Obama Prepares Schools for Migrant Kids

Full story at: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/215059-obama-prepares-schools-for-enrollment-of-migrant-children

California has picked up 3,909 migrant children that crossed the U.S.-Mexico border recently, according to the story.

Do you really think the invasion of illegal immigrant children will stop when the Democrats and Obama welcome the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT children?

How soon before the parents follow the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT children into the United States across the porous U.S.-Mexico border?

I think the sanctuary city advocates in San Jose should open up their homes to house the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT children. But then, of course, we taxpayers will still have to pay to educate these ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT children.

In my opinion, the United States CANNOT take in every immigrant that wants to come into the United States! That’s why we have immigration laws.

We want the “best and the brightest” from around the globe. We do not need to take everyone that is able to violate our borders or to stay after their visas expire.

How, in anyone’s wildest imagination, does allowing ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS entry into the United States help convince folks that our laws are to be followed, and/or respected? In other words, what does ignoring immigration laws do to respect for laws generally?

When authority figures, like city councilmembers and mayors, criticize Federal immigration laws, does that sound like the type of politician you want to promote to federal office, much less keep in city, county or state government?

How much respect for authority do the law-abiding folks have when the politicians ignore or chastise immigration laws?

Currently, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS come into the United States without health checks, without security checks, without jobs, without papers, without proof they can stay off welfare, without RESPECT FOR LAWS, and without a desire or need to even learn English. These are NOT the “best and the brightest!”

If the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS and elected officials can “pick n choose” which laws they feel like obeying, can lawful immigrants and U.S. citizens also “pick n choose” which laws they want to obey?

For example, why obey car pool lanes? Why obey the speed limits on the highways? Why bother to have car insurance? Why bother to get a driver’s license? Why bother to check potential employees for legal right to work in the United States?

If politicians “diss” immigration laws, why should anyone listen to the politicians on anything?

If politicians say they are obeying a higher moral code in allowing the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT invasion of our borders, then why have borders?

If politicians are so weak-willed and “willy-nilly” on supporting Federal laws, why should anyone obey the politicians that create city ordinances, county ordinances or state laws?

Double standard in play. Research your elected officials views and make a moral decision whether to dump your guy or gal.

I recommend a website that tells all. Find your politician’s view on any issue. It’s called Vote Smart. The website for Vote Smart: http://votesmart.org/

Baker’s Dozen List of San Jose’s Best

1. Loving, caring politicians.

2. Pothole-free streets and highways.

3. Plastic bag ban with accompanying paper bag fee, i.e., windfall profits for rich supermarkets.

4. Focus groups and think tanks on how to really solve problems rather than cutting and pasting other city ordinances, such as the plastic bag ban.

5. Politicians that love the low-income, elderly on social security, the working poor, the unemployed and the homeless in spite of the punishing paper bag fee laid onto them.

6. City’s support of mobile home parks and the refusal to let big developers come in and crush mobile home parks.

7. Population growth. San Jose is proud to grow over a million population. Doesn’t matter legal versus illegal immigrant. We love you all! Send for your friends.

8. What gang problem?

9. Graffiti sign cleanup on a sign by sign basis. Reading the graffiti keeps your mind off the potholes.

10. Affordable housing – Ha, Ha, Hah!

11. The ever-renewing 10-year plan to end homelessness.

12. Good training ground for police officers in order to staff other cities.

13. No recent politician doing jail time.

President Obama is a laughing stock.

Obama accuses Republicans of wasting taxpayer money on a lawsuit against him. A spendaholic chastising Republicans for wasting money is laughable, if not sheer madness.

Beg your pardon; how much does Obama waste on foreign trips and foreign aid? A lawsuit against Obama is chump change compared to the amount of money the United States wastes in flying the Obamas around the globe and in spending horrendous amount of taxpayers’ monies on foreign aid.

