Responsible! David Lubell, Welcoming America

I wish now I had the time before I go away for a few days to post all the stories I had piled up about school systems across America in deep financial (and social) trouble due largely to the cost of educating immigrant children whose needs are enormous.  I was planning a big post on the ‘towers of babel’ problem and wish now I had posted them individually.

Responsible! Holly Johnson Catholic Charities

Here is one, at the Nashville Scene (considered a far-Left publication) entitled: As Nashville’s immigrant population grows, Metro public schools are straining at the seams that just came in this morning and will leave it to you to read.

The Nashville public school system is deteriorating as it struggles to educate students speaking 38 languages (we have actually seen some school systems with more than that number of languages) and who come from impoverished immigrant homes, while Nashville citizens who can afford it, are pulling their kids out of the public schools.

And as readers here know, Catholic Charities is busy, busy, busy bringing more refugees into Nashville.

Responsible! Tom Negri needed more cheap labor for the hotel industry.

Here is just a bit of the Nashville Scene story:

Mishell [the immigrant star of the story---ed] attends Overton High School, considered one of the entry points for Nashville’s immigrant population into the public school system, and hence into American life. It’s a stone’s throw from tony private Franklin Road Academy, and just three minutes from the governor’s mansion.

But it might as well be in another country. The school is bursting at the seams, and a staggering 70 percent of its student body — that’s 7 out of every 10 kids — comes from a low-income family.

NUMBERS USA – TEMPORARY IS FOREVER — Administration today granted another extension of Temporary Protected Status to illegal aliens first given ‘temporary’ residence in 1999 & 2001

By Roy Beck – News Letter

It was so predictable that it is impossible to be shocked. The Obama Administration today continued the tradition of the Bush and Clinton Administrations of pretending that “temporary” means “permanent” and that giving work permits to foreign citizens has no effect on working-age Americans.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Honduras and Nicaragua for an additional 18 months. The affected illegal aliens have been in this country since the beginning of this century. Although Congress never granted them amnesty, they are still here because Pres. George W. Bush and then Pres. Barack Obama have issued one extension after another to people first given “temporary” amnesty from deportation in 1999 (Hondurans) and 2001 (Nicaraguans).

The fact that they are still here to benefit from this latest extension is proof of the corruption of the TPS tool that makes a mockery of a well-intended humanitarian program.

TPS was created as an emergency policy to allow the Executive Branch to temporarily spare illegal aliens deportation when “extraordinary and temporary” conditions such as environmental disasters or wars in their home country temporarily make repatriation exceptionally difficult.

Needless to say the temporary contemporary emergency conditions of 1999 and 2001 are long since past. But as we at NumbersUSA and many of our allies have often said, “In matters of immigration, nothing is quite so permanent as temporary status.”

Other long-time illegal aliens who currently benefit from the TPS designation are those from El Salvador, Haiti, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Syria.

TPS YET ANOTHER REASON AMERICANS DON’T BENEFIT FROM U.S. JOB GROWTH

One form of Executive amnesty and enforcement-law nullification after another has added to the labor surpluses that bedevil the incomes of American wage-earners and their families.

But the greatest contributor to the labor surpluses is Congress through its insistence on adding about one million new legal immigrants a year to compete for U.S. jobs.

That’s why NumbersUSA is running this ad in most of the states with the hottest Senate races:

These are states where candidates are having to pay attention to what voters really care about. Our intent is to apply as much pressure as possible on all the Senate candidates to shape their immigration positions on the basis of what is best for Americans and legal immigrants already here.

We hope you are participating in the many ways that our NumbersUSA staff is providing for you to raise this simple question in immigration policy:

WHO SHOULD GET THE NEXT JOBS?

As the ad notes, nearly all job growth since 2000 has gone to new immigrants.

The legal immigrants who took the jobs did nothing wrong. They merely used an opening offered by Congress. But why should Congress continue to do this?

Thanks for all that you have done and please stay as active as possible in these final two weeks of the Senate campaigns.

Immigration Reform USA – The ACLU Again Uses the 9th Circuit to Undermine the Voters Intent and Will

9th circuit court of appealsOn Wednesday, the 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals struck down a voter approved amendment to the Arizona Constitution that required the state to detain illegal aliens accused of serious felonies until trial. The case is Lopez-Valenzuela v. Arpaio, and once again the ACLU has successfully used a class action lawsuit to undermine legitimate efforts to ensure illegal immigration is deterred.

The amendment passed with 78 percent of the vote in 2006. This was a strong indication of voter interest in 1) ensuring illegal aliens who commit felonies show up for trial, and 2) ensuring that people with no right to be in the country do not flee before deportation. The court used the bogus pseudo-reasoning behind what’s called “substantive due process” to engage in a subjective bit of policy gamesmanship to strike down the constitutional amendment. This area of “substantive due process” has become nothing more than an arbitrary vehicle by which a court is allowed to substitute its political judgment for that of the voters (or legislators as the case may be).

Once again, the judiciary has intervened to ensure illegal immigration continues unabated and the community is unprotected. The people have come to expect this endless legislating from the bench. There was a time when courts were very respectful of voter-approve state constitutional changes; a court would be loathe to strike down any law enacted by direct citizen participation. The three judge panel that initially reviewed the case did just that.  But, as we all now know, the ACLU will never give up until it destroys all remaining U.S. immigration controls. It sought an on-banc review and achieved this victory at the expense of community safety and the integrity of our criminal justice system.
