Obama: Troop Deployment Has Nothing To Do With Immigration Law

June 2, 2010 by  

Obama: Troop deployment has nothing to do with immigration law President Obama said last week that his recent decision to deploy 1,200 National Guard troops to the Mexican border was not a response to Arizona’s controversial immigration law. In fact, the president indicated that the administration began planning the initiative late last year.

Obama also noted that the role of the troops will not be to combat illegal immigration, but rather to assist border guards in their intelligence efforts concerning drug and human trafficking, Fox News reports.

State Department spokesman Philip Crowley reiterated the president’s thoughts, stating that the troop deployment and additional funding are meant to slow the illegal weapons and narcotics trade, and are "not about immigration."

After being asked a question regarding Arizona’s new law, Obama again expressed his concern about the statute, stating that it may create a "patchwork of 50 different immigration laws around the country in an area that is inherently the job of the Federal government."

He said that Republicans only need to meet him "a quarter of the way" to help him push through a comprehensive Federal immigration policy, according to CBS News.

Meanwhile, Senator John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) proposal to increase the number of troops deployed to 6,000 did not garner the 60 votes necessary to be considered by the Senate.

  • David in Ma.

    I do not believe obama in anything, I think he is a habitial liar and is finally being caught up in his lies.

    • rat

      David, you are correct. I think he believes his own lies… saying his administration was on top of the oil spill “from day one”; “we are the most transparent administration”; Obamacare will not “include illegal immigrants” or “will not pay for abortions”. The list goes on.

      • marvin

        rat liberals don,t think like normal ever day people they have had there hand out and lied so much they believe ever thing they say,the liberal mind is a terrible thing to waste[but it is]

        Of course ont Rat. He’s going to make them all “Legal”

    • Sidewinder

      Well Bob Livingston, I just received the June edition of the Bob Livingston Letter, and I must say its right on target.

      Again, you correctly point to the hope of third party’s in changing our nation, and underscore the need to stay peaceful, no matter how frustrated people get. Again, I say violence will only play into the hands of those who oppose real change.

      And I want to thank you too for covering in your section called” THE EVIDENCE, in pointing out that the evidence is overwhelming that 911 was in fact an inside job.

      I myself have read everything I can get my hands on, and have concluded that the evidence weighs in favor of the “Inside Job” theory much more heavily than it does in the government’s “Official Conspiracy” involving rouge elements of the Muslim Fundamentalist movement.
      And I thank you Bob for bringing this out. The more we begin talking about it, and shed our fear of the subject, the closer we can come to the truth.

      I do believe 911 was a “Magic Shot” that solved many problems for the Bush administration. A single strategic shot that accomplished many things, and got rid of many problems. It got us into Iraq, it increased Federal Power over all Americans, it got rid of the Enron Evidence located in Building Seven. It even got rid of the asbestos problem in the towers. And much more I am sure.

      If you dare Bob…keep banging away at this. 911, more importantly Building Seven is the lynch pin in which this whole thing can come unraveled.

      We have so many anti terror laws on the books now. If this could ever be proven, this most powerful weapon, the USA Patriot Act, could possibly be turned on the government itself. Its like a cannon….

      If any of you readers do not yet subscribe to the Bob Livingston Letter, I can say its well worth the modest price. I have never been disappointed.

      • Sidewinder

        http://rediscover911.com/

        Good link Bob, from the Bob Livingston Letter!
        They kept saying 911 went off with military persicion, well now we know why.

        I have long held that 911 was possibly a joint operation between the Mossad and US Black Ops. Al Queda was nothing more than window dressing, a boogie man, for the public to identify with. Al Queda may have played some role, and I hold that Al Queda ranking officers are CIA assets.

        911 was actually very sloppy. Theres evidence spilling out everywhere. Anyone still buying the governments story, hasn’t been looking.

        Zionism = Rothchilds.

        Zionism does not equal Jews.

        Mossad = Rothchilds

        Federal Reserve Bank = Rothchilds.

        State of Israel = Rothchilds.

