7 million in tax credits, 825,000 multiple names and more

Brewer receives many letters of praise

Gov. Jan Brewer’s illegal-immigrant order draws many letters
In the days after Gov. Jan Brewer ordered state agencies to deny certain undocumented immigrants driver’s licenses and state benefits, her office received nearly 2,350 letters, e-mails, faxes and phone calls from people across the nation.
The overwhelming majority lauded the governor, according to her office.
On Aug. 15, Brewer reiterated through an executive order that state agencies must deny licenses and other public benefits to all undocumented immigrants, even those who successfully apply for President Barack Obama’s new “deferred action” program. The program allows qualifying illegal immigrants to stay and work temporarily in the United States.

Illegals to Receive over $7 Billion in Tax Credits
A loophole in the US tax code, whose revision Harry Reid deliberately prevented, resulted in over $4 billion going to illegal immigrants in one year. That number is poised to top $7 billion this year, based on analysis from the office of Senator Jeff Sessions.
Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office calculated that, based on recent trends, illegal immigrants could receive roughly $7.4 billion through a provision known as the Additional Child Tax Credit. That’s more than quadruple what the payout was four years ago, but the payments have been steadily increasing over the past decade.
Although illegal immigrants cannot receive basic tax credits, they do qualify for the child tax credit, a refundable credit, under current law. Lacking a Social Security number, they are given an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to file returns.

Border Cities Are Burdened With Calls for Help
CALEXICO, Calif. — The calls come in thick and fast from the border, just blocks from the fire station here.
A woman suffered heatstroke in line at the port of entry. A person detained by customs officers complained of chest pain. An illegal immigrant broke his leg trying to hop the 20-foot wall that divides Calexico from its Mexican twin city, Mexicali.

In each case, the Calexico Fire Department responded.
All along the Southwest border, from San Diego to Brownsville, Tex., local fire departments respond to medical calls as they would to any emergencies within their city limits. But such calls for medical assistance at the border have become a growing burden on the finances and resources of fire departments in cities like this one, in the California desert 100 miles east of San Diego.

Last year, with trips to the port of entry and the Border Patrol station and others to assist injured fence-jumpers, Calexico firefighters responded to 725 calls associated with the border — a fifth of all calls the department received.

*************************************************
The Homeland Security Department maintains fingerprints of every foreigner who enters the country to help prevent fraud, but 825,000 of those records appear to be associated with multiple individuals, according to internal investigators. The sheer number of discrepancies raises questions about how many immigrants intentionally are faking their identities to evade authorities versus falling victim to poor typing.

Frank Deffer, a DHS assistant inspector general, noted some of the mismatches in the department’s fingerprint database were tied to individuals with rap sheets. The identification tool is the responsibility of the US-VISIT immigration program.
“Although most of the inconsistencies can be attributable to data input issues, US-VISIT is unable to quantify the extent to which the same individuals provided different biographical data to circumvent controls and enter the United States improperly,” he wrote in a report released this week. “Without this information, US-VISIT may be hindered in its ability to share information that could help border enforcement agencies prevent improper entries into the United States.”
Investigators discovered hundreds of thousands of situations where one set of prints corresponded to multiple names and birth dates. The database holds hundreds of millions of fingerprint records; the irregularities represent only 0.2 percent of individuals logged.

“60 Minutes” Report Shows American Families Hiding in the Shadows
For many years the advocates for open borders and unfettered immigration (those whom I have come to refer to as “Immigration Anarchists”) have done everything they could to foster an image about how illegal aliens are suffering and hiding in the shadows in communities across our country.

Illegal aliens are indeed being exploited; their vulnerability to exploitation is what makes them such desirable employees to unscrupulous employers. However, they are hardly hiding in the shadows. You can find illegal aliens on street corners in many American cities soliciting illegal employment. In fact, many communities have provided areas where these illegal aliens cannot avoid detection but the hot sun in summer and rain and snow when the weather turns inclement. These illegal aliens are not hiding in the shadows but congregating in the shade!
Sunday, July 29, 2012 the CBS News Program 60 Minutes aired a truly disturbing and disheartening report that they entitled, “Hard Times Generation: Families living in cars.”
The people living in cars are not illegal aliens but United States citizens and their children who became homeless as a result of the economic crisis some economists still refer to as a recession but should probably more accurately be called a depression! It is certainly depressing, and worse, to consider that conscientious American workers, in losing their jobs, have lost their homes and even their ability to pay for a room in a motel and have taken to living in their cars and concealing this from authorities out of fear that those authorities might well take their children from them! These American families and their children are now living in the “shadows!”

