When you dont elect judges....

When you dont elect judges.....
Illegal immigration control specialist Donna Locke has contacted me with a closer look at the people who keep our judges in office since we are not allowed to elect them. Do these people who review judges bring a bias or are they completely neutral and better then the average voter as some suggest? You decide.
The following is a guest piece by Donna Locke.
Let's look at those recent court-panel appointments in Tennessee,
We see that Renata Soto, co-founder and executive director of Conexion Americas in Nashville, http://conamericas.com/, has been appointed to Tennessee's Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission, which evaluates appellate-level judges up for re-election.
Conexion Americas, we see via its aptly named URL, http://conamericas.com/ContentPage.a...1&GroupId=4197, is a "proud affiliate" of the National Council of La Raza, http://www.nclr.org/, a major, heavily-funded champion of illegal migration from Latin American countries into the United States. NCLR, which I consider a truly subversive, hateful endeavor, has never met a U.S. immigration law it didn't try to undermine and subvert.
"The National Council of La Raza bills itself as a 'Latino civil rights organizationů[that] works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans.' In reality, the organization has long been at the forefront of the effort to stop all meaningful immigration enforcement measures and has been a powerful lobbying force for amnesty and expanding immigration." -- Federation for American Immigration Reform,
What exactly are they doing over at Conexion Americas? Their overt mission could be summarized as assisting the integration of Hispanics into Tennessee. The org provides a number of services to that end. On the "Our Guiding Values" page on Conexion's Web site, we read:
"We believe that the process of integration demands our diligent effort to understand, participate in and contribute to our host community while embracing, sharing and maintaining our cultural heritage." Hmm.
"We believe making services available to immigrants, regardless of their immigration status, is not only desirable in terms of human and social development, but also is a fair response of the host community in recognition for the contributions of immigrants." Got it.
We know from news reports that Renata Soto has organized and spoken up in solidarity with rallies by and for illegal aliens in Tennessee. For example, according to those reports, in 2006 Soto helped organize participation in Tennessee for "A Day Without Immigrants," a day of nationwide work-walkouts, rallies, and marches for immigrant "rights" (or "demands" as the case may be).
A May 2, 2006, Shelbyville Times-Gazette story headlined "Little impact seen locally from Latino walkout" supplies this information:
"Still, organizer Renata Soto, a native of Costa Rica, said, 'We are appreciative of our host community that we have adopted as our new home, and all we ask is the right to work legally and be recognized as workers that are essential to this economy.'
In Chattanooga, City Council member Manuel Rico, a son of Mexican parents, said he disagreed with the event. He said illegal immigrants should not be creating a spectacle.
'They are here illegally ... If they are going to be here they should just mind their own business. It hurts all the brown people,' he said. 'Everybody paints us with the same brush.'
Rico, who said he was born and raised in Texas, said immigrants 'need to learn the language and learn our laws.'"
According to its Web site, Conexion Americas provides "information and referral" services to immigrants. I wonder if this is like the services provided to fresh illegal arrivals by an Atlanta-based Mexican consul general, who secretly (though recorded by off-duty INS officers) advised fresh illegal arrivals on how to evade our laws and how to tap into every freebie, taxpayer- and/or corporate-funded and otherwise -- with plenty of innocuous-sounding assistance agencies to back him up.
Information and referral. Services like that. We discovered that illegal aliens and the Mexican government know our welfare system and other "services" better than we do. After all, we are only the "host."
Well, let's look at federal law. We may be the only ones doing that. Specifically, Section 274 of the Immigration and Nationality Act [8 U.S.C. 1324].
Sec. 274. [8 U.S.C. 1324]
(a) Criminal Penalties.-
(1) (A) Any person who-
(iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law, shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B); or
(v) 1/ (I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or
(II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,
(B) A person who violates subparagraph (A) shall, for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs-
(i) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(i) or (v)(I) 2/ or in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(ii), (iii), or (iv) in which the offense was done for the purpose of commercial advantage or private financial gain, 3/ be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned not more than 10years, or both;
(ii) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(ii), (iii), (iv), or (v)(II), 4/ be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both;
(iii) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(i), (ii), (iii), (iv), or (v) 5/ during and in relation to which the person causes serious bodily injury (as defined in section 1365 of title 18, United States Code) to, or places in jeopardy the life of, any person, be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned not more than 20years, or both; and
(iv) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(i), (ii), (iii), (iv), or (v) resulting in the death of any person, be punished by death or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, fined under title 18, United States Code, or both.
