An Arizona Resistance Update

It’s been a full year now since the Arizona Resistance first came online.  We, myself in particular, have been giving much thought as to where we started and where we are now.  There will be more on the Arizona Resistance year in review in the next couple of days on our new site.

That’s right!  We’ve moved.  The controller of the purse strings wasn’t all that impressed with this site in the beginning and wasn’t sure it was even worth our while, let alone our funds.  In the past year the monetary powers that be, has concluded that we just might be making a difference and has given me a small budget to play with.  Therefore, we now have our own domain, host, and soon to come, much more.

Please in the future find us at ArizonaResistance.net.  Those of you that link to this site, a million thanks.  If you could also link to our new home it would be greatly appreciated.  This site will remain up as a reference and archives source. 

Thank you ALL for what we consider to have been a very good year.  We hope to see you all at ArizonaResistance.net.

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Illegal Immigrants Leaving Arizona

The hard working pillars of society type illegal aliens.

It was an honor to have Texas Fred stop by this past weekend and chastise me for not posting as regularly as I had been earlier in the year.  Thank you also to many others who have sent me email and called me on the phone to make sure I’m ok.  I assure you everything is just fine.  As I’ve said a few times in previous posts, I have been absolutely swamped with work.  Even though I’ve been working 60 and 70 hour weeks, I’m grateful I haven’t lost my job to an illegal alien… yet.

I received the best Christmas present ever last week while driving to work at 4a.m.  I was listening to the CBS national news and the big story of the day was that illegal aliens were going back to Mexico for the holidays as they do every year.  But this time, many are planning on not coming back.  The talking head news babe on the radio, pointed to Arizona’s new employer sanctions law ( the recently passed Arizona HB-2779, full text of it can be read here) as the reason that the law breaking illegals no longer felt safe in Arizona.  The story has made several other main stream media outlets in the past week including USA Today’s liberal tear jerking story here.  In every report, the underlying message is there.  Unsaid, but there.  Arizona’s HB-2779 is apparently a success and, it hasn’t even taken effect yet.  We can only hope that more states feeling the social and economic strains of the largest illegal alien invasion this country has ever experienced, enact similar employer sanctions laws.  The good news on the world stage is this.  Hopefully Mexico will get a large part of it workforce back.  Maybe, the majority of those returning will have been schooled in good ole American capitalism and have a desire to start businesses and opportunity in Mexico.  Maybe, these returning Mexicans might be able to effect political change in their own corrupt government so that the might (as my Grandmother used to say) “bloom where they’re planted.”

I would like to thank each of you for all you have done this past year to support this endeavor of saving America.  From the thousands of websites in the blogoshpere trying to keep America informed as to the illegal alien invasion and the corrupt political oligarchs allowing it to happen; to the millions of Americans who have blatantly shunned the propaganda spewed by the main stream media and sought out the truth for themselves.  It’s been an eventful year for us all with many battles lost and even more won.  Continue the fight in 2008 and we might just have America back someday.

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New year to you all.

GOV’T CORRUPTION RUNS AMOK! AZ Dept. of Revenue And I.R.S. Conspire In Illegal Alien Criminality

Posted by zoo

On Phxnews.com  July 31st 2007

Do you ever wonder WHO the illegal aliens are, WHERE they live, and WHO is illegally employing them? Much of that information is in the hands of the Arizona Department of Revenue and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Apparently, these two government agencies are IMMUNE to prosecution under federal immigration statutes pertaining to “aiding and abetting”. Their role in the criminal chain starting at the White House is to either collect tax on illegally-earned wages OR assist illegal alien criminals by converting YOUR tax dollars into refund checks.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service KNOWINGLY issues “Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers” (ITIN) to illegal aliens who apply for them. The ITIN is a nine digit number (like an SSN) that ALWAYS begins with a 9 (nine). Here are some highlights of an I.R.S. form:

“WE ASSIGNED YOU AN IRS INDIVIDUAL TAXPAYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (ITIN)”

The following is true about your assigned ITIN:

It is for federal tax purposes only, for example, to file a tax return

It is not a social security number (SSN) but an identification number issued by IRS

It does not entitle you to social security benefits or the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

If you do not use ITIN to file a tax return or other federal purpose, it can be revoked

It does not change your immigration status or make you eligible to work in the United States

If you become a U.S. citizen, or legal resident alien authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services, you will be eligible to get an SSN.

