Really? We hadn't noticed...

Those pushpins might as well be put in the shoes of the citizens of this state by our filthy politicians (excluding the politician who made this available of course) who allow this to happen.
My last ICE detainer list is from May 8, 2006 but it is pretty stunning to look at if you haven't seen one before.

I'm curious what increase in deportations we have enjoyed in the last few months.

Don't look for our news people to investigate that and report those facts anytime soon.

Heather Simpson said...

what do the larger push pins vs. the smaller represent? and what is the time span for these incarcerations?

You think that's "pretty stunning"? That's setting the bar pretty low for "pretty stunning." Check out this "pretty stunning."

Oh ... I'm sorry. You don't want to talk about that, do you?

Let me guess, it's Bush's fault?

Anonymous said...

No 6:17 AM -- Like a true conservative, Bush has to take no responsibility whatsoever and can in no way be held accountable for ANYTHING that has happened while he's been president. Clearly, only a fool would assume that he bears responsibility for what's happened in Iraq on his watch.

You know, Huse has a stainless steel device that might help you remove your head from where it's obviously stuck.

Anthony DeLucca said...

It only took until the third post before some jack-hole brings up the war. An entirely different subject than what the original post (and this blog for that matter) is about. While I certainly agree that the war is worth talking about, it has absolutely no bearing on this post.

Drunk Driving kills a ton of Americans and costs taxpayers billions every year, but that doesn't belong here either.

Why do some people find it so hard to stick to the topic at hand?

Now, to the topic at hand: These pushpins don't suprise me at all. Illegal immigration needs to be stopped at once before more victims are created by those who have no business being in this country to begin with. While I'm all for legal immigration, I believe that those who truly desire to come here for a better life, need to follow the rules, and once here, should learn the language. You cannot become successful in this country unless you know the language of commerce....and in the US, that language is english.

Scottiebill said...

Anthony, You're right as usual. In addition to your saying that the language of commerce here in the U.S is English, I'd like to add to that:
The Declaration of Independence was written in English, not Spanish. The Constitution was written in English, not Spanish. The Federalist Papers, the forerunner of the Constitution, was written in English, not Spanish. The Gettysburg Address was written and given in English, not Spanish.

I could go on, but I think my message is clear, even to the various and sundry Anonymouses who are against the illegals being deported, against the American way of life and culture being preserved instead of being given over to the hordes of illegals from other countries, against everything GWB and his administration has done or will do, and against the United States in general.

The AminoCLU and other anti-American groups across the world would be proud of them.

Rick Hickey said...

These numbers are just from State Prisons, not City or County Jails, of all ICE holds currently serving time.
Large pin represents 100 illegals.

Nationally we are wasting over $3 Million a day for illegals in Fed pens alone.

This was presented by two state Legislatures (R's of course, I guess D's don't care about preventable crimes)during the OFIR Press conference in regards to the Repsect for Law Act initiative.
Media told of new ballot but left out this part, hmmmm.


Operation Predator has now caught over 10,000 Child Molesters from foreign countries in America, with thousands to go. Over 1/2 are Illegally here.

Remember most Child molesters have done so at least 8 times before being caught. Is that at least 80,000 kids have or are still suffering from the effects of this invasion?

Yes I know, as the Media and D's say "This is a complicated issue" "We need these workers" "Doing jobs even Blacks won't do"(Pres. Fox) "This issue is lead by bigots and racists"

Because preventable Murder & Rape are so complicated an issue to resolve, NOT.

Cost of ILLEGAL Aliens in America, U.R.L.'s included, to prove to you liars, using only low estimates from current Gov't data, not Liberal "feelings";

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens
each year.

2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs
such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school
education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the
American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare &
social services by the American taxpayers.

9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused
by the illegal aliens.

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's
two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular,
their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in
the US

11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens
that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal
aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine,
meth, heroine and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern
border. Homeland Security Report:

12. The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total cost of
mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average
cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period."

13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back
to their countries of origin.

14. "The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex
Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States ".

The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR

Are we THAT stupid???

Why do any of you think adding over 3 million a year to our poulation is good?
They do not count Illegal aliens either, so add another 3-5 Million in 2007 that need a home, water, gas, electricty, food, medical care, etc.
Again mostly due to Immigration per the U.S. Census Bureau;

Census Bureau Projects Population of 303.1 Million
As our nation prepares to ring in the new year, the U.S. Census Bureau today projected the Jan. 1, 2008, population will be 303,146,284 -- up 2,842,103 or 0.9 percent from New Year’s Day 2007.

In January, the United States is expected to register one birth every eight seconds and one death every 11 seconds.

Meanwhile, net international migration is expected to add one person every 30 seconds. The result is an increase in the total U.S. population of one person every 13 seconds.

Broken Record: Lou Dobbs' daily 'Broken Borders' CNN segment has focused on immigration for years. But there's one issue Dobbs just won't take on.