Jeb Bush, 10 ICE Agents and their petition and more

Dear Members
Note:
Jeb Bush is from the RINO Establishment. It is because of the inaction of our elected leaders that we find ourselves with such a huge problem. If we enforced our laws and secured the border – AS PROMISED – in 1986 there would be no discussion of a full blown amnesty. Bush is advocating for throwing under the bus….. Americans over illegal aliens, jobs, the economy, our safety and national security etc. In addition someone should ask Bush…. if we pander and throw the rule of law out the window for votes now… what promises, rewards and lawlessness will candidates have to promise ILLEGAL aliens in 2016 – The majority will never vote R – and Bush – whom I see as a rino traitor to the American people…..knows it! – Ruthie

Jeb Bush: GOP needs to change ‘tone’ to reach out
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a long-time proponent of increased Republican outreach to Hispanic voters, says demographic changes mean the GOP should shift the “tone” of its message over the long-term.
“I’m concerned over the long haul, for sure,” Bush said in an interview aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “Our demographics are changing. And we have to change not necessarily our core beliefs, but the tone of our message and our message and the intensity of it, for sure… This is going to be a close election. Long-term, if conservatives principles our (sic) going to be successful and implemented, there has to be a concerted effort to reach out to a broader audience than we do today.”
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report Comment
How in the hell did the demographics change? By allowing millions of illegal aliens to cross the border and then giving them amnesty! Now Jeb Bush is suggesting that we cave in because there are so many of them. He says we have to reach out to a “broader audience.”
What we have to do is change the audience by kicking out those who don’t have tickets!

Parents deported, what happens to US-born kids?

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Alexis Molina was just 10 years old when his mother was abruptly cut out of his life and his carefree childhood unraveled overnight.

Gone were the egg-and-sausage tortillas that greeted him when he came home from school, the walks in the park, the hugs at night when she tucked him into bed. Today the sweet-faced boy of 11 spends his time worrying about why his father cries so much, and why his mom can’t come home.
“She went for her papers,” he says. “And she never came back.”
Alexis’ father, Rony Molina, who runs a small landscaping company, was born in Guatemala but has lived here for 12 years and is an American citizen. Alexis and his 8-year-old brother, Steve, are Americans, too. So is their 19-year-old stepsister, Evelin. But their mother, Sandra, who lived here illegally, was deported to Guatemala a year and a half ago.
“How can my country not allow a mother to be with her children, especially when they are so young and they need her,” Rony Molina asks, “and especially when they are Americans?”

Illegal Immigrants, Illegal Votes

Liberals who frequently claim that there is no such thing as voter fraud or ballots cast by ineligible voters were served yet another dose of reality by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals this week. On August 22, the court released two decisions concerning noncitizens who registered and voted illegally in federal elections.
In Kimani v. Holder, the court refused to grant review of an immigration petition. Kimani was a citizen of Kenya who entered the U.S. in 2000 on a visitor’s visa. He did not leave when the visa expired. Instead, three years later, he got married, and his wife applied for a visa on his behalf. In addition to the fact that he stayed in the U.S. illegally after his visa had expired, he also violated federal law by registering and voting in the 2004 general election. If he had simply continued to reside in the U.S. illegally without applying for a visa, his voting would probably have never been discovered by DHS. It was only his application that led to an investigation of his voting and registration records.
Similarly, in Keathley v. Holder, Elizabeth Keathley, a Philippine citizen, married an American in 2003 in the Philippines. She received a nonimmigrant visa that allowed her to live in the U.S. while waiting for her application for permanent residence to be considered. But she also registered and voted in the 2006 general election. The Court did grant her a review based on her unsupported claim that an Illinois DMV official told her it was ok to register and vote.
Voting in a federal election by an alien is a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 611 and makes the alien “inadmissible” under 8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(10)(D)(i). However, I would be willing to bet a nice dinner at a good steak restaurant in Washington that, given this administration’s attempt to provide a general amnesty for illegal aliens in the country, neither one of these aliens will be sent back to their respective homelands.

Checkpoints deter illegal immigrants seeking abortions in Texas

Noncitizens accounted for 27 percent of the 220,899 Medicaid-financed births in Texas in 2010

McALLEN — Illegal immigrants who live in the Rio Grande Valley and are seeking an abortion after 16 weeks face a hurdle beyond Texas’ strict laws. They must make a long drive north and face internal border checkpoints.
Since 2003, Texas has required women seeking abortions in their second trimester to go to ambulatory surgical centers, and none exist in the Valley.
Health providers in the Valley say that many such women find out too late that they are pregnant, discover fetal anomalies or are too poor to obtain an abortion in the first 16 weeks. They say the only other option for some is to cross into Mexico for an illegal procedure or to acquire abortion-inducing drugs from unregulated pharmacies.
Kristeena Banda, the director of Whole Woman’s Health in McAllen, one of two abortion clinics in the Valley, said her clinic recently tried to refer a woman in her second trimester to a surgical center in San Antonio, about 200 miles away. To get there, she would have to pass a checkpoint in Falfurrias, north of Hidalgo County, where authorities have detained 12,000 illegal immigrants in the last year.
“She broke down and told us she didn’t have the papers to cross over,” said Banda, who did not know the woman’s fate or that of others who come in every month under similar circumstances because they often provide false information.
It is unclear how many illegal immigrants are seeking second-trimester abortions, but noncitizens accounted for 27 percent of the 220,899 Medicaid-financed births in Texas in 2010, state health officials said. Rick Pauza, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman, said those seeking health services, including abortions, were allowed to apply for legal entry and could get a pass to go through the security checkpoints.
“CBP will review each request on a case-by-case basis and determine if it meets the criteria for a humanitarian parole or waiver of documents,” Pauza said in an email.
But some people say there should be no exceptions for women seeking treatment for an elective procedure.
“As long as they’re not in labor, they should be taken into custody, and deportation procedures should begin,” said Shannon McGauley, an abortion opponent and the president of the Texas Minutemen, a nonprofit group that supports causes opposing illegal immigration. “They shouldn’t be given a pass because they’re pregnant. If you play, you’ve got to pay.”
Opponents of abortion rights say they sympathize with the women’s plight but that the women should seek a different solution.
“Abortion in any context is not okay,” said Catherine Hake, the executive director of the McAllen Pregnancy Center, which provides support services for pregnant women. “There’s so much aid and people willing to help. It’s a lot more difficult to offer aid to women who are illegal, but there are still options.”
Dr. Lester Minto, who owns Reproductive Services of Harlingen, the Valley’s other abortion clinic, said that before Texas began requiring women seeking abortions after 16 weeks to go to the surgical centers, he was able to perform the procedure on women who were 18 weeks into their pregnancy.
“Normally they’re crying and begging me to do it,” Minto said. “It’s sad when I know I can do it. I can do it properly.”
For his patients who are citizens, traveling such a long distance is an inconvenience, but they do not fear the checkpoints. For his patients who are illegal, the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 further complicated travel for those who needed specialized care outside the area, Minto said. Until then, “I could write a letter and they’d let them go through the checkpoints,” he said. “Since then, it’s changed.”
The Valley abortion providers said that when time, resources and geography were not on the patients’ side, they could advise them only to seek prenatal care and consider adoption.

A short clip that SHOULD BE SEEN BY ALL
Here’s a sobering, fact-filled history lesson about Meximerica. Americans will soon experience the impact of being a “minority,” that is, if our domestic enemies in DC don’t destroy us first. Hard-working taxpayers should be irate about this, but they are either totally dumbed down or numb to reality. Watch this and weep …

POMONA — Residents from all over the Inland Empire and San Gabriel Valley early Thursday were awakened by sounds of flashbang grenades exploding and voices over loudspeakers telling alleged members of the Mexican Mafia to come out with their hands up.

The FBI along with other federal and local law enforcement agencies led several pre-dawn raids simultaneously arresting members of the Mexican Mafia prison gang and members of the Mexican drug cartel, La Familial Michoacan.

Seventeen members associated with the gangs were arrested on drug, firearms and trafficking related crimes in Ontario, San Gabriel Valley, Pomona, Riverside and Montclair. Three gang members on the indictment were already in custody for unrelated charges, according to the FBI.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Armed gangs blocked highways throughout Guadalajara, Mexico’s second biggest city, on Saturday and vehicles were set on fire amid a surge in drug-war violence.

Police confirmed seven unauthorized roadblocks constructed with charred, smoldering cars and trucks within the Guadalajara city limits and 15 others in the surrounding Jalisco state, in western Mexico.

