Archive for the ‘Illegal Immigration’ Category

When Guyanese-born NEIL GOUVEIA immigrated to New York at age 7, his mother made a devastating decision to leave one child behind to expedite the family exodus. Six years later, they became US citizens. Now 39, gay and newly conservative, Gouveia takes a tough, unpopular stance against those who cross the border illegally. He shared his story with The Post’s Susan Edelman.

You’ve heard news about families being separated at the US southern border. Legal immigrants have to deal with separation as well. My mother made her own “Sophie’s Choice.”

In Guyana back in 1986, an immigration officer broke the terrible news. After a three-year wait, my mother, Bassodai Gouveia, arrived at the US embassy in Georgetown to pick up visas for our family of nine to go live in America.

“Mrs. Gouveia, we can’t give you the visas,” he told my mom. “You have a sick child. If you brought her to the United States, it would be a huge government expense. And you can’t abandon her.”

When immigrants apply to come to America, they have to go through a complete physical. My sister, Vera, 9, had cerebral palsy. She couldn’t walk or talk and was mostly bed-bound. But she smiled and laughed. When I got a spanking for misbehaving, I would hug Vera, who was 17 months older than me, for comfort.

My mother walked away from the immigration officer, dejected, then suddenly turned around and went back: “Sir, I have an aunt who can take care of my child while we’re in America,” she told him, fibbing. (She actually had a friend who would look after Vera.)

It tore my mother apart, but she had to make a decision to leave Vera behind — or start the application process all over again. She had to sacrifice Vera to save the American dream for the rest of us — me and five kids from her previous marriage along with my father.

When we came to America, we lived in a basement apartment in the South Bronx. Mom and Dad had to hustle and get jobs. There was no time to relax. Dad, a customs official in Guyana, became a janitor. Mom, who had left school when her father died at age 9 to sell fruit, cleaned houses.

Neil Gouveia came to America in 1986 with parents Augustine and Bassodai Gouveia, who were forced to leave his ailing baby sister, Vera (pictured), behind.

Neil Gouveia came to America in 1986 with parents Augustine and Bassodai Gouveia, who were forced to leave his ailing baby sister, Vera (pictured), behind.

One day, a woman whose house she was cleaning saw her crying and asked what was wrong. My mom explained that she had to leave her daughter in Guyana. It so happened that the woman was the principal of a special-needs school. “I’m going to help you.” she promised.

The principal and my mother pleaded with local politicians to petition on her behalf. About six months later, she had a letter granting permission for Vera to enter the US. My mom went back to South America and brought her to New York.

About a month later, Vera came down with pneumonia and died. We were heartbroken, but my mom still felt vindicated. One of her greatest satisfactions in life is knowing that she never gave up on her daughter.

I learned a lot about American culture and traditions from watching sit-coms: “Three’s Company,” “Diff’rent Strokes,” “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons.” I went to some of the worst elementary and middle schools in the South Bronx but won a scholarship to Monsignor Scanlan High School and escaped a cycle of sub par [sic] education. It gave me the discipline I was not exposed to in the public school system. I earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from St. John’s University in Queens and a master’s degree in education from Baruch College.

Those experiences shaped my “conservative” views on immigration. It took five years after we arrived in the US before we could apply for citizenship. While I was exempt because of my age, 13, mom and dad had to prepare for a naturalization test on American history and government. Mom was the nervous one — she did not have a formal education and the thought of taking an exam terrified her. She and my dad studied for hours to answer the 100 questions that could seal their fate.

On test day, an immigration officer asked 10 questions, and my parents had to answer at least six correctly. Dad passed easily, but mom barely made it. At the official ceremony, I stood with my parents, bursting with pride, as they took the citizenship oath and pledged allegiance to the US flag. At that moment, I, too, became an American citizen. If under age 18, the children of a naturalized parent are automatically granted the same status.

I remained defiant because my parents’ journey here was not easy, and I could not betray the country that has done so much for me
Today, if someone hops the US border and gives birth to a child, that child gets the exact same benefit that took my parents eight years to achieve. They waited their turn, but babies born to illegal immigrants in the US automatically become citizens. That’s a huge flaw in our immigration system.

What President Trump is pitching is already practiced in Australia and Canada. They’re very selective about who they admit. I also think it’s legitimate to separate children, initially, to verify whom they really belong to. If these people don’t have documents to prove the children belong to them, border agents have to act in their best interest. Human and child trafficking is a huge problem.

