As I have said before, I live here in AZ. I love it here. I work in a job that makes a modest income and allows me my true passion. To interact with people from all walks of life. I take the time to see the world through their eyes, through their perspectives. Everyone I come in contact with, from radio and TV personalities to delivery drivers, Hispanic or black or white, Democrat or Republican, Everyone here that I have talked to can agree on three things.
The first is that Illegal Immigration into Arizona is getting out of control. People outside of the "border states" don't understand this. "Non-Border state" people envision the movie Born in East L.A. with Cheech Marin running and hiding, trying to get people across the border, and having an "aw shucks" attitude when the mean old border patrol agents catch him. These Illegal Invaders are now carrying assault rifles and they are using them. (Another Law Enforcement Officer was shot down yesterday, by "suspected Illegal Immigrants".
The second thing that I've learned is that the supposed "Sanctions and Boycotts" that have been already placed or are going to be placed are ridiculously hilarious (or at least they would be if they weren't so insulting). In fact, I don't recall such disdain and disregard from state to state since....Well, that would have to be the Civil War. Now I know what you're thinking. You're (outsiders) thinking "exactly right!" That we are not unlike the slave traders of the South, holding our thumb down on someone with darker skin than our own. The one problem with that, is that we are not trying to hold on to illegal immigrants, we are trying the expel and repel them. We want them out of our country. THE ONE'S THAT ARE HERE ILLEGALLY!!! This country was founded by immigrants, and without Lawful immigration I know that I for one wouldn't be here. These People coming across the border illegally, most of them are coming across for legitimate and honorable reasons. Either they are trying to make money to send back to their families still in Mexico, or they are trying to make a new life for themselves. The problem is, these people they are not paying into the system which they want to be apart of and they are taking all of the freedoms and privileges as if they were (such as health care, social security, education and welfare). Then there is the other people coming in, the criminals. Over 17% of all illegal immigrants caught, were previously convicted of a crime here in the U.S. and were shipped back to Mexico, only to come on back and do it again!!! OVER 17%.
The final thing that everyone here is saying, is that our government (past and present) has done nothing to help us. Even Our own Janet Nepoli-skankfest, spits in our face. She even had the stones to say a few days ago that "Our Borders are more secure now than they have ever been". She was our Governor last year!!! President Obama does nothing but spur on the lies and rhetoric that the left media repeats like the "good parrot on his shoulder" that they are, begging for a cracker. Has no one read the law? Has Obama read it? Given the way he has responded to it, there is a good chance he hasn't. Does anyone care?
The one good thing that I have heard out of all of this is that a few other states have read the law. Texas has already started planning a bill to mirror our law, and I just heard yesterday that in colorado 66% of people were in favor of doing the same. If the government isn't going to help us until November (you know what happens in November), then we have to attack this thing state to state. "No ten point plan". How about a 2-point plan. 1. Close the Border 2. Enforce the law. That's it.
