Q) What should Pres. Trump do about the latest Caravan of thousands of Central American Migrants headed to the US?
A) Tell him to close the U.S. Border with Mexico! Use Dept. of Defense funding to build border barrier! Refuse
and DACA or other Amnesty deals for funding!
White House comment line: 202-456-1111
Tweet President Trump: @realDonaldTrump
1) Stop illegal aliens from crossing the US Border
2) Support complete enforcement of US immigration laws; and
3) No More Amnesties! (Including any so-called foreign national DREAMER DACA Amnesty deals. Why? Because history demonstrates any Amnesty encourages more illegal migration.
4) Encourage the President to reduce the number of Mexican Consulates in the US by 1/2. Much of the activity of these consulates is to lobby for changes in US policy to aid Mexican nationals illegally in the U.S.
President Trump and former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions have reversed some of Obama's damaging immigration policies. But many remain substantially unchanged. For example:
1. Enforcement has expanded but continues to be too limited in scope.
2. Obama's PEP program is still in operation, limiting enforcement generally to only a small population of illegal aliens. Although it is important to remove the worst criminal aliens, there must be consistent enforcement applied to ALL illegal aliens if enforcement is to be a deterrent.
3. According to Judicial Watch (JW), in 2018, unaccompanied minors from Latin and Central America still continue to illegally enter the US. JW reported that DHS is also still transporting these illegal aliens (some of whom may work for the drug cartels) at taxpayer expense on commercial flights into the interior of the U.S. This has encouraged even more Central Americans and others from around the world to ignore our immigration laws and enter the US without permission or examination as required by law.
4. The number of U.S. cities providing some level of sanctuary for illegal aliens is now over 500. View the Sanctuary Cities List here.
5. After a temporary reduction in illegal migrant crossings, the flow of new illegal alien arrivals has returned to the levels that occurred during the Obama administration.
6. Mexico continues to allow Mexican and other foreign migrants from Central America (and elsewhere) to illegally enter the U.S. via the US/Mexican border.
What will President Trump's U.S. Immigration Policy look like in 2019 now the DACA Amnesty Bills died in 2018?
President Trump's comments regarding US immigration policy prior to his election and post election at times seemed to vacillate over time. Most of candidate Trump's comments about U.S. immigration policy were supportive of strong immigration law enforcement. Most of Trump's comments as President have also supportive enforcement. Confusing matters were candidate Trump and President Trump's comments at times in favor of "comprehensive immigration reform" (a.k.a. amnesty), especially for the so-called "DREAMers."
Trump's amnesty comments were troubling since the devastating consequences of the 1986 illegal alien amnesty continue to haunt our nation today. (The public was told that the 1986 Amnesty was to be the last amnesty because the federal government would start enforcing immigration laws. But the promise of enforcement was a lie, and the amnesty encouraged millions of additional illegal aliens to enter the U.S.--waiting for Congress to pass the next amnesty.)
As President, Trump released a 70 point immigration enforcement plan in 2017. Unfortunately much of that plan is still waiting for implementation. That could be because the Trump administration spent the first half of 2018 attempting to pass some enforcement measures but at the cost of an ill-advised so-called illegal alien DREAMER amnesty.
A recent report estimated that the total number of eligible illegal aliens for the Trump supported DREAMer Amnesty is over 3 million. If those 3+ million illegal aliens receive permanent residency status or U.S. citizenship, they would then be able to submit visa petitions with USCIS on behalf of certain relatives, some of which would have an immediate right to apply for permanent legal resident status (PLR). This is how any DREAMer amnesty would result in additional chain migration of millions of additional aliens. A majority of these aliens would likely be dependant on U.S. taxpayer funded social services for the remainder of their lives.
Luckily we were able to kill these amnesty bills. But Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is already planning to push for another bill giving DACA illegal aliens Amnesty.
President Trump had promised victims' families and the nation that he would rescind Pres. Obama's DACA program on day one of his election. He did not keep his promise. This controversial and likely unconstitutional program established by the Obama administration was supported by Trump until a number of state attorney generals threatened to sue to end the program. To avoid a court battle, the Trump administration partially rescind the program with a proposed 6 month termination schedule.
Under Trump's modified DACA program, illegal alien recipients (which reportedly number over 800,000), got to keep their temporary protective status, including work privileges and social security numbers for at least two years. Rather than being subject to deportation, illegal aliens in the DACA program continued to remain in the US and campaign for amnesty for themselves and others.
However, tin January 2018, the Northern California US District Court issued a preliminary injunction ordering that the DACA program not be rescinded. Litigation over the constitutionality of the DACA program continues in the federal court system after the U.S. Supreme court refused to grant the government's petition for certiorari before judgment. The petition would have allowed the lawsuit to bypass the lower appellate courts and be heard directly by the US Supreme Court.
President Trump may be finally done negotiating a DACA deal with Democratic leaders, since they refused to support any amnesty deal that included enforcement provisions. The President has also been irritated by Mexico's failure to prevent illegal aliens from using its border to enter the US. The President already requested and got National Guard troops activated for duty on the U.S. and Mexico border in early 2018. The National Guard troops however have no authority to directly enforce U.S. immigration laws. Their primary function is to support the US Border Patrol. In October 2018, President Trump has reportedly is having 5,000 regular military servicemen and women placed on the US southern border to help the US Border Patrol address the so-called Honduran alien "caravans" headed to the US border.
In addition to beefing up U.S. border and interior immigration enforcement, the State Department needs to use its influence and leverage to move Mexico and other foreign governments to stem the flow of migrants and improve the quality of life for their citizens. If they don't, the U.S. may have no choice but to use more drastic measures to achieve compliance.
2019 offers the administration a new year to make advances in all areas of immigration law enforcement. Although we all need to keep pressuring the administration to keep its promises regarding U.S. immigration law enforcement, we need to take into consideration that rebuilding the enforcement mechanisms destroyed by prior administrations is not going to happen overnight, especially with member of the "resist" movement in the bureaucracies that the administration relies on to implement policy.

