1.* COMMENT


Alienating Latinos


An opinion piece in Washington Post
http://ow.ly/1eJB9
by an ally of 24 years of President Obama argues* "Obama must
lead the charge for immigration reform by telling Americans the
truth: that tough, fair and compassionate immigration reform is
necessary for America's economy and national security, and not
just for Latino voters. He must also, somehow, convince Latinos
that he really does feel their pain."


We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by
writing to mailto:editor@ilw.com.

2.* FOCUS


Proliferation of E-Verify


Tuesday, March 9 is the deadline for the Thursday, March 11 phone
session of "Employer Compliance For Experts" with speakers
Patrick Shen, Ronald "Alan" Atkinson, Don Crocetti, Cynthia
Lange, Priscilla H. Muhlenkamp, Michael Patrick, Shannon
Slattery, Jennifer Sultan and Allen Vanscoy. The curriculum is as
follows:


In today's heightened enforcement environment, the federal
government and an increasing number of state governments are
requiring employers to participate in E-Verify, an electronic
employment eligibility program.* Beginning September 8, 2009,
many federal contractors and their subcontractors are required to
begin using E-Verify.* In addition, the government is utilizing
sophisticated data-mining techniques to monitor employer usage
and to scrutinize employers' compliance with the complex terms of
participation. Program highlights include:
++ Obama Administration's emphasis on E-Verify and impact on
federal contractors
++ Trends among state legislation requiring use of E-Verify and
complications for employers with multi-state presence
++ Liabilities that may result from enforcement of new monitoring
and compliance regulations


Tuesday, March 9 is the deadline to sign up. For more info,

  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    Obama's problem is not merely that Latinos perceive him as being insensitive to their concerns about immigration. His problem is that he is giving into blatant racism and hatred against all immigrants, legal and illegal. If one reads the Washington Post article mentioned by ID, one can see that (on the Internet at least) that there were 153 comments in response to the article before the comments were mercifully closed.

    A sampling of these comments shows that the great majority of them were nothing more than the lowest kind of anti-Latino racism, little different from the comments about African-Americans that could have been heard at a KKK convention 40 or 50 years ago (or even now). True, the venom in most of the WaPo website coments does not always mention Latinos specifically, but rather "illegal immigrants" or just "immigrants". However, everyone knows whom the people posting those vicious comments meant. These comments were not about blue-eyed, blond immigrants from Scandinavia.

    Obama and his immigration officials, like the Bush people before them, but to an even worse extent, are openly courting the racist vote on the immigration issue through their enforcement only policy of denying basic human rights to illegal immigrants and denying even the most routine visas to legal ones whenever possible. If anyone thinks that this kind of cynicism and cowardice is merely a "cerebral" stategy to be used by the Obama administration as a prelude to introducing immigration reform, I have a deal on a bridge across the Rio Grande that any one with such an idea might be interested in taking me up on.

    So an ally of President Obama argues "to fear the Latinos" and that he must lead the charge for immigration reform by telling Americans the truth: that tough, fair and compassionate immigration reform is necessary.

    But it is American Citizens that fear the economy and national security is at risk ... from illegals. I for one could go along with compassionate reform. But first "they" must first swear to help prevent any and all illegal entrants in the future. That help includes stopping abuse to the 14th amendment for anchor babies. Our country must get to a place where representation for illegal aliens is no longer needed.

    Obama made promises during his campaign that he has not as yet fulfilled. Some he will never fulfill (like sending 30,000 troops to Afghanistan instead of bringing the troops home). The immigration issue is a real problem for millions of undocumented aliens in the USA but it is not a problem the President can solve unless he cultivates bipartisan support. Unfortunately for the undocumented aliens the President cannot count on having any bipartisan support at this time, and it is doubtful that he will achieve such support in the future. We will have to wait for another president to tackle the issue since it is becoming painfully clear that Obama will be a one time president.
  4. Honza Prchal's Avatar
    Unusually, I get to defend President Obama against a letter writer. Contra Regina Alberty's assertion that Obama promised to abandon Afghanistan to its fate, Obama ran promising to pay attention to Afghanistan and escalate the war there, even proposing cross border raids into Afghanistan over Pakistan's objections. He waffled on his escalation once elected, but eventually fulfilled many of his promises to get tougher there.
    Roger Algase says Bush's people courted the racist vote and that "Obama and his immigration officials" are too. I wonder if this is a recognition by Mr. Algase that Bush took a huge risk trying to reform our immigration system. When he lost, he recognized his rejection on this issue by voters, and settled for trying to make legal business and national security related immigration easier while stepping up enforcement as American voters clearly wanted him to. Mr. Algase and I both wish the issue had been better presented, but I am pleased that he may be giving some credit where credit is due for at least making an effort.

    Could these be the last months before we lose our national sovereignty, OUR UNITY to the illegal immigration occupation on our soil? That approximately 20 to 30 million foreign nationals who could get AMNESTY? Getting clemency and an almost free pass to being on their way to citizenship? Even though the majority are using fraudulent ID to get work, not forgetting they illegally crossed the border or overstayed their entry visa? If President Obama forces through an AMNESTY, once legitimized these people can bring into this nation all their elderly, sick and mentally ill family members? Guess who pays for all those in the family reunification measure?

    MARK MY WORDS, THAT IF WE DON"T SHOW OUR OWN FORCEFULNESS ANOTHER AMNESTY WILL GET PASSED AND TAXPAYERS WILL GET THE BURDEN OF FINANCIALLY PAYING FOR THE AMNESTY PROCESSING, THE PENSIONS AND THE NEXT WAVES OF FOREIGN NATIONAL WHO WILL BE AT OUR DOOR. BEFORE AMNESTY IS SIGNED INTO LAW, MILLIONS MORE WILL TRY TO REACH AMERICA? GENERATIONS OF OUR GRANDCHILDREN ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR 2 FOREIGN WARS, WHY SHOULD WE PAY EVEN MORE FOR THE IMPOVERISHED OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

    Those of us who are avid patriotic Americans and see us slipping into a third world morass, loss of our unifying language. The first step is to bombard every legislator state and federal, demanding NO AMNESTY. Second step is to confront every lawmaker who pamper foreign nationals with the peoples entitlements and then make sure they don't get re-elected. Another step is to build on E-Verify, in-perpetuity that is mandated in detecting illegal alien workers. Every local, county and state police must be trained with the 287 (g) apprehension directive, under federal mandate to apprehend anybody they believe is an illegal immigrant on the streets and highways. ICE raid need to be stretched to the limit, so business owners understand they are not above the law and they can end-up behind prison bars. National Guard patrolling our borders along with more US Border patrol agents.

    Every law that comes down the pipeline must be taken advantage of, culminating in zero tolerance for foreign nationals. EVERY SANCTUARY CITY, COUNTY AND STATE POLICY MUST BE RESCINDED BY A FEDERAL ACT. On the web is a outspoken blogger who writes about the financial sinking of the SANCTUARY STATE OF CALIFORNIA. All Americans who strongly feel about the imminent danger to our society, the influx of indigent illegal alien families, needs to study these observations. Although this blog refers to mostly to the West coast, the illegal alien propagation is now become a nationwide scourge that vastly becoming a plague. Learn some stark truths at this website, not the lies and political distractions that makes us oblivious of the fiscal nightmares to come. GOOGLE-- http://mexicanoccupation.blogspot.com/2010/03/shocking-reality-of-los-angeles-under.html

    Are you aware that taxpayers in America subsidize other countries treasuries, with billions of dollars from illegal workers here? California loses billions of dollars annually from money transfers across the borders. CALIFORNIA IS BROKE, BUT ELECTED OFFICIAL KEEP PAYING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WELFARE, ANCHOR BABY ENTITLEMENTS. Thousands of People who contact me always ask why I have not authored my own blog. One ominous reason because I have a family and that I had already been threatened? I moved away from the illegal alien gang infested neighborhood of Los Angeles years back, but I do have family there still. Californians must demand E-Verify, even though its not perfect, it eventually become a strong arm of enforcement.

    ALREADY THERE ARE RUMORS WASHINGTON IS GOING TO COMPROMISE E-VERIFY- PROBABLY BY FOREIGN GOVERNMENT LOBBYIST INTERVENTION. Get mobilized at NUMBERSUSA and learn who is involved in corruption at JUDICIALWATCH. This is the only way we can save America from the Liberal progressives and the travesty of world government, without borders.
