    AZ is on the right track. The area and also CA has to do something to stop the illegals and the fraud involved in the situation. I can see many states taking the same stand with illegals. We don’t know who is coming across the borders and we don’t know who the illegals are and what they are doing. Obams doesn’t seem too care if the American people are paying for all this Welfare and medical to take care of Illegals. My daughter is a teacher and most of the kids in the class are illegal, they go back too Mexico every weekend but they are living with a realative here in the U.S.A so they can go to school. The relative can get foster care for the kids and also they get free meals at school and a lot of other perks.

    Thank God for this man, he asked all the questions the majorities of americans would ask this terriosts appeaser AG Holder. Holder should resign or be fired immediately, he cannot bring himself to say the words islamic teriosts. Why? What is he trying to hide? He is another joke in this thug Hussein Obama’s administration. He is not worried about the law or applying it, he is merely catering to the mexican an d illegal immigarant voting blocks. He and thug Hussein Obama could care less about thier rights only thier votes, because they are surely gonna need them in the upcoming elctions of 2010 and 2012.

      How did some of your commenters get past the comment policy rules? I had no idea that I was receiving any kind of info from such shallow minded people. To prove my point, Mike had to make sure he apologized for a misspelled word because most of you are incapable of neither reading broadly nor thinking broadly. Thank God you are a minority of Americans.

        Jam S I expect there are many comments removed that don’t follow the policy – However, I believe they prefer to keep censorship to a minimum and remember, what would be censored by one person, would not by another. It’s a narrow tightrope to walk regarding one’s personal liberty.

        • Jam S.

          Yes, and I see that I did not read the rules correctly in the first place. It states, “we will not tolerate racism, profanity or slanderous comments toward the author(s) or comment participants”.
          We can’t degrade one another but can encourage others to denegrate President Obama. Thug Hussein Obama? What are you people. . .5th grade bullies. I’ve NEVER in my 61 years read so many immature and uneducated comments. As a Christian, I should be praying that God forgive you, but I pray that He takes you to the wood-shed for a good ass whipping. Shame on the lot of you.

          • SiliconDoc

            Jam S.
            Yet, you swear ( “ass whipping” ) in your response, you call those commenting here shallow minded (breaking the no name calling rule you posted, violating the rule you so arrogantly posted! You’re a joke fella.).
            You also call the wrath of God down.
            Seems to me it’s far worse than just calling Obama a name. It is far worse. Period.
            Furthermore, you claim you’ve never seen such a thing in 61 years of your life. I guess you were in a coma when G. W. Bush was President so shortly ago ? No, you weren’t, it’s called being dishonest while angry, or worse.
            Considering your propensity for swearing after chewing out others here for words they typed, I suspect what those around you hear is far worse than what you’ve typed, and that on a daily basis.
            So congratulations for being who and what you are.

            61 one year old praying to God for help about the Truth that hurts.
            I am a Christian too, and like you, we better be quick in doing our prayer, as it will be restricted shortly if not, encouraged, not to be practiced, as it will offend others. The difference between right and wrong practiced by Christians,will soon be outlawed as well. My advise, start praying to Mohamed, and you will have a better respond and likely to be more accepted in a Socialist environment that you are now living in. When we are mocked as Christians, do not forget that the ADL is also anti Christ, and has as its biggest Fow, the Chatholic Church. Research comments made by Churchill and Bengurian at the time, ( not sure of his correct name (pronounciation),and you will understand how concerned Churchill was about the Jewish so called new world order. Regarding Obama, go to
            In conclusion, do not pray for an individual, but instead pray only for your Nation. I am not even an American, but I do pray for that Nation called America.

    • liz

      I totally agree that Holder is a joke. The AZ bill is a great step towards righting the wrongs of immigration.I do believe Ovomit is counting on amnesty voters to win him the 2012 election. Our economy cannot take another term of tax, spend, and trash America. We have to stand up to these thugs and get the word out. Obama has never proved citizenship, his CT SS number, selective service number fraud, or the fact he never attended Columbia University.

        hd, it’s true. Progressivism rots the mind and lays waste to societies. Maybe you should have been a politician. You obviously don’t read, so you’d fit right in with Obummer and his stooges.
        An old expression says sugar dissolves, and progressives melt. Get yourself a good umbrella. You’ll need it every time it rains.

