Politicians, elected officials and senior government officials do not read or understand our laws. They elect to just voice opinion and use political talking points. For example, Obama and Holder have not read the Arizona law that targets illegals, let alone the health care legislation, the TARP, or the Cap & Trade or the financial plan going through Congress.
Eric Holder looked like a "FOOL" when testifying in front of Congress when he said that he disagreed with the Arizona law, but then admitted that he had not read the legislation. Also, he could not bring himself to say anything against "radical Islam". We need a new AG.
U.S. attorney Eric Holder doesn’t like Arizona’s SB 1070 that addresses illegal aliens in that state. Unfortunately, he failed to read it! It mirrors federal statutes voted into law in 1986. President Barack Obama thinks it’s misguided, but again, he didn’t read it. Our U.S. Congress continues its indolent dance through the corridors of power while doing next to nothing—while citizens in fifty states celebrate with a 73 percent approval rating supporting Arizona’s right to secure its borders. Arizona expects to eject 460,000 illegal aliens—creating financial, criminal, medical, educational and incarceration havoc in that state. Ten other states enjoy legislators expecting to introduce SB 1070 in their own states.
La Raza, Maldef, Lulac, CASA of Maryland, and other open borders advocates hate the law—because it works! Illegals are law-breakers----they understand it, but want political cover.
Much like the wisdom of our third president Mr.Thomas Jefferson, he said that ultimate power must be administered by the states in the Union because they best could handle their own problems. For the past 30 years, the Federal Government under five presidents and Congresses—failed on every level to enforce immigration laws throughout the country, whether at the border or internally. The Congress winked, nodded, curtsied and blinked while 20 million illegal aliens walked, danced, lied, cheated, stole, forged and overstayed their visas into America.
Corporations like McDonald’s, Tyson Chicken, Hormel, Swift, Armor, Marriott and dozens of others lied, cheated and displaced American workers out of jobs—all in the name of profits and undermining American workers. In every state, roofing companies, construction firms, landscapers, contract painters and hotel-restaurant chains lied (still lie) through their teeth to hire illegals. Ski resorts and summer camps lied, cheated and hired incredible numbers of illegal aliens—for obscene profits.
Every time any citizens attempted to inject the ‘rule of law’ into the equation, they suffered names like ‘racist’, ‘xenophobe’, ‘nativist’ and ‘hate-monger’. In reality, they demanded nothing more than the rule of law applied against those that broke the law!
While illegals rioted in the streets of Phoenix, Arizona when Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, Americans from sea to shining sea said, “It’s about time!” Today, ten other states including Pennsylvania, Minnesota, South Carolina and Texas stand in line to enact similar laws using the Arizona template. As the worm turns, and as said so often in history, when the people lead, the leaders will follow. Fancy that!
During the days before Brewer’s signing the bill, U.S. Senator John McCain, perhaps the most ineffectual senator as to border security for over 30 years, stepped up to the microphone to urge Governor Brewer to sign the bill. Why? He’s about to lose his senate seat that he cherishes more than life itself! Why would anyone hang onto the seat of power well beyond his useful years? Hubris! False pride and ego gratification! He’s been an ineffective senator for three decades.
We support JD....and want to see McCain retire.
Note that Thomas Jefferson urged ‘term limits’ back in 1776! He knew that old men hate to give up their power—just like the ‘royals’ of Europe—whom he hated! We need a change to our laws so politicians do not get retirement, have term limits, and no other benefits.

The below is important to read so you understand why AZ wants to stop illegal immigration, gangs, drug runners, etc.
"I want to explain why SB 1070 is needed"
I’m Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen. I want to explain SB 1070 which I voted for and was just signed by Governor Jan Brewer. Rancher Rob Krentz was murdered by the drug cartel on his ranch a month ago. I participated in a senate hearing two weeks ago on the border violence, here is just some of the highlights from those who testified.
The people who live within 60 to 80 miles of the Arizona/Mexico Border have for years been terrorized and have pleaded for help to stop the daily invasion of humans who cross their property . One Rancher testified that 300 to 1200 people a DAY come across his ranch vandalizing his property, stealing his vehicles and property, cutting down his fences, and leaving trash. In the last two years he has found 17 dead bodies and two Koran bibles.
