Paul Ryan’s Bill Includes $1.6 BILLION to Resettle Illegal Aliens Inside the US

*Editor’s Note* – Paul Ryan is doing what the Pope told him to do when he told him to accept the job as Speaker of the House. And yet we still refuse to recognize who’s really in charge.

A massive appropriations bill expected to be approved by Congress would provide more than $1.6 billion to resettle illegal immigrants arriving at the U.S. border through 2018.

Public Schools Face Health Threat from Illegal Aliens

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Washington, DC – An unabated influx of illegal aliens along the southern border of the United States is causing a health crisis in the border region. Actions by the Obama Administration to disperse illegals across America while providing an incentive for more illegals to come could lead to a nationwide health crisis that is likely to manifest itself first within our public schools.

Members of the Project 21 black leadership network say President Barack Obama’s support of amnesty for illegal aliens and his 2012 executive memorandum deferring enforcement of immigration law for specific younger illegals encouraged an incoming wave of what the Obama Administration calls “undocumented alien children.”

With them, and the adults traveling alongside, have come communicable diseases.

Federal law subjects legal immigrants to a medical screening process (and even has health safety rules covering the importation of animals). These rules are not being applied to illegal immigrant children.

The federal government is, largely clandestinely, sending these children (some of whom are adults lying about their age) to various U.S. locations and ordering local school districts to allow them to enroll in the public schools.

Project 21 members note any health impact resulting from these federal policies will have a disparate health impact on black children, who are disproportionately likely to attend public schools and also disproportionately likely to live in the public school districts to which the federal government is sending the illegal aliens.

Facts and Figures

• The official visa application process administered by the U.S. Department of State for legal immigrants contains a thorough medical screening process. The Immigration and Nationality Act created medical eligibility requirements that include a review of an applicant’s medical history, a physical exam, chest x-ray and blood test. Applicants must admit to and show treatment for conditions such as tuberculosis, mental illness and drug abuse as well as prove they are vaccinated for multiple diseases including mumps and polio. An inability to do so jeopardizes an application and legal entry into the United States.

• A July 30 memo to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson from DHS Inspector General John Roth about the oversight of “unaccompanied alien children” and children traveling with families found that “[m]any UAC and family units require treatment for communicable diseases, including respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis, chicken pox and scabies.” The report further notes that Border Patrol agents at the Del Rio, Texas facility said they contracted scabies, lice and chicken pox, with at least two officers reporting their children also contracted chicken pox. Agents at other facilities reported exposure to tuberculosis.

• A Border Patrol facility in Artesia, New Mexico was quarantined in July after an outbreak of chicken pox. 40 illegals were quarantined at a Chula Vista, California facility at the same time for scabies and lice. Ron Zermeno, a union representative for Border Patrol agents, told ABC’s 10News in San Diego, California: “I think the public needs to be aware. The average citizens [are not] aware because they could be exposed tomorrow.”

• After reportedly showing signs of sickness for several days, a young illegal immigrant detained at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio was hospitalized in June after being diagnosed with the H1N1 flu virus, which was an international pandemic in 2009. Because the child was not isolated during the contagious stage of the virus, the government rushed 2,000 does of vaccine to Lackland as a precaution. Four other children were diagnosed with the H1N1 virus at two detention facilities in Brownsville, Texas at the same time.

• A draft memo written by Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald Vitiello on May 30, 2014 and obtained by the Associated Press estimated that around 90,000 unaccompanied children may illegally enter the United States during the 2014 fiscal year that ends on September 30, 2014. The trend is expected to cause this number to expand to 142,000 in the 2015 fiscal year. Still more children not counted in that figure arrived with family members. As illegal children are processed, it is the intent of the Office of Refugee Resettlement to release them from government facilities to “to a sponsor, typically a parent or relative, who can care for the child while their immigration case is processed.”

• Illegal immigrant children cannot legally be denied enrollment in public schools under the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the 1982 case of Plyler v. Doe. On May 8, 2014, Obama Administration Attorney General Eric Holder reinforced the Plyler ruling when he said that “[p]ublic school districts have an obligation to enroll students regardless of immigration status” and that the Justice Department will do “everything it can” to ensure compliance. Furthermore, a May 8, 2014 joint letter from the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice to school districts across America warned against any actions that may “chill or discourage the participation, or lead to the exclusion, of students based on their or their parents’ or guardians’ actual or perceived citizenship or immigration status” because such actions “contravene Federal law.”

