Why Russell Pearce wrote Arizona's common sense illegal immigration law
Not that it will matter to--or be understood by--the closed minded progressives, but Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce (R) clearly spells out in Front Page Magazine exactly why he authored Arizona's SB1070, otherwise known as the law dealing with illegal immigrants.
I saw the enormous fiscal and social costs that illegal immigration was imposing on my state. I saw Americans out of work, hospitals and schools overflowed, and budgets strained. Most disturbingly, I saw my fellow citizens victimized by illegal alien criminals. (snip) When do we stand up for Americans and the rule of law? If not now, when? We are a nation of laws, a Constitutional Republic.
And being a Constitutional Republic the law does not violate the constitutional rights of illegals but rather enhances the rights of legal residents as Pearce carefully explains to those "hysterical critics" who don't take the time to know what it's about. (Yes, Eric Holder, yes Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), yes, Highland Park HS administrators and others, he's talking to you.)
SB1070 simply codifies federal law into state law and removes excuses and concerns about states' inherent authority to enforce these laws and removes all illegal "sanctuary" policies.
Got that--the bill codifies federal law in Arizona!
Now here is what it does not do.
For all those foaming mouths whining that Arizona's law is illegal, Pearce pointedly remarks
What about federal law against illegals? Yes, what about it?
If the measure requires Arizona to "enforce its immigrations laws"so other states will follow then, Pearce believes
While Obama is looking towards San Francisco for guidance, apparently 73% of this country are looking towards Arizona as a model according to a Pew Research poll.
There are, as expected, differences in support for Arizona's law between Democrats and Republicans, young and old. 45% of Democrats agree with the law while 46% don't; however 65% of Democrats agree people should have the proper documents proving legal status; 55% agree the police should be able to hold anyone unable to prove such status.
Republicans and independents have no problem with the law and all its elements.
Is Obama talking to himself?
No Obama isn't talking to himself, he's talking to other closed minded progressives, liberals, lefties, whatever. The other 75% of the nation disagrees with them.
