Illegalize illegals: Time for showdown in open frontier

Illegalize illegals: Time for showdown in open frontier

By WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY JR.

The new intelligence law, courtesy of 9/11, is mystifying because it does not face directly what is the most prominent threat to homeland security. It is: inimical action by non-Americans. All the people who participated in 9/11 were foreigners, here under various auspices. And yet the bill that has evolved from the findings of the 9/11 commission reads like an elocutionary exercise by a national committee to avoid saying anything unpleasant about unpleasant people born abroad.

Specifically, the threat at this moment is from foreign terrorism. The day may come when there are native-born Americans who join in such a threat, such as the Weather Underground types we experienced during the '60s.

But at this point, the terrorists come from abroad. "Last May," writes National Interest editor John O'Sullivan, "illegal aliens from Malaysia, Pakistan, Morocco, Uganda and India were released without bond. They are now at large in the U.S."

What happened is that as the intelligence bill crystallized, a fear developed that it might be construed as xenophobic. Somewhere along the line the word came down from the White House that for the president to be able to sign the bill, it had to be plucked clean of any suggestion that an illegal Muslim fundamentalist should be treated at all differently from an illegal Christian evangelist. Remember the odd deportment of Norman Mineta, who has been reappointed as transportation secretary? He went to extraordinary lengths several years ago to insist that security personnel at airports should pay no greater attention to 30-year-old Near-Eastern Muslims called Mohammed than they would to Shirley Temple.

The immigration problem is the primary unmet challenge of modern times. It is so because the whole of our political establishment cringes at any suggestion that the United States is inhospitable to immigration. We do have laws on the books, but they are apparently made for the sole purpose of flouting them. Time magazine published the most florid essay on the question, estimating the annual flow of illegal immigration at more than 2 million persons.

There are two questions on the table. The first deals with raw immigration: How many people beyond those formally welcome under existing laws should we admit into the United States? The second, what are the risks to security in being as offhanded as we have been?

In the age of terrorism, it is obvious that the enemy will seek to do damage operating within U.S. territory. That, of course, was the story of the 9/11 hijackers, 19 Muslim terrorists who took advantage of loose laws to practice flying accurately into U.S. skyscrapers.

But the movements of such folk are not of primary concern to the U.S. government, to judge from the record. O'Sullivan reports that the Transportation Department has launched several lawsuits against airlines because pilots had banned passengers they thought were security risks.

Asa Hutchinson, an official in the Department of Homeland Security, recently cut down a Border Patrol initiative to catch illegal aliens. The reason? It was catching too many illegal aliens.

We have the piquant problem of what to do with illegals. It approaches the problem of what to do with drinkers during Prohibition. You couldn't put them all in jail because there weren't enough jails. Illegals remain largely undisturbed, and the main reason for it isn't U.S. sentimentality toward aspirant Americans. It is the market contribution to the dilemma: There are jobs only illegals are willing to perform, e.g. serving as nannies for Bernard Kerik. Much of the menial and agricultural work done in the southwestern states is done by illegals.

The result of the combined forces — the need for cheap labor and the passion to avoid any appearance of ethnic or religious discrimination — is an open frontier. Yes, a few illegals are deported. These should get a parade, signaling such distinction as attaches to the infrequency of their apprehension. And perhaps a parade when they come through the next time, often through the same gap in the southwestern frontier.

A subsidiary but not uninteresting question is: Where do our deportees gather? What help is available to them to reassemble? Perhaps to return to Arizona in time for high school reunions?

It's a tough one politically, but Congress should bear down on the subject, intimately related to concerns for homeland security.

The economics of ILLEGAL immigration is entirely separate from immigration.

Maybe I misjudge the writings of New Democrat Third Way progressives at ndol.org (the Clinton Democrats) and maybe I misjudge the actions of conservative mainline Republican "free traders." But it seems to me that they have joined together along with the movers and shakers of countries around the world (their peers) and numerous international entities to implement a plan.

One part of the plan is the technology, wealth, and jobs transfers to developing nations and the other part is the labor transfer from developing nations to developed nations. I believe the latter is called economic diaspora.

Economic diaspora is a kind of worldwide affirmative action designed to "raise everyone's boat" with huge emotional and economic benefits ("cheap" labor) for the ruling class.