• In seeking to comply with the Obama Administration mandate on prospective illegal immigrant students, the Virginia Department of Education issued a memo to school district superintendents about enrollment requirements which stated, in part, that schools “cannot exclude from school attendance those homeless children who do not provide the requisite health or immunization information required of other students.” There were 2,856 illegal alien children released into Virginia in the first half of 2014. Prince William County Director of Communication Services Phil Kavits told the Bristow Beat that the suburban Washington, D.C. county has “no number or estimate of registrants related to the recent increase in unaccompanied minors crossing the border” because schools cannot record a child’s immigration status. This combination of factors causes some to fear unvaccinated illegal aliens may be invited into Virginia classrooms.

• The potential for young illegals with communicable diseases could affect schools and the local children as well as their families. This presents a potential disparate impact for black Americans due to the fact that black children disproportionally attend public schools in which young illegals are most likely to be assigned. According to the 2010 American Community Survey data compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau, 93 percent of black boys between the ages of 5 and 19 and 92 percent of black girls in that same age group who were in school were enrolled in public schools. Additionally, illegal alien migration within the United States tends toward major metropolitan cities and, increasingly in recent years, to urban and rural areas in southeastern states — areas which tend to have higher black populations. Dr. Vernon M. Briggs, Jr., of Cornell University wrote in 2010: “…some of the fastest growing immigrant concentrations are now taking place in the urban and rural labor markets of the states of the Southeast — such as Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia… Indeed, about 26 percent of the nation’s foreign-born population are now found in the states of the South… many of these new immigrants in this region are illegal immigrants.”

• The United States and Mexico appear to have a more effective policy for eradicating disease among livestock than with people. The two countries are currently working together to prevent the spread of bovine tuberculosis. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has a five-year strategic plan in conjunction with Mexican authorities to manage the transport of cattle across the border in ways meant to stop the spread of tuberculosis among livestock.

• During the mass immigration of the early 20th century, the Ellis Island processing center in New York had a two-doctor initial screening process for arriving immigrants and a hospital that handled thousands of treatable medical conditions. On average, 20 percent of arrivals were pulled aside for additional screening. Immigrants with incurable conditions at that time such as trachoma (pink eye) were “almost sure to be sent back where [they] came from.” “We were lucky,” said Lillian Guletta, who arrived in 1928, “there were many sent back.” As a result of this screening and treatment process, “[n]o major epidemic was ever traced to an immigrant who entered American after being treated at the [Ellis Island] hospital.”

What Project 21 Members Say About Potential Amnesty and its Effect on Legal Immigration

“Historically, immigrants who legally sought entry to America — such as those through Ellis Island — went through a structured process which allowed them to be checked for communicable diseases. In some cases, those found to present a health risk were quarantined until they no longer proposed a threat. In others, they were sent back to their country of origin… The American population is already at risk with illegals being dropped off at bus stations and being put on commercial airlines. It could potentially escalate this fall if sick children are placed in schools and expose their classmates, teachers and extended families.” — Project 21 member Dr. Elaina George , a board-certified otolaryngologist, in an upcoming New Visions Commentary to be published by Project 21

“‘Ring Around a Rosie’ is a morbid nursery rhyme believed to tell the tale of the Black Death — the bubonic plague that besieged Europe in the 14th century and London in 1665. This plague was carried by humans, rats and fleas. To escape the disease, families moved across Europe in droves and inadvertently carried it with them. In order to slow the plague, countries closed their borders and created strict regulation for the entry of people, food, plants and animals. Illegal immigration across Europe contributed to over 25 million deaths over a five-year period in the 14 century, and many victims were children and the elderly. History shows that unsecured borders pose risks to public health. Latin America is currently dealing with a mysterious epidemic reported to cause chronic renal failure and death that has killed more than 24,000 people in El Salvador and Nicaragua since 2000. It has spread as far north as southern Mexico and south into Panama. Diseases such as this could be carried across our border by illegal immigrants and could create a nationwide health crisis. Chicken pox, measles, mumps and tuberculosis are already causing problems.” — Project 21 member Michael Dozier, Ph.D., an expert in homeland security issues and talk radio host who has worked with humanitarian aid missions in Africa, Asia, the Balkans and the United States