  • http://google mike b.

    Of course the state-controlled mainstream media is gonna ignore this story. Rep. Poe is right on the money. Your suggestion to spread this story that the state-controlled mainstream media is ignoring is great and just proves again how informing the personal liberty digest is and how good a job they are doing that the state-controlled mainstream media should be doing and the american media once did, as they should do, without the anti-american, Hussein Obama-apology making, liberal slant.

    • Steve Sherman

      Whenever the central truth is ignored, you KNOW that the media has an agenda to spew. Media does this on virtually every issue. Therefore, for the sake of this nation, we must ignore(and get the masses to ignore them too) We who understand what’s going on, NEED TO EDUCATE those around us.
      The God-Hating Media will never like the truth for Satan is the father of lies. The Prince of the Air is also the Prince of the Airwaves.

  • s c

    Just in case there’s any doubt, when the lamestream media ignores topics, they call it ‘objectivity.’ When conservatives and media journalists who aren’t cheap hookers for social engineers talk about objectivity, they call a spade a spade.
    When braindead, pc robots are trying to protect their bosses from the wrath of the people, ass-kissing pusscakes like Holder come out of their rat holes. What do you expect from THE “lawyer” who helped Bubba Clinton FREE those Puerto Rican TERRORISTS?
    Get used to it. So is Obubba pulling Holder’s strings, or is Holder just another prostituted, sans ethics, braindead robot for traitors like saul alinsky?

  • William E. Hudson

    Everyone who is interested in knowing the truth should have seen the video of Ted Poe questioning our Attorney General, Eric Holder. The most important effect of this video was to expose the vast inadequacy of Attorney General Holder. We can only lament such a poor choice for such an important position. Have we arrived at a place in history where an Attorney General proposes to make comments on something for which he is immensely unprepared? Can we believe that he didn’t have the time to even read a ten page “law”, but seems to “know” that it is unconstitutional? Even if he had read it, he might have discovered that the law is basically a copy of a national
    law that has been in place for a while, but is simply NOT being enforced. And isn’t it already a “constitutional obligation” for our federal government to “protect our borders”??? Of course this is something that the federal government has conveniently ignored since “Obamacare” became the “law of the land”. We need more people like Ted Poe–and fewer people like Eric Holder, who is always suspicioiusly silent when it comes to standing up for our country? This video has emphatically brought out an important truth that many of us already knew–that we need to get rid of these appeasers who are more concerned with political correctness than with standing up for their own country. William E. Hudson

    • Sharon Abbott

      Hello William, I would not be able to state all the things you said in such a profound and comprehensive way. I merely want to tag on to your very well presented observations. This Holder sounds pathetically like our President in the habit of making judgment on things he has no knowledge of, and may God help us all. Thank you for your leadership qualities. Sharon Abbott

  • Homer

    TRUTH is The Aty General is doing nothing but being circumloquious, KE TALKS IN CIRCLES. This is waht all politicians (except for a few good ones) who desire that this nation be made a “Socilaist” nation and anything to make it what they want and to take this country the way that so many before it have gone down, to the scrapheap of nations and to slavery and 3rd world status! That is their goal! It’s either stand up to their tyrany or be subjected to their masterful subjections!!! The truth is that men only learn one thing and that is that they never learn from their mistakes!!! Where is Obams’s birth certificate.