Think about it. Over the past thirty years, except for those adversely affected, did it bother any in America's ruling class that the traditional path of school to jobs was deliberately cut off from one targeted group of Americans? No. On the contrary.

We could not stop the ruling class. In fact the more someone complained the worse they made it. To wit, quotas and expanding the protected classes to include all except for white males.

Now the targeted class is all American workers. Congratulations American minorities! You've got equality!

Agreed.

Weatherman or Weather Underground Organization, is a "revolutionary organization of communist men and women" formed by members of the Students for a Democratic Society or SDS. They were originally called the Revolutionary Youth Movement. They advocated the overthrow of our government and capitalism. They carried out a campaign of bombings, jailbreaks, and riots in 1969-1976.

The group derived their name from Bob Dylan's song lyrics from "Subterranean Homesick Blues", which were, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows", I use to see that quote at the bottom of their periodical, New Left Notes, when I use to work at a periodical distribution company.

Their first event, in 1969, was the "Days of Rage" in Chicago. They blew up a statue dedicated to police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket Riot. They announced at a convention that they supported Charles Manson. The rally failed to draw as many participants (300) as they had hoped. They did lead a riot through Chicago's business district, smashing windows and cars. 6 were shot and 70 arrested. The conflict went on for a few days.

1970, after the shooting by police of Black Panther Fred Hampton, the group issued a Declaration of War against the United States government, changing its name to the "weather underground organization", adopting fake IDs, and pursuing covert activities only. These initially included plans for a bombing of a US military noncommissioned officers' dance at Fort Dix. But when three Underground members died in an accidental explosion while preparing the bomb in a Greenwich Village, New York City safe house, other cells re-evaluated their plans and decided to pursue only non-lethal projects.

This group released a number of manifestos and declarations, while conducting a series of bombings. These attacked the U.S. Capitol, The Pentagon, police and prison buildings, and the rebuilt Haymarket statue again, among other targets. The group took measures to avoid any loss of life as a result of these bombings, issuing warnings to evacuate the building ahead of time via phone. They also took a $25,000 payment from a drugs group called The Brotherhood of Eternal Love to break LSD advocate Timothy Leary out of prison, transporting him to Algeria. They remained largely successful at avoiding the police and the FBI.

In the mid-to-late 1970s, the group began dissolving, as many members turned themselves in to the police, and others moved onto other armed revolutionary groups. Very few served prison sentences, since the evidence gathered against them, by the FBI's COINTELPRO program, was inadmissable in court, due to the illegal methods used to obtain it.

Famous members of the Weather Underground include Kathy Boudin, Mark Rudd, Terry Robbins, David Gilbert, and the still-married couple Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers.

Many former Weathermen have re-integrated into society, without necessarily repudiating their original intent. Bill Ayers, now a Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois, said in a September 11, 2001 New York Times profile "I don't regret setting bombs. I believe we didn't do enough."

"What happened is that as the intelligence bill crystallized, a fear developed that it might be construed as xenophobic."

After 9/11 any dim light bulb should have more "fear" about illegals than being thought of as xenophobic. The naysayers here would have us think no great conservative (republican) minds are concerned about this invasion. Cal Thomas has remarked that something has to be done. Michelle Malkin, Victor Davis Hanson, and on and on.

" most of the GOP Senate"

Sen. James Inhofe is the only repub Senator who stood up against this. The rest folded.

INHOFE SAYS INTELLIGENCE REFORM BILL OVERLOOKS MAJOR ISSUES

Wednesday, December 8, 2004 WASHINGTON--U.S. Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.) today voted against the final passage of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (S.2845), which was eventually approved by the Senate (89-2).

"Today I joined the majority of our Oklahoma delegation in voting against the final passage of this bill," Inhofe said. "While there where many provisions I agreed with, unfortunately there were also glaring omissions that where impossible to overlook and caused me to oppose final passage.

