Michigan Taxpayers Soaked for $1 Billion Annually in Illegal Alien Costs

Michigan has been a hard-luck case in the Rust Belt, having lost most of its auto and manufacturing industries over the last few decades. The September unemployment rate was 9.3 percent.

So blowing a billion dollars in taxpayer funds on foreign job thieves is not optimal in a struggling state.

Plus, the financial effect of so many moochers in the far north is another indicator of how completely Mexicans et al have implanted themselves throughout America.

Illegal Immigrants Cost Michigan Taxpayers $1 Bil A Year, Judicial Watch, October 29, 2012

A Michigan lawmaker has revealed startling figures associated with illegal immigration in the Great Lakes region; taxpayers in the Wolverine State spend nearly $1 billion annually for their healthcare, education, welfare, jails and human services.

That’s a chunk of change for a Midwestern state with a population that doesn’t quite reach 10 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The figure doesn’t even include the toll illegal immigration takes on security and jobs that are taken by those who shouldn’t even be in the U.S., according to the Michigan State Representative, Dave Agema of Grandville.

Agema made the information public because Michigan’s Secretary of State, Ruth Johnson, has come under fire for refusing to give illegal aliens driver’s licenses. That issue came up recently because President Obama granted nearly 1 million young illegal immigrants a special amnesty earlier this year and a few states have offered them driver’s licenses as icing on the cake.

Local Hispanics Trash Their Neighborhood to Celebrate World Series

San Francisco baseball fans were thrilled to see the Giants sweep to victory in four straight World Series games against the Detroit Tigers. However, some diverse residents of the city thought that rioting and property destruction were a fun way to commemorate the win.

Interestingly, all the tagging, fires and violence took place in the Mission, the city’s hispanic neighborhood. It appears that the Giants have many hispanic fans. That’s not surprising: the Giants have many hispanic-named players, all of whom speak with accents as far as I could tell.

Followers of the cheap labor aspect of immigration may have noticed that the practice extends to baseball: foreign players with a temp visa work hard for peanuts. Teams then pitch the ethnic angle to local tribal members, like the Giants’ Latino Heritage Night, which included a Carlos Santana bobblehead — only $125!

Another sign of the times: the Giants’ deluxe new stadium by the Bay shows its baseball history by a heroic statue of Willie Mays, but the team had no black American players in the recent World Series.

Back to the riot, er celebration:

Arrests, vandalism, fires mar Giants victory celebration, KTVU Oakland, October 28, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO — At least 35 people were arrested, dozens of businesses were vandalized and a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus was set on fire during rowdy celebrations that followed the San Francisco Giants’ World Series win on Sunday night, police said Monday.

The Giants swept the series against the Detroit Tigers in four games, clinching it in a 4-3, extra-inning game that set off raucous celebrations throughout the city.

The arrests, most of which occurred in the city’s South of Market and Mission neighborhoods, were for various felonies and misdemeanors, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

Bonfires were lit in the middle of streets in the Mission District, and a Muni bus was set on fire at Market and Kearny streets. Muni spokesman Paul Rose said that bus had just been revamped and cost $700,000.

Rowdy fans also climbed on top of other buses around the city, and Rose said the agency received reports of broken windows, graffiti and other damage. He said the total damage is still being assessed.

At about 12:45 a.m., a number of large bonfires were burning on Mission Street from 17th Street south. Crowds there were fueling the fires with plastic garbage and recycle bins, which could be seen melting in the flames. Continue reading this article

Europe: Muslims Rustle Sheep for Bloody Religious Sacrifice

Across the world, a billion plus Muslims are currently celebrating the Slaughter Festival of Eid al adha by slitting the throat of some animal, from sheep to camels.

It’s a family holiday, with kids included even though the sacrifice procedure is cruel and disturbing. One minute a kid is petting a cute fluffy sheep, then the critter has its throat cut with the blood running into the street. It can be upsetting to some, like the Afghan boy below.