  • Rowdy

    Indeed holder the folder says he will eventually get around to spending a good evening reading this law from Arizona. Excuse me a whole evening he said. You could read this in the break while someone goes to the bathroom. If it will take him an evening to read this ten page law are we really supposed to think that he ever read the health care bill before passing it to law? Are you kidding me. If it would take him an evening to read this bill he couldn’t read the health care bill in the rest of his life. Yet he can sit and pass judgment on the immigration law from AZ and pass the health care bill, all without reading any of them. Isn’t that what these people are supposed to be paid to do. They are supposed to be good at analyzing documents and reasoning them out as to good or bad. I am sorry but that just isn’t happening, it is obvious that these people are not even reading these things let alone digesting them and reasoning out right from wrong. Every day and in every way they prove more and more that we the American people are being taken to the cleaners, we are paying these people good money to do their job and they aren’t even trying. They are just cruising and taking our money and serving us up for dinner to the terrorists and progressiveist’s that are out to destroy our once great nation of liberty and freedom. Throw the bums all out, there are plenty of good people that can and will do the job right. protect us from terrorists crossing our borders at will and setting up to attack us again and again from within as if Obummer isn’t doing a good enough job already. The burden of all the social programs is killing our nation, and it isn’t just the illegal’s that is doing it, in many instances it is our own people that have come to understand that they don’t have to work, if they just cry loud enough the socialist’s in power will give to them from the working people that will do their best to take care of them. Well we have reached the point that there isn’t enough people working to pay for them. The free ride is over and that means for the bureaucrats as well as the social freeloaders. We have to tighten our belts and build America back to the strong nation it once was, with strong morals and upright honest citizenry. Stand up for our nation, talk to everyone around you. It isn’t those of us here that need to wake up, most of us are here because we are awake, it is the rest of the country we need to get involved to save our country before it is too late.

    • AJ

      Great point, I also see a lot people taking advantage of the system and receiving benefits that they don’t need. They blame it on illegal immigrants but the truth is that the relatives of the immigrants who once built this country are the ones who are taking advantage of the system.

    • Bigpicture

      I agree that there are those in our country that take advantage of welfare programs, that have been trained like dogs to sit and wait for their treats. Unfortunately for the American people, our jobs have been systematically sent overseas using government created trade tariffs and the like. As the jobs disappeared, our beloved liberals used the welfare system as a trap to lure in the desperate unemployed looking to save their families and homes from the problems created by govt and bankers. Bring back the jobs, re-energize entrepreneurship, cease taxation and let the good people of this country live and spend their money as they see fit in their own pursuit of happiness.

  • Jimmy Bryant

    I have read the law, and it is clearly a representation of the federal law. This Administration is clearly fraudelant and needs to be watched carefully. They are clearly not credible. Lets focus our attention on the Kerry-Leiberman American Power Act. They can change the name but not the content. How did Obama say it, “you cant put lipstick on a pig.” Lets vote these suckers out.

    • gary

      You better get over it or be willing to give a large sacrifice to see that the liberal democrats do not take over the country.

  • skipfoss

    We need to start with the most illegal immagrant of all OVOMIT ,his wife has admitted that he is a Kenian his home country has set up a shrine at his birth place in Kenya according to his sister and the vice president of HIS HOME COUNTRY. The law is nearly a cabon copy of the Fed law the only diffrence is that AZ is going to enforce it unlike our socialist Muslim Jihadist state. The attorney General will not use the words Islamic terrorist because he like his boss is a Muslimand they can be introuble with their Imam .Our so called media is so well controled by the white house that it will only print what is sent for them to print they need to change the media to something like Provda because they are nothing but Government propaganda sheets,that is why they hate Fox so far they have not been a gov lapdog.When you see these demonstrators marching with sigs daring the cops to arrest them they should do just that pick their ass’s up[ check their papers and ship them back home and so they don’t break up the families send them out with them, if their family have legal papers revoke them for breaking they law by hiding a felon.

    Friends and US Citizens !
    I propose a we form a anti-media marketing coalition to beat the corrupt news media at it’s own GAME. Let’s buy a couple of 5 or 10 media Billboards in Washington, DC. The Billboards will be placed in HIGH PROFILE locations where all Legislatures will have to pass and see our GIANT Billboards. Maybe a couple coming from the airport and all other area where the legislatures HAVE to see it on their way to work !! We have plenty of examples to guide the hypocrites to our online videos like this this one between Holder and Poe. Maybe a U-Tube site or such !
    I would be willing to put my remaining dollars into a project like this to HOLD the Legislature and other Government Entente’s accountable for their HYPOCRASEY… In needs to be a IN YOUR FACE kind of TRUTH Assault on their actions.
    We ALL know the President is going to pander to Unions, Illegals and Acorn to get the vote out in November and in the not too far away Presidential Elections.
    So let’s find our leaders now and get them organized and Back them in the re-taking of the American Dream’s WE hold to be self evident that made OUR COUNTRY a WORLD LEADER. I was taught the MAJORIETY RULES ! We are the Majority ! We are still here and while we can let’s pull together the the Right wing and the Center to assault the LEFT.
    Let’s Embarrass the Mainstream media with the truth in their Faces !!
    But first we need a good marketing firm to secure the leases on the WASHINGTON Billboards so they can be HELD By US CITIZENS till after the Presidential Elections.
    Maybe something like this is already in the works… Please advise if you know ! Thanks, Robert Slaughter

