ILLINOIS WITHDRAWS FROM SECURE COMMUNITIES

Rate this Entry

Despite DHS' controversial claim that withdrawal is not an option, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn sent a letter to Janet Napolitano yesterday stating the state is withdrawing from the information sharing program. The governor noted that nearly a third of all individuals deported under the program were never convicted of a crime.


Meanwhile, Illinois' Senate voted Wednesday to pass a state version of the DREAM Act that would create a privately funded scholarship program for students without status who were brought to the US while children.

    I wish these people worry at least a bit about kids who are in status but waiting for years. Dems and Republicans both suck when it comes to immigration.

    SHOCK AND AWE !! - INDIA MIDDLE CLASS TO BE 3X USA POPULATION IN LESS THAN 15YRS



    NEW DELHI: Nearly 70% of India's population could be middle class within 15 years if the country's economy posts sustained growth, a report by the Manila-based Asian Development has said.

    These structural shifts in the pattern of global demand mean that Asia's growth can rely increasingly on the markets of developing Asia rather than those of Europe, Japan or North America, the report said.

    If Asian middle class consumers can substitute for those in advanced economies, the Asian countries will become major exporters to each other, emulating Europe. European countries are significant exporters, but largely to each other, with Eurozone exports growing 4.5% a year since 20005, notwithstanding the recent recession. Similarly, all Asian countries could benefit from rapid intra-regional growth without excessive reliance on the consumer markets of Europe or North America.

    "Today, India has a tiny middle class by global standards. But if it continues its growth, 70% of the Indian population could be middle class within 15 years," the ADB the report said.

    The Indian economy, Asia's third-largest has been growing above 8% and has contributed significantly to rising prosperity. The rapid economic expansion has also attracted the attention of global companies and investors, many of whom have set up shop in the country.

    The ADB report says that Asia rise will be led by China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, and Thailand.

    By 2050 their share in population is expected to fall to 73% of Asia, while the share of GDP rises to 90%. These seven economies alone will account for 45% of global GDP. Their average per capita income of $45,800 (purchasing power parity) would be 25% higher than the global average of $36,600. In 2010 these seven economies had a combined total population of 3.1 billion (78% of Asia) and a GDP of $14.2 trillion (87%of Asia).

    This is a clear indication that sooner to what many political analysts were expecting, States across the Union are taking unilateral steps regarding immigration reform. The trend tends to confirm that California and New York may be next ones in implementing their own immigration legislation respectively.

    Since US Congress has become an irrelevant institution dealing with government affairs at this point, it is fair to assert that the Executive branch will be the one taking the entire responsibility of fixing the current immigration system.

    As stated before, immigration is not longer an isolated issue; instead, it is part of a more complex socio-economic-geopolitical and judicial scheme. The United States is experiencing extraordinary changes in many fronts, specially the economy: massive unemployment (many prestigious economists estimate that the REAL number is approaching 20%), uncontrollable spending, humongous government debt, upcoming hyperinflation, increasing costs to sustain the ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya, etc.

    Most likely the Obama Administration is waiting for clear signals that the economy is on the verge of total collapse in order to take decisive action (as soon as the Dollar loses its status as the world's reserve currency, ordinary Americans will desperately beg for any solution).

    Consider once again these paragraphs extracted from the National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51 (issued by President George W. Bush and published on 05/09/2007):

    Purpose

    (1) This directive establishes a comprehensive national policy on the continuity of Federal Government structures and operations and a single National Continuity Coordinator responsible for coordinating the development and implementation of Federal continuity policies. This policy establishes "National Essential Functions," prescribes continuity requirements for all executive departments and agencies, and provides guidance for State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector organizations in order to ensure a comprehensive and integrated national continuity program that will enhance the credibility of our national security posture and enable a more rapid and effective response to and recovery from a national emergency.

    Definitions

    (2) In this directive:

    (b) "Catastrophic Emergency" means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions;

    DUE TO NATIONAL SECURITY CONCERNS, THE ONGOING ECONOMIC UPHEAVAL AND CONGRESS' INABILITY TO PASS AN IMMIGRATION REFORM, President Obama will issue pretty soon an Executive Order granting some sort of legal protection to millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States based on certain prerequisites and requirements: most likely a renewable work permit while mandating these individuals to register in DHS database and the Selective Service System as well.

    Incorrect reasoning, debate and debunk with solid arguments against the statement(s) that seem to annoy you.

    Most of the participants in this forum are indeed foreigners who are not acquainted on how the Federal government works; for the ignorant masses of this country it is understandable to remain in such brutish state but it is unacceptable for foreigners who have decent level of education to ignore these facts. Paradoxically their postings typically fall into a Cartesian circle, like blame the Republicans or the Democrats, racism, next presidential election, etc.

    Seems that many of these guys are more concerned on how to expedite their H-1 visas instead of focusing their intellect on REAL ISSUES THAT ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED TO IMMIGRATION.

    Too bad that nobody in this blog so far has been capable of grasping the repercussions of National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51 (to be implemented pretty soon)...perhaps when Martial Law is officially declared in the United States these people will finally comprehend that living in the USA is not an enjoyable experience at all.

    I don't get it. How long will the Congress just do lip service with Immigration reform and get away with it. I mean it is a job and they get paid for it. right? wonder if I would survive a month at my work by doing that with my projects. Every 3-6 months I hear the same thing - "We are deeply committed ..blah blah. We should all work together to fix the broken...". It is this that sounds like broken - a broken record - that keeps playing the same things time and again!!!

    Is not that but you posted it and I doubt that most visitors of the blog have not read your same post. But hey as I said if you feel the need to repeat it over and over more power to you. I just do not think is adding anything new to the discussion of the different topics. You are not exchanging a new idea or point....