How much foreign aid? Just Google it on the Internet. In the meantime, a quick source of the 10 ten recipients of American foreign aid from ABC News story showing 2008 and 2012 amounts:

In case you don’t want to go to the ABC News story, Israel receives the most amount of U.S. foreign aid with 2012 amount of $3.075 Billion.

Israel’s aid was higher than Afghanistan. Israel’s aid was higher than Iraq’s. The 2012 five top recipients of U.S. foreign aid: Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Egypt, all over $1 BILLION each.

So with Obama worried about taxpayers paying for the Republican’s lawsuit against him, it shows he has no concept of money expenditures, in my opinion, when he questions taxpayers paying for a lawsuit against him.

On another note, Obama is allowing foreign aid in the billions of dollars to go to other nations, yet he and the Democrats refuse to secure our borders and deport illegal immigrants.

Long term impact of accepting everyone that crosses our border means we are not selecting the “best and the brightest” to enhance this nation.

With Democrats refusal to secure the borders and deport the illegal immigrants, we are receiving the “undocumented” that enter the United States without PAPERS, without jobs, without health checks, without security checks, without proof they can stay off welfare, without respect for American laws (immigration laws for sure), without respect for immigrants that entered our country with permission, and probably without a desire or need to learn English.

And guess who is going to pay education expenses for educating the mass invasion by illegal immigrant children? I also understand that federal taxpayer dollars are going to be used to house these illegal immigrant children.

With this wasteful expenditures by our government, I find the Obama argument of taxpayers paying for a lawsuit against him NOT persuasive.

I believe the lawsuit against President Obama is the best expenditure of funds I have seen in a long time.

Border agents say violent MS-13 recruiting at Arizona facility for new Central American arrivals

Border agents say violent MS-13 recruiting at Arizona facility for new Central American arrivals

Full story at http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/07/27/border-agents-say-violent-ms-13-recruiting-at-arizona-facility-for-new-central/?intcmp=latestnews

Not only does Arizona have stories, even Texas has problems with illegal immigrants in gangs. From story: “Texas state GOP Sen. Dan Patrick said earlier this week that roughly 100,000 illegally immigrants living in his state are gang members.”

California is another border state. And recent news stories of our San Jose and Santa Clara County supervisors encouraging cities and towns to take in illegal immigrant, quote “children,” makes one take a second look at our elected leaders in terms of “PUBLIC SAFETY”.

To San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, Vice-Mayor Madison Nguyen, Santa Clara County Supervisors Dave Cortese and Cindy Chavez, Congress members Zoe Lofgren and Michael Honda: “How many illegal immigrants reside in Sanctuary County Santa Clara County and Sanctuary City San Jose? How many are gang members?”

To the lawful legal immigrants, United States citizens and vacationers from around the globe: To me, the above questions to local politicians will probablly go unanswered as, for example, the city of San Jose seemingly doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the number of illegal immigrants living living in local neighborhoods. The local politicians seem to care more about the folks here illegally than the folks who respect our borders and our laws.

To the legal immigrants, U.S. citizens and tourists from around the globe visiting San Jose and Santa Clara County: “Since San Jose and Santa Clara County are sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants, how many new gang members are being recruited to be your new neighbors?”

In my personal view, the elected officials of San Jose and Santa Clara County seem more interested in protecting illegal immigrants that they do about respecting United States laws on immigration, the rule of law or on representing folks who are against illegal immigrants, especially those illegal immigrants with “a history of serious and violent crime” living in our midst.

By the way, how many illegal immigrants does San Jose support now and how many more in the future? Tens of thousands, I estimate, reside here now because of San Jose’s sanctuary city policies, yet there are over 4,000 homeless living in the streets. See something wrong with this picture?

500,000 illegal aliens reside in the bay area, and what city with a million population has sanctuary city policies where gang members would feel right at home? Bingo! You’re right! San Jose, California.

Remember this posting when San Jose and Santa Clara politicians speak of “PUBLIC SAFETY” especially around election time.

Does your school restrict clothing attire because of gang problems? I know of one San Jose public school that does. Would you feel safe if your local school tells you kids have to wear uniforms because coloring of clothing identifies gang affiliation? How does that make you feel about “PUBLIC SAFETY”?

