Hawk class, much less the Nimitz or Ford class super carriers.  Japan is taking its first steps and needs to realize that it must, if it wants to maintain its national identity, to lead the carrier arms race.

And it appears that the humiliation of the Second World War has reached it nadir in Japan and it is climbing back to its rightful status as a world power.

Abe’s Advisory Panel To Urge Lifting Of Ban On Collective Self-Defense
A private advisory panel to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will recommend Japan lift its self-imposed ban on the right to collective self-defense, as well as the use of force to protect other nation's troops in U.N. peacekeeping operations, by broadening the government's interpretation of the Constitution.
Under the interpretation, Japan possesses the right to collective self-defense, but cannot exercise it since it exceeds the limits on the use of its military.
“The current government interpretation is so narrow that it bans even what the Constitution does not ban,” said Shunji Yanai, chairman of the Advisory Panel on Reconstruction of the Legal Basis for Security and a former ambassador to the United States, on a Japan Broadcasting Corp. (NHK) TV program on Aug. 4. “The Constitution allows Japan to exercise the right to collective self-defense. To participate in U.N.-led collective security activities is Japan’s duty.”
The private panel was set up by Abe in 2007 during his first run as prime minister to examine four categories of collective self-defense and U.N.-led collective security activities: (1) repelling attacks against a U.S. fleet on the open sea; (2) intercepting ballistic missiles fired toward the United States; (3) using weapons to safeguard units of other countries engaged in joint U.N. peacekeeping operations; and (4) providing a wider range of logistic support to other nations for peacekeeping operations.

The infamous no war clause in the post-war constitution was the only major error that General Douglas MacArthur made while regent in Japan.  As war is just politics by other means, this placed Japan at a disadvantage in East Asia in the post war years.  No other country in that region ever rejected war as a national policy.  This rebounded only the benefit of the Soviet Union and now Red China.  Borders and war are both policies that nations need to survive in the real world.  It is good to see that the Japanese are returning to the aircraft carrier and to war.  Collective self-defense is just a first step, as is a helicopter "destroyer."

A Rational Immigration Policy

Singapore To Tighten Rules On Hiring Of Foreigners
SINGAPORE —Singapore has announced tighter rules on the hiring of foreign professional workers, saying companies will from next year have to show proof they first tried to recruit local citizens.
The change, taking effect in August 2014, follows protests and online complaints about the large number of foreigners in the affluent city-state.
The Ministry of Manpower said companies that discriminate against citizens “will be subject to additional scrutiny” when they apply for employment passes for foreign professionals.
“Even as we remain open to foreign manpower to complement our local workforce, all firms must make an effort to consider Singaporeans fairly,” Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan Jin said in a statement.
“What we are doing is to put in place measures to nudge employers to give Singaporeans—especially our professionals, managers and executives—a fair chance at both job and development opportunities.”
About 37% of Singapore’s total workforce of 3.36 million in 2012 were non-resident.

Singapore will adopt some common sense practices, including requiring advertisement and employment offers to qualified Singaporeans.

The ministry said companies must first advertise for Singaporeans to fill job vacancies in a national jobs bank administered by the government’s workforce development agency.

Foreigners can be hired if no citizens are qualified.

Firms which have a “disproportionately low concentration” of Singaporean employees at professional level, and companies where foreign managers are accused of favoring their own compatriots in hiring, will also be put under tighter scrutiny, the ministry said.

Firms with 25 or fewer staff, or those recruiting for jobs paying Sg$12,000 ($9,580) and above a month, will be exempted from the advertising rule.

Authorities have been phasing in measures to tighten foreign worker inflows after facing criticism from Singaporeans, who accuse foreigners of competing with them for jobs, housing, schools and space on public transport.

The people of Singapore were also concerned that the government elite were electing a new people.

Singaporeans have also complained that the rapid influx in previous years is eroding their national identity.
The discontent spilled into general elections in 2011 when the ruling party garnered its lowest-ever vote count after more than 50 years in power.
Two rallies against the government’s immigration policy were held earlier this year garnering crowds of more than 3,000, making them the country’s biggest protests in decades.