Not to worry, though. Soon the process of desensitization takes hold and young Muslims begin to enjoy killing things, an attitude very useful for jihad.

In another sign of Islamicized Europe, thieving Muslims are stealing animals in order to kill them cruelly in Allah’s ritual. The always helpful Islam Versus Europe website informs us of two current cases, one from France, translated:

Sheep Stolen Across Europe as Muslim Butchery Festival Approaches, Friday, October 26, 2012

A flock of 130 lambs penned in an isolated field in Isère was stolen last Wednesday night. The livestock, which was in an electrified enclosure far from any livestock in Dizimieu, in Isère, was loaded “in a few minutes on to two lorries”, indicated the officer of the Crémieu brigade, Stéphane Coignard, specifying that tyre tracks have been detected on the scene.

The stock raiser, for whom the damage is estimated at 20,000 euros, had bought the sheep three weeks again in Spain in order to sell them for the Eid festival which starts on Friday.

This theft was perpetrated so that the lambs could be “slaughtered during the festival of Eid on the local market, we are 100% certain,” said the officer. “There are illegal abattoirs. The sheep can be kept in a hangar without being seen,” he added when the lambs are ringed.

Another theft was noted, from Cornwall, Britain:

Sheep stolen as rustlers target area, Cornish Guardian, October 19, 2012

POLICE are warning livestock owners to be on their guard against sheep rustlers after 20 animals were stolen in Withiel.

Officers say organised gangs are again targeting the area, after a spate of sheep thefts were committed last year within a ten-mile radius of Bodmin.

The latest farmer to lose livestock is David Harris, who keeps 300 sheep on land in the Withiel parish. Continue reading this article

Media Happily Proclaim Illegal Mexicans Are Coming Again

Leave it to the dinosaur media to present an alleged increase in illegal aliens as a cheerful sign that the American economy is getting better.

The whole thing is a little squishy, since the press made a big deal over the idea that Mexicans had slowed down in coming, while ignoring that job thieves from Central America did not let up at all.

For a while, the administration pitched the narrative that the illegal alien border-crossing problem had been solved by increased deportations (via a “deceptive” method of counting as admitted by Obama) so a mega amnesty could therefore be pushed to please the President’s foreigner base.

It does seem there has been some lessening of Mexican pests entering during the mini-depression, though it’s doubtful to the degree touted by the elite Opravda press.

At any rate, in the home stretch of the Presidential campaign, the helpful media wants us little citizens to believe that the American economy is improved — illegal aliens think so and don’t they know better than us??!

Study: Improved economy draws illegal immigrants, USA Today, October 25, 2012

Want a sign that the economy is on the rebound? Illegal immigration from Mexico is starting to rise again, according to a new report.

Immigration from Mexico fell to historic lows during the worst years of the recession. After four decades that brought 12 million people from Mexico to the U.S., people started heading back home and continued doing so from 2007 to 2011.

It’s impossible to pinpoint the exact number of people crossing the southwest border with Mexico, but the study by U.S. and Mexican researchers estimates that immigrants headed north in the first half of 2012 outnumbered those heading back for the first time since 2007.

“Illegal immigration is a market indicator,” said Roy Beck, CEO of NumbersUSA, an Arlington, Va.-based think tank that advocates lower levels of legal and illegal immigration. “They all got gigantic networks of family and friends who are already here sending information back and forth. So this is basically another sign that the economy is picking up.”

The report is a collaboration between the University of Southern California and El Colegio de la Frontera Norte in Tijuana, a Mexican government-sponsored research group. Researchers used interviews with people along the border and data from the U.S. and Mexico. Continue reading this article

Islamic Strategy of Conquest, Starting with Immigration

First the Muslims immigrate to non-Muslim nations that are stupid enough to admit them as residents. Once established, with numbers on the uptick, they begin a well-practiced program of increasing social intimidation, leading to eventual political domination.

