There is and will always be Consequences of War

There is and will always be Consequences of War

020806-F-7823A-004The U.S. has begun surveillance flights over Syria after President Barack Obama gave the OK, U.S. officials said, a move that could pave the way for airstrikes against Islamic State militant targets there. Seriously now, the big news is that Barack Obama has taken it upon himself to accommodate military reconnaissance as he has prior to this action.

When the very, very first Articles of Impeachment were in the process of being drawn up it was for this identical reason. Sure we have a temporary means called aptly, The War Powers Act that will allow him to begin making appropriations against the ISSI soldier placements as well as command headquarters, and communications devices, surface to air missiles whilst at the same time photographing the same in Syria. While the White House says Obama has not approved military action inside Syria, additional intelligence on the militants would likely be necessary before he could take that step. Pentagon officials have been drafting potential options for the president, including airstrikes.

This is the precise point where r-e-a-l Americans should stop at least one thing they do per week, surrender it, and take the allotted amount of time and should — for the sake of knowledge (and being right at Happy Hour = $$) and study the U.S. Constitution and other great documents written by individuals that lend their power to the law.

However, even against the advice of Wikipedia and the notion of not having a precise law passed, it is still quite beneficial to look at the precursors to it as they stand now. The War Powers Act of 1941, also known as the First War Powers Act, was an American emergency law that increased Federal power during World War II. The act was signed by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and put into law on December 18, 1941, less than two weeks after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The act was similar to the Departmental Reorganization Act of 1917 as it was signed shortly before the U.S. engaged in a large war and increased the powers of the president’s U.S. Executive Branch.

The act gave the President enormous authority to execute World War II in an efficient manner. The president was libya-a_2340247bauthorized to reorganize the executive branch, independent government agencies, and government corporations for the war cause. With the act, the President was allowed to censor mail and other forms of communication between the United States and foreign countries. The act and all changes created by its power were to remain intact until six months after the end of the war at which time, the act would become defunct.

It is of the utmost importance that every diplomat, dignitary, statesman, politician, and for everyone involved in performing Civil Service should be active and willing parts to do what is possible to assist your government — and that, with responsibility.

We all know far too well that President Obama is not in the process of developing a strategy for war. Furthermore, the very worst thing that could happen to us as well as our country is to stand idly while people from the U.S. government over coffee in the morning discussing battle and war plans.

Actually this has happened before in American history; consequently, more than 58,000 men, women, and 0thers were killed heinously and well over 250,000 persons suffered egregious wounds. The executive branch of government was not designed to run wars. That is why we have a Department of Defense, Defense Intelligence Agencies, and our proud standing guard — our men and women in uniform.

Who is Working in the Oval Office…

Never call him ‘Commander-in-Chief’

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????The very first issue that came to me this morning was a voice of a popular news anchor stating, “I’m not sure what anyone is going to do about it…but the fact remains that this president has basically given up on the j0b of being president.” Then immediately thereafter the newsman continued on with how dispatched Barack Obama was after Mr. Foley was filmed being decapitated, and more matters on how things have been going in Ferguson, MO., primarily who was showing up today for Michael Brown’s funeral and of course, who would be speaking.

I mean I was still under the covers during all of this reporting and just like any other person on the planet earth I seriously debated as to whether or not to get up. And right then…is when it happened.

Like someone messing around on an old naval Frigate, to get everyone’s attention some person fired that shot over the bow, and it sounded as if the entire launching apparatus exploded! This was the one time when I literally heard “bells and whistles.”

Back to our news personality — he was interviewing an ex-commando, S.E.A.L., who was now explaining how leaks just don’t happen at that level as a matter of happenstance. In other words they are all planned. This bright and shining used to be Coronel is now in the field of sharing his intelligence with the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

As you may have imagined the topic was military involvement against ISIS, and yes we do know that is happening. Yet, when Syrian officials initiate a directive that Syrian air-space is no longer available for U.S. warplanes and our young Coronel says, “And the Iranians have film of a U.S. drone circling one of their nuclear sites…” the entire ground begins to shake like Napa Valley wine country.

