Gutierrez On The Mat

We applaud Congressman Gutierrez's principled support of
immigration reform
by his threatened "No" vote on the health care bill.  "Am I going
to vote for the proposal as it is currently formulated? No."
"Gutierrez and some members of the Hispanic Caucus are also
threatening not to support the Obama health plan because the
legislation would not allow illegal immigrants to buy health
insurance with their own money in the new federal exchanges that
would be created in the plan." We urge supporters of immigration
in Congress to try to extract explicit public promises from
President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid that
they will take up Comprehensive Immigration Reform as soon as the
health care issue is out of the way.  The time to act is now.

    With regard to ID's comment on the anti-immigrant provisions in the current health care reform bill which are causing members of the Hispanic caucus to threaten to vote against it, ID appears to be asking the caucus members, in effect, to take a "leap of faith" by supporting the bill in return for a promise by the White House and the Democratic Congressional leadership to take up CIR after health care reform, with the obnoxious anti-immigrant provisions, is passed.

    I wouldn't call that a "leap of faith". It is more like a leap off the cliff.

    Like any computer function it takes time to remove the bugs. Nationally known PC products have problems? Even the greatest programs have inconsistencies with new versions appearing as they are revised and upgraded. Same is with E-Verify that is undergoing a continuous revision. I make no excuses that I have bombarded the internet with my blogs. To keep the American people aware that the open border extremists, use there pressures to demonize or at the least compromise E-Verify. Unlike wealthy parasite corporate owners the shrinking middle class doesn't have the resources to fight back against this incredible decades-long sedition. Those who wish to destroy E-Verify use are well financed by a huge compendium of organizations that have many reasons to remove it from immigration enforcement. It's a repeat performance in announcing that the ordinary people who gain an advantage of making E-Verify as a permanent tool. Do not let these adverse organizations demoralize you. Already Homeland Security is working on the fraudulent ID glitch. Photo identification is being added, with other advanced tools.

    It is against dark forces who not only want the free movement of cheap labor settled in America, but they also want the US population to pay for corporate welfare it represents. Corporate welfare being that many of our politicians are complicit in, to keeping the borders open no matter what? If decades of administrations wanted to halt the unceasing invasion of illegal immigrants, why have they not made illegal entry a criminal offense? Why is it not a felony? Illegal immigration would never have grown on this massive scale that is negatively connected with job loss for Americans. Another quest why the preposterous lie that any woman who crosses the border with intent to have their baby here. That was originally meant for the emancipation of the civil war slaves. As yet hasn't been rescinded, but distorted by the Liberal bench? Same with the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act that always faltered?

    WHY MAKE IT THE LAW OF THE LAND--IF IT'S NOT GOING TO BE FULLY ENFORCED? These are the questions demanding answers from every federal and state representative of the people at 202-224-3121? Have any of us considered, that the US taxpayer would possibly paying less taxes, if states like the SANCTUARY STATE OF CALIFORNIA, NEW YORK were not emptying our pockets with entitlement programs for illegal alien families? Take for instance the document you pass to the immigration/customs agent as a tourist, student or any other visitor. Why bother when there is no way to detect, who has left this nation or have just disappeared into the landscape? Most of the time, the airport staff, ferry, passenger forget to ask or don't even care? You will only find these answers at NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIAL WATCH or by surfing the Internet?

    There is not enough room in this commentary to list the benefits to illegal aliens, including the child income tax reimbursement? Just ask Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich of Los Angeles, who according to him $50 million in welfare benefits (CALWORKS + Food Stamp's) for the month of January 2010 alone. Yes! And that just the very tip of the financial iceberg, extracted from your income. Hundreds of pro-sovereignty groups will relay the information, of the billions of dollars given to illegal immigrant families. Now they want to further the outrage, by giving millions of illegal families a free ride to citizenship? Should a new amnesty past, what makes you think that future administrations will hold back the next tidal wave of people? How much more money do you think this Amnesty or following waves of illegal immigration will cost you?

    THINK! Can anybody offer a reason why they haven't stationed the Nation Guard along the border, especially now with the incessant criminal drug war taking more lives of American citizens? The US Border Patrol has limited personnel and even the border Sheriff's has limited deputies to keep the national line safe? Every day it gets worse and our government seem almost nonchalant to the battles raging on both sides. The National Guard should be armed and have the right to protect US citizens, who live along the border and terrorized by the criminal as well as illegal aliens crossing their land. My question how come we pour massive resources into Iraq and Afghanistan, when our border remains easy access to anybody?

