National Guard role on border clarified

Mexico asks National Guard to combat crime and not immigrants
Mexicos Secretary of Foreign Relations (SRE) requested that the 1,200 US National Guard soldiers sent to the Mexican border by President Obama be used to pursue organized criminals and not immigrants. Mexico is confident that the personnel of the National Guard will strengthen the operations to combat transnational organized crime that exists on both sides of the border and ( ) not undertake activities directly connected to the application of migratory laws, said Secretary Patricia Espinosa Cantellano in a communique. In the message, she reiterated that the Mexican government respects the sovereign decisions of the US, but demanded that this decision of Obamas result in channeling additional resources to reinforce the prevention of illegal traffic of arms and cash money to Mexico.
In a related story, Joel Hernandez, judicial adviser for the SRE explained that the Mexican government has no recourse in the International Court to legally stop Arizonas new law, SB 1070, for lack of jurisdictional grounds to challenge a state law. Mexico can only assist in US law suits as friend of the court.

Illegal entrants can rest easy
Washington, D.C. The US National Guard sent to reinforce the border will seek to stop illegal traffic and not be used to enforce immigration law, the US State Department affirmed today. The Mexican government had requested that the soldiers not be used against immigrants. What the president announced today is totally consistent with our efforts to do our part in counteracting violence and to halt the flow of dangerous people and property: arms and drugs, said the State Departments spokesman, Philip Crowley. It doesnt have to do with immigration. It doesnt have to do with the flow of certain things that come to this side of the border, Crowley said,
El Heraldo (Tegucigalpa, Honduras) 5/26/10
Arizonas neo-Nazi Law The Council of Ministers [read: Cabinet ] announced yesterday that Honduras will file a lawsuit against the law that criminalizes illegal immigration in Arizona. Alden Rivera, Vice-Minister of Foreign Relations [read: Deputy Secretary of State ] said that a team of lawyers will be sent to carry out the legal procedures so that the legislation may be nullified. The SB1070, or neo-Nazi law to its critics, permits state agents to ask for documents from persons who present reasonable doubt of being undocumented immigrants
[The article had one reply from a reader, as follows: ] What do you mean, neo-Nazi Law? Quit fomenting hatred, you bunch of ignoramuses, so-called journalists. The laws of the countries have to be respected, and one ought to think that they do it for a good reason, instead of trying to stick it in peoples heads that it is pure discrimination. On the contrary, you, who have influence on the race, should advise us to behave well in the USA because here they label us as noisy, disorderly, (and) that we fill up the jails, are on welfare, that our teenagers leave school to get pregnant, etc. The Gringos flee from the Latino barrios, because we are a problem. Itd be better for you to tell the people to go to school to learn English, its free, instead of passing the time watching soap operas and drinking Bud Weiser. (sic)
Cuarto Poder (Tuxtla, Chiapas) 5/26/10
Mexican senator hopes for integral migratory reform Manuel Velasco, aka Blondie, a Mexican senator from the state of Chiapas, said that no wall, be it of concrete, of racist laws, or of military personnel, will be the final solution that Mexico and the United States seek to bring to a halt shared problems such as the illegal traffic of firearms nor to normalize the interchange of manpower. He warned that the presence of U.S. military could provoke grave violations of the human rights of migrants who cross to the American Union, adding that the final solution is for the United States to bring about an integral migratory reform that would do justice to millions of undocumented workers.

I love that man!!!

