Obama calls for cuts to federal subsidy that helps states jail illegal immigrants
The Hill ^ | 2/1/10 | Silla Brush

For the second year in a row, President Barack Obama wants to end a subsidy that helps states jail illegal immigrants.

The State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) provides a partial subsidy to help states and local communities incarcerate illegal aliens who have committed crimes. The administration proposed on Monday ending the program to save $400 million in 2010.

The administration said that the program money has been "unfocused" and "can be used for any correctional-related purpose." When he was in the Senate, Obama voted in favor of additional funding for the program.

Killing off the program has been tough on Capitol Hill, where many border state lawmakers have supported the subsidy.

The office of Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.), who has fought cuts to SCAAP, says that the funding level in this budget is not cut, but will remain at the same level as in the last budget.

Nonetheless, the administration said that it would take the savings and redirect the money towards border enforcement efforts.

Of course, this is a logically razor sharp move. They can’t vote if they are physically in jail!

0bama wants more illegal criminals out on the streets raping and murdering people. Unfortunately, criminals who are residents are too easily tracked down.

Liberals have no brains.

“Liberals have no brains”

either that, or they have become so corrupt, they really couldn’t give a damn about the real issues in society & their effects on other people any more.

Real Hope and Change for Criminal Illegal Aliens

Obama's purpose is to remove the only incentive for state and local prisons to identify criminal illegals in their custody.

If federal funds are not provided for incarcerated criminal illegals, why should the states and localities bother to identify them?

If state & local prisons don't identify them to the feds, then rather than being deported after serving their time they will be released to the streets.

Obama's just trying is giving criminal illegals a second chance at life of crime in the US... and he'll try again!

Pres Bush, and now Pres Obama, have been secretly working to integrate the US and Mexico into a common political and economic unit. “It is unfortunate that Mexico got off to such a bad start,” said Glenn Spencer of the American Patrol Report,” but it is wrong to sacrifice the United States of America to correct problems south of the border.”

Spencer said Mexicans are being besieged by drug volence, murdered and beheaded, which is nothing new for them, but Americans are being betrayed by a government that refuses to protect them.

Under Comprehensive Immigration Reform (Cong Guiterrez' bill w/ 92 sponsors) prove they have jobs and were in the country before Congress passed amnesty, illegals are allowed to use stolen ID's, fake green cards, and fraudulent SS numbers without fear of prosecution. Guiterrez' bill will make it much easier for more illegal aliens to break in.

Mexico facilitates the profitable staging area for global illegals to cross the border. Contrary to Obama’s claim that CIR will increase border security, it does just the opposite.........

<> it guts successful enforcement measures,

<>limits raids on illegal immigrants,

<> prohibits use of troops on the border,

<> replaces E-Verify used to ensure employers hire legal American workers,

<> overturns all state and local US laws that crackdown on illegal immigration,

<> abolishes 287 (g) that allow local L/E and federal authorities to apprehend criminal illegals.


CREATING DEM VOTING BLOCS On top of the millions of illegals in the US, 1.5 million legal foreign workers come in each year. But this number isn’t high enough for Dem Cong Gutierrez and his co-sponsors. Their Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill includes a provision called “recapture” that will add up all the supposedly “unused” work visas since 1992 and issue them immediately. This is a complete fraud, as all unused work visas are rolled over to the family reunification category the next year. According to the State Department, this will mean 550,000 new foreign workers.


The Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill will create 100,000 visas from countries that send the most illegal immigrants every year. Mexico is the staging area for Third World and other illegals preparing to violate our borders. Comprehensive Immigration Reform rewards Mexico b/c they calculatedly promote illegal immigration.

QUOTING FORMER CONG TOM TANCREDO (R-Colo) “Juan Hernandez headed up the Mexican govt agency, "Ministry of Mexicans Living in the United States. Hernandez is a dual citizen of the United States and Mexico, and a good friend of then-presidents Bush and Mexico's Vicente Fox (and was presidential candidate John McCain's Hispanic outreach man)."

Hernandez explained to Cong Tancredo the purpose of the Mexican government agency "Ministry of Mexicans Living in the United States:"

(1) to increase the flow of Mexican nationals to the United States..... (2) to serve Mexico’s needs......... (3) to increase remittances to Mexico of $50 billion a year (30% of the Mexican GDP); (4) to get US jobs for an exploding Mexican population, alleviating social instability due to rising unemployment; (5) to get free US training for Mexicans, who are expected to return and repatriate those skills back to Mexico.

Hernandez supports amnesty: "By populating the United States with millions of Hispanics tied economically, politically and linguistically to Mexico, we are able to exert enormous influence and pressure on US policy and its dealings with Mexico." SOURCE

NOTE: " Exerting enormous influence and pressure on US policy and its dealings with Mexico" means extorting billions of US tax dollars to subsidize corrupt Third World federales.


We need to see audits of all these latino agitator groups as well as Guiterrez' cell phone records and emails to gauge when these agitators get their orders from Third World governments.....and to determine the extent Third World government's are subsidizing the rigging of US laws for their gain.
