The Startling Impact of Illegal Immigration in Florida

July 11, 2017/in Immigration, Must Read, National Security, Policy, Politics, Social Issues, Taxes, Waste, Fraud and Abuse /by Ruth Roman
Jonathan Hanen, the Atlantic regional field representative from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) recently spoke to the Champions of Liberty Tea Party in Ft. Lauderdale, joined by members of F.L.I.M.E.N, and presented a comprehensive list of statistics which reveal the startling impact of illegal immigration in the state of Florida and the taxpayer’s ultimate burden.

Immigration by the Numbers
Population (2011 Census Bureau estimate) 19,057,542
Illegal Alien Population (2010 FAIR estimate) 820,000
Illegal Alien Share (2010 FAIR estimate) 4.3%
Projected Population 2050 (2006 FAIR estimate) 31,750,000
Dept. of Motor Vehicles, Florida Data 2017
According to the Florida Dept. of Motor Vehicles, in 2017 there was an excess of 20 million registered motor vehicles. They project by 2050 there will be 30% more residents in the state, which means 26 million more autos on the highway. Does anyone believe that this is sustainable?

Cost to the Florida Taxpayer
There is an estimated 820,000 illegal aliens living in Florida and ‘in state’ and ‘local’ cost to the taxpayer of $5.5 billion. F.A.I.R estimates that they may pay an estimated $261 million in taxes collected by the state, leaving a burden of more than $5.2 billion for Florida taxpayers to absorb.

Sanctuary Cities
The number of Sanctuary Cities and Counties in Florida has exploded to at least twelve. They are:

Broward County
Miami-Dade County
Herano County
Hillsbourgh County
Palm Beach County
Pinellas County
Pasco County
DeLeon Springs
Lake Worth
Sanctuary cities have chosen to protect the illegal immigrant, despite the fact that he could have a criminal history or could be a terrorist that just snuck across the border. What about the protection of the citizens and their families?

What Are Florida Taxpayers Supporting?
Illegal immigration has placed a $3.34 billion burden on the taxpayer for education, $660 million for healthcare, $579 million for law enforcement, $317 million for public assistance, and $568 million for general government services. These figures equate to $5.2 billion (2010), which amounts to $981 per household headed by a U.S. citizen. We must remind those that support open borders that there is an ultimate burden each Florida family must bear and sacrifice for this.

In Florida, natives accounted for most of the increase in the working age population, (16-65), but more than half of the employment gains went to immigrants, (2000-2014). According to Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, (F.L.I.M.E.N.), since the jobs recovery began in 2010, 64% of net employment growth among the state’s working age population has gone to immigrants. While agriculture is important to the state, it employs a tiny share of immigrant workers, less than one percent.

The supply of potential workers in Florida indicates that a half a million native-born college graduates were not working in the first quarter of 2014, as were one million with some college and 1.4 million with no more than a high school education. The labor force participation of black, Hispanic and less educated worker show the biggest declines.

Illegal Alien Crime
In April of 2017, U.S. Customs Enforcement, I.C.E., arrested 73 criminal illegal aliens across Florida. Of those arrested, 57 had criminal records including felonies for such crimes as sexual battery, child sex crimes, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and other weapons and drug violations. According to I.C.E. 2016 records, they conducted 240,255 removals nationwide; 92% of those removed had previously been convicted of a crime. In April, 2016, Miami-Dade authorities announced arrest warrants for 22 people suspected of laundering money for Mexican drug cartel kingpin, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. In March, 2016, Feds arrested 26 suspected MS-13 gang members from the notoriously vicious South American Mara Salvatrucha international gang, seizing narcotics and 150 firearms in Miami-Dade County. The impact of lives lost, crime and narcotic trafficking impacts all Floridians, despite age, gender or income level.

Floridians for Immigration Enforcement
FLIMEN has been actively encouraging E-Verify for all employers in the state of Florida and nationwide, requiring them to confirm the legal status of new hires. By doing so, the job magnet would be squelched and illegal immigration could be curbed. Unfortunately, after years of pushing this mandate, despite the fact that Florida has a Republican governor and legislature, E-Verify still has not be voted on. Perhaps the special interest groups and employers in the state would rather turn a blind eye to the hiring of illegal immigrants over native Floridians.