Interestingly, no accusations of racism yet.  Lots of those foreign professionals are whites from the UK, Australasia, Canada, and South Africa.  Not to mention that Japanese corporations pefer to staff their overseas operations with temporary transfers from the Home Islands.  Singaporeans also have a strange relationship with Overseas Chinese from Malaysia.  Many employers are dependent on them for skilled labor and the minor professions, including the famous Singapore Girls who for many years were predominately Malaysian Chinese.

Singapore does show that immigration reform can be done correctly.  It can bring a rational policy to a nation that needs skilled and unskilled labor.  Here Singapore uses rational policies and national interest in developing an immigration policy based on temporary employment, skills, and wages. Unlike the United States which brings in aliens as permanent residents regardless of income or skill. Time for the United States to adopt an immigration policy not based on family unification, but on income and skills in the workplace, but not at the expense of the American worker.  It would also help to force blacks into the workforce by ending welfare.

ICE SVU Still Waging War On The DEA

A major marijuana grow has been broken up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit.  Never mind that the enforcement of Title 21 of the United States Code is the responsibility in the United States of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).  But ICE SVU wants out of immigration enforcement and is poaching on DEA territory.

$1 Million In Marijuana Found In Central Valley Drug Den
Eight men with ties to a Mexican drug ring were arrested after authorities in the Central Valley discovered a drug den filled with more than $1 million in processed marijuana, authorities said.
A narcotics team served a search warrant to residents inside the Madera home Wednesday after receiving a tip of a "menacing grow," said Erica Stuart, spokeswoman for the Madera County Sheriff's Office. 
Agents seized 83 plants, 500 pounds of processed marijuana and another 30 pounds of packaged marijuana "ready to hit the streets," she said.
Authorities said they believe the rental property had been converted into a marijuana-processing center and had been in business for a while.
"This was blatant organized crime," Stuart said.
The men said they did not reside in the home but had been "dropped off" at the location and assigned to "work marijuana."
Stuart said she has seen cases in which Mexican nationals enter the United States looking for work as farmers, but are instead taken and forced to work in marijuana groves.
Authorities arrested Alfredo Santos Cruz, 23, of Madera; Jose Herrera, 18, of Lamont; Rafael Barroso Gutierrez, 23, of Sanger; Andreas Gutierrez , 27, of Sanger; Adrian Martinez Silva, 24, of Sanger; Jesus Torres Barragan, 28, of Sanger; Rodolfo Herrera Reyes, 32, of Fresno; and Julio Cesar Bricnollo, 26, of San Fernando.

Surprisingly ICE SVU placed an immigration hold on all the subjects.

The men were booked on suspicion of felony narcotics charges and placed under immigration detainer hold with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

More interestingly, had the Madera County Sheriff's Office arrested the above men for a lesser crime or if Madera County SO was a 287g agency, ICE SVU would not have placed an immigration hold, claiming that the men, prior to being identified as major drug criminals, were not a priority.  Perhaps if ICE SVU had the priority of arresting illegal aliens before they engaged in drug crimes, then problem of Mexican organized marijuana grows would have been nipped in the bud before the grows became a major menace in Madera County.

Hmong Menace Strikes Again

The menace of violent Southeast Asian immigrants continues apace.  A young man was murdered viciously by a crazed Hmong immigrant.  Note also that the victim was a white Hispanic, but nothing was said of this.

San Francisco Man Arrested For 'Shooting Promising Young College Student In The Back Of The Head' In Random, Unprovoked Murder
A San Francisco area man was arrested Tuesday and charged shooting a 20-year-old college sophomore in the back of the head as the stepped off a train in front of the victim's house.

Justin Valdez was an upbeat sophomore at San Francisco State University on his way home in the Ingleside Heights neighborhood around 9:50 Monday night, officials say.
He shared the train home with 30-year-old Nikhom Thephakaysone, the man who would be arrested the following day for Valdez's cold-blooded and, according to police, random slaying.

First rule of minority murder is to never mention the race of the victim.  Second rule of minority murder is to never mention interracial crime when both victim and perpetrator are of color.  Third rule of minority murder is to never mention white Hispanics unless they are the perpetrator against a person of another color.

An Immigration Or Customs Law Violation?

Well, no.  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU) continues its policy of not enforcing the immigration and customs laws of the United States.  ICE SVU does not want to enforce immigration and customs laws.  It has decided that it will enforce State against sex with minors.  Usually that is the responsibility of State and local law enforcement agencies.

