Is the Arizona Immigration Law Racist???

Is the new Arizona anti-illegal immigration law Racist?  I have to say no.  What the new law does is require all State run law enforcement agencies to enforce the Immigration laws of the nation.  Does it some how violate the “supremacy clause” of the US Constitution?  No because the law will require the States law enforcement to enforce the Federal Law.  Does it give the cops the right to stop anybody “who looks like an ‘illegal’?”  No but it does require that if law enforcement is called into a case that they find out the legal status of those involved. 

Below are some of the major points from the Law found on azleg.gov’s website:

Enforcement of Immigration Law

  • Prohibits law enforcement officials and law enforcement agencies of this state or counties, municipalities and political subdivisions from restricting or limiting the enforcement of the federal immigration laws to less than the full extent permitted by federal law.
  • Requires officials and agencies to reasonably attempt to determine the immigration status of a person involved in a lawful contact where reasonable suspicion exists regarding the immigration status of the person, except if the determination may hinder or obstruct an investigation.
  • Stipulates that if the person is arrested, the person’s immigration status must be determined before the person is released and must be verified with the federal government.
  • Stipulates that a law enforcement official or agency cannot solely consider race, color or national origin when implementing these provisions, except as permitted by the U.S. or Arizona Constitution.
  • Specifies that a person is presumed to be lawfully present if the person provides any of the following:

Ø        A valid Arizona driver license.

Ø        A valid Arizona nonoperating identification license.

Ø        A valid tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification.

Ø        A valid federal, state or local government issued identification, if the issuing entity requires proof of legal presence before issuance.

  • Requires that if a person is convicted of any state or local law, on discharge from imprisonment or on the assessment of any monetary obligation imposed, ICE or U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) must be immediately notified. 
  • Authorizes a law enforcement agency to securely transport an unlawfully present alien to a federal facility.
  • Allows a person who is a legal resident of this state to bring an action in superior court to challenge officials and agencies of the state, counties, cities, towns or other political subdivisions that adopt or implement a policy that limits or restricts the enforcement of federal immigration laws to less than the full extent permitted by federal law.
  • Stipulates that these provisions are to be implemented consistent with federal immigration law protecting the civil right of all persons and respecting the privileges and immunities of US citizens.” (from the overview on the new Arizona Law)

As you can see in red the new law does not allow for cops to stop someone using racial profiling and they must follow the rules and laws that are set up to protect peoples Civil Rights.  The Arizona law makers are stupid people they would not have written a law that demands cops go out and routinely violates people’s Civil Rights.  They are not looking to be sued what they are trying to do is step up enforcement of the Federal Immigration Laws because the Federal Government will not secure our borders.

As is clearly stated above the Arizona government did not hand the police the power to profile the people of Arizona or the ability to just stop someone without reasonable suspicion of their immigration status but that did not stop the President from lying about what this law does:

“”This law that just passed in Arizona, which I think is a poorly conceived law,” said Obama in a speech at an Iowa community college.

“You can try to make it really tough on people who look like illegal immigrants,” he added. “You can imagine if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona and your great-great grandfather may have been there even before Arizona was a state?

“If you didn’t have your papers and you took your kids out for ice cream, you could be harassed,” added Obama.” (from Politico)

Ok so the President just gave a very stupid hypothetical situation so let see if I can give a better one.  You’re a police office riding down the road and you are coming up on a corner where it is known that illegals hang out waiting for work can the cop stop them and demand their papers?  I’m betting the answer is no, but is it not reasonable to ask for the proof of citizenship of people who are loitering in an area known for illegals waiting for work?  Is this harassment, a violation of Civil Rights?

Finally Arizona is going to be including new rounds of training on how to properly look for people who are in this nation illegally:

“Police association board member Ken Crane, who joined Spencer in standing behind Brewer last week, said the union would be willing to work with the state training board to help craft a standard for training Arizona police on the new law. But he added that the governor’s executive order calling for additional training was simply an “extra layer of comfort” for the public.

The new law, Crane said, prohibits officers from targeting people based on race, national origin and other identifying factors.

Every rookie officer is trained extensively at the police academy on how to judge probable cause and reasonable suspicion. Crane said whatever training is developed should reinforce long-standing police standards. “It’s basic police work that’s never changed,” he said. “We’re not reinventing the wheel here.” (from the AZCentral.com)

In conclusion is this new law a law of rampant Racism, Discrimination and the reinvention of Nazism because the Arizona government is demanding that people show a valid US idea to prove their legal status?  If so why is it not Nazism for someone who goes and buys beer, to pay to see an R rated movie or buy a video game rated M.  All these events you must show your idea to prove that you are old enough for these activities and no one thinks twice about it, but if you are asked to prove you actually live here and are here legally that’s a problem???  If this how you think i DARE you to go and sneak into Mexico without the proper “papers” and see what happens to you.  It is the responsiblity of the State to protect its citizens and to enforce its laws and in this case Arizona is doing its job and the Federal government is not.

Illegal Immigration is not Immigration!

Violence in Arizona By Proterstors!

