Romney Appoints Hazleton Defender Kris Kobach To Advisor On Immigration

Posted in 2008, America, Border Security, deportation, Economy, identification requirements, illegal aliens, illegal immigration, Invaders, John McCain, Juan Hernandez, Kris Kobach, Law Enforcement, lawbreakers, Politics, Romney, Sovereignty, Tancredo, taxpayers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S.-Mexico border, Voters on February 2, 2008 by americanchaos

By Digger

I am absolutely stunned. After wondering for months about how serious Romney was on tackling illegal immigration and the strange endorsement of Tom Tancredo after dropping out of the race, Romney has issues the coup de grace. Mitt Romney has appointed Immigration Warrior Kris Kobach to his advisory staff.

Kris Kobach

Who is Kris Kobach? Well you may remember Kris as the lead attorney in defending Hazleton, Pennsylvania‘s Illegal Immigration Relief Act. Kris has been a leader in the fight against illegal immigration in this country and his addition to the Romney team shows that he is deadly serious about ending illegal immigration.I’m telling you, I’m sitting here just absolutely stunned. That is how unforeseen this was to me.

After this appointment, I see no way that I cannot at least support Romney’s immigration stance now. Before it was all words. As for Romney’s other positions, well that’s up to you to judge.

This in from The Carden Chronicles

For those that are not familiar with Professor Kobach, he is a noted Immigration expert, Professor Of Law And Head Of The Kansas Republican Party.In 1996, Professor Kobach joined the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law (UMKC) faculty.

In 2001, he was awarded a White House Fellowship serving in the office of U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. There he would serve as the Attorney General’s chief adviser on immigration law and border security. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Kobach was charged with the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) efforts to tighten border security and implement the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System.

Before leaving DOJ in 2003, he led the reform of the immigration court system. Professor Kobach has litigated a number of high-profile immigration lawsuits including representing the city of Hazleton, Pennsylvania.

He is a Senior Counsel at the Immigration Reform Law Institute. At the Law School, he teaches Constitutional law and immigration law.

Absolutely stunned.

Contrast this with McCain’s disgusting appointment of Juan Hernandez as his Hispanic Outreach Director discovered a few days ago.

For more on Kris Kobach read my extensive day by day coverage of the Hazleton trial from March 2007.

Thanks to Matt Carden for the tip.

Tancredo Assails Stimulus Package “Giveaway” to Illegal Aliens

Posted in Economy, Illegal Alien, illegal aliens, illegal immigration, income tax, lawbreakers, Stimulus Package, Tancredo, Taxes, taxpayers, Tom Tancredo, U.S. Government on January 30, 2008 by americanchaos

Bill would dole out millions of dollars to illegals
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) today criticized the tax package passed by the Tom Tancredo Democrat-controlled Congress as a giveaway to illegal aliens. The package, among other shortcomings, would direct the Internal Revenue Service to issue checks of up to $600 to individuals and $1,200 to married couples, as well as rebates for any children. The legislation does not, however, contain any provision barring illegal aliens from taking advantage of these benefits.

“This package will stimulate one thing for certain: more illegal immigration,” said Tancredo. “It’s just the latest unfortunate example of American workers footing the bill for illegal aliens.”

The bill would allow so-called “Resident Aliens” to receive rebate checks. The Treasury department classifies someone as a “Resident Alien” based on how much time that person has spent in the United States. No proof of legal presence, however, is required. The IRS’ explanation of the term can be found at: http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc851.html

“Worse, a large portion of this money will just be sent back to the home countries of illegal aliens,” concluded Tancredo. “So it might stimulate someone’s economy – just not ours.”

The bill was considered under a procedure in the House of Representatives that did not allow for any opportunity to amend the bill to restrict payments to illegal aliens.

Congress Poised to Give Tax Rebates to Illegal Aliens
Call Your Senators Now!

January 30, 2008

The economic stimulus package traveling through Congress right now does nothing to stop the IRS from issuing rebate checks to illegal aliens. Please call your Senators now and urge them to take action!

Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed H.R.5140, the economic stimulus package, by a vote of 385-35. As many of you have already learned from news outlets, the economic package includes tax rebates of $600 for individual taxpayers and $1,200 for couples. However, this package—thrown together within days—allows the IRS to send tax rebate checks to illegal aliens!

The issue stems from defining who is eligible for a tax rebate. In drafting H.R.5140, Congress left gaping loopholes. Section 101 excludes “nonresident aliens” from being eligible, but this is essentially meaningless as the IRS does not determine whether an individual is a “nonresident alien” based on his or her immigration status. Moreover, it does not address the eligibility of illegal aliens who send in tax returns using stolen or false social security numbers.

At a minimum, the IRS should be required to screen the numbers (whether individual taxpayer identification numbers (ITINs) or social security numbers (SSNs)) used to issue the checks to ensure they match the name of the taxpayer in question. If a name and number do not match, the IRS should be prohibited from issuing a tax rebate check. Senator John Ensign (R-NV) has filed an amendment to affect this change, but we do not know whether he will even be allowed to offer it.

H.R.5140 is now in the Senate and will go through the Senate Finance Committee this afternoon. From there, Senate staffers indicate it will go quickly to the floor. PLEASE TAKE ACTION NOW!

We urge all FAIR members, activists and friends to call their Senators now and urge them to fix the loopholes in H.R. 5140 that allow illegal aliens to get tax rebate checks. After calling your own Senators, please call the Senators who sit on the Finance Committee and urge them to take action too.

Tancredo demands pardon for border agents after another killed

Posted in Border Patrol, Congress, criminal, drug dealer, drug smuggling, Gang Activity, Homeland Security, illegal aliens, illegal immigration, Johnny Sutton, Luis Aguilar, Mexican, Ramos and Compean, Tancredo, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on January 25, 2008 by americanchaos

Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., demanded a pardon of two former Border Patrol agents this week after another agent was killed in the line of duty.

tancredo.jpg

Tancredo, and many other hardliners on immigration, have taken up the cause of Jose Alonso Compean and Ignacio Ramos — who are serving 12 and 11 years in prison, respectively, for shooting and wounding a Mexican drug dealer and trying to cover it up.Supporters say that the agents were wrongly convicted for protecting the United States against criminal intruders.

“Border Patrol agents risk their lives everyday to prevent illegal aliens, illicit narcotics and terrorists from entering this country,” Tancredo said. “It is time we pardon Ramos and Compean and send a clear message to potential smugglers that our Border Patrol will use any means necessary to prevent illegal border crossings.”

Earlier this month, Border Patrol agent Luis Aguilar was killed in the line of duty as he tried to stop a suspected drug smuggler.

Tancredo said that “the overzealous prosecution of Ramos and Compean has created a situation where Border Patrol agents now have to worry about being prosecuted and imprisoned for doing their job.”

In addition, he said: “In the ultra-violent world of drug cartels and human traffickers, even the slightest hesitation by law enforcement can be the difference between life and death. A pardon for Ramos and Compean would go a long way toward restoring confidence in our Border Patrol that this administration is on the side of law enforcement — not the Mexican cartels and the open-borders lobby.”

Members of Congress — including Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas — have asked President Bush to pardon Compean and Ramos or commute their sentences.

The prosecutor in the case, U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton of the Western District of Texas, has staunchly defended the case.
