Arizona steps up to do the Federal Government's Job

Updated April 29, 2010

All of the consternation arising from the recently passed Arizona immigration law would be completely unnecessary if the Federal government were doing it's job. It is the job of the fed to protect the border and to keep illegal aliens from crossing our borders.

By President Obama's own admission, over 500,000 illegals sneak into Arizona each year alone. 500,000 people that are draining the taxpayers of Arizona who pay the cost of the uninvited intruders. Rather than taking strong steps to protect the border and cut off the flow of illegal aliens, all we here from the Fed is that we should set up an amnesty program (but we don't hear how much that will cost the taxpayers).

The governor of Arizona as well as Senator McCain have requested the 3,000 troops be deployed along the border. So far, the Obama regime has been silent.

Isn't it high time that the politicians quit pandering to the illegals and do what they took an oath to do?

The pandering by the polpigs goes beyond amnesty and failing to protect the border. These pompous, self righteous gas bags have the audacity to condemn the requirement that Arizona police check the immigration status of suspects. We hear about the plight of some poor family that goes out for ice cream, are stopped and don't have their papers. This is pure garbage.

The federal government already requires all foreign nationals legally in this country to have their documentation,, (via or green card), with them at all times. Arizona is not adding a burden to these folks.

Rather than posing for the camera and trying to buy hispanic votes, the Obama regime and Congress must get serious and do the job they swore they would do - protect our borders and stop the flow of illegal aliens. Then and only then can we have a constructive debate on immigration reform.

Update 4/29/10
Perhaps it wil help those who are not in Arizona to understand what the residents have been dealing with and face each and every day while the rest of live in relative safety.

Regarding the position of the fed, this from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano:

Now I ask you to set aside the political rhetoric and garage babbling from progressives and mainstream media, put yourself into the place of the citizens of Arizona and answer this one question: "what would you do?".
