How Low Can You Go? Amnesty Advocates Shamelessly Embellish on a Tragedy for Political Gain



The suicide of 18-year-old Joaquin Luna in Mission, Texas, over the Thanksgiving holiday, is a sad and senseless tragedy. Exploiting the suicide of a teenager for political gain is shameful. Embellishing on what a distraught young man wrote in his suicide note in order to create a martyr for you cause is nothing short of reprehensible. Yet, that is precisely what illegal alien advocacy groups, and even a member of Congress, have done since Luna took his own life. They and others have claimed in the media and the halls of Congress that Luna, who was an illegal alien, committed suicide out of despair over Congress’s failure to pass the DREAM Act.

Groups like the Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights, a strident pro-amnesty group based in Los Angeles, seized on Luna’s death to demand passage of the DREAM Act. Rep. Rubén Hinojosa, who represents the Texas district where Luna lived, took to the floor of the House to present his “Urge Support for the DREAM Act – Honor the Life of Joaquin Luna.” Other groups have joined the effort to represent Luna as a martyr for their cause.

Except that Luna’s 11-page suicide note did not mention the DREAM Act – a fact that has in no way dampened the effort by amnesty groups to exploit his death. It is impossible to fully comprehend the suicide of an 18-year-old, but as best Joaquin Luna could explain it to us and his family, it was not because Congress failed to pass the DREAM Act.

Clearly the limits on what he could accomplish in the United States as an illegal alien added to his sense of desperation. Even opponents of the DREAM Act empathize with the situation that Luna and many like him find themselves. Whenever anyone takes his own life, questions need to be asked. In this case, the first question must be posed to his parents: Mr. & Mrs. Luna, wasn’t it obvious to you that when you consciously broke the law and brought your young son to this country illegally that you were creating an untenable situation for him? It’s a question that millions of parents who have acted in the same way as the Lunas should contemplate.

    Since this is the spot for posting your personal feelings…these are mine-when a parent brings their child or children into this country with them as they are committing a crime that is known to the Health and Human Services as a Child Protective Crime. If we, as citizens of the U.S., were to take our children along on a crime spree we would be arressted for child endangerment, possible (more probable actually) for child neglect and various other laws that are in place to supposedly protect children. Although it seems that the illegal immigrants can break the ;aw here with their children without having to pay for their crimes as us citizens do. Just the same as us, as citizens, having to carry identification at all times in case the police choose to ask us to show it to them, obviously another law that the illegals don’t have to follow. I live the Central San Joaquin Valley of California in a small town of around 20,000 people of which I believe at least 60-80% of the residents are illegals. I find it to be odd that the farmers complain about needing a guest worker program considering how many men in the 20-30s I see wandering around and hanging out during the day here in all months, including summer when the produce is thriving and these men are well dressed, drive new cars and don’t seem to be employed by anything legal, so what are theydoing? Selling drugs, transporting drugs, being supported by their girlfriends or wives who are collecting welfare for their many children and the fact (and it is the truth) that the women who come here illegally and have children who become immediate citizens (on the taxpayers dime) don’t have to work, oh my, because they are illegal and can’t be forced to seek employment, yet they can collect welfare money, foodstamps and medical on all their children (which is now called Welfare to Work?), yet if a citizen mother refuses to work while collecting welfare to work funds whe will be immediately santioned and have to go practically jump through hoops of fire to get aid from the welfare to work program and if the father of the children is known he will be extremely penalized, etc. for not helping to raise his own children. The District Attorneys offices now are the collection agencies for this money and only around pennies on the dollar go to the billl owed and the childrens welfare (current). Yet with all the money we spend to hold our own citizens down when an illegal alien breaks the law they are released to break the law again, including the child support and child welfare laws. Mexican men haven’t the balls to step up to the plate and take care of their own offspring leaving it up to the welfare system to raise their children that are born here and to take advantage of the kindness of those who donate money to help chldren and families in church groups are spending major funds and being defrauding by these deadbeat parents who refuse to raise their own children). So, lay blame on the Dream Act, sure lie some more to us, we must like we keep falling for it and reelecting the same liars who refuse to enforce the immigration laws we have in place and to give breaks to legal folks who aren’t working right now and may need a break for a while on their student loans or those who work for low wages in a public service related job, such as my husband who is a Substance Abuse Counselor and woes student loans that we can barely afford to pay, yet he helps just as many people as a minority school teacher who gets a breaks on their loans for teaching at a school that is mostly mexican. Yet there are those who want to pay for these illegal kids to go to school here from our tax dollars when it is the responsibility of their own country Mexico to educate their own children and citizens. Maybe we need to start charging Mexcio for all the money that is being spent to educate, feed, clothe, encarcerate, and everything else. The one thing that we definitely need not do is blame ourselves and ourfellow citizens for any problems that an illegal immigrant may have caused themselves or their children when they decided to break the law and come here without the proper legal way to do it. Nothing anyone can tell me will make me feel guilty for something that someone else did to themselves or their own child by choice of their own.

