Pelosi: ?Hate Radio? Hijacked Political Discourse With ?Xenophobic, Anti-Immigrant? Rhetoric

These fascist liberals and globalists in Washington are mad as hell that the American people dared to challenge them. They know they would’ve gotten away with it if the American public was uninformed and in the dark. For the most part, the MSM on television stuck to the scripted talking points given to them by the creators of the shamnesty.

For example, they would state that the bill required background checks. Only if you listened to talk radio would you learn that the background checks would have to be completed within 24 hours. Impossible!

They are going to do everything they can to institute the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” to control the airwaves, silence their critics, and keep the public in the dark.

They are going to introduce a new “Fairness Doctrine” soon, and I’m certain they will seek to control our communication on the Internet with it.

Mexican President Calls Shamnesty Failure “Grave Mistake”

Mexican president says U.S. Senate made ‘grave mistake’ killing migration bill
Times Record News
June 29, 2007

MEXICO CITY (AP) ? President Felipe Calderon said Thursday the U.S. Senate made a “grave error” by killing legislation that would have led to the legalization of millions of unlawful immigrants, most of them from Mexico.

Calderon said the Senate’s failure to pass the bill will close the door to legal immigration, permit continued illegal immigration and human rights violations, and decrease security on both sides of the border.

He added that the bill would have been a “sensible, rational, legal solution to the immigration problem,” and that the Senate’s decision will negatively affect the competitiveness of both the United States and Mexico.

“It worsens the possibility of progress and prosperity not just for the immigrants, but also for the citizens of the United States,” he told a news conference held with visiting Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.

“The North American economy could not prosper and advance without the labor of Mexican and Central American immigrants.”

Calderon has pushed hard for immigration reform while harshly criticizing a 700-foot (200-meter) border-security fence approved by Congress and President George W. Bush.

Salvadoran President Tony Saca also lamented the Senate’s decision to kill the immigration measure, saying, “What a shame. What a shame.”

Gainesville, Ga Natives Feeling Encroached Upon

“Max Crawford, 54, a plant production manager, estimates that 90 percent of the workers he supervises are Latino immigrants. Crawford, who asked that his company not be named because he is not authorized to speak for it, said he admires how hard Latinos work. But he is also unsettled by many of their customs, such as a tendency to throw toilet paper in the trash rather than in the toilet — a common practice in areas of Latin America where commodes do not flush with sufficient force to handle paper.”


Billy Ray Smith and his wife, Uraina, of Gainesville, Ga., said they moved out of their subdivision after it was “taken over” by Mexicans.

Small-Town Resistance Helped to Seal Defeat
Washington Post
June 29, 2007

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Stephanie Usrey strode up to her local Wal-Mart store the other morning with the steely look of a boxer about to step into the ring.

A stay-at-home mother of two, Usrey has dreaded shopping at this particular branch ever since a Friday afternoon about five years ago, when she said she suddenly noticed she was the only non-Latino customer.

“That was the first time I looked around and said, ‘Man, I didn’t realize how many Mexicans there were here,’ ” Usrey, 39, recalled. “And they don’t seem to feel any discomfort when they’re, like, six inches from your face and talking to each other in their language, either. I just felt very encroached upon. . . . It was like an instant feeling of ‘I’m in the minority, and if we don’t get control over this, pretty soon all of America will be outnumbered.’ ”

That sense of alarm, echoed in communities across the nation, helped seal defeat for the Senate immigration bill Thursday. Fueled by talk-radio hosts and Web sites, Usrey and tens of thousands of other first-time activists bombarded their senators with phone calls and e-mails decrying the bill as an unacceptable amnesty for the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal immigrants.

Nowhere were the bill’s opponents more influential than here in Georgia, whose two Republican senators, Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss, originally helped craft the legislation. Two days after its unveiling in May, Chambliss was booed at his state’s Republican convention. Isakson’s office received more than 21,000 calls from opponents of the bill, compared with 6,000 from supporters.

Thursday, both Georgia senators voted to kill the bill they once supported.

Analysts say the unprecedented passion over immigration is largely the result of the seismic shift in settlement patterns since the mid-1990s — when the expanding economy prompted a surge of immigrants to bypass longtime gateway states such as California, New York and Texas, in favor of suburban and rural regions of the South and Midwest. Within a decade, the foreign-born population of 25 states doubled. In six other states with almost no prior experience of Latino immigration, including Georgia, the Latino population more than tripled.

“I think this new pattern of immigration is what’s really pushing the politics of this,” said William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution. “Before, people outside the seven gateway states didn’t care much one way or the other about immigration. Now, you suddenly have all these people across Middle America seeing immigrants in their neighborhoods.”

