The United States of America is the greatest nation on earth. Unfortunately, the left does not recognize that. In the name of their so-called "human" and "civil" rights they are on the verge of granting amnesty to some 13 million illegal aliens; essentially ceding American sovereignty to the rest of the world.
America takes pride in our ability to be a free and diverse people that function under the rule of law. With the recent law passed in Arizona that essentially just gives local law enforcement authority to enforce federal immigration law, it seems those in the Whitehouse and Congress are already planning for amnesty. They seem to have taken on the mantra that it is against the law to enforce the law and any form of immigration enforcement is racist. After all, President Obama himself politicized the race card once the law was signed and his very own AG Eric Holder has sent the Justice Department to harass those responsible for enforcing Federal law with absolutely no cause or basis.
So in the face of a strong majority of Americans that support the Arizona law and real enforcement of Federal immigration law the left, again, fights against the will of the people. WorldNetDaily news has reported that the Department of Homeland Security has already drafted a plan to process and give amnesty under the guise of Comprehensive Immigration Reform. While this isn’t surprising considering the terrible job Janet Napolitano has done with securing our Nation, they are out to solve the effect and not the cause. As we all know this will just lead to continual amnesty. We have already sold out our country financially now that the rest of the world owns us. Now we are selling open access to our borders to the rest of the world.
It is one thing for the Federal government to take over huge chunk’s of our economy as they did with healthcare, the Wall Street bailouts, the bank takeovers and stealing control of GM and Chrysler, but to give up our borders is against everything the Federal government has been allowed to do by our Divine Constitution. This is not about human rights nor is it about civil rights. This is about gerrymandering citizenship to retain power. Nothing more. Nothing less.
This is a gross abuse of Federal power. I have been called the angry Constitutionalist in the past, but quite frankly, it doesn’t seem so unreasonable to be angry at this point. They are not just disregarding the Constitution anymore, they are trampling it.
