"The Krieble Foundation is a very good red card program that says, you get to be legal but you don't get a path to citizenship, and so there's a way that ultimately you end up with a country where there's no more illegality, but you haven't automatically given amnesty to anyone." -Republican Presidential Newt Gingrich on his legalization proposal for illegal aliens residing in the United States, during the most recent GOP debate, November 22, 2011

To help readers follow candidate Gingrich’s urging, I post the latest amnesty scheme HERE.

What a shame that Ted Kennedy is not alive to see and appreciate the fact that a leading GOP candidate for president of the United States is recycling the “we can solve illegal immigration by making the illegal legal and we promise to secure the border soon!” goop.

(Note - some news agencies have reported the above quote as “…you get to be legal but you don't get a pass to citizenship…”)

What a disgrace to propose amnesty for illegals when our unemployment rate is over 10%. Gingrich doesn't live in our world obviously.

They are not only doing jobs Americans don't want to do - they are employed in construction, manufacturing, and meat processing plants. Also, many illegals are self-employed in landscaping, painting, tree removal, roofing, etc. They are directly competing (unfairly) with citizens whose long livelihoods in those businesses have been decimated. Who is worried about the unfair competition?

I looked at the chart for coming here legally in the first place. It is really not that complicated, it actually serves to keep out the undesirables and unneeded who make up a large part of the illegal population living here on taxpayer paid benefits.

Adios, Newt: There's nothing "humanitarian" about Gingrich amnesty proposal

For Newt Gingrich, it seems that amnesty is an every-25 year “humanitarian” project.

Many thanks to the former House Speaker for explaining his core values and oh-so-morally-superior “compassion” on America’s illegal immigration crisis, another amnesty and the rule of law in the GOP presidential primary debate this week.

This long-time American was ever so close to making the blunder of supporting him for president.

With a blend of talking points taken from the anti-enforcement Chamber of Commerce, Barack Obama, the National Council of La Raza, the open borders Big Religion Inc. and Jerry Gonzalez of GALEO, the former speaker ended any confusion about his aversion to enforcement of the laws on immigration he voted for as a congressman.

“I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who have been here a quarter century, who have children and grandchildren, who are members of the community, who may have done something 25 years ago, separate them from their families and expel them. I’m prepared to take the heat for saying, let’s be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but by finding a way to create legality so that they are not separated from their families” said candidate Gingrich.

Heads up for Newt from recent Rasmussen poll headlines:

“59% say U.S. government encourages illegal immigration

63% favor immigration checks on all routine traffic stops

Most voters oppose public schooling, tuition breaks, driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants

64% say U.S. society fair and decent”

Gingrich also degraded and insulted the entire concept of legal immigration and U.S. citizenship by referring to not-yet-captured illegal aliens as “law-abiding citizens.”

He added, “I do believe if you’ve been here recently and have no ties to the U.S., we should deport you.” So it is a matter of time? Golly, thanks Newt. Apparently there is a statute of limitations on immigration violations for the would-be president of the republic.

It’s ironic that Gingrich would pick a figure of “a quarter century” as a time period for which an illegal can avoid deportation and then gain legal status in the USA.

Twenty-five years ago, then Congressman Newt Gingrich voted for the Simpson-Mazzoli legislation that legalized illegal aliens and offered the promise of future employer sanctions and secure American borders.

It was to have ended illegal immigration in the U.S forever.

The 1986 “one-time” amnesty legislation eventually made about three million illegal alien fugitives legal. The borders were not secured. Despite tireless work on the part of the Obama administration and the media to convince America otherwise, they still aren’t secure. Employers continue to hire and employ the less costly black-market labor who made it past Border Patrol Agents.

Despite the fraud involved in the same scheme in 1986, for Gingrich, it seems that amnesty is an every-25-year “humanitarian” project.

Gingrich also said with a straight face at the debate he wanted to create “a guest worker program” to help solve illegal immigration.