Gainesville, an area of about 102,000 set along a lake in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is solid Bush territory. Even now, many locals speak of the president’s support of the Senate bill the way one would of a beloved son who has momentarily strayed but is sure to come to his senses.

This is still a place where men take their sons deer hunting and moms call out to one another in the supermarket in cheerful Southern drawls. And although the highways leading out of the city have been colonized by the usual sprawl of Home Depot, PetSmart and OfficeMax big-box stores, downtown Gainesville retains a tranquil, small-town feel. Colonnaded white mansions line one of the major avenues. Clothing boutiques and cafes ring a landscaped central square with a monument dedicated to “Our Confederate Soldiers.”

A few feet away, in almost as prominent a spot, stands a statue of a rooster — a testament to local pride in the chicken processing plants that have given the region its identity as “poultry capital of the world” since the 1950s.

But those poultry plants are arguably most responsible for the wave of immigration transforming Gainesville. For years the plants, which include Mar-Jac, Pilgrim’s Pride and Tysons, among many others, employed mostly African Americans to do the grueling work at the heart of poultry processing. Then, in the early 1980s, a growth of other industries opened up less-taxing jobs……

DING DONG SHAMNESTY IS DEAD!!! 46 to 53


Sen. Jim DeMint has it right

?When the U.S. Senate brought the Amnesty bill back up this week, they declared war on the American people. This act created a crisis of confidence in their government. Thankfully, the American people won today,? said Senator DeMint. ?This is remarkable because it shows that Americans are engaged and they care deeply about their country. They care enough for their country to get mad and to fight for it, and that?s the most important thing of all. Americans made phone calls and sent letters, and convinced the Senate to stop this bill.?

?The Senate rejected this bill and the heavy-handed tactics used to ram it through. Americans do not want more of the same ? amnesty and broken promises on the border. Americans want legislation to be written in public ? not in secret ? and they want Congress to engage in an open and fair debate.?

dimint

?There is a better way forward without this bill. The President has said that the border security measures can be implemented over the next 18 months, and they can be done under current law. Now the Administration needs to prove it and stop holding border security hostage for amnesty.?

?Once we have secured the border and restored trust with the American people, we can begin to take additional steps.?

Michelle Malkin: Thanks to the stalwart, true leaders in the Senate ? especially Sens. Sessions, DeMint, Vitter, Inhofe, Cornyn, and their staffs. Thanks to the House GOP members who made their opposition known. Thanks to the Loud Folks on the right side of the dial. Thanks to the Loud Folks at The Corner, RedState, Human Events, Townhall, N.Z. Bear, and all the enforcement-first bloggers out there who weighed in. Thanks to the analysts at the Heritage Foundation, the enforcement/assimilation proponents at The Manhattan Institute, George Borjas, Kris Kobach, Eagle Forum, 9/11 Families, FAIR and Numbers USA. Thanks to the immigration enforcement activists who?ve been at this for years and decades before this one battle began. Most importantly, thanks to all the ordinary ?Loud Folks? who called, phoned, e-mailed, and blogged their opposition.

The bill is dead. The work of immigration enforcement and border security continues.

Smuggled Illegals Wrapped Around Engine Compartment

3 Illegal Immigrants Hide In Truck Engine
Woman Treated For Burns
KPHO Phoenix
June 28, 2007

SAN DIEGO — A 44-year old Mexican man was arrested Tuesday at the Otay Mesa passenger port of entry in San Diego, Calif., after Border Patrol inspectors said they discovered three Mexican citizens hidden inside the engine compartment of his Ford pickup truck entering the U.S. from Mexico, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers said.

A woman suffered burns to her right arm, abdominal area, and left leg during the trip, CBP officers said.

After a CBP officer tried treating her, the woman was transported by paramedics to a local medical facility.

Officers said the driver, a Tijuana resident, provided inconsistent answers to their questions, and was asked to pull into a secondary lot for further inspection.

Once there, a narcotics detector dog alerted officers to the hood of the vehicle.

The hood was wired shut, so a crowbar was used to pry it open, officers said.

Once opened, officers said they discovered two women and one man concealed in the engine compartment.

The driver was charged with alien smuggling and transported to the Metropolitan Correctional Center. The vehicle was seized by CBP.

Largest Invader Smuggling Bust in AZ State History

KTAR

That’s what the Phoenix Police Department is calling a joint investigation with the Attorney General’s office, DPS, ICE and Border Patrol that began 8 months ago.

It ended today with the serving of 8 search warrants and the arrests of 13 suspects.

