Illegal Immigration is Crack Cocaine to Vermont: They “Need” It

If it weren’t so tragic that Progressives have taken such firm hold of America, it would be funny:

We don't care they are illegal! They DESERVE to be American citizens!

Sept 15,. 2011 NewsChannel 5 – WPTZ, in Vermont, reported that Gov. Peter Shumlin ordered the investigation into police conduct in the arrest of two illegal aliens from Mexico.  There is deep suspicion that two police officers committed an unspeakable act of violence against them:  during the speeding violation traffic stop, the troopers discovered that two men in the car were illegal aliens from Mexico and arrested them.  One radical and clearly racist trooper had notified the U.S. Border Patrol which then requested that the officers detain  the  Mexicans until federal agents arrived for the transfer to another facility for  processing.

The police officers were met with a human blockade of furious members of the Vermont Migrant Workers Solidarity Project that led to three of them being arrested.  See the news video where Gov. Shumlin says,

“We have always had a policy in Vermont where we kind of look the other way as  much as we can,” the venerable governor said.  “I just want to make sure that’s what’s  we’re doing.”
“In order to harvest our crops, to get our milk to market there’s no doubt about  it,” Shumlin added, “we need foreign (ie, ILLEGAL) workers.”

The police officers are being accused of ‘Racial Profiling” two non-English speaking (but Spanish-speaking), Mexican looking guys with dirty work shirts, boots & work pants (kinda like they’d been working the field) who were acting fearful and furtive in the back seat.  Again, how RACIST of them to assume they might be illegal aliens!  Both illegal aliens have since been released with orders to ‘return’ to court later for their deportation trial.  What do you think?  Will two people who have already broken American immigration law be showing up for their deportation back to Mexico?

White Politicians party at the race track while little brown Mexicans slave in the dairy farms. Gov. Peter Shumlin shows his winning ticket at Saturday's Preakness with Secretary of Civil and Military Affairs Alex MacLean (middle) and Liz Smith of the Democratic Governors Association.

But we are off point here.  Illegal immigration is not the  issue.  Farms and a milking industry that have become completely addicted to illegal immigration is the real issue.  Which came first, the chicken or the egg?  (forgive that).  Did milk prices force dairy farmers to use illegal immigration or did corrupt farmers try to undercut their legal & above-board competition by using illegal immigration and thus drive labor costs down until every dairy farmer had to do so in order to survive?

Although Mexicans are the mainstay of CA & Vermont dairy farms, this was the ONLY photo (on the Internet) I could find with anyone who looked remotely like a Mexican working there. Photo thumbnails showing Mexicans on dairy farms had all been deleted. Coincidence?

And did the nasty work conditions drive lazy Americans away from the jobs or did rich dairy owners take corrupt advantage of unprotected illegals to such a point that standard living conditions of these farms became intolerable to any free person?   I don’t know about you, but this whole situation looks a lot like the business environment that used to justify slavery.   Conservative (real) Republicans abhor this situation- on many levels.  Progressive liberals love it.  Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.  Enough said.

According to an AP Report in May, 2009, Mexican workers are forced into secrecy, danger and 60 hour weeks under hot & brutal circumstances (“so hot that flies swarm or so cold that exposed skin will freeze”) in order to milk those picturesque black & white Holsteins.  What American would do that?  Why should anyone do that?  Remember the days when celebrities screamed about sweat shops in Asia?  Gee, I thought those companies that used sweat shops used high American labor costs, unrelenting competition, and an unfair playing field as their excuse too!  I guess sweat shops are fine in America, as long as milk prices suit the penny pinchers and the sweating people are Mexicans.  Especially if those Mexicans can be bought with free citizenship and thus create a huge Democratic voting block, huh?  Who cares about a little human misery, right?

(On a side note:  While almost all the laborers are Mexicans (you know, little brown people), census data show nearly 97 percent of Vermont residents are white.  I wonder where the ACLU is when you need them….?)

Yet another politician catering to the Mexican dairy workers, "We will give you help when the heat overwhelms you... I promise! says Progressive Schwartzenhager..."

Here are some words from Vermont’s Immigration Anonymous Meetings:

“If it wasn’t for the Hispanics,” Nancy Sabin,
a volunteer who finds dairy farm jobs for Hispanic workers, says,
“there would be no family farms. There would be no farms, period.”

“Everyone knows some of these people are illegal,”
says Vermont Agriculture Secretary Roger Allbee. But,
he says, “The system is broken. There’s the need for labor.”

“The immigrant workers have just been a godsend to these farms,”
says Bob Stoddardt, vice president of member services for the dairy
cooperative Agrimark, which has about 1,300 member farms in the six
New England states and New York. “Their drive and work ethic
are just unbelievable.”

