. . . . . We can’t start singling out people because of who they look like, or how they talk, or how they dress. We can’t turn law-abiding American citizens and law-abiding immigrants into subjects of suspicion and abuse. We can’t divide the American people that way. That’s not the answer. That’s not who we are as the United States of America.
. . . . . And that’s why I’ve instructed my administration to closely monitor the new law in Arizona, to examine the civil rights and other implications that it may have. That’s why we have to close the door on this kind of misconceived action by meeting our obligations here in Washington.
. . . . . So I want to say it again, just in case anybody is confused. The way to fix our broken immigration system is through common-sense, comprehensive immigration reform. Barack Obama: President of the U.S. May 5, 2010
. . . . . Obama’s tactical solution to Arizona’s immigration enforcement law is captured nicely in his enlarging the problem to include comprehensive immigration reform. This is code for the same power grab as occurred with healthcare. While he is going for Latina votes, his foot dragging is classic refusal to take appropriate executive action by assisting Arizona with a real problem. Instead he does what he knows best: Organize division, delay action, paper over his real intentions with grandiosity, threaten a lawsuit against Arizona, and encourage his bureaucracy to boycott a state of the Union.
. . . . . Hello!! Is this what presidents do??? Is there some part of illegal that he does not understand? The Arizona law focuses upon illegal immigrants, much as the federal law focuses upon illegal immigrants. Our president is fiddling for power (comprehensive reform) while the country has been and is being invaded.
. . . . . While scholars debate the constitutionality of the Arizona law, our Executive Branch fails to enforce anything.
. . . . . Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution states: The Unites States shall guarantee to every State of the Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion, and on application of the legislature, or the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
. . . . . Faced with an invasion and federal inaction or obstruction on the border, Arizona must have a residual right to protect itself. Such self-protection is not explicitly forbidden if the Federal Government fails to take appropriate action. It is imminently clear that all the fifty states are suffering from an invasion and domestic violence. Arizona is the flashpoint for this invasion. Arguments based upon human rights are specious in an invasion.
. . . . . There is some part of illegal that liberals don’t understand!!! Current estimates include over ten-million illegal residents in the United States.
. . . . . The Arizona law is virtually a clone of the Federal law, so who is going to enforce it? Certainly not our current president with all his executive power, unless he can convert all the illegal immigrants into voters.
. . . . . Hello!!! Is this not an invasion?
