Blacks (And Whites, Of Course) Displaced In Miami
One likely result of the war with Iraq
will probably be the further glorification of the multicultural,
multiracial America that the architects of the New World Empire
seek to build, with the country's multicultural, multiracial
army held up as a model of what American society can, will and
Jersey borough defies minority hiring order
Bogota, NJ - Local officials have said
they will not comply with a state order to institute an affirmative
action program that was prompted when a treasury inspector last
month found that seven borough contractors did not follow state
laws on hiring minorities. -- The Borough Council unanimously
approved a resolution Thursday night denouncing affirmative action
and stating that "racial preferences constitute and perpetuate
ponders immigration in an era of terrorism
Balancing the economic benefits of a
productive immigrant workforce with security fears about foreign
terrorists was a major point of discussion at a conference last
week at St. Peter's College. -- Throughout history, periods of
increased immigration have always been followed by periods of
general economic prosperity, said Daniel
Griswold of the Cato Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based
clout seen in U.S. Iraq policy
Question: Why are we in Iraq? -- Answer:
The neoconservatives made us do it. -- The buzz in Washington
and beyond has been that President Bush's attack on Iraq came
straight from the playbook of the neoconservatives, a group of
mostly Republican strategists, many of whom have gotten funding
from Milwaukee's Bradley Foundation.
Patrol asleep at the wheel?
Sierra Vista, AZ -- Friday afternoon,
at about 4:30, I spotted a suspected border intruder catching
some shade under the large "Welcome to Sierra Vista"
sign on Buffalo Soldier Trail between Fort Huachuca's Main and
East gates. He was sitting there with his pack and a dirty jug
of water. I immediately used my cell phone to call U.S. Border
Patrol to report the sighting....
driver's licenses for illegal aliens
Once again, state Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los
Angeles, has introduced a
bill (SB 60) to grant California driver's licenses to illegal
immigrants. This bill clearly is designed to reward illegal activity,
much like granting in-state tuition status to illegal immigrants.
No state should ever go down the path of overtly or tacitly rewarding
those who have violated our immigration laws.

drivers policy revised
A state policy that has prevented thousands
of foreigners from getting Illinois driver's licenses since Sept.
11, 2001, will be lifted temporarily by the secretary of state's
office. -- The policy change will allow foreigners with legal
residence papers to apply for licenses by appointment on six
days in April and May.
Daily Times-Call [Very Short-lived
since 9/11, deportation of immigrant cons is spotty
Immigration officials seem to have taken
a get-tough attitude with immigrants convicted of crimes since
being taken under the wing of the Department of Homeland Security.
-- But deportations are still inconsistent at best and might
result in white-collar criminals being forced to leave the country
while violent criminals are allowed to stay.

takes on H-1B visas
...As Congress prepares to reauthorize
the controversial program for another three years in the fall,
foes are calling for safeguards to stop the wholesale replacement
of U.S. workers. They also want the annual cap on H-1Bs to return
to the 65,000 limit established in 1990. The tech industry successfully
lobbied for an expansion to 195,000 in 2000.
Global Strategy Doesn't Impress
Mexico assumed the presidency of the
U.N. Security Council this week and Mexican President Vicente
Fox apparently thought it appropriate to reiterate his rhetoric
against the U.S.-led war in Iraq. --- There can be little doubt
that the Fox policy on the war is driven by some combination
of the president's personal views about how best to foster peace
and a response to Mexican popular opinion against its adversary
Patrol out to lunch?
4/7/03 -- At approximately 9:20 AM, Glenn
Spencer spotted 3 suspected border intruders wearing backpacks

at Naco to report the sighting and there was no answer.
created by lax immigration policies
Nineteen months have passed since 9/11.
Despite the magnitude of that tragedy, the U.S. still hasn't
taken a firm hold on the pitfalls created by lax immigration
policies. -- Shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks, most political
analysts predicted that the U.S. would tighten its immigration
laws and make major strides toward slowing the flow of human
traffic across the northern and southern border.
of Racist Law in Doubt
Tallahassee, Florida -- A state senator said
he might abandon his effort to repeal a defunct Florida law banning
Asian immigrants from owning property because other lawmakers
want to use the opportunity to ban another group of people from
land ownership: illegal aliens.

It's a good thing that Tony Garza, the
new U.S. ambassador to Mexico, is a career politician. His skills
as the former chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission and longtime
confidant of President George W. Bush will come in handy as he
navigates the chilly waters of U.S.-Mexico relations. -- When
Bush took office in early 2001, he proclaimed that no bilateral
relationship was more important than that with Mexico....
State Rep. Pedro Marin: Mexican Agent
According to the federal Foreign Agent Registration
Act, Georgia State
Rep. Pedro Marin appears to fit the legal definition of a
foreign agent and should be registered -- which, of course, he
is not. The following is a letter of mine to the appropriate

acknowledged receipt of my complaint and will only say that it
is under review.

A group of al Qaeda terrorists is attempting
to infiltrate the United States from Mexico to conduct attacks

14 al Qaeda members are said to be in Mexico, said officials
who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The al Qaeda members
are working with Mexican organized crime groups, such as drug-trafficking
organizations, in an attempt to enter the United States covertly,
the officials said.

California may fancy itself as the fifth
largest economy in the world, but when it comes to funding its
