Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vowed to sign SB 1070 to bring sweeping change to the illegal immigration crisis in that desert state. At the same time, because the bill proves very effective, illegal aliens and their advocates condemned it with much name calling.
Barack Obama called the Arizona bill "misguided."
Unfortunately, much like his predecessor George W. Bush, Obama, after one year in office, failed to secure the Mexican/US border. Thousands of illegals continue crossing nightly.
Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon said, "It’s a hateful attempt to see whether Russell Pearce or Joe Arpaio can be the toughest person in the world."
"There's going to be political consequences, there will be economical consequences," said Latino activist Carlos. "There will be a lot of consequences on the part of our community."
However, Arizona citizens said they cannot continue living in a lawless state where citizens must fend for their lives every day. Illegal aliens disrupt schools, overwhelm hospitals and spill out of Arizona prisons. Over a week ago, an illegal alien migrant shot Arizona rancher Rob Krentz to death in a brutal execution. In the last few years, Arizona police officers, like Nick Erfle, suffer death at the hands of illegals.
"I've heard your concerns about immigration reform, I understand what the issues are and how important they are to all of us,” said Governor Brewer.
On Thursday, Brewer again called for more troops along the state's border with Mexico.
“The Republican governor ordered a re-allocation of state National Guard and law enforcement resources and called on the federal government to deploy National Guard troops as hundreds of Hispanics protested the bill at the State Capitol complex,” said journalist Jim Cross.
``The responsibility to ensure that we have an orderly, secure border - not just some imaginary line or a rickety fence - belongs to the federal government, and they have failed,'' Brewer said, who asked five times for President Barack Obama to deploy troops.
Arizona with 460,000 illegal immigrants provides the nation's busiest illegal border crossing point. Thousands of illegals cross every night and pickup points provide them with instant transfers around the United States. On average, illegal migrants drop eight pounds of trash and clothing as they exit the desert. Pickup points resemble city landfills loaded with garbage. Additionally, they leave tons of human waste, plastic, backpacks, bottles, cans, food and drugs. They break into Arizona ranchers’ homes and vandalize property.
“This bill was introduced many months ago, any additional delay is unacceptable. Failure to act exposes Arizona law enforcement officers, citizens, and their property to further harm,'' said State Treasurer Dean Martin.
State Senator Russell Pearce said, “Our attorney Chris Kobach made this bill bullet proof. Even Senator John McCain urged Governor Brewer to sign it. We need to bring back the rule of law and respect for the U.S. Constitution in Arizona. This law will do the job.”
Day laborers ``are not criminals,'' said the Rev. Gerald Kicanas, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson. ``These are human beings who want to provide for their families and contribute to our society.''
Unfortunately, day laborers steal jobs from Arizona citizens, while, at the same time, they undercut wages for lawful citizens. Additionally, illegal aliens do not pay taxes as they enjoy payment under the table. Their children overwhelm Arizona schools, and anchor babies by Mexican mothers force U.S. taxpayers to pay K-12 for education, ESL courses, medical care and ‘free’ breakfast and lunch programs. Over 57,000 vehicles suffer theft annually in the Phoenix area—virtually all by illegal aliens.
Finally, the underground economy includes ID theft, ID forgeries, income tax evasion, fraudulent Earned Income Tax Credits applications, drunken driving, no licenses, no insurance and total chaos within police departments in Arizona.
“Pearce’s bill will create sweeping change and restore the rule of law,” said one Arizona citizen. “We’re tired of the lawlessness across our state.”
If any of us, no matter what our race, creed or color might be, refuse to engage our U.S. Congress as we have not for 30 years as to the population/immigration equation—our children will find themselves living in a terribly degraded America where the American Dream will be described by the history books as a ‘fleeting fantasy’ from the era of 1950 to 2010.
