    Indeed Kesha Rogers, Our Babbling President, BO is Obviously Losing it, and Illegal Aliens are Taking Full Advantage of the Golden Opportunity, that Will End for Them, Should BO Lose the Election to Mitt Romney!

     

    'Deferred action' program puts strain on L.A. Unified, School district is being inundated with requests for documents by thousands of illegal immigrants seeking to apply for Obama's 'deferred action' program.

    by Howard Blume, Los Angeles Times, 8:19 PM PDT, September 16, 2012

    Myriam Ortiz, who entered the country illegally with her parents 19 years ago, finally has a chance to get a job, thanks to recent changes in federal policy.

    That prospect sent her to the Los Angeles Unified School District for the necessary documents — along with thousands of others, creating a backlog and new challenges for the nation's second-largest school system.

    Ortiz is among an estimated 200,000 current and former students who are potentially eligible for the "deferred action" program of the Obama administration. Under it, immigrants 30 and younger can remain in the country and work legally for a two-year period, with the possibility of extensions.

    "It was like a dream," Ortiz, 29, said, "the greatest news I'd heard in years."

    But a bureaucratic nightmare loomed for L.A. Unified, which has endured deep budget cuts in virtually every department. Even before the first day that applicants could submit forms to the federal government — Aug. 15 — L.A. Unified officials had accumulated a backlog of at least 2,300 requests for records.

    Applicants for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals need to prove they've lived in this country continuously since June 15, 2007. If they attended district schools, L.A. Unified will provide a record of enrollment, along with listed addresses.

    High school transcripts are available, too; applicants need to show they are attending school, received a diplomaor obtained a general education development certificate, or GED.

    The Board of Education took action last week to help expedite the process. The board directed that all current requests be handled within 35 days and future ones within seven days, among other measures.

    District officials said the school system has been working through such issues for several months.

    The district hopes to provide records for free or at nominal cost. The federal government charges $465 per application, a sizable fee for many applicants.

    The district expects to spend at least $200,000 in staff costs; in addition, employees have worked overtime to improve the system for records requests.

    On Friday, officials alerted schools that applicants could seek documents online or fill out a form at schools that would be processed expeditiously at the central office.

    "We're doing this to relieve individual school sites from having to complete these when they already have reduced resources," said Lydia Ramos, a special assistant to L.A. schools Supt. John Deasy. Officials also understand the sense of urgency among applicants, who worry about their window closing should Obama fail to win reelection in November.

    Last year, Bell High School received about 200 requests for transcripts. This year, it has surpassed that total just since July 1, Principal Rafael Balderas said.

    Balderas asked his clerical staff to provide documents within 72 hours of a request, but he said the school is two weeks behind because "we are being inundated."

    The estimate of 200,000 possible applicants is based on the number of students whose parents listed a country other than the United States as their child's place of birth. Some in that category are here legally, but it's also possible that some parents falsely claimed U.S. citizenship to avoid admitting they'd entered the country without papers.

    Dropouts in this group now have an incentive to return to school or pass the GED, officials said.

    L.A. Unified's adult education division is getting calls from about a dozen former students every day seeking information about the GED program, Executive Director Mike Romero said. Last year, before the federal policy change, 3,600 students obtained a GED through the adult division.

    For this year, L.A. Unified slashed its adult school offerings by about half, on top of earlier cuts from past years. About 1,000 slots for GED preparation classes are being funded.

    "We're pretty much filled up" for the current semester, Romero said. Because of widespread budget cuts, "quite a few school districts have closed the GED testing centers they offered through adult education. There are fewer and fewer opportunities."

    Students can still take the GED through L.A. Unified without the preparation course.

    Bell High senior Saul Barrera, 17, entered the country at age 10 after a 22-day ordeal traveling with his mother from El Salvador.

    He remembers his birthplace distantly, as a place with family members and where he became fascinated watching airplanes. At Bell, he's a varsity athlete in soccer, track and field, cross country and volleyball. He's a peer counselor and takes a small business class, Advanced Placement English and honors government.

    He's also mastered the electric guitar licks of Slash from Guns N' Roses.

    Bilingual coordinator Luis Tejada said Saul reminds him of another student, a talented writer who learned to play classical piano by ear. Unable to work or pay for college, that student returned to Mexico, Tejada said.

    Critics of the deferred action program have said it undermines U.S. immigration law and that people who enter the country illegally shouldn't be eligible for jobs that could otherwise go to legal residents.

    Tejada sees it differently.

    "So many of these are talented kids who go through our school system and have the potential to give so much," Tejada said. "They are so American."

    Saul intends to major in science in college and to join the U.S. Air Force.

    "I feel like doors are opening up for me," he said, "that I'm getting the opportunity I deserve, and I'll do something to show I want to become something in life."

    Ortiz, meanwhile, earned a degree in child development from community college and got married. She's raising her 4-year-old and has volunteered in schools where she would have liked to work. Now, she said, she hopes to become a teacher or open a day-care center.

    Request forms can be printed or completed online starting Monday at http://home.lausd.net/.

    Illegal Immigrants Scamming the IRS, While Some IRS Agents Condone This

    "Since these illegal immigrants are using a program setup by Executive order that program could be eradicated on 20 Jan 2013. I believe in the Dream Act but only if we find a way to stop illegal immigrants from getting employment here. That is what will stop further illegal immigration." by NuYwk

    The "Dream Act" is un-Constitutional and blatantly unfair to the many legal immigrants who had to wait his or her turn to become a naturalized citizen or legal immigrant.....many of these individuals are still on the waiting list…..