This dishonest concept and talking point taken straight from George W. Bush, John McCain and Ted Kennedy is offered up knowing that most Americans are unaware that we already have multiple guest worker programs in place. Including for agriculture. And that we already take in more than a million guest workers each year. Along with another million or so legal immigrants annually. While unemployment runs around 10 percent. And wages are stagnant. And many local governments all over the nation are going broke.

Gingrich knows no debate moderator is ever going to ask him or any other candidate for a reasonable explanation of this lunacy.

As I type, I can hear the usual voices on talk radio who have made up their minds to back Gingrich — no matter what — yelp that we can’t “round up and deport millions of illegal aliens” … yada yada.

Sure we could. Obama is claiming to have deported about 400,000 illegals last year and the year before. That claim is deceptive at best, but certainly those numbers are easily reached. Deporting say, half-a-million illegals every year until they are gone is quite possible and most American would support the endeavor. This one included.

But the real answer is attrition through enforcement — making the illegals leave on their own because of a lack of jobs, benefits and services and fear of strict, enthusiastic enforcement of the federal immigration laws for which the 1986 Congressman Newt Gingrich voted.

He has made it crystal clear that they now mean very little to him.

Adios, Newt — we know you too well.

Word is that King produced more than 10,000 emails, faxes and phone calls, each week, to legislators during the HB 87 process. I know that a Cobb woman, Inger Eberhart is listed as a board member with several people and that King gets hundreds of people to show up at rallies in Georgia and in Washington. No small feat tpo get conservatives off the couch. Maybe AMERICAN BUSINESSMAN should stop employing illegals and check out the Dustin Inman Society Website.

Fundamental change? American students freedom of speech lawsuit dismissed in California
by DA_King

As a sign of the times, a way of measuring the results of the ongoing scourge of multiculturalism at any cost, the effects of massive, uncontrolled, illegal immigration and the direction of Obama’s “fundamental change” on America, consider story of American kids sent home from their classes at an American high school in northern California in May of 2010.

Their infraction? They had the temerity to wear t-shirts displaying the image of Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes – the American flag. On May 5 th – “Cinco de Mayo” in Espanol.

Live Oak High School Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez ordered the proud American kids to remove or turn inside out the offending T-shirts. The students refused, and several were sent home.

The reason given by the principal? Displaying the American flag image on that particular day was deemed “provocative” and “disruptive.”

Fast forward to last week when a Federal judge in California dismissed a suit filed by the students and their parents last year alleging freedom of speech violations. Thejudge ruled that officials had a legal right to send home students wearing shirts with the American flag on Cinco de Mayo because of a "reasonable fear" the images could spark violence in the 1,300-student American school. Why? Because 20% of the students take English as a second language classes and 18% of the students are “poor.”

The American flag is an insult to poor people? To students who are being taught English in America at taxpayer expense? Or simply an oppressive insult?

In defending the actions of the principal and the federal judge, anti-enforcement, liberal columnist Rueben Naverrette writes on the CNN website that “the previous year, in 2009, a group of Mexican students marked the holiday by walking around campus holding a Mexican flag. A group of white students responded by hanging a makeshift American flag from a tree and chanting "USA." According to the Chronicle, tensions flared and the two groups faced off with profanity and threats. In the USA.

A note here: Naverrette knows very well that “white” is not the opposite of “Mexican” and that one does not exclude the other. “Mexican” describes a nationality. The terms Latino and Hispanic denote ethnicity, not race. Just ask one some of the proud Hispanic-American members on the board of the Dustin Inman Society.

One can be of any race – or nationality - and be Hispanic or Latino. But Naverrette’s and many other members of the liberal media’s intentional and constant usage of the divisive comparison helps to fan the flames of alleged “racism” on the part of Americans who demand that our immigration laws be enforced and that all immigrants – even from Mexico - assimilate into the famous American culture, common language and proud patriotism that has but one flag and loyalty to one nation – the USA.

The dismissal of the California lawsuit is heralded as an important victory on numerous far-left websites. With a straight forward view into the goal and agenda of the open borders loons, a writer on the left-wing Huffington Post blog suggests that “perhaps the students at Live Oak would be right to carry both American and Mexican flags on Cinco de Mayo.”