In that the IRS rules specifically EXCLUDES use of the Earned Income Credit, most illegal aliens would not be subject to a “refund” and might, like everyone else, have to pay in more tax with their return. So the likelihood that illegal aliens even file a federal tax return is remote, even though that is all the ITIN is good for. It is a good bet under the Bush administration that the Earned Income Credit IS being allowed by the I.R.S. either intentionally or by massive, overwhelming fraud by filers.

Now lets bring things a little closer to home. The Arizona Department of Revenue is KNOWINGLY accepting STATE OF ARIZONA tax returns from illegal aliens and sending out taxpayers dollars in refund checks. If that raises your blood pressure, read this:

1) The returns (all “refunds”) are being predominately compiled by “Hispancic” tax preparation services, which is a growing and very profitable fraud industry

2) These state returns are being filed USING the federal ITIN, which is expressly forbidden by the IRS

3) While the IRS specifically forbids the use of the Earned Income Credit on such returns, the Arizona D.O.R. is allowing use of the Arizona equivalent, the “Family Tax Credit”, which produces a refund 99 times out of 100. Example: an illegal alien with a spouse and one child has an income of $19,000.00; state income withholding of $20.00 (that’s right – $20.00) from one year’s pay; refund from Arizona D.O.R. $75.00 with Family Tax Credit

4) There is a current trend of illegal aliens filing these returns for MULTIPLE TAX YEARS. The Mexican tax preparation services are coaching illegals to file back as far as when they crossed the border illegally into Arizona. This could be generating total refunds averaging $300-$400 or more per illegal alien “family”. “Dependents” are NOT restricted to spouse and children; they include parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and cousins, or whoever has flopped into the illegal household. There are many instances of single, illegal Mexican men, filing as “head of household” over four or five dependents. “Stepchild” or “foster child” is a popular ruse used to defraud an overwhelmed and indifferent tax authority. Of course, when you steal across the international border in 130 degree heat with nothing but a menudo fork to your name, the first thing you want to do in the new homeland is “adopt”. Isn’t it nice to know your tax dollars are supporting “drop” or “safe” houses packed to the rafters with illegal alien criminals?

5) Filed with these returns are W-2 forms from the illegal alien criminal employers, many with ZERO withholding for Arizona state tax. ALL of these W-2 forms show REAL SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS which have been stolen or “borrowed”, and which have been used by criminal employers to “report” wages to the IRS and AZ D.O.R. This demonstrates beyond any doubt that employers are KNOWINGLY employing people whose social security numbers strike up a TILT. In some instances, the names on the W-2 forms DO NOT MATCH the name of the filer on the tax return!

We all understand that treasonous cheap-labor criminal George W. Bush has full control of federal agencies, which he commands to serve his illegal cheap-labor / high profit criminal cartel. But why is an Arizona State agency allowed to be a coconspirator in the sale of America for cheap labor profits at taxpayer expense?

The Arizona Department of Revenue knows THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of illegal alien criminals by name including their illegal “dependents”. THEY KNOW WHERE THE LIVE. THEY KNOW WHERE THEY WORK. THEY KNOW WHO IS EMPLOYING THEM. THEY KNOW THEY ARE USING STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS.

Where are our Arizona state legislators while this is going on? Why isn’t the information in these filings (predominately from Maricopa county) being sent to the Maricopa county attorney and the Maricopa country sheriff’s office? Why is the Arizona Department of Revenue sending out our tax dollars in the form of “refunds” to KNOWN ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS? Why isn’t the Director of the Arizona Department of Revenue in prison? Why aren’t governor Napolitano and attorney general Goddard in prison with him? And why aren’t several thousand Arizona employers in shackles for social security fraud?

The regular, everyday citizens of America have no idea just how deep the George Bush cheap-labor criminal cartel conspiracy runs. Now we have to decide if the massive number of participants involved are suffering from good ‘ol American greed or do they represent a country fully infiltrated and saturated by Communist operatives. What better plan to destroy a country than for a Communist government regime to aid and abet a massive invasion of sovereignty and eventually thrust the country into civil war? An “immigration audit” needs to be performed on every state, county, and local government to determine the full extent of cheap-labor driven corruption and criminality. They are operating on YOUR money, and STEALING the future of your children, grandchildren, and the country your parents and their parents built.