Ashbury Park Press September 17, 2013
Man Charged In Monmouth County Child Sex Sting
TRENTON — A Georgia man was charged Monday with illegal sexual conduct and child pornography offenses after investigators say he traveled from New York to Monmouth County last week to have sex with a minor, according to the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey.
Richard J. Simone Jr., 23, of Acworth, Ga., who at the time was living in Long Island, was taken into custody on Friday in Monmouth County. The exact town was not revealed.
Simone was charged on Monday with one count of traveling across state lines for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and also with one count of distribution of child pornography, according to a statement issued by U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman.

So, a Federal agent charged with and trained to enforce the immigration and customs laws of the United States, ICE SVU Special Agents receive 22 weeks of training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center located at Brunswick, GA.  First they complete 10 weeks of training in the Criminal Investigator Training Program, then an additional 12 weeks of agency specific training.  Interestingly enough, ICE SVU recruitment brochures no longer even mention work-site enforcement or general immigration law enforcement.  The major areas mentioned to prospective employees are Threats to National Security and Public Safety, Human Smuggling and Trafficking, Drug Smuggling, Counter-Proliferation Investigations, Gang Investigations, Financial and Money-Laundering Crimes, Customs Trade Fraud, Immigration Fraud, and Cyber and Child Exploitation Crimes.  Note that ICE no longer performs immigration fraud investigations, that is left to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services National Security and Fraud Detection officers, who do not even have arrest authority.  Drug smuggling is the responsibility of the Drug Enforcement Agency and the FBI.  National Security investigations are also the responsibility of the FBI.  Child abuse and child rape are the responsibility of State and local law enforcement agencies.  Operation Greenback, the premier legacy U.S. Customs Service operation regarding money laundering, was handed over to the FBI in 2003.  Export control and counter-proliferation investigations are the responsibility of the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security.

In summary, ICE SVU wants every law enforcement responsibility under the sun, both Federal and State, except the enforcement of customs and immigration laws, with a strange obsession with child pornography and child sex investigations.  ICE SVU is so outside its jurisdiction, it investigates a man from Georgia for seeking out sex with a child in Monmouth County, NJ.  Monmouth County has a Sheriff's Office, the municipalities in Monmouth County have police departments.  Why does ICE SVU avoid arresting the 20 million illegal aliens in the United States and concentrate on a crime that another law enforcement agency already has responsibility for?  Because Barack Hussein Obama wants to elect a new people.

ICE SVU Arrests Americans And Releases Illegal Aliens

U.S. Immigration and Customs Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU), officially known as ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) continues its priority of arresting Americans and facilitating illegal immigration, including that by criminal aliens.

First, ICE SVU announced that its newly minted Operation Predator application for the iPhone had its first arrest, an American citizen who was not accused of a crime involving violations of either customs laws or immigration laws.  Interestingly enough, ICE SVU had the assistance of the Michigan State Police.  Which begs the question, if there was no real Federal interest, e.g. child pornography which is within the police powers of the several States according to the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, why was the Federal law enforcement agency responsible for immigration and customs law enforcement involved in a matter best left to the States?

ICE Arrests Sexual Predator While 3,000 Deportable Alien Sex Offenders Released
Less than 36 hours after US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) announced the availability of its new Operation Predator smartphone app to solicit information from the public about wanted child predators, a Michigan man profiled in the app was arrested.

Meanwhile, however, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress’ investigatory and audit branch, disclosed in an audit report that according to ICE, of the 59,347 aliens under an order of supervision as of September 2012, 2,837 (5 percent) were deportable aliens who’d been convicted of a sex offense” who had been released from detention.

GAO explained in its report, which was redacted because it contains law enforcement sensitive information, that there are circumstances in which criminal aliens who have been ordered deported from the United States -- including those convicted of a sex offense -- cannot be removed. For example, a criminal alien may not be removed because the designated country will not accept the alien’s return, GAO determined.

Because ICE SVU is wasting millions of dollars duplicating work by the FBI, State and local law enforcement, ICE SVU was unable to detain tens of thousands of criminal aliens.

In July 2012, the House Committee on the Judiciary released a report that said thousands of illegal and criminal immigrants released by federal authorities as a result of the Obama administration’s lax immigration policies have gone on to commit more crimes, including murder, rape, kidnapping and child molestation.