Illegal immigration may have temporarily slowed down because of President Trump’s mandate to ‘Build The Wall’ on the southern border, however, the impact of illegal immigration has not dissipated, as every taxpayer is still burdened with the ultimate absorption of costs, decline in pay and quality of living as a result of years of illegal border crossings.

Great question. Call Governor Scott’s office and ask them.

As far as I know Governor Scott supports President Trump’s stand on deporting illegal aliens who are criminals. I understand that ICE will be looking at all illegals in the future.

Exclusive: Jihadi Cult Associate Arrested in NY with Firearms Stockpile

This is just one of many terror camps spread out across our country, many sources claim that there are Islamic terror cells in every U.S. state.

By Clarion Project’s Ryan Mauro and Christian Action Network President Martin Mawyer

A long-time associate of a U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), has been arrested in Johnson City, NY. Authorities discovered that he had a large cache of weapons inside a storage locker. A source inside MOA says the weapons were intended for the group’s “Islamberg” headquarters in Hancock, NY.

The suspect, 64-year old Ramadan Abdullah, was previously arrested in 1977 when he and another man tried to rob a candy store in Brooklyn and someone was murdered in the process. When police searched his home, they found enough material to build 50 bombs. In the end, the charges against Abdullah were strangely reduced (see below).

On May 31, Abdullah was arrested after trying to steal four boxes of ammunition from a local Gander Mountain store. When police questioned him about the purpose of the ammo, his answers made them suspicious, and they obtained a search warrant for a storage locker he was renting in the town of Union.

During that search, police found a large assortment of weaponry including:

8 assault weapons
4 loaded handguns
1 loaded shotgun
2 rifles
64 high-capacity ammunition feeding devices
flak jackets
1,000s of rounds of ammunition, including .50-caliber armor-piercing rounds
Searches of other residences linked to Abdullah turned up another loaded handgun, more high-capacity ammunition feeding devices and ammunition, including .38-caliber rounds.

New York State Police Major Jim Barnes would not say whether Abdullah was connected to terrorist groups or any organizations, but confirmed that police believe Abdullah had made trips overseas.

“There’s no indications there was a plan in place to commit an act of violence. However, it begs the question, what was he doing with all this and what were his intentions down the road?” said New York State Police Maj. Jim Barnes.

“It’s just a tremendous blessing to be able to take all these high power weapons and high power ammunition off the streets, and who knows what kind of large scale tragedy that this investigation may have prevented later down the road,” said Johnson City Police Chief Brent Dodge.

Abdullah is currently being held in the Broome County Jail without bail.

Abdullah is a longtime associate of the U.S.-based Islamist cult Muslims of America

(MOA), which has been described as a terrorist organization in documents from the FBI and other agencies. A 2003 file says MOA is linked to terrorists in Pakistan, including Al-Qaeda affiliates.

The group’s headquarters is a 70-acre compound in Hancock, NY called “Islamberg.” It is just a 50-minute drive from where Abdullah was arrested.

MOA is led by a radical cleric in Pakistan named Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, who demands a cultish loyalty from his followers in America. Gilani indoctrinates them to follow a hate-filled extremist ideology that includes violent jihad against perceived enemies of Islam and a belief that they are fulfilling apocalyptic prophecies.

The group has claimed to have 22 “Islamic villages” across the U.S., mostly in rural areas, which have been used as guerilla training compounds. The group also has a history of committing acts of terrorism and crimes including murder, gun smuggling, narcotics trafficking and money laundering.

A 2007 FBI report warns that MOA “possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S.” It says “members of the MOA are encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training from [Sheikh] Gilani.”