        Zionism is a political philosophy, not a racial philosophy.

        Joe Biden is an admitted Zionist.

        How many of the Bush inner circle were Zionists?

        Call it whatever name you like….

        But 911 advanced the global agenda.

    Why would obama want to put down the infestation of Illegal mexicans, He his self is illegal. Obama has a soft spot for illegals.

  • http://Checkout Connie

    I hope the Republicans do NOT meet Obama a quarter of the way to “push through comprehesive Federal immigration laws.” (notice the choice of the word PUSH) That phrase is code for AMNESTY TO LAW BREAKERS. We saw how they treated the police in Phoenix–throwing bottles at them, etc. That’s all America needs is more hostile people with an “entitlement mentality.”

  • CJ

    The simple answer it to remove what attracts them here. Stop giving entitlements to people who can’t prove they have earned them. If there is no benefit, they don’t come.

    • Mike H

      Obama would not get their vote.

      • eddie47d

        Even if we have Amnesty and Obama serves another term he would be out of office before they could vote for him. So what’s your point snideman?

    • marvin

      CJ you are part right but the 14th addmen allow the young whores to play the system with so called birth right citizen ship that the 14th was and is for children of the black slaves that were forced to come here not a illegal whore from mexico here illegally, tell we get this stopped they will keep having 5 to 6 kid at your expence

    This Muslim cares absolutly nothing about this country. He is a socialist…a liar…a cheat, and a criminal.
    I was not around for FDR but this muslim, I fear, is even worse. Even the lefties are starting to turn away from this Alinski teaching socialist.
    Wake up America and remember to VOTE this November! Before it’s too late!

      • AZlady

        This President is sending 1200 troops down to the border to do paperwork. We need at least 3 times that many. He was forced to do something albeit very little due to our courageous Governer Brewer. He must think a token will make us safer and compliant. No way. This man with his promises before election has let us all down. Trans-parency? Change? (obviously we thought change for the better not the worst) No more politics as usual? It’s worse than usual. I do believe this man is in over his head and above his pay grade.

    WHO AM I?

    I was born in one country, raised in another.   My father was born in another country. I was not his only child.  He fathered several children with numerous women.

    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.  My mother died at an early age from cancer.  Later in life, questions arose over my real name. 

    My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate. I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs & didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.  

    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.  That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career.  

    I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.  It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.  I became active in local politics in my 30′s then with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s. They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.  That reinforced my conceit. I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.  Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks. I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

    At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy.  I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunityto bash my country.  But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy.  

    I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better and every poor person would be fed & housed for free.  I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess. It was the free market, banks & corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them and if they were envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.  I called mine “A People’s Campaign” and that sounded good to all people. I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics & was able to gain widespread popular support. I knew that if I merely offered the people ‘hope,’ together we could change our country and the world.

    So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the down-trodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities” like the Jews. My true views were not widely known and I needed to keep them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader. I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with.  I’m glad they didn’t.  Then I became the most powerful man in the world.  And the world learned the truth.

    Who am I?

    I am ADOLF HITLER

    WHO WERE YOU THINKING OF?

    Scary isn’t it?

    So if illegal immigration is the federal govt. job why aren’t the laws enforced instead of all this double speak? could there be another motive ?

    OHitler is a clasic case of someone who has a normal intelligence, but has NO conscience. He has been groomed for this opportunity to destroy America from within. Those who can’t see that put their family, themselves and America in peril.
    Oflimflam is not interested in securing our borders. What more PROOF do you need?
    OStalin acts like a hostile foreign leader in the White House. HOW can anyone still be in doubt?
    This OMao’s chance to go to the border, carry a shotgun and show America that he cares. But, he doesn’t care. His job is to do what an invading army can’t.
    How many of those 1,200 soldiers will patrol the border? Will ANY of them patrol the border? America, we have an enemy in the White House. If he does what he wants to do, we might as well surrender. What can you live with, America? Will you surrender to a useful idiot who will not protect America?
    A man who divides in the name of ‘unity’ is NOT to be trusted – EVER. Think, America. React, America.

