The swirl of BS surrounding Arizona immigration law SB1070

These past few days have been a chore trying to both re acclimate myself to civilian life while also attempting to dive back into the treacherous world of politics and blogging! I thought the political atmosphere was hostile a month ago when I god, this nation seems to be on the brink of civil war now! At least that's my "unbiased" perception.

I've been trying to get up to speed on all the latest stories. The Goldman Sachs debauchery. Blah. The Gulf coast oil spill. I could care less. The passage of a controversial bill in Arizona that is causing thousands of illegals to take to the streets...hmm, now this could be juicy.

I'm sure this is all old news but I must rant regardless.

I am getting SICK and TIRED of listening to illegal immigrants bitch and moan about their "rights". As far as I'm concerned, they have no rights. They cheated the system. They came here illegally. I don't care if they are hard workers or not. As the numbers stand right now there are 22.7 million illegal immigrants living in America today costing LEGAL United States citizens 397 billion dollars annually in taxpayer money for social services such as health care and social security. Not to mention gobbling up jobs that unskilled citizens and young people just entering the workforce would do anything to have.

I'm sick and tired of "tolerant" liberals bending over backwards to accommodate the illegals every need (in exchange for their vote of course) while repeatedly chastising the right wing as insensitive bigots for not supporting the illegals' rights.

"It's racist," says Donna Sanchez, a 22-year-old U.S. citizen living in Chicago whose parents illegally crossed the Mexican border.

Let me tell you something Donna, and I'm sure the rest of us angry "prejudiced" conservatives will agree. If they were Canadians we would be just as irate. It's not about ethnicity you spineless dweebs. It's about millions of people breaking the law and the American taxpayer shouldering the burden of expense for their "stay". And of course our wonderful president, who is no greater in value than a heaping pile of moose dung in my opinion, sweet talks the illegals as if they are just as equal as legal American citizens, grooming them for their vote once he magically legalizes every last one. (How the Dems manage to pull that one off I have no idea.)

So in essence, this bill allows law enforcement officials in Arizona to inquire the citizenship status of anyone they deem suspicious or suspect to being an illegal immigrant. So, what's the big deal? I have to show my ID when I get pulled over anyway. I have to provide ID whenever I enter a military installation. Why is this so outrageous? Why are the bleeding heart teary eyed liberals bawling about racial discrimination and an infringement of civil rights?

Now we have tens of thousands of illegals, and even some legal hispanics and others, taking to the streets because they are mad the police can ask you to prove your citizenship status. Seriously, I think I'm about to have a brain hemorrhage.

From Los Angeles to Washington D.C., activists, families, students and even politicians marched, practiced civil disobedience and "came out" about their citizenship status in the name of rights for immigrants, including the estimated 12 million living illegally in the U.S.
Police said 50,000 rallied in Los Angeles where singer Gloria Estefan kicked off a massive downtown march. Estefan spoke in Spanish and English, proclaiming the United States is a nation of immigrants.

"We're good people," the Cuban-born singer said atop a flatbed truck. "We've given a lot to this country. This country has given a lot to us."
So now this is just an "immigrant" thing? You tell that to the old generation Italians, Germans, and Irish who came to this country LEGALLY for an opportunity, working their fingers to the bone, raising a family, and making something of themselves, never asking for a handout.

Don't fall for the leftist trap my friends. They will do all they can to paint you as an "immigrant" basher, when in reality we conservatives, most of us descended from immigrants, cherish the ideals the old immigrants embraced. Individualism. Hard work. Opportunity and American exceptionalism. Things far distant to the modern day American liberal who somehow believes they support immigrant rights.
The event resembled something between a family festival - food vendors strolled through with pushcarts - and a political demonstration with protesters chanting "Si se puede," Spanish for "Yes we can." A group of undocumented students stood on a stage at the Chicago park and "came out" regarding their immigration status.
Ok, time for the barf bag. "Si se puede?" Really? What's worse than hearing "Yes We Can"? Hearing it from a bunch of handout illegals in Spanish! Don't even get me started on the whole English/Spanish thing.