Lawyer Ask Appeals Court to Let Him Defend Cliven Bundy in Nevada Case

Former President Obama pardoned a host of ‘Bad Guys’ on his way out the door, including GITMO terrorists, (who went on to join their ISIS jihadi comrades), high level drug dealers, who were involved in international drug trafficking of heroin, cocaine and meth, in addition to other dangerous felons. Unfortunately, he forgot about the Bundy Ranchers who were arrested defending their land, and our American military heroes that are still languishing in U.S. prisons because they allegedly broke Obama’s ‘Rules of Engagement.’ The cowardly rules that the Obama administration incorporated states that our military, in the field of operations, must not shoot the enemy until he shoots first. It is time for the Trump administration to intervene, address these injustices and free these victims.

July 8, 2016 – 11:18 am

Nationally known lawyer Larry Klayman has asked a federal appeals court to overrule a Nevada judge who refused to allow him to defend rancher Cliven Bundy in the Bunkerville standoff case.
In papers filed this week with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Klayman argued that Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro has twice erroneously denied his bid to join Bundy’s defense team, violating Bundy’s constitutional right to a lawyer of his choice.
Klayman and Las Vegas attorney Joel Hansen, who also signed the papers, told the San Francisco-based appeals court that Hansen cannot handle Bundy’s defense alone.
“If Mr. Bundy does not have Mr. Klayman to work with Mr. Hansen, Mr. Bundy will not have an experienced and full defense team with sufficient resources to adequately defend him,” the lawyers wrote.
With Bundy and 18 other defendants facing a Feb. 6 trial before Navarro,“time is ticking,” the lawyers said. Bundy risks life in prison if convicted of felony charges stemming from the April 12, 2014, armed standoff with law enforcement near his Bunkerville ranch.
Navarro has refused to let Klayman into the high-profile case until he can give her proof that “ethical disciplinary proceedings” against him in Washington, D.C., have been resolved in his favor.
But Klayman argued that is an impossible task because those proceedings will not be formally resolved until long after the criminal case against Bundy is over.
Klayman, the founder of the Washington-based public interest groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is known for his tenacious pursuit of litigation, mostly in support of a wide range of conservative and libertarian issues.
His troubles with the Washington bar stemmed from three separate alleged conflicts of interest in litigation involving Judicial Watch after he left the organization as its legal counsel, according to court documents.
Klayman contends Navarro has an “extra-judicial bias and prejudice” against Bundy because she was appointed by President Barack Obama at the recommendation of U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., who has been openly critical of the rancher.
Earlier this year, Navarro refused to get off the criminal case, and Klayman filed a lawsuit in federal court to try to get her removed.

Free Speech in The West on Life Support

June 28, 2017/in Commentary, Policy, Politics, Religion, Social Issues, Waste, Fraud and Abuse /by Ruth Roman

America and Europe are under full frontal assault, but it’s a silent war; attacking every vestige of Free Speech. MSM news outlets have been eerily silent; because they’re supplying the ammunition through their promotion of political correctness.

Americans have, for too long, taken their liberties and the right of freedom of speech for granted. The First Amendment in the Bill of Rights was created by our founding Fathers for the purpose of equipping its populace with all of the freedoms that had been deprived of themselves; that they fought and died for.

Our European counterparts, unfortunately were never granted the same rights and opportunities as delineated in our Bill of Rights, therefore attacks on freedom of speech under the guise of ‘hate speech’ have reached a tipping point.

Recently, German police raided 36 homes over ‘hateful’ Face book posts. The NYT reports that the raid comes as the country debates a new social media law, cracking down on ‘hate speech.’ Prime Minister, Merkel, had previously met with Face book’s Zuckerberg to discuss cracking down on the criticism of Islam on social media and now citizens are being fined for their ‘hateful rhetoric.’ In Europe, at the present, has become illegal to criticize the migrants or Islam, resulting in fines or detainment.

The U.N., Organization of Islamic Conference, a group of 57 Muslim states has been attempting to enforce global blasphemy laws, as delineated in The Istanbul Process, has been working for over 15 years to prevent or limit criticism of Islam and the Prophet.

