Talk Radio 790 KABC

Those of you who heard Macintyre in the morning on Los Angeles 790 KABC might have caught this. The clown who runs the Mexican separatist school, La Academia Semillas del Pueblo, paid for by taxpayers and aided by MeCHA and La Raza was interviewed by a UCLA undergraduate. Check out the final question and answer. The question has to do with the court decision regarding segregation in schools. Not surprisingly, this school has the LOWEST test scores in the state, even below those of piss-poor LAUSD.

TCLA: Finally, what do you see as the legacy of the Brown decision?

Marcos Aguilar: If Brown was just about letting Black people into a white school, well we donâ??t care about that anymore. We donâ??t necessarily want to go to white schools. What we want to do is teach ourselves, teach our children the way we have of teaching. We donâ??t want to drink from a white water fountain, we have our own wells and our natural reservoirs and our way of collecting rain in our aqueducts. We donâ??t need a white water fountain. So the whole issue of segregation and the whole issue of the Civil Rights Movement is all within the box of white culture and white supremacy. We should not still be fighting for what they have. We are not interested in what they have because we have so much more and because the world is so much larger. And ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to our own destruction. And so it isnâ??t about an argument of joining neo liberalism, its about us being able, as human beings, to surpass the barrier.

YOUR tax money is PAYING for this garbage!

The agents who patrol the porous U.S.-Mexico border welcome proposals to clamp down on illegal immigration, but they also want a crackdown on employers who hire undocumented aliens.

In and around the Arizona border with Mexico, many of the 2,400 men and women of the Border Patrol support President Bush’s call to raise the total number of agents protecting the southern border by 6,000 to 18,000. They also support Thursday’s Senate action to extend walls erected along the border with Mexico and to deploy more vehicle barriers and new technologies to frustrate illegal entry.

But they part ways with President Bush, many vehemently, on his guest-worker program, a centerpiece of the Senate’s immigration legislation. And they think that without cracking down hard on employers, higher-paying American jobs will remain a magnet for the down-and-out in Mexico.

”When the top guy offers amnesty and guest-worker programs, what does that tell them?” one veteran Border Patrol agent grumbled, pointing to 38 men and women he and colleagues had just apprehended near Arivaca Lake, about 40 miles from the border in Arizona’s vast desert. The group had walked for two nights in hopes of reaching Tucson, 68 miles from where they entered illegally.

The agent and several colleagues, who are prohibited by law from giving their names when discussing pending legislation, complained that Bush is not willing to penalize those who have immigrated illegally, and they said that invites more illegal immigration.

You may have already seen the signs popping up at your local Dunkin’ Donuts shop: “We follow the law! This company hires lawful workers only. ”

The signs, which have begun appearing in shops around Boston, make public the company’s participation, starting June 1, in a voluntary federal program that enables employers to quickly check the immigration status of new hires.

Dunkin’ Donuts is requiring all of its franchisees to participate in the Basic Pilot Program, which allows employers to verify a worker’s status using online databases from the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

The program is intended to remove the “guesswork” from document review, according to the USCIS. Saucier said an employer can verify a new hire’s eligibility through the databases rather than looking at a green card or other proof of work eligibility and decide if it is a legitimate document.

Participating employers must check on all new employees within three days of hiring, but cannot check before hiring and cannot check on current employees. Companies must post a notice about the program in a visible location.

If new workers are found to be ineligible for work, Saucier said, the employer would have to fire them but would not have to report them to immigration authorities.

The program could become mandatory if Congress passes legislation to that effect. US Citizenship and Immigration Services has requested $134.9 million, said Saucier, anticipating that possibility. (Some of the money would be earmarked for expansion of a similar verification system available to local and state governments.)

ORANGE â?? The Hills left East Vine Avenue two weeks ago. The Wigginses plan to leave in a month or so. And just last week, the Hansons put up a for-sale sign.

In a few months, most of Carol Fulton’s longtime neighbors will be gone. And in a flash, summer barbecues, Fourth of July parades and baseball games at the East Vine cul-de-sac will become distant memories.

Fulton sits on her front porch, pensive and surveying the neighborhood. It has changed drastically, she says.

The familiar smells and sounds of backyard barbecues are replaced by mariachi music and the honking horn of a shaved-ice cart. Fulton sees unfamiliar cars and people streaming onto the street.

Overcrowding caused by boarding homes - more than two leases on the same property - is an issue that city officials and residents have grappled with for years.

“This used to be a fun neighborhood,” says Fulton, 56. “Kids stayed outside until 10 or 11 p.m. I figured we’d live here until we died. We never in 100,000 years thought it would change.”

A Fort Myers man pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court today to a count of transporting illegal aliens.

Eliseo Escalante Santizo, 31, of 3308 Bassie Court, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was arrested by the FBI in connection with a human trafficking case involving a 14-year-old-girl and 24-year-old woman from Chiapas, Mexico.