      TJ, what do you expect from a PROVEN LOSER who helped BUBBA Clinton FREE Puerto Rican TERRORISTS just before he had to leave the White House? Holder seems like a first-rate example of what is so wrong with the legal profession (I’ll do ANYTHING for MONEY and POWER).
      When you can’t tell the difference between a lawyer and a CRIMINAL [the ACLU, etc.], the system needs to be turned on its diseased head, folks.
      Couple that with an administration that goes out of its way to DESTROY the Constitution, and you don’t need a handful of doctorates to see what’s ahead.
      By the way, WHY did the lamestream, hooker MEDIA never exert any effort in defending HOLDER when he aided and abetted Bubba Clinton by freeing convicted TERRORISTS? Seems more than curious for people who “care” so much about truth and ‘social justice.’

  • Ms. J. M. G.

    Notice comments made by Mr. William E. Hudson, who correctly points out that Mr. Eric Holder, U.S.Attorney General, claims he has not read the Federal Statute and that Holder has not conferred with the panel of commentators who expect to develop a position on the subject of “whether” Arizona State Law regarding immigration is equally constitutional as Federal law regarding the same subject.

    It is useful to point out here that Mr. Holder’s “lack of knowledge”
    regarding whether Arizona law is or is not constitutional, and Holder’s “lack of knowledge” regarding whether “the application” of the Federal law at the (Arizona) State level is appropriate are both very good excuses for stalling for time in order to come up with some peculiar interpretation that will fit Obama’s usual politically
    correct version of American law.

    It is probably the case that Mr. Holder HAS READ both the Arizona State immigration law (recently passed by Arizona) and he HAS READ the appropriate Federal Statutes related to the recent enactment of Arizona immigration law. However, Holder is shrewd enough to claim that he has not yet read the particular Federal statute upon which the Arizona law has been modeled, and which mirrors the Federal statute. By claiming lack of first hand knowledge of the Federal statute, Holder is buying time to allow himself to come up with a future interpretation of the Federal statute that is in line with Obama’s peculiar twist on the Federal law to make it politically correct.

    It is clear that commentator, Mr. Hudson, has a keen appreciation of
    State and Federal law, and his comments are well honed, and his
    tone is civil but incisive. He certainly reveals the absurdity of
    Eric Holder’s failure to have read the appropriate Federal law, and
    Holder’s lack of professional depth in his particular craft, for which
    he was chosen by Obama, supposedly for his “expertise”. Holder
    clearly reveals that he is not prepared at all on this major area
    of Federal law. Holder’s unwillingness to commit himself on these
    area of State and Federal law boxes him into the position of declaring himself professionally unprepared for the task itself of
    explaining this area of law to American citizens. He probably has another trick to play in the near future, so watch his next moves carefully.

    Anyone who contributes commentary to this posting of comments should
    refrain from name calling. There is good vocabulary enough to
    carefully describe the mechanism and the characteristics of Obama’s
    operatives, including Mr. Eric Holder. There is positively no
    glory in resorting to name calling. Suffice it to say that Mr. Holder
    is not performing his job in a professional manner and he is not
    any asset to the Obama administration. The American people are not
    stupid. They realize that their Constitutional liberties are being
    undermined by the Obama Administration. American citizens realize that some of the same Democrats who were screaming bloody blue-
    murder at George Bush for having “compromised Constitutional liberties” as a result of several key sections of the Patriot Act, which allow the Federal government to mine for data in the attempt to find and capture terrorists who would blow up New York City again if they got the opportunity. Interestingly, as a result of columnist Nat Hentoff’s careful study of the Patriot Act (for the purpose of arresting true terrorists), Nat Hentoff has changed his position on the subject of Patriot Act’s going too far on constitutional liberties. Hentoff today does not believe that the Patriot Act went too far. The Patriot Act is a wartime document, intended to address a wartime issue. The Patriot Act is not nearly as radical as Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s suspension of civil liberties of naturalized Japanese-American citizens and American-born Japanese- American citizens by corralling them in interment camps during the Second World War. Roosevelt even corralled Japanese-Americans into race tracks on the West Coast, all in the name of suppressing Japanese ethnic residents, citizens or not. How do you like
    Roosevelt’s quaint concepts which undermined civil liberties?