    • Save America Susie

      S C, True words…Last night as I was listening to the news of BO’s bumbling of the latest events, I couldn’t help but think his REAL PURPOSE is destroying America, as you say. I have thought that for a long time. With his telephone call to the Turkish Government to extend condolences after that Israeli flotilla event–and they were the attackers! BO often does that. He judges and acts more quickly than he should without knowing all the facts. Or maybe he knew he was wrong & did it anyway? I asked myself: wait a minute, Israel was delivering HUMANITARIAN supplies–as it does on an on-going basis! They were coming in to inspect things, and the FULL video clearly shows they were attacked 1st, not the other way around. Israel has been our long standing ALLY! But now they are the bad guy? They were just DEFENDING themselves. Makes me so frustrated when the left-leaning news media distorts the news to fit their purposes, and shows Israel in a bad light. But they only showed PART of the video clip. They actually RE-CREATED the news to be something other than it was. Obama is making Israel our enemy now, by favoring her enemies. The Israel Leader was planning a trip over here, and then canceled because of BO’s bumble. Israel is getting a bad REP, and its all because of the left-leaning news. Obama has flipped to “the other side”.

      …Anyone has a right to DEFEND themselves.

      • libertytrain

        I find it frightening for the Jewish people and/or Israel – they must be feeling fear that it’s going to be done to them again. I cannot believe so many have no feelings for what Hitler did to them — and he was the more recent to attempt to annihilate them.

        • Save America Susie

          LT–Unfortunately, Israel’s enemies are raised on hatred, and even their children are TAUGHT to hate. They are taught on their mother’s knee that it is their duty to destroy Israel one day. They live for it, and they live for hatred. 10 years olds and often younger are trained in the art of war. They never had a real childhood as we know it. Never allowed to be children. Israel is only defending herself, so it is evil that drives her enemies.

          It is as if the enemies of Israel were at one time children left to fend for themselves, when the adults died. And no one ever taught them right from wrong, or showed them how to love.

          I hope the next President will reinstate the bond that has been broken & thrown away here by this current President. That Israel will again be our Ally. I think the Jewish community is starting to wake up and see what has happen while they slept.

          • libertytrain

            The Jewish community (in this Country) has been aware for the last several years and that has knocked them out of their comfort zone. It’s not their enemies in the Arab nations I am referring to – it’s the young people and extreme left in this country that have shocked me in their attitude toward the Jews and/or Israel.

      • http://comcast HCPilot

        I’ve always been a supporter of Israel yet I’m always surprised when I see the Jews support liberals like Obama who don’t support Israel.

        • libertytrain

          I have found that confusing as well.

  • Save America Susie

    I think that when BO said that NO ILLEGALS would be eligible for Health Care under the new HC Bill plan, he was telling the truth in his “twisted way”. But it was a TRICK! He will first make them legal by way of AMNESTY and then his words will be true AFTER the fact. Pretty sneaky! That is why AMNESTY should not be allowed to happen!! It didn’t work when Reagan did it either. Can’t people see that? I liked Reagan a lot, but that was Reagan’s blind spot. AMNESTY doesn’t work because illegals never want to assimilate into our culture. It’s like letting a spoiled child have his way after you have told him to sit in the corner.

    OF BEES AND OBAMA

    In Africa there are two very species of bees. One species we are all familiar with is the African bee, known here in the USA as the “Killer Bee”. The other, less well known, is the “cape” bee.
    Both are honey producers and beekeepers in Africa tend both species and harvest their honey much the same way beekeepers do around the world. They wear protective clothing and fog the hives with smoke to dull the bee’s senses before harvesting the honey.
    The African bee has a more aggressive nature than the Cape bee and it might be expected the Killer bees would eliminate the cape bees if they were introduced into an African beehive.
    Or, as Beekeepers hoped, the two species would interbreed and produce a “hybrid bee” capable of producing more honey. Even thought these breeds claimed different land areas and had maintained their separation for years, the beekeepers forged ahead with the experiment and in-fused an African colony with the Cape bees with disastrous results, causing the loss of thousands of hives.
    The Cape bees were viscously attacked in masses but the real disaster occurred with those few cape bees that did manage to survive and enter the killer bee’s domain.
    Inside the hive something weirdly magical happened!

