Illegal Immigration Crime Invades Virginia, Tennessee

by Lewis Loflin

Immigration reform will cause even more misery for the working poor as an additional 22 million more guest workers over the next decade will further displace native born low-wage workers and already have in East Tennessee and Tri-Cities. Low-wage black workers have been driven out of the labor force across the nation by immigration and the same thing is happening to poor whites in our region as employers hunt for more cheap-exploitable labor.

In fact this has been recommended to business as a way to lower labor costs in the tourist-retirement related industries this region is promoting. Simply put they want to bring in even cheaper labor to displace the working poor that already dominates our private sector labor market. The working poor are ignored and marginalized already and so the system of social apartheid will continue to flourish.

Update Nov. 2017: a report has been released showing that an additional 2800 illegal alien children dumped into our schools will cost $56 million or $20,000 each to Virginia taxpayers. Kathryn Watson at www.watchdog.org reports Gov. McAuliffe was asked about this, he shrugged it off as a Federal Problem. Federal Government placement of 37,000 illegal alien children (recent arrivals) has burdened state governments by $761 million for schools in 2014-15.

Virginia schools are flooded with 95,000 illegal alien children costing taxpayers $1.2 billion - that's more than all of the economic development funds spent in Southwest Virginia over the last 30 years! The cost is so high because these students are low -achievers and illiterate even in Spanish - add in billions more in welfare costs. Less than 300 have been deported. Where is the fake news Bristol Herald Courier on this?

Total costs of just illegal aliens in Virginia is $2.469 billion. (www.fairus.org) This doesn't include wage depression and cost of other people's poverty. In addition the net cost to Federal taxpayers is $116 billion.

On the other hand many refuse to work any job that illegals take because of both laziness, easy access to welfare, and low wages. It's a mixed bag.

The Heritage Foundation (2013) notes that of low-income households regardless of immigration status:

These households generate a "fiscal deficit" that must be financed by taxes from other households or by government borrowing. For example, in 2010, in the U.S. population as a whole, households headed by persons without a high school degree, on average, received $46,582 in government benefits while paying only $11,469 in taxes. This generated an average fiscal deficit (benefits received minus taxes paid) of $35,113.

The high deficits of poorly educated households are important in the amnesty debate because the typical unlawful immigrant has only a 10th-grade education. Half of unlawful immigrant households are headed by an individual with less than a high school degree, and another 25 percent of household heads have only a high school degree.

Southwest Virginia is over reliant (50% of the population) on these type transfer payments. In particular efforts at economic development is local corruption and culture end up creating wealth for a few well connected. They still refuse to confront the education problem.

Thus mass immigration legal and illegal hits those without advanced degrees, etc. far worse than the wealthy that benefit directly.

Illegal alien criminals turned loose on I-81 in East Tennessee

ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) -- "Two Latino men being deported from Erwin were, instead, turned loose along Interstate 81. Unicoi County Sheriff Kent Harris told the Johnson City Press that Gregorio Estala Rodriguez and Primitivo Estala Rodriguez had been picked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents on Tuesday and were being taken to a federal center in New Orleans.

Harris said the agents called the jail later and said superiors had told them to release the men because the center in New Orleans was temporarily closed after Hurricane Gustav blew though the city. Harris said Gregorio Rodriguez had pleaded guilty to drug and weapons charges and Primitivo Rodriguez pleaded guilty to not having a driver's license or car insurance. The newspaper reported it's efforts to obtain comment from ICE were unsuccessful." Ref. AP Sep. 5, 2008.

New immigration laws in Tennessee could be changing the way some jails do business. Under the new law, jailers must confirm whether or not someone is an illegal immigrant when they are booked into the detention center.

Then, jailers must notify federal immigration agencies if the person charged is in the country illegally. Local law enforcement, including Unicoi and Washington counties, say they're prepared to cooperate with federal immigration employees.

In fact, according to Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal, this is nothing new to his department. He says they've been enforcing this law for the past several years, working with immigration officials.

In Unicoi County, jailer George Berry doesn't see anything wrong with the new law, he says, because it doesn't target any specific group of people. Instead if you're brought into jail, they must confirm your residency and they have been doing that for more than 6 years. "Don't break the law," he said, "and you don't have anything to worry about."

