Poll: Americans Prefer HR4437 Over Amnesty

Posted by The Watchdog - May 3rd, 2006
Center for Immigration Studies

A new Zogby poll of likely voters, using neutral language (i.e., avoiding the words ‘’amnesty'’ or ‘’illegal alien'’), finds that Americans prefer the House of Representatives’ enforcement-only bill by 2-1 over Senate proposals to legalize illegal immigrants and greatly increase legal immigration. The poll was conducted for the Center for Immigration Studies. Complete results are online.

* On immigration generally, Americans want less, not more, immigration. Only 26 percent said immigrants were assimilating fine and that immigration should continue at current levels, compared to 67 percent who said immigration should be reduced so we can assimilate those already here.

* While the Senate is considering various bills that would increase legal immigration from 1 million to 2 million a year, only 2 percent of Americans believe current immigration is too low. This was true for virtually every grouping in the survey by ethnicity, income, age, religion, region, party, or ideology.

* When offered by itself, there is strong support for the House bill: 69 percent said it was a good or very good idea when told that it tries to make illegals go home by fortifying the border, forcing employer verification, and encouraging greater cooperation with local law enforcement, while not increasing legal immigration; 27 percent said it was a bad or very bad idea.

* Support for the House approach was widespread, with 81 percent of Republicans, 72 percent of independents, 57 percent of Democrats, and 53 percent of Hispanics saying it was good or very good idea.

* When offered by itself, there is also some support for the Senate approach, though not as much as for the House bill: 42 percent said the Senate approach was a good or very good idea when told it would allow illegal immigrants to apply for legal status provided they met certain criteria, and it would significantly increase legal immigration and increase enforcement of immigration laws; 50 percent said it was a bad or very bad idea.

* There were few groups in which a majority supported the Senate plan, even when presented by itself. Exceptions included Hispanics, 62 percent of whom said it was a good or very good idea, and the most liberal voters (progressives), 54 percent of whom approved of it.

* When given three choices (House approach, Senate approach, or mass deportation), the public tends to reject both the Senate plan and mass deportations in favor of the House bill; 28 percent want the Senate plan, 12 percent want mass deportations, while 56 percent want the House approach.

* But when given a choice between just the House and Senate approaches, without the choice of mass deportations, the public prefers the House approach 64 percent to 30 percent.

* One reason the public does not like legalization is that they are skeptical of the need for illegal-immigrant labor. An overwhelming majority of 77 percent said there are plenty of Americans to fill low-wage jobs if employers pay more and treat workers better; just 15 percent said there are not enough Americans for such jobs.

* Another reason the public does not like Senate proposals to legalize illegals and double legal immigration is that 73 percent said they had little or no confidence in the ability of the government to screen these additional applicants to weed out terrorists and criminals.

* The public also does not accept the argument we have tried and failed to enforce the law: 71 percent felt that past enforcement efforts have been ‘’grossly inadequate,'’ while only 19 percent felt we had made a ‘’real effort'’ to enforce our laws.

AZ Sheriff’s Posse To Patrol Desert

Posted by The Watchdog - May 3rd, 2006
AZ Central

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced Tuesday that 100 deputies and volunteer posse would begin patrolling the desert to stem the flow of undocumented immigrants into the county.

Deputies and posse members would patrol county roadways and desert areas looking for suspicious activity, such as human trafficking and drug smuggling, Arpaio said. Deputies usually uncover these activities while making routine traffic stops, he added.

“The message has to get out one day that we’re not going to put up with (illegal immigration),” Arpaio said.

Arpaio said he hopes jailing the immigrants under a new state anti-smuggling law will help close the “revolving door” of undocumented immigrants who return to the United States after they are sent home.

CA Lawmakers Seek To Cut Benefits To Illegals

Posted by The Watchdog - May 3rd, 2006
Daily News

Even as the national debate rages over illegal immigration, California legislators are weighing bills that take aim at the issue on fronts ranging from such public benefits as driver’s licenses and in-state tuition rates to better investigation of the citizenship status of state prison inmates.

Many of the bills are authored by Republican legislators looking to reduce public benefits to undocumented immigrants and investigate what they cost the state in resources and infrastructure.

One bill would eliminate in-state discounted tuition rates for undocumented immigrants to attend community colleges and the California State University system. Another would allow the governor to declare a state of emergency based on illegal immigration. And another would have the state do a more thorough job investigating the citizenship status of those in prison.

Democrats have opposed most of the efforts, and some are looking at expanding benefits for illegal immigrants, such as Sen. Gil Cedillo’s effort to once again pass legislation that would allow undocumented immigrants to obtain California driver’s licenses.

