The Hidden Anti-Latino Agenda by Republicans and Xenophobic extremists..Where are the Latino representation on this Country? How far the Extremist, Xenophobics, Racist will go? Don't worry they had been already invaded your privacy, home, work, and your Latin America Country. It's coming to Town. Racism against Latinos growing a high speed.
At a time when immigration reform proposals have been moved so far to the right that even conservative Republicans could support them, out comes the White House with its own remarkably hawkish set of ideas.
For a president who supposedly wants comprehensive reform passed this year, George W. Bush is going out of his way.
The Democratic-controlled Congress was already considering a House bi-partisan proposal that is far more conservative than the comprehensive immigration reform package passed in the Senate last year. It was being hailed by editorial writers as a reasonable compromise to finally fix the nation's broken immigration system.
But instead of supporting it, the White House is now trying to swing the pendulum even further to the right. Last week, the administration floated its own even more conservative proposal, one that has no chance of getting approval from the Democratic majority in Congress.
Clearly, it's all about politics. Republicans are naturally worried that — after bashing immigrants for so long — once Unlawful immigrants become citizens, they are going to vote for Democrats. So the White House has been floating an immigration plan that would make it harder for them to gain citizenship.
In meetings with congressional GOP leaders, administration officials have reportedly floated ideas to further appease the xenophobic hawks. These ideas are clearly for the consumption of those who have a deeper, more sinister agenda, which is to slow the empowerment of Latinos.
After all, we know that's really what the conservatives are worried about. Since most Unlawful immigrants are Latinos, it's about the fear and suppressing Latino empowerment. It's not about giving legal status to some 12 million people who are already living and working here, people who are essential to the success of our economy.
It's about denying them, their children and the relatives they will bring from other countries, the right to vote.
Bush now seems to be telling his hawkish friends, "hey, no problem, we can delay that — indefinitely."
Of course, what they are doing is making the offer that will eventually be made to Unlawful immigrants so unattractive that many of them simply won't take it. And we'll still have a huge Unlawful immigration problem.
Even the House legislation, hailed as the middle ground proposal that all had been seeking, runs the risk of being rejected by many Unlawful immigrants.
That's because the bill, sponsored by Rep.
Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, D-Ill., requires Unlawful immigrants to return to their home countries, perhaps for only a few months or years, and then return here legally.
For many Unlawful immigrants who are poor and have families, the cost of returning home and coming back is unaffordable. Of course, almost all these proposals call for a fine of at least $2,000 for every Unlawful immigrant who submits to a legalization plan. A family of five Unlawful immigrants would be paying at least $10,000 to get a green card and work here legally. Based on cost alone, many of them may choose to remain underground. Did you call this Amnesty? Nooooooooo.
The Flake-Gutierrez bill would tighten the borders and toughen enforcement of immigration laws. It would establish many of the hurdles conservatives have been asking for, especially requiring new plans to toughen workplace enforcement and border security to be satisfied before its citizen provision kicks in. It would require a major buildup of border patrol officers and technology at the Mexican border, a system for employers to electronically verify whether job applicants are eligible to work here, and tougher penalties for many immigration-related violations.
The measure keeps many of the hurdles that were already in last year's bill. Applicants for legalization would still be required to pay a $500 fee, a $1,500 fine and any back taxes they owe. They would still be required to clear a security and background check, to learn English and civic, submit proof of past employment and maintain a felony-free record. Only after satisfying those requirements for six years would they be allowed to apply for permanent residency status, which could lead to citizenship five years later. It means they would have to wait at least 11 years for the right to vote as Americans.
But as expected, nothing was gained from taking this comprehensive reform proposal further to the right — because the hawks are still calling it "amnesty." And they will continue resisting any kind of legislation that will eventually create more Latino and more Democratic voters.
That's why the Bush administration is still trying to please its conservative extremist base by floating a proposal that would make Unlawful immigrants wait many more years before they could become U.S. citizens.
Nevertheless, even that proposal is threatening to those who fear Latino political empowerment. Even if that empowerment is delayed, expecting conservative extremists to come to a middle ground on immigration reform is absurd.
They have a deeper, more sinister, Raids across the Country, Put kids in jail like criminals as well as their relatives even do they are U.S. Citizens, Their Worth's solution is coming if we not acting know. They just want them out of this Country banning their legal and Human rights to deport them to their Countries

Lou Dobbs wife Illegal Lawbreaker and the term of Illegal.
posted by Kaimipono D. Wenger edited by me.
As noted earlier, Lou Dobbs is upset that more media outlets aren't using the term "illegal alien," instead often opting for the term "undocumented immigrant." Dobbs suggests a conspiracy by the media. But the fact is that critics of the media don't consistently use "illegal alien," either. The term often gets shortened to merely "illegals." (See, e.g., Wash Times, "Bush amnesty blamed for rise in illegals"; Wash Times, "Senate illegals bill near complete"; WorldNetDaily, "Arizona county helping illegals, critic charges"; KTAR, "Employer sanctions for hiring illegals stuck in Senate"; and the lovely article "Illegals go home" that has run in various outlets.)
Supporters of this term defend its use, pointing out that it carries some degree of descriptive accuracy. People labeled as "illegals" have indeed violated a law; therefore, suggest users, such people may accurately be called illegals. Is this reasonable?
This argument is not unreasonable on the surface. It is strongest if we accord similar treatment to other groups. That is, the reasonableness of this approach depends on whether we typically make one's violation of law a primary or sole descriptor.
For example, if the principle is to be applied consistently, Kenneth Lay should be described as "an illegal" because of his conviction for a crime. So his wife Debi Dobbs is illegal for her conviction on a criminal possession of a weapon.
Scooter Libby should similarly be called "an illegal." In fact, one might expect proponents of the usage of illegals (in the context of immigration) to support this broader usage as well. After all, they seem quite concerned that a person's status vis-a-vis law be used as that person's primary or only descriptor.
The potential application of the "illegals" label is even broader, really. Immigration critics don't confine their use to people actually convicted of crimes. Anyone who violates immigration laws -- whether convicted or not -- is subject to the term. For consistency's sake, the same should apply to people who violate any other laws.
So both Kenneth Lay (convicted), Lou's Wife Debie and other unconvicted violators of corporate law should be called illegals. Let's apply the term, consistently, to anyone who has ever violated a law. Anyone who has violated a law at any point -- speeders, jaywalkers, late tax filers -- should henceforth be called "an illegal." Under this definition, I'm an illegal, and you probably are, too. (The term probably covers most Americans.)
Meanwhile, those who haven't ever broken any law should be rewarded by being called "legals" in general parlance. Let's raise compliance with law above race, religion, gender, or age, as one's primary identifying attribute. I'm sure that Dobbs and other proponents of the "illegals" usage will be happy to extend it to its logical limit -- why wouldn't they?
And if you haven't had your daily dose of douchebaggery. Bonus points for noticing where he confuses noncitizens with illegal immigrants, a slip that's telling, where he implies the concept of dual citizenship is disloyal, and where he pulls out the old "immigrants don't want to learn English" canard, because Lou Dobbs has never gotten near an adult ESL class in his life and gets his conception of immigrants from right-winger blogs and space aliens that visit him in his sleep.
I have only one other question, though -- what exactly should we call the inconsistent folk who support the apparently racist approach of labeling immigration violators as "illegals," but see no need to use that label on any violators of other laws?
I suggest we call such people, "bastards, Xenophobics, racist."

Immigrant Dreams and Nightmares in the White Supremacist Cauldron.
by Xicano Power.
What happen back then in 1849-1910 and What have been happen on these past years.
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”— Emma Lazarus,
"The New Colossus" (carved on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty)
Chinese Americans never forget the fact that the Statue of Liberty faces out across the Atlantic Ocean, towards Europe. The tired, the poor, the huddled masses of dream-hungry immigrants coming across the Pacific — like those coming across the deserts and rivers along the Southern US border — have never been greeted by a Mother of Exiles. More often than not, they have been greeted by racist policies and laws, xenophobic hatred, and white supremacist violence.
Instead of a lamp-lifting Lady Liberty beside the golden door, many Chinese folks arriving on the West coast of the United States encountered the dank prison walls of Angel Island.
