Battle Lines Drawn in Illegal Immigration War

The battle lines cannot be drawn more clearly. Here are the two sides in the great illegal immigration war of our time. Join the right side — and fight for America.

The Outlaws and their enablers

Leading the outlaws is none other than the imposter who calls himself President of the United States. Immediately after the Arizona immigration bill, S.B. 1070, became law, Obama declared it “misguided” and “irresponsible” and ordered the Dept. of Justice to challenge the law’s legality.
Demonrats in Congress, leftwing religious leaders and activists urge a boycott of hotels, convention centers and other economic targets in Arizona. At least one nationwide group cancelled a convention planned for this fall. Scores of lorry drivers have threatened to stop carrying loads to and from the state. San Francisco city attorney Dennis Herrera called the Arizona law “extremist” and urged city departments to look at contracts with Arizona that could be terminated.
Pro-illegal immigration rallies are being planned for May Day, the International Workers Day celebrated by all communists, in more than 70 U.S. cities. “The marches and demonstrations are going to be far more massive than they otherwise would have been,” vowed Juan Jose Gutierrez, a Los Angeles rally organizer who runs an immigration assistance company.
Lastly, the government of Mexico — a country with a tough immigration policy which annually deports more illegals than the U.S. — has the temerity as to issue a warning to Mexicans who are planning to travel or live in Arizona. Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affair says, “As long (as) no clear criteria are defined for when, where and who the authorities will inspect, it must be assumed that every Mexican citizen may be harassed and questioned without further cause at any time.” The government points out that Mexican nationals in the United States, regardless of their immigration status, have inalienable human rights and can resort to protection mechanisms under international law, U.S. law and Arizona law. It adds that the Mexican consulates in Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, Nogales and Douglas provide legal advice to all Mexicans who are abused by the authorities. Non-governmental organizations have also announced their intention or support. Meanwhile, the government of Sonora, Mexico, has canceled the upcoming meeting of the Sonora-Arizona Commission scheduled for the first week of June.

On the side of the law

The state of Utah is following Arizona’s lead. Rep. Stephen Sandstrom (R-Orem) has started work on drafting a bill for the 2011 Utah legislative session that uses Arizona’s new Immigration Law as a model. Sandstrom says the law is needed in order to stanch the flow of illegal immigrants into Utah because “In the past, when we’ve seen tougher legislation in Arizona … a lot of illegal immigrants just move here.”

Texas, too, is planning to introduce a tough immigration measure similar to Arizona’s. Rep. Debbie Riddle (R-Tomball) said she will push for the law in the January legislative session: “The first priority for any elected official is to make sure that the safety and security of Texans is well-established. If our federal government did their job, then Arizona wouldn’t have to take this action, and neither would Texas.”

Alabama, too, is toughening up. Republican candidate for governor, Tim James (son of previous Gov. Fob James), vows in a new campaign ad that if he’s elected, he’ll give the state driver’s license exam only in English, as a cost-saving measure. “This is Alabama; we speak English,” he says in the ad. “If you want to live here, learn it.”
In California, at a TEA party gathering in Ramona on Saturday, April 24, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) said he does not believe children born to illegal immigrant parents should get automatic U.S. citizenship. When someone in the crowd asked if he would support the deportation of children born to illegal immigrants, he said, “I would have to. We simply cannot afford what we’re doing right now, California’s going under. We’re not being mean. We’re just saying it takes more than just walking across the border to become an American citizen. It makes sense that if the parents of illegal immigrant children are deported, that their children go with them.”
Hunter also said he supports a bill, House Resolution 1868, that would eliminate automatic citizenship for those children. Currently, the Constitution grants citizenship to anyone born on U.S. soil. More than 90 congressional representatives support federal legislation to eliminate automatic citizenship for children born on U-S soil.
Drudge reports that Arizona residents are organizing counter-boycott of Mexican food restaurants and travel to Mexican resorts.
Finally, Arizonans are showing their approval of the new immigration law via a 16% increase in approval ratings for their governor. 56% of the state’s voters now approve of the way Brewer is performing her role as governor, whereas two weeks ago, just 40% approved.