A brief video explains the now-familiar process:

New York Bangladeshi Reveals His Undercover Role

In New York City, Shamiur Rahman (pictured), a Muslim “of Bangladeshi descent” (a verbal construction sometimes used by media to denote an immigrant), has outed himself as an undercover informant, who collected information about hostile Islamics residing in the city. He regrets his police-friendly behavior and hopes the ummah will forgive him rather than headchop.

Policing has changed since 9/11 (the first one) with more effort being put on prevention of terrorist acts out of necessity. When another Bangladeshi came under scrutiny recently, for plotting to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly observed that there have been 15 terrorist plots targeting the city since 9/11. New York is a jihad magnet like few others.

So the emphasis on prevention, which requires undercover informants, has been successful. However, many ACLU-type liberals complain at length about “entrapment” — as if just anyone can be convinced to pursue mass murder for Allah by some persuasive agent of the government. True, a poll found one in three British Muslims supported killing for Islam, but that’s still a minority. Furthermore, talk is cheap, and most Muslims residing in the West don’t want to endanger their cushy lives. But the world is home to a billion and a half Muslims, so even a small percentage of dedicated killers is dangerous.

The bad news with this story is that more prospective jihadists may decide to go completely solo to avoid undercover agents, a strategy that is entirely doable thanks to the helpful internet. DIY instructions for budding mass murderers are available on Islamic websites, like the online magazine Inspire.

Unfortunately, additional solitary terrorists would make America more dangerous. A better long-term strategy would be to end Muslim immigration entirely.

Informant: NYPD paid me to ‘bait’ Muslims, Associated Press, October 23, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — A paid informant for the New York Police Department’s intelligence unit was under orders to “bait” Muslims into saying inflammatory things as he lived a double life, snapping pictures inside mosques and collecting the names of innocent people attending study groups on Islam, he told The Associated Press.

Shamiur Rahman, a 19-year-old American of Bangladeshi descent who has now denounced his work as an informant, said police told him to embrace a strategy called “create and capture.” He said it involved creating a conversation about jihad or terrorism, then capturing the response to send to the NYPD. For his work, he earned as much as $1,000 a month and goodwill from the police after a string of minor marijuana arrests.

“We need you to pretend to be one of them,” Rahman recalled the police telling him. “It’s street theater.”

Rahman said he now believes his work as an informant against Muslims in New York was “detrimental to the Constitution.” After he disclosed to friends details about his work for the police — and after he told the police that he had been contacted by the AP — he stopped receiving text messages from his NYPD handler, “Steve,” and his handler’s NYPD phone number was disconnected.

Rahman’s account shows how the NYPD unleashed informants on Muslim neighborhoods, often without specific targets or criminal leads. Much of what Rahman said represents a tactic the NYPD has denied using. Continue reading this article

California Newspaper Considers Additional Diversity for America

Following is a typical article from Silicon Valley’s newspaper, the San Jose Mercury-News, debating over which way of screwing America is better — by increasing diversity with incompatible cultures or by adding more skilled foreigners to the workplace in a time of terrible unemployment. The piece is more of the same old liberal/business propaganda we have seen for years. But it does have a nice graph illustrating how wrong-headed Washington’s system of legal immigration has become:

As the chart shows, the biggest number of newbies is kinfolk-based, so cultures with big families, e.g. hispanics, are gaining in the ethnic proportion of who lives in the United States. Immigration plus lots of babies means rapid population growth.

In regard to employment-based immigration, tech-hiring expert Norm Matloff has written many times that the H-1b program is displacing capable Americans from jobs. In addition, California is still in double-digit unemployment, 10.2 percent for September, so the local angle is not exactly upbeat.

The diversity input machine (aka the federal government) continues unabated despite the inherent danger. In 2007, the GAO published a report (Fraud Risks Complicate State’s Ability to Manage Diversity Visa) which toted up the number of immigrants admitted under the program at nearly 10,000 persons from terror-supporting nations. See also my analysis of 2010 Diversity Visa admits from Special Interest Countries whose citizens get higher scrutiny regarding national security threats: Welcome, Unfriendly Foreigners!.