The US government established the Angel Island Immigration Station in 1910 as a West coast counterpart to Ellis Island; but there were significant differences between the two. Located in San Francisco Bay next to Alcatraz, Angel Island had previously served as a detention center for prisoners of the Spanish-American and Indian wars. US officials believed it to be well-suited to Asian immigrants because it provided a natural quarantine for the communicable diseases which were "prevalent among aliens from oriental countries" (though Native Americans might have a different view of just who was bringing communicable diseases to these shores). Whereas European immigrants arriving at Ellis Island were usually processed and released within hours, some 80 percent of the Chinese immigrants at Angel Island were detained for months or even years, pending detailed investigations into their identities. Aside from the agonizing isolation and dirty crowded conditions, the most notorious component of these investigations were the grueling and repeated interrogations, during which inspectors would harp over laboriously detailed questions looking for the slightest inconsistency as an excuse for deportation.In response to this ordeal, many detainees skillfully carved calligraphic poetry into the walls of the detention barracks. According to the San Francisco Chronicle:
"I wish I could travel on a cloud far away, reunite with my wife and son," says a poem composed of Chinese characters and carved into the barracks' wall. "When the moonlight shines on me alone, the night seems even longer."
Now, the state Parks Department and a nonprofit foundation have begun a $50 million project to restore this national historic landmark, including its decaying barracks and hospital. But as much as anything, it will be the poems that provide a window into the station's past.
"Here, we actually have talking walls," said Erika Gee, director of education for the San Francisco-based Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, which is raising private funds for the project.
Some of the poems were written with pencil or brush nearly 100 years ago. Others were carved using a classical Chinese technique, deep into the wooden walls -- most likely by a professional carver. Many of the poems were written in the Tang dynasty style of regulated verse and couplets.
"We think there was a conscious effort of selecting what went up on the wall," Gee said. "We think there was actually a poetry club, and people chose the best examples to put on the wall."
More than 135 of these classically-styled poems by anonymous artists survive today as a testament to what it must have been like (and have been compiled in a book); and indeed a testament to what it must still be like today for detained immigrants.
Instead of remaining a citizen of China, I willingly became an ox.I intended to come to America to earn a living.
The Western styled buildings are lofty; but I have not the luck to live in them.
How was anyone to know that my dwelling place would be a prison?
~ ~ ~
Everyone says traveling to North America is a pleasure.
I suffered misery on the ship and sadness in the wooden building.
After several interrogations, still I am not done.
I sigh because my compatriots are being forcibly detained.~ ~ ~
A flickering lamp keeps this body company.
I am like pear blossoms which have already fallen.
Pity the bare branches during the late spring.
Now of course, Chinese immigrants had been struggling against systemic xenophobia and racism long before Angel Island.
The Chinese began arriving in California in large numbers in 1849 as part of the gold rush. It didn't take long for this to start pissing off white folks who felt that they alone were entitled to America's riches. In 1852, the California legislature's Committee on Mines and Mining declared of the Chinese that "their presence here is a great moral and social evil — a disgusting scab upon the fair face of society — a putrefying sore upon the body politic." As a result, the "commutation tax" and the "foreign miner's tax" were enacted, aimed respectively at obstructing Chinese immigration and hurting Chinese mining enterprises. The money from these taxes went to funding public hospitals which did not admit Chinese patients.In 1853, the San Francisco Daily Alta California editorialized that the Chinese were "morally a far worse race to have among us than the Afro. They are idolatrous in their religion — in their disposition cunning and deceited, and in their habits libidinous and offensive ... They are not of that kin that Americans can ever associate or sympathize with. They are not of our people and never will be, and it is undesirable that they should, for nothing but degradation can result to us from the contact ... It is of no advantage to us to have them here. They can never become like us."In 1854, the landmark case People v. Hall established that no Chinese person could testify in court against a white person. The case began when a grand jury in Nevada County indicted George W. Hall for the murder of a Chinese man named Ling Sing. Three Chinese witnesses testified on behalf of the prosecution; Hall was found guilty and sentenced to death. Hall's lawyers appealed the verdict on the grounds that, under the Criminal Proceeding Act, "no black or mulatto person, or Indian, shall be permitted to give evidence in favor of, or against, any white person." The case went to the state supreme court, where the verdict was overturned. Chief Justice Charles Murray explained that the Chinese were, in fact, Indians, because Christopher Columbus, upon reaching the New World, had mistakenly thought that he had reached the China Sea. Bizarrely, Murray further asserted that even if the Chinese were not American Indians, all non-white races could be considered black. People v. Hall offers us a fine example of white supremacist thinking; which is to say, it makes no sense whatsoever, but it gives us a glimpse into the twisted mental processes within the white establishment, which lumps all people of color together as voiceless beasts of burden undeserving of basic human equality. Needless to say, People v. Hall emboldened white folks to openly terrorize Chinese folks without fear of legal consequences, leading to numerous lynchings and massacres and countless smaller crimes and transgressions, which the Chinese had no possibility of redressing. This led to the expression "Chinaman's chance" — meaning, you're screwed.
In the late 1860s, with the end of the Civil War and the issuing of the Emancipation Proclamation, Southern white plantation-owners experimented with the idea of replacing black slaves with Chinese "coolies" (the Chinese word kuli means "bitter strength"). To this end, the first Chinese Labor Convention assembled in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1869, during which Cornelius Koopmanschap (who had famously supplied the Central Pacific Raildroad with Chinese workers) captured the imaginations of hundreds of delegates and raised one million dollars for the project of bringing thousands of Chinese workers to the South.
By 1870, some 2,000 Chinese were working in the cotton fields of Mississippi and Arkansas, and on plantations and shrimp farms in Louisiana. It took less than a year for serious conflicts to emerge, as the Chinese viewed themselves as employees with rights, while their white employers viewed them as slaves. The Chinese staged strikes to protest whippings and other harsh treatment; they also proved to be shrewd negotiators of labor contracts, and when their contracts were violated, they sued their employers in court — ironically, a right which they did not enjoy in California but which they successfully applied in the post-Civil War South. Within a few years, both sides had become disillusioned with the failed experiment; most Chinese laborers walked off their jobs to seek employment elsewhere or open their own businesses.As the country's economic recession deepened in the 1870s, white hostility toward the Chinese became even more frenetic. The most popular poem of the era was "The Heathen Chinese" which depicted the Chinese as sneaky cheaters. Written by Bret Harte and originally published in Overland Monthly, the poem was picked up by every major newspaper in the country; it was set to music; illustrated pamphlet versions flew off newstand shelves; Mark Twain even collaborated with the poet on a stage version titled Ah Sin. In 1875, the American Medical Association conducted a study into the role of the Chinese in spreading syphilis in the US, building on top of a paper by Dr. Arthur Stout entitled "Chinese Immigration and the Physiological Causes of the Decay of the Nation". The study found no evidence to support its hypotheses, yet the AMA did not back away from its racist contentions. This is what white folks call "data". "A Picture for Employers: Why They can live on 40 cents a day, and They can't".
