Mumpower: A Conspiracy of Complacency on Illegal Immigration

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 9, 2008

~PRESS RELEASE~

Two of the largest public works projects in Asheville, the county parking garage and city water system upgrade, are playing a big role in the widespread conspiracy on illegal immigration in WNC. In both cases a majority of the hands on workers do not speak English – a pointed indication of extraordinary success in hiring disadvantaged legal immigrants or patterned indifference to the illegal status of a large group of employees. Though the use of public dollars to fund law breakers is especially galling, our city and county governments are certainly not alone in sidestepping the rule of law.

Throughout WNC, industries, restaurants, and small businesses dodge the law and wink at the false documents routinely used by people who are here illegally. The Catholic Church of North Carolina recently took the veil off their internal policy of appeasement with a formal position paper that included statements such as, “We are particularly distressed by the recent tragedies of our brothers and sisters who are faced with the escalation in deportation enforcement in our states.” What about the fact that most of those deported have repeatedly violated our borders or engaged in criminal activities within our borders? The Catholic Church, along with many other denominations, is apparently no less self-serving in their efforts to recruit new Hispanic members than our President and Congressional leaders are at recruiting new Hispanic voters.

Affirming the legal status of an employee is not difficult. Through a Federal program called E-Verify (www.vis-dhs.com/EmployerRegistration), any registered employer can obey the law and support the sanctity of our borders by assuring that a worker is also playing it by the rules.

Reversing the flow of illegal immigrants overloading our social service, school, health care, and criminal justice systems is not impossible or even complicated. It all begins with the word accountability – most specifically for those employers who are providing the money and jobs that are funding the flood at the expense of the rest of us. Enthusiastic federal, state, and local enforcement with fines and other consequences will quickly motivate employers to stop side stepping their competition, shifting real costs to tax payers, and ignoring the law.

For any of the above to come to fruition, the majority of Americans who believe that illegal immigration is wrong are going to have to hold our politicians accountable for their complacency. Democrats and members of my own party alike are co-conspirators in dodging this issue and allowing employers and enablers to conspire to break the law. What started as a wink and a surrender to self-service has evolved into the greatest law breaking scheme in America’s history. That is not something that any of us should be complacent about.

Commentary

I notice that on the construction projects on the campus of Western Carolina University, there are a lot of Spanish-speaking people as well. I wonder how many of them are illegal aliens, and how many local people would love the opportunity to work on these projects.

I think I’ll note the numbers of the construction companies and ask if they use eVerify, and I’ll ask the college as well about their policy on this matter.

This is something we can all do, you would be surprised at how effective a few phone calls can be in bringing about policy changes.

Hour Long Video Of Mexican Consulate Protest In Hendersonville, NC

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 29, 2008

Citizens in western North Carolina came together yesterday and protested the Mexican Consulate issuing Identification to 400 or so Mexicans yesterday in Hendersonville, North Carolina:

Among the groups participating were The Action Club, ALIPAC, NC Listen, and congressional candidate Carl Mumpower. The videographer was Richard Bernier who has a public access show called Sound Off Buncombe on URTV. The show airs on Charter Cable channel 20 in Buncombe and Madison counties.

**update** I forgot to add Paul Purdue to the list. He is a candidate for NC House District #115.

Latino Advocacy Group Assisting Illegal Aliens Tomorrow At Blue Ridge Community College Updated With Protest Plans

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 27, 2008

This was forwarded to my via my You Tube Account this morning:

Immigration Reformers and Concerned Citizens,

I know I have emailed you a fair amount in the last two weeks, but events don’t happen always in order.

Blue Ridge Community College (Flat Rock – NC), part of the North Carolina Community College system, was sent a letter by NC LISTEN to inform them that the Latino Advocacy Coalition of Henderson County was renting a state building on their community college campus for purposes of inviting Mexican Consulate officials to provide and assist illegal immigrants with Consular Matricula ID cards. The event scheduled [and predominantly advertised in Spanish] for this Saturday 28 June at the Thomas Auditorium Gallery at Blue Ridge Community College [8am to 9pm] will also provide recommendations and other information to illegal immigrants and foreign nationals. Foreign government officials should not be using our state government buildings for purposes of issuing foreign ID cards that have the primary purpose of being used by illegal immigrants to open bank accounts, etc. Our federal government does not accept Consular Matricular cards for ID purposes and the FBI has stated they are unreliable as an ID and can be easily forged.