The Diversity Visa lottery should have ended immediately after 9/11. But if not, then the nations eligible should have been limited to those whose citizens are unlikely to present a national security threat, but that prudent step has not been taken either.

And take a look at the list of nations contributing diversity for 2011 — how do Americans benefit from having additional thousands of Bangladeshis, Egyptians and Iranians?

A Bangladeshi man was arrested last week for plotting to bomb the Federal Reserve Bank. Plus, Egypt has recently elected a jihad-friendly Muslim Brotherhood government, and Iran is still run by Khomeini’s acolytes, now building nukes in order to become the top turbans in the region.

Why is Washington still so dim on the idea that the world is full of people who hate America and are therefore unsuitable as new immigrants?

Here’s an idea: why not chuck the Diversity Visa entirely and instead admit the same number (50,000) of Christians and Jews now residing in increasingly unfriendly Muslim nations, particularly Egypt and Pakistan, where non-Muslims are killed with impunity all the time.

Back to the current scribblings, even Vivek Wadhwa, one of the ethnic boosters quoted, noted, “I don’t think anyone would say that America lacks diversity.”

Really? So Washington can quit diversity-based immigration then. Good.

U.S. immigration choice: Education vs. diversity, or both?, By Matt O’Brien, San Jose Mercury News, October, 19, 2012

People around the world with accredited degrees in science and math should “get a green card stapled to their diploma,” Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in his Tuesday night debate with President Barack Obama, who has made similar appeals to retain skilled foreign students.

Stewed over by lawmakers since 2009, the visa-stapled degree is a bipartisan idea that Congress has been unable to achieve. Election-year politicking brought a rare opening but then quickly shut the door to compromise this fall — specifically, whether to create more opportunities for highly educated scientists and engineers to stay in the United States at the expense of shutting down a random lottery of visas.

“Do we want to have 6,000 Iranians coming here or do we want 6,000 scientists and researchers?” U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Coronado, asked on the House of Representatives floor. “Do we want over 2,000 Moroccans (or) individuals who have proved they have an asset?” Continue reading this article

French Patriots Protest Muslim Immigration at Historic Poitiers

On Saturday, several dozen French citizens occupied a mosque under construction in Poitiers, and raised a sign demanding an end to Muslim immigration.

Poitiers was the site of the civilization-saving battle of 732 when Charles Martel defeated the Muslim invaders and chased them out of France.

More recently, however, post-war Muslim immigration into Europe has erased the advantage gained by Charles Martel. Now Poitiers is on its second mosque, no doubt because Muslims like to mark territory with Islamic edifices.

Generation Identitaire, the group mounting the protest said in part (translation from Galliawatch):

Almost 1300 years ago, Charles Martel stopped the Arabs in Poitiers after an heroic battle that saved our country from the Muslim invasion. It was October 25, 732. Today the choice is the same: live free or die. Our generation refuses to see its people and its identity disappear in indifference. We will never be the Indians of Europe (i.e., the American Indians.) From this place symbolic of our past and of the courage of our ancestors, we are launching an appeal to remember and to fight!

We do not want any more non-European immigration or any new mosques constructed on French soil. Since the first waves of African immigration and family reunification in 1974, our people have never been consulted on the populations they are forced to live with. Massive immigration is radically transforming our country: according to the latest INSEE study, 43% of those 18-50 years old in the region of Ile-de-France are immigrants or their descendants. A people can overcome an economic crisis or a war but not a replacement of our population: without Frenchmen, France no longer exists. It’s a question of survival: it is why every people has the absolute right to choose if it wishes to accept foreigners and in what proportion.

Since we have been refused this right and our generation is paying the high price in the street confronted with threats from the scum, we say: that’s enough, we will no longer back down! We demand a national referendum on immigration and mosque construction in France. We will not leave this place until we are heard.”

Naturally the press characterized the protesters as “far right” or worse, but the dramatic action has gotten worldwide attention.

