If It Isn’t “Amnesty, Immunity Or A Path To Citizenship,” What Is It?

by lewwaters

June 15, 2012, not exactly a “day that will live in infamy,” but an ignominious day just the same as Barack Obama, apparently believing he is a King or Dictator and not an elected temporary leader, took upon himself to completely ignore the will of the American people and Congress by declaring certain illegal aliens under the age of 30 will no longer be deported.

That citizens have been opposed and congress has voted against such moves towards amnesty have been completely ignored as Obama stated,

“This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix.”

It isn’t a “fix” at all and contrary to what he says, it is indeed amnesty and immunity. What else could it be but amnesty and immunity?

Democrats pulled this nonsense back in 1986 when Republican Ronald Reagan was president, blaming the failure on him and not accepting any responsibility themselves, even though they wrote it and passed it as Democrats held majorities in both the House and Senate.

Expected to lessen illegal immigration, it had the opposite effect as now others saw that our laws mean nothing and there would be no enforcement and eventually, if they waited it out, they too would be declared immune to our laws.

Advocates For ILLEGAL Aliens Upset With Commissioner Mielke

by lewwaters

Finally, a Clark County Commissioner steps up and addresses a hard issue that has been hovering over us all, taxpayer paid service for ILLEGAL immigrants.

At a May 27, 2009 Joint Board of Health – Public Health Advisory Council Meeting, newly elected Commissioner Tom Mielke called into question the cost of providing non-emergency services to those in the country ILLEGALLY. Mielke said,

If we don’t have those Social Security numbers, I would like to know who those individuals are who we are serving that are here illegally, and why we serve them and help them in their health.”

The point about using Social Security Numbers is a bit squeaky, but he made an honest effort to begin a dialogue on just what the costs are in providing non-emergency services to those here ILLEGALLY.

Both of the other two commissioners, Marc Boldt and Steve Stuart disagree with Mielke and say they would not support such a move. Stuart prefers to not even discuss is unless,

he saw evidence that illegal immigrants create a ‘huge problem’ for the county budget.”

Perhaps Commissioner Stuart is unaware that Clark County may be facing an $18 Million budget deficit before the end of this budget cycle.

Stuart being a Democrat, I imagine he sees no problem in budget deficits, as he would just raise taxes somewhere.

Marc Boldt attempted to take a middle of the road position by saying,

I think we should be concerned about it, but it’s an issue that I think should be handled at our borders. It’s not an issue that I think even can be resolved here. …If the federal boys and girls don’t have enough guts to decide the question, please don’t ask us local folks to do it.”

But commissioner, it is our local taxes paying for this non-emergency healthcare. It is Clark County facing the possibility of an $18,000,000 budget deficit that would have to be made up by Clark County Citizens, who are already facing hardships from State and Federal increases.

This is not a fence straddling matter.

Not unsurprisingly, little time passed before advocates for ILLEGAL immigrants began calling Tom Mielke a “racist” because he opposes services to those in our country ILLEGALLY. Although Tom mentioned no specific race or nationality, advocates for Latino ILLEGAL immigrants began their mournful wail of ‘racism, racism’ wherever it would be heard.

Vancouver resident in the League of United Latin American Citizens, Maria Rodriguez-Salazar immediately contacted media to complain that Commissioner Mielke’s words were

implicitly racist and threaten to provoke violence against Latinos.”

I guess any time we aren’t ready to bend down and kiss ILLEGAL immigrants butts we are threatening violence now, it seems.

Somehow, though, I bet she sees no racism or bigotry in words spoken by current nominee for the Supreme Court Sonia Sotomayer when she said,

I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Of course, the fact that Sotomayor is the daughter of Puerto Rican immigrants would have no bearing on any decision denying racism in that comment, right?

Eulalia Soto-Esquivel, a Vancouver attorney who boasts of coming to America ILLEGALLY, but gained “legal status” under the 1987 Amnesty Program, that was supposed to end our ILLEGAL immigration problem, said,

We are part of this community. During school, I received financial aid because I needed it. Now I am a business owner. I am giving back.”

As an attorney in immigration and family law, I am left to ponder just who and what is she “giving back.”

What both ILLEGAL advocates miss, or intentionally ignore, is that we Americans welcome immigrants into our country, provided the follow the law and come LEGALLY. Many of us descended from immigrants who came through Ellis Island at one time. But they came in LEGALLY and not all were accepted, either.

What I see here is just one more example of playing the ‘race card’ to further your agenda, something the leftists in our country are notorious for. We must begin standing up to these fabricated charges of “racism” every time we disagree with a minority or question their position on matters of grave concern.

We are not racists to expect our laws be upheld!

Encouraging people from any country to sneak across our borders invites disease, higher unemployment and allows those sneaking in to become a secondary slave class, being taken advantage of by unscrupulous business owners who do not want to pay minimum wage to LEGAL workers.

If they come in LEGALLY, they are welcomed and provided the protection of law by being out in the open.

I really have to question an attorney, an ‘officer of the court,’ who would advocate laws on the books be ignored and disobeyed.

Mielke is right, we must take steps to curtail the expense of ILLEGAL immigrants on our community. Marni Storey, the county’s public health services manager may say, “the county’s ‘fairly insignificant’ population of illegal immigrants is too small to account for the programs unprofitability,” but it’s obvious she doesn’t shop at Ross, Winco or Fred Meyers if she believes the ILLEGAL population is “fairly insignificant.”

In closing allow me to say to those advocates for ILLEGAL immigration, when you come in to blast me as a ‘racist’ too, just be aware that I am married to a lovely Hispanic lady who has two beautiful Hispanic daughters that I love as my own and I am sponsoring a LEGAL immigrant for citizenship.

