THE CRIME OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: CONTROLLING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

THE CRIME OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: CONTROLLING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

ARE LEGAL TERMS AND IMMIGRATION LAWS “OFFENSIVE” IN OBAMA’S TRANSFORMED AMRERICA?

IS HONORABLE JOURNALISM DEAD ON ATLANTA TV NEWS?

Atlanta’s WSB TV News report on “offensive” term: “Illegal alien.”

The below WSB TV News report (“Signs supporting bill offends Hispanic community“) focused on some signs promoting Georgia’s Senate Bill 6,which will end the practice of giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, ran Wednesday night, March 18, 2015 on the 11 o’clock news.

When you watch it, try to find any pro-American balance.

And try to forget that interviewing Angry Jerry Gonzalez who runs the anti-borders, business-funded GALEO Inc. and a foreign language speaking man who is apparently an illegal alien and job thief wouldn’t really qualify as “balance” in most professional newsrooms.

Also, try to remember that the term “illegal alien” is a legal and accurate way to describe a non-citizen who is present in the remains of the United States in violation of our immigration laws.

Try to remember that “illegal alien” is widely used to describe illegal aliens in federal law, Georgia law, by the IRS, in Presidential Executive Orders, and in deliberations in and and decisions by the United States Supreme Court – including by that wise Latina”, Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Don’t forget to be offended.

One more thing: This WSB TV reporter, Amy Napier Viteri’s former “journalism” gig was with the anti-borders Telemundo foreign language TV network in Washington DC. Her bio on WSB tells us she “grew up in a bilingual Ecuadorian-American household, speaks fluent Spanish and looks forward to helping tell the stories of Spanish speakers here in Georgia.”

Got that?

We don’t know who posted the SB 6 signs in mostly liberal Decatur, but we offer a hearty thank you!

Has anyone ever actually heard or seen Erick Erickson stand up for borders, immigration laws and enforcement?

Question: Is Erick Erickson pro-enforcement?

Twitter exchange this morning with Erick Erickson, who has an afternoon drive-time radio (WSB) show in Atlanta. I only hear it on my way home from the gym for about 10-15 minutes several times a week.

@EWErickson: Hey Georgia: You gotta work the phones today. http://t.co/bCYXVv03Ji

@EWErickson: Georgia House Will Raise Your Taxes, But Not Protect Your Religious Liberty http://t.co/ckjtcqFtki

@DAKDIS: @EWErickson But ignore fact that #GEORGIA is giving drivers licenses, state ID cards & public benefits to illegal aliens. @JoshMcKoon #SB6

@EWErickson: @DAKDIS When you get your radio show, you can prioritize the issues you want to focus on.

@DAKDIS: @EWErickson If only. But glad to know yours. Thanks.

GOP Georgia is issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens – Senate Bill 6 is now dead for the year in the $ Republican-controlled Georgia state Senate $.

Posted by D.A. King at 2:54 pm - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

Senate Bill 6, which would end the practice of rewarding illegal aliens with drivers licenses is now dead for the year in the $ Republican-controlled Georgia state Senate $.

We have been temporarily beaten by the Ag lobby, Republican Governor Nathan Deal, Republican Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the AJC-led media and the senate Republicans who regard voters with an unimaginable level of contempt. They are all laughing at us right now…

IN ADDITION TO SB 6 SPONSOR, SENATOR JOSH McKOON, WE THANK THE BRAVE, PRO-AMERICAN REPUBLICANS IN THE GEORGIA SENATE WHO CO-SIGNED SB 6:
Sens. Mike Crane, Steve Gooch, William Ligon, Bill Heath, PK Martin, Greg Kirk, Bruce Thompson, Marty Harbin, Frank Ginn, Michael Williams, Judson Hill and Hunter Hill.
There are 38 GOP Senators in the Georgia Senate.

As we have been telling you since the beginning of session, the plan from Lt. Governor Casey Cagle all along was to stall any committee action on SB 6 until it was too late in the session to do anything with it. Preventing a vote on SB 6 in the senate was priority number one because there would have been a record of which GOP Senators support drivers licenses for illegal aliens – future Democrat voters. I was reminded today that because of senate rules on committee hearings and “second reading” of bill, the “too late day” day was yesterday, (Monday) Day 28 of the session. Again, unless some rules are suspended, SB 6 is dead for 2015.

Siding with Barack Obama, the ACLU and the race-baiters in the tribalist anti-borders lobby, the Chamber of Commerce ordered that illegal aliens would continue to get Georgia driver’s licenses. So they will. Because Georgia is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.

