One thing is for sure—new American entrepreneurs are clever, so clever that I am sure many are escaping unnoticed in every immigrant community in America.
This is a story from Rochester, NY where an Asian owner of a nail salon was able to set up a scam that allowed his customers to use their food stamps (our money!) to get their nails done.
Is this what the cabal behind the New American Economyis talking about when they proudly proclaim that immigrant-run businesses are propping up dying cities?
I have maintained for years that money might be flowing into dying cities when immigrants (aka NEW Americans) arrive largely because the money comes via Washington and federal programs set up to benefit the poor, but it isn’t new money! It is money from federal tax payers recycled to places like Utica, Buffalo or, as in this case, Rochester, NY. Continue reading “New Twist on Food Stamp Fraud: Redeem your Benefits at a Nail Salon”→
The concept of remittances—-billions of US dollars sent out of the country and out of our economy—is information you must beat into the heads of your friends, neighbors, family members and assorted strangers as well!
Every time I see one of those phony-baloney economic studies that say immigrants add to our economy, I look for any mention of the billions in remittances being removed from our economy by them (some is surely money they earned, but you know darn well some of it is gained by gaming our social services system!).
Guess what? The number is never there!
You need to get this segment of Tucker Carlson spread as far and wide as you can! At Fox News here.
Tucker Carlson: Immigration is not always good for our economy. Those who say it is are lying to you
Send it around!
Go on the offense and demand remittances be taxed!
For those of you who follow immigration issues, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments this past week are no surprise. The only surprise might be that she is so ‘honest’ about why the Dems are for Open Borders.
While most of us led our lives, went to work, raised our children, the Democrat/Socialist activists got up every day and worked tirelessly to quietly change America by changing the people.
Their work is now bearing fruit while we play catch-up.
John Binder writing at Breitbarttells us what we already know—New Americans vote for Democrats—but his story from Thursday is a must read. Continue reading “Pelosi: We Want all Newcomers Voting!”→
Editor:Frauds and Crooks is one month old today!
On January first, when Iwelcomed youto my new blog, I said my first priority was to counter the media reports that have begun to spew from the Open Borders propaganda machine about how migrants of all stripes are just the ticket for saving America’s economy while bringing the joys of diversity to you, the deplorables.
And so it is funny thatthis news from Utica, NY published yesterday is exactly what I warned about one month ago.
You will be seeing news like this from sea to shining sea in the lead-up to the 2020 Presidential contest.
The Cities Refugees Saved
Of course, I question the premise of the story from CityLab in the first place. Why must we save a city that is no longer providing jobs or has been poorly run by Democrats for decades?
First just so you know here are the ‘brains’ behind the New American Economypropaganda machine. Tell me if this bunch has anything more on their minds than cheap immigrant labor and more Democrat voters!
This is my post from earlier this month on the New American Economy. CityLabreports that the New American Economy gang has teamed up (has hired) a film company to put together a film that will showcase Utica’s booming refugee-driven economy. (They love films!)
Film maker Adam Bedient (director of photography and editor at Off Ramp Films) says he grew up nearby and it was just a dying city but now, joy of joys the Bosnian Muslims that Bill Clinton welcomed to America have turned the city around.
Now, he’s working on a full-length feature about the refugee communities in Utica, and when he drives through town, he finds it simmering with new life. Old buildings are getting refurbished. Construction cranes bob up and down. And at the center of town is a long-vacant historic Methodist church that has been renovated and converted into a beautiful mosque—a symbol of the new Utica.
The CitiLabstory goes on to report how the city is thriving. You can read it yourself.
When you see news like this, look to see if they have included any mention of problems, like the one I reported at Refugee Resettlement Watch in 2015 about the school funding crisis when the city of Utica sued the state of New York for a refugee-created school funding shortfall.
See if they mention anything about dollars from Washington (from you) that fuel the local ‘new American’ economy via welfare—food stamps, housing subsidies, healthcare, federal grants for myriad refugee/immigrant services, grants to non-profits that service migrants and so forth.
In other words , is Utica a prime example of simply shifting federal tax dollars to a dying city?
CityLab goes on (as expected) to bash the President and White House policy staffer Stephen Miller saying they don’t know what they are talking about when they express concerns about the cost of more refugee resettlement or any issues of safety and security. You can read it all here.
The story wraps with a quote from Bedient about that on-going debate,
This kind of wrangling over the true impact of refugees doesn’t get much traction in Utica, where refugees now make up almost a quarter of the city’s population, Bedient says. It’s not really up for debate at this point—“it’s a part of the city’s identity now,” he says.
Bottomline, the New American Economy and the Open Borders cabal have decided, there is no longer any debate, so shut up!
Here is what I don’t get!
Utica, has been paraded out for over a decade as a city saved by refugees, but no group on the immigration control side of the debate has ever (to my knowledge) gone to Utica to investigate the claims and counter them. Why is that?
This is an update of the story I posted two weeks ago, here.
Dr. Rajendra Bothra had not been granted bail at the time because of a fear that he would flee to his native India. But, reporter Robert Snell at theDetroit News, who has been following the case closely, says Bothra was granted bail on Tuesday—believed to be a new record high.
You know we keep talking about migrants bringing drugs across our southern border when in fact “new American” doctors are allegedly dispensing them like Pez candy!
(And, likely ripping off US taxpayers to boot!)
Judge frees doctor on record-setting bond in opioid case
Detroit — The accused architect of a nearly $500 million health care fraud could leave jail within days after being freed on a record-setting $7 million bond Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge Stephen Murphy granted the bond for Dr. Rajendra Bothra, 77, of Bloomfield Hills, despite the government’s concern the doctor has hidden money that could bankroll an escape to his native India.
The amount shattered the previous record-high bond of $4.5 million granted two years ago to Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who is charged in the nation’s first case involving female genital mutilation.
Bothra, the lead defendant in one of the largest health care fraud cases in U.S. history, must liquidate an $8.5 million retirement account to cover the bond, a process that could take three days. Bothra will be released on home confinement and tracked by a GPS tether and must identify all assets under penalty of perjury.
His wife and daughter, who attended the hearing Tuesday, will surrender their passports to alleviate concerns that the family might flee while Bothra awaits trial in July.
[….] Prosecutors have been unable to pinpoint Bothra’s net worth, which could be as high as $35 million.Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandy McMillion noted that Bothra owns a real-estate company that owns 22 properties across Metro Detroit, including $2.8 million worth of condominiums and commercial buildings in downtown Royal Oak.
Continue here. There is much more including photos of the real estate holdings Bothra may have purchased with funds from his alleged fraud scheme.