It is precisely at this point in time that I will make a comparison: President George Bush, the Elder set up an operation aptly Gulf_War_Photobox21named Desert Shield. The point of this shield was that Bush the Elder saw something further down the road. Like an invasion of Iraq — and seriously who wants any form of militia that can be called to inhibit your plans? No one!

But wait a minute here — now I am talking about an entire two months that went by and what does it take to actually see a Red Line. It was our best and by far (by his standards!) our brightest President Obama (with the bad eye sight) who during that same period was lessening the Defense budget, talking about getting out of Afghanistan, and seeing to it that our five-six-seven and many longer tours in a theater of war were getting their pink slips on the battlefield!

Now then, if you have chosen to fly and make bombing raids against ISIS, do it with class and dignity. During Desert Shield alone President George Bush, the Elder commanded our combined Air Forces to fly as many as 100,000 sorties per day. Now there is the real Commander-in-Chief!

A Completely Different Look…

A Completely Different Look…

Hannibal with his elephants

Hannibal with his elephants

About a hundred people turned out at a rally in a St. Louis neighborhood today to voice their “unwavering support” of Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teen in Ferguson, Mo., two weeks ago.

The speakers and many in the crowd at the cookout-style event — complete with a classic rock soundtrack — in the parking lot of Barney’s Sports Pub, about 30 minutes’ drive from Ferguson, not only voiced their support of Wilson but also anger at media coverage of the shooting and its aftermath.

The killing of Michael Brown sparked protests in Ferguson that were often peaceful but sometimes turned into angry or violent confrontations with police. The St. Louis suburb was also racked by looting, leading to the state Highway Patrol being given authority there and the National Guard being called out to try to maintain order.

Tensions seemed to ease some this week, however, and after several peaceful nights the National Guard was ordered to leave the city.

Many of the attendees at the rally today were clad in blue T-shirts with a white police shield reading “Officer Darren Wilson — I Stand By You — 8-9-14.” Several said they were relatives of people in law enforcement, and there were some uniformed police officers also in attendance, but they remained inside the bar.

“Now as far as civilized and peaceful protesting is concerned, this is the way it should happen,” says William “Bill” Blakely from Annapolis, Maryland.  “We of course want justice to prevail in this case, however, both sides need to be heard and that without rancor or threatening remarks from the police or passersby.

“Knowing that there is a seated grand jury listening to experts about evidence as well as eye witnesses, this should be a time images (10) - Copywhen the people of the entire area take complete control of the mainstream media.”

As long as the individuals within the immediate area understand that no member of the mainstream-media would write something without a source to back up their claim.

“This is when level heads prevail,” remarks Blakely. This is real reputation building times. People are indeed watching and with good and conscience  behavior towns in the past have remarkably improved. One needs to understand that to bring about “justice” takes time. And is critical as it is, most of us want instant justice just as we do just about everything else in instant-life.

What or how do you feel about Ferguson, Missouri…

What or how do you feel about Ferguson, Missouri…

Map and Scope_1Today whilst reading my business inbox mail from my office computer I received an interesting letter — notification from none other than Word Press! Now mind you I happen to believe that some of the best of the best are using Word Press. Please make no mistake about this idea whatsoever. If you are looking for a down to earth webhost, who treats everyone with kindness and dignity, then my number one (#1) recommendation and choice for you would automatically be Word Press.com.

Those of us who admit that we were not there, and do not know what happened when Michael Brown was shot by a policeman in Ferguson, Missouri, seem to be in the minority.

We all know what has happened since then — and it has been a complete disgrace by politicians, the media and mobs of rioters and looters. Despite all the people who act as if they know exactly what happened, nevertheless when the full facts come out, that can change everything.

This is why we have courts of law, instead of relying on the media or mobs. But politics is undermining law. Even on the golf course.

On the eve of a grand jury being convened to go through the facts and decide whether there should be a prosecution of the policeman in this case, Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri has gone on television to say that there should be a “vigorous prosecution.”

The only alternative explanation is that this is exactly what he intends to do. It is a disgrace either way.

Race is the wild card in all this. The idea that you can tell who is innocent and who is guilty by the color of their skin is a notion that was tried out for generations, back in the days of the Jim Crow South. I thought we had finally rejected that kind of legalized lynch law. But apparently it has only been put under new management.

