Schumer Asks Arizona To Give Congress Time To Create Federal Immigration Law

May 11, 2010 by  

Schumer asks Arizona to give Congress time to create federal immigration law In an effort to quell the political storm surrounding immigration reform in Arizona, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) sent a letter to Governor Jan Brewer last week, asking her to delay the implementation of the new law for one year so that Congress can put together an all-encompassing Federal plan.

In the letter, Schumer commended the governor for taking action to address the nation’s "broken immigration system," but also said that he opposes the legislation "because it is wrong-hearted and is likely unconstitutional, but also because it will almost certainly fail to reduce illegal immigration into Arizona," according to Fox News.

Brewer has yet to respond to the senator, who is currently the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Refugees.

Meanwhile, President Obama last week reaffirmed his commitment to Federal immigration reform, asking Republicans and Democrats to work together to create a bill by the end of the year.

His remarks, delivered at a Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House, contrast with some earlier comments that he made regarding immigration reform. Obama told reporters that "there may not be an appetite" in Congress for pushing through another bill by the end of the legislative year.

  • Jim H.

    The Feds have had 230 years to get it right how much more time should we give them?

    • JC

      We should give them no more time. The answer from the Governor of Arizona’s office should be “NO”, no more Federal BS.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        JC,
        We need to Email her and tell her we support her and to tell the feds to take a hike!!!

      • LMW

        And for a whole lot more legal residents of Az to be killed by the Drug Cartels that cross their lands, steal their trucks and half bury their bodies……..The Feds had their chance – now its time for the States to exercise their right to protect their citizens when the Feds fail to do so……..

    • stovebolt

      They already have the laws on the books. All they have to do is enforce what is there. This is a Ted Kennedy trick, just keep making up more laws to stall the process of actually enforcing the laws we have. Time to send Schumer packing.

      • http://YAHOO Idaho R,WINGER

        I hope by this November’s mid-term Election we will send all of those that are up for re-election in the Senate and House, Career Politition’s, PACKING…..!!!!!!
        And I hope that they Clean out their offices real good and not leave them a mess like it is now for the good guy’s.

    • CJ

      Maybe Brewer should take some of the funds “lost” on illegals and give them a free bus ticket to Schumer’s district. Then see how he feels.

    • http://eachstateretaliate.blogspot.com/ Tea Party Tim

      This is one of those that voted “Yes” on health care reform.

      Why? We can’t wait any longer. We can’t wait long enough to read it. We can’t wait long enough to make sure that it is good legislation. We can’t even wait long enough for the writing of the legislation to be completed before we pass it.

      Guess, what Senator. Some of us can’t wait until election time to vote some of you guys out of office.

      • Tori

        you forgot one..Also, if you squeeze out a new precious infant on our side of the fence, we are ALL responsible for our newest little citizen!!!HOORAY!!! The first thing on the ‘immigration reform’ agenda should be to do away with the so-called anchor baby law…Some how, we are one of the only, if not THE ONLY Nation in the world who does this stupid thing…and that’s the sad, sad sob story behind “breaking up” these “families” to deport the ILLEGALS back to their respective countries…I don’t care where they’re from…If you are not a citizen your brat isn’t either!!!!!!Put the entire ILLEGAL CLAN on the next bus, train, plane etc…and send them home, NOW. Thanks, GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF LEGAL AMERICANS!!!

  • tubamom

    Since the Federal Government won’t do anything, it is up to the states to protect their citizens. AZ Governor needs to politely give Schumer the finger.

  • obiwan

    Arizona would be smart to implement it’s laws until the feds start enforcing theirs. Don’t back down.

    • Airangel

      We all need to keep writing Jan Brewer’s office telling her we stand with her…she is getting so much pressure, I’m afraid she’ll cave in…tell her NOT to back down! http://www.janbrewer.com

      • http://fightbackonline.blogspot.com MrExnavy

        Thanks for the link to Jan Brewer’s site Airangel. I went there and wrote her a message. Here is what I wrote:

        Greetings Jan.

        I was born in Phoenix and although I do not live there now, I am wholeheartedly behind you on the 1070 bill and forcing the feds to do their job and secure our border.

        Do not back down and as for Schumer and his request to give them time to craft more laws, he can get screwed. The feds have had many years to enforce our existing laws and they have refused to do it. This is nothing more than a ploy. We don’t need more federal laws. We need them to enforce the immigration laws we already have. Believe me, many of us know that the bill 1070 does not say or do anything that our own federal law does not already say and is designed to mirror our immigration laws that we already have.

        My ex-wife is mexican, my youngest son was born in Mexico and we lived there for 2 years before finally getting all the paperwork done so my ex-wife could legally come to the US plus all the paperwork I had to go through to get my son declared a US citizen born abroad. It is a slap in my face what our government has done and continues to do to it’s own citizens everyday. It is going to get to the point where normally law abiding citizens will no longer put up with what is being done to us and take things into our own hands and take up arms either against people crossing the border illegally or against our own government or both.

        The country was founded on revolution and just because it is the 21st century and not the 1700′s does not mean it cannot happen again. There are many people that are ready to defend our borders and our constituion. This does not make them some fringe group as many would have so many believe. This sentiment is festering in our country and if our government does not stop what they are doing and get back to doing what the constituion says and defend it, and start listening to the people, people WILL rise up again to get our freedoms back and maintain the American way of life.

        I and many others support you and stand beside you in your fight to protect our borders. Do not lose faith and don’t give in.

        God Bless.

      • MichelleO

        I just did!!!!! and told her to tell Chucky Schumer to go to Hell and take the Obama Administraiton with him.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          MichelleO,
          I just sent her another one and told her to tell the feds to take a hike, that if she gave in to them they would never do anything to stop the flood tide coming into our nation!

    • Ellen

      I SO AGREE!! WE need to stop all this cheap, “O let us wait awhile. NO OTHER COUNTRY IS SO STUPIDLY DUMB. Washington D.C. has already proved, THEY do not have gutts enough to make a decision for USA! They are playing gods to everyone else, WITH OUR MONEY! I am so disgusted with these morons, A Lady stands up for her country, (SHE IS BOSS) and they all get seized with jelousy because she is SMARTER THAN THEY WILL EVER BE.

  • Tom Long

    Tell Schumer Arizona’s businss is None of His. Begin the New Law Now, not in July as proposed. November will see a Big Change in the Senate and House.

  • horseyguy

    If Brewer is Chairman of the Border Security WHY has he not done some thing about the problem yet, it is because he had no problem with the illegal immigration, he turned a blind eye to the problem and has the nerve to ask for more time. I SAY NO, we will take care of our selves.
    The first thing we the people need to do is get a good foundation again here in America and that is get back to GOD. God Bless all people no matter what color they are.

    • JC

      And if Schumer wants more time…he should be willing to accept Arizona’s illegal aliens until he “gets it right”. Let him have the problem, maybe he’ll gain some understanding of what a southern border state is going through.

    • jomama

      Psssst – horseyguy – Brewer is the good guy – you mean Schumer!!

    • Al Sieber

      Hey horseyguy, Jan Brewer is my governor, the governor of Ariz. and he’s a she.

    • WarriorH

      Chuck was kinda preoccupied with the great HC Bill. Ya know, the one that we can all keep our company insurance and our doctor. Oops, do I have the wrong one? Sorry.

      • JeffH

        No WarriorH, Schumer was the one Democrat holdout on the HCB! He vowed only to not support the illegal alien coverage part and nothing else. Do I have it right?

