Arizona Immigration Law: Well-Intentioned, But Meaningless

Very well written, I wanted to share with all here at LL and my subscribers, thanks!

Oh the hypocrisy.

Ever since Arizona passed its controversial law allowing police to check a suspect’s immigration status, the federal government had been intimating that it would file suit to stop the measure.

Which it finally did. (Although, in a moment of utter embarrassment, Attorney General Eric Holder testified of his intention to file suit despite his admission that he’d never read the ten-page Arizona law.)

And the results of the lawsuit? Wholly predictable.

The Right is furious, the Left satiated, and, as always, common sense people are still out in the cold.

The fact is, the Arizona law, signed by a Republican Governor and a red-meat issue to the GOP base, is 100 percent meaningless. Beyond providing fiery agenda-driven rhetoric - for both sides - it’s just the latest fu

  • "There is no national ID card, and probably about six people nationwide even know where their Social Security card is, so, for the most part, that leaves the driver%u2019s license."

    I beg to differ! In SC 10/10 "Legal" Americans know their SS# & gaurd it with their lives... Not to mention, 95% of us keep a check on our Credit ratings...

    Need I say more?
    Gett-it, Got-it, GOOD!

  • Interesting article.

    But none the less. If Arizona wouldn't have done what it did, the lack of National attention would have continued in the manner it has for more than 30 years.

    Now, we as a Nation are faced with dealing with the facts. Fuck the Republicans. Fuck the Democrats. We as a Nation, need to do what needs to be done.

    And that is to SECURE OUR BORDERS.

    After border state Governor's are satisfied with their own state's safety and sovereignty, then and only then will " More..

  • Illegals are able to vote? How the fuck does that work? I could have sworn in the US you loose your right to vote if your a criminal let alone if your there illegaly.

    This article is just more hysteria with few facts.

    • Yes, they are (just like countless people who have been dead for years). And the only way that a U.S. Citizen is disenfranchised is if they are convicted of a fraud related to elections/votes.

      The author of this article has obviously done his research and his facts are sound, perhaps you should do your research before commenting on something you obviously know little about.

      Good post, it's too bad that so many people have allowed themselves to fall prey to the political parties that preten More..

    • SO the issue would be Vote fraud as opposed to illegal imigration. For which you have provided no facts.

      He has done his research but has put a lot of his own opinion-

      Most generous nation on earth - according to whom?
      Identity as the most welcoming nation on earth- ??? Really???
      Security before reform.
      No Amnesty.
      Education for illegals to the tune of Billions - where are the facts?
      Democrats putting politics ahead of national security - what like the Republicans.

      Pure Hysteria. S More..

  • Build the wall and post robot controlled Gauss midi-guns every 1/4 mile.
    Set the guns to fire on anything that moves, on the south side of the fence.
    A few Invader's will get splattered, but they'll eventually figure it out.
    Unlike Liberal's.
