LessGovernment - Real Immigration Reform: A Financial Means Test for Every Applicant

by  Seton Motley

We will have today an “immigration reform” proposal announced by a bipartisan eight Senator bloc.  And tomorrow we will endure President Barack Obama’s “immigration reform” speech.  


“Immigration reform” as proposed by both sides nearly always includes some sort of amnesty “path to citizenship” for illegal aliens.  And no real reform of the way we decide who gets to come here and who does not.  Not to mention the wide-open borders we make but a feigned attempt to enforce.  


All of which will lead to increased taxes on us, and increased debt on our children.  Because immigrants are on government programs far more frequently than native born Americans.


  • ·         In 2009 (based on data collected in 2010), 57 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal and illegal) with children (under 18) used at least one welfare program, compared to 39 percent for native households with children.


  • ·         (H)ouseholds with children comprised entirely of immigrants (no U.S.-born children)...had a welfare use rate of 56 percent in 2009.


  • ·         Illegal immigrant households with children primarily use food assistance and Medicaid, making almost no use of cash or housing assistance. In contrast, legal immigrant households tend to have relatively high use rates for every type of program.


(Emphasis ours.)


Clearly the answer is not to make illegal aliens legal.  Because that actually increases their use of government programs.  Which makes sense - once “out of the shadows” they are then free to get in the sunshine-washed government money lines.


Nearly everything anyone is proposing as “immigration reform” should be preempted by something simple and rational - a financial means test.  


If you are going to be on one or more government programs when you get here - you don’t get here.  And if you are already here and on one or more programs - you can’t advance your residency status.


Applying to be a guest worker?  A resident alien?  A citizen?  Illegally here and want a path to citizenship?  Means tests all round.  


Some pro-amnesty folks will respond:


“That’s an argument for welfare reform, not opposition to ‘immigration reform.’”


To which we respond:


“Fine - go first reform welfare, and then get back to us on your definition of ‘immigration reform.’”


We simply cannot afford to continue being the blank check to the planet.

Harold - Who Runs the USA: International Banking Interests

Hello, Greetings;  In the last ten months or so I have exposed myself to a whole new education regarding government.  Come to realize all our issues with our state of economy, governance is all planned.  Situations just don’t happen, they are all planned by the super intelligentsias that occupy the plant earth.  Who are these super intelligent elites?  International Bankers.  They own the Federal Reserve, which controls the IRS, ABA, Deposit Trust Co, that holds all major transactions in the USA, through the IMF(International Monetary Fund).  They own and control the UN, which was established by Allen, John Dulles and John D, Rockerfeller.  I will give some examples of ownership.  Of course the following  I lifted off the internet

Who owns the Federal Reserve?  The Independent Treasury Act of 1921 suspended the "de jure" (meaning - "by right of legal establishment") Treasury Department of the United States government. Our sniveling Congress turned the Treasury Department over to a 'private corporation', the Federal Reserve, and their agents. The bulk of ownership of the Federal Reserve System, a very well kept secret from the American Person, is held by these primary banking interests:

Rothschild Bank of London
Rothschild Bank of Berlin
Warburg Bank of Hamburg
Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
Lazard Brothers of Paris
Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
Goldman, Sachs of New York
Lehman Brothers of New York
Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York

The Federal Reserve Corporation is at the root of most of the
laws of our country. It is the *STATE* of the United States

"The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes!"
"We are Jumping-Jacks -- they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes!"
John Swinton had been managing editor of the New York Sun until he started his own journal - John Swinton's Paper in 1883. It became one of the most influential and interesting journals in the country. It played a significant role in the upheaval of the American working class in the mid 1880's. Swinton was active in the free-state movement in Kansas and later worked for the New York Times.
Still believe we have a free and independent press? Hardly. Here's why -
The New York Times owns the Boston Globe. Look at who owns both:

Cede & Co., c/o The Depository Trust Co.
United States Trust Company of New York
Wells Fargo Institutional Trust Company
Bank of New York
Bank One Ohio Trust Company
Bankers Trust Company
Boston Safe Deposit & Trust Co.
Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.
The Chase Manhattan Bank, N.A.
Boston Safe Deposit & Trust Co.
Goldman, Sachs & Co.
Mellon Bank, N.A.
Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner & Smith
Morgan Guaranty Trust Co.
Northern Trust Co.
Smith Barney, Inc.

What do you think the chances are that you are ever going to hear a single story that the Federal Reserve Banking Cartel doesn't approve first? And which other media sources are owned by the Federal Reserve Banking Cartel established in 1913?

I am leading up to the purpose of this e-mail.  Immigration and link to a video sent to me.  While everybody has their own views on immigration, nobody has got right or even close.  I always thought the issue with immigration was the money leaving the U.S. to Mexico.  I had part of it.  What do Mexicans working on farms in our area do?  They send the money earned, home.  What other cash is sent to Mexico?  Come on, you haven’t hit a blank!!  Drug money.  While we as patriots are oppose to illegal aliens and drug trade.  Guess who’s in favor of the drug trade.  International Bankers?  Why?  Illegal aliens working in America and drug trade is the only cash business they have.  All other business the bankers do or have is debt.  I showed the banks above for a reason, what major bank is missing?  Wachovia.  Is Wachovia a renegade?  Who are the owners?  I don’t know.  According to the video, Wachovia cause or contributed to the down turn of our economy.   Wachovia launders most the drug money for drug cartels of Mexico.  This is why the borders are not closed.  My argument, partly, for decriminalizing drugs, is illegal drugs would have no value.  Now I realize decriminalizing drugs probably will cause a major depression after watching this video.  How much of the video is true?  Do not know.  I did my part trying to educate you, you can your share to research the video if in doubt.
