New Mexico Air Base to House 400 Illegal Immigrant Children in January

In an attempt to prevent the chaos of the immigrant border surge that occurred in the summer of 2014, Department of Homeland Security officials are securing various locations to temporarily house Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and family units from Central America. As a result of that effort, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter has directed Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo, New Mexico to house up to 400 children starting in January.

ILLINOIS’ BROKEN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION SYSTEM

ILLINOIS’ BROKEN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION SYSTEM
JOBS + GROWTH / Article
June 4, 2015
Comparisons with peer states show a badly distorted workers’ compensation system in Illinois.
Illinois’ workers’ compensation system crushes blue-collar industries, forcing them to leave the state to stay in business. Leaders across Illinois from the CEO of Caterpillar to Attorney General Lisa Madigan have repeatedly pointed out that Illinois’ system is broken and far out of line with peer states. Systemic reform is needed, not more of the soft-serve reform of 2011.

To investigate this issue further, the Illinois Policy Institute received price quotes for workers’ compensation insurance rates across the manufacturing, construction and transportation sectors in Illinois and competing states. The price quotes are measured as a percentage of total payroll wages. These results show that workers’ compensation is a major reason why blue-collar jobs are fleeing Illinois, with blue-collar workers following in droves.

The data illustrate that Illinois businesses have to pay a dramatic premium to PROTECTthemselves against wrongful lawsuits, which drives up local costs far beyond the costs in other states.

Manufacturing

Illinois has had a year full of losses in steel production. Workers’ compensation insurance for steel fabricators in Illinois is double and triple the rate of surrounding states. The same is true for steelmakers, where the insurance rate is 7.3 percent of payroll in Illinois, compared with 1.3 percent in Indiana, 2.3 percent in Michigan and 3.7 percent in Texas.

wc1

Car manufacturing for railroads and drivers is another example. The insurance premium in Illinois is 12.9 percent of payroll, compared to 3.9 percent in Indiana and 3 percent in Michigan. That means Illinois manufacturers are paying as much as 10 percent of payroll more than neighboring states on workers’ compensation regulatory costs.

wc2

Illinois doesn’t come out quite so badly in welding, but is still the least competitive of peer states. And perhaps most importantly, Illinois’ most industrialized neighbors, Michigan and Indiana, provide savings of nearly 8 percent of payroll compared to Illinois for welders.

wc3

Construction

Construction occupations in Illinois see even more outsized distortions in insurance rates, measured as a percentage of payroll. For masonry, Illinois’ workers’ compensation cost is more than four times the rate of Indiana. The regulatory cost in the Land of Lincoln is 15 percent of payroll wages higher than in Indiana and Texas, and 12 percent of payroll above Michigan.

wc4

For concrete construction workers, the distortions are even worse. Illinois’ rate is more than four times as high as Indiana and Texas, and more than double that of Michigan.

wc5

Finally, for carpentry, Illinois’ regulatory cost is triple Indiana’s, quadruple Texas’ and double most other states. That comes to an Illinois premium equal to an additional regulatory cost of 16 percent of payroll compared with Indiana, 12 percent of payroll compared with Michigan and 18 percent of payroll compared with Texas.

wc6

Transportation

Truck driving is one of the most common occupations in the U.S., providing a middle-class living for 3.5 million American workers. But Illinois makes it costly to operate a transportation business. Illinois’ workers compensation rates for long-distance trucking are more than double those of Indiana, Michigan and Texas, putting Illinois at a deficit of roughly 8 percent of payroll compared to all three states.

wc7

The difference is more extreme for parcel or package delivery, meaning workers for Fed-Ex or UPS, for example. Illinois’ rates are triple Indiana’s, double Michigan’s and quadruple Texas’, leaving Illinois employers at a comparative deficit of 16 percent, 12 percent and 18 percent of payroll wages, respectively.

wc8

Finally, even for occupations like chauffeurs and messengers, Illinois’ workers compensation system takes a big bite, with premiums coming in at triple Indiana’s rates and more than double the rate of most other peer states.

wc9

These comparisons show how far out of line Illinois’ workers compensation system is, which nearly everyone in the state seems to understand except for the trial lawyers who benefit from the system and the legislative leaders who PROTECT the trial lawyers.

Major employers across the state, Gov. Bruce Rauner and even Attorney General Lisa Madigan are all singing the same tune about the need for structural reform, which Rauner has proposed legislatively in House Bill 4223 and Senate Bill 994. Not only is this legislation a key part of Rauner’s “Turnaround Agenda,” it is a key component to restoring Illinois’ industrial backbone and blue-collar industries, so that the middle class can grow in Illinois again.

repost and kudos we loath Madigans support in IL. not their own pockets?

