Branding Americans “racists” to further their agenda
Examiner ^ | Jan. 24 2010 | Dave Gibson

Posted on 01/24/2010 11:14:53 AM PST by AuntB

In 2007, former Bush nominee and columnist Linda Chavez published an article in which she accused Americans who stood in opposition to the Bush/McCain/Kennedy Amnesty Bill as racists. Alleging racism is the favorite tactic of the open borders crowd, as it is often used by those who find themselves on the wrong side of the argument.

Let us refresh our memory...In 2001, Linda Chavez was nominated by President Bush for the Secretary of Labor position. Her nomination fell apart when it was discovered that she had long employed an illegal alien as a housekeeper. In her ensuing unofficial role, she often acted as a cheerleader for Bush and his desire to turn the U.S. into Mexico.

Townhall.com published the article by Linda Chavez in which she attacked the American people, or at least the ones who value U.S. sovereignty. In her essay entitled "Latino Fear and Loathing," she repeatedly refered to those of us who oppose the amnesty legislation as "xenophobes."

Chavez said: "We need to quit pretending that the "No Amnesty" crowd is anything other than what it is: a tiny group of angry, frightened and prejudiced loudmouths backed by political opportunists who exploit them."

Apparently, Chavez believes that 80 percent of the American public is a tiny group!

However, she is right that we are angry and frightened. We are angry that many of our elected officials wish to reward millions of foreign nationals who have no respect for this nation’s laws. We are also frightened at the possibility of adding between 40-100 million mostly illiterate new immigrants to this country, over the next 20 years.

The only prejudice that most of us hold is that we prefer the American way of life as opposed to a Third World existence.

Chavez went on to wrongly compare this nation's ever-growing illegal alien population with the European immigrants who came to America’s shores in the early 1900's. She wrote: “What is said today of the Mexicans, Guatemalans, Salvadorans and others was once said of Germans, Swedes, the Irish, Italians, Poles, Jews, and others. The only difference is that in the past the xenophobes could speak freely, unconstrained by a veneer of political correctness."

Chavez simply trotted-out the same old tired argument that all immigrants are alike. While it is true that many immigrants face hardships and bigotry, that is where the comparison ends. The massive waves of European immigrants came here legally and most made assimilation a priority. The illegal aliens now entering this country from Mexico, and Central America are not observing our laws and make very little effort to even learn English.

While those European immigrants humbly waved American flags as they lined the streets of New York on July 4th, the illegal aliens defiantly wave Mexican flags on our streets as they demand their 'rights.' To compare the European immigrants of the early 20th century to the current lawless invaders, is an affront to the families of everyone who has legally immigrated to the United States. Here are a few facts that Linda Chavez left out of her article:

-In 2005, over 380,000 anchor babies were born in the U.S. No less than 97 percent of the hospital delivery costs were paid by the American public.

-According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal aliens receive $43.7 billion annually in Medicaid and Medicare benefits.

-42 percent of students in California public schools do not speak English.

-K-12 expenses for illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers $7.4 billion annually.

-Over half of Los Angeles area gang members are illegal aliens.

-29 percent (630,000) of this country's prison population is comprised of illegal aliens. This currently costs the American public $1.6 billion annually.

Another EXPENSIVE factoid that the author left out:

In 2009, the U.S. Justice Department filed nearly 92,000 immigration-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The record-breaking trend accounted for******* more than half of all new federal prosecutions in the country, ********according to Justice Department data maintained at Syracuse University.

El Economista (Mexico City) 1/21/10

Mexico’s education problems

During an appearance in front of the “First Permanent Committee” of Mexico’s Chamber of Deputies (House of Reps.,) the Secretary of Public Security, Genaro Garcia Luna, stated that city police officers in Mexico have an “educational deficit” and pointed out that 70.2% of them lack any education or, at best, have an elementary education. Sixty-one percent of city police are paid less than 4,000 pesos a month. [The Mexican peso exchange rate is currently around 13 to 1 U.S. dollar]

——————————

El Universal (Mexico City) 1/21/10

Yet more educational hurdles in Mexico

Juan Castro, head of Mexico’s National Institute for Adult Education, said that it will take at least 30 years to have 33.4 million Mexicans learn to read and write, as well as to have all finish elementary and secondary schooling. He added that the current administration’s goal is to reduce the number of uneducated Mexicans from 45.7% in 2006 to 40.9% in 2012.