In San Francisco, city officials also passed the "cubic air law" (requiring lodging houses to have 500 cubic feet of open space for each adult) and the "sidewalk ordinance" (making it a crime to walk through the city carrying a pole over one's shoulder with a basket at each end). To enforce the cubic air law, police often raided Chinese lodging houses in the middle of the night to drag immigrants to jail (the law was not enforced in non-Chinese neighborhoods, nor in the crowded jails themselves). The sidewalk ordinance was aimed at shutting down Chinese laundries; although it failed to do so.Indeed the story of Chinese laundries is a fascinating one. Contrary to popular belief, there is no ancient tradition of laundromats in China, since most families there do their own laundry. However, the Chinese arriving in America discovered that white men regarded doing laundry as "women's work" beneath their dignity. In mining camps, at construction sites, in cities, Chinese immigrants simply took advantage of an exploitable market demand in order to earn some money; and they could start a laundry business with very little up-front investment. However, the turn of events that really blew up Chinese laundries was, ironically, the attempt of a white businessman named James B. Harvey to exploit Chinese labor in his Passaic Steam Laundry company, a large-scale operation based in Belleville, New Jersey. Many East coast capitalists at that time had begun importing Chinese laborers from the West coast in order to break strikes (some industrialists even ended strikes by simply hiring one Chinese man to walk in and out of a factory, leading white strikers to believe that many Chinese were arriving). Harvey's laundry service had previously employed mostly Irish women, whose unionizing had become a hassle; so he fired all of his white workers and replaced them with Chinese workers. Unfortunately for Harvey, the Chinese men turned out to be just as demanding in their negotiations, and went on strike just as often, as their female Irish counterparts. Disgusted with the experiment, Harvey fired all of his Chinese workers in 1885. But these Chinese folks had learned the inner workings of a major laundry operation; they scattered across the East coast and went into business, inviting relatives to join them in upstarts. Within a few years, 2,000 Chinese laundries were running in New York alone. Meanwhile in California, a second state constitution was ratified in 1879 which made it illegal for corporations to hire "any Chinese or Mongolian". As a result, the Chinese were pretty much forced to go into business for themselves; and laundromats, restaurants, and small grocery stores were solid markets. These were all mom-and-pop operations with long hours, tight budgets, and lodging in the back. No matter what racist laws got thrown at them, many Chinese found ways to make it work. In 1881, as anti-Chinese sentiment reached a frenzied peak, California Senator John F. Miller roared on the floor of Congress that he and his colleagues must "preserve American Anglo-Saxon civilization without contamination or adulteration ... from the gangrene of oriental civilization ... Why not discriminate? Why aid in the increase and distribution over our domain of a degraded and inferior race, and the progenitors of an inferior sort of men?" On May 6, 1882, still in the wake of the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment guaranteeing democratic rights to people of all races, President Chester Arthur signed into law the first Chinese Exclusion Act, banning Chinese entry (and re-entry) into the US and forbidding all persons of Chinese descent from being naturalized as US citizens. Over the next 25 years, Congress would continue to pass racist legislation aimed at curtailing the rights of Chinese, forcing them to carry special certificates at the risk of deportation, denying them habeus corpus and the right to appeals, outlawing miscegenation and ownership of land, and generally initiating a period of anti-Chinese terror known as "The Driving Out". On multiple occasions, bloody race riots erupted against the Chinese in California, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming, requiring federal troops to intervene; though the troops themselves sometimes joined in burning and looting Chinese districts. Between 1880 and 1900, the total number of Chinese in America fell by some 30 percent.In response to the Exclusion laws, Chinese folks across the country pooled money to mount a series of legal challenges to this unconstitutional legislation. Famous cases such as Chae Chan Ping v. United States (1888), Fong Yue Ting v. United States (1893), and Lem Moon Sing v. United States (1895) went before the Supreme Court. In every case, the Supreme Court upheld the right of Congress to pass legislation which discriminated on the basis of ethnicity. Yet the Chinese continued to take their fight to the courts. In addition to legal struggles, the Chinese community simultaneously fought for their rights outside of the law: by developing means of exploiting whatever legal loopholes could be found. For example, in the case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898), the Supreme Court conceded that, under the Fourteenth Amendment, a person of Chinese descent born on US soil was indeed a US citizen; this meant that an American-born Chinese could claim to have children in China who could come to the US on the principle of jus sanguinis. This gave rise to the famous sytem of "paper sons" in which the paperwork for US immigration slots, based on fictional family ties, was sold in China. And after the San Francisco earthquake in 1906 destroyed the city's citizenship records, the "paper sons" industry really got humming. .
Yet another front in the struggle was solidarity from activists back in China. In 1905, an anti-US boycott was organized in Shanghai to protest the treatment of Chinese in America: workers quit American companies; homes and businesses moved out of US-owned buildings; contracts with US merchants were cancelled; newspapers refused to run American advertisements; protesters prevented American ships from unloading their cargo. The boycott spread throughout China. Fundraisers to sustain the boycott were held in US Chinatowns. Many American businesses in China were forced to shut down. The boycott cost the US some $40 million in Chinese trade that year. In response, the US government demanded that the Qing government crush the boycott; they complied, but the point had been made; and while the policies of Exclusion remained in place, President Teddy Roosevelt issued an executive order to immigration officials to end abusive treatment of Chinese merchants; and proposals for a new round of anti-Chinese legislation were scrapped.
Which brings us full circle, to the establishment of the Angel Island Immigration Station in 1910.~ ~ ~
So what does all this history teach us about the ongoing struggle for immigrant rights here in the US?
Obviously, each immigrant group faces unique circumstances and challenges. WIth regard to Mexican immigration, the story is perhaps even more convoluted than most, seeing that the Southwestern US was illegally invaded and annexed in la invasión norteamericana (i.e. The Mexican-American War); which means that in many cases, today's descendants of European invaders are barring Mexicans from the land of their own indigenous ancestors, or at least land where Spanish-American residence pre-dates that of Anglo-Americans.Nevertheless I think there are important areas of commonality between the Chinese and Mexican immigrant experiences; there are common echoes. The economic scapegoating; the media stereotyping; the racist xenophobic policies and laws; the unconstitutional detentions and deportations; the raw hatred and violence. These are experiences we share. I also believe in attempting to cautiously draw lessons from historical struggles in order to inspire and inform today's struggles. I will explore my thoughts on this matter in an upcoming post (for now, I think you've probably heard more than enough from me). So I'll simply wrap up with a question: What potential lessons stand out for you in the Chinese American story with regard to today's struggles? What can we learn that has strategic or tactical relevance to the current fight? What ideas or inspirations will help us carry that fight forward?
It seems like the civil rights movement is starting again, but instead of blacks fighting for their rights and liberties the U.S is being faced with immigrants from latin speaking countries (not just Mexicans) who are struggling to work in this counrty (legally). We have learned through history that the government will not give the oppressed what it's asking for but they must demand it from the government. Immigrants are creating non-violent tension through non-violent campaing to force a government who is not willing to negotiate to confront the issue. People who are being oppressed by working min wage, and helping the country maintain its great economy (compared to other less fortunate countries) cannot remaing oppressed forever. Do you seriously think that immigrants who want to keep working here (legally) will take over the jobs of doctors, lawyers or senators? what they are asking for is to keep working in the farms or maybe even at the local malls as cooks or waiters. What they are asking for is to simply be able to feed their families without having to worry about someone taking that necessity from them. We just happen to be so used to not worrying about such basic need that we can't seem to be human enough to help them out. after all weren't we all immigrants at what point in this country? or were we all native americans?

Misinterpretation of Lou Dobbs in War to the Middle Class. What Lou Dobbs Knows about middle class? What, where, who are the American middle class? How he knows what is the middle Class. Which facts that he is using to classify, Salary, leisure, livelihood, etc. If he is fighting for the Middle class. why he is not fighting for Poverty, Lower class Americans?
Why he mention rhetoric's comments that Unlawful immigrant are against the Middle class Americans and continue mentioned that they are taking non skilled jobs? Nonsense Lou...
He suffering from xenophobic Dementia. He is racist, Liar, bigotry, Anti-journalist and
Xenophobic against Mexicans.
Lou Report on his show that was alarming trend that Unlawful immigrants were taking jobs away from Americans and lowering wages. Lou Dobbs felted being a American Middle Class?
DOBBS: We report here night after night, year after year, about quality jobs disappearing in this country and Americans working harder and harder for stagnant wages at best.
Kitty Pilgrim reports now on another alarming trend, workers penalized for their experience.
KITTY PILGRIM, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice over): Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wrote a scathing letter to the CEO of Circuit City after the company fired 3,400 workers and then offered to hire them back at a lower salary. "These actions will severely harm and disrupt the lives of these employees, many of whom relied on their jobs at Circuit City as their lone source of income and their exclusive means of supporting themselves, their spouses, and children."
The American middle class worker faces a brutal new environment. Older top wage earners are fired and younger workers make less. Economists say the young generation is being paid less. Lou they have being paid base on their experience or you want a younger journalist get the same salary you do without any experience.
LAWRENCE MISHEL, ECONOMIC POLICY INST.: Why shouldn't the American people expect more every -- every generation? We are more and more productive. And you would think that every working family would be able to see the younger people move in the jobs that pay substantially more than what the parents were able to earn, given the fact they usually have much more education and more skills.
PILGRIM: Working harder for less is a provable fact. Since 1995, productivity is up 33 percent. But real wages have been falling since 2000.
KEN GOLDSTEIN, THE CONFERENCE BOARD: We've found out that workers are -- they're dissatisfied with how hard they have to work. They're dissatisfied about their job conditions over and above how much they're being paid.
PILGRIM: Economists say that 15 million retail workers are especially vulnerable. That's 13 percent of the workforce.
With the flood of cheap goods for sale, retailers can't raise prices. So they have to trim labor costs to make a profit.
And Circuit City isn't alone. Months ago, Wal-Mart instituted salary caps for their workers.
PILGRIM: Now, workers are feeling beaten. The Conference Board's annual employee survey hit the lowest level in 20 years, and two-thirds of workers are dissatisfied with the workload and the potential for advancement -- Lou.
DOBBS: All of those, for example, Chinese goods in the case of Wal-Mart, as we watch then very few manufacturing jobs in those -- for those products in this country and then retail the last refuge to see this happening, I mean, it's horrible.
PILGRIM: It certainly is. It's a ripple effect, and we're starting to see the last phase of this ripple, the people actually sell the goods. And then, of course, the last phase is people can't afford to buy them anymore.
DOBBS: Well, let's hope people wake up before we get to the so- called last phase. I think more and more Americans are waking up and have had a belly full of this nonsense

That's Outrageous and unaceptable to put this Man in parole when he is a repeated violent sexual predator.
Just look how the Law protect to Sexual predators, Child molester, Shyster from getting away from being in Jail.
