What Is Public Charge Doctrine?

A “public charge” is someone who cannot provide for himself and thus relies on public assistance for a substantial part of his livelihood; it is someone who is a charge, or responsibility, of the public.6 Individuals who are deemed as likely to become charges of the public are excluded from entering the United States. If an immigrant becomes a public charge, he may be deported. With the rise of the welfare state in the United States since the Progressive Era, public assistance has increasingly come through the civil government; however, public aid historically had a heavy private sector, voluntary, charitable aspect.

The policy of excluding potential public charges seeks to ensure that individuals unable or unwilling to sustain themselves not burden society. It embodies the idea that an immigrant should be self-sufficient and contribute to the society granting him the privilege of becoming a new member. It is one of the conditions of the social contract. Immigration policy relates to the choosing among foreigners those whom a country will accept. Designating public charges as excludable rests within the rights of a sovereign nation to decide on those to whom to grant admission or the right to remain.

The chief goal of American immigration policy has always been to admit productive, self-reliant individuals who positively contribute to society. For instance, early goals of this country included settling frontiers and building commercial enterprises. Policymakers employed immigration to help reach these goals, largely limiting admission to able-bodied, responsible individuals. “Desirable” immigrants have been expected to pay taxes, exhibit republican virtues, and possess good moral character. Public charges fall under the category of “undesirables.” They put a drain on society, rather than contribute productively and positively to it.

ICE Providing Dental Care For Illegal Aliens

Awe, does this not make you feel warm and fuzzy all over? Our tax dollars going to fix the grills and chicklets of criminals? Illegal immigrants, along with the professionally unemployed have busted America’s hospitals and medical care facilities. Illegal immigration has not helped America, or Americans, unless you are a politician, or a immoral business owner. So let’s all give a big, one finger salute to the best Dead Kennedy; Teddy, for getting this downward spiral stared. If possible, I hope somebody can drop a duece on his head stone; it is what Teddy did to America back in 65.
BTW: Detainees = Illegal Alien Criminals

Last week, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a press release detailing the how the agency now “provides quality medical care to detainees.”

According to the release, more than 900 Public Health Service-commissioned officers, civil servants and privately contracted staff now make up the ICE Health Service Corps (IHSC) in order “to serve as the medical authority for ICE on a wide range of medical issues, including the agency’s comprehensive detainee health care program.”

Ten Things You Need To Know About S.3827, The DREAM Act

Ten Things You Need To Know About S.3827, The DREAM Act

http://cfif.org/v/index.php/commentary/58-immigration/821-ten-things-you-need-to-know-about-s3827-the-dream-act

1. The DREAM Act Is NOT Limited to Children, And It Will Be Funded On the Backs Of Hard Working, Law-Abiding Americans

Proponents of the DREAM Act frequently claim the bill offers relief only to illegal alien “kids.” Incredibly, previous versions of the DREAM Act had no age limit at all, so illegal aliens of any age who satisfied the Act’s requirements—not just children—could obtain lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. In response to this criticism, S.3827 includes a requirement that aliens be under the age of 35 on the date of enactment to be eligible for LPR status. Even with this cap, many aliens would be at least 41 years old before obtaining full LPR status under the Act—hardly the “kids” the Act’s advocates keep talking about.

The DREAM Act requires that DHS/USCIS process all DREAM Act applications (applications that would require complex, multi-step adjudication) without being able to increase fees to handle processing. This mandate would require either additional Congressional appropriations, or for USCIS, a primarily fee-funded agency, to raise fees on other types of immigration benefit applications. This would unfairly spread the cost of administering the DREAM Act legalization program among applicants and petitioners who have abided by U.S. laws and force taxpayers to pay for amnesty. Taxpayers would also be on the hook for all Federal benefits the DREAM Act seeks to offer illegal aliens, including student loans and grants.

2. The DREAM Act PROVIDES SAFE HARBOR FOR ANY ALIEN, Including Criminals, From Being Removed or Deported If They Simply Submit An Application

Although DREAM Act proponents claim it will benefit only those who meet certain age, presence, and educational requirements, amazingly the Act protects ANY alien who simply submits an application for status no matter how frivolous. The bill forbids the Secretary of Homeland Security from removing “any alien who has a pending application for conditional status” under the DREAM Act—regardless of age or criminal record—providing a safe harbor for all illegal aliens. This loophole will open the floodgates for applications that could stay pending for many years or be litigated as a delay tactic to prevent the illegal aliens’ removal from the United States. The provision will further erode any chances of ending the rampant illegality and fraud in the existing system.

