And that he writes a blog here on the MDJ site. And that he has opinions on the crime of illegal immigration. And that he supports another legalization, path to citizenship program to deal with the millions of illegal alien insurgents already here in the American Republic. He says that is “reasonable.”
And that on his blog he takes issue with use of the term “illegal alien” to describe illegal aliens. Including by yours truly. And that he wants this writer to take the “high road” – which he is happy to define.
And that he has written a blog on his objections in which he parrots the talking point passed on by the SPLC, La Raza, and such luminaries as Rich Pellegrino and Angry Jerry-with-ties-to-SPLC-designated-hate-groups–Gonzalez of the anti-enforcement, leftist corporation GALEO that any use of the quite accurate and legally correct term “illegal alien” is “dehumanizing.”
And the shameless and sickening assertion that saying or writing “illegal alien" is akin to use of the “N word” to describe black Americans. See HERE for Gonzalez’s 2004 pointers.
I am not making this up. He wants you to call the illegal aliens “undocumented workers.” Ignoring the fact that illegal aliens have a multitude of documents. Which are expired, stolen from Americans, fraudulently created or supplied by foreign governments to further the illegal presence of the illegal aliens in the USA.
Here is a sample of Foley’s feeling process from his March 19, 2012, blog that has 83 views as I type. Foley’s blog also has three comments from … Foley. In which he uses the term “hate talk” (of course he does).
“Here's where words come in. Mr. King repeatedly uses the phrase "illegal alien." He is no doubt aware that the Latino and Hispanic communities consider these words an slur because it serves to dehumanize in the same way the "n" word dehumanizes African-Americans or the words "mick" or "bohunk" once dehumanized my own ancestors when they arrived in America. By calling undocumented workers from Mexico, Central America or the Caribbean "illegal aliens" Mr. King makes them something less than human beings, something unworthy and contemptible.”
This worn-out, mindless, yawner of an attempt to redefine and normalize illegal aliens is not new or original, but it does tell us a lot. For one thing, like all liberals, this guy finds it impossible to keep race, skin color and ethnicity out of the topic of the illegal immigration invasion, or even his argument that we should not call illegal aliens … illegal aliens.
He must go bats when he reads the term “illegal employers.” Si?
Foley won’t get much of this long-time American’s limited time in response in the future, but his position is worth reading and I hope that it gets some attention from readers.
Just off the top of my head, readers who put themselves through digesting Foley’s complaint may want to point out that the term “illegal alien” is a legal and accurate term officially used by many agencies (the horror!) of the U.S. government including the IRS:
“Illegal Alien -Also known as an "Undocumented Alien," is an alien who has entered the United States illegally and is deportable if apprehended, or an alien who entered the United States legally but who has fallen "out of status" and is deportable.” HERE
and no less than the United States Supreme Court:
“…In considering this motion, the District Court made extensive findings of fact. The court found that neither § 21.031 nor the School District policy implementing it had "either the purpose or effect of keeping illegal aliens out of the State of Texas." 458 F.Supp. 569, 575 (1978).” HERE
The term “illegal alien” is also used throughout Georgia law aimed at protecting jobs, benefits and services from illegal aliens – not to mention defending the honor and value of real, legal immigrants - in existing Georgia law.
I could go on.
Mr. Foley: We know illegal aliens are humans – we don’t make immigration laws for hamsters or pumpkins.
Please take the road to reality unless you are securely ensconced inside an ACLU/La Raza seminar? And while we know it is constantly taught as a “how to” in leftist teach-ins; please stop trying to publicly redefine the English language to suit your “progressive” position on illegal aliens?
News and a warning for Georgia, from the illegal immigration capital of the world. Los Angeles police, sworn to uphold the law, have made it clear they will refuse to enforce a state law. Because it affects illegal aliens.
From Fox News:
“The Los Angeles Police Department will soon start ignoring California state law, which requires police to impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers for 30 days.
The majority of unlicensed motorists in Los Angeles are immigrants who are in the country illegally and have low-income jobs. The LAPD says the state's impound law is unfair because it limits their ability to get to their jobs and imposes a steep fine to get their car back…”
What we have here is a view into the very possible, not-too-distant future. And not just for California.
Georgians have witnessed angry mobs of as many as 10,000 illegal aliens and their organizers take over the streets in front of the state Capitol. Multiple times. The message is always the same: “We are above your laws.”
While the media refuses to report it, these events protesting immigration law enforcement have a heavy communist presence and usually come complete with socialist propaganda booklets (in two languages) that are snapped up by the crowds, raised fists saluting the communist murderer Che Guevara with angry “oppressed” marchers carrying banners heralding the coming “revolution” displaying the names of the endless lists of groups – including the communist party – that promise revenge when the marchers for “justice” are able to vote.
