Re: Thomas Allen`s Column:

Bad Samaritan: The Episcopal Migration Ministries

Readers might be
interested to know about a case involving

Lutheran Refugee and Immigration Services
(LIRS) and
a

Liberian
refugee family in

Fargo, North Dakota.

LIRS recently sent a
letter marked “URGENT” demanding that the family
immediately pay their

International Organization for Migration
travel loan
in the full amount of $5,953.
[Thomas
Allen
comments:


IOM
travel loans, which refugees use to pay for airfare to
the U.S., is money that comes from the US government,
not the U.N. or any other `international` organization.
So LIRS is not actually out the money—but it still wants
the 25 percent it gets for acting as a collection
agency.
]

The family, who
arrived last September 26, consists of a middle-aged
mother, 5 underage children, a 19-year-old son, and two
young grandsons.

The woman`s husband
is dead and she has been caring for the two grandsons
since her daughter was killed in a

refugee camp
in
Guinea.

The

refugee woman
is unemployed and has great difficulty
communicating in English. Not only does she

not read
—so therefore could not understand the LIRS
letter— but she says she had repeatedly gone to

Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota
(LSSND

e-mail
) in Fargo to ask for help in deciphering
earlier LIRS letters.

Each time she took
one of the LIRS letters to LSSND she was told that they
would

help
her with her problem. But apparently they did
nothing.

The widow is now
being threatened by LIRS with possible court action. Her
credit rating is in jeopardy.

This is a great
poster-case in

refugee industry
hypocrisy.

An
African-American Patriot in Illinois Demands A Fair
Shake From VDARE.COM

From:  Braveheart

Would you

people
at VDARE.COM please refrain from the American
tradition of lumping all black people together and then
painting them with tainted negative observations about
what is wrong with African Americans?  I call it being
black-blind: if a person is black then he must
be…whatever.

Do you ever have anything positive to say about African
Americans?  Do you ever see us as Americans who have
endured and contributed to this society at the highest
of costs? 

We are the people who provided the "opportunities"
for the waves of white immigrants who landed on these
shores. Wall Street, where the New
York Stock Exchange is located, runs along what was once
the wall of a fort

built by slaves

Our people were forced (via slavery,

Jim Crow
, de facto

segregation
, political manipulation and a long reign
of social terror) to provide the false bottom beneath
which the lowest white could not fall. 

Over and over we were dispossessed of our lands,
businesses and skilled jobs to make way for incoming
waves of white immigrants—be they German, Italian, Irish
or

Polish
.  We were America`s cooks, carpenters,
gardeners, seamstresses, blacksmiths, brick masons,
butchers, woodworkers, leather workers,

cowboys
, farmers, launderers and mill workers.

Each new wave of white immigrants demanded the coveted
skilled jobs that black men had once done.  Whites
systematically used politics to move black men out of
the way.  They formed unions that permanently kept
blacks out. 

Eventually, whites created welfare to ghettoize blacks.
Then they demanded that no man be in the household to
receive the welfare token—thereby taking away the male
head of the family and ensuring the destruction of the
black family.  What you see today in the black
underclass is the result of centuries of white cultural
and

social engineering

African Americans are valiant, hard working people. 
During the last fifty years, more than 50 percent of
black Americans have dug their way out of legally
mandated set-aside poverty that we had to endure. 

Yet we have fought and died for our nation`s freedoms in
every war. We have not mistreated the white children we
were forced to care for.  We, for the most part, have
not sought revenge for the sea of injustices that have
been perpetrated against us.

We have pursued the

American dream
of education and home ownership. As a
result, more African Americans own homes today and are
college educated than ever before in this nation`s
history. Still, everyday we have to face cultural
slander in the media.

Negatives are constantly touted — "black students
score lower on standardized tests, black students don`t
read as well as their white counterparts
…" 

Do you think that two centuries of legally banning black
people from reading books has something to do with this
state of affairs?  It is amazing how otherwise
reasonable whites will turn to self-serving selective
amnesia when it comes to black people.  

There are two black Americas: one

middle class
, the other hard-core underclass.  It
will take concerted efforts to bring underclass children
into safe, moral black church Christian school
environments to educate and train them to live upright,
stable and productive lives. 