December 27, 2015 § Leave a comment

As we prepare to welcome in a new year of championing a freer Illinois, let’s not forget how far we came in 2015.

This year, we:
Weakened Illinois House of Representatives Speaker Mike Madigan’s power over Illinois. Despite Madigan’s efforts to remove Gov. Bruce Rauner from negotiations with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and to replace the governor with a panel of unelected, union-friendly arbitrators, Madigan failed. We demonstrated how the passage of Senate Bill 1229 would be detrimental to taxpayers and Illinois’ comeback.
Fought against powerful unions and helped thousands of Illinois home-based caregivers and child care providers exercise their right to say “no” to union membership. As a result, caregivers kept nearly $5.4 million more of their hard-earned money this year, instead of filling union coffers with it.
Debunked progressive rhetoric about Illinois’ economy. While Madigan & Co. has consistently spun misinformation about Illinois’ economic situation, calling Rauner’s reforms extreme and inessential, we worked with local and national media to demonstrate that Illinois is in desperate need of reform. We forced Madigan to defend his failing record and policies, which have harmed the middle class.
2015 has been a pivotal year for Illinois taxpayers. And all of it was made possible by the support of thousands of Illinoisans like you.

As you consider your year-end giving, I hope you’ll choose to support the Illinois Policy Institute with a gift of $15, $35 or even $100.

Illinois’ comeback is on the horizon, and with your important contribution, we’ll make even more progress in 2016.

Join us as we write the next chapter of Illinois’ comeback story.

Hello,

I need to dispute your understanding of the term Parental Alienation. Do you think that Parental Alienation occurs over a period of months or years?

Do you know that Parental Alienation and PAS are not the same thing, and that PAS has been completely debunked in the medical and legal world?

Also, we need to know what State you reside in to give you the most accurate opinion.

I am not sure how you dispute an individuals “understanding” of something but after months of research here is my “understanding”… Parental Alienation and PAS are interchangeable terms, With PAS being the specific medical term coined by Dr.Gardner over 30 years ago. Some courts even refer to it as alienation of affection. As far as being “Debunked” well I disagree as would Dr. Warshak who is one of the leading experts in his field on this study. Arguably there are as many legal professionals and Mental Health professionals that agree with PAS as disagree. Also if you remember the concept of ADHD and ADD was disputed for many years before it became widely accepted as a valid medical concept there are quite a few courts who have affirmed it in their decisions such as MATTER OF BOND v. MacLEOD 2011 NY Slip Op 03153 509360.Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York, Third Department. Decided April 21, 2011.. Also here is a link to a youtube video where Dr.Miller who is a clinical instructor at Harvard discusses, “Why courts fail to recognize parental alienation” ↓https://youtu.be/5fgRJh26Jho . Lets forget all of this for one moment and lets look at the facts. No matter what we want to call it, when a perfectly healthy father-son relationship suddenly turns for the worse the exact moment the mother gets served in a court case. When all of the sudden you go from talking every other night to not at all. When you get a letter saying you are the worlds worst father depsite getting a letter 4 months previously on Fathers day saying ” You’re the Best Father” or mimicking adult phrases and behavior, You can argue over the term Parental Alienation and its validity all you want to in the mean time there are Families,Fathers and Mothers and worst of all the Children who are being exposed to this most heinous of mental abuse. Here is one last thing I will say about it.. How can you accept the concept of Munchausen Syndrome by proxy or stockholm syndrome and not entertain the possibility that a mother can alienate a child from a perfectly healthy Parent Child Relationship albeit those are certainly extreme comparisons but none the less a compelling argument.. Please if you can convince me that this is a normal and healthy childhood behavior for a 9 year old boy, that will eventually work out on its own then I welcome it and pray that you are correct.. Thank you for replying to my post I appreciate your time and attention

The purpose of this forum is to help with your tactics and strategy in dealing with exactly the problems you describe with your son, however that requires you to re-think some of your core beliefs. Let’s get some other items out of the way first:

What State do you reside in?
What is the status of your matter and current parenting plan?
When did you move out and why?

Parental Alienation
Alienation of Affection
Parental Alienation Syndrome

Hmmm . . . do you think it’s because these three phrases all have the word alienation in them? Because that is the only thing they have in common.

I chuckled at the alienation of affection – we haven’t seen one of those threads in awhile.

I know that some of our advocates have been accused of practicing law without a license. I admit that I have not looked into this as I (still) have a license. Take a look at this link if you wish to explore further.
