Supreme Court affirms Ariz. law is useful, needed (287g)
Supreme Court affirms Ariz. law is useful, needed

The Supreme Court ruling upholding the right of local police to verify a person’s immigration status legitimizes section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which was signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996.
Congress realized that local law enforcement assistance was required in order to enforce existing immigration law. Under federal law, someone simply suspected of being in the country illegally can be the subject of an unobtrusive cellphone thumb scan utilizing the federal data base.
Unfortunately 287(g) was not facilitated by the federal government nor pushed by local officials more preoccupied with being politically correct than exhibiting the necessary courage required in order to protect the best interests of our citizens and taxpayers. Since no documentation is required in order to vote, doing nothing has also provided a benefit from illegal voters on Election Day.
Today’s epidemic of illegal immigration is not the controlled arrival of our grandparents who arrived on ships docking at Castle Garden Wharf in New York City or Ellis Island. For the past several decades, millions and millions of people have arrived en masse on jet planes utilizing temporary tourist, student and work visas despite the fact that the arduous journey across the Mexican border seems to get the notoriety.
When local law enforcement agencies should be working in partnership with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, their excuse has been they do not want to inhibit victims from coming forward. Meanwhile the basic fabric of our country is being destroyed: locally, a housewife was murdered by an illegal alien contractor; human trafficking creates more prostitution; more statutory rapes are occurring; and illegal alien gangs are importing heroin into suburbia.
Economically, illegal immigrants utilizing forged documents are taking job opportunities away from the unskilled, the handicapped trying to be mainstream, and the next baby boom of teenagers who must learn a work ethic in order to save Social Security.
An untaxed black-market economy drains money from local circulation as millions of dollars are sent home to foreign nations plus there is the unreimbursed demand for public services.
Never before has this nation been so broke on the federal, state and local levels, which can be partially blamed on to the fact we are in the aftermath of the longest recession since the Great Depression.
However, before we can expect our taxpayers to give more, we need to tighten up the policing side of the government funding equation.
Considering Rockland County is within an hour’s drive of five international airports and easy drop-off for deportation, a start would be for an attorney representing the sheriff to sue the federal government and obtain a court order mandating compliance and facilitation of section 287(g).
DON'T REWARD THE CRIMINAL ACTIONS OF MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS
BY GIVING THEM CITIZENSHIP