The report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) contained an analysis of crosschecked data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that was subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee. The Committee subpoenaed the agency following the Obama administration’s announcement to stop deporting certain illegal immigrants flagged by Secure Communities, a law enforcement program that identifies illegal immigrants arrested and booked in local jails.

The data provided to the committee by DHS included 276,412 records of charges against illegal and criminal immigrants identified by Secure Communities between October 27, 2008 and July 31, 2011. There were 159,286 unique individuals in the database and 205,101 unique arrest incidents.

Of those released, CRS found that about 17 percent of illegal and criminal immigrants, or 26,412, were rearrested on criminal charges. These 26,412 recidivists accounted for a total of 42,827 arrests and 57,763 alleged violations.

The categories of crimes charged include nearly 8,500 DUI (14.6 percent), over 6,000 drug violations (10.9 percent), more than 4,000 major criminal offenses (7.1 percent), which included murder, assault, battery, rape and kidnapping, nearly 3,000 theft (4.9 percent), and over 1,000 other violent crimes (2.1 percent), that included carjacking, child cruelty, child molestation, domestic abuse, lynching, stalking and torture.

Now, the press is parroting th blame ICE puts on the Supreme Court, which in Zadvydas v. Davis restricted detention of illegal aliens who ICE refused to deport.

In its 5-4 decision in the case of Zadvydas v. Davis, the Supreme Court ruled that the indefinite detention of deportable illegal aliens for greater than six months is unconstitutional unless there is “significant likelihood of removal in the reasonably foreseeable future.”

“Freedom from imprisonment lies at the heart of the liberty protected by the Due Process Clause,” said Associate Justice Stephen Breyer in the majority opinion. Breyer was joined in this opinion by Justices J.P. Stevens, Sandra Day O'Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and David Souter.

However, the fault lay not with the insipid reasoning of the SCOTUS majority opinion, but in the failure of both the Jorge Bush and Obama Regimes to effect the removal of this class of aliens that certain countries refuse to accept for return.

Both the Bush and Obama Regimes had a option when confronted with intransigence by the country of nationality of deportees.  Quite simply, the Regimes could have either on their own executive authority or based on legislation passed by Congress, informed the obstructionist governments that visas, both immigrant and non-immigrant for said country's nationals would not be issued or previously issued visas would be cancelled based on that country's refusal to accept deportees.  Neither the Bush Regime or the Obama Regime use that authority.  Both were quite content to release illegal alien criminals, who would then go on to prey upon Americans.  These illegal alien criminals would cut a wide swath of murder, rapine, mayhem, robbery and abuse with George Bush and Barack Hussein Obama unconcerned about the victims of these crimes.  Leave it not said that there are no two people who hate America and Americans more than Bush and Obama.

And for the record, ICE SVU does not have an app to report illegal aliens.

Hispanics Continue To Drag Down California Schools

Hispanic students continue to fail in California schools showing that all the money in the world cannot buy what nature has not given.

San Jose Mercury News August 9, 2013 by Sharon Noguchi
California STAR Tests: Students In Santa Clara, San Mateo And Santa Cruz Counties Drop In Proficiency
Reflecting a statewide trend, students in Santa Clara, San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties slipped this year in academic performance, while their schools also stalled in campaigns to narrow the gap between high- and low-achieving groups of students, according to standardized test scores released Thursday.
The score decline ends eight straight years of gains in achievement in math and English, as measured on California's Standardized Testing and Reporting assessments, a battery of tests administered each spring.

As usual, white and Asians outpace Hispanics.

But dissecting that figure reveals that 80 percent of Asian students tested proficient, but only 21 percent of Latino students did, the same as in the two previous years. Still, algebra proficiency among Latinos has increased dramatically over nine years ago, when it was only 8 percent.
The gap is nearly as wide in Santa Clara County reveal results for math in grades 2 to 7: Proficiency was 92 percent for Asians, 83 percent for whites, and 53 percent for Latinos. After narrowing last year, the white-Latino gap grew by a point. In 10th grade science, proficiency was 83 percent among Asians and 38 percent among Latinos, according to results culled by the Santa Clara County Office of Education.
A similar gap exists in San Mateo County.
Latino math scores are 30.7 percentage points lower than those of whites, compared with a 20 percentage-point gap statewide. And in science, the white-Latino gap is 38.6 percentage points in San Mateo County, versus 28.2 percent in the state.

