Update: Show your support for Arizona with a state flag on your Twitter and Facebook profile pics.
No, it’s not a Harry Potter convention. It’s a rally to support Arizona.
Although a majority of Americans supports Arizona’s common-sense immigration law, liberal politicians and mainstream media are determined to demonize the beleaguered border state. And for what? Why are they so critical of a state’s reasonable attempt to protect law-abiding taxpayers? Maddening.
Supporters (and protesters, I’m sure – ICE, you may want to stop by) will gather this Saturday beginning at 3 p.m. PST at the Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix to listen to men like former House members Tom Tancredo, a pro-enforcement American after my own heart, and J.D. Hayworth, author of Whatever It Takes: Illegal Immigration, Border Security, And the War on Terror. (I highly recommend his book, which I reviewed in 2006.)
By the way, if you haven’t read Arizona’s SB 1070 (PDF), you should, at least Article 8, Enforcement of Immigration Laws, which begins on the second page. There is nothing remotely unfair about it. I hope other states pass similar laws.
As you’ve read, our Department of Justice is considering filing a lawsuit against Arizona. Our government may sue a state for trying to alleviate the burden of illegal aliens, whose presence the federal government has ignored all these years. I’m sure the lawyers at DOJ know they’d have to sue California, too, as the state has a similar immigration law on the books.
