The worthless Congress is the problem and not the solution to this mess. Foreign aid has to stop, as the worthless Congress, is giving away billions to these dollar store governments around the world, and these nickel/dime dictators are just pocketing American taxpayer money. The worthless Congress is trying to kissy-kissy up with these tyrants around the world and make friends the United States does't need.
Not only does the door to illegal aliens have to close, but the door to legal immigration has to close. The time has come, that the United States, cannot babysit with the world. There are not enough jobs here in the United States to go around, because the worthless Congress is allowing the jobs to go out of the country. The American people are getting it up the ass TWICE!
Everyone will have to wait until June, 2012, to see what the worthless Supreme Court will rule, but until that time, the various states, will have to come up with legislation of their own. I live in the border state of New Mexico, and I'm right in the front lines of all this controversy. I agree with Arizon's law, and I hope New Mexico enacts a law that is similar.
The following newspaper article, was written by David Crary of the Associated Press, and the piece was published in the Albuquerque Journal on Sunday April, 29, 2012. The headline of the piece reads;
"States Look to Imitate Arizona"
The sub-headline reads;
"Many States Plan Tough Laws"
"Emboldened by signals that the U.S. Supreme Court may uphold parts of Arizona's immigration law, legislators and activists across the country say they are gearing up to push similar get-tough measures in their states.
"We're getting our national network ready to run with the ball, and saturate state lagislatures with versions of the law," said Wiliam Gheen, president of American for Legal Immigration. "We believe we can pass it in most states."
That goal may be a stretch, but lawmakers in about a dozen states told the Associated Press they were interested in proposing Arizona-style laws if its key components are upheld by the Supreme Court. A ruling is expected in June, 2012 on the Department of Justice's appeal that the law conflicts with federal immigration policy.
Stands on the issue don't always follow predictable party lines. Republican Govs, Susana Martinez of New Mexico and Brian Sandoval of Nevada...both Hispanics...say Arizona-style laws aren't needed in their states. Hispanics account for 46 percent of the population in New Mexico, the highest proportion of any state. "Governor Martinez fully believes that any policies addressing illegal immigration have to begin at the federal level," said her spokesman Greg Blair.
Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, said he was encouraged that several justices suggested during Webnesday's oral arguments that they are ready to let Arizona enforce the most controversial part of the law...a requirement that police officers check the immigration status of people they suspect are in the country illegally. Another provision allows suspected illegal immigrants to be arrested without warrants. A ruling in favor of Arizon's Senate Bill 1070, would encourage the states of Georgia; Indiana, South Carolina and Utah to move forward with comparable measures that were enacted but have been on hold pending the high court's decision.
"If Arizona does very well, he'll do very well," said Alabama Senator Scott Beason, sponsor of the law that in some respects is tougher than Arizona's. In addition to requiring police to determine citizenship status during traffic stops, it directs government offices to verify legal residency for transactions like obtaining a car license, enrolling a child in school and gitting a job. Lawmakers in such diverse states as Mississippi and Pennsylvania said they would be eager to follow the Arizona/Alabama model if the Supreme Court gives a green light.
"You look at poll after poll after poll, whether they're a business owner or employee or small business owner or executive, the majority of Americans support bills like 1070," said Pennsylvania Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, a Republican who chair the House State Government Committee. Metcalfe has already introduced a bill that incorporates Arizona's law and is waiting for a favorable Supreme Court ruling to bring it up in his committee.
In Mississippi, a get-tough immigration bill passed the House earlier this year, but died in a Senate committee. Its backers plan to try again next year, and hope for a Supreme Court ruling that gives them guidance. "This just ensures to the taxpayers of Mississippi that when we pass the law, we won't end up in a long court battle," said Repulican Rep. Becky Currie.
As in Mississippi, South Dakota lawmakers also have refected a measure based on the Arizona law, but its sponsor, Republican Rep. Manny Steele of Sioux Falls, says he's ready to try again. "I would be excited to get another bill going back in there, according to what the Supreme Court decision is," Steele said
In Rhode Island, Rep. Peter Palumbo said he was pleased byk the Supreme Court's appearant support for allowing states to enforce immigration law. "It's tremendous," said Palumbo, a Democrat who would like to empower the state police to help federal authorities with immigration enforcement."
END OF ARTICLE;
As I said earlier, the American people are tired of babysitting with the world. If people around the world want freedom and a better life, they're going to have to fight for it, just like the Americans did in their Revolutionary War. The laziest people in the world, are in the Middle East, where they won't even fight for their own freedon...they want the American's to do it for them. I say there is a line in the sand for everything...and enough is enough!
