Liberals vs Common Sense

Posted on May 14, 2010


They have lost their minds. There can be no other answer to this. Look at what is now happening in Arizona and around the country. The biggest joke is that no one who has read the law passed in that State has a clue what it says. Most of the things that are being argued don’t exist in the law. One Congressman has said it is how it could be interpreted. What the hell does that even mean? If you take any law and a crazy mind you could get some off the wall interpretation . But to get this abstract about anything is just bizarre. LA has stopped doing business with Arizona. Now a high school’s girl’s  basketball team from Ill. was told they were not going to playing in Arizona at a invitation only tournament. Because of the Arizona Law.

The students were told the decision was made for their protection. Just incase one or two of them would be subject to some search when they get there. Are you kidding me? Are you really in charge of students? Because if my kids went to that school I’d pull them out for their own safety.

The situation in Arizona is one that needs to be addressed. They are being overrun with illegals. There crime rate is jumping higher and higher because of that. They are having problems paying for services for all the people who live there because of the added burden of those same services being used by people who have no legal basis to even be there. And because they want to protect and provide services to the people legally living there , everyone is turning against them.

How is it possible that honest American citizens have to suffer because nobody will back them on this issue? You have Congress making up what the law says to protect the RIGHTS of people, who are not Americans over the RIGHTS of people who are Americans. Have we all lost our minds?

I have to ask this. If, your state was being overrun by motorcycle gangs? And your citizens were being put in a dangerous situation? Would you fight a law and stop doing business with that State and boycott that State if they passed a law giving the Police some better tools to find and remove those people from there streets. NO YOU WOULD NOT. And I say common sense dictates that nothing is different with what Arizona is doing now.

But then again you also wouldn’t expect elected officials from the United States to put the rights and freedoms of anyone above the rights and freedoms of the American people.

Even if you feel somehow that the policy makes you uncomfortable, the law is the law, and the facts are the facts. This is an experiment that has gone wrong. And the people being most affected by it, the people of Arizona , need your support. Why would any American turn there backs on another American? Why wouldn’t you do a little research and find out what is really going on? These people , the illegals are not being sent to jail or put into internment camps or being asked to repay what they stole. They are being sent home. They way it is being told you’d think it was a case of find an illegal and execute them. Do a little research and find out what is going on on the other side of that border. Find the facts about what has been going on when some of these people cross into the USA. Look at the cost of your tax dollars being spent to not only feed and give medical attention to these people but what it costs to keep them in our school systems. Look at the crime rate associated with these people because they are living here. And then ask yourself if you lived there why no one else in these United States will help you or even take the time to understand what your doing?  The next time some liberal tells you that your wrong about illegals in this country ask them to read this;

And if your really confused by all of this read some of what the law states;

* The new Arizona law mirrors federal law, which already requires aliens (non-citizens) to register and carry their documents with them (8 USC 1304(e) and 8 USC 1306(a)). The new Arizona law simply states that violating federal immigration law is now a state crime as well. Because illegal immigrants are by definition in violation of federal immigration laws, they can now be arrested by local law enforcement in Arizona.

* The law is designed to avoid the legal pitfall of “pre-emption,” which means a state can’t adopt laws that conflict with federal laws. By making what is a federal violation also a state violation, the Arizona law avoids this problem.

* The law only allows police to ask about immigration status in the normal course of “lawful contact” with a person, such as a traffic stop or if they have committed a crime.

* Estimates from the federal government indicate that more than 80 percent of illegal immigrants come from Latin America.12 Thus, there is concern that police may target only Hispanics for enforcement.

* Before asking a person about immigration status, law enforcement officials are required by the law to have “reasonable suspicion” that a person is an illegal immigrant. The concept of “reasonable suspicion” is well established by court rulings. Since Arizona does not issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, having a valid license creates a presumption of legal status. Examples of reasonable suspicion include:

o A driver stopped for a traffic violation has no license, or record of a driver’s license or other form of federal or state identification.

o A police officer observes someone buying fraudulent identity documents or crossing the border illegally.

o A police officer recognizes a gang member back on the street who he knows has been previously deported by the federal government.

* The law specifically states that police, “may not solely consider race, color or national origin” when implementing SB 1070.

* When Arizona’s governor signed the new law, she also issued an executive order requiring the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board to provide local police with additional training on what does and what does not constitute “reasonable suspicion.”13

Even if you are a Liberal, write to Congress and tell them on this issue your going to use your COMMON SENSE. Tell them to back off of this and spend what little time they have left in office to get the job market going.
