Brewer To Obama: Do Your Job

After Arizona passed its immigration law the liberals went nuts and started screaming about racial profiling even though the law mirrors federal law and even though none of them had, at the time, read the thing. The Obama regime is suing Arizona over the law saying that immigration is a federal issue and the states are not allowed to make immigration policy. If the federal government had done its job this would not be an issue but Obama is not willing to secure our borders until he gets immigration reform passed. Governor Brewer of Arizona takes issue with the regime’s claim that the border is more secure now than ever.

Imagine that. The Arizona border is so secure that there are warning signs indicating that illegal aliens and drugs are being smuggled in and that it is not safe for American citizens to be in those areas. If the federal government was doing its job then we would not need these signs and Arizona would not need to enact laws to enforce immigration. As Governor Brewer put it to Obama; Do your job.

I don’t understand why Brewer does not put her national guard troops on the border and heavily arm them. The troops belong to the state unless they are federalized. Since they have not been federalized (at least not all of them) she can use them as she sees fit to protect her state. Heavily arm them and tell them to apprehend those who enter illegally and that if violence breaks out to use lethal force.

While Obama is engaged in extortion with regard to securing the border after immigration reform the area along the border (and as far as 80 miles in) is being ceded to the Mexicans who come and go as they please.

As far as the lawsuit goes, what leg does the federal government have to stand on? Will it claim that immigration enforcement is the responsibility of the federal government and that states are not allowed to make immigration policy?

If this is the argument then how does the federal government explain sanctuary cities? Providing sanctuary to illegal aliens is an immigration policy and if Arizona does not have the legal right to make policy keeping illegals out then other places have no legal right to enact policy to keep illegals in.

If Arizona loses the lawsuit then all sanctuary cities must be eliminated.

Even if Arizona wins, it has the only policy designed to actually uphold the rule of law but I bet the liberals will never see it that way.

I am with Governor Brewer and the people of Arizona on this. If the feds can’t do their job then it is up to the adults to step in and take care of things.

Or, to paraphrase Obama; we don’t need the people who caused the mess to be saying a whole lot about it. Just get out of the way and let us get things done.

    Maybe AZ’s National Guard has already been federalized and sent to the front with Afganistan or Iraq.

    • Big Dog says:

      Over 600 Arizona Army and Air National Guard men and women are still serving on federal active duty in Iraq, Afghanistan, and within the continental U.S. Over 7,000 have been called to federal active service since Sept 11, 2001. Link

      Arizona has 8000 Guardsmen so I don’t think that is it since a little over 7000 remain at home.

  2. Big Dog says:

    That was the argument used during Katrina as a way to blame Bush for sending all the guardsmen to the Middle East when they should be at home helping. At the time there were about 11,000 Louisiana guardsmen and about 4000 deployed so that argument was invalid as well.

    I do not understand why American citizens cannot stand on the border and take shots at anyone who violates the border- it would help discourage wetbacks, and get some target practice done at the same time.
    I will bet the flow of drugs slows also.
    Mexicans really should remember- Americans perfected the firearm.
