Arizona’s new immigration statute authorizes law enforcement authorities to check the citizenship of anyone they believe to be in the country illegally
He stopped abruptly to speak to the audience:
Listen to the question before you boo.
Continuing the question, he asked:
Critics say this may amount to racial profiling. Do you think that this should be mandated by the state or by the federal government?
In a straight-forward manner, Ms. Woolard responded that she’s a “huge believer in state’s rights,” and added that she thinks that’s “what’s so wonderful about America.”
So I think it’s perfectly fine for Arizona to create that law, and I’m against illegal immigration but I’m also against racial profiling so I see both sides in this issue.
The crowd’s reaction was a mixture of supportive cheers and self-righteous boos. She wound up as runner-up behind a beautiful young lady of Lebanese descent from Dearborn, Michigan who tripped on her evening gown and stated that birth control should be supplied by the government because it’s “expensive” and “a controlled substance”. Spare me.
In a seemingly unrelated story, the United States and China played verbal ping pong last week, during only their second round of talks about human rights since 2002.
The Obama administration wants to nudge Beijing into treating its citizens like human beings instead of like cattle, but, at the same time, it also needs Chinese support on Iranian and North Korean nuclear standoffs, climate change and other difficult issues.
Trying to reach a shared vision, Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner voluntarily brought up the new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person’s immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.
This brilliant diplomat said that they did not want to whitewash the American record.
Jon Huntsman, U.S. ambassador to China who was in Washington, explained to reporters earlier Friday that the rights talks are a useful way to get results on tough issues.
We’re talking about issues that are uncomfortable, quite frankly, but it is a sign of maturity that we can talk about specific cases.
Excuse me? Apologizing for the laws of our country to our country’s enemies is not mature. It’s treason, sedition, and stupidity, all rolled up into one pseudo-intellectual, Progressive little package.
Speaking of illegal immigrants, it was also announced yesterday that a U.S. immigration court had granted asylum to President Barack Obama’s Aunt Zeituni.
The decision comes three months after Kenya native Zeituni Onyango, the half-sister of Obama’s late father, testified at a closed hearing in Boston, arriving in a wheelchair accompanied by two doctors who testified in support of her case.
The public has not been, and probably never will be, told the basis for her asylum request. People who seek asylum in America must show that they face persecution in their homeland on the basis of religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a social group.
Aunt Zeituni’s lawyer, Margaret Wong, claimed last year that Onyango first applied for asylum “due to violence in Kenya.” In a November interview with The Associated Press, Onyango said she was disabled and was learning to walk again after being paralyzed from Guillain-Barre syndrome, an autoimmune disorder.
Onyango arrived in the United States in 2000. Her first asylum request was rejected, and she was ordered deported in 2004. She ignored that order and continued to live in public housing in Boston.
Gosh. She must have relatives in high places.
For over 2 hundred years, people from foreign lands have arrived on the shores of America, seeking freedom and the opportunity to better their lives. They were drawn to the limitless future that America promised, as symbolized by Lady Liberty herself, greeting them as they arrived in the New World. They saw the light from her torch reflected from that shining city on the hill. They wanted to be legal citizens of the United States and rightfully claim their share of the American Dream.
Now, however, it’s a different story. There are strangers in our house. They did not ask permission to come in our front door. They sneaked in through the back door. They have embraced all the priviledges of American life, while accepting none of the responsibilities. They expect us to learn their language and want us to fly our flag in a subordinate position to theirs.
All the while, our Federal Government is condoning this breaking and entering. Then, when a state passes a law to protect their citizens, after a good man gets murdered by one of these intruders, the government not only condemns the state and makes fun of it, they apologize to our enemies for the action .
We truly are dealing with an Un-American Administration. Blatant illegality by foreign nationals is embraced as a civil rights issue and a murderous Communist Regime is bowed and apologized to.
Pass the Tylenol.
I leave you now with a final thought from the great Ray Stevens:
