llegals Visit Capitol Hill, Demand Amnesty Through Executive Orders (Included "Queer Organizer")
CNS News ^ | May 9, 2014 | Penny Starr

Posted on 05/10/2014 12:14:22 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Six people who are in the United States illegally joined an immigration attorney (Skype image on the wall) to discuss the recommendations made by the group #Not1More that would provide amnesty to millions.

To mark May Day last week, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) invited people who are in the country illegally to Capitol Hill where they released a list of executive orders they believe President Barack Obama should put in place, including stopping all deportations and bringing back deportees who have family here.

At the event, held in the Canon Office Building, seven people who are part of a “Blue Ribbon Commission” – six illegal aliens and an immigration attorney – that released a list of 14 things Obama could do (according to legal scholars they consulted with) to provide amnesty to millions without congressional approval.

“We insist that the timing [of the executive orders] be immediate and the scope be as broad and bold as possible,” a summary of the commission’s findings states.

The 14 recommended executive orders include:

• End all deportations and “Expand use of humanitarian parole to endure that people previously deported can return to the U.S.”

• Expand Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – Obama’s executive order that puts on hold the deportation of individuals who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents as children - to “as many people as possible”;

• End the successful “Secure Communities” program that is now in all 50 states and provides a partnership between local and federal law enforcement personnel to enforce immigration laws;

• “Drastically curtail the use of detention” for illegal aliens.

Angel Hernandez-Gomez was one of a large group of illegal aliens who were on Capitol Hill on May 1, 2014 for the release of a list of recommended executive orders that they said President Barack Obama should be in place.

The group, dubbed #Not1More, included Angel Hernandez-Gomez “a young undocumented and queer organizer from Durham, N.C.,” who is “committed to defending his family, and all women, trans people, sex workers and other people of color from the fear of deportation,” according to his biography distributed at the event.

Maricela Munoz has been in the country illegally for 12 but now faces deportation after driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an accident.

“I want to ask President Obama and also the rest of the Congress both and elected officials to be able to also touch their heart, their humanity,” Munoz said through a translator. “To think about, when they think about our cases and deliberate our futures and our destinies that they think about with a different level of humbleness and acknowledgment of the suffering and the sacrifices that our people have made to just be here.”

Maricela Munoz, who has lived in Georgia illegally for 12 years, fought back tears as she told the story of how she was facing deportation after driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an automobile accident.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, told CNSNews.com that the list of demands is essentially putting an end to any enforcement of immigration law in the United States.

“This group is calling for an end to immigration enforcement and the nullification of immigration laws -- literally open borders, and not one more deportation,” Vaughan said.

Vaughan said the group is “asking that nearly all illegal immigrants should be given legal status by executive action, presumably with a work permit and access to social welfare services, as was given to 500,000 already” through DACA.

The group has requested a meeting with Obama to discuss their findings, the #Not1More website states.

Let’s see if Obama actually believes that the USA is a country in the usual sense of the word.

These lawless aholes...breaking into our country with the blessing of a lawless enemy of the people “pResident”, and they want open borders. How grateful I am that I lived in this country at one time when laws were obeyed, as I recall how my grandparents emigrated to this country in 1897 and 1899. They made me proud. These 21st century immigration thieves and this socialist/communist/Marxist country we now live in makes me sad and very angry. And I won't hold back my contempt for each and every one of them. I pray the pendulum swings the other way eventually, and this country will return to the days when you were proud to be an American.

“Trans people”?

The woman is textbook example. Willfully obstinate (check out the facial expression), 12 years an illegal in this country, refused to learn English, criminal activity, acts as if the world should be hers on a silver platter.

So here’s the real goal of immigration reform- open borders and access to welfare. The system will collapse with that anarchy. Ofcourse millions of poor people on welfare, potential democrat voters.

Illegals "demanding" Executive Orders so they can cash in? More proof they would turn America into a Third World---where tyranny rules w/ an iron hand by tin pot dictators. These people screwed up their own homelands now they want to screwup ours.

If they can't fit into America as it is---then they should get out.

==============================================

The Senate amnesty bill is dangerously flawed, and its glaring omissions WRT protecting US ntl security, cannot ever serve as the basis for useful legislation.

By legalizing illegal aliens w/out shoring up law enforcement, we hand an engraved invitation to global Third Worlders----all of 'em salivating to ride the US gravy train.....each seperatist group conniving to achieve its hidden agenda.

Amnesty recklessly opens the door wide for illiterate, low-skilled aliens, born and bred in savage cultures, here to suck up US benefits and take jobs away from Americans.

Third Worlders may, in fact, contribute their labor to the US, but their loyalties are elsewhere----they have no intention of becoming Americanized....of participating as equals in American culture, revering our vast history, or preserving American values.