    Returning to E-Verify will be shortly a 99.9 percent effective and we shouldn't listen to Sen. Schumer, Sen. Graham, or others who are blemished, such as Sen. Reid, Majority speaker Reid, Sen. McCain and a large obnoxious grab-bag of others.Many are now hesitating because they have been caught red-handed, as being the puppets of corporate welfare. Hearth Care reform could be distributed to millions of Americans, if only our legislators denied any government entitlements to (ANCHOR BABIES) with instant citizenship, who are the "Anchor" for the whole family to reside here. New legitimized immigrants could sponsor, millions of direct family members including those who are already medical patients? They will become the American taxpayer's extra financial baggage.

    If you cannot see a silent conspiracy to keep importing desperately poor people, when we should instead demand from Washington only those of superior skills, who will not become a taxpayers extra mouth to feed. The real criminal is the business man, protected by corrupt Washington insiders, who refuse to fully fund such programs as REAL ID ACT, THE SAVE ACT, which contain E-Verify, the local police 287 (g) and the dwindling ICE raids. A 24 hour hot-line should be implemented for law abiding citizens to report irregularities in work and tax records, with perhaps a small reward. Just as the bridge to nowhere, the fence was compromised from the start of construction. Just as the federal government have ignored states, counties and cities that have proclaimed they are refuge for illegal aliens.

    Not only are they breaking government law, but as Los Angeles Order 40, has allowed criminal aliens to maim and kill innocent citizens. Even in the rural neighborhoods that once didn't have to lock their doors, find they are no longer defended from foreign nationals who are now a large percentage of cell-block inmates. We have our own citizen habitual criminal population. Why are states like California spending money they don't have on an expanding crime rate from illegal aliens? We can all bury our heads in the sand and listen to the repetitive lies of open border politicians, who have cheated their oath to protect the principles of the US Constitution? It is "THE PEOPLES" obligation and right, to stop this travesty of immigration laws?

    Like most ordinary Americans today, I have a mortgage up-in the air, car payment and feeding my family from my pensions. How much money does the IRS take from my family to educate foreign children, incarcerate their parents or all the other welfare programs that are intentionally hidden from US citizens and residents? This is not a multilingual nation; it is a nation under one flag that has flourished through many wars, downturns and the allowance of welcoming--LEGAL--immigration. We do not need millions of illegal immigrants brandishing foreign flags, demanding their rights to stay here in national rallies, when they violated our sovereign laws to begin with?

    With regard to the expression of anti-immigrant paranoia on this page by Brittanicus (a pseudonym which may suggest which country the writer would like immigrants to the US to come from, or at least what skin color he would like them to have), has ID given any thought to reinstating the previous 300 word limit on letters? While any and all opinions, including those with which readers like myself may strongly disagree, are certainly welcome in the ID letters section, monotonous, interminable hate rants can become quite tedious for anyone to have to wade through.

    What are they going to do about the families that need there other loved one here? what about the children that dont have there parents together?

    What are they going to do about that? we need them back together. if they have issues then put them on probation to prove that they belong here. If they miss up them you have already gave them there chance and you then send them back its only fair. Besides if you so it the right way, they make you wait a long time and all that time has been wasted on waiting. When they can be here with there families. Am I right or wrong? Just because they dont have papers dosent mean that they are not good people. Everybody needs a second chance. Please help the families.

    Thank you.

    If I could I would like to talk to Obama myself, so that him can tell me what he would like to do or for him to tell me how is he going to help me with my boys with no father here. Wait until my boys are 21 and then they can see there father here. By that time the boys will not need him that much because they will be grown. It count when they are small.

    I think Immigration reform is imperative. It seems to me that the current system offers those following the procedure to immigrate the right way a BIG price to pay in terms of unnecessary waiting without the slightest idea as to how long. I am referring to the so-called "immediate relative" cases supposed to be processed faster. I think that in every process with a logical data backing, applicants in every visa category should be able to know how long they have to wait so that they can organize stuff the right way.

    The whole process is like leaping in the dark! My wife and I got separated in August 2008 whilst returning from a mission trip to Indonesia. She got pregnant there and due to some unavoidable inconveniences, she had to return to the States while I return to my country, Ghana. Our son is now 13 months but I have not held him in my arms. The most "hard-to-understand" part of the whole drama is that my case was completed by the National Visa Center early November 2009. I have called several times to know when I could be scheduled for interview only for them to tell me they don't know when...until now! My wife is a US citizen. I can't find a job here not because I don't have appreciable academic background, but that employers need at least two years commitment from me. I have three Bachelor's and a Master's Degree to be competitive in a highly competitive employment market, but the immigration thing has been a hindrance to my finding a job as I don't want to make any unreasonable commitment that will further separate my family and me. The point is this: if the procedure provides a time as to when it can be done or at least a reasonable time-frame, one would be able to use that as a measuring stick against which to plan. This drama must stop.