“The Obama Administration’s refusal to properly secure our southern border poses a significant risk to our national security in general and specifically endangers the health and well-being of our children. Illegal immigrant children, possibly with serious communicable diseases, are being allowed to remain in our country and attend school under the guise of compassion. But how compassionate is it to unnecessarily expose American schoolchildren to diseases that have largely been wiped out in this country for a generation? Will children of the elites and liberals enrolled in private schools who advocate for this de facto amnesty be subjected to the same health risks as public school students?” — Project 21 member Christopher Arps , founder of the Move-on-up.org black social networking website

“The complete disregard for public safety displayed by President Obama, with the known threat of deadly diseases coming across the border, is unforgivable when there is an excellent chance of their introduction into our communities. An apparent failure to completely clear illegal alien children medically in the attempt to hastily inject them into communities across the country creates a clear threat to the national security of the United States. With school starting, how many communities are prepared to deal with a potential medical time bomb the likes America has never seen? Many Americans are letting their desire to help these intentionally displaced youth threaten the lives of their own children.” — Project 21 member Carl Pittman , a Marine Corps veteran who has served in law enforcement in California and Texas, and was a candidate for sheriff in Harris County, Texas in 2012

What Others are Saying About Illegal Immigration’s Impact on Legal Immigration

• “The influx of families and unaccompanied children at the border poses many risks, including pubic health threats. As a physician for over 30 years, I am well aware of the dangers infectious diseases pose… Many of the children who are coming across the border also lack basic vaccinations such as those to prevent chicken pox or measles. This makes those Americans that are not vaccinated — and especially young children and the elderly — particularly susceptible… As the unaccompanied children continue to be transported to shelters around the country on commercial airlines and other forms of transportation, I have serious concerns that the diseases carried by these children may begin to spread too rapidly to control. In fact, …some of these diseases have no known cure.” — U.S. Representative Phil Gingrey, M.D. of Georgia

• “The [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]’s own guidelines are clearly being violated with regards to illegal immigrants currently crossing the border… It’s not who we are as a nation to break our own laws and give preference to those who do.” — Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, former director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

• “We are sending people everywhere. The average person doesn’t know what’s going on down there… We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA, staph infections. We are starting to see different viruses… It’s contagious; we are transporting people to different parts of the state [of Texas] and different parts of the country… Just the fact we are exposed to it, and so is everyone here in south Texas, it’s a great concern to us.” — Chris Cabrera, Border Patrol agent

• “Americans should be told that diseases long eradicated in this country — tuberculosis, leprosy, polio, for example — and other extremely contagious diseases have been linked directly to illegals… This emerging crisis exposes the upside-down thinking of federal immigration policy… While legal immigrants must undergo health screening prior to entering the U.S., illegal immigrants far more likely to be carrying contagious diseases are crawling under that safeguard and going undetected until they infect extraordinary numbers of American residents.” — Former U.S. Representative J.D. Hayworth of Arizona

• “Because illegal immigrants, unlike those who are legally admitted for permanent residence, undergo no medical screening to assure that they are not bearing contagious diseases, the rapidly swelling population of illegal aliens in our country has also set off a resurgence of contagious diseases that had been totally or nearly eradicated by our public health system. According to Dr. Lawrence Nickey, director of the El Paso health district, ‘Contagious diseases that are generally considered to have been controlled in the United States are readily evident along that border.’… The problem, however, is not confined to the border region, as illegal immigrants have rapidly spread across the country into many new economic sectors such as food processing, construction and hospitality services.” — Federation for American Immigration Reform

Influx of Illegal Immigrant Children Likely to Strain Public Schools

Washington, DC – Each of the tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border who remains in this country is legally entitled to a free public education. If President Obama allows large numbers of illegal alien children to remain in the United States, the public schools will have to manage an unforeseen and possibly unmanageable influx of new foreign children as early as this fall.

This may have a profound impact on public school students – an impact that will disproportionately fall on black and lower-income students, as they are disproportionately likely to attend public schools.

Facts and Figures

• A draft memo written by Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald Vitiello on May 30, 2014 and obtained by the Associated Press estimated that approximately 90,000 unaccompanied children may illegally enter the United States during the 2014 fiscal year that ends on September 30 and this number is expected to expand to 142,000 in 2015. Still more children not counted in that figure arrived with family members. Illegal immigrant children and American-born children of illegal immigrants comprised an estimated 6.8 percent of the enrollment of American primary and secondary schools in March 2008.