The word in the halls of the Gold Dome is that policy makers in Republican Central have convinced some senior Georgia GOPers that they will somehow get more votes from Georgia Hispanics if they act more like California Democrats. Which would be hilarious if it weren’t so dangerously dumb.
It is worth watching to see what that strategy does for current legislation aimed at illegal immigration in Georgia – watch the outcome of SB 458 in the last week of session.
See as much of a March 2011 illegal alien lobby rally video here as you can stand to get a handle on the attitude and tone of just one of the open-borders Marxists who claim leadership of the Georgia’s fugitives who have escaped capture at our borders and now demand “justice.”
The imported-from-the-third-world organizer of the anti-enforcement event and first speaker you see is Adelina Nicholls. Along with Teodoro Maus, former Consul General of the Atlanta Mexican consulate and Mexican citizen, she is a co-leader of something called the Georgia Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR).
She is preaching revolution in front of the state Capitol, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The rallying cry - but in a foreign language - is the same as Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan: “Yes we can!” - Si Sue Puede!
She demands what Los Angeles police are openly delivering. She wants Georgiafornia.
First, my apologies for the repetition in the headline.
It is quite difficult to type while holding my aching sides and trying to focus through the tears of laughter. But well worth the effort.
While I will make it an often visited topic and expand (a lot) soon, it is my great pleasure to write about recent news concerning Gerado E. (Jerry) Gonzalez from the hard-left, wanna-be bullies at the largely discredited Southern Poverty Law Center and their latest release of their annual fund-raising “hate map” (I am not making this up, they really publish a national map of what they say are “groups” that “hate” – they even have them divided up into categories). Not many rational people pay much attention this nonsense.
But for the illegal alien lobby, it is a large part of their tool box. “Ties to hate groups” is the constant, baseless and shrill howl made in endless hope that pro-enforcement Americans’ message of compliance with immigration and employment laws is overcome.
So let me finally type it: According to the SPLC, Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of the anti-enforcement Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials and well-known, far- left smear artist has ties to a designated hate group.
Even in the twisted world of separatist, ethnic hustling, this is not going to help his ability to keep State Farm, Georgia Power, Coca Cola and UGA’s Fanning Institute - and at least one Atlanta area judge (to name only a few) - on as donors, supporters and board members.
It likely won’t stop the support of Jane Fonda.
In a nutshell: Last Thursday evening, Gonzalez sat on yet another panel discussing, among other things, lamenting the fact that Cobb County government is unfriendly to illegal aliens. On that same panel, organized I am told by local accidental-entertainer Rich Pellegrino, sat a character named Charles Muhammad who is a Marietta Nation of Islam “minister.”
But that was before the SPLC slime-news came out.
The SPLC has officially labeled the Marietta branch of the Nation of Islam as a …”hate group.” See the Spring 2012 “hate map” HERE (go to Georgia) . If you have only seen the usual media cover-up reporting on the SPLC, please see HERE.
New handle for Jerry? Angry Jerry-with-ties-to- a- hate- group Gonzalez. See what I mean about holding my sides?
This is not Angry Jerry-with-ties-to- a- hate- group Gonzalez’s first rodeo with hate group minister Mohammad. They both participated in a similar 2010 shindig at which they attacked Cobb Sheriff Neal Warren and Gwinnett Sheriff Butch Conway, immigration enforcement in general and the wildly successful 287 g program in particular.
Jerry in 2010: "287(g) is unreformable. 278(g) has been co-opted and abused by Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren, Wild West Warren, which I say with disdain, not as a compliment. As well as Butch Conway in Gwinnett County," said Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. "We're talking about what could potentially happen in Arizona and we're worried and we're upset and we're angry about it. You can catch up on the entire MDJ story HERE.
The SPLC may be the most comical example and illustration of the filth that is the illegal alien lobby, irony and the effects of the un-American, huckster left smearing their own I have seen. Yet.
As I promised, we will get back to it later and often - and it will be yet another addition to the ‘Jerry Gonzalez’ chapter in my under-construction book.
A chapter that just got as new title: “The Angry Jerry-with-ties-to- a- hate- group Gonzalez” chapter.
Oh, my sides.
While I am positive that it was unintentional, “Angry” Jerry Gonzalez who heads up one of Atlanta’s many illegal alien lobby corporations was in Cobb County recently campaigning for the re-election of Sheriff Warren and the members of the Board of Commissioners.
