Holder: Amnesty is a 'civil right'
WorldNetDaily ^ | April 26, 2013 | John T. Bennett

Posted on 04/26/2013 5:00:41 AM PDT by wesagain

"Attorney general promises government working to protect illegal aliens"

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in remarks that largely have escaped notice, has claimed that “creating a mechanism for [illegal aliens] to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows… is a matter of civil and human rights.”

Holder also said that the federal government will work hard “to safeguard the rights of language minorities.”

These claims are likely to add fuel to the growing controversy over the Senate amnesty proposal developed by the so-called “Gang of Eight.”

Holder made these remarks in an April 24 speech to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund Awards Gala. MALDEF’s notable activity includes suing Sheriff Joe Arpaio and opposing Arizona’s immigration law.

Holder said, “[I]t is long past time to reform our immigration system in a way that is fair; that guarantees that all are playing by the same rules…”

However, one of the primary criticisms of amnesty is that it does not treat all immigrants according to the same rules. Instead, according to critics, amnesty would reward illegal aliens by allowing them to bypass established procedures required for legal entry.

Holder framed the amnesty proposal in........

THIS from the man the burned American children ALIVE
when thereafter he devoted the DO”J” to defending
terrorists (killing Americans) from American justice.

Holder belongs in prison, as do his defenders in Congress
for misprision of felony.

There is an illegal invasion of foreign socialists who hate America. no it's not just Muslims but Mexicans that are socialists and hate America. and these traitors want to give them Amnesty

this Amnesty bill is horrendous.

1. it gives illegals amnesty
2. allows the new Amnestied citizens to bring in their families back home from Mexico and other hell holes(100 million new 3rd world immigrants
3. it creates a new visa
4. it is over 800 pages and growing ( have the American people read it no because the media is hiding what they are doing )
5. creates new gov bureaucracies

they want to finish off America. this all started with the 1965 kennedy immigration bill (after that 80% of the legal immigrants came from the 3rd world . no country allows this level of immigration from the world's sewers. democrats destroyed the greatest society by importing maggots. these legal immigrants provided a home base for illegals, communities etc. repeal the 1965 immigration bill

The whole purpose for amnesty is to register 30 million new democrat voters.
That would be the end of our representative republic.
Think we aren’t represented now?
It would solidify democrat rule and effectively eliminate any opposition.

That is their goal.

(GAG) HERE'S SOME OF THE ILLEGALS "TOLERANT AND COMPASSIONATE HOLDER" IS HELPING TO BECOME US CITIZENS---- Viscious Mexican drug cartels are swarming into the US. Beheadings are their calling card.

Mexican drug lords are partners in financial arrangements with Hamas and Hezbollah terorists. The savage terroristss will be empowered to expand those partnerships via The Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill, and Holder is aiding and abetting the terrorist schemes.

It’s a small step from blanketing America w/ marijuana and heroin to aiding and abetting Hezbollah terrorist operations. To these hardened criminal, the profit motive rules, no matter the source.

===============================================

NY POST EXCERPT--- Mexican cartels dispatch agents deep inside US - spread into non-border states

CHICAGO (AP) — Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States — an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits.

If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping- and-extortion rackets and money laundering.

In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings — more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are a signature. So far, cartels don't appear to be directly responsible for large numbers of slayings in the United States, though the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 22 killings and five kidnappings in Texas at the hands of Mexican cartels from 2010 through mid- 2011. Still, police worry that increased cartel activity could fuel heightened violence.--SNIP--

In Chicago, narco/cop Commander James O'Grady, said street-gang disputes over turf account for most of the city's uptick in murders last year, when slayings topped 500 for the first time since 2008.

Although the cartels aren't dictating the territorial wars, they are the source of drugs. Riley's assessment is stark: He argues that the cartels should be seen as an underlying cause of Chicago's disturbingly high murder rate. "They are the puppeteers," he said. "Maybe the shooter didn't know and maybe the victim didn't know that. But if you follow it down the line, the cartels are ultimately responsible."

The Obama Regime does not attract talent ~ not even leftwingtard talent. Rather, it starts with the dregs at the bottom of the barrel and digs down!

