Stand With Arizona!

Stand with Arizona!

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer last week signed a new law, S.B. 1070, into effect, which authorizes local police to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant. Arizonans say the legislation is needed because the state can no longer cope with an estimated 450,000 illegal immigrants.

From all indication, Arizona’s new law has the support of a majority of both Arizonans and Americans across the nation. An overwhelming majority (70%) of Arizona voters support the law. A telephone survey by Rasmussen Reports found that 60% of voters nationwide favor such a law, while 31% are opposed. 77% of Republicans support the law along with 62% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Even among Democratic voters, half are in favor of the law.

Consistent with their disdain for the will of the People, the Left are mobilizing against the new law.

Immediately after S.B. 1070 became law, there was a pro-illegal immigration protest outside the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix to which the police were called. We have descended to a point in America where illegals — people who have defied and violated our laws — not only do not feel they did anything wrong, they get violent because one courageous state government finally has the guts to start enforcing existing laws!

Here’s a photo of a protester threatening the police [source]: 

"Bang bang!"

Led by their ring leader Obama, who called the Arizona law “misguided” and “irresponsible,” Demonrats in Congress, religious leaders and leftwing activists are urging a boycott of hotels, convention centers and other economic targets in Arizona. At least one nationwide group has responded by cancelling a convention planned for the autumn. Scores of lorry drivers were reported to have threatened to stop carrying loads to and from the state.

Among those calling for a sweeping boycott was the San Francisco city attorney, Dennis Herrera, who urged city departments to look at contracts with Arizona that could be terminated. Herrera said: “Arizona has charted an ominous legal course that puts extremist politics before public safety, and betrays our most deeply held American values.”

Extremist? The Arizona Immigration Law (S.B. 1070) merely calls for state officials, including the police, to actually ENFORCE already existing laws — the federal government’s immigration laws that the feds (specifically the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the primary authority for enforcing immigration laws) refuse to enforce.  To quote S.B. 1070 on the purpose of the Immigration Law:

Requires officials and agencies of the state and political subdivisions to fully comply with and assist in the enforcement of federal immigration laws and gives county attorneys subpoena power in certain investigations of employers. Establishes crimes involving trespassing by illegal aliens, stopping to hire or soliciting work under specified circumstances, and transporting, harboring or concealing unlawful aliens, and their respective penalties.

If the Left succeed in intimidating and thwarting Arizona, then all hope to do something about America’s illegal immigration problem is lost. We must support and stand with Arizona!

How we can help Arizona:

1. Support the Arizona TEA Party group. They are organizing counter-protests in support of the Immigration Law. Here’s their website.

2. Buy Arizona!!!

  • Are you planning a vacation? Go to Arizona!
  • Have some spare change? Buy from Arizona stores online! Go HERE.

3. ABC-15 in Phoenix, Arizona has an online poll, asking “Do you believe the proposed law making it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally is fair?” I  voted at 9:50 am, Tuesday, April 27, and the results were:

  • Yes: 84.4%
  • No: 13.2%
  • Not sure: 2.4%

Go HERE to take the poll!

  1. I called the Governor today and told staff to stand strong and this was the very best thing AZ can do for the country.

  2. Did you know that a senator (Demon-crat) from AZ has called for the boycott of his own state…did you not hear me HIS OWN STATE!!! What the hell are you going to tell your constituents when it’s time to be voted back in? “Vote for me as promise to take jobs away from AZ if you don’t let illegals to continue to brake laws?”

    It’s official the Dems have truly lost their minds.

  3. I read somewhere that someone said the new law in AZ is making it a CRIME to be an illegal immigrant.

    Is that an oxymoron or what???? Do people not understand the term “illegal?” We surely have been dumbed down. Sigh.

  5. God Bless Jan Brewer!

  6. extremist politics before public safety, and betrays our most deeply held American values

    I’m just at a loss for words…what part of extreme politics, public safety and American values does ILLEGAL aliens factor in? 83% of homicide warrants in AZ are for ILLEGALS. The SRM and left have truly lost their minds…

  7. The anti-communist rebellion has to start somewhere.

    May as well be Arizona.

    Okay so, basically, Arizona is trying to establish a law, much like the current Federal law, that says it is a crime to be an “illegal immigrant” so that the state may police itself since the feds ain’t doin’ such a bang up job…?

  10. You are all right but Tina gets my vote for good thinking. Arizona’s new law is stretching the ideals of the Constitution just a little but it is not in violation. Obama, being an illegal immigrant himself, has to protect the illegals. After-all, they’re his voting base, that and the rest of the uneducated, uninformed liberal idiots that voted for him. That number includes much of my own family. Maybe now that Arizona has stirred up the pot we can get our country back.

  11. I was watching the news about SF boycotting AZ. This issue seems to be heating up more than I thought it would. If San Fran pushes their boycott and Ariz. responds in kind there are 2500 San Fran employees working in Ariz. who could lose their jobs. That would be a tragedy for San Fran. They already have a 20% unemployment ratio. The entire state has proven under Governor Gray and now under Schwarzenegger that they are the dumbest governing body in the country and open to more ridicule than Arizona could ever be. Does anyone have any idea why liberals never learn that their policies do not work?

    • Because the Left do not “think” with their brains.

      But the real reason is this:

      You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them. (Isaiah 6:9-10)

  12. I’m almost positive Isaiah was talking about democrats.