(My note: In the early 1800's the Cherokee tribe learned to read and write their own language AND ENGLISH in less than a decade. They brought in their own teachers. They TRIED. I refuse to believe these Mexicans are not just as capable...there is simply NO will to learn)

El Sol de Mexico (Mexico City) 1/21/10

Demonstration in Mexico City demands U.S. immigration reform

On the first anniversary of Pres. Obama’s administration, some 200 persons crowded around the front of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City to demand from him a migratory reform that would legalize some 12 million undocumented persons who live in the United States. Elvira Revilla, a Mexican woman who in 2007 “entrenched herself” for a year in a church of the United States to avoid being deported, said, “A year has gone by, and nothing….;” some placards read “No justice, no peace.”

El Heraldo (Tegucigalpa, Honduras) 1/21/10

More Somalis caught

Four Somali males were found hidden in the sleeping compartment of a tractor trailer at a highway checkpoint in Honduras. The four Somalis, pictured below, were aiming to reach the United States. The Salvadoran truck driver was on his way north after dropping off cargo in Nicaragua. (The photograph below accompanied the article.) ——————————-

Cambio de Michoacan (Morelia, Michoacan) 1/21/10

Highway blockades: a way of life

(Yesterday, if you happened to be touring on a certain highway in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, you and your vehicle would suddenly have become one of a large number of others unable to proceed because of an unexpected, unauthorized, highway blockage. The reason?): Some people want to get rid of the Mayor of Tzintzuntzan, Michoacan, due to “irregularities,” so they blocked the area’s highway. The authorities have not responded. (In the process of gathering relevant news for preparation of the “M3 Report,” we find that blockage of highways is a frequent, common and widespread means of protest – whatever the cause – in many countries of Latin America.)

———————————-

Critica (Hermosillo, Sonora) 1/21/10

A delicate search

Mexican federal agents near Navojoa, Sonora, found that six women, traveling aboard two different passenger busses, were transporting a total of six kilos (13.2 lbs.) of heroin, concealed around their genitals. The women were headed to Nogales, Sonora.

———————————-

El Diario de Coahuila (Saltillo, Coahuila) 1/21/10

Poverty south of the border

“CEPAL”, the Economic Commission for Latin America, reported that last year the number of persons in extreme poverty in Mexico and Central America grew by 800,000. For Latin America as a whole, the report states, the number of poor reached 189 million.

———————————–

La Jornada (Mexico City) 1/21/10

Violent Tijuana

January of 2008 had been considered as the most violent in the region of Tijuana, Baja California; however, the number of homicides this month has doubled the previous record and now stands at 70. In a house that had been on fire, in Tijuana, firemen found the cadaver of a man who was wrapped in bed covers; his hands and feet were tied. Another man was shot out on the street elsewhere in town. Yet another was found outside a business establishment. Someone had cut off his head.

Linda Chavez has one goal, and one goal only, namely, to drive labor cost down as much as possible. She cares nothing about immigrants, law or truth.

I regret that I, at one time, believed she had something to offer.

Good article about Linda Chavez, cheerleader of the squatter support squad of the GOP. Her good buddy and open border advocate Newt Gingrich along with other GOP amnesty bearers wrote a letter to the WSJ a few years ago pushing Bush’s amnesty.

Conservatives Join Together to Support Immigration and Immigration Reform

Arlington, VA – The following “Conservative Statement of Principles on Immigration” appeared today in the Wall Street Journal. If you have any questions regarding the statement please contact Tamar Jacoby, Manhattan Institute, at (973) 744-6117 or Stuart Anderson, National Foundation for American Policy, at (703) 351-5042.

The Wall Street Journal

February 6, 2004

Welcome to America

Fifteen authors offer this “Conservative Statement of Principles on Immigration”:
[snips]

America is a nation of immigrants. Except for Native American Indians, everyone in this country came to America or is here due to the good fortune that a parent, grandparent, or other relation came before them. Keeping a door open to those with the “will and heart to get here” is vital to our economy, our culture, our role in the world, and our historic tradition as a land of freedom and opportunity.

Conservatives oppose illegal immigration. We believe there is a right way and a wrong way to immigrate to the U.S. However, as conservatives we believe that our laws must reflect reality and common sense, be fiscally responsible, and avoid the loss of innocent life. Our current immigration laws do not pass this test.

Between 1990 and 2000, the U.S. increased the number of Border Patrol Agents from 3,600 to 10,000. During that same period illegal immigration rose by 5.5 million. Moreover, over the past eight years, more than 2,000 men, women, and children have died attempting to cross into America and seek the opportunity to work and achieve a better life. The status quo is unacceptable and clinging to the status quo — or tougher versions of it — is neither conservative nor principled. It has become clear that the only viable approach to reform is combining enforcement with additional legal avenues for those who wish to work in our economy, while also addressing the situation of those already here in the U.S.