Another rancher testified that daily drugs are brought across his ranch in a military operation. A point man with a machine gun goes in front, 1/2 mile behind are the guards fully armed, 1/2 mile behind them are the drugs, behind the drugs 1/2 mile are more guards. These people are violent and they will kill anyone who gets in the way. This was not the only rancher we heard that day that talked about the drug trains.
One man told of two illegal’s who came upon his property one shot in the back and the other in the arm by the drug runners who had forced them to carry the drugs and then shot them. Daily they listen to gun fire during the night it is not safe to leave his family alone on the ranch and they can’t leave the ranch for fear of nothing being left when they come back.
The border patrol is not on the border. They have set up 60 miles away with check points that do nothing to stop the invasion. They are not allowed to use force in stopping anyone who is entering. They run around chasing them, if they get their hands on them then they can take them back across the border.
Federal prisons have over 35% illegal’s and 20% of Arizona prisons are filled with illegal’s. In the last few years 80% of our law enforcement that have been killed or wounded have been by an illegal.
The majority of people coming now are people we need to be worried about. The ranchers told us that they have seen a change in the people coming they are not just those who are looking for work and a better life.
The Federal Government has refused for years to do anything to help the border states. We have been over run and once they are here we have the burden of funding state services that they use. Education cost have been over a billion dollars. The healthcare cost billions of dollars. Our State is broke, $3.5 billion deficit and we have many serious decisions to make. One is that we do not have the money to care for any who are not here legally. It has to stop. The border can be secured. We have the technology we have the ability to stop this invasion. We must know who is coming and they must come in an organized manner legally so that we can assimilate them into our population and protect the sovereignty of our country. We are a nation of laws. We have a responsibility to protect our citizens and to protect the integrity of our country and the government which we live under.
I would give amnesty today to many, but here is the problem, we dare not do this until the Border is secure. It will do no good to forgive them because thousands will come behind them and we will be over run to the point that there will no longer be the United States of America but a North American Union of open borders. I ask you what form of government will we live under? How long will it be before we will be just like Mexico, Canada or any of the other Central American or South American countries? We have already lost our language, everything must be printed in Spanish also. We have already lost our history it is no longer taught in our schools. And we have lost our borders.
The leftist media has distorted what SB 1070 will do. It is not going to set up a Nazi Germany. Are you kidding. The ACLU and the leftist courts will do everything to protect those who are here illegally, but it was an effort to try and stop illegal’s from setting up businesses, and employment, and receiving state services and give the ability to local law enforcement when there is probable cause like a traffic stop to determine if they are here legally. Federal law is very clear if you are here on a visa you must have your papers on you at all times. That is the law. In Arizona all you need to show you are a legal citizen is a driver license, MVD identification card, Native American Card, or a Military ID. This is what you need to vote, get a hunting license, etc.. So nothing new has been added to this law. No one is going to be stopped walking down the street etc… The Socialist who are in power in DC are angry because we dare try and do something and that something the Socialist wants us to do is just let them come. They want the “Transformation” to continue.
Maybe it is too late to save America. Maybe we are not worthy of freedom anymore. But as an elected official I must try to do what I can to protect our Constitutional Republic. Living in America is not a right just because you can walk across the border. Being an American is a responsibility and it comes by respecting and upholding the Constitution the law of our land which says what you must do to be a citizen of this country. Freedom is not free.

Reading the October 31, Gazette article entitled, “Critics decry immigrant detention” has left me stunned that an elected official in Maryland would pressure Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger not to do his job and enforce the law. Then again I am not surprised, since that official is Del. Ana Sol Gutierrez (D-Dist. 18) of Chevy Chase. Gutierrez has a long record of supporting illegal immigrants and “open borders”, despite her own legal entry into the United States from her native El Salvador many years ago.
We need a clear message to illegal immigrants—we find you, we detain you, you get charged with a crime and then you are deported.
