Left And Right Politics

…plus the cream in the center.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ve heard about Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has sign the Bill (sb1070) into law. A law that makes it necessary for all people to carry their identification card with them at all times. The law gives Police Officials the authority to ask and to see the information not only from aliens but from any individual that is considered suspicious or when there is enough suspicion that suspect is not legal resident.

The Democrats as well as many different Hispanic coalitions up in arms saying that the bill is unconstitutional and racially bias. How can a bill that targets people who are here illegally (Russian, Canadians, Mexicans and many other) be racially bias? Yes the bill passed in the state of Arizona and they do have an extreme problem with the illegal Mexican population. Before you get annoyed by the comment of “problem”, let me list the issues that Arizona is having with the illegal population in their state.

* 22% of the felonies in Maricopa county are committed by illegal immigrants.
* The federal government has estimated that the illegal population in Arizona has grown from 330,000 in 2000, to 560,000 in 2008.( )
* 17% of those arrested by the Border Patrol in the Tucson area already have criminal records in the United States.
( )
* In 2007, the Center for Immigration Studies estimated that 12 percent of workers in Arizona are illegal immigrants.
( )

These are just four that I have listed, but the issues go on forever. Issues that include some illegal immigrants being on welfare, having no insurance, as well as their U.S. born children (which shouldn’t have been born here if their parents stayed in their own country) in the school system. I won’t even go into the issue of these illegal immigrants paying taxes.

The problem is not they want to come here and take part in the American dream, it the fact that they are not coming into this country through the legal system. I am a second generation American, my grandparents came here to this country through Ellis Island. I agree with the law that Arizona’s Governor has passed and as Americans we all should.

    My issue with it is the fact that it opens up the chance for police to abuse their power. “If someone LOOKS illegal, stop them.” What makes someone look illegal? They’re skin color is the biggest one. So, it just opens up a Pandora’s box that I’d rather not seen open. I agree something needs to be done, but instead of doing this, why not target the businesses that hire illegals? If no one hires them, they won’t come.

    As I usually hear from the left, “it’s the fault of the private sector.” They are to blame for hiring iilegal immigrants, but if the border were sucure and if law enforcement were free to do their job, it can be solved.
    The federal laws are too laxed on immigration which is the start of all this crap. Look at every issue this country has and it will always point back to being the government’s fault first and foremost.