Murder victim's family upset inmate is up for parole
KENS 5 Eyewitness News
A convicted rapist and murderer from Bandera County sentenced to life in prison is up for parole again. The murder victim's family is outraged and wants Gerald Sorensen to remain behind bars.
Sorensen was spared the death penalty, and so far has served 23 years of a life sentence. But some family members of Denise Walker want him to die in prison.
"I think he's a threat to the public," said Denise’s brother, Billy Walker.
Billy is an attorney in Bandera, and the only picture he keeps around of his sister is from their childhood.
"It's my opinion that he will return here and commit more violent sexual crimes," he said.
In 1984, Sorensen was out on parole for a sexual assault that happened in Bexar County. He lived adjacent to Denise, and on Jan. 31, 1984, Denise was sexually assaulted and shot to death.
Denise was a schoolteacher and taught Sunday School at the First Baptist Church in Bandera. A memorial tree was planted in her honor in front of the church.
"He's a recidivist, a repeat violent sexual criminal, and you can look at his record and the crimes escalate each time," Billy said.
In 2004, Sorensen was denied parole and the parole board is now reviewing his case again.
It's not clear why, but two separate trials were held in separate counties that spared Sorensen the death penalty.
"I think it was a mistake or poor judgment or self-interest, I don't think it was bribery or a friend of Mr. Sorensen's more than likely a mistake," Billy said.
Sorensen has a third sexual assault conviction on his record from 1965 out of Sacramento, Calif.
The review process by the parole board usually takes 4 to 6 months.

Another Outrage child abuse due to Incompetent Social Services.
Couple may lose their children after foster child's death.
June 19, 2007
By JACK KRESNAK
State child abuse investigators are seeking to terminate the parental rights of two Van Buren Township foster parents to their two biological children on grounds that they are suspects in the murder of a 3-year-old foster boy in their home.
Christine Woodward, 34, and Lasana Kanva, Jr., 37, are expected to attend a preliminary hearing in Wayne County juvenile court this afternoon on a petition by the state Department of Human Services to terminate their rights to their children, a 15-year-old girl and 11-year-old son.
Woodward and Kanva have denied causing any harm to their foster child, James Bradley Jr. of Detroit, who died of blunt force trauma and brain swelling on April 13 at the University of Michigan Mott’s Children’s Hospital.
The parents and their children give similar stories about finding James unconscious in an upstairs bedroom on May 8. But doctors at Mott have called James’ severe injuries the result of child abuse.
The only people who had access to James within two days before Kanva’s call to 911 that day were the family and Woodward’s mother, Janice Johnson, 50, of Detroit, according to reports filed in the juvenile court.
An autopsy by Washtenaw County Medical Examiner Dr. Bader Cassin said James died of head injuries, including a skull fracture that led to brain swelling. Cassin ruled the manner of death as homicide. Wrong doing of a murder a child that's absurd, take them to Jail because they have the responsability to provide a good care, and a shelter home for that Kid.
Through an attorney, the couple has denied any wrongdoing.
This is totally amazing how child abusers get away from Murder with the conspiracy of the law.

Michigan Mon Gets 12 to 22 years for sex ~Contract~ on underage Daughter.
Tuesday, June 19, 2007
MUSKEGON, Mich. A Muskegon Heights woman was sentenced Monday to 12 to 22 1/2 years in prison after authorities said she used a written contract to arrange for her 15-year-old daughter to have sex with the woman's boyfriend for two months while she recuperated from abdominal surgery.
The 41-year-old woman, whom is not identifying to protect her daughter's identity, in April pleaded no contest in Muskegon County Circuit Court to three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
A no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt but judges treat it as a guilty plea at sentencing.
"What you've done to your daughter is one of the worst things I can think of," Judge Timothy G. Hicks said at the sentencing hearing.
Authorities said the woman agreed to the arrangement because she feared losing her boyfriend, Michael Fitzgibbon, while recuperating from the operation.
Fitzgibbon, 37, was sentenced in March to up to 15 years on each of four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct after prosecutors said he, the woman and her daughter signed the contract.
Fitzgibbon was also sentenced to 12 to 25 years for each of two other cases involving first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges involving a 12-year-old girl. He is serving the sentences at the same time after pleading no contest to the charges in February.
Another assault to childs Innocence. Cops Investigate substitute teacher allegedly having sex with Daughter’s Boyfriend.Monday, June 18, 2007
By Leo D. Rommel
A female substitute teacher who taught in a Wisconsin school district has been fired and is under investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with her daughter's 13-year-old boyfriend,.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is investigating allegations that the 38-year-old Prescott School District substitute teacher had sex with the seventh grader, Lt. Dennis Sorenson said.
The investigation began after the student’s father filed a civil restraining order on behalf of his son against the woman following an incident that allegedly took place on May 17, said Sorenson, who is in charge of the investigation for Pierce County.
That evening, the father said he found the two having a “middle of the night rendezvous” together at the teacher’s home after the boy stole his mother’s car, WCCO-TV reported. The woman’s husband and 13-year-old daughter were home at the time, the station said.
The name of the teacher cannot be released because the investigation is still in its initial stages and no charges have been filed, Sorenson said.
The boy's father told the Prescott Journal that he believed the teacher and his son had sexual contact and sexual intercourse. In statements given during the process of obtaining the restraining order, he said the contact included kissing, touching each other while naked and exposing private parts.
The father also stated that his son confessed to being in the teacher’s home and to deleting e-mail messages the two had exchanged, the newspaper reported.
The father later said that he had already made copies of those messages and passed them on to investigators.
The 13-year-old boy’s seventh grade football coach told WCCO-TV that he was appalled by the alleged incident because of the boy’s relationship with the teacher’s daughter.
“He was dating the lady’s 13-year-old daughter before this happened,” Zach Simones told the station.
Roger Hulne, Prescott School District superintendent, said the substitute teacher had been employed by the district since the beginning of the school year and was officially terminated on May 18.“I ended her employment the day after hearing about the allegations,” Hulne said.
The teacher was also once employed at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Prescott, Wis., but that was “about two or three years ago,” Principal Mary Bray said. She declined to comment any further.
It is possible that the woman taught the seventh grader at some point during his academic career because she had substituted at all levels of the district, including the elementary school, high school and all three grades in the middle school, Hulne said.
An independent investigation conducted by the school determined that no other students were inappropriately involved with the woman.
“We have done and will continue do whatever is necessary to keep our schools safe,” Hulne said.

When Demagogues, Xenophobics, racist Play the Leprosy Card, you better Watch Out.
By LAWRENCE DOWNES edited by me.
Published: June 17, 2007
People who want to reform immigration by putting America in lockdown have not been shy about using fear and revulsion to get their point across. Illegal immigrants, they say, are invading the country to reconquer it, to erode our Anglo-Saxon culture and to make us all sick.
Here’s Representative Tom Tancredo, complaining in the Republican presidential debate about pressing 1 for English. (Aliens — they’re in your telephone!) And there’s Lou Dobbs on CNN, helping racist tract-writers to peddle made-up statistics about immigrants and leprosy. (Did the country suddenly have 7,000 cases in three years? No, only a few hundred. But it sure sounds scarier.)
I know at least one person who finds the fear-mongering particularly offensive. She is Nicole Holmes, an American citizen who is a threat to nobody. She is an immigrant, and she has had leprosy.
Ms. Holmes, a cheerful 28-year-old, was born in Trinidad, grew up in Brooklyn and now lives outside Atlanta with her husband, Zakee, and two sons, Aaron, 3, and Andrew, 2. She told me her story by phone recently while her boys ran around the house, tormenting each other. (“Andrew, stop the biting, please,” she said. “Just share the car.”)
Ms. Holmes learned she had leprosy, or Hansen’s disease, when she was 18 and a student at Pace University. Her husband, then in the military, stood by her, taking her to doctor’s appointments and helping her through a difficult treatment complicated by lapses in medical insurance and frequent moves.
She is now fully recovered. She has no signs of the disease except for some scars on her arms where doctors took tissue samples for biopsies. She runs an Internet support group for leprosy patients and doctors, and is a board member of the International Association for Integration, Dignity and Economic Advancement, or IDEA, an organization that works to erase the stigma of leprosy, which it calls “one of the most persistent and pervasive forms of social injustice that society has forced upon its fellow human beings.”
Many people are surprised to learn that leprosy still exists. It is entrenched in parts of the third world, and people with it suffer greatly — often in secret, because their shame is so profound. But leprosy is nothing but a bacterial infection that has been curable for more than 50 years. It is very hard to catch — 95 percent of humans have a natural immunity. Patients are no longer infectious after one treatment, and those who are cured need not fear a relapse.
