The State Of Georgia Is Being Sued On Immigration Law

Posted by Billy On June - 27 - 2011

A federal judge in Atlanta has decided that the new state law Georgia passed recently is unconstitutional and has issued an order which will temporarily block enforcement of the state’s law which is to take effect this Friday. The Judge Thomas Thrash’s order to block the law, which would penalize anyone who transports or harbor illegal immigrants, from taking place.

Since when is it unconstitutional to uphold the laws which have passed. The Constitution clearly states that the States have power over the federal government when it comes to laws in their state. Illegal immigration is ILLEGAL, period. We as Americans have the right to protect our sovereignty and this judge’s decision is just wrong. The lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who’s name is in and of itself is a joke. How can you protect America’s liberties if you’re giving rights to non citizens? The ACLU is joined by the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigration right groups. Again immigration rights pertain to immigrants coming here legally.

The Anti-Defamation League along with 11 Latin American countries — Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru — have joined as plaintiffs in the suit. My thoughts on that is…these countries have no rights to be involved in any way to dispute our laws. Most (if not all) of these countries have strict immigration laws of their own, so who are they to dictate to us about our laws?

Republican Gov. Nathan Deal and other state officials have asked Thrash to dismiss the class-action suit, arguing the law is constitutional, the groups have no standing to sue and the state should be immune from such lawsuits anyway. I agree with the Governor’s stance, other countries have no rights in any other country’s laws which includes the United States.

Georgia’s new law, State House Bill 87, allows police to check the immigration status of suspects who can’t provide accepted identification. It will also let law enforcement agencies to detain and hand over to federal authorities someone found to be in this country illegally. The law also states that lying about immigration status on job applications is a felony. The law requires many employers to use a federal database to check immigration status of any prospective employees. This is the way it’s suppose to be in the first place, but the federal government has made it so easy for illegal immigrants to come into the country and acquire jobs.

The sovereignty of this country is in jeopardy and with states enacting these laws, it’s the only way we will ever get it back.

Arizona’s Immigration Bill SB1070

Posted by Billy On April - 29 - 2010

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.( http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/statistics/publications/ois_ill_pe_2008.pdf )
* 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.
( http://www.cis.org/immigrants_profile_2007 )

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.
