the Arizona law -- more than just about illegal immigration

Robin's Commentary --

There is been quite a controversy over Arizona's immigration law which has opened the eyes of the people in several areas.

One of them being that there are people in the federal government who are criticizing the Arizona law, who have NEVER READ THE LAW ITSELF.

A trend that we're seeing in our government both local and federal, where our REPRESENTATIVES are voting on or criticizing laws that they have never read.

Additionally, the other message that the federal government is sending regarding the Arizona law, is that "the states do not have the right to enforce federal laws" even though failure of the federal government to enforce the laws is affecting the safety of US citizens.

The murder of a popular farmer in Arizona was the last straw so to speak as far as waiting for the federal government to do its job and protect our borders.

The people in Arizona finally said, "Enough is enough" and decided to pick up the ball where the government has left off.

But it sends another unintended signal as well.

The fact that the federal government is turning its back to illegal immigration and not securing our borders and protecting the sanctity of our nation brings into question to why anybody should be concerned about following any law, especially if enough people decide they don't like it and the government refuses to enforce it.

A recent article in the Oregonian, titled "Some Oregon contractors ignoring new federal [EPA paint certification] law that went into effect in April, stating that "most contractors have not gotten their certification, and are not following the Environmental Protection Agency rule that went into effect in April."

What is interesting about this article is not so much about the contractors not getting certified, but the comments that readers are saying. For example...

MILLIONS every year ignore and break a federal law, and they are REWARDED with FREE education, FREE medical care, TAX-FREE income, SPECIAL treatment, etc........... they are called ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.......contractors that break the lead laws will face far greater consequences-- is that justice?"

"Pondy---You're absolutely correct--but, remember, laws ONLY apply to certain individuals--but, NOT illegals, they are exempt. Anyone who thinks otherwise, is a racist---THAT is what libs, illegals and Obama tells us. So be it.....ENFORCE US Immigration Law!"

"Oregon government supports illegal aliens, why should Oregon citizens support the government."

Posted by TankFixer
"So we are supposed to ask for a contractors lead certification but are evil if we ask if the workers are legally in this country? Simply pathetic."

Posted by Oregon patriot
"the contractors are justified in "skirting the new federal rules." Until the Obama ministration follows all the federal rules, the contractors should ignore this remodeling rule. Think of it as nonviolent civil disobedience."


This article had nothing to do with immigration, however, it shows that people are getting so fed up with the federal government not enforcing our immigration laws, they are asking themselves why they should be concerned about any federal law.

It is a trend in my opinion that if we're not careful, will be the downfall of our nation.

I believe that many of the top level executives in the Federal Government are over-payed and under-worked. First we have the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security speaking out against the Arizona law without reading it. Then the head of ICE, John Morton said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. Is it too much to ask these people to do their job?

good point, that is why the Arizona sheriff commented that he has plenty of room to house the illegal immigrants that have been arrested.

He said that if the federal government will not take them, that he will.
