Inhumane Humanity

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville

Report: Illegal Immigration in US Sees Big Drop

I give up. From this point forward, I'm reporting PURE LOGIC. The way LOGIC is supposed to be reported!!! THE TRUE LOGIC, THE WHOLE LOGIC, NOTHING BUT THE LOGIC, SO HELP ME GODDAMMIT! From the morons at AOL News:"Report: Illegal Immigration in US Sees Big DropUpdated: 6 hours 14 minutes ago" AOL News "(Sept. 2) -- With immigration as a hot-button issue ahead of this year's midterm elections, a new report shows that the number of illegal immigrants to the U.S. fell last year in its first and biggest drop in two decades.

There were 11.1 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally in March 2009, down from a peak of 12 million two years earlier, the Pew Hispanic Center said in a report issued Wednesday. From 2007 to 2009, the number of illegals entering the country shrank to about 300,000 per year, down by nearly two-thirds from the estimated 850,000 per year from March 2000 to March 2005.

"The decrease represents the first significant reversal in the growth of this population over the past two decades," the report said. The biggest drop -- 22 percent from 2007 to 2009 -- was in the number of unauthorized immigrants from Latin American countries other than Mexico, it said. And the decline was most apparent along the United States' Southeast coast -- Florida, Virginia, Delaware and Georgia -- as well as in Western mountain states like Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Utah. That finding shows that despite Arizona's controversial new immigration law, as well as stepped-up immigration enforcement along America's Southwestern border, there hasn't been a mass exodus of Mexicans fleeing the U.S. for their home country.That's even despite a sour U.S. economy where work opportunities for Mexicans have been fewer than in previous years.

"They are settled here," Pia M. Orrenius, a senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, told The New York Times. "It is going to take more than a business cycle for them to move back to Mexico."

The report also shows that a year’s long debate over immigration in Arizona, which resulted in a tougher new law passed earlier this year, didn't have a huge impact on the number of illegal immigrants there. Arizona's new law allows police to question suspected illegal’s about their immigration status, but the measure is on hold pending legal challenges.

The state was among several that saw decreasing populations of unauthorized immigrants, but it didn't have the highest number.

The Pew (as in damned smelly) report doesn't give definitive reasons for the immigration drop but cites possible contributing factors as the weakened U.S. economy and increased difficulties in crossing the Southern U.S. border.

"They're certainly acting together," Jeffrey Passel, a senior demographer who co-wrote the report, told The Associated Press. He said it's getting increasingly more expensive and dangerous for illegal immigrants to cross into the U.S., and they have less incentive to do so in the languishing U.S. job market.

"Jobs are scarce, and the jobs we can find are more difficult to get because bosses want to see your immigration documents,'' Teresa Guevara, an undocumented Mexican immigrant to Florida, told The Miami Herald.

The U.S. government also credited its own border-tightening measures as contributing to the illegal immigration drop.

"This administration's unprecedented commitment of manpower, technology and infrastructure to the Southwest border has been a major factor in this dramatic drop in illegal crossings,'' said Homeland Security deputy press secretary Matt Chandler, according to the Herald.

The Pew report is based mostly on census data. The center estimated the number of illegal immigrants by subtracting the number of legal, documented immigrants from the total number of foreign-born people living in the country, it said." Oh my god!!!! Could it be that the economy in the U.S. is of no longer interest to the immigrants from south of the U.S./Mexican Border??? FUCK!! Why in hell would immigrants from Mexico chance death, capture, rape and enslavement to sneak across the Sonora Desert for shit-hole jobs they could secure in Mexico for jesus cristo h?????

Does it ever end? The Main Stream Media coloring the news to the point of absurdity???

Your economy is in the smelly-damned out-house and even the Mexicans are smart enough to avoid us. Why aren't you smart enough to analyze the truth related to the drop in illegal immigration? You foolish, dumbass Yankees!!

Fucking Morons!!!!


  1. Mean while the number of deaths in the desert by illegal border crossers keeps rising.
    It is well above last years rate.
    Many are from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
    We will now militarize the border.
    Lots of money for the Corps to be made in this scheme.
    Instead of abolishing this childish war on drugs.
    Instead of having a humane comprehensive immigration reform.
    Lets just give the Corps some more of the money that we do not have.

