Bordering on Revolution

A hostile Supreme Court. A feckless Obama administration. America's war on Mexicans has gone too far.

Bordering on Revolution

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia wasn't merely skeptical; he appeared contemptuous of the Justice Department's argument trying to stop Arizona's cops from deporting undocumented Mexicans.

"But if, in fact, somebody who does not belong in this country is in Arizona, Arizona has no power?" asked the incredulous Scalia. ". . . Are you objecting to harassing the—the people who have no business being here? Surely you're not concerned about harassing them?"

God forbid.

Nor did Scalia suffer cara de culo alone.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts concluded an observation by noting, "It seems to me that the federal government just doesn't want to know who's here illegally or not."

With these comments, the United States Supreme Court signaled that its expected ruling this month will, in significant part, validate Arizona's Senate Bill 1070.

If that happens, being brown will permit cops across America to ask: Which brown are you?

A journalist I work with, Monica Alonzo, grew up on the hardscrabble west side of Phoenix with brown skin.

Although she is an American, something as simple as stopping to fill her gas tank could prompt a cruel refrain: "Go back to Mexico."

She remembers the white school board members who voted themselves out of paying taxes to support the mostly Latino school in the town of El Mirage. Her cousin was routinely pulled over if he ventured into a neighboring white community.

But these are memories, not complaints. This treatment did not stop Monica Alonzo. She made herself into an award-winning investigative reporter.

Today, she buys gas where she chooses.

She put the petty meanness behind her and made something of herself.

But SB 1070 changed everything.

In Arizona, brown people, citizen and immigrant, must now prove their papers are in order. We sic badges and dogs on people of color. Sheriff Joe Arpaio's men wear ski masks and arm themselves with automatic weapons to stop Mexicans with cracked windshields. Families are separated, with parents deported and children left to fend for themselves. Those who remain are terrorized.

After one Arpaio sweep through the town of Guadalupe, children were too frightened to attend their Catholic confirmation lest relatives be arrested.

Like the pre–Civil War era of free and slave states, America is about to divide along color lines.

Six states already have a version of Arizona's bill and are awaiting the ruling for implementation. In all, 16 states filed amicus briefs urging the Supreme Court to support SB 1070.

Where once we depended upon the federal government to protect minorities from firehoses and segregated schoolhouses named Booker T. Washington or George Washington Carver, this month, the Supreme Court is poised to tell us how far local cops can go to detain brown people.

As if the federal government hadn't gone far enough.

In fact, President Obama has deported 1.5 million Latinos, more than any president. Such a massive displacement of humanity does not come without brutality.

In the first six months of 2011, 46,000 mothers and fathers were shipped back to Mexico and left their children in America. And more than 20,000 other parents were ordered out but have yet to depart. Roughly 22 percent of all deportees were forced to abandon children—children who are American citizens.

What SB 1070 does is criminalize the undocumented. The law forces all police officers to ascertain a person's immigration status whenever a cop interacts with a brown person. Lights on a license plate too dim? A call about domestic violence? If an officer harbors any suspicion, he or she must ask for proof of citizenship. And if a cop doesn't do that, any citizen can sue the cop for not taking deportation seriously. To protect against lawsuits, the cautious cop must question all Latinos.

The stated purpose of SB 1070 is "attrition through enforcement," a chillingly efficient phrase.

How does the cop on the beat tell a Mexican from a Mexican-American?

And so, the 74 percent of all Latinos in America who are, in reality, U.S. citizens must be harassed about their origins. Unlike everyone else, they must carry papers.

Why?

Obama sells the roundup of brown people through a program called Secure Communities. The alternative is clear enough.

Have we forgotten that the Irish, Italians, Jews, and Cubans generated almost as many mug shots as American dreams?

Polls show that SB 1070 and similar laws in other states are supported by voters at rates between 60 to 70 percent nationally.

In states that have passed laws allowing local law enforcement to hunt the undocumented, the financial impact has been devastating.

Last August, Monica Alonzo examined labor shortages in the farm economy, where an estimated 80 percent of the workforce is undocumented.

She learned that efforts to recruit Americans to pick crops have failed abysmally.

In the late 1990s, Alonzo reported, "California launched a 'welfare to farmwork' program in the Central Valley at a time when regional unemployment was as high as 20 percent. . . . A massive campaign addressed training, transportation, and other obstacles to getting workers in the fields. Though there were more than 100,000 potential workers, only three jobs were filled."

