ACLU sues feds in bid to make Catholic groups provide abortion to illegal immigrants

Fox News: Providing food and shelter to illegal immigrants isn’t enough for federally-funded Catholic organizations, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which is suing the federal government to help ensure the religious organizations provide abortion and contraception to them as well.  

The suit aims to obtain government records related to reproductive healthcare policy for unaccompanied immigrant children in the care of federally funded Catholic agencies, which do not believe in abortion.

“We have heard reports that Catholic bishops are prohibiting Catholic charities from allowing teens in their care to access critical services like contraception and abortion– even if the teenager has been raped on her journey to the United States or in a detention facility,” said ACLU staff attorney Brigitte Amiri.

Almost 60,000 unaccompanied minors illegally crossed over from Mexico border last year. Nearly a third were young girls, and Amiri claims up to 80 percent were victims of sexual assault.

The government contracts with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to care for those children until they can either reunite with a relative or face an immigration hearing. The organization has received $73 million overall from the government- with $10 million coming in to care for unaccompanied minors in 2013 alone.

A letter from the USCCB shows the organization strongly objecting to a regulation proposed by the Obama administration requiring contractors provide abortions to immigrants who have been raped.

“The Catholic Bishops are taking millions of dollars in federal grants- and then imposing their beliefs on this vulnerable population who they are supposed to serve… and that raises serious concerns under the separation of church and state provision in our Constitution,” said Amiri.

But the bishops are hitting back at the ACLU- maintaining they are well within their rights to exercise religious freedom while taking care of the minors.

“For decades, we have provided exemplary services to this vulnerable population without facilitating abortions, and despite ACLU’s extreme assertions to the contrary, the law not only permits our doing so, but protects it,” said Kevin Appleby, Director of the USCCB’s Office of Migration Policy and Public Affairs.

Appleby says instances in which a client under his organization’s care asks for a service contrary to the beliefs of the Church are rare. He insists the USCCB informs the government of a girl’s desire to access reproductive healthcare if the government has legal custody of that child.

“Let’s be clear about the ACLU’s purpose here: ending the productive and successful partnership between the Catholic Church and the federal government on the care and shelter of vulnerable populations. Denying us the freedom to serve betrays the very children the ACLU is purportedly attempting to help,” he told Fox News.

The ACLU is only suing for federal documents on the USCCB’s policies at the moment, but will consider further legal actions depending on what those documents indicate. The government has not yet officially responded to the ACLU’s request.

Just send the illegals to Planned Parenthood; they’d be more than happy to do abortions.

190 U.S. cities are hosts to immigrant “seedlings” to create “a country within a country”

Do you remember my post of March 5, 2015, “Obama’s amnesty: Illegals to take over America by creating ‘a country within a country’,” about a conference phone call by members of Obama’s cabinet hatching a malevolent plan to use millions of illegal “immigrants” to create “a country within a country”?

The plan is called the Task Force on New Americans, according to which millions of migrants would be used as “seedlings” implanted into innocent, unaware “receiving communities” across the United States. Like parasites, the “seedlings” will be nurtured with food, medical care, credit cards, no-interest loans, and Social Security — all provided by taxpayer dupes. When the “seedlings” mature, they will “emerge from the shadows” and take over and supplant the “receiving communities”. (All words between quotation marks are the words of Obama’s Task Force on New Americans.)

Below is a list of  190 cities across America where 318 “affiliates” of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration will act as Refugee Processing Centers. In effect, these cities will be the “receiving communities” to welcome and nurture the “seedlings” that will grow to become “a country within a country.” (Source: U.S. State Dept Refugee Processing Center Affiliate Directory, Nov. 2014)

Note the prevalence of religious charities, especially those of the Catholic and Lutheran Churches, in a collusion of Church and State in this plan to use illegal immigrants and “refugees” from Muslim countries (See “Homeland Security chief says we should ‘give voice to the plight of Muslims’ as Obama administration opens immigration floodgates to Muslims”) to create “a country within a country”.

