  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    aes asks what Janet Napolitano and Barack Obama did to bring about the deplorable situation in Arizona. The short answer is that they expanded INA 287(g) authority to allow bigoted local officials to "enforce" the federal immigration laws beyond any reasonable limits. Then, Napolitano tried to take away the punchbowl of prejudice from officials such as Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and others. Arizona has now responded by providing them with its own punchbowl. Once the genie of hatred is outside of the bottle, it is not so easy to put it back in.

    It baffles me that many people who claim to be concerned about the protection of the United States find it out of harmony and seem to run inconsistent with the general pattern of the Arizona Immigration Law. What's strange about asking someone to provide evidence he/she is in the country legally? I am sure those who are in conflict with the law are those that are importing illegal immigrants into the country...probably for the advancement of their selfish interest. And it's strange how someone stands tall in declaring people that have no respect for properly constituted immigration rules "Innocent." As far as I know, a leader is not a terror to those that follow the rules, which means laws are not a a terror to those with a healthy respect for properly constituted rules. If you think that the law will lead to racial profiling, then I think there is a "race" known to be "lawless." If the Arizona law could conveniently affect a specific race, then I think instead of accusing the law, one has to advice that race to get out of that shell and begin to run in harmony with the properly constituted rules. It's absolutely stupid that people that have broken the law could stand tall and ask for right to stay! It's just like someone breaking into your home and demanding for the right to remain there brashly simply because he thinks you have more than enough to support him...how stupid!!
