Koch Money Funds Open Borders Agenda; Attempts to Sway Supreme Court

Everyone knows that George Soros funds Leftwing causes and is a proponent of open borders, but even as the Koch brothers (David Koch died this year) have been tagged as the conservative movements money bags, not everyone knows the Kochs have pushed the immigration issue on the same side as Soros and his ilk.

Freedom Partners, my foot! The Left paints the Koch family as the boogeymen on the right. But, make no mistake they are on the same side as George Soros on the most important issue of all time for the survival of America—immigration.

Maybe it happened in your state, but about 8 years ago or so, Americans for Prosperity (Koch creation) came on the scene in Maryland and initially Tea Party groups were thrilled to have a well-funded ally—that is, until it became clear that the subject of immigration (the hottest issue in Maryland at that time) was off the table.

Now comes news that the Koch name is front and center in support of the so-called ‘Dreamers’ as Trump’s effort to dismantle an Obama era executive order that gave amnesty to scores of ‘children’ (not adults) who came to America illegally were given permission to stay and work in America (of course the plan is to eventually give them citizenship and voting rights) goes to the Supreme Court.

Koch’s interest is financial as the subject of labor, and lots of it, is the driving force behind much of the Open Borders movement’s agenda.  Humanitarian lingo is a shield they hide behind!

Koch groups take immigration art exhibit to DC ahead of DACA hearing at Supreme Court

The top nonprofit groups affiliated with conservative mega-donor Charles Koch are unveiling a pop-up art exhibit in Washington, D.C., meant to extol the benefits of immigration.

The “Common Ground” exhibit comes ahead of a Nov. 12 Supreme Court hearing on the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

It features nine doors with life-size video screens that show different aspects of immigrant life in the United States.

 

Common Ground propaganda—what a lot of money buys! https://www.usnews.com/news/us/articles/2019-10-03/koch-backed-groups-take-on-immigration-starting-in-miami

 

The exhibit is being brought to Washington by Stand Together, the main nonprofit arm of the Koch network, in conjunction with Americans for Prosperity and the Libre Institute, also nonprofit groups within the Koch orbit.

The exhibit will open Tuesday in Washington’s renovated Wharf area, after showings at Nashville’s Politicon and Miami’s Wynwood Art District.

It shows nine aspects of immigrant life, starting with a door titled “Meet Dreamers,” in allusion to DACA recipients, commonly known as “Dreamers.”

Dreamers are on the forefront of the immigration debate as the Supreme Court gears up for the Nov. 12 hearing, where it will decide on the legality of President Trump’s 2017 order to revoke the Obama-era program.

Under DACA, undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as minors, registered, paid a fee and passed a background check were given a reprieve from deportation and permission to work in the country. Those permits are renewable every two years.

The program was meant as a bridge while Congress legislated a permanent solution for Dreamers.

Trump in September 2017 canceled the program, arguing President Obama had overreached and single-handedly legislated on immigration by granting work permits in addition to deferred action on deportation.

And, for you, the worker whose salaries are kept low by a steady supply of cheap immigrant labor, or you whose community is destroyed by diversity, or you, taxpayers, who pay for welfare benefits and health care for Koch/Soros workers and non-workers, there are no money bags supporting your side of the argument.

There is only the President.

Will Immigrant Voters Sway 2020 Presidential Contest?

Opinions vary!

No wonder Hillary HATES the Electoral College—it dilutes the immigrant vote!

Of course Open Borders, Inc. is assuming that and at every corner of their movement they are driving the naturalization process and making it easy for the ‘new Americans’ to register to vote.

But, will the new voters turn out, and are they located in the right places? 

Those are just some of the questions raised in a very informative piece at a Middle Eastern news outlet (MENAFN) entitled:

Immigrant voters stand in Trump’s re-election path

Of course it is self-evident that the primary drive to flood the US with immigrants is to ultimately get them voting because at this point in time, a large majority will vote for the Dems.