Illegal Aliens break up thousands of American families every year...by killing them.
A vigil held for Grant Ronnebeck, 21, by family and friends. Grant was murdered by an illegal alien who wanted to steal a pack of cigarettes. Who is actually responsible for breaking up families?
Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) wants to be president?
We don't mean to put words into U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown's mouth...but Senator Brown should have as much compassion for American citizens as he has for illegal aliens.
Millions of American families are devastated by the criminal acts of illegal aliens. Crimes such as identity theft, job theft--leaving Ohio workers unemployed, drug trafficking, and murder, are all too common.
Has Senator Brown sponsored even one bill to crackdown on illegal immigration during his many years in office? No. In fact, Senator Brown has voted against legislation that would stop illegal immigration. Brown has instead supported granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
Yes, justice should be tempered with compassion. But when compassion is one-sided and American victims are left to fend for themselves, it's just wrong!

Seventeen years after September 11th...
Thousands of Americans Continue to be Killed and Injured by Illegal Aliens.
Yet Churches, Public Officials & "Social Justice" Groups Remain silent!
It has been nearly 17 years since September 11, 2001. Too many U.S. public officials continue to oppose common sense measures to protect the U.S. border and conduct aggressive interior immigration enforcement. Voters demonstrated their frustration with the disastrous immigration policies of the Obama administration and candidate Hillary Clinton's promise to continue down the same destructive path.
Hillary Clinton openly supported a massive amnesty policy and other open-border policies that would have continued the erosion of U.S. sovereignty and encouraged an even greater flow of illegal aliens, illegal narcotics, and terrorists into our villages, cities, counties and states.
President Trump uniquely supported immigration law enforcement during his campaign, although at times in vague terms. Mr. Trump clearly said that illegal alien criminals will be deported if he was elected. That's good but what about the other 10-15 million illegal aliens in the US who violated U.S. immigration laws (and perhaps other criminal statutes but have not been caught and prosecuted)?
After reading President Trump's Executive Orders regarding border and interior enforcement, I was cautiously optimistic that ALL illegal aliens will be subject to potential detention and deportation. However the President recently has flip-flopped on DACA and has encouraged Congress to pass an illegal alien DREAMER Amnesty. The Trump administration has also continued President Obama's Priority Enforcement Program policy which excludes most illegal aliens from likely enforcement action. That being said, a positive is that federal immigration agents have seemingly have been given more authority to determine if an illegal alien should be placed into deportation proceedings.
It's a good bet that President Trump will do much more to enforce US immigration laws than Hillary Clinton. President Trump is already facing massive opposition from progressive Democrats, establishment Republicans, one-world government globalists, and numerous and well funded open-border non-profits groups.
Let's encourage the President to keep his campaign promises and drop any talk of amnesty and expose the lies of the open-border lobby.
What can you do?
Call the U.S. Capitol toll free:
1. YES to Immigration Law Enforcement and timely deportation of immigration law violators.
2. YES to the immediate repatriation of any foreign national that has violated U.S. immigration laws. This is the "attrition by enforcement" policy. (When illegal foreign nationals understand that the US will enforce its immigration laws, unauthorized aliens will leave on their own, "self-deport," rather than wait for inevitable incarceration and deportation.)
3. YES to mandatory E-Verify.
4. YES to legislation that cuts federal funds for Sanctuary Cities violating federal immigration laws.
5. NO Amnesty for any foreign national that has violated U.S. immigration laws!
6. NO to the resettlement of illegal aliens in the U.S. or their reclassification as "refugees."
7. NO additional resettlement of potentially dangerous "refugees" in our communities.

