Skip to comments.17 More States Planning Arizona "Illegal" Crackdown
Posted on 05/22/2010 1:03:52 PM PDT by Freedom Frayed
In what is developing into a standoff between states and the federal government that could be bigger than gun control or even health care, 17 states have launched versions of Arizona's immigration law, even as federal officials say they may not bother to process illegal aliens caught by the states.
William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, which has been trying to get officials to address the open southern border for years, warned the consequences could be dire.
"Over the last couple days, Obama and the chief of ICE have refused to honor their oaths of office," he said. "Their constitutional requirement is to enforce existing laws. "They've told the American public to go eat cake," he said. His organization is assembling the list of state efforts to emulate the Arizona law, which makes it illegal under state as well as federal law to be in the state without documentation.

I wonder who is behind this in Michigan? Certainly not Granholm. My bet is Cox. Being an election year and all.
Don’t forget RACISTS!
MD is a joke. We’re the ones to give illegals a drivers license. Somebody’s got us wrong in that list.
Amen to that. I would guess the odds to be less then 50-50.
We just need a few million more people to tell the Whitey House, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more!”
I’ll donate a dozen bricks....and transport them south, myself!!
Yup. And I’m damn proud of Gov. Brewer. She was hesitant to take this job after Napolitano skulked off into the darkness. Brewer is doing a better job than any of our elected governors, IMHO! Many don’t realize it but the first thing she did when she became governor was tell the SEIU thugs to take a hike and to leave Arizona state employees alone. Napolitano had turned the SEIU thugs loose on the employees shortly before sneaking off to ObamaLand.
I read about one of our state legislators pushing this several days ago. Cox will obviously back it but Moleface isn’t even sure there’s a difference between citizen and non citizen any more.
AR is not as “liberal” as some folks think. When it comes to immigration, the illegals have yet to become vocal.
For what it’s worth, as soon as I learned Seattle was boycotting AZ, I emailed the CofC, and the mayor and told them I would no longer be buying Strarbuck’s anything, and I would make sure my friends knew my feelings. I think I also need to email Starbuck’s!! LOL!
I’m waiting to see when WA will begin to whine about “tourism.”
Boycott Backlash: Some stay out of city
Growing number vow not to do business in Austin
The boycott apparently is already being felt according to the Austin Hotel and Lodging Association who sent KXAN this statement:
The AHLA is not a political association and does not in any way support travel boycotts of any kind. Hotels in Austin are now beginning to experience concrete evidence from the many visitors now canceling their leisure or business plans to Austin.
The states need to take the federal government to court and have a judge force them to take the illegal they capture.
This is exactly what the W.H, liberals and the MSM feared, and why they so wanted this not to happen!!
America is growing a backbone, state by state!!
Good for U.S., at long last!!
Not the poster you’re looking for, but you may find what you want here:
Heh heh heh. Thank you for standing with Arizona! We’re taking a lot of arrows right now but we’re holding our own so far and are returning fire.
Yeah but our governor will never let Texas do something similar. Sad, I have to vote for the guy because his opponent is such a twerp.
Farmers Branch, a suburb of the Metromess, was trying to get a law that landlords can’t rent to illegals. If they did that where I live, Garland, the population would halve.
I hear you. My state (or at least the one I live in now), Rhode Island, is also on the list.
Next up: Pigs fly!
p.s. I was born and raised in Arizona, and I am very proud of my home state.
Alabama is too corrupt to be on this list. :*(
The democrats are the anti-American and un-Constituional assholes!
It is the Conservatives who are standing up for America, as these damn democrats tear it down.
Mark Levin said it best. Right versus left IS right versus wrong!!!
