News Roundup

By Greg L | 19 June 2009 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, US Senate | 39 Comments

Connolly votes for terrorists to come to Virginia, billions dollars worth of U.S Treasuries recovered in a smuggling attempt,  and GMU’s director of the Mason Project on Immigration declares GMU is knowingly violating federal law.  Here’s a run-down on a few more interesting stories developing this week…

Connolly Votes For Gitmo Detainees To Come To Virginia

Gerry Connolly voted with Speaker Pelosi on an amendment to allow for funds to close Guantanamo Bay facility and move those detainees to Virginia. Connolly voted against an amendment, offered by Rep. Lewis of California, that would have prohibited the closure.  The amendment failed 212-213.  Should Al-Quaeda terrorists be moved to Virginia, national security experts warn that a terrorist attack to free these prisoners is quite possible.

Billions of U.S. Debt Instruments Discovered at Swiss Border

$134 Billion in U.S. Government bonds, more than the GDP of New Zealand, was discovered in a suitcase belonging to two Japanese men trying to cross the border from Italy to Switzerland.  That would make them the third largest U.S. bondholder after China and Japan, raising significant concerns about whether someone is trying to quietly dump U.S. bonds, an action that would significantly weaken the dollar.  If U.S. bonds are becoming so toxic that cloak-and-dagger efforts are being undertaken to dump them, how in the world are we going to ever get financing for the massive debt the federal government intends to take on with this ridiculous “stimulus” effort?

Time for ICE to Visit George Mason University

This came in this morning from a GMU student:

I’m a student at GMU and have suspected for a while that Mason employs illegals, but only recently received confirmation.  My professor, Debra Lattanzi Shutika (director of the Mason Project on Immigration), proudly stated during one of her soapbox rants that Mason has many “undocumented” employees.

I always love it when a hard-core leftist gets so caught up in their rantings that they admit knowledge of felony violations under federal law, and strongly imply a conspiracy to commit felony violations is happening.  Time for ICE to pay these folks a visit, since the Obama administration is breathless in declaring it’s intent to crack down on the employers of illegal aliens.  Let’s see if they mean it.

    Re the bond caper: I’ve said it before and now it’s even more critical: Buy gold, mis amigos. The rest of you should keep all your money in your mattesses. Within a few years, you can take it all out, and you may have enough to buy a gallon of gas to tote that mattress to the landfill.

    re: GMU hiring illegal aliens. Unfortunately, E-Verify is voluntary and No-Match Letters have been ruled unconstitutional, so determining who is legally authorized and is based on the “Cathy Hudgins” (Fairfax County BOS) document verification method: “They look real enough to me!”

    The only way GMU can be “brought down” as KNOWINGLY hiring illegal aliens is if IRS does an audit, sites the unauthorized workers (by bogus SSN), and then, during a follow-up audit finds some of the workers are still employed.

    In other words, GMU (and just about any business in VA) can hire as many illegal aliens as it wants. With e-verify they will never be held accountable for KNOWINGLY hiring ilelgals.

    Slick, huh?

    And was is even more disappointing - McDonnell is going to travel along the same path as Kaine and protect the rights of businesses to “not knowingly” hire illegal aliens for stimulus and other jobs.

    From the Financial Times:

    “Italian and US secret services working together soon concluded that the [$132 billion dollars worth of US Treasury bonds seized at the Swiss border] and accompanying bank documents were most probably counterfeit, the latest handiwork of the Italian Mafia.

    “[the bonds] are all fraudulent, it’s obvious. We don’t even have paper securities outstanding for that value,’’ said Mckayla Braden, senior adviser for public affairs at the Bureau of Public Debt at the US Treasury department. “This type of scam has been going on for years.’’

    The Treasury has not issued physical Treasury bonds since the 1980s – they are handled electronically – though they still issue savings bonds in paper format.

    Maybe McDonnell will also follow Kaine’s rational that inforcing immigration policy belongs to the Federal Government and not the State. It has been recently reported that Virginia harbors about 500,000 illegal aliens. Kaine’s thinking is to leave them alone as they are only here to care for their families (and rape and murder.)