        • WarriorH

          Thanks, I get so confused when I listen to Nancy, Bwarney, Dickie, POTUS, Charlie, Henry, Barbara, Chuckie, Grayson, Harry and Joey. I can’t remember which one of them was trying to sell me which program.

          I’ll go back to sleep now, it was probably just a bad dream.

      Are you Marvin???

    • rwnut

      WELL SAID,REBECCA.Me and you,or visa versa,are on the same wave length.

  • Veryl Morrell

    The latest telephone poll taken by the Arizona Governor’s office asked whether people who live in Arizona think illegal immigration is a serious problem?

    29% responded, “Yes, it is a serious problem.”

    71% responded, “No es una problema seriosa”

    • Mary

      Of course they said illegals are not a serious problem because they asked to the illegals that question. Illegals are a “problemon” in any part of the world. This country is the worst in protecting their borders. That’s why we are going to have the worst problems with illegals. As our president says ” We haven’t see nothing yet”.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Iy was a joke. you know, HAHAHA??

  • jomama

    Hhmmmmmm. I wonder how this will turn out?? I hope she will not cave!!
    Stick to your guns, Jan Brewer!!!

  • Victor L Barney

    It’s no wonder that New York would have a Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)because New Yorkers have always had a history of receiving bailouts and handouts and idiots as their elected officials! In fact, didn’t even FDR come from there? I know from previously living there myself that New Yorkers love the Marxist concept, which is anti-messiah according to Karl Marx himself! I wonder why our “educated” in America have always loved Marxism right from the very beginning! Perhaps, a deal with Lucifer because they were actually idiots and that was the deal made to cover-up their idiocy from the public? That’s how Lucifer works, don’t you know?

    • 45caliber

      Our “elites” (in their own opinion only) love Communism (not Marxism) because the “elites” have absolute control and run everything. Marxism is a simple democracy where everyone votes on everything including what to make for breakfast. They want to control all the rest of us just as the Communist Party did in Russia.

    • Sidewinder

      “Perhaps, a deal with Lucifer because they were actually idiots and that was the deal made to cover-up their idiocy from the public? That’s how Lucifer works, don’t you know?”

      There is somewhat of a danger in excessivley mixing the spiritual world which we cannot see with our world that we can see. The trouble comes when we begin to believe we see things that are not really there.

      When you start to sound like a fruitcake, and keep mentioning the Bible, Lucifer, ect, all the time when describing THIS WORLD, do you think you may be turning off some that may have a potential interest in joining a religion maybe?

      Because it can have that effect.

      Then who are you serving Victor?

      • JeffH

        …didn’t stop Saul Alinsky from it..

  • 45caliber

    “probably not Consitutional”. Considering the Arizona law is almost word-for-word what the federal law states, perhaps he means that the federal law isn’t Constitutional. In any case, I don’t believe our Founding Fathers intended for us to HAVE to take every person in the world who wants to come here, including everyone’s criminals.

    He wants Congress to “fix” this problem? His method is simply to give everyone amnesty and then open the borders to everyone who will vote liberal.

    • http://www.w3f.com/patriots/ JRBeaman

      I forget the exact words, but they said everyone was welcome if they were honorable and would follow the rules. Seems the ‘illegals’ are neither.

      All countries have border protection and require ID. Why not the US?
      We have been too lenient to illegals. Clinton signed the federal law
      13 years ago. It was tested by the Supreme Court many times, and found to be fine.

      All the distractions of racism and more laws are crap.
      Washington needs to enforce our laws. That is their charter.
      If they don’t want to, then let them leave like the rats they are.

    • A DEMOCRAT NO MORE

      There was something that happened in the 1980′s that was called the meriel boat lift, where who ever in Cuba wanted to come to America could. Jimmy Carter opened his arms and said come to America. He played right into Castros hands. Castros’ regime went to all the mental hospitals, jails and prisons, loaded up the trucks and back them up to anything that would float. How’s that for getting rid of
      a drain on cubas economy. And the ones that came over sent $$$ back
      to cuba. Also not to mention all the criminals and medical needy that
      we had to take care of. We contribute to Mexicos economy. The money
      the illegals get that isn’t taxed does not get spent over here, it gets sent back to mexico. Thats why the mexican govn’t doesn’t care
      about keeping illegals from coming here.

  • Bill

    Schumer just wants to delay, he won’t do anything.
    Don’t need another bill, have enough already. Don’t wait on Schumer.

    • Airangel

      Yeah, they want to delay until AFTER NOV 2010 elections….more smoke and mirrors on fixing the problem…get us elected then we’ll grant amnesty…say NO Jan Brewer…make them fix it now and not after elections!

  • RivahMitch

    So Schumer thinks it’s “wrong-hearted” to want to protect American (more specifically, Arizonans) citizens from an illegal invasion that’s bankrupting their public services and killing their citizens. The only useful function this guy could ever serve would be as a target.

    • http://www.w3f.com/patriots/ JRBeaman

      Rent him a house for his family near the border in AZ.
      Tell him to live there while he delays the mandated
      enforcement of the laws already on the books. Maybe
      he will get a sense of urgency.

      • WarriorH

        Whoa, If I lived in AZ I would rather have the illegals than Schumer!

        • http://?? Joe H.

  • James

    It’s should be quite obvious, now, that the federal government has no intention to defend our borders against those who enter illegally. The Arizona law simply states that that State will help the federal government enforce our immigration laws. Who and what crosses our borders is determined by federal law, but states have the power to help the federal government enforce its law.

    • Rob Alexander

      Yes, QUITE obvious.

      They want more foreigners voting, foreigners tend to be ignorant of American founding principles and/or susceptible to being taught leftist revisionist versions of them.

      They come from the places our establishment politicians want to turn THIS country into, and they know nothing different. Their way of life is choosing between which all-powerful ruler or legislative body will parent them like children and they have no concept of how a welfare state bankrupts a country and destroys freedom…. every establishment politician’s wet dream voter.

  • Barb

    As usual the Obama and company are just trying to stall for time. If Brewer tells Schumer politely NO, the the intimidation and threats will start. Obama will ratchet up the rhetoric and the threats as he goes and there will be nothing going on on the Federal level towards immigration reform. Next thing we’ll know is suddenly Obama will proclaim amnesty, and blame it on Brewer! I just hope Brewer sticks to her guns, oops can I say that, or does that make me a terrorist? She’s not going to back down to a New York Fascist, that’s for sure!

  • 1Fearless1

    Stick to your guns Governor!!!! Congress is now and has always been the problem. Any fix by them will only make things worse. Their fix would open the flood gates even wider. We should adopt trhe tough Mexican laws! If found with out proper documentation equals arrest, imprisonment and deportation! If Congress is serious they would immediately change the anchor baby rule.

    • Barb

      Raggs, I agree but the Libs say that we are hypocrites because we didn’t scream from the highest mountain over the Patriot Act. Of course I wasn’t doing anything against my country those 8 years like planning to bomb cities and terror acts so I wasn’t worried about my phone being bugged were you? Doubt it. Apparently the Libs on this site had something to hide and fear the way they go on about that relatively harmless act, especially compared to micro-chipping and reading emails and blogs! Yet they don’t seem bothered at all by these atrocities do they? Gov. Brewer probably won’t even give Schumer the time of day!