So here’s a real simple question where are the politicians, the media and others demanding that pro-illegal immigrants Protestors toned down their redirect.  Here are groups that actually engages in acts of violence but you don’t hear a word from the Democrats about fearing the specter of the violence from the 1960’s and 70’s.  These people in the media and the politicians have lost any creditability when it comes to condemning the peaceful actions of the TEA Party movement.

Not only that but the President calls on all sorts of Minority groups to stand with him in opposing this “misguided” law in Arizona but he ignores whites in America.  Mr President I thought you were going to be the great uniter not a divider???

Whatever happened with that anyways?  Oh well.

How to Handle Immigration Reform?

In the past week Immigration Reform has skyrocketed to the forefront of the national conversation thanks in part to the new anti-illegal immigration bill just passed in Arizona.  The new law was singed on April 23, 2010 by Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer.  Hours before the signing of the new law President Obama characterized Arizona’s attempt to enforce our nations Immigration laws as “misguided”.

“Obama said the federal government must act responsibly to reform national immigration law — or “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,” Obama said.”

The problem with what the President said is not that Arizona is some how being unfair or irresponsible in enforcing the nation’s law, it’s the National government that is the problem.  For years now under Clinton, under George W. Bush and now Obama the federal government has done next to nothing to stop illegal immigration.  As a matter of fact they and leftist groups push the idea that if you try to enforce our nation’s immigration laws that it is some how a racist act. 

How can enforcing immigration laws be racist?  And if you do not do so are you not implying that there is no law in the US that should be enforced just because some may find it racist?

I must ask you this if our anti-illegal immigration laws are racist then why does it apply to all races?  Is the Arizona law going to mainly focus on Mexicans?  Yes.  And why is that?  Because the largest number of illegal immigrants in Arizona are not from Kenya, Chad, China, Russia or Switzerland but are from Mexico.  If Canadians were flocking across our boarders illegally by the millions then by God we should be kicking them out to, but in this case it is Mexican citizens that are flocking into our nation by the millions.

Did you know that Mexico uses it’s military and police to enforce their immigration laws to stop people fleeing into Mexico from their Southern border?  And why wouldn’t they, and for that matter can you name one nation on Earth that will not enforce their Immigration laws besides the United States of America.  If I was to leave here today, fly to Europe and try to enter anyone of the nations in Europe without permission guess what people they would kick me out and send me back home. 

So what is the problem with enforcing our laws?  Is it because it some how violates an illegal immigrants civil rights, is it racist, or are the American people just mean and nasty people???

No the problem is votes.  The Republican party has been afraid to properly fix our immigration laws and enforce them as they stand because they fear losing the hispanic vote and the Democrats want as many illegals as possible to be given citizenship in hopes of courting their votes.

Ultimately the American people must ask themselves are we a nation of laws or are we not?  Because by ignoring the illegals that cross our border the Government is failing to do their duty by enforcing our laws.  Worse yet we are allowing thousands if not tens of thousands of illegal criminals, murders, rapist and drug dealers into our country.  It has consequences people.  Atlanta, GA is in a fight with the illegal immigrant Mexican Drug cartels here, in Arizona people have been killed by people crossing the border illegally and in Texas the people were threatened by the Drug Cartels who said they will cross the border and start killing US Citizens.

The Arizona law maybe struck down by the courts but at least they are trying to protect their citizens and maybe soon we can have a National Government that will protect us the American Citizens and not the illegals.

Joe Klein You Are the Gasbag!

It’s Democratic hacks like this that are killing off the printed news media. In a statement on the Times blog today he defend his comments the other day on the Chris Matthew Show were he accused Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck of being “close to seditious”:

“On the Chris Mathews Show Sunday, I said that some of the right-wing infotainment gasbags — people like Glenn Beck etc. — were nudging up close to the edge of sedition. This has caused a bit of a self-righteous ruckus on the right,” Klein wrote. “Let me be clear: dissent isn’t sedition. Questioning an Administration’s policies isn’t sedition. But questioning an Administration’s legitimacy in a manner intended to undermine or overthrow it certainly is.”  (From the Politico)

In attempt to cover himself and other left-wing groups who always bash Republican administrations he claims that its ok to question the government but then he try’s to claim that Beck and Palin come close to undermining or wanting to overthrow the government.  What a joke!  While Beck is a loud mouth moron (most of the time) he is not out there telling people to over through the government.  This attack on Palin is an even bigger joke.  They HATE her so much because she is so effective.  There is no double talk from the woman she just says as she sees things and guess what she is not calling for the over through of the government either. 

Both Beck and Palin know that “an over through” is coming…its called elections and our Democratic Overlords are going to be thrown out on the street. 

These attacks on the Right have to stop.  Its one thing to criticize them but this is ridiculous.  Especially when you have nut jobs on the left like Code Pink trying to arrest Bush Administration people, people who made movies about Bush’s assassination.  The Leftist Media doesn’t jump all over these people but praises them.

 The day is coming when The Leftist Rag Papers and Media Channels will either be gone all together or Government owned just like NPR.

