The Governor of Arizona signed a law the other day that basically says that it will now be illegal to be illegally in Arizona if you are an illegal alien. Wow, go figure, this begs the question, is that legal? Obama wants to know!
I think it is a shot across the bow by Arizona to Congress for not enforcing Federal laws on illegal immigration, against those caught in the United States. Someone had to start the ball rolling and Arizona has. It is good to see. I think it will have a snowball effect with the other South West states being forced to follow suit if they do not want to absorb all the overflow of illegals skirting around Arizona.
The problem has been ignored for far to long by D.C., states, i.e. (tax payers) can not sustain the financial burden of supporting hundreds of thousands of illegals,(in Arizona alone) indefinitely, in this economy, nor should the tax payer be made too. Hell, supporting the empty suits in Washington and all their lame brained ideas is a big enough burden on the tax payer these days as it is. Obviously they all want to curry favor with the illegals to gain the Hispanic vote, that’s as plain as Nancy Pelosi is clueless, a blind man could see it! Beware any sudden “comprehensive” immigration reform. You know what folks, it has always been against the law to come into the country by bypassing the the Immigration Department. Nothing needs to be reformed or reinvented, just enforced!
On the home front here in Massachusetts, The politicians are gearing up to show the angry voters that they really do care about the illegal immigration problem, suddenly, (on the heels of Arizona’s example) in light of the polls showing that 85% of Americans agree with Arizona. This is a perfect example of ‘a day late and a dollar short’.
Now our glorious Representatives want to enact legislation that would “force state departments offering taxpayer funded assistance to check the applicant with federal immigration authorities first”. I do not want to sound skeptical or cynical, but does this mean that before this possible ‘pending’ legislation, anyone who held out their hand for tax payer assistance in this state got it with no questions asked? And now our glorious leaders would have you believe that they DID NOT KNOW!? Come on! Where’s the broom? It is time to make a very clean sweep in November!
