So another bunch of progressives want to stop the use of the word “illegal aliens” because it’s offensive. As reported by cultureandmediainstitute.com

The label “remains offensive to Latinos, and especially Mexicans, and to the fundamentals of American jurisprudence,” wrote Leo E. Laurence, a member of the SPJ Diversity Committee and the editor the San Diego News Service (which appears to be this blog that was last updated in August, 2009…Laurence argues that the terms “undocumented immigrant” or “undocumented worker” should replace “illegal immigrant,” because the U.S. legal system presumes that one is innocent until proven guilty.

These idiots like to imagine that U.N. mandates trump America’s Constitution. Dream on progressives. First, if these illegals decided to enter America legally, we wouldn’t even be discussing this. Second, why should illegals (non-citizens) be afforded the rights of our legal citizens. Third, no how many times you try change the meaning of the word, the bottom line is they are illegal. Ok, lets just call them criminals and see how they like that.

I’ll just stick to illegal alien – ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN, ALIEN, ILLEGAL ALIEN,

Now we see why Obama and his DOJ went after Arizona’s new immigration laws. Reported by CNS.com:

Approximately “half of all illegal entries” into the United States and “half of all of the marijuana smuggled into the United States” in fiscal 2010 occurred in the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector, which takes up only a part of the Arizona-Mexico border, according to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) Commissioner Alan Bersin.

And more than two-thirds of the Tucson Sector itself is under “effective control,” according to CBP, which by definition means that the government can “reasonably ensure” that illegal entries are intercepted there.

In typical fashion, another government program is suspected of being rife with fraud. The Black Farmers USDA discrimination suit that, ultimately offered two separate payouts, is suspected of overpaying claims by up to 40,000 people. USDA employees, victims of the USDA discrimination, and an FBI agent have come forward as witnesses to the alleged fraud and King and Bachmann hope to hold hearings in the new Congress to uncover the facts.

A couple of interesting tidbits regarding this. As noted by Rep. King about approaching USDA employees to testify:

“I asked several of them, would you be willing to testify if called upon,” King told CNSNews.com. “Some of them like the jobs that they have now. This puts them at significant risk. So there are a couple that said they would cooperate with a congressional investigation, but they would not speak on the record in any other fashion.”

This type of response for those making a living from taxpayer dollars and not willing to take the chance of losing their ride on the taxpayer supported gravy train.

The most obvious case for an investigation is regarding the number of claimants versus the census figures on black farmers during the period of time in question. While I doubt census figures are spot on, I doubt they are as inaccurate as their numbers depict.

the second round of payouts totals $1.25 billion. The money will go to some 94,000 African Americans who farmed or “attempted” to farm between 1981 and 1996. But according to the Census Bureau, the number of black farmers in America between 1981 and 1996 peaked at 33,000 in 1982

So the first payout found too few victims, so the Obamacrats extended the deadline and the number of claimants ballooned to 94,000 with a tab of $1.25 bil. Do you still wonder why our governments are broke? Unfortunately, even though Reps King and Bachmann want to identify the fraud, they will still be called haters.

Gary R. Grant, president of the Black Farmers and Agriculture Association said

Holding investigative hearings would “make the victim the enemy…and Bachmann and King “should be ashamed” for demanding an investigation.

This is the typical attitude of the Obamacrat goon squad and their minions.