All I can say is this illegal immigrant "rights" crap has to stop. You came here illegally and now your violence is spilling over our border into states like Arizona where the crime rate has skyrocketed. This bill makes more than enough sense. So STFU.

Comprende amigo?

Welcome back Hack.

As you know 70% of us Arizonans support the law and are glad our state took action where the feds have not.

We also know where the progressives are at and that what they are really in support of is human trafficking.

Good post! As I understand it, illegal immigration TO Mexico is dealt with by an iron fist. Nothing like a bit of hypocracy to show things for what they really are.

You're right about it not being a color thing, but more of this kind of behavior could turn it into one. Frankly, I'm a bit resentful that my job moved out of state to be done by Mexicans in a NORTHERN state. But that's why there's inaction. The big companies are getting too much benefit from wage suppression to let serious immigration reform get anywhere.

Welcome back!

Actually over 70% of all Americans support the law which is worded exactly like the Federal law.

I won't do business with anyone who asks me to "press one for English".

The sight of Cardinal Mahony leading one of the marches made my blood boil. That poor excuse of a prelate can't retire soon enough (along with any of the bishops of my Church who pander to this nonsense.)

The progressives have infiltrated all big institutions to do their damage. No one is safe...

This isn't about the rights of illegal immigrants. This is about the rights of American citizens not to be detained for not having their papers. Period, end of story.

If you want to stop illegal immigrants though, go after the employers and fine them more than they save by hiring illegals. As long as someone is paying them to be here they will keep crossing the border no matter what we do.

Seventy percent of the people supporting something doesn't make it good law. What if seventy percent of a community decided that heroin being legalized is good?

Enforcing the law is racist. Only in liberal lala land does this make any sense...

This is the best rant yet on illegal immigration . . . just tweeted it!

Hack: I get extremely confused when I hear the arguments like:

The Illegals will do the jobs that Americans won’t.

Well, IF that’s the case, then, with a national unemployment rate of 10%, they are STEALING jobs from LEGAL citizens.

Or the contradictory argument of:

They work for slave wages.

IF that's the case then they AREN’T contributing to taxes [as we hear all the time] and if people [Illegals] can survive on “slave” wages, why do we need a “living wage” and why is Welfare so damn high?

I too am tired of hearing I’m a racist because I want LEGAL immigration. I don’t care where the border has been breached. If it’s the Northern border and they are Canadians, send them back to Canada. This has NOTHING to do with skin color and that argument is for people who fear the word “racist”, which I don’t because I’m not a racist. This is about following the law.

If I rob a bank, even out of necessity, I’m going to jail. Period. We have laws on the books and the Federal Government needs to step up to the plate and do what we PAY them to do, which is PROTECT our country.

Ditto Hack.... Ditto

The far left are simply mindless robots now. Hey, I think there's a blog with that name.

I have no problem with legal immigration. Never have. I also realize we cannot round up all these illegal’s and send them back home. But we cannot make any law that invites more to join in the parade as we did when congress wrote the last immigration reform. Those who are here illegally must do what is necessary to become a citizen.

Lets look at what others do:

If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.

If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.

If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot.

If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed.

If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again.

If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.

If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political prison to rot.

If you cross the United States border illegally you get:

1 - A job
2 - A driver's license
3 - A Social Security card
4 - Welfare
5 - Food stamps
6 - Credit cards
7 - Subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house
8 - Free education
9 - Free health care
10 - A lobbyist in Washington
11 - Billions of dollars in public documents printed in your language
12 - Millions of servicemens and women who are willing to - and do -die for your right to the ways and means of our constitution
13 - And the right to carry the flag of your country - the one you walked out on - while you call America racist and protest that you don't get enough respect.

And they call us bigots? Those who do need a new perspective.