What it tells us is that the achievement gap is insoluble, and further immigration by low achievers will do nothing for a State collapsing in on itself.

A further look at the graph for student scores shows a big fat F, achievement plateaued at 56% proficiency.

Vote Fraud By Aliens Continues

Even previously low immigrant North Carolina has developed a problem with illegal voting by aliens, and along with its alien population, the problem is increasing.

Voter Integrity Project September 4, 2013
(Raleigh, NC)—SEP 4, 2013— Between 2008 and 2012, 475 cases of voter fraud in North Carolina were referred for prosecution, according to a new NC Board of Elections report obtained by the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina (after repeated requests), which undermines claims that voter fraud in North Carolina is insignificant.
“This looks like an interim report, but it shows some disturbing numbers,” said Jay DeLancy, Executive Director of Voter Integrity Project-NC.  “Because reports of voter fraud often don’t get referred for prosecution until the year after an election, the extent of potential fraud in the 2012 election still remains to be seen. The large increase in fraud referrals in 2012 over 2008 suggests that substantial fraud occurred in last year’s election, but the full numbers have not yet been reported. In any event, these numbers totally crush the lie that there is no voter fraud in North Carolina”

And here is the chart showing huge increases in alien voting.  Together with other fraudulent voting by Democrats, this may explain Obama's victories there and in other States.  It does appear that real Republicans are taking steps though.

Obamacare And Immigrants

Among the failures of Obamacare to end the so-called problem of the uninsured is that it is not quite achieving its purpose of ending the problem of the poor and healthcare.  Of course Obamacare's premise is that the current hodgepodge of healthcare programs for the poor who want better healthcare is that with a unified system there will be savings in administering healthcare through a nationalized health insurance system.  However, not only is the program failing to meet that goal, with at least half of those qualifying for welfare healthcare not eligible for the Obamacare system, but the problem itself has exposed the true source of the problem of welfare healthcare, immigrants.

Left Behind: Stories From Obamacare’s 31 Million Uninsured
Every month, a hundred or so people crowd the lobby of the Arlington Free Clinic, clutching blue tickets to enter a health-care lottery. Uninsured and ailing, they hope to be among the two dozen who hit the jackpot and are given free care.
Some might think the lottery’s days are numbered, given that the insurance expansion under President Obama’s health-care law is taking effect in January. But clinic officials say the lottery will stay because demand for their services is likely to be as high as ever. “We will be business as usual,” said Nancy Sanger Pallesen, the clinic’s executive director.
The Affordable Care Act, the most sweeping health care program created in a half century, is expected to extend coverage to 25 million Americans over the next decade, according to the most recent government estimates. But that will still leave a projected 31 million people without insurance by 2023. Those left out include undocumented workers and poor people living in the 21 states, such as Virginia, that have so far declined to expand Medicaid under the statute, commonly called Obamacare.
“The law will cut the number of the uninsured in half,” said Matthew Buettgens of the Urban Institute. “This is an important development, but it certainly isn’t the definition of universal.”

And as the story continues, immigrants in the underclass dependent on welfare for their healthcare keep popping up in the WaPo story.

On a recent Tuesday, the line for the lottery went around the block. It included a wide range of patients, including young children and the middle-aged who spoke English, Spanish, Arabic and Mandarin and other languages.
“I need a doctor for a lot of things,” said Ebtsam Ibrahim, a 46-year-old Egyptian woman and mother of four. She said she has had a toothache for two years but hasn’t seen a dentist because of the cost. She was trying for the third time to win the lottery.
Nazmun Nahar, a 33-year-old mother of three, arrived cradling her one-year-old daughter in her arms. She and her husband are Bangladeshi immigrants who became American citizens over a decade ago.
Because Nahar’s husband makes about $30,000 a year working at Subway, the family of five would likely qualify for generous subsidies to buy private health coverage under Obamacare. But like many of the lottery hopefuls, Nahar knew little about the law or how it would work.

And more:

By mid-morning, the winning lottery tickets had been selected for 28 participants. A beaming Ibrahim, the Egyptian mother, was among the winners. A husband and wife from Russia also won one ticket that day. Each insisted that the other be the first to take advantage of the free health care, moving some clinic staff members to tears.