While the disease has greatly abated around the world, the social side-effects — abuse, discrimination, exile — have not gone away. People with leprosy face obstacles that people with cancer or AIDS do not. Their disease has been feared for millennia. It is in the Bible, linked to sin and uncleanliness and imbedded in the language, as a metaphor for anything loathsome or untouchable.
We think we know about leprosy, but our knowledge is incomplete and full of errors. The leprosy patients we have heard of are superhuman or anonymous. They are either Father Damien of Molokai, who died with the disease, or they are the forgotten Hawaiians he served, who lived in exile and lie by the thousands in unmarked graves.
People with leprosy have learned to be especially wary of writers whose works are often warped by disgust or its sickly cousins, pity and condescension. A recent book, “The Colony: The Harrowing True Story of the Exiles of Molokai,” created a furor when its subjects accused the author, John Tayman, of stealing and distorting their biographies. They had the support of historians like Anwei Law, international coordinator of IDEA, who said the book twisted reality for melodrama, beginning with its cover, a photograph of the Amalfi coast of Italy that looks a lot more ominous than the sea cliffs of Hawaii. They begged to be removed from the book. Mr. Tayman, while defending his accuracy and sensitivity, refused.
Between the possibly well-meaning Mr. Tayman and the blundering Mr. Dobbs, who invited a furor by defending grossly exaggerated leprosy statistics — “If we reported it, it’s a fact,” he said — advocates like Ms. Holmes and Ms. Law have their work cut out for them.
It’s not surprising that people who oppose immigration reform would try to harness the powerful fear of leprosy to their cause. It’s true that nations have been destroyed by waves of newcomers carrying exotic diseases — Google “European,” “measles” and “Indian.” But the public threat of leprosy in the United States — a few hundred cases a year in a country of 300 million — is small.
Most of those cases are among immigrants. But it is a grotesque extrapolation to claim that illegal immigration is causing a leprosy epidemic and to follow with the sweeping conclusion that all immigrants are diseased and dangerous. And anti-amnesty hard-liners are just compounding fear-mongering with foolishness when they seek to crack down on illegal immigrants with an enforcement blanket that would keep anyone who might be ill hidden, off the books and away from doctors.
Villagers in rural Brazil, India and Africa, where leprosy and poverty are endemic and medical care is spotty, have understandable reasons to fear the disease. I’m not sure what our excuse is.
Only Lou Dobbs knows with his Anti Inmigrant, Xenophobic, racist Agenda will be able to determine why, how, when, how many are behind his agenda. And i dont understand why is his purpose to diminishing, torturing, humiliating, those people suffering from Leprosy or hansen disease while distortion the facts.
Those people already had been suffering mentally, Physically and Emotionally.
What else you want to do to them Lou? How in the world you are not ashamed of yourself just because playing like a victim will not exonerate you from be their Judas. why you are not apologize to them and their families? or it's because you dont have compassion for anybody? I am hoping that nobody in your family suffer from Leprosy or hansen disease. Probably you wont labeled them the same way eh?. What a pathetic xenophobic, racist you are Lou.
We believe in the rule of law, but we also believe that we are to oppose unjust laws and systems that harm and oppress people made in God's image, especially the vulnerable (Isaiah 10:1-4, Jeremiah 7:1-7, Acts 5:29, Romans 13:1-7).
The current U.S. immigration system is broken and now is the time for a fair and compassionate solution. We think it is entirely possible to protect our borders while establishing a viable, humane, and realistic immigration system ...
Dobbs doesn’t understand that compassion is not amnesty, and that reforming an unworkable system is not simply flinging open our borders. But then, he long ago stopped being a journalist, and is now one of the leading advocates against comprehensive immigration reform. they need to know the facts of the situation. Misleading and false propaganda from the likes of Lou Dobbs, who works for a respected(??)? news operation, can only poison the debate and demonize a huge number of people in the process.
He also doesn’t seem to understand that most people now believe that bringing our faith into public life is not undermining the separation of church and state. As I’ve said many times, where would America be if Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had kept his faith to himself? And on this issue, given a choice between Jesus and Lou Dobbs, I’ll still choose Jesus
Hidden news from CNN..Shame on CNN. They are more into increasing their rating than Children's protection. Watch your childrens
And shame on all of us to allow that those predators getting away stealing the innocence of our childrens rather than just watch the soapbox of Lou Dobbs and other Media. Let's bring those Human Values back.

Truck driver sentenced to 17 years for child sexual exploitation
Manufactured child pornography
DAYTON, Ohio - A Beavercreek man was sentenced here today to 210 months for exploiting children by manufacturing child pornography. The sentence is a result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Gary M. Black, 52, of the 1800 block of Hildreth Dr. in Beavercreek, Ohio, was sentenced to 17 years and five months in federal prison after pleading guilty to exploitation of a minor before U.S. District Court Judge Walter Rice. Black must also register as a sex offender.
The investigation began in February 2006 after ICE received information that Black was placing pornographic images of children on the Internet.
ICE agents in Columbus executed a search warrant at Black’s residence in February of 2006, during which they seized a computer tower, compact and floppy discs, and a Nikon Digital Camera. A forensic analysis of the seized media revealed 975 images and 783 digital movies containing child pornography. Agents apprehended Black at his residence in September of 2006.
"This case illustrates thedisturbingand sobering truth that some adults will go to great lengths to sexually exploit children," said Brian M. Moskowitz, special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigationsfor Ohio and Michigan. "While we cannot give back the innocence that's been stolen from these children, we can make sure that those who commit these horrible crimes are brought to justice."
This case is part of Operation Predator, ICE's comprehensive initiative to safeguard children from foreign national pedophiles, international sex tourists, Internet child pornographers, and human traffickers. Since Operation Predator was launched in July 2003, ICE agents have arrested more than 10,000 individuals nationwide, including 112 in Ohio.
ICE encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE. Investigators staff this hotline around the clock. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, at 1-800-843-5678 or http://www.cybertipline.com.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Clemmens, Southern District of Ohio, prosecuted this case.

Two Springfield men receive significant prison sentences for trading child porn. Zero Tolerance for Child predators.
Worldwide Internet chat room was used to trade thousands of sexually graphic images of children.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Two Springfield men who traded thousands of graphic images of child pornography via a private international Internet chat room were each sentenced yesterday to more than 19 years in prison. These significant sentences were the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the FBI.
U.S. Attorney Rodger A. Heaton, Central District of Illinois, announced that Billy Joe Bowser, 34, was sentenced to the statutory maximum sentence of 20 years (240 months) in prison. Anthony Adams, 49, was sentenced to 19 years (236 months.) Bowser and Adams each pleaded guilty in October 2006 to receiving, possessing and transporting child pornography. There is no parole in the federal prison system.
The charges resulted from an international ICE investigation of an Internet-based child pornography chat room known as "Kiddypics & Kiddyvids" that was used to facilitate trading thousands of illegal sexually explicit images. The chat room was hosted on the Internet through the WinMX software program that also allowed users to engage in "peer-to-peer" file sharing.
U.S. Attorney Heaton stated, "Trading or collecting images of child pornography is not a victimless crime. Each photo represents an assault on the innocence of an actual child. They are images of graphic physical and sexual abuse of real kids - in this case, some as young as toddlers. Anyone who seeks the perceived anonymity of the Internet to trade in images of these horrific crimes deserves the kind of lengthy sentences imposed here today."
"These significant prison sentences should serve to warn predators who victimize our most vulnerable citizens," said Elissa A. Brown, special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Chicago. "Individuals who engage in such despicable conduct will be fully prosecuted for hurting our children. We will not rest until such child predators are brought to justice."
The investigation found that Bowser had more than 80,000 images of child pornography in his computer collection. These graphic images involved children younger than two years old engaged in sex with adult males, as well as pornographic images of children reflecting violence and bondage. Bowser was charged in February 2006 with his wife, Melissa Bowser, 27. Sentencing for Melissa Bowser is scheduled for March 23.
On Adams' computer, ICE agents found more than 29,000 similar images of child pornography involving violence, bondage, and children under two years of age engaged in sexual acts with adult males.
U.S. Attorney Heaton commended the investigative work performed by the Springfield Computer Crimes Task Force, a multi-agency group dedicated to investigating and prosecuting computer crime. First Assistant U.S. Attorney John Childress, Central District of Illinois, successfully prosecuted these cases.
This investigation was conducted as part of ICE's Operation Predator, an ongoing national ICE enforcement initiative to identify, investigate, arrest and - in the case of foreign nationals - deport child sex predators. Since the initiative began in July 2003, ICE agents have arrested more than 9,500 individuals nationwide, including more than 535 in Illinois.
ICE encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE. Investigators staff this hotline around the clock.
Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may also be reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, at 1-800-843-5678 or http://www.cybertipline.com.