    The Obama Administration still has a few tricks to foist upon the
    American people in the coming two years before the General Election.
    Be certain that these tricks will be played out. Mr. Eric Holder is
    devious, but crazy like a fox. He has his stealth purposes to carry
    out, in his own time. Obama is also crazy like a fox. Don’t underestimate the two of them. They are a pair.

    In order to counteract these tricks which the Obama Administration
    will certainly play, American citizens need to become even better
    informed, read, study, investigate and share information in order
    that our frail democracy not be further undermined by the likes of
    Obama’s radical organization. There is a old saying that the
    thief always claims that he is being robbed. Obama is doing exactly
    that: he is claiming that Tea Party and and other protesting citizens who disagree with him “are radicals”, whereas Obama is the true radical and he should never hear the end of it, all year every year until that message of his radicalism echoes from coast to coast and from sea to shining sea.

    One more suggestion: if you have friends who have skills in writing
    and editing, submit your unedited writing to such persons who can
    give you important feedback, so that before you publish your comments, you should have some professional feedback, in order to
    make your comments more effective. Just a suggestion. Also, it is
    bad form to resort to name calling. There are plenty of words to
    nail the Obama Administration for the disaster that it has become.

    I welcome your comments and I also encourage Mr. William E. Hudson to comment on subsequent Obama developments. It is refreshing to hear a well reasoned argument.

    Our American Constitution is worth fighting for. Our democracy can
    be eroded if we allow the wrong people to take advantage from
    coast to coast. Talk to your neighbors. Talk to your children.
    Talk to the teenagers who are just beginning to ask questions.
    Make them curious. It is their America too.

    And, as the astronauts said many years ago, “Keep those cards and
    letters coming, folks!” That is still good advice for the
    current climate.

    Where is the League of Women Voters when American citizens need
    non-partisan interviewers to assemble forums for evaluation of
    candidates for political office, Federal, State and local? Once
    there was a vital League of Women Voters. Where is that vitality
    now? Will the League’s vitality come to the surface to counteract the
    deadly grip of the monolithic media that is putting so many
    Americans to sleep, instead of waking them up?

    Ted Poe exposed the incompetent administration in the White House. I am a law enforcement officer that has dealt with the crime associated with illegal immigrants. I have worked the serial murders and rapes committed by some of the illegal immigrants. I have former staff members working the border and seen the pictures of car loads of headless people killed by the drug cartels, decapitating these citizens to send a message. We in law enforcement know the real story. We are in a war in this country with a well funded narco-terroist organizations that has infilterated every section of our country. It is the duty of the office of President to protect the American People from foreign invaders. Neglect of duty is grounds for impeachment. Why is it that we can impeach a president for lying about an affair but can’t impeach a president for refusing to protect America. Somebody please answer that!

      I have been asking myself that question over and over. THe answer: Too many liberal thinkers and too many with no back-bone.

  • Larry C.

    Eric Holder was chosen because he is like the O-Turd, and that means he knows absolutely nothing about what he is saying, and most of the time he speaks out of both sides of his mouth at the same time. He makes me sick. He wants to complain about the law in Arz., but he will not put the thugs in prison that tried to hurt people at the polling place during the last election. Mr. Holder the terrorist best friend outside of Barry-O’ the impostor had got to GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How about looking At Ted Poe for President. He’s an honest man that says what he thinks and beleives. He really is as good as he sounds and a true representative of the U.S. citizens. What a pleasent change that would be from what we have in the White House now. For that matter Ted Poe is a very pleasent change from most of the representatives we have in the Congress or the Senate at this time.

