What’s the point of passing laws that state crossing the border is a criminal act if you aren’t going to enforce them, and then are going to just allow the lawbreakers to make themselves at home feasting on the carcass of what used to be America? – LM
I hope every single state bordering Mexico passes a law that requires resident aliens to carry their green card to properly identify themselves. As a US citizen, you are not required to carry id, but if you get stopped by the men in paramilitary black, you will be their ‘guest’ until they are satisfied that there isn’t some way to squeeze some revenue from your “criminal ***”. Is there a difference? Resident aliens are guests in our country, and should behave accordingly.
Once again, where is the logic in a segment of the population hammering Arizona for passing a law when the impetus for such a law was Mexican criminals, and the failure of the feds to do their mandated duty. Regular Americans are taking a beating for abiding by the rule of law, while the criminals get portrayed as the victims.
This whole situation eerily reminds me of the feds ignoring New Orleans during Katrina. The situation in the border states has become critical, but because we don’t see bodies floating in water on CNN, everybody thinks that the kidnappings, murders, slave trafficking, and drug trade aren’t that big a deal. What is it going to take to close the border; losing an entire American town to a mexican drug cartel? Granting illegal alien criminals, (not undocumented immigrants), amnesty is only going to make this dire situation worse.
A Republican Texas lawmaker plans to introduce a tough immigration measure similar to the new law in Arizona, a move state Democrats say would be a mistake.
Rep. Debbie Riddle of Tomball said she will push for the law in the January legislative session, according to Wednesday’s editions of the San Antonio Express-News and Houston Chronicle.
