Immediately after Governor Jan Brewer upheld her obligation to the citizens of Arizona by signing SB 1070, President Obama, whose blatant refusal to secure U.S. borders contributed heavily to the passage of this bill, polluted the air waves with an angry outburst not dissimilar from an eruption of an Iceland volcano.
In typical Obama-speak, the president was divisive, inflammatory and darn right goofy.
As reported, in part, at Bloomberg, Obama said:
“The actions by the Arizona legislature threaten “to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans,” Obama said. It also may hamper trust between residents and law enforcement authorities, he said.
“He said he has instructed U.S. authorities to monitor the state’s actions and to “examine the civil rights and other implications” of the legislation.”
Sorry, Mr. President, but the American people are fed up with your “notion of fairness” when it comes to most issues of the day, including the issue of illegal aliens.
Perhaps it escaped your notice, Mr. President, but two weeks ago an American citizen, Rob Krentz, was slaughtered on his own property in Arizona by a suspected illegal alien.
He was murdered as pay back because his brother had the audacity to report illegal aliens on the family property.
Does that meet your definition of fairness sir?
Many illegal aliens are also guilty of violating the borders and immigration laws of our sovereign nation, tax evasion, identity theft, voter fraud, stealing hundreds of billions of dollars each year in public services to which they are not entitled, not paying for medical services which forces hospitals and medical facilities into bankruptcy thereby denying American citizens the use of such facilities, taking millions of jobs that should be filled by Americans, contributing to the over crowding of public schools, reintroducing diseases long eradicated back into America, and degradation of American language and culture with third-world language and ways.
Is this more fairness from south of the border, President Obama?
Arizona is on U.S. soil and should be defended by the government, a responsibility that you have refused to accept since your morning of glory on January 20, 2009.
When American citizens are murdered on U.S. soil for defending their own property, the time has come for decisive and firm action, Mr. President.
Governor Brewer knew full well that you could not be counted on to defend citizens against illegal aliens. Her decision to sign SB 1070 was a wise and prudent choice, the likes of which are no longer obvious in your version of Washington, D.C.
By the way, given your concern about civil rights, how about some gentle, or not so gentle, prodding of Attorney General Erick Holder with regard to the case involving voter intimidation by members of the New Black Panther party on November 4, 2008?
That matter has genuine civil rights implications, Mr. President, because the alleged intimidations were committed against American citizens.
White citizens, but citizens all the same!
Finally, Obama’s commitment to expedite immigration reform because of the new law in Arizona is a dangerous sign that this president may be in the process of losing his grip and much more!
We have upwards of 20 million invading criminals in America, people who have no business being here. And our president wants to “solve” the problem by making illegal aliens legal?
That would be another example of “fairness” from a progressive mindset, right Mr. President?
Thanks, but no thanks. Do your job and enforce our borders and existing laws on the books, Mr. President.
That is both fair and constitutional, sir!