      • http://www.w3f.com/patriots/ JRBeaman

        • Sidewinder

          Yeah…911
          many unanswered questions. Too many.
          I’ve got lots of constantly evolving theorys. Most of them involve Intelligence working hand in glove with Arab intelligence assets.
          Most of these so called terrorists are doing what they do right here in the Western World. This stuff isn’t coming from the Middle East. There may have been camps in Afghanistan, but the planning is done in the West. I read something from a journalist that uncovered that.
          So if this is coming from the West, I wonder if they are nothing but proxys for those who pull strings, perhaps in the various Western intelligence agencies.
          This is not at all unheard of. We did train and back the Afghans covertly to fight the Soviets in the 80′s.

          As for vaccines….I cannot say for sure that they don’t work in all cases. They do seem to protect pets from rabies. But I have never had a flu shot in my life. And I never get the flu.

          I would think some microwave radiation or perhaps a strong electromagnetic field might destroy the chip if implanted?
          Maybe not. Will have to find out how they are made.

          This is screwy….What the hell has the world come to?

  • Abisola

    The only reason for that “Chuck-U Schumer” letter is to buy more time and prevent the self-repatriating effect of this legislation on illegal immigrants. This will give the dems more time to count these illegals in the on-going census, earn more congressional district for open border crowds and they win! I say, make the law stronger. Impose a staggering fine on those who employ illegals, eliminate the anchor baby provision in the constitution and these people will get the message. We are a sovereign nation and I am tired of people coming here and then try to intimidate Americans to accept their illegal behaviors. And I am tired of weak-kneed politician who refuse to represent their constituents-the American people but rather would pander to prospective constituents who never bothered to learn what it is to be an American; tired of Hispanic Americans who seem to be Hispanics first and Americans only when it is convenient for them; and finally, I am tired of my fellow African Americans who fail to realize that a wholesale importation of a new minority will further the democrats agenda of keeping our people in perpetual poverty and push us further down the rung.

        Just like ALL other nations, they need prosecute illegals.
        Period.

        All other discussion is tangential distractions and delay
        tactics. The definition of insanity is doing the same
        thing expecting difference results. Our federal government
        ‘representitives’ are either insane, or trying to destroy
        our once great nation, just like Hitler did for the power.

        Take your pick.

      Abisola ,there an,t no such thang as a african american or hispanic american skin color has nothing to do with being american ,an american is a person that belives in freedom obay,s the law belives in a helping hand not a handout willnot demand anything you have not worked for, will hear both side of the story, and knowing the differance in right and wrong even little children know when something an,t right and breaking, walking. climbing,slipping stealing on to or in to a place or land that is not yours is wrong and illegal but a liberal thinks handout is good and free is good

        • rwnut

          JoeH…I agree with you 100%.Didn’t mean to suggest that I wanted to pick out one race of people.You are correct.Illegal is illegal.But right now the only ones I see openly doing the killing,kidnapping,drug running and smearing this country are the illegal Mexicans,Jihadi’s and Islami’s.I believe we had better take care of the estimated 20,000 million illegal Mexican problem and close the borders,then clean house from within.Most Mexicans,legal and illegal,have a hero in America,Jose Angel Gutierrez,who is the founder of La Raza Unida.An organization that is taking control of our schools and our government.Thier stated goal is to take over the southern border states,at least.I would like to quote Jose. “We have an aging white America…They are dying…We have got to eliminate the gringo,and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst,we have got to kill him”. Watch conservative tv and see if we don’t need to take care of the illegal Mexican problem.Thanks for pointing it out JoeH.

  • JB

    The question ought to be whether “illegal immigration,” (i.e., entering the country illegally) is unconstitutional. Apparently, only a law can be unconstitutional. What determines whether a law is unconstitutional, whether people have the ability to obey it or not?
    Some constitutional guarantees (the securing of the blessings of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) for citizens have been violated by “illegal immigrants.” Does not the government of the U.S. have a moral and legally-binding obligation to, to the best of its ability (admittedly a fallible concept), attempt to fulfill the propositions of the Constitution for its citizens, to the necessary discrimination against, and exclusion of, non-citizens from those rights, privileges and blessings that appertain particularly to citizens? If not, what is the point and benefit of citizenship?

  • OneDamnAngryAmerican

    —, Schumer! Federal laws are already on the books, ENFORCE THEM and stop giving illegals $30,000 per year in food stamps and section 8 vouchers! That is more $$ than the average working American person earns each year, thanks to you, your liberal buddies and our commander-in-chief (would rather play with soldiers then LEAD this country as president, so says he and the media, anyway)!

    Arizona does, in my opinion, need to change the law. They need to add these 5 suggestions:

    1. K-12 children who have parents that cannot proove their residency MUST pay out-of-state tuition for their children. Kind of like Nevada kids who want to cross the Arizona border and go to school there, instead of Nevada. Arizona already has such a law. Now add it to include parents who cannot prove their residency in the USA, or in Arizona. Of course, this would empty Arizona schools, because the parents would never show up to prove their residency, and the State of Arizona would save billions in the cost of educating their legal children!

    2. Any person applying for state benefits must pass a drug and alcohol test, prior to receiving benefits. Add litmus paper and guns (like the cops have) at the counters of all state agencies who “dispense” benefits/money to people!

    3. Children under the age of 18, cannot sign papers giving federal or state benefits to their families, if the parents are illegal. This will run the illegals off, also. If my kid can’t join a music club because of his age, why should an legal kid who’se parents are illegal, be able to apply for state and federal benefits!?

    4. Every state has a “john’s law” to curb prostitution. Institute a “juan’s law” that targets people offering for sale goods and services on street corners, that do not have business licenses, contractor licenses, and solicitor’s licenses!

    5. Force all employers to E-Verify their employees, to include the guy next door who hires illegals from street corners. Make the fine $5,000 per employee and from 6 to 24 months in jail to employers who do not comply!

    Let me know when all of these laws go into affect. I am an elderly, 100% disabled, brain damaged, Viet-Nam, combat veteran. I fear for my life every time I walk out my front door. Last year, when I was going through chemo, a gang of little kids, 5 or 6 years old, ran around me in circles at an ATM in Las Vegas, and because I have no sensation in my crippled right hand, did not know they snatched my ATM card and receipt. I had already put my $$ in my pocket and did not know I was a victum, until I got home, thinking I had put nthe card and receipt in my pocket, also, prior to leaving the ATM, pparently, due to my short and long term memory loss.

    I am single and looking for a new place to move to, so I can spend the remainder of my life in peace and quiet and without the fear of being robbed, beaten, or burglarized!

    I’d rather give my $$ to Arizona businesses who comply with the law, then to live here in Las Vegas, to businesses who do not.

    Why am I living in Las Vegas? I used to live 325 miles away, in Nevada, where there were no health care providers. The county has 5,000 people there and my town only 125. I was forced to move to Las Vegas when I got sick and was disagnosed with cancer from Agent Orange while serving in Viet-Nam.

    Because the VA has not yet approved my claim for cancer from Agent Orange (it is one of the illnesses already associated with the exposure, but they are dragging their feet and have already refused my claim 4 TIMES!) I am one step from being a beggar, and two steps from being homeless!

    My only income, now, is a 4th equity mortgage on a home I have not lived in for 5 years. You know what that means! Only time will tell.

    I thank God every day that I have a bottle of scotch and a loaded revolver, waiting for the time that I will no longer be able to take the pain, or fear, anymore!

