Council on Foreign Relations backs amnesty for illegals, opposes Arpaio-style raids
Phoenix Business Journal ^ | 7/9/09

Posted on 07/09/2009 5:22:09 PM PDT by FromLori

The uber-establishment Council on Foreign Relations said Wednesday it favors granting legal status to many of the roughly 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., creating a guest worker program for low-skilled foreign workers to come and work in the U.S and opposes local police getting to conduct immigration raids.

The CFR issued an immigration policy report Wednesday that looks to lift caps on foreign university students in the U.S. and allow skilled foreign graduates to get more work visas. The international policy group also wants to create legal paths to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S.

The CFR also said local police should not take lead roles in immigration enforcements and workplace raids. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas have been conducting immigration raids and prosecutions against businesses hiring illegal immigrants, as well as drop-houses used by smugglers trafficking illegal immigrants into Arizona from Mexico.

The CFR report does not specifically mention Arpaio but the Valley’s sheriff is the most notable local enforcer of immigration laws in the U.S.

The CFR’s recommendations on guest workers and amnesty mirror plans to be pushed in Congress this year by President Barack Obama. Arizona State university professor Raul H. Yzaguirre and former Florida governor Jeb Bush served on the CFR task force that wrote the recommendations.

The group also wants the U.S. to tweek or ease some post 9/11 security measures that have discouraged immigration and foreign tourism into the U.S. and want the U.S. government to develop new technologies to secure border areas, verify workers’ employment status and enforce immigration laws.

The New York-based CFR is a heavyweight international policy group whose members includes powerful politicians, CEOs and university presidents as well as multinational corporations, media firms and private equity firms.

The Council’s corporate members include Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Chevron, ExxonMobil Corp., Rothschild North America Inc., News Corp., General Electric, KBR Inc., Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Co., Soros Fund Management and Google Inc.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, former Arizona governor Bruce Babbitt, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Arizona State University President Michael Crow and Thunderbird School of Global Management president Angel Cabrera are Arizonans that are CFR members.

Other notable CFR members include:

• Former U.S. Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, James Baker and Madeline Albright.

• Former U.S. Treasury secretaries Henry Paulson and Robert Rubin.

• Financier George Soros and JP Morgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon.

• Former Federal Reserve Bank chairmen Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker.

• Former presidents George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and former vice president Dick Cheney.

• Media notables such as NBC’s Tom Brokaw, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, Newsweek International editor and CNN commentator Fareed Zakaria and New York Times publisher Arthur Ochs “Punch” Sulzberger.

It’s easy for the elites to wax poetic about kissing up to illegals, they don’t suffer the consequences of the illegals’ invasion.

However, whe a member of their family is raped and murdered or run over by a drunk illegal their tune will change.

The most polite response I can muster is that this is a domestic matter, not requiring such a fine degree of nuance as unelected, unwelcome CFR “members” may provide, They’re welcome to ply their very old trade elsewhere.

These elites should muster up enough integrity to just advocate full open borders now. That’s what they’re working toward incrementally, and open borders is the only thing the policies they advocate can lead to.

I'd love to see about 75 illegals move into the house next door to Bush 41's new home in Dallas. It looks like Jeb Bush could use the same wake up call as well.

People from Idaho did something similar when the animal-rights groups made a huge stink about them rounding up and killing jackrabbits.

What they did is the next year they loaded them all up into a cattle-truck style semi-trailer (modified to hold five or six levels) and then trucked them all down to CA where the guy leading the animal-rights group’s home was. Then they got the guy to come out and unloaded the truck right there on his [upscale] lawn by hitting the sides of the trailer a couple times and opening the back doors.

Needless to say, Idaho hasn’t gotten much flak for “mass-killings” of jackrabbits since.

Well, that would make them WRONG. The American people have spoken on this issue, loud and long. These pinhead elitists need to be reminded of that...

Burn up the phones, faxes and emails to ALL your elected representatives. Let them know that our borders need to be secured, illegals need to rounded up and sent packing, and those who facilitate their crimes need to be prosecuted.

It’s time to take back the country. Sheriff Joe has the right idea.

I’ve decided that the open border republicans really don’t believe illegals will ever vote for them. That’s just the line they feed us in hopes that enough of us will buy it to vote for them.

The reality is that they just plan of becoming ever more democrat and getting the liberal alien vote that way.

To think the best candidate the Republican Party could put forth as their leader was McAmnesty.

