immigration law, the resulting attack from all sides has been nothing less than intense and nothing short of idiotic. Forget that 70% of the residents approve of this effort. A small percentage of pinheads from around the country, although removed from having to deal directly with the consequences of illegal immigration, have wrongly condemned this bill.
Not directly exposed does not mean not directly effected. While not in immediate danger of being kidnapped or murdered, we all share the cost of providing benefits for those who ignore our border laws.
Look at the state of California, a shining example of liberal douche-baggery, with its cities bankrupt, overrun with illegal immigrants, yet they comically denounce Arizona for attempting to avoid California's death spiral.
Of course you would expect Hispanic groups advocating amnesty to oppose this bill. Their goal is to throw all borders wide open, with some more idiotic than others who believe California and the southern US rightfully belongs to Mexico. What a bunch of morons. As far as I'm concerned, they can have southern California, at least north to the shit-hole known as Los Angeles. I've been there only once, and will never set foot there again.
These crazy open-border activists present ludicrous interpretations of the new Arizona law. Some see it as an open invitation for racial profiling, others as a Nazi-like effort to round up immigrants and send them off to some Mexican death camp.
And you always expect the idiots of Hollywood to offer their support or opposition to the social "cause-du-jour". What pisses me off most are these filthy-rich actors and Hollywood twits, always claiming some connection with the poor, the hungry, the oppressed. They put together one lame benefit after another in order to donate someone else's money to "their cause". After which, the return to their plush, million-dollar estates, surrounded by a luxury of wealth made possible by the very system they decry.
Nobody, except perhaps an illegal, could possibly deny that the US has a severe problem with the security of our southern border. The fact that the federal government has ignored this problem for thirty years has not made it any easier to solve. Many who have been here illegally for so long now have families, children who are US citizens, and this makes the problem exponentially more difficult.
Even though the subject touches people deeply, it is amazing to me is how many get caught up in the hysteria caused by the misinformation and ignorance of the Amnesty/Open Border/Reconquista idiots. The most vocal, of course, are the ones with the most to gain.
The solution is simple - secure the border by whatever means necessary. Show these people that our border is to be respected. The damned federal government isn't doing its job. Arizona is trying to stop the flood, and I salute Governor Brewer for taking a stand.
