1.  COMMENT


Lip Service


The Hill
http://ow.ly/1l583
reports "The South Carolina Republican [Senator Graham] had no
kind words for the president's efforts on the topic, accusing him
of ignoring immigration and paying lip service only for temporary
political reasons. Graham laughed off the president's claim that
he's been 'unwavering" in his support for immigration overhaul.
"This idea that the president has been unwavering on immigration
doesn't really pass the smell test.' "


We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by

(a) Immigrants And Bankruptcy


Kathleen Lord-Black write "Long-held and negative cultural views
of bankruptcy and insolvency may make your client reluctant to
discuss financial issues with you or with bankruptcy counsel, but
a proactive discussion regarding the relevant facts may save both
the client's immigration case and preserve his or her financial
freedom."
http://www.ilw.com/articles/2010,0315-black.shtm
http://kathleenlord.com/


(b) Immigration, Political Realignment, And The Demise Of
Republican Political Prospects


James G. Gimpel for the Center for Immigration Studies writes
"Between 1980 and 2008, 25.2 million people were granted
permanent residency (green cards) by the United States."
http://www.ilw.com/articles/2010,0315-gimpel.shtm

(c) Bloggings On PERM Labor Certification


Joel Stewart writes "In summary, both a PERM case and an I-140
Immigrant Visa Petition may be revoked for a material error.
Whether a non-material error can support a revocation or
invalidation may depend on the type of error made. Even if the
application or petition is revoked, a new application or petition
may be refiled with the corrected information."

    Lindsey Graham disputes President Obama's statement that he has been unwavering on immigration. Senator Graham is wrong. President Obama, or at least his top officials, have been unwavering on immigration - against it.

    I want our President Mr. Obama to start working in this direction by offering some relief to legal immigrants especially to those who are technically sound and paying high taxes in our country, I repeat LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and I am sure positive response will start from all over the country.

    For interested parties a new caucus is being formed called , "RECLAIM AMERICAN JOBS.? The American people need to fight back against the illegal immigration occupation, before it too late. Our nation is suffocating under the relentless invasion, that our politicians have ignored for decades. For reasons beyond most peoples understanding, they have blocked any successful way of restriction of foreign nationals that have swarmed into every community in this nation. The numbers from government sources and other biased sources proclaim there are only 10 million, with numbers dwindling. However nobody in there right mind believes these numbers, as they have drudged up consistently over the last 10 years ago, without any change.. Tuscon Border Agency says for every one person, that is apprehended 9 disappear into our country. My guess by that, the numbers are infinitely far more. In the neighborhood of 20 to 30 million. 8 million illegal workers at the least escaping detection in the job market and that's why we need E-Verify?

    Perhaps that is why our government has sided with the business sector, to just identify--ONLY--new hires. Therefore, millions are not discovered, because they are already working somewhere.undetected. Federal, state county and city don't want you to know, who has already slipped past any enforcement process. I suggest that's why E-Verify has become a menace to corporate welfare. But E-Verify had gained plenty of momentum, and the Democratic leadership led by Sen. Reid, Speaker Pelosi couldn't slip it past public awareness or popularity amongst HONEST BUSINESSMAN. Even Republicans cannot shift the whole blame on Democrats, as equal indifference must be attributed to both politico's..

    Now we the American people must contend with another Amnesty, Assuming President Obama can force it through. but who pays for the millions already here, or those who try to slip past before the signing. Another amnesty just means more will try to get here, thinking a third will be past at some future date. Not just the overworked border agency, but expired tourist and students at airports. So much is involved in processing new immigrants, that the whole weight falls on the taxpayers. Once here they can sponsor more family members, including those who would spend uncompensated time in emergency rooms. Another burden for luckless taxpayers. Just read the predicament the Sanctuary State of California. http://mexicanoccupation.blogspot.com/2010/03/shocking-reality-of-los-angeles-under.html

    This really is the time when jobless American or any citizen and legal resident needs be a member of RECLAIM AMERICAN JOBS caucus. Only together can we stop this travesty of our immigration laws? Whatever our party consideration, we need to make it clear to all politicians that America belongs to THE PEOPLE-not to the open border demented fools, pariah businesses or the politicians themselves. There are three main enforcement tools within the United States. E-Verify, 287(g) local police alien enforcement and ICE raids. Reps. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Gary Miller (R-CA) and Sue Myrick (R-NC) have formed the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus to raise public awareness of the connection between illegal immigration and unemployment. To pressure the Obama Administration to vigorously enforce the laws against the employment of illegal aliens, work to implement legislation that will protect U.S. jobs from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to make E-Verify mandatory) Working to defeat legislation that will put U.S. jobs at risk from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to defeat amnesty.) The Tea party movement have many objections to the Republican usurpers and the majority certainly don't agree with Dick Armey. But then Steve Poizner would be a great win for California, as he promised he would halt the draining of public entitlements to illegal aliens and give full reign to ICE to investigate and place in detention the millions of foreign families living illegally there. Certainly Governor Schwarzenegger did nothing and allowed this epidemic to spread statewide.

    Go to numbersusa.com to learn the ropes. Don't forget to call your Senator or Representative at 202-224-3121. Don't forget to give your state incumbent lawmaker an ultimatum; NO RE-ELECTION VOTE. We are a sympathetic people, but Americans must come first and any lawmaker who represents the illegal immigrant, must be kicked out of office. This is not mean-spirited, this is survival of our nation, our flag and our language. American jobs for American people. Learn about the rampant corruption at Judicialwatch.org. OVERPOPULATION is another hidden issue, that will cause major environmental problems by 2040.

    With regard to the RECLAIM AMERICAN JOBS comment in today's letters section, doesn't America already have more than enough anti-immigrant organizations spreading scare tactics about alleged overpopulation due to "swarms" of immigrants who are "stealing" American jobs? Maybe I have been reading and watching the news on a different planet from the one that the RECLAIM people live on, but I had the impression that America's current economic problems are in large part due to mismanagement and corruption on the part mainly 100 percent red blooded Wall Street bankers and corporate lobbyists, with very little, if any, help from immigrants, legal or illegal.

    But blaming immigrants for problems that are almost entirely Made in USA is, of course, always good fun and great blood sport for some folks, except, of course, when it destroys the lives of hundreds of thousands, or millions, of people whose only reason for coming to this country is to create a better life, feed their families, and contribute to our society and economy, just as immigrants have been doing in this country for more than two centuries, nativist organizations with the same mean-spirited goals as RECLAIM notwithstanding.
