Thread: Amnesty approved for Venezuelans

  1. #1
    Houston is right giving an explantion on amnesty.

    MIAMI " Five Republican congressmen asked President Bush on Monday to provide temporary legal status to Venezuelans in the country illegally for what they contend is an increase in political persecutions under Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

    The five sent a letter to Bush asking him to order the Department of Homeland Security to temporarily stop deporting Venezuelans.

    "We strongly believe that the Chavez government in Venezuela at this time is persecuting its citizens for their political views," wrote Reps. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart, Connie Mack and Jerry Weller. Weller is from Illinois; the rest are from Florida.

    The legislators asked that alternatively, Bush grant expedited asylum and work-permit requests to eligible Venezuelans, as was done for Nicaraguans who left their country after the leftist Sandinista government took power in the 1980s.

    The proposal for Venezuelans would be similar to the temporary protected status given to Nicaraguans and Hondurans after Hurricane Mitch in 1998 and to Salvadorans following an earthquake in 2001.

    The government has repeatedly extended the legal stay of citizens from those countries who were in the U.S. at the time of the disasters. Immigrants from Burundi, Somalia, Sudan, and Liberia also have the protected status.

    The Venezuelan Congress recently gave Chavez special powers to decree laws for 18 months, and he has threatened to expropriate supermarkets, stores and other businesses caught hoarding food or speculating on prices following reports of more than 17 percent inflation. Chavez has nationalized Venezuela's largest telecommunications company and the electricity sector, though analysts say the government has paid fair market prices for both.

    Between 2000 and 2005, the number of Venezuelans living in the U.S. doubled to about 160,000, according to the U.S. Census. Nearly half live in Florida.

    Another 400,000 Venezuelans came to the United States in 2005 on business and tourism visas. It is unclear how many stayed. About 50 percent of asylum applications are approved, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

    This illegal alien can stay (and sit)

    Dockworkers at Port Everglades found a stowaway last week in a shipping container from Venezuela, but immigration services won't be getting involved. The stowaway, a 3-month-old dog, apparently survived a six-day trip from Maracaibo, Venezuela. "We opened the container and the dog started running out," dock supervisor Rene Pedraza told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Just started looking for food and water."

    (The lucky little rascal had heard about our reform bill. Since he's not going to be penalized he'll be able to petition for his owners in the future. Smart little rascal from Venezuala! What kind of "dogma" is that?) Gotta love it!

    here we go again, accepting foreign trash and from an unfriendly country no less. These venezuelans are cowards just like the cubans, they talk loud when they are outside those black holes they call countries, but they are nice and quiet in front of chavez and castro. I remember those central americans ivading california back in the 1980's, it was horrible! they are all criminals, they bring their nasty habits over here, they practically changed our life style and way of doing thing. Enough already!!!

    and of course they went straight to Welfare, social security, medi-cal, got free housing, food, etc. they have like 15 puppies who invade our schools. I would see these central americans stealing our telephone numbers and then selling them in the streets. Many got stuck with thousand dollar bills every month and this is just one example of the criminal activities these sub human bring with them like contagious diseases.