Now the enforcement of ‘blasphemy laws’ are closer than we would have imagined. Canada, recently detained a Christian, conservative author, lecturer, social media blogger, and Tea Party Patriot, ‘Wild Bill for America;’ and confiscated his I-pad upon arrival at their airport. Wild Bill was on his way to speak at an anti-Islam conference. He was arrested and detained for seven hours, the authorities read his I-Pad, retreated behind closed doors and concluded that he was ‘smuggling hate speech on his I-Pad!’ Therefore, he was arrested for hate speech that he never spoke. His I-Pad was being sent to Ottawa for forensic examination and possible tariff violation. The actions of the Canadian officers clearly were supporting Sharia Law, where there can be no criticism of Islam. Furthermore, their actions set a very dangerous precedent for their citizens and foreigners travelling to Canada. Will their laptops, books and briefcases be confiscated because of their religious or political beliefs based upon suspicion or notoriety?

America has been under censorship for ‘hate speech’ just like our counterparts, but to a lesser degree Face book and Twitter has blocked, shut down or taken posts down when the blogger’s rhetoric was interpreted as being hateful, especially toward Islam. On our universities conservative speakers have been boycotted and shut down by anarchy groups such as Antifa, BLM and Muslim Brotherhood front groups, SJP and MSA. Universities have even created ‘Free Speech Zones’ designed to regulate freedom of speech or expression.

The regulation of Free Speech through legislation is perhaps the most dangerous of all. In April, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious, or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence or animus targeting a minority in the US.” What is disconcerting about this legislation is that it was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmagageUSA, formerly EmergeUSA, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council, MPAC.

Most recently, the House has introduced a bill, H Res. 257, “condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence or animus targeting a minority in the U.S. This bill urges that the DOJ, FBI, Sate Dept. become involved in these efforts, therefore, law enforcement could enforce an alleged criminal act. Could this bill be a precursor to ‘Blasphemy Laws,’ where criticism of Islam could be punishable?

Americans must oppose any legislation that will result in the punishment of Free Speech.

Ruth has done a commendable job, clarifying the emergent threat to freedom of speech in America. Unless we fight this attempt to curtail our freedom to say, comment, criticize and/or condemn speech, we shall soon have no words left. Make it your business to answer all attempts with swift confrontation !!

Are Democrat Politicians in Full Panic Mode and Attacking Themselves?

Democrat leaders must surely be in ‘panic mode’ with the most recent revelations that Loretta Lynch is under investigation for colluding with the Clinton campaign, (we all remember Bill’s rendevous with Lynch on the tarmac, while Hillary was still under investigation for ’email-gate’.) Debbie Wasserman Schultz has called out ex-DHS Chief, Jeh Johnson accusing him of lying under oath when he said the DNC refused the help of the DHS in their hacking scandal. Former F.B.I. Director Comey, has admitted under oath that he leaked a classified memo to a friend at Columbia U., which was leaked to the New York Times. To add insult to injury, now we’ve learned the Senator Bernie Sanders is under F.B.I. investigation for bank fraud, as he allegedly put pressure on bankers to issue a bank loan to his wife, then president of the now defunct Burlington college, while she allegedly submitted false information to them.

The Swamp is also in full panic mode as Zerohedge Blog revealed that the C.I.A., under BHO, issued a $600M contract to Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post, Amazon, and soon to be Whole Foods. He’s one of the chief swamp bullfrogs that has been trying to take down President Trump. Is this another Pay for Play?

The Republicans in the Senate are finally coming out of their catatonic slumber and beginning to investigate suspicious and mind boggling expenditures via government contracts, such as the $43M gas station in Afghanistan built under Obama’s reign. Did anyone else even bid on this?

The Washington Times has reported that over $6B State Dept. funds are unaccounted for under Hillary”s watch.

Now will our MSM ever report any of this? Don’t hold your breath!

New Blasphemy Laws for Canada?

Is Canada now going the way of Europe and now going to begin to punish those who “criticize Islam,” even if there are valid points that it is incompatible with western law? Americans don’t realize how lucky we are, that our Founding Fathers had the foresight to protect freedom of speech in our First Amendment, for if one can not criticize a government or an ideology than he has succumbed to it and must be subservient to it.