Republican optimists think they can persuade a growing number who came here legally to support the rule of law, after all the legal immigrants did follow the law.  However, that won’t be nearly enough to counter what they fear is an anti-immigrant message from the President.

The Democrat Party message of free stuff is pretty persuasive as well!

But perhaps the most interesting nugget of information in here that I hadn’t thought of (duh!), and explains the enormous hatred the Electoral College holds for Dems, is that most immigrants choose to live in states like New York and California that the Dems have already sown-up.

In other words, more immigrant voters in NY and CA won’t change the Electoral map.

By encouraging more Democrat-voting immigrants to go to Texas, Georgia, Arizona and Florida (to name a few), they hope to get those states in line as well. Others to follow!

I guess that is why the US Refugee Program and its Leftwing resettlement agencies sought to bring the ‘joys of diversity’ to as many rural states and small towns as they could—so those refugees might someday be joined with other immigrants to change most of America.

Here is just some of the article you should read:

(MENAFN – Gulf Times) This is where a nation changes: a public school auditorium that moonlights as a veritable citizenship factory.

At the M O Campbell Educational Centre, where murals honouring the arts and sciences adorn the walls, US immigration officials routinely hold packed naturalisation ceremonies.

Immigrants approved for citizenship walk in, take the oath of allegiance, and walk out as Americans and as a small army of new voters.

‘It will never, ever be easier to register than it is this morning, US district judge Keith P Ellison [NOT Minnesota Ellison—ed], who presided over a ceremony last month, told the 2,155 immigrants from more than 100 countries who had just taken their citizenship oaths.

‘The record for registrations is 89% of those who are sworn in. … Let’s see if we can break that record today.

Amish Soni, a 34-year-old radiologist from India holding a small American flag, was one of the 85% who registered to vote that morning, aided by a volunteer from the League of Women Voters. He ‘definitely plans to vote in 2020, partly because he thinks the healthcare system should be fixed, but also: ‘I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump. And he’s far from the only one.

At ceremonies like these across the country, hundreds of thousands of immigrants are expected to receive their US citizenship and become eligible to vote before November 2020, gently reshaping and threatening the electoral path that President Donald Trump must thread to win re-election.

Over the last two decades, naturalised immigrants have grown into a force at the ballot box, with the US recently swearing in more than 700,000 foreign-born US citizens each year.

[….]

Surveys show that many of the new citizens are liberal-leaning, which is one of several demographic trends helping put some historically red states such as Texas, Arizona and Georgia closer to Democrats’ reach.

[….]

Diego says they will come out in opposition to Trump: “A lot of folks are responding to the climate of fear and division and general intimidation against immigrant and refugee communities.” You can be sure Diego and his pals are making sure that a climate of fear is sufficiently whipped-up!

According to data collected by the New Americans Campaign, a coalition of non-profits, almost a third of US immigrants hoping to naturalise this year were most interested in gaining the power to vote the ‘top reason by far, said Melissa Rodgers, the director of programmes at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, which runs the coalition.

[….]

Filing an application does not necessarily lead to naturalisation; the denial rate is usually about one in 10. Immigrant advocacy groups have complained that the Trump administration has allowed a backlog to pile up, putting some applicants at risk of missing the 2020 election.

Latino and Asian immigrants are particularly potent additions to the electorate, with turnout rates that are often five to eight percentage points higher than their natural-born counterparts, according to Census estimates.

[….]

At the presidential level, naturalised immigrants’ voting power is largely diluted by the electoral college. New citizens most commonly settle in Democratic bastions such as California and New York, where their votes are not expected to affect the next presidential election.

Along with Texas, Florida is a key exception. The battleground state adds between 70,000 and 100,000 naturalised citizens each year, with more than 20,000 born in communist Cuba, a more conservative voter bloc that has helped Republicans maintain razor-thin majorities in the state.

There is much more here!