50 reasons why ending illegal immigration would be good for you and the USA!
House Speaker, Paul Ryan, has a record of supporting Amnesty and likely will attempt to pass an Amnesty at soon as he has the votes.
Please continue to call Ryan's office AND more importantly, your members of Congress. Demand that Congress put the heat on the Republican leadership to not only shelve any plans to pass amnesty but also support President-elect Trump's efforts to enforce U.S. immigration laws, including a crackdown on sanctuary cities.
Actions you can take now:
1) Go to the local Congressional district office to oppose Amnesty (sample script below).
2) Ask if your Congressperson has scheduled any town-hall meetings in your area. If so, go to the meeting and ask your representative to oppose Amnesty and demand that immigration laws be enforced.
3) Call your Congressperson's Washington D.C. office--tell the staffer that you are a district voter and support aggressive immigration law enforcement and oppose ANY form of Amnesty!
4) Write letters to the editors for local, state, and national newspapers.
5) Call talk-radio shows.
6) Make yourself a pro-enforcement/no amnesty sign with poster board and markers. Place it in your yard or hold it at a busy intersection in your town.

When someone says they support "comprehensive immigration reform," what does that mean?
"Comprehensive immigration reform" = AMNESTY
AMNESTY = "Comprehensive immigration reform"
It doesn't mean change...it means the same failed 1986 amnesty legislation that became law and made a bad problem worse--increasing illegal immigration from 3 to over 12 million (actually closer to 20 million +) and costing thousands of American lives and trillions in tax dollars.

I wrote the below commentary 10 years ago...but it is still relevant today...with billions in additional taxpayer expense!
Stealing from American Families
Costs of granting U.S. birthright citizenship to children of illegal aliens:
Survey concludes that 320,000 children born in the U.S. had illegal alien parents in 2008
OJJPAC note: The cost to U.S. taxpayers just for K-12 education for 320,000 U.S. born children is approximately $38.4 billion dollars!
The additional cost of educating the millions of children brought illegally into the U.S. by their parents takes away billions of dollars more from American families who are already facing hard financial times. Is this situation unfair and unjust? Yes--which is why the public demands enforcement of our immigration laws.
Calculation process: Average cost per pupil is roughly $10,000 per year multiplied by 12 years (K-12th grade) = $120,000 x 320,000 students = $38.4 billion.
The Islamic Center of Cleveland
The controversial Council on American Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Ohio Chapter sponsored an interfaith Ramadan dinner July 28,2012 at the Islamic Center of Cleveland. The keynote speaker was Saeed A. Kahn, a professor at Wayne State University. Kahn teaches several courses, including Islamic and Middle History, Islamic civilizations, and History of Islamic Political Thought according to the program.
Controversy over CAIR became public when it was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal government case against a U.S. based Islamic charity called The Holy Land Foundation of Relief & Development. An appeals court later ruled that the government should not have made some of the information about CAIR and others public.
A federal investigation alleged that the Holy Land Foundation was raising money for Hamas, which had been designated as a terrorist organization in 1995.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provided testimony that there was a relationship between the founders of CAIR, CAIR, and an organization called the Palestinian Committee. The Palestinian Committee the FBI maintained, via seized documents, was connected to Hamas.
The Islamic Center of Cleveland is also no stranger to controversy. It's former Imam, Imam Fawas Damra, a Palestinian immigrant, was deported to the West Bank in 2007 after he was found guilty of concealing his ties to terrorist groups when he filed his application to emigrate to the U.S.
According to CAIR's Mission statement, CAIR's purpose is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

Another Illegal Alien Suspect In Hazleton, PA Murder
By Steve Salvi
Hazleton, PA-- A drive into Hazleton treats the town visitor to spectacular views of Pennsylvania's mountain landscapes. Unfortunately, the streets of Hazleton are less tranquil according to long-time residents dismayed by increasing crime--punctuated by reports of last weeks murder of Cesar Robles.
One resident directed me to the intersection of Green and Wyoming, in which he stated four people have been murdered there over the past few years.
Another life-long resident said that Hazleton used to be a great place to raise a family until the "infiltrators" [illegal aliens] began to move to Hazleton during the 1990's and kept coming--resulting in an increase in gang activity, illegal narcotics trafficking, and crime. Story to be continued...