Television people who show the home of the policeman involved, and give his name and address — knowing that he has yuk_imagesalready received death threats — are truly setting a new low. They seem to be trying to make themselves judge, jury and executioner.

Then there are the inevitable bullet counters asking, “Why did he shoot him six times?” This is the kind of thing people say when they are satisfied with talking points, and see no need to stop and think seriously about a life and death question. If you are not going to be serious about life and death, when will you be serious?

By what principle should someone decide how many shots should be fired? The bullet counters seldom, if ever, ask that question, much less try to answer it.

Since the only justifiable reason for shooting in the first place is self-protection, when should you stop shooting? Obviously when there is no more danger. But there is no magic number of shots that will tell you when you are out of danger.

Even if all your shots hit, that doesn’t mean anything if the other guy keeps coming and is still a danger. You can be killed by a wounded man.

Different witnesses give conflicting accounts of exactly what happened in the shooting of Michael Brown. That is one of the reasons why grand juries collect facts. But, if Michael Brown — a 6 foot 4 inch, 300 pound man — was still charging at the policeman, as some allege, there is no mystery why the cop kept shooting.

But, if Michael Brown was surrendering, as others allege, then there was no reason to fire even one shot. But the number of shots tells us nothing.

None of this is rocket science. Why bullet counters cannot be bothered to stop and think is a continuing mystery.

barry and his bullshit factoryAmong the other unthinking phrases repeated endlessly is “he shot an unarmed man.” When does anyone know that someone is unarmed? Unless you frisk him, you don’t know — until, of course, after you have shot him.

Some critics object when someone with a gun shoots someone who only has a knife. Do those critics know that you are just as dead when you are killed with a knife as you are when you are killed by a gun?

If we can’t be bothered to stop and think, instead of repeating pat phrases, don’t expect to live under the rule of law. Do you prefer the rule of the media and/or the mob?

I am gratefully indebted to Mr. Thomas Sowell for  pinning the majority of this article. Adding something of worthiness to an already brilliant piece is not hard to do. It is just a great bit of writing that so enthralls me.

Never Forget — Loose Lips Sink Ships

Never Forget — Loose Lips Sink Ships

Naploeon - CopyThis is a quick article that literally involves everyone — citizen or not a citizen — in the nation. I will readily admit that I have been in utter disbelief since this story broke, and make no insinuations about it, but I am angry as hell. I vividly remember all too well when it became a vogue response when something that was “sensitive, top secret, and eyes only” began to find open sources within the media to administer as much of a particular top secret mission to the public either whilst mission was going on or before or after it occurred.

Call me old school but I became aware of this shenanigan when I was far too young. Military matters albeit known or not known had simply no business being driveled out into the open lines of communication. As for me as a little boy I wondered about what Walter Cronkite was reporting on missions in Vietnam. I wondered where he got the information insofar as he certainly was not there in country, Vietnam. My dad and I had several conversations about this — I just couldn’t understand.

Then one afternoon my dad mentioned a General who was in command of the theater of operations. General Westmoreland was his name and anyone interested in finding out what he was doing I strongly suggest reading The Pentagon Papers.

Not too long after all of that went down in the 1970s and 1980s, Desert Shield and Desert Storm started up and like a child again I was in complete mystification of how easily one could find anything they wanted too about the war in Iraq. The Internet would display fighter jet runs, where the anti-aircraft fire was coming from. As for me — now an adult — I would express “interesting” to those who shared with me what they found; moreover, as part of my educational standards were concerned the use of the Internet in any of my courses regardless of discipline, Internet searching was not a requisite.

At a review of The Pentagon Papers one reader/writer had the dignity to write the following:

