OUTRAGE: Bush’s Chao Helps Illegals Get Paid; ICE Princess/Chertoff Do Nothing

You know all those show-arrests of illegal alien employees and employers, last week? Well, apparently, Bush’s Labor Secretary Elaine Chao doesn’t want anything to do with them.
In fact, today’s Wall Street Journal reports that Chao’s department is helping illegal alien employees of Katrina contractors to get paid for their work. The headline says it all: “Illegal Immigrants’ New Ally on Katrina Pay: the Government.”
Yup, our tax dollars are paying for our government to help illegal aliens get more money from our government. No strings attached.

Bush, Elaine Chao, Chertoff: Screw You, America

When we say “no strings attached,” we mean that the illegals have no conditions put on the money (like, say, the condition that they voluntarily am-scray from the country, as in “voluntarily deport”). And Ms. Chao’s employees have no intention of turning them over to ICE–Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Bush Labor Department to America: Screw You
Victoria Lipnic, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employment Standards, a Bush political appointee subject to Senate confirmation when Bush nominated her, gives America a giant F-U:

If you work, you must get paid. Whether they are documented or not documented is not within our jurisdiction.

In other words,

Hey America, Not MY Problem. It’s yours, you know–you fools who pay my salary and aren’t demanding the Prez give me my walking papers.

If Bush were really serious about the illegal alien problem–and he isn’t–he would publicly excoriate this woman and fire her. That would say a heck of a lot more than the phony mass show-arrests with resulting catch-and-release afterward.
And he would have words with Chao, too. According to the Wall St. Journal, a spokeswoman for her department
said that the agency doesn’t collect information on workers’ immigration status when they intervene on their behalf with employers. So it doesn’t know how many of the 241,000 workers it helped nationwide in the 2005 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, were illegal immigrants.
Of course not. That’s by design–the design of not wanting to really arrest these people. But the Labor Dept. does send Spanish speaking agents to help them “to show that Labor Department agents on are the job.” And what is the job again? Oh, yeah, helping illegal aliens courtesy of the taxpayer.
Where are Julie Myers and Michael Chertoff?
If and had any real intention to start going after employers, they would ask the President to demand that Chao’s department start collecting the records on the immigration status of these Katrina workers. And if Bush had any real intention to stop the illegal alien problem, he would demand that Chao do so and give it to Myers/Chertoff. But, truth be told, none of these parties has any such intent at all. Or demand that the departments send joint teams of agents.
Don’t count on that to happen. Ever. They just don’t give a whit.

I feel betrayed for voting for the guy. I know the Democrats are doing the same, but this is treason.

I don’t know what it is with the Bush family. Sometimes I get the feeling that I voted in the presidential elections of Mexico in 2000 and 2004.
This reminds me of that “enlightened” statement by Jesse Jerkson in 2000: “Stay out the Bushes!”
Shut the door and turn out the lights…it’s all over, people.

We need a new party. One that’s somewhere in between the two evils of Republicans and Democrats. One that cares (really) about the law abiding sitizens of this country. This good old boy network is making me sick. By the way, I say they don’t give a rat’s ass. Forget whit.

In the words of Rodney King “Can’t we all just get along?” Well, on a tiny or individual scale, and where all parties agree to all the rules, yes, I think we can. Just one tiny little problem though; it doesn’t work on a large or general scale. It never has. Such reasoning defies the logic of observable human behavior. Even in Ireland where you had the same people that differ primarily between Catholics and Protestants, there were deadly problems. One would also think that the Muslim nations could just let Israel have that little 15-mile-wide strip of land for their own. But no, they must be killed!
History shows quite clearly that the only way we can get along multiculturally is when the smaller groups follow the rules set by the larger group. When the smaller groups begin to reach parity in numbers or political power with the larger group, then the fun begins. Rivers of blood begin to flow.
It would be so nice if we all could just get along, if all people were just the same — equal in every way. But that’s not reality. People who think this way are ripe for domination. Human beings have irreconcilable differences. We are unique. We are not all the same.
I single President Bush out on our illegal immigration problem because he is the leader of our nation and he should know these things. I also blame the business community. A pure form of capitalism will not work beyond the borders of a single nation. Limits must be placed on their greed which is the source of this fire. Now we have BOTH parties in congress selling us out. We have told them what we want and apparently they are going to ignore that. But they don’t have to live with the consequences of their own actions — we do. If we don’t stop this insanity now then maybe not us, but our children are going to suffer for all this.

Somebody needs to get on TV and say “George Bush doesn’t care about American people.”

Am I the only reader here to have just found out about this?? Who said this:
“We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. The explosion is in our population…”
This statement was made by Jose Angel Gutierrez, a political science professor at the University of Texas at Arlington, with regard to the illegal alien issue. That’s right, our public tax dollars at work. He loves molding the minds of young college students. He also said:
“I believe that the first illegal aliens in Texas were Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Jim Bowie, and thousands of other criminals.”
“Mexico lost these lands we now call Texas and the Southwest in wars of aggression fought by the US in the early to mid-1800s. Political control over these lands transferred over to the US and our problems began. Overnight we were made illegal and unwanted in our own homelands. That is still the case today.”
Please President Bush, PAY ATTENTION.

I said it in the past and people accused me of being a conspiracy theorist, but I was correct. The Republican party we all know and love as well as competed against is no longer the party of the people with smaller government. This Neo-Con faction is aligned with the Neo-Libs and are taking our rights and taxes for themselves. We do need a new party and I don’t mean Libertarians but Americans

I agree that we desperately need a new “political party”. One who is responsive to the needs of the majority of its citizens. Currently, we have elected self-serving, self absorbed fools who have no interest in the voice of their people.
They treat us like mildly retarded children who “don’t understand the complexities of national security”. What’s not to understand — our borders (or lack thereof) allow ANYONE to sneak in and Congress won’t do a darn thing about it. I understand that very well.
My people fought wars with the original immigrants and we lost. We assimilated without losing all of our culture. We are proud of who we are — AMERICAN INDIANS (the word American comes first)in America.
I believe that it’s time to clean out Congress – send a clear message to any incumbent that their gravy train just hit a wall.

Appreciate your comments Cheyenne Woman.

You people are racist idiots. Sorry life’s not working out for you.