Tuesday Funny: The Muslim Bookstore

I was walking through the mall, and came upon a Muslim bookstore.

The clerk asked if he could help me.

I asked for a copy of the The Obama Administration’s Immigration Policy Book Regarding Muslims.

The clerk said, “F*ck off! Get out and stay out!”

“Yes”. I said, “That’s the one.”

College students would renounce U.S. citizenship for illegals’ low tuition

illegals demand free stuff

Gabriella Morrongiello reports for The Fiscal Times, April 15, 2015, that illegal immigrants in 22 states are eligible for lower-cost, in-state tuition at public colleges and universities.

22 states that offer lower tuition to illegals

While students residing legally or illegally in states such as California, Texas, Maryland, and Virginia are eligible for in-state tuition, legal immigrants, international students, and U.S. citizens from out of state continue to pay out-of-state tuition, often costing several thousand dollars more.

As an example, at the University of Virginia (UVA), a public institution in Charlottesville which ranked second highest in the nation in 2013, according to Daily Progress, the annual cost of tuition for out-of-state students is $36,720, more than double the in-state tuition rate of $10,016 offered to Virginia residents. Similarly, tuition at the University of Maryland (UMD), a public university in College Park, Md., costs out-of-state students $20,145 more annually. 

Out-of-state students attending UVA and UMD–both of which offer in-state tuition to illegal immigrants–told Campus Reform they would “definitely consider” renouncing their U.S. citizenship to become “undocumented students” eligible for cheaper in-state tuition.

Is Ted Cruz an advocate of a North American Union?

Ted Cruz at Liberty U., March 23, 2015Ted Cruz, joined by wife Heidi and daughters, announces his presidential campaign at Liberty U., March 23, 2015

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) met his wife, Heidi (née Nelson), while working on the George W. Bush presidential campaign of 2000. Heidi Cruz is currently head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman, Sachs & Co. and previously worked in the White House for Condoleezza Rice and in New York as an investment banker for J.P. Morgan. Wikipedia lists Heidi Cruz as an  “investment banker” and a “historical member” of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Heidi Cruz was a member of the CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force on the Future of North America, which was launched in October 2004. The Task Force advocates a greater economic and social integration between Canada, Mexico, and the United States as a North American region.

Comprised of a group of prominent business, political and academic leaders from the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the Task Force was organized and sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations (U.S.), the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, and the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations. It was co-chaired by former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, John Manley, former Finance Minister of Mexico, Pedro Aspe, and former Governor of Massachusetts and Assistant U.S. Attorney General William F. Weld.

Its main publication is the 70-page Task Force Report #53 entitled, Building a North American Community (May 2005). Heidi Cruz is listed as a member of the Task Force (page 9 of the report in PDF) and described as “an energy investment banker with Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas” who “served in the Bush White House under Dr. Condoleezza Rice as the Economic Director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council, as the Director of the Latin America Office at the U.S. Treasury Department, and as Special Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, U.S. Trade Representative.”

Task Force on North America Union members

The Report’s recommendations include (see pp. 7-32 of the Report; pp. 29-54 of the PDF):

1. Establish a common security perimeter by 2010

“The governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States should articulate as their long-term goal a common security perimeter for North America. In particular, the three governments should strive toward a situation in which a terrorist trying to penetrate our borders will have an equally hard time doing so, no matter which country he elects to enter first.”

2. Develop a North American Border Pass

“The three countries should develop a secure North American Border Pass with biometric identifiers. This document would allow its bearers expedited passage through customs, immigration, and airport security throughout the region.”

