Arizona’s new law is almost identical to federal immigration law. At issue however, is how it is enforced.
The federal government says the state law is unconstitutional because it usurps federal authority to protect U.S. borders and American citizens. My question is why aren’t they doing it?
In its lawsuit challenging the Arizona law, the Justice Department says its policy is to focus on dangerous immigrants: gang members, drug traffickers, threats to national security. Otherwise law-abiding immigrants without documentation should pretty much be left alone.
Would it be too much to ask one of you Washington D.C. rocket scientists to explain how you can determine who is just the ordinary garden variety law-abiding illegal immigrant, and who comes under the heading of the other enumerated classifications above?
The morons being led by Janet Napolitano at the Department of Homeland Security say the government couldn’t possibly find, arrest and deport everyone who is here illegally. Why not?
If memory serves President Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens during the Great Depression so as to make jobs available for Americans, Harry Truman deported over 2 million illegal’s after WWll to create jobs for returning veterans, and again in 1954 Dwight D. Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals: the program was called Operation Wetback.
If they could do it then, we sure as hell should be able to do it today!
What would be required, is for Napolitano to get off her FAT BUTT and do it!
The federal government says treating 12 million illegal immigrants as criminals would overwhelm the system: NEWS FLASH THEY ARE CRIMINALS!
A study in March by the liberal Center for American Progress estimated that deporting the entire illegal population and securing the border would cost $285 billion over 5 years.
This is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook (one of Obama’s heroes), take the country down by overwhelming the whole system, banking/financial, industrial/car makers, social security and pension plans, in other words put us so far into debt that we can never hope to pay our obligations or climb out of the financial hole he and his henchmen have put us in.
I almost forgot, Rhode Island has been carrying out the procedures that are at issue in Arizona concerning immigration statutes for quite a while and doing quite nicely, thank you very much indeed.
Obama says there is a federal preemption issue, if that is true then why haven’t he and Holder sued Rhode Island, and the Arizona law hasn’t even gone into effect yet?
The Supreme Court in Muehler Vs Mena has already held that police do not need a reason (not probable cause, nor reasonable suspicion) to ask a person about their immigration status.
Just this past February, in Estrada Vs Rhode Island, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld the Rhode Island procedures, reasoning that, in Muehler Vs Mena, the Supreme Court “held that a police officer does not need independent reasonable suspicion to question an individual about his/her immigration status.”
Andy McCarthy (a blogger on National Review on line) summed it up very well:
“We have a Justice Department that drops a case it already won against New Black Panthers who are on tape intimidating voters in blatant violation of Federal Law, but that sues a sovereign state for enacting a statute in support of immigration enforcement practices that have already been upheld by two of the nations highest courts. PERFECT!
