Illegal Immigration in Oregon

The Bulletin
Letter: State as well as federal policies fuel illegal immigration

By Richard LaMountain /
Published Aug 12, 2014 at 12:02 AM
The surge of tens of thousands of Central Americans to our southern border is the predictable and inevitable
consequence of government actions that encourage illegal immigration.

For that encouragement, President Barack Obama bears most of the blame. Culpable too, however, are
policies enacted by states — such as driving privileges for illegal immigrants, more on which is below.

But first things first. “In his time in office,” USA Today correspondent Alan Gomez wrote recently, Obama
“has stopped the worksite immigration raids … and created a program that has granted protected status to
more than 500,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.” That program, writes U.S.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., “declare(d) to the entire world that America will not enforce its immigration laws
against those who enter the country as minors.”

Of Obama’s “record” deportations? The Los Angeles Times’ Brian Bennett: “Deportations of people
apprehended in the interior of the U.S. … dropped from 237,941 in Obama’s first year to 133,551 in 2013.”
Of last year’s deportees from the interior, some 80 percent had serious criminal convictions.
But under Obama, “minor criminals, even chronic reoffenders, reckless or drunk drivers, those with families,
those rejected for green cards, anyone claiming to have been brought as a child, and relatives of veterans
are all considered off-limits for enforcement,” writes Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies.
The result? “If you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally,” says John Sandweg, past acting director of
the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, “your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”
All this has been duly noted by Central Americans. Indeed, the El Paso Intelligence Center reported recently,
many of them arriving at the border have told U.S. Border Patrol agents their “primary reason for migrating to
the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting (them) free passes or permisos” — a
perception doubtless fed by Obama’s long history of immigration leniency.

As if that weren’t enough, many state governments have offered another layer of inducements to illegal
immigration. California, for instance, has restricted businesses’ ability to discipline or terminate employees
who worked for them using false Social Security numbers. Illinois has provided illegal immigrants substantial
health and child care benefits above and beyond federal emergency care mandates. A number of states,
including Oregon, offer illegal immigrants in-state college tuition; Texas qualifies them for college financial
aid.

But perhaps the state policy most beneficial to illegal immigrants — and the most powerful magnet drawing
them to the 11 states that offer it — is access to legal driving privileges. Case in point: Eddie de la Cruz of
Hermiston’s Hispanic Advisory Committee told the East Oregonian recently that many of Oregon’s illegal
immigrants have left for (in the newspaper’s words) “states where they are allowed to drive to work legally.”
In May 2013, Oregon’s Legislature passed and Gov. John Kitzhaber signed a bill enacting driver cards f or
illegal immigrants. But opponents forced a referendum onto this November’s ballot that will enable
Oregonians to approve or deny those cards.

If they vote “yes,” they will make Oregon what Obama and many states governments have made the nation
as a whole: a more attractive destination for illegal immigrants. If they vote “no,” they will demonstrate to the
nation that they will not add to the kinds of policies that caused, and perpetuate, the border surge.
Policymakers everywhere will be watching closely. With their vote, Oregonians should tell them: Stop
creating the incentives that attract illegal immigrants to our home.

— Richard LaMountain served as a chief petitioner of the referendum effort to repeal immigrant driver cards.
He lives in Portland.

ICYMI: Update from Rep. Greg Walden

 

Growing up on a cherry orchard in The Dalles, I learned the value of hard work and integrity.  I carried those lessons with me as my wife and I founded our small businesses in Oregon.  We worked long, hard hours and know what it takes to sign both sides of a paycheck.  And I bring those lessons with me as I work hard to serve Oregonians and solve problems in local communities.

 

But far too often it seems like parts of the federal government—from the IRS, to the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, to the Veterans Administration—have forgotten these lessons. And there’s no better example of this than the worst fiscal failure in our state’s history: Cover Oregon.

 

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on this broken website, and taxpayers have little to show for it. The leaders of this failed organization finally agreed to throw in the towel and scrap the whole thing, leaving taxpayers struck with the bill.

 

On top of that, the state continues to reward the people responsible for Cover Oregon’s failure by paying employees retention bonuses to stay on the exchange’s payroll.  And they’re spending $650,000 of your tax dollars to do it.  It’s time to stop this outrageous waste and get the truth!

 

That’s why I worked hard to seek and secure an independent investigation into the failure of Cover Oregon from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Taxpayers deserve answers, and those in charge of this expensive boondoggle need to be held accountable.

 

But the health care law is more than failed websites, continued confusion, and broken promises. It puts the federal government between you and your health care provider, further extending the government’s tentacles into the private lives of Oregonians.

 

And one way they are paying for this is raiding Medicare. There’s a provision tucked away in Obamacare that makes drastic cuts to home health providers—a total of 14 percent over the next three years. The board that sets Medicare rates predicts that the cuts will cause more than 40 percent of home health providers nationwide to operate in the red.  And that number jumps to 70 percent of home care providers in Oregon. According to the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare, over 15,000 Oregonians already utilizing home health services will lose access to their providers and 3,000 home health care workers in Oregon will lose their jobs.

