This year’s Whistleblower Summit had many interesting and illumination discussion panels.

For us at the Silver Standard and The EARN Project, the panel conducted by Marti Oakley was of most interest.

Many people are drawn to the Summit just to meet Marti. They have listened to her shows on her TS Radio Network, and they appreciate her for being a leading voice for reform and her achievement in bringing this issue to the Summit. She was her usual dynamic self, shining a light into the dark corners of this growing global threat. More

TSCL Opposing Green Cards to Illegal Immigrants

Anger over illegal immigration, including that from thousands of senior supporters of TSCL, is throwing a monkey wrench into Congressional efforts to pass immigration amnesty legislation this year.  But the Obama Administration appears to be bent on considering actions it could take without Congressional approval to achieve its objectives anyway, including giving permanent resident status and “green cards” to large numbers of people in the country illegally.

Recently an internal draft memo, prepared for the head of the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS), was made public by a group of Senators who are demanding that Congress hold a hearing to investigate.  The memo, prepared by four senior officials in the USCIS, lists ways the government could help certain categories of illegal immigrants achieve permanent legal residence status and green cards—absent reform.  “In the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, CIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations,” the memo said.

A spokesman for the USCIS said the document was only a draft memo and should not be equated with actual policy.  But critics, including TSCL, say that the memo gives credence to the concern that the administration would try to execute a “back-door amnesty” plan that could add significant long-term costs to Social Security and Medicare.

A green card is an identification card issued to aliens in the U.S. who are in the process of becoming a permanent resident.  It serves as proof that the cardholder has officially been granted permission to reside and take employment in the U.S.— the very two things illegal workers must have to claim Social Security benefits.  Under current law, benefits claimed by former illegal workers may be based, at least in part, on unauthorized work.  When determining entitlement to Social Security benefits, the Social Security Administration uses all earnings, even for jobs worked while the immigrant was illegal.

TSCL strongly opposes extending green cards to illegal immigrants by Administrative rule changes, and instead supports legislation that would protect Social Security by banning work credits based on unauthorized work.  Take Action!

“However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface.  In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices.  Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated.”

Well, I have done it!  I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009.  I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law.  I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional.  What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected. 

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying.  The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession. 

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system.  All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals.  Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government. 

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. More