French far-right group storms site of new mosque, France 24, October 20, 2012

Around sixty members of an extreme right-wing group stormed the site of a future mosque in France on Saturday, to protest against what they see as Islam’s increasing influence in the country.

According to French media, protesters from a group called Generation Identity occupied the building site in a suburb of the town of Poitiers, western France, at around 6am.

They climbed onto the building’s roof and displayed a banner marked with “732 generation identity” in reference to the year 732, when Charles Martel halted the advance of the invading Muslim army to the north of Poitiers.

The group makes their views clear on their website, which bears the statement: “We do not want more immigration from outside Europe or new mosque construction on French soil”. Continue reading this article

Seattle School Ends Halloween to Please Students from Other Cultures

First the foreigners and domestic diversity cultists came for Santa Claus and Christmas. Then they went after Easter, where a Seattle school renamed Easter eggs to be “Spring Spheres”. Celebrations of America’s birthday also have come in for criticism from open-borders elites.

The multi-cultis don’t object to Thanksgiving as much, since it can be rejiggered into the diversity holiday: the emphasis on food allows foreigners to express themselves by preparing the traditional dishes of their homelands and American culture can be ignored altogether.

The diversity extremists seem intent on wiping out any semblance of traditional American culture from the education of the nation’s children.

On the other hand, schools don’t mind intense promotion of diversity as the highest good. Islam is treated as just another nice religion, despite copious evidence to the contrary. Sometimes kids are even encouraged to dress like Arabs to get into the mood for Islamic indoctrination.

But when kids want to have a traditional American Halloween, that’s over the line in Seattle, because immigrants from “other cultures” might be upset.

Perhaps if Halloween were renamed Zombie Diversity Day then there would be no problem.

Seattle Elementary School Bans Halloween Costumes, CBS Seattle, October 19, 2012

A Seattle school has banned students from celebrating a new holiday this year: Halloween.

Lafayette Elementary School has decided to not allow students to dress up in costume for Halloween this year. And there is still some discrepancy between parents and the administration as to why the ban has been implemented this fall.

The decision was first reported by the district (Seattle Public Schools) as being a preventative measure in the event that Halloween costumes could offend and upset students who come from other cultures. Dozens of parents complained to the school over the measure demanding a detailed explanation. Continue reading this article

Muslims Intimidate National Geographic over Bin Laden Film

Over at National Geographic headquarters, security is being increased after numerous threats over an upcoming film about the SEALs’ takedown of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.

One one hand, it’s hard to get too upset in this case, since the movie was produced by Obama backer Harvey Weinstein and is scheduled to show on the NatGeo cable channel two days before the election. What convenient timing for the President!

On the other hand, the shrieks from Muslims over a little docu-drama show how a European level of Islamic violence against free speech is now growing in America. Usually the Muslims threatening carnage claim they are defending Islam from blasphemy, but in fact Allah’s slaves will kill over the slightest excuse.

Interestingly, there’s a Hollywood film in the hopper on the same subject from Kathryn Bigelow, the director of Hurt Locker, titled Zero Dark Thirty, which was postponed until after the election because of criticism from Republicans. Will violent Muslims threaten theater-goers when the film is shown in December? We shall see.

Following is a preview clip from NatGeo’s “Seal Team Six” film, which jihadist Muslims find insulting, even though they haven’t seen it. (Of course we wouldn’t have this problem if it weren’t for Washington’s policies of crazy-diverse immigration that welcome the historic enemies of Western civilization.)

If Muslims riot around the world over the National Geographic docu-drama, will Obama direct the proper authorities to arrest Harvey Weinstein, as he apparently did regarding schlock Mohammad movie guy Nakoula B. Nakoula? Given his political clout, it’s doubtful Weinstein is worried.

NatGeo TV on terror alert, New York Post, October 17, 2012

The National Geographic Channel has beefed up security at its Washington headquarters after being “bombarded” by threats over its upcoming film, “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden,” a source said yesterday.

The movie has prompted enough threats from what one source called “Muslim extremist groups” that the network felt it had to take the action.