    Put Schumer The Yutz to the test. Tell him that in the name of ‘diversity’ and being a ‘caring’ norte americano,’ he will have to ‘adopt’ at least 12 illegal aliens (complete with a truly diverse background that includes drug abuse and violent behavior), and those 12 will have to wear electronic ankle bracelets while they’re living in HIS house.
    The idea that an elected official would dare to ASK another state to ‘wait’ shows the depth and breadth of Schumer’s STUPIDITY. Uncle Scam and his elected retards created this intolerable problem.
    Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Schumer, the Putz of the Senate, acts like Nero.

    Not No, but hell no. I would suggest that she tell him to keep his nose out of Arizona’s business. Give them another year to let another 500,000 dummycrat votes across the border and perhaps hundreds or thousands more tons of drugs, kidnappings, rapes and murders. No thanks. I think Arizona should hire a fleet of 18 wheelers to haul the illegals to New York, Massachusetts and other states who are doing all the complaining.

    • Sue

      I live in Arizona. I think and have thought the best solution to the problem of the illegal crossers is #1 – Stop that practice of where the bleeding hearts leave water jugs and shoes in the desert for the travels into this country illegally. They don’t want them to “die” in the desert when the weather gets over 120 degrees. @2 – The “La Cucaracha’s” have to be made to stay on their side when they are taken back. They wait for the bus to leave, then walk through the fence again. We ought to put down buried bombs that are foot sensitive. So the thrill of coming back up here, isn’t a decision anymore. The decision has been made period.

    I meant “litmus paper and BLOW guns” like the cops use.

    The kids got my ATM card and receipt, but not my money. I immediately called the bank, two hours later, as I was also out doing all my errands (I am single), WHILE UNDERGOING CHEMO, ALONE!

    If Arizona wants to catch the feds attention, somebody should start a petition to sucCeed from the USA and become their own country, the Republic of Arizona. Look in your state’s constitution. It tells you how to do it.

    Of course, it may not work. But, think of the fear this will put into DC, when they hear on the news the succession will be on your next ballot!?

    Don’t forget to kick out all military recruiters, the post of Ft Hurchuca (sorry for the misspeilling) and all federal agencies, once you become a Republic.

    Then, you can shoot illegals who jump over the fence into Arizona, like the feds used to do, prior to Jimmy Carter!

    Also, Arizona should have open and closed carry laws for their legal citizens, and place people, legal or not, into Joe’s type of jail system for from 5 to 25 years, for each offense.

    Somebody’s got to do something to get the fed’s attention!

    As I type this posting, remember this fact, there are more illegals living in Arizona, today, then there are soldirs stationed in the USA!

    Harry Reid got it right, when asked why the feds aren’t enforcing the law. “THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY OF THEM!”

    Does “La Raza” (The Race) have an Arizona state business license and registered with the Arizona Secretary of State? Nope. Not here in Nevada, either.

    La Raza is nothing more then the hispanic KKK. Arizona should arrest all who rally and are otherwise associated with this group, designating it as a hate group bent on racial supremacy, just like Hitler’s youth groups were, and prosecute every illegal for commtting hate crimes against legal Arizonans!

    PLEASE SAVE ARIZONA, ARIZONANS. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL NOT!

    Federal laws regarding Immigration are all ready on the books. Our Government does not need to revise it. Come to this country, learn English, take exam, be a Naturalized Citizen, work, pay into Social Security, the whole nine yards. As for States having their own laws, at this time in our history, Arizona is doing something about the murders of their Citizens and I fully agree with Arizona. At least they have some guts and will stop the man slaughter that is happening on their borders and within. If California follows Arizona, they would come out of the red and find that most of their(tax money) money is supporting Illegals. Crime of all kinds would be greatly reduced. The Federal Government has failed to protect American Citizens and want to legalize the illegals for a reason…the D–m Vote. Oh, how wonderful our new President will be if he demands to legalize illegals without regard to the laws that are already written. Bull! Illegal persons can leave the same way they got here without the American Government spending one red cent. Accompany them to the border and stamp Illegal on their foreheads. If the river is swollen or a boat isn’t handy for them to hide in, sorry…SWIM!

      I’m sure a summer’s tour in Yuma or Phoenix would give Schumer lots of time to think about using his unique ‘talents’ to solve the illegal immigraton issue [and prove that he CARES about the good people of Arizona].

        The only way we can take back our country is to show up and vote in November. We have to get everyone we know to understand what the liberal/socialist party want to do to this country and vote them out. If we get enough of them in November it will tie Obama’s hands for the rest of his term, Pelosi will no longer be speaker of the house, Reid will not only NOT be majority leader, but there is a really good chance he will be booted out on his socialist butt. Then 2 years later we boot out the rest of the Socialist and Obama. It is up to us people, our votes, and we need every one we can get. The Revolution to take back America has begun, don’t slow down, don’t give up,and don’t get complacent. Too many of us have been asleep at the wheel for the last 10 or 12 years (including myself)and we allowed the minority of liberal/socialist voters to get control of our country. We have 6 month’s until mid-term elections, stay motivated,stay informed, and stay PISSED OFF until we get everyone of them out of power and take back our country !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • jan

    Our feds including homeland security has already poven that they are for the illegals and not for the citizens of the US. This problem didn’t just pop up. We’ve had commitees for years attempting to deal with this problem and they have done nothing. They are too concerned for the rights of the illegals who by our constitutions should have no rights. Its about time someone stood up to our government and fights for the rights of our legal citizens. And as for the INS they are only about raking in the fines while they release the illegals out the back door. They just care about the money to keep their operation funded with their overpaid positions.

    I would think you had time enough Chuck.The illegals should be allowed to apply for ctizenship after a7 to 10 year waiting period.They should pay double [that is 2x] taxes that means social security, etc for that time and at the end of period pay the same as legal citizens.If they go back to thier country for a period of 2 weeks they start the waiting period at beginning of day 1.The children born in that time period are legal after said period and children no matter what age after said period.Anyone with a record of question is not allowed.When I say illegal that means any other nationality ther than those born in the U.S.[Japenese,Chinense.Russsian,Mexican,Brazillian ETC}Maybe that would keep the ACLU HAPPY.We might even have enough money for education and health care after that.Might even get Social Security on track,and help some of the vets have health care so they dont lose their homes

  • http://www.churchofthemuzzelflash.com/ Freeman

    The problem is now, not later.
    Maybe a short term resolution using existing law until the fed wakes up?
    Then too, this leaves me wondering…
    Just why is it that problem solving on all levels is now later this year?
    Exactly what kind of fun and games is Washington playing this time?
    What is coming that they are aware of and is such a big secret?
    Some of that major ‘change’ legislation sure came through in a hurry, but now most of the rest of it is put on hold?
    Use the border as training for the troops we are going to send to a similar environment!
    In getting real, how about nothing for those who cross illegally? Except being sent back?
    A little gun fire might slow things down…make crossing points into firing ranges…test land mines in these areas…
    Make the system into a quick response for those wanting to be here and participate in our system. Forget getting permission from Mexico, check police records, and bring them in. English classes mandatory…
    Those already here, who are/have been paying into the system, fix their numbers, give them a green card, AND a big ol Welcome!
    Maybe offering cultural centers, Mexican/Latino heritage centers, would help mitigate some of the hard feelings?
    After all, these are honorable people and just might deserve the recognition of some of the hardest workers I’ve ever met.
    Radical works both ways. Tight border control in exchange for entry seems like a fair exchange to me.
    Anyone of Latino heritage who is experienced in this area care to comment on these ideas?
    Everyone would like to hear and know if this might be acceptable…

    • Chewy

      I agree, we need to make it easier for the immigrants who want to play by the rules to become legal citizens, and they definitely need to learn the language and have NO criminal record. Every one of the Mexican gang bangers need to be rounded and shipped back. Did you know that even Alaska is having problems with growing numbers of these gangs, Alaska is along way from the southern border, they need to be stopped long before they make it to Alaska.
      I am so sick of the racial profiling complaint. If your here legally then you don’t need to worry about being stopped. If they think that having to show an id to prove they are legal is such a horrible ordeal, and it’s not worth the benefits of living in this country, then go back where you came from. As for the anchor baby law, that is crap, just because a pregnant woman manages to get across the border in time to give birth shouldn’t be a free pass.At the very least, maybe give the parents 1 year to become legal residents or they all get shipped back. As it stands now they give birth to one so called legal baby, and then bring 10 more illegal people in with them. It has to stop.

