Obama calls for immigration overhaul, says Ariz. bill 'misguided' (Arizona says Obama is misguided)
washington post ^ | 4/23/2010 | Spencer S. Hsu and Anne E. Kornblut

Posted on 04/23/2010 11:13:21 AM PDT by tobyhill

President Obama urged Congress on Friday to overhaul the nation's immigration laws, saying that inaction would lead to "misguided efforts" and "irresponsibility by others."

The president also said an immigration bill currently on the Arizona governor's desk was "misguided," and said he has ordered his staff to "closely monitor the situation" to make sure the measure will not violate people's civil liberties. The bill, already passed by the state House and Senate, would require authorities in Arizona to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally.

Could this be a “message” sent to Arizona, that what he really doesn’t like is the “birth certificate” legislation there?

Everything in America, past and present, is “misguided” that is not part of Obama’s pseudo-enlightened vision of what the United States should be...which is anything BUT what it was founded to be and what made it the greatest nation in world history.

If Obama opposes the Bill, it’s good for AZ and America.

Anything he supports entails weakening of the nation.

The Kenyan needs to be cut off at the knees by a GOP landslide in November.

Hey Barry! You worry about destroying the country. We here in Arizona will be doing what it takes to stop you! (Except for the braindead high school kiddies who are protesting in order to get an “A” this semester.)

Misguided is the Folly of Immigration Reform. Ignoring the fact that 4 out of 5 Americans are AGAINST it, the Federal Government abdicated it’s responsibilty of securing the border first before implementing any guest worker program or path to citizenship legislation. Kay Bailout Hutchison de funded the the fence here in Texas. Janet Incompetano de funded the US virtual fence last month. Now the deceiving liars in DC want to pass their Amnesty during the worst recession since the Great Depression.

Is this poetic or what?

Make our nation’s stand in Arizona against Obama and force McCain to stand with Arizona!

Your governor has to sign the legislation today or over the weekend!

Friday night news dump will suffice.

Yet I have seen no response from Obama about the Krentz murder in Southern Arizona, the cartel war near Ft Hancock, TX or the many kidnappings and home invasions done by illegals. Hmmmm~ isn’t he supposed to represent the citizens of this country first?

I don’t think AZ law dogs will have to call in Sgt. Joe Friday, Sherlock Holmes or Captain Obvious: people who top out at about 5 feet, have great tans, may look a little lost, clothing styles rejected by Wal-mart and the real clue will be the jabbering in a foreign language.*
It will be about as hard as distinguishing an American couple and their kids in Tijuana from a mariachi band.

I said it on another thread and I'll say it here:
The reason Obama hates the AZ Immigration Bill is because.........

IF HE WAS STOPPED BY THE COPS IN ARIZONA, HE COULDN'T PROVE THAT HE IS A FRIGGIN' AMERICAN CITIZEN!!!

Obunghole wants to make sure no Rat voters are deported before he rams immigration "reform" through Congress.

This disgusting little Rat wants his (our) own state boycotted if we have the guts to control our border.

Boycott of Arizona urged over immigration

An Arizona congressman urged businesses on Tuesday to boycott his state if the governor signs into law a bill to make illegal immigration a state offense. Rep. Raul Grijalva, a Democrat, said businesses need to punish the state if the bill becomes law as a way of making sure no other states follow suit. "Do not do business with the state," Mr. Grijalva said at a press conference on the Capitol grounds in Washington.

There was a lawsuit filed a long time ago against a hospital in California that dressed out its security guards in green uniforms that looked a lot like Border Patrol.

I saw that and Congressman GOON can take a flying leap to Mexico or another foreign country with his anti-American rhetoric. He’s just like his Marxist president slamming Las Vegas.

The sun spends the winter in Arizona, so Congressman GOON is SOL. In fact, I look for an increase in tourism and business conventions as a result of crime reduction once the illegals are reduced in number.

I like that and the comments are good too.

Congressman GOON needs to be voted out of office.

His first duty is to "protect" the citizens of this country.