The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 (last known calculation by Professor Donald Huddle, Rice University) was a NET (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay), $70 Billion per year. [What are the 2006 costs?]

The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) for the average illegal alien is $55,000 cost to the American taxpayer in a 5-year span. You personally pay $11,000 every year to illegal aliens.

JOBS

(per Center for Immigration Studies – September 2006):

Between 2000 and 2005, 4.1 million immigrant workers arrived in the U.S., accounting for 86% of the net increase in the total number of employed persons (16 & older), the highest share ever recorded in the U.S.  Of the 4.1 million, between 1.4 and 2.7 million are estimated to be illegal aliens. Also, between 2000 and 2005, the number of young (16 to 34) native-born men employed declined by 1.7 million – at the same time, the number of new male immigrant workers increased by 1.9 million. [Do you still believe the gov’t employment rate stats?]

ACTION:   Please share this data with elected officials, particularly those who spew the PCBS (politically correct BULLSHIT!) about all the “contributions of illegal aliens to our society” AND “our economy would collapse without them”! However, NONE of this will matter IF our borders are not secured OR Pres. Bush succeeds in abolishing them (via his SPP, NAU, NAFTA Hwy), and illegal alien murders, drug smugglers and terrorists continue to be welcomed into our country.

You should be absolutely outraged by these statistics!  Americans should DEMAND that every single damn illegal immigrant be deported immediatly!  Too many?  Can’t be done, some say?  Well, lets get started and see how many we can deport before we say it can’t be done.

If everyone would Read This  everyday, more people would demand action be taken.

To those who say, “You can’t deport us all.”  Oh, yes we can.

The Lone Protester – A Case In American Patriotism

 Terry Funderburk Protesting “International” installers

Cross posted from Freedom Folks and The Voice.

Thank you Mr. Funderburk, for having the testicular fortitude and moral conviction to do what millions should.  You sir, are a true American Patriot.

Here is Terry Funderburk’s story in his own words.

My name is Terry Funderburk. I live in Columbia, SC and have a small business in the new home construction industry here. I install copper on new homes. I have been in business for almost 20 years now and always had plenty of work lined up. Usually, I had 20 to 30 jobs lined up for the next few weeks. Last year my company grossed 176 thousand. I have 2 employees and a partner. (my son). This year though, things have gone to hell in a handbasket. Here we are almost into August and my business has grossed so far this year 18 thousand. (by this time last year we had grossed 110 grand). So whats different between this year and last year? Right, the illegal competition. Let me tell you a little story that actually happened to me this week (it still seems surreal). But it begins about a month ago. Then I stopped by a home that was being rebuilt due to a lightning strike last year I knew the homeowner, I have done 2 different copperjobs on his house before it burned down. I asked him if he was planning on installing copper on the front and rear porches and he said yes, to please give him a bid on it. He said that he had an international team of roofers to install the shingles on the roof and that if I wanted the copperjob to be sure to give him a low bid. He said that the international roofers got paid 4 to 5 dollars an hour for the shingles. (thats what American roofers were making in 1970). Well, I turned in a bid to him for 5 grand on the copperwork. A fair price. So this past Monday morning was when my adventure began. (and it ain’t over by a long shot). I drove by that house early Monday, the international roofing team was hard at work installing the copper. I saw red. I got enraged. I went home, made up 2 picket signs, one said illegals, stop stealing our jobs and the other simply said Enforce our laws. I told my wife that I probably wasn’t coming home that night because I was going to protest until I got arrested and taken to jail. In route to the job I called my son and told him what I was planning to do. I asked for his support, gave him my digital camera and had him park his truck across the intersection from the job with the camera and take pictures of me protesting that job. I got my picket sign and started marching up and down the street yelling. I brought out all of the homeowners neighbors told them exactly how cheap their friend was. Every vehicle that came by I made sure they slowed down, read my sign and saw how mad I was.

Terry Funderburk protesting

After about 30 minutes of doing this a single cop showed up. He pulled over, came up to me, grabbed my sign, threw it down on the road and told me to come to his patrol car with him. I asked him if I was under arrest, he said no that he just wanted to talk to me. I told him no, I wanted his hands off me, my sign back and that I wanted to keep expressing my first amendment rights. He grabbed me forcefully then, trying to steer me to his vehicle but I immediately sat down in the middle of the road. I was still yelling because I was madder than hell at that homeowner.