I don't think it's their choice but most younger folks have the rest of their lives to live and i suspect that accepting an appointed job under Obama is something that will ruin your credit rating, and ultimately your public reputation, for the rest of your life.

yes , the illegals are undocumented democrats

Once these 30 new democrat voters have Amnesty they can also bring in their families from the 3rd world. that's all we need more 3rd world vermin , a 100 million more locusts

the whole purpose of the 1965 immigration act was to import democrats. California used to be a conservative state as they elected Reagan as their governor. import several million Mexicans into california and viola california is now a sick liberal socialist hell hole. they are doing this to all of the U.S.

The Boston bomber brothers lived lavishly, drove luxury cars, and had the leisure time, and money, to buy and build deadly bombs...with no visible means of support. Monthly welfare check would not suffice---they had to have several other sources of income.

A look at Tamerlan's reading list on Amazon shows he researched forging phony identities---a practice very common in the latino community.

PUT THIS IN YOUR BROWSER http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/registry.html?ie=UTF8&type=wishlist&id=1PNVMAW2D4CT1

======================================

NJ BERGEN RECORD CIRCA 2004---Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity (many latinos establish multiple identities in order to ride the US gravy train).

The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses----for any state in the US------ passports and resident alien cards, said NJ state police.

The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot.

The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. After a search, police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.

All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street when sold to "impoverished illegals." Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 phony Social Security cards. ####

===========================================

The Third World knows massive financial benefits would derive from "immigration reform"......Third world pressure groups exchanging votes for foreign aid---zillions of us tax dollars going straight into the pockets of corrupt third world federales.

Several year ago, a TV report concerned a US Post Office somewhere near the Mexican border that was used by illegals to send money home. It was so busy the US Govt. put in several trailers to handle the business.

IMPOVERISHED THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES LYING IN WAIT---W/ PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally sending billions back home): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.

Immigration reform is the gateway to terrorism. "Undocumented" is code for "ethnic solidarity" (Boston bombers w/ a latino accent).US politicans aiding and abetting ethnic solidarity should be investigated----determine who is giving them their marching orders----for collusion and conspiracy with foreign agents to undermine US ntl security and endanger Americans. The word is out: "undocumented" terrorists, come on down---invade the US, and bring bombs. It's open season to conduct dirty deeds....and US politicans are helping us."

=========================================================

THESE ARE HOLDER'S PEOPLE----"UNDOCUMENTED ALIIENS"
PREACH ETHNIC SOLIDARITY---VOW TO KILL AMERICANS.

BLOOD-CURDLING "LA RAZA STUDIES"--- ACTUALLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS FOR TEN YEARS : These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

La Raza is using taxpayer funds to organize the murdering of Americans; the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

ARIZONA SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE--- Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza ethnic solidarity indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.

Cong Raul Grijalva (and friend) is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding--abetting and funding La Raza studies.

Good point.

AS SICKIOFLIBS INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: There is winning or whining, we need to choose. Post-2012 we now know "Immigration Reform" is a dangerous issue for Repubs---they are cornered.

A Morning Joe guest pointed out that even suckup Obama once voted against immigration reform b/c it lacked a ‘path to citizenship’----a key demand of strongarm unions.

MJ guest also observed that unions are not enthused about immigration reform b/c legalized workers will compete with union members (exactly why business wants it). Now unions will go along IF illegals get the vote (cunning union bosses calculate this will help them b/c illegals will vote Dem/lib).

SOLibs SOLUTION---HOIST THEM ON THEIR OWN PETARD Repubs in the House should not do or say anything until Reid gets a bill passed. At that point, Rs offer a ‘compromise’ that is similar to Obama's relentless EO's.....but contains no path to citizenship.

Now if Reid fails, the GOP goes into 2014 rubbing the debacle into the faces of a key Dem base (EXACTLY how Obama plays Rs against each other) .

It is important that Repubs say things like “America is built on hard working immigrants and we welcome those immigrants who want to follow our laws, pay their taxes and live the American Dream’ (the way O sucks up----not pull a Romney 47% gaffe). When the bill dies for lack of union support-Repubs can then blame Dems and Obama for ‘making the perfect the enemy of the good.'

Amen.