Things weren't any easier in Washington state. There, "a labor shortage for the 2006 cherry harvest prompted an advertising blitz to recruit about 1,700 needed workers, particularly for the much larger apple harvest that was just around the corner. Only 40 people took jobs."

According to Alonzo's research, things were even worse in the East. "The following year, in North Carolina," she wrote, "farm officials set up a statewide hotline to fill crop and livestock jobs. Two calls were received."

Things have only gotten worse with anti-immigrant legislation.

In 2007, more than 90,000 migrants fled Oklahoma, causing a loss of $1.9 billion to the state's economy. Since passage of SB 1070, Arizona has shed 200,000 migrants, who fled to friendlier states.

Agriculture is the largest sector in Georgia's economy, yet lawmakers passed stiff anti-immigrant legislation projected to cost the state $391 million in lost crops. The governor suggested that farmers hire ex-cons to work the fields. The ex-cons refused. More than 70 percent of Georgia's restaurants had labor shortages and lost, on average, $21,000 per eating establishment.

Last year, Alabama one-upped Arizona and passed a tougher, meaner anti-immigrant measure.

Research at the University of Alabama said the state could lose up to $10.8 billion and 140,000 jobs.

The governor demanded that the statehouse reconsider. Alabama legislators responded by making the law tougher.

Why, in the middle of a recession, would statehouses vote to cripple their economies by driving Mexicans to flee?

Why, with President Obama deporting more Latinos than at any time in the nation's history, would legislators demand local cops inspect citizenship papers?

The inescapable answer: race!

The guiding proponent of these statutes is Kris W. Kobach, who helped author SB 1070.

At the time, Kobach was senior counsel to the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

In 1986, John Tanton, FAIR's founder wrote: "As whites see their power and control over their lives declining, will they simply go quietly into the night? Or will there be an explosion?"

Not surprisingly, the Southern Poverty Law Center called FAIR a racially driven organization.

Alabama's copycat legislation was penned by State Senator Scott Beason, who has called blacks "aborigines" and declared that when it came to immigration, folks ought to "empty the clip."

In Arizona, the bill drafted by Kobach was sponsored by then–State Senator Russell Pearce.

In 2006, Pearce forwarded to his followers a screed he'd read entitled, "Who Rules America." The essay took exception to race mixing and a "world in which every voice proclaims the equality of races, the inerrant nature of the Jewish 'Holocaust' tale, the wickedness of attempting to halt the flood of non-White aliens pouring across our borders . . ."

The essay, which originated from a neo-Nazi newsletter, went on to ask: "And who are these all-powerful masters of the media?"

The answer was obvious: "As we shall see, to a very large extent they are Jews."

Eerily, the message Pearce forwarded to political supporters in 2006 foreshadowed coming bloodshed.

"On the other hand, a White racist—that is, any racially conscious White person who looks askance at miscegenation or at the rapidly darkening racial situation in America—is portrayed, at best, as a despicable bigot who is reviled by the other characters, or, at worst, as a dangerous psychopath who is fascinated by firearms and is a menace to all law abiding citizens. . . ." read Pearce's send-along.

Last month, Pearce acolyte J.T. Ready slaughtered his girlfriend, her daughter, her daughter's boyfriend, and a 16-month-old infant before turning the gun on himself.

Ready was a neo-Nazi who was photographed at white supremacist rallies in full National Socialist regalia. Following the passage of SB 1070, Ready formed an armed militia that hunted Mexicans in southern Arizona.

After the multiple homicides, Pearce tried to distance himself from Ready. This sleight of hand was complicated for Pearce: He'd endorsed Ready's failed run for the Mesa City Council and, in fact, had ordained Ready into the priesthood of the Mormon faith and attended his baptism.

These, then, are the miscreants who have stirred this nation's darkest prejudices.

None of this was grist in the Supreme Court. The Obama administration opted to argue only the narrowest of issues: State immigration laws trampled federal domain. With an election looming, the president chose not to confront nativist anxiety.

Latino groups and civil rights organizations have filed lawsuits that challenge what Obama ducked. These suits recount what happens on American streets when brown people are detained, when Mexicans and Central Americans are crowded into detention centers, when families are ripped apart.

When law enforcement cordons off brown communities, the law, as applied, is apartheid.

Perhaps you can understand, after a wave of hateful legislation and a galling discussion by justices and attorneys in the country's highest court, that there are those not content with jurisprudence.

