I borrowed this post from Wake Up America. Kudos for posting it so I could share the news. I encourage anyone reading this to check out the rest of the comments on Wake Up America.
Try walking about without a passport in the middle eastern countries. You might find yourself jailed for life, or even worse, beheaded. What about illegal immigrants are people missing in Arizona's new law? No one wants to deport U.S. citizens, so get a grip. If you can prove you're here legally, then you have no worries. It's no different than passing through the scanner at the airport and being pulled aside to determine you aren't a terrorism threat to the country. It happens to all of us at one time or another. Put on your big girl or boy pants and stop sniveling. The Democrats have whipped this into a fury about freedoms and rights that has nothing to do with citizens.
I'm happy that others are taking a stand and not leaving Arizona out to dry as California has, and I'm sad that Tennessee is not among the states listed in the fight. I propose that we give California back to Mexico. If the state is so opposed to deportation and threatens Arizona with boycotts, that pretty much explains why they drove their own state into Bankruptcy. It's a well-known fact that the majority of farm laborers in that state are in the U.S. illegally and that the legislators there are mostly morons. Yep, born and raised in California, and happy not to be there.
Arizona Does Not Stand Alone On Immigration Law- 17 Other States Join Fight
Posted: 23 May 2010 10:20 AM PDT
Mens News Daily and WND report that 17 other states are joining with Arizona in the battle against illegal immigrations.
Mens News daily:
First, President Barack Obama allowed Calderon to slam American citizens in Arizona over the new immigration enforcement law and then Obama openly agreed with Calderon statements that denigrated patriotic Americans.
Later, when Calderon lectured lawmakers on the floor of the U.S. Senate about Arizona’s immigration policy, the man known as “the Mexican moocher” — because of the billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars he receives yearly – was given a standing ovation by members of the Obama administration and Democrat members of both houses of Congress.
Two Obama cabinet members — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder — stood and enthusiastically applauded Calderon’s arrogant speech. It should be noted that both of these members of the Obama national security team admitted they failed to read a law that they felt qualified to bash repeatedly.
Meanwhile, one of America’s national organizations fighting against illegal immigration announced Friday that 17 additional U.S. states are now filing versions of Arizona’s SB 1070 law which is designed to help local police enforce America’s existing immigration laws.
Sadly, on Friday the Director of Immigration & Customs Enforcement, John Morton, says he will not deport any illegal aliens referred to his office by Arizona police officers or sheriff’s deputies.
Numerous national and local polls indicated that 60-81% of Americans support local police enforcing immigration laws.
“Our national network of activists have been working overtime trying to help the state of Arizona and the brave Arizonans who have passed this bill,” said William Gheen, President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. “Arizona no longer stands alone and we have now documented state lawmakers filing, or announcing they will file, versions of the Arizona bill in seventeen states! We will not stop until all states are protected from invasion as required by the US Constitution.”
The 17 states claiming to be joining Arizona’s fight against criminal aliens – as well as corrupt Mexican politicians or criminals serving in Mexican police or military forces — are as follows:
ARKANSAS, IDAHO, INDIANA, MARYLAND, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEBRASKA, NEVADA, NEW JERSEY, OHIO, OKLAHOMA, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS, UTAH