Taiwanese man charged in scheme for pregnant Chinese tourists to give birth in US territory

By Associated Press,

HONOLULU — A Taiwanese citizen who lives in Saipan was charged in a scheme to hide pregnant Chinese tourists so they could give birth in a U.S. territory, making their children American citizens, according to a federal complaint filed Monday.
The complaint charged Kuanyi Chen, 39, with harboring illegal aliens and enticing the entry of illegal aliens to the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
“Chen is involved in the recruitment and facilitation of travel, housing and other services for citizens of the People’s Republic of China who travel to Saipan … from China for the purpose of giving birth to United States citizen children,” the complaint states.
Under a temporary visitor program, Chinese nationals can enter the U.S. territory for no more than 45 days.
The case came to light when the husband of one woman told federal agents they were cheated and victimized.
Youli Xu said his wife, Rongqin Gao, had an argument with Chen because he was restricting pregnant women from going outside before 7 p.m. because they could be arrested for overstaying terms of the visitor program, authorities said.
Xu said he and wife had researched how to give birth to their child outside of China. They also found information about Saipan granting U.S. citizenship to anyone born there after 1986 and information about the 14th Amendment automatically granting citizenship to those born in the United States.
They communicated with Chen via an Internet messaging program and paid him $800 for a consultation fee that included guidance on traveling during the fourth or fifth month of pregnancy to avoid detection by immigration officers, the complaint states.
The complaint identified at least five of Chen’s suspected customers who entered Saipan in March and had not left as of July.
Chen was arrested Saturday at the departure gate of a flight bound for Seoul, South Korea. He was in the custody of the U.S. marshal’s office.
Neither Chen nor his attorney could immediately be reached for comment.
A detention hearing was scheduled for Thursday.

Man charged in high-profile fatality now a fugitive

Rob Morris | June 19, 2012
Local and federal authorities are searching for a man who jumped bail after being charged with three felonies stemming from a fatal accident late last year in Kill Devil Hills.
A malfunctioning traffic signal was flashing when the accident took place Oct. 5, touching off an intense debate over responsibility for controlling the intersection and eventually leading to lower speed limits.
Luis Alberto Rodriguez, 44, of Colington failed to appear in court and is now a fugitive, District Attorney Frank Parrish said last week. Federal authorities, he said, have been called in “to cast a wide net and try to locate him.”
Rodriguez has been charged with felony death by vehicle while engaged in the offense of impaired driving, two counts of felonious serious injury by vehicle and driving while impaired.
Rodriguez was hospitalized in Norfolk after the accident. He later posted secured bond that had been reduced to $50,000, according to court records.
Kill Devil Hills police Capt. Gene Johnson said that Rodriguez had been in the country on a temporary visa that has expired. He said the FBI is also working on the case.
Joseph Storie, 51, of Lenoir died from injuries in the wreck. He was a passenger in a pickup truck that rolled over in the accident. The driver of the truck, 43-year-old Paul Thomas, sustained minor injuries and was treated at The Outer Banks Hospital.
Storie’s wife, 37-year-old Alicia, and sister, 45-year-old Christina, were in the back seat of the pickup. They were flown to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
Storie was visiting the Outer Banks with his family.
An investigation determined that Rodriguez was traveling east on Colington Road and failed to stop for a flashing red light, police said. Rodriguez drove his Chevrolet Lumina into the intersection and was struck by the Chevrolet pickup, which was traveling south.
The traffic signal had malfunctioned about two hours before the crash. Traffic on U.S. 158 had a flashing yellow signal, giving vehicles the right of way, while traffic on Colington Road and Ocean Bay Boulevard had a flashing red light.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation was notified of the malfunctioning light but had not arrived to make repairs before the crash. Some questioned why police were not directing traffic.
The intersection was closed for three and a half hours until the scene was cleared.
As a result of the accident, speed limits were lowered on U.S. 158 from 50 to 45 mph from around the Wright Brothers National Memorial to Nags Head Elementary School. The limit was also lowered to 35 from 45 on Colington Road just west of U.S. 158.
Tips can be called in anonymously to Dare Community Crimeline at (252) 473-3111 or (800) 745-2746. If the information leads to the apprehension of Rodriguez there would be a cash reward.

Perry: No new state services for illegal immigrants

Joining a growing chorus of complaints about President Obama’s new policy giving some illegal immigrants a two-year reprieve from deportation, Gov. Rick Perry has advised state agencies that the federal move will not change Texas’ policies against providing services for those who remain in the country.

