Liberals and leftists are celebrating US district judge Susan Bolton’s decision to issue a preliminary injunction preventing several sections of Arizona’s new law on illegal immigration from taking hold.
Key portions of the law that will not go into effect under Bolton’s ruling include, according to USA Today, the part(s) that:
…requires an officer to make a reasonable attempt to determine the immigration status of a person stopped, detained or arrested if there’s reasonable suspicion he or she is in the country illegally.
• The section that creates a crime of failure to apply for or carry “alien-registration papers.”
• Language that makes it a crime for illegal immigrants to solicit, apply for or perform work. (This does not include the section on day laborers.)
• The part that allows for a warrantless arrest of a person where there is probable cause to believe he or she has committed a public offense that makes them removable from the USA. (end of excerpt)
Bolton‘s decision likely will be appealed to the very liberal 9th Circuit Court.
Open-borders advocates’ celebrations will prove to be premature, however. Because this decision only is going to keep the issue on the front burner for months to come, with Democrats coming down on the wrong side of yet another issue for a large majority of voters across the country next November.
And while the law continues to allow police to refer those actually convicted of a crime to federal officials, ‘sanctuary city’ policies and other obstructions from the left are seeking to thwart virtually all enforcement efforts against illegals.
Indeed Bolton’s ruling is a temporary win for those who wish to grant every right and every benefit of every doubt to every illegal alien and terrorist – like Constitutional rights for terror trials – yet are oblivious to the rights of American citizens to live in peace and security in their own homes.
Just ask the widow of Robert Krentz, the Arizona rancher whose murder is strongly suspected of being the handiwork of an illegal alien. There has been not one single peep out of the Obama administration about Krentz’s killing.
Because Krentz is an American citizen who works hard and pays taxes, that is why. Apparently Mr. Krentz has no right to live securely on his own property because, heaven forbid, he is white, he is an American, he speaks English and he owns land in Arizona.
Where are all the lawsuits by Obama & Co. over Krentz’s death, giving police new powers to crack down on the mountain of crime committed by illegals?
There are none, just as the hard political left in America, in the person of Eric Holder and other radicals with White House ties, are using every tool in the book to empower illegals, terrorists and voting rights violators like the New Black Panthers at the expense of legal American citizens like Robert Krentz and his surviving family; 9/11 victims and their surviving families; and law-abiding voters who wish to enter a polling station in Philadelphia without harassment from a bigoted black male wielding a billy club.
Obama and his far-left compatriots have a plan for America: Undermine, destabilize, repeat.
It won’t work. America is quietly keeping score. And this Arizona ruling will only stoke the fires of the majority that is angry at the uncontrolled border and the rapes, robberies and murders committed by people who are not even citizens of our nation, yet who are living here with minimal scrutiny, accessing our hospitals, schools and government programs, then screaming for mama when they are found out, arrested or deported.
Immigration would not be a big issue if the situation were not out of control, kind of like the concert promoter who tolerates a few sneaks. But once the fences are down, the promoter starts to lose everything. And that is the point that America is at right now.
Other groups filing suits include the American Civil Liberties Union, Phoenix and Tucson police officers, municipalities, illegal immigrants and non-profit groups.
So who, pray tell, is representing average legal citizens of the United States who are victimized by illegal alien crime and depressed wages from cheap labor?
Only the Arizona legislature with its law, which is under assault from the left and the Ancient Media. Otherwise Americans are being told to take a hike.
Pro-illegal Phoenix vice mayor Michael Nowakowski said, “You can’t have 50 states doing their own version of immigration law. We have federal laws for a reason.”
Yes, correct, if the federal government were enforcing the laws in the first place. Which it is not.
“Polls are for politicians and for elections, they’re not for civil rights and human rights,” said Nowakowski in response to polls that show high support levels within Arizona for the law. He said that such public opinion polls probably would have prevented voting rights for blacks and women. Which is a pure Democrat misdirection. Because first and foremost, the blacks and women in question were citizens of this country. But don’t let that little factoid get in the way of a good hissy-fit.
Republican congressman Darrell Issa, a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the ranking member of the House committee on oversight and government reform, said in a statement that ‘the federal government has a right and a responsibility to enforce existing laws, but when they fail to meet that responsibility, we should not stand in the way of the states that take action to respond to the very real threat of border violence, drug cartels and human smuggling. The people who live under the constant threat of border violence have every right to be protected and have every right to defend themselves, their families and their communities.’
David Gonzales, a US marshal in Arizona, whose agency is charged with security at the Phoenix federal courthouse, warned about protesters after Bolton‘s ruling. “When you have situations like this, emotions are running high on both ends, so the potential for violence is high,” he said.
Violence? What violence? Could that be the same violence that is gushing like a gaping wound from the illegal alien community every single day, and being ignored by Obama and his lawsuit-happy cronies at the Department of Justice?
Yes. And the same Democrats cheering Bolton’s ruling are ignoring that crime wave, much to the alarm of increasing numbers of Americans, the people who live here legally, work hard and pay their taxes every day of the year. And who are going to vote in huge numbers like never before next November on election day.
