Michael Bloomberg’s Plan for Immigration: We Need More!

I pay fairly close attention to the 2020 campaign news and especially when it comes to the Dem candidate’s plans for immigration should they regain the White House.

But, I think it’s odd that with all the other news about Michael Bloomberg, there is little mentioned about his now decade-long plan to increase immigration as seen in his National Partnership for a New American Economy.

I told you all about it here last November, but I have been writing about it off and on for years.

Michael Bloomberg’s Ready-Made Network of Cities in Support of His Open Borders Agenda

 

Now I see that there is a short piece at Bloomberg news briefly summarizing his immigration plans.

But, strangely, no mention of his organization that has been gradually softening up mayors by handing out grant money and praising elected officials for a decade through his New American Economy network.

Michael Bloomberg Unveils Plan for ‘Broken’ Immigration System

Michael Bloomberg proposed an immigration plan similar to proposals from his moderate [LOL!] Democratic presidential rivals that includes reversing President Donald Trump’s policies, creating a path to U.S. citizenship for undocumented residents and allowing “place-based” visas.

Bloomberg says he wants more foreign born docs and other medical professionals admitted to the US to compete with your kids going through medical school. Docs like Moses deGraft-Johnson? https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2020/02/17/florida-another-new-american-doctor-charged-rips-us-off-for-millions/

Bloomberg’s plan contains many of the same elements as those offered by Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg. They include rescinding Trump’s travel ban, ending family separations at the border, protecting so-called dreamers — young adults who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children — as well as increasing the cap on resettling refugees and updating the asylum process.

The former New York mayor does not go as far as progressive rivals Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who would decriminalize migration.

[….]

Bloomberg would expand temporary worker visas to address labor shortages and allow certain localities to petition for “place-based” immigrant visas to meet economic or social needs in their communities.

For regular readers of ‘Frauds and Crooks‘ this should give you a chuckle….

He would also allow more opportunities for foreign-born doctors, nurses and other health professionals to address the shortage of health-care workers in under-served areas.

More here.

And, now see his platform that includes increasing refugee admissions to 125,000 per year!  (Trump’s is presently set at 18,000.)

End policies that run counter to our deepest values as Americans

Mike will rescind President Trump’s disgraceful travel ban, end family separations at the border, establish rigorous safeguards for children, and promote alternatives to detention for individuals and families who pose no threat to public safety. Mike will set the annual refugee resettlement target at 125,000 and also restore fairness and timeliness to the asylum process. And he will honor and protect immigrant service members, veterans and their families.

[….]

Mike will create a federal Office of New Americans to support the integration of newcomers….

With that he is recycling an Obama White House plan.

Miami: Dozens Busted in Medicare Drug Fraud Scheme

According to one article on the latest fraud bust involving Medicare, Florida is number one in the nation for such schemes.

And, every time I see a story like this I imagine the massive fraud we would have if Elizabeth Warren got her dream program—Medicare for all!

Some of the names of those ‘new Americans’ arrested include: Ingrid Perdomo, Stirlitz Pio Diaz, Luiba Rodriguez Leyva, Diana Cabrera, Katia Ramirez, Daymis Sanchez, and Yanelys Lozano.  Cubans I’m guessing.

New American Economy?

When you hear from groups like Michael Bloomberg’s New American Economy about the entrepreneurial spirit and economic benefits ‘new Americans’ contribute to our country think about this bunch!  And, don’t forget, Bloomberg is a leading advocate for more immigration!

 

There are actually two separate busts…

Here is the first story from Tuesday that explains how the scam works from NBC Miami:

Nearly 20 Suspects Charged in Multi-Million Dollar Medicare Fraud Across 2 Miami Pharmacies

Nearly two dozen people have been charged by Florida’s Office of Statewide Prosecution for their involvement in a multi-million dollar Medicare fraud scheme that took place at two Miami pharmacies over the course of several years.

A total of 19 suspects are facing charges including organized fraud, racketeering, grand theft and money laundering, according to arrest warrants released Tuesday.

The scheme made use of professional beneficiaries, which are people who allow their Medicare benefits to be exploited by fraudsters in exchange for monetary compensation, the warrants said.

