VIDEO: Obama: Arizona Law “Divisive” and “Unenforceable”
Eyeblast TV ^ | 7/1/2010

Posted on 07/01/2010 12:59:37 PM PDT by blog.Eyeblast.tv

Despite a majority of Arizonans and Americans attitudes on illegal immigration, 56% of whom believe illegal immigration is a serious problem, President Obama just doesn’t see it.

Today at American University, President Obama delivered his immigration reform speech, reaffirming his opposition to Arizona’s new immigration law calling it “divisive” and “unenforceable.”

Depending upon which poll you look at, anywhere between 60 and 70% of Arizonans back the law. In fact, more Americans want an Arizona style law in their states.

> Arizona Law “Divisive”

Indeed. It divides the illegal crimmigrants from Americans, born or naturalized, as well as LEGAL visitors, students, and workers.

> and “Unenforceable”

Whatever happened to, “Yes we can,” Barry?

Whatever happened to, “hope and change”?

This man’s treachery knows no bounds.

Just what you’d expect from the anointed one...

translation: “I’m not going to do anything to help solve the problem, in fact, I’m going to do everything possible to enhance the problem and bring in anybody who wants to come to the USA illegally.”

There are laws regulating how fast you can drive all over this country.

Despite said laws, people still speed.

Shouldn’t we give up on speed limits? Aren’t they unenforcable?

So is this a challenge Obama just laid out? Unenforceable? Arizona, take up that challenge and prove that it IS enforceable.

20 million illegal aliens cannot be forced to follow the law.

How come 300 million citizens can be forced to pay taxes?

I’m confused.

The real truth is that the LEFT want open boarders. Obviously to control the elections FOREVER.

This issue has NEVER been about race. IT is about whether the LEFT will override the will of the people and ensure their hold of power for the remainder of what once known as the United States of America.

It would be great to get the LEFT to admit this fact. In fact I refuse to talk to any lefty unless they admit this fact.

They want permanent control of the elections and we want to have the nation our founding fathers put together.

Simple concept really, who will win out? The jury is still out.

Pray for our country!!

Hey...obama....pick up a newspaper once in while. USA Today reported back on June 6th that Arizona's plan was already working.

Evidently, no one told the hispanics that is was "unenforceable", because the illegal ones split.

But, you're right Barry ol' buddy...it IS divisive...it's divides the LEGAL immigrants and Americans, from the ILLEGAL Invaders...and that's what over 80% of Americans want.

We know you want to start your "Pardon-a-Voter" program before November, you are as transparent as Saran Wrap...you phoney baloney Kenyan...go home.

Hispanics flee Arizona ahead of immigration law
Updated 6/9/2010 11:41 AM

By Alan Gomez, USA TODAY

Arizona's tough new immigration enforcement law is fueling an exodus of Hispanics from the state seven weeks before it goes into effect, according to officials and residents in the state.

Though no one has precise figures, reports from school officials, businesses and individuals indicate worried Hispanics — both legal and illegal — are leaving the state in anticipation of the law, which will go into effect July 29.

Schools in Hispanic areas report unusual drops in enrollment. The Balsz Elementary School District is 75% Hispanic, and within a month of the law's passage, the parents of 70 students pulled them out of school, said District Superintendent Jeffrey Smith. The district lost seven students over the same one-month period last year, and parents tell Smith the Arizona law is the reason for leaving.

Well isn’t speeding law unenforcable because I always ALWAYS, ALL THE TIME, ALWAYS get passed when driving the speed limit.

So why not just do away with speed limits, obviously they are unenforceable. Oh and do away witht he federal restrictions on Hiway funding to states due to speed limits since it is unenforceable.

I can’t stand to watch even a few second clip of the blue-lipped bastard.

So somebody who could stomach watching, tell me.....were there any American flags anywhere in sight during the speech?

Excellent point! Now he's "Surrender Barry" - we can't get the Gulf oil under control, we can't defeat the Taliban, we can't lead the world economically .... we can't, we can't, we can't .... so much for that blue-sky optimism of Fall 2008.

If the Arizona law is seen by the President as unenforceable, then how does he describe the Federal Law it mirrors. Oops, answered my own question.

“unenforceable” because Mexico owns washington D.C.?.

“I can’t stand to watch even a few second clip of the blue-lipped bastard.”

Likewise...I reached a tipping point a few months back when I went from “tolerating for up to one minute” to “instant off”.

It’s only unenforceable if liberals are the enforcers.

“How is it unenforceable?”

Easy, just don’t enforce the law. You know, like the federal version of this law that Obama doesn’t enforce...

Divisive? Absolutely! I welcome the divide between those who wish to preserve our sovereignty and those who wish to see it violated.

I thought the Arizona law was uniting the country - in opposition to the Federal government’s policy of doing nothing.

One of the President’s responsibilities is the enforcement of Federal law. When he does nothing about illegal immigration, he is dodging that responsibility.
