It’s school time; do you know where the illegal immigrant children are?

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Education officials across the country are in the process of testing their old and new math skills as annual back-to-school rituals begin taking shape.

On individual schools’ and school districts’ resource ledgers, there are textbooks, computers, personnel head counts, school buses and routes, lockers, desks and chairs, chalk, blackboards and audio-visual equipment.

You know, the stuff that makes a school a school — an appropriate learning environment for the young people who cross the schoolhouse threshold.

 

And then come the young people — the intended recipients of public education dollars who put those ‘readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmetic skills to the real test.

Who, exactly, are the recipients?

Unfortunately, in many instances, we may not know.

School officials can’t necessarily ask foreign-born children who they really are, and the young people’s caretakers don’t necessarily want you to know.

The headline on an Aug. 18 press release speaks volumes: “Influx of Illegal Immigrant Children Likely to Strain Public Schools.” It was distributed by Project 21, a public-policy collective that focuses on black conservatives.

Forthwith, some of the highlights in the press release:

• The new recipients: An estimated 90,000 unaccompanied children may illegally cross America’s threshold by Sept. 30, and that number is projected to hit 142,000 in 2015. Neither figure represents immigrant children with parents or other relatives already here in the States.

• The new policies: In a nutshell, the federal government has said open all public schoolhouse doors to immigrant children, even if you do not know who they are. And whatever you do, do not ask about immigration status. Period. That public policy was reinforced in a springtime “Dear Colleague” letter that federal authorities sent to school authorities across the nation. The Obama administration threatened to throw down the Justice Department gauntlet if state authorities and/or local school districts violate federal policies regarding education.

A black conservative underscored the contrariness of the policy.

“The sad irony is that American mothers being criminalized for wanting better schools for their kids are black and they pay taxes. Illegal immigrants do not. Also disturbing is the idea that school district officials aren’t permitted to even inquire about legal status,” said Project 21 member Stacy Washington, a mother, former school board member and St. Louis radio talk show host, who was quoted in Monday’s press release.

• The new problems: State authorities and teachers unions have been crying uncle about class sizes, and the new school year has yet to even sweep across the nation.

Senior White House officials are in talks with business leaders that could expand the executive actions President Barack Obama takes on immigration

Since the recession began, corporate special interests have lobbied for immigration expansion and amnesty even as they laid off U.S. workers. Today, the White House is the one doing the lobbying to get these businesses on board with a series of executive actions on immigration.

Politico reports:

Senior White House officials are in talks with business leaders that could expand the executive actions President Barack Obama takes on immigration.

Obama was initially expected to focus only on slowing deportations of potentially millions of undocumented immigrants and altering federal enforcement policies. Now top aides are talking with leaders in big companies like Cisco, Intel and Accenture, hoping to add more changes that would get them on board.

 

Please comment on “White House meets with big biz on immigration,” by Anna Palmer and Carrie Budoff Brown of Pol itico.

Cisco announced just a few days ago that they plan to layoff 6,000 workers (eight percent of their workforce!) in 2015 (Personal Liberty Digest and Silicon Valley Business Journal have the details).

Intel (along with Adobe Systems, Apple, Google, Intuit and Pixar) had to be forced by the U.S. Department of Justice to dispense with agreements to not hire away each other’s talent, Information Week reported last year.

Accenture is the fifth largest employer of H-1B guest workers in the U.S., according to the New York Post, and 40 percent of their worth comes from outsourcing.

According to Politico, the White House wants to hear what it would take to get big businesses like these to give President Obama political cover for executive amnesty:

Senior administration officials stepped up their engagement with companies and business groups over the past month as they look to produce a series of executive orders starting in September. Aides are asking industry executives for ideas and are trying to earn their support against an expected barrage from Republicans opposed to Obama taking any action.

 

The cheap labor lobby enjoys it’s own form of political cover from a media that mostly avoids mentioning layoffs in stories about business interests lobbying for immigration expansion and legalization.

Last month, one week after Bill Gates co-authored an editorial with fellow billionaires Sheldon Anderson and Warren Buffet that called for more foreign labor, Microsoft announced it was laying off 18,000 people. Senator Sessions gave an impassioned speech about the sequence of events from the Senate floor but Computerworld was one of the only media outlets that considered it a big enough story to cover.

