Passport Stamp

Thanks Claire G. for passing this along! It’s exactly what the Real America needs: Patriots taking a hard look in the mirror, past their so-called “citizenship,” past their “right” to be here, and going back to the real land of their family’s Baby Zero!


Self-Deportation Interview with Edward D. Smith

Thanks, Edward Daniel Smith for supporting our Patriotic Cause!

Daniel D. Portado sends “Cease and Desist” notice to “I Invented Self-Deportation”

Patriots: We have just received a Cease and Desist notice from Radical right wing Mexican-American activist Daniel D. Portado, founder of HALTO (Hispanics Against Liberal Takeover), citing his exclusive copyright on the term Self-Deportation. “Daniel D. Portado invented Self Deportation in 1994,” he wrote, “when your hip accessories were wet diapers and a chupon!” We are not sure what a “chuppon” is (is it like a Clap-On/Clap-Off?), but Mr. D. Portado seems very serious indeed. Although his concept of Self Deportation applied, like Mitt Romney’s, to Hispanic immigrants only, he is outraged, saying: “Mojados take everything, but not Daniel’s wonderful ideas. SELF-DEPORTATION is mine! Now DEPORT YOURSELF!”

Luckily for us, that’s the idea.

Here’s an excerpt of a 1996 episode of This American Life that featured Mr. D. Portado:

Man:Hey, Pedro. Go back to Mexico, stop taking our jobs, and stop looking at my daughter!

Daniel D. Portado: Immigrants, are you tired of being pushed around in America? Well, don’t sit on your serape. Do something about it. Join the conservative political action group HALTO– Hispanics Against Liberal Takeover.
Announcer 1: HALTO was formed by Mexicali karaoke lounge sensation Daniel D. Portado as a way to spread California Governor Pete Wilson’s message of self-deportation to a national audience.
Daniel D. Portado: I am the chairman of HALTO, Daniel D. Portado. What is self-deportation, you ask? Think of it as a permanent vacation. Just imagine, in one easy step, you can avoid all this crazy anti-immigrant harassment in America. How? Self-deportation. Just imagine yourself on the beach, in Mazatlan, relaxed, tension-free. Immigrants, join HALTO today and see your homeland tomorrow.
Announcer 1: Self-deportation is a trademark of Hispanics Against Liberal Takeover. Subject agrees to voluntarily repatriate to native land or Mexico, whichever is nearest. All self-deportations are final. No exchanges or refunds. Tickets are one way only.
Here is an interview he gave recently: “Daniel D. Portado: The Original Self-Deportationist“, and Rachel Maddow mentions the case here.

En el tema migratorio siempre hay algo nuevo, sorprendente o simplemente patético. Ahora surgió por internet un movimiento en pro de la autodeportación. Se trata de Patriots for Self-Deportation, en el cual se invita a todos aquellos descendientes de inmigrantes, sin importar si son de dónde hayan venido o si son de tercera o cuarta generación, a que hagan patria y se autodeporten si descubren que alguno de sus ancestros llegó al país indocumentado. El movimiento es patrocinado por un tal Alex Key que recientemente descrubrió que su bisabuelo vino ilegalmente a Estados Unidos desde Polonia. Ante semejante hallazgo, el sujeto dice que ahora se deportará a Polonia y que iniciará el trámite para obtener la ciudadanía estadounidense. No cabe duda que no sabe ni lo que dice. Vea el video:

¿Ya vio el video? Bueno, Ahora comparta con nosotros su oponión. Lo mejor de su propuesta son los comentarios de algunos que apenas se enteran que entre los indocumentados también hay europeos.

Y el detalle es que no está sólo. Mitt Romney, aspirante presidencial republicano a la Casa Blanca,cree que los indocumentados harán fila para su plan de autodeportación. Tras 18 debates entre los aspirantes a la candidatura presidencial republicana, Romney ha salido con la solución más risible e inviable para la inmigración ilegal: la “autodeportación”. Esa idea surgió la noche del lunes durante el primero de dos debates que los candidatos republicanos tendrán en Florida de cara a las primarias del próximo 31 de enero, y de inmediato suscitó una andanada de reacciones en las redes sociales en internet.

Pasando a cosas más serias, partidarios y detractores de la polémica ley antiinmigrante de Arizonaestán enfrentados de nuevo luego que legisladores demócratas dijeran que trabajan para anular la medida. La iniciativa es por parte del senador demócrata Steve Gallardo, quien propondrá anular la ley por que divide y daña la reputación del estado. Qué bueno, pero eso lo hubieran hecho antes.

En el mismo sentido trabajan los demócratas de Georgia, que también buscarán revocar la ley antiinmigrante de ese estado. La tarea no será fácil, pues la Asamblea General es dominada por los republicanos, pero no hay peor lucha que la que no se hace. La iniciativa es de los representantes Pedro Marín y Lynmore James.