I am by no means an election strategist.  What do you think?

I do know this:  The take away message for at least this next Presidential election cycle should be—save the Electoral College—and you better VOTE!

Brazilian Man Arrested for Bank Fraud, used Dunkin Donuts Gift Cards

I’m continually amazed at the complexity of the scams many foreigners are using to rip-off Americans and America.

Stories similar to this one pass me by every day and I can’t possibly post them all, but ones with a twist, like this one, are interesting and worth reporting.

Rarely are we rewarded with photos of the foreign fraudsters! Estefano Dall Anese Borlotti

In this case Estefano Dall Anese Borlotti, 35, is here illegally and according to one report on his arrest, he used a Brazilian passport to obtain a Florida drivers license—is that possible!

Can a person in the country apparently illegally (he is now being held on an immigration detainer) just willy-nilly get a drivers license?

Here is the bare outline of the scheme that enabled him to steal tens of thousands of dollars from New Hampshire banks.

Secret Service: Brazilian’s bank data scheme hits Seacoast ATMs

PORTSMOUTH — A Secret Service agent’s affidavit alleges a Brazilian man, with unnamed accomplices, were able to transfer stolen bank data onto Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards they used to withdraw more than $100,000 from bank ATMs in Manchester, Barrington, Dover, Durham and Portsmouth.

The affidavit was filed with the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire by Special Agent Timothy Benitez on Oct. 24, leading to a warrant for the arrest of Estefano Dall Anese Borlotti, 35.

Miami, Florida, police records show Borlotti was arrested Thursday for unrelated charges alleging he “reincoded” stolen bank data onto credit cards and is being held there on $22,500 bail, as well as an immigration detainer.

[….]

The federal charges in New Hampshire allege Borlotti reincoded bank account information onto Dunkin’ Donuts cards to withdraw cash at Federal Savings Bank locations in Barrington, Dover, Durham, Portsmouth and Rochester at different times in April and May.

[….]

The affidavit notes the Dunkin’ Donuts cards contained “a wide variety of both United States and foreign” bank account information and were used to withdraw cash across the Seacoast, as well as in Brazil.

[….]

Miami, Florida, police records report Borlotti is being held there on charges alleging trafficking counterfeit credit cards, organized fraud and two counts of credit card forgery/intent to defraud. He’s also being held on a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer, according to court records.

Read the whole story for more details on the scam.

And, see here where we learn about the drivers license:

Officials said Borlotti has a Brazilian passport, which he used to obtain a Florida driver’s license.

Such clever foreign fraudsters among us!

Trump Administration Halts Deportation of Possibly 300,000 Aliens

Hundreds of thousands of migrants have been here for more than a decade under a program that gave them temporary legal status, but is a flat-out sham.

Organized demonstrations like this one have happened wherever enclaves of certain ethnic groups have settled.

 

Temporary Protected Status protects those who were already in the country from about ten countries when something bad happened in their home country and that country claims it can’t take them back.  In order to get TPS status the migrant had to have been in the US already through some other means, including through illegal activities like visa overstays.

The protection was supposed to last no more than two years!

In reality the impoverished country from which they came doesn’t want them back because some are crooks and criminals, but others, those working and/or collecting benefits of some sort, send millions ‘home’ in the form of remittances.

Dollars that would go to fueling our economy now go to prop-up the economies of the third world.

Trump initially wanted to stop it, but the extensive legal network of Open Borders Inc. filed lawsuits and have thus caused the government to back down.

Hundreds of thousands (you know they have drivers licenses and are likely voting) will get to stay until about two weeks before the President is sworn in in January 2021.

Here is the depressing news at the Washington Examiner:

DHS to extend deportation protection program for citizens of six countries into 2021

The Trump administration is extending a program that allows illegal immigrants from six specific countries to obtain legal protection from deportation due to their home country’s inability to take back its own citizens.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, announced Friday it will continue granting protections under the Temporary Protected Status program for people from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan through Jan. 4, 2021. USCIS will publish a 27-page notice in the Federal Register detailing the plan on Monday.

