Yesterday, people from all over the country responded to the Supreme Court ruling on the Arizona immigration law.
Do you know how the Obama Administration responded? They made it difficult, maybe impossible, for Arizona to perform the one duty the Supreme Court said they could and should perform!
The Supreme Court ruled that Arizona law enforcement officers are authorized to check the immigration status of anyone who is reasonably suspected of being in the country illegally.
- After the ruling, Arizona was denied access to the federal database they need to determine the status of people who are being questioned. As a result, AZ law enforcement can't perform their legal responsibility. And Arizona is the only state that was denied access!
- To add insult to injury, yesterday Eric Holder's Justice Department set up a telephone and email "hotline" to invite the public to report any possible civil rights violations or concerns. Arizona is perfectly able to enforce the law in a professional way without DOJ interference.
The Administration's actions don't just affect Arizona. When the Obama administration makes it impossible to stop the constant flow of illegal immigrants into the country, it is a serious national security and economic issue that affects people in every state of the union.
“Arizona bears the brunt of the country’s illegal immigration problem . Its citizens feel themselves under siege by large numbers of illegal immigrants who invade their property, strain their social services and even place their lives in jeopardy.” ~Justice Antonin Scalia
"Aliens are reported to be responsible for a disproportionate share of serious crime....
"Phoenix is a major city of the United States, yet signs along an interstate highway 30 miles to the south warn the public to stay away. One sign proclaims:
‘DANGER — PUBLIC WARNING — TRAVEL NOT RECOMMENDED
Active Drug and Human Smuggling Areas
Visitors May Encounter Armed Criminals and
Smuggling Vehicles Traveling at High Rates of Speed.’ ”
~Justice Anthony Kennedy