The Senate amnesty bill is a blueprint----it amply demonstrates that illegal separatist populations intend to usurp the US political system to advance their own hidden agenda.

================================================

Immigration “reform” includes two “slush funds” amounting to $150,000,000 that may be supplemented with additional taxpayer dollars for years to come, earmarked for non-profit organizations such as the blood-thirsty La Raza.

LA RAZA TEACHING HATE-AMERICA WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America (pg. 167): “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (AKA the Plan of San Diego).

America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation. "

SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASES Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7).

Cong Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal Fifth Column in the US Congress....aiding and abetting the latino criminal underworld, colluding to take back the SW, and loot and pillage the US treasury.

Raul and friend.

THIS JUST IN---US Supreme Court Allows Nebraska City's Illegal Aliens Housing Ban to Stand
Top Right News ^ | 05-08-2014 | Brian Hayes / FR Posted by montag813

As yefragetuwrabrumuy helpfully posted......the real zinger in the USSC housing decision is that it nails illegals for “identity theft”......if they use a fake ID, and falsely claim they are citizens. And if they “do so for gain”, the crime can’t just be brushed off.

This zinger most assuredly can impact:

<><> getting in-state college tuition,using stolen SS nos and multiple id's

<><> getting a raft of govt checks, using stolen SS nos and multiple id's

<><> getting multiple EITC refunds, using stolen SS nos and multiple id's,

<><> voter fraud using fake ids, etc, etc, etc.

=============================================

Illegals known for using stolen SS nos and fake ID's for these:

<><> pocketing welfare, food stamps, EITC refunds, SSI, free medical care, Section 8 housing, UI, Workmen's comp under several identities?

<><> receiving hefty SS checks by claiming "asylum"

<><> falsifying apps to get fraudulent sub-prime mortgages,

<><> making false claims on IRS forms in order to get multiple EITC refunds?

<><> using illegal driver's license,

<><> wire-transferring money back to Mexico; the Third World,

<><> having offshore accounts under multiple identities,

<><> illegals as paid agents of foreign governments,

<><> cashing multiple govt checks under several identities in these categories:

UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp,

TANF (temporary assistance to needy families),

WICS (food assistance),

subsidized Section 8 shelter,

ObamaPhone subsidies,

Utility Assistance subsidies,

School breakfasts/lunches/snacks subsidies,

$5000 a year EITC checks per identity.

========================================

Better add this in, too:

<><> A Miami paper reported that cargo flights carried millions of US greenbacks in suitcases, port cargo containers, and money bags, from Mexico to Texas, and then to Miami Intl Airport, on a routine schedule.

From there, authorities say, the money was laundered by two Mexican businessmen through a Miami-Dade check-cashing company that used the dollars to cash the payroll checks of undocumented workers at local supermarkets.

It was all part of a Mexican-Miami bulk-cash network that federal agents say may be funded by drug profits south of the US border.

The culprits--Martin Diaz and Enrique Guerra--arrested earlier this month, appeared before a federal magistrate on charges of conspiring to launder US dollars for the purpose of “harboring illegal aliens’’ in this country. (Excerpt) Read more at miamiherald.com ...

Is this another shady act of collusion and conspiracy perpetrated by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus with tax dollars to increase their political clout, and to jet-stream US foreign aid to their Third World masters?

US tax dollars are then laundered, then funnelled back as campaign donations to amnesty-worshippers and facilitators.

===========================================

The close-mouthed Congressional Hispanic Caucus has been much too secretive about its role in financing, and, using Congressional earmarks to finance the blood-thirsty America-hating La Raza.

FACTOID race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-called "mortgage counseling."

FACTOID La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the industry to degrade mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......saddling US taxpayers w/ billions in bailouts which decimatied the US economy.

FACTOID La Raza collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."

================================================

Did the Hispanic Caucus collude w/ La Raza to aid and abet latinos falsifying bank documents, resulting in risky loans over the last decade, forcing the lending industry’s ruinous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies. Do they have proof of "mortgage counseling"?

=================================================

Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus using government offices for illegal purposes. Taxpayers demand documents held by the Hispanic Caucus be scrutinized for possible falsification.

Falsifying Government Documents involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Personal checks
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates

Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document

A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party. /

Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility

Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.

=======================================

Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus using government offices for illegal purposes.

<><> Did the Congressional Hispanic Caucus collude to aid and abet illegals to falsify bank documents?

<><> Did the Congressional Hispanic Caucus facilitate the risky sub-prime loans over the last decade, forcing the lending industry’s ruinous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies.

<><> Does the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have proof of tax-financed so-called "mortgage counseling?

