News of Import 8-15-2013

Lead-in to News of Import:


Veritas Odium Parit (Truth begets hate) For many reasons, there are those that are for amnesty or against it.

The Media’s Double Standard

Some hate crimes are less hateful than others.

Top Reasons Why S. 744 is a bad idea

1.       Does not require any additional border fencing or the completion of our current border fencing requirements.  Only requires DHS to submit to Congress a strategy of recommendations for additional necessary fencing.

2.       Does not end the abuse of prosecutorial discretion by DHS and the administration.  It directs immigration agents to release illegal aliens deemed low priority.

3.       Authorizes DHS to waive unlawful behavior when determining admissibility of undocumented immigrants, including:  gang membership, three or more DUIs, domestic violence, child abuse, crimes of moral turpitude, drug law violations, passport trafficking, providing fraudulent immigration services, prostitution, visa violations, and all other violations not specifically listed in the bill.

4.       Allows DHS to grant legal status in 6 months, prior to any measures to secure the border.

5.       Voids state and local E-verify laws.

6.       Prohibits immigration enforcement actions in 'sensitive areas' including: hospitals, schools, churches, and certain organizations.

7.       Does not provide for punishment of undocumented immigrants who make false statements in a registered provisional immigrant application.  Yet it creates criminal penalties and a fine up to $10,000 for federal official who discloses information found on an application.

8.       Does not require the deportation of a single undocumented immigrant.  DHS is not explicitly required to deport an immigrant whose RPI application is denied.

9.       Allows Secretary of DHS to exercise discretion to waive a ground of inadmissibility or deportability if the Secretary deems it to be against the public interest or a hardship to the family of the deportable individual.

10.   Allows undocumented immigrants to bring class action lawsuits against the government for denial of RPI status.

11.   Requires DHS to waive the public charge law when determining which immigrants are eligible for legal status.

12.   Excludes three-time DUI offenders from a path to citizenship, but two-time drunk drivers would be acceptable.

13.  Requires that passport forgers would no longer be prosecuted for making a single fake travel document, with the bar being set at three.

14.  Requires that document counterfeiters whose materials are used to obtain passports would only be jailed if they contributed to at least 10 phony passports.

Pork spending in the Senate immigration bill S.744

Ø  $300 Million for La Raza and other liberal immigrants' rights groups, which the federal government would contract to assist future U.S. citizens with applications and offer them legal advice.

Ø  Schumer (NY). As introduced, S. 744 carves-out 10,500 visas annually for unskilled Irish workers under a new E-3 nonimmigrant visa program. NY has a large Irish population(Sec. 4403, p. 974)

Ø  Graham (SC). As introduced, S. 744 guarantees the meat packing industry-under the animal production subsectors classification-an additional 10% percent allocation of W-nonagricultural visas on top of the yearly cap and exempts this guarantee from any future reduction in visas. The meat packing industry is one of the largest industries in South Carolina. (Sec. 4703(h), p. 1085)

Ø  Leahy (VT) and Bennet (CO). As introduced, S. 744 allows ski and snowboard instructors to enter the U.S. under the 5-year nonimmigrant visa program professional athletes and performing artists use rather than the 10-month nonimmigrant visa program for seasonal workers under current law. (Sec. 4601, p. 1027)

Ø  Rubio (FL). As introduced, S. 744 creates a new nonimmigrant Z visa to admit individuals who possess "specialized knowledge" to perform maintenance on airlines and cruise ships. (Sec. 4606, p. 1034) S. 744 also creates a two year grant program for individuals living along the Southern border "at greater risk of border violence" to purchase satellite telephones that can access 9-1-1 and are GPS equipped. (Sec. 1107, p. 83) TracPhone, a Florida-based company, makes these phones and S. 744 appropriates "such sums as may be necessary" to fund the grant program.