“They have been bombarded with phone calls and blog posts, saying that anyone airing a film like this is asking for trouble,” the source added.

“Enough threats have come in that the network is on higher security alert. They have a huge public building, with a museum and 1,600 people working.”

The network was already receiving sharp criticism for its decision to debut the feature-length TV movie Nov. 4, two days before the presidential election. Critics charged the timing was calculated to boost President Obama’s campaign. Continue reading this article

Bangladeshi Jihadist Plotted to Destroy New York's Federal Reserve Bank

New York City just dodged another Islamic bullet. The would-be mass-murderer, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis (pictured), thought he had a 1,000-pound bomb parked in front of the Federal Reserve Bank, but fortunately he had been headed off by an FBI agent posing as a fellow jihadist and the explosives were fake.

The 21-one-year-old came from Bangladesh on a student visa and had attended Southeast Missouri State University in the spring semester, pursuing a Bachelors of Science in cyber security. But getting a college education was a merely a ruse, and his purpose in entering America was to commit a major jihadist act with lots of dead.

The criminal complaint explained that Nafis wrote an article about his motivations, including quotations from the late Mr. bin Laden to justify an action he thought would kill many women and children, plus his intention to take down America’s economic system:

all I had in my mind are how to destroy America . . . I came up to this conclusion that targeting America’s economy is most efficient way to draw the path of obliteration of America as well as the path of establishment of Khilapha.

I decided to attack the Federal Reserve bank of New York which is by far the largest (by assets), most active (by volume) and most influential of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks. New York Federal Reserve Bank implements monetary policy, supervises and regulates financial institutions and helps maintain the nation’s payment systems.

Before going forward with his bomb plot, Nafis filmed a videotape of himself telling Americans “We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.”

New York City has had 15 attempted terror attacks since 9/11, indicating that the city remains a desirable target for Allah’s killers.

Bangladeshi man arrested after allegedly trying to blow up Fed building in NYC, Fox News, October 17, 2012

Federal authorities arrested a Bangladeshi national Wednesday morning for allegedly plotting to blow up a Federal Reserve Bank in New York City’s lower Manhattan, mere blocks away from the site of the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. The bank is one of 12 branches around the country.

The 21-year-old suspect, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, attempted to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb in front of the Fed building on Liberty Street, but the device was a fake supplied to him by undercover FBI agents who had been tracking his activity, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force said Wednesday afternoon.

The supposed explosives posed no threat to the public, the FBI said.

A criminal complaint accuses Nafis of having overseas connections to Al Qaeda and travelling to the U.S. in January to recruit individuals to form a terrorist cell and conduct an attack on American soil. He came under the guise of going to school in Missouri on a student visa. One of Nafis’ potential recruits was an FBI source, who alerted authorities, the FBI said. Continue reading this article

Presidential Debate #2: Obama Revives Arizona Racial Profiling Myth

It’s interesting how easily President Obama jumped to his comfortable fiction about Arizona’s state immigration law being all about racial profiling. It happened when the debate turned to illegal immigration:

Transcript of second presidential debate Published October 16, 2012

[. . . Gov Romney] called the Arizona law a model for the nation. Part of the Arizona law said that law enforcement officers could stop folks because they suspected maybe they looked like they might be undocumented workers and check their papers.

You know what? If my daughter or yours looks to somebody like they’re not a citizen, I don’t want — I don’t want to empower somebody like that. [. . .]

Did Obama, the former law professor, snooze through this year’s Supreme Court decision that allowed police to check immigration status during lawful encounters? There was never a provision of SB 1070 to do mass round-ups, but race profiling was the convenient lie the raza-tarians and compliant media used to spew the racism charge.

At least Obama didn’t repeat a favorite word picture, that of evil jack-booted police snatching up hispanic parents and kiddies strolling with ice cream cones:

“You can imagine if you are an Hispanic American in Arizona, your great grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state, but now suddenly if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re gonna be harassed,” Obama said, referring to the statute at a April rally in Iowa. CNN, May 16, 2010
