    Stand with Arizona ^ | 09-26-2012 | John Hill
    Today is the birthday of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who helped spark a movement across America to take back the rule of law on immigration when she signed S.B. 1070 on April 23, 2010. She has shown grit and determination in the face of constant opposition and hostility from the Obama Administration. And she stood alone to oppose Obama's lawless "Dream" amnesty by declaring that those illegal aliens would be barred from driver's licenses, in-state tuition and state benefits. She has been steadfast in her dedication to the rule of law, and today we salute her... HAPPY BIRTHDAY GOVERNOR!Please leave...

    by John HillStand With Arizona It's no contest. It's not even close. California is America's undisputed "Sanctuary State" for illegal aliens. And now, in their hysteria over the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the central provision of Arizona's S.B. 1070 - that requires police officers to check the immigration status of people they stop - California legislators are setting new lows in contempt for the rule of law. The California Senate on Thursday passed a bill supporters dub the "anti-Arizona" law, which seeks to "shield illegal immigrants from status checks by local police" and which even welcomes in illegals from states such as Arizona. The...

    The Obama Administration shows us once again who is its TRUE constituents: ILLEGAL ALIENS.The Department of Justice, angered by the Supreme Court unanimously upholding Arizona's ability to check the immigration status of anyone stopped by police under S.B. 1070 -  has setup a "hotline" to report "civil rights" concerns under the new law. The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons. Meanhwhile, where's the "hotline" for CITIZENS who have lost their jobs...

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERIFF JOE! Arpaio is 80 today, and if it's true that "80 is the new 60" then Joe is far outperforming most 60 year olds as well. Sheriff Joe's department captures an astounding 25% of ALL illegal aliens apprehended in the U.S. every year - 80% of whom are caught heading to states OTHER than AZ. So not only is Joe keeping alien criminals off AZ streets, but also off of streets near YOU. Joe is the biggest symbol we've got in the war against illegal immigration, and now against a corrupt Attorney General and administration trying to...

"Puente", a left-wing, Soros-funded  group which advocates for illegal alien amnesty and against Arizona immigration law S.B. 1070, declared their intention to "take on" the "racist Sheriff Joe" and show they are "unafraid".

    Here we go. Ever since Obama took office, opponents of illegal immigration knew it would come to this. This Administration has already dismantled the enforcement regime against illegal aliens. They engineered a unilateral amnesty for nearly 2 million illegal aliens by a stroke of Obama's pen last August. They sued to stop states like Arizona, Alabama and Georgia from enforcing existing immigration laws after the Feds failed to do so. The Attorney General has bullied states like Texas and South Carolina, by blocking voter ID laws designed to stop voter fraud by illegal aliens and others. But no matter what...

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...

Driving around town on errands, I saw tons of police vehicles. I doubt many officers had the day off. I'm thinking of one of those Edible Arrangements, www.ediblearrangements.com. Would they be allowed to accept the gift and then eat the fruit arrangement? Is this a totaly crazy idea? I would just like to show our appreciation and support in a meaningful way.

The Yorba Linda City Council in Orange County approved a similar resolution earlier this month, countering actions taken by leaders in cities such as Los Angeles, who voted to boycott doing business with Arizona companies in protest of the law. The law tells police officers to check the immigration status of people they have stopped for another reason and reasonably suspect are in the U.S. illegally. The Hemet City Council unanimously approved the measure, proposed by Mayor...