    ……….while BO circumvents the U.S. Constitution and violates the "Oath of Office" to provide back door amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, from around the planet at the expense of the rights of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

    Leadership Statement on the 25th Amendment

    "The combined effect of our national disintegration, and the lack of calm, reasonable leadership in our institutions, is in many cases becoming too great a stress for many to carry. We see it most clearly in our babbling president, who is obviously losing it. The reality is, we are destroying ourselves; so the question becomes, how will we deal with that reality?"

    The black community continues to be the most unrepresented, misrepresented, void of competent representation, poverty stricken, un-American community within the U.S.

    It is not in the best interest of Caucasians, Hispanics, Koreans, Chinese, Filipino, Jewish, Vietnamese, etc., etc., etc., American citizens to be the first to step up to the plate to uphold the U.S. Constitution, a respective State Constitution, the rule of law, tort practice, etc., etc., to serve any U.S. born descendant of slavery. This duty to be the first to competently serve U.S. born blacks rests with our own black elected officials, lawyers, judges, journalists, etc., etc.

    When our own black elected officials, lawyers, journalists, so called university educated in positions of influence fail to respect the U.S. Constitution, the 14th amendment, a respective State Constitution…..it makes it easier for U.S. born blacks to become fodder for the system…Fodder such as unearned jail/prison time, execution of innocent men and women on Death row, contempt for and violation of property rights, breaking up law abiding black families for profit, maiming or killing of innocent black men or women with impunity, un-Equal Justice Under the Law to take place, etc., etc.

    President Barack Obama and/or elected black leaders are doing an outstanding job of destroying his or her own credibility through having contempt for the oath of office, contempt for the Constitution, etc., etc.

    …..which in some instances has resulted in long standing black Democratic Party members abandoning the Democratic Party to become members of the Republican Party, the Tea Party, you name it!

    The black community has been controlled by the Democratic Party and it’s inept leaders, many of them being self serving and elitist black elected officials…..

    This is not to give the Republican Party a free pass, because the Republican Party has its own brand of misfits/sellout blacks to keep the black community in check, the most infamous one being U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-800575

    President Barack Obama, multiple members of the Congressional Black Clueless….AKA…the Congressional Black Caucus have been petitioned and have the power to recommend that no good U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas be impeached, but to date BO and the CBC do nothing or remain silent. President Barack Obama, the CBC, other black elected officials at the State and Local branches of government have been petitioned to use his or her influence to hold agents and officials of government accountable to our Constitution in behalf of innocent black men and women egregiously violated by government officials but to date BO, CBC, etc., etc., do nothing, remain silent, trash or ignore legitimate written or spoken petitions for redress, and/or join ranks with the perpetrators to further oppress law abiding U.S. born black men and women.

    http://www.ceyseau.net/

    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-182700

    President Barack Obama, multiple members of the Congressional Black Clueless, other elected black leaders sworn under oath and mandated by law to honor his or her oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, a respective State Constitution to serve U.S. citizens and legal immigrants, U.S. born descendants of slavery being the primary segment of U.S. citizens BO, the CBC, other elected black leaders must serve is not a reality because our own leaders are inept, disgraceful, treasonous, sometimes criminal, and/or will bend over backwards to serve illegal aliens at the expense of serving any law abiding U.S. born descendant of slavery.

    Be it Republican Party, Democratic Party affiliated or any other political party affiliation the most important duty or function of any elected official is upholding his or her sworn oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution, a respective State Constitution, etc., etc., to serve U.S. Citizens and legal immigrants, U.S. born blacks being a subset of all U.S. citizens. This is a function that is not happening as it concerns both past and contemporary elected black leadership, from today's President Barack "the Magic Negro/Food Stamp President/Illegal Alien (Kiss Up) Advocate"........And the only requirement needed to make these statements about truly inept leadership by disgraceful elected officials is factual evidence and to be a law abiding property taxpaying resident, U.S. citizen or legal immigrant, in any jurisdiction within the U.S.

    President Barack Obama, no good Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas, multiple members of the Congressional Black Clueless...AKA...The Congressional Black Caucus, and/or other elected black leaders who hold office at State, County, and City jurisdictions of government, are a disgrace to the office or essence of what it means to be an elected official or public servant.

    A mountain of gratitude to all our troops.

    Furthermore this is why it is so important that all elected officials, all public servants honor his or her sworn oath of office, or official duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution, a respective State Constitution, etc., etc.

    After all, the U.S. Constitution, a respective State Constitution are paid for with the unselfish sacrifice, blood and ultimate sacrifice, meaning the maiming or death of soldiers in every war, from the American Revolutionary War, Spanish American War, U.S. Civil War, WWI, WWII (my Dad a purple heart recipient and honorably discharged disabled combat infantry soldier draftee and Buffalo Soldier served in WWII), the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Desert Storm, the Conflict in Iraq, the conflict in Afghanistan, etc., etc.

    Finally……

    Lies Don't Keep Us Safe. Keeping Us Safe Requires Respect for the Rule of Law and the Constitution. The government's argument is untenable. “The government cannot, under any circumstance, affirmatively mislead the court” by U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney

    "Insisting on honesty as the only policy, the supreme ruled Wednesday that public employees can be punished for lying, even when they merely deny an accusation that later turns out to be true”.

    “ …….Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. 'An employee who is asked about possible wrongdoing has only two legal choices: Tell the truth or say nothing”. (LA Times, January 22, 1998.)

    ........"Tell the Truth or Say Nothing" also applies to any U.S. President, Congressional office holder, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, U.S. Attorney General, court official, court clerk, Deputy City Attorney, Judge, elected official, lawyer, journalist, etc.
