San Francisco’s Illegal Immigrant Problem

May 10, 2011 // 10 Comments

Francisco Sheriff Michael Hennessey, who holds a political office despite his title (he is elected by voters) has said he will not hold illegal immigrants in lock-up until ICE can ship them out of the country if they were caught and convicted of “low level” offenses.
His reason? Because he’s not legally required to do so.

What about San Francisco residents and their welfare? Case in point, the 2008 triple murder by an illegal immigrant who, under San Francisco’s “sanctuary” policy was not deported after his juvenile sentence was completed.

Kalifornia Illegal Immigrants Pay In State Tuition Rates

November 21, 2010 // 5 Comments

Having lived in Kalifornia since 1995, I have had my moments of “Whoa, the State is that stupid?!?

Here’s what the Kalifornia Supreme Court ruled:

If you are an illegal immigrant living in Kalifornia you can pay in-state tuition rates.

According to an LA Times story, there are 25,000 illegal immigrants paying in-state tuition! According to MSNBC:

In-state tuition saves each state college student about $11,000 a year and each University of California student about $23,000 a year.

If you are an illegal immigrant, you cannot receive financial assistance from the Federal government but you have to promise that you will try and become a U.S. citizen!

Mexico Files Brief in US Court Criticizing U.S. Border Fence, Mexico Builds It’s Own Fence

Mexico and 10 other South and Central American nations filed “friend-of-the-court” briefs to support the legal challenge behind Arizona’s immigration law, which has overwhelming support in that state as well as in the rest of America:

Gov. Jan Brewer has responded in federal court to a friend-of-the-court brief filed by Mexico and 10 other Latin American countries regarding the state’s new immigration law.

In the filing Wednesday, Brewer says Mexico is interfering with a dispute in the U.S. and has other forums to issue political opinions than federal U.S. court.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave the foreign countries permission to present their viewpoints.

Brewer’s lawyers told the appeals court that the opinions of foreign countries have no bearing on whether the law is constitutional.

The border is no secure.

President Obama is a believer in “Open Borders” which essentially holds that you should be able to live in the U.S. if you want to no matter what laws you are breaking in doing so. The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states:

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Here’s what Obama said during his immigration speech the other day:

“Being an American is not a matter of blood or birth, it’s a matter of faith,” President Obama declared at a speech he gave on immigration.