    What about the millions of young American citizens who are in despair because they cannot find work because the jobs they need are being held illegally by illegal aliens? What about the future of those Americans in a country that is constantly being flooded with foreign labor to drive down wages and drive Americans into unemployment?

    How about we just ENFORCE OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS and send them home.

    And on another note…

    It should be noted and tallied how many children of citizens commit suicide because of the tension in schools where their classmates will not speak English and are violent and hostile toward them.

    GOV DICK LAMM of COLORADO ON BILINGUAL AMERICA BY LA RAZA SUPREMACIST:

    “Here is how they do it,” Lamm said: “First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-li”ngual and bicultural country.”

    *
    COLORADO’S GOV DICK LAMM ( COLOARDO IS NOW 20% LA RAZA)

    DICK LAMM, GOVERNOR OF COLORADO
    Thoughts on the LA RAZA Invasion
    We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia,” explaining how immigration – both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

    Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, “If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy! America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'”

    “Here is how they do it,” Lamm said: “First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-li”ngual and bicultural country.” History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.” Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.”

    Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, “Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and
    discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

    Third, “We could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we! are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.” Lamm said, “I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have
    various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.”

    “Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.”

    “My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all
    minority failure on the majority population.”

    “My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. “E. Pluribus Unum” — From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.”

    “Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the! doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

    In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said,. “Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’s book “Mexifornia.” His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America. deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”

    There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.

    Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America – take note of California and other states – to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”

    Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

      I applaud Govenor Lamm for jolting the audience into opening their eyes.

      I believe we need to make it a law that public schools, welfare benifits, jobs, etc. are ONLY available to citizens.

      We need to demand PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP before providing public services of any nature.

    It is indeed tragic that this young man Luna killied himself in despair, when he ABSOLUTELY NEEDED TO SELF-DEPORT to his nation or another nation that actually has the generous ability to recieve him. This country is in denied financial ruin through social -progressivist recklessness. Because of that, there simply IS NO PLACE HERE for hospitality-based opportunity for foriegn nationals. Charity begins first at home. My home, and your home too, if you are a citizen or priviliged as an invited green card holder.

    I say we should get our immigration laws enforced so that this never happens again. Maybe had the illegal alien parents had taken their son back to Mexico for an education, he would still be alive today. This is sad and we MUST get our immigration laws ENFORCED!

    Did you know On October 21st, President Obama allowed the first Mexican trucks to cross our border at Texas. I cannot tell how angry we are about this betrayal! The agreement covertly signed by Transportation Secretary LaHood in Mexico City is a big anti-jobs program. Todd Spencer, executive VP of the Independent Drivers Association, said 100,000 American trucking jobs will be lost. The Mexican trucks were immediately granted “Permanent Operating Authority,” which unbelievably means Mexican trucks, will not be inspected at the border every time they cross. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that all Mexican trucks participating in this project will be “given” Electronic On-Board Recorders equipped with global positioning capabilities and paid for by the U.S. taxpayers. FMCSA also stated U.S. trucks must install similar equipment at their own expense. Unbelievably U.S. taxpayers are forced to pay for the cost of replacing old mufflers on the Mexican trucks at a cost of $1,600 each. U.S. truckers must buy their own mufflers. Large trucking firms may be able to absorb the cost, but independent truckers will be hit hard. If they can’t afford to buy compliant rigs, they will have to stop operation. Obama is playing favoritism at American expense! It’s also Obama’s policy to donate our tax dollars for the Mexican trucks. Our 15 trillion dollar debt is no obstacle to his generosity with our tax dollars. The U.S-Mexico agreement forces us to accept Mexican commercial driver licenses, but Mexico has no real system of licensing, training, drug testing, or medical requirements, or safety inspection or brake standards. Mexico can’t produce records of drivers’ accidents or drug or alcohol use, or a truck’s record of brake safety. The agreement doesn’t even require the drivers to be proficient in English. This is the way the Obama administration creates jobs for 15 million unemployed American citizens… I call it betrayal!

    The main stream media covered up this fact, covered up the fact that Obama who supposedly has a laser-like focus on job creation gave to Mexicans & Mexico 100,000 American jobs. That should have been a headline story.

      I concur. Unfortunately McCain, Gingrich, Perry all seem to have more sympathy for illegal aliens than unemployed US Citizens. No one for President in 2012 it seems…no one I would like to support in any event.

