Immigrant shelter rejected by Escondido – proponents tell Americans to “go back to Europe” (note, if you explain to this Spanish speaking genius that her ancestors came from Europe, you will likely be labeled a “racist”)

Immigrant shelter rejected by Escondido

A proposal to convert a vacant nursing home in a southwest Escondido neighborhood into a shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children was rejected by the City Council Wednesday night in a 4-1 vote.

Hundreds of people — many holding signs for or against the shelter — packed the council chambers for the hearing, as the panel weighed an appeal of an earlier Planning Commission decision to deny the shelter.

The council majority agreed with the commission that the shelter was incompatible with the surrounding neighborhood for reasons including traffic, safety, parking and community character… HERE

Story paints inaccurate portrayal of King

The recent story (“Georgia’s immigration enforcement panel draws scrutiny,” News, Oct. 23) about D.A. King of the Dustin Inman Society was an obvious hit piece against King. The article implies that since that virtually all of the complaints filed with Georgia’s Immigration Enforcement Review Board were filed by him, King was some sort of misguided “gadfly” out there on his own. The AJC did not consider that King has been on point because of his obvious knowledge of this board and that many of us, rather that contacting the board on our own, would simply channel our findings to King.

For the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center to call King’s organization a “hate group” is ludicrous, given the SPLC’s bigotry and profiteering. As for Jerry Gonzalez of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, Gonzalez has  long attempted to destroy any effort to enforce our immigration laws.

To the editor,

As an immigrant and an advisory board member of the Dustin Inman Society, I find your articles that repeatedly characterize the Dustin Inman Society as anti-immigrant, and now via slanders of the Southern Poverty Law Center, as a “nativist extremist group,” to be extremely offensive.

My parents and aunts and uncles fled a communist regime and spent years in refugee camps, and only emigrated after finding sponsors. They went through the proper steps.

One of the most important civics lessons I learned as a schoolgirl in Rochester, New York, in the 1960s was that the United States system was based on fairness.

To blur the lines between legal and illegal, as your newspaper has repeatedly done, is a violation of the underlying principles of American justice and an insult to all immigrants.

Dear editor,

My family recently returned to Texas where I grew up in a border town after 16 years in the Atlanta area. We still monitor Georgia politics, especially immigration issues. I am a proud Latina donor and board member of The Dustin Inman Society; we follow our friend D.A. King’s efforts to help people understand the truth on immigration and the law.

I was stunned and outraged when I read the AJC piece on King and the Immigration Board that curiously featured the SPLC and remarks from Jerry Gonzalez of GALEO. Gonzalez is widely known for opposition to any immigration enforcement efforts – state or federal. The Anti Defamation League has criticized SPLC for faking a “hate-group” crisis.

Georgia corporations, including the AJC’s parent company, Cox Enterprises, largely fund GALEO. It is insulting that this wasn’t noted in the AJC piece about D.A. King and The Dustin Inman Society’s citizen donors.

Dear editor,

As a Black American conservative and proud member of the Board of Advisors of the Dustin Inman Society, I was saddened to see the AJC report on the Immigration Enforcement Review Board that seemed to stray into smear politics.

I have been a friend of D.A. King for more than a decade and have worked alongside him as a volunteer at the Gold Dome to educate legislators on our illegal immigration crisis. I have also watched the SPLC smear conservative political opponents as “hate groups” in an effort to discredit our work. Referring to D.A. King as anything but an honest, hard working patriot who believes in immigration sanity is shameful.

I have had first hand experience with the SPLC when, along with many Black, Asian and Hispanic Americans, I attended an informative 2015 immigration seminar in Washington, DC that the SPLC later falsely described as a “white nationalist” meeting.

The AJC has damaged its reputation by using the race-baiting and discredited SPLC as an authority on immigration and integrity.

Inger Eberhart

To the editor:

Your article entitled “Georgia’s immigration enforcement panel draws scrutiny” came across as over the top biased against the Dustin Inman Society and its founder D.A. King. The credibility really went down the tubes when you used The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a supposed reliable source. By their definition I would be considered a hate group because of a Christian organization I belong to that believes in traditional values. You can do better than this.

Dear editor,

Re; the AJC on D.A. King: The Dustin Inman Society is named after a 16 year-old Woodstock boy who was killed by an illegal alien who escaped capture and is now hiding out in Mexico. D.A. King has been fighting illegal immigration since he quit his own business in 2003. In your report we find out the SPLC wants to label The Dustin Inman Society a “hate group.”

King should be thanked for the complaints against the officials in Georgia who are evidently violating state laws.

The SPLC is a fake civil rights group that has a poor record. In 1994 Alabama, the Montgomery Advertiser newspaper reported African-Americans had never “held top management positions in the center’s [then] 23-year history, and some former employees say blacks are treated like second-class citizens.”

That the AJC reporter used the discredited SPLC to attack King and the Dustin Inman Society says a lot about the AJC reporter.

Bill Buckler



The article this week about the Dustin Inman Society and complaints about violations of state laws on illegal immigration filed by D.A. King seemed to us like the AJC had other things on their mind.

Inserting the SPLC into the news article was rather obvious.

