Poll: Mitt Romney Is Candidate Most Voters Want To Get Into Bar Fight With

No doubt the supporters of the invasion are devastated. States all over the country will replicate the anti-illegal immigration effort in Oklahoma.

“The court is again confronted with plaintiffs bringing a broad array of constitutional and statutory challenges to a similarly broad array of state statutes,” Payne stated in the conclusion of an order filed Thursday. “Again, some plaintiffs ignore the need to describe the injuries actually caused by the challenged statutes, while the illegal alien plaintiffs complain of grievances that could best be remedied by simply compliance with federal law. Both categories of plaintiffs must be dismissed for lack of standing, either on constitutional or prudential grounds.”

Good Morning America

The former preacher Mike Huckabee has always reminded me of the Cardinal Roger Mahoney. Their eyes, body language, and tone of voice betray them. They are rehearsed and insincere when questioned about their support of illegal aliens, rapists, and pedophiles. They must practice for hours lying to themselves in the mirror.

September 7, 2001 - Four days before undocumented immigrants flew jets into the World Trade Center, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said NYC Is “Quite Tolerant Of Undocumented Immigration. This shouldn’t surprise you because I’ve been the Mayor a long time.”

Nice job Officer! We have to deport them before they drop their anchors.

LCSUN-NEWS

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) A Roswell police officer was removed from school campuses after turning a pregnant 18-year-old student over to immigration authorities.

Police Chief John Balderston defended the action by Officer Charlie Corn, a 10-year veteran who was working at Roswell High School as a student resource officer.

But he said Roswell Independent School District Superintendent Michael Gottlieb asked for Corn’s removal “because he didn’t want the officer checking on the immigration status of the students.”

Last week, the district and police department made a joint decision to remove all school resource officers, the Roswell Daily Record reported.

Gottlieb had no comment Thursday. (Coward)

The incident began after senior Karina Acosta was cited Nov. 29 for a parking violation and driving without a license. Balderston said she was given several days to produce a license, and when she did not, Corn pulled her from class Dec. 5.

While trying to confirm her identity, Corn learned she was an illegal immigrant, Balderston said. Corn detained her at the school before notifying federal immigration agents, the chief said.

Balderston said Acosta, who is five months pregnant, was deported to Mexico.

Issues divide ethnic groups
Washington Times
December 15 2007

Blacks, Hispanics and Asians have deep divisions and disagreements about equal opportunity, impartial criminal justice and the American dream, according to a new poll by New America Media.

But the data showing deep divisions among the three largest U.S. minority groups was offset by evidence that the groups also see themselves as having a shared destiny and view one another in some positive lights also.

California-based New America Media, a national collaboration of ethnic news organizations under the nonprofit Pacific News Service, funded the study, which found that many ethnic minorities hold to negative stereotypes about each other. For example, 44 percent of Hispanic respondents and 47 percent of Asians answered yes to a question about whether they were “generally afraid of African-Americans because they are responsible for most of the crime.”

Meanwhile, 46 percent of Hispanics and 52 percent of blacks responded yes to whether “most Asian business owners do not treat them with respect.” And 51 percent of blacks said they agreed that “Latin American immigrants are taking away jobs, housing and political power from the black community.”

The groups also differ in their opinions of broader U.S. society, with 74 percent of Hispanics and 64 percent of Asians strongly agreeing with the statement that “if you work hard, you will succeed in the United States,” against only 44 percent of blacks. Meanwhile, a comfortable majority of blacks ? 71 percent ? strongly agreed that “the criminal justice system in the United States favors the rich and powerful,” against 45 percent of Hispanics and 27 percent of Asians.

Moreover, the three groups trust whites more than the other two minority groups. The poll found that 61 percent of Hispanics, 54 percent of Asians and 47 percent of blacks would prefer to do business with whites than the other two groups. In all three cases, most of those who didn’t specify whites said they had no preference.

The multilingual phone poll of 1,105 blacks and various Asian and Hispanic national groups was conducted in August and September. Respondents all lived in areas where their minority group made up at least 10 percent of the population. The margin of error was five percentage points.

Still, there was common ground between the three groups on other issues, and not all the opinions widely held about the other two groups were negative ones……

For those of you who don’t know, Patriots Border Alliance is made up of former leaders of Chris Simcox’s Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. They broke off and formed their own group after Simcox refused to show them the books. Simcox was bringing in a ton of money for the border fence that didn’t turn out how investors had planned. People felt Simcox was pocketing the money for himself and giving nothing to the volunteers who were supporting themselves on the border and buying their own gear.

Bob Wright who heads PBA is a very good man.

Patriots Border Alliance

PRESS RELEASE
DECEMBER 12th 2007
PHOENIX AZ

PATRIOTS BORDER ALLIANCE:

The time has come for an official statement regarding the recent developments involving two of the real icons of the Minuteman movement. Developments of the last couple of days have left all Minutemen of all groups confused and angry. While we at Patriots Border Alliance cannot explain or defend the actions by Jim Gilchrist and Chris Simcox we can CLEARLY define our position on these issues.

