House Hispanic leaders ask Obama to block Arizona bill
Miami Herald ^ | 4/20/10 | Abby Sewell

Posted on 04/20/2010 3:58:47 PM PDT by pissant

WASHINGTON — Hispanic leaders in the House of Representatives called Tuesday for President Barack Obama Tuesday to act against Arizona's anti-illegal immigration legislation and to throw his weight behind a comprehensive immigration overhaul.

Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., and Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., demanded a halt to the bill that passed Arizona's Senate Monday. The state's House of Representatives passed it last week. If Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs it into law, the bill would require immigrants to carry alien registration cards with them at all times and police to check people's immigration status whenever there's "reasonable suspicion" that they are in the country illegally.

Grijalva and Gutierrez said that if Brewer, a Republican, signs the bill into law, the Obama administration should step in to stop it.

"The president of the United States should simply say, 'On the issue of immigration, the Constitution is clear, my power is clear — I'm going to regulate immigration in the United States from a federal level,'" Gutierrez said.

Thomas Saenz, president of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund who appeared with the congressmen at a news conference, said that the Department of Homeland Security could end agreements that allow Arizona law enforcement to police immigration laws or the Justice Department could challenge the initiative as a violation of civil rights law.

Hold onto your pitchforks, my friends, this could become another 10th Amendment war against the boy marxist and his illegal alien coddling allies.

These people are literally demanding the right to have their compadres continue to illegally enter our country.
The federal government,both parties,have dramatically failed the nation on this issue. They have abandoned any claim to issue through decades of inaction.

Push coming to shove. Maybe AZ can ask the fraud for his BC?

This will push squishy McCain in a corner too. McCain knew Obama was not eleigible but both of them are stooges for Soros.

They’re in no position to demand anything, and Obama cannot interfere with state’s business. If anything, the Federal government owes Az. Millions for not securing the border properly.

"Hispanic leaders in the House of Representatives called Tuesday for President Barack Obama Tuesday to act against Arizona's anti-illegal immigration legislation and to throw his weight behind a comprehensive immigration overhaul."

This shows how little these "hispanic leaders" understand America'a Constitutional Republic and basically how very alien they are to our way of life, history, traditions and ethos. They are truly alien to America.

“Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.”

This is what we’re going to get a lot more of if we don’t find a way to enforce our laws and stop this mass migration! The final authority will be the courts.

On the issue of immigration, the Constitution is clear, my power is clear — I'm going to regulate immigration in the United States from a federal level

On the issue of health care, the constitution is clear, the states power is clear, it can only be done at the state level.
That never stopped Democratic Party vermin like Gutierrez from passing the soon to be repealed 0bamcare bill.

Looks like the Hispano-Racists and the Hispanic Ku Klux Klan groups are going after American Citizens exercising their Constitutional rights....and probably preparing to sue Arizona as we speak....

Seems only right. If I by a bottle of wine at the grocery I have to show my ID EVERY SINGLE TIME...so if Al-oblamo wants anything important from the states, it should require at least a birth certificate to get it...don't ya think?

Arizona’s governor needs to sign the legislation immediately(provided she hasn’t already done so).

ILLEGAL ALIENS need to take their drugs, take their crime, take themselves out of our country, back to theirs and if they won’t do it on their own, then by God, they’re going to force our authorities to do it for them.

Unemployment in our country is another reason, but we don’t need “reasons” other than they’re here ILLEGALLY.

Last time I checked, the House was supposed to represent the will of the people, but between immigration and the healthcare debacle, I fail to see how these guys represent anything else except themselves and those like them with an overwhelming need for power and to undermine the great nation we live in.

I’m watching the John Adams series. In response to Dickenson and the Pennsylvanians, the New Yorkers and South Carolinians who called for conciliation and further negotiations, Adams said,
“We’re a republic and free men, but a nation of laws, not men.” There was no turning back then or now.
Again `Tories’ are calling to a tyrant and again, I don’t think we will submit to tyranny, even if it is, as they say, “for the greater good.”
Also in the old movie, the townspeople drove both the good doctor and monster to a windmill and they burned to death (or in `Frank’s Jr.’s case, re-death).

I pulled out my pocket copy of the US Constitution and I don’t see where Obama has the power to keep Arizona from enforcing immigration laws. In fact, the only mention of immigration is Article 1 Section 8, where it says Congress is, “To establish an uniform rule of Naturalization.”

Why is he having problems with states enforcing federal laws? I bet Obama would scream to high heaven if states said they weren’t going to enforce Federal firearms laws.

"Why do they care so much about foreigners as opposed to the rest of us who are taxed out the rear end to pay for the costs of illegals?"

Could it be because they not only like paying through the nose to incarcerate them,

they love the trash spewn all over our country,

they love the drunk drivers who kill entire families,

they love those who molest infants and toddlers,

they love knowing their daughter may be gang raped

they love all the drugs being brought into our country

they love watching their neighbors homes ransacked,

they love seeing their families identities stolen,

they love paying through the nose at the ER, and seeing all the illegals get free health care,

they love watching them buy t-bone steaks for their dogs with food stamps, while they eat chicken

They love telling their teens that the reason they can't get a job in this country, is because the illegals get paid under the table - tax free

and the main reason? They will get VOTES!!!

and own......and own.......and own........and own.