Reconquista is Real

Posted by The Watchdog - May 3rd, 2006
Human Event Online

There are none so blind as those who will not see. While the mainstream media heaped praise on the “peaceful” May Day protesters and newspapers plastered sympathetic photos of the pro-illegal alien “sea of humanity” all over their front pages, freelance photographers, bloggers and radio interviewers captured a sea of open-borders militancy nationwide.

Uninformed political observers delude themselves into thinking that these sentiments are relegated to the fringe. But the core concepts of reconquista (the “re-conquest” of the Southwest by Mexico) have spread wide and deep.

LAPD Faces Lawsuit Over Immigration Policy

Posted by The Watchdog - May 3rd, 2006
LA Times

A group challenges the department’s rule that prohibits officers from asking individuals about their immigration status, saying it is illegal.

A nonprofit government watchdog group that lobbies for immigration reform filed a lawsuit Monday challenging the Los Angeles Police Department’s policy of generally prohibiting officers from asking about the immigration status of individuals and limiting cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

Judicial Watch, which is headquartered in Washington, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking to prevent the LAPD from enforcing Special Order 40, said Candice E. Jackson, an attorney for the group.

“It violates the state and federal law by prohibiting the maximum amount of cooperation between the Police Department and immigration authorities in enforcing immigration laws,” Jackson said.

Labor Site Backlash Felt at Polls In Herndon

Posted by The Watchdog - May 3rd, 2006
Washington Post

Herndon voters yesterday unseated the mayor and two Town Council members who supported a bitterly debated day-labor center for immigrant workers in a contest that emerged as a mini-referendum on the turbulent national issue of illegal immigration.

Residents replaced the incumbents with challengers who immediately called for significant changes at the center. Some want to bar public funds from being spent on the facility or restrict it to workers living in the country legally. Others want it moved to an industrial site away from the residential neighborhood where it is located.

The labor center forced the western Fairfax County town into the national spotlight last summer as the immigration debate grew deeply contentious. Even though fewer than 3,000 people voted yesterday, advocates on both sides of the issue looked at the Herndon election as a test of public sentiment. Outside groups such as the Minuteman Project, which opposes illegal immigration, intervened in the debate, and Judicial Watch, a conservative legal group, is suing the town over the establishment of the center.

Twenty-six percent of the town’s 10,203 registered voters came to the polls, up from 20 percent when O’Reilly was elected two years ago, according to Fairfax County figures.

Illegal Marchers Throw Rocks At Police

OC Register

SANTA ANA, CA - Police asked other law enforcement agencies for help this afternoon after a group of 1,500 protesters jammed traffic on Bristol Street near 1st Street and Edinger Avenue and some started to hurls rocks, plastic bottles and marbles at officers.

?It?s starting to take a turn for the worse,? Santa Ana police Sgt. Lorenzo Carrillo said.

Sixteen officers at the scene were not injured by the thrown objects.

Assistance was requested about 6 p.m. As soon as more officers are on the scene, people who don?t leave the area will be arrested, Carrillo said.

Texas Drinking Rule

Posted by The Watchdog - May 1st, 2006

Okay people, this is just a joke. I don’t want any posts about how we need to shoot and kill illegal aliens.

A Mexican drinks his beer and suddenly throws his glass in the air, pulls out his pistol and shoots the glass to pieces. He says, “In Mexico our glasses are so cheap we don’t need to drink from the same glass twice.”

An Iraqi, obviously impressed by this, drinks his beer, throws his glass into the air, pulls out his AK-47 and shoots the glass to pieces. He says, “In Iraq we have so much sand to make glasses that we don’t need to drink out of the same glass twice either.”

The Texas boy, cool as a cucumber, picks up his beer and drinks it, throws his glass into the air, pulls out his gun and shoots the Mexican and the Iraqi, and catches his glass. He says, “In America we have so many illegal Mexicans and Arabs that we don’t have to drink with the same
ones twice.”

Few Restaurants Close

Posted by The Watchdog - May 1st, 2006

If I wasn’t looking, I probably wouldn’t have noticed, but I saw that one of the two car washes near my house was closed and so were two nearby Mexican restaraunts. One of the restaraunts is a complete shithole and I would never eat there anyway. Other than that it was just another day.

Immigrant-owned taco stands and bakeries from California to New Jersey largely were shut down on Monday, but most U.S. restaurants reported no shortage of busboys and cooks despite a national boycott and major protests by pro-immigration activists.