Last year, businesses were laying of tens of thousands of Am erican workers even as they sent a letter to Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader Pelosi, urging them to take up the Senate’s immigration expansion bill to give them hundreds of thousands of new foreign workers. But the The Washington Examiner was just about the only media to consider it newsworthy.

Now, it appears the White House is lobbying Big Business when it comes to executive immigration actions. The White House is hosting a series of “Listening Sessions” with outside groups. According to Politico:

Representatives for high-tech, agriculture and construction interests have put forward a range of fixes, from recapturing unused green cards to tweaking existing work authorization programs.

 

Politico’s story doesn’t include a perspective from anyone who argues that American workers (including immigrant workers who are already here) should have priority over new foreign workers; or that businesses should spend less time lobbying for foreign workers and more time recruiting and training from groups of chronically unemployed Americans.

Refugee Settlement Watch – Palestinians, the UN’s phoney refugees

Palestinians, the UN’s phoney refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2014

We have written many times here at RRW about the ‘Palestinians’ as pawns, as the people doomed to be called ‘refugees’ from generation to generation perpetually cared for by a special agency (just for Palestinians!) known as UNRWA.

But, since those same ‘refugees’ have been in the news lately for building cross-border tunnels with money that came from your pocketbooks in order to more stealthily attack Israel, this article at theFinancial Post is a good summary of what author Lawrence Solomon calls the “bizarro world” of UNRWA.

Solomon begins with this:

In the up-is-down bizarro world of UNRWA, the number of refugees only grows and grows

RIDDLE: You’re an American citizen, born and raised in the U.S., who has never set foot outside your country. You are also a refugee from a faraway land. What is the explanation?

Refugee Settlement Watch – New York Lutheran church may house alien children because the church is broke

New York Lutheran church may house alien children because the church is broke

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2014

A “financially troubled” Lutheran Church on Long Island riled the community of Commack recently when it said it was considering housing some of the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ flooding the US border in recent months.

A NYC fire fighter who lives next door said:  “It’s basically going to be a hotel right next to my house.”

Lutheran church in Commack, NY could become a “hotel” for the unaccompanied alien children.http://www.dailygazette.com/news/2014/aug/16/plan-send-immigrant-kids-ny-church/

Who put them up to it—-Lutheran Social Services of New York *** which says it has the bucks to pay (an affiliate of the big kahuna Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service).

From Newsday (hat tip: Caroline):

A Lutheran church in Commack may host some of the tens of thousands of immigrant children illegally crossing the United States’ border with Mexico mainly to reunite with family here, the church’s pastor said Tuesday.

The financially troubled Holy Cross Lutheran Church had to cancel a meeting last week after outraged neighbors packed the church to protest the proposal, but Rev. Dennis Walker said the congregation is still considering it and hopes to meet in coming weeks to decide.

Walker said community opposition was being fueled by misinformation about the proposal, and he hopes “people will reconsider in a more rational light. This is minimal impact on the community with substantial benefits” such as jobs for workers who would remodel the building to create the living quarters.  [Here is one of my questions, if the "children's" border surge ended tomorrow and the church had already been remodeled, then what?  Would it house other migrants of some sort?---ed]

Potomac Tea Party Report – Thomas Perez stirring up racial strife

Thomas Perez stirring up racial strife – Former Casa De Maryland Board Member and Former Director of Human Resources and Labor for Maryland

thomasperez

 

 

 

It’s no surprise to see this piece in the New York Post today: Why the Obama administration sees racism everywhere.  From the article:

Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, who’s made incendiary — and shamefully disingenuous — statements about race relations in America.

Last month, for instance, Perez told hundreds of black students in Washington, DC, that school authorities in the South recently had black high-schoolers arrested for infractions as innocuous as fashion faux pas and farting.

He made the shocking allegation during a July 15 speech he delivered at Howard University.

Author Paul Sperry shows that’s a complete lie.  He goes on:

There’s only one explanation: To rile young African-Americans up about the specter of a still-racist America. (Requests to Perez’s office for comment went unanswered.)

School administrators aren’t the only people Perez has framed as racists. He’s also railroaded dozens of banks, including Bank of America and Wells Fargo, for alleged lending discrimination.
