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.