• Harmful effects related to expanding class sizes and additional costs and strained resources related to enrolling a sudden large influx of illegal alien children will likely have a disparate impact on black students because they are overwhelmingly more likely to be enrolled in public schools. According to 2010 American Community Survey data compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau, 93 percent of black boys between the ages of 5 and 19 and 92 percent of black girls in that same age group who were in school were enrolled in public schools.

• Illegal immigrant children cannot legally be denied enrollment in public schools under the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the 1982 case of Plyler v. Doe. In that case, a group of students who came to the United States from Mexico sued a Texas school district that sought to make students unable to prove their citizenship or legal immigration status pay tuition. The Court ruled that denying undocumented children the same public school benefits of citizens and legal immigrants violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Furthermore, senior lawyers in the Obama Administration believe exclusion of illegal immigrant children constitutes discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin prohibited by the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

• On May 8, 2014, Obama Administration Attorney General Eric Holder reinforced the U.S. Supreme Court’s decades-old ruling to protecting the unfettered enrollment of illegal immigrant children when he said “[p]ublic school districts have an obligation to enroll students regardless of immigration status and without discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin.” He further said the Justice Department will do “everything it can” to ensure schools comply with his demand.

• Also on May 8, 2014, school districts nationwide received a policy directive on immigrant enrollment in the form of a “Dear Colleague” letter signed by Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights Catherine E. Lhamon, Department of Education Deputy General Counsel Philip E. Rosenfelt and Acting Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Jocelyn Samuels. This letter warned against any actions that may “chill or discourage the participation, or lead to the exclusion, of students based on their or their parents’ or guardians’ actual or perceived citizenship or immigration status” because such actions “contravene Federal law.” In particular, administrators were informed children could not be denied enrollment if they could not or would not present a birth certificate or could or would not provide a Social Security number (proof of residency within a school district boundaries is a valid question that may be asked). “Precipitous drops in the enrollment of any group of students in a district or school,” the letter warned,” may signal that there are barriers to their attendance that you should further investigate.”

• The nation’s two largest teachers unions endorse smaller class sizes. The American Federation of Teachers “strong[ly] advocates for reducing class size to help raise student achievement, especially in high-poverty, at-risk schools” of between 15 and 19 students per class. The National Education Association similarly “supports a class size of 15 students in the earliest grades of regular school programs and even smaller classes in programs for students with exceptional needs.”

• While the federal government reports that the national pupil-to-teacher average was 16-1 in 2010, this can be misleading as a measure for urban areas or more populous states. For example, the 2011-2012 average class size for grades K-3 in the state of California was 22.2, and was 23.9 for the same grades in New York City. An unplanned increase of students into schools without budgets for or plans to hire new teachers means classroom sizes will inevitably increase.

What Project 21 Members Say About Amnesty’s Impact on Public Schools

• “While we discuss the ability of illegal immigrants to obtain a free education in the United States, citizens of this country are going to jail for sending their children to better school districts that they don’t have the legal right to access due to residency laws. The sad irony is that American mothers being criminalized for wanting better schools for their kids are black and they pay taxes. Illegal immigrants do not. Also disturbing is the idea that school district officials aren’t permitted to even inquire about legal status. This has prompted an enormous influx, for example, in schools in Atlanta, Georgia. An influx that will be paid for by, you guessed it, taxpayers. Should the educational needs of children here illegally take precedence over taxpaying citizens? Of course not. But I’m not making the rules here. President Obama is, and his priorities are clearly misplaced.” – Project 21 member Stacy Washington, a mother, former school board member and St. Louis radio talk show host

• “Is the Obama Administration’s reaction to the migrant child crisis knee-jerk or part of a larger plan? While it may seem politically correct and humanitarian to allow these children to cross the border and assimilate into our health and educational systems, the inevitable overload on our entitlement system has not been dealt with. There’s already been an inability to test for certain communicable diseases in refugee centers, increasing the risk of a health crisis. Now, even though our educational systems are already overloaded and class sizes exploding, the Obama Administration is requiring schools to accept migrant children and make matters worse. And he is doing this to the detriment of teachers whose unions ironically supported him so strongly. The only preparation the White House seems to offer schools is a fact sheet and a letter stating their obligation to comply. These pieces of paper are not quite as intangible as a speech, but they still miss the mark in terms of prepping schools to handle this overload.” – Project 21 member Hughey Newsome, a financial analyst and parent

