Anti Semitism And Anti Immigration

An Orange County Register news report today contains gems from the founder of the vigilante movement, Jim Gilchrist. Mr. Gilchrist admits that the movement "has ... fallen prey to ... influence by people [with] 'Saddam Hussein mentalities' and that "some of the people who have gotten into this movement have sinister intentions". Whew! But here's the kicker: "I very well may have been fighting for people with less character and less integrity than the 'open border fanatics' I have been fighting against ... And that is a phenomenal indictment of something I have created." So. You heard it from the horse's mouth. It does not get much better than this!

The bar knows the vigilantes are violent criminal-types whose motivating force is racism. However, many in the bar may be surprised to learn that the vigilantes are only secondarily concerned about Hispanics, the primary target for their hatred is, and has always been, Jews. Their beef with immigration is that it is a Jewish conspiracy to suppress a White Christian majority by diluting it racially. In other words, the anti-immigrant movement is the current face of the anti-Semitic forces in the country. This is what Mr. Gilchrist is obviously alluding to (apart from this sentence, all the facts referred to in this paragraph are from Stratfor, the leading provider of open source intelligence in the US). The anti-Semites are using whatever anti-immigrant sentiment they can find to further their own aims. Their highest priorities are to get intelligence and training from US government employees. Fortunately, honest patriots in the employ of Uncle Sam can be counted on to call the FBI in when one of their colleagues crosses the line into cooperating with the forces of hatred. We have no doubt that several such cases will come to light in the fullness of time.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.

Headlines

Building a Wall Against Talent
"John McCain's campaign Web site has a spare statement on "immigration reform" that says nothing about increasing America's intake of highly qualified immigrants. Obama's site says only: "Where we can bring in more foreign-born workers with the skills our economy needs, we should." "Where we can"? We can now."

Raw Nerves Remain After New ICE Arrest in Iowa
The federal government has left the non-profits, charities and churches to "pick up the pieces" after the raid, says Sol Varisco, Migration and Refugee Services coordinator at the Des Moines Catholic Diocese. "This is outrageous."

Dear Editor:
In response to the "Couple's name withheld" letter (06/26/2008 ID), I would like to inform all ID readers that their question, and the questions of all who seek immigration benefits can be answered by consulting a qualified and competent immigration lawyer and paying for the advice they want.

David D. Murray, Esq.,
Newport Beach, CA

Dear Editor:
There may be a problem with the link to the Southern Poverty Law Center listed in my June 26 letter. The best way to access its article about Patrick Buchanan is to go to its website, www.splcenter.org, click on "search" and type in "Buchanan". That should bring up the SPLC article, entitled "Selling Racism". I can anticipate that Jim Roberts' next letter may try to attack the SPLC unfairly as some sort of a "far left, open borders" organization, but this is not the issue. My letter did not rely on the SPLC's conclusions, but only on its actual Buchanan quotes. Unless someone can show that Buchanan did not make these statements, which are only representative of many other similar white supremacist rantings over the course of his long career, then it is clear that Mr. Roberts' letters are relying on one of America's most outspoken racists (yes, one has to use this term in referring to Buchanan) for guidance on immigration policy. Based on the tone and content of Mr. Roberts' letters to date, this should come as no surprise. Buchanan, by the way, has long called for a complete moratorium on immigration, and once went to the Mexican border to shout "No way, Jose!". His attacks on Latinos, whom he blames for the impending "breakup" of America, are just as obnoxious as his anti-black racism and his anti-Semitism. Would any letter by Mr. Roberts be willing to disavow this kind of extremism, which is against everything that America stands for?

Roger Algase, Esq.
New York, NY

Dear Editor:
usually i enjoy reading the comments of the Immigration Daily editor, however as the dol-perm-audit quagmire goes on the editor goes further and further from sound reasoning, logic, and supportable ideas. this comment is copied from the 'dol in a hole' comment (06/16/08 ID) "It would be a great surprise to find a US employer who can evaluate the applications at all without competent attorney guidance at every stage of the evaluation (if there exists a US employer who understands what "minimally qualified" means without benefit of counsel, please step forward for your applause)." it is assumed that ilw.com itself is an employer. using the logic of the editor, those at ilw.com themselves must not be able to evaluate applications. general statements such as this that are wildly out of touch with sound judgment and written apparently in an emotional state or to create responses rather than to enlighten through well considered argument are not helpful in gathering support from those of us with an interest in how dol makes policy on perm issues. such statements also show ilw.com to be as quick to overreact as dol was toward the fragomen law firm. i hope to see the 'competent attorneys' at ilw.com posting updates to perm issues in the future. the 'employers' at ilw.com have been declared, by ilw.com itself, to be incapable of any evaluative skills.

gregory pesho

Dear Editor:
Re the letter of Couple's name withheld (ID 06/26/08). We are american citizens and we live on medium u.s. income and we were forced to exile the u.s. because we must pay for medical, education for illegals and ADC recipients. So, you too will find if you become a u.s. citizen, you'll be paying the tab for millions of illegals. You'll not to able to afford medical because your bill will be drastically increased, doubled tripled in paying for ADC, illegals and a welfare system. When you get a job in the u.s. you must look forwards to millions more illegals coming in to undercut your pay and at the same time, pay their medical and education.

