I know it just FURTHER ADVANCEMENT of the GLOBAL ECONOMIC INTEGRATION PLAN, and THAT is why I DO NOT LIKE IT!!
"Mass. fears a gap in census; With immigrants wary, undercount would hurt state" by Maria Sacchetti, Globe Staff | October 22, 2008
After years of highly publicized immigration raids, community organizers and government officials are growing increasingly worried that many immigrants will not open their doors to census takers in 2010, a scenario that could cost Massachusetts millions in federal dollars and possibly a congressional seat.
Feds are already bankrupt and this state has borrowed itself into oblivion. WTF?
Although the next census is still 17 months away, federal, state, and local authorities are stepping up efforts to reach immigrants and other hard-to-count groups. In recent weeks, the Census Bureau has opened new offices in Massachusetts and is preparing a massive media blitz in multiple languages.
With YOUR TAX DOLLARS? But they can't bail you out of foreclosure!
Officials are also planning to recruit community organizers who speak languages from Somali to Spanish and teach about the census in religious congregations and schools. Some naturalized citizens fear government officials because of violent repression in their home countries. Illegal immigrants worry about being deported, and many have been taught by local advocates not to open their doors when officials come knocking.
Immigrants have helped fuel what little growth Massachusetts has had in the past decade, and population figures are key to determining public and private investment, such as deploying funds to nonprofits, deciding where to build roads and schools, even where to put a
That about says it all, doesn't it? Apparently, LEGAL, NATIVE CITIZENS don't matter one fucking wit! No one REACHING OUT to US!!!!
City and state officials say that every federal dollar is crucial as the state makes dramatic budget cuts. Boston, Chelsea, and other cities and towns have complained for years that an undercount of immigrants has deprived them of funding.
Of course, "flushing . . . millions of dollars away supporting a highly profitable industry" when it comes to $300 million in taxpayer dollars for Hollywood is o.k., even as the price of a school lunch rises; paying $13 million for a computer software system that could have cost less than $3 million is all right because the winner was a close friend of the House speaker, even as my poorer-than-dirt district "has been struggling to close a $2 million budget gap."; the lottery shelling out "millions of dollars" for sports tickets for "lottery officials, their family members, and friends" is fine, even as schools are closing; making interest payments to banks to the tune of "a staggering $22 billion" for the Big Pit, as we call it around here, is required, even as bridges are neglected across the state; and again, paying off banks like UBS, who can "demand repayment of an additional $2 million a month beginning in January" while also receiving a "$179 million payment," while the state pension fund loses $1 billion dollars -- which still didn't stop the executive director from carving himself a nice "$64,000 bonus on top of his $322,000 annual salary."
Oh, and did I not mention the $1 BILLION dollar giveaway to the pharmaceutical corporations, even though "it's never been easy to turn a profit in biotech?" Flush that money away, too, taxpayer. Of course, the war looters were next in line for a handout. And should the state be appropriating money for a "multimillion-dollar reconstruction" of golf courses?
Oh, about those immigrants:
"200 pack meeting on immigration
More than 200 people turned out last night at Chelsea High School for the state's first town-hall-style meeting on how to better integrate immigrants into Massachusetts cities and towns. About two dozen people testified during the two-hour session, calling for more jobs, interpreters, and English and citizenship classes.
Yeah, ummm, WHO is going to PAY FOR THAT?!! It sure as hell better not be the TAXPAYER!!!!!!!!
Others had more personal appeals, including a Somali Muslim who said she wanted a place to pray and a Honduran woman whose son won two college scholarships but cannot use them because he is here illegally.
You GOTTA BE SHITTING ME?! As they tell our kids to go to cheaper schools, pay more, and shut others down?
The meeting was the first of six planned throughout the state, as part of an executive order Governor Deval Patrick issued over the summer (Boston Globe)."
Un-fucking-real, readers! That's why they made it a brief, huh?
You READY to BELIEVE ME?
Need one final insult, Mass. taxpayers?
See: Massachusetts Gives More Money to Hollywood
Yup, but they are going to CUT JOBS and SERVICES while telling us we need to keep the income tax!!
Don't you just get SICK of the BULLSHIT?!!!!
More than 900,000 immigrants live in Massachusetts, 14 percent of the population, according to 2006 estimates. About 1 in 5 immigrants is here illegally.
Probably more! No doubt the Globe is understating the problem.
Now the sob stories of the ILLEGALS by the agenda-promoting Boston Globe.
One of those neighborhoods with a low return rate in the 2000 census is a triangular swath of land in Chelsea, steps from a bustling downtown filled with bakeries, banks, and a bus stop crowded with workers. Hundreds of people live in the yellow and red brick rowhouses that line the streets, inches apart. They shop at the nearby Market Basket and send their children to school.
A recent visit showed the fears census takers will face. A 19-year-old baby sitter from Guatemala froze in alarm on her doorstep when a reporter asked if she would answer census takers' questions when they come to her neighborhood. She would not give her name because she is here illegally.
"No," she said flatly in Spanish, waving her hands. "With all that has happened with immigration and everything, most of the people wouldn't open their doors."
The 19-year-old baby sitter said that she and her family had lived in the rowhouse for eight years, and that most were born in Guatemala. She would like to study, but can't afford college tuition. But she said she would not give her personal information to a government official.
Nearby, a 35-year-old painter named Francisco said he would answer their questions if they came to his home, though he is also here illegally, from El Salvador. But he would like the government to know what his community needs, from English classes to the GED classes he takes at night. --more--"
Meanwhile, OUR SCHOOLS get HAMMERED with CUTS and CLOSINGS!!!!
And it is not like AMERICAN CITIZENS are entitled to the same level of concern either, is it?
And you can SHOVE the RACIST CHARGE! Go ahead, take a look at my African labels or any on Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan or Palestine.
In fact, I OPPOSE the WORST FORM of RACISM IMAGINABLE: the ZIONIST RACISM and JEWISH SUPREMACISM of the GLOBAL ELITE!!!!! I've READ TOO MANY NEWSPAPERS to NOT SEE IT!!!