UNLESS WE NOW PUT ‘PLAN B’ INTO ACTION.

Plan B involves something called a “floor amendment.” A senate floor amendment is language inserted into a bill that has already been through the committee process just before the entire senate votes on the bill. For example: (Generally speaking, on SB 6) A bill related to driver’s licenses that has already passed the House being considered on the senate floor between now and the end of session can have wording added that would prevent illegals from getting a Georgia drivers license. To do that, when a related bill comes up for a vote, a senator makes a motion to amend the bill and presents his language to alter the bill. That amendment is then voted on if another senator seconds the motion. If the amendment gets a vote, then enough senators must demand a “YEAS AND NAYS” recorded vote, on the tally machine which creates a permanent record of who voted and in what way. One of the tricks that Lt. Governor Cagle will try here is to allow the Republican controlled senate to vote without recording the votes on the machine, so that no one can prove which senator voted YEA or NAY. This can be stopped by any six senators present. We can still produce a recorded vote on drivers licenses for illegal aliens in Georgia.

Then, if successful, the entire amended bill is voted on. With a recorded vote.

Rule of Law Republicans vs. Chamber of Commerce Republicans – a Dustin Inman Society locator project

One of the reasons we have been putting so much pressure on Georgia state Senators to publicly support SB 6 by co-sponsoring/signing it was to illustrate which of them are truly on the side of the American people, on the side of protecting our lives, jobs, wages, borders. language and Rule of Law and which of them have sold out to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the ACLU/GALEO and joined the Democrats in the “no illegal alien left behind” effort. We think we have done that very well.

ACTION NEEDED:
Below, we list the Republican state Senators’ who fit into that latter Chamber of Commerce group. If you see your own senator on the below list of senators who DID NOT CO-SIGN SB 6, please give your own state Senator’s office a call (then send an email) and leave a thought for the day and explain to the staffer that you know which side the senator is on, you know about about the floor amendment process and are still watching the illegal alien driver’s license sell-out. Try to remember that the senators are supposed to work for you…not the other way around. CONTACT INFO HERE.

**We hope you will pay special attention to Senator John Albers. Like many of them, he thinks he is invisible.

We also remind you that there is no bill in the Republican-controlled Georgia House to stop illegal aliens from getting a drivers license.

List of Georgia Republican state Senators who refuse to co-sponsor SB 6, legislation that would end the practice of rewarding illegal aliens with a driver’s license

Posted by D.A. King at 12:34 pm - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

The GOP-ruled state of Georgia is issuing driver’s licenses, official State ID Cards and many public benefits to illegal aliens. SB 6 will stop the practice of giving them driver’s licenses and State ID Cards. The 56-member state Senate has 38 Republicans, giving them a super majority.

There is no such bill in the GOP-controlled House. The House is one member shy of a super Republican majority.

Americans are dying at the hands of illegal aliens. The Georgia governor, Republican Nathan Deal, says we are spending $2.4 billion annually on illegal immigration. English is an optional language in the Peach State. Deal doesn’t mention immigration in any language.

DO AMERICAN LIVES MATTER WHEN IT COMES TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?

DO AMERICAN LIVES MATTER WHEN IT COMES TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?

Illegal immigration and the refusal of common sense enforcement by all branches of our government at all levels is killing us. Literally.

There is nothing we can add to the story below. Please see it, watch the video and then decide for yourself: Do any American lives matter? Will giving illegal aliens a driver’s license here make them want to leave Georgia?

HEADS UP: Senate Bill 6 to end the current practice of giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in Georgia is dying in the Georgia Capitol is being smothered by the Republicans who control the legislature. It is in the Senate Public Safety Committee and on orders from the Lt. Governor, the Chairman there has refused to even have a hearing.

Most Senate Republicans refuse to even help by co-signing the bill. Just a few examples of Republicans who shy away from co-sponsoring SB 6: Roswell state Senator John Albers. Savannah state Senator Dr. Ben Watson. Cobb County state Senator Lindsey Tippens. Cherokee County state Senator Brandon Beach.

Below is a short video of one American father testifying to congress last week on the consequences of being a “Chamber of Commerce, anti-enforcement politician.”

You Could Hear a Pin Drop During Father’s Devastating Testimony on Illegal Immigration: ‘Do Black Lives Really Matter?’

From The Blaze

Jamiel Shaw, whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008, blasted the Obama administration’s immigration policies during a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing on Wednesday.

“My son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, a child brought to this country by no fault of his own,” Shaw began. “My family’s peace and freedom was stolen by an illegal alien from Mexico. He was brought here by his illegal alien parents and allowed to grow up as a wild animal.”