You see, all this legal eloquence comes after generations of families picked crops on their way to citizenship, only to encounter lawyers and lawmakers who are worse than any field boss.

Monica Alonzo's father crossed the border from Mexico. His family worked in the cotton fields. They earned less, picked more, and kept their mouths shut. Kids in school were slapped if they were overheard speaking Spanish.

"They mistreated the Mexicans the worst in El Mirage," Alonzo says. "Mexicans went straight to jail or were roughed up for minor offenses."

"They were made to feel like worthless people," Alonzo recalls. "Many Mexicans instilled in their children the importance of speaking only English. Not in my house. For my father, the treatment created a lot of resentment towards whites. We weren't allowed to speak English at home for some time. We would get in trouble if he knew we were mixing with the Anglos."

There was a common warning in her home: "Beware of the blue-eyes."

Alonzo says her family and their friends feared deportation, even after they were living here legally.

"They didn't want to draw attention to themselves."

That's done and gone.

In Arizona, thousands have taken to the street in protest against SB 1070. Abuelas are joined by kids without papers. Together, they commit civil disobedience and force arrests.

The Supreme Court doesn't grasp that its decision is not the final word on the subject.

Media everywhere erupted with the recent news that whites now account for a minority of births in America for the first time. Latinos have the highest fertility rate and are already the largest minority.

"If (reform) doesn't happen as part of a revolution," Alonzo says, "the sheer numbers will eventually force change."

See that little roly-poly, hija rock 'n' rolly, wearing pull-ups, sporting earrings, and sitting on her mama's lap?

She is your future.

Thank god we live in America where you're not executed for being an illegal alien, is your message, right? Well, Hallelujah. :)

You teel em, ZB! All those damn haters-doncha just hate 'em! Speaking of doing something with yourself and being productive, why don't you educate yourself about the crisis this Nation faces from the 15 million alien invaders here? Does that make me a bigot? If I admit that the sun comes up in the morning, does THAT make me a bigot? These people are here in violation of United States law, period. They have no legal right to remain here, and no entitlement to any public benefits. Any welfare, unemployment, etc., that they recieve, is felony fraud. Those are facts. Just like the sun coming up. You might not like it, you might throw a tantrum and call people names, but it doesn't change the FACT that these people are here illegally, and they are destroying our Nation.

Has anyone noticed other countries!!!! Try being in Germany, Iraq, Iran, Great Britain, Saudi Arabia. In these countries you are arrested and removed instantly!!!! and in some of them you are put in prison for 10 years or better YET EXECUTED. If you are ILLEGALLY YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW. WHAT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND!!!! So lets see your of brown skin and happen to be in an area where many other brown skinned people live who are illegal. UH DUH. of course your going to be questioned on this. My ITALIAN RELATIVES DID IT LEGALLY WHEN THEM CAME TO THIS COUNTRY. YOU DO THE SAME AND IF YOU DON'T GET DEPORTED. WHAT THE PROBLEM. (STOP BREAKING THE LAW AND PULLING THE RACE CARD)

This is sick. This is such blatant racism. Wait until the darker skinned Italians, Israelis, and European-descended Americans start getting harassed. Even "white" Americans sometimes get a tan. But this is fairly typical - the financial powers that be simply want more and more control over the citizenry. So whenever an emotionally charged event takes place (such as September 11th or in this case the Arizona population's anger at illegal Mexican Immigrants) the powers that be through the Federal government use that as an opportunity to pass draconian legislation that will ultimately also be used against those outraged US Citizens as well. For example, the TSA (a by-product of the Patriot Act passed after September 11th) molests and harasses everyone now, not just Muslims or Arabs. If this bill is upheld by the US Supreme Court, it will only be a very short time until even Governor Jan Brewer and US Supreme Court Justices Scalia and Roberts get pulled out of line at their local McDonalds and frisked/ harassed/ questioned intrusively by local law enforcement. Then they will say "what the hell? why did we introduce and/or pass such legislation?" First they came for the ____, and I said/did nothing, then they came for the ____, and I said/did nothing, then they came for me, and there was no one left.

I suggest you do something better with your time than hanging out in your mom's basement or whoever's couch your living off of you waste for a human. You have nothing better to do than throw around Nazi hatred like that is something worth typing. Your a coward because that is all you have to say and reply with. You are just a piece of scum like the Nazi's that brought so much hate and hell to people who didn't deserve to suffer for generations. I'm not even German you ignorant minded ahole, It's a shame bigots and small minded fools like yourself are walking around this earth giving humanity a bad name. Do something with yourself and actually do something productive in helping society or your culture with your actions than perpetuate hate and spread mindless and useless rhetoric.

