TIME Mag: Koch Brothers Helping Illegal Immigrants Get Driverís Licenses

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Anti-Trump conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch are helping illegal immigrants in the U.S. obtain driver’s licenses, as well as preparing them for citizenship tests. A fluff piece by TIME Magazine spotlights the Koch Brothers’ LIBRE Initiative organization for its work being done to help illegal immigrants while President Trump and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have successfully increased immigration enforcement.

“It is chaotic. People are very, very worried about their situation,” says Aguado. “One of the things that has been a positive thing through this stress that people have is that they’re more interested in becoming U.S. citizens. She now spends time volunteering to help her neighbors and strangers alike to figure out their immigration status, get papers in order and, in many cases, start the process of converting their legal status into citizenship.

The patrons who organize these consultation? The conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch and their deep-pocketed pals who are continuing to spend millions to help promote free-market ideas in Latino communities across the country. Through the Koch network’s LIBRE Initiative, volunteers and advisers are helping immigrants study for drivers’ license exams so they have some form of government ID, others prepare for citizenship tests and still others earn a G.E.D. And it doesn’t matter if they are here legally or not.

Longtime Koch manager Daniel Garza touted the fact that the organization does not ask immigrants seeking help what their legal status is.

“We do not ask what anybody’s legal status. To us, that’s irrelevant. We want to help people drive. We let the politicians worry about whether someone is documented or not documented,” Garza told TIME.

The numbers on illegal immigration, according to immigrationcounters.com, are as follows:

•27,000,000 illegal aliens.

•397,446,000,000 Was spent on the cost of social services since 1996.

•15,339,869 Is the number of skilled Jobs provided to illegal aliens.

•955,200 is the number of illegal alien fugitives in the United States.

•613,755 Illegal aliens are currently incarcerated.

•22,288,000,000 Has been the cost of incarcerations Since 2008.

•4,861,515 Is the number of Anchor Babies born Since 2002.

•7,395,195 Children of illegal aliens are in public schools.

•156,388,000,000 Spent on Illegal aliens in K-12 Since 1996.

The Koch bros. absolutely are criminals when you understand the consequences of 3rd World immigration and demographic voting trends.

There is no way the United States will survive, unless this invasion and the current demographic trend is reversed. Steve King was right when he said that we can’t restore our civilization with other people’s babies.

This is how this country is going down. These people need to pay a price in the next life. Sickening how many people have suffered, sacrificed, and died for this country to have these monsters cheapen citizenship and work to destroy us.

Europe is already dead. Give it 10 years. There will be white genocide and then the other races will be fighting. This country will soon be third world.

Taking a page out of the Democrat’s book, why can’t the Kochs businesses be audited in EXCRUCIATING detail? I’m sure the Trump adm can find ways to pay back these people. If he doesn’t, it will just encourage others to “help” the illegals.

Thus the Mexican colonizer sneers at American citizenship as if it is nothing

The Trump administration is still handing out work permits under the illegal DACA program.
Whatever else they do on immigration enforcement is undermined by this illegal program dreamed up by Obama and continued by President Trump.

“These people need to pay a price in the next life.”

They need to pay a price in THIS life. They are breaking the law.

It’s about voter fraud and the ultimate supreme power of the Democrat Party. This needs to come front and center despite the left’s efforts to hide it.

About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

“A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.”From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years”

“During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. from bondage to spiritual faith;

2. from spiritual faith to great courage;

3. from courage to liberty;

4. from liberty to abundance;

5. from abundance to complacency;6. from complacency to apathy;

7. from apathy to dependence;

8. From dependence back into bondage”

So far to my knowledge Alexander Tyler’s predictions have never failed to come true and I am surprised that the US made it for as long and as well as it did, but it is beginning to show an ever increasing amount of damage to its original greatness as well as concept which gradually is being eroded until the time, sad to say; when the US will only be a shadow of its former self. All I can say is, enjoy it for as long as you are able to as I believe we have left the best of times behind us and are in the process of gradually killing the goose which laid the golden eggs due to poor management of our inheritance.

Koch Brothers and their conservative values at work./s

Proves once again that money will win over principles every time. Only those who have no money can afford principles.