• “Teachers unions like to call the children of illegal immigration ‘dreamers’ and want to extend all the benefits of our educational system to them. But they are going to create a nightmare for their membership when teachers are suddenly faced with increased class sizes they already say are too large and are forced to do more with resources they say are already stretched past their limits. Teachers who are members of these unions should ask their leaders why they are willing to let this happen to them and why President Obama did this to the unions who supported him so strongly in the past.” – Project 21 spokesman Kevin Martin, an environmental contractor and the son of a retired public school teacher

• “As someone who spent two years teaching at a public charter school in Washington, D.C., I can attest to the demands and hardship that comes with an underfunded and overcrowded classroom. While I don’t fault anyone for wanting to come to America to seek a better life, the problem posed by the current wave of humanity illegally coming across our borders is problematic and unsustainable. It creates an unfair situation for native-born students and immigrants who are here legally, teachers, lawmakers who must set budgets and taxpayers who must pay for those budgets. Dumping illegal immigrant children on our public schools with no recourse is a bad reaction to a bad problem.” – Project 21 member Bishop Council Nedd II , the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Missionary Church

What Others Are Saying about the Impact of Illegal Immigrant School Enrollment

In many school districts across the nation, officials are unsure how they will deal with additional burdens expected by new illegal immigrant enrollees:

• In Lynn, Massachusetts, Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy, whose city schools already have experienced 600 new foreign-born admissions (including 126 known illegal immigrants) told the local Boston Fox network affiliate that “it’s gotten to the point where the school system is overwhelmed, our health department is overwhelmed, the city’s budget is being… altered in order of accommodate all of these admissions in the school department.” After her comments were published, over 100 people protested outside the mayor’s office, claiming she was making illegal immigrant children “scapegoats.”

• National Review Online reported that immigrant persons older than school age are seeking to enroll in the public schools in Lynn, Massachusetts. In one case, an enrollee was reported between 30-35 years old. A potential security risk arose when a foreign-born applicant used an arrest warrant as proof of identification. School officials report that adult foreign-born students created disruptions in the past by taking extended unexcused absences believed to be related to the acquisition of seasonal work.

• At least 2,200 new potential students have already arrived in Maryland, posing many questions to school administrators beyond where to put them. Frances Negron of the National School Board Association told USA Today: “We don’t know the[ir] educational background, if they’ve even been to school, the language issue and operational issues that could raise costs.”

• Miami-Dade County Public Schools reports spending $1,959 more per child for immigrant children and is reliant on community partnerships and emergency funding to deal with unexpected influxes of foreign students. It has already asked for more federal aid to meet expected demand (the district spent an average of $8,512 per student in 2012). An exact request for funding is virtually impossible because, as spokesman Daisy Gonzalez-Diego explained, “[w]e don’t know how many more are coming this upcoming school year because Central American children usually enroll just two or three weeks before the school year begins.”

• The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimated that the 2014 fiscal burden of illegal immigration on California taxpayers related to education is $12.3 billion for children in K-12 schools. With regard to California’s expenses for illegal immigrant children and children born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents, Lance T. Izumi, senior director of education studies at the Pacific Research Institute, wrote: “No one can deny that increasing numbers of children of illegal immigrants attend public schools in the United States and that U.S. taxpayers pay the costs. Those sympathetic to illegal immigration tend to remain silent about these costs, while illegal-immigration opponents often fall short on specifics. In the interest of more informed discourse, here are the numbers… The actual cost of schooling these children could be higher because many education dollars are earmarked for special purposes. At the federal level, Title I funds are sent to schools to support disadvantaged children, which benefits many children of illegal immigrants. In California, the state’s Economic Impact Aid program provides tax dollars to fund English-language acquisition, which aids children of illegal immigrants. Capital costs for school construction may have increased at a higher rate because of the influx of children of illegal immigrants.”

• Delaware Governor Jack Markell (D) said on July 24 that there were already at least 117 illegal immigrant children relocated to that state, but that the federal government will not release any information on their locations. In Delaware’s Indian River School District, Sussex Central High School had 70 new students enroll last year who did not speak English, something that principal Jay Owens told DelmarvaNow followed “no rhyme or reason, we just saw an influx.” School districts there get their funding based on student enrollment as of September 30, and IRSD board member Donald Hattier worried, “This is going to cost us an arm and a leg… I think they’re going to load us up.”

