Say what you will, but the Governor of Arizona has more of a set of balls than Obama does, and the Governor is a broad.
It’s about time ALL the border states follow Arizona’s lead and enact the same kind of legislation. If the Federal government refuses to protect our sovereign borders, then the states have no choice but to do it themselves. In fact, I believe a state should always have the right to make its own laws. If they want to make being an illegal alien a crime, especially if these illegals are terrorizing and murdering our citizens, they should be allowed to do so.
All this crappola about civil rights being violated is nothing but a red herring. Any police officer in this country has not only the right to ask a person to show proof of who they are, if the officer has probable cause to believe the suspect is in violation of the law, it is in fact his sworn duty to do so. Try going to the airport and boarding a plane without showing proof of identity. (By the way, would YOU like to board a plane where they haven't asked anyone for ID?) Better yet, try gaining access to this country through normal border checkpoints and see what happens if you can’t prove who you are. Are people, both citizens or non-citizens, having their civil rights violated when they are asked for ID at the airport or border crossings checkpoints? I don’t think so. If I’m in the vicinity of a bank robbery and I match a general description of the bank robber, it’s not a violation of my civil rights to be stopped by a police officer and asked for ID. Conversely, if a police officer sees ten people standing around a location where it is known that illegal aliens congregate to be picked up for day laborer jobs, it is not a violation of anyone’s civil rights if he is stopped and asked for ID.
This political correctness crap, and the liberals in this country who refuse to act responsibly when it comes to illegal immigration, in fear of pissing off some minority group or people who are either in this country illegally or who have entered legally but who are hell bent on staying and doing us harm, has resulted in this country being left open to terrorist threats and was almost certainly responsible for the deaths on 9-11.
It’s time to wake up and smell the crappola they’ve been dishing out. The liberals only kow-tow to these groups who have a problem with securing our borders, and who oppose stopping the flow of illegal aliens into this country, because the liberal Democrats have these groups in their back pocket as a voting block.
The United States should have the same right and privilege to protect her sovereign borders that EVERY other country has and maintains. Never forget that as soon as someone enters this country illegally, the same as if someone enters my home illegally, THEY ARE AUTOMATCIALLY A CRIMINAL.