Nebraska joins opposition to Obummer’s NIGHTMARE amnesties for illegal aliens
“Echoing governor Jan Brewer, Nebraska governor Dave Heineman (R) said on Saturday that Obama’s ‘deferred action for childhood arrivals’ program [of discretionary non-enforcement of immigration law] does not make successful applicants ‘legal citizens’, meaning they remain ineligible for state benefits like driver’s licenses and other services.”
Before It’s News
“Let’s face it, folks: there’s a reason that Jan Brewer and Dave Heineman and Michele Bachmann weren’t invited to speak at the GOP Convention, while we’re being treated to Chris Christie, John McCain, and Jeb Bush, of all people. The fact of the matter is, Christie and Bush and Perry and much of the ‘pragmatic’ GOP Establishment have bought into the demographic tracking and identity politicking of the left… That the GOP establishment is either ignoring them or actively working against them, is suggestive of where [that faction of the] GOP really stands on limited government and constitutionalism. And it ain’t with us. It’s the ruling class vs the rest of us, as I’ve said a million times now. Party doesn’t have much left to do with it.”

Brewer says public backs her illegal immigrant drivers licenses order

Phoenix Business Journal by Mike Sunnucks, Senior Reporter

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s office says the vast majority of calls and e-mails it has received over a controversial order banning state driver’s license for young illegal immigrants being given immunity by President Barack Obama are positive.
“Public support is running 7 to 1 in favor of the governor’s action, as measured by calls, emails, faxes and letters received by the Governor’s Office of Constituent Services since Wednesday,” said Brewer communications director Matthew Benson.
Benson said there have been 2,037 comments in favor of the Brewer order and 292 against.

Arizona’s Governor Brewer: I’m not going to sit back and let my country go to hell

Governor Brewer was invited onto the Mark Levin show tonight to discuss her new executive order as well as discuss the presidential election and how her state will play in November.
Toward the end of the interview Gov. Brewer said that it’s been a tough go of it over the last few years but she was thankful for the encouraging words from Levin and other that help her keep going. But she said that even though it’s been tough, she’s not going to sit back and let her country go to hell.
She also said Arizona isn’t going to turn blue on her watch. Gotta love the Gov!

GOP platform gets tougher on immigration
TAMPA, Fla.— Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach persuaded the Republican platform committee Tuesday to toughen its language on immigration.
“We recognize that if you really want to create a job tomorrow, you can remove an illegal alien today,” he told the 100-plus representatives to the committee. “That is the way to open up jobs very quickly for U.S. citizen workers and lawfully admitted alien workers.”

The committee agreed to restore 2008 platform planks that didn’t appear in a draft prepared by Republican National Committee staff, who worked in close consultation with Mitt Romney’s campaign.

The platform committee overwhelmingly voted to add language proposed by Kobach calling for the completion of a border fence, the end of in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and an end to sanctuary cities. It also voted to support national E-Verify, an Internet database run by the federal government that makes it harder for undocumented workers to get jobs.
Trying to make inroads with Latino votes, Romney has toned down the hardline rhetoric he used in the primaries. The GOP convention is also being held in the key state of Florida, which is home to a large population of Hispanic voters that Republicans realize are key to the party’s electoral chances and future.
Kobach, who wrote Arizona’s and Alabama’s controversial immigration laws, reminded the group of Republicans in a ballroom at the Marriott hotel here of Romney’s stated positions on the hot-button issue
“These positions are consistent with the Romney campaign,” he said. “As you all will remember one of the primary reasons that Gov. Romney rose past Gov. [Rick] Perry when Mr. Perry was achieving first place in the polls was because of his opposition to in-state tuition for illegal aliens.”
Kobach quoted a passage from Romney’s website that says the soon-to-be GOP nominee will build a high-tech fence and eliminate the magnets for illegal immigration.

Alabama Public Schools Can’t Check Immigration Status of Students, Court Rules

A part of Alabama’s immigration law that ordered public schools to check the citizenship status of new students was ruled unconstitutional Monday by a federal court, but the controversial “show me your papers” provision was upheld.
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Alabama schools provision wrongly singles out children who are in the country illegally. Alabama was the only state that passed such a requirement and the 11th Circuit previously had blocked that part of the law from being enforced.
The court also upheld the “show me your papers” provision in Alabama and Georgia immigration laws that allows police officers to ask someone they stop for another reason — and who they suspect may be in the country illegally — for their immigration documents.

Bloomberg: ‘Nobody Has Come Across the [U.S.-Mexico] Border in a Long Time’

August 20, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said last week that “nobody” had illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in a “long time.”