I say these wimp liberals ought to be sent back to school. For the word illegal is one that is doing something by breaking the law.and by them sneaking across the border to come in to this country.I have a perfect solution on how we can stop them from comming in here. Illegaly. I say we put about two million land minds on the border and set up an electrical fence with five million volts of electricty going Through it that will take care of there mexican Beaner asses. And keep them in Mexico where they belong. Now if they want to come here leagely through the proper channels ill gladly welcome them with open arms. But if they do it by breaking the law then we should use the method i just mentioned. Greg Giusti San francisco ca

Another big factor in these racist bills - the Corrections Corporation of America and other private prison corporations. CCA worked closely with Arizona legislators to write SB-1070 and has been lobbying legislators in all 50 states to create more anti-immigrant legislation. Why? Because building and running detention centers - our own private gulag - is very profitable. And no one cares what goes on in a detention center - people die, medical care is withheld, guards sadistically keep the rooms cold and deny blankets - because white folks in this country have been snowed into believing that "illegal" immigrants deserve whatever they get.

This article wasn't written by a mexican maybe because 1) he or she is too busy still working on job number #2 to be able to put food on the table 2) or perhaps have you not noticed that the richest man in the world is still MEXICAN, who is a mogul in his NATIVE MEXICO and basically head of all Communications - dominates all cell/tv etc.. No you ignorant bigots from both sides all the aisle, not all Mexicans pick strawberries nor do they have to live in tiny apartments in the lower east side or reside in trendy wannabe poor looking areas in cutesy brooklyn neighborhoods where posers are taking over brick by brick and work for Newspapers like the voice, this guy probably lives in Queens or even LOng Island or who the hell cares if he's white. He wrote an article that needs to be written every day until this bigoted country gets its hypocritical act together and stop feeling entitled and assume the civil rights movement was all in vain. This generation is the biggest embarrasment to the social issues of today.

Exploiting Mexicans is the one area where the right, the left, business and the state can all get along. The bourgeois left gets something to wring their hands over at a nice farm-to-fork restaurant staffed in the back by Mexicans. The right gets a perpetual wedge issue that riles the white working class. Business gets cheap labor. The State gets a population dead to rights, lowering the aggregate power of the general population. The illegals get an "opportunity" fraught with some serious risks and the quick realization that every side of the issue is full of shit and the only reason the jobs are even there for the taking is because even poor Americans feel they're too good to do Mexican work. Shit, we do need these people. Highly questionable whether we deserve them.

Why do we always have to have exploitable labor to make it in this country? The real problem is paying workers too little, and lousy working conditions. Until the immigrant community is legalized, they will continue to live in fear of deportation, and therefore they will be afraid to make labor demands. When that time comes, (legalization, if it does), we can all get together on the major issues that concern us all, like full employment. Maybe then we can all stop underselling ourselves to the lowest bidder. Divided we fall. Let's stop this race to the bottom and get some sanity. The bosses are laughing all the way to the bank. We should all be able to work for a living wage, side by side, and we should all be able to join labor unions, if we so desire.

The usual open border entities are defying--THE AMERICAN PEOPLE--and are implicit in this weakening of our laws are Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder running the Department of Justice. Now we have Washington, D.C. Mayor-Vincent Gray denying the principles that govern us, signing a executive order similar to the directive in Los Angeles, that prohibits police officers from detaining foreign nationals even though it’s a mandated law, “SECURE COMMUNITIES”. All these so called politicians, the governors, Mayors and other elected political appendages of every level of government should be thrown in the street, when they are adverse to public’s will. For decades the government have repeatedly ignored, that mainstream demands was to build a secure barrier between the U.S and Mexico. There has been no real deterrent of overstays that disappear after leaving airports.

Anybody who has investigated the Democratic leadership would find they slowly weaken 287 G that gave regular police training to question suspicious people about their immigrant status? But oddly currently however the administration has mandated ‘Secure Communities’ which curbs illegal aliens who have been caught, and now subjected to fingerprinting and reviewed by Homeland Security and the ICE branch. Arizona County Sheriff Joe Ariapo was marked by radical groups as was his office; his deputies having a incredulous success until illegal immigration groups didn’t condone him apprehending not just alien criminal, but illegal aliens who have snubbed our laws in his jurisdiction.

