I love this take-charge attitude of Arizona politicians. Arizona passed an immigration enforcement bill that 70 percent of likely Arizona voters support. It is impacting Arizona (all states for that matter) and costing the state for the services these people access.
The federal government is not doing its immigration enforcement job. Obama's rebuttal even acknowledges the federal government's poor showing with border security, despite him calling the action "misguided".
In a typical Democrat response, President Obama called the Arizona bill "misguided" and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal. Opponents see it as a civil rights issue. What real rights do those here illegally actually have? Consider the pro-illegal positions:
-- "A thousand people a day are being deported. A thousand families being destroyed. And this comes at a very high moral and financial cost to this nation." They put themselves and their families in this situation. We are a nation of laws. We can't accept some and ignore others.
-- The law sends "a clear message that Arizona is unfriendly to undocumented aliens." And what's wrong with that?
-- It "launches Arizona into a spiral of pervasive fear, community distrust, increased crime and costly litigation, with nationwide repercussions." Overreaction!
-- "Police in Arizona already treat migrants worse than animals. There is already a hunt for migrants, and now it will be open season under the cover of a law." If this was the case, why do they risk the treatment? A bigger problem is not how we treat illegals but with their cesspool countries.
The law enforcement officers are not going to set up road blocks like the DHS Border Patrol does today. Nor are they going to question every Hispanic and ask for their papers. They are going to do what police have done for decades: act on probable cause.
I love being considered misguided by Obama and those that favor his politics. Obama and those that love his politics get real uncomfortable with those that do not goose-step to his diatribe and rhetoric.
Control the borders and remove those here illegally and we will have less crime, lower taxes (or expenditures to service the illegals), safer neighborhoods, shorter lines in the emergency rooms, and smaller classrooms. If you are here legally, then welcome. This is the America I want to live it.
