Illegal Aliens Must Go!

America was built by Immigrants--LEGAL immigrants. Illegal aliens have no legal or moral basis for being in America. All illegal aliens must be deported and U.S. borders must be secured to prevent more invaders from coming here!

Response to Questions Posed by Brian White of the Columbia Chronicle

In an e-mail dated April 11, 2007, Mr. Brian White, Reporter and Associate Editor for the Columbia Chronicle, posed several questions to John W. Lillpop pertaining to illegal immigration.

John Lillpop's answers are as follows. Mr. White's questions are also repeated for ease of reference:




1. Is John Lillpop your full, real name? What's your age and
what do you do for a living? What is your blogging name, if you have one?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John W. Lillpop is my full, real name. I have no blogging name.

With all due respect, my age and occupation are personal and are not relevant to this discussion.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. What is your exact involvement with The Coalition Against
Illegal Immigration?


All of my answers, including those e-mailed yesterday, reflect my views, and only my views.

I do not speak on behalf of The Coalition Against Illegal Immigration, nor do I have any official affiliation with CAII.

Rather, I am an individual who feels strongly about illegal immigration, and I choose to express my views on the CAII forum, as well as other sites on the Internet.

Brian Boomer is the administrator of the CAII forum. Please visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/caiisb/ should you have any further questions about CAII.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. You mentioned you don't support the STRIVE act? Why not?

I am opposed to any proposal that rewards those who have invaded America.

In 1986, America granted amnesty as a means for ending illegal immigration forever. 20 years later, the problem is several times worse, and because of 9/11, far more dangerous.


STRIVE would likewise encourage additional illegal aliens to violate our borders and laws.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


4. Since you don't support the STRIVE act, could you briefly
describe how you think the U.S. government should approach illegal
immigration?


My position is set forth in a recent Open Letter to the President and Congress on the subject of immigration reform.

That letter is as follows:


Mr. President, Honorable Members of Congress:

Because our government has refused to secure America's borders and enforce our immigration laws, our nation is struggling to deal with 12-30 million illegal aliens who have entered this great nation unlawfully.

Many are good-hearted, hard working folks, simply looking for a better life.

However, that description also applies to scores of millions of others throughout the world, just as eager, and just as deserving, for a chance at the American Dream.

But while America is overwhelmed with illegal aliens who have willfully violated our borders and laws, people in other parts of the world are ordered to stand in line, wait their turn, and do that which is required for legal immigration.

We tell such hopefuls that America operates in accordance with the rule of law, and that their immigration wishes must be handled fairly, according to law.

Many of those waiting in line are highly educated and well trained.

Unfortunately, the same can not be said for most illegal aliens currently in America.

Predominately from third-world Latin nations, they are typically non-English speaking, unskilled and poor. Such people impose extraordinary burdens on our all-ready stressed education, health care, and legal systems, and cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions each year.

In addition, while young American men and women are sent to serve in harm's way in Afghanistan and Iraq, our own borders remain unsecured, making America vulnerable to further terrorist attacks.

Failure to secure the home front during time of war can only be seen as a mockery of the American lives and treasury sacrificed to secure freedom in foreign lands 10,000 miles from home.

Americans are well aware of the fact that immigration is the subject of intense debate in the hallowed halls of congress. We also hear that some legislative proposals would actually forgive those who have broken into America in defiance of our borders and laws.

In Washington parlance, the euphemism is "Guest Worker" Program.

Guest worker is understood by everyone to be "amnesty," and is totally unacceptable to a large majority of the American people.

To reward those who are here illegally would only serve to invite another 30 million or so to invade, and would be an unmitigated outrage.

At some point, our government (you) must decide that America is a sovereign nation with borders and laws that really mean something.

Again: Guest worker is amnesty and is totally unacceptable.

A sensible approach to immigration reform should incorporate the ideas offered below:

Employers Must Be Forced to Follow the Law

Businesses that employ illegal aliens represent a major threat to U.S. homeland security and the war on terror. Such businesses must be punished to the full extent of the law, including severe criminal sanctions against management.

Deportations Essential

America can no longer tolerate a policy whereby the immigrant decides unilaterally to invade America---and gets away with it!

The U.S. government must have total control over who enters the nation, where they will reside, for what purpose authorized, and date by which that individual must leave.

No reform scenario should sanction illegals currently here. Intelligent reform should require that every illegal alien be deported.

