Posted on 01/17/2011 6:53:09 AM PST by scottfactor
Despite the thuggish Obama administration suing Arizona for simply attempting to uphold the law of our land, since the federal government refuses to secure our borders, its heartening to see that at least half of the states in America are pushing ahead with legislation that is similar to Arizonas anti-illegal immigration legislation. Im glad to say Mississippi is one of those states.
Its time we stopped letting the radical leftists among us shout us down on this issue. The moment legislation is drafted which proposes that illegal immigration be addressed within a state, here come the rent-a-mobs, waiving their foreign flags, to protest at the state capitol building and the so-called immigrant rights groups to wail about how unjust and racist it all is. Of course, the whole foundation of immigrant rights groups is fallacious, because theyre fighting for non-existent rights for illegal aliens, and I for one have long had enough of their malarkey. The fact is that America is a nation based on the rule of law. America, like all nations, has borders, and it is illegal to cross those borders without legal permission. If you are not an American citizen, you are not allowed into our country without legal permission. The illegal alien has the right to be ejected from our country, period.
The devastating flood of illegal aliens into America, especially since the mid-nineties, is by design of the Left, and was allowed to continue under President George W. Bush. In an essay column by Jerry Woodruff, posted last June on the Middle American News site, Mr. Woodruff outlines the plan by the Left to use Third World legal and illegal immigration to subvert the conservative vote in America and eventually render conservatives unable to elect conservative Republicans to power. His essay opens with this statement,
Democrat Party strategists, politicians, labor leaders, and a host of left-wing social justice organizations all across the country are engaged in a strategy to drastically transform Americas population through mass immigration in order to guarantee their own and their allies dominance in U.S. government, society, and culture. The plot itself is simple: reshape the American electorate through mass immigration to reduce the political clout of the native white middle class.
If it succeeds, Americas racial composition and cultural and political character will be changed forever.
His essay remarks on the fact that the majority of conservatives are of white European heritage. But, I would add that conservatism has nothing whatsoever to do with a persons race, and the conservative mind and heart is found among all races. Unlike Democrats, Conservative Republicans do not focus on race. Democrats are the ones who focus on race in order to keep people divided.
Mr. Woodruffs essay reports that the strategy of immigration flooding from the Third World was used in Britain by the Labor Party. He writes,
In Britain, mass immigration has already been exposed by a former Labor Party insider as a political strategy used against conservative opponents. Andrew Neather, a former senior aide to Labor Prime Minister Tony Blair and Home Secretary Jack Straw, admitted in an October 2009 article in the London Evening Standard that mass immigration didnt just happen: the deliberate policy of Ministers from late 2000 ... was to open up the UK to mass immigration. Neather, who still supports mass immigration from the Third World, said that in meetings with government officials, the plan had what he called a driving political purpose which was to defeat the conservative Tory opposition. He wrote, mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended even if this wasnt its main purpose to rub the Rights nose in diversity and render their arguments [against multiculturalism] out of date. He said the government intended to keep the plan secret, for fear of alienating the public. He wrote, ministers wouldnt talk about it. ... [W]hile ministers might have been passionately in favour of a more diverse society, it wasnt necessarily a debate they wanted to have in working mens clubs... Since poorer non-white immigrants tend to vote liberal-left when they become citizens while older, mostly white voters tend to support the conservatives, Labor Party leaders knew immigration would give them electoral advantages.
Here in the U.S., the plan to transform America by granting citizenship to increasing numbers of poor, low-skilled, non-white illegal immigrants for precisely the same reasons is quietly recommended by Democrat Party strategists and left-wing leaders. But publicly they claim to support mass immigration of poor Third World populations for purely humanitarian or moral reasons.