Mayor to Congressman, Barletta continues fight for Hazleton's citizens
By Steve Salvi, OJJPAC.org
Mayor Louis J. Barletta believes that the United States is the greatest nation on Earth and is a place where people's dreams can come true--and he wants to keep it that way.
As mayor of Hazleton, a small city in Pennsylvania, Barletta had first-hand knowledge of the numerous problems that illegal migration brought to local communities.
While Barletta welcomed legal immigrants to Hazleton, he witnessed illegal aliens taking advantage of his community by draining resources, displacing native workers, and engaging in criminal activities--including illegal drugs and murder.
In order to maintain the quality of life that residents in Hazleton had grown to expect, the mayor supported city ordinances that would make it more difficult for illegal aliens to settle in Hazleton.
With Mayor Barletta's support, the City of Hazleton passed two ordinances. Ordinance 2006-13, known as the Rental Registration Ordinance, which requires renters to apply for an occupancy permit and include proof of legal residency. Ordinance 2006-18, known as the Illegal Immigration Relief Act, prohibits persons or businesses in Hazleton from harboring or employing illegal aliens.
However, soon after the ordinances were passed, they were challenged in federal court by the ACLU of Pennsylvania (and its Immigrants' Rights Project), the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Community Justice Project, Cozen O'Connor, and several area attorneys.
The plaintiffs' argued that the city was violating the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution and peoples' due process and equal protection rights.
In July, 2007, District Court Judge James Munley ruled that Hazleton's two ordinances were unconstitutional and issued a restraining order prohibiting the city from enforcing the ordinances.
The city of Hazleton responded by appealing Judge Munley's decision in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. Barletta also established a legal defense fund to help collecting private donations to defray the city's mounting legal bills.
In September, 2010, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals upheld District Court Judge Munley's decision, citing a number of constitutional problems with the ordinances--including that Hazleton's ordinances would preempt federal law--specifically the Immigration Reform and Control Act and the Immigration and Nationality Act.
Not surprised that the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the lower District Court, Barletta maintained the the ordinances were constitutional and promised to appeal the 3rd Circuit Court's order.
U.S. Supreme Court Vacates Order
In June, 2011, soon after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a similar case to Hazelton's ( U.S. Chamber of Commerce vs. Whiting), the Court vacated and remanded the 3rd Circuit Appellate Court's decision against Hazleton.
In August, 2011, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals vacated its Hazleton decision. The Appellate Court will now review updated briefs by those parties supporting and opposing Hazleton's ordinances and set a date for oral argument prior to releasing another decision.
Six year ago... 8-4-11 Jobs Protest: Fresh Mark, Inc.
by Steve Salvi, Founder, Ohio Jobs & Justice
Salem, Ohio -- Citizens concerned with the fairness of the hiring practices of a large meat processing plant in Salem, Ohio, rallied outside the plant's gate with signs and banners Wednesday. The protest was sponsored by the Ohio Valley Tea Party and the Campaign for Liberty.
Former and current employees at Fresh Mark, Inc., allege that Fresh Mark is increasingly hiring Mexican and Guatemalan labor rather than American workers from Columbiana and surrounding counties.
A call to Fresh Mark's corporate office requesting statistics on the makeup of the Salem plant's labor force was not returned.
One current worker (who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of losing his job), estimated that Hispanic workers comprise 50% percent of first shift workers; with even a larger percentage of Mexican and Guatemalan workers' working second and third shifts at the Salem plant.
According to census figures, Hispanics comprise only 0.6% percent of the population in Salem and 1.17% in Columbiana County, Ohio.
If the whistleblower's statistics are accurate, it begs the question why the Fresh Mark workforce does not even remotely reflect the racial/ethnic makeup of the community and region.
Salem's residents appear to agree with that something is wrong at the Fresh Mark plant--as
almost every passing vehicle had someone waving, beeping their
horn in support, or giving
a thumbs-up gesture to the protesting citizens.
The most disturbing allegation made by several different people at the protest was that Hispanic children also work at the plant. One current employee of Fresh Mark stated that he has spoken to a Hispanic worker who admitted to being 15-years-old. It was alleged by another person that when regulators visit the plant, some of the workers are hidden away until they leave.
According to a recent news article in the Salem News, a Fresh Mark spokesperson stated that its hiring practices are in full compliance with federal law and that it uses the E-Verify program to screen new hires for authorization to work in the United States.
However, a recent government sponsored report concluded that the E-Verify program fails to identify over half of illegal alien workers because they are using stolen valid Social Security numbers.