    Since I live in Ariz. I’m exposed to a lot of local Az. news. this new law was a couple of years in the making, plus numerous petitions to the Fed. govt. under Bush and Obama to no avail. the Ariz. law makers took it upon themselves to write this bill. the people of AZ. are sick of the drop houses, kidnappings, drug smuggling, murder, rape and over all violence done to the people of Ariz.. why do these people support the illegals and not the people who are suffering from the crimes of the illegals? these illegals don’t want to become Americans, they want to displace us and create their own society. our governor answers to the residents of Ariz. not to “chuckie” Schumer and the peoples republic of N.Y.. this law is not unconstitutional.

    The feds have had how many years to fix this problem and now that it is out in the open with Arizona’s law they want another year to fix it. You don’t need more laws to fix the problem – start enforcing those we already have, keep your promise to build the fence, show people you words have some meaning. So far you are failing miserably! So instead of the feds taking constructive action, they keep running off at the mouth. Arizona’s law MUST stand and IF the feds finally get the border secured and illegal immigration under control (not in our lifetime) then Arizona might consider your request.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    From: James Graham

    THE HEART OF OUR PROBLEMS IS OUR POLITICANS ARE MONEY HUNGRY !!!!

    As a widow of a military retiree, who stood with her husband for over 20 years while he served this country (which was the greatest in the world until this Congress and President took over), I have to say I agree. Shirley

    As a retired military man that have given over twenty-seven years of my life to my country, I truly feel that what this
    Country needs most is a new amendment to the Constitution . I am recommending that we add the 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn’t pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered…in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

    This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

    “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Congressman, Senators, Representatives and the President together with his/her staff; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Congressman, Senators, Representatives, and the President together with his/her staff that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”.

    This 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES Will apply to all passed, present and future
    Presidents an their staffs , Congressman, Senators an Representatives.
    Just think of all the money this would save the tax payers!!!!!

    I think the Senators, Representatives or Congressman that comes out strongly for this will be our next President.

      James A Graham I have told you before…you don’t want to call for a Constitutional Convention.

      In doing so, you would allow the very termites who have eaten away at our Liberty, to have total access, and authorization to change our Constitution.

      You want to trust these people?

      Believe me, we would get far more than just a 28th Amendment.
      And no, you wouldn’t like it.
      Like children playing with matches, they cannot be trusted.

    We Americans vote reps into office aned we can vote them out. Vote every chance you get! Clean House, Democrats and Republicans. “Me thinks they stay way over their useful time.” Gov’t officals are hired by voting U S Citizens. They work for the good of the population, supposedly. No more Ted Kennedy types…WAY too many years!!! The further away our tax dollars are kept(?) (Washington DC), the more squandering of that money; and, without our knowledge most of the time. As for the current President, He gets two years if not impeached before his two years is up. The first promise was to get people back to work. Unemployment is about 10%, now. Maybe more. I guess if I could build a bridge and paid with “China’s money”, I would have a job. I do have a question. Does the President’s wife need 20+ people to actually take care of her? She was not voted into office. Our tax dollars pay for those people to keep her.

    We should all read this at least once a week until November and we “throw the bums out!”

    545 vs. 300,000,000

    Be you Republican or Democrat, you’ll want to read this short article.

    Charley Reese’s articles have prompted more letters to the editor than any of the other Orlando Sentinel columnists in memory and he has sure hit the nail on the head here. 545 vs. 300,000,000 – What in the world happened to us? The article is completely neutral, not anti republican or democrat — just plain ole Charlie. If you do not know, he is retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel who has been a journalist for 49 years.

    Please share this with your friends.
    ————————————————–
    545 VS THE PEOPLE

    By Charlie Reese

    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them…Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits? Have you ever wondered if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes? You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million who are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress.

    In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason… They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party. What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits…The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker Of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party… She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red…

    If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ, it’s because they want them in IRAQ.

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way…

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.

    Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or” politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people and they alone, are responsible.

    They and they alone, have the power.

    They and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees… We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not a single tax existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

    What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

    And I still have to ‘press 1′ for English!?

    I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!!

    YOU can help it get there!!!

    GO AHEAD – - – BE AN AMERICAN !!!!

      At 7:57 a.m., May 11, 2010 an incredible article by Charlie Reese

      Thank you Charlie Reese.

      It’s hard to believe what our country is going through. We know what our country is and we believe it has been built on hard work and devotion to principles. We all make mistakes in life, but our elected officials don’t understand the damage being done by their lack of devotion to principles and the law, even though they absolutely believe they are doing right.

      I firmly believe all immigration should be stopped for several years until we can uphold our immigration laws.

      Out of our population of 300 million people only a few are veterans of the Second World War almost 70 years ago and we are not the only ones to feel the pride of being American. I wish we had some influence on Washington.

    • Chewy

      That letter is so well put, I can’t think of one thing to add. 545 people are screwing up this country. The only thing I will add to this is those 545 people need to take way better care of our soldiers, if anyone should be paid, and paid well after leaving active service for the rest of their lives, it should be our Vets, and certainly NOT Barney Franks !

    THAT’S GOOD STUFF

    He’s done it again..
    He sure isn’t backing down on his hard line stance and one has to appreciate his belief in the rights of his native countrymen.

    A breath of fresh air to see someone lead.
    I wish some leaders would step up in Canada & USA.

    Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

    This man should be appointed King of the World.. Truer words have never been spoken.

    It took a lot of courage for this man to speak what he had to say for the world to hear. The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least he was willing to take a stand on his and Australia’s beliefs.

    Whole world needs a leader like this!

    • Sidewinder

      King of the World?

      Thats gonna solve a lot of problems… Some people cannot be reached…

    Prime Minister Kevin Rudd – Australia

    Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..

    Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:

    ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It.
    I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘

    ‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’

    ‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

    ‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

    ‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

    ‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

    ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

    Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada & USA , WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

    If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know.

    • Marjorie

      Amen. I agree with what you have said 100%. I admire the Australian Prime Minister. This is the attitude we need in our country. No bull, no beating around the bush. We Americans need to speak up and stand up for our rights. This is our country and English is our language. What happened to the Americans of today? The Americans of old would have had the common sense and bravery to stop the things that are happening in our country today. Look at our morals, values, our families, television and the media. Today many Americans accept anything under the sun. Where is God in the picture (they took him out too)? Have you noticed when God is taken out of the picture everything falls apart.

