Help Save Maryland – More Vile Hate from Hispanic Caucus & Catholic Church


News From Help Save Maryland:

More noise from anti-American members of Congress. This time its Arizona Democrat, Congressman Raul Grijalva. Raul is a member of the radical Hispanic Caucus and a big-time supporter of Amnesty.

Raul has loyalty issues regarding American citizens and instead spends his days pushing for more illegal aliens to cross the border from Mexico. He is quite mad that his home state (well the state where he resides as his home state must be south of the border) is about to implement tough legislation to enforce the law against the mostly Hispanic illegal aliens in Arizona.

Raul wants businesses to Boycott Arizona, his own state, if Governor Brewer signs the legislation (SB 1070)into law! Boycott Arizona?? I can tell you this, my family will be vacationing in Arizona in 2010 if this is signed into law!

Please give Raul’s office in DC a call and remind Raul he took an oath of office to defend this country. He should represent the legal taxpaying voting citizens in AZ, not the huge illegal alien community. If he can’t, time to resign from office.

Please contact AZ Governor Jan Brewer and tell her to sign the anti-illegal immigration bill SB 1070 into law ASAP. Stopping the flow of illegals from Arizona will have a positive effect on Maryland’s growing gang and crime problem, and our education and social services overload caused by illegal aliens. The American people are counting on her!

Challenging Congressman Grijalva for the bone-head comments of the week is Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Los Angeles. Taking a break from abusing little boys, Catholic Church leaders are again calling any attempts to enforce the law against illegal aliens hateful. Cardinal Mahony calls the pending Arizona law encouraging " German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques" by Arizona citizens. I always love when the Catholic Church talks about Nazi tactics and hate. Cardinals always need to be reminded that in fact when the real Nazis were doing their thing across Europe, the Church leaders did little if anything to stop or hinder it. Guess they were busy doing "their thing" with their youngest parishioners.

Please contact Cardinal Mahony and tell him to stop his lawless, hateful, anti-citizen nonsense and stick to what he does best……..preaching and caring for the poor. Illegal aliens have broken the law and need to be returned to their native lands.

Arizonan: Boycott us over immigration bill

Stephen Dinan Washington Times

One Arizona congressman called for businesses to boycott his own state, and a Catholic cardinal said the state may be encouraging "German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques" as pushback against Arizona’s proposed crackdown on illegal immigrants went into high gear Tuesday.

The bill, which would make being an illegal immigrant a state offense and would make it illegal to knowingly transport or hide an illegal immigrant, has become the latest hot-button litmus test in the immigration issue, dividing members of Congress already sparring over whether to pass a bill legalizing illegal immigrants.

Republican Gov. Jan Brewer has not said whether she will sign the state measure into law, but U.S. Rep. Raul M. Grijalva, Arizona Democrat, said businesses should be prepared to retaliate with a boycott if she does.

"Do not do business with the state," Mr. Grijalva said at a press conference on the Capitol grounds in Washington, adding that a boycott would "give economic consequence to a very bad decision."

Mr. Grijalva said if Arizona is able to enact the law without facing consequences, other states will follow suit.

But his call for a boycott shocked Sen. Jon Kyl, Arizona Republican.

"That’s very helpful. An Arizona congressman calling for folks to boycott his home state?" Mr. Kyl said. "That’ll really help job creation. End of comment."

Mr. Kyl on Monday joined with seatmate Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to call for Mr. Obama to post 3,000 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, and both men also said they understand why legislators acted. They pointed to the killing of an Arizona rancher last month and to reports from sheriffs of escalating violence as evidence the border is not secure.

Immigrant rights groups have denounced the bill, saying it will lead to racial profiling and a climate of fear among Hispanics.

In a blog posted Sunday, Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop of the Los Angeles Archdiocese, said if the bill is signed it would become "the country’s most retrogressive, mean-spirited, and useless anti-immigrant law."

"I can’t imagine Arizonans now reverting to German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques whereby people are required to turn one another in to the authorities on any suspicion of documentation," he said, wondering if children would have to call the police on their parents.

Rep. Luis V. Guttierez, Illinois Democrat, said if the law is signed then President Obama must assert the primacy of federal law in this area and tell the state it cannot enforce it.

"We need to nationalize bad laws in particular states," he said. "The president of the United States should simply say, on issues of immigration, the Constitution is clear."

He said for the same reasons that states can’t issue their own immigration visas, they also should not be able to criminalize illegal immigration. He said Mr. Obama should call the governor and tell her to veto the law, and said the president could deny funds to the state as punishment if the law goes into effect.

An administration official said the White House is reviewing the Arizona bill.

