Joe Guzzardi, as always, makes an excellent point in his column
about banks, profits, illegal aliens and the law.
"Illegal aliens are working, illegally, on construction crews that are building houses to be sold, illegally, to aliens who have
obtained their mortgages illegally."
Any reasonable person must agree that making mortgage loans to illegal aliens is knowingly encouraging those illegal aliens to remain in the United States - for a profit.
Doing so is a clear violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
See USC 8, 1324.
"(iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law;"
It is also money laundering.
The illegal alien, having violated our immigration laws
by being here, goes to work for a criminal employer,
putting both in further violation of our immigration and employment laws. Presenting and accepting either a false or stolen social security number violates another annoying federal law.
Very often the wages are simply paid out in cash - no pesky deductions
to bother with...a violation of our federal income tax laws.
With all the talk of a War on Terror, broken systems, willing workers, the search for a better life and a nation of laws, it must not be forgotten that illegal workers and illegal employers are being allowed to filter their illegally obtained profits through our banking system.
The money goes in dirty - illegal alien/employer - presto...comes out -willing worker /willing employer - as a clean bank account withdrawal.
Last year, 16 billion American
mostly ill-gotten dollars was sent "home
" to Mexico before a dime of it went anywhere near our economy.
All this, as Joe notes, with the tacit approval and active assistance of the President of the United States...our Chief Executive. Organized crime
Treason Inc. anyone?
Let’s keep in mind that any amnesty being pushed from the White House is intended for the treasonous profiteers as much as it is for the illegal aliens themselves.
Just as there can be no amnesty for the illegal aliens and the criminal employers...neither can there be amnesty for President Bush.