If police can’t ask immigration status of folks they stop and when the Santa Clara County politicians refuse to send fingerprints of folks arrested and sitting in county jail to Immigration and Customs Enfrocement (ICE), the city and county are just giving lip service to the term “PUBLIC SAFETY”, in my opinion.

Dave Cortese on Public Safety

Dave Cortese is touting “Public Safety” on his bid for mayor of San Jose.

I remember Supervisor Cortese opting out of Secure Communities Program, which means that Santa Clara County is NOT co-operating with the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

It seems hypocritical, to me, for Mayoral candidate Dave Cortese to preach about “Public Safety” when Supervisor Cortese opted out of ICE’s Secure Communities Program. And to be honest, I don’t care his rationale for opting out of Secure Communities–he opted out. Period!

Who does the Secure Communities program target? ICE has stated that it “prioritizes the removal of criminal aliens, those who pose a threat to public safety, repeat immigration violators,” and “the most dangerous and violent offenders.” http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/just-facts/secure-communities-fact-sheet

Opting out of a program that checks fingerprints of folks already “sitting in jails” means we are checking fingerprints of folks already arrested for some reason or another. By opting out of Secure Communities, ICE has no notification of arrestees from Santa Clara County jail with a “history of serious and violent crime.”

Does opting out of Secure Communities make you feel safer?

Do you want a mayor preaching public safety but who opted out of a program that helps identify criminal illegal aliens, especially criminal illegal aliens with “a history of serious and violent crime?”

I support San Jose’s police officers (and fire fighters). I hate how San Jose’s elected leaders caused the police ranks to shrink. I hate how the police are instructed to ignore immigration status of folks they stop. I hate the attack against good law enforcement programs like the Secure Communities Program. I think sanctuary city status by San Jose is a slap in the face to legal immigrants, U.S. citizens, immigration LAW and to the officers on the beat.

I defend the rule of law. Law enforcement officers are a special breed and demand respect, whether they be city police officers or federal law enforcement officers. These law enforcement personnel are some of the “best and the brightest” people that serve this country. They deserve a mayor that respects them AND THE LAW!

I ask myself, how can police officers support Dave Cortese with Supervisor Cortese’s record with opting out of the Secure Communities Program? It’s a given that the police officer’s unions will unquestionably support Dave Cortese, but what does the police officer on the beat really think?

Is federal law on immigration a different country where it doesn’t matter the law? We have sanctuary for illegal immigrants and it seems to me that federal LAW on immigration be damned!

The sadness I feel is that local elected officials get promoted into the federal offices where they take their lack of respect for federal law along with them. If Mayoral candidate Dave Cortese voted to opt out of the Secure Communities Program, what will Mayor Cortese do bring back respect for law? What would Congressman Cortese or Senator Cortese do the Homeland Security if elected to federal office. If Dave Cortese gets elected to federal office, will ICE be abandoned?

Will Mayor Dave Cortese challenge San Jose’s sanctuary city policy or just deny San Jose is a sanctuary city?

Please share your thoughts. For whom do I vote? It seems to me, we really don’t have any viable candidates for mayor, so what is one to do?

Michael Honda’s Stand On ILLEGAL immigrants

Voted NO on building a fence along the Mexican border” says it all.

Source: http://www.ontheissues.org/CA/Mike_Honda_Immigration.htm

Michael Honda’s voting record is quite clear that he does not favor immigration law, in my opinion. On every issue relating to immigration, Michael Honda chooses to take the side of the ILLEGAL immigrant.

This is unfair to every immigrant who requested permission to enter the United States. Michael Honda is putting the cheaters, i.e., the line-cutters in front of the line.

We used to ask for the “best and the brightest” from around the globe, but with people like Michael Honda representing the folks in his district, we take anybody and everybody which means Michael Honda is welcoming immigrants that come in without health checks, without security checks, without jobs, without proof the illegal immigrant can stay off welfare, without papers, without respect for American laws and probably without the desire or need to learn English.