3. Develop a unified North American border action plan

Specific recommendations under this plan include:

  • “Harmonize visa and asylum regulations, including convergence of the list of “visa waiver’’ countries;
  • Harmonize entry screening and tracking procedures for people, goods, and vessels (including integration of name-based and biometric watch lists);
  • By 2010, “Lay the groundwork for the freer flow of people within North America. The three governments should commit themselves to the long-term goal of dramatically diminishing the need for the current intensity of the governments’ physical control of cross-border traffic, travel, and trade within North America. A long-term goal for a North American border action plan should be . . . the elimination of most controls over the temporary movement of these travelers within North America.

4. Law Enforcement and Military Cooperation

“Security cooperation among the three countries should also extend to cooperation on counterterrorism and law enforcement, which would include the establishment of a trinational threat intelligence center, the development of trinational ballistics and explosives registration, and joint training for law enforcement officials.”

Note: Now I “get” why U.S. police departments are hiring non-US citizens as officers.

5. Spread the Benefits of Economic Development

“NAFTA has transformed Mexico, but it has also deepened and made much more visible the divisions that exist in the country…. The gap in wages has led many Mexicans to travel north in search of higher incomes and better opportunities. For the past three decades, Mexico has been the largest source of legal immigrants to the United States, and Mexican-Americans make increasingly valued and growing contributions to the life of the United States and, through remittances, to their families at home. Mexico is also the leading source of unauthorized migration, with attendant economic and security problems in both countries and untold hardships for Mexican migrants. Over time, the best way to diminish these problems is by promoting better economic opportunities in Mexico.”

Note: In other words, more socialist “spread the wealth”!

6. Establish a Seamless North American Market for Trade

“With tariff barriers virtually eliminated, and the outlines of a North American economy visible, the time has come to take a more comprehensive approach to strengthening the economic prospects for citizens in all three countries. The first step is to encourage convergence in the most-favored-nation tariff rates each partner charges on imports from outside North America. Next, the governments should reduce the remaining nontariff barriers to the flow of goods and services, and address problems arising from charges of price discrimination and subsidization by competitors in North America. Finally, they should coordinate their approach to unfair trade practices by foreign suppliers to the North American market. The ultimate goal should be to create a seamless market for suppliers and consumers throughout North America.

7. Increase Labor Mobility within North America

“To make the most of the impressive pool of skill and talent within North America, the three countries should look beyond the NAFTA visa system. The large volume of undocumented migrants from Mexico within the United States is an urgent matter for those two countries to address. A long-term goal should be to create a ‘North American preference’—new rules that would make it much easier for employees to move and for employers to recruit across national boundaries within the continent…. Canada and the United States should consider eliminating restrictions on labor mobility altogether and work toward solutions that, in the long run, could enable the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico as well.”

Specifics on how to create a North American free flow of labor include:

  • By 2010, streamline immigration and labor mobility rules to “enable citizens of all three countries to work elsewhere in North America with far fewer restrictions than immigrants from other countries.”
  • “Special immigration status should be given to teachers, faculty, and students in the region.”
  • “Move to full labor mobility between Canada and the United States” by “eliminating all remaining barriers to the ability of their citizens to live and work in the other country.”

8. North American Political Institutions

The Task Force recommends the following North American regional political institutions be established:

  1. An annual North American summit meeting.
  2. A North American Advisory Council.
  3. A North American Inter-Parliamentary Group to meet every other year.

In the last part of the Task Force’s report, “Additional and Dissenting Views,” Heidi S. Cruz wrote (pp. 33-34):

“I support the Task Force report and its recommendations aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us—truly the measure of our success. As such, investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed in conjunction with market participants.”

Now you know why, despite his blustering against Obama’s executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in this country, on March 27, 2015, Ted Cruz indicated he “remains open to a path to legal status for undocumented workers.” 

Born in Canada of an American citizen mother and a Cuban father, Ted Cruz held dual Canadian-U.S. citizenship. But it was only when the Dallas Morning News in August 2013 pointed out his dual citizenship that Cruz finally applied to renounce his Canadian citizenship — which meant that in 2012 when Cruz had run for and was elected a U.S. senator, he was a Canadian citizen. On May 14, 2014, Cruz finally ceased being a citizen of Canada. See “Republican Sen. Ted Cruz announces presidential campaign, but is he eligible?