Use Military Force to Secure Borders

Our borders must be secured by sufficient military troops and or national guardsmen as needed to prevent illegal entry into the U.S.

Temporary Work Permit (TWP)

A worker in a foreign nation wishing to APPLY for a TWP should be allowed to do so, PROVIDED he/she has not been in America unlawfully within the last five years.

Other conditions

An American employer seeking services from a foreign worker should, in effect, sponsor the worker. That means assuring there is NO burden to the community by way of health care costs,
education, crime, and the like.

Employers may chose to form cooperatives to purchase health insurance at group rates. However, any and all costs of such coverage should be absorbed by employers, not taxpayers.

A TWP should authorize a term of not greater than 18 months, and pertain only to the worker.(A worker's family could cost U.S. taxpayers substantially for health care, educational and legal services systems, thereby mitigating any benefit realized by employing the worker.)

No worker on a TWP must be allowed to parent an "anchor baby." Existing U.S. laws conferring citizenship on those born to illegal aliens must be changed, retroactively.

Criminal behavior of any sort, even a misdemeanor, should require immediate deportation of the worker.

All of the worker's income should be subject to tax withholding according to procedures administered by employers.

The worker should acknowledge, in writing, his/her understanding and agreement that the TWP has a limited, non-extendable term, and that it confers no other benefits such as drivers' license, social welfare, in-state tuition breaks, or citizenship.

Employers must assure that the worker leaves the U.S. before expiration of the TWP. Any violations should cause the employer to be severely punished.

The labor needs of American business can be satisfied without jeopardizing homeland security or the economic and cultural stability of the American people.

However, we must secure the borders permanently, force employers to obey the law, deport those here illegally, and stop making it so easy and attractive for illegal immigrants to invade America.

Any amnesty or "guest worker" proposal is NOT an acceptable alternative.

Trusting each of You to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, I remain Sincerely Yours,



John W. Lillpop
California

In my view,my proposal meets the needs of American business while providing a measure of compassion to those seeking work from foreign nations.

5. Some people might read your blogs and interpret them as hate
columns. Are they? Are you prejudice against people of color? Where does
your anti-illegal immigration sentiment come from?

In order to do justice to your question, I need to break it down into manageable parts. That will inevitably cause me to be less brief that you requested.

Still, I am sure that integrity and the pursuit of truth are more important than word count.

Hate and Prejudice Against People of Color:

My views on illegal immigration are fairly close to those expressed by a well known Democrat Senator who said the following:

“In response to increased terrorism and abuse of social programs by aliens, (I) today introduced the first and only comprehensive immigration reform bill in Congress. Currently, an alien living illegally in the United States often pays no taxes but receives unemployment, welfare, free medical care, and other federal benefits. Recent terrorist acts, including the World Trade Center bombing, have underscored the need to keep violent criminals out of the country.”

This Democrat senator introduced a bill, titled the “Immigration Stabilization Act,” to overhaul the nation's immigration laws, and call for a massive scale-down of immigrants allowed into the country. The bill also changes asylum laws to prevent phony asylum seekers.

The senator said the U.S. open door policy is being abused at the expense of honest, working citizens.

The senator continued:

"We are a country founded upon fairness and justice. An individual in real threat of torture or long-term incarceration because of his or her political beliefs can still seek asylum. But this bill closes the door to those who want to abuse America's inherent generosity and legal system.” "Our borders have overflowed with illegal immigrants placing tremendous burdens on our criminal justice system, schools and social programs. The Immigration and Naturalization Service needs the ability to step up enforcement. Our federal wallet is stretched to the limit by illegal aliens getting welfare, food stamps, medical care, and other benefits often without paying any taxes.”

“Safeguards like welfare and free medical care are in place to boost Americans in need of short-term assistance. These programs were not meant to entice freeloaders and scam artists from around the world. Even worse, Americans have seen heinous crimes committed by individuals who are here illegally.”


Specific provisions proposed by the senator in the Immigration Stabilization Act include:

* Reduces annual legal immigration levels. Relatives other than spouse or minor children admitted only if already on immigration waiting lists and their admission does not raise annual immigration levels above approved level.

* Reforms asylum rules to prevent aliens from entering the United States illegally under phony "asylum" claims.

* Expands list of felonies considered "aggravated" felonies requiring exclusion and deportation of criminal aliens. Allows courts to order deportation at time of sentencing.