The addiction counselor (Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies with the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies) says,

“Industry has turned out to be almost addicted to that supply of (illegal) workers
and as a result have never had to do anything different, to see
if there’s a way to make the job more appealing.”

2012, here we come!

  1. I don’t blame you people to understand illegal immigrants or their children, until you’ve lived the life that we have you’ll never understand. Ignorance is bliss I guess. I’ll keep you all in my prayers. God bless.

    • aaaawwwww, poor thing. You poor thing. You broke the law and now live hiding illegally and without the convenience of a LEGAL existence and then we are to feel SORRY for you? You are right that I don’t know how you live. I have never snuck into a country, broken its laws and then been made miserable by it. lol! It is the sheer petulance and gimme, gimme attitude of illegal Mexicans that makes me ill. It is you who is illogical. If it is soooo hard for you, why don’t you just hop, skip and jump back to your LEGAL existence in your own doggone country? You are a traitor to your country (why not try to make it a great country like we have done here?) and you are a law breaker to the country you now want. Do you even know what HONOR is???

  2. Texas Governor Rick Perry obviously doesn’t realize that any benefits for illegal aliens, whether it’s the $100.000 tuition fee in the University of Texas or any number public assistance programs is just a tremendous draw to foreign persons, from across borders or a visitor’s visa ticket from anywhere abroad. In a survey by (CIS) Center for Immigration Studies, 40 percent of Texas jobs are jobs taken by illegal aliens in the Lone Star State. Anything that is free is going to entice people, especially when their own country is corrupt or have no interest in gaining support from its people. What is seriously unconstitutional is giving advantages to illegal children over the rights of citizen children, who must pay full tuition as out of state students. In yesterday’s melee, this became a highlighted issue of extraordinary importance to the audience. In a partnership with YouTube and Fox News featured the Republican Presidential Primary candidates in a debate answering questions from the online community.

    Perry was confronted by boos, and hecklers who gave no-quarter to this seemingly special preference to the children of illegal aliens. Senator McCain in 2007 felt the brunt of this condemnation, for the passage of a “Path to Citizenship” and equally abhorrent his pursuance of another mass amnesty. This immediately wrecked his chance of the Presidency, as his campaign money machine ground to a halt through this irrational agenda. Make no mistake that large majorities of the Hispanic people are not going to fall in this political trap, as hundreds of thousands do not believe in pandering to the illegal immigrant onslaught. Like all Americans their jobs are in jeopardy as well, as it is for Latino’s, Blacks, Whites, Asians and others who qualify as lawful residents. The TEA PARTY doesn’t condone any type of official pardon, for those who stole into our country. Voicing her opinion, Bachmann said: “We will not have taxpayer-subsidized benefits for illegal immigrants or their children.” She pledged to build a fence along the U.S.-Mexican border, a shift that Perry opposes. In the latest report surveyed by (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration Reform, Texas is subsidizing illegal aliens with 4.7 billion annually in contributions from its taxpayers.

    These payments cover education, medical care and incarceration that are just one state forced by the federal courts in unfunded mandates. Fair states, “State and local taxes paid by the unauthorized immigrant population go toward offsetting these costs, but they do not come near to matching the expenses. The total of such payments can generously be estimated at slightly less than $1 billion per year.” In addition Fair acknowledged, “The fiscal costs of illegal immigration do not end with these three major cost areas. The total costs of illegal immigration to the state’s taxpayers would be considerably higher if other cost areas such as special English instruction, welfare programs used by the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, or welfare benefits for American workers displaced by illegal alien workers were also calculated.

    All 50 states are burdened by illegal immigrant costs, but in ratio the Sanctuary State of California beats them all, with a rising entitlement program of $9 Billion. Californians should not be expected to presume this already large and growing encumber from illegal immigration simply since businesses or other special interests benefit from being able to employ lower cost workers. In all the Heritage Foundation has analyzed a cost projection of every state, with an inclusion of federal funding–but not limited to $113 Billion dollars a year. All this money taken from the American taxpayers pay check. Even more astounding is the US government allowing illegal workers, to send an average of $46 billion dollars out of the country, to foreign banks?

    Rick Perry may have cooked his own goose, for as a Governor of a state he should be protecting his citizens and legal populace. Giving out taxpayer dollars to foreigner’s children is not just a Texas issue. There is no doubt in the TEA PARTY ticket, illegal immigration is going to take center stage, next to jobs and our wilting economy. Rep. Lamar smith is correct, when he impressed on the issue of his mandatory E-Verify proposal in Congress, this an imminent in vote right now, “That the only people losing their jobs–will be illegal aliens.” Of course the usual radical voices are raised, as critics opposing this Historical Immigration Bill, H.R. 2885 are searching for any loophole to drag it down. They are using what inflammatory rhetoric or lies they can muster against the passage of E-Verify “the Legal Workforce Act.” First they contest it that legal American workers could be turned away in being hired. So that person just addresses that grievance by going to their local Social security office; illegal aliens will stay well clear of this agency. None of the media will inform their readership of this?