More than 260 illegals were detained and turned over to ICE.

The ringleader is identified as Roman Robaina of Florida. He and his girlfriend were arrested in Miami yesterday.

The organization is suspected of smuggling about 300 illegal aliens a week into the U.S. from Naco and Nogales, Mexico.

At 15,000 people a year, the human smuggling ring netted about $30 million annually.

FAIR: “Defeat a tribute to vibrancy of our democracy”

“The decision by the Senate not to move forward with a bill that would grant amnesty to countless millions of illegal aliens and undermine American workers with still more foreign guest workers is a tribute to vibrancy of our democracy,” said Dan Stein, president of FAIR. “This was nothing short of a popular revolt against an unresponsive government in Washington that is not only out of touch with the concerns of the people they represent, but openly disdainful of them.” Dan Stein: Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)

FAIR: Defeat of Immigration Bill is a Defeat for Heavy-Handed Legislative Tactics
SW Nebraska News
June 28, 2007

Today’s defeat 46-53 of a motion to invoke cloture and end debate on the Bush-Senate immigration bill reflects the unprecedented public rejection of the idea of granting amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens, and the unprecedented legislative tactics employed to try to force this unpopular bill through Senate. Calling the defeat of cloture a tremendous victory for law- abiding, hard-working Americans and a rebuke of the White House’s and the Senate leadership’s arrogant effort to impose their will on the American public, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) congratulated all of those who were involved in derailing a singularly irresponsible piece of legislation.

“The decision by the Senate not to move forward with a bill that would grant amnesty to countless millions of illegal aliens and undermine American workers with still more foreign guest workers is a tribute to vibrancy of our democracy,” said Dan Stein, president of FAIR. “This was nothing short of a popular revolt against an unresponsive government in Washington that is not only out of touch with the concerns of the people they represent, but openly disdainful of them.

“The defeat of the cloture motion occurred because the American public responded to the effort to ram through an illegal alien amnesty and guest worker program with an unrelenting barrage of phone calls, email and protests,” noted Stein. “They were aided in this effort by talk radio, cable news personalities, and Internet bloggers who refused to let the Bush Administration and its allies in Congress sell out the interests of the American people under the cover of secrecy.”

FAIR also expressed its appreciation to a bipartisan coalition of senators who refused to knuckle under to heavy-handed pressure and legislative tactics employed by the Senate leadership. For many of those senators, opposition to a massive amnesty and guest worker program was a matter of deeply held principle. Many more simply rejected efforts to railroad the bill through the Senate — negotiating the bill behind closed doors, hand-picking amendments that could be offered, and forcing members to vote on language they were not given the opportunity to read carefully.

“What we have seen unfold in the United States Senate was not only an attempt to run roughshod over the concerns and interests of the American public, but a blatant attempt on the part of supporters of the bill to hijack the legislative process,” said Stein. “The American public simply said no to amnesty, no to a blank check for businesses seeking foreign labor, and no an unaccountable ruling class in Washington.

“It is time now for the president and Congress to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws,” continued Stein. “The American people want action, not more promises. Over the past few weeks they have made it very clear that they do not believe that the price of enforcing our immigration laws must be to first reward the people who break our laws.”

Smuggler Throws Rocks At Border Agent Rescuing Drowning Migrant

Migrant perishes in canal, Border Patrol agent injured

El Paso Times

A Border Patrol agent trying to rescue a drowning migrant was wounded by the migrant’s smuggler and shot back at his attacker this afternoon by the American Canal west of Fonseca Drive, Border Patrol officials said.

Border Patrol, El Paso police and FBI officials were investigating the case. Preliminary information released by the Border Patrol indicate that the agent spotted a group of undocumented immigrants crossing into the United States when one migrant went into the water and was swept by currents.

Officials said the suspected smuggler, who was on the U.S. side of the canal started hurling rocks, hitting the agent on the back of the head, cutting a three-inch-long gash. The agent was later taken to the hospital and his condition is not known.

After being hit, the agent shot at the smuggler and missed and the smuggler ran back to Mexico, possibly with another migrant, officials said.

Officials have located the drowned migrant and were pulling his body out of the water this afternoon.

Illegal Kills Married Couple On Motorcycle. DUI One Week Earlier.


Raymundo Rojas Garcia caused Sunday’s accident that killed Wayne and Michelle Hughes, who were riding a motorcycle. He fled the scene because he was an illegal immigrant facing almost certain deportation once he was captured. One week earlier he was arrested for a DUI and let go after paying fines.

