Former San Antonio mayor Cisneros speaks out about border security issue
http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories/060406/sta_060406125.shtml ^ | Sunday, June 4, 2006 | Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Former San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros says the United States has the right to secure and seal its borders, but he warned it should be done with "a sense of humanity and human rights."

Cisneros, the former U.S. housing secretary under Democratic President Bill Clinton, made an impassioned speech on the subject Friday during the Bilateral Immigration Forum.

"I believe in immigration," he said. "I have used religious words in this regard. It is the salvation of the American future."

Cisneros cited personal reasons behind his stance. His grandfather came to Texas from Mexico to escape persecution during the 1910-17 Mexican Revolution.

Cisneros said President Bush frames the immigration issue correctly by presenting three reforms: improved border security; a channel for legal workers to be hired in the United States; and a path to earned residency and citizenship for existing and new illegal immigration.

"Mexico is pushing out its people by its inability to provide jobs. People will come before they starve. They will come before their families starve. The push is immense, but the pull is just as strong - the job opportunities in the United States," he said.

The United States has a right to define its borders and to define who comes in and has the right to seal the borders if it chooses, Cisneros said.

"But it should do so with a sense of humanity and human rights. Securing the border should not end in the death of people. They are not criminals. They are responding to the push-and-pull realities. There should be some reasonableness because people's lives are in danger," he said.

Cisneros warned that sending National Guard troops to support the Border Patrol may end up being a tragic mistake because the National Guard is not trained to guard the border.

"Just sending the National Guard without specific training for that purpose is dangerous. Border security needs to be proper and effective and not waste people's lives on either side," he told the forum.

On Friday, Republican Gov. Rick Perry signed an agreement authorizing the deployment of National Guard Troops to the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a plan Bush recently announced to support Border Patrol agents.

Cisneros said he does not sense that there is urgency in Mexico to create economic growth.

"Somewhere in Mexico's consciousness, there must be some sense of inadequacy. A country that cannot provide jobs for its citizens fails," he said.

Cisneros also said he has "zero patience" for the argument that immigration will change the United States culturally.

"We must assimilate immigrants into the American way," he said. "This is something we do together."

We are the most compassionate nation in the world. That is obvious by just looking at the foreign aid sent to every god-forsaken hellhole for any reason out of OUR tax money.
I am no longer compassionate. I believe charity begins at home and it is about time some of the American taxpayers saw some compassion from our elected politicians.
Let the illegal aliens, regardless of which country they are from, go back and change their countries for the better, not change mine for the worse.

The charge was lying to the FBI and filing false IRS forms. He was paying a mistress hush money, but failed to report that when he was being employed by the Clinton administration...not that that little flaw would have made any difference to der Schlichmeister.

Notice how they always manage to slip the word "immigration" into the debate about ILLEGAL aliens sneaking into our country. Somebody needs to tell the leftists, and the President, that 'immigrant' is to illegal alien what 'money' is to counterfiet currency. One is legal and good, the other is illegal and bad. Simple concept, even for liberals.

Here are some sources on Cisneros.

His bio in left-leaning Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_G._Cisneros

http://archives.cnn.com/2001/ALLPOLITICS/stories/01/20/clinton.pardon/index.html

He paid his mistress over a quarter of a million, under the table. He cheated the IRS on the amount. He was never charged for that before he got the blanket parton from Clinton:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/cisneros/stories/cis052095.htm

AJ Strata had some interesting commentary at the time. He ascribed the whole thing to the immaturity, the desire to play playboy, which was so important to Clinton and to Cisneros:

http://strata-sphere.com/blog/index.php/archives/1202

By the way, Cisneros is not only the sort of man that needs to write a check to get a date, he's also the sort of man that when his having done that gets the girl in trouble, cavalierly lets HER go off to jail whil HE wriggles out.

If he's the sort of citizen Mexicans' kids become, there ought to be a bounty on him. Fortunately, he is a single individual and not typical of his race -- most of them are far finer human beings.

d.o.l.

I fully agree. It is the MOST humane thing to keep these people out in the first place so they don't "suffer" at the hands of the cruel racists who run this country.

Second generation American still has not assimilated, doesn't know squat what he's talking about.

There ARE jobs in Mexico, Henry, but there is also great political repression and unrest as you well know.

The politics of Mexico are as much or more of a propellant to migrate as economics.

Mr. Cisneros, are you yourself out there on the border, in the desert and the scrub brush, looking for stranded migrants to aid? I don't think so. However, ironically, the Minutemen and the USBP are and they do provide humanitarian aid.

So, cram your high sounding talk of "humanity"; cuz you're just another yapping politician.

From the article---notice "plea agreement" - typical DC Coverup.

"The Cisneros plea agreement was negotiated during the past week and approved on the day that Cisneros was to begin standing trial on 18 felony charges in federal court."

Notice 18 felony charges!

Cisneros deserves credit for calling Mexico a failed country.Their are some politicians who do not even have the guts to speak this truth.Mexico is filled with intelligent and cultured people. If we could weed out the crooks and scumbags, I'd say take them all. On the other hand , I'm livid with the political class of Mexico who took what should be a paradise and turned it into a hell hole through greed and corruption. It seems ruining Mexico was not enough for them ,they now want to get heir filthy hands on the southwest.

