Arizona Immigration Law SB 1070 (pdf file)
Did IQ's Just Suddenly Drop In This Country?It never ceases to amaze me just how ignorant and single minded people can be sometimes. Ignorant, as in not educating themselves and looking at the big picture. Our country's borders are being overrun with illegal aliens and the hue and cry is "racism" when a state tries to do something about it? It sure doesn't look like our country is going to address the issue!
Racism or Rabble Rousing?This issue isn't about racism as the criers would have you believe. It's about breaking the established laws of immigration that were already on the books, but that no one was willing to uphold. Are you wondering why not? Well...with elections not that far away, those politicos in the running want the Latino vote. There's power in those numbers and votes, and they will do anything to get it.
I left a comment on Laurence Overmire's Facebook post saying that my ancestors came here legally, learned to speak the language and were productive citizens of this country. Conversely, I also have some ancestors who were Native American and so I could make the case too that those very immigrants who came here legally arrived and settled, but in the process caused the deaths, directly or indirectly, of those who were here 'first'. One of Overmire's commentors chastised me for saying the first statement in this paragraph, never taking into consideration the latter one could be possible too.