      I am an American born citizen and I would appreciate it if you would not speak for me. I would write a response to your comment but you would never be able to comprehend it unless God performed a miracle in your soul.
      I certainly hope you’re not calling yourself a Christian. From Genesis to Revelation, God speaks against lies and slander that stir up hatred and division. If you can find your Bible, start reading the words of Christ (red letters). Maybe He can help you heal; but the choice is yours.

      • DamnYankee32

        HUH? How can you not see Obama and his cohorts “speak out of both sides of their mouths”? If you CAN”T or WON”T “walk the walk” one should not “talk the talk”. The least they could do is tell the truth or shut up, but then the American people would know their real agenda if they told the truth.

    FlimFlam, your weak attempt at Big Brother, pc censorship doesn’t hold water. This topic deals with Obummer’s #1 ambulance chaser, ‘Let ‘em go’ Holder, and his blatant incompetence.
    Holder is a bureaucrat, not a functional AG. If you can’t stick to the issue, you don’t have to ask for permission to go elsewhere. FYI, what’s the current pay scale for an ‘available, 24/7′ progressive plant?

  • John Wyatt

    How is it these idiots occupy such high government positions? I seriously doubt if Holder can go potty without his assistant telling him what position he should assume. Holder should inforce existing laws rather than file lawsuits against those who do.

    I guess Hussein Obama got all his Godly love from his pastor of 20 years the loveable rev. wright. How about Hussein Obama and his mocking Jesus Christ, its right there on You Tube. Look it up under Hussein Obama mocks Jesus Christ where he twists the bible and the sermon on the mount gto a arrogant, laughing, heathen audience. How about all that christian love from rev. jeremiah wright. 9-11 america’s chickens have come home to roost and not God bless america but GD America is that the kind of christian love you’re looking jammer s.. Next time get your facts straight before you waste everybodys time and space on here pop.

  • Arlene Lennerth

    As far as the illegals go, there is a national law outlawing illegals. Unfortunately it is not being enforced. What you want to do is find our why our government turns a blind eye to the illegal problem. Our government wants the illegals to receive free health care. That’s why you hear 40 thousand people will be added to the
    Obama health care. Our citizens are being taxed to school the illegal children. I’ve read the illegals are receiving Social Security. There is talk of amnesty. Probably in time for the November election to help the Democrat’s. The people have voiced their preference but to deaf ears in Washington. Those representatives ‘of the people, for the people, by the people’, are doing what they wish against the desires of its citizens. When does it end? How will it end? If they get their way with amnesty we won’t even have a say at elections. A concerned citizen.

  • Wayne Hyatt – AZ

    Way to go Congressman Ted Poe!!! Ask the hard questions that need to be asked. It is hard to understand why someone in a position such as Eric Holder would throw out “off the cuff” statements without knowing the facts. Give Holder points for honesty in his response “no, I have not read it.” I loved Congressman Poe’s follow up questions-right to the point. Eric’s boss is not setting a good example either in his ridiculing a state for protecting it’s border, especially when Mr. Obama has failed completely in the area and thus the need for Arizona to tackle the problem. Mr. Obama has done one thing very well and that is to divide this nation and encourage one American against another instead of unite us. Mr. Obama makes jokes about Arizona instead of taking the border problem as a serious threat to our nation and taking positive action to stop the invasion. Mr. Obama has been a huge disappointment to many that put trust in him.

  • http://none suzan Smith

    What a disgusting and outrageous comment – Our Attorney General is totally out of touch with reality or is deliberity subverting his office and should be fired. Why do we the, American people, pay taxes for this man’s services. He clearly is not upholding his office and should be charged with treason along with the other communist in office. How do we begun such a process and who do the American people contact to start the ball rolling in this area?

  • Blackstone

    This is very interesting and if Arizona can do it, why can’t the rest of America ?


    Three cheers for Arizona

    The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora, Mexico doesn’t like it.

    Can you believe the nerve of these people? It’s almost funny.

    The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico .
    Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona’s new employer crackdown on illegal’s from Mexico .

    It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off.
    A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona’s new Employer Sanctions Law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.

    At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, – Arizona’s southern neighbor, – made up of mostly small towns, – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money. The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States .

    Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government.
    “How can Arizona pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales .”
    There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,’ she said, speaking in Spanish.
    “Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their home-towns in Sonora without jobs,” she said. “We are one family, socially and economically,” she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona . Wrong!

    The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico, and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico’s citizens.
    It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs.

    Too bad that the other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona. Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing!

    New Immigration Laws: Read to the bottom or you will miss the message..

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools. * * * * * * * *
    2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language. * * * * * * * *
    3. All government business will be conducted in our language. * * * * * * *

    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here. * * * * * * * *
    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office. * * * * * * * *
    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.
    Any burden will be deported. * * * * * * * *

    his policies. These will lead to deportation. * * * * * * * *
    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted &, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged.
    All assets will be taken from you. * * * * * * * * *

    Too strict? The above laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO !

    These sound fine to me. NOW, how can we get these laws to be America’s Immigration Laws?

    One final issue. Polls show that over 80% of our population supports Arizona’s new laws. Certain Businesses and States want to Boycott Arizona
    because of these new laws. I say, let them do so, but lets get that 80% who agree with Arizona to boycott those states and those businesses. Then we will see who wins this debate.
    If you agree with me, forward this on. If you are in the 20% that do not mind the illegal immigrants committing vast crimes in our Country and taking advantage of our broke Social Security System without paying a dime into it, then you may freely delete this message.

    This is clearly the reason why we need to retake our country back from these thugs. They are opposed to legislation because of their political agenda not because it’s good for the people of the United States. What a farce that he stands against something that he hasn’t even read. The only thing he knows is what his party is telling him to do. This is treason and we should not stand for it.

  • George V

    He hasn’t been briefed as of yet. In other words he hasn’t been told what to say or do about it yet. This is treason already. WAKE up People the criminals that have taken over Washington need to go. They should be hung. They no longer are doing the peoples work. Who is it they are taking their orders from anyway? I don’t know who but it sure isn’t the American people. We must all stand against them at every turn.

  • Blackstone

    I lived on many islands in the Caribbean for years starting companies for multi-national firms.
    Most often I had to dot the I’s and cross the T’s to make sure that when I needed workers- imported from neighboring Central or South America- that these people were completely legal and properly documented. No heated discussion, no excessive handouts needed. All systems worked like a clock.

    If a person was caught on any of the islands with out the necessary documentation- they were hauled off to jail and then deported on the next plane out. There were NO IF AND’S OR BUT’S ABOUT IT ! OUT YOU GO! There can be no order found in anything we do if a government deliberately permits disorder to continue.


    Tell the NWO Puppet masters in Washington ( The Bilderberg Group, The CFR, and The TLC ) that we are PROUD AMERICANS and NOT THIRD CLASS “CITIZENS OF THE WORLD” !

    If we do not get these three groups out of our government… IT MATTERS NOT WHO THE PRESIDENT IS !! The economic failures we see taking place in this country are not by accident. The destruction of America has been a deliberate plan “by the above mentioned groups” as part of the formation of the NAU and the NEW WORLD ORDER objectives.(Like the EU) Illegal immigration is part of that plan.

  • Blackstone

    IF the American people do not throw out these BUM’S that have infested Washington in NOVEMBER, then the OSAMA OBAMA Kool-aid drinking nut jobs deserve all the misery and taxes you can handle. Every thing that is going on in Washington today is nothing more than SMOKE AND MIRROR ILLUSION’S, and DOG AND PONY SHOW’S. The only place the Demoncats want to drill is in your wallet. Its funny how it took so long to even find the big box to put over the leaking pipe to try and stop the oil leak. Hmmmmm, and the fact that so many things were out of order on this rig is also puzzling as well. Especially since they said it was given a passing grade not to long before that extraordinary explosion took place. I smell 9-11 fish some how dont you? Buildings that got hit at the top but fell down from the bottom up…and another nearby that was not even hit. Hmmmmm the building must have fainted and fell down all by it self, amazing isn’t it…. So they can keep drilling in your wallet…. its safer right?
    YES WE CAN, YES WE CAN……. Record those three words forward, and then play them backward and see what you get? THANK YOU SATAN, THANK YOU SATAN ! Through his policy he shall cause craft to prosper…… and shall prosper and practice….. HE shall destroy Wonderfully !! Hmmm , the country is going to hell in a hand basket and we have cheerleaders chanting that stuff ?? You can read about where that came from in Daniel 8:24. ” THE ONE” the anointed one they call him ??
    And I saw Satan fall from the heavens as a bolt of lightning…… In old Hebrew- Satan, hights, lightning = BARAQ O BAM-MAW ! Luke 10:18, Isiah 14: 12-19. (Heights)
    Do you know what the difference between OBAMA and OSAMA is ??
    It’s the BS !!!!

