For a little while they weren't criminals

For a brief moment there were illegal aliens who had their feet back on Mexican soil today. Unfortunately it was only because they were standing on consulate property. Once they were back on the sidewalk of Portland they had re-entered the United States.

And they got some goodies:

See the white bags they have? They are chock full of information provided by your tax dollars to help an illegal alien make sure that he isn't "taken advantage of." (Next up: State classes to help drug dealers avoid being robbed)

"Prevent Fraud" bag is courtesy of Hardy Myers and the Attorney Generals office. There is absolutely no irony to giving illegal aliens, the people who commit fraud every time they apply for a job, these bags. None at all.

A legal immigrant. Or as I like to say: "Someone who fills out the applications that Mexicans won't do."

I can't tell you how many people were waiting outside "for their cousin."

This is my good buddy. He reads my blog so at least he is well informed. He does say that it's a bunch of lies and I would invite him to cite an example...

Today was a great protest. The consulate didn't expect us, he was apparently suprised that we weren't protesting outside an empty building in Woodburn, we had over 100 people, Fox 12 gave us good coverage on the news and I got to mingle with great people.

Several bloggers were there (I will put up links as they do posts on this event), many people from previous protests, OFIR members, talk show host Victoria Taft and of course this guy:

He's going to "knock me out" for taking this picture of him.

You could sue the tough guy for assault if he knocks you out. But then, you would probably be required to hire an interpreter for him.

Daniel, OFIR, MRS. Victoria, and all the others who could be there: Thank you so much for your efforts!!

Daniel, I need help for a school paper. My teacher says it's not against the law to enter the US without a visa, etc. it's an administrative infraction not a crime. I say it's against the law. Do you know what the crime is?

ILLEGAL ENTRY is a CRIME with up to a 6 month jail sentence & deportation. Illegal Presence is a
crime that demands immediate deportation.
2nd entry or presence is a FELONY with up to 2 years in Jail for the sentence. usc Title 8 sec. 1324
Many Illegal aliens have overstayed their work or travel VISA, this is also a CRIME.
ALL civilized Nations (even Mexico) have laws requiring entry to be approved through their Government.
Daniel, didn't mean to jump in.
go to; for proof

If a crime happens in the forest and nobody seems to care is it still a crime?

The Oregonian

SALEM -- "At a time when immigration is a sizzling political issue, Gov. Ted Kulongoski has ordered state agencies not to participate in the Mexican Consulate's information events."

I guess the heads of these state agencies think they are above the governor as well as the majority of the Oregonians. Time to confront these pencil pushers. Any suggestions as to a campaign to rein in these aids to corruption? How about finding where these state cars are parked and putting leaflets on them showing them how much we dislike them giving away our stolen tax dollars. We need to go directly to the ones that flaunt the laws. Keep up the pressure. They hide behind the police and their little yellow tape and barricades. They can run but they can't hide. Who are these parisites and where do they work?

Picked up in the alt.politics.immigration newsgroup a few minutes ago:

Posted on Sun, Apr. 23, 2006

One internal study found that a restaurant company had submitted 4,100
duplicate Social Security numbers for workers. Other firms submit
inaccurate names or numbers for nearly all their employees. One
child's Social Security number was used 742 times by workers in 42

Evidence of work fraud untapped

Knight Ridder Newspapers

WASHINGTON -- Two federal agencies are refusing to turn over a
mountain of evidence that investigators could use to indict the
nation's burgeoning work force of illegal immigrants and the firms
that employ them.

Last week, immigration authorities trumpeted the arrests of nearly
1,200 illegal workers in a massive sting on a single company, but they
acknowledge that they relied on confidential informants and an
unsolicited tip.

It didn't have to be that hard.

The Internal Revenue Service and the Social Security Administration
routinely collect strong evidence of potential workplace crimes,
including the names and addresses of millions of people who are using
bogus Social Security numbers, their wage records and the identities
of those who hire them.

But they keep those facts secret.

"If the government bothered to look, it could find abundant evidence
of illegal aliens gaming our system and the unscrupulous employers who
are aiding and abetting them," said Rep. J.D. Hayworth, R-Ariz.

The two agencies don't analyze their data to root out likely
immigration fraud -- and law enforcement authorities can't do so
because the agencies won't share their data.

Privacy laws prohibit that, they say.

The agencies also don't use the power that they have.

The IRS doesn't fine employers who repeatedly submit inaccurate data
on workers. Social Security does virtually nothing to alert citizens
whose Social Security numbers are being used by others.

Evidence abounds within their files, according to an analysis by
Knight Ridder Newspapers and The Charlotte Observer.

One internal study found that a restaurant company had submitted 4,100
duplicate Social Security numbers for workers. Other firms submit
inaccurate names or numbers for nearly all their employees. One
child's Social Security number was used 742 times by workers in 42

"That's the kind of evidence we want," says Paul Charlton, the U.S.
attorney in Arizona. "If you see the same Social Security number a
thousand times, it's kind of hard for them to argue they didn't know."

The potential crimes are so obvious that the failure to provide such
information to investigators raises questions about Washington's
determination to end the widespread hiring of illegal immigrants.

An estimated 7 million unauthorized workers are employed in the United
States. They're picking crops, building homes and tending yards. In
some cases, they work for the government on public projects that pay
them with taxpayer money.

They've built roads in North Carolina and military housing in
California and even helped rebuild the Pentagon after 9-11, until law
enforcement found out.

They also work at airports, seaports and nuclear plants.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has asked Congress for
access to earnings reports, sent by employers with money withheld for
taxes and Social Security.

The reports contain workers' names and Social Security numbers, and
when they don't match Social Security records, the information is set
aside in what's called the Earnings Suspense File.

Created in 1937, the file contains about 255 million unmatched wage
reports representing $520 billion paid to workers but not credited to
their Social Security earnings records.

The incorrect worker files mushroomed during the 1990s as immigrants
poured into the United States. Almost half the inaccurate reports come
from industries such as agriculture, construction and restaurants.

"We believe the chief cause of [unmatched] wage items ... is
unauthorized work by noncitizens," Social Security Inspector General
Patrick O'Carroll told Congress in February.

The IRS also receives the mismatch information.

Particularly disturbing is that possibly millions of the Social
Security numbers belong to other people.

In Utah, after Social Security provided data for one criminal inquiry,
investigators discovered that the Social Security numbers of 2,000
children were being used by other people.

"What do you think we'd find if we had the ability to analyze all of
their information?" said Kirk Torgensen, Utah's chief deputy attorney
general. "It would be invaluable. How shortsighted is it that the
government doesn't follow this trail?"

Should we not DEMAND that the IRS and Social Security followup on the information they have? To detect and deport illegals? Yes, one at a time. It's a start. We have to take back our country!

The CBO-JCT report supports their contention. It estimates that the Hagel-Martinez bill in its first five years would increase direct spending on programs such as Food Stamps, Medicaid and the Earned Income Tax Credit by $8 billion, depress business tax payments by $5 billion, and authorize spending on new programs totaling another $16 billion. With a total price tag of $29 billion over five years, and $59 billion over its first decade, Sessions concluded the Senate’s leading reform plan “will be a drain on our programs that are designed to provide health care and assistance to American citizens.”
