Obama Assails Arizona Immigration Bill
The Wall Street Journal ^ | 04-23-10 | LAURA MECKLER

Posted on 04/23/2010 11:13:36 AM PDT by GOP_Lady

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama on Friday harshly criticized a proposed law in Arizona to crack down on illegal immigration and said his administration would examine the measure to see if it is consistent with federal law.

Speaking at a naturalization ceremony for active-duty members of the military, Mr. Obama also made a fresh pitch for comprehensive immigration legislation, which Democratic congressional leaders have said they will try to move this year.

Understandable since he is an immigrant himself.

The immigration bill doesn’t bother him HALF as bad as

the state requirement to prove eligibility in order to be on the ballot.

You mean the federal law where your sorry ass is supposed to be keeping these people from getting into the U.S. to begin with?!

Exactly.

A LOT of blood will eventually be shed over this issue, I think. Since the govt has ignored this problem for years, and now O-aHole wants to legalize them (for the votes), we’re left to deal with it on our own. And it’s getting way past time for action against this particular cancer.

I think Cochise County is one of the most beautiful places in the world (we live @90 miles away in Tucson). One of our favorite things to do was hiking along the river, seeing the petroglyphs, bird watching, climbing to the top of Carr or Miller Canyon where snow falls. We went twice a month. Now we stay away after running into a group of people while we were out in the “boonies.” We hid along the bank of a wash and heard spanish speakers passing. We want our State back!

For eight years, we told and asked Bush to do the same damn thing...He responded by holding Cinco De Mayo celebrations up in the White House while calling people like you, "Vigilantes".

Hey HUSSEIN, JERKOFF,

You weren't elected governor of Arizona.

Last I CHECKED, Arizona has a right as a STATE to make HER OWN LAWS.

So why don't you slink back to your little fiefdom in D.C., and read your teleprompter and leave the AMERICAN PEOPLE who are trying to survive your IDIOT PRESIDENCY alone?

If we can quit responding with “Bush’s fault”, perhaps we could denounce the only guy in position to fix the problem today?
Obama is the one who just complained about AZ attempting to resolve a problem that he continues to ignore!

We have already passed draconian”prove your right to work” laws 2 years ago, and we have lost 40% OF OUR ILLEGALS.

Yup, I agree. I stopped hiking in the Santa Ritas in the late 90s after I saw those long trails of 50 men with water bottles, crossing. Not safe for one or two women.

When I moved to AZ for graduate school (early 90s), the southern area was sooo incredibly beautiful and unspoiled. We drank water straight out of Sycamore Canyon. The illegal criminals are directly to blame for the destruction and for us being locked out of our lands. And on this topic, even those who might normally be liberal tend to agree.

This thing is going to be attacked by the Marxist using all their force. When they do find a judge to overturn it, and the supremer court upholds it, are you Arizonans ready to fight? Do you think the governor will say, “Well, we tried.” Or will she rally a new confederacy?

Another step in that direction is dumping MCCain and encouraging the AZ state Senate to pass the eligibility bill.

AZ is leading the way to save the Republic.

So true! Besides, he’ll take care of the Arizona bill by passing AMNESTY for tens of millions of new DEMOCRAT voters.
