Fake Cheerleaders (Disguised Prostitutes?) Apprehended at Miami Airport

Only one thing can be said with certainty about the patriotic immigration reform effort. We may think you’ve seen it all...but we haven’t.

On September 30, a report came out of Miami that a Colombian man had been arrested for visa fraud after trying to smuggle 16 young women, some minors, into the United States by using fraudulent documents.

The women came from Cali to allegedly participate in a South Florida cheerleading contest. Daustin Salazar and six others plead guilty.

Mike Shea, acting agent in charge of Miami ICE said:

A Tale of Two Countries

With most of the immigration debate being focused on the U.S./Mexican border and on enforcing the immigration laws to punish employers who intentionally hire illegal aliens, one of the biggest failures of the immigration system has yet to be discussed.  That issue of immigration fraud.

Fraud is committed when an individual provides false or misleading information on an application so that the beneficiary of that application acquires a benefit he (she) would not be entitled to if all of the material facts were known.

We Are Not Alone

When we ask for the enforcement of our immigration laws, we often feel as an island.  We are labeled with derogatory names and feel very alone in our efforts.  With this, I wanted to know how other countries handle their illegal immigration dilemma and what they say.

What if you were an illegal alien worker in Taiwan?

Laboring Under a Misconception

There are currently a number of arguments being made for having local governments ignore the immigration laws and, on closer scrutiny all of those arguments fail to make sense or protect our nation and our citizens in a number of ways.  Those who pose these arguments are often identified in the media as being “Pro-Immigrant.”  In point of fact they are “Illegal Alien Exploiters” seeking to profit by the exploitation of vulnerable and desperate illegal aliens.  These exploiters are also oblivious to the harm the hiring of illegal aliens does to American

Gaming the Immigration System

There is a wonderful Yiddish term that has become a part of the American lexicon- that term is “Chutzpah!”

The classic example of chutzpah is the young man who kills both parents and, upon conviction for his heinous crimes, pleads for mercy because he is an orphan!

It's all your fault

Immediately prior to his suicide, Joaquin Lerma Luna dressed in a suit, went to each family member in the home to tell them goodbye then entered the bathroom and shot himself.  Seventeen years and six months earlier, his parents brought him into the US ilegally.

Pew Hispanic Center Report Shows That Aliens Live with Little Fear of Deportation; Add to Population

In more than 25 years of patriotic immigration reform activism, I’ve never been able to understand one thing: why the illegal immigration lobby makes such a big deal of amnesty when the aliens are living in complete comfort as it is.

Whenever an amnesty push comes up, especially when it’s reinforced by huge public marches in downtown Los Angeles or on Capitol Hill, citizens get riled up, phone their Congressmen and demand that aliens be promptly deported.

GAO Confirms Link Between Aliens and Arizona Wildfires

The U. S. Government Accountability Office released its study this week that has linked 30 fires that started during a five-year period to illegal aliens. Read the complete report here.

The GAO findings vindicated Senator John McCain who earlier this year said that Arizona fires are often caused by illegal border crossers. The Hispanic lobby immediately charged McCain with scapegoating.

Today, however, McCain could---and did---gloat. After his office released the report, McCain said:

The Amusement Park

Shortly after I began doing interviews on television and radio programs about the immigration crisis that contributed to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 I was invited to participate in a successful of discussions on Lou Dobbs Tonight that aired on CNN.  In one of my earliest appearances Lou decided to address the impact of illegal aliens on healthcare.  He was understandably “torqued” because illegal aliens, who had come to use the emergency rooms of hospitals and then not paying for their treatment, were driving hospitals into bankruptcy.  Th