Proverbs 6:12-19

A troublemaker and a villain,
who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
who winks maliciously with his eye,
signals with his feet
and motions with his fingers,
who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
he always stirs up conflict.

Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;
he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.

There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.


Count the details in the description in Proverbs.
It seems our president has scored 100%!

Illegal Aliens Gain Non-Obamacare Health Insurance If Obama’s Executive Action Implemented

illegal

Breitbart: Add non-Obamacare government health insurance to the benefits that foreign nationals currently illegally present in the United States could receive should President Obama’s November 2014 executive action be determined constitutional in the courts.

If implemented, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) would grant legal status to an estimated five million foreign nationals illegally present in the U.S.

“These immigrants are not eligible for health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act [commonly known as Obamacare], but Californians who are granted DACA or DAPA become eligible for comprehensive Medi-Cal coverage under state policy if otherwise eligible based on income,” reads a March joint report from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education. Medi-Cal is California’s form of the federal Medicaid program.

That joint report details the number of potential new DACA and DAPA recipients eligible for Medi-Cal at between approximately 360,000 and 500,000. This reflects the estimate that some 57% of those eligible for DACA or DAPA “lacked private health insurance and had income below the Medi-Cal eligibility threshold in 2013.” However, these are estimates, and the number could be higher or lower depending on a number of variables including estimates of the number of illegal aliens that exist in the state, how many apply for DACA and DAPA, and how many apply for Medi-Cal and meet the criteria.

According to the report, “Approximately half of low-income undocumented Californians are already enrolled in restricted scope Medi-Cal, which covers emergency and pregnancy-related services for undocumented residents under a long-standing federal policy.”

Between 2.2 and 3.2 million “undocumented” aliens are currently illegally present in California according to the joint AC Berkeley-UCLA policy study. Of those, between 1.23 and 1.57 million are estimated to be eligible for either DACA or DAPA.

The study also provided a chart indicating that, as of 2013, only 30% of potential DACA applicants were 18 years old or younger. Another 61% were in the 19-29 range and 9% were 30-44. Approximately 190,000 or 62% of those in California eligible for the first wave of DACA have had their applications approved, the study estimates. The great majority of eligible DAPA recipients are between 30 and 44 at 67%.

The recent decision from Texas Judge Andrew Hanen ordered a halt to implementation of President Obama’s executive action over questions of its constitutionality.

Echoing a recent assertion made by Representative Luis Gutierrez, the joint study pushes the idea that Judge Hanen’s decision will be overturned. However, the study cites “immigration policy experts” in that assertion, then links that reference only to the progressive National Immigration Law Center (NILC), an advocate for legalization of illegally present aliens.

During the Los Angeles stop on Representative Luis Gutierrez’s cross-country DACA/DAPA tour, Saturday, March 21, one woman asked what would happen if her kids got hurt or sick since they are not on Obamacare. AB 60 illegal alien driver license and programs specialist Carlos Leon told the potential DACA/DAPA applicant that “there is insurance available for undocumented individuals and it does not have to be Obamacare.”

Under ‘policy implications,’ the study makes the case that “providing comprehensive coverage will build upon availability of existing federal and state funds,” claiming, “the state’s eligibility policy will also contribute to a healthier California workforce.” The study claims “previous medical expansions,” have been associated with lower death rates and overall general better health. A 2012 study was widely circulated claiming a similar result.

However, multiple other reports correlate Medicaid with lack of sufficient or effective healthcare. The Heritage Foundation reports, “A number of academic studies over the years have illustrated that Medicaid patients have consistently had poor access to care and that Medicaid fails to meet important needs.”

Medicaid expansion is also large part of the plan to extend health insurance under Obamacare, comprising more than half of that new coverage, according to a 2012 Manhattan Institute report.
