Skip to comments.Hayworth: Obama Wants ‘No Enforcement of the Law’ on Immigration
Posted on 07/18/2010 1:44:36 PM PDT by Qbert
Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that the Obama administration supports no enforcement of immigration law as he defended Arizonas controversial statute that gives police new powers to question people they suspect are in the country illegally.
The Justice Department is suing to block the statute, claiming it illegally preempts federal law.
It should come as no surprise that any number of people who advocate open borders and advocate no enforcement of the law, including this current administration, are trying to throw up these roadblocks, Hayworth said on the CBS program Face the Nation.
Hayworth is challenging Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the GOP primary.
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) attacked the Arizona law. He warned of a constitutional crisis because other states may adopt similar laws, and said the Arizona statute will unavoidably lead to widespread racial profiling.
Who are they going to ask? They are going to ask somebody that looks Hispanic, said Richardson, who is Hispanic, referring to police actions that will occur under the new state law. They are not going to ask somebody that looks like J.D. Hayworth. They are going to ask somebody that looks like me.
Richardson also said the law would hurt U.S. relations with Mexico and Central America. He called for broad federal immigration reform that includes enhanced border security and a path to citizenship for people in the country illegally.
But Hayworth disputed allegations that the state law would lead to profiling. The law is clear the civil rights of all persons will be respected, he said.

So what are you afraid of Richardson?
You have never been asked for an ID before?
Why should anyone with proper ID be afraid to show it?
I have to show mine every time I cash a check.Doesn’t frighten me in the least.
“So what are you afraid of Richardson?

Yeah, and he would only be asked for his ID under AZ law in the first place if there was a suspicion that he might’ve broken some other law.
He’s probably afraid that if the law sticks New Mexico Citizens will want one too.
Probably afraid they'd run a background check on him and some of his shady dealings would pop up into the daylight. Richardson is one exceedingly slimy weasel. He makes Harry Reid look like a Saint.....
Maybe Richardson is an illegal and he doesn’t want to have to prove who he really is. People fight laws if they have something to hide. Something like..................maybe a President?
Obama Lawsuit May Be Kicked Out of Court
Thanks for the link
Thanks- that made my day :-)
Failure to enforce duly enacted laws and statutes could be an impeachable offense.

“Obama Wants No Enforcement of the Law on Immigration”
That’s because he doesn’t think of them as illegal immigrants, but as “Undocumented Democrats.”
Crazy thing is... for a long time I thought Richardson was Native American. I was surprised when I learned he was of Hispanic ancestry.
I think Arizona should not merely defend the suit against their law, but file a counter-suit demanding a writ of mandamus against Obama and all subordinate officers with duties related to immigration compelling them to enforce Federal Immigration statutes as written.
Well, you might not have been wrong: most "Hispanic" folks have ancestors who were in the New World prior to the European settlement, who got Hispanicized by the Spanish conquerors.