Every other ethnic group has gone through this process:
the

Irish
,

Italians
and 
Jews
all knew high crime, high out-of-wedlock births, and
dysfunctional families.  They all used religious based
schools to bring themselves out of their
backwardness. Yet there was no one on the radio and
television daily telling them how "criminally
inclined
," or how "morally bankrupt" or how "lazy"
they are.

African-Americans overwhelmingly self-identify as
Christians.  Millions of black Americans get up every
morning and

go to work
and

work hard
, just like most of this
nation`s citizens. 

We are the embodiment of the Protestant work ethic.
 Thousands of our young black people serve in our
nation`s military.  United States history cannot
be justly told without telling of African American
courage – from the likes of Crispus Attucks (the

first man
to die in the Revolutionary War),

Benjamin Banneker, Jean-Baptiste-Point DuSable
,

Martin Luther King
,

Colin Powell
and Condoleezza Rice.

We are a great people; we are

great Americans
.  As human beings we deserve to have
our positive contributions recognized by anyone who
speaks about us.

As American citizens, we demand it.


Braveheart has


opposed

illegal immigration for 30 years
.
About blacks and
immigration reform, she says, “When black people are
quiet that means they don`t support the person or the
issue. You don`t see black people supporting those who
are demanding amnesty.”

Born in
Chicago into a blue-collar family, Braveheart is the
product of the Chicago public schools. After graduating
from Harvard University, where she lived across the
street from


Julia Child
, Braveheart became
(as she describes herself), a domestic diva with a
strong attachments to Ray Charles,


Martha Stewart
and, of course,
Child.

A California Reader Draws
The Connection Between Heavy H-1B Usage and Corporate
Fraud, Big Financial Losses

From:
An Endangered American Professional

Many organizations reliant on H-1B workers suffer huge
losses and are embroiled in ugly scandals.

Even though activism against illegal aliens has had a
positive effect on some of our elected officials, the
general public continues to be

blissfully unaware
of the economic and security
threats posed by the H-1B visa program.

Consider that:

1. Major

NASA
contractors (such as Science Applications
International       Corporation) hired hundreds of
computer hardware, software, and aerospace engineers
under the H-1B program in the years leading up to the
tragic explosion of the space shuttle

Columbia
. Even NASA itself has hired at least one
foreign aerospace engineer via the H-1B Visa program.

2. The companies
that manufacture those unreliable e-Voting machines (Diebold,
Sequoia, Hart Intercivic, and ESS) all extensively use
H-1B technical personnel.

3.
Enron
and

WorldCom
both hired numerous H-1B workers for
technical jobs, and then the leaders of these two firms
perpetrated the biggest accounting frauds in history in
an attempt to cover up massive financial losses. Former
executives from both companies have been convicted on
criminal charges related to the scams.

4.

Sanjay Kumar
, the former CEO of Computer Associates
International Inc., recently pleaded guilty to
obstruction of justice and securities fraud charges. His
former company has used non-immigrant  H-1B labor for
years.

5.

Tyco International
, a multinational firm whose
former chief executive and chief financial officer were
convicted of fraud, is now the defendant in a massive
class action lawsuit filed by current and former
shareholders. The lawsuit alleges that former executives
and board members, including former Chief Executive

Dennis Kozlowski
and former Chief Financial Officer

Mark Swartz
, operated the company as a criminal
enterprise to enrich themselves.

Pricewaterhouse Coopers
(Tyco`s accounting firm) has
also been named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Both Tyco
and Pricewaterhouse Coopers hired dozens of H-1B workers
to fill technical and professional job categories in the
years prior to and during the scandal.

6. America Online
(AOL) merged with

Time Warner Communications
in 2001. The newly formed
conglomerate then posted a record $99 billion dollar
loss in fiscal 2002. The board of directors removed

Steve Case
as Chief Executive Officer, but not
before Mr. Case pocketed tens of millions of dollars in
bonuses and stock options. AOL and Time Warner
successfully filed labor condition applications (LCAs)
to hire H-1B workers for a wide array of professional
positions before and after the merger.

The

corporatists
—as well as their paid lackeys in the
mainstream media and Congress—would have us believe that
the H-1B program is vital to American competitiveness
and efficiency.

If

that is the case
, then why do so many organizations
that use these foreign workers suffer financial
failures, legal problems, and technical breakdowns?

and other non-immigrant visas written by VDARE.COM

Matloff,