The above elected officials owe at least a hat-tip to Gonzalez and other members of a race-baiting, anti-enforcement panel - organized by and featuring the usual suspects - for confirming that Cobb County is unfriendly to illegal immigrants. Oh my!
Gonzalez went on to lament that Cobb was the first county in Georgia to take advantage of the federal 287g program.
According the the MDJ, the panelists at Thursday’s “Cobb United for Change Coalition” meeting were the Rev. Lionel Gantt of the Cobb Southern Christian Leadership Conference; Lisa Davis, CobbWorks program services manager; GALEO Executive Director Jerry Gonzalez; educator Dr. Michael Rhett; and Nation of Islam minister Charles Muhammad.
Since July 2007, thousands of Cobb inmates have been identified as illegal aliens and deported because of 287 g, thereby greatly reducing Gonzalez’s stock in trade and hampering his goal of creating potential leftist voters out of the fugitives.
Gonzalez has been howling about the 287(g) program for years. Obama is currently trying to reduce or eliminate the program by greatly reducing funding.
Note: The sound you may not hear is clear, vocal outrage at the president’s dangerous election year pandering from the some Georgia congressmen. Let me know if I am missing something.
Anyway, it is good of Gonzalez to prove that enforcement works and to take time away from his other anti-enforcement, separatist work to help out our county leadership in an election year.
"I-Team" reporter Randy Travis at WAGA TV - Fox Five - has done his usual stellar job in exposing the fact that illegal labor is still a fact of life, business as usual habit for the anything-for-a-buck public contractors.
If you are asking where the outrage from the Governor's office is on this shameful fact...me too. I am going to call his office at 404-656-1776 to ask if there is any plan for an official investigation and an executive remedy.
The low estimate is that about 7% of workers in Georgia are illegal aliens.
Maybe another amnesty will fix it...right?
Founded by comrade David Brock in 2004, Media Matters monitors talk radio and the unaligned press to search out and destroy non-compliant voices of the reasonable American majority.
An example from today’s first report: “The group scored its first significant public coup in 2007 with the firing of host Don Imus from MSNBC. Just before Easter that year, a Media Matters employee recorded Imus’s now-famous attack on the Rutgers women’s basketball team immediately recognized its inflammatory potential. The organization swung into action, notifying organizations like the NAACP, the National Association of Black Journalists, and Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, all of which joined the fight.
Over the course of a week, Media Matters mobilized more than 50 people to work full-time adding fuel to the Imus story. Researchers searched the massive Media Matters database for controversial statements Imus had made over the years. The group issued press release after press release. Brock personally called the heads of various liberal activist groups to coordinate a message. By the end of the week, Imus was fired.
The Daily Caller also reports that “according to an internal memo obtained by The DC, Media Matters intends to spend nearly $20 million in 2012 to influence news coverage."
It is only February, but it would seem that their efforts have already paid off handsomely.
“In its short history, Media Matters has established itself as one of the most vocal and irresponsible combat organs of the Democratic Party” says Jacob Laksin at Discover the Networks and has produced a very insightful page on Media Matters HERE – which is a don’t miss as well.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
The first Daily Caller report can be read HERE.
The below statement is sent from the office of Georgia’s GOP Chair, and our friend, Sue Everhart regarding Gerardo E. (Jerry) Gonzalez over at GALEO, one of Atlanta’s many illegal alien lobby groups. GALEO is supported by Coca Cola, Georgia Power, UGA’s Fanning Institute and Jane Fonda.
“This month, I was invited to attend an event hosted by the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. While I am steadfast in my support for our conservative Latino Elected Officials, I also have fundamental philosophical differences with Mr. Jerry Gonzalez, the Executive Director of GALEO. It is a shame that Mr. Gonzalez uses his position of influence in a non-partisan organization to advance a radically partisan agenda, and for that reason I will not be attending the event. Moving forward, I look forward to continuing my work with our honest, hard working Latino leaders across Georgia.”
We congratulate Ms. Everhart on her clear command of polite understatement and her never-ending demonstration of conservative common sense and integrity. Sue is always the epitome of the perfect southern lady.
Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO) has been named one of “100 Most Influential Georgians” by Georgia Trend magazine in its January edition. Again.
To get a handle on Gonzalez’s “influence” and style, it should be pointed out that pro-enforcement denizens of the Georgia Capitol are forever grateful to “Angry Jerry” for his relentless race-baiting on the crime of illegal immigration, his well-known fuming, disrespectful rants during testimony in Gold Dome committees against Georgia’s illegal immigration enforcement bills over the years and his willingness to personify the radical left on the issue in general.