We all must realize that BLANKET AMNESTY on the immediate horizon if Obama is returned in November to the white House. Liberals will pull out all the stops to collapse anything that smells of immigration enforcement, including the left’s politicians ignoring illegal aliens voting nationwide.

By now most business are cognizant of the federal program E-Verify? It distinguishes US citizens and legal residents from illegal labor. Although not flawless, it has a 99.6 success rate and observably will overtime become even more constructive to business that believes in the "Rule of Law." Opponents in both the business sector and even on Capitol Hill have released a torrent of abuse against the application and both parties have refused to vote on this mandated law. That includes its function to reveal counterfeit documentation and spurious ID and reject foreign workers, so American can be hired. So even if you are flagged, and eligible to work, irregularities are resolved by GOING TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE TO BE EXONERATED? ONLY ILLEGAL LABOR WILL AVOID TURNING TO SSA FOR RESOLVING THIS ISSUE.

The open border conspirators may be defeated, when the federal Supreme Court a makes a major decision this month on Arizona policing laws. It could change the outlook of all 50 states, which are observing with great scrutiny if the central government says only there power is absolute. That Arizona cannot protect its own people from unfettered movement of illegal aliens, that they must keep paying for the thieves that are stealing our sovereignty and public entitlements But as E-Verify are perfected it needs to become a permanent tool in the incomplete arsenal of immigration enforcement. It needs to reach out to every company, big and small, in our country and every individual who works there? E-Verify eventually will expel foreign national from the workplace, without financial appropriations on a large scale. These people will self-deport when they cannot be hired anymore.

Businesses will be facing huge fines and prison as the ultimate deterrent. In time it will save our ailing schools, health care, home mortgages and government welfare system. Look to NUMBERSUSA for honest an answer, that includes costs to taxpayers for the new blanket AMNESTY. Which Senators and Republicans, which Governors, Mayors and other elected officials are anti-US American Worker and immigration upgrades? Illegal Immigration, the leaking border region, chain migration, sanctuary cities will certainly be an issue before we arrive at the presidential election. Sanctuary states as California, Nevada, and New York are overwhelmed by the need for more taxes, to pay for the overload of foreign nationals.

California is already suffering from a 16 billion dollar deficit and its liberal Governor, and mostly far left assembly are already determined to siphon of more taxes, from one of the highest taxes rates in the nation. Even more dismal for the future of California is that individuals are trying to pass a state approved Amnesty, for their millions of outlaws. How more insane can this be, when they are already running a huge deficit, by giving illegal aliens welfare, food stamps, health care in the form of MediCAL, Section 8 housing and a education for their children to K-12, although this isn’t true as they are passing laws so these students can appropriate state tax payer dollars for college. Many of educated U.S. born children cannot get into college, as they cannot afford the tuition fees.

Not many Americans have comprehended that if; IF Congress passed an amendment of ‘THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP BILL’, there wouldn’t be any more open door of instant citizenship for their children. The 400.000 children who are smuggled through entry ports would no longer qualify for instant citizenship, thereby disabling to some extent unfunded court mandates. It would not be that feasible to bring their unborn child, here unless one parent was a citizen. If enacted the ‘BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP LAW’ would end this hundred billion dollar gift certificate by the left and some Republicans. It would lower classroom size, halt the multiculturalism that is destroying our school performance and return some sanity to our laws of immigration enforcement.

As an example Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has a miserable enforcement grade of "C-". He was out to erase E-Verify, under fund the border fence from the beginning of the Democratic administration. He is also solely to blame from the earliest vote to halt the incomprehensible theft of illegal aliens stealing $4.6 billion dollars in child tax credits, when most of the children have no residence in the United States. This is bar far the most disgusting state of affairs and Congress has just woken up to the situation.

JUDICIAL WATCH is a public watchdog group Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law. They uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities. Finally ALIPAC informs the public about the coming nightmare of OVERPOPULATION that is already exhibiting itself in our deteriorating infrastructure. TELL YOU’RE POLITICIANS YOU HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE IF THEY PRESS FOR ANY MORE ARMNESTIES, YOU CAN REACH THEM AT THE FEDERAL CLEARING PHONE CENTER AT 202-224-3121.

Join multiple millions of TEA PARTY members and don’t let the Socialist drive us into the dark ages again? We must be very vigilant as these elections in California, and some of the other 50 states as non citizens are voting and will again, including the general election.

