WONDER WHY YOU DON’T HEAR MUCH ABOUT THIS IN THE DEBATES. NONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT RUN THE DEBATES (TV NEWORKS), WHO ASK THE QUESTIONS WILL ALLOW THIS TYPE INFORMATION TO GET OUT TO THE PUBLIC.

THE DEMOCRATS AND THE REPUBLICANS GO HIDE WHEN THESE QUESTIONS ARE ASKED, WHY? WHAT COSTS MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR?

Answer: Illegal Aliens Cause Massive Cuts For US Seniors

I hope the following 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them.  I have included the URL’s for verification of the following facts:

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s
two-and-a-half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular,

their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the  US  .

Shades of Fremont!…..local town citizens take up action against influx of Hispanics!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on September 2, 2008


It seems that residents of the community of Goshen, Indiana are “… damn sick and tired of pressing one for English” according to Bob Schrameyer, leader of Citizens for Immigration Law Enforcement, or CILE, recently formed to spur stricter enforcement of immigration law. The continued influx of illegal immigrants and the changes they bring, however, have just been too much to take, especially with the slow-down in U.S. economy and the increasing number of layoffs in the community.

Surprisingly, besides also having an illegal immigration issue, Goshen is a small town with striking similarities to Fremont, Nebraska as shown below.

This Goshen group was formed out of members’ interest in cracking down on undocumented workers and their employers. Here’s some interesting points to ponder according to retired truck leasing firm operator Bob Schrameyer and Goshen City Councilwoman Dixie Robinson.

  1. “They’re not against all immigrants, it’s just the illegal ones ” says Schrameyer.
  2. According to Schrameyer, “there’s nothing wrong with the immigrants coming and filling the jobs, as long as they’re legal.”
  3. Why shouldn’t those opposed to illegal immigration here raise their voice?” says Schrameyer.
  4. “We’ve got the law on our side.” They’re the ones who are here illegally. They’re the ones who broke the law to get here” explains Schrameyer.
  5. We have thousands of people here in Elkhart and St. Joe counties who are unemployed and can’t get work and illegals are working” said Robinson, elected to the Goshen council last year, in part on her stance on the immigration issue.
  6. They want to give foes of illegal immigration a voice. Robinson says “such critics are frequently hesitant about speaking out for fear of being labeled racist.
  7. If you’re illegal, you’re illegal,” said Robinson. “This isn’t anything about being racist, prejudiced.”
  8. Schrameyer sees the undocumented immigrants as “thumbing their nose” at law enforcement, complains they don’t pay their share of income taxes and gripes about other cultural intrusions brought on by their presence. “The community is damn sick and tired of pressing one for English,” he said.
  9. Schrameyer tires of talk of “diversity,” that is, the notion touted by immigrant defenders that the food, customs and other markers of the newcomers’ home countries enhance the local culture.

Group members envision seeking enforcement of existing law that they say is ignored and pushing for new state legislation requiring employers to be more stringent in checking their workers’ migratory status. They’ll also be pressing local candidates for office on their immigration views. ALIPC story eTruth story

News Bulletin: Fremont, Nebraska immigration task force grows!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on August 18, 2008

The Fremont, Nebraska task force on the cities illegal immigration issues has expanded to include representatives from the Attorney General Jon Bruning, U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry and U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson’s offices. Too bad they don’t include the real elected officials.

Watch for Cindi with the Hispanic sounding name from the World-Herald to ask La Raza (The Race), the ACLU, the Nebraska Appleseed Project and many other radical nut groups if it’s OK! She is probably working overtime as our item is being posted. KPTM news item

Take down that bird feeder, Fremont and Nebraska citizens!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on July 22, 2008

We got a letter from Maxine the other day. The analogy is absolutely right on . . . Maxine tells it like it is!!!! Take down that bird feeder, Fremont and Nebraska citizens!


I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it is, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.


But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table everywhere!

Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.


After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.


Soon, the back yard was like it used to be…. quiet, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now let’s see……!

Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, and free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen.

Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; your child’s 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English.

Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to ‘press one’ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ‘Old Glory’ are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.


Just our opinion, but maybe it’s time for our federal, state and local governments to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the poop and paying high taxes the feed the birds!”

Liberal Supreme Court Justices Green-Light Illegal Immigration (Rush’s take on this!)

