University of Arkansas has invited legislators to hear 5 illegal aliens to speak
University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, has invited legislators to hear 5 illegal aliens speak at a panel discussion
Please Sound the Alarm
David Gearhart, Chancellor for the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, has invited legislators to hear 5 illegal aliens speak at a panel discussion on Monday, April 23, 2012, 7:30 p.m., at the Fayetteville Town Center. The subject of the panel is, "Undocumented: Living in the Shadows."
This is a direct violation of U.S. Statute 8 USC, Section 1324a, which states "...any person who knowingly hires, harbors or transports any illegal alien is guilty of a felony punishable to 10 years jail plus $2000 fine per illegal alien."
Gearhart knows he is promoting lawlessness as illustrated by this quote in his invitation: "Two panelists are university students who grew up in Arkansas. The other three panelists grew up in Massachusetts, New York and Virginia, respectively. Their undocumented immigration status makes travel within the U.S. difficult and risky and their ability to work legally impossible. They are taking a significant risk by making themselves so publicly visible."
Please contact Chancellor Gearhart at email@example.com and let him know that you object to him, as Chancellor of a state institution, supporting illegal activity.
In 2009, Gearhart testified in favor of a bill to give in-state tuition to illegal aliens. In 2005, during legislative hearings on HB1525 a bill to give scholarships and in-state tuition to illegal aliens, by Joyce Elliott, several presidents of colleges spoke in favor of the bill. However when asked one by one by a legislator if they would hire these students when they graduated, these university presidents all admitted they would not. They knew they had to answer this way; otherwise they would be confessing they would be willing to be involved in criminal activity by hiring them.
You might also find it interesting that University of Arkansas Chancellor David Gearhart received a $225,000 bonus in 2010, and his salary was raised to $289,000, according to Arkansas Times at this link.
Gearhart sent legislators invitations to this event, evidently in an attempt to build support for the Dream Act or amnesty for these students. Please contact your legislators to let them know what is going on and how many people are still concerned about this issue. Also, is there anyone that will check into this matter and try to attend the event on the 23rd at the Town Hall in Fayetteville and give us a report on it? It is open and free to the public but the Chancellor acted as though there may not be room for everyone that wanted to come.

Bonus for UA's Gearhart
by Arkansas Times Staff
Bonus for UA's Gearhart
It passed without notice in the daily press at the time, but the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees completed its annual meeting on campus executive pay last week by granting one significant bonus along with a slate of pay increases for campus chancellors. It approved $225,000 in deferred compensation to G. David Gearhart, chancellor of the flagship campus at Fayetteville. His pay also will rise from $282,000 to $289,000.
Trustee Sam Hilburn made the motion for the $225,000 bonus – which will come from the private University of Arkansas Foundation and be held for Gearhart until retirement from the chancellor's job. John Tyson seconded it. It was approved without discussion. The money is immediately vested for Gearhart.
Gearhart was the only chancellor to receive any form of additional compensation. John Ed Anthony, chairman of the UA Board, said Gearhart had done a “super job” and his pay was among the lowest in the country for leaders of campuses of the UA's stature. He said it was understood when Gearhart was hired that the UA needed to improve the pay of Fayetteville's chancellor, but Gearhart accepted a lower pay than the job should have commanded on his hiring a little more than a year ago because of difficult economic circumstances. “This seemed the time for that to be addressed,” Anthony said.
The search for president
John Ed Anthony confirmed several things we'd heard about recent discussions concerning a new president for the University of Arkansas System. President B. Alan Sugg has announced his retirement in 2011.
Anthony said there was strong support on the board, as has been reported, to elevate Gearhart to the presidency. He said, however, that a minority of members of the board thought that there should be an open application process in which Gearhart should participate, even though these members also favored Gearhart.
Anthony said the Board likes to govern by broad consensus. But, Anthony said, the desire that Gearhart be made to apply for the job, rather than be chosen by acclamation, was not the stumbling block to Gearhart's selection. Instead, it was Gearhart's desire that he continue for some period as chancellor of the Fayetteville campus as well as president. He's only been at Fayetteville for a year. He's hired a leadership team. He's expressed an interest in completing his beginning goals for the campus.
The prospect of a UA president concurrently being the top official at Fayetteville caused discomfort at other UA campuses, with their sometimes competing interests.Ultimately, Gearhart announced he would stay as chancellor at Fayetteville and not seek the presidency.
In response to a question, Anthony said he hoped the occasion might arise that Gearhart could again be considered for the presidency. But he said Gearhart had “conditioned himself to the idea he could end career as chancellor and be happy.” Anthony said he was confident the UA Board would hire a “fine president,” but there was always the chance in 5 to 10 or more years that the position would be open again.
John Ed Anthony was asked if he was concerned that other chancellors in the system might resent a special payment for Gearhart.“I don't feel that in routine meetings with other chancellors,” he said. “They recognize this is the flagship campus and the student body is much larger and the demands and requirements are exceptional.” Apart from the UAMS campus, the second-highest-paid UA chancellor in 2011 will be UALR's Joel Anderson, ?at almost $224,000.
UA President Sugg noted that new hires in organizations often are paid at rates far beyond those in an organization for much longer periods. He said, for example, he expected his successor will likely be paid more than the $300,000 he'll make beginning July 1.
“I think it's valuable we keep David Gearhart as chancellor at the UA,” Sugg said. “He has a lot of momentum there. He's a great fund-raiser. The faculty and staff and administration have a lot of confidence in him and the alumni feel good about him.”
Screen to green
Another news reporter has defected to the public relations world. KARK Channel 4's Cecillea Pond-Mayo will go from covering courts and the Capitol for the local NBC affiliate to answering press inquiries for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality. Pond-Mayo replaces Aaron Sadler, also a former journalist, who now serves as the press secretary for Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. Mayo, who'll be paid $51,000, said she wanted a job that would allow her to spend more time with her daughter after 15 years in the news business.
Is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee considering another run for president, or just leaving that impression to help build his appeal as a TV and radio host, lucrative gigs that have none of the messy accountability provisions of public jobs? We don't know, but we'd suggest Huckabee might forget about a run for president unless he can softsoap talk show host Rush Limbaugh, the de facto opinion leader of the Republican party.
In a new Limbaugh biography, “An Army of One,” author Zev Chafets writes that the frontrunner for Limbaugh's support for president is Sarah Palin, then Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. It won't be Huckabee, Chafets says. Rushbo calls the Huckster “an irresponsible populist.”