SAY NO PRO –ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LIBERAL SOCIALIST--SANCTUARY CITY—OR BEING HOODWINKED BY GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN OR ANY STATE GOVERNOR MORE TAXES, TO SUPPORT ILLEGAL MIGRANT, IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR FAMILIES. GO HOME, LET THERE OWN COUNTRIES PAY FOR THEIR NEEDS AND NOT A FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR U.S. TAXPAYERS

Every American state should take a page from the state of Missouri, who denies they have any illegal aliens in their midst. The "Show Me" state has once again shown us how it should be done? There wants to be more publicity and disclosure concerning what Missouri has done; so, let's pass this around the country. Incidentally, Missouri is not running a deficit as with California, Nevada and other pro-illegal immigration states?

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri.

In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri. And so NO individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was approved requiring the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to validate the immigration status of all person arrested, inform the federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have admittance to taxpayer’s benefits such as food stamps and health care through the state’s Health net. In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri’s public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States.

In Missouri, all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT consciously awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.

So, while Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, South Carolina, Florida has made national news for policing laws, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this inexplicable issue - but on a step-by-step basis. States as Florida are waiting on the outcome of the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Arizona’s cry for help, from their crippling financial immigration occupation?

The state of Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in the state and they will certainly NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

How more insane can this be, when they are already running a huge deficit, by giving illegal aliens welfare, food stamps, health care in the form of MediCAL, Section 8 housing and a education for their children to K-12, although this isn’t true as they are passing laws so these students can appropriate state tax payer dollars for college. Many of educated U.S. born children cannot get into college, as they cannot afford the tuition fees.

Not many Americans have comprehended that if; IF Congress passed an amendment of ‘THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP BILL’, there wouldn’t be any more open door of instant citizenship for their children. The 400.000 children who are smuggled through entry ports would no longer qualify for instant citizenship, thereby disabling to some extent unfunded court mandates. It would not be that feasible to bring their unborn child, here unless one parent was a citizen. If enacted the ‘BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP LAW’ would end this hundred billion dollar gift certificate by the left and some Republicans. It would lower classroom size, halt the multiculturalism that is destroying our school performance and return some sanity to our laws of immigration enforcement.

As an example Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has a miserable enforcement grade of "C-". He was out to erase E-Verify, under fund the border fence from the beginning of the Democratic administration. He is also solely to blame from the earliest vote to halt the incomprehensible theft of illegal aliens stealing $4.6 billion dollars in child tax credits, when most of the children have no residence in the United States. This is bar far the most disgusting state of affairs and Congress has just woken up to the situation.

JUDICIAL WATCH is a public watchdog group Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law. They uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities. Finally ALIPAC informs the public about the coming nightmare of OVERPOPULATION that is already exhibiting itself in our deteriorating infrastructure. TELL YOU’RE POLITICIANS YOU HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE IF THEY PRESS FOR ANY MORE ARMNESTIES, YOU CAN REACH THEM AT THE FEDERAL CLEARING PHONE CENTER AT 202-224-3121.

Join multiple millions of TEA PARTY members and don’t let the Socialist drive us into the dark ages again? We must be very vigilant as these elections in California, and some of the other 50 states as non citizens are voting and will again, including the general election.

SAY NO PRO –ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LIBERAL SOCIALIST--SANCTUARY CITY—OR BEING HOODWINKED BY GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN OR ANY STATE GOVERNOR MORE TAXES, TO SUPPORT ILLEGAL MIGRANT, IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR FAMILIES. GO HOME, LET THERE OWN COUNTRIES PAY FOR THEIR NEEDS AND NOT A FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR U.S. TAXPAYERS

Every American state should take a page from the state of Missouri, who denies they have any illegal aliens in their midst. The "Show Me" state has once again shown us how it should be done? There wants to be more publicity and disclosure concerning what Missouri has done; so, let's pass this around the country. Incidentally, Missouri is not running a deficit as with California, Nevada and other pro-illegal immigration states?

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri.

In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri. And so NO individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was approved requiring the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to validate the immigration status of all person arrested, inform the federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have admittance to taxpayer’s benefits such as food stamps and health care through the state’s Health net. In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri’s public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States.

In Missouri, all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT consciously awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.

So, while Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, South Carolina, Florida has made national news for policing laws, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this inexplicable issue - but on a step-by-step basis. States as Florida are waiting on the outcome of the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Arizona’s cry for help, from their crippling financial immigration occupation?

The state of Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in the state and they will certainly NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.