The ruse of the radical Left in America is to claim that they want to make illegal aliens legal because its the so-called right thing to do on a moral basis. They conveniently forget that we have a process for allowing foreigners to gain citizenship in our country. Its not an easy thing to get American citizenship, nor should it be easy. Regardless, the Lefts concern is not for the welfare of the poor, uneducated, illegal aliens; their concern is for their own political power in Washington. They dont give a flip about the Constitution or the rule of law in America. They only want to force our country down the road that ultimately leads to a communist state, wherein the people have no power, no voice and no money.
Just look at one of the champions for illegal aliens being made instant American citizens by fiat, Illinois Democrat Congressman Luis Gutierrez. Like other members of Congress, he no doubt swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, yet back in November, an article in Newsweek quotes him as saying,
I have only one loyalty, and thats to the immigrant community.
Here is a ten-term congressman who was elected to represent the American citizen residents of his district, and instead of doing so, hes running around the country whipping up illegal aliens. This is anti-American, subversive activity by a sitting congressman! Is there no one on our side in the government who will call him on his radical leftist behavior?
Mr. Woodruff continues his report on the leftist immigration strategy here in America,
Robert Creamer, an influential Democrat strategist and left-wing social justice activist, has called for just such a strategy. Creamer is the husband of left-wing Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-IL, and is a long time party loyalist, consultant, and lobbyist. He is the head of Strategic Consulting Group, a political consulting firm whose clients include the left-wing ACORN, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the AFL-CIO, the United Steelworkers Union of America, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and other left-wing outfits. Creamer has also worked for the far left Open Society Institute funded by the radical multi-billionaire international financier George Soros. Even though Creamer in 2006 was convicted and sentenced to prison for bank fraud and tax evasion, he is still held in high regard by Democrat powerhouses, and after getting out of jail was invited to attend President Barack Obamas first official state dinner at the White House.
In his book, Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win, Creamer urges a strategy that will dilute white voting strength. He says the Democrats who control Congress should grant amnesty to illegal aliens because it will enhance the political clout of left-wingers by increasing their voter base. He writes, the immigration battle is ... important because it will have an enormous impact on the battle for power between the progressive and conservative forces in American society.
These radical leftists like Creamer and Gutierrez and their ilk in the Hispanic race hustling business do not have a love for America in their hearts. Instead, they have a hellish lust for unbridled power, and the welfare of our nation be damned. They do not care about the detrimental effects of illegal immigration on our hospitals, our schools, our prisons and criminal justice system, or our public assistance programs. And, lets not forget the drug cartel crime that increasingly overflows our unsecured southern border.
Congressional Republicans must take a strong, unapologetic stand against the feverish efforts by the left to legalize what should never be legal. The illegal immigration plot by the Left must be stopped if America is to remain the free republic that it was founded to be. Unless our elected conservative Republican leaders are willing to stand firm against the America-destroying agenda of the Left, our nation is in real danger of being transformed into a Third World cesspool. If illegal aliens are given the vote that should only belong to American citizens, then our vote will eventually be rendered powerless. The Left must be stopped.
Two years from now I hope we can pick them up and ship them out!
Ditto, except the US legal immigration system isn't all that great either. It allows family members of immigrants to legally immigrate and immediately get government aid. I know personally a number of immigrants from poor countries who came here and got 100 % free (state) college in MD, and now they vote Democrat believing that is they way for others to get ahead.
And the Democrat's here are proposing giving tuition discounts to resident illegals WITH another wave of tax increases on us, all because MD was another big win for Democrats last year after a huge set of tax increases they feel free to do what they want.
Unfortunately, it's becoming a more effective strategy every week, or so it seems.
I know several immigrants here in Texas that have done the same thing. They pretty much went to college for free, soaking up all kinds of government handouts and now then thanks to affirmative action have spring-boarded ahead of those that have worked there entire lives to get where they are.
I've said it before, it does not pay to be a native born American anymore!!!!!
Thanks as always for posting a complete, thoughtful, and well-documented essay.
Overshadowing the obviously terrible economics of expanding the voter base with a non-contributing underclass, this movement points out the inherent faults in the whole notion of universal suffrage - a democratic notion the Founders of this ~REPUBLIC~ adamantly abhorred.