Next election we need to select a few issues such as cap and trade and amnesty.Then circulate via internet what a**hole members of congress voted for these bills so we can vote them out of office.

The CFR follows the Biderberger Plan to turn America into a Third World Nation. Obama gets his marching orders from the CFR. Bilderbergers, CFR, Trilaeralists, Bohemian Grove Satanists are plotting the destruction of the U.S. These quislings dictate foreign affairs and public policy solely to benefit the secret cabal of wealthy elitist whores.

Welcome to the New World Order !

There are now over 25 million illegal Hispanics living in the U.S. How many more from Russia, China and Eastern Europe ______ ? Nobody even knows. Our government is following a secret agenda to bankrupt the nation when government health care is enacted. The cost of treating at least 28,000,000 people who are here illegally is totally insane.

Kind of scary isn't it ______ ?

It makes NO sense, unless the intent is to do just that, turn the USA into an international thoroughfare. Which of course destroys the middle class and our sovereignty. Something very sinister is afoot in this mess.

And it’s VERY scary!

That's the part I have a "slight" problem with. Even in a New world order...this does not need to be, unless they want an unfettered dominance. This is not the spread of freedom, it's the vision of monsters.

The CFR has long been known as the shadow government so yes pretty much.

Many come right out and say they take their marching orders from...

(posted on the CFR website)..

http://www.cfr.org/publication/18515/remarks_by_national_security_adviser_jones_at_45th_munich_conference_on_security_policy.html

“Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through General Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today.”

Are you aware of the Council on Foreign Relations report titled “The International Institutions and Global Governance”?

The program was launched on May 1, 2008. The Obamageddon’s selection of National Security Advisor Jones was undoubtedly a selection of the CFR and as noted in a previous post we know who he takes his marching orders from!

http://www.cfr.org/content/thinktank/CFR_Global%20_Governance_%20Program.pdf

They did not launch this program with the help of The David Rockefeller Studies Program costing millions and millions of dollars with help from other Front Organizations like the Robina Foundation who gave $6 Million alone, one of the largest operating grants in the Foundations history to help out the United States that should be painfully clear.

The stated purpose of The International Institutions and Global Governance Program is to utilize the resources of the David Rockefeller Studies Program to assess existing Regional and Global Governance Mechanisms. Sound good to you? It says The Council On Foreign Relations has Launched An Initiative To Promote And IMPLEMENT A System of Effective WORLD Governance.

“The CFR has long been known as the shadow government so yes pretty much.”

I’ve always tried to steer clear of the so called conspiracy theories, CFR, Billdebugers (whatever it is!), etc. and deal with the problems that were obviously in our face.

I was given a chart almost 20 years ago that showed the members, MANY of our MSM so called ‘reporters’ included in CFR.

Well, looks like it’s pretty much ‘in our face’ doesn’t it?
I don’t know how we reach the masses to make them understand the dangers of this elitist group think when they control the media and have convinced the masses to be silent sheep out of political correctness.

Yes most who knew or were given information years ago did the same because the media and people in general acted like you were insane if you believed what you saw in black and white. Yet now prominent people are bellowing daily for a new world order and so I guess it is acceptable and they are not not insane when they do it??? Go figure.

I just saw that list again the other day I can’t recall where but it includes even brokaw. I think someone on here has it.

The CFR has long been known as the shadow government..

There is really nothing shadowy about it. They are all Ivy league grads. Mostly from Harvard and Yale, and yes they run most everything, right out in the open. And yes they have been indoctrinated to socialist totalitarianism for at least the last one hundred years. It's what keeps their elite status for them.

They exist on both sides of the isle to keep each other in their "rightful place" by keeping others in the dark without inside information, all with "the global Fed" leading the way acting as a conduit for similar operations in other countries. That's why they refuse to be audited.

The thing most people don't know is that most of them continue to get their seed funds from very few ultra rich sources...mainly from the average working taxpayer in small incremental amounts that add up. They squirrel the money away in foundations and organizations that they staff with their cronies.

What they can't con through capitalism and speculation, they steal through government and media manipulation, then divide the spoils.

Totalitarian Pirates who play like they are against one another for the camera and wait for the check to come in the mail.

It didn't start out this way, but this is what they have become.

The goal now is to spread the operation to as many shores as possible.

The crap about eerie conspiracies is just a veil. It's right in front of your face. It's really a rather simple and fundamental con.

They plagiarized it from the French.