* Increases penalties for failing to depart or re-entering the United States after a final order of deportation order. Increases maximum penalties for visa fraud from five years to 10 years.

* Curtails alien smuggling by authorizing interdiction and repatriation of aliens seeking to enter the United States unlawfully by sea. Increases penalties for alien smuggling.

* Adds "alien smuggling" to the list of crimes subject to sanctions under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

* Expands the categories of property that are forfeited when used to facilitate the smuggling or harboring of illegal aliens.

* Clarifies that a person born in the United States to an alien mother who is not a lawful resident is not a U.S. citizen. This will eliminate incentive for pregnant alien women to enter the United States illegally, often at risk to mother and child, for the purpose of acquiring citizenship for the child and accompanying federal financial benefits.

* Mandates that aliens who cannot demonstrably support themselves without public or private assistance are excludable. This will prevent admission of aliens likely to be dependent on public financial support. This requirement extends to the sponsor of any family sponsored immigrant.

* Increases border security and patrol officer positions.


So, Mr. White what sort of a Democrat would take such a politically incorrect--but morally and legally correct—stance?

Perhaps the Democrat is Zell Miller from the great state of Georgia? Or could it be a reincarnation of Alabama’s late firebrand, George
Wallace?

The answer is: None of the above!

In fact, Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) introduced the Immigration
Stabilization Act in the United States Senate in 1993. The statements quoted
above are from a press release issued by Reid’s office on August 5, 1993.

Unfortunately, the senator subsequently decided that Democrats need illegal aliens as new voters in order to win elections. He no longer speaks the truth although the problem is many times greater now than it was in 1993, AND America has been attacked.

Do you regard Mr. Reid's statements as "hate speech"? Do you suppose he is prejudiced against people of color?


Hate and Prejudice Against People of Color(Continued)

The gist of my answer above is that America is a sovereign nation that has every right and obligation to enforce its borders and immigration laws.

Those borders and laws pertain to everyone whether he or she be brown, black, red, yellow, lily-white, or a hybrid mix of lavender and green.

The issue is neither hate nor race: Rather it is rule of law and American sovereignty!

May I refer you please to the law of the land in our nearest southern neighbor, Mexico? The article below will make it clear that Mexico is quite intolerant of those who invade their nation.

Is the Mexican government consumed by hatred and prejudice against brown people from Latin nations to it's south?

If Mexico is justified in it's very rigid immigration standards? Why should America be any less firm?


The Article: Need Immigration Reform Let's try Mexico's Law in America!


Mexico seems to be wallowing in "Do As I say, Not As I Do" hypocrisy when it comes to immigration laws. Successive presidents and foreign ministers of the nation have called for leniency on the part of the U.S. when it comes to Mexicans coming to America illegally across U.S. borders.

Do Mexican leaders practice what they preach when it comes to, say, an American couple seeking a cheaper, slower-paced lifestyle? Not on your tortilla!

Mexico, according to journalist and terrorist expert Dr. J. Michael Waller, has some of the strictest immigration laws of any country, and they enforce them to the letter.

Here's a link to his commentary:
http://www.citizensforaconstitutionalrepublic.com/waller5-8-06.html

Waller informs us that "Mexico has a radical idea for a rational immigration policy that most Americans would love. However, Mexican officials haven’t been sharing that idea with us as they press for the U.S. Congress to adopt the McCain-Kennedy immigration reform bill."

Waller adds: "That’s too bad, because Mexico, which annually deports more illegal aliens than the United States does, has much to teach us about how it handles the immigration issue.

Under Mexican law, it is a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico."

Waller sharpens his point by commenting on the unnerving tendency of some legal scholars in the U.S. to use foreign laws as a reference point for deciding issues in America.

Waller states, "At a time when the Supreme Court and many politicians seek to bring American law in line with foreign legal norms, it’s noteworthy that nobody has argued that the U.S. look at how Mexico deals with immigration and what it might teach us about how best to solve our illegal immigration problem."

And whereas U.S. laws are often cumbersome, complex instruments fathomable only to lawyers who charge upwards of $300 an hour, things are more to the point in Mexican law.

Again, quoting Waller from the referenced link: "Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

• In Mexico legally;

• Have the means to sustain themselves economically;

• Not destined to be burdens on society;

• Of economic and social benefit to society;

• Of good character and have no criminal records; and

• Contributors to the general well being of the nation.