By Heidi Beirich and Mark Potok

Lou Dobbs is a genial sort, a pleasant-faced CNN anchorman who regularly presents himself as standing up for American working men and women against those who would injure them. Hosting "Lou Dobbs Tonight" for a prime-time hour every weekday, he is also well known and powerful. So when Dobbs focuses on an issue, millions of Americans learn just what it is that Dobbs thinks they should know.
For more than two years now, Dobbs has served up a populist approach to immigration on nightly segments of his newscast entitled "Broken Borders." He has relentlessly covered the issue, although hardly from a traditional news perspective -- Dobbs favors clamping down on illegal immigration, and his "reporting" never fails to make that clear. He has covered the same issues, and the same anti-immigration leaders, time after time after time. In recent months, Dobbs has run countless upbeat reports on the "citizen border patrols" that have sprung up around the country since last April's Minuteman Project, a paramilitary effort to seal the Arizona border.

But there's one thing Lou Dobbs won't do. No matter what others report about the movement, Dobbs has failed to present mounting and persistent evidence of anti-Hispanic racism in anti-immigration groups and citizen border patrols.

It's not that Dobbs hasn't allowed a pro-immigration activist or two to complain about efforts like the Minuteman Project ("vigilantes," according to President Bush), or even that he has made racist statements on his show. What the anchorman has done is repeatedly decline to present the evidence that links these groups to racism, calling the very idea "mind-boggling." On his July 29 show, he called the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center, which he said he liked in other ways, "despicable" and "reprehensible" for saying otherwise.

Consider some of what Dobbs has failed to report, despite the fact that in almost every case these developments were reported widely elsewhere:

GLENN SPENCER, head of the anti-immigration American Patrol, has been interviewed at least twice on the show, on Jan. 7 and June 4, 2004. Spencer's Web site is jammed with anti-Mexican vitriol and he pushes the idea that the Mexican government is involved in a secret plot to take over the Southwest -- facts never mentioned on Dobbs' show. Spencer's group is regarded as a hate group by both the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. Spencer has spoken at least twice to the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, which has described blacks as "a retrograde species of humanity," and once to American Renaissance, a group that contends that blacks are genetically inferior to whites. Dobbs has never reported those ties, or mentioned Spencer's more wild-eyed contentions, such as his prediction that "thousands will die" in a supposedly forthcoming Mexican invasion. His CNN colleague Wolf Blitzer, on the hand, featured Spencer on his own show but reported Mexico's official response and SPLC's hate group designation.

In late 2004, it was revealed that the new head of a national advisory board to Protect Arizona Now, an anti-immigration organization, was a long-time white supremacist who was also an editorial adviser to the racist Council of Conservative Citizens. Although VIRGINIA ABERNETHY's controversial selection was reported prominently in virtually every Arizona paper -- and despite the fact that Dobbs heavily covered the anti-immigration referendum that Protect Arizona Now was advocating -- Dobbs never mentioned the affair at all.

A man named JOE MCCUTCHEN was quoted last April as part of a feature on the Minuteman Project, described by Dobbs as "a terrific group of concerned, caring Americans." No mention was made of the fact that McCutchen, who heads up an anti-immigration group called Protect Arkansas Now, had written a whole series of anti-Semitic letters to the editor and given a speech to the Council of Conservative Citizens -- facts revealed the prior January by SPLC, causing Arkansas' Republican governor to denounce McCutchen's group.

This August, BILL PARMLEY, a Minuteman leader in Goliad County, Texas, quit the group because of what he described as widespread racism. Similarly, in September, newspapers reported that another Texas Minuteman, Janet Ahrens, had resigned because members "wanted to shoot the taco meat." Dobbs never mentioned either of these people, who were featured prominently elsewhere.

On Oct. 4, Dobbs had PAUL STREITZ, a co-founder of Connecticut Citizens for Immigration Control, as a guest on his show. Streitz denounced Mayor John DeStefano Jr. for "turning New Haven into a banana republic" by favoring identification cards for undocumented workers. Two days later, newspapers revealed that two of the group's other founders had just quit, saying Streitz had led it in a racially charged direction. Dobbs has never reported this.

BARBARA COE, leader of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform, was quoted on a show last March bitterly attacking Home Depot for "betray[ing] Americans," apparently because Hispanic day laborers often gather in front of the store looking for work. Not mentioned were her group, listed by the SPLC as a hate group, or the fact that she routinely refers to Mexicans as "savages." Coe recently described herself as a member of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a "white pride" group formed from the remnants of the segregationist White Citizens Councils of the 1950s and 1960s that were once described by Thurgood Marshal as "the uptown Klan." She also told The Denver Post in November that she had given a speech to the group.

