Hurricane Katrina Victims vs Citizens of Other Nations 

Immigration Reform is what the legislature has labeled their efforts to displace US citizens with citizens of other nations who entered the US illegally seeking opportunities for better lives.  One important aspect of the so called reform is granting amnesty with a path to citizenship to reward the law breakers who failed to follow established laws to enter the country legally.

There is a double standard in America - when the victims of Hurricane Katrina majority non-immigrant Black US citizens who as a result of us sanctioned enslavement have a population where one third of the residents live below the poverty line are not supported like law breaking citizens of other nations.   Among the nation’s 100 largest metro areas,  New Orleans ranks third in poverty concentration.   In 2000, 23 percent of the poor in metro New Orleans lived in high-poverty neighborhoods (where at least 40 percent of the population live below the poverty line).

In the days after the hurricane when the city began to flood, tens of thousands of mostly poor Black New Orleanians found themselves without food, water, or shelter, and were forced to depend on local and federal authorities to provide their basic needs.   The US Government  failed to provide support for the non-immigrant Black US citizens leaving many to wonder, why the jail the first institution to be “in business” after the city’s destruction.  

There has not been any amnesty granted to those who were forced to steal food and water in order to survive the disaster, yet the government wants tax payers to foot the bill, an estimated $6.3 trillion to grant amnesty for citizens of other nations illegally seeking opportunities to live the American "dream".  

FACTS:  24 million immigrants came to the US between 1890-1950.  Now the Senate is ready to vote on giving lifetime work permits and residency to 33 million citizens of other countries in the first decade alone.   Currently there are more than 20 million American citizens with a legal right to work in this country seeking full-time employment who have not been hired by American companies stating there is a workforce shortage.  

The estimated cost of  $6.3 trillion dollars to increase the number of foreign workers and grant amnesty to law breakers who have no right to be in America will become the responsibility of the taxpayers.  We are in the 2nd worst economic downturn in the history of the United States.  Fire, police, and other government critical programs that are supposed to serve legal law abiding citizens are being cut daily.    After granting amnesty to illegal immigrants who broke the law in the past, our  government has NEVER taken meaningful or effective steps to secure our borders with illegal immigrants entering the country daily.  Amnesty Now - Enforcement NEVER has been and continues to be the method of operation of our elected representatives.

The irony of this situation is the fact that  I personally wrote a letter to the White House to voice concern about the lack of concern by the current administration to address issues that support economic recovery for American citizens, and that our current economic status does not support increasing the burden to tax payers to support other countries citizens.   I emphasized the fact that Blacks are being disproportionately impacted.

Immediately an auto-response was received via email stating that due to sequestration budget cuts they were furloughed and not working.   Each time the government has granted amnesty under the auspice of immigration reform, they have failed to secure our borders and protect the interests of tax payers and legal citizens.   Immigration reform measures in the past have NEVER resulted in decreased immigration but have increased illegal immigration by rewarding law breaking opportunists from other nations who seek to live the American Dream.

To put this woman on the same list as Osama Bin Laden is a clear message to Blacks in America.  The facts prove that she could not have physically shot the officer she was accused of how can an accusation of a single murder be classified as terrorist?

Why wasn't Sandy Hook or Aurora shooting incidents classified as TERRORIST attacks when many were killed.  Why have they put a death warrant on the head of Assata 40 years later.  Evidence demonstrates that she did not commit the murder and history proves Blacks were jailed for standing up to the oppressors.
 
 

Moors were Already Here

The first Black President of the United States was John Hansen.  Click the image to see the photo to the left at the actual Library of Congress site.  If you try to search for images, they made him out to be a White man.  The Library of Congress record for the fake White impostor states on the site:  Notes:This record contains unverified, old data from caption card.

John Hanson was a Moor who lived in America he was NOT a slave imported from Africa.     John Hanson (1715–1783) of Maryland was elected the first President under the Articles of Confederation.  Hanson, as President, ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as the removal of all foreign flags. This was quite the feat, considering the fact that so many European countries had a stake in the United States since the days following Columbus.   Hanson established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents have since been required to use on all official documents. 

President Hanson also established the first Treasury Department, the first Secretary of War, and the first Foreign Affairs Department. 

Lastly, he declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today. 

The Articles of Confederation only allowed a President to serve a one year term during any three year period, so Hanson actually accomplished quite a bit in such little time. 

 
 

Strategies for Overcoming Oppression

"Jim Crow," or Jim Crow laws, were state and local laws enacted mostly in the Southern and border states of the United States between the 1870s and 1965, when Blacks were denied the right to vote and other civil liberties and were legally segregated from Whites.

Congress committed itself to stopping the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.  It is time to bring the promise to their remembrance.  Throughout history the only time America has taken steps to change the oppressive policies against Blacks has been when the rest of the world has been critical of the treatment of citizens.

The annual Human Rights Watch Report highlighted continual human rights violations of Blacks in America.  The report criticized the disproportionate number of racial and ethnic minorities continuing to flood the criminal-justice system. Approximately 3.1 percent of Black men are behind bars, compared to just 0.5 percent of white men, an imbalance stated that "may contribute to the stigma minorities can face in employment, housing, public benefits, and even voting rights".

“Whites, Blacks, and Latinos have comparable rates of drug use, but are arrested and prosecuted for drug offenses at vastly different rates.   Blacks are arrested for drug offenses, including possession, at three times the rate of White men,” HRW reported.  Link to full report






Black unemployment numbers mean NOTHING because the employment rate demonstrates the true reality that unemployment is close to 40%.  Bureau of Labor Statistics Data

Have you ever heard of amnesty being granted to any victims of US sanctioned enslavement?

Why is there a double standard in America?  Why are the citizens of other nations being granted equal protection, equal rights and given preference over citizens that earned the right to live and work in America.  Citizens of America should not be forced to suffer in order for citizens of other nations seeking opportunities to take advantage of the "American Dream" by breaking the laws of the land.   Black Americans are fighting without amnesty for opportunities to live the "American Dream", a dream that has been and continues to be stolen as a result of public policies that oppress and minimizes the issues of the Black community.

Apology for Slavery

The US Congress and Senate issued non-binding resolutions to apologize for US sanctioned enslavement and legal segregation.  They were both non-binding to ensure that victims had no legal standing to request compensation for the cruelty and inhumane treatment.

Note that the Senate floor was nearly empty when the resolution was made and how the House apology was not front page news.