3. Certain Criminal Aliens Will Be Eligible For Amnesty Under The DREAM Act

Certain categories of criminal aliens will be eligible for the DREAM Act amnesty, including alien gang members and aliens with misdemeanor convictions, even DUIs. The DREAM Act allows illegal aliens guilty of the following offenses to be eligible for amnesty: alien absconders (aliens who failed to attend their removal proceedings), aliens who have engaged in voter fraud or unlawfully voted, aliens who have falsely claimed U.S. citizenship, aliens who have abused their student visas, and aliens who have committed marriage fraud. Additionally, illegal aliens who pose a public health risk, aliens who have been permanently barred from obtaining U.S. citizenship, and aliens who are likely to become a public charge are also eligible.

4. Estimates Suggest That At Least 2.1 Million Illegal Aliens Will Be Eligible For the DREAM Act Amnesty. In Reality, We Have No Idea How Many Illegal Aliens Will Apply

Section 4(d) of the DREAM Act waives all numerical limitations on green cards, and prohibits any numerical limitation on the number of aliens eligible for amnesty under its provisions. The Migration Policy Institute estimates that the DREAM Act will make approximately 2.1 million illegal aliens eligible for amnesty. It is highly likely that the number of illegal aliens receiving amnesty under the DREAM Act will be much higher than the estimated 2.1 million due to fraud and our inherent inability to accurately estimate the illegal alien population. Clearly, the message sent by the DREAM Act will be that if any young person can enter the country illegally, within 5 years, they will be placed on a path to citizenship.

5. Illegal Aliens Will Get In-State Tuition Benefits

The DREAM Act will allow illegal aliens to qualify for in-state tuition, even when it is not being offered to U.S. citizens and legally present aliens living just across state lines. Section 3 of the DREAM Act repeals Section 505 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (8 U.S.C. 1623) which prohibits giving education benefits to an unlawfully present individual unless that same benefit is offered to all U.S. citizens.

6. The DREAM Act Does Not Require That An Illegal Alien Finish Any Type of Degree (Vocational, Two-Year, or Bachelor’s Degree) As A Condition of Amnesty

DREAM Act supporters would have you believe that the bill is intended to benefit illegal immigrants who have graduated from high school and are on their way to earning college degrees. However, the bill is careful to ensure that illegal alien high school drop-outs will also be put on a pathway to citizenship – they simply have to get a GED and be admitted to “an institution of higher education,” defined by the Higher Education Act of 1965.

Under the Higher Education Act, an “institution of higher education” includes institutions that provide 2-year programs (community colleges) and any “school that provides not less than a 1-year program of training to prepare students for gainful employment” (a vocational school). Within 8 years of the initial grant of status, the alien must prove only that they finished 2 years of a bachelor’s degree program, not that they completed any program or earned any degree.

If the alien is unable to complete 2 years of college but can demonstrate that their removal would result in hardship to themselves or their U.S. citizen or LPR spouse, child, or parent, the education requirement can be waived altogether.

7. The DREAM Act does not require that an illegal alien serve in the military as a condition for amnesty, and There is ALREADY A Legal Process In Place For Illegal Aliens to Obtain U.S. Citizenship Through Military Service

DREAM Act supporters would have you believe that illegal aliens who don’t go to college will earn their citizenship through service in the U.S. Armed Forces. However, the bill does not require aliens to join the U.S. Armed Forces (the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard); instead it requires enlistment in the “uniformed services.” This means that aliens need only go to work for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or Public Health Service for 2 years to get U.S. citizenship. If the alien is unable to complete 2 years in the “uniformed services,” and can demonstrate that their removal would result in hardship to themselves or their U.S. citizen or LPR spouse, child, or parent, the military service requirement can be waived altogether. Such claims will likely engender much litigation and place a huge burden on DHS.

Furthermore, under current law (10 USC § 504), the Secretary of Defense can authorize the enlistment of illegal aliens. Once enlisted in the U.S. Armed Forces, under 8 USC § 1440, these illegal aliens can become naturalized citizens through expedited processing, often obtaining U.S. citizenship in six months.

8. Despite Their Current Illegal Status, DREAM Act Aliens Will Be Given All The Rights That Legal Immigrants Receive—Including The Legal Right To Sponsor Their Parents and Extended Family Members For Immigration

Under current federal law, U.S. citizens have the right to immigrate their “immediate relatives” to the U.S. without regard to numerical caps. Similarly, lawful permanent residents can immigrate their spouses and children to the U.S. as long as they retain their status. This means illegal aliens who receive amnesty under the DREAM Act will have the right to immigrate their family members—including the parents who sent for or brought them to the U.S. illegally in the first place—in unlimited numbers as soon as they become U.S. citizens (6 to 8 years after enactment) and are 21 years of age.