Inside the Pentagon Papers addresses legal and moral issues that resonate today as debates continue over government secrecy and democracy’s requisite demand for truthfully informed citizens. When Daniel Ellsberg leaked a secret government study about the Vietnam War to the press in 1971, he set off a chain of events that culminated in one of the most important First Amendment decisions in American legal history. That affair is now part of history, but the story behind the case has much to tell us about government secrecy and the public’s right to know. Commissioned by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, “the Pentagon Papers” were assembled by a team of analysts who investigated every aspect of the war. Ellsberg, a member of the team, was horrified by the government’s public lies about the war – discrepancies with reality that were revealed by the report’s secret findings. His leak of the report to the New York Times and Washington Post triggered the Nixon administration’s heavy-handed attempt to halt publication of their stories, which in turn led to the Supreme Court’s ruling that Nixon’s actions violated the Constitution’s free speech guarantees. Inside the Pentagon Papers reexamines what happened, why it mattered, and why it still has relevance today. Focusing on the “back story” of the Pentagon Papers and the resulting court cases, it draws upon a wealth of oral history and previously classified documents to show the consequences of leak and litigation both for the Vietnam War and for American history.         Genghis

Having experienced this fiasco first hand I will admit to perhaps the sleaziest events concerning the truth. I believe the government owes the truth concerning all things they are involved in. However, missions of war, or battle plans, and an “if-cum” strategy should never be leaked with intent or otherwise.

Ut Oh! It is Eric Holder going to Ferguson, MO.

holder in contemptWell there can be no doubt about it now — US Attorney General aka Eric Holder has made it to Ferguson, MO. Not that I give a hoot about the wannabe real lawyer, cum wannabe appointed to the US Supreme Court, believe me, plans are already in the works, my biggest doubt is that he will try and use this particular case to his advantage.

And please try and remember how the agenda works anywhere within the Obama administration. We as an educated public know the validity and reliability of the Grand Jury system; moreover, the judicial system. Validity as I am sure you remember is that aspect of anything that brings it as useable or acceptable, can it be justified, reasonable, and most of all is it effective and logical. Whereas on the other end we have  reliability.  Reliability is what brings dependability; is the measurement dependable? Is the measurement able to be trusted as true and expected; and is the measurement logical and accurate.

In essence then is what is being measured consistent, steadfast, trustworthy, and dependable. These are the precepts we use to understand reliability. Then again soundness, authority, legitimacy, with strength and legal power are words that may be used for validity. When one delves into the world of journalism any fact or idea brought to any article must answer, is this information consistent, trustworthy, and dependable? Furthermore, does the article contain authority, legitimacy, and soundness?  

These are the exact two monitors that professors use anytime the Internet is cited as a source. Does the source possess authority, steadfastly, and is it dependable. If so we need to ask is it consistent, trustworthy, and is it acceptable.

scalesOur greatest concern and what guides us to the most prayer is that we hope all parties concerned with this sorrowful situation do the right things with all those concerned. Furthermore,  we seek the validity within the Grand Jury; ultimately, it has become our hope that any and all corruption, and dastardly deeds  so often used in the Nation’s Capital will not be able to be so readily used.

Imagine if you will that the president believes it will be of great  value to send someone already cited for Contempt of Congress and retains perhaps the worst civil rights record known to humankind. All one need to do is remember the private school teacher who defied her immediate management and filed a law suit with the Department of Justice. Or if one has the time just look at what fines the Western Division of Philadelphia Public Schools has been forced to pay as punitive damages.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the members of Ferguson, MO., especially those who have suffered at the hands of those who are not members. Following this case as best as we possibly can we still wonder why so many “mujahedeen” people from different communities, states, and nations have even been allowed to participate. Mind you they are the ones with the guns.

Please believe us when we allege that this is going to be a long process. As well it should be. Anything that deals with validity c_illegalalienslawlicenses1 and reliability so acutely needs to be fair, level headed, and the results may not be as we suspect they should be. For example, the Grand Jury in this case does not even seek to be done before October 2014, and that friends is if all goes well.

When a member of law enforcement actually sees the situation wherein they may have to pull their service firearm, what are they trained to do? That’s right — fire until empty. As long as that is a law on the books in Missouri, it will be doubtful that a charge of excessive force could be used for an indictment. Same for trying to get at  law enforcement’s firearm. Same for hard fracturing of the orb wherein the eye sits. We could go on and on about both parties, even if one of them has lost his life.

Keep together as a fabric knit because we are all going through this together! And I have no (zero) tolerance for law enforcement officials who misuse their authority with important evidence; moreover, to selectively state, “I had the videotape…and I ended up turning it over when I felt like it…” As for me there is a lot of crimes committed by that police department.

