Immigrants wait, hope, plan for Obama order

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Immigrants in the country illegally already are flooding attorneys’ offices with calls to see if they can qualify under President Barack Obama’s yet-to-be-announced plan to shield as many as 5 million immigrants from deportation.

Obama said he’ll reveal the long-awaited order on Thursday. Alex Galvez, an immigration lawyer in Los Angeles, said he’s going to need to add phone lines to keep up with the demand. Orange County, California-based immigration lawyer Annaluisa Padilla said she’s getting twice as many calls as usual since buzz intensified over the plan, which would also grant the immigrants work permits.

“It’s like the golden ticket,” she said. “Everybody who is calling my office is asking how can I get a work permit under Obama’s program? I am like, there is no Obama program yet.”

Obama is expected to take executive action to protect many of the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally from deportation after Congress failed to pass an immigration overhaul. Republicans are vehemently opposed to the president’s likely actions, with some conservative members threatening to pursue a government shutdown if he follows through on his promises to act on immigration before the end of the year.

While Obama has yet to reveal the details of his administrative order, immigrant advocates are gearing up to help millions determine if they are eligible to apply and steer them clear of fraudulent consultants and so-called notarios, who have been known to take immigrants’ money and promise to deliver even when they don’t qualify for benefits.

Immigrant advocacy groups in Southern California are planning workshops to inform community members about the order, including a 12,000-person forum at the Los Angeles Convention Center in mid-December, said Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a spokesman for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.

The New Mexico Immigrant Law Center is planning a to start a text messaging system targeting immigrants across the state, especially those in rural areas where legal services might not be easily accessible. Immigrant advocates in Florida are planning the same, and will also start a hotline in English and Spanish to keep community members informed.

In New York, immigration lawyers and nonprofits are preparing to hold clinics to help screen immigrants for the program.

Mayra Gallegos, a 33-year-old mother of two and trained nurse, is pinning her hopes on Obama’s plan. She came from Mexico a decade ago to join her husband, who has since gotten a green card. Her younger son was born here, and is an American. But she and her elder son have not been able to get their papers.

“What Obama is going to do, if he does it, would really help me and my son,” said Gallegos, who hopes to find a job as a nurse should she receive a work permit. “We’re always watching to see if there’s any news.”

But some advocates warned immigrants not to get their hopes up yet — especially with lawmakers threatening to thwart Obama’s plan.

“What I am telling my families to do is be prepared for war. We’re going to see a legislative arm do whatever they can to stop the president,” said Jessica Dominguez, an immigration attorney in Southern California. “I am not going to let my community be saddened again by words. We need action.”

Rep. Luis Gutierrez: No Government Money Will Be Spent on Illegals

Capture

November 19, 2014 9:03 am Invasion U.S.A.

(Newsmax) – Republicans need not worry about tax dollars being spent on implementing President Barack Obama’s planned “executive amnesty” says a Democratic congressman.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois said Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” he believes the 3 million-5 million affected by the order would have to pay for background checks and any other expense associated with being granted legal status.

Gutierrez said he believes Obama will require applicants to have been in the United States 5-10 years and have children who are American citizens. Those who pass background checks will get a work authorization for two years and a Social Security card, he said.

But Gutierrez disagreed with host Bill O’Reilly that they eventually would be granted citizenship.

“There is no citizenship. The president has no authority. Only through an act of Congress can they ever be granted citizenship,” Gutierrez insisted.

At that point, the government will be free to pursue “the really bad guys” and deportations will continue, he said.

O’Reilly expressed skepticism at that, saying the Obama administration isn’t going after criminals now. They are deported and then come right back into the country, he said.

Gutierrez said those affected would not be allowed to sign up for welfare, food stamps and housing benefits. He cited the 800,000 “DREAMers” who were made legal in June 2012 who can’t get Pell Grants to go to college.

O’Reilly warned that once executive amnesty is signed a flood of new immigrants will be crossing the border. And some of those already here will simply not pay the fees and become legal, essentially staying in the same situation they are in now.

How Obama’s Amnesty Will Become Citizenship

Capture

November 19, 2014

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: This is Luis Gutierrez. He’s a Democrat in Chicago. He was on The O’Baxter Factor last night, and the question: “It’s interesting. The people who have children who are American citizens who’ve been here between five and 10 years — they submit a fingerprint, do background check on ‘em, and, if they’re clean — they can stay and get working papers, and get on the books, and then citizenship is right down the road.”

