Taking a stand, Editorial, Toledo Blade, 7-29-10  

OJJPAC Note:  The Blade once again attacks the mayor of Toledo for not joining other political nitwits in supporting amnesty for illegal aliens (they call it "comprehensive immigration reform").  Although I think there are much stronger reasons to vote against the Resolution sponsored by an ethnocentric member of city council, he never-the-less voted appropriately--killing this foolish resolution.  Toledo needs to return to a rule of law pathway if it wants to recapture any part of its past economic glory--not create a pathway of illegality for its growing numbers of illegal aliens.

These two Ohio Sheriffs have backbone!  While so many public officials are a sleep at the switch, Ohio's own Sheriff Richard K. Jones and Sheriff Daniel W. Beck are taking progressive steps to fight illegal alien crime in their communities.  We hope that Ohio's other 86 county sheriffs take similar actions to protect American jobs, lives, and taxpayer dollars.  Click here for photos and story:    Findlay Rally story and photos!

 

 IFCO Systems Executives Should Have Listened to OJJPAC

OJJPAC warned business execs that they might end up in prison if they continued their corrupt ways and ignored federal law and kept hiring illegal aliens.

According to news reports, some executives at IFCO Systems (with facilities in Ohio), were arrested this week for allegedly hiring over 1,100 illegal aliens.  The IFCO executives face significant jail time (10 years) and stiff fines ($250,000) if convicted.

If Ohio's public officials (Democrats and Republicans) don't wake up and pay attention, they will feel the wrath of Ohio voters.  Voters want public officials to stop pandering to foreign nationals, illegally in the US, who are attempting to manipulate America's immigration policy and elections.

OJJPAC vs. CORRUPT MEXICAN GOVERNMENT

OJJPAC Testifies Against the Mexican Matricula Consular Card

Vote Stopped, Resolution on Hold.

OJJPAC provided oral and written testimony to the Cuyahoga County Commissioners recently in opposition to a proposed County Resolution recognizing the Mexico's Matricula Consular ID Card.

A Mexican government official testified in favor of  having Cuyahoga County recognize the ID as did a few likely illegal aliens who complained that they don't have any ID [If they were legal they would have a passport for ID].  The Resolution was also supported by Hispanic business groups.

After OJJPAC provided it's testimony, which included examples of how this Mexican ID was easily counterfeited and is often used for fraudulent purposes, the Commissioners' decided against voting on the Resolution, opting for further study on the issue.

"An Assistant Director of the FBI testified before Congress that the Mexican Matricula is not a verifiable ID" said Steve Salvi, executive director of OJJPAC.  "It is unconscionable that some Ohio public officials are endorsing this fraudulent Mexican ID in order to gain political favor from ethnocentric special interest groups.  Their political pandering puts Americans at risk."

Salvi said that OJJPAC will now work to rescind similar resolutions and ordinances already passed by local governments in Ohio.

LAX IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT RESULTS IN MEXICAN DRUG TRAFFICKERS SETTING UP SHOP IN OHIO 

DEA agents arrested scores of Mexican illegal aliens involved in a black tar herion ring.  The raids took place in cities across the US, including Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Mexicans would transport the drugs by illegally crossing the US border on foot or motor vehicle. 

 

OJJPAC delivered immigration report cards to US Senator's Mike DeWine and George Voinovich in Cleveland on March 22nd.  Thanks to Todd and Felicia for listening to the concerns of OJJPAC (which are shared by a majority of Americans).
 I spoke with Todd, Senator Voinovich's personal assistant about OJJPAC's concerns about guest-worker amnesty legislation currently under consideration in the US Senate Judiciary Committee.  I also noted that President Bush's recent speech in Cleveland betrayed US workers when he claimed that illegals only do jobs American's won't do. I also spoke with Felicia, Senator DeWine's staff assistant about Ohioans' desire to rein in illegal immigration.  I asked  that Senator DeWine  vote against any guest-worker amnesty schemes.  Felecia stated that the Senator has  been getting quite a few calls regarding this issue.

 154 Illegal Alien Criminals Arrested in Ohio

By Steve Salvi

July 21, 2006

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) arrested 154 illegal aliens in Ohio during the culmination of an investigation dubbed "Operation Return to Sender." 

The five day operation began July 9 and involved the assistance of the Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus police departments according to ICE.  

Among the 154 illegal aliens who were arrested two weeks ago, 16 had been arrested and convicted before for crimes including child molestation and attempted murder.  A member of the notorious and deadly Latino gang, MS-13, was also caught in the policing action.

