"So Arizona Was Right After All?

"Arizona's law that attempts to enforce existing immigration statutes was premised largely on the fact that the federal government, which has constitutional responsibility for border control, has essentially abdicated--not just failing, but actually refusing to carry out its constitutional responsibility, as a matter of policy. President Obama, other members of his administration, and many more on the left responded with vicious attacks on the people of Arizona, accusing them of racism, irresponsibility, and so on.

But the American people didn't agree, and the White House has been reading the polls. So now Obama has announced that he is sending 1,200 National Guard troops to the Southwestern border and will increase funding for federal immigration law enforcement.

So is Obama now prepared to admit that Arizona was right all along? That its complaints about lax federal enforcement were legitimate, and not motivated by racism or hysteria? And that if National Guardsmen can enforce immigration laws without resort to unwarranted racial profiling, so can Arizona law enforcement personnel?

Of course not. Obama is just trying to get out from under one more bad decision that has caused him to take a thumping in the polls. It would be nice, though, if he learned a lesson about slandering his fellow Americans."

You wouldn't know it from the mainstream media! My local news is from Phoenix and it's mostly negative news about the law.

Thanks Toad! Maybe they learned journalism from state media behind the Iron Curtain.

Thanks Sully! Objective media is something we've not had in a long time. Our media is much too polarizing .... divide and conquer.

At least 17 other states are considering similar laws. One of the few and most important functions of a federal gov't is to protect the borders. With our technology, this border could be secured today. The fact that they are not doing it shows their real agenda.

Thanks Rick! Borders could have .... and should have .... been sealed years ago.