Therefore, let us all keep level headed and seek closure to this unfortunate incident. Yet, for some reasons I do not trust completely the city officials there in Ferguson, MO.

When things just don’t seem…right or honorable

When things just don’t  seem to be going your way…

the goooo2When various and sundry issues primarily with the government, media, and decisions made by these unique industries – sometimes, more like often times it gets me down. Sometimes I feel what else can I do when we have a president who skirts both houses of congress, eludes the US Constitution (therefore, he is a law breaker), so that he will achieve his (own) personal desires.

What else could it be? Granting amnesty to 5 million illegal aliens through executive order cannot be the only way to get this action done. And my dear friends it is not the only way. First of all this proposed executive order is not close to being fair. I have authored over 1,000 articles on this topic to include the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the DREAM Act, also including, however not limited to deep investigative research that includes Driver’s Licenses for these same DACA members as well as two more matters that I have felt that we have been limited by this administration.

Here is the definition of DACA:

Is a memorandum authored by the Obama administration on June 15, 2012. It was implemented by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. It directs U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to practice prosecutorial discretion towards some individuals who immigrated to the United States as children and are currently in the country illegally.

Going just a bit further with the DACA parameters and any or all matters involving the current administration, we need to sayscales that Barack Obama has not handled his end (including the Democratic Party) justly or clean and clearly. Everything that he had said he was going to do, in fact, the extreme opposite has occurred.

The first of the two matters mentioned previously are of the first part it happened in California. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) flew by helicopter to Santa Catalina Island on Thursday to personally condemn an effort by the Mexican consulate to offer identification cards to undocumented workers there. 

Rohrabacher began his visit with a private, 90-minute breakfast meeting attended by Santa Catalina Island Co. officials, Los Angeles County sheriff’s authorities, and Avalon Mayor Bob Kennedy to discuss the matter. By some estimates, as much as 70% of Avalon’s permanent population of 3,000 residents is Spanish-speaking Latinos. You must find out how this entire matter ends – and it does heat up. Please click the link. To fully understand the significance of Rohrabacher’s position please click here.

The second piece of unduly civic behavior – and are very likely Impeachable Offenses, for both the President and the US Attorney General Eric Holder – came by the means of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. It would perhaps be better to say that the stunts these and other cronies did at the voting polls was and remains unconscionable. Simply put there needs to be a set of procedures that assures that only citizens of the USA have the Right to vote.

Therefore when those various and sundry times of an unruly administration are being deceptive with intent what do I do? Pray, pray, and pray for the Lord’s will be done. Not mine but God’s.

Over the Top, Unfair

Over the Top, Unfair

special-newsThere is no reason whatsoever why any or our sites regular readers should have a problem with the amount of illegal immigration coverage given to the readership. Now if I wanted to talk like our president of the USA, I may utter something to the effect of, “what we have here is a systemic problem with immigration of which my administration has had nothing to do with, insofar as those matters have been carried over from every administration since the beginning of the Nation’s history, primarily George W. Bush the Younger.”

Further to that simply because we have heard him too many times saying, “I can’t get anyoriginal help – so I’ll just do this (executive action) on my own.” I am here to write to explain why there exists a systemic problem and why doing something as serious as granting amnesty to 11.4 million illegal aliens is (not might, or will be, or may cause ruin and further decline in the USA) not the correct way or even the right way to handle any kind of business.

From what I have witnessed from this administration is an underling group of wannabe mobsters. Although there is something in the forefront of my mind that tells me that any organized group of corruptors, briberers, lacking integrity, crooked, depraved, or even debased in character. Actually I am trying to reconcile the events of the last five years such as, the ongoing IRS scandal, the Syrian debacle, and convince me that there was not a lot more that sheds more light on the bludgeoning of Benghazi Libya such as, missing missiles shipped to Benghazi as well as missing significant amounts of money. There has been too much scull drudgery going on in this administration it has been hard to keep up with it.

