We are a Nation of laws, a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy and abiding by those laws is required of all citizens. Disregarding law leads to chaos and diminishes the American dream. I support Arizona in their efforts to provide a better quality of life for its people. Those who earned their citizenship understand the value of the pursuit and the eventual gain that comes from being a bonafide citizen. And let me state, the Arizona law that was passed is just a replica of the Federal Law. Yes, it is the job of the Federal government to enforce immigration law, but when a state is under siege and one of its cities is the kidnapping capital of the world, action must be taken. Arizona like any state should act in order to force the Federal government to do its job. Let us not forget that the Federal governments #1 job is to secure the sovereignty of the USA and protect its people.
I am not cold hearted. I want the best for my people and the people of this great Nation. I am very proud to be an American and I want the same for anyone who desires to live out their days here in the states. I do not however, agree with unlawful entry into our nation. Additionally, it disappoints me that immigrants would enter illegally and commit crimes against the tax payers. This is a double dose of " you pushed your luck too far."
Truthfully, it saddens me to hear of the treatment of Mexican immigrants by the human traffickers. It is inhumane to live in a basement or a holding house with ten, twenty other people because you're being hidden. That is no way to live for any person! I think the "system" by which immigrants earned citizenship should be less bureaucratic. I am not saying it should be the simplest task, but the current process is mind boggling. If we create a better process, then we would not have to resort to these measures to protect our borders. We could stand behind the Statue of Liberty and welcome immigrants with her inscription that reads "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." Earn your citizenship and we welcome you with open arms.