NCMEC Applauds U.S. Marshals and ICE for Capture of Nation’s Most Wanted Accused Child Pornographer
Former Law Enforcement Officer Was Cornered in Hong Kong
Former lawman Kenneth John Freeman, one of the world’s most notorious accused child molesters, was arrested yesterday in Hong Kong. Freeman, 44, was on the U.S. Marshals 15 MOST WANTED fugitives list and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s ICE MOST WANTED FUGITIVES listing. The arrest was based on a formal request by the U.S. State Department. Freeman, a former Washington state resident, is accused of molesting his own young daughter, then posting the videos online.
Internet scenes allegedly showing the girl being raped by her father became one of the most widely downloaded child pornography videos in recent years. Freeman is an avid competitive bodybuilder and computer expert, and formerly worked as a reserve sheriff’s deputy in Benton County, Washington. But since 2005, a series of charges against him by federal and local courts has made him the subject of a worldwide manhunt.
Faced with those charges, Freeman fled the U.S. last year. According to the U.S. Marshals Service, which now coordinates national efforts to capture unregistered sex offenders and individuals charged with child abuse, it is believed that Freeman was living in the city of Suzhou, People’s Republic of China.
“This complex, international case was a challenge for the Marshals, ICE, and our law enforcement partners,” said Director John F. Clark. “But fugitives charged with crimes against children are our top priority. Freeman now will be returned to the United States to face the justice he deserves.”
“The arrest of this accused child molester proves the global reach of our law enforcement partnership,” said Julie L. Myers, Assistant Secretary, Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “Freeman will be returned for trial here, where penalties for child exploitation are among the toughest in the world.”
Law enforcement went public with their search as early last December, when Freeman was featured on television’s America’s Most Wanted. His daughter, now a teenager and an advocate against child sexual abuse, went on TV to tell her story. Clues began to fall into place. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) had long known of a series of child pornography videos showing the abuse of an unidentified girl. They were convinced the child and her abuser were from the Pacific Northwest, and when the Freeman case received national publicity, calls to NCMEC linked the girl on America’s Most Wanted to the unidentified child in the video series.
Sources at the U.S. Marshals said that Freeman’s presence in China was uncovered by an investigative team made up of experts from the Marshals, ICE, the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, and special agents from State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service. It is believed that Freeman was working for a U.S. based firm while in China. No extradition treaty exists between the People’s Republic of China and the United States, but when the Chinese were informed about Freeman they agreed to help. An extradition treaty still exists between Hong Kong and the U.S.
In late April, information was developed by investigators that Freeman intended to travel to Hong Kong. Upon his arrival yesterday, he was arrested by law enforcement officials from the Chinese government. Freeman now faces extradition to the United States to face federal charges, as well as those in Washington State. This case is part of ICE’s Operation Predator, an initiative to safeguard children from pedophiles, international sex tourists, internet child pornographers, and human traffickers.

Shocking news. The American Values. The Rape of Latinas in the US Military. That's disgusting,These people trespassed the human dignity and tortured our trust and respects for Humanity. that is totally unacceptable for what we consider to be the essential guiding principles of Humanity..
I heard and viewed the "goody two-shoes" First Lady on ABC's "Good Morning America" and almost vomited when I heard her say that the sexual torture of Iraqi POW's and female detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison was not what the USA stands for. I ask, where did she study US history? I would like to invite her to "obtain some culture" and view the play "Ramona" that has been playing continuously for 81 years in Hemet, Alta California. The rape of American Indians, Mexicans and African slaves has been an ongoing enterprise by barbaric whites ever since European savages set foot on the Western Hemisphere. Perhaps, the "First Lady" can be excused for her ignorance. White Texians are not known to be particularly "educated" nor "cultured"!
The USA military has pillaged and raped the American Indians and the Mexicans in the southwest in the same way they are now doing to the Iraqis. Even today, naive Latinas who join the US Armed Forces are being brutalized and raped by racist Jews and white military personnel. They are being recruited for the exclusive enjoyment of depraved US Jewish and white military personnel. If they are doing this within the US military ranks, what can Iraqi men and women expect in their own occupied land? The brutalization of people of color by white military armed forces is a historical fact.
Another "dirty secret" of the Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz run Pentagon is the shameful "raping" of women of color in the US military that has reached "epidemic proportions". There are hundreds of Mexican-American and other enlisted women in the US military whose lives have been totally shattered by a military they thought would never betray them. Their lives are now in total shambles after the Pentagon threw them out and blame them for the brutal rapes that took place while they were in uniform.
There are hundreds of documented rapes of Latinas in the US military and thousands more that were never reported because of fear and shame of the victims. This is also true of the hundreds of rapes of Iraqi women and young girls that took place in Baghdad during the early days of the US occupation. The following five cases are just examples of the hundreds that have occurred during recent years.
The Rape Case of Second Lieutenant Orlinda Marquez
Orlinda Marquez, one of many Mexican-Americans brainwashed by the US educational system, dreamed of being an officer in the military ever since she was a kid in the fifth grade. Ms. Marquez confesses, "I bought a rucksack from an Army surplus store and ran to and from school with that rucksack." Naive and innocent Orlinda Marquez took an ROTC scholarship and graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in Golden with a degree in engineering and geophysics. She fulfilled her lifetime dream and joined the Army Corps of Engineers in 1987 as a Second Lieutenant.
Second Lieutenant Marquez was brutally raped by a non-commissioned officer while she slept in her barracks and her entire illustrious career and life completely destroyed. She has than self-destructed after a racist US command that has no respect for women of color blamed her for the rape.
The Rape Case of Airwoman Arabella Rivera
Arabella Rivera came from a military family. Her brother was in the Air Force and her father in the US Army. Ms. Rivera , at age 18, joined the Air Force, and was sent to Lowry Air Force Base. Naive and innocent as most Catholic girls, the white military beasts started conspiring against her. Her first orders were to wear short skirts. She had been in photography school at the base for about three months when she was set up for a sexual assault. An officer she trusted forced her to perform oral sex in his car. "I didn't know what the hell he was doing. He grabbed me and pulled me down. ... He wouldn't let me go. I was choking. I thought I would die," she recalled.
After that night, her life was in shambles and she began to drink heavily to relieve her shame. A few days later, walking home from the airmen's club, the same man followed her to a remote part of the base and sodomized her. She said she screamed and cried until he let her go.
The next week, when a master sergeant followed her into a bathroom and began putting his hands up her shirt, she "freaked out," she said. He stopped, and told her the incident never happened, and that life would be hell if she told anyone. Arabella Rivera was subsequently assaulted numerous times. After one incident she was forced to work with her attacker. Arabella Rivera has had intensive therapy, but had to drop out after an extremely traumatic session.
She never reported the assaults because of the threats and feeling that no one would believe her.
Being a female in the military, she said, meant "you had to fight tooth and nail to compete with the men. So I became one of the boys. Had a foul mouth like the men. Drank like them and became promiscuous. I didn't know how to be a lady anymore. I didn't show emotion. I didn't cry."
The above behavior may be the same "syndrome" Lynndie England demonstrated and that is depicted in the the Abu Ghraib torture photographs of Iraqi POW's. Lynndie England reputed to be a lesbian, never-the-less was extremely promiscuous and is now five months pregnant in the brig at Fort Bragg.
Arabella Rivera began therapy, but at first reliving the trauma was too much to take. "I crawled on the floor, cried and cried and said, 'I can't do this anymore.' "I didn't want to die, but I didn't want to live." She ended up in the psychiatric ward of VA Hospital.
The Rape Case of Sailor Yuriria Acuna Pineda
Yuriria Acuna Pineda of the US Navy now lives in Los Angeles . . . homeless. A young Mexican-American woman of very meager economic resources, she has been unable to find help for her mental problems due to the brutal rape inside a bathroom by another sailor by the name of Roger Northern II in June of 2001. The US Navy investigator by the name of Kevin O'Neil concluded that Yariria had "asked for it"!
At a homeless shelter for veterans in Long Beach, Acuna Pineda has applied for benefits for post-traumatic stress syndrome and has begun counseling.
Although she is only 24, she said it's hard to feel hopeful about her future when she had planned to remain in the Navy. "Everything I learned in there, it's useless now. I have to start all over. I feel it was all taken from me, what I had worked so hard to get."
The Rape Case of US Army Medic Susana Armenta
As one of the few women working in an ambulance unit at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii, 18-year-old Susana Armenta did not question a supervisor when he instructed her to wear only dresses.
She was alone in her barracks early one morning when her supervisor walked in and sexually assaulted her. As he was leaving, Armenta, now 39, recalls his saying, "Thank you. You just made my day."
She did not report him, she said, for fear she would be demoted or punished.
Two months later, she left the service and eventually joined the Reserves.
