Bush to establish federal task force to push for amnesty again

Posted by D.A. King at 4:18 pm - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

The President is spending tax money to try to sell his amnesty plan.

You are supposed to believe after paying a $2000.00 fine and three years income taxes that illegals will then assimilate into America… and no more will come. You know, like how it happened after the 1986 amnesty.

Got it?

Bush announces task force to assist immigrants
By Stephen Dinan
The Washington Times
Published June 8, 2006

OMAHA, Nebraska — President Bush yesterday announced the creation of a task force to expand English, civics and history lessons as he pushes his plan for longtime illegal aliens to gain a path to citizenship.

He said the government must take an active role in assimilation, a move he called critical both for the nation and for those who have entered its borders.

I love this part: A 2004 survey by the Pew Hispanic Center found that 57 percent of Hispanics felt they had to learn English to be part of American society, while 41 percent said they did not think it was necessary.

Illegal Immigrants: A Question of Loyalty
By David Brody
CBN News – Capitol Hill

CBN News –SANTA ANA California – It is an image that is hard to forget: illegal immigrants by the thousands demanding legal citizenship. But American patriotism seemed to be lost in a sea of flags from South of the border.

This has led many Americans to wonder where these protesters pledged their allegiance – to America or Mexico?

More than half of the 12 million illegal immigrants come from Mexico, and 22 percent come from the rest of Latin America. That means 78 percent of the illegals are Hispanic.

This is Santa Ana, California, not Mexico. But sights and sounds can be deceiving. Three out of every four people here are Mexican, and Spanish is the main language. In California, most immigrants say they identify with their country of origin.

Only 20 percent say they identify or feel American. But in a city that is predominately Mexican, one woman here stands out: a Latino as patriotic as they come. A sign in her front yard reads “English for the children.”

Lupe Moreno is considered a traitor by her people. She went from Latino housewife to flag- waving American. She has devoted her life to keeping illegals out of the country. The story of how she got to this place is just as much amazing as it is painful.

Lupe was born in America. Her father, a Mexican illegal who ran a smuggling operation, brought an untold number of illegal immigrants into her home. She was abused by many of them.

“I was totally terrified of life. Totally,” Lupe said.

Eventually, Lupe moved beyond her painful childhood. She began reading about America’s history, a history she fell in love with. And she worked for social services and saw how illegals were abusing the system.

Her patriotism bothered her husband, who was an illegal immigrant from Mexico. After 26 years of marriage, they divorced because he insisted she call herself Mexican.

“I would say no,” Lupe said. “I’m an American. And then, there was one time I thought I was going to be able to say it. We both looked at each other, and I said ‘I’m sorry.’”

The truth about “La Raza” from Georgia Congresman Charlie Norwood

Congressman Norwood on La Raza

From Human Events online:
April 7, 2006

It is past time for all Americans to know what is at the root of this outrageous behavior, and the extent to which the nation is at risk because of “La Raza” — The Race.

There are many immigrant groups joined in the overall “La Raza” movement. The most prominent and mainstream organization is the National Council de La Raza — the Council of “The Race”.

To most of the mainstream media, most members of Congress, and even many of their own members, the National Council of La Raza is no more than a Hispanic Rotary Club.

But the National Council of La Raza succeeded in raking in over $15.2 million in federal grants last year alone, of which $7.9 million was in U.S. Department of Education grants for Charter Schools, and undisclosed amounts were for get-out-the-vote efforts supporting La Raza political positions.

