When President Obama was in office he granted amnesty to a certain class of illegal immigrants. They are the Dreamers. In so doing he said that they would not be eligible for Social Security or other free services from the American people. Why did he lie to us and can he continue to get away with it?
With many Sanctuary Cities declaring themselves today and filing lawsuits in defiance, the fabrications by the past administration take on new meaning. Illegal immigrants are receiving full benefits under these Cities policies contrary to Federal law and contrary to what the ex-President said and using Federal money to unlawfully subsidize illegals. Since the withholding of grant money to these Cities is small potatoes an enlargement of the penalties is in order.
When you lie to someone, you cheat them. When you lie to someone and cheat them and force them to pay the living expenses of others, you are a thief. Democrats have told us time and time again that whenever it looks this way, it’s not.
Go online to the Children’s Aid Society. It advises illegal immigrants to “Know your Rights”. (http://www.childrensaidsociety.org/files/upload-docs/11-Benefits_for_Immigrants-1.pdf)
The website is very specific as to the benefits illegal immigrants are rightfully entitled to under written law from the pockets of the American people. Benefits to illegals are already in place and what the ex-President told us was a willful lie.
The website clearly states: “Undocumented immigrants can obtain a tax identification (id) numberif they do not have a Social Security number, but they will not be able to take advantage of some benefits of citizen taxpayers such as receiving Social Security benefits and other tax credits.”
Public housing: In general, only legal immigrants are eligible. In the case of mixed families, the family may still qualify for public housing but the amount of the family’s housing subsidy will be reduced accordingly for those who decline to submit their documentary evidence. New York City Housing Authority (nycha) requires all tenants to verify citizenship or immigration status, but family members can avoid disclosure by “electing not to contend.”
Undocumented immigrants are not eligible for public assistance but may receive other benefits and services necessary for health and survival. Below is a list of resources for low-income undocumented immigrant families.
Workers Compensation provides weekly cash payments and covers the cost of medical treatment, including rehabilitation, for covered employees who become disabled as a result of injury (or disease) connected with their employment. It also provides payments for qualified dependents of a worker who dies from an injury or illness. The New York State Attorney General’s Office advises that Workers Compensation benefits are available to anyone who worked including those paid in cash, paid off the books, paid as independent contractors or otherwise not reported to the government as an employee. Immigration status is irrelevant.
HHC Plus: All financially eligible undocumented adults can obtain discounted medical care, including prescriptions and mental health treatment, through the Health and Hospitals Corporation. Parents
may earn up to 150% of the federal poverty level, childless adults up to 100%. Patients pay $15 per
Millions of undocumented are getting housing assistance, food stamps, free health and child delivery, school, school breakfast and lunch, Medicaid, prescriptions, unemployment payments, and the list goes on and on as if they were legal citizens. They are eligible for free college and they will receive a license to drive there, and call their friends on Obama phones.
Prospective hopeful immigrants applying for citizenship waiting on line will never get here. Fairness matters not. In other words, the next thug that pushes in front of you in line at the grocery or theatre because he/she has better things to do than listen to your gripes and protestations, give them wide berth, for they are entitled and they are special. You’re not!
What the ex-President said is irrevelant. It was the same with Obama care when he said you can keep your doctor if you want to, except, this time we all know he’s unabashed and fully capable of looking us straight in the eye and lying.
In order to get a handle on this problem, laws giving benefits to illegals have to be changed so that eligibility does not cover the worlds population and encourage them to land here and instantly go on public assistance indefinitely.
There are no consequences for defiance but there is plenty of encouragement.
In today’s competitive market environment, the body copy of your entry must lead the reader through a series of disarmingly simple thoughts.
All your supporting arguments must be communicated with simplicity and charm. And in such a way that the reader will read on. (After all, that’s a reader’s job: to read, isn’t it?) And by the time your readers have reached this point in the finished copy, you will have convinced them that you not only respect their intelligence, but you also understand their needs as consumers.
As a result of which, your entry will repay your efforts. Take your sales; simply put, they will rise. Likewise your credibility. There’s every chance your competitors will wish they’d placed this entry, not you. While your customers will have probably forgotten that your competitors even exist. Which brings us, by a somewhat circuitous route, to another small point, but one which we feel should be raised.
Long copy or short – You decide
As a marketer, you probably don’t even believe in body copy. Let alone long body copy. (Unless you have a long body yourself.) Well, truth is, who‘s to blame you? Fact is, too much long body copy is dotted with such indulgent little phrases like truth is, fact is, and who’s to blame you. Trust us: we guarantee, with a hand over our heart, that no such indulgent rubbish will appear in your entry. That’s why God gave us big blue pencils. So we can expunge every example of witted waffle.
For you, the skies will be blue, the birds will sing, and your copy will be crafted by a dedicated little man whose wife will be sitting at home, knitting, wondering why your entry demands more of her husband‘s time than it should.
But you will know why, won‘t you? You will have given her husband a chance to immortalize himself in print, writing some of the most persuasive prose on behalf of a truly enlightened purveyor of widgets. And so, while your dedicated reader, enslaved to each mellifluous paragraph, clutches his newspaper with increasing interest and intention to purchase, you can count all your increased profits and take pots of money to your bank. Sadly, this is not the real copy for this entry. But it could well be. All you have to do is look at the account executive sitting across your desk (the fellow with the lugubrious face and the calf-like eyes), and say ”Yes! Yes! Yes!“ And anything you want, body copy, dinners, women, will be yours. Couldn’t be fairer than that, could we?
