Keish Kim (seen above testifying to the Georgia House Higher Education Committee) is an illegal alien from Korea. She is a classic candidate for strategic deportation.
And while they’re at it, our law enforcement Finest might also do something about ICE chief John Morton. He is responsible for the fact that Kim is not only at large, but openly and publically demanding special benefits as an illegal alien.
Look at this Atlanta Journal-Constitution story:
Illegal immigrants would be barred from attending all Georgia public colleges under a bill a Senate committee passed Wednesday.
Senate Bill 458 also would relax some requirements and tighten others as it relates to the sweeping immigration bill lawmakers passed last year. But it was the proposed rule of banning some students from the 35 colleges in the University System of Georgia and the 25 in the Technical College System of Georgia that occupied nearly all of the 90-minute discussion.
The bill moves on to the full Senate, and it’s hard to say what will happen next. House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, and Gov. Nathan Deal have said they’re reluctant to tinker with current immigration law. The Senate bill is similar to House Bill 59, which a committee debated in January but has yet to vote on.
Sen. Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville, sponsored SB 458 and described it as a simple measure. He said illegal immigrants are taking college slots away from citizens and stressed they won’t be able to legally work in this country after graduation…
Loudermilk and others said the University System is violating federal law by admitting these students because attending a public college is a benefit reserved for lawful residents.
Committee Passes Bill Banning Illegal Immigrants From Ga. Public Colleges, by Laura Diamond, February 22, 2012
Senator Loudermilk is absolutely correct. Federal law already prohibits aliens from attending any school in the United States, pre- or post-secondary, except for legal permanent resident aliens, asylees, refugees, and a certain narrow class of non-immigrant aliens lawfully admitted and lawfully present. (The disgraceful Plyler vs. Doe decision merely said that local governments could not exclude illegal alien students from public school in default of federal action. In other words, there is no reason that federal agents could not deport illegal aliens right out of the classroom).
The MSM didn’t tell you that? It’s important. But for the moment, we will stick with the arrogant scofflaw Keish Kim.
If there is anything that America does not need, it is more shysters. We already have more than the world’s share of attorneys. We don’t need her.
Perhaps her homeland, the Republic of Korea, could do with some attorneys. But for some reason (what? this is South, non-Communist, Korea we’re talking about), she does not want to go back.
Kim’s most recent testimony that got her mug plastered all over the internet—the same internet that ICE has access to—is not even the first time that she appeared in public and testified against a bill banning all illegal aliens from Georgia post-secondary educational institutions:
The committee heard testimony from a long list of people, most of whom opposed the bill.
Keish Kim, 20, an illegal immigrant from Korea who lives in Roswell, told the committee she graduated from high school in 2009 and was accepted to several of the state’s most competitive schools, but couldn’t attend them because her family couldn’t afford out-of-state tuition.
“I was very afraid and I was very upset because I just wanted to learn,” she said in emotional testimony, adding that she watched her dreams of becoming a lawyer “fall to the ground.”
[Bill Would Bar Illegal Immigrants From Georgia Colleges, by Kate Brumback, Augusta Chronicle, January 31, 2012]
Because of the difference between out-of-state and in-state tuition? What about out-of-state Americans?
And even before that, Keish Kim testified to the Board of Regents on November 8, 2011. It was recorded for the world to see and posted on YouTube. (Bring your Kleenex).
Here she did not just merely ask, but demanded accommodation and benefits for herself and other illegal aliens. She whines about racism and discrimination—but does not mention that the ROK has plenty of institutes of higher education.
Worse than this tear-jerking, exploitative nonsense from the Treason Lobby: proponents of DREAM Act-type legislation at the state level are using false and misleading information from ICE to justify allowing illegal aliens to attend post-secondary education.
This is not new. In 2008, at the end of the Bush Regime, an ICE spokesman actually claimed that Federal law does not prohibit aliens from attending post-secondary education institutions.
RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina's community colleges can decide whether they want to enroll illegal immigrants, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said Friday…
Richard Rocha, a spokesman for ICE, said Friday that illegal immigrants can apply to any school, but they run the risk of deportation if they are caught in the country.
"It is left for the school to decide whether or not to enroll out-of-status or undocumented non-immigrants," Rocha said in a statement. "The Department of Homeland Security does not require any school to determine a student’s (immigration) status."
[Feds: Colleges Can Enroll Illegal Immigrants, WRAL.com, May 9, 2008]
That could not be more false. The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires that all aliens, other than legal permanent residents, asylees, and refugees, obtain a valid unexpired F-1 Student visa before they can attend any educational institution in the United States. (The only exceptions: lawfully present non-immigrant aliens only studying English a limited number of hours per week and certain other non-immigrant categories may attend post-secondary institutions. However, no other aliens—including those aliens unlawfully present—may attend either pre- or post-secondary educational institutions.)
Read the Act on the F-1 visa for alien students here. Read the Act on persons who are unlawfully present, like Keish Kim, here.
And read the United States Code (USC), Chapter 8, Section 1324 on aiding aliens to remain in violation of the law—which would include allowing them to enroll and attend a post-secondary institution.
There it is, in black and white—it is illegal for an alien unlawfully present to attend a post-secondary institution—especially if the institution knows, or, in reckless disregard, allows the crime to occur.
And that makes Richard Rocha, Morton’ spokesman at ICE, guilty of aiding and abetting, another criminal offense— 18 USC 2:
(a) Whoever commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal.
(b) Whoever willfully causes an act to be done which if directly performed by him or another would be an offense against the United States, is punishable as a principal.
The facts also indict John Morton, head of ICE, as well. He is failing to make it clear to the public, and to post-secondary educational institutions, that allowing illegal aliens to attend post-secondary institutions is a violation of the law. Morton is guilty of violation of 18 USC 3, Accessory After The Fact.
