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.”
American 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!******************************

|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.

This will be an emotional, aggravating and disturbing account of yet
another senselss loss of life.
JOE STORIE – another senseless life lost at the hands of an illegal alien
Jeanne says……… Joe was an All American – A Big Man with a Big Heart
Unlike many families that are forced to deal with the tragedy of the
loss of a loved one and remain silent for a variety of reasons…………..
This family is speaking out… As Jeanne puts it “We will not Shut Up”
Joe Storie was a small business man in the Construction field.
And even though his business was negatively impacted and being
undercut by cheap illegal labor… Joe would not hire illegal aliens.
Joe – a father of three – just wanted a better life for himself and his family
but instead – he was murdered by yet another drunk driving illegal alien.
Please note the article below states he was here on an overstayed visa,
however court records state nothing about a visa and instead list him as
an illegal alien
Tune in for an account of this tragedy, the reward being offered and
a Family’s turmoil

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.”