That;s ridiculous. immigrants vote democrat. that was the purpose of the 1965 Kenedy immigration act. 80% of the immigrants since that act are from the 3rd world sewers and most are non-white( the media and democrats use racial and cultural marxism to turn the U.S. A into a socialist hell hole). as a result of this racial marxism 92% of Blacks vote democrat, over 70% and growing of hispanics vote democrat. new immigrants even higher. in the cities there is huge voter fraud in black and immigrant communities. ever tried to talk a liberal out of voting democrat? you'd have better luck converting a Muslim

these immigrants are from the 3rd world and they hate America, middle America, and Republicans.

immigrants are not Americans. they don't believe in small government , freedom, middle America etc.

you are delusional. look at what happened to California. it was a very conservative state, voting for Ronald Reagan as their governor. then after importing tens of millions of Mexicans it is arguably the most liberal, most democrat state.

and It's not just hispanics , a million other types of 3rd world immigrants, Haitians, zomalis, pakistanis you name it. they are not Americans so they don't share our values of small government , liberty, invidual rights like the 2nd amendment, I talk to all sorts of foreigners they hate Republicans and the fact we own guns.

“Holder: Amnesty is a ‘civil right’”

Horse manure. So, if this two-bit lawyer is right, then every human being on the planet has the “civil right” to plop themselves down in the middle of the USSA and to latch on to Uncle Sugar’s teat.

It’s too bad we do not have a functioning legislative branch. Mr Holder is a textbook case for impeachment.

Rubio Claims Amnesty Needed to Identify Illegal Immigrants
But law already requires all aliens to register

WASHINGTON, DC (April 26, 2013) — Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is claiming amnesty is necessary so that the United States can determine the identity of illegal aliens in the country. However, basic enforcement of existing immigration law is all that is necessary to acquire their identities. Instead of promoting amnesty, Sen. Rubio could demand that the Obama administration enforce 8 U.S.C. § 1302, “Registration of Aliens,” which makes it “the duty of every alien” to register their presence in the United States if they remain here 30 days or longer. Failure to do so results in a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment up to six months.

Rubio explained his support for amnesty and his flip-flop on border security, saying: “We don’t want to wait on legalizing, and I’ll tell you why. My original position was that we wanted to secure the border first, and then legalize. The problem is we have millions of people here now, by some estimates ten, eleven million. We want to know who they are and freeze the problem in place. I don’t want that number to grow. It behooves us to know who they are as soon as possible, so it doesn’t get worse.”

More details at: http://www.cis.org/feere/rubio-amnesty-needed-identify-illegals-law-already-requires-registration

The existing registration law applies to nearly all illegal aliens. The Department of Homeland Security’s estimates of 11.5 million illegal aliens (as of January 2011) are on based the American Community Survey. The survey uses a two-month rule for calculating residency; those here for less than two months are not counted. This means that the 11.5 million illegal immigrants are by definition people who have been in the United States illegally for more than 60 days and running afoul of the 30-day registration requirement. There is simply no question that the illegal immigrant population is comprised of people who are violating this registration statute.

Sen. Rubio seems to have fallen into President Obama’s trap: First, the Obama administration refuses to enforce immigration laws, and then the president points to all of the illegal immigration that results as a reason for amnesty. Rubio appears to have embraced the amnesty agenda as a means to correct a problem that has resulted from intentional non-enforcement.

A little noticed complaint has been that the Democrats and their running dog lackeys in Congress and the media have been referring to the illegal aliens as if they are STATELESS ~ that they have no citizenship unless we provide that to them.

I"m not sure they are consciously aware of what they are saying, but Holder shows the first inkling of some sense that THEY ARE ALREADY CITIZENS SOMEWHERE ELSE.

I think I've succeeded in bringing that up as something the Democrats have to successfully beat down or they're going to lose this whole deal.

What the illegals are missing is not citizenship BUT A VISA. The way they can get a visa is to go back to their home country, or to a US consulate in another country ~ e.g. Canada, or Mexico ~ and apply for a visa as a tourist, or maybe a student.

They are suffering from no disability whatsoever that suggests we need to keep them in the US to deal with their need for visas.

He didn't swear an oath to a country.

Holder

He swore to do his master's bidding.

I hope conservatives take note. When a liberal uses the words “civil right” they really mean just another way to marginalize anyone who disagrees as a bigot. Its worked for homosexuals.

If amnesty is a civil right then why isn’t Holder pushing to disband ICE? Apparently they are not needed.