This is the first piece of new immigration law passed in the State of Tennessee, and Representative Tony Shipley says even though this is a small piece of the puzzle, it does get the ball rolling for future immigration laws in the state. January 03, 2011

Tennessee Passes New Immigration Law, Follows Arizona's Footsteps

Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen (D) signed a bill yesterday that creates provisions similar to, but less harsh than, those of SB 1070, including requiring city and county jails in the state to report any person who may be in violation of immigration laws to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

A decision that follows recent state and local crackdowns on undocumented immigration - particularly Arizona's SB 1070 and a Nebraska town's vote to limit job and housing opportunities to undocumented immigrants - Bredesen's vote for Tennessee's House bill 670 isn't surprising.

Tennessee also has a history of laws cracking down on undocumented immigrants. In 2007, lawmakers proposed over 40 changes to state law that targeted undocumented immigrants. That same year, Bredesen signed a bill that allows the state to deny, suspend or revoke the employers' business licenses if they knowingly employ undocumented immigrants. Earlier this month, Bredesen allowed a resolution that applauded Arizona on their new immigration to pass without his signature. BHC June 29th, 2010

A new law taking effect New Year's Day targets illegal immigration. It requires jailers to report individuals who don't have legal documentation to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Homeland Security Department.

Illegal Alien Nailed for ID Theft in Johnson City

On July 5, 2011, officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Cuautemoc Castro Martinez, 32 yoa, 1001 East Watauga Avenue, Johnson City, Tennessee. Mr. Martinez was charged with Identity Theft. The arrest was the result of an investigation where Mr. Jesus Gomez, Nampa, Idaho filed a report with the Johnson City Police Department that his name and personal identifiers were being used in Johnson City, Tennessee.

The investigation found Mr. Cuautemoc Martinez had used the information to obtain employment and created false income tax returns for Mr. Gomez. Mr. Martinez is currently being held in the Washington County Detention Center in lieu of a $10,000.00 bond. He is scheduled to appear in the Washington County General Sessions Court on July 6, 2011 for an arraignment. Ref. Johnson City Police

Corrupt firms aid smugglers of immigrants

(AP) PHOENIX - Smugglers who bring illegal immigrants into the U.S. are getting crucial help from seemingly legitimate businesses that supply them with cars, lodging, plane tickets and other services, knowing full well what's going on. Investigators say the number of these corrupt businesses is small, but they play a significant role in helping illegal immigrants reach the country's interior.

The accomplices have included landlords and rental agents who provide homes for smugglers to hide immigrants; taxi drivers near the border who bring immigrants to the closest cities; used-car dealerships that let smugglers register vehicles under false names; and travel agencies that sell blocks of plane tickets for immigrants. "At every stage along the way, a process has been taken over, corrupted, in order to facilitate the transportation" of illegal immigrants, said Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, whose office has prosecuted such cases.

Authorities are unable to estimate the number of businesses helping smugglers but say the biggest concentration is in Arizona, the busiest illegal gateway into the country. Immigrant smuggling in Arizona is believed to be a $1.7 billion-a-year business. Businesses also are cooperating with smugglers in San Diego, Los Angeles, Houston, San Antonio and El Paso, Texas. Immigration agents said some of these accomplices are criminal operations through and through. But others are bona fide businesses willing to break the law now and then for the extra bucks.

Authorities have prosecuted only a modest number of businesses, saying smuggling operations are often family-run and difficult to infiltrate with informants or undercover officers. Also, recorded conversations are needed to prove that businesses knew they were breaking the law. The businesses "are willfully blind to what on the face should be obvious," said Alonzo Pena, chief of investigations for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Arizona.

The first several articles presented addresses the issue of left-wing bias in news reporting, etc.

Why do racism charges not apply to Iman Keith Ellison whom Weekly Standard (10/9) calls "Louis Farrakhan's First Congressman?" He came to Islam and still supports the Nation of Islam, a racist, anti-Semitic cult. They refer to black people as "original humans" and white people as sub-human. They advocate the mass murder of Jews (excuse me, Zionists.) Why is anti-white racism condoned?
