Mexico’s human rights agency canceled plans yesterday to investigate whether new Prince William County policies violate the rights of illegal immigrants over fears that its visit might cause an uproar in a county already roiled by anti-immigrant sentiment.

‘This humanitarian mission has been canceled because there was an intention to manipulate it that we will not be a party to,’ said Ricardo Juarez, a leader of the Virginia group Mexicans Without Borders, which had been coordinating the visit.

Although Mexico’s National Commission on Human Rights has conducted several fact-finding missions in border areas and major immigrant gateway cities in the United States in the past year, the planned visit to Prince William would have been the first to examine the impact of efforts by smaller jurisdictions to combat illegal immigration through local laws.

But the commission dropped the plan after Juarez said he came to fear that the visit would be used to political advantage by Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large), chairman of the Board of County Supervisors and a leading proponent of the crackdown on illegal immigration.

Juarez said the visit was being ‘used as a weapon by Corey Stewart against a community that is already suffering the consequences of his policies of hate.’

Stewart, who is up for reelection next month, denied that he sought to undermine the visit but did express concerns.

‘There is a sovereignty issue,’ he said. ‘You’ve got a foreign government trying to interfere with the working of a U.S. locality.’

Prince William emerged as one of the most prominent examples of anti-immigrant activism earlier this month, when county supervisors voted unanimously to empower police to check the immigration status of anyone who breaks a law. The board also voted to cut off certain services to illegal immigrants such as bus tours for senior citizens, leadership training programs for adults, and rental and mortgage assistance. Illegal immigrants will also be prohibited from getting business licenses.

Mauricio Farah, head of the Mexican commission’s migrant rights division, said in a phone interview from Mexico City: ‘These kinds of ordinances are criminalizing people who are not criminals, who have only come here to work. We respect the right of every sovereign nation to make its immigration laws, but a person’s entitlement to basic human rights is not dependent on their immigration status. And these kinds of discriminatory, xenophobic and even racist laws are stripping people of their fundamental right to political, economic and social development.’

Farah and other members of the team had planned to question immigrants from Mexico and other countries about their experiences at a meeting Monday night.

The commission is an independent public institution that is principally charged with serving as a government watchdog, so the team would have directed any recommendations to the Mexican consulates or government.

Although the visit to Prince William was abandoned, the group will visit next week with members of Congress and U.S. advocacy groups that are challenging local anti-immigration measures.

Athens, GA (AP) — A federal jury has awarded $415,000 to two former poultry plant employees who were fired for complaining about fraud, hiring discrimination and other abuses by supervisors.

The U.S. District Court jury found that ConAgra Poultry Co.?later bought by Pittsburg, Texas-based Pilgrim’s Pride Corp.?fired the women in September 2003 after they blew the whistle on an assistant to the human resources manager who made a fake Social Security card for an illegal immigrant who worked a side job for the plant’s general manager.

The panel also found that the manager’s assistant authorized falsified insurance coverage so another employee could claim his sister and nephew?also illegal immigrants?as dependents on his health plan.

In a decision Tuesday, the jury awarded Scarlet Reyna and Maria Ortega a combined $415,000 for lost wages and benefits, as well as emotional pain and mental anguish. They worked in the human resources department of the poultry plant in northern Clarke County.

The case was among the first of its kind to go to trial since Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which provides protection for whistleblowers, plaintiffs’ attorney John F. Beasley Jr. said.

‘Ms. Reyna and Ms. Ortega are very courageous women,’ Beasley said Thursday. ‘They were loyal to the company but refused to tolerate racial hostility and dishonesty by their supervisors.’

Attorneys for ConAgra and Pilgrim’s Pride did not return telephone calls from The Athens Banner-Herald seeking comment. Spokespeople for Pilgrim’s Pride did not immediately respond to the AP’s request for comment Friday.

Most of the traffic is local and legal. But smugglers ? going north and south ? know the roads are unguarded. In August, a Border Patrol agent had to fire his weapon at a car he stopped not far from Blair Road that had tried to run him down before fleeing back into Quebec.