Obama’s Meager Efforts to Fix Immigration Crisis Criticized by Black Activists

Tiny Deportation Effort Just Doesn’t Cut It

“This is What Happens When Commonsense Principles and Practices are Ignored Because of Racial Guilt and Racial Politics”

Washington, DC – Helluva job, Mr. President!

With the Obama Administration taking a bow for arranging for the deportation of approximately 40 Honduran illegal aliens, members of the Project 21 black leadership network point out this number is infinitesimal in addressing the “urgent humanitarian situation” the White House allowed to erupt. They also point out the unchecked influx of illegal immigrants is a clear and present danger to the wellbeing of the President’s black supporters.

“The few dozen illegal aliens the government did deport barely matter in the grand scope of things when 90,000 illegal alien children alone are expected to surge across the border by the end of the summer,” said Project 21’s Kevin Martin. “For every illegal alien who crosses the border, it means potentially one less job for a black American now or in the future. Unfortunately, this is what can be expected from progressive policies seemingly rooted more in calculated political gain and nothing more. And, in this case, his calculations are wrong.”

The approximately 40 Honduran illegal aliens who were just flown back to Honduras were held at a facility in Artesia, New Mexico created to house approximately 400 people. Only ten percent of that one small facility were deported. According to estimates made by the Obama Administration, over 90,000 children alone are expected to enter the U.S. illegally by the end of September.

Project 21’s Martin added: “President Obama’s brand of politics has done more harm than good for black America over the past six years as our community has borne the brunt of the recession and a mostly jobless recovery in which black youth unemployment lingers over 30 percent. Now we must deal with this influx of illegal alien children and others. It’s time for blacks who supported Obama to see the writing on the wall: he doesn’t care about their concerns and must believe they won’t desert him. This could be the final insult.”

According to Fox News interviews with several illegal aliens, their motivation for coming to American is rooted in a belief that the Obama Administration — having promoted amnesty and using executive power to order selective enforcement of immigration law — will allow those who cross the border to stay in the United States.

“This is what happens when commonsense principles and practices are ignored because of racial guilt and racial politics,” said Project 21’s Charles Butler. “With this crisis on the border, Americans are coming together to demand that we take control of our country back from the advocates of illegal immigration and other failed liberal policies.”

“The President’s obsession with granting amnesty for over 11 million illegal immigrants may be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Black communities across America are saying ‘enough’ to the neglect this administration has shown them,” said Michael Dozier, another Project 21 member. “Sending 40 people back across the border while thousands walk in the opposite direction is the equivalent of putting a Band-Aid on an arterial bleed. This farce is an attempt to play to the emotions of his supporters. But black Americans are waking up. They are tired of being placed on the back burner while the President uses his pen and phone on issues that are a detriment to their community.”

In 2014, Project 21 members have been interviewed or cited by the media over 800 times — including TVOne, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Fox News Channel, Westwood One, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, SiriusXM satellite radio and 50,000-watt talk radio stations such as WBZ-Boston and KDKA-Pittsburgh — on issues that include civil rights, entitlement programs, the economy, race preferences, education and corporate social responsibility.

Two Az Ranchers Invite Pelosi To Visit Ranches and See Real Illegal Immigration

From Fox News:

“Two Arizona ranchers want Congress to wake up to the dangers of the growing illegal immigration crisis along the southwest border, and they’re inviting House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to take a tour along the porous border their ranches straddle with Mexico.

Ranchers Fred Davis and John Ladd have been outspoken in the past about the hardships their communities have endured with increased illegal immigration flow along the nation’s roughly 2,000-mile southern border. They say lawmakers like Pelosi — who visited a detention facility in Brownsville, Texas, earlier this month to see the conditions of some of the thousands of children who have crossed — have no clue about how dangerous the situation has become.

“I want to invite Nancy Pelosi down,” Ladd said in a video invitation, first obtained by TheBlaze. His ranch in Naco, Arizona, has been in his family since 1892. “She went to Texas to see the kids. So come here and see where the dope and bad guys are coming through the border.”

The ranchers said they will pay for Pelosi’s plane ticket and invite her to stay with their families on the ranch so they can give her a firsthand tour.”<<<Read More>>>