ARIZONA’S DREADFUL ANTI-IMMIGRANT LAW Cardinal Mahony

The Arizona legislature just passed the country’s most retrogressive, mean-spirited, and useless anti-immigrant law [SB 1070, awaiting the expected signature of Gov. Jan Brewer]. The tragedy of the law is its totally flawed reasoning: that immigrants come to our country to rob, plunder, and consume public resources. That is not only false, the premise is nonsense.

What led the Arizona legislature to pass such a law is so obvious to all of us who have been working for federal comprehensive immigration reform: the present immigration system is completely incapable of balancing our nation’s need for labor and the supply of that labor. We have built a huge wall along our southern border, and have posted in effect two signs next to each other. One reads, "No Trespassing," and the other reads "Help Wanted." The ill-conceived Arizona law does nothing to balance our labor needs.

The law is wrongly assuming that Arizona residents, including local law enforcement personnel, will now shift their total attention to guessing which Latino-looking or foreign-looking person may or may not have proper documents. That’s also nonsense. American people are fair-minded and respectful. I can’t imagine Arizonans now reverting to German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques whereby people are required to turn one another in to the authorities on any suspicion of documentation. Are children supposed to call 911 because one parent does not have proper papers? Are family members and neighbors now supposed to spy on one another, create total distrust across neighborhoods and communities, and report people because of suspicions based upon appearance?

Various cities and states have tried such abhorrent tactics over the decades with absolutely no positive effect. Such laws have all been struck down by courts or repealed by wise citizens. Sadly, such laws lead to a new round of immigrant-bashing–usually in times of economic downturn.

Our highest priority today is to bring calm and reasoning to discussions about our immigrant brothers and sisters. We are a nation of immigrants, and their commitment and skills have created the finest country in the world. Let’s not allow fearful and ill-informed rhetoric to shape public policy. Let’s put a human face on our immigrant friends, and let’s listen to their stories and their desires to improve their own lives and the good of the nation.

Almost all of our immigrant families are "mixed," that is, some members have legal documents to be here and some members do not. Asking ordinary Americans and over-worked law enforcement officers to hunt down people of suspicious legal documentation is ludicrous and ineffective.

Let’s direct our energies where they need to be focused: passing a federal comprehensive immigration law which is forward-looking and which will help balance our need for adequate labor forces in the coming years. The Census Bureau reports that every day a minimum of 10,000 baby boomers retire. How are we going to provide the labor pool to fill all of these jobs in the coming years?

Our nation has no plan for our future labor needs. None.

As our economy begins to grow again, and as goods and services need to be provided and moved around the country, the need for motivated and eager employees will be of highest priority. Let’s put our focus on people and our future together, not on retrogressive tactics which have never worked before in our country’s history.

I have met so many of our immigrant families and I am in awe at their love for our country, their care and concern for their children, and their resourcefulness in helping to improve our communities, our way of life, and our economic future.

THEY HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!

Senators say ‘virtual fence’ along US-Mexico border not keeping out illegal immigrants

Associated Press
04/20/10 5:45 PM EDT

WASHINGTON — Two senators said Tuesday it’s time to consider ending a contract for a "virtual fence" along the U.S.-Mexico border, contending it doesn’t stop illegal immigration.

Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., even suggested an old-fashioned, real fence may work better than the electronic one designed by Boeing Co.

"We’re counting on you to give us a direct assessment and take action to either terminate the contract or take from it what may work," Lieberman told Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin.

Lieberman, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said at a hearing on border security: "The best answer to this continuing crisis and continued flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. is to go back to the old-style fences, double- and triple-tiered, and layered."

Sen. Roland Burris, D-Ill., asked Bersin whether the contract could be canceled. Bersin said he was not able to render a judgment on a legal issue.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in March that she was halting funding to expand the virtual fence that originally was supposed to monitor most of the 2,000-mile southern U.S. border by 2011. It now covers only a portion of Arizona’s boundary with Mexico.

The virtual fence is a network of cameras, ground sensors and radars designed to let a small number of dispatchers watch the border on a computer monitor, zoom in with cameras to see people crossing, and decide whether to send Border Patrol agents to the scene.

The fence was part of President George W. Bush’s security plan.

Bersin said that the contractor has been unable to integrate the system to allow central monitoring of the border.

"In the near term, the secretary (Napolitano) concluded the wholesale integration is not a goal that is practicable or would produce the kind of results we want to see," Bersin said.

After the shooting death of a rancher, Republican Sens. Jon Kyl and John McCain of Arizona asked Monday for National Guard troops to be deployed along Arizona’s border.

The request for 3,000 troops was part of a 10-point plan that includes hiring 3,000 more Customs and Border Protection agents for Arizona, building new fences and increasing aerial surveillance.
