"The law will make entering the country illegally a state crime in Arizona..."
(Excerpt) Read more at yourwestvalley.com ...
O’connor has public pensionitis. It afflicts all who have worked in the public sector.
So much for that whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing... Guess when you run afoul of the "liberals" agenda you are assumed guilty.
“”The law will make entering the country illegally a state crime in Arizona...””
So, you got it too....That is one of the funniest statements I have seen in a while.
Hmmm. Let me see: Entering the country ILLEGALLY is...gasp!...a crime. I’m not a Supreme Court justice, but even I can fathom that something that is ILLEGAL is, well...a crime! And Justice O’Connor can’t make that connection????
Okay, so, what? The former Justice is exhorting the Seniors to avoid profiling? What?
This is an email that I just received from a friend who travels to Tuscon a lot. This information needs to go viral.
From someone who lives just north of Tucson. I urge you to watch these videos and then send them on to your friends so they can see what the Feds and media are hiding in general. We here in AZ are aware of the potential..
This is the sort of information that our government should be acting on and, apparently, is not. At the least, it seems to want to keep most elected officials and the voting public in the dark (see the end of the 2nd video where a GA Congressman states that he has never seen the reports of where illegal crossers actually come from) .(not that Congressmen arent known to lie but, I will accept that this one is speaking the truth). Sec of HS, Napolitano, should be vigorously pursuing this matter given her former position as Governor of AZ. She is not which indicates to me that she has succumbed to the inside the beltway syndrome of liars and political Liberal hacks.
Arizona gets it. Do you?
“So, you got it too....That is one of the funniest statements I have seen in a while.”
Thankfully she’s off the Court...she was getting further and further left - she’s done enough damage.
For those who live outside the southwest, it’s important to put the situation here in context.
To start with, there is little or no racial animosity at all between people who are ethnically Mexican and ethnically white. There are ethnic Mexicans here whose families were US citizens when AZ got Statehood in 1912. At the same time, there are Mexican citizens who just got here illegally, and who just got here legally.
And the vast majority are somewhere in between. Most whites started arriving here from elsewhere in the 1960s, so even though they are generally citizens, they are still outsiders as well. Of sorts.
An ethnically Mexican family can have both legal and illegal members, and you can’t tell status by looking at or talking to them. There may be grandparents who speak no English, are culturally entirely Mexican, but are US citizens. In the same family are teenagers who came here as infants, know nothing of Mexico, and speak perfect English, who are technically illegals.
Legal ethnic Mexicans are very prone to enlist in the US military, and there are a lot of currently illegals who would gladly serve several honorable years in the services if they can get US citizenship.
There are also a typical number of violent criminals who need to be imprisoned, or at least immediately deported and barred from reentry, which is a serious felony if they do reenter and get caught.
There is no place for such scum, and honest people who are ethnically Mexican despise and fear them as well, as they are most often the victims of such brutes.
Ethnic Mexicans are not politically monolithic, and like other people, vote with their heads, not as a bloc. And there are a number of passionately conservative ethnic Mexicans as well. Many are strongly opposed to illegal aliens, by the way.
A hero for many Mexican-Americans was Cesar Chavez, leader of the United Farm Workers. He and his people got into some serious and bloody brawls with illegal aliens working as scab labor, and he railed against the federal government allowing so many into the US.
So the bottom line is that there are a lot of good ethnically Mexicans in the group, and they show real promise to be good citizens, if they get a legitimate chance, and a process to prove themselves.
Does identifying oneself a liberal automatically cause a lobotomy or a hemispherectomy?
How about a mandamus lawsuit against Zero for failing to secure our borders?
Secret of the SCOTUS is that recent law grads, most in their twenties, from “elite” law schools freshly indocrinated write the opinions for the judges.
The only State crime the law creates against illegals is trespassing, but there are two requirements (present on public or private property and violating 8usc1304e, failure to have documentation.)
and Oconnor must show that she is without political bias! - big fat chance - LOL
more to the point - I don’t believe she has standing in the matter under discussion!
To which I'd reply, "So have Europeans."
Anyone who entered this country illegally should be deported. This is about the rule of law not anecdotal stories about good and bad illegal Mexicans. We decide as a nation who enters this country. Citizenship is a privilege, not a right.
In summary, the Equal Protection Clause does not prohibit the Law School's narrowly tailored use of race in admissions decisions to further a compelling interest in obtaining the educational benefits that flow from a diverse student body.
