I Hope This Isn't Accurate!!!

#1 Post by COSteve » Tue Feb 11, 2020 11:34 am

A friend who lives in LA who's been pretty reliable at sending along information that's accurate, sent me this. I hope it isn't accurate.

"Interesting that the LA Times did this. All the others are staying away from it. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, this should be of great interest to you! Facts from just one single state. If this doesn't open your eyes, nothing will! From the LA. Times:
1. 40% of all workers in LA County (10.2 million people) are working for cash; and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card. (Donald Trump was right)
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals; they are here illegally.
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9. 21 radio stations in LA are Spanish-speaking.
10. In LA County, 5.1 million people speak English; 3.9 million, speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people, in LA County.)
11. All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times.
12. Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.
13. Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth, (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York), results from immigration, legal and illegal.
14. Also, 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

We are fools for letting this continue. This is only one State. If this doesn't open your eyes nothing will, and you wonder why NANCY PELOSI wants them to become voters!"

I have seen this before, I'd take it as pretty much truthful! I believe it was confirmed by snopes.

Thanks, that's NOT what I wanted to hear but was afraid I would, hence the reason I posted it.

Thanks for posting this Steve... nothing surprising here, just move along, and avert your gaze.

I would like to see a GIS layer showing as accurately as possible, all the information posted in the Times

I wonder how to do that

It was given essentially a "partially true" rating by Snopes. For instance, they were not all reported in the Times. The assertion that "over 2/3 of births are to illegal aliens" : in fact, over 2/3 of the births in the county are to people with Hispanic names. Legal status is not recorded, and LA is historically an area with a high population of people of Hispanic descent, many of whom have been there since before there was a United States. If my name is O'Riley, it wouldn't mean my parents were illegal-alien Irish.

The rest of the assertions consist of a mix of facts, exaggerations or misleading interpretations, outright falsehoods, and red herrings -- like "21 radio stations are Spanish-speaking". So what? There are also 11 Asian radio stations. Those facts have zero impact on public expenditures, much like the number of Mexican or Chinese restaurants that might be in the county.

GREAT. snopes is a political tool of the left, which came out during the O'horrer period, IIRC.
Those facts have zero impact on public expenditure
This is true... So, I'd like to see from public records, the tax contributions of the groups listed in the Times. . . The encarceration records. The violent crime by group recorded by the CDC. . . the public assistance consumption by those groups, and the street-views of all those inhabited garages . . . IOW, all the relevant information that does have impacts on public expenditure.

all souls are created and owned by the same Creator. . . all souls are vulnerable to the same ravages of sin. . . all souls are on a long never ending journey. . . but the political "solutions" only exacerbate the plight of any group of people, neglect actual mercy and justice. . . and leave our communities and society with these painful facts. . . politicians cannot fix this

But the Times may have some valid observations anyway

Having lived in LA most of my life, I would agree with most of the items on that list. "Those facts have zero impact on public expenditure" is obviously a misleading (wrong) statement. The single most popular place in LA county on the first of each month is the Welfare office. The least popular is the Employment office. No fiscal impact? I know of two small cities in LA county that went bankrupt because they had to pay for 2-3 meals per day for students, freebies were handed out freely, programs for the "poor" abounded and very little income from taxes.

Fortunately I was able to escape CA 10 years ago but by what I saw back then I am sure it has gotten much worse today...

I lived in los angeles county from 1964 to 2005. I can believe it. I had to take someone to the county hospitals a few times and it was unbelievable. Wall to wall spanish speaking mexicans with hardly another gringo. Some of the stats may be off but probably not by much. I really believe when you hear mexicans talking spanish I would bet most of them are illegals and if they arent their parents are/were. Long, long ago I knew a LA cop who said if they stopped or found a obvious illegal they were told not to bother bringing them in. I was a security guard for a huge company. Our uniforms were similar to the border patrol. Once I and my partner were driving to a site through a agriculture area where a large bunch were picking vegetables.
On a devilish impulse I pulled over quick and stopped and we got out and just stood by the car. They all scattered like a covey of quail! It`s all a farce. I know a retired county sheriff of a county in Arizona. Not just a deputy, but was the sheriff. He said it`s a bad joke. The way he put it, I could load a bus full of Illegals every half hour but they didn't bother to. The border patrol wouldn't take them. Why do we have a border patrol? Maybe it`s changed some since Trump is president?

Snopes is run by a husband and wife team who have no background in research or journalism. They are political hacks.
