Boehner Blows Amnesty PredictionEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – June 17, 2006
House Majority Leader John Boehner is making a career of making wild predictions and then eating his words, only days later. Townhall.com reported that within two days, Boehner “changed from sunny optimism about prospects for passing an immigration bill this summer to a bleak, negative outlook.”
Of course, Bush and Boehner do not dare use the word “amnesty,” but everyone knows that is what the bill is all about. Bush and Boehner want to reward aliens for flaunting the law.
Tuesday, Boehner predicted the Senate and House would resolve the “amnesty” bill by the Fourth of July. The very next day, Boehner declared that the bill was all but dead.
Less of a Free Ride for IllegalsEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – April 16, 2006
Illegal aliens have been marching and demanding their “rights.” But those who are not even legal citizens cannot have the rights of an American citizen.
The illegals wanted attention and they are getting it. Over 50 million Medicaid recipients will soon have to prove that they are actually American citizens and not illegal free-riders, according to the New York Times. Documentation should always be required to receive any American citizen benefit. When the gravy train for illegals ends, violating the law by sneaking into America my not be so tempting.
If illegal aliens received something other a free trip home, they might start crossing the boarder to get out of the United States. Instead of going home and telling everyone that everything is free in America, they could go home and tell that they got hard time and a fine!
Whatever G. W. Bush calls his proposed immigration programs, the illegals hear “amnesty,” and more flock on in.
There is concerned that some American citizens will be cut off from Medicare, due to the rule. But the rule is reasonable, and long overdue.
The Associated Press reported that some illegal alien have been fired for laying out of work to march! These people chose to break the law by illegally sneaking into the country. They chose a life of always having to sneak around and hide their true citizenship status. They were in no position to demand anything. Yet, they chose to lay out of work and march for more government freebies! The only question is why did these companies hire illegal aliens in the first place?
Illegals Flock to Iowa and North CarolinaEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – September 28, 2005
Illegal Aliens are pouring into the US in even greater numbers, according the Associated Press. It’s no mystery why. G. W. Bush is doing everything possible to increase illegal immigration.
Not only are more illegals coming in, but they are spreading out into states that are not already saturated with immigrants. North Carolina and Iowa were given as examples of states that are attracting the illegal traffic.
NC Cracking Down on Illegal AliensEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – April 16, 2005
Illegal immigrants once flocked to North Carolina to get drivers licenses, with no questions asked. NC is wising up, according to The Charlotte Observer, and is now looking for ways to impede the flood of illegals.
Some NC lawmakers had even sponsored a bill to load up illegal aliens with free college money. This money would have been supplied by the, often struggling, NC citizens.
Bill Gheen, president Americans for Legal Immigration, said "This bill takes away the educational futures for our children while rewarding illegal families and the parents (who) decided to break our laws."
As one might expect, the bill was not too popular with the people who would have to furnish the free money. A number of citizens explained to the lawmakers that if such a bill was passed, the legislators would never serve another term.
This was language the lawmakers could understand; no less than seven N.C. lawmakers withdrew support for the bill.
NC is now leaning toward no longer handing out driving licenses like popcorn and clamping down on the giveaway programs for illegal aliens.
Republican Sen. Hugh Webster introduced a bill to deny illegal immigrants public aid. He said "If you come to America not abiding by our laws, that is a criminal act."
Republican Sen. Phil Berger introduced a bill to tighten the NC drivers licenses requirements. He said "The state of North Carolina has been lax in that (security) obligation. There's a growing sense of frustration among our people about what's happening with our border security. ... The federal government has not done as good a job as it should be doing controlling our borders."
Republican Sen. Hugh Webster has some advice for those who hire illegal aliens. He said "I got some news for these employers. It's a federal crime to employ these illegals."
Taxpayers Tired of Supporting IllegalsEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – November 7, 2004
The Los Angeles Times reported the passage of an Arizona voter initiative that blocks some public services for illegal immigrants. Other states, including California, are following a similar trend of no longer showering lawbreakers with free services.
Proposition 200 passed with 56 percent of the vote.
3 Million Illegals This YearEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – September 14, 2004
A Time investigation projects the number illegal aliens coming to America this year will be three million. If an American tries to board a plane, he will get a security hassle. But 4,000 illegals will waltz across the border between Arizona and Mexico in a given day. Once they get here, they can load up on phony documents.
The influx of lawbreakers poses a problem, even if no terrorists are in the crowd. But it would be foolish to assume that no terrorists tag alone with the invading masses. It’s easy to get lost in a horde like that.
In less that one year, the Tucson Border Patrol stopped 9,051 people illegally crossing the border who had criminal records in the US! 378 had active warrants, including homicide.
Rancher George Morin said "All these people say they are coming for the amnesty program...have been told if they get 10 miles off the border, they are home free." (Thanks, G. W. Bush.)
The report rightly blamed both political parties for the growing problem.
Illegals Cost $10 Billion a YearEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – August 26, 2004
The Center for Immigration Studies and the Los Angeles Times reported that illegal immigrants cost US taxpayers $10 Billion a Year. If that’s not bad enough, G. W. Bush’s scheme to legalize undocumented workers would almost triple that amount!
Bush wants to legalize an estimated 8 million to 12 million migrants. Not all Republicans are eating out of Bush’s hand; many oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants.
The study’s author, Steven A. Camarota, said "The fundamental problem is that the modern American economy is based on skills, and that makes it very difficult to bring unskilled workers in and not sock taxpayers with a huge cost. The fiscal impact of a legalization program needs to be an important consideration."
Murder and Illegal ImmigrationEmployee Advocate – www.DukeEmployees.com – May 31, 2004
Illegal immigrants are crossing the Mexican border as never before, since G. W. Bush announced his amnesty proposal. Bush claims that it is not amnesty, but everyone knows better.
As the illegals pour in, so do the problems. The Baltimore Sun reported that three Mexican children were murdered. One was decapitated and the other two were partially beheaded. Baltimore police are investigating a theory that the murders were revenge over an unpaid debt for being smuggled across the border into the United States.
Two Mexican immigrants, ages 17 and 22, have been arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of possession of a deadly weapon. They were spotted casing the area before the children were killed. One of the men is a butcher at a Baltimore slaughterhouse.