Terry Funderburk’s First Amendment rights being squelched

He cuffed my hands behind me then he real forcefully tried to pick me up so I yelled to my son, Police brutality, take a picture, lol, That cop took his hands off me then and called for a backup. The other cop arrived after 30 minutes or so and the entire time I am so pissed I yelled at everybody that came by. A lot of them gave a a thumbs up.

Terry being handcuffed and forced on the ground… but NOT “arrested”.

Once the cop was talking to the homeowner so I reached over and picked up my sign with my hands cuffed and yelled for my son to take a picture, (nice one too).

Terry, You’re the best!

Well, both cops came over to me, I asked them if I was under arrest they said no. They picked me up (no help from me) and shoved me in the back of the patrol car.

Terry being hauled off and taken to jail for demonstrating his First Amendment rights… but, Not arrested.

I looked at the homeowner while they were doing this and he had a smirk on his face so I called him a cheap bastard. I asked both cops again if I was under arrest, they both said no so I demanded to be released. Then the first cop sat in the front seat and began to write a ticket. I asked him what was the charge he said cursing. lol. I started laughing then, it was just so damn funny (and tragic). I asked him, tell me, which crime is worse, cursing, that homeowner knowingly and admitting to employing illegals or the illegals breaking the law by being here illegally? Well, I certainly found out which crime is the most serious because I spent the next 22 hours in jail for cursing. When I got out of jail Tuesday afternoon I called and emailed 8 different law firms. I went to criminal court yesterday morning (for cursing mind you). The judge asked me how did I plead. I told him I wanted a jury trial. Thats what the lawyers had advised me. Every word in this story is true. I got the pictures to prove it. And the ticket for cursing too of course. My trial should be within the next 3 to six weeks, I’m just about bankrupt because of all the illegal competition, but I swear to God if I am found guilty of cursing I will take it all the way to the supreme court. I listened to Michael Savage the other evening and he said that there were 30 illegal Hispanics outside his studio protesting something he said over the air. He said that they sounded like they were offended and then he said that there are 180 million Americans offended by the millions of illegals flooding across our southern border but of the 2 groups who is our politicians and government listening to. The 30 illegals of course. But I tell you what, it is way past time for the American people to put there feet down, to get rid of most of the bums in Washington and locally and get this country back to the way it was before it became politically correct. The way things are going these days I fear for the future of my kids and grandkids. Is there anybody out there with me or can offer me any advice? Thanks for reading a tragic story from a very outraged patriot. Almost forgot, but I am not one of Senator Lindsey Grahams bigots(this fellow is gone come nov 08). I am married to a beautiful lady from the Philippines. It cost 15 grand in visa and lawyer fees to get her here LEGALLY. The process took 2 years. She didn’t have a border to just stroll across like our southern neighbors love to do all the time.

Terry, we’re as grateful and proud of you as we can be.  America loves you and of course, you’re now the Savage Nation’s favorite son.  America needs about 100 million more Terrys’.

UPDATE:   Freedom Folks got ahold of Terry Funderburk today and interviewed him over the phone.  They have some updated information on their site here.  Go there and read it.  You’ll love Terry and his family even more. 

Get Well, Don. America Needs You More Than Ever.

Don, the AZGhost and momentum behind Americans killed by Illegals, Just got out of the hospital yesterday.  Our thoughts and our prayers are with him in his recovery.  The Ghost is a good and decent God fearing patriotic American who has always been decent to me.  He is a leader in the cause for a soveriegn America and illegal immigration enforcement.  He is a selfless man who tries hard to get the word out about all the innocent American lives that have been snuffed out by the lawless illegal invaders.

May each of you offer up your prayer to his speedy recovery.  God bless you Arizona Ghost.  God bless you and watch over you.  May the Lord heal you and make you stronger than you ever were before.  May you continue to do the Lord’s work and fulfill the patriotic mission you have undertaken.

Please visit him at his site americanskilledbyillegals.com and wish him well. 

My best wishes and prayers go out to you and your family Don.  Please get well soon.  America and Arizona need you more than ever.

These People Know How To Make Money, With Illegal Alien Labor Of Course

Just some of the “open borders” lobby

 Commentary:  Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, is right on the money in this argument.  The “Wake Up Coalition of Greed Fueled Law-Breaking Asshats”, who are void of any real and valid basis for their opposition to a law requiring them to forfeit profit for compliance, are left with nothing but to throw out the already spent “race card”.  This coalition of greedy lawbreakers claim that if they are forced out of business by continuing to break the law, “Anglos” will lose their jobs too.

I refuse to sink down to the coalitions level as referring to this in racial terms.  If lawbreaking businesses are forced out of business for hiring illegal workers, then the few and far between legal employees will find work with other employers.  And get this… MANY new legal businesses will start up and fill the void as the market dictates.  You see, it’s simple economics.  Every single one of these greedy lawbreaking business owners know this.  They are simply trying to protect their sleazy and quite profitable scheme of hiring illegal workers and paying them slave wages.

Business Owner Group Says Illegal-Hire Law Will Hurt Anglos Too

By Howard Fischer

Capitol Media Services

PHOENIX — A new state law intended to deny work to those here illegally will end up costing a lot of Anglo Arizonans their jobs.

That’s what a group of Arizona business owners hope to convince the state’s non-Hispanic majority of — that it’s in their own best interest to quash laws punishing companies for knowingly hiring undocumented workers.

Mac Magruder who heads the Wake Up Arizona coalition, said Tuesday the new law will have “devastating unintended consequence” on the state’s economy, and will do far more than just drive out the possible 500,000 people in Arizona illegally.

“When brown people lose their jobs, white people will lose their jobs,” he said.

He noted that the law, which takes effect Jan. 1, allows a judge to suspend a firm’s license to do business for up to 10 days. A second violation in three years means permanent revocation.

“When a business shuts down, where are they going to work?” asked Magruder.

Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox said fears of “racial profiling” may result in “a mass exodus of workers.” Wilcox, who also owns a Mexican restaurant in Phoenix, said companies that lose some of their work force will be unable to stay in business and have to lay everyone else off.

Besides backing court action to overturn the law, the coalition, which now has about 15 members, hopes to persuade voters to defeat an even tougher measure that may be on the 2008 ballot, possibly by launching a competing initiative more favorable to employers.

The campaign, however, started with some name calling.

Magruder, who owns seven McDonald’s franchises, said Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, architect of the law, would not negotiate in good faith during the legislative session.

“You can’t reason with hatred,” Magruder said. Asked later if he believes Pearce is a racist, Magruder said, “I mean, something walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, I wonder if it is.”

Pearce, however, noted the law punishes only firms that knowingly or intentionally hire undocumented workers, which Pearce said protects other companies that hire only legal U.S. residents from unfair competition.

He said Magruder “wanted employer amnesty.”

“Anytime they run out of arguments . . . they throw out the race card,” Pearce said. “These are folks who simply don’t want the law enforced.”

Magruder said companies try to follow proper procedures, checking Social Security numbers and filling out federal hiring checklists. But he conceded someone must be hiring people who crossed the border illegally.

“What happens is, if you even start questioning those documents you can be sued for profiling,” Magruder said. “The business guy is really between a rock and hard place.”

Coalition members said the state should stay out of issues surrounding illegal immigration. But Gov. Janet Napolitano, who signed the measure, said that isn’t an option.

“The failure of this administration, this Congress to pass immigration reform in a comprehensive manner has serious repercussions for the states,” she said Tuesday.

Here is a list of “The Wake Up Coalition of Greed Fueled Law-Breaking Asshats”.  I should add that I know two of the people on this list.  I am a little surprised to see their names here however, I also know that each of these two individuals is the type to put personal profits above moral conviction.  So, I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.

• Mac Magruder, owns McDonald’s franchises

• Ray Arvizu, owns Arvizu Advertising & Promotions, a Hispanic marketing firm

• Tom Barnett, owns Good Egg and Eggery restaurants and Burger King franchises

• Steve Chucri, president, Arizona Restaurant Association

• Jim Click, Tucson car dealer

• Steve Hilton, chief executive, Meritage Homes

• Gordon James, owns public relations firm

• James LeVecke, owns Carl’s Jr. franchises

• Jeff Moorad, general manager, Arizona Diamondbacks

• Mary Rose Wilcox, Maricopa County supervisor, owner El Portal restaurant.