‘There’s a lot more going on out here than people realize,’ said U.S. Border Patrol Supervisor Bradley Curtis.

Tests show flaws

There are about a dozen similar unmarked back roads between Vermont and Quebec and many more across the 3,987-mile U.S.-Canada border. At a time when the United States is trying to secure its borders against illegal immigrants and potential terrorists, some see the challenges as a direct threat to national security.

The Government Accountability Office recently released a report in Washington about the security of the U.S.-Canada border.

As part of some of the tests, investigators carried a red duffel bag across the border simulating radioactive material that could be brought into the U.S. by a terrorist.

In others, they walked back and forth across the border where roads in the U.S. and Canada were only separated by a few feet, but they weren’t approached by Border Patrol agents.

‘That border is so long, frankly, the security on that border has really not increased too much since the French and Indian War,’ John Cooney, the GAO’s assistant director for forensic audits and special investigations, said Sept. 27 during testimony in Washington before the Senate Finance Committee.

Lou Dobbs Vs. Gov. Spitzer, Live on CNN

Lou Dobbs Vs. Gov. Spitzer, Live on CNN
Associated Press
October 29, 2007

NEW YORK (AP) ? Lou Dobbs is sorry about calling Gov. Eliot Spitzer an idiot.

Sincerely.

As for ripping the New York Democrat as arrogant, spineless and “a spoiled rich kid brat,” the host of CNN’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” stands by those nationally broadcast broadsides.

Absolutely.

Dobbs has made Spitzer an almost daily target over his recent plan to ease restrictions on illegal immigrants seeking New York state driver’s licenses, mixing vitriol with sarcasm while endlessly lambasting the governor’s decision.


The lifelong Republican has taken on politicians of every stripe, as when he blasted the Bush administration over port security. But his nightly diatribe against Spitzer is notable for its intensity, and for elevating a state proposal onto the national stage.

“What he’s doing is an outrageous, arrogant abuse of power,” Dobbs said in an interview before a recent show. “He’s pandering to a constituency aligned directly against the interests of U.S. and New York state citizens.”

Dobbs’ ire boiled over Tuesday night when he ripped Spitzer as an idiot ? and then offered an on-air mea culpa.

“I’m the idiot,” Dobbs said. “Governor, I apologize for calling you one. Your policies are idiotic. But I have to apologize for calling you an idiot.”

Dobbs shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for a bouquet of roses (the state flower) and a thank-you note from Spitzer.

“Mr. Dobbs has clearly demonstrated that he is not interested in a real debate on New York’s driver’s license policy change,” said Jennifer Givner, a Spitzer spokeswoman. “He has repeatedly refused to offer balanced coverage of the issue.”

Dobbs has turned the first-term governor into a verbal pinata over his September announcement that illegal immigrants with valid foreign passports could obtain a driver’s license.

Spitzer has said the plan, set to go into effect this December, would make New York safer by bringing its 1 million illegal immigrants “out of the shadows.”

The decision reversed a 2002 order by former Gov. George Pataki issued after the 9/11 attacks, and placed Spitzer directly in Dobbs’ cable crosshairs. But Dobbs, while perhaps the highest-profile critics of the plan, is not alone: a state poll showed 72 percent of New Yorkers opposed Spitzer on this issue, and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has also expressed skepticism.

Spitzer, in a speech last week, noted that “despite the hysteria this policy has created in some circles, it is simply a return to the policy we had for most of our state’s history.”

Dobbs is hardly swayed by the history lesson, complaining the relaxed license requirement could produce voter fraud and raise security issues. Spitzer has ignored repeated invitations to appear on the program, Dobbs said; the show has turned down guests supporting Spitzer, including former national counterterrorism adviser Richard A. Clarke, according to Givner.

Dobbs, who has made immigration one of his show’s centerpiece issues, was criticized last week in a New York Times editorial for his Spitzer bashing.

“Mr. Dobbs has trained his biggest guns on Mr. Spitzer, branding him with puerile epithets like `spoiled rich-kid brat’ and depicting his policy as some sort of sanctuary program for the 9/11 hijackers,” the Times wrote. “Someday there may be a calm debate, in Albany and nationally, about immigrant drivers.