Before the 2016 presidential campaign, I didn’t fully understand how the left and right operated. I was always fed the narrative that since I was a person of color — my mother of Indian descent, my father Portuguese — an immigrant and gay that I had to follow a script: Support the Democratic Party and liberal values; conservatives were the boogeyman.
After Trump won the election, my friends instantly wanted him to fail as a leader. I would explain that if he failed, we failed. This point of view was met with heavy backlash and a barrage of insults. Anyone who showed any type of support toward Trump was deemed the enemy.

People accused me of turning my back on minorities and their struggle. I remained defiant because my parents’ journey here was not easy, and I could not betray the country that has done so much for me.

But speaking my mind became isolating. People with whom I had shared many amazing years of friendship allowed politics to divide us. Dozens of my liberal friends stopped talking to me or unfriended [sic] me on social media. I tried to suppress my political views when meeting new people. I was passive and bit my tongue on many occasions. I wasn’t being true to myself. I felt like I was in the closet all over again.

Amid the backlash, however, I did meet people who looked past politics and not only accepted me but admired that I dared to be different in liberal-dominated NYC. One of those people is my partner, Dan. Although he does not agree with many of my views, he respects them.

I’m fortunate to be a US citizen because I’m able to live a quality life and enjoy the benefits this country has to offer. I find it disheartening when people gripe about being oppressed in America, especially other immigrants. I firmly believe that living in America is a privilege. This country is truly the land of opportunities.

Well it’s just about one year since the inauguration and the burning question is this:

Why is it that all the libtards who said they would move to Canada if Trump got elected are still here?

His crime against humanity has morphed from colluding with the Russians, to being mentally unfit to govern, to being a blatant racist.

Just how many Americans on an annual basis emigrate to Haiti or Somalia?

Ever since immigrants have been coming here they have been coming to either avoid persecution or to escape some shithole.

Would the Irish have come here if the potato famine ( funny how there was enough of a crop to feed the English) hadn’t turned the place into a shithole for them.

How many Jews would be here if the Czar hadn’t made eastern Europe a shithole for them so his one-third plan would succeed: One third dies, one third leaves and one third converts from Judaism.

Nobody is leaving a position as an investment banker to wash dishes in a Denny’s.

The call of the subversive is to shelter under the cloak of noble immigrant and persecuted refugee every fence-jumping felon and jihadist that makes it through.

The immigrant is the new “noble savage”, a patronizing and racist fabrication that was the image of American Indians.

Does “I love my children so much I robbed a bank to give them the means to achieve their dream” get me safe haven in a  sanctuary city?

The bigger point here is that calling some one a racist is less an act of exposing an injustice and more of making sure your opponent is occupied with defending himself and you now control the narrative.

Samuel Grosvenor Wood, A mid century Hollywood director, testified before the House Un-American activities Committee in 1947.

He stated:

“If you mention you are opposed to the Communist Party, then you are anti-labor, anti-Semitic or anti-Negro and you will end up being called a fascist, but they never start that until they find out that you are opposed to the Communist Party.”

Control the narrative – flip that shit –

If some one bashes Trump ask them why they are a Communist.

Will all those who said they would leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president please get the fuck out now?

Friday nights are usually family time around the LoB homestead.

Now that LoB Jr. is off at a small mid-western college writing letters to Penthouse it tends to  just be Mrs. LoB and me catching up on the week’s DVR’d  sitcoms.

When the TV starts up it’s programmed to open with FOX News and there was Megyn Kelly getting the scoop from the Windy City.

All I can say is, where is Mayor Richard J. Daley when you need him?

In the interest of full disclosure I have to admit that the Donald is not my first choice for president. I think Kasich for all his peccadilloes would be a better Commander-in- Chief, but i digress.

Mrs. LoB on the other hand wants Megyn Kelly for president.

Mrs. LoB is so imbued with Ms. Kelly that she has consented to let Megyn be my free pass. So if you are reading this Megyn, I’ll bring the whipped cream, you bring the cherries, but I digress.

Anyway I would like to thank the flotsam and jetsam of the City of the Big Shoulders  for showing their true colors.

By denying Trump  his right to express himself they have helped to further solidify the growing core of his support.

The over arching image I’m left with of this creme de le scum is the pervasive plethora of Mexican flags and keffiyehs being sported. The other take away was that these SHPOS (that stands for sub human pieces of shit for those of you unfamiliar) either spoke with heavy foreign accents or were unable to articulate a thought, or both.

The most intelligent expression they had was the presence of a multitude of Bernie Sanders signs.

I’m waiting for him to disavow the Bolshevik thuggish tactics used in his name. Should I hold my breath?

Last night in Sweet Home gives us all more reasons to vote for Trump.

Gun used in SF shooting stolen from federal agent

San Francisco (UPI) — The handgun used to kill a 32-year-old woman at a popular waterfront tourist spot in San Francisco may have been stolen from a federal agent weeks prior to the shooting.

