    For Sale: American Citizenship

    For sale: American citizenship.

    Contact: Sen. John McCain and U.S. Reps Jeff Flake and Jim Kolbe

    What part of "illegal" do they not get? When Arizona’s senior senator and two congressmen released their plan to push amnesty, millions of illegal aliens beamed with pleasure at the idea of gaining legal status after years of living a life as a law breaker.

    In 2003, 77 border hospitals filed for bankruptcy, violent illegal alien gangs plague our cities and criminal justice cost sore, our education system is overwhelmed. What does it take for our elected officials to recognize and respond to the damage to this nation?

    With an estimated 23 million illegal aliens living in the United States, this “amnesty on the installment plan� robs U.S. citizens of security and threatens the American way of life.

    While illegals have been taking jobs away from Americans and depressing wages of other jobs, they have also been taking advantage of our services. In Arizona alone, it is estimated free education and health care for illegals runs taxpayers more than a billion dollars. Illegals receive at least $69 billion in services nationwide. Amnesty will cause this cost of social programs to triple for the taxpayer.

    At least 500,000 illegal aliens call Arizona home, according to recent estimates. The amnesty plan would make them legal at a cost of about $2,000. For two grand, some of Washington’s elite want to brush aside the will of the people.

    Instead of getting real action, McCain is more concerned about how many employees would be lost at the world-renowned Camelback Inn in Paradise Valley if all the illegals there were rounded up. McCain’s comments to a Capitol newspaper when he announced his immigration plan were shameful and an attempt to trivialze the illegal immigration problem that is gripping this country.

    Instead of worrying about the resort industry, McCain and the others should consider the impact of illegal immigration on U.S. citizens, the country’s economy and social impact.

    Far from the typical portrayal of illegal aliens as those just seeking a better way to support their family, illegals are responsible for a significant amount of crime in this country. More than 4,000 murder warrants from border states seek suspects who are believed to have fled to Mexico. They also depress wages for Americans seeking entry into the workforce.

    Most public opinion polls show Americans are fed up with illegal immigration, with 80-plus percent supporting the use of local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws and similar number of people opposing amnesty.

    The McCain-Flake-Kolbe proposal contains fatal flaws while at the same time demands the common person put aside common sense.

    The fed's casually enforces immigration law now. Why, with a new law, would there be a difference?

    And with the hope of amnesty on the horizon, what is left to dissuade another 23 million illegal aliens from making the trek across our desert if they know that eventually they can earn U.S. citizenship and all the benefits that accompany it?

    These are serious questions that are not being addressed by the people who advocate an easing of our immigration laws.

    And instead of demanding enforcement of immigration laws that are on the books, McCain and others give the government the right to abdicate its sole authority to keep our borders secure.

    State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law. There is no extant federal limitation on this authority. The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws.

    This is why I have move so fervently to give our state and local police the ability to determine the residency status of suspects. By uncuffing our police, we add a new layer to border enforcement.

    This new law, which is awaiting Gov. Janet Napolitano’s signature, is critical if we are serious about the illegal alien invasion and the crime that comes with it. This is a way to cut down on illegal immigration without compromising our laws or our national security.

    If they really and want to help instead of $1 billion of tax dollars to reimburse hospitals a partial cost of illegal aliens taxpayer medical benefits, they need spend that to put security first and secure the border and save BILLIONS in healthcare, welfare and other services and safer neighborhoods.

    Subject: Los Angeles anti illegal alien demonstration turns violent

    An elderly white woman was struck by a thrown water bottle. She's reportedly now in intensive care with a concussion. Details will become clearer probably some time tomorrow. One of the protestors on the other side held a sign that said "Fu*k the Alamo". Don't forget to go look at the pix. Here's a couple of links:

    The Washington Times Test of Hispanic boycott fails in Arizona By Jerry Seper THE WASHINGTON TIMES Published May 11, 2005

    "We contribute to the greatness of this state and we should not be pushed around like we are." State Rep. Russell Pearce, a Republican who has sponsored several bills targeting illegal aliens, said an economic boycott would not have much impact on the state. "They're boycotting because we believe the law ought to stand for something; they're boycotting because we don't think you can come here illegally and get free stuff; they're boycotting because we think they ought to be citizens of the United States before they can vote," Mr. Pearce said. "This has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with the law. "You can't steal your way into this country and demand stuff in another language," he said, adding that politicians in Washington have failed to respond to the vast majority of Americans who want secure borders and the enforcement of immigration law. The July boycott was called to protest laws that restrict the use of the Mexican matricula, or identification card; require illegal aliens to pay out-of-state college tuition; deny access to literacy programs to illegals; adopt English as Arizona's official state language; and mandate that state funds be denied for the construction and operation of a day-workers center. Many Hispanic activists also remain angry over the passage in November of Proposition 200, which required state and local government employees to verify the immigration status of those seeking public benefits and to report to federal immigration authorities any applicant who is in violation of U.S. law. The initiative, whose key sponsors included Mr. Pearce, passed Nov. 2 with 56 percent of the vote. Several groups, including the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), said the proposition would cut off all state services, including education, medical care and police and fire services, to all individuals who are unable to immediately provide adequate proof of their U.S. citizenship or residence.? The organization brought a lawsuit, seeking to overturn the initiative, although it was dismissed by a federal judge who said MALDEF failed to prove potential harm from the enforcement of the initiative.
