Arizona: The path to citizenship for border jumpers.
Well, guess what. The massive contempt of the Washington Establishment for the American people has met open rebellion in ... Arizona.
It’s being called the toughest crackdown on illegal immigration in the country. A bill requiring police to determine if a person is in the U.S. legally is expected to be signed into law by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. ... Under the bill, police would be required to question anyone they suspect of being undocumented. The bill also targets those who hire illegal immigrant day laborers or knowingly transport them.Naturally, CNN being CNN, it adds its own slant, before even describing the contents of the bill: "Immigration advocate Isabel Garcia says the bill 'legalizes racial profiling.' "
Stuff white progressives like.
Arizonans, on the sharp end of the Mexican Invasion, have had enough and are making it illegal to be an illegal Mexican colonist. The original American federalist system, in which states are a check on the inevitable tendency for a central government to annex as much power to itself as possible, isn't dead yet. It is coming back to life and just might bring liberty back to life.
Well, guess what. No, you don't need to guess. The Failed Messiah, worried that his plan for putting 30 million illegals in his pocket for the next election faces resistance, calls the Arizona bill "misguided." Can't have American citizens protecting their lives and property. If that sounds exaggerated, consider the case of rancher Robert Krentz, murdered on his ranch near Douglas, Arizona.
(A younger, more innocent me stayed overnight in Douglas and walked across the border to Agua Prieta, Mexico. Agua Prieta was a sad little town and not overtly sinister; I bought a pair of miniature concha straps to adorn my western boots, and still have them. What I remember most was the strange vibes on the Douglas side. The woman desk clerk at the motel, a few hundred feet from the border crossing, stiffened a little when I mentioned my plans to look around Agua Prieta. "If you cross in the daytime, they'll probably leave you alone," she said. Who would "probably" leave me alone? She would not be drawn further into the discussion. In retrospect, I am pretty sure the motel I stayed at was a clearinghouse for dope deals. Who knows, maybe I occupied a room where an argument had been settled with a knife or pistol. I had such creepy feelings it was hard to sleep that night.)
"Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe," the president said at a naturalization ceremony for members of the military.
"In fact, I've instructed members of my administration to closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation. But if we continue to fail to act at the federal level, we will continue to see misguided efforts opening up around the country."
He added, "As a nation, as a people, we can choose a different future - a future that keeps faith with our history, with our heritage, and with the hope that America has always inspired in the hearts of people all over the world."
He really loves that Caesarian swagger, doesn't he? "I've instructed members of my administration ... ."
But he's right about one thing. As a nation, as a people, we can choose a different future than the population replacement he would enforce, or "instruct members" of "his" country to submit to.