    • http://AMERICANVISION.ORG LEE

      GOD BLESS AUSTRALIA,HELL I FIGHT AND DIE FOR YOU ANY DAY!!!! KEEP THE FAITH AND DON’T LET THEM DO TO US WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO FRANCE AND ENGLAND.THOSE BETTER GET IT TOGETHER FAST OR IT WILL BE TO LATE.THIS AUSTRALIA MAN SAID IT ALL,I AM PROUD OF HIM,AND THINK HE SHOULD BE KNIGHTED,GOD BLESS AND PROTECT HIM,LEE

      • Barb

        I’ve always loved the Aussies but never more than I do now! This is the 2nd time the Aussie PM has told the Muslim immigrants what for! Kudos!!! He is a real leader of free people! Now if we could only find a few good men like that here in the USA!

    • Hugh Jordan

      Good for the Ausies. The Europeans should see this , too as they are having huge problems with Muslims making aggressive demands.

      If they want to live by a Muslim code, stay home.

  • Monty

    I think what is so upsetting to Obama and his comrades is Arizona having the backbone to act independently of the Federal government and they’re scared to death that other states will follow suit. Remember, dependence NOT independence is what they’re after. This applies to all levels from the individual citizen to the cities, counties, and STATES. Everyone and every level of Govt is to be dependent on the Feds in one form or another if they have their way. To the governor of Arizona, thank you for providing a glimmer of hope that the fundamental core of our republic is still alive and viable. If your neighboring states refuse to support you in your effort, then shame on them for being too spineless to use their Constitutionally awarded authority to preserve the efforts of our forefathers.

  • refuse2lose

    This is just a smokescreen,congress wants time so they can pass amnesty for all the millions of illegals living here.Nobody in congress wants to stand up to them,liberals want to give them free everything at the tax payers expense and conservatives want to keep them here because they work for next to nothing.

  • crystal

    …in the meantime, Arizona has to deal with the fact that Phoenix is number two capital of kidnapping in the world.

  • pianoval11

    SCHUMER can pound SAND. Another absolute nut case. My company and many others in Washington state are supporting Arizona businesses any way we can. Gov.Brewer is so correct on this bill. I want all of you to also know, the other of many rats, Hillary Clinton, working on taking our gun rights away, through the UN. Then you have the two face fence walker, John McCain, working with the demorats on Amnesty reform.This guy needs to be placed in a nursing home before he hurts himself. He sure the HELL will hurt us if he gets this bill through our weak congress/senate. As for, the Mad as hell Americian, My heart goes out to you SIR. I was one of the lucky ones in Nam, I got out with only 0-respect for this corrupt government and media. Drink the Scotch, save the ammo for a Brown shirt.

  • Cribster

    I’ve been dwelling on something insightful and intelligent to reply to this post and after much consideration I would like to say Schumer can pound salt up his anal orifice!

    • Sidewinder

      LOL!

      Those in office seem blind to the political storm brewing….

  • Jim Allen

    The answer to many, many of our problems here in the USA is due to the lack of God. We kicked Him out of our schools, we kicked him out of our government and we are not allowing him into our hearts.

    We all need to smarten-up, get down on our knees and ask Him to come into our lives. We all need to get back to regularly reading the BOOK…..The Bible! Don’t take other peoples word, study the Word as left for us by Jesus Christ.

    We must treat the illegals with firmness, yet with love. We must treat the liberals with firmness, yet with love. Why? Because God told us to do so.

    • Barb

      Jim Allen, That’s what we were doing and look what the left took from us. We weren’t firm enough and showed too much love. Now were are in a real pickle and If we all pray for His help and forgiveness maybe we can still salvage what is left of our freedoms and our country as we know it. But we are going to have to be a whole lot firmer and use a whole lot less love to get it done.Turning the other cheek won’t work any more. I think God is still with us on this and Christ will be there with us all the while also. Prayer is a powerful weapon, oops I did it again, I should say tool for the sensitive lefties!

    • Sidewinder

      “The answer to many, many of our problems here in the USA is due to the lack of God. We kicked Him out of our schools, we kicked him out of our government and we are not allowing him into our hearts.”

      You are wrong.
      God does not need to be in our schools, God does not need to be in our government.

      God only need be in your heart.

      You want God in Government….move to the Middle East. In the United States, we have Seperation of Church and State.

      Heres the First Amendment:
      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

      Do you really want some OTHER religion’s God Party in there telling you how you should be living your life? Morality, like religion is a personal issue.

      Keep God in your heart, and out of government and public schools.

      Don’t misunderstand me…Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof……

      That means they cannot BAN personal practice in those places either.

  • Harold Olsen

    Yeah, Chuckie boy, she should give you idiots time to come up with a new Federal law. How much time? 50, 60,100 years? You idiots are so incompetent you can’t even go to the bathroom without being shown how.

    Governor Brewer should not only say no, she should say HELL NO!!! You idiots have had your chance. You won’t do what you’re supposed to do until you are forced to do it and by then it’s generally too late. We need to replace you morons with people who actually care about this country and who are willing to enforce our existing laws which, if done, would take care of the problem.

  • Judy

    We already have laws on the books, our government seems just to ignore them. We need to back Jan Brewer, it is her state, and states rights.
    The problem is way out of hand and costing us dearly in strapped economy. I know how it is in the school system where I work.
    These illegals seem to think they belong here, but I can tell, having lived near the border, if you crossed it and they found you, they would either shoot you or put you in jail and dare your country to interfere. They need to go home and work on their own country instead of trashing ours. This is not a prejudice point of view, but a sensible one. Even if we had a law, it would not be enforced it is a stall tactic, and it is not a racism thing to say go home, you are not in our country legally and we are not going to spend our tax dollars supporting you any longer.

  • lawfull

    President Reagan said “the government is the problem”
    there is case law already on the books which shows states can enforce this law and the govt wants to find a way to twist and manipulate. – All this uproar about enforcing the laws, you cant pick and chose what laws to enforce, you need to enforce (all) the laws and this one specifically is way overdue. and why is the president not following the law, that is my question?????

  • mammaw

    The reply’s I just read don’t sound like the Americans I grew up with. Instead of nasty remarks about our leaders, get involved. Send them letters with constructive comments. I keep hearing you want less government, but you want government to protect the borders. You want less government, but will you give up your Medicare, your government pension, paved highways, schools and all of the other things government provides. No you won’t.
    Contribe something besides nasty comments.

  • mammaw

    Ronald Reagan is dead and gone. Move on. This is a different time. History shows that he was not a good president.

  • mammaw

    If employers would stop hiring illegals they would not come.

    • Barb

      You are right, SOME come over for jobs, but a big percentage come over to have their babies so they will be Americans and then they get all the free hand outs for generations! Then there’s the large percentage that come over to do illegal activities such as lead gangs and sell and grow and cook drugs! They come over illegally for a reason and it’s usually not good for us! If they really wanted to become American citizens they would do it the right way, and they wouldn’t care about their old flag they would care about their NEW country’s flag, Ol’ Glory!

    mammaw, are you lib’s mamee, I don’t know what planet you grew up on, or what rock you crawled out under. But this kind of response to knuckle headed liberals has been going on for decades. When you simpleminded people, are so much in awe of college educated do nothings, this is what we get. Schumer, a spoilt rich boy brat, that went to school for years, then got elected to Congresas, Hook the Crook Dodd, went to school and right to Congress, Daschle went to school, worked for registered communist, George McGovern, and then we have Onumnut, went to Harvard, got a job on taxpayer’s money, screwwed and scammed into Congress, slithered his way in to the White House and only experience as a businessperson, is selling and dealing drugs, a known muslim, socialist, marxist, democrat, now he is appointing another educated do nothing for the Supreme Court, hasn’t even been a traffic court judge, loves socialism and government control. Think there may be a pattern here. College educated in certain colleges, certain mind set, more liberal bent worshipped, couldn’t think of anything new but more government control. Still don’t think the whole democrat party is a socialist comunist bunch of mind less morons of follow the hand book of a dictator.

