The Saga Of Illegal Immigrants in US Colleges

This is from the Nealz Nuze Section of Bortz

There has been a controversy at home base here in Atlanta, but it is an issue that we are seeing all around the country. This one just happens to be in my back yard. It centers around Kennesaw State University in the northern region of the Atlanta metro area. A KSU student named Jessica Colotl was pulled over by a cop on March 29th and cited for "impeding the flow of traffic." A minor offense. But when the cop asked for her license and registration .. uh oh .. Jessica no tiene los papeles. She didn't have a valid driver's license. And her passport ... from Mexico ... had expired. So Jessica then faced additional charges of driving without a license and she is turned over to the Cobb County officials. At this point, the county officials invoke their participation in a little program known officially as 287(g), but to us non-legal types: delegation of immigration authority. This program, established in 1995, allows state and local authorities to act on behalf of federal immigration agents. Wait ... isn't that what has the liberals so enraged right now about the Arizona law - allowing local authorities to enforce federal laws?? Anyway, back to Jessica. Cobb County authorities then determined that Jessica is an illegal immigrant and she was sent to Alabama to wait to be deported.

Like I said, situations similar to Jessica are not uncommon. Just yesterday I told you the story of Gladys Castro. She is a high school senior out in California and is exceptionally smart. She got into UC Berkeley. The problem is that she's an illegal alien and since she doesn't have a social security number, she can't apply for government loans to help pay the $30,000 a year in tuition.

As I pointed out yesterday, I'm a rule-of-law kinda guy. So where do we draw the line? Do we draw the line at the point where a person can understand and rationalize the intent of committing a crime and coming across the border? At what age does that happen? Is it even based on age? See how tough this is! In the case of these two ladies, there didn't seem to be any inkling of criminal intent. But in the end, they are still considered criminals under the law.

Obama and Calderon Trash Arizona - Red State

At the White House today, during the welcome ceremony for Mexican President Filipe Calderon - a welcoming to an official state visit wherein Calderon is to be celebrated - President Obama stood by as Calderon trashed the state of Arizona and its citizens over Arizona’s immigration control law:

At the start of Wednesday’s White House visit, Calderon said the law discriminated against Mexicans and called for the two countries to work together to develop an immigration policy that did not force people to live in the shadows “with such laws as the Arizona law, which is forcing our people to face discrimination.”
Obama did not defend Arizona, as one might expect a President of the United States to do, especially at the White House. No, that’s not what change looks like. Obama instead joined in with a foreign head of state in bashing US citizens on US soil.

Rewarding Failure - Fox Business

by John Stossel

One beauty of the free market is that it rewards smart behavior. If you are prudent, you succeed. If you take foolish risks, your business fails. Government, however, rewards foolishness, as Stephen Meister points out today:

"The Federal Housing Administration, which insures home mortgages, not only failed to learn the lessons of the subprime meltdown, it's been doubling down on failure. As a result, this taxpayer-backed agency is headed for disaster.

In 2006, the FHA insured just 3 percent of home mortgages; today, it insures one of every three…

Private-mortgage lenders now require 10 to 20 percent down payments. But a strapped homebuyer can still get the FHA to insure his mortgage with as little as 3.5 percent down…

Meanwhile, the agency is bleeding. As defaults have skyrocketed among FHA-insured mortgages, the FHA's capital reserves have dwindled to about a quarter of the congressionally mandated minimums. As of Sept. 30, the FHA's capital reserves stood at $3.6 billion, about half a percent of the value of the mortgages it insures, down 72 percent from a year earlier...

The agency's home page says " -- another American Dream comes true." In fact, it's building a new American night mare."

WOW Had not see this...

Time To Admit U.S. President Has Lost Clout - Investors Business Daily

On May 3, Barack Obama went down to Louisiana to eyeball the possible damage from the blowout of BP's exploded oil rig, keep the cleanup crews on their toes — no version of "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job" from him — and show the Gulf states and the rest of the nation his concern.

Later that day, the Washington Post's Web site played the story precisely where it belonged — entombed in the middle of the page. In its placement, it said the president of the United States did not, in this case, matter all that much.

Everyone knew that Obama was merely showing that he was not George W. Bush. He was not going to ignore a calamity, especially one affecting New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. On the other hand, we all knew that he could not reverse the winds or cork the spill. In fact, he could do precious little except show that he cared.

'Manchurian President' climbs to No. 22 among best sellers

Barack Obama's efforts to downplay his past have taken a serious blow now that Aaron Klein's exposé of the president's connections with extremists and America-haters is climbing best-seller charts everywhere.

This week, Klein's "The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists" hit No. 22 on the New York Times' best-seller list for hardcover, non-fiction titles.

As WND has reported, the book has also been a huge hit with the online book retailer

Earlier this week, "The Manchurian President" climbed all the way to the No. 1 position on both's "Hot New Releases in Politics" list and its "Hot New Releases in Non-Fiction" list. The book also grabbed the top spot among bestsellers in the Politics category and ranked third among all non-fiction titles sold by the retail giant.

"The Manchurian President" is the result of two years of solid investigations into those within Obama's inner circle as well as the president's shadowy younger years.

On the immigration issue. Jessica may not have had any say in coming to this country illegally, but she did get into that car without insurance or a liscence knowingly. Georgia law requires a social security number or legal status info on all college applications. She committed fraud if she filled out that line. She lied to police about her address, probably to protect her family, which is admirable, but illegal.
She has publically stated that she has a job.

The first act of illegal activity was not her choice, but many of the choices made since then are all her. She seems like a good kid, and it a shame. But, deport her, that is the law.
