Amnesty and Taxes

The argument is that amnesty should be granted to illegal aliens so that they will pay taxes.  The fact is that they do file taxes with an  ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. A 9-digit ITIN number issued by the IRS provides both resident and nonresident aliens with a unique identification number that allows them to file tax returns.  Sounds good?  Not really.

By claiming dependents, even ones outside the U.S., as well as EIC (Earned Income Credit) these illegal aliens are getting refunds of thousands and thousands of dollars without paying a single dime in tax revenue.  They are not only willing to file their taxes, but look forward to huge refunds while Americans struggle to balance the budget ay home and in their local, state, and federal government.  Claims by illegal aliens equalled  $4.2 billion in tax year 2010.

Please take time to read this article.  This information is vital in understanding the situation.  I would love to hear your thoughts also.  I have seen this going on for years, and it is proof positive that amnesty will not generate revenue but cost us billions and billions of dollars.  Justice Scalia comparing illegal aliens to bank robbers wasn’t so out of line after all.

That’s one hell of a high tax for “cheap lettuce!”  Add to this all of the other facts, and we are paying a huge crippling cost to appease and take care of people who don’t belong here.  It is national insanity to avoid doing what is right for America.  The federal government doesn’t even want states to verify citizenship to vote.  Many areas have come up with idiotic laws to protect illegals while penalizing their own, such as Los Angeles‘ impound policy which will take the vehicles of citizens and not illegal aliens.

All Americans will benefit when and if the United States should finally resolve to deport and punish those who violate our laws, including those businesses that hire illegal aliens.  Automatic citizenship for anyone who can come here and have a baby needs to stop.  Eisenhower deported them, we can too.

A nation without borders is not a nation at all.  To do otherwise is national suicide.  We have always had controls in the past.  To regulate who can come here and who can’t is well within the rights of any nation.  There is nothing racist about it.  The poem on the Statue of Liberty was not an eternal pact for open borders.  It’s a poem, not a Constitutional Amendment!

This issue needs to be addressed.  Both sides have ignored it far too long, and “We the People” are left holding the bill.  A bill of $113 billion a year and growing.  $1.6 billion a year in Los Angeles County alone, and yes, Los Angeles is broke!

California Logic – Dangerous and Contagious

Los Angeles has imposed a$1,000 fine for throwing a football or a frisbee on the beaches of L.A. county.  Their reason being that such activity could potentially injure someone.  It is an issue of public safety.

Safety?  This from the place that wishes to make sure that illegal aliens caught driving without a license will not have their cars impounded.  An idea that is so brilliant that the state of California may ban impounding cars statewide for driving without a license.  As LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told the local newspaper that impounding vehicles presents an “unfair burden” and “disproportionate blow” for illegal aliens, who he refers to as a “valuable asset to our community.”  The chief says it’s a “fairness issue” because there is a “vast difference between someone driving without a license because they cannot legally be issued one and someone driving after having their license revoked.”  In other words, under the LAPD guidelines, citizens will have their vehicles impounded at their own expense, but illegal aliens will keep their illegally driven cars, thus illegal aliens are above the law.  And why not, San Francisco says it is ok for illegal aliens to drive without a license.  Problem is people die, like this four-year old in Santa Rosa.  So public safety clearly takes a back seat to illegal alien advocacy.

Don Rosenberg’s 25-year-old son was killed by an unlicensed illegal alien driver who had previously been stopped and let go in San Francisco.  This father will never again have his son or hear his voice.  His letter to Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa of Los Angeles is something that everyone should read.  Consider the stories of all the deaths listed here.

AAA has done several studies on the impact of unlicensed drivers and has some eye-opening statistics.  AAA says that, of the 40,000 fatal car crashes every year, one in five involves an unlicensed driver. The California Department of Motor Vehicles says that compared with licensed drivers, those driving without licenses are five times more likely to be involved in a fatal car accident ,five times more likely to drive drunk and over four times more likely to flee.

The danger is obvious.  We require people to take a test because a vehicle is something that can result is multiple deaths.  It is a privilege, not a right.  If someone is hindered because they engaged in illegal acts we should not revoke laws to allow them to place the public at greater risk.

Politics has become more important than public safety.

I tried to find statistics on deaths by frisbees or footballs but I could find none.  $1,000 fine for throwing a football, but unlicensed illegal alien drivers are perfectly fine.

After all, they played the race card.