An Insult to Poland

After cancelling his plans to attend the funeral for the Polish President due to the Ash cloud over Europe how did President Obama honor his fellow Presidents Memory???  By playing his 32 round of golf since becoming President.  The President could have come on the air before or after the funeral to announce America’s spirit is with the Poles even if we can not be their in person, he could have gone to the Polish Embassy and had a moment of silence for our lost ally and signed the condolence book.  No the leader of the Free World showed his remorse by playing golf.  This was a classless move on part of our President and it was just one more insult to our nations many allies.

Hey Georgia Artist Get a Part Time Job!

“The Georgia House this week passed a $17.8 billion state budget that would eliminate the Georgia Council for the Arts, making Georgia the only state in the country without a state arts agency recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts. The matter will next be considered by the Senate.” (from the AJC)

Today Monday 4/19/10 a group of Artist will be marching in the streets of Atlanta where they will end their protest at the State Capital demanding that the State not cut the Georgia Council for the Arts.  Well in a time when the State is facing over a $1 billion deficit its time to start cutting things like the “Arts”.  It is not the job of the States or the Federal Government to be subsidizing artist who are too lazy to work for a living.  These artist can still “contribute” to society by creating their masterpieces but on their off hours instead of hanging out at the Starbucks until inspiration hits.

I know it’s “just not fair” to expect a starving artist to earn his or her own money to pay for their “art” but when a State is going broke paying for things like this its time to STOP paying for things like the arts.  The Arts program is a perfect example of an area in a States budget that should be one of the first things to go.  Unlike Policemen, Firemen, and Teachers artist are not needed for society to function.  Yes we need Arts BUT we do not need the Tax Payers paying for it.

So I repeat it time for Georgia Artist to get a job and stop leaching off of Society!

Dems Should Keep Smearing the TEA Party

Over the past year we have seen the Democrat Leadership of all shapes, color, and lack of IQ points smearing the TEA Party members as Anti-American, Nazi’s, Racist, KKK members.  I say Keep it Up Democrats!  What the Democratic Party has done is draw a huge amount of attention to a fledgling organization of everyday Americans and help boost their numbers.  Poll after Poll shows the American people have more trust in the TEA Party then in Congress, that they believe TEA Party Members to be better educated on the issues then the Members of Congress, and on and on. 

What the Democratic Party and its Leftist Media (I’m thinking of you CNN and MSNBC) are doing is smearing the people of this Country.  The problem for Democrats is this: you don’t have to be a member of a TEA Party to feel like your being taxed too much, that government spending is out of control, and that the government is ignoring the voices of the people.  These sentiments run across the political specter and when the Democratic Leadership is calling people with these very real fears: Crazy, Racist, Biggest, Homophobes, Tim McVeigh wannabes; they are turning off their own base and worse (for them) the magical Independents Base.

So I once again offer up this most sincere piece of advice: Keep it up President Obama and Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, CNN, MSNBC (the Marxist, Socialist,Obama News Broadcast Company).  Keep driving Independent Voters to the Republican party and watch your side lose big time in November!

Obama Bombs the Moon for Nothing!!!

Back on October 9, 2009 the Noble Peace Prize winner President Obama had the US Space Agency NASA take the unprecedented steps in bombing the moon.  Why would any President bomb Earths only moon?

The point of bombing the moon was simple, NASA was in search of water on the moon.  NASA was searching for a source of water which was the beginning stage of the US building a permanent base on the moon.

“From the standpoint of establishing lunar outposts, a key task is hunting for water ice that may lurk in the permanent, frigid darkness at the bottom of craters at the moon’s poles. Past spacecraft have yielded evidence of water.” (from the Christian Science Monitor)

Well today President Obama made his attack on the Moon pointless by declaring he will skip any more missions to the Moon.  So what is the Presidents big goals for NASA now??? He seeks to land a man on an asteroid…oh and one of moons of Mars.

Back in 2oo4 President George W Bush set into motion a new vision for NASA.  Stage one was a return to the Moon and a colonization of the Moon.  Step two would be sending the first man to Mars.  Now President Obama is killing the chance that America will be the first country to build a base on the moon. 

Before man can begin colonization of space we must start here in the shadows of our own planet.  This includes man built satellite habitats and building a base on the moon.  With NASA just three shuttle launches away from retiring the shuttle program it is hard to imagine how the US will be the first to achieve the goals President Bush set out for this wonderful Nation.

Congressman Paul Ryan on Obama’s Broken Promise

In Honor of Tax Day Representive Paul Ryan Exposes President Obama’s lie on new Taxes.

All throughout the 2008 election President Obama promised not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 but as with so many of the President’s Campaign promises this one has now been broken.  There are over 600 new taxes that are law and 14 have hit people making under $250,000.  While I will admit 14 does not sound that bad considering all the other taxes but remember the President said that not a single person making under the magical mark of $250,000 would see 1 cent in their taxes raised. 

Oh well so much for that promise.

Remember the Promise:

Now watch Representive Paul Ryan prove the lie:
