Immigrants Use Key Words To Get Refugee Status

From Fox News Phoenix affiliate, KSAZ:

Loophole: People are being told to use "key words" to cross border

August 10, 2013

SAN DIEGO – A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States. Immigrants are being taught to use "key words and phrases" to be allowed to enter and stay in the country.

Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: "credible fear" of the drug cartels. So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.

"They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they  will be allowed into the country," said a person who did not want to be identified on camera. "We are being overwhelmed."

Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, "This will swamp the system."

"To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the  past," he adds.  "There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don’t want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail."

Nunez says, "It’s a huge loophole."

It’s not a loophole if it’s intentional. After all, what did they expect after the DHS "tentatively approved" nine asylum requests from Mexico?

Mexican activists released from custody in Arizona

August 7, 2013

Nine activists arrested after attempting to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S. in protest of American immigration policy were released Wednesday from federal custody in Arizona…

Earlier this week, the Homeland Security Department tentatively approved asylum requests for the nine immigrants. The department ruled the nine have a "credible fear" of being persecuted if they are sent back to Mexico

What a coincidence, huh?

Meanwhile, highly productive Americans are heading in the other direction.

U.S. Expats Balk at Tax Law

American Citizen Renunciations Are Soaring

By MARIKO SANCHANTA And JASON CHOW |   August 12, 2013

HONG KONG—The U.S.’s crackdown on global tax evaders is leading to a record number of people renouncing their citizenship, and its effects are being felt keenly in Asia—now the world’s wealthiest region by household assets.

A growing number of wealthy Americans in Asia—and others with green cards—are exploring whether to renounce their U.S. citizenship or give up their green cards to avoid onerous tax obligations.

Globally, more U.S. citizens have renounced their citizenship in the first and second quarters than all of 2012 combined, and 2013 is already on track to becoming a record year for renunciations. A total of 1,130 names appeared on the latest list of renunciations from the Internal Revenue Service, according to Andrew Mitchel, a tax lawyer who tracks the data. That is far above the previous high of 679, set in the first quarter, and more than were reported in all of 2012.

While those numbers are still a fraction of the estimated six million Americans living abroad, lawyers say the main trigger for cutting ties with U.S. recently is the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or Fatca, which requires foreign institutions to disclose the overseas assets of U.S. green-card holders and citizens to the U.S. government…

"When I became an immigration lawyer 30 years ago, people really were excited about going to America. Now, more than half of my clients are people thinking of other alternatives rather than people seeking to immigrate to America," said Eugene Chow, the principal of Chow King & Associates.

In Hong Kong, where the individual tax rate is capped at 15%, becoming a citizen is an attractive prospect…

After filing their taxes, many… are giving up their green cards and U.S. citizenship, deeming the tax liability to be too onerous. Among them are American expatriates who see their Singaporean and Hong Kong peers paying a far lower income tax and aren’t subject to capital gains taxes…

How long will it be before Democrats demand that we don’t let people leave the country. At least with too much money.

    I’ve been putting this to the test and I do know for a fact that many illegals are living in terror of the most notorious Mexican gangs in the state. But, they are not like the old illegals that once came to our country who knew how to say “Thank You” when you help them out. ‘Thank You’ is not in their vocabulary with the exception of rare occasions. But, it’s not a color or race issue. It’s a culture issue that they don’t say “Thank You” for anything they are given.

    Some friends of mine years ago did church missionary deep in Mexico where they weren’t allowed bibles and didn’t know how to use a stove. The later moved on our side of the border Allen(?) Texas a border town and they quit helping the Mexicans because they were as fat and lazy as Americans and demanded food all the time as if we owed it to them. It’s not a color or race issue. It’s a culture issue.
