So Arizona has just enacted a law making it illegal to be an illegal alien in their state. Now how much of a shame is it that Arizona's Governor had
to take this drastic action because the Federal government was not willing to do its job in the first place?
Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and
on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
Obama Blasts Pending Arizona Immigration Law: "Irresponsibility"
President Obama used a naturalization ceremony in the Rose Garden to lash out at the Arizona Legislature for passing a bill requiring proof of legal
status and empowering state and local police to stop people based on a suspicion of being illegal immigrants.
Obama called for comprehensive immigration reform and said Washington's failure to act has bred a climate of fear and retribution in some border
states. He singled out the Arizona bill - which would make it crime to be in the state without documentation - now before Republican Gov. Janice
Brewer. The governor has until Saturday to decide whether to sign it, veto it or allow it to become law without her signature.
"Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others," Obama said. "That includes, for example,
the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between
police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe."
Obama said the administration will "closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation."
In the meantime a mini riot is forming on the steps of the Arizona Capitol building which the Federal government is monitoring closely. Does one not
see the potential for the martial law scenario here, all of which would have been unnecessary if they had just done their job to begin with but maybe
that's been the game plan all along.