In this case, the professional beneficiaries involved were receiving up to 30 percent of the profits from each medication that was fraudulently billed by either Santander Pharmacy or Wynwood Family Pharmacy Corporation, the warrants said.

The beneficiaries would visit doctors in order to acquire prescriptions for medications they did not need. The prescriptions would be taken to Santander or Wynwood pharmacies, where the drugs would be charged to Medicare even though the drugs would never actually be dispensed or received.

The drugs that were fraudulently billed tended to be highly expensive, such as anti-psychotic drugs, according to the arrest warrants.

Since the operation began in Santander Pharmacy in 2015, more than $4 million in federal funds has been stolen using this method.

According to the arrest warrants, South Florida leads the country in this kind of Medicare fraud, particularly Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Individuals establish a pharmacy by submitting corporate documents and obtaining a pharmacy license from the Florida Department of Health, and then commit fraud by submitting claims to Medicare for services that are never actually rendered or needed.

From the Miami Herald yesterday:

At least 30 people have been charged in connection with a string of South Florida pharmacies state authorities say fraudulently billed Medicare — a scam that continues to be one of Miami’s most lucrative illegal industries.

Police officers on Tuesday began arresting dozens associated with Tata Pharmacy Discount, Lozano Health Care, and in a separate case, Wynwood Family Pharmacy and Santander Pharmacy.

Those arrested in the sprawling case are facing charges of racketeering, organized scheme to defraud and money laundering.

The investigation was spearheaded by the Statewide Prosecutor’s Office, Miami-Dade police and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Medicare fraud has long been rampant in South Florida, costing taxpayers billions. Over the past decade, pharmacies have become particular cash cows, with owners and middlemen scouring nursing homes, paying kickbacks to elderly patients in exchange for allowing them to bill for unnecessary medicines in their names.

I have more Medicare/Medicaid/Food Stamp fraud cases in my queue to post which I hope to get to in the coming days.

Illegal Alien Mexican on Trial for Gruesome Murder Costs Iowa Taxpayers a Bundle

The next time you see one of those glowing economic studies from some place like Welcoming America or the New American Economy about how immigrants boost the economy in places like Baltimore, take a look and see if the cost of arrests, trials and incarcerations of alien (aka new American) criminals are factored in.

Mollie-Tibbetts2-640x480
Molly and the Mexican man accused of murdering her…

 
A few days ago, John Binder at Breitbart reminded us of the dreadful murder in Iowa last year of a beautiful young woman—Molly Tibbets.
Do you remember the story? You probably do, but the mainstream media has moved on (once it was learned that the suspect is yes, an illegal alien).
Read Binder’s account of the latest slap at Americans.
And, as you do, ponder this:  it was a Bill Clinton EXECUTIVE ORDER that put in place the requirement that local/state governments (and even businesses like hospitals) must pay for interpreters for any aliens with problems.
It is not a law passed by Congress and apparently no President since Clinton has considered revoking it.
Binder at Breitbart,

Mollie Tibbetts Trial: Taxpayers Billed $12.5K for Illegal Alien’s Translator

 

Iowa taxpayers have been billed more than $12,000 thus far to provide a full-time court translator to illegal alien Cristhian Bahena Rivera, accused of murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts in Brooklyn, Iowa last year.
In August 2018, Bahena Rivera, a 25-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was charged with Tibbetts’ murder after police said he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman.
After a nationwide search, Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield in Poweshiek County, Iowa. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and worked on a dairy farm using a stolen ID and Social Security card after allegedly crossing the U.S.-Mexico border as a child.
Court records obtained by local media reveal that a translator for Bahena Rivera — from Missouri — has cost taxpayers in Iowa about $12,485 thus far.
This is the latest perk Bahena Rivera has enjoyed thus far while preparing for the murder trial against him, which is supposed to begin in November. This year, the illegal alien’s attorneys successfully got the trial date moved back, attempted to have his alleged murder confession thrown out, were rewarded with more than $3,000 in taxpayer funds to obtain an expert witness, and successfully got his trial moved to a less white, more Hispanic-populated region of the state.