Planned Section 8 Violation
The meeting with our legislators to hear 5 illegal aliens speak about the adverse conditions under which they live will be tonight at 7:30 p.m., at the Fayetteville Town Center. The subject of the panel is, "Undocumented: Living in the Shadows." The meeting has been arranged by David Gearhart, Chancellor for the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
The term "undocumented" in the title of the discussion is a term progressives and/or liberals have chosen in an attempt to camouflage the status of people who have violated our laws by sneaking in and illegally taking up residence within our borders. We believe the correct term is "illegal alien," since they have broken our laws and are non-citizen inhabitants.
According to Blacks Law Dictionary: Illegal means forbidden by law, unlawful. Criminal is one who has committed a criminal offense. Deportable alien is an alien who has entered the United States but is subject to removal. An alien is a person who resides within the borders of a country but is not a citizen or a subject of that country; also, a person not owing allegiance to a particular nation. In the United States, an alien is a person who was born outside the jurisdiction of the United States who is subject to some foreign government, and who has not been naturalized under U.S. law.
This meeting appears to be a violation of multiple federal & state laws. One in particular is 8 USC, Section 1324a. Conspiracy to commit the crimes of transporting, harboring, or employing illegal aliens is a federal offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or five years imprisonment.
An interesting aspect of this meeting is the fact that it is not being held on the University campus. Does this mean there are legal issues to circumvent? Wonder who is paying for this.
What is Gearhart's desired objective? Is it an effort to gain the sympathy of our legislators for the poor, suffering illegal aliens and persuade lawmakers to pass legislation giving in-state tuition to them? Preference could then be given to illegal aliens over citizens from other states. Prior legislation, introduced by Senator Joyce Elliott, proposing this was a major factor in voter repudiation of her effort to become a U.S. Representative from our state. Gearhart himself testified in favor of in-state tuition for illegal aliens in 2009. Secure Arkansas testified against Joyce Elliott's bill and bringing in Gearhart.
Evidently Gearhart also condones the crime of illegal aliens working here, which leads to their getting (un)earned income tax credit that other taxpayers pay. Since illegal aliens (so-called "undocumented immigrants") are allowed to file income taxes, then they must be eligible also for (un)earned income tax credit. In 2011, a family of three could get as much as $5751 back when they file their income tax, and (un)earned income (but not the maximum) is given for salaries up to $43,352 with 3 or more children.
Perhaps we could get our conservative Congressmen to require the IRS to ascertain just how much (un)earned income is given to illegal aliens.
Upon further consideration, we believe this meeting should NOT be supported because it is a sham (something that is not what it seems).
Secure Arkansas will plan on interviewing each legislator that has attended or supported this meeting.

This FOiA was sent certified mail April 24 to U of A Chancellor Gearhart. It’s purposes are to determine if University funds (taxpayer money) was disbursed in producing the unconstitutional illegal affair promoting the status of illegal aliens that took place on April 23rd at the Fayetteville Town Center, and also to determine what politicians, etc. may have been involved in this un-American activity. The main attraction was the appearance of 5-6 illegal aliens residing in at least 4 different states. Recall he billed this affair as “educational”, why then was it held in the Town Center and not on campus?
The results will be posted when Chancellor Gearhart responds. He has 3 working days.
Whatever the results will be, i.e. taxpayer funds or private funding for the spectacle shows he is nothing more than an amnesty mule and is acting outside the bounds of a duly hired University official.
He should be fired forthwith.
