Thoughs from a crazy white boy

Pensados De Un Gabacho Loco
Neal Ross

Every Sunday evening at 9 p.m., Terry Anderson, runs a one hour radio show dedicated to illegal aliens. Terry lives in South Central Los Angeles, and is on the front lines when it comes to dealing with the effects illegal aliens are having upon the United States.

Terry opens his show every week with the statement, “Stupid people of America, if you ain’t mad, you ain’t paying attention!” You can listen to Terry’s show every Sunday if you go to The Terry Anderson Show.

Although I admire Terry and like his show, I, myself, would change the opening to “Stupid people of America, you ain’t paying attention!”

On June 28 the U.S. Senate failed to gain enough votes to pass it’s most recent attempt at immigration reform legislation. Some claim it was partisan politics that stopped this bill. Others say it was a coordinated effort by the public, who voiced their disapproval of the bill. It may also be true that our Senate is just plain dysfunctional and self destructed of their own volition. The fact of the matter is that the bill failed.

Yet we still have an estimated 10-20 million illegal aliens in this country, with more arriving every day as thousands more flood across our open and porous border. The Bush administration has promised to beef up border security and workforce enforcement of immigration laws. However they are playing scare tactics with us as they do so. Director of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, in an article in the Los Angeles Times made the following comment, “There will be some unhappy consequences for the economy out of doing this.”

I wonder who he was referring to when he made that comment, the American people, or the businesses that have gotten away with hiring cheap illegal alien workers for far too long?

Whatever the case may be, there are still many people in this country that support increased immigration and amnesty for those illegal aliens already here. I have to ask myself, just what in the world are these people thinking, or are they thinking at all?

Illegal immigration is a bane, a scourge and threatens to be the cause of the downfall of this country if it is not brought under control, and very quickly.

I am not going to go into specifics here, if you want facts read some of my earlier writings on this subject. However the Constitution of the United States says that Congress has the power to establish immigration policy, and it also states that our government is to protect our nation from invasion. It does not say by whom or how, just that they are to protect us from it. I would say that 20 million uninvited people would constitute an invasion.

Our local governments are just as inattentive, if not criminally negligent, in their efforts to deal with the problems caused by illegal aliens. Title 8, Section 1324 of the United States code makes it a crime to harbor an illegal alien.

Section 1324 also states, "All officers whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws shall have authority to make arrests for a violation of any provision of this section" This was also affirmed in US v Perez-Gonzalez 2002 Fed App 0360, 6th Circ.).

Next. Section 1644 of United States Code clearly states, "Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, no State or local government entity may be prohibited, or in any way restricted, from sending to or receiving from the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of an alien in the United States."

Finally Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act provides the legal authority for state and local enforcement to investigate, detain and arrest aliens on civil and criminal grounds. The local governments would enter an agreement with state government concerning the scope and intent of the program, yet the authority is there for them to do so. In return they receive full federal authority to enforce immigration law.

If this is the case, why then does Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago, Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco, Mayor Ron Dellums of Oakland, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York, Mayor Carlos Alvarez of Miami, Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick of Detroit, and dozens others declare their cities, sanctuary cities, where law enforcement is not allowed to question a persons immigration status.

These provisions make our cities safe havens for illegal aliens where they know that no matter what they do, they will not be asked about their immigration status. We are told that these policies are in place so that the illegal alien community will not be afraid to cooperate with local police in criminal investigations.

If you have been watching the news at all you will recall the recent execution style murder of 3 young African Americans in New Jersey. A Peruvian national, Jose Carranza, was charged with three counts of murder. Carranza had also previously been charged with the rape of a 5 year old girl then threatening the child and her parents. This is a direct consequence of our cities not determining the legal status of people who are questioned by law enforcement, as Mr. Carranza is in this country illegally.

You can go to Immigrations Human Costif you want to read more stories about how innocent people have been killed because our government refuses to enforce our immigration laws.

Crime is only one area where illegal aliens have an effect upon our daily lives. Illegal immigration also effects the wages of American workers, especially in the areas where illegal aliens are found to be a predominant part of the work force. This is due to the simple concept of supply and demand. When there is an abundance of laborers in a certain skill, the employer has the advantage of offering lower wages and less benefits than he normally would if there were a shortage of laborers for that skill set. This would be true whether or not illegal aliens were a factor. As long as employers have a large pool to draw their workers from, they do not have to offer above average wages to fill job openings.

