An Appeal From Numbers USA

illegal-aliens

Tell New Jersey Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Bob Menendez:
No Amnesty for Illegal Aliens!

President Obama no longer has to worry about re-election. Now, he says he’s free to pursue “comprehensive immigration reform.” But what he means is an amnesty that would flood the nation with millions of new job-seekers. Stop this illegal-alien amnesty.

The talking heads in Washington are trying to sell the American people a falsehood. They say Obama’s win proves that Congress simply must cave in and pass an amnesty. Don’t believe it:

The toughest proponents of enforcing and improving immigration laws were nearly all re-elected. In fact, the House and Senate both have more tough enforcers now than before the election. And President Obama got nine million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008.

The danger, though, is that many panicky lawmakers may be stampeded into going along with an amnesty. They’ll ignore the fact that there are still eight million fewer full-time jobs than there were four years ago. And they’ll ignore the weak economic growth will barely make a dent in the unemployment rate in the coming years.

They may even try to do it during the lame-duck session of Congress. Already, Republican Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are signaling that they are willing to work on a deal. You need to tell them, “No illegal-alien amnesty!”

Don’t let Congress ignore the plight of the American worker. We can win this battle. We beat back the big illegal-alien amnesty in 2007, when no one believed we could. And so many of the senators who pushed for amnesty are gone. But we have to stop the stampede.

Send Senators Frank Lautenberg and Bob Menendez this urgent fax, letting them know that you won’t believe any lame excuses for rewarding illegal aliens with American jobs.

Dear Senators Frank Lautenberg and Bob Menendez,

Recent comments made by Congressional Leaders and reports from the press worry me greatly. It seems that the recent election has energized Congress’ willingness to pass a mass amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens. There should be no rush to take our nation down a path with such irrevocable consequences.

First, there are 20 million Americans who can’t find a full-time job, and allowing 12 million illegal aliens to join the legal work force would only make things worse. Congress needs to take actions that put unemployed Americans back to work, not take actions that make things even more difficult.

Second, Congress passed an amnesty in 1986 and all it did was create more illegal immigration. Illegal immigration can’t be solved by simply passing amnesties. Instead, Congress needs to put in place sensible legislation that would end illegal immigration once and for all by ending the magnets that encourage people to come to the U.S. illegally.

Don’t let the narrow results from one election cause any rash decisions. If the sudden interest in immigration reform is about bettering the lives of legal immigrants or making the United States a stronger nation, amnesty should not be the answer.

Sincerely,
(Your Name Will Appear Here).

    That’s right, folks, you heard it here first: millions! You could replace the phrase “illegal aliens” with “spacemen”. Might as well toss and turn each night worrying about asteroids smashing into the earth! “Millions of new job-seekers”. What a bunch of baloney. Who wrote this article anyway, Carl Segan? It’s 2012 for chrissake, why don’t you get off the stupid “illegals are coming to take our jobs” and get some real skills instead of aspiring to work in a glue factory.

  2. Dave Berman says:

    …should have known it was Rob Eichmann that posted this piece. Why is it that we’ve got to go back to the home page to find out who the OP is? Why is Rob Eichmann always barking about illegal aliens? This isn’t Arizona of New Mexico; it’s New Jersey. I didn’t realize illegal aliens were such a big problem in out state. If you ask me we should send the Arizona and New Mexico packing as well when you consider they are just welfare states. You heard me right, New Jersey gets only 60 cents for every federal tax dollar in contributes while Arizona gets something like a buck fifty. It ain’t illegal immigrants you’ve got to worry about, it’s good ol’ boy USA schmucks in the MidWest but Eichmann would never write about that!

    @Dave Berman:

    Are you really that stupid? This is an appeal from the group “Numbers USA.”

    I guess you don’t get out much if you don’t think that illegal aliens are a problem in New Jersey.

  4. @ Dave Berman:

    New Jersey doesn’t have a problem with illegal aliens? What plant are you living on? Here is a list of those cities in New Jersey that are sanctuary cities.

    New Jersey

    •Camden, NJ (Added in 2007; latest source: Camden, Immigrant Haven?, By Lauren Feeney, City Paper, 7-16-08)
    •Fort Lee, NJ
    •Hightstown, NJ (Added 5-30-07)
    •Jersey City, NJ
    •Newark, NJ (Added 6-3-07)
    •North Bergen, NJ
    •Trenton, NJ
    •Union City, NJ
    •West New York, NJ

    Each one of these cities is costing the taxpayers of New Jersey since those illegals suck services from the state like a calf on his or her mother’s tit.

    Tell Dave “shit-bag” Berman to call the mothers of these murdered Newark students and ask them if there is a problem:

    “In 2007, a gang of MS-13-tied illegal aliens ambushed a group of young college students in Newark and murdered them execution-style in a schoolyard.

    The four students were hanging out behind Mount Vernon School on Aug. 4, 2007, when they were confronted by their attackers with a handgun and a machete. Three of the victims — Terrance Aeriel, 18, Dashon Harvey, 20, and Iofemi Hightower, 20 — were killed when they were lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head. Terrance’s sister, Natasha Aeriel, survived after being shot in the face and left for dead.

    All of the victims were robbed, and Aeriel and the group’s other female, Iofemi Hightower, were sexually molested and cut with machetes and knives, according to a lawsuit recently filed against the city school system and the alleged killers.”

    “They cut my niece’s face off,” said John McClain, who is Hightower’s great-uncle, and the chaplain of the Newark Police Department. “They cut her from cheek to cheek. They left her head hanging.”

  6. truther says:

    Oh that’s right, I almost forgot, liberal ass-bandits like Berman don’t consider people from Newark people. They don’t count. I get it.

  7. Dave Berman says:

    “Sanctuary cities”??? By definition a “sanctuary city” is a municipality that does not spend its resources combating illegal immigration. And why, pray tell, aren’t these New Jersey cities enforcing immigration laws?

    No really, I’m not baiting you. I actually would like to hear your thoughts about why these cities are not spending their limited resources tracking down illegal immigrants. What with all the crime and violence in these places you’d imagine illegal immigration would be number one on their list. Isn’t that right???

    Well? Isn’t that right? Where do you think illegal immigration belongs in a scale of law enforcement? How would you appropriate funds if you were in charge of the budget?

  8. truther says:

    why these cities are not spending their limited resources tracking down illegal immigrants.

    They do after the victims have been buried.

    Notice how the ass-bandit wants to ignore the victims?

  9. @Dave Berman

    From Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC:

    Despite a 1996 federal law [the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act ( IIRIRA )] that requires local governments to cooperate with Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), many large urban cities (and some small) have adopted so-called “sanctuary” policies. Generally, sanctuary policies instruct city employees not to notify the federal government of the presence of illegal aliens living in their communities. The policies also end the distinction between legal resident aliens and illegal aliens–so illegal aliens often benefit from taxpayer funded government services and programs too.

    A formal sanctuary policy is a written policy that may have been passed by a local government body in the form of a resolution, ordinance, or administrative action–general or special orders, or departmental policies. Formal sanctuary cities are the easiest to identify because their sanctuary policies are in writing, often get the attention of the media, and subject to public records requests by citizens and the press.

    By law local government has to cooperate with the Federal Government when it comes to the issue of illegal aliens. By removing illegal aliens who collect food stamps, medicaid care, free education and other social benefits, costing tens of thousands of dollars, that money could be used to pay for police, infrastructure repair and decreased tax rates.

    This is a nonissue for the overwhelming majority of mainstream Republicans, and everybody else in the American electorate. Obsessing about immigration will surely keep the GOP a minority party for eternity, especially with demographic changes that will shrink the GOP “base” even further.

    Fortunately, the GOP has leaders like Chris Christie in Trenton, and John Boehner in Washington, who don’t waste their time and resources pandering to a tiny minority of unreconstructed Tea Party misfits who still haven’t gotten over Obama’s re-election. While the whiners and bellyachers are crying in their kool-aid about alien invaders, Chris Christie and John Boehner are doing what Republicans are supposed to do, which is lower taxes, cut spending, balance the budget and reduce the size and scope of government.

  11. truther says:

    Chris Christie and John Boehner are doing what Republicans are supposed to do, which is lower taxes, cut spending, balance the budget and reduce the size and scope of government.

    (1) When did Chris Christie lower property taxes?

    (2) Has state spending gone down or up under Chris Christie?

    (3) Has New Jersey’s budget been balanced without the use of gimicks?

    (4) How has Chris Christie reduced the size and scope of government?

    I’d ask the same of Boner but we all know that taxes have gone up, spending has gone up, budgets have gone unbalanced, and government has grown since he’s been in office and more so since he’s been the “leader”.

    What is ass-bandit Donny up to? Is he paid by Christie to spew this out from the Cayman Islands, because he’s not talking about the United States.

    Here is a news flash for the ass-bandits:

    Illegal immigrants use up a lot of services and drive up property taxes and taxes in general. Many (some studies claim most) work in the gray economy, so they don’t pay taxes. How does that reduce spending, lower taxes, balance budgets, or reduce the size and scope of government?

  12. julie says:

    It doesn’t look like Donny cares about the young women who were raped and sexually molested by the gang of thugs here illegally. No surprise there. Donny had an entire goon squad of taxpayer paid for procurers and lookouts when the GOP ran the legislature.

    Come on and tell us how the vast majority of Republicans don’t care about the women you molested. A little grope is no biggy, right Donny?