Mexican Citizen Sentenced To Federal Prison For Assaulting Border Patrol Officer
Friday, 28 May 2010
Phoenix, Arizona - Luis Alfredo Lopez-Sanchez, 38, of Sinaloa, Mexico, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Susan R. Bolton to 48 months in prison. Lopez-Sanchez previously pleaded guilty to the crime of Assault on a Federal Officer.
Federal agents put their lives on the line every day to protect our nations borders by patrolling rough, often hostile terrain, and give assistance to those in distress, said U.S. Attorney Dennis K. Burke. Assaulting a federal officer will not be tolerated and as Mr. Lopez-Sanchezs sentence shows, it will result in prison time.
On Aug. 3, 2009, Lopez-Sanchez illegally crossed into U.S. from Mexico. Four days later, a Border Patrol helicopter on patrol duty near Red Rock, Ariz., spotted Lopez-Sanchez and landed in order to offer medical assistance. As one of the helicopters occupants began to approach, Lopez-Sanchez ran to his nearby pickup truck, started the engine, and accelerated toward the agent. The agent fired three gunshots in an attempt to divert the vehicles path, then fell to the side at the last moment, sustaining minor injuries. As Lopez-Sanchez sped away, the helicopter gave chase. Lopez-Sanchez eventually drove through a fence, jumped out of his truck, fled on foot, and dove into the Santa Cruz River in an effort to elude capture. When Lopez-Sanchez was found, he resisted arrest and had to be subdued with pepper spray.[snip]
Hell yeah, Zo’s back! Missed this dude.