  • ginnymay

    May God help us with such empty, without substance leaders. I call for those who know the Lord to pray with me that these leaders will be brought down by the living God Himself and bring our country leaders who follow the living God first and lead this country with His help. Obama has brought this country to a place where the enemies are laughing at us and our allies are crying – God deliver America please and may everyone see it is by your hand. In Jesus name.

    Arizona needs our support as it stands against lawlessness. California should take another look at itself and find some way to defend the constitution of the original republic created by hard working honest law-abiding people (for the most part). If this California attitude continues it may bring more havoc than we see now in this country. Thanks for the informative article.

  • gary

    Our constitution gives us the right to expel any government that is not working for the people and protecting us.

    Buy all the weapons you can afford and put them where only you can find them. I fear in the very near future we will need them.

    Fema prison camps being built at an alarming rate.

    Nato troups being trained alongside ours for door to door inspections, and confiscation of weapons.

    Russian and Nato equipment being moved into the US and some of it secretly.

    Plus much much more.Get ready and get training if you can, as it is coming.

    The reason our immigration laws are not enforced has nothing to do with human rights, or dignity etc. It has to do with the greed of those who profit by illegal alien slave labor, and those who will profit from the vote of millions of new democrats, if there is a pathway to citizenship.

  • Bruce Williams

    Is this the Attorney General of the United States of America? He has time to listen to or read the comments on the law in question, but has not read the LAW? I’m sure he’s been briefed by someone in his department, you’d think?
    The opposition to the state (AZ) enforcement of Federal Law is nothing but propaganda and Mr. Holder is in a pickle trying to answer “obvious” questions. I do not know Mr. Holder, but he sure looked incompetent vs. important.

  • http://none Dr. Douglas Hopfer PhD

    I do not believe that anyone in Congress, or the administration, has the proper knowledge of powers granted to the government as opposed to powers granted to the states and to the people. If they did they would realize that the states have the right to ignore a Federal law that they feel is unjust. I believe that it is in the 10th and/or the 14th amendment. The Federal government is not allowed to amend the Constitution without the approval of the people.

  • Nancy

    All one needs to do is watch Congress in session and you will find that liberals resort to name-calling, belittling, sarcasm and down right meanless.

    Pelosi claims to be a practicing Catholic but she is certainly not acting like a good Christian in her feeble attempts rewrite the words of Christ and her support of abortion. I heard her try to preach some sort of ‘sermon’ about the ‘word’ and it was so misconstrued I was embarassed for her. For her information: In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God and all that was made was made through the WORD. The WORD came into his own and his own knew him not.

    Somehow Pelosi the Great misconstrued this to mean ‘collective salvation’ which Obama and his tax cheating cohorts are preaching.

    These jokers want to control the world and take from those who are trying to live decent lives to give to those who have been taught that the Government, meaning those who work, owe them a living.

    How about Pelosi and Obama start with the Bible (they both claim to be Christian) ‘they that don’t work don’t eat’.

    As one of the commenters said we should be praying for our Nation. We have strayed so far from truth and our Constitution that without a lot of prayer we are doomed.

    Our freedoms came from God and look at how we have prostituted those freedoms: abortion, pornography, mothers killing, abusing, torturing and abandoning their children. Crime is at a all time high. Nothing is safe unless it is locked down. We cannot allow our children to play outside for fear of being kidnapped, we have to have policemen in our schools. We have young girls killing each other. We have some stupid thing starting with 12 year old called ‘sex with privileges’ which I understand you can have a boyfried/girlfriend sexual relationship but also have sex with others. Our teachers are having relations with their young students.

    We are so afraid of not being ‘politically correct’ we have abandoned our values and absolutely NOTHING has improved in our Nation.