    Following through with this is an expensive proposition for small businesses, when it’s a simple computer generated program and cost nothing to operate. The usual suspects are behind this bombardment of hoping to terrorize the people with this verbal garbage. Adverse entities such as Tea Party Nation or Tea Party Express have limited influence on the millions of in the Tea Party members, who want to see our 1986 Immigration laws severely enforced. They also want the instant citizenship law amended, so billions of dollars are not going to parents of these babies snuck into the United States, so they can get free hospital care, free housing, free food stamps and cash payments for every child. The misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, has given 300.000 children at an annual rate for illegal parents, free access to the American people’s welfare safety-net.

    The people who vote in 2012 have probably the hardest selection in choosing a new president. Obama’s immigration enforcement was on the right track, until he began issuing executive orders and not complying with the “Rule of Law.” After all Liberal oriented presidents think they are not subject to the US Constitution. The job of his administration is to deport–ALL–illegal aliens, not select who can stay, because they hadn’t committed a crime. The next man/women in the White House must follow the law, which has been manipulated successfully by the public servants in the Dept of Justice. They should not be intimidated by the Church, unions, business, giant agricultural corporation, farmers or the open border groups. Instead of trying to undermine financially hurting states from converging crowds of illegal immigrants, they should be enforcing the laws in the border regions, where states like Arizona, California, Texas and New Mexico are in constant conflict with drug cartels and the tracks of foreigners moving Northwards in to America.

    Who amongst presidential contenders will really fit the bill, to beat Obama later next year? Businessman Herman Cain, a true partier who has a great plans and addressing the crippling Tax code, we have now and so does Bachmann? Being that illegal immigration has become an oppressive financial problem, finding the best candidate with an antidote is not for former for Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul as they have little to say about this controversial battle that is unceasing.

    We can all stand with our fellow jobless countryman by Calling House and Senate Leadership NOW Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. In winding up, Arizona, Georgia, Alabama and other states have been persecuted by Dept of Justice Eric holder and his mob. All these states need our help from years of a neglected border and the flow of–ECONOMIC–foreign nationals. Don’t take my word for the facts, as you can find the ugly truth of the illegal settlement at NumbersUSA that has been forced upon us for over thirty years. There have been 6 additional hidden small Amnesties and the clandestine importation of millions of semi-skilled workers that have arrive here every year, in competition from US workers high paying jobs. Other websites that will deliver the facts about the criminal element, with wide ranging access to the E-media is American Patrol.

    • Gooooooooooo Cain! I am ON the Herman Cain Train!! I just love that man! He is a clean as a whistle- he doesn’t owe anybody anything. He comes in as a clean slate, people. He always had such conrete answers & solutions and nobody can ever rattle him. And how ’bout that smile! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a president who could smile like that? Talk about a unifier! Who could dislike him?

  3. Little Rebel,

    God has given you the truth. Illegal Mexicans are simply being exploited for profit and potential votes. The ugliness of it sickens me.

  4. PASS MANDATORY E-VERIFY.

    The American worker, families and communities face a common problem today. It’s estimated between 13 and 20 million plus currently has settled and work in our nation unlawfully. The majorities are–ECONOMIC–and don’t pay local, state, Federal taxes and yet demand privileges meant for US citizens and legal residents, placing a massive yoke around government welfare and bleed this recessions sources of revenue. American’s can no longer pay to subsidize the illegal immigrants, with the taxpayer’s $113 Billion dollars and-up annually. Let alone 2.5 Trillion dollars to process the government estimated 11.5 million aliens that live here. (Heritage foundation & Pew Hispanic Research Center)

    These illegal offenders, who come here, leave no paper trail of foreign criminal convictions. Most have families, many legal that hide their relations in plain sight. They bring their children or birth them here attending public schools by law, adding to overcrowded classrooms and diverting scarce education money. Time is not on America’s side, as the borders remain porous and hundreds of miles of ancient barbed wire fences, open lake areas, rivers–which the US Agents thinly roam trying to courageously stop drug cartels, criminal cargo and the endless tracks of foreign nationals.

    I don’t think any American is opposed to legal immigration, As all of us, one time or the other came across the Atlantic or crossed borders. But illegal immigrant invaders are something entirely wrong, that treads on our “rule of law” and the prime directives of the U.S. Constitution. America is a nation of laws, which we abide by. Illegal aliens want all the rights of the legal population, but scorn our laws and then have the audacity to demonstrate in our streets. This is just not right, with most ignoring our people’s common bond to respect our laws. They do neither! Unlike the 19th century immigrants they come here expecting to be monetary taken care of, wish not to learn our language or to assimilate into American society.