Author Victor Davis Hanson credibly labeled what is now occupied California as “Mexifornia” in his widely-read 2004 book of that name. Three years later, he wrote “the flood of illegal immigrants into California has made things worse than I foresaw.” I am sure these Live Oak High School students and parents would agree.

Suggestion to parents and students in the Cobb County and Georgia: Get your American flag t-shirts ready for school on May 5 th , 2012.

Let’s see how far down the road to becoming ‘Georgiafornia’ we have traveled.

Attention KSU security: Jerry Gonzalez of GALEO to speak at KSU
by DA_King

Readers who have never seen or heard Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of former Georgia state Senator Sam Zamarripa’s anti-immigration-enforcement Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials Inc. (GALEO) will apparently have that always eye-opening opportunity this evening at KSU.

I am told the lecture – and I do mean lecture – is sponsored by the Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Inc.

According to a post on the GALEO Facebook page (a valuable source of insight on how the far left-wing thinks) Gonzalez is speaking today – for three hours – on the what he sees as the difficulties with American immigration laws, the horrors of Georgia’s recently enacted HB 87 and the concept of federal “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” – what most people refer to as amnesty-again.

This long-time American strongly recommends attending if you can spare the time.

According to GALEO the no-cost entertainment begins at 6:30 inKennesawState University’s Clendenin Building, room 1008.

Attendees should be ready for the very possible exposure to one of Gonzalez’s well-known, but seldom reported hissy-fits if things don’t go the way he demands at theKSUevent.

A recent Rome News-Tribunenews report (“Immigration discussion gets heated during panel” – November 9) recounts Gonzalez’s antics at a similar event in that lovely Georgia city. Apparently, Gonzalez was “uninvited” as a panel member on a scheduled meeting there focused on needed adjustments by business and Human Resource managers in Georgia due to the E-Verify requirement in Georgia’s new law.

According to the Rome news report, Gonzalez showed up anyway, angrily shouted at Rome’s diminutive and well-liked state Repesentitive, Katie Dempsey, from the audience during and after the event and ended up being escorted out of the event, the building and off the property by local police. Dempsey was a cosigner on HB 87.

Word around Rome is that the meeting organizers learned ofGALEO’s involvement in a pending lawsuit against the governor and the state to stop enforcement/HB 87 and concluded that Gonzalez wasn’t the best choice for a rational, unbiased discussion. (Duh).

One poster on the Rome newspaper’s comments section offers more on the possibilities for Gonzalez being removed from the panel there: “Jerry is a threatening, angry wanna-be "tough guy" who says English as the official language of the USA "would be an insult" to his culture. Maybe they learned that Gonzalez had the Socialist Workers Party come to his 2003 group to help with trying to get Ga drivers licenses for illegals. He has hysterically screamed at women legislators before, most recently before this, in the last legislative session, in the Capitol, at a state Senator from Gwinnett County who made the remark that Georgians should not have to pay for illegals on the floor of the Senate.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

I can personally confirm that last observation. I was in the Georgia Capitol last session when Capitol Police warned Gonzalez that he would be removed if he continued his screaming at state Senator Renee Unterman after her complaint to them.

Anyway, if you have time tonight to see the illegal alien lobby and listen to the amazing arguments used against enforcement of American immigration laws, today is your chance.

Take a camera and an American flag. They love that.

Today, 10 November, is the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. If you see a Marine of any age today – or tomorrow at the Marietta Veterans Day parade – feel free to say “Happy Birthday Marine.” It means a lot to us.

Mexico City is not a ‘sanctuary city’ for illegals – but Washington D.C. is
by DA_King

If there were only one way to sum up the illegal immigration crisis in the United States, the people who run the government in the nation’s Capital may have found it: Washington D.C., where our laws are made, where there the words “Equal Justice Under Law” are displayed over the Supreme Court Building and where the Chief Executive of the Republic resides … is now a sanctuary city for illegal aliens. 