In downtown Los Angeles, employees at several popular lunch spots said everyone had shown up to work. Eateries at the Westfield Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, New Jersey also reported no lack of workers and a spokeswoman for Starbucks Corp. said the chain had not had to close or pare back the hours of any of its coffee shops.

Hugo Chavez and The Communist May Day

Posted by The Watchdog - May 1st, 2006
The American Thinker

Hugo Chavez of Venezuela does not lack for ambition. Sitting atop billions of petrodollars, closely allied with Fidel Castro (whose life span soon is nearing its natural end), Chavez is already sticking his nose in the business of other Western Hemisphere nations, supporting leftist candidates, Marxist rebels, aimed at toppling American imperialism, and buying far more arms than would be necessary to defend his borders.

There is every reason to suspect that Hugo Chavez may even be playing a planning and supporting role in today?s (May 1st ? the Communist holiday) ?Day Without an Immigrant? demonstrations.

Back in January, Hugo Chavez hosted the 6th World Social Forum, a gigantic collection of left wing activists from all over the world. During this time, a lot of talk and a lot of planning seems to have taken place, some of it directly relevant to today?s demonstrations.

CA Sheriff Wants Immigration Enforcement

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Anderson said this week he is considering instructing his deputies, in certain cases, to arrest undocumented immigrants for their citizenship status, which immediately drew the ire of other candidates in the contentious race for sheriff.

?I want local law enforcement to have the ability to arrest and detain illegal aliens that pose a threat because of issues of terrorism,? Anderson said in an interview Friday. ?This is something we’re looking into.?

CA Health System Struggles

Posted by The Watchdog - May 1st, 2006
LA Times

When Los Angeles County’s public health system teetered on the edge of collapse in the mid-1990s, local leaders found their white knight in the nation’s capital.

But a decade after the federal government came to the rescue, Washington has become a less hospitable place for America’s most populous county, as supervisors and their aides were reminded during a lobbying trip last week.

Though the county is still struggling to keep poor mothers off welfare, pay for jailing illegal immigrants and provide healthcare to hundreds of thousands of uninsured people, federal dollars are harder to come by.

Reconquista’s Giddy With Excitement

Posted by The Watchdog - May 1st, 2006
SignOnSanDiego

In the United States, some anti-immigration activists see migrants as a threat to American land and culture, part of a Spanish-speaking invasion that will reclaim the American Southwest.

Their concern is fed by occasional Mexican references to the booming immigrant population as a ?reconquista,? or re-conquest, and by the Mexican government’s efforts to reinforce the migrants’ ties to their homeland.

When hundreds of thousands of mainly Latino marchers turned out for a pro-immigrant demonstration Los Angeles in March, Mexican television reporter Alberto Tinoco sounded almost giddy.

?With all due respect to Uncle Sam, this shows that Los Angeles has never stopped being ours,? Tinoco said on the Televisa network’s nightly newscast.

Prominent Mexican writers Elena Poniatowska and Carlos Fuentes have spoken sometimes of a ?reconquista.? Poniatowska says Mexicans are recovering their lost lands ?through migratory tactics.?

?Re-conquest,? too, may be misleading. Before the war, most people in the Mexican territory north of the current border, from California to Texas, were Indians. They spoke little Spanish and paid little allegiance to Mexico.

Spain began establishing missions in ?Alta California? shortly before the American Revolution, and the land became Mexico’s after its own independence from Spain in 1821. But only a few thousand Spaniards and Mexicans were living in the area when the United States took the 525,000 square miles under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo decades later, paying $18.25 million in cash and assumed debts ? the equivalent of about $434 million today.

Mexico’s Immigration Laws Are More Strict Than U.S.

Posted by The Watchdog - May 1st, 2006
El Paso Times

While Mexican citizens and lawmakers have been criticizing U.S. officials for proposed immigration legislation, Mexico’s immigration policy is very similar to the United States’ and in some aspects even tougher.

Just like in the United States, immigrants in Mexico can’t work without a permit, tourists must register upon entering the country and retirees living there must have permits.

But unlike in the United States, immigrants in Mexico can never hold public office and cannot own land. Becoming a naturalized Mexican citizen is almost unheard of.

‘If you think these critics are mad about U.S. immigration policy now, imagine how upset they would be if we adopted an approach … namely, the way Mexico treats illegal aliens,’ wrote Frank Gaffney Jr., president and CEO of The Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C., in a Washington Times column.

Mexico’s immigration policy states that immigrants in Mexico:

* are banned from public political discourse.
* are denied basic property rights.
* are denied equal employment rights.
* cannot be in public office.