    However, the open border tyranny has a different agenda. The Obama government has used executive directives, making it possible for illegal aliens to settle in this nation. Last month President Obama issued an executive order to bypass the Congress, establishing new ICE priorities relating to deportations. This event has led an easier path for illegal nationals to remain in this country, being able to apply for a work permit. Even though the American public and refusal of Congress to approve of any new amnesty, the administration has created a back door entry for these people.

    Many honest lawmakers signed a letter to President Obama and executive members of the staff, protesting this action. In other words this Administration has stonewalled the Congress, which is the only avenue that an amnesty may be passed into law.

    A mandatory E-Verify vote is coming up for a vote this week and every American is frustrated and irate about Obama’s executive order should contact his representative in Washington insisting they pass Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas “The Legal Workforce Act” (H.R. 2885). This is about saving jobs for working Americans, being stolen by illegal alien labor.

    In her opening statement on yesterday, Rep. Linda Sanchez described E-Verify as broken.

    “The system is riddled with errors and doesn’t work. It doesn’t flag the workers it’s supposed to flag, and it snags too many citizens and legal workers in its net. The job market is tough enough. It makes no sense for Congress to pass a law that makes it more difficult for legal workers to find work.”

    Why are the pro-amnesty groups so scared of Chairman Smith’s bill? Because they know it would take away any leverage they have for passing a mass amnesty, and more importantly, it would successfully remove illegal aliens from the workforce.

    Further there is the HALT Act (Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation) bill. This bill would prevent USCIS (United States Customs and Immigration Services) and ICE from granting parole for illegal aliens who are convicted of a crime and other actions, including reversing the administration’s recent executive directive authorizing the cancellation of the removal of illegal aliens from our country. The simple explanation of the “HALT” act is to stop the present government from circumventing the Congress on deportation and other immigration laws, so ICE can carry out their duties.

    If the people of America wish to change the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act, so be it–with their votes. But the laws were regulated to place detainers on illegal aliens and then deport them, for violating the United States laws. Only President Obama has ignored Congress and changed our laws by fiat. Showing complete indifference to our laws and living inside state borders, has gone too far. Even worse are the oaths our president, his men and women sworn to protect us from enemies domestic and foreign have chosen to ignore the American people’s voices.

    Before Obama and back three decades, the US government has overreached their empowerment, as we have witnessed in courts as activist judges have followed their own agendas. Immigration is no longer a lesser of issues, as it has influenced both the jobs of thousands of US workers and this economy. The “HALT” act, E-Verify, 287 G and “Secure Communities” are the sane way, for the illegal aliens to begin an exodus from this country. Another sure system is for the government to issue every American with an official ID. These policing laws would eventually make it near impossible, for illegal aliens to stay here, without fear of detection.

    As Americans you should expect nothing more or less, from any politician. If the Liberals, Democrats or even the Republicans will not enforce Immigration laws, it’s for sure TEA PARTY leaders will.

    If you suspect that competition is using an illegal workforce, contact the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division at 1-866-DHS-2ICE (866-347-2423).According to one of our members who spoke with an ICE agent, “the mere ‘suspicion’ that a company’s employees are illegal aliens is all that is necessary to make the call to commence an investigation.” He added, “Law enforcement organizations cannot, and do not, expect the public to be experts in determining whether someone is committing a crime, so they provide a safe harbor approach to informing.” Whistle Blowers are very welcome who see irregularities at their workplace. Much evidence is available at NumbersUSA, less available news stories at American Patrol and the corruption spawned in our government at Judicial Watch. Otherwise call your local Representative, insisting they vote for Rep. Lamar Smith’s Judiciary Committee, who can be reached through the Washington Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to make E-Verify a mandatory law for work, to save US jobs from illegal alien competition.

    TELL YOUR SENATOR, THEY MIGHT HAVE THE POWER—BUT YOU HAVE THE VOTE? YOU MIGHT ALSO ASK THEM, WHY ILLEGAL ENTRY IS NOT A FELONY?

    You are far from being a lone voice on the issue of illegal immigration. The TEA PARTY is the massive impetus that will resolve this problem that is feeding off the US taxpayer. The TEA PARTY is just average Americans, out to protect their interests, unlike the current government who are out to pacify illegal foreigners. The governments seem to condone illegal activities, as did the previous administration as a reward for business owners. The TEA PARTY will enforce the 1986 Immigration law, with no Path to Citizenship, No Amnesty, No Dream Act and no Sanctuary city or State policies. The front door or you will be deported or imprisoned.

    ATTN: CALL YOU SENATOR AND HOUSE CONGRESSMAN, TO DUMP THE PRESENT UNFAIR TAX CODE AND PLUG ALL THE LOOPHOLES FOR THE RICH, BIG OIL AND INSIST EVERYBODY PAYS. NO EXCEPTIONS!
