Inger Eberhart/Letter to the Editor: Illegal aliens debase sacrifices of civil rights leaders
The late Barbara Jordan was the first African-American Congresswoman elected from the Deep South.
She stated, “‘We, the people.’ It is a very eloquent beginning. But when that document was completed on the seventeenth of September in 1787 I was not included in that We, the people. I felt somehow for many years that George Washington and Alexander Hamilton just left me out by mistake. But through the process of amendment, interpretation and court decision I have finally been included in ‘We, the people.'”
How appropriate that the first black congresswoman elected from the Deep South would have this sentiment. During Black History Month, we celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of African-Americans. A people sold into slavery by fellow countrymen whose ancestors survived the Middle Passage to arrive in a foreign land. In the span of 300 years we have gone from the birth of a race to an integral part of the U.S. culture.
As part of Black History Month, we also celebrate the Civil Rights Movement. The movement that caused institutions to recognize African-Americans as citizens of a country that we helped build, fought and died for.
For more 300 years we were considered strangers in our home. We were citizens of a nation that did not recognize us as citizens. Finally, in 1965, we were granted the rights and privileges of citizenship. Civil rights granted to citizens of a nation.
Advance 21 years to 1986. The US grants “one-time” amnesty to 3 million illegal aliens within our borders. With that amnesty, these illegal aliens received the rights and privileges of citizenship, including civil rights.
Fast forward to the 21st century. More than 3,000 are killed in the terror of 9/11, some 1.2 million illegal aliens are apprehended at the border while more 4 million cross without apprehension each year, businesses are basing their financials on an illegal alien workforce, 12 Americans per day are killed by illegal aliens and thousands of illegal aliens are marching in the streets of some of the nation’s largest cities demanding the rights and privileges of full citizenship.
Ms. Jordan was also the Clinton-appointed Chair of the Commission on Immigration Reform. She stated that, “To make sense about the national interest in immigration, it is necessary to make distinctions between those who obey the law, and those who violate it.”
Illegal aliens have violated the law by choice. Illegal aliens chose to leave their homeland, separate from their families, and enter the U.S. illegally. They are, then, caught, jailed and subsequently deported. As such, they are treated as the non-citizen criminals they have chosen to become. They have chosen to leave a place where they have civil rights to a place where they have none.
As an African-American conservative, I value and appreciate the strength of the civil rights movement activists. They fought for civil rights for citizens. It debases the sacrifices of these civil rights activists for illegal aliens to demand something that does not belong to them.

The state of illegals: A distressing verdict…
A federal appeals court can do what a U.S. District Court jury in Tucson failed to do — establish a zero tolerance policy for illegals trying to cash in on American justice. — There must be no consolation prize for any of the 16 Mexicans — or their lawyers — who sued an Arizona rancher and others for $32 million…
To its credit, the jury on Tuesday ruled that rancher Roger Barnett, owner of a 22,000-acre ranch about five miles north of the Mexican border, did not violate their civil rights when he detained them at gunpoint after they had illegally entered the U.S. in 2004. HERE

A legal permanent resident (LPR) or “green card” recipient is defined by immigration law as a person who has been granted lawful permanent residence in the United States.
Permanent resident status confers certain rights and responsibilities. For example, LPRs may live and work permanently anywhere in the United States, own property, and attend public schools, colleges, and universities. They may also join certain branches of the Armed Forces, and apply to become U.S. citizens if they meet certain eligibility requirements. This Office of Immigration Statistics Annual
Flow Report presents information obtained from applications for LPR status on the number and characteristics of persons who became LPRs in the United States during 2007.
In this report, years refer to fiscal years (October 1 to September 30).
In 2007, a total of 1,052,415 persons became LPRs of the United States (see Table 1 and Figure 1). The majority of new LPRs (59 percent) already lived in the United States when they were granted lawful permanent resi-dence. Two-thirds were granted permanent residence based on a family relationship with a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident of the United States.
The leading countries of birth of new LPRs were Mexico (14 percent), China (7 percent) and the Philippines (7 percent).

Justice Department: We Fail to Enforce Deportation Orders
An internal Justice Department study found that despite spending $20 million or more last year to litigate deportation orders, only one-fifth of illegals who reached the circuit courts and were ordered out have been shown the door.
By Mike Levine
The U.S. government spends tens of millions of dollars each year persuading federal circuit courts to uphold orders for thousands of illegal immigrants to leave the country, but those orders have been enforced in only one-fifth of the cases, according to sources familiar with a recent Justice Department study.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a branch of the Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for “removing” illegal immigrants who stay in this country against the law. But the study found that more than 80 percent of the illegal immigrants whose deportation orders were upheld by a federal appeals court last year were still in the country as of five weeks ago, according to an internal Justice Department memo obtained by FOX News.