Federal authorities had believed Santizo sold females for about $2,700 each to Quintin Orozco, who tookthem to Immokalee to start prostituting.

But chief assistant U.S. attorney Doug Molloy said he didn’t find evidence to show Santizo knew what the females would be doing when he transported them from Arizona to Florida.

The females escaped an Immokalee motel room in August after Orozco took them to buy lubricant, paper towels, thong underwear and miniskirts, federal officials said.

A Boston beauty salon was more bloody than beautiful this weekend when a brawl broke out over a customer speaking Spanish.

“Speak English! This is America!” one woman reportedly screamed at another at Kathy’s Nail Design in the Dorchester section of the city.

The remark ignited a massive melee at the salon, with numerous women engaging in manicure-to-manicure combat.

“Ten years in this country, I never seen anything like this. The lady says ‘Speak English, I don’t want to hear Spanish!’ and big fight happens,” shop owner David Win told the Boston Herald. “There was blood in here and everything. There were a lot of customers in here. It [was] crazy.”

The battle prompted a call to 9-1-1, and an officer dispatched to break up the battle received scratches on his neck and arm.

Police say Friday’s incident began as one of the suspects, Sonia Pina, 20, was speaking Spanish to her cousin when another woman, Nakeisha Prichard, 20, went on the attack. Within minutes, at least four women were engaged in the salon scuffle.

“The two suspects began to argue and a fight ensued,” said police spokeswoman Sharon Dottin.

Prichard allegedly pulled off her pump and began beating Pina with it, explaining to police, “I accidentally took my shoe off and hit her with it after she punched me.”

She ended up with charges of assault and battery, resisting arrest, and assault on a police officer, inflicted by her newly manicured fake acrylic nails.

Pina was charged with assault and battery for allegedly punching Prichard in the face.

Later in the evening, the salon was packed with people conversing in several languages, including Vietnamese, Spanish, Portuguese and English.

“A lot of people are angry with us, but they are just stressed out with their own lives and taking it out on the immigrant people,” Carmen Riveira, 28, a native of the Dominican Republic now living in Dorchester, told the Herald. “I pay my money to get my nails done. I can speak any language I want in here.”

Another customer, Kristine DaRosa, 18, of Dorchester, said her family would be directly affected by the immigration-reform bill currently before Congress. One of her uncles is being deported to their native Cape Verde.

“All kinds of fights are going on because of this,” said DaRosa. “People should just give everybody a chance.”

Based on a one-year in-depth study, a researcher estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each.

Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute in Atlanta analyzed 1,500 cases from January 1999 through April 2006 that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.

Schurman-Kauflin concluded that, based on a figure of 12 million illegal immigrants and the fact that more of this population is male than average, sex offenders among illegals make up a higher percentage than offenders in the general population.

She arrives at the figure of 240,000 offenders â?? a conservative estimate, she says â?? through public records showing about 2 percent of illegals apprehended are sex offenders.

“This translates to 93 sex offenders and 12 serial sexual offenders coming across U.S. borders illegally per day,” she says.

Schurman-Kauflin breaks down the 1,500 cases reviewed this way:

* 525, or 35 percent, were child molestations

* 358, or 24 percent, were rapes

* 617, or 41 percent, were sexual homicides and serial murders

Washington Post

Republican House members facing the toughest races this fall are overwhelmingly opposed to any deal that provides illegal immigrants a path to citizenship — an election-year dynamic that significantly dims the prospects that President Bush will win the immigration compromise he is seeking, according to Republican lawmakers and leadership aides.

Several Republicans said they are getting more bricks in the mail — as part of a new grass-roots campaign promoting a fence between the United States and Mexico — than letters or calls supporting Bush and the Senate bill. Most said 80 to 90 percent of feedback coming from constituents last week was in opposition to Bush and the Senate on the citizenship question.

Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) will not allow a vote on a House-Senate compromise that does not have the support of most GOP lawmakers or one that would undermine the reelection chances of his at-risk members, aides said. According to GOP lawmakers and strategists, about 75 percent of the 231 House Republicans are steadfastly opposed to the Senate bill or even a watered-down version of it.

It truly amazes me how this rabid Reconquista is not able to control himself. The whole ‘English as the official language’ thing is just symbolic bullshit to somehow make the Senates 20+ million illegal amnesty and massive “guest worker” program (as high as 200 million in 20 years) go down more smoothly. Even though it is meaningless, it still has Mayor “We clean your toilet’s” Villaraigosa upset.

BTW - English is the official language of California, that should give you some idea of how meaningless it is.

    Reconquista as Tinkerbell

LOS ANGELES — If an amendment to a federal immigration bill making English the national language is strictly enforced it could result in people who provide emergency services being unable to communicate with those in need, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Sunday.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Sunday he doesn’t believe the amendment would negate any current laws, but Villaraigosa foresees problems.

