WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama criticized Arizona's tough immigration bill as irresponsible Friday and said his administration is examining whether it would violate civil rights.
Obama said the federal government must act responsibly to reform national immigration lawor "open the door to irresponsibility by others."
"That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten 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 list, ping
It has to suck for the annointed one. Someone (or in this case a whole state) is defying him. He can’t stand that.
Good for America, good for the rule of law, good for freedom of speech...bad for the leader of the Regime.
I can live with that. Even better, after he’s voted out.
He’s only worried about losing AZ in his reelection bid.
If this has his panties in a wad.....it’s GREAT!
Buck ewe, Farky!
President Barack Obama said his administration is irresponsible on immigration.
Man, what a jerk we have for president. Aside from being dangerous and ignorant, he’s a self-loving boob who thinks he’s a genius because he’s been told that all his life. Aside from everything else, it’s just plain depressing that our president is such an utter ass.
And how “misguided” are you Barry Soetoro?
NEVER FORGET THAT. IN AMERICAN HISTORY, SUCH A THING IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
It bothers the undocumented illegal poser.
I don’t value “fairness” I value equality and equal under the law.
now that Obozo is making “responsibility” the theme of the day, why doesn’t everyone in the country ask him how “responsible” it is for a POTUS to fail to conclusively resolve that simple little matter of his birth docs and constitutional eligibility for his office?
And to hell with the laws right bamster?
“open the door to irresponsibility by others.”
Open the door, Freudian slip?
Every legal Mexican should support this bill by saying that they will gladly show their ID in gratitude for this country and in support of the rule of law.
The only misguided people were the 69 million who voted for that clown.
It's all very simple. if you look at it from the standpoint of making the US again a nation of laws, rather than from the ctandpoint of cheating the laws to fill the voting rolls with new Democrats, whatever that may do to the schools, prisons, hospitals, and unemployment offices across the US.
And FreeRepublic is, as usual, on the subject ahead of the MSM. See second link, below.
More States must be enticed to join with Arizona now. The Bill was signed into law today.
Obama will throw everything Fed he can at this to try to knock it out.
The goal is to import more Democrat voters, and this Bill signed today makes it almost the Impossible Dream at least in Arizona for the Power Hungry Leftists. They have a fight on their hands now.
It’s going to get even uglier.
My Grandfather went into Mexico with Pershing to kill bandits prior to WWI.
Now, we just sit back and let these people murder and kidnap and bring drugs in at their leisure. Anything else is
Barry had better stay out of Arizona, or someone might ask him for proof of citizenship.
Soetoro won’t ENFORCE the federal laws that this state bill mirrors. He’s a pathetic MORON.
Responsibility from a guy who's always been cushioned, praised, protected and telepromptered is beyond ridiculous.
I’m getting ready to leave this comifornica POS state! Arizona here I come!
Your list is getting bigger and bigger.
His arrogance is filling every open space on the planet.
“President Barack Obama criticized Arizona’s tough immigration bill as irresponsible”
Poor Barry: all wee-weed up and no where to go.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry....
Thanks to Dallas59, here’s a link to the “peaceful riot” after the signing.
Buh-bye Juan Mccain and Raul “MeCHA” Grijalva
Saw the video. I am surprised the cops didn’t bust some heads.
He’s finding out that all that he is not worshipped by every American. There are actually people who don’t like him.
He has his hands full — the tea parties, Blogo, the anti-immigration crowd.... And I love every minute of it.
Pride goeth before the fall. Looks like the pride is just about over. Hopefully, the fall has started.
I couldn’t believe the restraint. That scared me. I would have hated to have been there.
the VAT tax was the immigration equalizer.....screw em.I’m in Phoenix and high five’d the ceiling
dear mr. oblabo,
i, as an american citizen, do NOT “cherish” fairness. i cherish my family, my faith, my freedom, and my country. i prefer excellence over mediocrity, and recognize that if there is a winner, there must also be a loser. i believe in our laws being enforced. you, sir, may believe that laws should only apply to certain people and only be enforced when it is “fair”. i prefer the laws apply to everyone equally and that “fairness” not be a consideration. is it fair, sir, that we the people who live in this country legally should pay for the medical expenses of those who are not? is it fair that we have to pay more in taxes to give them social service handouts? is it fair that our taxes go up to maintain them in jails and prisons? i do not think that is fair to the tax paying citizens of this country. if you truly were interested in what is fair, you would not insist that we the people continue supporting a bunch of criminal parasites. living and working in this country without our permission is illegal, and we all pay for this crime that you seem to endorse. you are only interested in what is fair to the criminal not to the victims of the crime.
Can you spell “1-9-8-4”???
Let us try to understand Obama's argument. Arizona passed a law to enforce Federal laws already on the books. And Obama is citing Arizona for enforcing the laws that Obama pledged to support when he became President.
We have a serious "disconnect" in this instance.
The law will never survive “strict scrutiny”. It is D.O.A.
My state has been singled out by the Prez as irresponsible. Hm. Never thought that would happen....
In August, we can carry concealed without a paper. It pisses them off, too. Maybe we here in AZ have a plan.
As I am in S. Utah, a mere 5 miles from the AZ border, it just makes me pack up faster to relocate to TX. As if we don’t have enough amigos in St. George now, the 90 day window on this law means I’d better get out of Dodge before the stampede. That’s what happened a couple years ago when AZ passed the strigent law involving employment documents. Couple this with our 2 hr. distance from Vegas, and it’s head-case of an economy...our unemployment rate will go up even higher than it is now.
I was in Walgreen’s yesterday, 10th person in line. There were nine people ahead of me. Not a single one of them spoke even ONE word of English.
It’s like this throughout St. George, UT.
Three cheers for Arizona and screw you obama!
“which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans”
God forbid we threaten those old basic notions.
He is worried about not being able to see the Grand Canyon.
It was no joke. The lead story was indeed about the Arizona law and what to do about it now that it has become law.
We don't have an effective immigration law says Bachelor. I wonder how he explains why it's good that we ignored the 1986 "final" immgration fix. I guess we need a shinny new law with national ID's that go Ping!
Illegal means ILLEGAL. Who'd a thunk it? Much gnashing of teeth to follow. Film at eleven.