He continued: “Some people believe that if you are brought over by no fault of your own that it makes you a good person. They want you to believe that DREAM Act kids don’t murder. I am here to debunk that myth…

Jorge Ramos is an open borders dude – from Time magazine

Posted by D.A. King at 10:56 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

The below quote is an excerpt from a Time magazine interview with Miami-based activist journalist Jorge Ramos December 1/ December 8, 2014 titled “America’s News Anchor” by Michael Scherer.

On the agenda of expanding NAFTA to include the free flow of labor to match the free flow of goods and services, Ramos has also told me personally that “this country is not ready for that…”

“Then what had he meant by comparing the southern border fence to the Berlin Wall?

Ramos, to Time:

“The taboo issue of an open border should be tackled. Not now. Politically it is impossible even to discuss that,” he said. “But I don’t see why we can’t have in North America the same immigration system that they have within the European Union.”

Senior Republican state Senator in GOP Georgia on Obama’s exec amnesty: “If President Obama gave them a legal status, we should respect that and let them live in peace”

Posted by D.A. King at 3:59 pm - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

Another reason we call it “Georgiafornia.”

The below are quotes made to foreign langauge media last year by Republican state Senator Tommie Williams after he successfully led the opposition to an amendment that would have ended the practice of awarding Georgia drivers licenses to illegal aliens who benefit from Obama’s mass deferred action amnesty.

“If President Obama gave them a legal status, we should respect that and let them live in peace.”

“This is a country of laws, and if they gave you permission to be here, it is because they have met the requirements for that.”

Williams is the former President Pro Tem of the Georgia Senate. He is often thanked for his help by the illegal alien lobby here. With 56 total members, the GOP has a 38 member super-majority.

This year’s attempt at stopping driver licenses to illegal aliens is SB 6, from Senator Josh McKoon. It has 12 co-sponsors. And near zero chance of even seeing a hearing. There is no similar legislation in the Republican majority House.

Due to the extremely successful news blackout on all nearly things immigration by the Atlanta Associated Press buearu, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Georgia Public TV, the local NPR station and most TV news outlets, most Georgians have no idea that the Republican-ruled state is giving illegal drivers licenses and other public benefits (including un-employment benefits) or that there is legislation to stop that lunacy. State Tea Party groups are mostly focused on Common Core, a bill to increase taxes for transportation improvement and “religious freedom” bills.

Republican Governor Nathan Deal, back when he would mention the fact that illegal immigration even existed, has made the public estimate that Georgia taxpayers spend about $2.4 billion annually on that crime. The Tea Party groups are crazed about a possible expenditure of $1.3 billion a year to re-build roads, bridges and improve Atlanta’s legendary horrible traffic problems. Most Tea Party groups are extensions of the local GOP groups.

Pro-enforcement conservatives here have taken to calling our Chamber of Commerce-controlled state “Georgiafornia.” We have more illegal aliens here than Arizona and English is an optional language. Ya’ll.

For many, the media-perpetuated myth that the last six years has produced “record deportations” makes it hard to accept the fact that it is more difficult to be deported from Obama’s “transformed America” than it is to win the visa lottery.
– D.A. King

Opinion: Pro-enforcement Americans celebrate Texas ruling on Obama’s executive actions

Hooray! Finally! Yipee! Americans win one in America! Viva, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen!

Last week, Judge Hanen ruled in favor of a 26-state coalition asking that President Obama’s emperor-like decree of de facto amnesty for about five million illegal aliens be delayed while a final determination is made on its constitutionality. Look for this to end up in the U.S. Supreme Court and for Obama’s amnesty to be permanently derailed.

Judge Hanen was confirmed by a 97-0 vote of the United States Senate on May 9, 2002.

There is a bright side of this decision for the Obama administration: Hanen has officially expressed clear agreement with the president. Albeit the pre-November 2014 Obama, who made it clear – 23 times – that he lacks the authority to discard laws he finds obstructive to his agenda or to write his own from scratch.

“My cabinet has been working very hard on trying to get it done, but ultimately … I am president, I am not king,” Obama told Univision in October 2010, when asked why he had yet to achieve legalization for millions of victims of borders.

And at a 2011 Univision re-election campaign speech from Obama: “I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books … now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

Indeed. Jubilant pro-borders Americans – of all descriptions – are now daring to consider the possibility that at least part of the Rule of Law upon which our republic was founded has survived six years of the rule of Obama and the meddling by Valerie Jarrett and Cecilia Munoz, on what was already the most liberal and generous immigration system in the world.