Ø  Murkowski (AK) and Begich (AK).  This carve-out to secure the votes of Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski (R) and Mark Begich (D) classifies seafood processing positions in Alaska as "shortage occupations," thus allowing the industry to bring in more cheap foreign labor to do those jobs. (Sec. 4701(d)(4), p. 1043) It also allows employers to bring in non-immigrants under a summer program to work in seafood processing positions. (Sec. 4408, p. 982)

Ø  Collins (ME) and Tester (MT). This carve-out for Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jon Tester (D-MT) eliminates a requirement that at least 90% of funding for a law-enforcement program along U.S. borders be devoted to the southwest border, freeing up more money for Northern border states. (Sec. 1104, p. 73)

Ø  Sanders (VT). This carve-out for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) creates a slush "Youth Jobs Fund" for FY 2014-2015 using $1.5 billion from the U.S. Treasury.  Until the kickback, Sen. Sanders was an outspoken critic of the bill for taking jobs away from Americans. He has since been silent. (Title V, p. 1169)

Ø  Kirk (IL). This carve-out to gain Sen. Mark Kirk's (R-IL) support allows a person who has served in the military and received an honorable discharge and certain combat medals to become a citizen without meeting key naturalization criteria under current law. This includes waiving the requirement an alien understand the English language, waiving the requirement the alien has knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of the history and of the principles and form of the U.S. government, and waiving the requirement an alien is of good moral character. (Sec. 2555, p. 502)

Ø  Heller (NV). Tucked away in the Corker-Hoeven ("Border Surge") amendment is a kickback for Las Vegas hotel and casino chains. The provision at hand permanently authorizes $100,000,000 in annual funding to certain parts of the country to promote tourism under the Travel Promotion Fund, posing a win for Nevada Senators Dean Heller and Harry Reid. (Sec. 1102(f), p. 66)

Ø  Hatch (UT). In addition to the H-1B deal Sen. Hatch brokered during committee negotiations, Sen. Hatch got another carve-out on the Senate floor.  In the massive Corker-Hoeven amendment was language by Sen. Hatch that would preclude Social Security credits for unauthorized work. However, like so many other provisions in the bill, Hatch's includes an exception that swallows the rule by allowing an alien to merely attest that he or she was authorized to work, opening the door for fraud and handouts. (Sec. 2107(d), p. 218)

Ø  Schumer (NY). Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) obtained a carve-out to allow public universities to fire U.S. workers and replace them with H-1B nonimmigrants. (Sec. 4211(d), p. 918) The deal also exempts nonprofit education and research institutions from the higher fees and stricter requirements imposed on employers that heavily rely on H-1B workers. (Sec. 4211(f), p. 919)

Ø  Leahy (VT).  Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) obtained a carve-out to grant special treatment to Hollywood by waiving fees for artist O and P visas if applications are not processed within 14 days. (Sec. 4416, p. 995)

A new provision in Obamacare will allow government forces to carry out forced home inspections.

According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted.

The Health and Human Services’ website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the “high-risk” categories below:

        ** Families where mom is not yet 21.
        ** Families where someone is a tobacco user.
        ** Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.
        ** Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.

    There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be “eligible.” In 2011, the HHS announced $224 million will be given to support evidence-based home visiting programs to “help parents and children.”

In 2011, the HHS announced $224 million will be given to support evidence-based home visiting programs to “help parents and children.” Individuals from the state will implement these leveraging strategies to “enhance program sustainability.” Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states, “This is not a “voluntary” program. The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks. A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to “intervention” in “school readiness” and “social-emotional developmental indicators.” A farm family may be subject to “intervention” in order to “prevent child injuries.” The sky is the limit. Although the Obama administration would claim the provision applies only to Medicaid families, the new statute, by its own definition, has no such limitation. Intervention may be with any family for any reason. It may also result in the child or children being required to go to certain schools or taking certain medications and vaccines and even having more limited – or no – interaction with parents. The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.” Part of the program will require massive data collecting of private information including all sources of income and the amount gathered from each source. A manual called Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention includes firearms as potential safety hazard and will require inspectors to verify safety compliance and record each inspection into a database. Last session South Carolina Rep. Bill Chumley introduced a bill, H.3101 that would nullify certain provisions of Obamacare. The bill would give the state attorney general the authority to authorize law enforcement to arrest federal agents for trespassing. It would make forced home inspections under Obamacare illegal in South Carolina. It passed in the House but died in the senate. Kent

Brown and Rep. Rick Quinn discuss “forced” home inspections under Obamacare in the video below.

The Gipper

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