Read it and weep. This from the Website of NumbersUSA in Washington, from multiple news sources:

The District of Columbia became a sanctuary city on Wednesday after Mayor Vincent Gray signed a new order forbidding D.C. police to ask about an individuals immigration status. 

Furthermore, Mayor Gray said District police will not help Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents execute federal warrants unless the individual has committed another crime.

The new order also forbids D.C. police from contacting Immigration and Customs Enforcement to inquire about an individual’s immigration status.

“Law enforcement agencies that honorICEdetainers help protect public safety,”ICEspokeswoman Cori W. Bassett said.

For future lawbreakers, Mayor Gray and Police Chief Cathy Lanier say it will be up to the FBI and ICE to decide on whether to check a detainees immigration status. However, D.C. police don’t fingerprint offenders of less serious crimes, which will prevent theFBIandICEfrom checking individuals charged with minor crimes.

Should an individual jailed by the D.C. police be suspected by ICE as an illegal alien,ICE will have 48 hours, excluding holidays and weekends, to pick up the suspect. The new city policy prevents detaining a suspected illegal alien for more than 48 hours. 

You may want to refrain from asking “who’s country is it anyway?” The answer might not be one you can bear to hear.

For those who may be wondering: No, Mexico City is not a sanctuary city for illegal aliens. And Mexico quite logically enforces it’s immigration laws. In part, they go like this:

• Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

- Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)

- Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34)

- Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37)

- The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.” (Article 38) 

• Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:

- Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)

- A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual’s identity. (Articles 85 and 86)

- A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).

• Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:

- Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)

- Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)

• Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:

- Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)

- Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)

- Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.

You can read more of these obviously draconian laws – in English - read here if you want.

They seem to make a lot of sense. Did I mention they are enforced?

A Letter I’d Like to Read About Immigration Reform and Agriculture
by DA_King

For a variety of reasons, it will never happen, but below is an outline of a statement I would enjoy seeing made public by the majority of Georgia legislators who had the courage to vote “YEA” on Georgia Rep. Matt Ramsey’s immigration enforcement bill earlier this year. 

—————

In the 2011 session the General Assembly passed the ‘Georgia Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011’ (HB 87), aimed at protecting Georgians from the ravages of the crime of illegal immigration.

While citing an annual $2.4 billion dollar state cost of illegal immigration, Gov. Deal signed HB 87 into law in May with loud approval and gratitude from the huge majority of Georgia citizens.

Thousands of illegal aliens who have escaped capture by Border Patrol Agents have migrated out of Georgia because of HB 87. This is not surprising to anyone who voted for the legislation.

We want to assure the public and the press that despite the endless, concentrated and transparent barrage of one-sided, incomplete media reports on the supposed negative effects of Georgia’s enforcement policy, we have every confidence that the legislation is having the desired positive effect for our beloved state.

Of particular interest are the effects of the promise of enforcement on the agriculture industry.

We find it necessary to note that hiring illegal labor was illegal long before HB 87 became law. And that Georgia suffers from raging unemployment and severe budget problems. And that HB 87 merely expanded on 2006 state law requiring use of the no-cost E-Verify system by public employers like local governments as well as public contractors.

Further, we sadly note that the current dilemma in which some of Georgia’s growers find themselves was easily avoided by simply using the long existing federal foreign guest worker system known as the H2A visa program.

This visa establishes lawful means for agricultural employers who anticipate a shortage of domestic workers to bring an unlimited number of temporary foreign workers into the United States. Including Georgia.

But the grateful, legal, temporary workers must be treated with dignity and respect. Employers must provide housing that meets lawful safety and health standards. They must also provide workers’ compensation insurance to workers.

The wage for H2A workers must be the same as that for U.S. workers.

The employer must ensure the legal temporary workers receive three meals a day.

We are certain that no reasonable Georgian can somehow maintain that these requirements are somehow unfair, cumbersome or “too costly.”

With little fear of federal sanctions, these requirements make pliable and desperate, fugitive illegals considerably more profitable to use.

Even if no American ever again applies for employment in Georgia’s Ag business, farmers have access to the legal foreign H2A workers if they properly prepare for a Georgia in which they must operate their business in a lawful manner.