    We all know a hive is made up of mostly female worker bees, a Queen bee and a few drones (Males).
    The workers bees do all the work tending the to the needs of the hive including the new born and eggs, while the Queen bee eats and lays eggs all day. The drones, well they are just males.
    However, these few Cape bees were able to trick the Killer worker bees into treating the female cape bees as individual queens! And, the Cape bees began to lay unfertilized eggs while the worker bees fed the pseudo Queen bees and tended their eggs. When the Cape bee’s eggs hatched the infant bees were exact clones of the mother Cape bee, except they were larger!
    The deceit played on the Killer bees caused the workers to feed the Cape bees excessively while neglecting their own Queen’s Killer bees eggs.
    Being clones, these Cape hatchlings were also treated as queens and proceeded to lay eggs.
    The disaster manifested itself when the number of clones, much like entitlement programs today, exceeded the ability of the workers to feed the clones and the hive died!
    As the beekeepers meddled in the affairs of the bees causing the demise of their hives, so it is with Obama’s socialistic policies!
    America is a beehive of activity with individuals and businesses competing day by day to produce a more secure way of life using capitalism as the engine to drive its economy. Entreprenures and visionaries who take risks and put forth the effort not only reap the rewards but also provide employment for others who then share in the American dream.
    That is, until Obama decided to initiate policies to “share the wealth” and limit freedom choices through a pork laden stimulus bill, a universal Government mandated health bill and most recently taking over the student loan program!
    Not only has the stimulus program not created millions of jobs as was promised but the unemployment rate still hangs around 10 %. The only jobs created were government jobs to administer these programs-some stimulus!
    The health care bill is supposed to reduce health care for all Americans and include some 30 million who cannot afford health care insurance (Here come the entitlements) and you can keep your present health care program if you want! However, large Corporations such as John Deere are required to file projections to report how legislation affects their operations -i.e., the bottom line!
    These corporations reported current health care benefits as near $20,000 per employee and reasoned they (the company) could save about $18,000 per employee by dropping their health care and paying a fine of $2,000 per employee-more government control!
    The student loan program whereby the government loans monies to prospective students effectively eliminate banks, which, have a vested interest to have these loans, repaid. So, how will the government assure the American public these loans (our money) will be repaid?
    Maybe collection agencies or more likely have the IRS collect delinquent finds by holding back tax refunds or attaching wages. But how about this: instead of treating these loans as delinquencies the government mandates the recipient be forced to work off the debt in some forbidden place where the government needs to have personnel but no one wants to go- isn’t this slavery?
    The net result of these kinds of legislation has already begun its suffocating effect on capitalism and enterprise by removing individual freedoms.
    And, without these freedoms, the American beehive dies!
    So, we as bees in this American beehive need to be alert to the dulling effect of the smoke blown our way by the nation’s beekeepers. Instead of half-truths,
    Mis- speaks (lying to most of us) or golden oratory with no substance, we need beekeepers who use the tools of a democracy to produce the honey of freedom-truth, honesty and spinal fortitude!

      I’m still struggling to get over the previous two terms of failure and incompetence from George W. Bush. President Obama has moved too far to the center for my liking but I like what he’s done so far. He still has a long way to go in undoing the damage done by his predecessor but health care reform was a good start. Are you guys also ‘birthers’?

      • s c

        Utterly Lost, first (like all progressives) you outed yourself by mentioning Bush (do you think he’s still in the White House?). Second, if you
        think Obummer is ‘too far to the center,’ you never learned what center means. Third, your diatribe proves that your programming is complete (completely lame). Fourth, ‘Lost’ isn’t that far from ‘loser,’ so you might as well change your handle now and avoid the rush as your gangster icons in Washington flush themselves down the toilet. Enjoy the circus.