First is Jim Gilchrist?s endorsement of Mike Huckabee. PBA does not support this endorsement nor does it support Mike Huckabee?s candidacy. Mike Huckabee has a clear record as an open borders, amnesty advocate. In addition to his support for those things we believe will be the destruction of the Republic, he also was vicious in his attacks on both the Minutemen and those legislators who tried to fulfill their constitutional responsibility. He has loudly denounced us as ?racist? and ?xenophobic?. No off the cuff throw away apology at a press conference can erase that. PBA believes that this issue is one that we cannot compromise on. To compromise on any aspect of this issue is to destroy the legitimacy of law in our Republic. One of the side effects of this whole illegal immigration problem is how it has degraded the respect for the law, and our entire political landscape. Mike Huckabee was an active player in this degradation, and Jim?s endorsement of this man is hurtful, and incomprehensible.

As for Simcox?s statements about supporting benefits for the children of illegal aliens, this is a worse betrayal of what we as Minutemen stand for. It cheapens our efforts all those dark, cold, lonely nights on the border as we stood post over a country already betrayed by the politicians we had elected. Two seconds of logical reasoning brings us to the realization that in order for the children of illegal aliens to collect those benefits, then the illegal alien parents must be allowed to stay in the country. Can you say amnesty? There is no other conclusion to be drawn. How can he explain these statements? None of us signed up, spent thousands of dollars of our own money, turned our lives over to this cause to see one of its primary leaders support what is in effect an amnesty. Even if it is ?for the children?.

Fresh Direct, the online grocery delivery operation that caters to affluent and overworked New Yorkers, lost dozens of employees this week after federal immigration officials notified the company that its employee records were under investigation.

The company sent its workers a memo on Sunday and Monday saying that Immigration and Customs Enforcement planned to inspect the records of every employee and asked them to update their information and provide documents, like Social Security cards, to prove employment eligibility. At least 40 warehouse workers who could not produce proof that they were authorized to work in the United States quit or were suspended.

At the company?s warehouse in Long Island City, Queens, the work force, largely immigrants (they mean illegal aliens), reacted with panic and distress as news of the inquiry spread.

?Some people just walked out the door,? said Sandy Pope, president of a Teamsters local that is one of two unions competing to organize the workers. ?They were sobbing, with garbage bags full of their clothes from their lockers. They didn?t feel they had any chance of fixing their paperwork, so they just left.?

No one else wanted him.

Jim also received a fat paycheck from Huckabee. I don’t know how much but I know he received money.

Gilchrist loves attention and he loves money.

When money went missing from MMP, the board members wanted to get the books straight but Gilchrist and his dishonest friend Steve Eichler turned it into an us vs. them contest.

Jim was to remain the MMP spokesman but the board members wanted Jim and Eichler to let go of the bank account. Jim calls this a “hijacking” and he’s been blaming the board members for his fall from grace over the past year.

Now Jim has done it again. He’s shown his arrogance and lack of moral character for all to see by taking money from an open border globalist pig.

This time Jim can’t blame his fall from grace on anyone but himself.

SAN DIEGO — An Oceanside man has been sentenced to nearly three and a half years in federal prison for his role in an illegal-immigrant smuggling operation based in North County, court documents show.

Ricardo Roberto Gonzalez-Camacena, 37, pleaded guilty in August to charges of conspiracy to transport and move illegal immigrants within the United States and filing a false tax return, according to court documents.

U.S. District Judge Barry Ted Moskowitz also ordered Gonzalez-Camacena to forfeit to the United States his Oceanside residence and more than $343,000 in cash.

Gonzalez-Camacena’s attorney, Philip DeMassa, said Wednesday that his client received the sentence recommended in his plea agreement. The prison term was at the low end of what federal sentencing guidelines provided for, but was more severe than what other defendants in the case received because Moskowitz made a finding that Gonzalez-Camacena was the leader of the group, DeMassa said.

Fernando Orozco-Trevizo told police if he got deported
again, “he will come back for the victim,”

Desert Morning News

WEST VALLEY CITY ? A woman who police say was chained to an engine block by her boyfriend so she wouldn’t leave their apartment was rescued late last week thanks to a neighboring good Samaritan. Her boyfriend was located and arrested Tuesday.

Details of the bizarre incident were released Wednesday by police.

Investigators believe the woman was held captive in her apartment, near 2900 West and 3500 South, for several days, possibly a week or more. When her boyfriend was home, she was allowed to roam freely in the apartment. But when he left, a chain was tied around her ankles, said West Valley police Capt. Tom McLachlan. The other end of the 20-foot dog chain was tied to a 6-cylinder engine in the closet, he said.

The chain was long enough for her to reach a restroom, but she could not leave the room. The door leading into the room had deadbolts on both sides, McLachlan said, and both were locked. The windows in the room were screwed shut so they couldn’t be opened. Additionally, the apartment had no phone.