Recently a reader at my facebook page commented that I post scare stories and don’t tell people what to do.
The scare stories are meant to spur patriots to action!
When I first began writing Frauds and Crooks I regularly told readers what they might do about the news I was posting, but wasn’t sure if anyone did what I suggested.
Now I ask myself, well heck, I know it doesn’t come easily for us, but aren’t most of you politically savvy enough by now to figure out a role for yourselves, even some small things that might benefit your fellow Americans (your neighbors) in your own local areas.
None of us, me or you, are in any position to change the big stuff, but if everyone does some small things we might see change (LOL! Maybe even in our lifetimes!).
question mark

So what might you do about this news—first spread the story far and wide!  Use all of your social media resources.

And, write to the White House, tell the President that this Executive Order (13166) should be revoked and if Congress wants to require interpreters for everything a non-English-speaking person needs help with—pass a law.
Write to the White House every day.  So at the most you lose 5 minutes every day?
And, how about this?  Find the cost of interpreter services in the city or county/state in which you live.
I remember years ago seeing information that translators were costing Montgomery County, MD a million a year.  I bet it is way above that now!  Even your efforts to get the information will cause a stir!  If you get the information, send a letter to elected officials and send letters to the editor, and just keep bugging them!
A reader sent me an article just yesterday about the Tea Party being dead.  I couldn’t bring myself to read it (too depressing), but it is because of this…..
…..Never forget, the Leftwingers, the Progressives, get what they want by just making the same demands every day, every week, every year while many of us throw up our hands and say, heck this is too hard!

Hypocrisy Alert! Marriott Board Chairman Sits on Open Borders Lobbying Group, but Trump Dare Not Put Illegal Aliens in Marriott's Hotels!

This is rich!
I’ve been reporting here and at Refugee Resettlement Watch ( for years before WordPress took it down) that a major lobbying group for more immigration to America—the New American Economy—is telling you to “welcome” the stranger.
But, darn don’t put them in our hotels!
Here, before you read the latest from the do-as-I-say crowd, are the original leaders of the New American Economy.
New American Economy
 
Although they make it sound like they are taking a principled stand on a political issue you can bet the driving force is that they don’t want to lose business from Lefties who want no one detained (even in a fancy hotel!) and they don’t want their high-end patrons to have to mingle with the riffraff.

Major Hotel Franchises Decline To House Detained Migrants For ICE

Earlier this month the Trump administration announced that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would carry out actions to detain undocumented immigrant families. The declaration drew protests from around the country, and one cohort that pushed back notably was the hotel industry, including some massive hotel franchises.

Bill Marriott
As long as I’ve been blogging (12 years) Bill Marriott (net worth 2.7 billion) has been pushing for more cheap migrant and refugee laborers to service his hotel empire.

Marriott, Hilton, Choice Hotels, Best Western, Wyndham, Hyatt, IHG and MGM Resorts***all released statements saying they don’t want their hotels used to detain migrants, according to a report from the Associated Press.

So now who is breaking up families?

Hotels are sometimes used to house detained migrants before they are transported to detention centers or deported to their place of origin, ICE Director Matthew Albence told the AP. Not having them as a resource could lead to the further breakup of families, he added.
“If hotels or other places do not want to allow us to utilize that, they’re almost forcing us into a situation where we’re going to have to take one of the parents and put them in custody and separate them from the rest of their families.”
[….]
Hotel giant Marriot, in a statement released July 11, said: “While we have no particular insights into whether the U.S. government is considering the use of hotels to aid in the situation at the border, Marriott has made the decision to decline any requests to use our hotels as detention facilities.”

Kenyan Killer Update: So Many Questions and Few are Even Asking Them

Every day I check to see if anyone has written anything new about the horrific serial murder case in Texas involving an illegal alien from Kenya who is charged with smothering twelve (maybe more as the investigation continues) vulnerable older women in order to steal from them.

Bill Chemirmir ugly
Is Chemirmir’s the last face twelve women saw before they were brutally murdered?

 
The only bit of new news since the story broke two weeks ago came from John Binder at Breitbart here.
If you are new to ‘Frauds and Crooks‘ all of my posts on this case (that I plan to follow until the women get justice) are tagged here at ‘Billy Chemirmir.’
So this is an older story I hadn’t mentioned in any detail from the Dallas Morning News (they have done a good job reporting the story) about how hard it is to determine if an older deceased person died of natural causes and frankly rarely does anyone bother to check if they might have been killed with a pillow that leaved no easy-to-see marks.