        This is a tragedy in so many aspects. It means that our politicians have sold out the American public, workers and tax payers. They have acquiesced US sovereignty to Mexico. So get busy Americans and learn Spanish we have been overthrown with a indirect attack on America. The US will never be the same again with a foreign entity and their puppets in Washington in charge . I see no leader on either of the political spectrum that cares about this issue. While they sit and twiddle their thumbs we Americans suffer this invasion that is destroying so much of he fabric of America. Never before has one country been so successful in their plan to invade America. What next – a Drug Cartel in our government? It could happen!

    • avatar

      Obama has continued to give away jobs, Mexican trucks that pass the DOT safety checks should be allowed only as far as a border state terminus then reloaded for Mexico, and in my view the same for the Canadian trucks. why do the American people worry more about foreigners than their own people when it comes to jobs, Maybe its the greed that comes with taking what the other Countries have after saying things like, isn’t NAFTA great. when only some benefit from it more have been hurt by it here.

    What about the people who have been long time unemployed American citizens who commit suicide because they can’t find a job because the job poaching illegal aliens stole their job.. It’s My DREAM that all illegal leave the country. I know who the real victims are, it’s we American citizens. Illegal aliens are nothing but economic terrorists.

      Don’t ever expect that the main stream press will ever print those stories of depressed American workers as it works against the idea that these illegal alien criminals are just here for a better life, and the American citizen is nothing, but a selfish bunch of people who don’t want to share what wealth we have. This Countries people have been bailing Mexico, in fact the whole 3rd world for 70 years enough is enough.

    Daniel L. Skillman on

    I think it is extremely sad that a young man took his life because he couldn’t get handed a free ride to support his illegal existence in our country. The only thing sadder than that is the vultures and leeches who will feed off of his deplorable, self-inflicted fate in order to advance their own personal, politcal, twisted, illegal, immoral agendas. I don’t think you can get any lower than that. How can these people call themselves responsible adults or even human beings? Of course, to call themselves anything else would be an insult to that group because only human beings could be so reprehensibly callous and indecent as to try and use such an incident to springboard their goals.

      You are kidding aren’t you? No one cares about this huge problem in Washington and never will if you look at the politicians agendas. Huge corporations that remain here on American soil could care less. Why should they – they are in the French Riviera enjoying the good life. They enjoy “saving” all those poor little people that work for them. They never gave one thought about the massive layoffs of American workers when they exited our country for greener pastures of other countries. Sorry you masses that need work, you have no one in Washington that cares about you. They are busy feathering their nests and those of low skilled illegal and legal immigrants. SORRY CHARLIE is the message from Washington. You must make the sacrifice. Our tax dollars are gone. Yet those pro amnesty groups make points out of a tragedy not of our making.

    Mexican Drug War: U.S. Accused Of Laundering Drug Cartel Money

    The Huffington Post Gabriel Lerner First Posted: 12/ 6/11 07:22 AM ET Updated: 12/ 6/11 07:22 AM ET

    In the beginning there was Fast and Furious, a botched operation carried by the Phoenix office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) between 2009 and 2010, where officials at the federal agency encouraged gun shops to sell up to 1,725 assault rifles and other weapons destined for Mexican drug cartels.
    In Mexico, some of the weapons were used in murders. The feds said they were using the gun runners to track down ranking members of the drug cartels and other criminal enterprises.
    The revelation prompted, first, a wave of denials and bitter accusations within the government; then, a series of investigations and an admission of wrongdoing by Attorney General Eric Holder.
    Now, it’s happened again: the federal government, in its rush to help Mexico fight the drug cartels, toed the line separating legal and illegal. This time, according to an investigation by Ginger Thompson in the New York Times, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) members “laundered or smuggled millions of dollars in drug proceeds.”