The endless “our immigration system is broken” cliché is simply a newspeak expression for the resentful anguish that the United States still has borders.

The unsupervised actions of the gang in the White House on immigration have resulted in this dangerous period of constitutional crisis in our existence as a republic. Unless stopped now on his immigration law rewrite, the mind reels at what Obama has planned for his remaining time in office — or what a future president may do with the treacherous precedent Obama is hoping to set.

For many, the media-perpetuated myth that the last six years has produced “record deportations” makes it hard to accept the fact that it is more difficult to be deported from Obama’s “transformed America” than it is to win the visa lottery.

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in Fiscal Year 2014, 6,466 individuals were removed from the interior who were not convicted criminals, fugitives, or repeat immigration violators. Attentive number-crunchers tell us this represents less than six one-hundreths of one percent (.058 percent) of the estimated 11 million ‘unauthorized’ aliens in the U.S.

By comparison, .3 percent of the 15 million visa lottery entrants every year “win” the opportunity to apply for U.S. green cards.

From NumbersUSA.com: “Interior removals have fallen every year Obama has been in office and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson has pledged to expand the administration’s non-enforcement policies further. As former acting director of ICE John Sandweg told the LA Times, “if you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”

Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbott says already this year, about 20,000 people have crossed the border into his state illegally.

No, expanding DACA and implementing DAPA isn’t about discontinuing deportations or securing our borders. The real prize here is the work permit and the genuine Social Security numbers that are involved in “deferred action status” promised to the irate illegals. This is intended as yet another gift to the group Obama rightly assumes would be the future big-government Democrat voters while he ignores unemployed American workers and our sinking wages.

For common-sense Americans, the majority of whom are pro-enforcement, an inconvenient (rhetorical) question lingers: If Obama had the authority to simply use “prosecutorial discretion” for five million individuals all along, why didn’t he simply order an amnesty for all illegal aliens years ago?

Another rhetorical question: Would Barack Obama, the Democrats and La Raza be as rabidly anti-enforcement on immigration if the hordes of illegals were highly-skilled, English-speaking, potential conservative voters pouring across the border from Manitoba?

Viva, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen!

Don’t confuse legal, illegal immigrants

The recent front-page news report on a federal judge in Texas delaying President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty (“Judge puts hold on immigration policy,” News, Feb. 18) has a glaring inaccuracy and a direct contradiction of previous promises on legitimate use of terms and descriptions from the AJC regarding immigration reporting. Readers were repeatedly told “immigrants” are the targets of Obama’s now delayed amnesty and are “seeking relief” from deportation.

The AJC immigration reporter should know real immigrants, by federal definition, do not require amnesty or defacto legalization by illegal executive actions from Obama. Only illegal aliens have a need for that reward. Not that the Obama regime is deporting many “everyday” illegally present victims of borders anyway.

Immigrants should not be smeared and mixed up with screaming and defiant illegals, especially in a news report designed to drive public opinion.

A proclamation from Reagan titled, “High Seas Interdiction of *Illegal Aliens”:

PROCLAMATION NO. 4865
Sept . 29, 1981, 46 F.R. 48107

HIGH SEAS INTERDICTION OF *ILLEGAL ALIENS

The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States. A particularly difficult aspect of the problem is the continuing illegal migration by sea of large numbers of undocumented aliens into the southeastern United States. These arrivals have severely strained the law enforcement resources of the
Immigration and Naturalization Service and have threatened the welfare and safety of communities in that region.

As a result of our discussions with the Governments of affected foreign countries and with agencies of the Executive Branch of our Government, I have determined that new and effective measures to curtail these unlawful arrivals are necessary. In this regard, I have determined that international cooperation to intercept vessels trafficking in illegal migrants is a necessary and proper means of insuring the effective enforcement of our laws.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, RONALD REAGAN, President of the United States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the statutes of the United States, including Sections 212(f) and 215(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (8 U.S.C. 1182(f) and 1185(a)(1)) [subsec. (f) of this section and section 1185(a)(1) of this title], in order to protect the sovereignty of the United States, and in accordance with cooperative arrangements with certain foreign governments, and having found that the entry of undocumented aliens, arriving at the borders of the United States from the high seas, is detrimental to the interests of the United States, do proclaim that:

The entry of undocumented aliens from the high seas is hereby suspended and shall be prevented by the interdiction of certain vessels carrying such aliens.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-ninth day of September, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and sixth.

