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.
