NORTHAMPTON, Mass. Starting Friday, it has become more expensive for #immigrants to become U.S. citizens than it has been over the past six years – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Dec.26: On average, it will cost about 21% more to for immigrants to pay for their applications and petitions.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services says that the paperwork is more expensive now to help pay for making the immigration processing faster. This includes fraud detection, national security costs, case processing, and providing free services to refugees. The application for naturalization will now cost $640; $45 more than it was before.

That may not sound like much, but it can be a hefty amount for immigrants.

“If it does actually expedite that process, then I think that’s a positive thing, because I hear a lot about how backlogged the system gets, and how difficult it can be to get through,” Liam Sullivan of Northampton said.

Citizenship and Immigration Services will offer a reduced filing fee for certain applicants who are qualified for the assistance.

The plan was to roll out new fees in 2012 and 2014, but that was postponed, because the economy was not strong at the time.

SWEDEN: ‘ REINFELDT ANTI-SWEDISH RANT SAYING SWEDEN BELONGS TO IMMIGRANTS NOT THE NATIVE SWEDISH ‘

#AceNewsServices – Featured Post:SWEDEN:Jan.09: On Christmas eve, the Former Prime Minister of Sweden, Fredrik Reinfeldt, came out with an anti-Swedish rant saying that Sweden belongs to the immigrants who move there, not the Native Swedish.

He also said that Sweden’s borders are fictional and the Native Swedish are “uninteresting”.

“There is a choice of which country Sweden will be,” he told TV4.

“Is this a land that is owned by those who have lived here for three or four generations,” he asked, “or is Sweden [a country] where people who come here in mid-life makes it to be and develops it?“

“To me, it is obvious that it should be the latter and that there is a stronger and better society if it will be open [to more immigration].”

He also told TV4 “What is Sweden as a country? Is this a country owned by those who lived here for four generations or those found on any limit?“

“It’s what they [immigrants] do in Sweden that is Sweden.”

In Sweden, if you do not support mass immigration and Swedish areas being deliberately targeted for “diversity“, you are quite literally seen as a “Racist” and “Neo-Nazi”, an enemy to their communist government.

‘ POLITICAL ANALYST LABELS EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRATION AN IMPEACHABLE ACT ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – Nov.24 – Political analyst Pat Buchanan has chimed in on the executive immigration uproar, labelling it an “impeachable act,” while there are fresh indications that House Republicans do not intend to act against the order.

Appearing on public affairs program The McLaughlin Group, Buchanan said “He [Obama] is behaving as a rogue president.”

“Politically, it may be a very clever move, he’s divided the Republicans, no doubt about it. He’s sticking it into their face after their victory, he’s saying ‘I’m going to do what I want to do and now you pass your bill.’” Buchanan added.

“But the problem is, I think he has really poisoned the well with the Republicans for the next two years…I think this is going to be, no doubt about it, along with Obamacare, one of the signal achievements of the Obama administration.” the author stated.

“I think it’s going to backfire on him politically, and I think it’s going to backfire on the Democratic Party.” Buchanan added, also noting that “it’s an impeachable act, but they should not impeach them” because the majority of Americans do not support such a move.

Buchanan reiterated comments he made Thursday when he told Newsmax that Obama “is seizing power that he does not have” and saying “to hell with the Constitution.”

In an op ed, Buchanan also stated that “We have just taken a monumental step away from republicanism toward Caesarism. For this is rule by diktat, the rejection of which sparked the American Revolution.”

In an address Saturday, Obama warned Republicans not to make the immigration action a “dealbreaker” on other issues because “that’s not how our democracy works”.

The White House has declared the executive action, “legally unassailable,” declaring it consistent with the way “President Reagan, President George H.W. Bush and President George W. Bush used their executive authority.”

Meanwhile, House Speaker John Boehner has stated, absent details, that “something will be done” to counter the immigration order.

“We will not stand idle as the president undermines the rule of law in our country and places lives at risk.” Boehner said, adding “He has taken actions that he himself has said are those of a king or an emperor, not an American president.”

However, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) claims that the GOP leadership actually has no intention of acting against the executive order, telling Breitbart News Saturday that Republicans have been advised “not to engage” on the subject.

“While the country is talking about amnesty, and the president is taking unconstitutional actions, our leadership wants to change the subject and not engage,” she said.

“They acted as though the amnesty issue wasn’t even an issue. They said that the President is going to do what he’s going to do, and we are not going to get down in the mud with him.” Bachmann stated, saying she was “floored” by the reaction. Source:

‘ OBAMA ANNOUNCES PLAN FOR RELIEF FROM DEPORTATION FOR FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – Nov.21 – Thousands of immigrant-rights activists, families and elected officials cheered across the country as President Barack Obama announced on television his plan for relief from deportations for about 5 million people AP reported.  

But after the initial burst of emotion Thursday evening at hastily organized watch parties and in living rooms, many said Obama’s plan was just the first step in the fight for comprehensive immigration reform.

Immigrant families pointed out the plan would only cover about 5 million of the 11 million without legal status, leaving many families and individuals in limbo.

‘ THE LEAKED OBAMA AMNESTY PLAN & ELIMINATION OF SECURE COMMUNITIES PROGRAM ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – Nov.15 – This post follows on from my previous post here.  

' Secure Communities Programme '

‘ Secure Communities Programme ‘

On Nov.13 Fox News shows apparently were filled with excited reporting that they had gotten hold of a 10-part Obama amnesty plan from “a source close to the White House.”

Fox indicated Obama would announce the plan as early as late next week and that major congressional Democratic leaders are cheering the boldness and broadness of it.

According to Fox:

The plan contains 10 initiatives than span everything from boosting border security to improving pay for immigration officers.

The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children — but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

The plan could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates . . . receive work authorization in the United States, Social Security numbers and government-issued IDs.

Another portion that is sure to cause consternation among anti-”amnesty” lawmakers is a plan to expand deferred action for young people. In June 2012, Obama created such a program for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, entered before June 2007 and were under 31 as of June 2012.

The change would expand that to cover anyone who entered before they were 16, and change the cut-off from June 2007 to Jan. 1, 2010. This is estimated to make nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants eligible.

The draft plan obtained by Fox shows Obama granting permanent work permits to an extra 500,000 immigrants apparently for tech jobs.

The plan also calls for elimination of the Secure Communities program which had been one of the few successful programs for removing criminal aliens from the country.

‘ OBAMA POISED TO DELAY DEPORTATIONS FOR PARENTS, SPOUSES OF US CITIZENS ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – Nov.15 – Major changes to immigration policy could be under-way in the United States.

White House administration officials and advocates are reporting that the president will announce unilateral action sometime next week. CCTV America’s Jessica Stone reported this story from Washington, D.C.

Immigration advocate Maru Mora Villalpando came to the United States 22 years ago from Mexico City on a tourist visa and stayed. Though she and her daughter share a close relationship, they do not share U.S. citizenship. She fears deportation and imagines how it would feel to have her “illegal” status lifted. 

“I could plan for her future and my future. I think she would be so happy,” she said.

Instead of remaining hidden, Villalpando has become one of a chorus of voices pressuring Washington to pass measures to create a pathway to citizenship for people like her. 

“When people say we don’t follow the rules, there are no paths for us to become legalized,” Villalpando said.

White House officials said Obama is poised to circumvent the U.S. Congress, and delay deportations for parents and spouses of U.S. citizens and those brought here before age 16.

The incident has prompted the federal government to order a security review at all 139 shelters across the country that house illegal immigrant minors, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

The boys, age 16 and 17, were able to walk away unchallenged from Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, Illinois, outside Chicago, on Wednesday morning and carjack two victims before they were arrested more than 225 miles away outside Iowa City, Iowa, according to authorities.

Police say they targeted an elderly man in Moline, Illinois, who was picking up his prescription at Walmart. 

They threatened him with violence, forced him out of his car and then sped off with his Buick LeSabre.  

A 225-mile escape plan: Police say the escaped teens, age 16 and 17, were headed for California, where one of them has family

Police tell MaiIOnline they were headed for California, where one of the teens has family.

The teens had been transferred to the Illinois facility after crossing the US-Mexico border as unaccompanied minors and requesting asylum in the United States.

UK: `New Migrant Job-seekers from the European Economic Area (EEA)’ will no longer be able to get`Housing Benefit’ from April 2014″

#AceNewsServices says Press Release New Migrant Job-seekers from the European Economic Area (EEA)' will no longer be able to get Housing Benefit‘ from April 2014.

placeholder

New migrant job-seekers from the European Economic Area (EEA) will no longer be able to get Housing Benefit (HB) from April, Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith announced on (20 January 2014).

The government is determined to cap welfare and reduce immigration as part of Britain’s long-term economic plan and ministers want to make sure the system is fair for hard-working taxpayers.

From the start of April, new EEA job-seekers will no longer be able to access Housing Benefit if they are claiming income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA).

This builds on new rules introduced in January which mean EEA migrants cannot claim income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance until they have been in the country for three months.

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said:

As part of the government’s long-term economic plan we have taken action to make sure our economy delivers for people who want to work hard and play by the rules.

These reforms will ensure we have a fair system – one which provides support for genuine workers and job-seekers, but does not allow people to come to our country and take advantage of our benefits system.

The British public are rightly concerned that migrants should contribute to this country, and not be drawn here by the attractiveness of our benefits system.

The Housing Benefit changes do not affect UK and Irish Republic nationals, or EEA migrants genuinely self-employed or in a job. EEA nationals who have worked in the UK, and are subsequently made redundant and claim JSA, will not be affected by this measure.

As part of the government’s long-term economic plan to get people off benefits and into work, a series of reforms have been put in place to make sure migrants wanting to come to this country do everything they can to find a job and stay in work.

Other measures recently introduced include:

From 1 January all EEA job-seekers have to wait for 3 months before they can get income-based JSA. This will make sure that only people who have a clear commitment to the UK and plan to contribute to the economy have access to our welfare system.

After 3 months, job-seekers will also have to take a stronger, more robust Habitual Residence Test if they want to claim income-based JSA.

If they pass the Habitual Residence Test, EEA job-seekers will then only be able to get JSA for 6 months. After 6 months, only those who have a job offer or compelling evidence that they have a genuine chance of finding work will be able to continue claiming.

This week, the government will set out how reforms to welfare and immigration are helping to build a stronger, more competitive, economy that will secure a better future for Britain. Ministers are determined to fix the welfare system to make sure more people can get into work and benefit from the security that a job brings.

UK: “Cameron Says Speak English or Lose Benefits Even if You Are Entitled”

#AceNewsServices says according to the Daily Mail today David Cameron plans to strip ,welfare handouts from immigrants, that refuse to speak English.
His reason’s for wanting to destroy any form of “Welfare Benefits” are clear that his party want to cut ,slash and burn people worse off ,we are at the beginning of that, with his latest raft of measures.
Well now he turns to the immigrants of this country, and wants to find a way to stop them claiming benefits, his idea is to stop printing welfare paperwork in foreign languages, and stop claimants from using tax-payer funded translators at benefit offices.
Of course this is the first step in changing a policy of what has become an open-door policy, to closing our borders to anyone who does not fit!
For many years we have allowed people from other countries to become resident’s and work in job’s that over the past 10 years, many British people would not do, reason being low wages. l know of at least 3 people local to me that earn a measly £2.50 per hour for shop work. One of the places that have many immigrants, including Polish, Romanian and Bulgarians have worked for years, is the hotel and restaurant trade, that would barely survive without them!

Well l say it is one step too far, when we use a language barrier as a way ,to stop people claiming what in many cases could be rightfully their’s.