Immigration Terms and Definitions Involving Aliens

Immigrant:

An alien who has been granted the right by the USCIS to reside permanently in the United States and to work without restrictions in the United States. Also known as a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR). All immigrants are eventually issued a “green card” (USCIS Form I-551), which is the evidence of the alien’s LPR status. LPR’s who are awaiting the issuance of their green cards may bear an I-551 stamp in their foreign passports.

Immigrant visas are available for aliens (and their spouses and children) who seek to immigrate based on their job skills. If an alien has the right combination of skills, education, and/or work experience and are otherwise eligible, the alien may be able to live permanently in the United States. Per USCIS, there are five employment-based immigrant visa preferences (categories): EB-1, EB-2, EB-3, EB-4 and EB-5. Refer to the USCIS Permanent Worker web site for more details.

Nonimmigrant:


An alien who has been granted the right by the USCIS to reside temporarily in the United States. Each nonimmigrant is admitted into the United States in the nonimmigrant status, which corresponds to the class of visa with which, or purpose for which, he entered the United States (e.g., a foreign student may enter the United States on an F-1 visa, which corresponds to the F-1 student status in which he was admitted to the United States).

Aliens in some nonimmigrant statuses are allowed to be employed in the United States, and others are not. Some nonimmigrant statuses have rigid time limits for the alien’s stay in the United States, while others do not.

Each nonimmigrant status has rules and guidelines, which must be followed in order for the nonimmigrant to remain “in status.” A nonimmigrant who violates one of these rules or guidelines will fall “out of status.” An nonimmigrant who remains “out of status” for at least 180 days is deportable and will be unable to re-enter the United States for 3 years. A nonimmigrant who remains “out of status” for at least 365 days is deportable and will be unable to re-enter the United States for 10 years.
For more information on the types of visas available, refer to the Department of State’s Questions About Visas web page.

*Illegal Alien

Also known as an “Undocumented Alien,” is an alien who has entered the United States illegally and is deportable if apprehended, or an alien who entered the United States legally but who has fallen “out of status” and is deportable.

Pp. 210-230.

(a) The *illegal aliens who are plaintiffs in these cases challenging the statute may claim the benefit of the Equal Protection Clause, which provides that no State shall “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Whatever his status under the immigration laws, an alien is a “person” in any ordinary sense of that term. This Court’s prior cases recognizing that illegal aliens are “persons” protected by the Due Process Clauses of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which Clauses do not include the phrase “within its jurisdiction,” cannot be distinguished on the asserted ground that persons who have entered the country illegally are not “within the jurisdiction” of a State even if they are present within its boundaries and subject to its laws. Nor do the logic and history of the Fourteenth Amendment support such a construction. Instead, use of the phrase “within its jurisdiction” confirms the understanding that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection extends to anyone, citizen or stranger, who is subject to the laws of a State, and reaches into every corner of a State’s territory. Pp. 210-216….

Arizona Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting — When the U.S. Chamber of Commerce teamed up with the ACLU and La Raza to kill the Arizona E-Verify law designed to protect jobs and wages from illegal aliens

Wikipedia: “Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting was a United States Supreme Court case which dealt with the question of whether the Legal Arizona Workers Act was invalid under federal statutes, in particular the Immigration Reform and Control Act. On May 26, 2011, the Supreme Court ruled, in a 5-3 decision, that The Legal Arizona Workers Act was not preempted by federal legislation.[2] Justices Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Alito and Thomas formed the majority opinion, while Justices Breyer, Ginsburg and Sotomayor formed the minority opinion (with Sotomayor filling her own dissenting opinion); Justice Kagan was recused in the case, because of having a prior role in the case because of her former role as the U.S. Solicitor General…”

Note from D.A. King in a MDJ column from 2012:

“Considering the ongoing, inflammatory and shameless race-baiting struggle by the illegal alien lobby to stop the use of the legally correct and far-too-accurate term “illegal alien” to describe illegal aliens, pro-enforcement Americans are finding it quite difficult to disguise their smirks at the fact that in last week’s (2012) 1-hour, 20-minute Supreme Court hearing on the Obama/Mexico/ACLU/La Raza suit against Arizona’s 2010 illegal immigration/public safety law, the term “illegal alien” was used 11 times. And each of those uses was by one of the justices. And using it seven times was the self-described “wise Latina” Justice, Sonia Sotomayor.”

Example: “Because we keep talking about whether the APA-type definition of licensing is what Congress intended or not, but you don’t disagree that Congress at least intended that if someone violated the Federal law and hired * illegal aliens of Hispanic — undocumented aliens and was found to have violated it, that the State can revoke their license, correct, to do business?” Justice Sonia Sotomayor.”
