Immigration Enforcement

Please sign North Carolina Governor candidate Bill Graham’s petition on Illegal Aliens

We the undersigned call on the General Assembly to do the following immediately:

Whereas, North Carolina has become a mecca for illegal aliens.

And whereas, illegal aliens in North Carolina account for 25 percent of the growth in local school enrollment, crowding our schools, forcing local property taxpayers to build new ones.

And whereas, illegal aliens crowd our jails, get free care in our hospitals, are eligible for food stamps and other social services.

And whereas, the cost of providing education, health care and other social services to illegal aliens amounts to 250 million dollars a year in North Carolina.

And whereas, North Carolina even registers voters in Spanish.

And whereas, there are documented cases of illegal aliens registered to vote in North Carolina.

And whereas, while North Carolina is a welcoming state to immigrants, we are also a nation of laws.

Therefore, be it resolved, we the undersigned, call on the North Carolina Legislature to enact the following steps:

1. No driver’s licenses for illegal aliens

2. Require Voter Identification Cards

3. No access to public benefit programs for illegal aliens

4. Employer Sanctions

5. Make English the true official language of the State of North Carolina

6. End bilingual education in public schools in favor of English transition and immersion

7. Enhance the ability of local law enforcement to apprehend illegal aliens and enforce immigration laws

8. Outlaw Sanctuary City Status: Charlotte, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem

Be it hereby further resolved, that we call on Congress to enact any conforming changes in law that are necessary to stop providing social welfare benefits to illegal aliens and make English the official language.

Gilchrist Of Minutemen Fame Betrays Some Naivette

Posted by Bernard in Illegal Immigration, Politics, GOP, News, Sanctuary Cities, Campaign 2008, DNC Tuesday December 11, 2007 at 3:50 pm

Jim Gilchrist, who founded the Minuteman Project, has come out formally for former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, a GOP contender for the party’s 2008 presidential nomination, reports the Washington Post.

Mike Huckabee, under fire for some of his immigration stands while governor of Arkansas, picked up an endorsement in Council Bluffs, Iowa, from the ultimate illegal immigration opponent: Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, the group that has roamed the border for the last several years operating effectively as an independent border patrol.

Here’s the money quote from the WaPo piece that leaves me shaking my head, both over Mike Huckabee’s unasbashed hucksterism and what appears now to be Jim Gilchrist’s impetuous naivette.

“Frankly, Jim I’ve got to tell you there were times in the early days of the Minutemen I thought what are these guys doing, what are they about,” Huckabee said. “I confess I owe you an apology.” He said of Gilchrist, “nobody can question his commitment to his country.”

Anyone can produce “a plan” with enforcement first appeal. One must look at a candidate’s track record to gain insights as to whether he has a propensity to say one thing and do another. If Kerry was deserving of the flip-flop charcaterization in the 2004 race, certainly Huckabee is deserving now vis-a-vis illegal immigration, as is Mitt Romney. On that basis, seems a little early to lend an endorsement on Huckabee’s perceived stance (should we call it Huckabee’s epiphany?) on border security and internal immigration enforcement. Read More…