GUTIERREZ: There is no citizenship! The president has no authority. Only through an act of Congress can they ever be granted citizenship.

O’BAXTER: Okay.

GUTIERREZ: Think of it this way. Here’s how I look at it. It’s like he’s gonna set them aside and say, “I’m not gonna prosecute these people.”

Capture

RUSH: Right. So here’s how this works. So O’Baxter there says, “And eventually, Luis, they’re gonna get citizenship, right?” “Oh, noooo, no, no, no, no! No, no, noooo. You misunderstand! There is no citizenship. The president has no authority. Only through an act of Congress can…” Luis, do you understand what you’re saying here? He has no authority to do what he’s gonna do, either!

He has no authority to grant this pardon, unless they call it that. That would be interesting, if they call this a pardon. If the president wants to pardon five million illegals. But they’re not calling it that. They’re saying, “We’re suspending deportation.” Everybody knows what’s going on here. They are being granted amnesty. For Gutierrez to say, “No, no! The president has no authority to grant citizenship.”

You know how this works? Here’s exactly what’s gonna happen. A short period of time after this action is taken — and it will be “a short period of time.” It isn’t gonna take very long. It will happen next year. But let’s say all this happens on Friday. Obama… By the way, what do you think is gonna come first, the grand jury decision in Ferguson or Obama announcing amnesty on Friday? What do you think’s gonna happen first?

Or do you think they’re gonna happen at the same time? We’re gonna get the grand jury decision and then we’re gonna have a rebirth of the Sixties civil rights era. In fact, they’re out there selling it that way. You have John Lewis and all these guys, “It’s gonna be Selma all over again!” They’re so excited about it. They’re excited about the grand jury coming down to Ferguson with a no-true bill, meaning no indictment.

They’re excited about that. They are promoting this thing. They want there to be no indictment of the cop. They want to be able to riot in the streets. They want to be able to reenact Selma. They want to reenact the civil rights battles of the sixties. It’s amazing! They all want to go back to the good old days. They all want to go back to the nostalgic good old days where they made their bones and relive it and do it all over again.

I got audio sound bites to prove this.

So here’s Obama going to Vegas. He’s gonna announce amnesty, whatever, on Friday. And in St. Louis, the civil rights groups have put out this list of targets that they want the protestors to hit. They are businesses and industries that have nothing to do with what happened in Ferguson, like Anheuser-Busch, like Emerson Electric. (That’s a big power company there.) It’s a long list. It’s a riot list.

“These are the targets. Here’s a place to go! Set this on fire, blow up that place, whatever.” (laughing) It’s right out in the open, right out in front of us. So the question is: Do we get split screen of this on Friday, a slow news day, and then maybe will Ray Rice’s suspension be lifted and it be announced he can play in the NFL? Whether anybody will pick him up or not’s another thing.

Okay. What time will Obama announce amnesty on Friday? Okay, he’s gonna be in Vegas. So that puts him on Pacific time. So he’s not gonna do it before the program ends. So three p.m. Eastern’s noon there. He’s just getting to work, on a normal day. I would say he’s gonna time this to ruin as many Friday nights as he can. Maybe earlier in the day, the grand jury in Ferguson will reveal whatever they’re going to reveal.

Oh, man, the left is so excited, folks! They got a twofer coming up here. I mean, it is the good old days. They’re gonna actually bring the sixties back to life and reenact and redo everything. The same old people that were doing it back in the sixties are gonna find themselves in Ferguson and in St. Louis. Anyway, what’s gonna happen here when Obama does this whenever he does it on Friday.

Luis Gutierrez here says, “No, no. There is no citizenship. Only through an act of Congress can they ever be granted citizenship.” Which makes me laugh. Only through an act of Congress can they get citizenship? Well, only through an act of Congress can Obama do what he’s gonna do, but he’s gonna do it anyway without one.

So what’s gonna happen sometime soon, next year — it won’t be long — Chuck Schumer or some other prominent Democrat will miraculously appear before microphones and cameras, and he’ll have a look of pained suffering on his face, and he’ll say that he’s very conflicted. He’s still joyous and celebratory and happy over the fact that we, via President Obama’s executive action, have opened the doors of our country to five million of the greatest people in the world.