  • Jim

    To trust Chuck Schumer for anything is past acceptable, Not this New Yorker (I don’t live in New York City) It’s way past time to chuck Chuck!! He’s bought and sold to the highest Wall Street bidder and either doesn’t know his purpose or is simply taking advantage of his position for his and his party’s benefit.

  • BigIron

    The United States (government) was delegated the power to control the borders and immigration by our Constitution. If the United States refuses to carry out their obligations under that delegation of power then that power to control immigration falls, rightly, under the power of the State, first, and then the people themselves. It is within the power of the State to reclaim those powers due to the failure of the United States to “perform”. If the State should also fail to “perform” then that power may be reclaimed and, lawfully, exercised by the people themselves. 10A

    It is not the prerogative of the United States (government) to pick and choose which of its Constitution obligations it would “perform” or to claim other obligations and powers that it was NOT delegated. Failure to limit itself to only those powers delegated to it and failure to “perform” its duties and obligations as delegated to it by the States and by the people places it in violation of “contract”. The States and the people may “require” that the United States “cease and desist” in ALL violations of its delegated powers, violations of both commission and omission, or be declared “null and void” by the States or the people and its powers rescinded by the States or the people until such time as its proper function may be “repaired” and its (limited) powers be again be delegated by the States and the people to take its place in the government of these United States under our Constitution.

    It is long past time to “lock-down” our borders and send “illegals” home. “Illegals have “natural” rights as do ALL men (species) but NOT “privileges”, those are reserved for “legals”.

    Stop trying to “redistribute the wealth” through “excessive” welfare and those jobs that “no one will do” will suddenly, miraculously find willing workers. It is a “natural” right of a person to starve if that is their desire or to live without shelter if that is their desire, etc.; it is NOT their “right” to demand that I (we) give them food or shelter; I (we) may choose to do so but they have no “right” to “demand” that I (we) do so.

    It is also long past time to reign in the Federal Government and restore our Constitutional Republic. The current government is in violation of its contract, under the Constitution, with the States and the people.

    It is time to restore our personal Liberty and that includes our exclusive “rights” to the “fruits of our labors”. If we do this prosperity will return to our great Land.

    Folks, it’s time to get out of the computer chair and go to a “Tea Party” … that’s where you’ll find others who are for: “small, Constitutional government: fiscal Conservatism; and personal Liberty” and they can help you get active in effective ways. Learn how “the precinct solution” works (Google it) and, then, get into the Republican party and “fix” it; it’s a ready and waiting, already established third-party at this point. The time to act is NOW!

    If you aren’t willing to work to change things (just voting is not enough) … stop complaining! … you’re already getting everything you’ve earned.

  • Daniel C. Speace

    If it is not clear to almost everyone of voting age then those who do not understand need to be reminded of this: The overwhelming consensus of the Citizens of the United States is that we have had enough lip service, conflicting dialog from our National Government and our representatives, and inactivity on the problems associated with illegal immigration. Senator Chuck Schumer is simply trying to cover for his and his party’s negligence and protecting President Obama who has chosen to not get involved except to allow delays in a solution and or implementation of existing solutions. The delay will of course benefit the Democrat Party and the liberals who hope to be re-elected on November 2, 2010. Any move on the part of the government of Arizona to back off would be unacceptable to the several states who want to follow up and to the citizens who want this Arizona bill to stimulate action now. Do not delay. Do not cave in. Please. We are watching and waiting for some show of strength.

  • Sally Q

    Gov.Jan Brewer should just say no. No more waiting-no more to illegals and protect our borders, other states are introducing the same law. (yea)
    As many of you can see by the demonstrations around the country the Hispanics want to take over our country and they hate us. Because, they can’t have their way they want to destroy us. They have already named the western part of the country AZLAN.
    We must back Jan and tell the illegal hispanic’s & others to go home and come back the law abiding way.
    As for boycotts, if the state hasn’t any money we can’t even hire them as bus boys, waitress, gardeners or toilet bowl cleaners. Arizona will survive with out them. You go Jan

  • chuck b

    our country is at a crossroads and this next election will decide whether we go down the path of socialism or retain our freedom and return to our constitutional law. the demo’nista party has chosen the social road which leads to communism, the republican party has in the last nine years became a stagnant do nothing body of losers, they remind me of nine year olds just caught with their hand in the cookie jar. (treasury) only to find out the demo’nistas had already been there. barry soetoro is busy collecting immigrants from all parts of the world especially the muslim countries, their vote will help keep him in power, the sieu is busy registering the illegal mexican vote, so come november don’t be surprised at the outcome. we may have already lost the battle and it will only be worse come 2012. so what do we do smile and join the comrades.
    joining the tea party and help root out the professional politicians
    would be a good start, standing behind janet brewer would be another. breaking our laws is not a right for the illegal aliens.

    If Justice Department would just put a bounty on illegals it would employ a lot of people and use welfare rats to get a job, but some welfare rats are illegals. Don’t think it will happen because it might include the muslim fake President. Also employers aren’t posecuted because they ar big democrat donors and party leaders

    The Justice department, could just put a bounty on illegals, it would employ a lot of people, and based on productivity, a new thought for unions. Send out welfare rats since most cohabitat and know the illegals because illegals are their drug mules. But don’t think it will happen because the muslim phony Prez might be gathered up, that would be the bonus prize!

      Do you think the religion of Islam should be banned in the United States?

      If so, are there other religions we should ban?

      • JeffH

        easy Sidewinder! The pickens are just too easy in this case!

        • Sidewinder

          Yes its a set up.

          He keeps mentioning the Muslim President. I wondered if he felt that perhaps that religion should be banned.

          I wanted to ask him too if he believes The US was founded as a Christian nation. And if he respects our Constitution.

    This is an old report for ONE COUNTY in ONE STATE (not counting AZ and NV) JUST SICKENING. I have not stayed on top of it because it’s so depressing…

    In April 2007, LA County reported that illegal aliens were using $35 million per month in CalWorks and Food Stamps. By August 2008 that number had crept to $37 million per month. A year and a half later it is now up to $50 million PER MONTH IN ONE COUNTY. If you’ve been hearing that illegal aliens are leaving the United States, you’re being lied to. The numbers prove out the truth.

    Education expenses can’t be ignored though as they are so large as to dwarf any talk of the costs of enforcing immigration laws or building a border fence. Illegal aliens cost California nearly $9 billion a year in education expenses, according to a 2004 report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform. A report from the same group in 2005 entitled “Breaking the Piggy Bank: How Illegal Immigration is Sending Schools Into the Red” put the national costs – not including free and low cost lunches or English as a Second Language (ESL) – at $28.6 billion per year. From 2005, the percentage increase is 27%!!!! as the population of illegals and their children has grown substantially.

    In addition, La Raza, MEChA and other racist radical groups in California are yelling “This is Occupied Mexico”. The violence is brewing…just wait…and yet California is boycotting Arizona and Arizona is losing 90 million because of this bill…Spend your money in AZ or donate because AZ can’t stand strong and pave the way if they go broke and the “LEGAL CITIZENS” lose wages and jobs because of all the cancellations. This which is how the “bigger ups” make them cave in….just like sanctions against other countries.