And still more:

Vidal Grajeda, 68, a retired painter and landscaper who previously won a spot through the lottery, was with his wife, Nicolasa Grajeda, 64, who took part in the lottery but did not win.  
I’m a patient and very grateful to the clinic,” he said. He doesn’t qualify for Medicare because he didn’t work long enough in the United States. At the clinic, he receives treatment for diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and knee problems. He asked the clinic’s director of clinical administration, Jody Steiner Kelly, whether the clinic will be open and working after Oct. 1, when people can start enrolling in coverage offered under Obamacare.

It appears that immigrants, some legal, others apparently illegal, are the major source of clients for the free clinics supported mostly exclusively by the taxpayers at either the State or Federal level.  Just look at this photograph proudly displayed in the story.  A picture is truly worth a thousand words. Affordable healthcare for the millions of immigrants, legal and illegal, is going to be very expensive.

Not Just Hmong Murder Or Hmong Welfare

The Hmong have branched out from callous mass murder and welfare dependency, they are using their priviledged position in America to engage in immigration and employment fraud.  Usually the Hmong donut shop owners depend on the extended family to make up for the long hours and low profit margins that the retail donut business requires.  However, as Hmong immigration has slowed and the welfare state provided fewer incentives to work, what little work the Hmong do has become more difficult.  The Hmong have branched out into the Slave Power.

Federal Bureau of Investigation Press Release September 13, 2013
Houston Mom and Son Donut Shop Owners Charged with Witness Tampering
HOUSTON—Kim Hout Lor, 66, and Bun Vireak Long, 19, have been taken into custody on charges of tampering with witnesses in a pending official proceeding, announced United States Attorney Kenneth Magidson today. Lor is also charged with making false statements...
According to allegations, the mother and son operated a donut shop in Porter called Pat’s Donuts, Kolaches, & Tacos, which had been under an investigation by the Department of Labor (DOL)-Wage and Hour Division for allegedly not properly compensating its work force.
Lor allegedly withheld information from investigators about undocumented aliens under her employment, the total number of employees she employed, and the number of hours her employees worked, according to the indictment. Additionally, Lor and Long allegedly contacted witnesses and undocumented aliens they employed during the pending investigation to intimidate, threaten, or corruptly persuade them in an effort to influence or prevent their testimony to DOL investigators.

One can admire the few Hmong who leave the siren song of welfare, and donuts were one of the few successes for Hmong immigrants.  However, it is clear that the Hmong, as for many immigrant groups, they just can't make it in the United States.  Time to end Hmong immigration and that of other groups that fail in a modern society.

Obama Regime Confirms That Obamacare For Nonimmigrants

During the Obamacare debate patriots were able to force Congress to prohibit illegal aliens from participating in Obamacare, at least directly.  Since identity and income will not be verified, the prohibition will be observed mostly in its absence. 

Illegals were formally prohibited by a clause in Obamacare that states all aliens covered by Obamacare must be legally present. What that means is besides the 1.2 million or so immigrants admitted to the United States each year, 1,031,631 in 2012, the 165 million non-immigrants admitted in 2012 were also eligible for Obamacare.

And the Regime has admitted it.  (h/t PJ Media)

While most non-immigrants won't use Obamacare, every tourist, student, and Mexican border crosser will be legally eligible.  Add to that immigration status will not be verified when a person applies for Obamacare, that number of eligible aliens will also include the 20 million illegal aliens living in the United States.  And since John Boehner does not want to defund Obamacare, consider that another aspect of Boehner's support for illegal immigration.

Mexican Cops Don't Like The Second Amendment

Mexican cops in Mexican occupied San Antonio don't like Americans exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  Three Mexican cops in that once beautiful city, home of the Alamo, cited three open carry activists exercising their rights under the 2nd Amendment and protected by Texas statute for disturbing the peace for daring to carry legal firearms openly in a lawful manner.  The three Mexican cops wasted 20 minutes of what even they admitted was precious police time.  (h/t Every Day No Days Off)

The Mexican cops openly admitted that their harassment of the Americans was at the expense of victims of violent crime, as two of the three officers, including a sergeant, were not responding to waiting calls for service involving violent crimes.

More evidence that the Second Amendment is threatened by immigration.  Fortunately some Second Amendment advocates are learning, such as Gun Owners of America.

No Need To Drive Down Wages

One argument of the Slave Power in the immigration debate is that to compete in the world, wages need to be driven down.  Well, that does not appear to be necessary if this story is correct.