Illegal immigrant fled fatal wreck for fear of deportation, police say
Clarion Ledger
June 28, 2007

GULFPORT ? The man police say is responsible for a traffic accident that killed a Saucier couple allegedly fled the scene because he is an illegal immigrant who feared being deported.

Police say Raymundo Rojas Garcia caused Sunday’s accident that killed Wayne and Michelle Hughes, who were riding a motorcycle. He fled the scene because he was an illegal immigrant facing almost certain deportation once he was captured, authorities said.

Garcia was attempting to make a left turn in front of northbound traffic on U.S. 49 when he pulled in front of Wayne Hughes’ northbound Suzuki motorcycle, a witness said. Hughes tried to get out of the way but it was too late.

The couple’s son, who had joined his parents for dinner at a restaurant that night, was in a vehicle behind them and saw the deadly accident.

After the collision, a witness said, Garcia took off running with his wife and 1-year-old son, only to be captured a block and a half away.

He was charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident, driving without a license, driving without insurance, driving with an expired tag and failure to yield. His total bond was set at $51,351.

It is not Garcia’s first run-in with the law. Garcia, 27, was charged June 17 by Gulfport police with misdemeanor drunk driving and other traffic violations. He was detained overnight and later fined.

Gulfport Deputy Chief Alfred Sexton said Monday that a hold has been placed on Garcia pending confirmation of his immigration status.

However, Sexton said Garcia admitted to police he was an illegal immigrant. Sexton said Garcia likely would face criminal charges here before deportation.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said autopsy results Monday showed Wayne Hughes died of injuries to the head, chest and extremities; Michelle Hughes was thrown from the bike and died of head and neck injuries.

Illegal Truckers Are Given A Licence To Kill


In recent years, 32 states have reported
cases of commercial license fraud.

License To Kill
Thousands of truckers are on the road illegally. And your safety is at stake.

Commercial License Fraud

The Armstrong family never knew what hit them. Edward was behind the wheel of their car with his wife, Melissa, next to him and ten-year-old daughter and six-year-old son in the backseat. Traffic was choked to a near standstill on the stretch of Interstate 81 in Tennessee. But one driver apparently didn’t notice the approaching snarl.
Nasko Nazov, an illegal immigrant from Macedonia, didn’t hit the brakes in time and his tractor-trailer plowed into two idling vehicles, one of them the Armstrongs’ car. No one in the family survived the horrible crash.

Adding to the senselessness of the tragedy, officials soon learned that Nazov had been driving his truck with a bogus commercial driver’s license (CDL). The suburban Chicago resident had obtained false documents claiming he was a resident of Wisconsin (where he took his driver’s test) and had gotten help from a translator on the answers to a written exam. In 2006, Nazov was sentenced to four years in prison.

In recent years, 32 states have reported cases of commercial license fraud, with busts ranging everywhere from Florida to Ohio to Colorado. A 2006 report from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) identified about 15,000 “suspect” license holders in 27 states, over a third of whom ultimately had their CDLs taken away or voluntarily gave them up.

In Macon, Georgia, according to an investigative report by the Chicago Tribune, one truck-driving school paid private “third party” testers to falsify the exams of 623 students. When Georgia officials uncovered the racket and had all those students retake the test, only 142 qualified.

According to safety advocates, there are probably tens of thousands of truckers on the road with sham licenses. It’s bad enough that we’re sharing the highways with these risky drivers. But there are huge homeland security concerns too. After all, some truckers who get phony licenses may wind up hauling deadly chemicals or other hazardous materials that could be used as terror weapons.

Industry representatives point out that the overwhelming majority of their drivers (and there are about 1.5 million on the road at any given time) are hard-working and responsible. “We have a very strong safety agenda,” says American Trucking Associations spokesman Clayton Boyce. Clearly, however, more trucking companies need to examine credentials for signs of fraud. Nasko Nazov’s Wisconsin address was the same one used by other Illinois residents applying for CDL certification.

It’s no mystery why licensing scams are an increasingly bigger problem. Since 1980, the number of interstate trucking firms has ballooned from 20,000 to 564,000, thanks largely to deregulation of the industry……

Senate Amnesty Bill Suffers Crushing Defeat

AMNESTY IS DEAD!

CNN

WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Bush’s immigration bill suffered a crushing defeat Thursday in the Senate, when members voted against advancing the controversial legislation.

The tally was 46 to 53, 14 votes shy of the 60 needed to end debate.

The bill would have provided a path to citizenship for some of the 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and toughens border security.

Supporters and opponents of the controversial legislation said that it probably won’t be resurrected until after the 2008 elections.

Senators were voting against cutting off debate and referring the bill for a final vote.
