    Foxx Proposed Legislation to Prevent Illegals From FHA Loans

    Foxx bill would add checks on U.S. loans
    Illegal immigrants are focus of proposal
    By Mary M. Shaffrey
    JOURNAL WASHINGTON BUREAU
    Friday, December 16, 2005


    WASHINGTON

    Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-5th, has proposed legislation that would require more checks to prevent illegal immigrants from getting federally guaranteed loans.

    Foxx proposed an amendment to immigration legislation under consideration this week. The proposal came after Foxx learned that a man, who police say is living in the country illegally, bought a home in Winston-Salem with a $123,000 loan guaranteed by the federal government. The man also is accused in several rapes in the Triad.

    Gilberto Cruz Hernandez, 24, has been arrested and charged in connection with a string of rapes and sexual assaults in Winston-Salem, High Point and Greensboro. He is being held in the Forsyth County Jail with bond set at $3 million.

    Winston-Salem police charged Hernandez on Oct. 28 after DNA evidence linked him to sexual assaults that were reported earlier in the year. A few days after his arrest, he was charged in connection with three sexual assaults that were reported in Greensboro in May 2004 and January and February this year.

    Hernandez had been deported to Mexico twice, but he returned to the United States, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, and bought a home.

    "This is just crazy that the federal government is guaranteeing loans for illegal aliens," Foxx said. "If we are going to ask employers to verify (the status of) employees, it makes sense that we hold the government to the same standard."

    The main immigration bill, which Foxx co-sponsored, would increase fines against employers who hire illegal immigrants.

    Businesses would be required to verify the status of immigrant workers.

    Eric Rodriguez, the director of the policy center at the National Council of La Raza, a group that lobbies for immigrants, said that Foxx's bill was not necessary because existing federal guidelines are already supposed to bar the government from issuing loans to illegal immigrants.

    Foxx is a little late on this..banks and other lending establishments are running a circle around the moon in attempting to do business with the illegals. Considering that it's the taxpayer who always foots the bill I view this with alarm. I well remember the saving and loan scandal and somehow that little escapade cost the taxpayer billions...and billons...and billions.

    It's already illegal for banks to do business with illegals..but like the rest of our immigration laws...it isn't enforced.

    This article added to the homepage with a note about how they left the part about Hernandez's 44k job and fresh and valid NC license out of the article.

    Thanks, William, and I just emailed the writer of this article. Below is my email to her:

    Thank you for FINALLY following up on the Gilberto Cruz Hernandez case. Greensboro News and Record has been running rings around the Journal with this case. There are a couple of things you failed to mention in your article which are GERMANE to the issue. This man, who WE are paying to DEFEND in court, had a job that paid $44,000 a year and a brand new, fresh NC Drivers' License.

    Let's get the whole story out PLEASE.

    Thank you,

    Go for it! This is getting NOTICEABLE. They just CHOOSE to ignore the problem. Now, even I am beginning to believe the liberal media charges.
