AG’s Office Putting Immigration Policy On Hold

A federal judge had already blocked two portions of Indiana’s law after another lawsuit was filed back in May.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller wants to see how the Arizona case plays out in the Supreme COURT.

Indiana‘s Attorney General wants a time out on a pair of lawsuits challenging the state‘s immigration law. Greg Zoeller asked Thursday that both cases be put on hold until the US Supreme Court rules on a similar case from Arizona.

“Indiana will await guidance,” he says, from the United States Supreme Court on what states are empowered to do when the congress and federal government agencies totally fail in their responsibility to enact and enforce federal immigration policy.”

Zoeller‘s action came less than two days after a lawsuit was filed by a non-profit group in East Chicago that helps Latino residents. A federal judge had already blocked two portions of Indiana’s law after another lawsuit was filed back in May.

The group ‘Union Benefica Mexicana’ is challenging two other parts of the law that were left intact. One section penalizes employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. The other section says people applying for day labor jobs must fill out employment authorization forms, and it lets police officers arrest anyone they believe did not fill out those forms.

The law took effect July 1st, but without provisions blocked by US district Judge Sarah Evans-Barker after a federal lawsuit was filed with backing from the A.C.L.U. and the National Immigration Law Center.

One of those provisions would have allowed state and local police to arrest anyone ordered deported by an immigration court.

    JUDGE THAT BLOCKED ARIZONA IMMIGRATION
    LAW IS OBAMA APPOINTEE.

     

    It’s
    difficult to comprehend the deep seated fraud that surrounds us, especially
    where illegal immigration is concerned. Learning more about it and the
    collusion that springs from both political parties, is significantly heavily
    disguised by the Liberal press and other media. Searching the Internet can be
    difficult, but by turning to “American Patrol” website, the truth and
    lies are separated in reports, articles and commentary from reliable
    sources. You will not find extremist University Professors relaying to us, that
    the economy will grow if we coddle those who broke our sovereign laws. The
    first real mass amnesty as the 1986 bill was one downright lie, with not just
    those who are already here, but the millions who will come
    under the policy of FAMILY UNIFICATION or known more legally as Chain
    migration. That too became an uncontrollable issue, as eventually we had
    to support the older family members, as their original sponsors usually failed
    their obligation.

     

    BEFORE ARIZONA”S LAW IS INTERPRETED AS
    UNCONSTITUTIONAL OR CONSTITUTIONAL, WE MUST HASTEN PASSAGE OF “THE LEGAL
    WORKFORCE BILL”KNOWN ALSO AS E-VERIFY AND ADDITIONALLY APPLY AN AMENDMENT TO
    BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP BILL ALSO. THIS WARNING IS TO ALL PATRIOTIC AMERICANS,
    AS WE WILL REGRET IT IN THE FUTURE, IF WE ALLOW BOTH LAWS TO CRAWL ALONG AND
    REMAIN IN LIMBO. THERE IS VERY LITTLE TRUST IN OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM ANYMORE AND
    THE CONSEQUENCES COULD BE DEVASTATING TO EVERY TAXPAYER. FIRST—IF ANY STATE
    POLICING LAWS ARE RENDERED UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

     

     

    JUDGEMENT THAT WAS RENDERED ON ARIZONA THIS
    WEEK WAS AN “OBAMA APPOINTEE” AND WAS SURELY INFLUENCED BY THE LIBERAL AGENDA.  THE OUTCOME WILL ATTRACT MILLIONS OF MORE
    CRIMINALS AND DESTITUTE PEOPLE FROM ACROSS THE WORLD.  ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION WILL FURTHER BANKRUPT OUR
    HOSPITALS, CLOG OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM WITH CHILDREN UNABLE TO COMPREHEND THE
    ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND CRAMMING EVEN MORE ALIEN CRIMINALS IN PRISON CELLS AND
    WILL CRIPPLE OUR WELFARE SAFETY NET FOR OUR
    OLD AND SICK. ANOTHER AMNESTY WILL BE CATASTROPHIC AND THE COST TO TAXPAYERS OF
    $2.6 TRILLION DOLLARS WILL NEVER HEAL AS ACCORDING TO ANALYST ROBERT RECTOR OF
    THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION.

     

    Sovereignty-minded
    are up against heavy odds at every turn, as neither party wants to sever their
    lucrative ties to discount labor for the Democrats—legal or illegal voting. If
    you haven’t already heard already, the Democrats are trying to force a vote, so
    no voter—non-citizen has to show any proof, who they really are. Anybody with
    access to a printer can produce a utility bill or some other authentic looking
    documents to register or even vote. The days of trust and peoples integrity has
    passed, so we must have some kind of official picture ID, such as a driver’s
    license?  For the record some idiots we
    have in local government, namely Massachusetts Mayor John DeStefano has
    broadcasted that he wants to allow illegal aliens the right to vote in
    municipal elections? Dear God! Wants next, to become a politician within that
    state of Massachusetts? Hopefully the
    voters in New Haven will throw him out, when he comes up for re-election. But a
    word of Warning, illegal aliens will violate the law in local, state of even
    the general election.  There should be
    the retribution for all elected officials who try to undermine citizen’s
    rights. They are all supposedly all Public Servants and that includes the
    President? Much of this far reaching nonsense has come about from the
    ultra-lefts political correctness doctrine that has caused a major segregate in
    the US population.

