The Simple Solution to the Illegal Immigration Problem


The illegal immigration problem has been a prime issue the conservatives rail against. The conservative movement has used this issue to ignite a wave of hate against the hispanic community and instill fear in the america public. They are proponents of spending hundreds of millions of dollars to build higher and longer walls and increase the number of agents on the US-Mexico border. The conservatives are also proponents of maintaining the status quo when it comes to the companies and corporations that hire these illegal immigrants.
The penalty for hiring illegal immigrants is minor compared to the harsh treatment of an immigrant often ripped from his family and jailed awaiting a hearing and deportation. Deporting the estimated 10 million plus illegal immigrants is unrealistic

The current penalties are as follows:

There are civil and criminal penalties for hiring illegal aliens. Sec. 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and 8 U.S.C. 1324a, makes it unlawful for any person knowingly to hire, recruit or refer for a fee any alien not authorized to work. An employer that violates these laws can face penalties of:

· $250 to $2,000 fine for each unauthorized individual;

· $2,000 to $5,000 for each employee if the employer has previously been in violation; or

· $3,000 to $10,000 for each individual if the employer was subject to more than one cease and desist order.

The employer could also be fined $100 to $1,000 for each individual “paperwork” violation.

The criminal penalties for a pattern and practice violation can be up to $3,000 for each unauthorized alien, imprisonment up to six months, or both.

A recent study found this:

A new study by Rajeev Goyle and David A. Jaeger for the Center for American Progress in Washington calculates the cost of mass deportation to be at least $206 billion over five years. The annual cost of $41 billion would exceed the entire budget of the Department of Homeland Security ($34.2 billion) and would be more than double the annual spending on border and transportation security ($19.3 billion).

The only way to stem the tide of illegal immigration is to make the penalties to employers so repugnant that they will go to great lengths to make sure they are hiring properly documented workers. If there are no jobs available for illegal immigrants than they won’t have a reason to cross the border.

I suggest we stop the focus on the immigrant and place it on the employers that hire them. Here are some penalty suggestions to stem the tide of illegal immigration:

$5,000 and 6 months mandatory jail time on the first conviction. ( Business principal or CEO would serve the time )

$10,000 and 3 years mandatory prison time and forfeiture of business property and equipment on the second conviction. ( Business principal or CEO would serve the time )

$250,000 and 15 years mandatory prison time and forfeiture of business property and equipment on the third conviction. ( Business principal or CEO would serve the time )

This would also have the added benefit of creating jobs for US Citizens and increasing tax revenue and lowering the deficit. The problem is, you won’t see a conservative touting a measure that would actually stem the tide of illegal workers. It would cut into the profits of the companies and corporations that support them. They would rather just hurl hate and lies and make you fear a minority rather than solve the problem they rail against.

WBT-1110 and Tara Servatius Spreading More Hate and Lies About the Muslim Community

Today, I listened to Tara go on and on about the Mosque “AT” ground Zero. But as usual she wasn’t telling truth. There is NO Mosque at Ground Zero. And if you read below you will find out the truth about what many sick people have been trying to perpetrate against the American people. I don’t think it serves in the best interest of the community to allow someone with Tara’s extremist views to represent Charlotte. She has an agenda of hate against the poor, black people, gay people, immigrants and Muslims. Tara calls herself a journalist but often blatantly lies to promote her brand of hate. Tara’s so-called Mosque is a community center and it is NOT at the Ground Zero site as she would have you believe. Sadly enough I have made staff at WBT-1110 aware of this and they don’t seem to care. Tara Servatius and WBT-1110 are guilty of inciting hatred against people they don’t even know. Below is the truth about the location of what she calls the Mosque “AT” Ground Zero.

From the Huffington Post:

From 45 Park Place, the former Burlington Coat Factory building that will make way for the Cordoba House, it’s two blocks, around a corner, to get to the WTC site. Park Place doesn’t lie between the construction site and any mass transit stations, so you would need to go out of your way to have it offend you.

If you look up the walking directions you’ll notice that it takes a couple of minutes to walk the distance (approximately a tenth of a mile) between the two spots. Pretty much two minutes exactly when I took the trip with a shaky video camera.

When the new World Trade Center rises, you’ll be able to see it from 45 Park Place, because it’ll be by far the tallest thing around. The planned Cordoba House will be dwarfed. It certainly won’t overlook or overshadow Ground Zero.

Why is the distance between the two sites so important? Simple accuracy, for one. It’s frustrating to see so many commentators blithely disregard an obvious, physical problem with the “mosque at Ground Zero” formulation: it’s not at Ground Zero.

Clyde Haberman of the New York Times further explains the significance:

There’s that “at.” For a two-letter word, it packs quite a wallop. It has been tossed around in a manner both cavalier and disingenuous, with an intention by some to inflame passions. Nobody, regardless of political leanings, would tolerate a mosque at ground zero. “Near” is not the same, as anyone who paid attention back in the fourth grade should know.

I understand the journalist’s impulse to use the “Ground Zero Mosque” shorthand to instantly remind readers why they should care about the story. Headlines leave out qualifiers like “near” all the time for brevity’s sake. But in this case the elision is critical; leaving out the “near” clearly takes sides — against the “mosque” and against accuracy.

In addition, the building planned for 45 Park Place is a cultural center with a prayer room — not a single-purpose house of worship for Muslims, which is probably what we should reserve the word “mosque” for. As Haberman also explains, “That it may even be called a mosque is debatable. It is designed as a multi-use complex with a space set aside for prayer — no minarets, no muezzin calls to prayer blaring onto Park Place.”

