Arizona stands up for America & the Heroes who did it
TheTownCrier ^ | April 26, 2010 | TheTownCrier

Governor Jan Brewer was in tune with the voters and signed the first bill in the USA by any state to enforce the law and try to do something about the invasion of her state for foreign national law breaking aliens.

Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce deserves the credit for crafting this bill and getting it through his state legislature.

Last night CBS did it's usual politically correct take on these events, but did inject this very important item.

Meet Steve Montenegro, himself an immigrant from El Salvador and now a member of the Arizona State Legislature.

Here is a promising rising star that the GOP needs to promote! Regarding the phony charge that all 'latinos' will be targets of this law.......Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

"He shouldn't worry says Steve Montenegro, himself an immigrant from El Salvador and now a member of the State Legislature. Montenegro voted for the controversial immigration law which he says opponents are distorting.

"That it is a race issue, anti-Hispanic and anti-immigrant bill," Montenegro said. "It couldn't be farther from the truth."

What the bill does he says is give police another tool to fight crime that comes with the flood across the border.

"It's going crazy here," Montenegro said. "And the federal government time and again failed tremendously to protect its citizens and secure the border."

Last, but certainly not least is Arizona Rancher Bob Krentz, who recently lost his life on his own land to the hands of an illegal alien. It all changed when he died, people started caring and took action. Arizona took action.

The media didn’t talk much about his murder, but for some reason this time more citizens noticed. Too bad they didn’t notice sooner. And if and when some of the sleeping public, most who think there is an actual guarded fence on our border, finds out how costly and dangerous this invasion is, they’re not going to be happy.

R.I.P. Bob Krentz. You served your country more than you’ll ever know.

A must read on this legislation is given to us by John Lott, the premier researcher on the 2nd Amendment. Fears of Arizona's Immigration Law Are Bogus

The Squatter Support Squad is on full alert, trying to destroy this law, and it should be noted...contrary to their 'unconstitutional' claim......that the new Arizona law does indeed follow federal law!

Federal Immigration and Nationality Act

Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law. There is no extant federal limitation on this authority. The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws. Immigration officers and local law enforcement officers may detain an individual for a brief warrantless interrogation where circumstances create a reasonable suspicion that the individual is illegally present in the U.S. Specific facts constituting a reasonable suspicion include evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens.

“Meet Steve Montenegro, himself an immigrant from El Salvador” Central Americans have been victims of Mexico's Racist Immigration policies for decades so I am not surprised that this guy would be on our side.

*****************

Hmmm... I’m here in L.A. and voted in a Daily News (newspaper) poll — some 75% or more (I can’t remember exact number) voted that YES, Brewer did the right thing for AZ. I was totally shocked.

The people who read this particular paper live in areas ranging from far left to moderate to right wingers. The lefties, if they get a paper, still get the LA Times, of course. Even so, to get such a vote in L.A. was, I thought, pretty dramatic.

I was listening to KGO, San Fran last night....they actually called this an INVASION! The host, liberal, even agreed that San Fran was way off base calling for a boycott of Arizona.

Interesting comments at the blog:

I respectfully disagree w/Mr. Montenegro.

As a Jewish Republican who was born in the U.S., I know racist laws when I see them. We can disagree all we want, but like my Israeli-born and raised father says, “don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.”

As a right-wing Jew, I can’t help but see similarities between Arizona’s new law and how the Third Reich started.

Peace.

Please explain how enforcing existing immigration laws is “racist”?!
Please define how questioning people in the country illegally is “similar” to the Nazis exterminating a class of people based on race?!
Please quit peeing on my leg...

Anonymous, have you read the bill? Did you know they are just enforcing federal laws that are already on the books? The only difference is, the feds won’t enforce the laws, it has become complete chaos in the border towns and down right dangerous. The feds won’t do anything so the state has stepped in to do it, for the rights and safety of American citizens.
Racists my behind.

Must see!

Carrying documents is required for all immigrants in U.S.
[snip]
Being a permanent resident is a “privilege” and not a “right.””

On Page 8, is this:

* Carry proof of your permanent resident status at all times. “

The brave Arizonans above have give us all reason to be hopeful. The media attention will waken the out of touch.
Beware of discouragement.

Disappointment brings discouragement.

Constant failure to realize our plans or expectations will cause us to lose confidence and hope,

and inability to handle disappointment becomes a great tool.

The following story, given to me by a friend and mentor 45 years ago,

written by Walter Knight, illustrates.

Discouragement

It was advertised that the Devil was going to put his tools up for sale.

On the day of the sale the tools were placed for public inspection,

each being marked with its sale price.

They were a treacherous lot of implements....

Hatred, Envy, Jealousy, Deceit, Lying, Pride,

and so on comprised the outfit.

Laid apart from the rest was a harmless looking tool,

well worn, and priced very high.

“What is the name of this tool?”

asked one of the purchasers, pointing to it.

“That is discouragement” tersely replied the Devil.

“Why have you priced it so high?”

“Because it is more useful to me than the others.

I can pry open and get inside a man’s heart with that,

when I cannot get near him with other tools.

Once I get inside, I can make him do what I choose.

It is badly worn because I use it on almost everyone,

since few people know it belongs to me.”

We tried way back in 1994 with Prop 187.

Now the state has so many Hispanics its no longer going to seal the border.

“California would never have the guts to do such a thing as Arizona did.....but it sure needs to.”

We tried back in 1994 by passing Prop 187. It was subverted by an unholy alliance of the Treason Lobby that includes a crooked federal judge, a Democrat Governor, and a RINO named Arnold with his Open Borders GOP sponsors.

Makes the reason for the Arizona law quite clear

49 more states to go...
