Arizona’s Courage In The Face Of Hysterical Balderdash

… illegal aliens turning their state into a war zone. Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, which mirrors federal statutes as to arrest and prosecution of anyone hiring illegal aliens or illegal aliens living within that state.

An intense amount of hysteria and caustic hyperbole attended the new law. None of it holds any water. Illegal immigration advocates called the law akin to Nazi Germany’s war on Jews. The New York Times said, “The statute requires police to stop and question anyone who looks like an illegal immigrant.”

It does nothing of the sort. As with federal statues, a person must break the law in order to be stopped for inspection by police. The same holds true with any citizen of any country. Anyone visiting a foreign country must carry his or her passport and visa identification.


The law only affects those persons residing within Arizona illegally. No one else need be concerned.

Those that favor illegal immigration for their own pockets, created hysteria on multiple levels. The Phoenix Suns basketball team sympathized with illegals by renaming the team jersey “Los Suns”, but you cannot “break” into their games illegally. You must buy a ticket and walk in lawfully. If you do break in illegally, guards will throw you out. Thus, while Suns managers support illegal aliens, they won’t allow such behavior in their own ‘house’.

Phil Jackson of the world champion Los Angeles Lakers said, “I don’t think teams should get involved in the political stuff. If I heard it right, the American people are really for stronger immigration laws.”

Jackson, who normally leans left, said he favors Arizona's new law and he criticized "Los Suns" for meddling in politics where they don't belong.

Outside the hoopla, a harsh reality faces Arizonans daily. They face a war zone unprecedented in modern history. President Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress refuse to secure the border—thus 460,000 illegal aliens reside in Arizona as well as 20 million throughout the USA. Arizona’s border represents a war zone of trash, abandoned vehicles and thousands crossing nightly. They cost U.S. taxpayers $436 billion annually. (Source: with Edwin Rubenstein)

In Arizona, illegal aliens steal 50,000 to 57,000 vehicles in the Phoenix area annually to feed their people and drug smuggling operations. (Source: DMV AZ) According to Chris Kobach of the New York Times, Arizona now boasts the kidnapping capital of the United States. Tens of thousands of illegal alien children birthed in area hospitals—- bankrupt social services, schools and later, prisons. In April, illegal alien drug smugglers executed Arizona Rancher Rob Krentz, but illegals regularly drive drunk as they kill Arizona citizens as well as shoot police officers at traffic stops as one illegal killed Officer Nick Erfle last year in Phoenix.

In Colorado, the Denver Public School system, in sympathy with illegal aliens, dictated that none of its employees could travel to Arizona because of the law. Once again, political balderdash as Denver’s own predicament bubbles to the surface. They suffer a 50 to 67 percent dropout rates in their high schools, which illegal alien children dominate. In Detroit, Michigan, high school dropout rates reached 76 percent according to NBC’s Brian Williams.

Former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan told a round table, “With 460,000 illegal aliens, there are more illegal aliens in Arizona than Americans serving in the United States Army. That’s an invasion.”

Ironically, ABC interviewed an illegal alien mother boasting 10 children born in America as she and her husband packed up their van to move to Colorado. Each of those kids enjoys food stamps, free breakfasts and lunches, free medical care and assisted housing allowances—all on taxpayer dollars. Colorado will become the new state that pays for those 10 kids.

Arizona spoke up for its citizens and the rule of law, but more so, as a last ditch effort to restore the rule of law and fiscal balance for its own citizens.

The question remains: when will the U.S. Congress and President Obama honor their oaths of office by enforcing federal immigration laws already on the books?