Anyone who has studied illegal immigration in the U.S. is well aware that the Bush administration (and Clinton administration) tied the hands of ICE agents (formerly INS), preventing them from enforcing our nations immigration laws.  If not for public pressure by OJJPAC and other public interest groups on President Bush and Congress, this operation probably would have never been given a green light.

How many terrible crimes against American families -- and children --could have been prevented if this enforcement action would have taken place years ago?  OJJPAC hopes this is not just a one-time Bush administration publicity stunt.  

The 154 criminals that were captured (again) are only the tip of the  illegal alien fugitive iceberg.  Not helping the situation are ethnic pandering Ohio politicians who have endorsed a phony Mexican Matricula Consular Card as legitimate ID (which it isn't).  So with the help of your public officials, these fugitives can take on numerous aliases, making any enforcement action against these criminals much more difficult and dangerous.  

 

ARMED ILLEGAL ALIENS CAUGHT IN CLEVELAND WITH $2,000,000 MILLION IN DRUGS FOR SALE TO YOUR CHILDREN

Cleveland, OH  --  Federal agents arrested nine Mexican and Jamaican illegal aliens eager to work in Ohio selling drugs to your children.  Luckily they were caught by law enforcement before they could ruin more American families with their poison. [How many lives have they already destroyed before being caught?  Just remember, your bank may be doing business with these people. ]

The federal agents also found $144,000 in cash and an assault rifle.

 

Sign of illegal alien times?

Mentor, OH -- Headlands State Park Beach is now posting signs in English and Spanish.  The question is why?

Although Headlands park has a good beach, the park is hardly a tourist destination for Ohioans -- let alone international tourists. So why is there a sign in Spanish when the closest Spanish speaking country is over 1,000 miles away?

Could the answer be that Spanish speaking illegal foreign nationals and their human traffickers are enjoying the sand and sun of Lake Erie while Ohio taxpayers get stuck with the tab?  

 

Painsville Smuggling Indictments...

Just the tip of an Iceberg?   

Are we to believe only a few people in Painsville  knew about the hundreds of alleged illegal aliens being smuggled into the city?   OJJPAC doesn't think so.

Who housed, transported, employed, provided fraudulent documents, and in other ways aided, abetted, and profited from the alleged illegal alien smuggling operation in Painsville?  

Since only four people from Painsville were arrested, I would expect other members of the alleged smuggling operation remain at-large in Painsville. 

This story isn't over.  It's just begun.

Ohio Connection to Human smuggler's arrest in Arizona

How big is the Mexico to Ohio Human Trafficking Pipeline?

5-6-06 By Steve Salvi

A human smuggler, also known as a coyote, was arrested this week in Arizona after an Gila County, Arizona, sheriff's deputy stopped an Ohio-plated van during a traffic stop for minor traffic violations. The deputy allegedly found fifteen Mexican nationals crammed inside the vehicle.  The alleged illegal migrants reportedly paid the smuggler to take them to Ohio. Click here for entire story.

 

Mexican Illegals & Fringe Group Supporters' Protest

National Illegal Alien Boycott Fizzles Out 

5-1-06 Cleveland   A crowd of about 125 Mexican illegals and their generally fringe group supporters gathered on Cleveland's public square Monday to protest the majority of Americans desire for Congress to stop illegal immigration.  Interestingly, as the illegals demand amnesty, there were attempts to intimidate US citizens who believe illegal aliens should not get preferential treatment over legal immigrants and poor Americans. Read more about the national boycott below.

 

POT HOUSE GOES UP IN SMOKE  

Wadsworth Twp.,  OH -- Law enforcement officials are looking for the owners of a new home which burnt-down last month in Wadsworth Township. After putting out the fire, firefighters found a basement reportedly containing over 200 marijuana plants and growing equipment, including a sophisticated lighting and electrical system, in the basement.

The owners reportedly moved recently from California to Ohio but vanished after their house caught fire.  [OJJPAC would like to know why two Californians decided to move to this quiet semi-rural Ohio community to set up an alleged illicit drug operation?  More information to come as details become known.]

Jose Barron-Marquez, 35, a citizen of Mexico, was apprehended by the New Philadelphia Police Department after stealing a U.S. flag and setting it on fire following a July 4th celebration. Marquez provided the arresting officer a false identity, calling himself “Marco Polo.”