        Here again we have someone fully and completely indoctrinated into left and right polarization. Blame the Republicans is the mantra.
        Sadly there are too many that are just as myopic and don’t recognize that our problems aren’t red or blue…they are systemic and that start at the front doors of the Federal Reserve. That’s who’s running the country (into the ground) and that’s who owns our (sort of)elected officials.
        This country needs to retun to a Constitutional Republic as both parties are corrupt and sick beyond recovery.

    NEVER-BEFORE-REVEALED TERRORIST TRAINING VIDEO EXPOSES 35 COMPOUNDS ON AMERICAN SOIL
    “Act like you are his friend. Then kill him.” – Sheik Muburak Gilani explaining how to kill American infidels

    Washington, DC-Christian Action Network will show Homegrown Jihad at the Landmark Theater in Washington, DC, on February 11, 2009, at 7:30 pm. There is no charge to attend the viewing. Copies can also be obtained at http://www.christianaction.org.

    The American public was never supposed to know. The 2006 Justice Department document that exposes 35 terrorist training compounds in the U.S. was marked “Dissemination Restricted to Law Enforcement.” All the copies of Sheik Muburak Gilani’s terrorist training video, “Soldiers of Allah,” had been confiscated and sealed-all of them, that is, except one-that Christian Action Network now reveals in the documentary Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.

    It seems unfathomable-nearly three dozen terrorist training compounds in the U.S. and the FBI, Homeland Security, and State Department are no help at all? But the evidence is irrefutable: as Jamaat ul-Fuqra (known in the U.S. as Muslims of America) leader Sheik Muburak Gilani professes on the Soldiers of Allah video, “We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.”

    The Soldiers of Allah training video teaches American students how to operate AK-47 rifles, rocket launchers, and machine guns; how to kidnap Americans and then kill them; how to conduct sabotage and subversive operations; and how to use mortars and explosives.

    With almost 50 terrorist attacks on American soil linked to Jamaat ul-Fuqra-ranging from bombings to murder to plots to blowing up American landmarks-what will it take for the government to protect its citizens from self-professed enemies of Americans? They hide across 35 American cities as innocuous-sounding as Hancock, NY; Red House, VA; and Seattle, WA.

    The allegations are serious, which is why Christian Action Network took more than two years to research Muslims of America-going inside the compounds with their video cameras and questions to confront violence and confirm the truth. Their mission? To make Americans aware of the threats and have Jamaat ul-Fuqra placed on the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization Watch List, thereby shutting down the camps in the U.S. run by ul-Fuqra’s front group, Muslims of America.

    The State Department issued a statement on January 31, 2002, regarding why the group was no longer recognized as a terrorist organization: “Jamaat ul-Fuqra has never been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. It was included in several recent annual terrorism reports under ‘other terrorist groups,’ i.e., groups that had carried out acts of terrorism but that were not formally designated by the Secretary of State. However, because of the group’s inactivity during 2000, it was not included in the most recent terrorism report covering that calendar year.”

    The effect of being removed from terrorist reports? In January 2002 Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and later beheaded while attempting to attend an interview with Jamaat ul-Fuqra leader Sheikh Mubarak Gilani.

    Was this an isolated incident? Hardly. In March 2003, Fuqra and al Qaeda member Iyman Faris pled guilty in federal court to a plot to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge, and the list goes on.

    According to a 2006 Department of Justice report, “Today, Jamaat ul-Fuqra has more than 35 suspected communes and more than 3,000 members spread across the United States, all in support of one goal: the purification of Islam through violence.”

    In 2005, The Department of Homeland Security predicted that Muslims of America will continue to strike in the United States-yet they are still not listed on the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization Watch List. “Other predicted possible sponsors of attacks include Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani-based group that has been linked to Muslims of America.”

    What we are witnessing here is kind of a brand-new form of terrorism. These home-grown terrorists can prove to be as dangerous as any known group, if not more so.

    -Special Agent Jody Weis, FBI

    We must also work to protect our country against the next attack-terrorism spawned right here among us.

