There is no doubt that Arizona’s SB 1070 is controversial. The question is where does all that controversy come from? We are told over and over that the law is motivated by racism, creates intolerance, promotes profiling, targets Mexicans, and encourages harassment; a whole list of evil things. Liberal leaders from Molina to Pelosi, Baca to Holder, Villaraigosa to Obama proclaim that the law is “unconstitutional” and “anti-immigrant”.
Now the L.A. County Board of Supervisors has joined the parade on a rhetorical call to boycott Arizona, along with San Francisco, L.A. and a few others. I say “rhetorical” because among L.A.’s imports from Arizona are 24% of electricity and much of our water; exports include thousands of our jail inmates. None of these are being returned to sender. The boycott is political, not legalistic or humanitarian, because these billion dollar contracts will not be canceled. It will probably hurt the little guy, Arizonans of every race who run small businesses to raise their families.
On May 28th the Congressional Hispanic Caucus jumped on the bandwagon. Your "representatives" sent a letter (on nice, taxpayer-funded stationery!), demanding that the Department of Homeland Defense cut ties with he State of Arizona, because the adoption of SB1070. It appears that this group is "ignorant" of Constitutional and legal responsibilities of government.
When pressured, virtually every detractor states that they never actually read the actual law. Officials say they have never even been briefed on it. How can this be? Why would they attack an American State without knowing any facts? Because, if they did, they would be pinned down by its language. SB1070 specifically prohibits every one of those nasty things, with penalties for violations. It actually strengthens federal and Constitutional protections for those investigated. It would be easier to mis-use any other law on the books, if some bad cop wanted to. Millions of Americans have read it for themselves, and various polls show that 51-78% understand and approve of SB1070. Other states are copying it.
So, it’s better for “leaders” and celebrities to claim ignorance, if they want to play up to illegal aliens and leftists. It’s likely that all of them studied SB1070 hoping to find flaws, so “ignorance” does not apply. Lying is the fact of the matter, to whether to promote Socialist ideology or protect lucrative deals. Their lies anger both humanitarians they have deceived and those that know the truth. They also promote the ongoing invasion of the U.S., access for terrorists, importation of drugs and guns, violent crime, and abuse - - of citizens and illegals alike - - by the human traffickers.