“With Mr. Dobbs at the megaphone, for now there is only histrionics and outrage.”

Dobbs isn’t expecting any apology from the Times. And he has few kind words for the newspaper.

“The New York Times is the house organ for Gov. Spitzer,” Dobbs said. “They’re wrong on this issue, as they are on many others.”

Dobbs draws a nightly audience of roughly 800,000, making him second in CNN viewers to Larry King’s nightly program. He has no intention of lightening up on Spitzer.

“Why should I?” Dobbs asked. “He’s wrong. This issue is of vital importance to the state of New York and the nation. My job as an advocacy journalist is to confront directly abuses of power and wrongheaded politics.”

And sure enough, 24 hours after his “idiot” apology, Dobbs was again taking shots at Spitzer.

“This governor is irresponsible,” Dobbs told his audience. “It’s clear arrogance. … He has declared himself to be what people hoped he would not be ? and that is an arrogant tool of special interests.”

NY Senators mum on Spitzer’s ID plan for immigrants
News Day
October 29, 2007

WASHINGTON - New York’s plan to create three types of driver’s licenses, including one for illegal immigrants, has everyone talking _ everyone except the state’s Democratic senators, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Charles Schumer.

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, a fellow Democrat, announced over the weekend that he had struck a deal with federal homeland security officials to create a three-tiered state system of licenses.

In doing so, New York agreed to adopt Bush administration goals on tighter identification security, but Spitzer stuck to his much-criticized plan to allow illegal immigrants to get licenses.

The license debate, hard-wired to issues like immigration, terrorism, and civil liberties, may simply be too radioactive for either a presidential candidate like Clinton or a powerful senator like Schumer.

For years, Clinton and Schumer seemingly couldn’t stop talking about the government’s looming border ID rules.

Now it’s different.

“She’s running for president, and this is a land-mine no matter what you do,” said Doug Muzzio, a professor of politics at Baruch College in New York. “The best strategy for her is to do what she’s doing: keep quiet, because whatever you said, you will tick off constituencies, whether it’s in the primary or the general election.”

For Schumer, the danger is less obvious, but still very real to the third-ranking Democrat in the U.S. Senate.

Also, Spitzer’s popularity among New York voters is sinking fast, lashed to the political dead weight of his license plan.

“Spitzer himself has become toxic,” said Muzzio. “It’s not only the message, it’s the messenger.”

Under Spitzer’s plan, one card which will be as secure as a passport and would be valid to get the user across the Canadian border, another will be good enough for domestic air travel, and a third won’t be acceptable for air travel but will be available to illegal immigrants and others.

“The plan we put forth makes perfect sense,” Spitzer said in a teleconference from Portugal while attending and environmental conference of government leaders. “This is the structure that squares security, maximizes participation, and permits law enforcement to know who in the state is driving, and that is the series of objectives we laid out.”

Sen. Clinton has spent years urging the Bush administration to scale back plans to require passports to cross the U.S. border into Canada, saying that would be too costly and cumbersome for communities like Buffalo. She has also rejected the suggestion that better driver’s licenses could be used instead, noting they wouldn’t be available to children.

On Monday, her spokesman Philippe Reines said she continues to review Spitzer’s plan.

“Sen. Clinton strongly believes that a federal solution is needed to our immigration crisis,” said Reines. “She is still studying the governor’s most recent proposal, but understands the impetus behind his plan _ that federal inaction on comprehensive immigration reform has created conditions where states feel compelled to act on their own.”…..

Democrats and Republicans Share Values on Immigration
SYS-Con Media
October 29, 2007

Democrats and Republicans agree on a surprising number of issues related to criminal aliens in the United States according to a recent Zogby International / Associated Television News online poll conducted October 23-25, 2007 of 4,702 likely voters. The poll’s margin of error is +/-1.5 percentage points. Poll results show that America is of one mind when it comes to criminal aliens: If you break the law in your native country or in the U.S. you should not be a U.S. citizen, and those criminal aliens who commit a felony should be locked up here in the U.S.