We find it troubling that with the agriculture industry receiving billions in taxpayer subsidies, many farmers are openly using black-market labor. A recent poll of Georgia farmers revealed only 5 percent of them had tried the H2A. During the committee process on HB 87, the constant and endless objection to the H2A workers from the agriculture industry lobbyists was that lawful workers were more costly than the illegals who have been used for decades.

In committee, one Ag lobbyist, Brian Tolar, compared the H2A guest worker program to a Cadillac, with the admonition that not everyone can afford that luxury auto.

We do not regard compliance with immigration laws or HB 87 as a luxury.

We encourage business owners in Georgia’s agriculture industry to follow the lead of the Georgia Peach Council in use of the H2A temporary guest worker visa. Mr. Frank Funderburk, director of the Georgia Peach Council, was quoted in a widely distributed spring 2011 Associated Press report: “Our growers can’t afford to not have a work crew,” Funderburk said. “They bit the bullet several years ago (and joined H-2A) and they jumped from paying $7 an hour to $9.”

We believe Mr. Funderburk’s remarks speak volumes on the solution to an increasing level of absence of illegal farm labor in Georgia.

We urge Congress to consider streamlining and improving the H2A visa system while we insist that Georgia’s farmers apply all necessary speed to fully comply with existing law.

In closing, we believe it imperative and timely to make it clear that we reject out of hand any legalization program for illegal aliens, including one that would serve to create captive workers who would be fully dependent on the bosses to maintain their amnesty status.

One reporter has asked if HB 87 would pass today, in light of the dubious reports commissioned by the Georgia Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association on the self-inflicted tribulations of farmers who have refused use of the available legal system for obtaining employees.

Most Georgians will be happy to hear: The answer is a resounding “YEA.”

Signed: Most of the Georgia General Assembly.

I'm curious. If a legal American got a job in the ag field, would he/she also get the three free meals as well as the rest of the goodies that the foreign wokers get? That certainly adds to the take home pay. If you don't have food and rent costs, you're doing pretty well. Most of the farmers seem not to want to do the extra paperwork involved in any govenment project, and turn to illegal aliens...sorry, they turn to those who break in, commit crimes, live off the taxpayer and hate this country people.

More on Rick Perry and immigration

In Tuesday’s print edition of this newspaper is a column focused Rick Perry’s troubling record on “immigration” – including his history of advocating for open borders and the free flow of people between Mexico and the United States.

Yes, Perry, the would-be guardian of American security and sovereignty has proclaimed his support for open borders more than once since becoming governor of Texas.

If you are wondering why this easily illustrated fact has not been the focus of endless media reports and a hot topic for conservative national talk radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or even the “High Priest of the Church of the Painful Truth” Neal Boortz…me too.

Do not look for this info in the Atlanta newspapers or the national press or “news” networks. It is apparently a secret.

To ensure confidence in the facts presented in the column, I have created a “Rick Perry Watch” page on the Dustin Inman Society Website for which there is a link directly from the Home page.

For the conservative voters who have picked Perry as “their guy” and want desperately to cast doubt on the accuracy or context of any of the statements about Perry’s record, the page contains hyperlinks to the sources and past news stories from which Perry’s quotes and positions were taken.

Including this 2001 Perry quote referring to former Mexican president Vicente Fox’s endless demand for an open border between Mexico and the United States: “President Fox’s vision for an open border is a vision I embrace, as long as we demonstrate the will to address the obstacles to it. An open border means poverty has given way to opportunity and Mexico’s citizens do not feel compelled to cross the border to find that opportunity” said Perry.

The source? The Website for the Office of Governor of Texas and Perry’s archived official speeches.

The Rick Perry Watch page and numerous other links to Perry’s troubling statements is HERE.

The column also mentions demands set forth by the “Occupy Wall St.” mob. Including open borders. You can read that for yourself HERE.

Another question: Why have Perry’s competitors for the GOP nomination for presidential candidate ignored these facts?