The O.I.C., Organization of Islamic Conference in the U.N., has been promoting ‘blasphemy laws’ for the West for years, realizing that this will facilitate their civilization jihad one country at a time.

Americans view the Muslim migrant invasion of Europe and wonder why the civilians of these countries are not speaking up against the Islamic takeover of their nation states.

Perhaps we as Americans don’t realize that they don’t have the privilege of the First Amendment,
and they may be jailed or fined for speaking out against Islam or migrants as it pertains to ‘the criticism of Islam.’ This is true in France, Sweden and other countries.

The Istanbul Process was a conference initiated by Turkey’s Erdogen, facilitated by the O.I.C., which Hillary Clinton attended, which called for Blasphemy Laws, with the support of the global Muslim Brotherhood, which she recognized and supported with her endorsement of Morsi in Egypt. The Clinton Foundation also received funding from Qatar, a major supporting arm for The Brotherhood.

There is no doubt that if Hillary had won this last election, Americans would be also facing a challenge to our right for freedom of speech. As George Washington warned us, ” If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

BY SHABNAM ASSADOLLAHI Thursday, June 15, 2017

Criticizing Islam in Canada should not be illegal or disliking it should not be classified as a phobia. A “phobia” is a type of mental disorder. Isn’t the “Islamophobia” motion, which was unanimously passed by the Canadian government and calls for limiting the rights of Canadians to criticize Islam, contrary to Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms? What is the purpose of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms then?

The definition of Islamophobia from a Google search is “dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.” What exactly has the Parliament of Canada made a motion against? Criticism of Islam? Criticism of Mohammed? Criticism and condemnation of the Islamic State and all Islamic terrorist groups affiliated with radical Islamic ideology? Petitioning against those Canadians who condemn Sharia law? If Canadians criticize Islam or convert from Islam, will they now be considered “Islamophobes” by Canada?

What’s next? Sending Iran and Hamas type morality police to the doorsteps of Canadians critical of Islam, while radical imams in the country continue to spew openly hateful and radical ideas in schools and mosques? What about Canadians who are suspicious of others plotting possible terrorist activities – will they be afraid to report it to authorities in case they are wrong?

The motion (M-103) which the Canadian government recently passed was initiated on June 8, 2016, by Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum. It condemns Islamophobia in “all” forms.

The details of the motion, which was sponsored by a member of parliament from the Liberal party, are extremely sketchy to say the least. The motion states:

“We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to join us in recognizing that extremist individuals do not represent the religion of Islam, and in condemning all forms of Islamophobia.”

It seems that many Western politicians, the mainstream media and our intellectual elites use the term “Islamophobia” without even knowing what is in Islam. There might be a lot of things about which one could be rationally “phobic,” or simply fearful of, in Islam.

For example, political Islam is known to be an ideology that produces Islamist terrorists. Islamic Republic of Iran is a prime example of it.

Since Trudeau Liberals came to power, Canadians have been constantly reminded that to speak negatively about Islam is supposedly acting as a fear-mongering, racist, xenophobic, “Islamophobe.”

Yet, many people are rightfully afraid of harm coming to them from Islamic (sharia law) and radical or political Islam. I am a living example of one who has experienced harm from radical Islam.

I was imprisoned at age 16 by the Iranian regime for simply expressing my disagreement with their policies (which now might be viewed as Islamophobic in Canada). They held me prisoner for 18 months in their notorious Evin Prison; I miraculously escaped the murder and rape I heard about every day in that dark place.

Read Shabnam Asadollahi’s story here

The memories of my imprisonment still haunt me. And the regime’s threats still follow me today in Canada. Therefore, I have a reasonable fear of radical Islam. To call my fear a phobia, an irrational fear, lacks compassion and fails to recognize the true reality of the present danger living close to me once again.

It was reported that the highest commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards recently said they would soon kill all dissidents living abroad. That means I am on their hit list.

People are jittery about radical Islam and sharia law for many justifiable reasons: They look at how sharia is practiced in Saudi Arabia, Iran, by the Islamic State and Nigeria’s Boko Haram.

