Arizona’s New Bill
I wasn’t going to jump into the fray with the illegal immigrant bill in Arizona, but I think I’ve read enough about it at this point that I’ll put an opinion out there. I’m not sure the bill in Arizona is the best way to go about it, but I think the people of Arizona have a right to protect themselves from illegal immigration, since the federal government can’t be bothered. There is a reason why it is called “illegal.” As per usual, the mainstream media isn’t reporting; they’re editorializing and calling it objective reporting. It is quite unfortunate that those in the MSM have become habituated to spreading hate and misinformation instead of thoughtful analysis and objectivity. Here’s a great article, hat tip The American Catholic, that takes a less hysterical look at what is going on in Arizona.
By the way, I don’t know how much traveling you’ve done outside the country, but I’ve done a bit. I’ve been to Mexico, France, England, Scotland, and Italy. At no time was I ever without my passport on my person while in those countries. Why? Because it’s the law in those countries, and they are not shy about enforcing their laws. In Paris, near the Eiffel Tower, wow, those swat-team-looking guys carry some serious armaments, and they don’t seem like they would hesitate to use them. If one of those guys asks for your passport, are you going to tell him no and demand your rights? And please, take a look at this over at Michelle Malkin’s site if you want to see how Mexico treats illegal aliens in their country. I’m not sure why we in the United States are expected to allow anyone who wants to come in to our country to just be able to walk in. No other country allows it. Those who live on our borders should feel safe and secure, and it is not unfair to ask that the federal government stop undermining them in their efforts to achieve that goal.