My wife is an immigrant, which means she is here lawfully. We resent the AJC headlines that read “immigrant” when the topic of the story is clearly illegal aliens who are usually portrayed as victims. We want our borders secured and our laws enforced. Even for immigrants. The SPLC attacks virtually everyone who thinks like this. Your reporter also told us that Jerry Gonzalez doesn’t like King or the immigration enforcement board, but we saw no reference to where Gonzalez gets the money to operate GALEO while he protests against immigration enforcement.

We need more D.A. Kings and far fewer people like Gonzalez and the SPLC staff. And we need fair reporting.

Repost: Can a black, pro-enforcement immigration activist be a “white nationalist?” The Southern Poverty Law Center: part Karl, part Groucho #SPLC

The Southern Poverty Law Center is rightly seen as a pernicious and loathsome racket. It warns that terrorists lurk among veterans and Tea Partiers; its labeling of the Family Research Council as a “hate group” inspired a gay activist to attempt a murderous attack on the FRC’s Washington offices; and it beat Politico to the smear by putting Ben Carson on a list of “extremists,” on par with David Duke and Fred Phelps (for which is was forced to apologize).

But sometimes the SPLC’s righteous fanaticism leads to comical errors. An example of that arose last month at a conference of immigration skeptics outside Washington. Heidi Beirich, one of the SPLC’s chief propagandists, wrote a blog post to help mainstream a posting from an even more extreme group than hers. The upshot was that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (sometime National Review contributor) is evil because he spoke at a “white nationalist” conference. And her tactic succeeded; Beirich’s posting was the basis of an editorial last week by the Kansas City Star criticizing Kobach’s “despicable behavior” for hobnobbing with the wicked.

Here’s the funny part: Beirich’s posting was illustrated with a photo of Kobach speaking at the conference, the caption of which notes that it was taken from the Twitter feed of one @Hunter7Taylor. What do you find when you go to @hunter7taylor’s profile? This:

White nationalist? Turns out her name is Inger Eberhart. I was at the conference too and, though I don’t know her, the photo is definitely her.

So, the SPLC chose to illustrate a menacing warning about a “white nationalist” conference with a photo taken and tweeted by a black woman. And not a plant, but a participant who’s on the board of the Dustin Inman Society, Georgia’s immigration-control citizens’ group led by the indefatigable D.A. King.

As she wrote, “I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia in the years immediately following the civil rights era. I would spot a real white nationalist a lot faster than you ever could.”

Eberhart wasn’t the only improbable “white nationalist.” Maria Espinoza, daughter of a Mexican immigrant and past president of Houston Eagle Forum, heads the Remembrance Project, which honors Americans killed by illegal aliens. Two other speakers were also Hispanic Americans.

This gathering of “white nationalists” also featured a panel featuring me, Mike Gonzalez of the Heritage Foundation (a Cuban immigrant who spoke on promoting assimilation and fighting multiculturalism) and George Mason University economist Bryan Caplan (who made a forthright argument for open borders). As Caplan noted afterward on his blog, “the audience was polite, with little of the vitriol that so sullies cyberspace.”

Yes, yes, I know, I shouldn’t expect anything different from leftist goons. And I don’t really; Beirich is clearly an end-justifies-the-means Alinskyite. But I had expected a certain level of competence, which is apparently lacking. As the great Londo Mollari said, “Arrogance and stupidity all in the same package. How efficient.”

Census Bureau: 44.6% in California Don’t Speak English at Home; 35.6% in Texas; 34.5% in NM; 31.7% in NJ; 31.0% in NY

By Terence P. Jeffrey | October 24, 2017 | 11:05 AM EDT

(CNSNews.com) – In California–which with a July 2016 population of 39,250,017 is the nation’s most populous state–44.6 percent of the people five years of age and older do not speak English at home, according to data released this week by the Census Bureau.

At the same time, according to the Census Bureau, 18.6 percent of California residents 5 and older do not speak English “very well.”

That ranks California No.1 among the states for the percentage of people in both of these categories.

Nationwide, 21.6 percent speak a language other than English at home and 8.6 percent speak English less than very well.

Texas ranked second for the percentage of residents five and older who do not speak English at home (35.6 percent). New Mexico ranked third (34.5 percent); New Jersey ranked fourth (31.7 percent) and New York ranked fifth (31.0 percent).

States Ranked by the U.S. Census Bureau by the Percentage of People 5 and Older Who Speak a Language Other Than English at Home:

West Virginia had the smallest percentage of residents (2.5 percent) who spoke a language other than English at home. Montana had the second smallest (3.7 percent); Mississippi had the third smallest (3.8 percent); Alabama, the fourth (5.1 percent); and North Dakota the fifth (5.2 percent).

The Census Bureau asks about the language people speak in their homes and how well they speak English in its American Community Survey. The numbers released this week were for the 2016 survey.

“We ask one question about whether people speak a language other than English at home, what language they speak, and how well they speak English to create a profile of the languages spoken in communities,” says the Census Bureau on its website.

The first question on language the Census Bureau asks respondents is a yes-no question: “Does this person speak a language other than English at home?”

If the answer is “yes,” there are two follow up questions: “What is this language?” “How well does this person speak English?” For this last question, respondents have the option to answer: very well, well, not well, or not at all. MORE