    Cheetah, The Adm. is now working feverishly to pass CIR. Then - no more illegals for a week or two. It will take that long for the new cycle of illegals to begin pouring into the Country. And, just think of the Agencies and their staffs that deal with immigration and CIR. With a new cycle of illegals invading the Country, the Adm. will have to begin working on a new CIR Program immediately - just no rest for the weary!

    E-Verify should be a permanent part of the arsenal against the illegal immigration invasion. It should be implemented as mandatory and upgraded with modifications and added tools? Their should be no exemptions with the risk of severe penalties. Every workplace should use it, from it’s oldest workers to new hires?

    THE MAJORITY OF–THE PEOPLE–MUST SPEAK UP OR WE SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES?
    The American public are kept in the dark, while secret discussions happen behind closed doors.

    The only way that illegal immigration occupational army will be–ERADICATED–for good, is the paramount overwhelming pressure of public awareness, bearing down on their Senators and Congressman? It will also forcibly remove the nefarious activities of criminals. THE COST TO SUPPORT THESE ILLEGAL PEOPLE IS ASTRONOMIC! Say–YES–to e-verify! It will empty the workplace of illegal labor stealing jobs. Errors can be resolved at the Social Security office, where illegal workers wouldn’t dare to go.

    Tell our corrupted legislators to seal THE BORDER. TELL THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THE BORDER FENCE AND HALT WEAKENING IMMIGRATION LAWS AND STOP PANDERING TO THE OPEN BORDERS, FREE TRADERS AND SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. Say–NO–to any AMNESTY. Outside of this–NOTHING WILL HAPPEN–EXCEPT ANOTHER PRE-ARRANGED AMNESTY, THAT TAXPAYERS WILL GET THE BILL IN INFINITY.

    Tried over and over, but couldn’t find the part of the legislation that said that closing GITMO requires the detainees to come to Virginia. Bet Connolly didn’t know about it either. You just read these things a lot more closely than the rest of us, Greg.

    “No other country incarcerates more people, so we’ve become pretty darn efficient at designing prisons. The feds have a ‘’supermax” facility in Florence, Colo., from which a cockroach couldn’t escape, and there are others.

    Even budget-strapped states like Florida know how to ice the bad guys. Here, the most volatile criminals are housed in garden spots such as the Union Correctional or the Florida State Prison in sunny Raiford.

    According to the state Department of Corrections, exactly zero prisoners escaped from those facilities — or any other high-security prisons — last year. A few knuckleheads snuck away from work camps and road gangs, but almost all were quickly recaptured.

    It’s a safe bet that terror suspects brought to this country wouldn’t be assigned to spear litter in the median of I-95. They would more sensibly be incarcerated 24/7 in the same wing with the lifers — killers, Mafia bosses, street-gang leaders.”

    …but even if GITMO is to be closed (and I quite frankly can’t think of a good reason to do that) why bring ‘em onto the continent or even try to get other countries to take ‘em. Why not just repatriate them to their homeland where they came from?

    Because many of these people were captured in Iraq and Afghanistan, and brought to Gitmo without committing a crime other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Yes, it is easy to say, just execute them - but what are we executing them for? Well, for nothing (in some cases). There are others that do deserve to be executed, but then we should bring them to trail and charge them with offenses - we have thrown Habeas Corpus out the window.

    Our mistake was removing them from Iraq and Afghanistan - which is not the home country to most of these people. Now, we are stuck with them, and must care for them.

    Best thing would be to return them to their home country. Most likely their own governments will take care of the situation. I read the Saudi detainees had filed suit NOT to be returned, they know what awaits them.

    Even if they are brought to trial and found guilty, NONE of them will ever be executed. They will remain in our prison system for the rest of their lives, recruiting more muslems from the gullable prison population, all at taxpayer expense.

    Nope, that’s just the point — these folks didn’t commit a crime. No crime, no accusal of being criminals, no Habeas Corpus, and no trial. They were just trying to kill “our guys” as well as innocent civilians here and there. “Enemy combatants” seems to be a pretty good description of these folks, afterall, huh?

