Stand With Arizona
How significant was Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn's ruling upholding key sections of Alabama's H.B. 56 immigration law? Well, just ask the New York Times, which flipped out over it in their lead editorial:
A federal judge has upheld most of Alabamas new immigration law, the nations harshest and most radical attempt to harness a states power to find and punish illegal immigrants. The consequences for Alabamans will be serious not just for the undocumented, but for their blameless citizen children, for those who are mistaken for unauthorized immigrants and for farmers and other business owners ensnared in the law."Harsh", "radical", "find...punish", "unauthorized immigrants". Read enough of the Times' editorial and you might actually forget that illegal immigration is, well, ILLEGAL.
While the Times is relieved that Judge Blackburn suspended (pending trial) sections making it a crime to "harbor or transport" illegals, barring illegals from public universities, and preventing day laborers from seeking work, they spared no hyperbole to describe the sections she upheld which do no more than uphold Federal immigration laws on the books:
But her mixed ruling was most discouraging for what survived. Judge Blackburn upheld the papers, please section, an echo of Arizonas notorious attempt to require state and local law enforcement officials to check a persons immigration status during traffic stops if they have a reasonable suspicion that someone is here illegally.Ah, the old "Papers, please" reference to Nazi Germany, suggesting that checking people's IDs is akin to the Nazis checking "papers" for Jews or political opponents to arrest or otherwise persecute. But what if you are here in the U.S. legally, as a Permanent Resident? Well, you get a "green card" to prove it.
She upheld a section that criminalized the willful failure of an illegal immigrant to carry federal immigration papers.
And what is the Federal law for green card holders regarding carrying the ID? It is written right on Form I-797, which all holders receive:
Hmm...what does that say? Let's take a closer look...
Wow, those evil Nazis at Homeland Security mandate that green card holders carry their "papers" at "all times"! And those are LEGAL immigrants. How outrageous! I am expecting a follow-up editorial from the Times decrying this Fascist mandate.
EXCERPT...READ THE REST HERE
Funny. I work with an older lib....who HATES illegals (one of her pet peeves). She also subscribes to the NYT.
I’ll have to ask her tomorrow about this one.
shhh don’t tell Perry. It’s heartless.
The left is so used to getting their way that it just freaks them out when somebody doesn’t just do as they’re told.
Just how are farmers and businesses “ensnared” by this law? Did someone trick them into hiring illegals? Is the NYT aware that it’s already a crime?
America is in dire need of “media” reform. Our “media” REALLY sucks!
Hey NY Times!
Everybody over there got their “papers” in order?
ICE should be there right...about...
I don’t see what they’re mad about. They LIKE illegals, and now that they are leaving Alabama maybe N.Y. will be LUCKY and they will go THERE! Alabama’s loss will be their gain!
Closer than going back home for the illegals, right?
At a sheriff’s office, somewhere in Alabama:
:O.k., the black leather coats are looking goooodd! Let’s read our arrest cards before hitting the road.
After me, ‘Shu haf your papers? Ya? Just routine. Hmmm...I sink zeeezz papers are not hokay.’
(I’m working on my NYT idiotorial)
Not surprising the LOVELACES fought for the Confederacy. (Geneology)
This law is making Perry look like an IDIOT for defending open borders and keeping Texas a nice place for illegals to hang out in.
The New York Time = barack obama = The New York Times...’nuff said.
“America is in dire need of media reform. Our media REALLY sucks!”
Agreed. I ran across this:
this morning, and it addresses the issue of the agenda for communist destruction of America from within. Among the points of the agenda is the take over of the media.
This video is brief, (6-7 minutes) and is an outstanding recap of that agenda given by a young state representative who has been tracking this story since the early 90’s when a friend, who wanted to know what was being discussed but was unable to attend, asked him to go to a communist party meeting in his stead.
Please consider reading it and passing it along to others who are not as knowledgeable about the dangers we are facing.
Ready now? Three cheers for Alabama. Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray!
You should see the whole vid/docu.. it is about 2 1/2 hours long.. but VERY informative, even to us ‘normal’ people.
The NY slimes thinks its still relevant
I didnt know this was an excerpt! Do you by any chance have a link? I’d be very interested in viewing it. Thanks for the heads up!