Blue Ridge has just informed us the event will not be stopped and will be allowed to take place on their campus. Even though foreign government officials from Mexico and illegal immigrants will be there as noted above, Blue Ridge Community College through their PR person [Ms. LeeAnna Haney] has pointed out the event is not open to the general public and furthermore we [citizens with interest] are advised not to come-on campus during the event. I expect citizens should decide for themselves whether they can attend or not and whether to videotape what they observe.

It is important to call Dr. Molly Parkhill, President of Blue Ridge Community College, at (828) 694-1705 to insist rental space not be provided for this event on 28 June [her asst has the same phone number]. Also email local politicians for that area: State House member Carolyn Justus at Carolynj@ncleg. net and State Senator Tom Apodaca at Toma@ncleg.net and call US Congressman Heath Shuler at (828) 252-1651. Also please contact Henderson County Blue Ridge Comm College Board of Trustee members [College President’s office said they could not give out email addresses] Bill Farrell at 828-697-5640, Tom Orr at (828) 693-6430, Chip Gould at (828) 692-5960, and Candler Willis at (828) 693-3164.

Let’s stop this event HERE and NOW. Word has it they are going to be doing this at several other of our NC Community Colleges around the state in the next two months. This type of activity is outrageous and I need your help to put a stop to it.

Regards,

Ron Woodard
Director
NC LISTEN

Commentary

Well, this would seem to be an illegal effort, especially by a FOREIGN GOVERNMENT, would it not? Hendersonville is a little to far for me to travel on such short notice, but perhaps not for others. If you are interested in showing up there tomorrow, email me, and I might put you in touch with other people so you can coordinate with them, or you can get in touch with Ron via his website.

**update**

Press release from Mumpower:

Mexican Consular Visit To Be Protested

An anticipated Friday and Saturday visit by the Mexican Consulate to the Blue Ridge Community campus in Hendersonville is subject to protest according to a spokesman for the Mumpower for Congress Committee. The visit is being sponsored by the Latino Advocacy Coalition of Henderson County, who have rented space at the campus for those interested in receiving a “Consular Matricula” I.D. card from the Mexican Embassy. According to Lee Anna Haney, a spokesperson for the college, North Carolina is one of the few states that recognize the Consular Matricula I.D. card as a valid form of identification to obtain a state driver’s license.

Ron Woodard of North Carolina Listen, a non-profit group targeting illegal immigration issues, has shared concerns with the school that the consular I.D.’s make it easier to remain in America illegally. “It also appears that this event is to assist illegal immigrants in general with recommendations and other information,” said Woodard.

A request by North Carolina Listen to monitor the event was declined by the Blue Ridge College administration. “As to your group’s desire to “monitor” this event that request is denied,” said Ms. Haney. “The College is not the equivalent of a public park. Use of College facilities must comply with our facilities use policy and groups or individuals may not come on campus to monitor other groups.”

The office of 11th District Republican Congressional candidate Carl Mumpower has announced a planned protest of the event. Those interested are invited to meet at the Mumpower for Congress campaign office at Suite 310, One Oak Plaza, in Asheville at 6:15 am for the trip to Hendersonville. There will be a follow-up breakfast gathering at the Upward Road Cracker Barrel at 7:00 with the protest beginning sometime around 8:00 that morning on or about Blue Ridge Community College.

“This activity on a tax supported college campus illustrates our government’s paralysis on illegal immigration; the audacity and double standard of the Mexican government; and the indulgences of those who conspire to appease, support, and otherwise benefit from illegal immigration,” said Mumpower.

“Illegal immigration is the greatest law breaking scheme in America’s history and it is past time for our politicians to be more concerned with enforcing the rule of law and protecting America’s borders than shielding their dignity and getting reelected.” “This protest has nothing to do with Latinos, immigration, racism or any of the other decoy issues that conspirators use to distract Americans from action. It is simply about one word – illegal.”

Mumpower has been encouraged by supporters and advisors to offer a position statement but otherwise avoid the event. “Concern for image and political correctness has kidnapped accountability and action in America – I have no interest in continuing that theme with my own version of political cowardliness,” said Mumpower. “With our staff and resources, we are in a better position than about anyone in WNC to organize a responsible protest of this event.” “No doubt we will run into hurdles, but we will do what we can and leave the rest in the hands of higher authority.”

Principles before party, power, or popularity – always.

The rally will be from 11am-1pm on the Bicentennial Mall, which is across Jones St. from the main entrance of the NC Legislature. Supporters are also encouraged to join us, on the 1st floor inside the legislative building from 8am-5pm, to distribute materials and lobby NC lawmakers against HB 2717 that would allow illegal aliens in NC Colleges, while supporting measures to protect American jobs, tax resources, and lives threatened by illegal immigration.