    ”…But even that scenario touches on another weird concern voiced by Obama’s critics — that relocated Guantánamo detainees might secretly attempt to recruit American inmates to the jihadist cause.
    Think about this. Some of the worst bad-asses on the planet now reside in the U.S. prison system. Their geopolitical views have never been of widespread interest or concern, because most of these characters are either sitting on Death Row, or serving multiple life sentences with no chance of parole.
    The best place to put a hardcore al Qaeda guy is in a cell next to, say, a gang banger who’s doing 250 years. If by chance the gang banger falls under the hypnotic spell of his new pal and decides he wants to convert, let him!”

    Looks like some of you guys have figured the whole thing out. It’s obviously an Obama/Hollywood conspiracy to develop a concept and promote a sequel to ConAir. We all know that the Dems are held under the power of Coppola, and Uncle Francis has probably noticed that Nicolas Cage hasn’t had a good movie since!

    Big Dog, there’s been not a peep on that story. The only action that was underway was an internal MPPD investigation about the incident, and surprisingly we haven’t heard anything about that investigation. Dominquez never filed even an official complaint about the issue.

    There was also a State police investigation that took place. Someone ought to find out what the true story behind the story is. Is the “victim” still in the country or MP? It’s the same non-story as the State police officer who was accused of throwing an illegal, drunk teenager off of a bridge on I-95 a couple of years ago. Kid was handcuffed and in back to trooper’s car, got out of the car and jumped to his death. Big uproar saying police officer threw him off the bridge. Story ended there with nary a follow-up as to what an investigation found. Too many of these type stories are hyped by the press, TV and radio. They make a lot of noise, make allegations and then the story is never heard again. Anyone out there know “the rest of the story” on these situations?

    If Urkel “decides” to release them, wouldn’t that mean that they’re, you know, innocent? In case you hadn’t noticed, that’s the way the Justice System works. Someone gets accused of something, they get chucked in jail, and the courts sort out whether or not they get released.

    Note: Just because someone is ensconced in GITMO doesn’t necessarily mean they’re guilty of anything. If you’ll recall, the US made the astoundingly stupid decision to say to people in a country where hundreds of years old blood feuds (over who stole whose goat) are not uncommon, “Hey, guys, feel free to turn in any terrorists to us.” And then, some primitive screwhead whose next door neighbor’s great-great-granddaddy once swiped a bag of dates goes, “Uh, yeah, Abdul there is totally a terrorist. He hates America and stuff,” and off Abdul goes to GITMO.

    So again, I fail to see why this should concern me. But then, I actually bother to read lots of news sources rather than just drooling in front of Fox “News”.

    Dave in PWC,
    I’ve also asked our local paper to investigate and simply
    tell us what happened with the Aqueda Dominquez case. Was it
    dropped, settled out of court or what? I’ve often been critical of
    this blog and others, liberal and conservative, of Palovian responses
    to events before the facts are known. But someone
    has to be the “honest broker” and provide us with that
    information. By default, that is the MJM, short staffed and decrepit
    as it has become. ( Ideally the MPPD would have investigated,
    if a formal charge was made, and reported the results to the
    community but that isn’t how Manassas Park operates apparently).
    This became a high profile public issue when Ms. Dominquez
    took it to the media and then helped organize a protest
    march of hundreds (signs, banners, and some “suffering with
    the victim” by going barefoot with max publicity - TV, DC papers,etc.)
    The procession went from MP, through Manassas City (with a
    a taxpayer paid MCPD escort) to the PWC Courthouse for a
    candlelight vigil.
    And now, after more than four months, nothing.
    What is the rest of this story?

    Thanks for the info and the update on the Dominguez case. It’s sad that our local newspaper can’t give us this information. I wonder if the internal investigation has already been concluded and if they found nothing wrong that they didn’t announce it, if they found something wrong I’m sure that we’d all know about it, the WaPo wouldn’t let this go without another sob story for the poor immigrant.