david utterback

Dear Editor:
Re : Mr. Utterback's and Roberts' letters (ID 6/25/2008), yes, our government is trying to "make" 2 cents out of 1 cent by printing more paper money to the mass of the world to finance our quest of imperialism and government-corporates cronyism and greed by borrowing to the foreigners particularly Chinese and Arabs. The result is global catastrophic inflation and chaos. So that's why price of commodities are soaring to the roof and make all of us suffering. Mr. Utterback failed to see that our tax dollars are used to finance costly wars for nothing of our interests and businesses and also to pay lazy US citizens who live on welfare, I have never found any illegal immigrants without ID and SSN can have food stamps or Medicaid card etc but many US citizens have them and taking advantage on our welfare system even I don't think they really deserve those welfare. I wonder what will nativists suggest here? They live in self denial that they quest for closed border and punitive immigration laws is actually based on dislike of others and fear of new competition and yet, they still mum on ideas that the same standard and punitive laws should be applied long time ago just before their own immigrant ancestors set foot on this land. Can we see the parade of double standard and hypocrisy on our debates so far?

robert yang

Dear Editor:
I appreciate the article suggesting DOL is the author of its own fraud problem (ID 06/26/08). Immigration fraud mentioned as you know happens in other Immigration law areas. The USCIS has created a handy check-list for marriage fraud, fly over meet the girl, snap some photo's, go to Courthouse get hitched and fly home. File the K2 , in a matter of months a foreign national appears on your doorstep. This is a reciepe for fraud, yet USCIS seems to focus many more man hours on on legitimately married couples who met and married state side oblivious to the USCIS "marriage formula". US Citizens who meet foreign nationals through mutual friends, work associates or classmates endure incredible scrutiny by Immigration officials, and start from a position of presumption of fraud. The USCIS formula "import a bride", arranged marriages, by families claiming to be sticking to tradition but actually simply sponsoring cousins, or internet introduction services sail through because the first "face to face" meeting occurs on foreign soil. I think "the formula" is in part why/how Nada Nadim Prouty was able to gain citizenship through a fraudulent marriage, and ultimately infiltrate the CIA and FBI and end up married to a high level Department of State official. I cannot wait to see the movie of her exploits. I was sad to read the plight of the woman facing the proposition of a husband being barred for 10 years. My advice ILW.COM can help you find an experienced attorney, don't file any paperwork without one. For moral support visit the website of americanfamiliesunited.org which is an organization that advocates for US Citizen families with this issue.

Janet Fitzgerald

Dear Editor:
Measuring by sincerity, accuracy and clarity, the letters of D. Utterback, M. Jacobs and J. Frecker (All Ref. to 6/26/08 ID) all hit the target. It is not suprising that the letter of R. Algase would reference the radical, mercenary and mudslinging SPLC who for profit, brands anyone or group that has a factual thought against open borders or entrants as, anti-immigrant, xenophobic, haters, racist, Nazi, bigoted, etc. Where have we seen these words and tactics used before? That Buchanan does not denigrate Whites and puts US first does not make him a "white supremacist"-- It makes him an American. What does this make those who advocate the opposite? Readers may judge for themselves at the blog at www.buchanan.org. The letter of H. Prchal exhibits rare exaggeration with the comparisons. I did not bring up the "Protocols" subject, only noting in response that whether a forgery or not, that many of techniques therein were similar to those being used by Globalists today for NWO hegemony including ending national sovereignty and borders. This observation, which many share, does not make them: "frothers at the mouth". Readers can make their own search on this matter. It is also erroneous to count only the number of openly radical Atzlaners as the millions of others, legal and illegal, don't mind going along with the movement silently as a stratagem. The inclusive numbers have just passed Blacks to become the largest ethnic minority and are impatiently awaiting the present demographic trend that within a few years will assign Whites that title unless we proceed with enforcement policies, not CIR amnesty. Those who advocate otherwise care little for America and have returned Her entry generosity with treachery.

Jim Roberts

Dear Editor:
If the past is dead (ID 06/25/08), how about reinstating the statute of limitations on "illegal" immigration: That if a person is here 7 years and manages to survive and thrive without any serious crimes, they will be eligible to apply for citizenship. Thus if a person has already been here for 7 years, and the statute of limitations is reinstated, their proof of residency (school records, etc.) should support their claim. This is one of the most difficult tests of the quality of the immigrants we receive. After 7 years these people are already a part of our community, and it's only right to let them "play" with us--to fully participate in the community. We are losing billions in Social Security income, tax revenue (though most pay taxes), participation in volunteer fire departments, classroom volunteers, hospital volunteers, etc. because we do not let our neighbors "play" with us in our communities. The Federal EL Civics program only points this out more poignantly, as the students learn more about our communities, but are often barred from particpating. If the past is dead, lift the sanctions on employers so the wages they pay are subject to the wage and hour laws. If the immigrants compete on an equal level, it will give us all something to learn and think about in terms of our own lack of acceptance for those who would choose to do an honest day's work for pay, regardless of what that work is. Perhaps we will finally slowly and carefully integrate our young people into our real economic lives with choice and without exploitation, rather than isolating them on school campuses so they don't see or care what we are doing until they are over 18.