He served as an ideal educational example for legislators unfamiliar with the illegal alien lobby.
And there is this little gem: “Influential” Gonzalez was recently removed from a Rome, Georgia panel discussion on the subject of Georgia’s recent illegal immigration law, HB 87, hiring legal labor and use of E-Verify because the organization he heads and members of the GALEO Board of Directors are part of a pending ACLU lawsuit seeking to halt enforcement of parts of the law. Apparently the organizers saw a conflict.
Determined to get the anti-enforcement side injected into the event, Gonzalez drove from Atlanta to the Rome event anyway and was soon ejected and removed by local police from the property for screaming at a member of the panel, Georgia state Representative Katie Dempsey. The diminutive and well-liked Dempsey was a co-sponsor of HB 87 and a staunch supporter of E-Verify.
The Rome News Tribune covered the event and reported on Gonzalez’s antics HERE.
Part of the explanation from glossy Georgia Trend on how “influence” is defined:
“..Individuals on the list - some who are very much in the public eye and some who choose to work behind the scenes - are selected for the power and influence they wield. These are the people who affect the lives and livelihood of all Georgians in one way or another…”
You can read the GALEO press release on the Georgia Trend award HERE.
Also notable in the same issue of the magazine: An essay from author and periodic MDJ guest columnist Phil Kent correcting some slips on HB 87 by GT editors in a previous edition.
Just so you’ll know.
American readers who are justifiably alarmed at the local, state and national cost of providing benefits, services, drivers license exams, educational info and other official assistance and printed material in a seemingly endlessly increasing number of languages other than English may want to look forward for what is coming from Dear Leader and the anti-English crowd in Washington.
CNS News reports that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under Barack Obama has launched a telephone service that will offer live, one-on-one interpretation services in more than 175 languages.
One hundred seventy-five languages!
From the HUD Homepage:
“Have a question about buying a home, rental assistance or foreclosure but English is not your first language? HUD can help with its new HUD Language Line, a live telephone interpretation service that will allow HUD staff to converse with the public in almost any language.”
Can you say Tower of Babel R Us?
“Almost any language” won’t be enough of course. Anyone remotely familiar with the doctrine of the open borders mob knows that demands for additional languages is not far behind and that the premise will be that all government agencies at all levels must offer to translate into any and all of the world’s languages at anytime. You know, to be “fair.”
By some estimates, there are nearly 7000 languages in the world. Presumably not including Pig Latin, which is not included – yet – in the HUD list of languages in which to dole out taxpayer provided services. Readers who are, well…pro English, should know about a great and effective group by that name working hard to make English the nation’s official language HERE.
You can read the entire news item from CNS News HERE.
Bonus info: A character named John D. Trasviña is the Assistant Secretary of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity at HUD.
Astute readers that follow illegal immigration may remember his name from his previous leadership gig at the rabidly anti-enforcement, open borders Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), a far-left group that was created by the Ford Foundation, from which it has received millions.
MALDEF vigorously opposes any English as official language effort at any level in the USA.
My favorite radio quote from MALDEF’s founder, Mario Obledo, in 1998 - repeated live on the air goes like this: 1998: “California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn’t like it should leave. They ought to go back to Europe.”
To no one’s surprise, the dutiful media unfailingly describes MALDEF as a “civil rights organization.” You can, and should, read more about MALDEF HERE.
Jerry Gonzalez, familiar to many readers here as the always-angry and comical chief wanna-be- enforcer at former state Georgia state Senator Sam Zamarripa’s GALEO and darling of Georgia’s liberal media is a former MALDEF employee. Zamarripa is a former MALDEF board member. Jane Fonda is a GALEO “founding friend.”
In any language, this is what we call “networking.”
Among many other watch-dog groups, Californians for Population Stabilization has put out a call fort action to contact your elected voices in Washington D.C. and ask that they, get this…alter existing – and enforced – federal law that tax credits to be given to allows illegal aliens.
Seems a sound idea to us.
CAPS explains to the no-doubt surprised and hopefully outraged reader:
“According to the Treasury Department (REPORT HERE) , $4.2 billion in refundable credits were paid in 2010 to those who filed returns using Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs), a group composed mostly of illegal workers. Only those eligible to work in the U.S. receive Social Security numbers, but the IRS allows illegal aliens to file using ITINs and then receive Child Tax Credits even if they paid no income taxes.
As the Treasury Department inspector general noted, these tax credits are "an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts federal law..." Now is a most appropriate time to eliminate a loophole that robs Americans and encourages illegal immigration.”