Democrats and Republicans share similar support for who they felt should be ineligible for U.S. citizenship: aliens convicted of a felony. 48% of Democrats were more likely to deny citizenship to an alien convicted of a felony while 54% of Republicans who felt citizenship should be denied to criminal aliens whether the crime was a felony or a misdemeanor. Overall, 37% percent of voters felt any alien convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor should be ineligible for citizenship. Thirty-four percent of voters felt only those aliens convicted of a felony should be ineligible…..

The poll also asked voters which scenarios they would support for locking up criminal aliens. An overwhelming majority of voters, including Democrats and Republicans supported a wide variety of scenarios including: commission of a felony, smuggling human cargo or human trafficking, dealing drugs, engaging in gang activities or criminals acts. Only 49% of Democrats agreed that re-entering the U.S. after being deported should warrant being locked up while 85% of Republicans and 67% of Independents were much more supportive of locking up aliens who try to re-enter the country.

I don’t know the mother’s immigration status, but they say in the article that’s she’s only been in the country for a month.

SMITHVILLE, Tenn.- The police chief and several others struggle to make sense of the case. Investigators plan to charge an 18-year-old woman who delivered a baby boy Friday night and allegedly tossed him in a trash can.

Policeman and parent Smithville Police Chief Richard Jennings struggles to make sense of the case.

“I mean, all she would have had to have done — there were 42 people, including the staff there, if she’d just said something. Excuse me, but she didn’t,” said Jennings.

The chief and TBI plan to charge Lillian Sosa,18, who has been here from Mexico only a month, with second degree murder.

According to investigators, Sosa gave birth to a baby boy in the ladies’ room of El Rancho Mexican Restaurant. They said she tossed the newborn in the trash. The restaurant owner said the nearly six pound baby was still alive, but died on the way to the hospital.

The mystery mother had vanished, so police immediately put out an all call to surrounding emergency rooms to be on the lookout for a woman who’s just given birth. Ms. Sosa never surfaced for the medical care she so desperately needed.

It was the police who insisted Sosa get help after her arrest.

“If she hadn’t had the surgery, there’s a very good possibility she would have died,” said Jennings.

Sosa has been living with an aunt in rural Dekalb County. She worked at El Rancho in Smithville less than two weeks.

Chief Jennings said he will never forget the crime scene.

Sosa is at a Cookeville hospital. She is under police surveillance around the clock. The chief expects her to be released sometime Monday and taken directly to jail. Sosa has reportedly told detectives the child was hers.

An autopsy in Nashville will tell investigators why the newborn boy stopped breathing. Police hope DNA tests will positively match him with his mother.

An illegal immigrant was sentenced today in Chesapeake Circuit Court to a year in prison for having sex with a 13-year-old girl and producing nude images of the child.

Carlos De La Cruz Ramos, fomerly of the 3700 block of S. Military Highway in Chesapeake, was arrested in May after a Wal-Mart store clerk processed film he had dropped off that showed images of a nude child, police said. Ramos was convicted in August of producing child pornography and carnal knowledge, both felonies carrying maximum punishments of 10 years in prison.

Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney David Whitted said Ramos was 19 when he committed the crime.

Judge E. Preston Grissom sentenced Ramos to five years with four years suspended on each conviction. His prison time will run together, meaning Ramos will serve an active sentence of one year behind bars. Grissom also ordered that Ramos, upon his release from prison, be turned over to federal authorities for deportation. Grissom ordered that Ramos register as a sex offender in the event he is not deported. If he ever returned to the United States, it would be a violation of his suspended sentence.

With the aid of an interpreter, Ramos stood in court today and responded “no” when asked if he had anything to say. Ramos, who has a sixth-grade education, has been in jail since his arrest March 8.

Hernando Today

SPRING HILL ? For decades, it?s been considered the best way to cultivate patriotism in young schoolchildren in the United States: Rising daily, hand over heart, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

So does it matter if it?s not said in English?

Some local parents say yes, and are raising objections over last week?s recitation of the pledge in Spanish during Hispanic Heritage month at Spring Hill?s J.D. Floyd Elementary School.