The Islamic Cairo Declaration of 1990, written as a direct refutation to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, states that all human rights are defined under Islamic sharia law. Therefore, beheading, stoning, flogging, slavery, child marriage, wife-beating, amputations and a woman’s worth considered half of a man’s are all human rights.

Is that what we want for or in Canada? Or in any country?

To those of us who have experienced Islamic Sharia law first-hand, protecting Western values – free speech, common law, equal justice under the law, democratic (“man-made”) governance; individual freedoms, separation of church and state, an independent judiciary, to name just a few – is indeed a cause for concern. Every single one of them is contradicted by Islamic Sharia law or radical Islam.

Why should it be against the law to outspokenly disagree with aspects of a different political ideology, religion or culture? Especially if it outspokenly threatens one’s own?

It is interesting to note that there are no comparable terms for other religions, such as Christianophobia or Judeophobia that define a dislike or prejudice against Christianity, Judaism or the Judeo-Christian worldview.

What is true is that Christians and Jews would never be allowed to call for a similar motion in any Middle Eastern country in the world.

While M-103 has been stirring in our halls of government, there is also another trend sweeping through these same halls to rid the Canadian Charter of obsolete, unconstitutional or redundant laws, thanks to other Liberal MPs.

On Tuesday, June 6, 2017, the liberals unveiled Bill C-51 that would clean up the Canadian Criminal Code. This Bill would remove the outdated blasphemy law that has existed in Canada since 1892. Government feels this would clean up old law that isn’t consistent with freedom of speech and religion in Canada.

Strangely, C-51 and M-103 seem to contradict one another. While M-103 condemns Islamophobia in all forms, including speaking against Islam, C-51 is loosening law to allow anyone to freely express themselves concerning anyone’s religion without fear of reprisal or imprisonment. Will C-51 only apply to every religion except Islam?

“Intolerance of Intolerance” is the de-facto blasphemy law of the secular state. Is the Government of Canada scrapping one blasphemy law, only to replace it with another?

Trump Lists His Demands for the Castro Regime

President Trump, who received overwhelming support from Cuban Americans during his campaign, has kept his promise to them, promoting freedom for the Cuban people and the incarcerated dissidents living under Cuba’s tyrannical communist regime.

June 16, 2017 by Cortney O’Brien

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Vice President Mike Pence and President Trump in Miami, Florida Friday to unveil the White House’s new Cuba policy.

Rubio heaped praise on the president for showing compassion toward the Cuban people, who continue to struggle under the dictatorial leadership of Raul Castro. In multiple conversations the two had since the election, Rubio shared that Trump asked him constantly, “What are we going to do about Cuba?”
Well, the president was on hand to explain just some of the ways he intends to empower the people of Cuba, starting by canceling many of the provisions in the Obama administration’s “one-sided” deal with the Castro regime.

“The Cuban American community has so much love,” Trump said, returning the warm welcome he received when he walked onstage. “I saw that immediately.”
He commended the community for building a vibrant culture in Miami, noting it is “a testament to what a free Cuba can be.”
“With God’s help, a free Cuba is what we will soon achieve,” he added.
President Trump proceeded to do what his predecessor failed to so many times – expose communism for the failure it is.

“Now that I am president we will expose the crimes of the Castro regime,” he promised.
The president listed several demands his administration will be making of Castro. For instance, Trump informed the dictator that they will not be lifting sanctions on Cuba until all political prisoners are free, all parties are legalized, and free elections are scheduled. He also plans to restrict U.S. dollars going to a military that is the cause of the Castro regime, enforce the ban on tourism and embargo. He also demanded that investments “flow directly to the people so they can open private businesses.”
He wasn’t finished. The president demanded that Castro stop harboring fugitives and criminals like Joanne Chesimard, who escaped from prison in 1979 and has been hiding in Cuba ever since gaining political asylum in 1984.

Trump finished his remarks, and went to a nearby table to sign the new contract.
“America will expose the crimes of the Castro regime and stand with the Cuban people in their struggle for freedom,” he said.
This is a good time for a Flashback Friday.