1st US-Made Smartphone Just As Cheap To Produce
NEW YORK (AP) — Motorola's new Moto X phone doesn't cost more to make simply because it's assembled in Texas, research firm IHS said Wednesday.
The Moto X is the first smartphone to carry the "Made in the U.S.A." designation. Labor costs are higher in the U.S. compared with Asian factories, where phones are typically made. But IHS said the Moto X is about 5 percent cheaper to make than Samsung Electronic Co.'s flagship Galaxy S4 phone. The firm said the Moto X's overall production cost is just 9 percent more than that of Apple's iPhone 5...
IHS said the estimated $12 for assembly is about $3.50 to $4 more than other leading phones.
"Our initial estimate suggests the additional costs of onshoring the Moto X are relatively low," IHS said.
The phone went on sale last Friday, starting with AT&T. It's coming to other carriers, including Verizon this week. The Moto X's price is about $200 with a two-year service agreement.
The Moto X is Motorola's first phone designed from the start under its new owner, Google Inc. The Internet search company bought Motorola Mobility for $12.4 billion last year.

Perhaps Google will also learn that older American workers are just as productive as foreigners without the substantial cost of shipping across the Pacific Ocean or legions of lawyers necessary for H-1Bs.  It also gives lie to the claim by Marco Rubio and the Gang of Eight that American workers just don't cut it.

Greece Proving There Aren't Jobs Americans Won't Do

One of the problems in the immigration debate that is overlooked is the pernicious influence of welfare state on the workforce participation rate.

Business Insider August 2, 2013
Labor Force Participation Rate Falls In July
Despite the lackluster job growth, the unemployment rate still managed to tick down two notches to 7.4% in July from 7.6% in June.
Part of the reason: the labor force participation rate, which fell to 63.4% last month from 63.5% the month before.
The civilian labor force decreased by 37,000 to 155.80 million in July, while those not in the labor force rose by 240,000 to 89.96 million.

The importance of the decline of workforce participation rate is that the legal workforce, especially, though not exclusively, in the unskilled arena, is being replaced with a cohort of illegal aliens as well as a cadre of legal non-immigrant labor.

Interestingly enough the import of welfare state on labor force participation is highlighted in Greece today.  The economic collapse there has impacted the labor market, forcing legal workers to re-enter the workforce and crowding out illegal aliens in areas traditionally dominated by either illegal or legal alien workers.

Exhibit 1 is the increasing Hellenization of the Greek tourism service industry, something dominated by legal and illegal aliens in the United States.

And this Hellenization of the service industry has been reported by the neo-cons.

Episode 18: A Tiny Dram of Scotch
This week, a GLoP for the ages as the fellows riff Bradley (or Chelsea) Manning, Greenwald's smuggling partner, a detailed report from the front lines of the NR Cruise, Greece and Scotland, thoughts on Lee Daniels' "The Butler", Oprah's handbag, "Breaking Bad" (of course), some comments on commenters, and muse about the Photoshop for this very show. 

Fast forward to 36:30 and you will hear Rob Long's report about how over-educated Greeks are taking over the Greek service industry.  

The importance for the immigration debate in the United States is that we have a large cohort of Americans and Legal Permanent Residents that are for one reason or another out of the workforce despite the ability to work.  Work for a large cohort has been replaced with a fraudulent disability claim, excessive ease of disability claims, the Disability Treason Bar, currently unemployable black youths, and overgenerous welfare.

Economic contraction has forced Greeks from the welfare state back into the workforce and enabled employers to use the local workforce to replace legal and illegal aliens.  One of the areas neglected by nationalists here in the United States is the discipline of the market place that can assist in forcing out the illegal alien workforce. It is not a panacea, but it is a component of any enforce strategy.  Cutting welfare benefits, restricting disability to those actually disabled, like a quadriplegic, as opposed to Stanley Thornton Junior who instead of doing a job Americans won't do he lives his recreational lifestyle as an adult baby off the taxpayers.  

One of the reasons employers like illegal aliens is that in a real economy workers have to work to eat, rather than live fantasy lives on the taxpayer dime. Hunger, shelter, and other basic needs are an important aspect to the employer-employee relationship and the welfare state throws the balance off. 

It is time to bring this part of the immigration debate back to the forefront.