“But what were we thinking when we did not grant them citizenship? What good is allowing them to stay here legally if they can’t vote? What kind of country are we? What has happened to us? How, on the one hand, could we grant them permanent permission to stay in our country, and at the same time deny them the most valuable right, the most precious right that our citizens have — and that is the right to vote?

“How in the world could we have denied that? What were we thinking?” So the effort will be launched to grant them citizenship, and if the Republicans oppose it — which they won’t — then Obama will come back and do another executive action claiming, “Well, Reagan did it, and Bush did it.”

This is all about six months from now. And the New York Times has a story here today. It’s the same thing. “Obama’s Executive Order on Immigration –” Wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Hold it. Did the New York Times not get the memo? This is not an executive order. Because Reagan didn’t do an executive order. Reagan didn’t do any executive action. What do you mean, executive order? That’s not what this is. Well, it is, you know. But the AP, the Drive-Bys are trying to tell us this is what Reagan did. Anyway, the headline of the New York Times piece: “Obama’s Executive Order on Immigration Is Unlikely to Include Health Benefits.”

Now, you can’t convince me Jonathan Gruber’s not somewhere in this story. How stupid do they think we are? We’re gonna grant amnesty, but it doesn’t contain citizenship, and it doesn’t contain health care? (laughing) Right. How stupid do they think we are? No health benefits, no health insurance, no citizenship. We’re just gonna grant them temporary amnesty against deportation. So it’s gonna be the same drill. After this happens, a short time later, Chuck Schumer will be back at the microphones, after crying over the fact that we forgot to make them citizens.

He’ll do it again. He’ll say, “What kind of country are we? What were we thinking? This shows just how much farther we have to go to be a good people, to be a good country. What were we thinking? Five million people who have worked and struggled and have been separated from their families, and they’ve paid taxes, and they’ve made this country what it is, and we are denying them health care benefits? Who in the hell do we think we are? How did this travesty happen?” And the move will be on to grant them health care benefits and citizenship within six months of Obama’s executive action. You know it and I know it.

Gutierrez: I May Run for President if No Amnesty by Thanksgiving

Capture

While Rep. Luis Gutierrez’s (D-IL) main concern right now is preparing for executive amnesty, he told reporters Friday that any further delays from administrative action on immigration could lead him to consider a Democratic primary challenge.

“Let me put this presidential thing in context. There are activists throughout the country that are circulating petitions asking that I run for President of the United States. I assure you I would file my FEC reports, which I have not. If you go to my website you will see what I am preparing for is for registering people for administrative relief that is my focus and my energy,” Gutierrez said when asked about recent reports that he is considering a presidential run.

“If I feel the president and vis-à-vis Democrats are delaying this action, come Thanksgiving I would have to make a decision on whether or not there should be a serious challenge in the Democratic primary to raise the issue,” he said.

Gutierrez argued that the immigrant community is frustrated with the politicization of the issue and the recent delay in action, specifically at the end of the summer.

“No more delays,” he stressed.

Chicago parents shocked over fifth grade sex ed curriculum (Video)

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 10.33.57 AM

By Renee Nal

A graphic sexual education curriculum meant for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) fifth and sixth graders shocked parents during a presentation given during “report card pickup “at the Andrew Jackson Language Academy, as reported at DNA Info.

The presentation included slides that are clearly not age appropriate, and include “demonstrations” of applying male and female condoms (FC).

While CPS spokesman Bill McCaffrey said in a statement that the “objectionable material presented at Andrew Jackson Language Academy this week is not and never was part of the student sexual education curriculum” as reported at the local NBC affiliate, the slides shown to parents are also posted at Waters Elementary School as part of the “Sexual Health Education” curriculum for “Grade 6.”

Links to K-8 sex ed lessons can be found here. It should be noted that Waters elementary indicates that they “opted out” of the condom demonstrations, which adds to speculation that the demonstrations were indeed a part of the curriculum.
Fifth and sixth graders are also assured that the “morning after pill” is “NOT an abortion pill,” and that “Youth 12 years of age or older can receive sexual health and reproductive services without parental consent.” The female condom seems to be particularly relevant to the presentation, as there are a considerable number of slides dedicated to this particular form of birth control.
Some of the praise lavished on the FC is that it can be inserted “hours before vaginal sex, so you don’t have to interrupt foreplay to be safe!” The FC, according to the presentation, is great for “Women, men, transgender folk,” and you can use if you are “gay” or “straight.”
Some screenshots of some of the graphic slides (Page 42 is too graphic to be shown here):