 

Taking away this important access to care eliminates patients’ ability to control their own health care decisions. Home care provides a sense of comfort, familiarity, and normalcy for the patient and their loved ones.  I know this first hand, because it’s a choice my parents made.  And it’s not just a win for the patient. Home-based care benefits Medicare as a whole.  Having people recover at home is less expensive than in a hospital or nursing home.

 

That’s why I’ve introduced legislation to stop these harsh cuts to home health care, the Securing Access via Excellence (SAVE) for Medicare Home Health Act of 2014.  Instead of these sweeping, across the board cuts, the SAVE Medicare Home Health Act puts in place smart reforms that reward home health agencies that provide high value care to their patients while cutting payments to agencies that don’t meet certain performance and quality standards.  Government intrusion shouldn’t cost Oregon seniors the care they rely on.

 

Meanwhile, Americans are correctly outraged by the scandal at the VA.  As a nation, we owe our veterans the best care possible.  From World War II to Korea, Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, they’ve all fought to defend our freedom, and we must ensure they receive the benefits and care they’ve earned.

 

That’s why the House has acted to clean up the mess at the VA. We’ve passed legislation to hold senior level managers at the agency accountable for the agency’s progress. And we unanimously approved emergency legislation that would allow veterans who have been waiting for an appointment more than 30 days the ability to get timely care outside the VA system. The Senate has passed similar legislation, and negotiators from both chambers recently completed hammering out a final version that is in the process of being sent to the President’s desk to be signed into law.

 

Besides working to improve health care for Oregonians, I’m continuing efforts to create jobs and change federal policy to better manage public lands. Last September, the House passed our bipartisan legislation to fix broken federal forest policy to create jobs in the woods, improve forest health, and provide revenue for essential local services like schools and law enforcement. As we enter what could be a very bad fire season, this legislation is more important than ever. The Senate should take it up and pass it as soon as possible before Oregonians are choking on smoke once more this summer. We can continue to build healthy communities and create a strong future for many generations to come.

 

Finally, I’m working hard on legislation to promote public access to our public lands. Whether it’s camping and hunting or fishing and picking berries with the grandchildren, recreation is part of our culture and heritage in Oregon.  That’s why I’ve introduced the Forest Access in Rural Communities Act- to ensure that federal government can’t restrict forest access without input from local communities.

 

I’ll continue to work hard to grow our economy, reduce wasteful spending, and stop growing government intrusion in your lives. So if you or a loved one needs help with Social Security, Medicare, veteran’s benefits, or any other federal agency, please call my office toll free from the 541 area code at 800-533-3303.  I will do everything I can to get results for you. It’s an honor to represent you in the U.S. Congress.

Senator Sessions and Illegal Immigration

Background: The president, by presidential decree, has opened the borders and now plans to grant work permits to five - six million illegal immigrants. Democrat politicians expect, of course, that these immigrants can be purchased as reliable democrat voters.

Richardson vs Kitzhaber Debate

Long but interesting…

I you don’t have an hour, here is the newsmedia summary:


Quick Summary of Issues Debated

Issue Richardson Kitzhaber
Oregon doing well financially No, many failures Yes, but more to do
Common Core No Yes
Push for more local control of federal land Yes No
Top two primary ballot initiative Yes Yes
Legalization of marijuana No No

And here is the full debate (you can skip the ad after a few seconds):

The bottom line is that Richardson will be much more engaged as Governor in solving Oregons problems.

Protect Oregon Driver Licenses Referendum

PolkCounty

There is one ballot measure in November that will really bring out Republican voters.  Protect Oregon Driver Licenses (PODL) was successful in gathering over 77,000 signatures on their citizens veto referendum to overturn the bill which required the DMV to issue driver cards to illegal aliens.   We need to urge voters to vote NO on this measure in November.

PODL would like to mail every Republican County Party information packed brochures and other materials for their members to pass out at local events this summer.  The Oregon Republican Party has endorsed the referendum to overturn the driver card bill and the Republican Party platform has a plank in opposition to giving Oregon driver cards to illegal aliens.

Two of the Chief Petitioners and endorsers of the referendum are Representative Sal Esquivel (R- Medford) and Representative Kim Thatcher (R-Keizer).  Also, Senator Tim Knopp and Senator Jeff Kruse have endorsed the referendum campaign.  The Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association (Sheriffs of Oregon PAC) has also given their endorsement to the referendum campaign.  The ORP platform is clear on illegal immigration.  Needless to say, voters who turn out for this measure are likely to vote for Republicans up and down the ticket.

If you would like materials such as buttons, pencils, informational brochures about the referendum, etc. to distribute at your events this summer, or if you would like PODL volunteers to help staff your booth, please contact Cynthia Kendoll at jcniles@teleport.com or by phone at (503) 581-6485 and Protect Oregon Driver Licenses will send them out to you.

If you would like to invite a speaker to attend one of your meetings to talk about the referendum, what’s happening on the border or any other immigration related topic please contact Cynthia!

Thank you so very much!
