Why are people so pissed off about the state of Arizona taking a hard stance in enhancing and enforcing an existing federal law? Before all of you democrats start calling me a republican, please refer to my article about Religion.
This is a step in the right direction, not in the sense that the bill is bringing something new to the table, but that the bill is just reminding us to “do what we say and say what we do”.
Basically, the axe I am grinding is, what is the big deal and why are we wasting everyone’s time on this? I personally do not care whether or not we allow people to enter the country freely as long as they are here to work and not harm anyone. What I am upset over is the amount of opposition towards a law that basically replaces a “can” provision in the Federal regulation into a “must” provision for the new Arizona immigration law. Specifically, law enforcement agencies are required to check every arrested individuals for their legal status instead of just having the unexercised authority.
In last week’s The Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/28/AR2010072801794.html, Democratic appointee, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton said “Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked,”
- Let me think. Would I rather “burden” (A) a person who has been arrested for an alleged incident that more than likely occurred or “burden” (B) the gainfully employed who has to spend hours on the freeways congested with uninsured illegal immigrants and pay taxes to support any type of social welfare incurred by said illegal immigrants? Boy, this is a hard one.
- Wait just a second. Did she just say “arrested” and “lawfully present” in the same sentence? Good try with making it sound like we are completely wronging and “burdening” innocent bystanders. How many times have you been arrested that an additional verification of your legal status would “burden” your time? Here’s an idea for not being “burdened” with having you liberty restricted (A) stop doing shit that would get you arrested, (B) stop doing shit that would get you arrested, and my favorite (C) stop doing shit that would get you arrested
- Let me get this straight. We can arrest a person, effectively “restrict his or her liberty” while enforcing a law like theft or fraud, but we cannot “restrict his or her liberty” while enforcing a law when it comes to immigration? Does this make any sense to anyone?
Here’s an example of how things would go down if I were ever pulled over and the cop wants to “check immigration status”
Cop: Excuse me sir, I am now required to check your immigration status.
UncensoredInsight: okay (takes registration paper out of wallet and hands it over)
Cop: Thanks now let me carry on with my business of writing you a ticket or giving you a verbal warning
Why is it so hard to carry your registration papers in your wallet as you would with your state ID or driver’s license or do you have a problem with carrying those documents as well? I have concluded that you are one of these people if you are opposing Arizona’s immigration law:
- An illegal immigrant
- A friend/relative of an illegal immigrant
- An legal immigrant who used to be an illegal immigrant
- A legal immigrant or a person who was born here lacking any real problems in your life that you need to take on problems of a group of people whose presence on American soil is by definition a violation of federal law.
- A stupid retard
And if you are any one of the above five groups, then I don’t really care about what you think because you are a hypocrite for accepting one thing that is without a doubt unlawful (illegal immigration) while attacking another thing on the basis that you believe it is unlawful (alleging that Arizone’s new immigration law violates Civil Rights).
The bottom line is, leave Arizona if you are an illegal immigrant. In fact, leave the country while you are at it and stay out until our laws are changed by your brethrens already living here. And I’m sure you wouldn’t have to wait long because with Antonio VillRETARDO, President Obama, and any other politician who wants non-white vote in charge, it is just a matter of time. If the law was truly unconstitutional and violates Civil Rights then let the supreme court do its job and decide that instead of you wasting your time to protest, rally, and, in the case of VillaRETARDO, boycott all Arizona business contract at the risk of costing the city millions for your own political motives.