The Tequila Party
Hispanic/Latino ethnocentric groups have become so frustrated with the Democratic Party's failure to pass an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens (the majority of which are Hispanic/Latino) they have been contemplating the formation of their own ethnic political party. Read story here. A May, 2011 Christian Science Monitor story indicates that supporters of the Tequila Party concept are already organizing for the 2012 presidential election.
The truth behind the failure of Democrats to fulfill the quid pro quo bid for Latino votes is that the American public overwhelmingly oppose rewarding people who broke U.S. law with amnesty and citizenship. Unlike Hispanic/Latino cultures where corruption is rampant and the rule of law does not exist, Americans overwhelmingly understand and support the rule of law. The Democrats in Congress as a result could not get the votes in Congress to pass an amnesty.
How corrupt are Hispanic/Latino nations?

Charges are pending against two other Mexicans, Jose Vilchiz-Garcia, 27, and Lusiano Garcia-Sanchez, 25.

Will U.S. Congress act on many immigration enforcement bills?
By Steve Salvi
Washington, D.C.--Although the budget impasse has been getting most of the media attention lately, other bills are being introduced in Congress too. A number of immigration enforcement bills have been introduced, including Duncan Hunter's HR 1134 that would defund "sanctuary cities;" the LEAVE Act; HR 704 a/k/a the Security & Fairness Enhancement for America Act of 2011 (SAFE); HR 100 a/k/a the CLEAR Act; HR 800 a/k/a/ E-Law Act which would mandate the use of the E-Verify program; HR 140 which addresses the "anchor baby" birthright citizenship issue; and many more.
Illegal alien friendly House Democrats and Republicans will find it difficult to stop some enforcement legislation from passing because of the size of the Republican caucus in the House. (Hopefully new House Speaker John Boehner who has shown little interest in immigration enforcement during his time in congress won't interfere.) The U.S. Senate presents a greater challenge since Democrats still control that chamber. However, some enforcement legislation may be palatable (and politically expedient) enough to strip off sufficient votes from Senate Democrats to pass. Perhaps a mandatory E-Verify bill fits that description. It can be argued that the E-Verify program is cost effective to businesses, errs in favor of the applicant, and helps maintain a legal workforce--and primarily protects low income wage earners who (in my opinion) are most likely to be displaced by illegal foreign workers.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement Programs:
A little know fact regarding the U.S. Selective Service System:
Illegal aliens must register!
From the Selective Service System website:
ATTENTION, UNDOCUMENTED MALES
Selective Service does not collect any information which would indicate whether or not you are undocumented. You want to protect yourself for future U.S. citizenship and other government benefits and programs by registering with Selective Service. Do it today.
If you are a man ages 18 through 25 and living in the U.S., then you must register with Selective Service. Itís the law. According to law, a man must register with Selective Service within 30 days of his 18th birthday. Selective Service will accept late registrations but not after a man has reached age 26. You may be denied benefits or a job if you have not registered. You can register at any U.S. Post Office and do not need a social security number. When you do obtain a social security number, let Selective Service know. Provide a copy of your new social security number card; being sure to include your complete name, date of birth, Selective Service registration number, and current mailing address; and mail to the Selective Service System, P.O. Box 94636, Palatine, IL 60094-4636.
Celebrating U.S. Cultural Diversity Series:
Female Genital Mutilation
Questions for your cultural diversity study group: Since many Ethiopian immigrants living in the U.S. continue to quietly practice their culture of female genital mutilation in the shadows of our communities, should Congress make female mutilation legal so immigrants can have the ritual cutting, stitching, and binding performed in hospitals? Should Medicare, Medicaid, or other taxpayer funded program pay for the procedure if an immigrant family is too poor to pay for the surgery? Discuss.
|With the unprecedented influx of millions of
legal and illegal immigrants into the United States, many new and diverse cultural practices are being celebrated
in our communities across the United States. One new practice is female
The U.S. Department of State reports that in Ethiopia, it is culturally encouraged to mutilate a female's genitals. In fact, in a study of 65 of the country's 80 ethnic groups, over 70% of the female population had some form of female genital mutilation. The practice also take place in 27 other African countries. Many immigrants continue the mutilation practice in the U.S.
Here is one female genital mutilation cultural practice: Type III
Type III is the excision (removal) of part or all of the external genitalia (clitoris, labia minora and labia majora) and stitching or narrowing of the vaginal opening, leaving a very small opening, about the size of a matchstick, to allow for the flow of urine and menstrual blood. The girl or woman's legs are then bound together from the hip to the ankle so she remains immobile for approximately 40 days to allow for the formation of scar tissue. [OJJPAC note: In the U.S. we call this torture, for them it's a normal behavior.]