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 18, 2008

As a follow-up to our EDITORIAL Five Idiots On the Bench….Or how to turn 4 1/2 months to 10 years

Here’s Rush Limbaugh’s take on this:

Liberal Supreme Court Justices Green-Light Illegal Immigration
June 16, 2008

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: “The Supreme Court” this morning just prior to the program starting “made it easier … for some foreigners who overstay their visas to seek to remain in the United States legally.” The Supreme Court today 5-4, the same bunch that voted the issue last week with Anthony Kennedy writing the opinion, has just green-lighted illegal immigration. “The court ruled 5-4 that someone who is here illegally may withdraw his voluntarily [sic] agreement to depart and continue to try to get approval to remain in the United States,” while still here. “The decision essentially embraced a proposed Justice Department regulation governing the treatment of similar cases in the future. Samson Dada, a Nigerian citizen, stayed beyond the expiration of his tourist visa in 1998. He married an American the following year and soon began trying to obtain a visa as an immediate relative of a citizen. But Dada and his wife apparently failed to submit some documents, causing immigration officials to deny the visa.

“Dada has been trying again to obtain the visa, but immigration authorities meanwhile have ordered him to leave the country. He agreed to leave voluntarily, which would allow him to try sooner to re-enter the country legally than if he had been deported. The court’s task,” and once again, this is the Associated Press, “was to decide whether he could withdraw his voluntary agreement to leave the country and continue to try to adjust his status while in the United States. Immigration authorities recently ruled that Dada had entered a ‘sham’ marriage in order to stay [here], but that finding was not part of the court’s consideration. Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, joined by his four liberal colleagues. The four conservative justices dissented. Justice Antonin Scalia said, ‘The court lacks the authority to impose its chosen remedy.'”

And that’s it in a nutshell. Once again, the Supreme Court of the United States is micromanaging an area left to another branch. In this case, the Constitution explicitly leaves it to Congress to regulate immigration. This is not what judging is supposed to be about. These judges on the left are no more than political hacks now, imposing their own personal policy preferences rather than interpreting the law. It’s been going on a long time. You know, if they want to be politicians then their conduct has been exposed and questioned. It’s the same thing with their attitudes and their motives. This is not what judging is supposed to be about. The Constitution does not countenance this kind of behavior on the part of judges. The court, I doubt that it will be, but it would be great if it became a major focus of the presidential campaign now that it’s out. The problem we hear again, I don’t know. I haven’t heard what Senator McCain said about this, but he probably agrees with it. He came out stridently against the Guantanamo Bay ruling last week, but he probably…

I don’t know, but if he understands this as an encroachment on congressional authority, then he’s got to oppose this. The Supreme Court just told Congress, “You can’t do what you did. We’re going to write the immigration laws, not you.” Now, just last week, the Supreme Court of the United States bestowed constitutional rights to foreign-born terrorists. The ruling last week is a chilling demonstration along with this ruling today of the American divide between conservatives and liberals. Four liberals on the court, aided and abetted by Justice Kennedy, used the Guantanamo Bay case as a power grab. Their decision overturned precedent since our founding that placed the prosecution of war squarely within the executive branch. Naturally, Democrats last week and this week are celebrating the ruling, celebrated amid warnings that it will cost American troops their lives. But this decision, the Guantanamo Bay decision last week and this decision on immigration this morning, both have even broader implications.

Because in short order — in just seven or eight days — the Supreme Court of the United States and its liberal judges have turned American law upside down. And let’s look back further to the past to see just how they’ve also done this. They have stripped voters of free speech rights, limiting production and participation in political debate. The Supreme Court of the United States has stripped homeowners of rights to their own property should politicians decide to seize it for developers. That’s the Kelo decision. And I have a friend who lives in Connecticut. He sent me a note last week, or it might have been the week before last. He said, “Do you know that the property that they seized in Kelo is still undeveloped?” The woman that they kicked off her own property is gone. They took it, seized it, kicked her off. She’s gone. The property is gone. They haven’t done anything to develop it? It’s blank; it’s barren. And yet this was a case where there was a specific developer who was to go in and do specific things that was going to generate more and more tax revenue for this local community and it hasn’t happened, but the woman got kicked off of her property nevertheless.

The Supreme Court of the United States has stripped homeowners of rights to their own property in more ways than just Kelo, by the way. The Supreme Court of the United States has stripped parents of the right to discipline their own kids. The Supreme Court of the United States is in the process of defining the very definition of marriage. They have ruled against legal immigration. They’ve ruled illegal immigrants must be accorded the same protection as citizens, and American taxpayers must support them financially. They have pushed God from the public square. They have used junk science to place the interests of animals above the prosperity of people — and the Supreme Court of the United States has stripped the most sacred protection, the right to life, from infants in the womb. Whatever power that liberals cannot achieve at the ballot box they seize through the courts. This is the change that Barack Obama and his fellow liberals have been waiting for. And the America they are creating and want to create is not the America we know, nor is it an America that most of you will even want to know.

END TRANSCRIPT

Five Idiots On the Bench….Or how to turn 4 1/2 months to 10 years

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 16, 2008

EDITORIAL:

Five idiots just gave the green light to half the illegal aliens in the country this morning! The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Monday, June 16 that someone who is here illegally may withdraw his voluntarily agreement to depart and continue to try to get approval to remain in the United States. See AP story Just for the record AP, Mr. Dada was a “foreign national” when he arrived in the U.S. but when he overstayed his visa, how do you say “illegal alien”. There is a difference!

