her myriad of articles concerning the illegal alien criminal families
of Reyes/Quiroz/Hernandez (hereafter known as the Reyes Gang), Lornet
Turnbull of the Seattle
Times has made various assertions concerning the illegal alien
population in the United States. Two of those assertions are that illegal
aliens are of greater benefit to the U.S. economy than detriment; and
that the illegal alien population is roughly 12 million.
of these assertions are, to put it bluntly, outright lies asserted by
an individual who supports the criminal illegal alien invasion of the
United States. I shall address the second assertion first as it is rather
straight-forward: In October 2007 the estimated number of illegal aliens
residing in the United States was revised. The figure went from an estimated
12 million to an estimated
38 million. Yet six months after the initial release of these revised
figures, Turnbull is still using the old figure; quite obviously to
give the criminal illegal alien invasion of the United States a less
threatening face, a less ominous presence.
to Turnbull’s assertion the illegal aliens benefit the U.S. economy.
people have become more cognizant of the sheer number of illegal aliens
residing in the United States, the question has been whether they are
a benefit or a detriment to the U.S. economy. President George Bush,
because he supports a completely open border policy (in complete contradiction
of his claim that we must secure America against terrorists), claims
they are a benefit; that they “do jobs Americans won’t do.”
truth, however, is something quite different. Americans have watched
as illegal aliens have taken jobs away from Americans in the construction
processing industry, manufacturing,
etc. These are not “jobs Americans won’t do;” these
were high-paying jobs that Americans workers have watched the wages
being depressed on because employers are hiring illegal aliens at a
lower hourly wage while Americans are left at the curb unable to find
work, watching their unemployment benefits run out with no job prospects
in sight that will pay the bills. The repercussion is two fold: 1) wages
are being depressed while American workers cannot make ends meet because
the illegal aliens have taken over the job market; and 2) the price
of the product resulting from the depressed wage isn’t being sold
for less; it is being sold for the same price with the employer pocketing
the profit. That profit, in part, then goes to buy politicians to keep
the borders open and the flow of illegal aliens unimpeded.
illegal alien work force, depressing American wages, is very much a
part of pushing the United States into the third-world status of the
very rich and very poor with no middle class; the feudal state—the
goal of the global economy—must eradicate the middle class in
America in order to achieve absolute power and control of the masses.
That politicians like George Bush, John McCain, Barack Obama, and Hillary
Clinton don’t want to remove the 38 million illegal alien criminals
from this country is not because they do jobs Americans won’t
do but because middle class America must be destroyed for the global
third world economy to reach fruition.
counter to the claims of Bush and Company, the cost of the 38,000,000
illegal alien criminals far exceeds any economic benefit. With the criminal
illegal alien invasion has come crime (rape,
murder, sodomy, dope, racketeering, gangs)
and related costs; disease heretofore eradicated in America; degradation
of entire neighborhoods; economic recession due, in part, to the depressed
wage market; and the costs to educate, house, and address the health
issues (including the costs of anchor babies) of the criminal illegal
alien population at the expense of legal American taxpayers.
these people do nothing to better society. The picture below, taken
recently in Oceanside, California, is of an illegal alien zipping up
after relieving himself on the sidewalk along a busy street in broad
daylight. He was picked up by the Oceanside Police Department. The
following is not the exception in the illegal alien presence in the
United States. For obvious reasons, the name of this writer is being
example is how most Mexican illegal aliens urinate and defecate anywhere.
In the buildings where they live, they throw the trash outside the trash
bin, etc. I heard of one instance when they had live chickens in the
apartment. They had the chickens nesting in the kitchen cabinets. They
had removed the doors for the chickens to roost there!
my husband had open heart surgery, he shared the room with a Mexican
in the hospital. The Mexican's family visited 12 hours a day; in a
small room there were from four to six people around the man's bed.
They ate their tacos and tortillas there; the wife would lie down
on the bed next to her husband and they all used the patient's bathroom
which they made filthy instead of the guests' bathroom down the hall!
I wanted to complain, but my husband begged me not to. He felt very
vulnerable in that bed and he simply was afraid.
used to go to the Spanish Horse Show in the Los Angeles Equestrian
Center every year. It was a very elegant and beautiful event with
mostly English speaking audience. I missed one show… The next
year I went and was shocked to see all of Mexico there! Moreover,
they were selling hard liquor and one could smell metabolized booze
outdoors! When the Mexican flag was paraded there was a roar from
the crowd and just a smattering of applause for the U.S. flag. I was
scared that some gangs might start shooting. I swore never to go back.
That was five years ago.”
one need do, to realize the culture of these criminal illegal alien
invaders, is to look at pictures of the trash strewn along the American
side of the border with Mexico, where illegal aliens have crossed. According
to Lornet Turnbull, these people are seeking a better life; yet they
don’t seek to fit in anywhere they go; they expect Americans to
accept their trashy third world way of life; exemplified by all the
people living in Ana Reyes small apartment in Burien when she was picked
up by ICE.
Rubenstein of ESR Research has produced a report, The
Fiscal Impact of Immigration, in which he took a conservative look
at the cost of immigration in fifteen areas:
of Homeland Security
Department of Defense
Department of Education
Department of Justice
Department of Health and Human Services
Department of State
The Social Security Administration
Department of Labor
Department of Commerce
Department of Treasury
Energy/Environmental Protection Agency
Department of Transportation
Department of Housing and Urban Development
Department of Interior
Department of Agriculture
For the purposes here, I am going to tally an approximate conservative
estimate of the cost to the American taxpayers of the Reyes Gang of
illegal alien criminals.
