Don't Let Them Fool You

Amnesty agenda exposed by Tom Tancredo

Now, to the facts. The Arizona law, SB 1070, merely makes a state crime what is already a federal crime. For example, the requirement that legal aliens carry their documentation on their person is already in federal law. All of the provisions of the law were crafted carefully to avoid any conflict with federal law. It specifically prohibits stopping anyone based solely on race or ethnicity. The Arizona law does not attempt to create any new immigration law; it simply gives state law enforcement agencies the power to enforce existing laws and arrest persons who are in the country unlawfully.

The federal government refuses to enforce the law.

The lie about border security was actually exposed on March 27 when Arizona rancher Rob Krentz was murdered by a Mexican drug smuggler whose tracks were followed back to the border. Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano had spoken only one day earlier in Arizona about the great progress in border security.

But the murder of Rob Krentz was only the last straw for Arizona citizens who have been under siege for a decade. No one in Arizona thinks the border is secure, and now that Arizona has served notice to the federal government about the condition of their borders, all America knows that ugly truth.

The truth about the dismal state of border security is a story that has been kept off the front pages – until Arizona said "enough!" That’s the real reason the amnesty lobby is so frantic and furious in its attack on the Arizona law. What the critics really want is for Americans to forget about the border-region chaos, forget about the drop houses, the kidnappings, the gang wars, the highway carnage.

But Arizona will not let us forget, and for that message, all American ought to be grateful.