Interesante el análisis presentado por Carlos Harrison sobre el voto cubanoamericano de Florida. Apoyado en otras fuentes, el texto dice que otros grupos de sudamericanos o los cubanoamericanos más jóvenes tienden a votar por los demócratas, dependiendo del tema. Sin embargo, considera que la tradición terminará por imponerse y que Florida votará por Mitt Romney en las primarias del 31 de enero. ¿Será que sí?

Otra propuesta que llama la atención es la hecha por el senador demócrata Charles Schumer, quien este martes pidió al Departamento de Seguridad Nacional que permita trabajar durante un año a los inmigrantes cuyos procesos de deportación terminen anulados durante una revisión nacional de deportaciones que comenzó en diciembre. Veremos qué pasa.

Y bueno, qué más se puede decir de Mitt Romney y su inflexible postura sobre inmigración. De cualquier forma, si le interesa, aquí le dejo dos puntos de vista sobre el que hasta hace poco era el favorito a ganar la nominación republicana a la presidencia de EEUU. Una es de Maribel Hastings, y la otra es de Rafael Prieto Zartha.

Patriots, how do you feel about this article?

Kelly McParland: Tea Party ‘patriots’ urge Americans to deport themselves

  Jan 25, 2012 – 12:29 PM ET | Last Updated: Jan 25, 2012 6:36 PM ET

Alex Kaye is feeling guilty about the fact his great-grandfather, also named Alex, immigrated illegally from Poland to work in a Chicago packing plant. He suspects great-grandfather Alex snuck in through Canada to avoid a literacy test (evidently we didn’t care about literacy back them), and he feels it is “kind of shameful” that all the other Kayes (who weren’t named Kaye at the time, being Polish) have been living in the U.S. on false pretenses ever since.

So, next July 4 he’s “self-deporting” himself back to Poland, where he intends to hang out for a while, and then re-apply to immigrate “the right way.”

You can watch Alex explain himself on his YouTube video, where he comes across a bit like a U.S. version of Hugh Grant, all mannerly and apologetic. Alex is being championed by a group that calls itself  Patriots for Self-Deportation, which — if it’s not an elaborate hoax — is hoping the idea catches on, though mainly with newly arrived Mexicans rather than fourth- or fifth- generation Poles with identity problems. On Monday the group got a boost when Republican candidate Mitt Romney declared his support for self-deportation as a means of slowing illegal immigration.

Like the Patriots, Romney is mainly hoping some of the millions of Mexicans in the country illegally will skedaddle back across the Rio Grande, all on their own initiative. To give them a push, states like Arizona and Alabama have been introducing punitive laws that seek to make life as miserable as possible for illegals. Mr. Romney’s idea isn’t quite as harsh: legal workers would be issued cards, subject to a national verification system, to show to employers. People without cards couldn’t get jobs, so eventually would get so hard up they’d kick themselves out. (If, of course, they don’t turn to crime, drugs or go to work for unscrupulous employers, which a lot do now anyway.)

The Patriots — which says it’s a “growing force within the Tea Party — were quite pleased at Mr. Romney’s support. They have a web site set up to help answer questions, like “How can I know if ancestors of mine came here legally?”, “If I suspect that an ancestor should never have received citizenship, am I morally obliged to do something about it?” and “If several of my ancestors came over illegally, how do I decide which country of origin to return to?”

“America belongs to REAL Americans,” it says, and everyone else should get lost, pronto.

Predictably, there’s been some blowback, presumably from less patriotic Americans. Several pointed out that, as Alex was born in the U.S., he’s legally an American citizen and it doesn’t matter what his great-grandpa did. Some native Americans have suggested that everyone going back to the Mayflower is there without their approval, and want to know when they’ll be leaving. There’s also the small matter of  whether Poland has been asked whether it wants a few million Americans showing up suddenly because someone they never met didn’t fill out Form 32-C before landing at Ellis Island at the turn of the last century. Who knows, there might be a few from Ireland and Italy who weren’t exactly punctillious about their paperwork as well.

Alex hasn’t been getting a lot of sympathy. “What about your great-grandfather’s great-grandfather? Are you sure he was legal in Poland?” someone commented on his YouTube video. A guy named Lewis is worried that his ancestors came from the “Austro-Hungarian Empire” and he’d have to deport himself to a country that didn’t exist any more. The same problem could arise for other Poles like Alex: which “Poland” do they deport themselves to, given that big chunks have been added and subtracted over the centuries.  Is there an “original” Poland he can apply to?

So many questions.  Fortunately, Patriots for Self-Deportation doesn’t sweat the details. “US citizenship is for those who can show PROOF their original ancestors were here legally. All illegals and descendants of illegals are here ILLEGALLY and must be DEPORTED at once,” it says. So if you don’t have documents, out you go. And, as Alex has found, a birth certificate won’t do.