The move could affect an estimated 300,000 in the U.S., according to a Congressional Research Service March estimate.

The move comes weeks after a federal judge ordered a temporary stop to the winding down of the six programs. DHS extended TPS due to the unresolved litigation over related cases.

Under TPS, those from certain countries who were in the U.S. illegally at the time of a natural disaster, war, famine, or similar situation, can apply for permission to legally remain at work in the country for two-year terms until their home country says it is stable for people to return.

Many of these countries had had their programs renewed many times, some for up to 15 years. Some recipients have been in the United States for 20 years under the program. [They put down roots and then scream how unfair America is for wanting them to go home!—ed]

[….]

Former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also extended protections for recipients from Syria, South Sudan, and Yemen. Citizens from 10 countries are TPS recipients as of Friday.

I have a few posts on TPS here at ‘Frauds and Crooks,’ but more here at RRW.

Just another reminder, I am writing almost daily again at Refugee Resettlement Watch because news is coming fast and furious these days on the US Refugee Admissions Program.

TPS recipients are not refugees!

Chief Hate-Monger at SPLC is out!

And, so fitting to learn the news on Halloween!

Heidi Beirich the Southern Poverty Law Center’s chief architect of their fake Hate Group List has resigned.

The Daily Beast suggests it is the latest in a leadership shakeup that followed the ousting of the SPLC’s founder Morris Dees back in the spring.

Maybe someone in the new leadership has figured out how dishonest and shoddy Ms. Heidi’s work has been!

One blogger does not make a GROUP!

I described here in February how I was once again added to their Hate Group list when I am a lone blogger—literally posting my opinions alone in my basement, and yes, at the moment in my pajamas!   One blogger is not a group!

Further demonstrating how sloppy their supposed investigations are, they couldn’t even get the town correctly identified where my supposed group meets to plot more hatefulness.

And, it wouldn’t be so bad, it would be funny! except for the fact that the mainstream media believes them with no questions asked.

Hmmm! Could the SPLC be expecting more lawsuits involving Ms. Beirich’s sloppy work?  She cost them $3.3 million last year!

I digress, here is the news from The Daily Beast (hat tip: Ted):

Southern Poverty Law Center Loses Intel-Gathering Boss

The leader of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project is stepping down amid an ongoing leadership shakeup at the anti-hate organization.

Heidi Beirich will leave the SPLC, ending a 20-year run with the organization, she told staffers Monday. Her exit follows several resignations and terminations of SPLC leadership this year—including its cofounder, who was fired amid sexual harassment allegations, and a deputy legal director who said the organization had “more work to do” to guarantee a respectful workplace.

Beirich has worked for the SPLC for 20 years. An expert on the neo-Confederate movement, she led the SPLC’s Intelligence Project, which produced much of the center’s front-facing journalism including its Intelligence Report magazine and Hatewatch blog. In a Monday memo to staff, she cited the two-decade anniversary as a reason for her departure.

“It was with a heavy, heavy heart given how deeply I care about this work and all of you amazing people,” she wrote. “As some of you may know, I reached my second decade here (yikes I’m old!) in September and I’ve felt for a while now that it may be time for a change for me.

It’s been a long and intense last few years for me, especially since Trump graced us with his presence and then with the challenges here at SPLC, and I am ready for a break and, after a few months of Netflix, a new start.”

But recent decades reportedly saw internal complaints against [Morris] Dees. The SPLC acknowledged this year that he was twice investigated for “inappropriate conduct,” although Dees denies wrongdoing. In March, two separate sets of SPLC employees penned letters to the center’s leadership, referencing allegations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination connected to Dees.

“Allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination and racism threaten the moral authority of this organization and our integrity along with it,” one of the employee groups wrote.

Enjoy your Netflix, and good riddance….!