So this illegal Nigerian alien, Samson Dada, (see it’s not always the illegal Mexican and South Americans aliens) came into the U.S. on a tourist visa and overstayed when it expired in 1998. So ICE has been screwing with him for 10 years? What’s that all about? Then he married an American citizen the following year and began trying to obtain a visa as an immediate relative of a citizen. Oh, by the way, did I mention that it was a “sham” marriage. Dada and his supposedly wife failed to submit the proper papers, immigration officials denied the visa and ordered him to leave the country. He agreed to leave voluntarily, which would have allowed him to re-enter sooner than if deported. This has been in the process with ICE for 10 years? Again, what’s that all about? (Oh, did I repeat myself?)

Sham marriage? Break the law? No problem with these liberals and they did it at the request of the Bush administration! You can be sure the immigration attorneys will be jumping all over this one! This is just another example of the courts overstepping the Constitution and our laws. They all need to be un-benched permanently. See why electing the right leader in this year’s Presidential election is so important! Then again, we have the choice of a Democrat, Socialist and a Communist so who knows what will happen in either case.

Michelle Malkin says “whether Obama or McCain becomes president, I think we can look forward to more of this open-borders activism on the Supreme Court. La Raza, the ACLU, and AILA are high-fiving each other today over the ruling in Dada v. Mukasey (opinion here):” See Michelle’s blog

To see how crazy this whole thing plays out for 10 years and how inept our government bureaucracy and legal system is, I’ve taken the liberty to post the following case analysis from Dr. Bill Long, a lawyer, and have high-lighted some important text. Read full text at Dr. Bill Long’s website.

Bill Long 11/30/07

Docket No. 06-1181; Oral Argument Jan. 7, 2008*

“…Let’s tell the story behind the case and see what your inclinations are. I think if you listen to the facts–and especially see the chronology, you might be rather astounded at it all.

…Mr. Samson Dada, a Nigerian citizen, who applied for a nonimmigrant visa to the United States in 1998. …. When a foreign national with a nonimmigrant visa arrives at the US border, s/he is granted a period of time in which s/he can remain in the country. So, Mr. Dada arrived in the US on April 4, 1998 and could stay until August 31, 1998. But, as so often is the case, he overstayed.

At first, no one did anything about it. But in 1999 he decided to marry to a US citizen. She applied for an I-130 visa for her spouse, which was a way to get him to stay (more) permanently in the US. Normally it takes about 990 days–almost three years to adjudicate an I-130 visa petition. What? Why? I have no idea, but someone ought to try to figure this one out.

finally on February 7, 2003, Homeland Security, which didn’t even exist when they applied for an I-130 visa, denied the visa petition and deemed it “abandoned.” Why? Well, they hadn’t furnished all the right documentation to the immigration officials.

By this time, however, he has been in the country nearly five years after his nonimmigrant visa expired. Fear not. We are just beginning. A year later, on January 4, 2004, Homeland Security decided that Dada ought to be removed…. In any case, if he had a removal order, he has some time to maneuver, to appeal, etc. So on March 17, 2004 the wife again decided to file an I-130 visa petition. Why? Well, if it took Homeland Security 3 1/2 years to get to the first one, you might as well try this again.

But the immigration judge (IJ) denied this petition but did allow Dada to request “voluntary departure” in lieu of removal. This is an important point. You can apply for voluntary departure either during or after your removal proceeding. If you are awarded this, the removal proceeding stops (i.e, they won’t come and get you) and you have either up to 120 or 60 days (depending on whether it was during or after the removal proceeding ended) to leave the country. ….

You wonder sometimes if all of this is a joke, but I am a lawyer and lawyers can’t joke. So, let’s continue. After Dada was granted a request for voluntary departure, he decided to appeal his removal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”). This stops the clock on departure. So, the BIA got into the act and decided on Nov. 4, 2005 that Samson Dada had to go. The BIA decided that he had exactly 30 days to depart voluntarily. If he didn’t depart in those 30 days, he would be ineligible for status adjustments for 10 years–and face lots of fines and other inconveniences.

Sounds like things are just about over, don’t they? Well, Samson was a strong guy, not only in the Bible but also in this case. On day 28 after this order, he filed a motion with the BIA to “reopen” his case and to “withdraw” his request for voluntary departure. The reason he did the latter was that if he stayed over his 30 day period (i.e., past December 5, 2006), he would lose the benefit of the voluntary departure and tons of bad stuff would happen to him. But by asking the BIA to “reopen” his case, he would have 90 days after the Nov. 4 decision to do so. So, he stayed in the country. On Feb. 8, 2006 the BIA denied his motion to reopen the case. Now he really has to go, right? No, he appealed to the Court of Appeals of the Fifth Circuit, which couldn’t wait to get the case off of its docket, denying him relief in a one-page unpublished decision on Nov. 28, 2006.