The illegal aliens who get these jobs, that were normally held by native Americans, only exacerbate the problem because they are more than willing to work for wages that are considered low by native American standards.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center, Hispanic workers landed two out of every three new construction jobs in 2006. The vast majority of new construction jobs in 2006 were filled by foreign-born Latinos, many of them who had just recently arrived in the United States.

Pew Report

Those were jobs that just a few short years ago were held by American workers who were paid a decent wage. Due to immigration, both legal and illegal, this countries labor pool has been growing, allowing employers to offer lower and lower wages for what were once good paying jobs.

So the next time you wonder why you aren’t earning a decent wage, you can partially thank the 20 million workers who flood across our borders and take your job, or at least force you to accept a lower than normal wage or lose your job to someone who will.

There is also the fiscal cost of illegal aliens upon our country. While it is true that illegal aliens do not qualify for welfare, the children born to them, under a misrepresentation of the 14th amendment, upheld by an unfit Supreme Court, gives the parents of these illegal aliens access to a whole slew of other benefits that they are not entitled to. It is estimated that there are 360,000 of these ‘anchor babies’ born to illegal alien parents born annually in the United States.

According to the National Research Council, the net fiscal cost of immigration ranges from $11 billion to $22 billion annually. This comes primarily from expenditures in education, criminal justice, and medical care. California alone estimates that the fiscal cost of illegal aliens is $3 billion annually.

Our government claims they are going to finally begin to enforce our existing immigration laws. Let us hope that they do. Immigrations rights activists have already began proclaiming that it will lead to racial profiling and discrimination in the Latino community.

I would like to address that issue as well for just a moment. Our country is called the Great Melting Pot, where we are a diverse country made up of many cultures. Recently that diversity has been declining. The number of immigrants, both legal and illegal from Mexico and other Latin American countries has been on the rise.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, between 1990 and 2000 the diversity among immigrants has declined. Arizona, for example, has seen an increase in immigrants from Mexico from 55% to 67%, and Texas has seen the number go up from 59% to 65%. In fact, Mexico alone accounted for 43% of the growth in foreign-born population between 1990 and 2000. Immigrants from Spanish-speaking Latin America accounts for more than 60% of the growth of all foreign-born population in the 1990’s.

Center For Immigration Studies

While those numbers take into account both legal and illegal aliens, another study shows that undocumented Mexicans make up 5.9 million of an estimated 10.3 million, or 57% of the total. According to the same report, about 80-85 percent of the migration from Mexico has been due to illegal aliens.

This is not diversity, this is an invasion. While we still have a problem with illegal aliens from other countries, Mexico, and it’s Latin American Neighbors to the south has been the predominant supplier of that commodity in the United States

Recently, Senator Jeff Sessions, (R-AL) when talking about immigration reform, made the statement, “Now, we think it is not a thought-out policy at all. For example, we believe that in the next 20 years-our staff has worked on the numbers as hard as they can and we think it will add 53 million people into the legally permanent residents of the United States in the next 20 years. If you have 7 (hundred-thousand) to 900,000 illegals enter continually, as CBO projected, you’re talking about 70 million people in the next 20 years, approximately 25 percent of the current population of the United States of America. That is a huge decision for Congress and the Senate to make.

Sessions Comments

Many of these people are, in fact, coming to this country for a better life, as they cannot find decent jobs in their native lands. That does not take away from the fact that the sheer number of them, and the problems that come with them are not a serious problem for this country.

Then there are those who feel that this is their land and our nations immigration laws have no hold over them. People such as Jose Angel Gutierrez, a Professor at the University of Texas in Arlington, believes, “This is our homeland. We belong here. We cannot, we will not, and we must not be made illegal in our homeland. We are not immigrants…We are free to travel the length and breath of the Americas because we belong here. We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It is a matter of time. The explosion is in our population.”

With all these facts laid before you, it is a wonder why anyone who cares anything at all about this country would support illegal aliens and their cause. I question why anyone would vote for an elected representative, all the way from the local to the federal level, who refuses to take action to stop the flow of illegal aliens into this country, and deport those that are here. My only conclusion is that STUPID PEOPLE OF AMERICA, YOU AIN’T PAYING ATTENTION!