The Council of La Raza succeeded in having itself added to congressional hearings by Republican House and Senate leaders. And an anonymous senator even gave the Council of La Raza an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for “housing reform,” while La Raza continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Public opinion seems to be against the Senate and the President… that fact will stop them from pushing amnesty again

This from NumbersUSA.com

A new Zogby poll of likely voters, using neutral language, finds that Americans prefer the House of Representatives’ enforcement-only bill by 2-1 over Senate proposals to legalize illegal immigrants and greatly increase legal immigration. The poll was conducted for the Center for Immigration Studies

By eight-to-one, Americans think it is unfair to grant rights to illegal immigrants while thousands of people wait each year to come to the United States legally. Fully eighty-six percent of Republicans think it is unfair, as do seventy-seven percent of Democrats.
Opinion Dynamics Poll for FOX News, April 4-5, 2006

Sixty-five percent of those surveyed said they would be willing to pay significantly higher prices for some goods and services should that be the result of tighter control of the southern U.S. border and a resulting lower number of undocumented workers.
Zogby Poll, March 31-April 3, 2006

Fifty-six percent of Americans polled say the U.S. should NOT grant temporary-worker status to foreigners who are here illegally, as this would make them and their families eligible for government services while they are here. We should not reward people who have broken the law, and this will encourage even more people to enter the United States illegally.

Kate Smith is dead….and I don’t feel so good myself

Kate Smith is dead – and I don’t feel so good myself.

The state of Michigan has already eliminated the words “America” and “American” from its MEAP [Michigan Educational Assessment Program ] test.

Now, this from the Detroit News

Michigan’s politically correct bureaucrats almost killed the use of “America” in social studies classes. Fortunately, state school Superintendent Mike Flanagan says he is stopping this nonsense. But taxpayers and parents must remain vigilant against this dumbing down of our students

An employee of the Michigan Department of Education, Karen Todorov, recently suggested that Michigan teachers not use the words “America” or “American” in their teaching duties.

“We use the United States after the founding of the nation, and before that ‘the colonies of North America’ or ‘North Americans,'” she wrote in an e-mail.

The Associated Press quotes Todorov as saying, “it’s important in an increasingly global world to recognize that America also refers to other countries in South America and elsewhere in North America”.

””Our intention is as we’re moving forward in our global world that we recognize that other people share this hemisphere with us,” Todorov said on a Detroit radio show.

I am not making this up.

We are all “North Americans” you see. It would be more “internationally friendly” to say so. Less exclusionary.

Less “ethnocentric”.

Less American – more borderless continent with the “free flow of goods and people “I am thinking.

Along with a common language, Christmas and our borders, the word “America” is headed to the scrap heap of politically incorrectness.
:
I was thinking about Todorov when I read about Harry Reid and Ken Salazar.

Before the United States Senate voted for another amnesty to illegals – both employers and aliens – last week, Senator James M. Inhofe, offered an amendment to the now passed “amnesty –again” legislation that would make English the “official language”. A U.S. Senator from Nevada, Harry Reid, had this to say:

“This amendment is racist. I think it’s directed basically to people who speak Spanish,”

Before it was eventually approved, the wording of the amendment was dutifully changed to “national language”.

Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado dismissed the amendment as “divisive and anti-American”.

Maybe he meant “un-United States”.

It can’t happen here. Americans leaving their lifelong homes

From the “why do you think I call it Georgiafornia” file, a story about how Orange, California from the Orange County Register.

Changes in Orange bring exodus
Longtime neighbors in Orange, wearied by crowding and new cultures, decide to leave.

By ELLYN PAK
The Orange County Register

“I’m moving to an American neighborhood.” Former resident of Orange.

ORANGE – The Hills left East Vine Avenue two weeks ago. The Wigginses plan to leave in a month or so. And just last week, the Hansons put up a for-sale sign.

In a few months, most of Carol Fulton’s longtime neighbors will be gone. And in a flash, summer barbecues, Fourth of July parades and baseball games at the East Vine cul-de-sac will become distant memories.

Fulton sits on her front porch, pensive and surveying the neighborhood. It has changed drastically, she says.

The familiar smells and sounds of backyard barbecues are replaced by mariachi music and the honking horn of a shaved-ice cart. Fulton sees unfamiliar cars and people streaming onto the street.

Overcrowding caused by boarding homes – more than two leases on the same property – is an issue that city officials and residents have grappled with for years.

“This used to be a fun neighborhood,” says Fulton, 56. “Kids stayed outside until 10 or 11 p.m. I figured we’d live here until we died