    James Jay Carafano: The administration’s secure-the-border trap
    By: James Carafano
    Examiner Columnist
    August 22, 2010
    When the public clamors for action to curb illegal immigration, politicians push the “easy button.” They mobilize the National Guard and send them to the border.
    It’s a time-honored tradition, though not always efficacious.
    For example, in 1916, Poncho Villa launched a series of cross-border raids into the U.S. In response, we sent a few thousand troops under the command of Blackjack Pershing to hunt down the bandits.
    It cost U.S. taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars a day. Pershing never captured Villa. And, on several occasions, the Army got its butt kicked. On June 21, 1916, the Mexican Army almost completely wiped out a detachment of the 10th U.S. Cavalry at Carrizal.
    Most U.S. troops were withdrawn by 1917. They returned to the border in the 1920s. Ultimately, border violence subsided, not so much due to the U.S. troop presence, but because the revolutionary ardor wracking Mexico had finally run its course.
    Recently, President Obama ordered the National Guard back to the border. And Congress rushed to pass another border bill before sprinting off for summer recess. This frenzy of activity reflects a desire to be seen as “doing something” more than a calculated, serious response to our border security problems.
    For several years, Republicans have chanted a “secure the border first” mantra. It allowed them to look tough on the illegal immigration issue while dodging the issue of “comprehensive” reform. It’s a bad strategy. It suggests that, if the Obama administration overcomes the “border first” problem, it will be clear sailing for a push for amnesty.
    The administration knows an opportunity when it sees one. Hence we saw Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano trot out the “border has never been more secure” argument in congressional testimony earlier this year. However, as violence on the Mexican side of the border continues to escalate, the administration’s “secure border” argument isn’t gaining traction — even among congressional Democrats.
    So now the White House is on a different tack: Throwing money at the problem. Far too many Republicans as well as Democrats are comfortable with that approach — even when it promises to accomplish little. But, in the end, unfocused spending on the border may give the administration an excuse to push through a massive amnesty.
    At some point, after shoveling huge sums of money into low-value border security gambits, pro-amnesty politicians will throw up their hands. “We tried,” they’ll say, “but we just can’t secure the border without amnesty.”
    Whether progress is made on the border or not, the real problem is that any strategy for reducing illegal immigration that includes amnesty is bound to fail. Granting a general amnesty will just encourage another wave of illegal border crossing. That is exactly what happened when the 1986 amnesty bill was passed. And that is exactly what will happen if Washington does it again.
    But waiting until we get the border right before doing anything else to reform immigration policy makes no sense either.
    Securing the border requires solving larger problems. It means working with Mexico to bust the cartels, enforcing our immigration and workplace laws, creating effective temporary-worker programs, and rejecting amnesty once and for all. And, of course, it requires better and more cost-effective border security.
    Washington can’t solve the problem of illegal immigration without tackling all aspects of the problem. Simply pounding the table and chanting “border first” is not just inadequate; it puts us on the short road to a general amnesty.

    THERE ARE MORE MEX GANG MURDERS IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY ALONE THAN THE ENTIRE MURDER RATE FOR THE E.U.!
    MEXICANS ARE THE MOST VIOLENT CULTURE IN THE HEMISPHERE!
    YOU CAN’T PICK UP A NEW PAPER IN CALIFORNIA, AND NOT READ ABOUT ONE MORE MEX GANG COLD BLOODED MURDER, OR RAPE.
    WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE?
    IN SALINAS CA, A TOWN OF ONLY 150,000 PEOPLE, THERE HAVE BEEN THREE DOZEN GANG MURDERS IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS!
    WE CAN’T END THE MEX ASSAULT ON OUR STATE, FLAG, LANGUAGE, JOB, ECONOMY AND CULTURE UNTIL WE RID OURSELVES OF THE LA RAZA PARTY MEMBERS AND THE LA RAZA FASCIST FOR MEX SUPREMACY!

      We may get rid of Holder, but it will come at the loss of the life USBP officer Brian Perry, that was too much to pay for someone like Holder.

    American voters must be among the most ignorant voters in the world. They keep voting in Republicans or Democrats who are bank rolled by the same elite who have been tag-team raping them for years.

    They can’t see that the same 1% who rape them are the same 1% who rape the undocument­ed.

    Failed immigratio­n is created and designed by the elite who run both government­s. This is no different than failed mortgages, failed health care, loss of jobs, and our failing economy. This insidious 1% causes these failures because they profit at the expense of both the US taxpayers and the Mexican undocument­ed.

    Are American voters really so propagandi­zed that they can’t figure out why not one single U.S. politician criticizes the Mexican government for anything? The undocument­ed would not come or stay here if that filthy, corrupt co-trading partner of the American elite would take care of its own citizens. The majority of undocument­ed care deeply about their families and would stay at home if they could make a decent living wage working with their families.

    Its about bi-nationa­l drug profits, trade, oil, remittance­s, the privatizat­ion of prisons, cheap labor, weapons profit, NAFTA, and a 40 year long political platform that only sways back and forth, and never forward.

    I invite OWS to embrace the undocument­ed who are protesting­. Shame on both these pitiful government­s who fail to address the immigratio­n nightmare that they profit from.

      Shove that word undocumented up your rear you need to use the proper words to describe the cancer that has been illegally invading this Country for years. They are illegal aliens, immigrants,tourists, no matter what you call them, but they don’t belong here ever as they are criminals who have broken US Laws of immigration, and should never be allowed here again even to visit.

    This Boy clearly had deeper issues than anyone knew (including his own family).
    The parents must ask themselves how they could have missed the distressed teenagers mental state.

    This issue has NOTHING to do with the so called (Dream Act).
    A tragic event to be sure. But the Pro-Illegal crowd should back off of this one.
