Stand Up for Arizona-Pat Buchanan

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Major demonstrations are to be held in 70 cities on May 1 to protest the new Arizona law to cope with an army of half a million illegal aliens now living there.

Since Gov. Jan Brewer signed that law a week ago, Arizona has been subjected to savage attack as the modern embodiment of Jim Crow, apartheid and Nazism. Few have risen in her defense.

In San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., moves are afoot to boycott Arizona and cancel conventions to break the state, as it was broken when Arizona declined to set aside a holiday for Martin Luther King.

Republican leaders like Jeb Bush, Karl Rove and even the rising Marco Rubio of Florida have declared themselves "troubled" or "concerned" and washed their hands of Arizona, which suggests they have not read the law -- or the party remains captive to country-club political correctness.

In a particularly offensive smear, Mexican President Felipe Calderon charged Arizona with opening the door "to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement."

The federal government has created the immigration problem.

Arizona is forced to react to that problem.

Now the Federal government thinks they have justification to ride in with the Solution...not to enforce existing immigration law. But to enact amnesty for all those who are in this country illegally...the intended Solution all along.

And the masses fall for it time and time again..

PROBLEM REACTION SOLUTION, the oldest trick in the book.

Because the federal

Because the federal government refuses to enforce the laws already on the books, because politicians instead talk about "immigration reform" AKA amnesty for illegals already here, the state of Arizona has decided to do what the federal government won't do. And I think we should all congratulate Governor Brewer for taking charge.

Washington as usual, is the source of the problem, not the solution. We need to see more of this. Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way!

Did anyone notice that the media isn't commenting on all the hateful demonstrations being organized across the nation? What is really funny is calling the Arizona law "racist" by La Raza, Spanish for "The Race". Wouldn't than make La Raza the Spanish version of the KKK?

There is nothing racist about enforcing laws that are on the books concerning our immigration laws. This nation LEGALLY admits more immigrants than the rest of the world combined. We need to have some type of control over our borders. And that's a good job for our military - protecting OUR borders, not the borders of nations thousands of miles away.

Refusing to enforce our immigration laws by the federal government is not an isolated phenomenon. Add to that government forms printed in Spanish, and treaties like NAFTA, and you get to see the big picture: the destruction of our national borders and our national sovereignty.

Arizona Law

What is RP's stance on this measure?

I think Arizona had to do something and this may or may not be the correct the response but they have little help controlling the border and crime is spiking up - can't they put the guard on the border?

are there any other suggestions what could of and can be done about the trespassing?

I think if someone is arrested for a crime they should devulge where they are from and whether or not they are a citizen..otherwise how would they know how about legally proceeding?

Would that not be normal in any country?

You could not have it both ways..ie. maintaining sovereignty/independence and/or accepting the benefits of citizenship. Though the question what citizenship really entails should also be expanded upon. ie. What is an American and its accompanying responsibilities by countrymen or women and government?

This a an excellent and

This a an excellent and factual article. However, don't expect too many on this forum to agree, including the owner.

He was the first one to post a thread on the new AZ law and the title started with "Papers Please."

Nothing in the new Az law remotely mirrors anything that was going on in 1930's Germany. Yet all those who disagree with this law would have those who are too lazy to read the law or are unable to comprehend it, to think it does.

I can only think of a few reasons why all the push back on this law.

1. Those complaining about it either are employing illegals aliens in their business or in their home.

2. Or they are in this country illegally.

3. Or they have relatives who are in this country illegally.

We all know why the politicians are against it...votes.

And as far as some of the churches go it's...money.

"Stand With Arizona (and Against Illegal Immigration)"

At least some opposition to the Arizona law also stems from (misplaced in my opinion) ideological principles.

Here's a very active facebook page generating support for the new law:
