Tesla Didn't Start The Policy Of Replacing American Workers With Foreigners

Tesla is in the news for hiring practices by its sub-contractors involved in the expansion of its automobile production in its Fremont, CA, manufacturing plant.  The welfare dependant car producer, is not uniquely guilty in the policy of replacing American workers with foreigners.  While eventually Tesla can, and will be held responsible, for replacing American workers with aliens working at low wages, it is more innocent than other American companies who hate American workers, both white-collar and blue-collar.

Basically, this is what Tesla did; it was building a modern automobile production plant.  It contracted with Eisenmann GmbH, a Germany based multinational corporation with expertise in manufacturing plant construction, which it hired to construct a paint plant where Tesla vehicles would be painted. Nothing unusual about that.  Eisenmann, of course, had to install it's unique equipment in the growing Tesla plant in Fremont, CA.  To install this equipment, it was entitled to send it's own employees to the plant to supervise the installation of the equipment.  This is legal based on the principle that Eisenmann had unique knowledge that only its employees could supply.  Said employees are admissible to the United States on the B-1 visa for the limited purpose of supervising the installation of its systems.  The B-1 visa does not permit the use of said labor for general or skilled construction, only the installation of specific systems unique to the manufacturer, who is also installing the system. 

When Gregor Lesnik left his pregnant girlfriend in Slovenia for a job in America, his visa application described specialized skills and said he was a supervisor headed to a South Carolina auto plant.
Turns out, that wasn’t true. 
The unemployed electrician had no qualifications to oversee American workers and spoke only a sentence or two of English. He never set foot in South Carolina. The companies that arranged his questionable visa instead sent Lesnik to a menial job in Silicon Valley. He earned the equivalent of $5 an hour to expand the plant for one of the world’s most sophisticated companies, Tesla Motors.
Lesnik’s three-month tenure ended a year ago in a serious injury and a lawsuit that has exposed a troubling practice in the auto industry. Overseas contractors are shipping workers from impoverished countries to American factories, where they work long hours for low wages, in apparent violation of visa and labor laws.
About 140 workers from Eastern Europe, mostly from Croatia and Slovenia, built a new paint shop at Tesla’s Fremont plant, a project vital to the flagship Silicon Valley automaker’s plans to ramp up production of its highly anticipated Model 3 sedan. Their story emerged from dozens of interviews conducted by the Bay Area News Group, and an extensive review of payroll, visa and court documents.
[The Hidden Workforce Expanding Tesla’s Factory, by Louis Hansen, San Jose Mercury News, May 15, 2016]


The victim in this case, the Slovenian worker, was performing general and skilled construction work, in violation of immigration laws. Tesla claimed that it had an arms length relationship with Eisenmann, but in the end, Tesla directed and controlled the work of Eisenman and Eisenmann's sub-contractor, Vuzem, Inc.  It will be held liable, but there was nothing in its relationship with Eisenmann that called for illegal alien workers.  In fact, Tesla is claiming that it paid required Eisenmann to pay its workers $55.00 an hour.  Eisenmann has, of course, turned on its sub-contractor, Vuzem, so we will soon find out the truth, as Vuzem officials seek to not the one holding the bag. And in more than Tesla, as Eisenmann has contracts with other automobile manufacturers in the U.S., such as Volkswagen.

But as unpatriotic as Tesla was, and Eisenmann USA, the corporate shills for Eisenmann GmbH, is, Tesla is not as guilty as The Boeing Company is.  Boeing, as reported before by this blog, is directly hiring illegal aliens using the same visa scheme as Eisenmann or Vuzem.  For a number of years it has been bringing in B-1 workers from Russia to perform general aeronautical design work, replacing American engineering employees directly.  Initially U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) was deporting these illegal aliens workers, but the Obama Regime interfered with the application of immigration law to The Boeing Company, and eventually Boeing was allowed to continue to replace American workers with Russian workers.

With the principle set that The Boeing Company can violate U.S. immigration laws and replace American workers with Russian workers using the B-1 visa, why are Tesla and Eisenmann being held to a different standard?  That, obviously, will be part of the legal wrangling in the future if ICE SVU gets off its keister and starts arresting Eisenmann and Tesla corporate officials for alien smuggling and unlawful employment of illegal aliens, violations of Title 8 United States Code, Section 1324, Bringing In And Harboring Certain Aliens, and Title 8 United States Code, Section 1324a, Unlawful Employment of Aliens.

The only question is when the Obama Regime will shut down any investigation as part of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, as Tesla and Eisenmann have legal precedent on their side.

Illegal Aliens Outraged They Aren't Getting Benefits

The much abused and quite useless U visa program is in the news again.  The New York Times, in it's typical function as a lobbyist for illegal aliens has another profile of U visa applicants, this time complaining that the process is slow and too few visas are available for illegal aliens.  The U visa is a means for alleged victims of crime to legally immigrate to the United States.  It is a major source of fraud because there is no threshold based on the severity of the crime and the contribution of the alleged victim to the successful prosecution of the perpetrator.  The scams illegal aliens use and the NYT unintentionally corroborates my findings.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio made it clear in January: New York State and New York City were stepping up efforts to protect some of the most vulnerable immigrants from deportation.
Undocumented immigrants who are victims of crime and cooperate with law enforcement would have more avenues to apply for special visas that let them stay in the country and work legally. 
But the fanfare masked just how difficult it is to get one of the visas — as one woman from Honduras can attest.
Yoselin, 31, seemingly did everything right when all went wrong for her. She reported domestic violence to the police in Freeport, N.Y., on Long Island, last fall. But she and her advocates say they ran into a series of roadblocks: police prejudice, ignorance of the law on the part of court officials, limited resources from their own organization and suspicion from the authorities that she was trying to get a free pass to stay in the United States by seeking what is known as a U visa.
“I didn’t go through everything for that,” Yoselin said, “because I had no idea that due to my domestic violence I could get a visa.” She asked to be identified only by her first name because she fears retribution from her ex-boyfriend.
[Immigrant Crime Victims Seeking Special Visas Find a Tough Path, by Liz Robbins, NYT, March 8, 2016]

So says the woman with her face in the pages of the New York Times. She's afraid of her ex-boyfriend, who is apparently so stupid he can't identify her by a photograph, but only by her last name.

And the fatty Yoselin is a two-fer.  She was already applying for asylum based on catching a disease, HIV, when she was "pushed" by her ex-boyfriend.  Which made her eligible for a second shot at a green card with the U visa.

Yoselin fled Honduras in 2012. She said she was harassed by her superiors at work there when they found out she was H.I.V.-positive.
After arriving in New York, she filed for asylum, fearing that the persecution based on her H.I.V. status would continue and that the government would not protect her. Since April 2013, Yoselin has been working with a legal team at Immigration Equality, a nonprofit organization representing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and H.I.V.-positive clients.

Add the obesity, and one cannot exactly expect much from her in contribution to the economy. Already on welfare, she will never contribute.  

The police thought differently and said the pushing incident did not rise to the level of a crime.

After a subsequent encounter with her former boyfriend, when he pushed her aggressively, she said, her lawyers said she went into preterm labor and was taken to a hospital. She filed two police reports, but the police did not find probable cause to arrest the man.

More importantly, the police in the case apparently read my blog, and knew that many of the crimes alleged by illegal aliens are false and designed to obtain the U visa.

Her advocate, Laura Rodríguez, a fellow with the Immigrant Justice Corps, said she placed several calls to Detective Michael Pomerico of the Freeport Police Department regarding Yoselin’s safety and the status of the case. Ms. Rodríguez said that when she asked in late October about certifying her cooperation, Detective Pomerico referred to her previous calls as a calculated attempt to get “this visa thing.”

Which was a problem encountered by the unlamented Locke Bell, District Attorney of Gaston County, North Carolina, who properly sussed out the problem with U visa applications flooding his agency from minor and fraudulent crime victim claims. 

Time to end the U visa.  It is not needed.  Crime victims can testify if needed after being paroled into the United States, then deported after the trial.  The U visa was a solution to something that wasn't a problem.

Another Skirmish On The War On The Border Patrol

The exposed liar, R. Gil Kerlikowske, Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, appears to be engaged in an illegal campaign of harassment and retaliation against Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, who testified recently before the House of Representatives and exposed a significant expansion of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.  In his testimony, Judd informed Congress that illegal aliens who are encountered by the U.S. Border Patrol are no longer being arrested if the illegal aliens merely claim to have been in the U.S. two years or more, as the Obama Regime has decreed that such illegal aliens are no longer to be arrested.

Kerlikowske was enraged at the truthful testimony, and issued a qualified denial that this writer document, and confirmed that the catch-and-release policy in such cases is correct, confirming Judd's testimony under oath.  Kerlikowske should, of course, be criminally prosecuted for lying to Congress and impeached.

Since Judd's testimony though, Kerlikowske and certain subordinates in the Border Patrol, have filed false allegations of misconduct against Judd for his accurate testimony.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd testified before the Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee in his role as President of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) and sounded the alarm to lawmakers about policies of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Within days, politically-appointed managers in the Border Patrol agency filed a complaint against leaders of the NBPC. They were apparently emboldened by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske’s statement before the House Appropriations Committee impugning the integrity of Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd. The commissioner, widely hated by Border Patrol agents for his public dismissals of their perspectives, never clarified which aspects of Agent Judd’s testimony with which he took issue.
[Retribution: Border Patrol Agent Suffers After Blowing Whistle to Congress, by Brandon Darby, Breitbart, April 18, 2016]

Such testimony is protected by law, no Federal employee can be disciplined for truthful testimony before Congress, nor can a Federal employee be disciplined for exercising his First Amendment rights. Furthermore, no Federal employee can be ordered to commit an unlawful act, commonly known as the Nuremberg Principle. So Judd is protected by the Constitution and by law for his testimony, nor can he be disciplined for failing to follow the unlawful Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.

This attack on the First Amendment and the rights of Americans is not the first though.  The Treason Bar has been at the forefront of the war on the Constitution in the name of expanding illegal immigration and, more importantly, electing a new people.  In fact, as I wrote in one post, you can have immigration or the First Amendment, but not both, as not only are immigrants themselves unsuited to a republican form of government, as well as the historic American nation, but those who advocate for immigration are enemies of the basic principles of the Constitution, such as free speech.

And its not just the Treason Bar.  American unions are all-in with the war on the First Amendment, with the now misnamed American Federation of Labor Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) in on the war on the Border Patrol and freedom of speech.

Radical leftists pushing for an open borders agenda are attempting to destroy the ability of over 80 percent of our nation’s Border Patrol agents to speak out and sound the alarm to the public and to Congress.  The Huffington Post reported that the open-borders extremist group, Not1More, is a “prominent immigrants rights group” and that they were behind an effort to have the AFL-CIO kick out the National Border Patrol Council from its ranks. Not1More derives its name from the idea that “not one more” illegal alien should be deported from the U.S.
[Leftists Organize to Silence Border Patrol Agents Over Trump Endorsement, by Brandon Darby, Breitbart, April 1, 2016]

The war on the Border Patrol is another skirmish not only on immigration law enforcement, but also on the historic American nation.  As an aside, a warning to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Professional Responsibility or U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Internal Affairs agents assigned to this case, drop it like a hot potato, you can be held legally liable for civil rights violations, e.g. Title 18 United States Code Section 242.  You don't want a visit from the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (DHS OIG).

ICE SVU Targets Black Americans

While U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released 20,000 illegal alien criminals into the United States, ICE Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU) has decided not to arrest any of the other million or so criminal aliens or 20 million run-of-the-mill illegal aliens; instead it has decided to be the gang unit for the United States.  In New York City, the municipality with the largest police department in the nation, ICE SVU has taken over policing in the Big Apple.  In a large operation, it has displaced not only the New York Police Department, but expand its ongoing jurisdictional war with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).  ICE SVU issued a press release, under the section on its website for "Transnational Gangs," claiming that it was the lead agency on a major bust of two deadly rival black New York street gangs, 2Fly YGz (2Fly) and the Big Money Bosses (BMB).

NEW YORK — More than 120 members and associates of two rival gangs operating in the Bronx were indicted in federal court Thursday on charges of racketeering conspiracy, narcotics conspiracy, narcotics distribution, and firearms offenses.
The arrests and indictments follow a year-long investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), with assistance from the New York City Police Department (NYPD), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
Members and associates of street gangs 2Fly YGz (2Fly) and the Big Money Bosses (BMB) allegedly led years-long gang wars which resulted in an enormous amount of fatal and non-fatal violence between 2007 and the present in the Northern Bronx, including shootings, stabbings, slashings, beatings, and robberies.
[ICE HSI Leads The Largest Street Gang Take-Down In New York City History, Press Release, ICE.gov, April 28, 2016]

While drug trafficking is within the jurisdiction of ICE SVU, its jurisdiction is limited to that drug trafficking directly attributable to the actual transit of controlled substances entering the United States.  The DEA has primary jurisdiction over drug trafficking in all cases, except those encountered at the border.  Once controlled substances have entered and are not immediately being tracked by ICE SVU, its within the jurisdiction of the DEA.

Worse though, the ICE SVU press release doesn't mention drugs, except to quote the DEA Special Agent-in-Charge (SAC).  The ICE SVU SAC, Angel M. Melendez, trumpets many crimes that the gangbangers were arrested for, but none of the offenses were of concern to ICE SVU, within its legal jurisdiction, or of any Federal interest.

HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Angel M. Melendez said:  “Those arrested today allegedly used violence and fear to intimidate people who live within and around the Eastchester Gardens Public Housing.  These ruthless gang members are allegedly responsible for more than 1,800 shots fired, resulting in eight alleged homicides.  Public safety is important to us, and today our city streets are safer because of the work of HSI agents in our Violent Gang Unit and the work of our federal and local law enforcement partners.”

All the crimes mentioned are crimes that the NYPD should be dealing with.  Shootings and homicides in public housing are not a concern to ICE SVU, especially given the 535,000 illegal aliens in NYC alone, and 100,000 more in the State of New York.  More importantly there are many major illegal alien gangs and Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTO) in NYC, mostly dominated by Mexican cartels and Domican DTCs, whom the DEA are fighting, but ICE SVU is ignoring.

One would think that ICE SVU's Violent Gang Unit would be targeting violent illegal aliens in gangs, such as Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), but whom are apparently untouchable by ICE SVU, free to rape and murder. But instead, Melendez and ICE SVU are targeting Black American criminals, letting his fellow Hispanic gang members roam free, untroubled by ICE SVU Violent Gang Unit.  Which appears to be the problem, Hispanic Angel Melendez is concerned about black crime, but unconcerned about Hispanic illegal alien crime.