  1. On the side of the law-all I can say “It’s about Damn Time”!

     
  2. Eowyn I know Cali is going to be rough, to many years of entitlements for illegals but I wish you and your state the best. It’s time to clean house.

     
  3. One more thing. You know what really bugs the snot out of me? Watching people drape themselves in Old Glory while simultaneously thumbing their noses at us. IF you claim to respect and love the flag enough to wear it you must respect the laws that flag represent as well and not use it just as an accessory for political points.

     
  4. This is just getting out of control and is going to be worse than the Prop 8 debate in CA (which is going to be heard by fed court in June)…what part of ILLEGAL do you not get?
    Mayor of Seattle came out today saying he’ll boycott AZ, good lefty twit that he is. My mom (in Tucson) is pissed and “would boycott AZ if I could”. Told her to send me her monthly SS check and I’d spend it here in WA ST – HA!
    Next March for my annual trip to Spring Training in Arizona I’m going to stay longer & spend MORE money there!

     
  5. Well, we conservatives know where we stand. I wonder what the unemployment rate would be in AZ if we shipped the 460,000 Illegals out of there and back to their respective countries. I also wonder if California could finally get their budget under control if they shipped all their illegal welfare recipients back to their homes. I also wonder what would happen to the crime rates in those states. California has more Hispanic gangs that cause more crime than any other state. Then I wonder if we dumped all the unnecessary welfare if budgets would come back in line. Just wondering why we don’t just send them all out of our country and kick the progressives out in the ocean with a day’s supply of food and water. No possibility of returning. I’d be happy to yell after them—‘Sink or swim.’

  6. Governor Brewer for President

     
  7. People need to do some investigating and find as many businesses as they can that are based in Arizona. We then need to go out of our way to support as many as possible. We are Americans, and we are tired of being pushed aside for people who just walk across the border. ENOUGH, dammit!!

     
  8. Damn, what a hideous mess. 🙁

  9. I don’t know the exact verbiage in the law, because I have not read it in its totality. But I believe the term, “suspect” is used, which would not mean that every Latino or Hispanic individual would be stopped and asked for their papers. I listened to a Latino representative in Arizona say that he supported the law and that it does not say what people are saying it maintains. I cannot remember his name, but he was on CBS news.

     
  10. Joan, here’s text of the law:
    http://www.azleg.gov/legtext/49leg/2r/bills/sb1070h.pdf
    It’s my understanding that a person may be questioned ONLY if they are stopped for another infraction of the law (speeding, burglary, etc.) I believe AZ is going to clarify this so that no one can be stopped because of their ethnicity. Hope this helps.

  11. Thank you Muffin!

     
  12. Incidentally Muffin, I have printed out the bill and will review it carefuly. At first blush, I see nothing racist about it and it also verifies the importance of upholding federal immigration laws.

     
    • Joan & Muffin,
      Please see my new post “Fact Sheet on Arizona Immigration Law.” It’s easy to read and lays everything out clearly.
      http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2010/04/30/fact-sheet-on-arizona-immigration-law/
      It’s clear that the demagogues railing against Arizona are deliberately mis-representing the law.

       
      • Thanks, Eowyn. You know I have a very short term memory! 🙂 Now, what was I saying…….
        Illegitimis nil carborundum – Don’t let the bastards grind you down

         
        • Never mind. Brain malfunction. Been using my fingers too much today ranting about too many things. I didn’t realize this was a NEW post. Sigh. Thanks for sorting it out for us, Eowyn. You work too hard! You need to take a break occasionally, but we ALL appreciate your efforts!
          Illegitimis nil carborundum – Don’t let the bastards grind you down

           
    • Joan, you are most welcome. This is a ploy by the left to make the GOP out to be racists. You did hear the chicken-in-chief say that if someone went out to get an ice cream and didn’t have the proper papers, they could be arrested and detained. What a bunch of baloney! This bill is supposed to mirror the federal law. Since the feds don’t care about our borders, the states will have to take matters into their own hands. I honestly believe this should be done at the federal level instead of the state level, but something has to be done to stop all this violence. In July, my oldest daughter will be moving to Tucson, and this violence on the border has me very concerned.
      Just so you know, I never curse anymore, but I couldn’t resist this signature:
      Illegitimis nil carborundum – Don’t let the bastards grind you down