“Well, what it means is you won’t be able to communicate with people for badly needed services. They could be emergency services. They could be services for medical care,” he said.

He also noted that the Senate made no provisions to help immigrants learn English.

“They didn’t allocate money so people can learn English. I can tell you that, here in Los Angeles, there are lines, thousands of people waiting to learn English in our adult schools,” he said.

So if we want them to learn English and assimilate, we have to pay them?

Last week this idiot cried that sending the National Guard to the border would keep the Mexican tourists away! He called the illegal aliens TOURISTS!

Monterey Herald

Los Angeles — Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa warned Thursday that federal plans to use more troops and barriers to tighten security on the nation’s southern border could hurt the city’s attempts to increase trade and tourism with Mexico.

‘There’s no question that putting up a wall, assigning the National Guard, could have a chilling effect on tourism, the relationship between the two countries, economic ties,’ the mayor told reporters on the eve of his meeting with Mexican President Vicente Fox.

‘Our economies are much more intertwined than most people really understand,’ the mayor said. ‘The benefits to both countries are great.’

MEChA (â??Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlanâ? or Chicano Students Movement of Aztlan) is neither a fraternity nor a â??good-natured and altruistic college campus organizationâ?. Rather, it is the Hispanic version of the Nazis, Ku Klux Klan or Islamic Jihadâ??take your pick or mix â??n match.

MEChAâ??s news organ La Voz de Aztlan (â??the voice of Aztlanâ?) regularly and consistently prints opinions and â??newsâ? stories that vilify Israel and Jews, in general. Amongst others, one of its staff writers-Ernesto Cienfuegos-has written numerous anti-Semitic articles including but, not limited to â??Jews against Islam: The War of Cartoonsâ?, â??Jewish Maquiladora Owners Scam Tijuana Workersâ?, â??The Kosher Nostra Scam on the American Consumerâ?, â??Zionist Plot to take over Mexican Presidencyâ? and â??Jewish Rabbi gives three infants Herpesâ?. WHEW!

The site also blasts Los Angeles KFI talk-show host Bill Handel in its statement: â??The radio show is hosted by a Jew named Bill Handel who has a history of making obscene and racist remarks against non-Jewish ethnic, racial and religious groups including Mexicans.â? Another of its â??newsâ? stories includes â??Anti-Mexican Jewish Bigot Identifiedâ? in which it states: â??The racist Jew who filmed a video in which he humiliates a group of Mexican workers (Jornaleros) has been identified. La Voz de Aztlan has received information on the hateful Jew who produced the shameful video. This is more proof that these sinister, malevolent, malicious and nefarious people will stop at nothing.â? The site also firmly aligns itself with Islam. If one is looking for good old-fashioned no-holds-barred â??hate speech against Jewsâ?, La Voz de Aztlan is the site to visit.

And if that doesnâ??t curl your hair, current California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa are â??formerâ? MEChA members. But, one has to wonder if the â??formerâ? designation is accurate.

Note: This definitely takes MEChA and the Aztlan Movement out of the â??fringeâ? category and places it into the mainstream Hispanic Democrat camp. And it is patently chilling.

Most certainly, MEChAâ??s Aztlan Movement does not represent the majority of Hispanics in the United States. The mere fact that lawmakers in the US are members (or claim to be â??formerâ? members) should at least give all US citizens pauseâ??if not creating a call to action. This hate-filled organization is growing, folksâ??and so is its influence on other US lawmakers. Bear in mind, MEChAâ??s Aztlan Movement is also the organization that is working for the Reconquista (â??reconquestâ?) of the USâ?? Southwestern states, which include California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

Newsweek

Ever since he crossed into Mexico, José Moisés has had nothing but trouble. Now the 30-year-old Honduran mechanic is hunkered down with other young illegal migrants in a rail yard just north of Mexico City, waiting for nightfall to hop a northbound freight. He displays a pale line encircling his finger. He used to have a ring there, he saysâ??until Mexican cops slammed him against a squad car in the southern border state of Chiapas and grabbed it. “They took everything,” says Moisés. “Here the Central American has no value.”

As tough as the United States can be for workers who slip in from south of the border, Mexico is in a poor position to criticize. The problem goes far beyond the predatory gantlet of thugs and crooked cops facing defenseless transients like Moisés. There’s ample precedent in Mexico for just about everything the United States isâ??or isn’tâ??doing. Calling out the military? Mexicans may hate the new U.S. plan to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops on the border, but five years ago they cheered President Vicente Fox for sending thousands of Mexican soldiers to crack down on their southern frontier. Tougher laws? Hispanic-rights groups are enraged over U.S. efforts to criminalize undocumented aliensâ??yet since 1974, sneaking into Mexico has been punishable by up to two years in prison. Foot-dragging on amnesty? Fox has spent the past five years urging the United States to upgrade the status of millions of illegals from Mexico. Meanwhile, his own government has given legal status to only 15,000 foreigners without papers.
