MO 4CD CP candidate agrees with AZ immigration lawSubmitted by meekandmild on Fri, 05/21/2010 - 10:14
Just a short note to let you all know where I stand on Arizona's SB 1070, the Mexican president's remarks, and our representative's actions and remarks.
First, the Arizona law is a good law. Arizona has an Article IV Section 4 constitutional responsibility to protect its borders from invasion. The federal government has the same responsibility, under the same Article of our Constitution, but has done little or nothing to stop the invasion of illegals, drug smugglers and terrorists from crossing the national borders. In my opinion, the Arizona law didn't go far enough.
Second the Mexican president's remarks are an insult to the law abiding legal residents of Arizona and to the citizens of United States of America. Our government, our representatives, should demand an apology immediately and should have terminated his visit yesterday at the White House. The Mexican president should never have been allowed to address Congress. In my opinion, he should be asked to never return until he apologizes and secures the border from the Mexican side.
Lastly, our representatives acted as if they were representing the interests of Mexico instead of the citizens of the United States. Our representatives shamed us all when they stood and applauded the verbal attack on the great state of Arizona. Our representatives took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the United States from all enemies, foreign or domestic, yet they applauded the Mexican president's insult to our Constitution, national and state laws.
I would like to know if Congressman Ike Skelton, Senator Claire McCaskill and all the others who represent Missouri stood and applauded while US law was being ridiculed, undermined and attacked. I would like to know what my representative's positions are with regard to Arizona's SB 1070 and I would like to know what the candidate's positions are with regard to the Arizona law and illegal immigration. I would like to know where the independent free press is while our nation is under attack. Why isn't the press asking our representatives and candidates their positions on these issues? I intend to call all of my representatives today and I hope you do the same.
My position: The state and federal governments have an Article IV, Section 4 Constitutional responsibility to protect the individual states and the United States from invasion. Illegal immigration is an invasion that threatens our national security. We should deploy the military immediately along our southern borders to defend the United States of America.