Last Friday morning, the desperate woman wrote “call 911″ in the condensation on her window. The first floor window, which was in the back of the building, faced a neighboring trailer court. The nearest trailer was about 20 yards away.

Fernando Orozco-Trevizo, 32, was arrested Tuesday while working construction in South Jordan. When investigators asked him about chaining up his girlfriend, he said, “It was just a game,” according to jail records. Orozco-Trevizo further told investigators that he believed his girlfriend was having an affair with someone else in the apartment complex and that she got her injuries from falling down.

Orozco-Trevizo was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of aggravated kidnapping and assault. He also had an immigration detainer put on him for aggravated re-entry into the United States. Orozco-Trevizo told police if he got deported again, “he will come back for the victim,” according to jail records.

“Let the Gringos pay!”

OneNewsNow

Huckabee continues to be dogged by a lingering controversy over the role he played in establishing a Mexican consulate office in Little Rock that was financed by Arkansas taxpayers and local businesses. The permanent facility for the consulate, located near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, opened in April amid fanfare by supporters and protests of some who are concerned about it causing a surge of illegal immigrants into the Natural State.

According to The Morning News (Northwest Arkansa), the idea of establishing a Mexican consulate in Arkansas was first discussed by former Governor Mike Huckabee after his trip to Mexico City in 2003. Dr. Jerome Corsi recently published an article in WorldNetDaily which quotes several critics of Huckabee, who contend that the then-governor worked with some of the state’s most prominent and politically powerful businesses [Tyson Foods] to draw illegal aliens to the state to accept low-paying jobs.

Corsi claims Huckabee and the state “courted” then-Mexican President Vicente Fox to establish the consulate. “Mike Huckabee took an airplane ride in 2003, was going on down to see Vicente Fox with one of his top economic advisors,” he says, “and that started discussions where basically Arkansas came and courted Vicente Fox, saying put a Mexican consulate here in Little Rock, please.”

The investigative journalist believes the state may have overstepped its authority in urging the Mexicans to come to Little Rock, and contends the state essentially “shelled out” office space for the consulate because the Mexican government preferred to “let the gringos pay.” Corsi questions if a consortium of businesses had the legal right to “support the consular presence” during the first three years, including what appears to be the costs of building a permanent consular facility in Little Rock.

“I’m not sure that Arkansas law permits the state government to subsidize … another foreign government [in that fashion],” he shares. “I haven’t yet identified who the corporations are who paid this lease, and I still don’t know if the Mexican consulate is paying its own way or not, or if the private corporations in Arkansas are still funding the bill.”

This article paints a very mild picture of the disgust we all have of Jim Gilchrist. Gilchrist better not spend all the money Huckabee paid him all in one place because his glory days are over. Chis Simcox has had his own problems, but I can assure you that Bob Wright mentioned in this article is a true Patriot.

Washington Times

Minuteman co-founder James Gilchrist’s endorsement of presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has spurred a backlash among illegal-immigration opponents who say the former Arkansas governor is soft on immigration enforcement.

“Mike Huckabee is pro-amnesty and favors a path to citizenship for illegal aliens currently in the U.S. that would require a lifting of current penalties,” said William Gheen, whose 25,000-member Americans for Legal Immigration sent mass mailings yesterday to more than 300 pro-enforcement groups.

“Huckabee has released an immigration plan that contains the deceptive ‘touch back’ provision that the pushers of amnesty tried on us in Washington this year,” he said. “He wants to trick the nation by having illegal aliens leave for a day to pick up new papers at an office set up across the border and then walk right back.”

But Chris Simcox, who co-founded the Minuteman Project with Mr. Gilchrist and now heads the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, said no national Minuteman group has endorsed Mr. Huckabee, adding that only “one individual Minuteman has personally endorsed him.”

“Jim Gilchrist speaks only for Jim Gilchrist. He does not speak for the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, nor is he nationally representative of most patriots in the Minuteman movement, who under no circumstances could ignore the failed record nor endorse the duplicitous plan recently rolled out by candidate Mike Huckabee,” Mr. Simcox said.

His Minuteman organization totals more than 10,000 members and has chapters in all 50 states.

Bob Wright, who heads the Patriots’ Border Alliance, another Minuteman splinter group, said although Mr. Gilchrist helped move the issue of illegal entry into the U.S. “to it’s rightful place on the national stage,” his endorsement of Mr. Huckabee “is at best disturbing.”

“While I believe it is possible for a professional politician to change his mind on a subject as he becomes more informed, I have serious doubts that is the case with Huckabee,” Mr. Wright said. “His past rhetoric about the goals of Minutemen everywhere has been vicious ? parroting the tired and discredited foolishness that an American citizen’s desire to see the law enforced is somehow racist or xenophobic.”

Mr. Huckabee, who apologized to Mr. Gilchrist for not supporting the Minuteman project when it was first formed, said this week that he was honored to receive the endorsement.

“All of us want a policy where people come to this country through the front door, not the back door,” he said.