In 1991, Armenta was activated for Operation Desert Storm. She was at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs doing laundry when she walked back into her room and suddenly felt a huge shove.
"I remember seeing a face and blond hair. I know the person was very heavy because I was hurting so bad," she recalled.
She remembers few details of the rape itself, but can recall waking up the next morning feeling numb. "I went to the bathroom and saw the blood and the stickiness and the bruises," she said. "I took the longest shower of my life, and that was it."
Weeks later, she realized she had contracted a sexually transmitted disease from the assault, she said, and was treated by a doctor.
After the rape, Armenta returned to work. "I drank wine to keep myself under control. I was so scared I would see him again. One day at work I began crying hysterically. I asked for a chaplain, and the next thing I knew I was admitted to the psychiatric hospital."
The Rape Case of Airwoman Sofia Rodriguez
Sofia Rodriguez was 25 and had been in the Air Force one year when she became pregnant. She was in the third month of pregnancy at McClellan Air Force Base in California when she was raped. A staff sergeant brutally raped her and she almost lost her baby.
"The next thing I remember ... he was raping me," Rodriguez said. "I couldn't move. All I could do was cry and think, 'What's going to happen to my baby?' I can remember the tears coming down my face, and he was saying I was crying because I was enjoying it. He had his hand on my throat."
Rodriguez doesn't remember how she got away. "I went to my dorm, locked myself in my room, and my whole life changed." She says , "I blamed myself. I even thought about suicide."
The trauma from rape, she said, "takes your life if you let it. ... I joined the military with my whole heart. You don't expect to be raped by your own peers or superior."
The above five case of rape of Latinas in the US Armed Forces are just examples of the hundreds that have occurred in recent years. There are thousands more that never get reported or investigated. These and the known cases of rape in occupied Iraq are not mere isolated cases as the First Lady and her husband George Bush are saying. It is a pattern that has been established ever since the hordes of invaders pillaged years ago and are now doing in Islamic countries. This is one primary reason why many we do not consider the stupid jock Pat Tillman a hero. He was, for us, just another "white (or Jewish) rapist" responsible for the murder of an unknown number of Afghani children. There are actually "no heros" in the current Zionist instigated war against Islam. Soldiers of Mexican descent in the US military should instead fight for the honor of the Mexican-American women that were raped as described above.
For all the elected Congress of Mexican descent to STOP giving our community mere "lip service" and start doing something constructive in making sure, that at least, the US military cease "raping" our enlisted military women. The US military has been accused of raping a 9 year old Iraqi girl in Baghadad, a 12 year old Iraqi girl at the Abu Ghraib prison and of the sodomization of Iraqi boys in addition to adult Iraqi POW's. What is it going to take for all five of you to speak out vociferously?
Stand up for moral principles and human justice around the world now.
Stop the rape of Mexican women and other Latinas!
Stop the rape and the occupation of Iraq now!
Just look at this incoherent information from Christine Roman and Lou Dobbs. From 3,000 to 8,000 crossing our border each day. Lou contradict himself that the goverment dont know how many unlawful inmigrants are here either crossing our borders.
So how Christine roman reflect that up to 20 million on november 04, 2006 so if they crossing 3,000 a day why until know they still reflecting the same numbers..
I dont understand how CNN, Times Warner should allow to using news media to create fear, anger, and denigrating other ethnicities or groups.
Just another pair of paranoias, xenophobics,racist journalist.
Monday, June 11, 2007
Just another pathetic liar, racist, xenophobic against humanity. That's ashame when they pronounce this Country is rule by the law, principles, Values and freedom. I wonder of what? when somebody like this person denigrating humanity, attack ethnicities, with racist remarks to Indivuals, Countries, etc.
How far we will allow to somebody hummiliate the humanity like him on this world?.
April 1, 2006: These filthy, disease ridden, two-legged bags of human debris are too stupid to believe....Just think, America, if we bring enough of them here, they can do for America exactly what they did for Mexico! Turn our whole country into a crime-ridden, drug infested slum....These people are sub-human. I would love it if folks who do have such weapons, used them on the crowds on April 10 [at immigration rallies]. I advocate machine gunning these invaders to death at their rallies!
March 31, 2006: Our forefathers didn't need permission from the government to kill invading Mexicans at the time of the Alamo and WE don't need government permission to kill them now. These people are domestic enemies and should be attacked with force and violence.
March 29, 2006: They come here against our laws, they breed like wild animals while we white Americans have been going about our affairs, earning money, paying our bills and such....It is time to fight. To kill such invaders....If you don't fight AND don't support those of us who do, when we're done with them, we can come for you.
March 27, 2006: Over 1000 Americans, polled over a two week period, selected direct physical attacks against Congressmen and Senators as the best way to convey our disdain for immigration....From hitting them in the face with brass knuckles, to detonating truck bombs outside Capitol office buildings, Americans are saying they are fed-up with immigration.
March 26, 2006: Clean your guns. Have plenty of ammunition. April 10 is the day we fight....Wherever thousands of illegal aliens gather is the place. This is the perfect scenario, opportunity and obligation for LONE WOLF action....Go to the area well in advance, scope out several places to position yourself then do what has to be done....I think it would be correct for Military members to fly strafing runs against the assembled hordes. They wouldn't have to worry about being Court Martialed and sentenced to death; the U.S. Military hasn't executed a member since April 13, 1961!....I would love to see private pilots come in low, dump their fuel over the crowds and someone near the crowds throw a flare to ignite the fuel!
March 23, 2006: I think someone ought to tell Senator [Hillary] Clinton about some of the VIOLENT methods folks voted to employ upon Senators and Congressmen in THIS poll....We wouldn't want to see her pretty face ruined from brass knuckles or her skull cracked open with a baseball bat. Although I wouldn't shed a tear of those things happened.
March 20, 2006: Hey U.S. Military Members: Is THIS what you signed-up for? To DIE for ISRAEL? Filthy Jews in a filthy country that HATE your Christianity and use you as cannon fodder? Jews that are so disgusting they've been thrown out of every country on earth throughout history?....In the interest of self preservation I advocate that the United States Military do what is necessary regarding their rogue Commander In Chief. You know what has to be done....Better yet, put him in Air Force One, fly him to Israel, give him a parachute and throw him out over that shithole.
March 17, 2006: To my knowledge, mine is the only web site in the world that talks about killing Supreme Court justices and members of Congress in THIS piece....I actually use the term "patriotic assassination!"....So, here it is for all to see. The corridors of power DO IN FACT tremble at what is spoken on this web site and on my radio show. We ARE being heard. They apparently FEAR us.
March 13, 2006: I think a vigilante execution of the federal prosecutor would send the right message to other U.S. Attorneys and their underlings that they can be gotten to and made to pay a terrible price when they screw up. Mark down the name of this federal prosecutor (just in case).
February 6, 2006: We Christians would do well to adopt the Muslim strategy. When someone sues to remove the Ten Commandments from a public area, attack, beat and maybe even KILL them. When a federal appeals court rules that Christian Nativity Scenes in New York Schools can be banned while Jew Menorrah's [sic] a Muslim Crescents can remain in the same schools, the Judges on that court should be attacked, beaten and if necessary, KILLED. When someone sues to halt Christian public prayers at football games, school events or local town meetings, that person should be attacked, beaten and if need be, KILLED. Violence works. It makes people think twice before doing something to a particular [sic] person or group of people.
January 11, 2006: Following a Moscow synagogue stabbing of nine Jews:, I just want to take a moment to publicly applaud this action. Almighty God himself has commanded us to be at war with Satan and the spawn of Satan, and this man in Russia exercised that obligation today. I'm proud of him! Congratulations on the STABBING of FILTHY JEWS at a synagogue of Satan, Moscow, Russia!"
December 6, 2005 Following the beating of Professor Paul Mirecki after he made derogatory remarks about Christian fundamentalists and intelligent design:, I am proud to announce that a Kansas College Professor has become the first Christian Basher to be physically beaten for his derision of our beliefs....We are now resorting to the use of force and violence. Whether YOU are among those who are beaten is solely up to you. Leave Christianity alone and you will live in peace. Attack Christianity, it's [sic] symbols or traditions and you put yourself at personal risk of severe consequences....If any of you know of any other people who need a beating over this issue kindly e-mail the details to me.
November 11, 2005: Under the headline, "KIKE KIDS HARASS SENIOR CITIZENS SURROUND HOME OF 81 AND 82 YEAR OLD MEN, TAUNTING THEM ABOUT WORLD WAR 2!", Turner wrote: "Claiming the men were guards at a Nazi camp 60 years ago, these savage jew [sic] pigs surrounded the home and taunted the men! These high school imbeciles were incited to this action by a Rabbi; the same type that incited the Crucifixion of Christ! These aggressive Yids show no mercy; not even for senior citizens in their eighties! These jews [sic] are truly SCUM."

