The Pigs Of Arizona

Read this article, it is telling on how the media has equated immigration laws to racism. Do note though that it is from the AP. Here are just a few snippets. With emphasis and comments from me.

Immigration Advocates Vow to Fight Arizona Law

The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund said it plans a legal challenge to the law, which it said "launches Arizona into a spiral of pervasive fear, community distrust, increased crime and costly litigation, with nationwide repercussions."

Pervasive fear? Increased crime? From this bill? WTF are they smoking? Maybe they should talk to the family of Robert Krentz.

William Sanchez, president of the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders Legal Defense Fund, said his group is preparing a federal lawsuit against Arizona to stop the law from being applied. The group represents 30,000 Evangelical churches nationwide, including 300 Latino pastors in Arizona.

Let's invoke religion to make the case credible. The left loves doing this, when it's convenient for them. Realize a lot of these churches hide illegals from the authorities.

"It's going to change our lives," said Emilio Almodovar, a 13-year-old American citizen from Phoenix. "We can't walk to school any more. We can't be in the streets anymore without the pigs thinking we're illegal immigrants."

The pigs? First, what is this 1968? Second, raising your children like this doesn't do much for the credibility of the immigrant community in Arizona.

Mexico warned the proposal could affect cross-border relations, with Foreign Secretary Patricia Espinosa saying her country would have to "consider whether the cooperation agreements that have been developed with Arizona are viable and useful."

Francisco Loureiro, a pro-migrant activist who runs a migrant shelter in Nogales, Mexico, called the new law "racist" and said it would lead to more police abuse of migrants.

"Police in Arizona already treat migrants worse than animals," he said. "There is already a hunt for migrants and now it will be open season under the cover of a law."

Loureiro said about 250 deported migrants have been arriving at his shelter every night and that most tell him they were detained by police.

Sorry, this is just too ridiculous to respond to. Border relations? With Mexico? Arresting and jailing illegals is racist? Hunting them down in the open desert instead of just letting them slip through is racist? These people are smoking the same shit as MALDEF.

Finally, we have this.

Earlier Friday, President Barack Obama called the Arizona bill "misguided" and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal. He also said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level -- or leave the door open to "irresponsibility by others."

So, instead of doing something about the illegal immigrants over running the southwest along with the rest of the country. Instead of attempting to keep the states in the southwest from going bankrupt trying to pay for the education, health care, and law enforcement of the increased crime of illegals. The President of the United States is going to sue his own citizens when they attempt to do his job.

Update: for a good example of what we are trying to keep from crossing the border, see this latest article currently up on Fox

7 Mexican police officers killed in Ciudad Juarez

Yes, Virginia, border enforcement causes pervasive fear and increased crime. This works the same way any law against something illegal works. It identifies the crime and punishes the wrongdoer. Can't do that. You might hurt someone's feelings.

Thank you, Arizona.

I wonder where that 13-year old is getting his information?

I wonder why a credible journalist would interview a 13-year old?

I plan on posting on this next week, too. Drop over and share your opinions.

Semper Fi

Z said...

Odd, isn't it? Mustang's so right about that 13 year old...who'd have bothered to interview him? And who gave that kid that information?

If I were a legal Hispanic, I'd have NO problem opening up my ID and showing proof.."sure, here it is...see ya!" And, of course, I'd probably never have done anything to provoke a search.
By the way, what legal documentation does a Hispanic born here show now? doesn't have that on his Driver's license! We don't have ID cards yet..
so, what do they use?

Karen Howes said...

It's funny how they're claiming that anti-illegal immigration laws would cause the very problems that illegal immigration itself has caused. Crime, for instance.

Chuck said...

Bob, agreed. Leftists don't get it, law enforcement is supposed to strike a little fear in the heart of criminals. It's called deterrent.

Mustang, good questions and I look forward to your post.

Z, that is a good question - I don't know what they use. I can say though that I am not in law enforcement and I can often pick out the likely illegals with a very brief encounter.

Karen, look at the murders in Ciudad Juarez today.

"We can't be in the streets anymore without the pigs thinking we're illegal immigrants."

Sounds like the people of Arizona are on the right track with this law, i wouldn't want people who refer to police as 'pigs' living in my town, not if i can help it.

And as for the mexicans caterwauling about racism, well then go to another state, preferably a liberal one, they seem to love doing really stupid things, so i'm sure they'll welcome you with open arms.

And as for the agreements with Arizona, fine look at them all you want and if you can get a better deal elsewhere, go. It's not like you made the deal in the first place simply because of your long-time affection for Arizona or something. Lying, racist scumbags.

Chuck said...

MK, now they are rioting in Pheonix. They clearly need to welcome these people with open arms.

Brooke said...

Chuck, I couldn't have put it any better than your last paragraph!

And that bit about the guy that runs a "migrant shelter" just south of the border while Mexico dares to tell us that they will examine policy?

I'm flabbergasted.

Chuck said...

Brooke, the Mexican government is not going to stop illegals - money sent home by illegals is something like 20% of their economy.

Brooke said...

Plus, most of the government is owned by the drug cartels, who definitely aren't going to secure the border and shut down their bosses' 'travels.'

They get paid well not to.

Ticker said...

What are the idiots going to fight about this law? It is identical to the Federal Law that is NOT BEING ENFORCED! If you read the Federal law just substitute State for the word Federal and there you have Arizona's law. The Dems are afraid that they will lose about 30 million voters and that is the only problem with the law.