    -Senator Joseph Lieberman

    These home-grown terrorists may prove to be as dangerous as groups like al Qaeda, if not more so.

  • angel-wanna-be

    The troops Obama Deployed to the Arizona border??__In his arrogance, he threw Jan Brewer a bone, no meat, just a bone. Obama doesn’t give a damn about immigration. If he screws with it too much, he’ll lose all his grateful sheep voters. 2012 cannot get here soon enough!!!

  • Charlie

    One more time I get it. Obama is making this race not illegal.Obama has blasted Arizona’s immigration law, which takes effect July 29, and warned that it could violate civil rights and lead to racial profiling.
    The White House has indicated that it’s prepared to go to court if necessary in a bid to block the new law.
    Here are some interesting statistics. Why does deportation seem like such a difficult solution? It has been done before successfully.
    Illegals can be deported Other Predisents have done it Why not the Now president Or would he have to become the Captain of the ship Guess Deportation is not a word to come from all mouths.
    Apparently, a lot of Americans don’t know this, and it should be passed around.
    Three Presidents did it, yet we never hear about it?
    I FOUND THIS TO BE VERY INTERESTING. I WONDER WHY IT WAS NEVER BROUGHT UP.

    What did Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?
    Here is something that should be of great interest for all.I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.
    Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American ,citizens that desperately needed work..
    Harry Truman deported over two million Illegal’s after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.
    And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals! The program was called ‘Operation Wetback’. It was
    done so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance at jobs.
    It took 2 Years, but they deported them!
    Now… if they could deport the illegal’s back then – they could sure do it today.
    lf you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation
    Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.
    Reminder:
    Don’t forget to pay your taxes…
    12 million Illegal Aliens are depending on you!
    Yes it would be a violation of AMERICAN civil rights, however, this is targeting people that are here illegally. Thus breaking the law. As for the county supervisors, perhaps they should worry about Los Angeles County, not Arizona. Ca tax payers are paying off to much to illegal and welfare and etc.. And now the HC coverage ? Head lines on new today talks about San Diego borders and a boat of drugs and illegals now caught All borders need protection and I am disapointed that the Ameicans safety and protection are not the Number one priority. We Americans are United and we will not allow control, abuse and distroying our hard fought for rights and country. Thank You

    • Meteorlady

      Our illustrious Attorney General blasted the law before he even read it. When asked he said he hadn’t had time yet. Now he’s really quiet wonder why? Maybe because it’s just a mirror of the Federal law?

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Meteorlady,
        Maybe he just finally got a chance to read it!!! don’t worry, he knows what a dim bulb he is!!!

  • Marilyn

    I’ve noticed that not one blog mentioned why the fed. gov. has not even tried to inforce the illegal immigrant law. In case you didn’t know in mid. 2008 they hired 600 illegal aliens themselves. Heaven forbid they should give an American the jobs. As of Jan. of this year the airlines hired a large number of non english speaking illegals to train as airline machanics, that should make you feel safe next time you fly. I suppose that was a job Americans also didn’t want. With the wars outside our country(for the time being) the terror cells inside our country and the ongoing crimes of the illegal aliens, not to mention the failure of our economy Whats there to worry about?

  • tracycolorado

    The piece of work is right , the deployment of the guard , has nothing to do with the immingration law , it is all political , nothing more . His admininstration has already stated , that they wont enforce the law . BREAKING THE LAW IS BREAKING THE LAW , AND CRIMINALS ARE CRIMINALS . and what do you expect from CRIMINALS ?

  • Rich

    isnt the Az new law the same as federal immigration law, but gives local and state police the power to do what the feds wont?????????? but ohh wait thats right the pres, congresss, and senate dont read the bills they sign into law so they wouldnt know what the laws already on the books would even say and they complain about Az enforcing a federal law hmmm…

  • Marilyn

    Hi Charlie, I brought-up the subject of those deportations many times before. Thanks for reminding the Americans again. We need the reminders. But there is one more that has not been mentioned. During the seventies 10,000,000 yes I mean ten million Mexicans were deported, yet most of our policians say “we can’t very well deport all twelve mil. of them. Why not? Have not improved in our abilities since the seventies?