Kate Steinle-Francisco SanchezThe .40-caliber pistol used to kill Kathryn Steinle on July 1 may have been stolen from a Bureau of Land Management employee in a June car burglary, not long before Steinle was shot dead while walking with her father on Pier 14 on the Embarcadero, a popular San Francisco tourist pier.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday that the weapon was not the agent’s government-issued gun. It was recovered Thursday by law enforcement divers who described it as an expensive, high-end police gun.

Tuesday, the man suspected in the shooting, Francisco Sanchez, an undocumented Mexican immigrant who has been deported five times and a repeat drug offender, was ordered held on $5 million after pleading not guilty in the shooting death. He said the shooting was accidental. He is expected to return to court July 27.

“There is no motive whatsoever for this defendant to have caused any harm to the deceased,” public defender Matt Gonzalez said in court. “He did not know her.”

The shooting and subsequent arrest has sparked a nationwide debate about illegal immigration and San Francisco’s lax deportation policies. Details of Sanchez’s immigration status and the shooting became a lightning rod after Republican nomination hopeful Donald Trump used the case to bolster his comments last month about Mexican immigrants.

Here are some basic, yet sound rules/laws for immigration:

Welcome only foreigners who will be useful to our society:
– Foreigners are admitted “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.”
– Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents.
– Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.”
– The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.”

Authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:
– Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants.
– A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual’s identity.
– A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number.

Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:
– Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned.
– Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which s/he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment.

Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:
– Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished.
– Foreigners who are deported and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years.
– Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison.
– Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while here — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.

Under law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says:
– “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand dollars will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.”
– Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported instead of being imprisoned.
– Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported.

Citizens who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:
– A citizen who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison.
– Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into the country will be fined.

– – –

Pretty good, don’t you think?

Sorry to disappoint you, folks, but these are part of Mexico’s current immigration laws.

What’s wrong with this picture?

Our current border crisis isn’t about “the children.” Dems couldn’t care less about the children, and they created this crisis with ulterior motives.

They need more voters and will do whatever they must to gain and keep power in this country, including the abuse of every illegal alien already inside our borders, and potential illegal aliens outside our borders.

So, DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

Dear patriot,

Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX)

Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX)

Barack Obama has a scheme to send the United States into a death spiral…

…by stealing every election for the next 75 years…

…using illegal aliens.

It’s disgustingly simple.

1) Flood the country [with] millions of young illegals.

2) Roadblock attempts to send them home, hoping to let the media attention die down.

3) Work with liberal judges to give them legal status.

4) They can now vote. And since they’re young, they’ll be voting for the next 60-75 years.

Obama just created millions of left-wing voters out of thin air.

And liberal groups are already [working] with these illegals to fast-track their citizenship.

But Obama’s scheme doesn’t stop there.

5) Steer these illegals into government union jobs. Obama already met with the SEIU government worker union this week to plan just that.

6) Now that they work for the government, your tax dollars fund their paycheck. SEIU bosses automatically take your tax dollars from those paychecks and spend them electing the most radical liberal they can find. They already spend $70 MILLION a year just on electing liberal Democrats. They could double that amount if these illegals were steered into government jobs.

Obama just found a way to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars into Democrat campaign accounts, using illegals as the funnel.

Every election for the next 50 years will be stolen using millions of illegal alien votes created out of thin air and illegal alien political funding stolen from YOUR tax dollars.

Your rights and freedoms are about to [be] crushed underneath an illegal alien tidal wave.

Help me blow the whistle and stop them.

Remember Step 2, “Roadblock attempts to send them home, hoping to let the media attention die down.”

If there’s one thing I do well, other than vote 100% conservative 100% of the time, it’s holding the media’s feet to the fire.

Help me sound the alert to other patriots.

I am the ONLY member of Congress calling Obama out on this. I need to get out into the media and organize patriots nationwide to turn up the heat.

With your help I can put the pressure on Congress to stop this election-stealing scheme.

Obama’s scheme will end the United States, and turn us into a left-wing banana republic.

I know you won’t let Obama crush this country under an illegal tidal wave.

Help me defeat this scheme to steal elections and use the taxpayer to fund Democrat campaigns.

Sincerely,

Congressman Steve Stockman

P.S. Every election for the next 50 years will be stolen, using millions of illegal alien votes created out of thin air and illegal alien political funding that was stolen from YOUR tax dollars. The tidal wave of young illegal aliens swamping the US is an intentional scheme by Obama to rig elections and fund Democrats.

I am the ONLY member of Congress calling Obama out on this. Help me organize patriots and put the pressure on Congress to stop this election-stealing scheme.

Go here right now to chip in just $5.