The 92nd Street Y, on which the Cordoba House is explicitly modeled, has a whole host of Jewish events take place inside of it, but no one calls it a synagogue. There’s no good reason why Cordoba House should be misleadingly called a “mosque.” I’ve been guilty of using this word too, in conversation and in writing, but it’s inaccurate. Muslims already read the Quran and pray at 45 Park Place, but that does not and will not turn it into a “mosque.”

There’s one more catch for the opponents of the so-called Ground Zero mosque: by the same logical leap you can call the Cordoba Center a “mosque,” you can also call Ground Zero as it already exists a giant, open-air mosque. Muslim prayers are already taking place right on the edge of the construction site, and not for world domination. Families are going there to pray — for the souls of the dozens of innocent Muslim victims who died on September 11.

Rush Limbaugh : Vietnam War Draft Dodger

I often refer to Rush Limbaugh as a 3 times divorced, draft dodger, drug addict and conservative leader. I thought would give an explanation on why I beleive Rush Limbaugh is a draft  Dodger. Draft  dodging is avoiding military service during time of war, or as I see it, not doing your duty when you’re country calls. This subject is near and dear to me because my grandfather served in WWII in the US  Army and was  wounded fighting the Japanese. My father also did 4 combat tours in Vietnam in the Marines and barely left with his life at a place called Khe Sahn. I am also a vet and did my time in the  US Army during the first Gulf War.

What was the All-American Patriot Rush Limbaugh doing during the Vietnam War ? From the evidence, it seems as if  he was trying to find a way to get out of duty in Vietnam. Rush sought and  received a  college deferment and when he lost that he got a medical deferment for service from a private doctor. I guess it didn’t hurt either that Rush Limbaugh came from a rich prominent family of  lawyers and  politicians.

58,148 service members died in Vietnam. 17,725 were draftees. I’m sure there were many of these service members that didn’t want to be there. I don’t think they planned on dying either. I hope Rush  Limbaugh and the people that consider him some kind of  Patriot realize what he truly is. Freedom isn’t free and when Rush avoided being drafted, he may have allowed another man to go and make the  sacrifice for freedom in his place. I would consider that cowardly in the least.

Tara Servatius Takes Hate To A New Level At WBT-1110 Radio

original_image
Once again Tara Servatius and WBT-1110 Hate Radio have reached a new low. Tara Servatius and the Klan over at WBT are trying to claim that the reason the Republicans lost the mayors race and now lag behind on the city council 8 to 3 is because black people are racists. It couldn’t simply be because the Democrats were much more organized and that the Republicans didn’t turn out. During her shows on Wednesday and Thursday she used the words black and white approximately 50 times. She had the audacity to try and say that ALL of the Black Voters in Charlotte are racists because they didn’t vote for a White Republican. Tara went to a private school and went to an expensive college and got an expensive journalism degree but obviously she didn’t learn much. Maybe its time she get an education about what happens when you spread hate and lies about people you know little about. She is a sad individual and doesn’t represent our fine city. I have been listening to WBT for over 12 years and have never heard a more repulsive racist rampage as I heard in the past 2 days. It is time to rethink a strategy against this type of broadcasting and it is definitely time for WBT-1110 to go. WBT-1110 has worn out its welcome in Charlotte. It is time to move on and stamp out racism once and for all in Charlotte. It will take all of us working together, but it can be done.

Republicans Lose ANOTHER House Seat : The Republitards Just Don’t Get It

The Republicans lost another house seat by a narrow margin. New York’s 20th District goes to a Democrat after a special election for a vacated seat. 4 years ago this was a Republican stronghold. This is just another sign that the Republican Party is out of touch with mainstream Americans. While the Democrats have been offering solutions, the Republicans have been offering nothing but divisive and hateful commentary. They’re staunch support of corporations and jobs being sent overseas does not ring well with everyday America. With the gap between rich and poor widening, the Republicans are clearly out of step with the working family. They oppose every plan that might help the downtrodden and support every corporate welfare plan that comes down the pike. When you have leaders like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Rielly you get what you pay for. You make your bed, you sleep in it.

Any Questions About The Barack Obama Birth Certificate ? Please Get A Life.

Haiwaii State officials say there’s no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

“Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Friday she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate.”

“Fukino says that no state official, including Republican Gov. Linda Lingle, ever instructed that Obama’s certificate be handled differently.”

“She says state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.”

Some Obama critics supported by Members of the Ayran Nations and The Ku Klux Klan still claim these documents are not good enough to prove his citizenship.

“Earlier Friday, a southwest Ohio magistrate rejected a challenge to Obama’s citizenship. Judges in Seattle and Philadelphia recently dismissed similar suits.”

US Secret Service Blames Sarah Palin for Death Threats Against President Elect Obama

According to an article in the conservative paper the London Telegraph, Sarah Palin’s hateful rhetoric is being blamed for a huge increase in the number of death threats against the president elect.

“The Secret Service warned the Obama family in mid October that they had seen a dramatic increase in the number of threats against the Democratic candidate, coinciding with Mrs Palin’s attacks.”

There have been two assassination attempts broken up and various death threats, the majority being in the white supremacist community.

“Details of the spike in threats to Mr Obama come as a report last week by security and intelligence analysts Stratfor, warned that he is a high risk target for racist gunmen. It concluded: “Two plots to assassinate Obama were broken up during the campaign season, and several more remain under investigation. We would expect federal authorities to uncover many more plots to attack the president that have been hatched by white supremacist ideologues.”

Many believe this may have caused permanent damage to Sarah Palin’s reputation and may hurt any future attempts at a political run.

“Irate John McCain aides, who blame Mrs Palin for losing the election, claim Mrs Palin took it upon herself to question Mr Obama’s patriotism, before the line of attack had been cleared by Mr McCain.”
