Dee Perez-Scott is continuing her misguided diatribe against the Right with falsehoods and hyperbole. She says that they view their Latino opponents as,"ethno-centric Latinos foaming with rage and frenzy demanding open borders." That may not apply to all of the demonstrators in the streets of Phoenix but it certainly applies to Dee Perez-Scott herself. She has been in a rage and frenzy for some time, becoming even more vitriolic and radical since SB1070 was passed by the legislature in Arizona. She has become unhinged and no longer is interested in compromise solutions to the illegal alien problem. She may not be overtly demanding open borders but her oppostion to internal enforcement is tantamount to the same thing. If border jumpers believe they will be home free if they can escape the immediate environs of the border, they will keep coming -- a form of de facto open borders. That is Dee's agenda.
She then accuses the Right of pursuing a policy of ethnic cleansing. This is an outrageous lie designed to further foment the hate, rage and frenzy in her followers.
She accuses the Right of lying to
push its agendaat the same time as she blatantly lies to push her own agenda. She writes about ethnic cleansing knowing full well only extreme elements on both the Left and the Right ever mention or advocate anything close to that. She also knows that the probability of sending all White people back to Europe and other citizens back to their homelands is zero and none. It doesn't matter what extreme elements say or write or do, it will never happen. And what is worse, she knows that!
She accuses the Right of having an ANTI-Latino agenda:
. Changing the 14th amendment (birthright citizenship)
Fact: Among all the developed countries, only the U.S. and Canada still allow Jus Soli or birthright citizenship. The 14th Amendment needs to be changed not as part of an anti-Latino agenda but because it continues to be abused by the large numbers of illegal aliens and tourists to have their instant citizen babies on U.S. soil. The Constitution has been amended 27 times so changes of this sort are not unusual. Some Constitutional scholars agree that it may not even be necessary to change the Amendment itself but to just bring it up to date with current social conditions by changing the implementing law. "It is difficult to imagine a more irrational and self-defeating legal system than one which makes unauthorized entry into this country a criminal offense and simultaneously provides perhaps the greatest possible inducement [i.e. instant citizenship] to illegal entry.”
. Official English (no more Spanish in govt or voting documents)
Fact: She mentions only the Spanish language here to add fuel to her anti-Latino accusation. Ballots and other government proceedings, documents, and publications are conducted or printed in several languages. More than 100 different languages are spoken in the U.S. and Executive Order 13166 requires that documents and services be made available in all of them, not just in Spanish as Dee insinuates in her diatribe about an anti-Latino agenda. This practice is unheard of in other countries. Those with any sense on this issue are merely saying, "Let's stop all of the unnecessary spending on multi-lingual materials and require true fluency in English for citizenship." That would eliminate the need for multi-lingual ballots and most of the other services and publications. Public Interpreters could be provided for those who cannot afford one or who has no family member who can perform this function. For all others interpreters and translations would be a billable service.
. Reduce Immigration quotas from non-white countries
Fact: Dee again indulges in gross lies about immigration quotas. At one time, the quotas were designed to reflect the existing racial, ethnic, or country of origin mix in the general population. It is not clear what the current policy is. Whatever it is,it is leading to an acceleration of the Latino proportion of the population. Counting legal immigrants, illegal aliens and their progeny, Mexico by itself produces as many immigrants as the next ten countries combined. Does that seem fair to all the others who are denied admission.
Some argue that our country is fully settled and developed and therefore we have no need for more immigrants of any kind. Others believe the overall quota should be reduced to no more than 200,000 per year in all categories but focused on those who have the greatest potential for helping us to maintain our competitiveness in the global marketplace. The U.S. produces far to few engineers, physical scientists, and mathematicians than the other countries with whom we must compete. Any quotas for new immigrants should be based on that need.
If a reduction in overall legal immigration quotas falls hardest on Latinos, that is because they are by far the greatest number of involved. Legal immigrant quotas for all countries should be reduced by the best estimate that can be made of the number of illegals that arrive from those countries every year. If the reduced overall quota would admit 100,000 new immigrants from the south but the annual estimate of illegal entries is 500,000, legal immigration from Latin America should be suspended. The same rationale would be applied to all quotas and applicants, regardless of race, color, ethnicity or national origin.
. Mass Deportation of the 12M here plus their children
Fact: There is no mainstream proposal for the mass deportation of illegal aliens even though that is logistically feasible and Dee knows that. This is just another example of Dee's lies and divisive hyperbole.
If there were to be a process for repatriating large numbers but not all illegals it would have to be a slow, systematic process to sort out those who are surplus to our economy and who have displaced American workers. Everyone knows some amount of foreign labor is necessary to support the American economy, especially agricultural labor. At one time in the past, Dee agreed with a proposal that would require employers to re-advertise all of the jobs currently held by illegal aliens, [identifiable through E-Verification], offering a living wage and a hiring preference for citizens. Foreign workers who survive this test would then be offered a green card if they can also pass a background check and a medical exam. This process is a far cry from the mass deportation hysteria Dee promotes at every opportunity in her hate-filled tirades.
Citizen children of illegal aliens cannot be deported. However, what responsible parent under a removal order would abandon their minor children? The most humane policy is for minor children, regardless of citizenship, to accompany their parents under a removal order. These children undoubtedly already speak the mother tongue of their homelands because that was how the parents talk to them. As citizens, when these children reach their majority, they are free to return to the U.S. legally and even sponsor their parents. Abandoning minor children should be considered child abuse.
An Ethnocentric Mexican-American, Dee is unable to view these issues objectively. She shows no appreciation for the fact that reducing legal immigration and the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. is in her, and the Hispanics' enlightened best interests. The more there are of us, the less there will be for each of us including the Hispanics, especially water, arable land, food, timber, and minerals.
