A Simple Question Or Two.

Category: illegal alien,politics,racismamuzikman @ 8:55 am

Clearly there are those who take great exception to the recently passed immigration law in Arizona. The cries of outrage and the accusations of racism seem to be coming from everywhere.  In fact there is a clear attempt to couch this entire subject under the banner of race and racism, which should come as no surprise since that particular accusation has become quite a useful tool, both to squelch disagreement and dissent as well as to promote particular political agendas.

So, for those who feel as though our laws on immigration should not be enforced.  For those who feel that illegal immigrants should be granted a path to citizenship without obeying the existing laws.  For those who feel as though there is a compelling reason to ignore the laws of the land with respect to immigration I have a couple of simple questions:

#1: Which laws shall we enforce and which ones shall we ignore?

#2: Who gets to decide the answer to question #1?

    It’s not a matter of whether or not to enforce some laws. It is a matter of whether or not enforcement of some laws are feasible. Has anyone noticed? We have a perfect storm of three interconnected, completely unenforceable laws.

    1. Labor laws. What’s the difference if Dole uses cheap labor at their plants in Texas or Guatemala? None. And there’s nothing anybody can do about it. That’s what you get with globalism.
    2. Immigration laws. How can an employer or a cop possibly check immigration status when no one is allowed to?! Then the cop is supposed to arrest the employer for — what?
    3. War on Drugs. Since our labor and immigration laws are such a joke, your common illegal Mexican slave can’t afford to eat on the pittance he’s getting. Why do you think they join the Cartels? Illicit drug laws have accomplished nothing except to create a lucrative, violent black market that has more resources than the FBI, is seriously competing with the legitimate economies of CA and HI, and is one of the main reasons such a harsh immigration law was passed in Arizona last week.

    We have spent qua-jillions of dollars, trying every conceivable political, psychological, military, liberal, conservative approach over the last 30 years, futilely trying to enforce these laws. I have not seen the slightest improvement.

    Yes, laws should be enforced. As late as 1985 the city I worked for enforced federal immigration law to wit: Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, Violation of Immigration.

    In 1985 our own mayor (a former “Brown Beret” member) brought suit against our police department in federal court and we were forbidden by the court to enforce the law. We arrested about 150 or so violators a week prior to the court’s intervention. After this happened several other cities in L.A. County ceased enforcement due to the Federal Court’s decision. Imigration violation in the past was a Felony, now it is a mere Misdimeanor.

    The activist courts are the problem. There are sufficiant laws to take care of the problem. The courts have, and continue to, tie the hands of those attempting to do the will of the people. Lastest stats this morning 60% of people are for the new Arizona Law and 30% are against, I guess the other 10% are “undecided”.

    Back in the early 80’s I worked for Volt Temporary Services agency. We were not allowed to ask for proof of legal status then.

    If you have red hear and freckles loosely matching the description of a robbery suspect, you can and should expect to be stopped and thoroughly searched because your coloring fits the profile of the robber. The fact that you are not the robber will not bother a liberal in the slightest.
