The absolute absurdity of our President has been reaffirmed today. The man is a walking example of everything that is wrong with our politic today. Uninformed and uncaring about how systems should actually work, Barack just meanders through his version of public opinion and attached unto the vein of the populist.
The Mexican President is here to visit with Barack. Of course, during the visit, Arizona would have to come up. How could it not? And rather than try to speak to the Mexican President with respect for one of his States, Barack took the opportunity to continue his offensive on a law that I am sure he hasn’t had time to read.
Obama also stepped up his criticism of Arizona’s controversial immigration law Wednesday, calling it “misdirected” and warning that it has the potential to be applied in a discriminatory fashion.
The controversy over the Arizona law, which would make it a state crime to be in the country illegally, hung over Calderon’s visit. Both leaders oppose the law, with Obama directing the Justice Department to review it for possible civil rights violations
Listen. Even if our Apologizer in Chief is correct, even IF the Arizona law is bad legislation,, Man Law dictates that what a responsible Man does is keep such business in-house. It is simply UNACCEPTABLE to stand with a foreign leader and dress down a state. And Barack should know that. And the fact that he doesn’t is disturbing.
Further evidence of disturbing is Obama’s direction to the Justice Department.. He wants them to review it for possible civil rights violations. Again, this would prove to be a daunting task for the Justice Department considering that they haven’t read the bill themselves. Very simply, Arizona contains nothing that the Federal law doesn’t already contain. In fact, Arizona is more lenient:
A PERSON IS PRESUMED TO NOT BE AN ALIEN WHO IS UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES IF THE PERSON PROVIDES TO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER OR AGENCY ANY OF THE FOLLOWING
1. A VALID ARIZONA DRIVER LICENSE.
2. A VALID ARIZONA NONOPERATING IDENTIFICATION LICENSE.
3. A VALID TRIBAL ENROLLMENT CARD OR OTHER FORM OF TRIBAL IDENTIFICATION.
4. IF THE ENTITY REQUIRES PROOF OF LEGAL PRESENCE IN THE UNITED STATES BEFORE ISSUANCE, ANY VALID UNITED STATES FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTIFICATION.
That’s pretty straight forward. And easy.
In fact, I can’t remember the last time I went for ice cream without my driver license:
President Obama: “If you are a Hispanic-American in Arizona, your great-grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state. But now suddenly, if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re gonna be harassed. That’s something that could potentially happen. That’s not the right way to go.”
