Philanthropist Helps Illegal Aliens Go Home

Illegal aliens finding it more and more difficult to live illegally in the United States because of increased enforcement and a sluggish economy are getting some help through a new foundation. Philanthropist Henry Buhl has established the Coalition to Protect American Workers that helps illegal aliens repatriate to their home countries, which in turn, opens up job opportunities for Americans.

The Coalition to Protect American Workers says its less expensive to pay the costs for illegal aliens who want to return home than for the federal government to find them and execute a deportation order.

According to a press release issued by the coalition: "privately funded repatriation can be achieved typically at less than 10 percent of full federal detention and deportation costs. This is a savings to the American taxpayer and affords a more dignified departure from America for the illegal immigrant."

The coalition also says that an amnesty plan similar to the one advocated by Senate leaders last year could potentially put millions of Americans out of work.

The coalition's website allows for individuals to make contributions to the effort and also provides testimonials from illegal aliens who took advantage of the service.

E-Verify vilified as California company fires 260 undocumented workers

In the News - Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Even though E-Verify has been postponed until September of this year, one California company heeded the government’s warning and put all their employees through the verification process.

A Vernon, California food processing and packaging company, Overhill Farms, Inc. fired 260 workers who had given the company fraudulent Social Security numbers. The company found in a recent Internal Revenue Services audit that approximately 260 employees’ social security numbers were invalid.

E-Verify program confirming workers' legal status grows in popularity

In the News - Thursday, May 14, 2009

E-Verify is an effective way to attack the jobs magnet for illegal immigrants, said Roy Beck, executive director of Numbers USA, which favors stricter controls on immigration. Beck said he hoped the increase in funding would result in more employers signing up.

"If there aren't jobs, they stop coming," he said. "We would rather solve the immigration problems not with people wearing uniforms and guns but simply with papers, just running someone through the computer."

Personal pain from the front lines of immigration reform battle

In the News - Wednesday, May 13, 2009

"Margaret Heintz sputtered in frustration.

"There's nothing we can do," the Marshalltown, Iowa, woman said to her daughter, Mona Kilborn, when they talked about their shared point of aggravation -- illegal immigrants.

"Mom, you can do something," Kilborn said. "You can write your congressman. I'll even get you the address."

So in September 2007, the 90-year-old Heintz put pen to paper for her first letter to a politician. Two weeks later, she died at the hands of an illegal immigrant.

"Ironic, isn't it?" Kilborn said. "This one issue, it's changed our lives forever....""

Senator not surprised by illegals bill vote

In the News - Friday, April 3, 2009

Colorado state Sen. Ted Harvey said he wasn't surprised to learn that a key vote on a bill to grant in-state tuition to illegal immigrants had been rescheduled after he went out of town to care for an Alzheimer's-afflicted relative in deteriorating health.

Mr. Harvey, a Republican, had planned to vote against Senate Bill 170 when it came up at the Friday committee hearing. After Mr. Harvey flew to Florida on Tuesday morning, however, Democrats on the Senate Appropriations Committee moved up the vote to Wednesday.

Md. schools forbid illegals head count

In the News - Wednesday, March 25, 2009

"The Maryland State Board of Education on Tuesday said Frederick County officials are prohibited by federal law from seeking a count of how many illegal immigrants are in the county school system....

"What the Supreme Court says is that you cannot deny the public education. The same Supreme Court decision doesn't talk about [the Board of Education's] ability to provide information," Mr. Jenkins said.

Mr. Jenkins said that if the number of illegal immigrants in the school system were known, taxpayers would know more about where their money is going. He also said that if the head count were taken, the county could ask the federal government to help fund the education of those without legal status"

ICE detainees arrive in Grand Island

In the News - Tuesday, December 9, 2008

Tuesday marked the start of housing federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees in the new Hall County Jail.

"We got our first vanload today," Supervisor Scott Arnold said at a county board meeting Tuesday.

He chairs the county's Corrections Steering Committee.

Arnold wasn't certain how many detainees were in a "vanload" and Corrections Director Fred Ruiz had already left Tuesday's county board meeting prior to Arnold providing an update to other supervisors on the ICE contract.