He also advised that it would be easier for those wishing to illegally immigrate to the United States to simply buy a ticket to fly here and then overstay their visa.
Bloomberg was speaking in Boston at an Aug. 14 forum on immigration sponsored by the New England Council. He shared the stage for the forum with News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Settlement in Miss. suit over illegal workers
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Federal court records show a Mississippi company that was the target of the largest U.S. workplace raid on illegal immigrants has settled a discrimination lawsuit by four black women who claimed the company gave preferential treatment to Latinos.
A tentative settlement was announced in February. Details were released in court documents filed this past week.
The discrimination lawsuit was filed Feb. 25, 2011, and claimed Howard Industries discriminated against American workers by giving preferential treatment to Latino applicants and workers, many of whom were illegal immigrants from Mexico.
The lawsuit claimed Howard Industries not only knew it was hiring illegal immigrants, but instructed some on how to get false identities and concealed the fact that hundreds of employees were illegal immigrants. Federal authorities made similar allegations against the company.

Dear Ruthie,
The immigration policy in the U.S. impacts your Social Security benefits, and we want you to know how.

We retained a well regarded law firm to study the U.S./Mexico Social Security Totalization Agreement and tell us what, if anything, it would mean to current Social Security recipients when it is signed.

If the Agreement goes into effect, the millions of Mexican citizens who will become eligible for Social Security benefits may have a FAR STRONGER CLAIM TO BENEFITS and PROTECTION AGAINST CUTS than U.S. Citizens!
This will happen because a well-known U.S. Supreme Court ruling known as “Flemming vs. Nestor” makes it clear that Congress can CUT OR CHANGE the Social Security benefits you and I receive at any time, and that Americans do not have a “right” to Social Security benefits — no matter what Congress or the Social Security Administration may have promised in the past, how much you have paid in or how much you may be hurt by cuts.
However, the promises to pay benefits to Mexican citizens and dependents who are covered under the Agreement with Mexico will be protected because they are made in a legally enforceable international agreement!
Equally threatening is the implementation of an amnesty plan that would allow an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States to be on a “path to citizenship” that includes receiving Social Security benefits.
Passage of an amnesty bill that includes future Social Security benefits may surely lead to benefit cuts or additional taxes, or both! At a time when our Social Security system is in crisis, now is not the time to reward millions of illegal immigrants (and their dependents) for illegal behavior.
Your financial support is urgently needed in order to sustain the kind of campaign that will STOP the decision making that would allow non-citizen immigrants to be eligible to draw benefits based on illegal earnings.

Please consider making a special contribution. Whatever amount you send, please be assured it is appreciated and will be put to immediate good use to protect the benefits that you have earned.Sincerely,

Larry Hyland
Board Chairman

Hearing Over Arizona’s ‘Show Your Papers’ Law Set For Tuesday

The debate over Arizona’s controversial immigration law is set to heat up again tomorrow, when a U.S. District Court judge holds a hearing over a request by civil rights groups to block the “show your papers” provision, which was left intact by a Supreme Court decision in June.
A coalition of civil rights organizations will argue that Arizona’s law is unconstitutional, encourages racial profiling, endangers public safety and “betrays American values,” according to a statement from the American Civil Liberties Union.
The hearing in front of Judge Susan Bolton will address a request for a preliminary injunction to block Section 2(B) of SB1070 — the “show your papers” provision — as well as a provision relating to harboring and transporting undocumented immigrants, the ACLU noted.
Lawyers for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer have asked that the law be allowed to take effect, saying that opponents haven’t demonstrated that enforcement of the provision will lead to racial profiling or prolonged detentions of Latinos, the Associated Press reported.

Take Action. Now!
Alert! Join ICE agents in their amnesty protest by signing their petition!
The Obama administration has not only unilaterally instituted a two-year amnesty for a large body of illegal aliens, but has also threatened immigration agents who seek to enforce our laws. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents report that they are subject to punishment if they determine that an alien does not meet the amnesty criteria and is subject to deportation proceedings.
The ICE union states that a veteran agent arrested an illegal alien who hadten traffic violations. The ICE agent determined that the alien did not fit within the parameters of the Executive DREAM Order and initiated deportation proceedings. According to the union, “The agent’s supervisors overruled him and ordered him to release the illegal alien…. The agent in question is now facing … suspension.”
Please sign the petition to ICE Director John Morton and ask your friends to join you in this protest:
The petition states, in part:
By threatening your law enforcement officers with suspension for exercising their discretion, you are sending the message that … ICE officers are required to turn a blind eye anytime they encounter any illegal alien who has not been convicted of a specific violent crime, regardless of how dangerous that alien may be.
Again, please join these gutsy ICE agents in protesting administrative action that threatens America’s well-being.