Additionally, amnestied aliens who become U.S. citizens will be able to petition for their adult siblings living abroad to immigrate to the U.S., further incentivizing chain migration and potentially illegal entry into the United States (for those who don’t want to wait for the petition process overseas). When an adult brother or sister receives a green card, the family (spouse and children) of the adult sibling receive green cards as well.

9. Current Illegal Aliens Will Get Federal Student Loans, Federal Work Study Programs, and Other Forms of Federal Financial Aid

Section 10 of the DREAM Act allows illegal aliens amnestied under the bill’s provisions to qualify for federal student assistance under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1001 et seq.) in the form of federal student loans (Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans, Federal Direct Stafford/Ford Loans), federal work-study programs, and other federal education services such as tutoring and counseling.

10. DHS Is Prohibited From Using the Information Provided By Illegal Aliens Whose DREAM Act Amnesty Applications Are Denied To Initiate Their Removal Proceedings or Investigate or Prosecute Fraud in the Application Process

When an illegal alien’s DREAM Act amnesty application is denied, the bill states that the alien will revert to their “previous immigration status,” which is likely illegal or deportable. The bill, however, prohibits using any of the information contained in the amnesty application (name, address, length of illegal presence that the alien admits to, etc) to initiate a removal proceeding or investigate or prosecute fraud in the application process. Thus, it will be extremely hard for DHS to remove aliens who they now know are illegally present in the U.S., because illegal aliens will be able to claim that the legal action is a product of the amnesty application, and DHS will have the nearly impossible task of proving a negative.

Obama The Enkindler

I will keep this short and sweet. We have folks like the Bears head coach; Lovie Smith, calling on blacks to have Obama’s back. ““Our future’s looking bright because I trust the man who will be leading us into the future. And that man is Barack Obama,” Smith says before flipping a football.

“I have the president’s back and it’s left up to us as African-Americans to show that we have his back, also,” the coach says. “Join African Americans for President Obama today.”

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-03-06/sports/chi-bears-coach-lovie-smith-backs-obama-reelection-20120306_1_general-election-chicago-bears-bears-coach

So let’s get this straight Sir Lovie: Sounds as though y’all are asking black folks to vote for a guy simply because he is black? Even though he has very little in common with you, or most other average Joe’s.

So I what Barry the Enkindler wants are for whites to “have the “insert white candidates name here” back?
And we all know BTE wants to incite hate through class warfare.

Yup, so much for bringing the country,world, and universe together as one!:)

Conservatives Tough Stance On Illegal Immigration: Liberal Newsweek Says “Attacking Latinos”

Like an idiot, I made the mistake of reading a few lines from the pages of a liberal “crap” rag; Newsweek. I will not waste my time linking to the article, because it is just total bull-shite. It says something about Romney’s “latino” voter numbers. 14% if I remember the number correctly. So let me get this straight: It is an attack on the entire “latino” population( whatever happened to just being an American?) when a candidate, or anybody else takes issue with illegal aliens? Here is the deal; you break the law, and you are a criminal. Period, and end of story. If people are here illegally, they should not have access to any social,medical, or any other government service.

Know where did I say that many of these folks are not good people. No where did I say that they need to be targeted for their skin color. We conservatives, and anybody else fed up with the liberal media dictating the conversation on illegal immigration, need to start getting loud, and intolerant, of these pieces of trash calling us racist, and bigots. We also have to start speaking out when ever we here these lies locally. City council meeting, in the work place, grocery stores, and eating establishments.

It is way past time for giving these folks a free pass. I know it is the Christian conservative’s way to be humble and polite, but this is one of the reasons we find ourselves in this mess. If we helped create it, we sure can help solve it too!

Ethnic Celebrations “Rage Against The White Man Component

I hope my friend Carl does not mind me reposting a comment he made. If you do Carl, let me know my friend. This is an incredible first hand account. I will let his words tell the story.

Carl says
“33 years in Miami Dade schools. The ethnic celebrations have always had a rage against the white man component. I spent my whole adult life in the Afro/American and Haitian communities teaching kids how to read and write and maybe a little history here and there as well. It hurt me more than insulted me and the hate is sanctioned by a county that is 80% minority and/or foreign born. Cursing out a white teacher with racial epithets is not seen as a punishable offense in many schools. I once heard a rabid “hate the white man”local NAACP woman address an entire auditorium of black kids saying George Washington was not to be revered as he fathered many slave children. Huh? George Washington had small pox when he was 10. He survived. It left him sterile. As a mason he would not stoop to such immorality in the first place.”