Michael Honda is NOT fair to the legal immigrants who patiently waited their turn. Michael Honda is not fair to the United States citizens who see their laws trounced upon and ignored by Michael Honda and his illegal immigrant supporters.

How can San Joseans stomach a congress member who is making laws for us to follow yet who despises immigration law himself, it seems, and who seems to go out of his way to trash our immigration system?

For another source on Michael Honda’s actual voting record in Congress, go to VoteSmart.org and look up his dismal record.

San José Leaders NOT Quiet in Latest Illegal Alien Invasion

Update to July 10 post titled San José Leaders Strangely Quiet in Latest Illegal Alien Invasion:  Some of the usual suspects of illegal alien and illegal alien advocacy supporters, i.e., the San José and Santa Clara County politicians couldn’t or wouldn’t remain silent. This time they banded together and published their current “Love-Fest” with illegal immigrants and now are as vocal as ever.

See the news story in the San Jose Mercury News: Santa Clara County seeks to welcome migrant kids flooding Texas border.

Source: http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_26161402/santa-clara-county-seeks-welcome-migrant-kids-flooding


Previous July 10 post:

In the past, San José wrote a paper resolution condemning Arizona’s brave fight against illegal immigration.

However, with the latest invasion of illegal aliens across our U.S.-Mexico border, Mayor Reed, Vice-Mayor Madison Nguyen and the rest of the city council have been strangely quiet.

San José leaders need to speak up and request ICE send the illegal aliens (illegal immigrants, migrants or that liberal trying to be sensitive term of the “undocumented”) to San José.

After all, when San José’s leaders wrote passed a resolution condemning Arizona’s attempt to stem the flow of illegal immigration, San José’s leaders, in my opinion, were just saying to the illegals, “Welcome to San José; we love you; we care; please join us in San José.”

So ask yourself, why haven’t the esteemed leaders of San José spoken up on this latest invasion of illegal immigrants? San José leaders need to put their money where their mouth is. “Not words, city leaders, but actions are required.”

Shouldn’t these caring folks at city hall spring into action and provide housing for the migrants? We already have 500,000 illegal immigrants living in the bay area. What’s a few thousand more?

Rents are already some of the highest in the nation so what if a few thousand more folks push rentals higher? The legal immigrants, tax-payers, U.S. citizens all don’t seem to care, in my opinion, and voters just keep electing the same old tired politicians who think our immigration laws are a joke.

This “love-fest” with illegal aliens isn’t just isolated to San José, but most of Silicon Valley is affected. The Santa Clara Board of Supervisors and local Congress members, such as Mike Honda and Zoe Lofgren also never met an illegal they didn’t like, in my opinion.

So get off your duff and start calling your council member, Santa Clara County supervisor and local member of Congress to demand that the illegal immigrants be brought to San José.

As for jobs for the illegals, there are plenty of public sidewalks for day laborers to congregate around local Home Depots, Orchard Supply Hardware, U-Haul centers and paint stores for the illegals to mix in with the honest day laborers to get “under the table” cash to send outside the country.

Interesting, that San José wants to capture every dime but fails to go out and audit the day laborer pick-up sites throughout the city. Shouldn’t the city of San José collect their fair share of income tax from the day laborers getting paid cash?

How about this idea: San José should go out and monitor the folks picking up the day laborers and charge the employer a fee for picking up day laborers. “This is another new revenue source, San José.”

By the way, migrants is a another disgusting term like “undocumented” which is used to sweeten up the word and try to take away the term “ILLEGAL,” as the illegal immigrants are breaking the law and our local leaders don’t seem to care about illegals not obeying United States laws.

So picking up a few thousand more illegals shouldn’t be a problem for San José. Housing: no problem. Jobs: no problem. Philosophy: no problem as San José is already listed across the Internet as a “Sanctuary City.”

So why hasn’t San José jumped into action to request illegal immigrants be sent to San José?