    • Meteorlady

      Three separate presidents have deported illegals. All to get the Americans their jobs back and economy going again. Eisenhower was the last and he deported 8 million illegals in just two years.

      The worst was 1986 when we gave amnesty to some 2.4 million of them. Even though there were rules for applying 85% of the illegals that gained legal status obtained it through fraud. There were not enough people to investigate claims. After that some 1 million more were admitted because they were family. 10 years later they were costing the American taxpayer some $18 to 25 million per year (in 1986 dollars) in social services, medical and other poverty related programs. Most did not speak English and their children were not taking advantage of their educational benefits.

      In 1986 all the same arguments they are using today for amnesty were used. Then Carter came along and opened up social programs and SS disability to them and boy did they take advantage of those benefits. All the talk about taxpaying members of society, all the talk about bettering themselves through education, all that turned out to be not true and we are still paying for those people and their family members and their children. Now we are paying for illegals also and we can’t keep paying and paying and paying and further putting this country into debt.

  • Meteorlady

    Amazing – I live in Texas and Perry has asked on four separate occasions for border guards to stop the flow. Nothing, nada, not even an answer back. Even though El Paso is a war zone and the rest of the border towns are getting as bad.

    Now Arizona show some guts and passes a law that gets national attention and he’s going to sent troops. WOW and it’s just to stop arms and drug smuggling and human trafficking. Never mind that 17,500 illegals from known terrorist countries slipped through our southern border in just one year and none have been apprehended.

  • a sceptic

    Wow. Guys, it’s really hard to stomach all this stupidity.

    Let’s look at reality and stop mixing the drug trade and possible enemy infiltration with the immigrants who have come to America, often at great personal risk, to make it their home.

    What do you really know about Mexican immigrants? It would serve you well to check out the opinions of their employers in the construction trades or hospitality industry or agriculture. You’d find that there is nothing but admiration for their work ethic and their willingness to sacrifice for family. Indeed, Bush himself allowed many young immigrant men to legalize their status by signing up for the U.S. Army… and many have served this country – their adopted country – with honor and valantry.

    Almost without exception those who come in illegally are seeking what our own forefathers were seeking: better economic opportunity. They work hard at hard jobs – something that white trash and inner city blacks are simply too lazy to do – and they have a tremendous respect for education, for bettering themselves and gaining real competencies – something that middle class American youth seem incapable of managing. (Probably has something to do with the alcohol saturated frat parties and drug-filled lives, including Ritalin and other anti-anxiety pills.)

    You’d be surprised just how high their belief is in the capitalist system. Many of them have left Mexico because of their disenchantment at a system that only lets “the party faithful” get ahead.

    But you shit on them and alienate them, deny them opportunity and turn them bitter and resentful. You arrest them on the street, deport them and leave their children abandoned without word of where their parents are. And then you invent or exagerate statistics and take the Holier-than-Thou stance of criticizing some of them for falling into gang life.

    Frankly, I don’t think you deserve them as fellow citizens. They hold real ethical values, something that you in your FOX-TV, mass propaganda, drug-induced mental fog no longer understand.

    • JeffH

      a sceptic, what do you know about illegal immigants? Did you even suspect that not all of the illegal immigrants aren’t of latin decent? Were you aware that even Arabs have been reported crossing the Arizona border for an unknown period? Were you aware that Illegals hauling marijuana in Arizona use AK 47 assault rifles to shoot Deputy Sheriff? Were you aware that Arabs learn Spanish before paying smugglers to sneak in Arab Illegals across the US borders?

    • Al Sieber

      Where the hell did you grow up? if I could, I’d invite you to spend a weekend on the border.