  13. Dave Berman says:

    @Richard Zuendt:
    I don’t understand how you would think a selection from a political committee’s statement alleging “sanctuary” policies addresses the question of where illegal immigration lay among law enforcement priorities. Nobody is denying that there are laws on the books already prohibiting undocumented visitors (hence the term “illegal” immigrants) but when the committee suggests there are written policies the language breaks down into incoherent nonsense. In fact the second paragraph of the selection you cited starts with what doesn’t even appear to be a complete sentence:

    “A formal sanctuary policy is a written policy that may have been passed by a local government body in the form of a resolution, ordinance, or administrative action–general or special orders, or departmental policies.”

    If I may paraphrase I believe this means that a formal policy is a written policy. Furthermore, this policy -which may (or may not) have been passed by a local government - may also be called a resolution, an ordinance, an administrative action, an order, or a “departmental” policy.

    Nobody is splitting hairs over the definition of policy. Suffice to say a formal policy is a written policy. The selection you cited also goes on to say that municipalities can be categorized as “sanctuary cities” by the identity of these formal policies.

    With all due respect then why haven’t you included a selection of a written policy that “instruct[s] city employees not to notify the federal government of the presence of illegal aliens living in their communities”? Any such selection would lend credibility to the otherwise preposterous position that such policies exists; let alone your contention that the cost of tracking down illegal immigrants would somehow produce enough revenues to pay for itself.

    My original contention, however, was not about the prevalence of illegal immigrants in our communities; I was bemoaning the ridiculous alarm that “amnesty that would flood the nation with millions of new job-seekers”. If this was really the case wouldn’t you want to address the hiring processes of organizations that employ these criminals?

  14. truther says:

    More ass-banditry. Chew on this.

    “The CRS study uses data subpoenaed from the federal government by House Committee on the Judiciary. The data details 159,286 cases where legal and illegal immigrants were arrested, identified via FBI databases and then let free, said the report.

    Over a 33-month period, from October 2008 and July 2011, roughly one-sixth of those let go were later arrested for crimes.

    The data shows that 26,412 of the 159,286 released legal and illegal immigrants were arrested later for 57,763 crimes, said the CRS.”

  15. Dave Berman says:

    I know I am going to regret addressing a man that feigns sympathy for the victims of violent crime in order to make an argument but here goes:

    You have cited an article (without any reference to a source mind you) that speaks of 159286 immigrants (both legal & illegal, no percentage offered) that were arrested (arrested for what?). Subsequently over a period just short of three years 26412 (or 16%) of these people were arrested again.

    Wow, that’s really saying something! I wonder how many natural born citizens get arrested more than once! I bet the percentage is not nearly as high as those among immigrants! That may or may not be the case but it doesn’t matter anyway as you seem to labor under the mistaken impression that if you get rid of immigrants crime will somehow go away.

    I’m not sure if it is because of stubbornness or a short-coming on your end, truther, but you clearly don’t get the point. Law enforcement officials are faced with the daunting task of protecting the public from crime in every shape and form. What evidence do you have that most crime is committed by illegal immigrants? In other words, what makes illegal immigration such a hot button issue deserving of the limited resources afforded our law enforcement agencies?

    We are all saddened by the tragic savagery that transpired at the Mount Vernon School in 2007. But there is no statistical evidence that most violent crimes are committed by aliens. In fact, the House Judiciary Committee reported that upwards of 36,000 illegal aliens were cut loose by federal law enforcement between 2006 and 2011. A number of these illegal immigrants went on to commit 19 murders and 142 sex crimes [http://www.theblaze.com/stories/report-illegal-aliens-released-by-federal-govt-committed-19-murders-142-sex-crimes/ ]. Compare those numbers to the volume of crimes committed by everyday US citizens and let me ask you once again:

    Where do you think illegal immigration belongs in a scale of law enforcement? How would you appropriate funds if you were in charge of the budget?

    You have to pick your battles in this world, truther. Perhaps you should pack it up and move to Holland where you can spend the rest of your days chasing windmills.

  16. truther says:

    Howdy ass-bandit Berman, your butt boy Menendez got caught. Maybe you should back up and move to Holland. You will find lots of ass there and dope too.

    Report: Menendez intern arrested
    By Politicker Staff | December 12th, 2012 - 2:31pm

    U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez reportedly employed an illegal immigrant who was also a registered sex offender in his Senate office as an unpaid intern, according to a published report.

    The Associated Press is reporting that the Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after Election Day, according to the report.

    Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, an 18-year-old immigrant from Peru, was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents on Dec. 6. The intern was reportedly living in New Jersey on a now-expired visitor visa from Peru. He is in federal custody and faces deportation.

    According to the report, the intern was criminally charged in 2010 and was subsequently required to register as a sex offender. The charge against him was not reported since Sanchez was prosecuted as a juvenile.

    Menendez, a Democrat, was recently reelected to the Senate following a race against Republican state Sen. Joe Kyrillos.
