Obama Blasts Pending Arizona Immigration Law: "Irresponsibility"
www.foxnews.com ^

Posted on 04/23/2010 11:42:23 AM PDT by Mind Freed

President Obama used a naturalization ceremony in the Rose Garden to lash out at the Arizona Legislature for passing a bill requiring proof of legal status and empowering state and local police to stop people based on a suspicion of being illegal immigrants.

Obama called for comprehensive immigration reform and said Washington's failure to act has bred a climate of fear and retribution in some border states. He singled out the Arizona bill - which would make it crime to be in the state without documentation - now before Republican Gov. Janice Brewer. The governor has until Saturday to decide whether to sign it, veto it or allow it to become law without her signature.

"Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others," Obama said. "That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe."

Obama said the administration will "closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs later explained the Justice Department will monitor "potential civil rights violations" experienced by legal residents.

When asked to explain whose rights would be violated, Gibbs said:

I'm sure this has been posted... However, I wanted to post it again because I love the Biographies of the individuals who were nationalized at the ceremony. Conservatives ARE NOT racists, we don't to keep people from coming into our country, as long they come in legally. These individuals recognized how great this country is and wanted to give back by serving. These individuals are welcomed with open arms to the greatest country in the world and their service is greatly appreciated!

Forget the race bait. It is always the bait used when nothing logical is at the disposal of the libs/progs. By responding to the race-baiting you merely allow them to divert attention away from the issue. Ignore it.

POTUS has behaved in an irresponsible manner since he took office. The job is above his paygrade.

It’s not the job of Arizona taxpayers to subsidize and support Barry’s voter base.

If you actually did your job, the states wouldn’t have to. So sit down and STFU.

[...] which would make it crime to be in the state without document [...]

A crime... for whom?

Only for non-citizens.

In order to join the US military, you must be here legally. Simple as that. Obama is blurring the lines between legal and illegal immigrants. It is a disgrace that he uses these people as props to justify ignoring our laws.

fairness ? another RAT word to use along with "sensible", when talking about doing something not legal.

Hey Milhouse Obama... the federal govt. gets its power from the peoples/states... not the other way around.

You'll get a good learning come this November.

Peace out, word up bro.

That is how they will get their voting block come November. They have angered Americans to the point that they know they won’t be reelected otherwise.
