This week Obama and his Justice Department declared war on the people of Arizona by filing a lawsuit in federal court for the unpardonable sin of upholding law-and-order, practicing self-defense, and seeking relief from the crushing burden of supporting over 460,000 illegal aliens.
Arizona, the biggest gateway into the U.S. for illegal immigration, faces bankruptcy from the increased health care, education, and welfare costs. Moreover, their citizens face terrorism and murder by illegal aliens. Every past action and inaction undertaken by the federal government contradicts each other and their arguments in this lawsuit. What they are saying in the suit is that Arizona is depriving them of their do-nothing policy. In other words, Feds have the right to do nothing or to do anything, as they please; they are unbound by law.
Before reading the bill, Barack Obama slammed the Arizona law as abusive and divisive, when the federal government’s arrogant lack of enforcement of immigration law is abusive, divisive, and illegal. Obama and Holder find it incredulous that American taxpayers, who pay an enormous toll in treasure and suffering from the illegal immigration problem, would be less than understanding of the federal government’s incessant refusal to enforce immigration laws and seal the border. Over 60 percent of Americans favor the Arizona law while Liberal Progressives dismiss them as being racists.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement, "Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility," His department added that Arizona’s state law hampered the authority of the Obama administration to enforce national immigration policy and usurps federal authority to protect U.S. borders and American citizens. Furthermore, “The nation’s immigration laws reflect a careful and considered balance of national law enforcement, foreign relations, and humanitarian interests.”
If these statements don’t smoke the Polygraph, they certainly peg the laugh meter. The lawsuit says that comprehensive federal laws already on the books cover illegal immigration — If this is true, why do we need new comprehensive immigration reform?
The Mexican government welcomed the move, saying the Arizona law “affects the civil and human rights of thousands of Mexicans.” This comes for a country with some of the most restrictive immigration policies in the world. Incredibly, Obama is giving Mexico a seat at the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive table in the enactment, adjudication, and enforcement of American immigration law.
Sanctuary cities and states have violated federal immigration laws for years but ignored because it meshes with Liberal-Progressive doctrine. Conversely, the Arizona law does nothing to violate federal law; rather, it nearly duplicates the statute and simply requires police to protect American citizens because immigration authorities refuse to...