Illegal Aliens, Nonimmigrants Rip Off IRS by $6 Billion a Year
By David North, May 22, 2010
My headline, above, should have been used as the title of the Government Accountability Office’s recent tax compliance report. I calculate, based on the GAO report, that those two groups are routinely depriving the U.S. Treasury of an estimated $6 billion a year in income taxes.
GAO, as usual, wrote the report in its trademark, color-me-gray prose, but, unusually, missed a gold mine of government statistics that would have shown the dramatic size of the problem.
For the record, the report, published last month, carried the title: “IRS May Be Able to Improve Compliance for Nonresident Aliens and Updating Requirements Could Reduce Their Compliance Burden,” report number GAO-10-429.
The report, despite its shortcomings, has two very useful elements. First, it points out that there are two basic income tax forms, the 1040 that most of us have used for years, and the 1040NR (for nonresident) that is supposed to be used by most nonimmigrants and all illegal aliens during their first five years in the country. The 1040NR has fewer opportunities for deductions and thus it taxes the same income more heavily than the 1040. (I have had a lot of exposure to both forms in recent years, as I have provided a volunteer income tax-counseling service to graduate students at the University of Maryland, including many F-1 and J-1 students.)
The GAO document’s second virtue is that it reports that 634,000 1040NRs were filed in the 2007 tax year, with a total tax liability of $2.5 billion. I pay attention to this field and had not seen either figure in the past.
While the report worries that many aliens may have filed the wrong form, it does not quantify the extent of mistaken (or non-) filing and thus understates the size of the problem.
It does so by billions of dollars a year, billions that would help close the income-outgo gap in our seriously over-stretched budget.
The data that GAO overlooks can be found in, or estimated from, the publications of the DHS Office of Immigration Statistics.
I know that I am heading into eyes-glaze-over territory, but let me repeat the 2007 IRS total of 1040NR filers it is 634,000. That’s a key number.
It should be compared with, as GAO does not, the estimated total number of aliens who should be filing the 1040NR.
The bottom line, as I outline subsequently, is that there are probably more than 5,000,000 aliens who should be filing the 1040NR. An unknown number are not filing at all, and another large number are mistakenly (or deliberately) filing the 1040 form, and collecting deductions and tax breaks to which they are not entitled.
The 5,000,000 potential filers vs. the actual 634,000 filers is the elephant-in-the-room that the GAO did not discuss in its report. GAO also did not mention illegal immigration in the entire report, which is also odd. (I used the find mechanism on the computer to check the whole document for the words “illegal,” “unauthorized,” and “undocumented” and it found none, though it found plenty of references to “alien” and “aliens.”)
Let’s look at some more numbers: 5,000,000 - 634,000 = 4,366,000 should-be filers. Let’s round that down to 4 million (being simultaneously conservative and lazy), and assume that half filed 1040s, and half filed nothing.
Let’s also assume that the combined group of nonimmigrants and illegals that did file 1040s (and not 1040NRs) saved about $1,000 each by doing so. (That is about the difference in taxes, between 1040 and 1040NR, on incomes of about $25,000). Let’s further assume that the people who did not file at all, probably a less prosperous group than the 1040 filers, saved $2000 each. This second group paid no federal taxes at all. (I should point out that these are very conservative estimates of the tax liability of these two groups.)
The two million who filed the 1040 mistakenly, thus robbed the Treasury of $2 billion a year, and the non-filers deprived the Treasury of about $4 billion, or a total estimated shortfall of $6 billion a year. I think the GAO had an obligation to its readers (and its bosses in Congress) to have made an estimate along these lines.
The rough estimate of five million should-be 1040NR filers is based on two sets of numbers reported by the Office of Immigration Statistics, one set covering illegal aliens and the other working nonimmigrants.
According to the Office’s “Estimate of the Unauthorized Immigrant Population Residing in the United States: January 2009” there were 11.6 million such persons in January 2008. Using the Tables 1 and 5 of that report, which deal with their length of stay and their ages, I calculate that there were 1.3 million men 18-54 in the group here for less than five years, and just under a million women in the same situation. Let’s assume that 90 percent of these men and 50 percent of these women are both in the work force and making at least $3,650 a year, the amount requiring (all else being equal) the filing of a 1040NR. That’s a group of 1,520,000, which, to be conservative, we will round down to 1.4 million.
The other 3.6 million is my estimate of legal nonimmigrants here for less than five years and working on a variety of visas that permit employment. This is based on the admission figures for the principals in these classes (thus excluding dependents), and including only some of the F-1 foreign students. There are about 1.8 million admissions of these working nonimmigrants every year.
An admission is a government-recognized entrance to the country; it is not a count of people. One nonimmigrant could go through a port of entry once in a decade, and another could do so several times a year. The Office of Immigration Statistics includes these admissions data in the 2008 “Yearbook of Immigration Statistics.”
My heroic assumption is that if you double the number of admissions you get the working nonimmigrant population here for less than five years; to the best of my knowledge no one has worked out a formula to convert admissions data to population data. Thus, the 1.8 million admissions number leads to the 3.6 million population estimate.
Whether my population estimates are off by 50 percent in either direction or right on the mark, it is clear that there are millions of nonimmigrants who should be filing 1040NRs and who are not, and that is costing to the U.S. government billions of dollars each year.
The GAO report not only missed the drama of the missing billions, it did not even consider a good way to correct most of the problem. The Department of Homeland Security has the names, arrival dates, A-numbers, and probably some Social Security numbers on millions of nonimmigrants. It could send that information, as corporations send dividend payment data, to the Internal Revenue Service and then IRS would not only know that there are these millions of nonimmigrant workers in the country, it would know which ones should file a 1040 and which ones a 1040NR.
Unfortunately, no one has a similar, comprehensive centralized data set for the illegal aliens working in the country.
Fortunately, however, CIS has at the printer a Backgrounder dealing with the broader subject of raising billions more in revenue for the federal government from the migration process. Though the document was written before we learned of the low number of 1040NRs filed, it deals with a variety of innovative techniques the government could use to close existing fiscal loopholes related to international immigration.
The document is called “Charging More for Immigration.” Watch for it.
I'm all for justice too, send every one of them home, at their expense. IF they can't pay for the transportation, bill the Mexican government.
If an employer hires an illegal, fine them and imprison them for repeat violations. Make it a felony.
I love the "I can't go BACK to Africa because I've never been there" line. ROTFL! That's some good stuff. I don't think we'll ever see ZO invited to the White House for a "beer summit". He'd eat Barry's lunch.
One thing he needs to point out is that if all the illegals were to vote for Republicans, the Democrats would be working to kick them out. Makes sense to me!
And he really should run for something.
That man is smart. He has a broad base of knowledge and must be self educated - it’s not taught in school anymore.
“That man is smart. He has a broad base of knowledge and must be self educated - its not taught in school anymore.”
Agreed! Don’t miss this, another good one.
Listen Up! Great New Tune!
Flush the John! McCains Got to Go!
Just a reminder.
Today, May 28th, marks the 86th anniversary of the United States Border Patrol. It was originally started in 1924 to combat the illegal entry of aliens, contraband, and the flow of illicit liquor from Mexico and Canada into the United States. The El Paso Border Patrol Sector began operations on July 1, 1924 as the first uniformed division of the Immigration Bureau.
Ha! That was great. Poor old Keating, he was just 20-years before his time.
Send it to all your friends in AZ, donna!
We can’t let McCain back in there.