But school district officials say no ? that it was a one-time teaching exercise designed to broaden the horizons of young children, nothing more.

So who?s right?

Spring Hill resident Elyse DiMartino said she first learned of the ?nuevo pledge? when her second-grader came home from school Oct. 17 and announced that his class had recited the pledge first in English, then in Spanish that day.

?I thought he was kidding,? DiMartino said, whose two other children also attend J.D. Floyd.

When she called the school, however, she said Principal Marcia Austin confirmed the news, citing the exercise as a learning experience and way of recognizing diversity.

?I told her I?m offended by (saying the pledge in Spanish),? DiMartino said.

While Austin was not available for comment at press time, Hernando superintendent Wayne Alexander confirmed that such decisions are within individual principals? jurisdictions to decide.

?I expect the principals ? and our teachers, in general ? to come up with ways to celebrate, reward, promote and acknowledge our diversity,? he said.

Alexander said the activity was a new one, suggested by a student, as part of national Hispanic Heritage Month.

Union Workers Upset With Pro-Illegal Immigration Leadership

Yale Daily News

At the urging of a local immigration-reform group, a number of Yale dining hall workers, custodians and service personnel signed a petition on Thursday urging Local 35 leaders to abandon the union?s policy of transferring member dues to a pro-immigration rights national affiliate.

Arguing that illegal immigration depresses wages and causes unemployment, members of the Community Watchdog Project stood on campus yesterday handing out fliers and soliciting employees on break or in between shifts.

?The membership is highly upset that the union will turn their backs on their American workers,? petition organizer Alan Felder said.

While it is still unclear how many signatures the group?s petition garnered ? and will garner in the coming days ? the Project?s campaign has already met opposition from Local 35 President Bob Proto, who said Thursday that supporters of the petition are acting ?mean-spirited.? He added that he thinks its execution was ill-conceived.

?Our folks don?t really have the time to grab onto certain issues ? some of them know about the issues, but most of them I would rather have them be more knowledgeable about the stance,? Proto said. ?So for these guys to go do this ? is absolutely the wrong road.?

Standing in front of the Noah Porter Gate between Calhoun and Berkeley colleges, Felder ? who is a Yale University plumber and a Local 35 member ? collected signatures from 10 of 12 dining hall workers who passed by in the span of 40 minutes.

Earlier Thursday morning, Felder stood at the James Street Physical Plant, where Yale houses its off-site workers and materials.

Most of the workers Felder and other organizers approached yesterday quickly agreed to sign the petition before leaving to cash their work checks.

Walter Moore For LA Mayor “We’re Losing A War We Don’t Even Know We’re In”

He graduated with honors from Princeton University and Georgetown Law, and has a degree in Public and International Affairs. His platform sets forth specific policy proposals on illegal aliens, traffic, crime, excessive taxes, over-crowding, and a raft of other problems.

SPITZ HITS REVERSE WITH LICENSE DEAL
New York Post
October 27, 2007

ALBANY - Following intense pressure, Gov. Spitzer is preparing to backpedal on his plan to issue state driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants as he nears an agreement with Homeland Security in which undocumented aliens can obtain licenses as long as the cards are not recognized by the federal government, The Post has learned.

Under the expected deal, which could be announced as soon as today, the state will opt into the federal REAL ID program by agreeing to create the type of dual licensing system Spitzer had originally shot down, sources said yesterday.

Under the plan, illegal aliens would still be able to obtain driver’s licenses from the state, as Spitzer has pushed for all along.

But such licenses eventually would contain wording that they are not federally recognized, meaning they cannot be used by individuals as acceptable identification to board planes or enter federal facilities such as courthouses, the sources said.

The licenses, which would be available to illegal aliens and citizens alike, would not contain information about a person’s legal status - something the Spitzer administration felt was important to avoid them becoming a “scarlet letter,” a source said.

A tougher, federally recognized license, requiring applicants to provide Social Security numbers or letters showing they are in the country legally but not eligible for such numbers, would be available only to U.S. citizens and legal aliens.