So how are Americans supposed to react as the invaders rip us off left and right----with a sense of humanity?

Idiot Cisneros is confusing compassion with tolerance of criminality.

Besides the invaders roaming the streets with Mehico flags say they intend to takeover the US government with the vote (the illegal vote, of course) and violence, if necessary.

The following briefly explains why illegals creep across the desert and perpetuate the lie about taking so-called "low-pay jobs Americans won't do."

The US taxpayer is subsidizing aliens' every need 24/7, morn til night: Using multiple phony SS #'s, forged documents, and multiple IDs the invaders collect multiple $4500-$5400 EICs from the IRS by declaring several names/jobs - just by going $1 over the income limit. They also line up for EINs, ITINs, Child Tax Credit, Additional Child Tax Credit, welfare and food stamps.

US Taxpayers are subsidizing invaders' daily food intake, housing, reduced mortgages, free medical care, free education, reduced in-state tuition and out of state tuition. We also foot the legal bills when they start suing if we don't provide these goodies pronto......etc., etc, ad infinitum, ad nauseaum.

The 423 pp monstrosity Senate bill (secretly written in El Presidente Vicente Fox's hacienda assisted by reconquista groups) provides that invaders will be paid a prevailing wage, Earned Income Tax credits, medical benefits; housing benefits; WIC; anchor baby citizenship; legal representation and amnesty from back taxes owed.

The Senate atrocity does not meet Constitutional muster b/c Vicente, and the reconquistas, could care less about the US Constitution. They want only to get their greedy hands on the US treasury and to take over the US government with the vote, or by violence, if necessary (their own words and signage at the recent protests).

All of this explains why aliens will do anything, pay anything, endure anything, to sneak over the border to get so-called "low-paying jobs" They have extortion dancing in their criminal heads......plans to rip-off US taxpayers every which way they can.

.....and billions of it goes back to Mexico where El Presidente Vicente gets a nice chunk of it---and so do the federales in Central and South American banana republics who help their compadres cross the border.

.....it should be done with "a sense of humanity and human rights."......Cisneros cited personal reasons behind his stance. His grandfather came to Texas from Mexico to escape persecution during the 1910-17 Mexican Revolution.

This guy epitomizes the abomination of liberal thinking----they justify just about any travesty as long as they're "feeling-good" about being "tolerant and compassionate."

The US government, and all its trappings, has been turned into a huge psychotherapy agency designed to mobolize government power---and tax assets---to subsidize and shore-up the self-esteem problems of various hyphenated groups.

Anyone with a chip on their shoulder can claim victimization, persecution, discrmination, and is encouraged to apply for sanctuary on our shores which entitles then to numerous tax-subsidized financial benefits, head-of-the-line citizenship, and various other preference-based gov't programs.....all at our expense.

It's a big con game. To some of these con artists a day without "victimization" is like a day without sunshine.

Thank you for your reply.

Your tag line says it all.

"The US Constitution is intended to protect the people from the government"

Unfortunately, our leaders, whom we have untrusted with power -- who swore to "preserve and protect the Constitution" -- have betrayed their Country.

Our leaders serve not "The People"(as embodied in the constitution) but rather the Royal's, the elite -- whom serve only themselves.

Now I understand that "The people" is a somewhat nebulous term, but even so, they (the leaders referred to above) should at the least try to do what's best for the Country as a whole; whilst keeping in mind the parameter's of the Constitution, they have -- at least putatively -- sworn to uphold.

One can only conclude(as I have said in other posts)that either:
(1) They are simply unfit for office(incompetent to be kind).
(2) They are corrupt.
(3) They are traitors.

More and more the evidence points to conclusions two or three.

We see here in the Senate immigration bill what happens when an arrogant gov't assumes too much power.

It has gone completely unnoticed that the Constitution is intended to protect the people from the government. The gov't acts like it is the reverse equation.

The citizenry does not exist to serve the government.

The Founders intended to protect the people's rights by limiting the powers of government. Any action which is intended to protect the people's interests from an errant government---as in the immigration dilemma---is in keeping with Constitutional imperatives, and is to be applauded.

That the Constitution is intended to protect the people from the government goes unnoticed..........and untaught. Unfortunately, liberal thought police have indoctrinated generations with Marxist/Socialist agit-prop so that many see the gov't as the solution to problems, and work to grant gov't more and more power over the lives of the citizenry.

Clearly, "big brother" government wants to do everything but the very things The constitution clearly empowers it to do, namely, protect us from invasion.

Article IV, Section 4, Paragraph 1: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against INVASION; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestics Violence.(emphases Mine)

Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 15: The Congress shall have the Power (to) provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress INSURRECTIONS and repel INVASIONS(emphases Mine)

You will notice that I have also emphasized the word INSURRECTION(S): The act or an instance of open revolt against civil authority or a constituted government.

Therefore, those that are abetting the invasion of our "constituted government", subverting the laws of the land, may also be looked upon as INSURRECTIONISTS.
