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.

Fox News Executives and Bill O’Reilly should be arrested for conspiracy to commit murder and domestic terrorism

In the video below you will see Keith Olberman explain how Bill O’Reilly on 28 occasions practically beg people to commit murder and acts of terrorism. Bill O’Rielly is a good example of a form of conservatism that needs to be stamped out and will be. As President and CEO of Fox Rupert Murdoch should be held accountable.

Bill O’Reilly has to bear some of the responsibility. Like the Dr. or not O’Rielly mentioned the Dr. Tiller’s name 28 times on the air and basically taunted people to take action against him. There is a difference between free speech and hate speech. Free Speech does not mean you can yell fire in a crowded theater. Hitler had a propaganda minister that was sentenced to death by a allied military tribunal and he never personally laid hands on one person murdered by the regime. He only spread hate and lies about them. If you are against abortion then get the law changed, don’t murder people. If you work outside the law it kills your cause. According to the law and the Supreme Court abortion is legal now. It doesn’t mean the law is perfect or right, if the people have the will to change the law they will. The law will NOT be changed by murder or violence.

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.

NAACP Condemns New York Post President Obama Chimp Cartoon – Join The Fight Against Racism

chimp-2009-02-18-cartoon1

Here is a copy of the letter sent to the New York Post:

I am writing you today to let you know I will not tolerate racist images and caricatures in your newspaper. I ask you to take immediate action to renounce the racist cartoon published in your paper on Wednesday showing two police officers, one with a smoking gun, standing over the body of a bullet-riddled chimp. This blatant exhibit of racism, comparing our commander in chief (also featured signing the stimulus bill on the issue’s facing page) to a dead chimpanzee is unacceptable, given the historic racist stereotypes of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys. I strongly urge the immediate firing of the Editor-in-Chief and all those involved in the decision to print the image. I also demand that the New York Post publish a full, unequivocal apology for the misguided decision to print the cartoon.

Your publication sadly reminded me of the reality that even in 2009, when an African American man holds the highest post in the nation, racism is alive and well in the United States, and that we have a long way to go to ensure civil and human rights of all people. There is no room for this kind of insensitivity and divisiveness – they only distract us from the real work that we need to do to foster an era of change, collaboration, and acceptance of all people.

As a supporter of the NAACP, and as a citizen committed to ending racism and promoting civil rights for all people, I ask you to do better.

Anti Barack Obama attorney Philip J. Berg faces disciplinary complaint

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

INTERNET POWERHOUSE ANDY MARTIN ASKS PENNSYLVANIA SUPREME COURT DISCIPLINARY BOARD TO EXAMINE ATTORNEY PHILIP BERG’S PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT

(NEW YORK)(November 12, 2008) Andy Martin has asked the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board to investigate
the conduct of anti-Obama attorney Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, PA. “There have been a lot of questions, and criticism, swirling around Mr. Berg’s behavior,” Martin stated. “I thought his behavior merited a look by the Disciplinary Board. That way there can be a fair and impartial examination of his claims and actions.”

A copy of Martin’s Statement, which is part of Martin’s form complaint, (faxed to the DB today, November 12th) follows:

November 12, 2008

Philip J. Berg contacted me in mid-August about a complaint he proposed to file in federal court. He sent me the complaint to review, and I advised him the complaint was nonsense. He was suing the wrong parties in the wrong court for the wrong relief. Berg said he wanted to “enjoin the Democratic National Convention,” which caused me to question his sanity. He pleaded that Barack Obama was “born in Kenya” when there is not a shred of credible evidence to support this claim.

He filed his complaint and then began issuing a series of asinine news releases about the progress of his lawsuit.

Berg is playing on the vulnerability of people who intensely dislike President-elect Barack Obama, and using his inflated accusations to solicit money from the public. He constantly exaggerates or misrepresents the facts. In early September persons acting on his behalf claimed there was a “court order” for Obama to produce a birth certificate. No such order existed.

Then he claimed Obama was in “default” and had “admitted” he was born in Kenya. This was compete nonsense. As someone who is a genuine critic of Mr. Obama, I know firsthand what confusion Berg creates with his false and misleading claims. Most recently he or persons acting in concert with him have suggested that the U.S. Supreme Court “ordered” a response to his nonsense. The Court has done nothing of the sort. The court’s rules simply provide a thirty-day period for responses.

I don’t know whether Berg suffers from an emotional disturbance, or is merely a money-grubbing huckster, or what, but Berg’s behavior is undermining public faith in the integrity of the Pennsylvania legal profession.

Berg has been disciplined in the past for misconduct:

Lawyers are entitled to engage in vigorous advocacy. They are encouraged to extend and revise legal precedents. But they are not entitled to file delusional claims without a scintilla of support, particularly when they then use these delusional claims as a basis to solicit money from the public.

Mr. Berg has previously claimed that the U.S. Government blew up the World Trade Center, again without shred of evidence to support his nonsense.

He is a threat to vulnerable citizens who tend to believe his false claims and give him money on the false assumption that Berg is acting in good faith. By stealing small amounts of money from people across the nation he has flown under the radar of professional discipline. No competent attorney could have acted as Berg did during the past three months. His behavior in federal court, all of which is a public record, is outrageous.

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.”