Those licenses, which would contain special computer chips with personal identifying information, could be used not only to enter federal facilities and board planes, but also to cross the border, federal officials said.

It’s unclear just how soon the dual system will be up and running because the state has to put the necessary technology in place and design the two different licenses, the officials said……

“Immigrant” Groups Accuse Spitzer of Stunning Betrayal :)

Governor Accused of Betraying Principles
New York Times
October 28, 2007

Gov. Eliot Spitzer?s retreat from his plan to permit illegal immigrants to obtain the same kind of driver?s licenses as other New Yorkers drew angry reactions yesterday from civil liberties advocates and immigrant groups, some of whom described the shift as a stunning betrayal.

The governor has been under fierce assault from conservative groups and others since proposing last month to allow illegal immigrants to get New York driver?s licenses. But joined by the federal secretary of homeland security, Michael Chertoff, in Washington yesterday, the governor announced a starkly different version of his plan.

It calls for separate tiers of licenses. New Yorkers who could provide stringent proof of legal residency could get the new federally recognized license known as Real ID. The licenses available to illegal residents would not serve as federal identification.

?What a huge political flip,? said Chung-Wha Hong, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition.

?He?s now embracing and letting his good name be used to promote something that has been widely known in the immigrant community as one of the most anti-immigrant pieces of legislation to come out of Congress,? Ms. Hong said.

She said having separate licenses would amount to a scarlet letter for illegal immigrants. ?I know I?m speaking for millions of immigrants when I say I just feel so thoroughly betrayed.?The separate licenses could also serve as an invitation for law enforcement to arrest anyone carrying one on immigration charges, said Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union. She added that the new proposal could send illegal immigrants further into the shadows, compelling them to drive with forged or no licenses and without insurance.

?This flip-flopping is bowing to the fear-mongering of the Bush administration and turns New York into a poster child for policies based on fear rather than public safety,? she said……

MADD vs. Mothers Against Illegal Aliens

Washington Times

Watch just released CNN video MADD against MAIA.

Michelle Dallacroce was hopping mad when she received a letter from Mothers Against Drunk Driving demanding she change the name of her organization, Mothers Against Illegal Aliens.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Mrs. Dallacroce said. “I don’t know who would be confused by this. We don’t even have the same acronym.”

Mrs. Dallacroce, president of the Phoenix-based advocacy group, received a certified letter Oct. 10 stating that MADD owns the rights to the name “Mothers Against” and giving her 10 days to stop using it.

“While we do not oppose the name of your organization as a whole, we cannot permit the term ‘Mothers Against’ to be used in such a manner since it creates a likelihood of confusion to the public as to any affiliation with Mothers Against Drunk Driving,” the letter stated. “MADD cannot be associated with your organization and the use of ‘Mothers Against’ gives a strong implication of a relationship with MADD.”

Mrs. Dallacroce fired back with a terse reply: “No!”

An official from MADD could not be reached for comment.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of organizations that use the name “Mothers Against,” including Mothers Against War, Mothers Against Cancer, Mothers Against Guns and Mothers Against Medical Error.

Why MADD would single out MAIA isn’t clear, although Mrs. Dallacroce has her own theory. She contends that MADD fears running afoul of immigration advocacy groups, and at least one MADD official agrees with her.

Virginia Faircloth, president and founder of MADD’s York County, S.C., chapter, resigned last week after learning of the threat against MAIA, saying that MADD has turned a blind eye to the problem of drunken driving by illegal aliens.

She said she was told by national leaders to remove a link on her Web site to the Jackson-Avery Foundation, an organization she started with a friend whose husband was killed by an illegal alien driving drunk.

“They said their biggest concern was they didn’t want anyone to think MADD was taking a stand on illegal immigration,” Mrs. Faircloth said. “They worry too much about politics and they forget why they’re there.”

She said she confronted MADD National President Glynn Birch, who admitted the group hadn’t sent letters to any other “Mothers Against” organizations.

“I said, ‘You say you don’t want to take a stand on illegal immigration, but by sending that letter [to MAIA], you have,’ ” Mrs. Faircloth said.