"The law also ensures that:

• Authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;

• Foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;

• Foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;

• Foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;

• Foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;

• Those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison."


Who could disagree with such a law? It makes perfect sense," Waller states with unassailable logic.

Unfortunately, very little "perfect sense" is obvious in the ongoing debate on immigration reform here in the United States. Rather, the interests of the American people are often ignored or made subordinate by politicians from both parties.

Of greater interest to some in Washington, D.C., is feeding an insatiable corporate appetite for cheap labor, satisfying a wicked lust for cheap votes, and giving in to an inexplicable drive to promote America's decay into a third-world abyss.

These ignoble interests trump rule of law, homeland security, economic and social stability, and preservation of American language and culture in the minds of some elected officials sworn to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution.

By contrast, Waller notes that Mexican law and officials are focused on numero uno--that being Mexico!

Waller writes, "The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens – and the denial of many fundamental rights to non-citizens, both illegal and illegal.

"Under the constitution, the Ley General de Población, or General Law on Population spells out specifically the country’s immigration policy.

"It is an interesting law – and one that should cause us all to ask, 'Why is our southern neighbor pushing us to water down our own immigration laws and policies, when its own immigration restrictions are the toughest on the continent?'

"If a felony is a crime punishable by more than one year in prison, then Mexican law makes it a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico.

"If the United States adopted such statutes, Mexico no doubt would denounce them as a manifestation of American racism and bigotry."

Waller supports his main thesis by citing key articles of Mexico's main
law.

Again quoting from the commentary at http://www.citizensforaconstitutionalrepublic.com/waller5-8-06.html:

"We looked at the immigration provisions of the Mexican constitution. Now let’s look at Mexico’s main immigration law.

"Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

• Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of
contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)

• 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. (Article 34)

• 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 Mexican laws, and
when 'they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.' (Article 37)

• The Secretary of Governance may 'suspend or prohibit the admission of
foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.' (Article 38)

• Mexican 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. (Article
73)

• A National Population Registry keeps track of 'every single individual who
comprises the population of the country,' and verifies each individual’s identity.
(Articles 85 and 86)

• A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).

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. (Article
116)

• Foreigners who sign government documents 'with a signature that is false or
different from that which he normally uses' are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)

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. (Article 117)

• Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)

• Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico – such as working with out a permit – can also be imprisoned.

• Under Mexican 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 pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country
illegally. (Article 123)

• Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico
instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)

• Foreigners who 'attempt against national sovereignty or security' will be
deported. (Article 126)

• Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered
criminals under the law.

• A Mexican 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. (Article 127)

• Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)"


Waller summarizes his review of Mexican law with this statement: "All of the above runs contrary to what Mexican leaders are demanding of the United States. The stark contrast between Mexico’s immigration practices versus its American immigration preaching is telling. It gives a clear picture of the Mexican government’s agenda: to have a one-way immigration relationship with the United States."

Waller concludes his excellent work with a challenge that should be visited upon all 535 members of the U.S. Congress and President Bush as they consider immigration reform.

Waller's challenge:

"Let’s call Mexico’s bluff on its unwarranted interference in U.S. immigration policy.

Let’s propose, just to make a point, that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member nations standardize their immigration laws by using Mexico’s own law as a model."

Congratulations to J. Michael Waller.* His is a voice of sanity that needs to be heard, especially by inmates wandering the halls and cloak rooms of Capitol Hill and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Where does your anti-illegal immigration sentiment come from?

My opposition to illegal immigration is based on a deep, abiding respect for the rule of law, and for the scores of millions of immigrants who have come to America lawfully and who have helped to make our democracy the most successful and prosperous in human history.


I am also concerned that millions of people all over the world are still standing in line and waiting for a chance at the American Dream. Why should people who have ignored our borders and laws be rewarded for "cutting" in front of those who abide by the law?\

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. How long have you been blogging about this topic?

I have been blogging for about one year.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Thank you and, if you can, please keep your answers concise.

You are welcome. Although I have not been brief, I believe these answers are concise.

Thanks for standing up for us John.

If you go against your group interests while black you're an uncle tom, if you do so while white you're open-minded. If you express group interests while black you're standing up for your people, if you do so while white you're racist.

"Liberals and respectable conservatives say there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries."

"The Netherlands and Belgium are as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them."

"Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites."

"What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?"

"How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?"

"And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?"

"But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews."

"They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white."

"Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white."
