Bill allows for $150M in grants to sign up illegal immigrants to become citizens
Fox News ^ | May 4, 2013

Posted on 05/04/2013 8:20:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A Washington group is criticizing the Senate immigration bill because it allows for up to $150 million for organizations to advertise citizenship opportunities and to help illegal immigrants sign up to become citizens.

The nonpartisan Center for Immigration Services calls the money “slush funds” and earlier this week cited several concerns -- particularly that the money can go to the same groups that helped craft the legislation and that the spending appears to have no cap or oversight.

“It’s virtually a blank check,” Jon Feere, a Center for Immigration Services legal policy analyst, told FoxNews.com. “And the groups that helped draft this bill can now give themselves taxpayer dollars.”

The money is divided into two parts. The first is $100 million in grants to public and private nonprofit groups for programs that help people apply for provisional immigrant status, which includes assistance with completing applications and gathering proof of identification.

The other part in $50 million for additional assistance that includes legal help and public-awareness campaigns that tell illegal immigrants about the “eligibility and benefits of registered immigration status.”(continued)

Does anyone SERIOUSLY think that the Illegals will pay fines. They will not. They will either have them waived (hardship waiver), or LaRaza or some other group will cover it.

...it is Amnesty (forgiveness), as far as the Illegals are concerned.

Look, this is not Rubio’s fault,
He was busy on the Sunday talk shows talking up the immigration bill telling us how they would die of old age before they get citizenship when Dems snuck this part into it.
Those Dems trickiness is downright diabolical!

And use the grant money from our tax dollars to do so. In essence we, the taxpayers who want them deported, are paying for them to come to the USA.

Past time for a tax revolt.

I need my money to eat, not to supply criminals the comforts of life in the USA.

I’ll bet the buffoons on the hill have added millions into the bill for gas money for La Raza to go down, pick them up and bring them back here.

I agree. Stop spending our hardearned dollars to pay people to sir around and thief more ways to tax us. I’ve got an idea; let’s trim our budget big time by firing Congress and the House of Non-Representatives and shutting down half the IRS offices.

This is money put in for the powerful American Bar Asso. by their lobbyists to make sure they get their share. The lawyers have to be taken care of at every opportunity by our Gov't. because most of this money will come back to the politicians for re-elections.

This, the only country in the world that meekly allows a 20-million-strong invasion from third-world countries, then looks to rewarding the invaders with generous benefits and citizenship.

America’s national act of suicide progresses on schedule.

Better: Spend $150 million to sign up illegals. Then, after they’ve signed the papers, tell them they’ve just signed voluntary deportation papers and they have to apply through normal immigration channels to come back. Gotcha!

(REGISTERING SHOCK AND SURPRISE -- snix)---a $150 million provision in the Rubio/Schumer bill is a “slush fund” --- millions for the same ethnic solidarity groups that helped craft the legislation; millions w/ no cap or oversight---a federal ATM to insert ethnic solidarity poison in US laws---

$100 million in federal grants to public and private "ethic solidarity nonprofits" to help illegals complete applications and choose which of their multiple identities to use to get the most US freebies.

Another $50 million for legal help and PR campaigns that tell illegals about the “trainload of freebies they get w/ registered immigration status.”

Dam those tricky Dems---they's downright diabolical! This is not Rubio’s fault. He was pumping his prez ambitions on Sunday talk shows----visions of voting illegals w/ multiple identities dancing in his head.

Tolerant and compassionate Rubio sobbed when he told America that the immigration bill was "harsh"---that poor illegals would die of old age before they get citizenship. Rubio wrung his hands in despair that those wascally Dems snuck all kinds of funding and stuff into it. (cue graphic of Rubio w/ halo).

LAWS ARE MEANINGLESS TO ETHNIC SOLIDARITY AMERICA-HATERS---Doesn't matter what "ethnic solidarity poison" the lobbyists spoon-feed vote-crazed pols----the poisoners have a secret deal w/ Obomba. As long as O keeps the money rolling in, they will round up the ethnic solidarity votes to keep him and the Dems in power.

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

SEEMS TO ME WE'VE HEARD THIS SONG BEFORE The Rubio/Schumer atrocity sounds more and more like "Violent Lifestyles of the Boston Bombers and Friends."

America welcomed the bomber cabal with open arms---we enabled them w/ student visas (handed out like popcorn). One of the coverup-crew was even let back into the US w/ an expired student visa. We educated them, housed them, fed and clothed them---the feds/state/city showered them w/ freebies----all financed by taxpayers.

The thanks we got was dead, limbless, maimed and wounded Americans. Bostonians had no inkling WRT the bomber's hatred for them and our way of life.

THE ETHNIC SOLIDARITY CABAL HAS ALREADY OUTLINED ITS INTENTIONS---they intend to kill Americans and incite bloody, violent uprisings against 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.

IMMIGRATION REFORM IS THE GATEWAY TO TERRORISM---ETHNIC SOLIDARITY POISON IS BEING FORCED DOWN OUR THROATS "Reform" finances and gives unlimited power to individuals with primitive survival instincts honed in corrupt Third World hellholed where everything is for sale. The survivalist instincts of illegals DO NOT correspond to freedom and democracy----bedrock America principles we consider sacrosanct. To these individual---its all about "what's in it for me, and who do I payoff to get it."

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

Clearly, some (or all) of the reform provisions were written by salivating Third Worlders--and their Fifth Columns on US soil----greedily contemplating exchanging massive foreign aid checks for latino votes.

IMPOVERISHED THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES W/ PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally): 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.

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

THE AYE VOTES FOR AMNESTY WILL NOT COME CHEAP--- WHAT KIND OF FOREIGN FINANCIAL DEALS will vote-crazed US politicians get in exchange for yes votes on amnesty? And who are their co-conspirators?

LET'S LOOK AT THE TAX-EXEMPTS (1) The National Association of Latino Electoral and Appointed Officials, (2) La Raza, (3) Voto Latino, (4) The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, (5) state Hispanic Federations,(6) latino PAC's, etc ,etc, etc (all pushing free-for-all amnesty). These people need to come clean WRT quid pro quo sub deals made with foreign governments.

We need to see their financial records-- copies of (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) bank account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, employment contracts, loan agreements, (8) any other books or records.

Scrutinize n/p bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals, (D) offsore activity. Also lists of monies n/p paid to (a) brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers, and the like.

REFERENCE Taxpayers could then sue banks holding tax-exempt monies that cover-up tax fraud. Under the Bank Secrecy Act passed by Congress, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering, tax evasion, govt fraud and other financial crimes.

“The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the tax-paying public from harm by identifying and detecting criminal enterprises, including those engaged in govt fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering," explains the IRS Criminal Investigation Unit.

Marco Rubio is against cross checking voter registration roles to disqualify felony vote fraud perpetrators from becoming citizens. Felonies on top of felonies are going to be forgiven if Rubio has his way.

Cross the border illegally - OK
Unlawfully receive government subsistence - OK
Steal someone's ID or social security number - OK
Get special privileges for hiring -OK
Get free tuition at state colleges - OK
Register and vote illegally maybe more than once - OK