So we think revealing more just might be the necessary energy to stop Barack Obama from committing the most heinous crime the earth has ever seen. An open admission that the C.I.A. was spying on members of Congress as well as Congressional subcommittee hearings. It has taken the Supreme Court of the United States to rule on whether Barack Obama did the correct thing by appointing his own staff during a Congressional recess. Although the positions seemed unrecognized by members of the press it did not deter members of Judicial Watch.

irs-logoWe think that the entire shenanigans that went on in the continent of Africa were and remain unduly okay. How often do we find our military supporting rebel factions within another country? Muammar Gaddafi and his government were being toppled at the exact same time that the Muslim Brotherhood was taking on positions within the government of Egypt. It does deserve mention to note that in 2009 President Barack Obama used a portion of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act, which was an amendment to the earlier United States Refugee Act of 1980 (Public Law 96-212) with respect to the humanitarian needs of the people occupying the Gaza strip, actually using $20.3 taxpayer funds.

We all feel the need of a great deal of privacy. Our founding fathers wrote a great deal about this topic which we can easily find in the 1st, 4th, and 5th Amendments to the Constitution. However to have an agency operating under the executive branch to have a

Who Could Believe this person?

Who Could Believe this person?

different (special) court handling its right or wrong doing is indeed questionable. Moreover, to bug the citizenry through their telephones and other online technology needs more than a separate and special court. Now there was indeed a person who worked inside of these operation agencies named Edward Snowden who now resides in another country. What did he know? What do we need to know?

Lastly all of these briefly touched on occurrences happened within the last three years out of six years. My prayer tonight is please don’t have Barack Obama leave his vacation surroundings to sign an executive order granting amnesty to 11.4 million individuals who broke our rule of law by coming to this Nation.

How Often are Asylees and Refugees Accommodated…

Map and Scope_1Senator Kennedy, speaking of the effects of the act, said, “…our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually…. Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset….”. The act’s supporters not only claimed the law would not change America’s ethnic makeup, but that such a change was not desirable.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the legislation into law saying, “This [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle that values and rewards each man on the basis of his merit as a man. It has been un-American in the highest sense, because it has been untrue to the faith that brought thousands to these shores even before we were a country.”

However, in all truth and reality immigration changed America’s demographics, opening the doors to immigrants from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Latin American population has also dramatically increased since 1965, though this was more due to the various unexpected results of this act rather than due to this act itself (it is worth noting that this act introduced immigration quotas to Latin America, whereas there were previously no immigration quotas) from the Western Hemisphere.

By the 1990s, America’s population growth was more than one-third driven by legal immigrationKS14598 and substantially augmented by illegal immigration, primarily from Latin America and other parts of the developing world. Before passage of the Hart-Celler Act, immigration accounted for only ten percent of population increase in the U.S. Ethnic and racial minorities, as defined by the US Census Bureau, rose from 25 percent of the US population during the year 1990 to 30 percent in the year 2000 and to 36.6 percent as measured by the results from the 2010 census.

So here is our question: — 10 percent total population increase by immigration is sufficient. What the previous statement said was this: — that after the passage of the Hart-Celler Act immigration rose from 25 percent of the US population during the years 1965 to 1990; furthermore immigration again increased 10 percent from 1990 to 2000 with additional 6.6 percent as measured by the US Census of 2010.

If you have noticed the majority of immigration to the United States has been primarily by surges; moreover, surges that have accompanied the United States war machine. In truth the greatest times of legal immigration, which for some reason inspires those given to illegal immigration, happen normally within five to eight years after a war or military conflict that the USA has engaged upon.(See below.)

The Migration and Refugee Assistance Act was passed in 1962 to deal with unexpected and urgent needs of refugees, displaced persons, conflict victims, and other persons at risk around the globe.
The Act was brought into force during the Clinton administration in 2001 to deal with the crises in the Balkans and Nepal.
The Act was cited by President Barack Obama in 2009 to authorize money up to $20.3 million related to needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.

So if we look critically at the mindset of every administration – it ostensibly looks to be like a good faith gesture to delve into this Migration and Refugee Assistance Act – the sooner the better. Although President Eisenhower did not approve of Latin (or Mexican) immigration, he nonetheless allowed millions of those from war torn Europe to be allowed to enter the USA. President Kennedy did not like the quota system because he felt it was unfair, and President Johnson followed in solidified footprints to see to it that not only the quota system was demolished but the Voting Rights Act (written by JFK) was passed as well.

