I was infuriated over MLB and others that are talking of boycotting Arizona. It is not enough that GOOD people are getting hurt and dying because of the FEDS not enforcing the immigration LAWS. Then Arizona does what the Feds aren't doing and there is outrage?
If you get stopped by law enforcement and you have a license from the US or heaven forbid a passport, after they were done, they would send you on your way. If you DON'T, they *can* detain you. Why do I like the idea of people that are possibly breaking the law, being temporarily detained? Why am I in favor of being stopped every day and asked if I live here? Maybe because I am sick and tired of playing by the rules and being a good citizen where these ILLEGAL Crimmigrants just "want to work." So that is ok if they break the law to get money and NOT pay taxes, or smuggle drugs and NOT pay taxes or shoot and kill innocent Americans just because they want to cross the border.
If you go to a bar, nightclub or liquor store, why don't they just believe you are 21 and take your word for it? Oh yeah, the silly little laws about being 21 to drink. When you write a check at a store, you need to show your ID to prove who you are. When you sign a contract, you need an ID for verification of who you are. When you vote, you need ID to show that you live there. When you go to another country, you need a Passport. Silly me.
I carry my license every day. I can go to the town hall in Natick, MA (where I was born) and get a certificate of birth with the raised stamp impression on it. I actually have a Passport (albeit expired). I would never imagine going to another country without any roots or any form of ID and demand a handout like these Crimmigrants have done for far too long.
Obama talks about being "FAIR." You or I break the law, we pay a fine or go to jail. These ILLEGALS come into this country and get handouts. House No. 4100 in MA keeps giving ILLEGALS benefits they DON'T deserve. What the hell is fair about that?
People complain about their civil liberties being violated. From Wiki, "Civil liberties are rights and freedoms that protect an individual from the state. Civil liberties set limits on the government so that its agents cannot abuse their power and interfere unduly with the lives of private citizens." This is NOT interfering with Civil liberties. Arizona is just checking that you are part of the U.S. and here legally so you get those liberties as part of your citizenship. Same ID as if you are 23 and you go to a nightclub and you have no ID, you are not getting in to the club.
Obama says "Indeed, our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. And that includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe." So people at the Federal level aren't doing their jobs. Why are they not fired? Obama stated in the middle of that quote "basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans" you have got to be kidding me. He said it.
But it just isn't the economic issues that are the problem. The truth is that illegal immigrants are also responsible for a dramatic increase in crime wherever they go as another Frosty Woolridge article pointed out recently....
Examples explode across America: 76 percent dropout rate in Detroit, Michigan high schools. Entrenched poverty. An astounding $35 million in goods shoplifted every day in America, honor killings of women now in America, mosques growing like flies in a barnyard, Muslim shootouts with FBI agents, first call for Sharia Law to be implemented in Detroit, Islamic calls to worship sounding over the once all American city. Another city, Los Angeles slowly returns to Mexican authority, language and culture. Every girl past 15 features a baby and most of those mothers cannot read past the fourth grade or work simple math. The Mexican "18th Street Gang" of 20,000 illegal aliens controls the drug trade in much of LA and police will not venture into their ghettos. MS-13 now in 40 American states. Millions of pounds of trash must be picked up as it is tossed all over LA. Chicago, Miami and Houston feature gangs, drugs and worse—all caused by mass immigration. Phoenix, Arizona features an astounding annual car theft rate of 57,000 vehicles to become the new "Car Theft Capital of the World."
Ok, President Obama, where are the "basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans?"
Boycott Arizona? Anyone who truly loves America would see this problem as the terrorism it is.
