A few days ago, at the post office in Williams, Arizona, we ran into a couple from California wearing T-shirts that said “We Are Buy-Cotting Arizona!” I commented on their shirts,and they told me that they made them themselves and were in Arizona on vacation, spending every penny they could to support the state’s tough stand on illegal aliens.
We have talked to a lot of people from California who want the world to know that, no matter what the idiots who get face time in front of TV cameras have to say, most Californians actually support Arizona’s new law, which enforces federal laws on illegals. In fact, according to a recent Los Angeles Times poll, the majority of California residents responding said that they support Arizona’s new law.
But Arizona is not the only place where local and state governments are taking action to halt the illegal invasion of our country. Nationwide, people are fed up with Washington’s inaction, and with seeing their jobs disappear and their taxes go up to support an influx of trespassers that nobody in power seems to have the balls to stop.
Last Monday, the citizens of Freemont, Nebraska voted in a new law that requires anybody who wants to rent a house or apartment in the city to first get a license. Before issuing the license, authorities will run a check to be sure the applicant is in this country legally. The new law also requires businesses to use the federal e-Verify database to ensure job applicants are not illegal aliens. Fremont took this action after it saw its Hispanic population rise from 165 in 1990 to 2,060 last year. Fremont residents say the law is not racist, but rather designed to insure that legal residents get the few jobs that are available locally.
So who will be the first do-gooder to boycott Fremont? Not me! In fact, when we start traveling toward the Midwest in a few weeks, I am going to try very hard to stop in Fremont and at least buy dinner and a tank full of fuel to show my support.
Arizona may be the leader in this fight, but a news report Friday says that at least eighteen other states are watching the issue closely, and lining up to follow suit. Laws modeled after Arizona’s have been introduced in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and South Carolina. Lawmakers in Florida, Idaho, Oklahoma, Nevada, and several other states have suggested similar action for their 2011 legislative sessions.
So, will San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, the “entertainers” in Hollywood, and the rest of the clowns from the land of quakes and flakes who are talking boycott end up boycotting Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and the whole darned country before this is all over? Does anybody really care if they just stay in LaLa Land forever? I don’t.