Presidents Nixon and Ford granted more visas and jobs and refugee status to more Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese than any two other presidents combined. And then there was President Jimmy Carter and we are not aware of his actions.

President Reagan took and ended office by declaring amnesty that was not policed. Most of our readers have been alive since Presidents Bush the Elder, Clinton, and Bush the Younger, and this madman in the White House now who is threatening not only a political party but the people of this country the amnesty of perhaps 11 million more illegal immigrants.

Who Counts as a Refugee and Who Does Not

Who Counts as a Refugee and Who Does Not

us-customs-and-bp-250Here is an example of incompetence that may find a rival class in pre-nursery school. One could easily write pages on the difference between the existing laws for Refugees and those who seek Asylum. All we are going to say is that  we have covered these topics when it was whistle blown that agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were caught paying for the hotel rooms for those they couldn’t find space for. And then we all lived through the drama of when we found out through active duty border agents that they were distributing hand cards with this verse:

Refugee status applies to refugees who have no reasonable opportunity to return home in the foreseeable future, or whose lives depend on third-country re-settlement, should be moved into a country like the U.S., experts say. These types of visas are normally found on people who are downtrodden and face imminent death or some sanction from their host nation. More often than not refugees are on the extreme opposite side of the ruling authority and as such have lost just about everything they own.

The United States Refugee Act of 1980 (Public Law 96-212) was an amendment to the earlier Immigration and Nationality Act and the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act, and was created to provide a permanent and systematic procedure for the admission to the United States of refugees of special humanitarian concern to the U.S., and to provide comprehensive and uniform provisions for the effective resettlement and absorption of those refugees who are admitted.

Giovani is 17, from El Salvador, and came to the United States alone in December, making him one of tens of thousands of Central American minors who have crossed the Rio Grande unaccompanied this year. He found himself alone in the Texas scrub, not knowing which way to go, and so he turned himself in to Border Patrol agents. After a brief detention in Texas, he took his first plane ride to Chicago. When the plane landed, he broke from the pack of children on the runway to touch the fresh snow on the ground, the first he had ever seen. (Ah…so almost unbearably sweet.)

Reading with me so far? Great, because here comes the awful, egregious side of some die hard liberal telling the story. But Giovani’s journey had its origins in 1998, when his mother, Maria, left El Salvador to escape her boyfriend, a violent man who regularly hit her and stopped her from working. Maria is a tired-looking woman in her early 40s. A server at a restaurant, she has spent endless hours on her feet in low-paying jobs. (Notice if possible, the terms of domestic violence that led Maria to leave the Giovani and his brother.)

After realizing that she could not make ends meet in El Salvador, Maria took Giovani, then 18 months, and his brother to their grandmother’s, mortgaged her home, and used the money to get to the United States, which she says was a difficult choice, especially as it meant leaving her children. She describes the fifteen-hour walk through the desert as difficult but bearable, especially compared to where she ended up: Kansas City in the middle of winter. There was snow everywhere, and the desert had only been one link from a hard life to another.

The spoils thus far: Giovani is on his second trip to the United States right now. Maria, hislatin America map mother, has seemed to like the USA where she spends more time telling of her time in the desert and the unbearable coldness of winter in Kansas City.

Not wanting to be considered unkind or merciless in any way – the fact of the matter is that Maria left her children in El Salvador with nothing mind you, absconded the family’s money, and set out for a new life in the USA. Like it or not, the truth is that she illegally entered this nation.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, as right-wing governments battled leftist rebels in Guatemala and El Salvador, and a leftist government battled right-wing rebels in Nicaragua, hundreds of thousands were displaced. As many as 1 million Central Americans fled to the United States.

violenceDuring the 1980s, asylum lawyers faced the challenge of convincing immigration judges that violence was actually taking place in Central America. The Reagan administration, fighting the last decade of the Cold War, was doing its best to keep the brutality of US-allied governments out of the news. The State Department, which weighed in on most asylum cases, would deny widely documented massacres.

In 1996, Congress passed the most significant immigration reform since 1965, and also the most punitive. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act cut off a host of public benefits, required that many immigrants be incarcerated during immigration proceedings, beefed up border enforcement, expanded the list of deportable crimes and closed the courts to many important legal challenges.  (For further reading, click here.)
