Ask Santana

According to (2011 The Associated Press)," Santana said in an impromptu news conference after the ceremony. "This is about fear. Stop shucking and jiving. People are afraid we're going to steal your job. No we aren't. You're not going to change sheets and clean toilets."  These are the two things I have against Mr. Santana’s statement 1st, like most anti-immigration advocates, he never addresses the immigration laws of other countries – particularly Mexico’s, or Costa Rica’s. However, Mexican authorities are known for their brutality and their refusal to allow illegal immigrants to protest against their treatment by Mexican authorities; in fact, Mexico’s, Arizona and Atlanta’s are similar. But, their similarities end with their actions; our government allows illegal immigrants to protest against their own treatment, and does not engage in the brutality that Mexico utilizes against them when they do so. These are excerpts from articles outlining both Mexico’…
The Eco-sphere vs. BP Why BP’s Oil Spill is a Case for Right of Eminent Domain by US Government By: Jabrim Raven Allen
Does BP’s $2 billion fund truly amount to a “shake down” of its financial assets by the President as stated by GOP Rep. Joe Barton, or just a slap on the wrist? Isn’t it BP that should be apologizing to both Great Britain and the United States; while offering to make amends for lives lost during the initial disaster and creating the greatest man-made disaster in both US and British histories? Politically, if the US were to exercise its right of “Eminent Domain” it would lose socio-political and economic confluence with Britain; thus further endangering its relationship with Britain which could affect its military campaign in Afghanistan; yet if Britain were to acknowledge the US’s right of “Eminent Domain” over BP, it could result in a loss of international prestige for Britain and endanger her own economic recovery due to the rest of her oil companies reputations bei…
Hotel California Condemned Till Further Notice
Despite what has been said, we do not have to utilize billions of dollars to resolve our issues in California. First, let’s consider our immigration policies; if we were to actually enforce them, it would mean creating a split within the Left and siding with the Right. Personally, I could care less about the Left and its bizarre policies of justified white guilt, paternalism and back pedaling. In Cost Rica, an individual that is not a citizen is not allowed to work for two years, and even then must receive special permission to do so. Costa Rica has created this law to protect its people from being displaced by foreigners who may possess higher levels of education or technical skills. There are other countries in South America that also possess various laws dealing with immigration, legal or illegal. Yet, the Left never speaks about these laws; it never speaks about the attempts of South Americans to protect their countries from unwanted i…