President Bush has proposed a new legal path to work in the U.S. through a temporary worker program that will match willing workers with willing employers. We applaud the president and believe his approach holds great promise to reduce illegal immigration and establish a humane, orderly, and economically sensible approach to migration that will aid homeland security and free up border-security assets to focus on genuine threats. The president has shown courage by calling on Congress to place reality over rhetoric and recognize that those already working here outside the law are unlikely to leave. Congress can fulfill its role by establishing sufficient increases in legal immigration and paths to permanent residence to enable more workers to stay, assimilate, and become part of America.

Immigrants are crucial to our competitiveness and future labor and economic growth, as well as our military strength. Our country’s welcoming attitude to immigrants will permit the U.S. to grow and prosper, as the populations of many other nations stagnate and decline.

“a tiny group of angry, frightened and prejudiced loudmouths backed by political opportunists who exploit them.”????? A “tiny group”?......how about the majority of Americans? I don’t view them as a tiny group! Mexicans know that nothing will be done about the border because the present Administration and the Democrats in the border states want the Mexican vote. I believe everyone knows that to close the border doesn’t take a rocket scientist. But....you can’t close the border until you start. Our borders have to be closed to illegals, that’s all there is to it.

LEGAL Immigration: YES. Welcome to America, and thank you for respecting our laws and sovereignty. Please learn our language, assimilate, and add to the diverse fabric and strength of our society and country.

ILLEGAL Immigration: NO. Go home and refer to LEGAL Immigration above.

Simple fact. They have no functioning government at this time which accounts for the crime and the lack of schooling. Theres no reason for that except for the fact that corruption is the norm and not the rarity. Haiti has the issues which is why the whole world had to come to their aid after the earthquake. Their government was unable to provide any assistance at all.
This is not racism but recognizing the dysfunctions in these countries institutions. I am all for people donating whatever it is they wish to any legitimate cause,anywhere in the world. I am 100% opposed to my government telling me that i must give to these people or that i must accept illegals into my country.
At the end of the day,our government has screwed up the entire issue and to absolve themselves of blame tell us they can’t do anything at all about it. When looking at the sums spent i dare say that it would be immensely cheaper to remove them rather than giving them of our hard earned countries wealth.
One last point. Anchor babies no more. We cannot afford to be the health care provider for whomever decides to plop themselves within our borders. If they,our government,is intent on containing the cost of health care this is the place to start. No free care for non citizens and watch how fast the bill goes down. Once passed,with no restrictions on who is able to receive care,the next step will be to legitimize the illegals.

The thing to do is to not even listen to these creeps and their BS accusations, or enable that a-hole Sharpton as the ultimate judge and jury of appropriate behavior. If something is going to endanger me, my loved ones, my home and property, or my country, then whatever it is is:

#1 my business, and:
#2 needs to be handled however I deem fit-if the perps themselves don’t like it—T.S.

Like Daniel Boone (or was it Davey Crockett) said “Make sure you’re right-then go ahead”

Followed by sending those here back across. Let them clean up their own country. Let them build it up. Coming here and using our institutions,be they medical or educational or what have you is nothing less than stealing. I know our glorious leaders would rather we didn’t focus on that but illegals are stealing our tax dollars and its no different than someone putting a gun in your face and taking your wallet.

Linda Chavez is generally a good conservative so I am puzzled about her position on immigration. I respect her opinion about amnesty although I respectfully disagree. I cannot understand labeling others who disagree as racist. Conservatives and others who oppose amnesty and open southern borders have strong reasons for opposition.

I agree with her assessment that immigrants today are not fundamentally different than immigrants of previous generations. However, the legal and political environment today is much different influencing the behavior of immigrants. Thus, immigrants today expect or are informed that they should demand welfare. In addition, the country does not need a large influx of people today. Most desirable locations are already heavily populated. Although the country is overall sparsely populated, most sparsely populated areas cannot be populated or are undesirable.

“a good conservative so I am puzzled about her position on immigration.”

Because she has the same last name and skin color as many of the Mexican citizens who she is fighting for. Ethnicity is more important to her, than being an American or conservative. She is willing to cheat us, and other nationalities, for the benefit of foreigners that remind her of her roots.

Next question,,

Dear Wiggen, take a step back and look at this. who benefits the most from illegals? of course the business community (big and small business). Business is in bed with the pols, business funds the election and reelection campaigns. thats why the borders will never be closed. The U.S. has to compete in the global market against countrys like china, japan, Taiwan, pacific rim countries and south America ect. and these countries pay pennies on the dollar for wages. in china the majority of people live on 20 to 40 dollars a month. How long can America compete on the global market and pay us middle class wages? That is why the borders are still open. Dont get me wrong, i want the borders closed and find a way for America to continue to pay the wages that they do, and i believe we can find a way.......................

