- President Barack Obama scratched his head. Congress
shook its collective cranium. The media, always chastising the American
public as to its 'racist' treatment of illegal aliens living and working
inside America-shuddered under the latest Washington-based PEW report:
73 percent of Americans support Arizona's anti-illegal alien bill-SB 1070.
- The bill mirrors federal laws and allows law enforcement
in Arizona to arrest, detain and turn over to Immigration, Customs and
Enforcement officers the estimated 460,000 illegal aliens living in Arizona.
An illegal must be caught for a lawless infraction before he or she can
be pulled over. Additionally, the law pursues employers with strong consequences
of fines and jail time.
- As pro-illegal alien supporters march in the street demanding
amnesty-more and more Americans react in opposition. Americans
want their borders secured.
- For 30 years, five presidents and every U.S. Congress
in session failed to enforce laws on the books. As a result, 20 million
illegal aliens wander around the United States with forged, stolen or phony
IDs and Social Security cards. They work, live and operate in the shadows.
They remain outside the American mainstream.
- But, they tap into $346 billion annually in American
taxpayer benefits across 15 federal agencies: 'free' education for their
children K-12, 'free' breakfast and lunch programs K-12, 'free' English
as a second language instruction, 'free' prenatal care and birth costs
for over 400,000 pregnant illegal alien mothers annually, 'free' assisted
housing, 'free' food and housing for over 350,000 illegal criminal aliens
residing in U.S. prisons.
- While the media waxes emotionally about all of the illegals
coming to America for a "better life", the American people grow
angrier as 20 million of them arrived ILLEGALLY. They jumped the line
in front of millions that wait legally to attempt to immigrate into America
legally. The illegals break the mores of this society's foundation: the
rule of law.
- "Strikingly, nearly half of the democrats polled
liked the law, under which local law enforcement officers are tasked with
verifying peoples' immigration status if they suspect them of being in
the country illegally," said Margaret Talev, reporter for McClatchy
newspapers. "While the Democratic Party is regarded as more sympathetic
to the plight of illegal immigrants, 49 percent said they would favor the
law's passage in their own states."
- That study shows the resentment sweeping across the nation
as illegals usurp jobs, overwhelm schools, bankrupt hospitals and degrade
wages for America's middle class and minorities that summer the most.
- "In addition," said Talev, "69 percent
of Americans said they wouldn't mind if police officers stopped them to
ask for proof of citizenship or legal right to be in the country."
- The poll results show that Congress will not be able
to pass an amnesty without a growing uproar over legalizing those that
arrived illegally. It violates Americans' basic understanding of the rule
of law. The biggest organization in the nation to stop massive illegal
and legal immigration, www.NumbersUSA.com with Roy Beck, enjoys over
1.0 million members and some days, they add 7,000 to 9,000 members as the
issue heats up in Congress. During the June 2007 amnesty attempt,
Beck's members melted the phone lines with over 1.5 million phone calls
and over 2.0 million faxes within five days. The bill suffered defeat.
- Another aspect of the illegal alien migration question:
Tea Party phenomenon. Angry voters expect to vote out incumbents because
they tire of 'career' politicians that do nothing year after year, decade
after decade, i.e., U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer, Robert Byrd, John McCain,
Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Jon Kyle, Arlen Specter, Carl Levin-all
of them ineffective, out of touch with the American people and dead wood.
- After decades of abuse, non-compliance and disregard
of border security-Americans expect to show their voting power in November
by throwing the rascals out.
