I am sick and tired of pinheads in the media and liberal democrat politicians telling the whole country that the state of Arizona’s law “outlawing illegal aliens” is a bad law. I’m serious, some talking head actually made that statement. I’m proud that my newspaper’s national association was in Tucson during the signing of the law by the Arizona governor.

The “lamestream media” have produced 12 negative stories about the new law for every one positive-leaning story and in spite of the top three networks best efforts the American public reject their push to make them dislike the new law.

Within days of signing the law, the United States attorney general stated he would have the justice department “investigate” the constitutionality of the law. Really? Less than a week ago he was asked point blank during a congressional committee hearing if he had read the 15-page Arizona law. He said he had not read it. Then, former Arizona governor and Homeland Security Secretary Janet “Incompetano” Napolitano said she had not read the bill either. She has made numerous comments about the bill being a “racial profiling bill.”

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear. The state law basically reiterates federal law and does not require anything of immigrants that the federal law does not require of them. Around 70% of Arizona citizens are in favor of the law. It is estimated that their state spends over $2 billion a year or services for illegal residents of Arizona so I think San Francisco’s boycott of the state will not hurt them financially.

You cannot walk into an ice cream shop with your children and be asked by a police officer for your proof of citizenship. This is exactly what the president said could happen during some speech. Is he a liar, is he stupid or has he just not read the bill?

The bottom line: democrats want to keep illegals around for voter fraud and big business wants them around to keep labor cheap. The problem is big business includes both democrats and republicans.

We don’t need comprehensive immigration reform. We need to seal the border. If a half-million illegals weren’t pouring across our border per year, then and only then we could implement some guest-worker programs etc.