    • Save America Susie

      Sceptic….It is NOT immigrants we are against. Legal immigrants are WELCOME! No matter if they are Mexican or Canadian or Lebanese. its ILLEGAL immigrants we are talking about. BIG Difference! Many have committed serious crimes in addition to breaking the law of illegal entry. Illegals have broken the law. My grandparents were immigrants, but they did it the right way with proper papers. They desired to be Americans and accept our cultural values. That is all we ask.

    you don’t get respect by breaking the law. i knew a lot of legal immigrants who came here the right way and i can vouch for most as hard working and a dedication to the u.s. most of the illegals coming across our southern border are coming here for one thing,”welfare” and unfortunately receive it. they have no allegiance to the u.s. and want to establish their culture here. you say they are disenchanted with their home country politics! i say they caused their own problem
    by voting for the socialist type governmment they supported.
    you are a hypocrite.
    frankly, i think you have been listening to abc, msnbc, cnn, try listening to fox. they support the law not illegal immigration. maybe your smoking too much of that stuff you carried across the border.

    • Al Sieber

      I agree, good point.

  • Charley41

    Gee’s Sceptic…Whats your problem?? All we say is fine come in legal. we welcome you..come in the front door. Open borders? Terrorists do come across. shut it down..!!

  • Robert

    Obama IS addressing the illegal immigration problem. And I also believe in the Easter Bunny,the Tooth Fairy and the 2 plus million jobs that the stimulus bill created. Now if I could just get a job after 17 months of being unemployed I would support this Presidential liar. And by the way, George Bush and Dick Cheney are responsible for the Oil leak disaster in the Gulf. So says this President and his band of intellectual morons.

  • AZ Phil

    When the Guard is deployed to do desk jobs, that is not an honest effort to address a crisis created by the Federal Government. Obama has opted to circumvent the laws of the land based on his personal bias, just think how it would be if everyone followed that example!

    McCain is no better, since he is Pro-Amnesty while trying to make it look as if he is not for political reasons. His nickname in AZ is Senator Lettuce, because of his COMPREHENSIVE REFORM stance that he even said he would pay people to pick lettuce, since no one would take the jobs at that rate except illegals, then he snubbed the lines of people that were at his office looking for what he promised.

    We need to get rid of the professional political hacks in Washington, and go back to the time when it was considered a duty to serve and after their term they would return to their personal careers and families.

  • jai

    Obama sent the troops to distribute warm fuzzies to illegals. And he promised the Arizonans they can arrest whoever they want, he won’t prosecute them or deport them.

    And his performance with the oil spill is horrible. He’s done nothing but blame BP because it’s a big corporation. Hey, they are. Their job is to make money for their investors. Obama’s job is to protect Americans and our soil. Blaming BP is such and obvious silliness, it’s getting him nowhere, but it’s not his job to place guilt. That’s the job of the Judicial system and there’s plenty of time for that later. Right now HE better get busy figuring how to protect our shores.

    He has sent only a few Coast Guard vessels and he says the military doesn’t have the capacity to help, but soon after the spill, a Naval Commander whose name I forget, offered to send some more efficient mini subs and Obama ignored him. Except for himself and his cabinet, Obama has the best and the brightest at his disposal. Where is the military?

    This is not his Katrina. It’s his waterloo. Because he obviously lied about his citizenship, he should be arrested and jailed for fraud. He does not deserve impeachment because he was never duly elected. He should be in prison with Madoff. He has defrauded the Amerian public of more money than Madoff could even have imagined.

    JAIL THE LIAR IN CHIEF!!

    I applaud you JC, it has nothing to do with Democrat or Republican. It’s time to start choosing who we want which I believe means we need to dump both parties. Both sides are crooks, bought and paid for.

  • Tuner

    Anyone who can’t get past “I’m a Republican or I’m a Democrat” Is part of the problem. I can’t see where either side has done much for us. If they were working for us they would stop giving companies tax breaks to move out of the country and start guarding our boarders. They are the ones who have done the damage, not the people.

  • jr bob

    I suggest that all of you who are complaining of illegals and welfare and wars that are not declared is for all of you to get together and form a constitutionalist party and run true constitutionalists and I believe you will have some success to start with and them build a stronger party and by that time we will have enough success to really retake america and make our founding fathers proud. let us get with it. we want the right stuff it will be a struggle but we can win.