November 6, 2005: Commenting on the North African immigrant riots in France:
"I love the way the media tries to divert attention from who is really doing all this harm: SAVAGE N.... BEASTS! They are allowed into a civilized, white, first-world country. They cannot fit in because they simply do not have the genetic make-up to assimilate properly. Then they get angry that they cannot keep up; with rioting, pillaging and burning the inevitable result. When will the politically-correct crowd realize this irrefutable fact and stop pushing their stupid multi-culturalism on the civilized world?"
October 31, 2005: "Slowly but surely we are headed toward the solution that I have been advocating for years: KILL ILLEGAL ALIENS AS THEY CROSS INTO THE U.S. When the stench of rotting corpses gets bad enough, the rest will stay away."
One of Turner's supporters, added: "It's time to assemble private, hunter teams that go around "cleaning up the neighborhood" the old fashioned way - through extreme violence!"
October 30, 2005: "HALLOWEEN IS THE PERFECT TIME OF THE YEAR TO COMMIT KILLINGS! ...Everyone is expecting folks to be dressed-up in costumes; so if you were to do so, it would not be abnormal. This is the PERFECT opportunity to go kill whomever needs killing; to do so in public and not worry about being seen because you can be in costume with facial make-up not just a mask. Of course, have a second costume stashed somewhere so you can change quick and not be captured by the cops. Bang, target killed. Swoop into nearby alley way, change costumes, walk away casually. It is my earnest hope that a lot of this country's problems will be solved this way tomorrow. Remember, a properly placed bullet can change the world!"
October 27, 2005: "What I want to say to Black Americans, and I mean this, I mean this...your ancestors came here against their will in chains. If the Black community does not clean up its act and reign [sic] in its hoodlums...all of you and I mean *all* of you, can leave here the same way. That's right, against your will and in chains. Think we can't do it? Look at the Indians. All we have to do is play cowboys and Indians..see where they are? Well, the time is rapidly approaching where we're going to play cowboys and niggers. Get the picture."
October 11, 2005: "For the second time in a week, multiple Mexicans have been found shot dead just inside the U.S. Border. ! I ADVOCATE KILLING MORE OF THEM! For years I have been publicly advocating on my radio show and this web site, that Mexican illegal aliens be SHOT DEAD as they cross into the U.S. illegally. Now, they ARE being shot dead! I hope my rhetoric contributed to their deaths. I plant the seeds verbally and the seeds grow in the minds of others…I am proud to advocate even MORE killings! Illegal aliens should be KILLED as soon as they cross the border into the U.S…. Water stations placed in the desert should be poisoned. When enough of the illegals are KILLED, the rest will get the message not to come here. Death is a great deterrent! Even better is that it takes around 36 hours before cops even find the dead bodies. You can go on "safari" to kill dozens of these brown-skinned, sub-human animals and be long gone before the cops ever find your handy work."
October 5, 2005: "I long for the day that an American conservative does to an American President what a Jewish conservative did to Yitzhak Rabin in Israel."
September 25, 2005: "Since Israel feels it is OK to bomb schools that raise money for causes it doesn't like, then I guess it would be OK to bomb jewish [sic] Yeshivas that raise money for things we don't like?!?!?!? After all, if schools are now legitimate military targets for Israel, they must then be legitimate military targets for everyone. Right? Maybe we should start drawing up lists of Jewish Yeshivas here in the United States?"
One of Turner's supporters, SpartanWhite Knight responded to Turner's comments: "Its [sic] like I always say, little Jew bastards grow up to be big Jew devils. If arabs [sic] living in America were to bomb exclusive Jew schools, neighborhoods and gated communities in America in "retaliation", things would be as they ought to be." Another supporter, Rumplestiltskin, "encouraged people to attack synagogues in New Jersey. In a previous email on July 18, Rumplestiltskin provided the addresses of specific yeshivas in New Jersey, in case Al Qaeda needed a Jewish target to attack.
September 20, 2005: On the New York Police Department for breaking up an unauthorized anti-war rally: "Your bullet-resistance vests will not protect you from 30-06 rifles...None of us care if your police department, District Attorneys or Supreme Court Judges like it; you will all obey or you can be forced to obey…"
September 14, 2005: Discussing the judge who ruled that the "Pledge of Allegiance" is unconstitutional: "Let me just take this opportunity to remind U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton, that I, me, Hal Turner, uttered on this radio show that a ruling that had been made by a different Federal Judge, Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, in Chicago...I uttered that her ruling made her worthy of being killed and in March of this year her family was murdered. I don't like this ruling that was issued by U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton in San Francisco, saying that the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional. I hope I don't have to make a similar utterance about Judge Karlton like I made about Judge Lefkow. You people on the Federal Bench think you can't be gotten to...you *can* [asterisks in original] be gotten to."
July 15, 2005: "In my opinion it's time to start ASSASSINATING MEXICAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS …I once again advocate using EXTREME VIOLENCE against Mexicans. They should be shot and killed while crossing into this country illegally. Once they're dead, their heads should be cut off and put on pike poles as a warning to others. Any water stations placed in the desert by good samaritans should be intentionally poisoned."
June 5, 2005: "These filthy Israeli scum deserve to be annihilated…If I got my hands on a nuclear, chemical or biological weapon, I would be more than willing to unleash it upon Israel! Short of that, it is my earnest hope that jews [sic] will be attacked everywhere in the world. I hope they are gunned down in the street in drive-by shootings. I hope their businesses are wrecked. I hope their synagogues (of satan) and Yeshivas are bombed into rubble. I hope their neighborhoods are destroyed. I advocate extreme violence against Zionist jews [sic] wherever they are in the world."
June 3, 2005: "Let me blunt; by 'violence' I mean KILLING elected officials and judges whose sinister, evil exercise of power has struck at the very heart of what America really is : A Constitutional Republic based upon White Christian values…I am ready to do what's needed. Are you?"
May 17, 2005: About the mayor of Denver because the restaurant the mayor owned employed an illegal alien who allegedly murdered one cop and wounded another, both of whom were moonlighting as security for a private establishment: "I think the Mayor's employing of this illegal alien (and up to 100 others in a restaurant) and his policy of affording sanctuary to other illegal aliens makes Mayor John Hickenlooper worthy of being KILLED. I sincerely hope that someone takes a rifle with a scope and puts a bullet through Mayor Hickenloopers head. If that's too hard, someone should catch him walking on the street or eating in a restaurant and stab him in the chest, around the third button down form the neck? This generally pierces the heart killing someone instantly."
May 15, 2005: Instead of fighting Muslims, we Christians should be rounding up jews [sic] and killing them here in America. We should bomb their Synagogues, burn down their Yeshivas and violently attack them on the street and in their places of business. I advocate extreme violence against jews [sic] because their history as a people make them worthy of being killed. Jews are the lowest form of sub-human garbage. They deserve to be killed."
I urge the hunting and killing of all illegal aliens as they cross the border into America. I implore Americans to arm themselves with sniper rifles and night vision scopes and kill every Mexican man woman and child who illegally crosses the U.S border. I advocate extreme violence against illegal aliens… I think it would be terrific to trap them by their ankles in steel bear traps then beat them to death when you return and find them in the trap. After they're dead, they should be decapitated and their heads put on spikes as a warning to other Mexicans. I advocate putting poison in desert drinking water stations they use. They deserve to be doused with gasoline and set on fire. Another great idea is to shoot at them from planes and helicopters. Oh, if any American sides with the illegals- like a bigmouth politician or a politically-correct, ass-kissing local Sheriff, lawyers, Judges or the like - it would be a real public service to kill them too! If they side with the enemy, they should share the enemy's fat."
May 4, 2005: On Judge George Greer who presided over the case of Terry Schiavo (the Florida woman whose case gained national attention when her husband had her feeding tube removed and who has since died), as well as the lawyers who were honoring him with an award at a country club: "It is my sincerest hope the country club is attacked with rocket propelled grenades and as a result Judge Greer and all the lawyers giving him an award are killed. If RPG's prove too difficult, then I hope a sniper takes them out as they travel to or from the place; ALL of them!" .
February 28, 2005: Turner advocated assaulting and killing African-Americans on March 15 to commemorate his birthday: "I think a full day of violence against blacks . . . would be a really nice thing . . . complete with lynchings, church burnings, drive-by shootings and bombings to put these subhuman animals back in their place."
January 3, 2005: After posting the presidential inauguration parade route on his Web site, "It seems to me there can be no protection against a 'Turner Diaries' type of mortar attack or a Hezbollah-type rocket attack launched from outside the security zone. Rest assured, if the fed's [sic] get wiped out, I'll be cheering the TV set!"