Immigrants today are different in that too many do not love the US & do not care to assimilate to our culture including most basic of all, English language. It was no piece of cake to emigrate here, even in the '50s-'60s. You needed domumentation, some knowledge of American ways & history, willingness to assimilate (again, English), & appreciation for the country you were applying to. At times--during the Cold War--it was even more involved.

Most all people who came here were very grateful & proud to be new citizens. Now they are contemptuous & spit on our flag, form groups like La Raza, gangs, barrios. And who else besides Mexicans come over the border? Why, people from the ME with no good intentions, South & Central Americans, who could be from anywhere.

The decent Mexicans who come here are hard workers and they are being exploited by our government. If McCain thinks white people could pick lettuce even for his crazy $50 hr, he is full of it--Anglos cannot do this kind of work at least for very long, not these days.

This is not to say that immigrants many years ago were not exploited by big business interests. and we should not repeat that, either.

B.S. I suggest you take a look at how an awful lot of Anglos made their living on farms as recently as the 1970s. Ever seen a Maine potato farm? Poor white folk always have done a fine job of harvesting those spuds.

We've become too soft & spoiled since the '70s, don't you think? If I was younger and had to dig taters, I would. Lettuce is different--quickly perishable--the growers need people who work fast & have endurance. Still, white people could do it if they had to--but they don't with all the necessities of life they get from Uncle Sam. They laugh when (or if) anyone suggest farm work. Farm subsidies enter the picture here, too. I've been told by dairy farmers they would gladly abandon subsidies, but BigAg controls the situation & perpetuates subsidies.

But the southern invasion was unnecessary from the start and it was fueled by politicians. Long ago we had a good program--Braceros--out here but somewhere along the way it was abandoned.

I feel that way too! But my point is—when the Open Border crowd tries to defend this invasion, they use the worn-out argument that people just want to come here to work—it’s now only a small percentage because the handouts/gov’t support cancel any need to work. The exploitation of people who want to work is the real reason —cheap labor for the illegals who refuse handouts. And these people are taking Americans’ jobs. Not just farm labor—go by construction sites & observe. I’ve heard contractors call radio shows and say they have to hire cheap laborer(or skilled) because they would go broke. Nonsense. And this was a few years ago in the height of the building boom-real estate boom. There are so many thngs wrong with this invasion and it must not continue or we go the way of the Balkans.

How many immigrants work for Chavez, cooking, cleaning, doing her dirty laundry, yard work, car washing, yadayada? She is full of it. There is no room for all these people! And Americans lose jobs because of this invasion?

Here is a question: Pres. Bush made quite a few trips to visit Mexico's Presidente, plus meetings at the Texas ranch. Mucho dinero was given freely, one figure I recall amounted to $50 ml. Where did it go? Who were the recipients, poor Mexicans? Improvements in living conditions, housing, urban projects, schools, medicine?

Why didn't Jorge instead try to work out a plan where Mexico could be helped to improve their country, other than a few factories whose employees had to live in improvised shelters of cardboard because they were paid unconcionable wages? Next time a GB apologist claims 'he kept us safe for 7 years' I will remind them of this ongoing invasion.

Didn't we learn in school about Woodrow Wilson's slogan in l916--'He kept us out of war'. And then what happened in 1917?

Living on welfare is a major improvement in the standard of living for the majority of the immigrants from 3rd world countries that are over running America.

Look at the societies the current immigrants are coming from because when here in sufficient number, that is what America is going to look like. Like Mexico, any country in Africa. Haiti, etc. For a preview look at Detroit.

Thanks for the ping as I much admire Linda Chavez. An intelligent lady who also conducts herself as one.
It's easily understood why Ronald Reagan liked her so much.

Hasta luego.

if we gave away less,taxes would be less and we could afford at least some differential in wages from the companies view and less taxes means more spending power from the workers view.

Dear Wiggen, Americas only chance for survival is to be able to produce new and innovative products that only we can manufacture. China and Taiwan can imitate anything we make. I also think that America should also stop giving foreign aid to any country that asks. We as a conutry have a right to say no, especially to countries that want to see our demise. Americia gives billions of dollars to countries that hate us.Can you imagine what would happen if America said no to all these countries?? We could save a fortune and use it to help Americans. America must find a way to build its manufacturing base. also America must pull back from this insane idea of socilalism, it does not work and the average American must be made to understand this....

Dear Wiggens, i am not a isolationist either. but we must choose our fights and our money (overseas aid) give aways better. Lets take care of home first then help others, as the saying goes help your self so you can help others. I think the goal of the socialist left is to turn the U.S. into a european socialist country and just an other country in the list of U.N. countrys (after they have raped and sucked all the resuources from the U.S.)in other words, one world goverment...............