    This government does not seem to understand what illegal means. They want to give them amnesty so they can make dumocrats out of them. That way the dumocrats would be in power forever. God help us if that happens.

    snake why don’t you read the Koran, it will give you insite of the BS religion. Of course, it has rules like most of you socialist dems love, total control. They cann’t get away from their religon, telling muslims it is ok to lie to all non muslims, if you don’t convert, kill all, children, women, and men.Women have no rights less than a dog, it is ok to marryu off a baby girl to some pervert like Mohamid was. Muslim men can divorce their wives, by simple saying to tell them, I divorce you three times, also the sick bastards can kill their family if a supposed slight has happened. They live and take over neighbor hoods which practice sharia law, is practiced there in the USA. Hell yes send them back to the deserts, they take more than they add to our society. The USA has went after groups that deny medical care to their children or if they beat their wives. If the muslims don’t like being disliked for a muslims, don’t hear any muslim rag headed organization complaining or standing up when a terrorist attack us, why, the mind set, if someone tells the facts on muslims religion they disappear. Still the the stone aged nut jobs, fit the democrat party, maybe you snake are a liberal socialist muslim democrat like Onumnut.

    • Sidewinder

      Thank you i41

      yes Liberty Digest just did an article on labels. You just called me a socialist and a Democrat. LOL! I suppose thats pretty much everything you hate.

      No, I’m not muslim, I have no interest in reading the Koran. Nor voting Democrat…LOL.

      My defense was not of Islam. It was of our Constitution. We were founded on religious freedom, to worship as you see fit, or not to worship at all. Yes, the founders were Christian, but they were also fair. If you are not willing to live by those laws spelled out in the Constitution, then how can you respect it?
      But truthfully, you never said you did.

      No sane person wants to kill their kids or act in the way you describe. That type of behavior is symptomatic of some other problem, being wrapped in religion to justify it. We don’t kill kids in America. We put kid killers in prison. Religious freedom, provided it does not violate the rights of others.
      So far Pres Obama has not hurt his kids…LOL!

      We don’t have to like the religion. More important to adhere to the higher principal, and not start making exceptions. When we start making exceptions to the Constitution, we wind up here.

        i don’t think the founding fathers went so far as to ban our christian faith from the government, there was no islam in the country and the jews were not a problem in the sense they were not accepted. the senate prayed even thomas jefferson prayed to the christian god.
        there is simply no historical foundation for the proposition that the framers intended to build a wall of separation (between church and state) the “wall of separation between church and state” is a metaphor based on bad history. a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging, it should be frankly and explicity abandoned. chief justice of the supreme court, william rehnquist.
        the founders were referring to the fact they did not want a church ruling the country like the church of england, the one they fled from when coming to america.

    Muslims get and want more special privilges, I don’t like dems, they have a determintal effect on society and lives, as well as businesses. Socialists, followed by communism, followed by a dictator, you idoit. Democrats creat laws, but don’t abide by them, will not hold their braindead party smucks to the same standrads as the public have to. Socialism break the country and don’t last over a 100 years at that. If you read the Koran, you would understand their stoneaged beleifs, of course, maybe you are a sight trained reader, from the public school system. If I want to know about you socialist dems, read your books, watch your liberal heros on C-span , or MCNBC and All Bull Crap news. Democrats have a one track motive, government control and bigger government. They love the unions,dem morons cann’t bargin or do anythig themselves, need a boss. Ya, I don’t like dems and hate muslims, they are tied together, both lie and haven’t done anything good for this country. Name one thing that has worked as it was promised!!

    If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland, or on an airplane, and when you got to your assigned seat, and someone else was in that seat, what would you do? You would call for a person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat removed. You would be properly asked to show your ticket, and you would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that seat. The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, and they would not be able to produce one. They would be called “gate crashers” and they would be properly removed.

    Now in this huge stadium called the USA we have had millions of gate crashers. We have been asking security to check for tickets and remove the gate crashers. We have been asking security to have better controls in checking at the door. We have asked security to lock the back doors. Security has failed us. They are still looking the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full price!

    In section AZ, of Stadium USA, we have had enough of the failures of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and properly remove those who do not have tickets. Now it seems very strange to me that so many people in the other 49 sections, and even many in our own section do not want tickets checked, or even be asked to show their ticket! Even the head of Security is chastising us, while not doing his own job which he has sworn to do.

    My own ticket has been bought and paid for so I am going to proudly show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the gate crashers to be asked to show their tickets too. The only reason that I can imagine anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is that they are in favor of gate crashing, and all of the illegal activities that go with it. Such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder, human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts that we are trying to prevent with our new legislation. Is that what I am hearing from all of the protestors such as Phoenix Mayor Gordon, US Rep. Grijalva, even President Obama? If you are not in favor of showing tickets, (proof of citizenship, passport, green card, or other legal document) when asked, as I would proudly do, then you must be condoning those illegal activities.

    Now we have plastic Nancy telling the Catholic pastors to speak for illegals and tell the congregation to support illegals and the usual socialist bidge. I thought schools couldn’t allow prayer even if the student does the praying by themselves. Typical democrat BS, talk out both sides of their rears. seperation of church and state, what is that? What about this that you numskull dems can defend, where did you slink off to. Too much facts to dismiss, so you all crawled under your dung piles in your mud huts. Chuch b really spanked you libs to day, of course dems love a good thumping, it is in preping for the muslim way.

    AMERICA SUPPORTS ARIZONA. The majority would get obama out of the white house imm if they could. Bloggers and emailers will be the VOICE OF AMERICA. From now until November, add those words boldly at the end of every single email: VOTE OUT INCUMBENTS. Vote in only PRO AMEIRCANS, that means anyone PARACHUTING EVIL to citizens of USA gets shown the door. INVASION OF A COUNTRY CANNOT BE JUSTIFIED BY ANY RELIGIOUS. IT IS ETHICALLY UNTENABLE. Importing muslims should be halted immediately. They owe America 3,000 lives. It is obvious by the
    increased frequency in attempted terrorism that they feel empowered by the president of the USA. That they are imported by the thousands imply an evil conspiracy against America exists. That illegals and imported muslims get higher priority than men and women who lay their lives on the line is a shameful disgrace. A 10 yr moratorium on all immigration is necessary to put America to rights: all experts in the world advise it.

  • Lee De

    Gee, hold of for one more year. That ought to be enough time for about another 50,000 more illegals to gain access to the country… wonder how many will then illegally vote?

    I’ve always said,if you’re forcibly intercoursed once,you have a case for rape.But,if you’re forcibly intercoursed twice,then you must be likin’ it. I’ll leave you with a poem from a famous bandit,Black Bart.(no it’s not ok to rob,but the words are very true for some of the congressmen today) “I’ve labored long and hard

    For honor and for riches,
    But on my corns too long
    you’ve tred,

    We don’t need time for Congress to come up with a law. The Arizona law is pretty much a copy of the Federal law. All we need is for the feds to enforce the laws they have on the books now.

    Fat chance of that, though. The politicians are planning amnesty so they can get the votes of the ‘newly legalized’ citizens. I won’t mention the political contributions the politicians get from employers utilizing cheap illegal labor.

    Time to vote them all out!

  • MadMarty

    Quit wasting your votes on rich people who are in the back pocket of their rich buddies, who want to destroy the middle class so they can bring in cheap labor and steal your house to pay for it.

    Like Jim H. said in the very first comment: “The Feds have had 230 years to get it right how much more time should we give them?”

    They got it right… FOR THEM.

    FIRE THEM!!!

    Vote Libertarian!
