Illegal Alien Day Care and Labor Center in Portland is Proposed

“The cost of being a sanctuary city is borne by the tax payers to fulfill the “leaders'” unrealistic and corrosive dreams. So just pony up, shut up, and go lie down by your bowl.”
Victoria Taft, June 11, 2007

From Portland Indymedia comes word that City of Portland taxpayers will be called on to spend $200,000 in seed money and much more in operating costs (including someone to operate it–PERS job perhaps?) to fund a day labor center for Portland area illegal aliens. Currently the dozens of men who congregate around a 7/11 store and Wentworth Chevrolet at 6th and SE Burnside/Ankeny spend their time waiting for the driver of a pick up to come by and give them a job.
So now we taxpayers are being asked to foot the bill to find jobs for people, many of whom, are in this country and working here illegally? We’re asked to set up a job center (with administration) when they do it for free, illegally, on a Portland street corner? Wha? Why don’t we just ask the city to have the police do their jobs?

From the forces behind this effort come these reasons why (my emphasis) added.

The reasoning behind VOZ’s efforts are based on a survey of the people most directly involved. “Before we started this process with the city, we started our own research,” Paramo noted. “We did small questionnaires with the day laborers. We went to the corners, and I believe I made over a hundred questionnaires for the people. More than 90 percent approved, and say they will move to a work center.

The survey was performed over a one-month period last year in a totally democratic fashion, Paramo said. “(The day labor center) is what we want to work for. That’s because, we don’t want to do something that they don’t want. They are the ones that decided what to do.”

Victoria adds: And they don’t know if it will work so they work hard to make sure we go out of our way to find illegal aliens jobs!

VOZ Director Sosa …”The key part is work. It’s the work! To provide a day labor center and guarantee some work.” The mere existence of a day labor center, therefore, will not necessarily solve the current tensions. “It’s a risk,” Sosa declared. “Many people, they think a day labor center is a solution. ‘Nobody’s going to go (back) outside.’ And it’s not true.”

*OREGON CALL TO ACTION and:The Next Illegal Immigration Battle Starts With the Democrats

TIME IS RUNNING OUT! The Oregon State Legislature will end this session on June 29th and then it will be TWO Years for another chance to STOP Illegal “Immigration” in Oregon. Thanks to the Oregon Republicans, I have secured the help needed to place a Full Page Ad in the Statesman-Journal for Sunday the 17th AND also OR. Rep. Senators are bringing the PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP to VOTE BILL to the Floor of the OR. Senate this Wednesday the 13th! To coordinate our efforts and give a big push, PLEASE Write a Letter to the Editor now. S-J, Oregonian, Register-Guard..

Contact your State Senator here. Contact your State Representative here.

Senator Jon Kyl in Saturday’s WSJ (see article here) on the political realities of getting border enforcement first before reorganizing the visa process:

“As a practical matter, from a political standpoint, you can’t have enforcement first. Democrats won’t allow it,” Mr. Kyl says. “You have to combine some things that they want along with the stronger enforcement.”

But that doesn’t mean you must completely give in to the demands of the dems. In fact, you need to remember boys that the people who turned the bus around on the illegal immigration bill are voting in 2008. Don’t forget that.