All is not lost. So, he appealed to the US Supreme Court on Feb. 26, 2007–the final day he could do so and, guess what, the Supreme Court decided to hear his case. By the time the Court renders a decision, probably in Spring 2008, it will be almost 10 years to the day that Samson Dada was supposed to have left the country. Now can you understand what immigration reform is up against?

The Nazi’s are coming…..the Nazi’s are coming…..to Omaha

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 8, 2008

UPDATE: June 11, 2008 – The protest date is scheduled for Saturday, July 5th at 12:30 p.m instead of July 8th.

Well it’s that time of year again folks. Those wild and crazy bunch of guys, the (American) National Socialist Movement (Nazi’s) are coming back to Omaha again to protest in “Little Mexico” (South Omaha…for you outlanders). Set up for July 8 at Thrift World, 5128 S 24th St., they will be protesting against a business owner indicted by a federal grand jury in April 2008 for hiring and hiding illegal immigrants dating back to 2002.

The Nebraska Observer in no way endorses this white supremacist group or any other group of this nature. We are simply reporting the news. In fact, these citizens have more right as far as the Nebraska Observer is concerned than the illegal Mexicans and other Hispanics aliens who march in our streets not asking; but demanding citizenship, waving their flags in our face (in some cases, stomping on the American flag) and then saying they are going to take part of our country away from us.

That said, we do applaud the groups First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and protest, as well as having the cahones to do so. Meanwhile, the rest of us (sheep) don’t educate ourselves and complacently go about our daily lives while local Hispanic leaders, politicians and community leaders try to screw every last dollar out of us, the taxpayers. It’s must be every American citizen’s dream to become a “third-world” country like Mexico.

There should be thousands of us (sheep) also out in the streets marching and saying, “we’re sick and tired of all this Hispanic “bull-shit” of trying to get these “illegal aliens” citizenship and as much “free” goodies as possible..blah..blah..blah..whine..whine..whine because they are “brown like me”! This does not include our fellow Mexican-American citizens, such as “You Don’t Speak For Me” who are also fed up with this crap too!

Postville, Iowa: Non-skilled labor contractor pulls workers out of AgriProcessors meatpacking plant

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 31, 2008

Labor Ready, one of America’s largest providers of temporary employment in the unskilled and construction fields pulled about 150 workers out of Agriprocessors meatpacking plant for supposedly safety concerns. We say supposedly because Labor Ready has a history of being accused of and taken to court for mistreatment and deceptive practices by employees and labor unions.

In March and April, the Iowa Division of Labor Services agreed to reduce fines against the plant for 39 violations of workplace safety rules based on inspections that took place in October 2007 and February 2008. Many of the alleged violations related to hazardous chemicals, blood-borne pathogens and what the state called “serious health violations.” According to government records, Agriprocessors Inc. has a history of noncompliance with state and federal regulations related to food safety, pollution and workplace safety at its Postville facility.

So apparently Labor Ready didn’t know they were providing workers into an unsafe facility prior to the ICE raid (if they were providing workers prior to Monday, May 12) and/or they had no knowledge of the prior safety concerns and inspections of the Iowa Division of Labor prior to placing their personnel into the plant sometime after May 12? (Wink-Wink!) So when did they know it and how much did they know? We just don’t buy it! It looks like they are trying to make a “fast exit” while they can…..DesMoines Register story

Farmers Branch, TX: Ruling Clears the Way for New City Ordinance making it difficult for illegal aliens to reside and work in the city

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 31, 2008

(Washington DC) A pair of orders issued this week by U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay, have cleared the way for the city of Farmers Branch, Texas to implement a redrafted ordinance, says the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI). The new ordinance adopts key elements of model legislation drafted by IRLI.

The substitute, Ordinance 2952, was adopted by the Farmers Branch City Council last January. It provides a means to carry out the will of the voters who approved Ordinance 2903, while ensuring that the city does not infringe upon the federal government’s authority over immigration policy. IRLI is a recognized expert in drafting these sorts of local policies and has successfully worked with state and local governments to implement laws that allow them to become successful partners with the federal government in enforcement of immigration policies.

The objective of Farmers Branch is to institute policies that make it difficult for illegal aliens to reside and work in the city,” stated Michael Hethmon, general counsel for IRLI. “The citizens have repeatedly stated at the polls that they want effective local policies to deter illegal immigration. Farmers Branch should not have to shoulder this federal burden, but they have admirably done their civic duty. Cities across the nation can now benefit from the work reflected in the new ordinance.”….story