"Stripped from the final version of this bill were five provisions that I felt were absolutely imperative to include in this reform package. Once you pass a bill, you lose your leverage to get those things that were controversial back in the bill. I do not have any doubt that the Speaker would bring this up at the beginning of the next Congress, but I have serious doubts that once passed in the House that those five areas that I have outlined would be corrected in the Senate. "Many people would be outraged to know that there is a 3.5 mile gap in our fence line with Mexico that exists solely to preserve the environment of five birds that are protected by the Endangered Species Act. The provision in the bill to patch this hole was removed because apparently repairing our border will disturb these five animals." Senator Inhofe also expressed dismay that the following provisions were removed from the original version of this legislation: * Electronic Confirmation by State DMVs of the Validity of Other States' Driver's Licenses and Driver Information.

* Anti-Trafficking Provision that Adds to the Existing Criminal Code Regarding the Sale of ID Counterfeiting Technology and Information. * A Requirement for Proof of Lawful Presence in the United States. * Temporary Driver's License requirements that State Visas and similar Documents Should Expire on the Same Date as Temporary Licenses. * Restriction on a State's Ability to Accept Foreign Documents like the Matricula for Driver's Licenses.

[ The Jedi Master weighs in. ]

Buckley talks around the problem like the politicians do...
Jedi Master, YES, since that is a fictional being...
Bill is fictionally conserned.. deathly afraid of saying kick them all out of the country.. even by a train with box cars to the border.. National Security is a joke because of it.. and Bill is too.. Buckley knows exactly WHAT should be done as anybody with an ounce of common sense..

Kill the payoff for coming here illegal.. but that would mean killing most of the drug trade too.. Its hard to make it in the U.S. without certain givens.. Driver license, a place to stay, a job.. Make that hard for legals and damn near impossible for illegals and the problem will almost go away.. YET some want to spend multiplyed billions to go to MARS.. fence the southern border with a decent fence as a symbol.. Send the U.N to Brussels and solve or at least help the illegal problem and America would be stronger and Bush might even be a good President.. Not, then NOT...

I blame him for part of this nonsense, he took the conservative flagship publication and handed the keys to a bunch of ideological hustlers like Frum and that doof Goldberg. Both of these conservatives (whatever it is they wish to conserve) hate Red state America and to them everybody west of the Hudson is a subhuman. Maybe his "dependable and docile" nanny stole his Rolex, and that is why he is now even considering immigration reform.

Just reading your post brings back the insanity of those years.

I didn't understand them then,and I don't now.

The "radical chic' crowd in NY drove me nuts.I detested Leonard Bernstein after all his kow-towing to The Panthers.

You can join the fight against the ACLU and their ilk by becoming involved with and supporting the following organizations:

Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) - http://www.alliancedefensefund.org

Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) - http://www.thomasmore.org

American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) - http://www.aclj.org

The Rutherford Institute - http://www.rutherford.org/

Stop the ACLU Coalition - http://www.stoptheaclu.org


Here are a few examples of how two of those organizations are fighting back:

ADF Contacts Over 3,600 School Districts Over Attempts To Censor Christmas

ADF: 700 lawyers ready to fight ACLU lawsuits

ADF: Pentagons' Warning About Boyscouts Is Absurd

Thomas More Law Center: Town of Palm Beach Pays $50,000 In Attorney Fees Apologizes To Women In Nativity Lawsuit


Additional information:

The ACLU must be destroyed: Joseph Farah supports Boy Scouts, urges Americans to fight back

Citizens mobilized to stop ACLU (seeks to consign group to 'ash heap of history')

ACLU fulfilling communist agenda

Revealing FACTS on the ACLU from its own writings

See how YOUR Senator or Representative ranks with the ACLU

Yes, those years were insane. But make no mistake that these people are still alive and well and heading up the same agendas.

As the problem escalates, and it will, Vigilance Committees will need to be formed. Self help will be the only option left.

>>Maybe I misjudge the writings of New Democrat Third Way progressives at ndol.org (the Clinton Democrats) and maybe I misjudge the actions of conservative mainline Republican "free traders." But it seems to me that they have joined together along with the movers and shakers of countries around the world (their peers) and numerous international entities to implement a plan.<<

"All truth goes through three stages.
First it is ridiculed.
Then it is violently opposed.
Finally, it is accepted as self-evident."
(Schopenhauer)

We are getting closer and closer to the self evident day. Damn it's been a long ride waiting for others to catch up.
