Gheen Vs Gilchrist (this is so funny)


It only took Simcox two days to pile on and take his cheap shot at Jim Gilchrist as well. He and his friend William Gheen (ALIPAC) have started a “destroy Gilchrist and Huckabee” campaign with help from among the kooks and zealots of the movement.

William Gheen, President of ALIPAC, has had a personal grudge against Jim Gilchrist since the Minuteman Project was founded. Gheen makes his living soliciting donations from unsuspecting Americans in the name of border security. What most people don’t know is just how much of the donor money coming into his organization Gheen pockets. He has never opened his books to the public or explained what happened to the money that many hard working people have given to him. William Gheen uses fear- mongering and race baiting to scare old people out of their savings with stories of “the savage invasion from the Southern border”.

When Gilchrist founded the Minuteman Project many patriots believed that Jim was doing mo…

Immigration debate should be fact-based

A recent University of South Carolina study concluded that the effects of the Latino presence in the state are mixed, with wage depression occurring only in some sectors. It also concluded that the still small (but growing) Latino presence in South Carolina has led tosmall education and health care costs. This study also noted that despite an increasing Latino presence in health care facilities, Latinos do not appear to be overwhelming the system. For example, in 2005 Latinos made up only 1.6 percent of all hospital discharges (inpatient, outpatient or emergency room visits).
The study also pointed out that federal funding has provided some of the resources needed by the South Carolina public education system to provide services to Latinos. Furthermore, schools are also community centers that bring together cultural and linguistic diversity that will be needed by students who will compete in an increasingly globalized world.
A recent Urban Institute study concluded that Mexicans (the ma…

Going After Kids

One of the more disturbing issues in the immigration debate is its impact on children, including American citizens in immigrant families. NCLR and the Urban Institute published a report last fall on the subject, which documents that alarming numbers of children have been separated from their parents in immigration workplace raids. The Nickelodeon network, to its credit, took a look at what happens to these children when they're "deported" with their families, and when they're left behind when parents are deported.
Check out the comments that have appeared on the ALIPAC (Americans for Legal Immigration) website - which claims it is merely concerned about legality - in response to the Nick News feature on this issue: "Did you know that the illegals have carved out their own hallways in the public schools? My daughter said that she feels uncomfortable when she has to use the hall to get from class to class. Legal American's are being terrorized by the illegals…

ALIPAC wannabe Caught Violating Federal Election Law - Forked Over $10,000 in Fines!

ADR 388
RESPONDENT: Americans Against Illegal Immigration PAC and John W. Leuthold in his official capacity as treasurer

SOURCE: FEC Initiated (Reports Analysis Division)

SUBJECT: Failure to disclose all financial activity

NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENT: The FEC's routine review of the American Illegal Immigration PAC's disclosure reports revealed that the committee failed to disclose all financial activity on its original 2005 Year End Report. The committee filed an amended Year End Report, disclosing additional receipts totaling $83,571.85, additional disbursements totaling $75,764.62 and additional debt totaling $98,715.26.

The Committee claimed that the omissions occurred because of difficulties with reporting software and explained that the problem was corrected.

In a negotiated settlement with the FEC, respondents agreed to pay a $10,000 civil penalty and take measures to prevent future similar errors.

The no save act

Oppose HR 4088, “The Secure America Through Verification and Enforcement Act of 2007” Bill, known as the SAVE Act. The SAVE Act is a cynical and politically motivated attack on immigrant families and a foolish burden on our fragile economy.
It would require approximately six million employers to verify the work status of more than 130 million workers within four years.If passed, the SAVE Act would place a tremendous financial and regulatory burden on businesses and employees at a time when our economy is already fragile. This is a foolish proposal at a time when our economy is already fragile. The federal database that would be used to enforce the SAVE Act is known to have an unacceptably high error rate – nearly 10 percent!An independent study of the E-Verify/Basic Pilot program found that the ½ of 1 percent of employers that use the program often misuse it, and that the data base would need to be significantly improved before it can be expanded. This is a recipe for a f…

Anti-Immigration group caught not paying taxes

Most new immigrants and even undocumented immigrants pay taxes and it's a myth ALIPAC.us (not to be confused with ALIPAC.net) loves to spread. Despite their name, they are opposed to all types of immigration from non-European countries and often call it the third world invasion of the U.S.

I somehow doubt William Gheen will admit to his supporters that their hard earned money is now in the hands of undocumented immigrants.

You gotta love this country.

Everyone has to pay their fair share of taxes, it doesn't matter if they're a poor undocumented immigrant looking to feed their family back home who isn't aware of the tax laws or William Gheen intentionally trying to screw the system.

I think it's a testament to just how the majority of undocumented immigrants are dedicated to being productive members of society. The majority of immigrants (yes, even undocumented immigrants)opt to pay their share of taxes (often overpay because they are unaware they qualify…
