Illegal Aliens "R" Us

Toys "R" Us, Inc. recently awarded a $25,000 prize to the "winner" of a New Year's Baby contest -- and then they had to withdraw the award when it became clear the the baby was born to a mother and father living in the United States illegally. According to a Toys "R" Us spokeswoman, the contest "eligibility rules required babies' mothers to be legal residents."

But then the pro-illegal alien, anti-sovereignty, open-borders crowd started screaming.

And Toys "R" Us buckled, awarded the $25,000 to the illegal alien family, and basically sent the message that Toys "R" Us sweepstakes rules don't matter in the slightest. Read all about it here, on

Now, we all should play EVERY contest offered by Toys "R" Us and break any sweepstakes rule necessary to assure a win. When we are disqualified, simply threaten a lawsuit. By their own actions, it's clear that rules apparently mean nothing.

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who understands immigration and demographics that the first child born on 2007 was to an illegal immigrant. This has a huge negative economic impact on taxpayers. For example, in San Diego, a report was quietly released last Spring which shows that over 40% of births requiring Medi-Cal funded deliveries (read: California taxpayer-funded deliveries) were to illegal aliens. This is an 18% increase from just 2001! State-wide, the cost to taxpayers for "free" birthing is over $400 million, annually. Where will we be in 5 more years? If our borders remain wide-open, we should expect huge increases -- Why give birth in Mexico if the American taxpayer is willing to foot the bill? Read a report, here.

Of course, one important part of the story remains unknown: Where the hell is Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)? This news has spread across the country. But is ICE listening? Will they do their job and deport the federal law-breaking Toys "R" Us parents?

Don't hold your breath. They're not "terrorists" but are simply taking jobs from legal immigrants and citizens while lowering wages. That's not something that concerns the feds....

After reading the CNN article, call Toys "R" Us and voice your concern: at 973-617-3500.

Hasta la vista, Middle Class

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon propose that all children in California, including those in the state illegally, be guaranteed medical insurance as part of his "health-care overhaul," reports the Los Angeles Times.

The program would help at least 763,000 children and would cost the State of California (read, taxpayers) at least $400 million a year.

While the cost is steep, this program is a stepping stone to Schwarzenegger's larger plan: providing "free" health care to all people living uninsured in California. According to the Times, this larger plan would cost California taxpayers at least $10 BILLION a year.

The Times notes that "6.5 million Californians" are currently living without insurance. Of course, the Times errs in calling all of these individuals "Californians" -- what the Times does not mention is that there are about 3 million illegal aliens living in California. Perhaps half of the 6.5 million is made up of people who are citizens of a foreign nation.

The result: California taxpayers are paying for the failings of foreign governments that are happy to push their poverty north.

Californians already spend billions a year paying for illegal aliens in the form of public education, emergency medical treatment, prisons, etc. The economic and social impact of illegal immigration is narrow, however. California's poor don't pay taxes while the State's limousine liberals live in gated communities, send their children to private schools, and have financial advisers who shield their millions from the California Treasury.

It's middle class Californians who hand huge portions of their paychecks to the bureaucrats in Sacramento who seem bent on welcoming more and more foreign poverty in to the State. But this will not last indefinitely. The middle class is leaving California in droves to escape the onslaught of illegal immigration and ever-escalating tax rates. If things continue along the same path, we will see a return to the feudal state in California.

Only the wealthy will be able to afford to remain in California and the middle class will be completely replaced with a permanent, poverty-level class. It's a great setup for society's elites which is why our political leadership isn't trying to close our open borders. This is the new feudal society and it's coming to a state near you.

Mr. President, Don't Defund That Wall!

The New Year brings us a "bipartisan" effort of tearing down the will of the American Public. Too many talking heads on CNN and FoxNews were tricked into believing that President Bush's signature on the "Border Fence Bill" indicated that the President would actually secure the U.S. southern border once and for all. Those who follow the immigration debate closely knew that President Bush signed it begrudgingly with no actual intent to impede the flow of cheap labor into the country. He signed it because he knew a veto would make his open-border policy all too clear.

But just because he signed it doesn't mean he has to enforce it.

And like so many non-enforced immigration laws, the President is working with the Democratic leadership to make sure that the "Border Fence Bill" stays on paper.

Recent news hints at the all too real effort to "defund" the Border Fence Bill:

"But lately, there's been talk of a bipartisan coalition in Congress that could approve an immigration bill that gives illegal immigrants a path to legal residency and perhaps even defund 700 miles of border fencing approved in the last session." -- Ruben Navarrette Jr. (here, on CNN).


"A group of Republican and Democrat lawmakers, including Senators John McCain, R-Ariz., and Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., said last week that they were drafting new legislation that could possibly deny funding to the border fence, as well as provide for an easier path to citizenship than the original Senate bill..." (here, at the Miami Herald, 1/1/07).

One would think that a President would demand Congress provide funding for a bill he just signed into law. But that assumption rests on a belief that a President actually wants the bill to become a reality. However, President Bush is happy to see this bipartisan effort at erasing our national sovereignty. There's every reason to believe that the President is behind this effort.

Unfortunately, on the issue of illegal immigration and border security, the leadership in both parties is identical. It is clear that elites want more cheap labor (and bigger profits) and political ideology need not get in the way. It's also clear that the American Public is united in a desire to end illegal immigration. Unfortunately, this perspective divide will continue until we elect a statesman or stateswoman to the White House. Pandering, open-border politicians must become a thing of the past if we are ever to secure our sovereignty.

FOLLOW UP: As of December 2007, the Democrat Congress (with Bush's support, no doubt) is working to completely eliminate the "Secure Fence Act of 2006." Hoping that you won't notice, Congress is trying to swap an inferior single fence for the double fence mandated in the Act. Read all about it in the most recent post, available here.