CHRIS SIMCOX, co-founder of the Minuteman Project and a top national anti-immigration leader, was arrested in 2003 by federal park rangers for carrying a weapon illegally while tracking border-crossers on federal parkland. While Simcox has been repeatedly interviewed on his show, Dobbs has failed to mention that arrest or bigoted anti-Hispanic comments Simcox made to the Intelligence Report several years ago.
Although Dobbs has steered clear of the racist comments that some of his guests have made elsewhere, he has warned of "illegal aliens who not only threaten our economy and security, but also our health and well-being," according to Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), a media monitor. In 2003, FAIR added, a reporter on Dobbs' show grossly mischaracterized a National Academy of Sciences report. The report found that immigrants provided a net gain of $1 billion to $10 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product, but the CNN reporter said the report had found the economic impact of immigrants worked out to a net loss of up to $10 billion.

Dobbs is revered in anti-immigration quarters and on the far right generally. He is the winner of the 2004 Eugene Katz Award for Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration, given by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). CIS claims to be a "nonpartisan research institute," but in fact is a thinly disguised anti-immigration organization. The 2005 Katz Award went to the immigration beat reporter for The Washington Times, a hard-right newspaper based in Washington, D.C.

In general, Lou Dobbs has declined to report salient negative facts about anti-immigration leaders he approves of, or simply avoided mentioning certain of their views -- notably the conspiracy theories propounded by people like Spencer.

Still, Dobbs is hardly immune to the lure of the weird. Last September, he offered up Idaho meteorologist Scott Stevens as a guest on his show. Stevens had just left an Idaho television news program immediately after telling viewers of a bizarre theory that Hurricane Katrina was caused by unknown evildoers. "Terrorists were engaging in a type of eco-terrorism where they could alter the climate, set off earthquakes and volcanoes," he told Dobbs. Stevens said they were using "scalar waves," invented by the Japanese, to attack America with Category 5 storms.

"Intriguing assertion," Dobbs concluded at the end of the interview. Much the same might be said, and in the same spirit, about the news "reporting" that Dobbs presents as he doggedly explores and supports the anti-immigration movement.

when a report lies and says anti-immigrant not anti-illegal, I know it is the lefty Liberal bs machine and do not read any more.

Did this mention that Dobbs wife is Hispanic?

"It's not that Dobbs hasn't allowed a pro-immigration activist or two to complain about efforts like the Minuteman Project ("vigilantes," according to President Bush), or even that he has made racist statements on his show."

If that's the truth, Why don't Beirich and Potok give us some examples of racist statements Dobbs has made? Umm ... because it's NOT the truth.

Here's the transcripts page for Lou Dobbs Tonight. Find me a racist statement.

You can search the transcripts for Lou Dobbs Tonight using Google.

Find me a racist statement or admit that Beirich and Potok are damn liars.

Calhoun said...

Actually I guess you can't search Lou Dobbs Tonight transcripts with the Google link I gave there.

But you can search all CNN transcripts using Google with this link.

Racists are an interesting breed: They are oblivious to what they are. They really don't believe they are racist. Fascinating.

Scottiebill said...

Anon 4:16: Just so you know, I am not a racist. I do not want illegal aliens in this country, whether they be Hispanic, Canadian, Ukranian, Russian, Syrian, Iraqi, Irani, or whatever. They do not belong here and they have to go, by what ever means, on their own, deportation, and even feet first.
I am not a racist. I am a WAASP (white agnostic, anglo-saxon protestant). I have a black son-in-law who is one of the finest men I have ever met.

That does not make me racist. That makes me anti-illegal alien, regardless of what race, ethnicity, or religion, or whatever they are .

As for you, Anon 4:16, if I knew who you are, you would not EVER be welcome in my home. And I don't care if you are white, black, brown, red, green, or purple.

Anyone who reads anything from the Southern Poverty Law Center needs to have their genitals removed forcibly, and their brains lobotomized.

People who follow the SPLC are lower than scum, and deserve nothing more than to be shot in the head and skullfucked.

curious george said...

I am intrigued by this particular Miglavian's proposal ...

Sir, let me make sure I understand you correctly: You are suggesting that those who read material you disagree with should be mutilated, murdered and then have their corpse abused, correct?

A clarification: Are you proposing that this be done by some government agency, or would you rely on a vigilante-based system to carry out this policy?

Also, is there any other reading material that would be covered by this policy?


Anonymous said...

...and then they wonder why anti-immigration folk get a bad rap. With gems like hostile representing them, at least they get a taste of their own medicine -a taste of what it feels like to be a Hispanic in America: The many judged by the actions of a few.

Anyone who doesn't approve of the SPLC should be fed inch by inch very slowly into a wood chipper and then set on fire. Racists who hate the undocumented are evil and don't deserve to breathe the same air as we human beings.

Bobkatt said...

Of course with no verification of the identity of "hostile" it's impossible to know which side of the debate they are really on. Often the most vile posts are just posted to discredit one side or the other or to get a rise. Best to just ignore them all together.

Yeah, it would be so much more meaningful if he had "verified" himself by signing a real name ... like "Bobkatt," for example.

It is so easy, even if incorrect, to just call one who objects to illegals being catered to as 'immigrants' a racist. It just demonstrates the ignorance and hatred of those who do.
