    How Arizona’s Immigration Bill Sparks Racial Hate
    From the July 2010 Trumpet Print Edition »
    It’s not how some people think! 
 By Stephen Flurry

    Fed up with Washington’s feckless attempts to secure America’s southern border, Arizona lawmakers took matters into their own hands. In April, Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law an immigration bill that requires policemen, during law-enforcement action like traffic stops, to act on “reasonable suspicion” in order to verify a person’s immigration status.

    “We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act,” Brewer explained. “But decades of federal inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation.”

    Democrats and civil rights leaders were quick to denounce the bill, saying it would lead to widespread racial profiling.

    Arizonans, meanwhile, are justifiably frustrated—and scared. Their state has been flooded with illegal aliens. In just the last three years alone, nearly 1 million aliens have been caught trying to sneak into Arizona. That amounts to about 900 per day.

    Those who aren’t caught roam throughout Arizona—and the rest of America.

    Not ONE thing sparks racial hate. This bill is not about hate it's about safety. Unfortunately racism will never be eradicated and tolerance only goes so far. If this government had focused on border security many years ago, we would not be having these problems now. It seems we always wait to act after the horse has left the barn.

    Obama's comments cause racism and division. Racism has been around since Mariam, Moses's sister, complained about his marriage to a Cushite. GOD punished her with leprosy.

    If the Arizona laws causes racism, the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act did long ago.
    Illegal immigration and non-enforcement cause racism among some.

    Do the opponents of this bill allow homeless people to sleep in their homes? They should open their doors to the homeless...after all, homeless people are human beings. If not, we can throw the race card at those people who don't open their homes to the homeless.

    It would be wonderful to take in all the world's poor, feed them, clothe them, house them, educate them, provide free healthcare etc.

    The USA implemented an immigration policy early in the 20th century so that we would not be innundated with the poor and be unable to assimilate them seamlessly into the culture. The wisdom of that is apparent. Even the considerable resources and prosperity of the USA is not infinite. But the American people are the most unselfish and generous people on Earth when it comes to giving to help others. To make ourselves as poor as the countries new immigrants come from or to allow increased crime and unsustainable strain on resources continue unabated is self defeating and strips us of the power and ability to help anybody.

    We are either a people of laws or we are not. And allowing knee jerk sympathy or compassion for one group of people at the expense of all others and at the expense of the law is not going to help anybody in the long run.

    Arizona's law does not add a single component that is not included in the Federal Law. In fact it is more lenient and restrictive than the Federal Law. What it does is give license to Arizona to enforce the Federal Law. And it is perfectly legal. And every state should do the same.

    Seems that many illegals are now leaving AZ for greener pastures.

    VA and NY seem to be the favored places to break the law.


    Hispanics flee Arizona ahead of immigration law - USATODAY.com


    VA and NY will be overrun with folks to mow the grass. LOL They will also be over run with children and a drain on social services.


    Carry on.