YOU WANNA COME OUT OF THE SHADOWS? OKAY, HERE'S WHAT'LL HAPPEN. They already have multiple faked ID's to get drivers' licenses under different names....which also allows them to vote under different names....and collect US freebies under different names.

1. legalization forces them to get drivers' licenses under their real names.

2. state computers run a photo- match check to see if the same person has applied under different names.

3. they get investigated for ID theft and have to answer to a judge.

4. they get prosecuted under US laws.

How many people were injured in that ‘accident’ which she fled from?

Who is responsible for those costs?

They have absolutely no genetic responsibility for anything they do or have done.

They were criminals the second they stepped foot on American soil.

What is the actual percentage of these illegals who can provide a REAL birth certificate?

They already have connections to forgers who got them lots of papers to get this far.

I don’t trust one single piece of paper they can come up with.

Send them all back——and then screen them VERY CAREFULLY before letting them back in. I really don’t give a tinker’s damn about how ‘disruptive’ this might be their their false lives here.

Trying to screen them here is nuts. They will only relocate somewhere else underground, with new forged papers.

I had to jump thru hoops to open a bank account at age 65. Born in this country—had various bank accounts since I was 16, owned 3 other homes before I moved here. Had numerous credit cards thru the years-—and had to provide all kinds of proof I was who I said I was.

At the same time, local Wells Fargo banks were just short of begging illegals to open accounts with them.

Hence, I will NEVER do any business with Wells Fargo at anytime in the future.

Besides—anyone who believes there are only 11 million illegals here is just plain willfully blind. IT is far more-—much closer to 55 million.

Don't fall for Third World agit-prop---aliens falsely juggle the numbers --- b/c vote-crazed pols have wet dreams over the potential votes, and ramp up foreign aid appropriations.

PEW REPORT The US is the most important source of remittances to Latin America, accounting for 3/4's of last year's $52.9 billion total. -- wire transfers of US tax dollars accounted for the highest percentage of GDP in El Salvador (16.5%), Honduras (15.7%) and Guatemala 10%).-- The US is No. 1 nation from which illegals' wire transfers originate, sending $123.3 billion abroad in 2012.

INCONVENIENT AMNESTY FACTOIDS low-wage illegals barely eaking out an existence on sub-minimum wages, lawn-mowing and hamburger flipping, wire transfer zillions back to their decrepit homelands.

<><> A latino woman residing in California, who spoke not a word of English, had a $100,000 nest egg and lived in a paid-up $100,000 home. She was on TV b/c she lost the nest egg to a father/son con game. The conmen were also latinos who got filthy rich preying on non-English speaking latinos, supposedly in low-paying jobs, who had hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest.

<><> The one million Dominican Republic citizens currently living illegally in the US send home about a billion US dollars annually---which the corrupt do-nothing DR govt considers to a major source of state revenue. A steady exodus leaves the DR for US shores (lured by the endless US gravy train).

<><> US newspapers report Dominican Republic illegals get EBT cards then ship the food to the D/R where their relatives sell the food on the streets.

<><> A US post office near the Mexican border was used by illegals to send US gravy train money back home. It was so busy, the US govt had to add-on several trailers to handle the business. ////Obama, Schumer and the rest of the Dummycrat amnesty crowd have done everything to suck up for votes except fellate a latino on the Capitol steps.

-===============================================

Republican Sen Charles Grassley tried to protect Americans w/ this amendment to the amnesty bill: "Congress should not thumb its nose at the millions of Americans who are victims of identity theft, often perpetrated by an undocumented person who steals Social Security numbers to get jobs, govt benefits, driver's licenses and more. This amendment will simply require the person applying for RPI status to disclose any previously used Social Security numbers," said Grassley. "It's the first step to helping clean up the mess that's been created for the victim of identity theft. The amendment also authorizes certain federal agencies, upon receipt of this information, to notify individuals who were the victims."

SEN SCHUMER WENT PROSTRATE, GOT OUT THE LIP BALM, AND PUCKERED UP: Dismissing Sen Grassley's proposal, Sen Schumer (Dimwit-NY) said: "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don't see how, when you've lived here 10 years, and you've had many different identities, many different numbers, you're going to remember them all," said Schumer.

=============================================

A PROTECTION RACKET EMBEDDED IN US LAW Would you believe the amnesty bill actually protects corrupt Latino Public Officials from US laws and from prosecution.......only latino pols, mind you.

Vote-crazed Dems allow amnesty to absolve elected/appointed latinos holding US public office from prosecution for wrongdoing---for crimes like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling votes for cash....(the usual politician crimes).

There really is a Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials organized for govt fraud.

NANCY SUCKS UP at Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC
