share save 120 16 Arnold Schwarzenegger Watch:  An Immigrant Writes

arnoldapr10web1kk Arnold Schwarzenegger Watch:  An Immigrant Writes

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger shakes the hand of 6-year-old Eric Sarabia after touring small businesses in the Plaza Mexico shopping center Friday, March 31, 2006, in Lynwood, Calif. Schwarzenegger participated in a roundtable hosted by the California Mexican American Chamber of Commerece to discuss how the state can help small businesses.

Wall Street Journal: An Immigrant Writes

President Reagan memorably described his “shining city on a hill” as a place that “hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.” Perhaps because he’d been a border state governor, Reagan understood the challenges and the opportunities presented by immigration. He believed, as I do, that we can have an immigration policy that both strengthens our borders and welcomes immigrants.

Immigration is not just a theory debated on talk shows and on Capitol Hill; in California, it’s a reality that we live with every day in our schools, hospitals and workplaces. When Congress returns from its Easter recess, it must immediately address immigration reform again. I urge Congress to remember that immigrants are good people; but our current immigration system is bad policy. We need a new law.

But, not the type of law that a pandering Hispanic vote seeker and “open border” Schwarzenegger desires.

Lou Dobbs at CNN has First, secure our borders

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today called our current immigration system “bad policy” in a Wall Street Journal editorial.

Shamelessly pandering to the readership of the Wall Street Journal editorial pages, Gov. Schwarzenegger invokes Ronald Reagan’s name to declare that we can have immigration policies that both strengthen our borders and welcomes immigrants.

No, Governor, we can’t. National security requires that we control our borders and our ports. So does a rational, humane and effective immigration policy. Both flow from secure borders.
I repeat, Governor, until we first secure our borders, you can do nothing to resolve our illegal immigration crisis.

Middle-class working men and women in your state and around the nation are paying the price, while illegal employers are enjoying the benefits and profits of illegal immigration.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has become a PANDERING POLITICO and is part of the problem and not part of any solution.

This piece in the Wall Street Journal is another reason why many California Republicans will stay away from the polls in November 2006.

share save 120 16 Illegal Immigration Watch: Democrat Party Recruiting at Illegal Immigration Protests

126521659 4f9a64858a o Illegal Immigration Watch: Democrat Party Recruiting at Illegal Immigration Protests

A flyer from yesterday’s Texas immigration rally.

WizBang: Democrats Recruiting at Illegal Immigrant Protests

A number of photos were taken at yesterday’s Dallas illegal immigrant protest, including this one of a Democrat recruitment flyer encouraging Mexican immigrants to vote for Democrats in 2006.

The fact that the Dems are recruiting at these protests isn’t a surprise. It fits into their big picture of race and politics (which is why the flyer’s visual puts Texas and Mexico together). The Democrats classify people based upon race and then work to corner the racial voting collectives. At this point, the white vote is already split down the middle, half voting Democrat, half Republican. The Dems have cornered the black voting collective with over 90% voting Democratic. If Democrats manage to corner the Hispanic vote like they have cornered the black vote, Republicans won’t win the White House for a very long time. This is the Democrats’ dream, so they are trying very hard to collectivize the Hispanic community by turning the immigration issue into another civil rights issue.

Immigrants who come from south of the border usually don’t see themselves as a part of a collective. They tend to be more individual-minded, which works to the Republicans’ benefit. However, these rallies and protests are helping reshape how these immigrants view themselves. As Power Line points out, one of the organizers of these rallies is A.N.S.W.E.R., a communist organization.

Why, of course, and that is why the Democrats are supporting the McCain-Kennedy illegal alien amnesty bill in the United States Senate. If Lindsey Graham, Arlen Specter and Mike Dewine had the balls, this travesty of legislation would never have made it out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

First, grant amnesty and then recruit a solid block of Hispanic voters to vote for your party’s candidates like the African American block that vote with the Democrats 90 per cent of the time. It doesn’t take a genius to run these numbers.

Michelle Malkin has ILLEGAL ALIEN VOTER RECRUITMENT

Sen. Ted Kennedy is scheduled to address the crowd–future constituents–in Washington, D.C., today around 4:30pm EST.