They left their countries because law enforcement is limited and are now coming over here wanting to recreate the same principles of law here.This is the main reason to come here, for we are a nation of laws.If things continue as they are, we will be as bad as Mexico.It should not come down to we cannot enforce this because, it would mean the law applies equally.
And remember 2011 Midterms, when Obama told latinos to "punish their enemies" by voting against Republicans. How'd that work out for suckup Dems who got annihilated? ROTFL
Obama also had BIG PLANS for the latino vote in the 2010 governor's NJ. That flopped bigtime when the Dem-laden state elected a Republican. Heres how Obamas ill-fated NJ campaign to organize latinos for Dems went down:
OBAMA WAS DESPERATE FOR NJ GOV CORZINE TO WIN. Obama and Obama were heavly invested in the race---one of only two statewide races. This was the first test for Obama's policies. Obama campaigned in NJ three times, Biden was here twice. Obama TV ads ran relentlessly on costly NY media.
Obama put the power of the WH political machine behind Corzine. The NY Times reported:
(a) every TV ad Corzine put on the air was screened by Obama's WH "geniuses."
(b) Corzine's aides gave the WH daily briefings.
(c) Obamas pollsters took over for Corzines polling team, and,
(d) White House operatives were on the ground for internal strategy sessions.
Democrats rigged the election with latino votes (so they thought)
(e) White House operatives were orchestrating obscure pep rallies with Latinos (kept secret from voters),
(f) Corzine had a "Peruvian Pac" endorsing him.
(g) Corzine promised to give illegals driving credentials & in-state tuition.
(h) Corzine sucked up to illegal immigrants and REFUSED to enforce current immigration laws
(j) Corzine's Blue Ribbon committee of Hyphenates used tax dollars to mine votes for Corzine.
(j) Also sucking up to illegals for Corzine was Sen Robert Menendez
OTHER SALIENT POINTS
>> Incumbent Corzine (the wealthy loser) outspent the winner Chris Chirstie about 4-1.
>> New Jersey has a huge Democratic registration.
>> Corzine bragged he had 20,000 paid union helpers to get out the vote.
>> There was a third party candidate siphoning off Republican votes.
>> Corzine had the power of incumbency.
>> Corzine had the power of a crooked Democrat Machine cooking the vote.
NJ is Latino Fraud Central for latinos slobbering at the public trough with several fake id's.....and voting. Read on.
Texans accused of selling counterfeit IDs (impoverished illegals "here for a better life" pay several thousand $$$ for fake ID's)
NORTH BERGEN (AP) The Pelcastre brothers were a walking threat to national security -- expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, authorities said. When police stumbled across the pair, the men had turned a hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local identity broker. The brothers, Angel, 31, and Jorge, 34, both of Dallas, were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of government documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the country , including passports and resident alien cards, said state police.
If a terrorist were able to get their hands on this stuff, they'd have free passage throughout the country.
A L/E task force happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in the parking lot of the hotel . Authorities wouldn't identify the hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution from savage blood cartels. The L/E task force regularly runs checks on motor vehicles in area motels.
Members of the task force began watching the cars, a Chevrolet Impala and a Pontiac Firebird, and followed the brothers to an office supply store in a nearby shopping center, where the two purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the brothers to a self-storage facility where they loaded several boxes from a storage unit into one of the cars. One man was a lookout.
Authorities approached them when they returned and questioned them separately. The brothers consented to a search of their cars, hotel room and storage facility.
Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs. All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a fake document broker for a shipment of 500 Social Security cards.
"They were aggressively selling to brokers. This isn't like selling driver's licenses to individuals. These were multiple layers of high-level documents."
The brothers were held without bail on charges of possessing fraudulent documents and conspiracy to sell fraudulent documents. Federal charges are also pending against them.
It might be the left’s strategy, but fools like Palin, McCain, the Bushes, Barbour, Arnold, etc etc are as culpable as the Rats.