     

    One foul little secret the government
    doesn’t inform us about, is that thousands of Americans annually sharing their
    Identities with migrants and immigrants and a large portion of individuals are
    unaware of it. Because of the downright and possible intentional failure to
    build the real fence and track international passengers the government is
    encouraging millions more to come here. The Obama administration also rescinded
    the ‘NO MATCH LETTER’ that demonstrates to citizens and legal immigrants that a
    law that should be enforced is just dormant. Those foreign nationals who pay
    taxes are using either stolen or have composed their own number.  The Social Security Administration, reports the
    ‘No Match Letter’ situation and all the employment credits accumulated is held
    in a vacuum called the ‘Earnings Suspense.’ File. There have been no real
    studies of who is using the Wrong numbers. Thousands of Americans have fallen
    into this trap including myself that these SSA mismatches are foreign nationals
    who have arrived here illegally or overstayed their tourist visa and have now
    settled here.

     

    ID Theft is big business–that is racking
    up dollars for criminal enterprises. I personally didn’t realize my situation,
    until it came to my attention that three unknown people were working on my
    number. My observation was somebody had been hired and was working for a
    Security firm in Houston, TX. I immediately contacted the SSA and was told that
    they would deal with it. Luckily, no illegal transactions had taken place, but
    not for the uncounted amounts of average Americans.  The SSA does not inform you if somebody is
    using your SS number, so innocent victims have no idea they are sharing their
    identity with illegal aliens. This abuse is not even revealed by the 3 credit
    bureaus, even if the unknown person uses your personal number to get a credit
    card, mortgage or auto loan. The credit bureaus only use this information
    automatically to create a new credit file and never alert you to the fact. The
    ID sufferers remain unacquainted until something is found erroneous, then you
    are alerted to unpaid bills or the phone starts ringing off the hook from debt
    collectors. Trying to identify the culprit or producing an explanations for the
    bank or other creditors is very humiliating and no assistance from the
    government who caused this problem in the first place. Years of impervious
    administrations have allowed this problem to drag on, effecting American lives
    and their access to credit. Of course now there is another billion dollar
    industry springing up to safeguard our personal SS numbers, which would never
    surprise me if certain politicians have an investment in this relatively new
    industry.

     

     

    Americans need a official resident ID card
    to not only to prove who you are, but to vote, to apply for public
    entitlements, a drivers license, insurance as ID theft is just getting worse?
    The Democrats, Liberals or the Republicans see any necessity to stop this
    corruption. The Social Security number is now an unsafe identifier and has been
    compromised? The Democrats-Liberals and its associated media downplay illegal
    aliens voting in our elections, but voter fraud is becoming more dominant as
    was seen in the midterm elections. For the earmark money spent by Congress on
    some nonsensical programs, every citizens and green card holder could be issued
    with a permanent ID card. I only found out that some person/persons were using
    my SS number, when I went to refinance my Jeep. Without access to my credit
    report, I would have never known.

     

     

    It seems to me only the break-away Tea
    PARTY resembles the party of the American People. They will merge the giant
    government we are paying for now, reducing it to the outlines of the U.S.
    Constitution. The TEA PARTY will throw out of office radical career lawmakers,
    replacing them with physical Conservatives as seen amongst the Republican
    Party. The TEA PARTY will replace the antediluvian tax code, with a fair
    substitute and with no more special privileges for wealthy corporations,
    non-profits and other subsidies that will be reined- in?  Many of the oversized agencies of the
    government will be amalgamated and others returned to state influence. Through
    new laws such as E-Verify, ‘The Legal Workforce Act’ (H.R.2885.) This will
    insure illegal workers can no longer be hired by reticent employers. Those
    business owners, who break the law, could find themselves on the way to prison.

     

     The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 would require Congress to clarify the meaning of
    the 14th Amendment and thereby ending the practice of automatically granting
    U.S. citizenship to all U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. Unlike what the Left says it doesn’t need
    a Constitutional amendment. Lacking an amendment the US taxpayers are the
    recipients of the law, which allows an estimated 340.000 babies to become
    instant citizens annually adding to the growing deficit, to support these
    children and the Mother and the rest of the illegally settled populace; thus
    obtaining $113 billion dollars a year in taxpayer’s money. According to a Rasmussen Poll, a 65 % majority of the American voters
    oppose birthright citizenship unless one parent is a citizen? Many
    illegal nationals are using the lure of “birthright citizenship law,” (also
    known as “anchor babies”) to avoid U.S. immigration laws and gain permanent
    residency, if not citizenship. This is a misconception of the 14th Amendment to
    the U.S. Constitution that grants U.S. citizenship on those born on American
    soil, including children of illegal migrants and immigrants. Illegal immigrants
    are very much aware of the odds, estimated as low that ICE authorities will
    deport them, if they have a children who are an American citizens (and who as a
    windfall qualifies for taxpayer-funded welfare benefits). A
    few months ago the IRS revealed that illegal alien families received a rebate
    of $4.2 Billion dollars, applying fraudulent applications in child rebates with
    the bulk of illegal families not even having paid any taxes.