So take your charge of ‘racism’ and put it where the sun don’t shine! It won’t wash here.

Latina Lista

by leaortiz

Here is a link to a site that has angered me with their lies about conservatives and endorsing illegals.

http://www.latinalista.net/palabrafinal/2009/01/republican-antics-proves-if-party-disapp.html

I post my commment below because I am most certain it will not be plublished by the Latina Lista. I am also a latina, a non-hyphenated American and do not join the group think of this very prejudiced group of illegal advocates.

You are wrong. I am not ashamed to tell you that you are wrong either. This culture you are speaking of does not embrace America, or American thinking. You cling to your Spanish and force your children to speak it. Don’t tell me you don’t because I know better. You refuse to assimilate to our culture you cling to your Hispanic culture. You think we should do what you want. Amazing isn’t it?

When laws are broken there are consequences, face it. I am an American of Mexican descent.

Creating subcultures in America does not bring this nation together, and what are doing here is dividing it all the more.

Oh but I do recognize illegal aliens when I see them. No they don’t speak English, their children speak for them. They remain in a self imposed bubble.

You are doing no favors by trying to bring down another group of people that are Americans. It is plain that you don’t appreciate being here, by demanding rights you as a non citizen don’t deserve.

As far as lies and name calling. I have gone face to face with these illegals saying I am a racist, me of Mexican descent because I want our borders secured and our already burdened financial situation to stop being depleted by illegals.

Amazing that you will come here and use our freedom of speech. Will you do the same and fight for this country? Will you lay down you life for this country? OR will you continue to help with these advocacy groups to help more illegals to find out how to get aid to feed their children, get food stamps and how to send money back to other countries and how to bring more of their families here and continue this crazy cycle. This country is suffering financially. Can anyone figure out why?????

This kind of propoganda and seeking a sympathetic ear just angers me. It angers a multitude of Americans as well.

MEChA Distorts Purpose Of I-409

by lewwaters

mecha-1As most know, Clark County Conservative is one of the supporters of the proposed Initiative 409, a measure intended to encourage Washington State Law Enforcement and Businesses to uphold and enforce our current immigration laws throughout the state.

The heaviest opposition is coming from Hispanic/Latino groups who seem to encourage as many ILLEGAL immigrants to come here as possible.

Some students from Washington State University in Pullman expressed their displeasure with the proposed initiative in the Universities paper, the Daily Evergreen in October and as expected, distorted the purpose of I-409 and pulled on people’s heartstrings.

Students handed out flyers prominently displaying, No to I-409, Yes to Human Rights.”

One is left wondering, if they really are so concerned about “Human Rights,” why do they not encourage the country of Mexico to treat their citizens better instead of sending them north?

Where are their protests of the mistreatment of Hispanic/Latino citizens by a corrupt government and the wealthier south of us that causes so many from that nation, to speak of just one, to ILLEGALLY enter our country?

Adriana Sanchez, MEChA co-chairwoman said,

I see I-409 as a discriminating act, it is denying opportunity to the less fortunate. I hope people look outside the box and realize the negative effects this initiative could have on children such as denying them high school education or the negative effects of denying health care to those who need it or the cost to produce productivity. It’s inhumane. If the proposal goes forward, it could be interpreted to say that children illegally in the U.S. could not attend high school, and that anyone over the age of 14 would be ineligible for medical care.”

Ms. Sanchez, with all due respect, no one is denied medical care in an emergency case in this nation. Still, U.S. taxpayers are all too often left holding the bills for such care, straining our already overburdened medical system and tax structure.

Those here ILLEGALLY cost our schools more as many must be instructed in the native language, many not desiring to assimilate to our culture by learning our language. We taxpayers must pay those costs, not the native countries.

Still, I must think back to my original statement, if these advocacy groups fought half as hard to improve conditions for those who feel they have a right to violate our laws in their native lands as they do here, would those who come here ILLEGALLY and operate “under the radar” even need our facilities and tax dollars?

I am left wondering too is Ms. Sanchez has ever looked up the very word she uses, ILLEGAL, in a dictionary.

Readers too might be interested in just who and what MEChA really is.

MEChA stands for Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, roughly translated, the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlán, considered by some to be an umbrella organization of radical Chicano student groups. It was founded in 1969, during a period of much leftist unrest in America. Aztlán is the territory in the Southwestern United States and West Coast that America purchased from Mexico in 1848, after defeating them in war and paying $15,000,000.00 as per the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

MEChA founders feel the mythical land of Aztlán belongs to them, not the United States of America. Their goal seems to be their liberation from the ‘White occupiers’ of the Western United States.

They claim their desire on the first site linked in the paragraph above as,

A nation autonomous and free – culturally, socially, economically, and politically- will make its own decisions on the usage of our lands, the taxation of our goods, the utilization of our bodies for war, the determination of justice (reward and punishment), and the profit of our sweat.”

From the second link above, we find,

MEChA was founded on the principles of self-determination for the liberation of our people,” and “the affirmation that we are Indigenous people to this land by placing our movement in Aztlan, the homeland of all peoples from Anahuak.”

See also MEChA National Constitution (pdf) and MEChA Philosophy.

Audio of some of their statements over the years, mostly through the 1990’s, can be heard at this Snopes.com article. Note, they are mostly taken from California events, not Washington State, but the goals are the same.

Summing this all up is the words of Margarita Esquivel, co-chairwoman of the Chicano/a Latino/a Student Alliance in the Daily Evergreen article,

It is we who determine how our state is being governed and the policies that are enacted which will effect our future.”

Did Ms. Esquivel forget about the rest of us?”