As they say: “Today they march, tomorrow they vote.”

share save 120 16 Iran Nuclear Watch: Ahmadinejad   Iran Wont Back Down ONE IOTA in Nuclear FLAP

irannukeapr10cweb6oz Iran Nuclear Watch: Ahmadinejad   Iran Wont Back Down ONE IOTA in Nuclear FLAP

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gestures during his public meeting in the holy city of Mashhad, 950 kilometres northeast of Tehran. Ahmadinejad has vowed he would not back down “one iota” over Iran’s nuclear programme, again rejecting a UN Security Council demand for Tehran to freeze sensitive enrichment work.

AFP: Iran won’t back down ‘one iota’ in nuclear dispute: Ahmadinejad

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has vowed he would not back down “one iota” over
Iran’s nuclear programme, again rejecting a UN Security Council demand for Tehran to freeze sensitive enrichment work.

“Be certain that the government which serves you will follow the wishes of the people with wisdom and strength, and will not back down one iota,” the hardline president said in a speech carried live on state television.

Ahmadinejad also cryptically promised “very good nuclear news in the coming days”, but did not elaborate.

“Our enemies know they are unable to even slightly hurt our nation and they cannot create the tiniest obstacle on its glorious and progressive way,” he also said in the speech, given in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

“They cannot stop our nation,” he said. “They should know they cannot deprive our nation of its rights by political pressure.”

YAWN….so what is new?

Iran has not been negotiating in good faith for decades and the IAEA, EU and the United Nation’s Security Council think they can diplomatically negotiate with them?

Probably NOT.

In separate comments, Iranian army chief of staff General Abdolrahim Mousavi told the ISNA news agency that Iran will fight back against any US action against its interests.

“We will certainly retaliate against any action by the enemy, and we are vigilant over any military aggression,” he said.

“We know America’s nature, and we are keeping enemy movements under surveillance. We are aware of their oppressive actions and goals against the Muslim nations,” he added.

Again, when the “Point of No Return” is reached, President Bush and Israel WILL USE the “Big Stick.”

Stay tuned……

President Bush delivers remarks on the global war on terror at the John Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in Washington Monday, April 10, 2006.

ASSociated Press: Bush Calls Iran Talk ‘Wild Speculation’

President Bush said Monday that force is not necessarily required to stop Iran from having a nuclear weapon, and he dismissed reports of plans for a military attack against Tehran as “wild speculation.”

Bush said his goal is to keep the Iranians from having the capability or the knowledge to have a nuclear weapon.

“I know we’re here in Washington (where) prevention means force,” Bush said during an appearance at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. “It doesn’t mean force necessarily. In this case it means diplomacy.”

“Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” TR

illegalimgapr103ut Illegal Immigration Watch: Immigration Rights Activists on March Again

From the Dallas Protests yesterday. H/T John A.

Los Angeles Times: Immigration Activists on March Again

Hundreds of thousands of immigrant rights activists are expected to participate today in a coordinated campaign of nationwide protest that organizers say will be the largest of its kind in the nation’s history.

As many as 200,000 protesters are expected on the National Mall in Washington as part of a rally that acquired new urgency among immigrant rights groups after a compromise bill to overhaul immigration laws collapsed amid partisan rancor in the Senate last week.

The protest in the nation’s capital is one of more than 140 planned in dozens of cities. Organizers said the anticipated turnout in Washington could be matched in New York and Los Angeles.

These protests will actually bite Latino immigrant activists in the ass. The multi-city demonstrations are calling attention to the problems at the Mexico – USA border, how many folks have actually broken the law and are now in this country illegally. This is a THREAT to America and Americans do NOT like to be threatened.
In California and Los Angeles today: Thousands of Protesters Expected Across Southland

Thousands are expected to attend a candlelight vigil and procession today in downtown Los Angeles to urge Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration overhaul.

It is expected to be one of the largest marches among a number planned around the state. The national “Day of Action” comes two weeks after 500,000 people, according to police estimates, marched in Los Angeles to protest proposed immigration legislation.

Other demonstrations in California today include events in San Bernardino, Oxnard, Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Bakersfield, Fresno and Sacramento.

The Los Angeles procession will begin at La Placita Church near Olvera Street with a prayer from Cardinal Roger M. Mahony. After the 5 p.m. candlelight vigil, participants will march to Fletcher Bowron Square.

A rally in Santa Ana starts at noon at the federal building. In the San Fernando Valley, demonstrators will walk from Hermandad Mexicana, 7915 Van Nuys Blvd., to the federal building at 6230 Van Nuys Blvd.

Stay tuned for more photos and coverage of the protests.

And, what impact will this have on the United States Senate passing an illegal immigrant amnesty bill?

Minimal to guaranteeing a filibuster…….
