In a lawsuit filed this week, the Justice Department challenges Arizona’s new immigration law, claiming the law, which only seeks to enforce existing federal law, is too broad. The government says Arizona is unrealistic in wanting every illegal immigrant caught and deported. The government says that’s just too big a job, and that dealing with the estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the United States would overwhelm the system.
Instead, the Justice Department wants to continue with its policy of focusing on “dangerous” immigrants like drug runners, gang members, and threats to our national security, while leaving “law abiding” illegal immigrants alone.
Huh? How can you be both “law abiding” and “illegal?” Isn’t that kind of like being a “little bit” pregnant? Either you are, or you aren’t!
So how’s it going, dealing with those drug runners and gang bangers? According to every news report I read out of Arizona, not too well so far.
Each and every illegal alien in this country is a threat to our national security. They are undermining our economy and draining our resources. The monies that are spent having them here could be used to improve our national security and to improve life for our legitimate citizens. If we spent every dollar on putting soldiers on our border, and in hiring police officers, maybe we could do something about those drug runners and gang members the feds say they are so worried about.
The government worries that other states will follow Arizona’s lead, and that if they do, it would overwhelm federal agencies with illegal immigrants, costing the government millions of dollars to deport them.
Do you give a damn how much it takes to rid our country of these illegal invaders? We have a lot of pedophiles in our society too. Should we just ignore them, because it would cost less than to arrest and punish them? How about bank robbers? We could save a fortune if we just ignored them, right?
Americans are fed up with the federal government’s lack of response to this problem. One poll says that 70% of Americans nationwide support Arizona’s new law. An Associated Press news story released this week said that citizens from across the country have donated $500,000 to help the state of Arizona answer the government’s challenge to its law. Most of that was in donations amounting to less than $100. That’s a lot of people who are making it very plain that they are willing to put their money where their mouth is, even if Washington will not.
Doesn’t that tell the idiots running the government something? What ever happened to majority rule in this country? I hope people remember this, come election time, and that they clean house from the top all the way down. Yeah, it’s time for change all right!
