The Federal government, in the name of the people of the United States of America, has sued the state of Arizona for passing a law that reinforces Federal immigration law at the state level, claiming the state has no authority to enforce Federal immigration laws.
The state of Arizona is being overrun by illegal aliens coming across the border by the thousands every year. The city of Phoenix is now the kidnapping capitol of the nation and the number two kidnapping location in the world, almost all due to illegal immigration. The Federal government, in an attempt to keep American citizens safe, has placed signs in the desert, approximately 100 miles from the Mexican border, warning Americans not to venture into the area because of the dangers posed by drug smugglers and human traffickers. Let me say it again – the Federal government, in an attempt to keep American citizens safe, has placed signs in the desert, approximately 100 miles from the Mexican border, warning Americans not to venture into the area because of the dangers posed by drug smugglers and human traffickers. I would love to know of any other country which, in order to “protect” its citizens, prevents its citizens from venturing close to the border rather than protect the border from outside assault. If anyone can name one, please do.
The majority of Americans, up to 70%, have voiced their agreement with the Arizona. They’ve expressed their dismay and anger at the Federal government for not taking action to stop and prevent illegal aliens from coming across the border and for seemingly not paying attention to the violence they bring with them. The sad truth is, it’s about votes, Hispanic votes, for both sides of the aisle. None of the politicians will take the necessary action to stop illegal entry into the country, particularly from Mexico, because they’re afraid they’ll lose Hispanic votes.
My main question is this: If up to 70% of Americans support the Arizona law and don’t support the Federal government’s stance, or lack thereof, on illegal immigration, shouldn’t the American people be consulted before the government sues one of its own states in the name of those people? I personally don’t want the government to sue the state of Arizona in my name. If the President disagrees with the new Arizona law he, and Eric Holder, should put their own names on the lawsuit. Please don’t use the “People of the United States” since most of those people are against the suit and in favor of the law.
I’m still in disbelief that the President of the United States is suing one of his own states. But what shocked me more was when President Obama invited Mexican President Felipe Calderon to speak to the U.S. Congress, where he berated Arizona for the new immigration law. It disgusts me that an elected American President would purposely invite the leader of any other country to the USA to talk badly about her. But then, President Obama doesn’t feel America is the greatest nation in the world and he wants to make sure no one else does either.
Mr. President, here is a suggestion for you. If you can’t serve, protect and be proud of this great nation you were elected to lead, please step down and allow someone to take your place who will do just that. Instead of apologizing to the rest of the world for America, apologize to the American people for being a complete disgrace and resign. Arizona doesn’t need you. I don’t need you. And neither do millions of other proud Americans.