Reyes’ husband walked across the border in 1988/1989; she followed
him in 1990; their two sons in 1991. In 1998 her husband walked out
and Reyes and her children moved in with Arturo Hernandez, also an illegal
alien criminal. Altogether, the Reyes Gang comprises six illegal alien
criminals: Ana Reyes, her husband (?) Quiroz, Christian Quiroz, Carlos
Quiroz, Arturo Hernandez and Luis Hernandez. How long the Hernandez
brothers have been in the United States illegally isn’t known.
to Rubenstein’s report, the combined cost (in the 15 areas noted
above) for one illegal alien for one year, is $9,139 in 2007 dollars.
This amount represents the economic impact (cost exceeding benefit)
of each illegal alien. The economic impact to American taxpayers of
six illegal aliens for one year would be $54,834 (2007 dollars).
Reyes and her husband have been here at least 17 years. Using a conservative
annual inflation rate of 2%, the approximate conservative cost of just
these two for 17 years would be $278,616. Their two illegal alien sons,
Christian and Carlos, were in the United States illegally for 16 years;
their conservative cost for those 16 years would be approximately $265,650.
Because exactly how long Arturo Hernandez and his brother, Luis, have
been in the United States illegally isn’t known, we will approximate
that time at ten years for an approximate conservative cost for the
two of them of $167,178. Just these costs total $711,444.
a word, criminal aliens are not casual lawbreakers. Most are recidivists—that
is, career criminals. The economic burden they impose on victims, including
loss of income and property, uncompensated hospital bills, and emotional
pain and suffering, has been estimated at $1.6 million per property
and assault crime offender. (Source: Anne Morrison Piehl and John J.
DiLulio, “Does Prison Pay?”)
is the conservative approximation of the number of crimes committed
by the Reyes Gang (source: Washington
Reyes: 14 
Quiroz: 1 
Hernandez: 25 
Hernandez: 3 
total, the Reyes Gang has committed at least 53 crimes, most involving
criminal traffic, non-payment of debts, and property loss or damage.
Recidivist would be an understatement. At $1.6 million per property
or assault crime offender, the Reyes Gang has racked up a conservative
approximate cost to American taxpayers of $9.6 million just in criminal
the course of the last four years, Lornet Turnbull has written a myriad
of articles for the Seattle Times concerning illegal aliens.
Unfortunately, in not one of those articles has she made any effort
to write the truth about the criminal illegal alien invasion of the
United States. Her bent has been to portray these people as just poor,
down-trodden, down-on-their-luck, underprivileged souls looking for
a better way of life.
have challenged Lornet Turnbull to write about …
- the crimes committed by the Reyes Gang;
- the cost to American taxpayers of the Reyes Gang being in
the United States illegally;
- the effect on Ana Reyes’ two daughters of her living,
out of wed-lock and in a state of adultery, with a man and bearing his
also challenged her to fill her home to capacity with these illegal
alien criminals and support them, and to walk through the barrios of
California where cops won’t even go. Not one of my challenges
has been accepted. As is usual with people like Lornet Turnbull, putting
her money, her home, and her financial security where her mouth
is isn’t in the cards; she wants to keep what she considers hers
but truly believes you should be gladly give up all that is yours to
further her agenda! She talks the talk but she doesn’t walk the
walk. In short, she’s a hypocrite!
stated, in one of her articles, that Joe Kennard, benefactor to the
Reyes Gang, has an “urge
to give back.” Maybe he should start by paying the American
taxpayers back all the money the Reyes Gang has cost the American taxpayers
in the years they have lived in the United States illegally. That sum
is, conservatively, $10.3 million. If the Reyes Gang re-enters the United
States illegally, Kennard should be charged with aiding and abetting
or complicity for moving them within walking distance of the U.S. border
after they have made it very clear that they intend to re-enter the
United States illegally.
Seattle Times owns the Yakima
Herald-Republic found in the Columbia Basin of Washington at
Yakima, where a large contingent of criminal illegal aliens live. The
Yakima Herald-Republic publishes a Spanish edition, El
Sol de Yakima, which is distributed free of charge—at least
free to the Spanish-speaking community; the cost obviously shifted to
those who pay to receive the Yakima Herald-Republic. On January
4, 2008, the Yakima Herald-Republic announced job
cuts, attributing the financial woes of the newspaper to increased
competition from the Internet.

being invaded from the south; as they lose their jobs,

year, in Seattle, a family of illegal aliens bypassed the septic tank,
running a sewer pipe to an open ditch because their septic tank backed
up and they didn’t want to fix it! They couldn’t understand
why dumping raw sewage in a ditch intended to carry water run-off wasn’t
acceptable! 3, The court records show 13 crimes; the felony crime
of registering to vote is not listed. 4, If Reyes estranged husband committed no other crimes,
he is still an illegal alien. 5, This is, at best, an approximation. The Washington
Court records listed 198 crimes under the name Arturo Hernandez. Only
those crimes committed in Yakima County from 1996 to 2001 and those