Get educated about Fusion Centers!
The fusion centers need to be monitored to make sure they are not fed false reports by the SPLC, MALDF, LULAC, and ACLU, with the purpose to discredit American patriot groups who support enforcement of existing immigration laws as well as other issues which are supported by the majority of the U.S. public. It's not comforting to know that Ohio's discredited former public safety director under former Governor Strickland had been a key member of Ohio's fusion center.

Millions of Illegal aliens having babies in U.S. to obtain U.S. citizenship
OJJPAC position (generally): The citizenship of a child should not be based on the nation in which the child is born. A child's citizenship should be based on the citizenship of the parents.
Q) Why do mainstream media outlets continually exaggerate the importance of the so-called Latino vote? Here is an example.
A) The media hopes to encourage non-Latino voters (the vast majority of the electorate) to accept as inevitable, eventual Hispanic control of the USA. Therefore, in order to gain favor with our future masters, it is wise to join them in supporting amnesty for millions of illegal alien Latinos.
The reality: Latinos as a group are of minor importance in comparison to the non-Latino vote.

Troubled Shore Bank update:
Shore Bank Corp. to become Urban Partnership Bank
OJJPAC note: Something continues to stink at the Chicago shore--and it may involve millions of your tax dollars. Could it be that Obama's old Chicago gang is "shoring-up" its Shore Bank cronies with more federal funds? Does Shore Bank have the intension of continuing its failed lending and operational policies--just under a different name? Urban Partnership Bank? Why don't they just call it "Social Justice Bank?"
Previous OJJPAC article about Shore bank (see below):
More mischief from Obama's Chicago gang:
While other so-called journalists and investigative reporters sleep...
See the videos on the Chicago Daily Observer (better than reading the top link which is the unofficial transcript of this video.)
Faltering Shore Bank (with numerous ties to Obama's Chicago gang) allegedly got $35 million in stimulus funds
It appears that Obama and his supporters are using "green" policy, the federal treasury, and non profits, to create schemes to enrich themselves and at the same time push their socialist agenda. That would explain why so many of Obama's supporters were telling the American people that the earth was overheating. Climategate took much of the wind out their hysterical predictions as the public learned that the climate data used to back their claims had been fudged by now discredited scientists. ~ Steve Salvi, Founder, OJJPAC.org

Woman to be lashed for not wearing a headscarf in a photograph and stoned for adultery

Questions for your cultural diversity study group:
Should U.S. public and corporate diversity programs support and protect the cultural practice of Iranian immigrants regarding women wearing headscarves for photographs? Should the U.S. Congress legislate special provisions allowing Iranian immigrants to stone people if they commit adultery since it is their custom?
If the U.S. fails to allow Iranian immigrants to to punish people according to their law or customs, does that make the U.S. intolerant to other cultures or perhaps racist?
How does the Iranian culture benefit Americans? (Please list five examples how Iranian culture contributes to our great melting pot.)
If diversity is our goal, should the U.S. embrace Iranian culture and adopt their criminal penal code which would greatly diversify punishment options and acts that would be classified as crimes? Why or why not? Explain.
With the unprecedented influx of millions of legal and illegal immigrants into the United States, many new and diverse cultural practices are now being "celebrated" in the United States.
Iranians for example have strict rules regarding the wearing of headscarves and adultery. One woman reportedly got a sentence of 99 lashes for her "indecency" for getting photographed without her headscarf. The same woman was sentenced to dealth by stoning for adultery.
The death sentence has reportedly been suspended due to international political pressure on the Iranian government.