     

     

    In 1986
    President Reagan granted amnesty to what he thought at the time was only 3
    million illegal aliens. Deplorably, there was widespread document fraud and the
    number of illegal aliens seeking amnesty far exceeded expectations in the end.  Afterwards this passionate law, there was no
    political will to enforce the law against business owners. The 1986 IRCA amnesty
    dismally failed and in point of fact led to millions of more people entering
    the United States illegally. Since then there have been underhandedly seven
    small amnesties, not relayed to the public.

     

     

    Today, over
    1 million immigrants enter our country legally per year, while the illegal
    alien population grows by about 500,000 per year that are not apprehended. The
    border region still remains an anomaly, as Democrats as Homeland Security
    Secretary Janet Napolitano declare ‘that it’s more secure”. Tell that to the
    ranchers and land owners along the Southern border. Sometime soon there is
    going to be a mass carnage on the border, and then only the Democrats will bear
    the blame?  More than ever before we need
    a military presence as the drug Cartels have moved their elicit business
    ventures within our nation. The original strength of the fence has been
    weakened, and no more is it more observable in Arizona. Hundreds of miles
    remain open to drug criminals and terrorists that is in its self a National
    Security issue.

     

     

    However, these United States does and always has
    welcomed—LEGAL IMMIGRANTS—and always will. The 50 states also welcome highly
    skilled workers who are educated in the Sciences, Engineering and technology.
    These Immigrants will never end up in the welfare lines and taking taxpayer
    dollars. Nobody has ever communicated that outstanding professionally people,
    who would be beneficial to America’s businesses not be allowed to immigrate
    here; we just need an expedited procedure? 
    Nevertheless this country must restrain the poverty from other
    countries, as we cannot even look after our own people who have insufficient
    food and thousands who remain homeless.

     

    Since the public visibility of Arizona fighting to sustain
    its own legal residents with welfare and subsidiary programs, it has been
    verbally attacked by the Obama administration and the radical open border
    special interests. Not stopping there the heavy infiltrated leftist groups in
    the Dept of IN-Justice has also assaulted the States of Alabama, Georgia, Utah,
    Indiana and South Carolina to intimidate them into rescinding policing policies
    by the force of the courts. Not satisfied with the harassment on the
    sovereignty of these different States, they have now trying to enfeeble highly
    regarded citizens as Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpiao, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer,
    Former Congressman Tom Tancredo or anybody that does not conform to their
    assessment of the immigration laws. None of these policing policies would have
    been relevant if the US Government had enforced the immigration laws of 1986
    and 1974.

                                   

    Don’t sit
    around any longer but contact your Senator and House Representative starting
    tomorrow at 202-224-3121. Every
    unenthusiastic politician must be harassed, so this bill that only needs 28
    more sponsors can be read and placed in the House for voting upon. Tell them
    you want them to vote for Lamar Smith’s sponsorship of ‘The Legal Workforce Act’, this will ensure
    that illegal immigrants cannot be hired anymore, amid ruthless punishment for
    business that continue to mock this newly revised mandatory law. Start calling
    Congress because it might be your job on the line, as an estimated 8 million
    unauthorized workers are filling jobs right now. African Americans are having a
    terrible time locating good jobs, with national unemployment hovering around 9
    percent and black males unemployment surging to a staggering 17.6 percent,
    followed closely by legal Hispanics at around 13.1%. Only NumbersUSA has the
    truth on illegal immigration and the corruption that is Washington. In itself
    Washington has made it relatively easy to enter America, as being in America is
    just a civil offense. But foreign national cannot survive without fraudulent
    documentation. Illegal immigrants are not “undocumented.” They
    must use fraudulent documents such as counterfeit Social Security cards, forged
    drivers licenses, fake “green cards,” and phony birth certificates. Experts
    advise that approximately 75 % of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent
    Social Security cards to obtain employment, which is a—FELONY.  Entering American territory is an illegal act
    and should be clarified as a FELONY, as in Mexico and many industrialized nations.

    According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 200,000
    total jobs have been added to our economy over the past 12 months. Yet, the
    federal government imported another 1 million new foreign workers, while
    Congress stood by and did nothing. As 2011 comes to an end, it’s another year
    that the feds have turned their backs on unemployed Americans by not making
    immigration a jobs issue.

     

    ATTN: Keep
    pressing for the Keystone Pipeline, with less reliant on foreign countries that
    hate us and responsible prices for America and 20.000 jobs. Don’t let the
    environmentalists win this issue as we need a stable economy, unknown the far
    left who keep on spending.