  2. RZ. I love your thoughts. You are, without doubt my main man. My wondrous resonence among foolishiness

    But our God, who must give up here, my old friend, the friend I cherish. I can no longer see the logical argument against the insidious, the mindless, the bullshit purveyed amongst the morons of blogging gubmit, corrupt minds with the sole purpose to destroy our life, our voice, our world, our virtuous vision for the future

    Like you, my eternal mate, I feel the few who have fought them until our ammunition is dry, till our souls are replete with emptiness of those who have bequeathed for succor but for one voice, a voice that will carry to future generations to be heard long after our voices have faded in the fogs of the past, a voice with triumph from stories of the distant past. Echoes of the eagles carried on wings of feather to our ancestors awaiting the news of the past. Seeing the words of the future? Our lives will contue, despite the imposition of the white man and his evil.

    We are a vanquished race, sadly so. Our brothers, our sisters will live on in history, amongst the white men, mixed amongst them as, our stars, or our diamonds shining for eternity amongst the bland clay, amongst of the man who wish to seek or riches. These riches that cannot be obtained, for they are riches beyond mere wealth, but of eternal love. We will see you in our Coyote Kingdome. We will see you as little people. But, our wonderful friends, we will see as the bears, the coyotes and the Wise.

  3. I drove a truck for 7 years out of L.A., part of which was South Central and East L.A.

    I befriended a boisterous, bawdy gang-banger who made ample effort in ensuring ALL knew he was a packing member of an East LA gang-banger. Gawd-awful rough people to say the least.

    One day, he invited me and my family to his house for a barbeque one weekend. I attended, but made excuses for the wife and daughter. It seems the wife was suffering from some sort of horrific disease, soon to take her life and that she was already mostly blind from said disease. And of course, my diligent daughter was there to take care of her.

    Good enough excuse, but I was so incredibly sorry I had invented it. When you get Hispanics away from the gang (if that's possible) they are warm, happy, proud and welcoming people. Family is the life (which probably accounts for much of the familial rivalry in East LA) is not unlike that of farm country in the U.S., wherein everyone sits around a massive table of food and wine, everyone enjoying themselves beyond politics and bullshit. Smiles and laughter punctuating the afternoon.

    I couldn't help but picture a family nestled around the eucalyptus trees in the cool ocean breeze, enjoying one another. A land rightfully theirs, partying with eyes as black as coal ready to ignite in a flame of passion, I fell in love with the Mexican family that night and even learned the social background of their turf wars.

    We have so much to learn from those who live south of the border, from a civilization not unlike our own, steeped in tradition of love and unity. Standing around eating watermelon, and the wonderful dishes of their culture while the cool breeze flows through their light shirts, smiles from ear to ear showing their beautiful rows of whit teeth.

    What could be better?

  4. Oh no.
    Boyle Heights. LOL
    I grew up around Echo Park, Elysian Park, and other Barrios. LOL
    I was the only white boy around.
    I know downtown L.A. like the back of my hand. I graduated from high School in 1969. Used to low ride Whittier Blvd. in my VW bug. LOL
    Small world.

  5. Just too cool RZ, too cool.

    There was a small Mexican food drive up on Soto Street we all loved. Incredible food and it wasn't too far from the docks, so after a routine radio all the others "I'm here." Of course we all know where "is" was, so shortly there were about 10-12 trucks in the parking lot and the street. Oh man they loved he first truck as it meant more were on the way. They loved us too. Of course! How could they not like 12-13 tan shining beach faces in shorts and short sleeves? Or so we thought!

    One day, we stopped and ordered the usual, but something was amiss. BIG TIME!!!! The people inside were oriental. No big deal we said, surely they knew how to cook Mexican food!


    My burrito had fried rice, bean sprouts, water chestnuts and celery in it and my compadres’ meals were even stranger.

    We sat down to eat on our regular bench to eat, but we were laughing so goddamned hard we couldn't eat.

    But you know what? We continued o go there. The atmosphere was exceptional an what the hell - fast Mexican food is fast Mexican food.
