If I had to move tomorrow, and pick any other state to live in except Georgia, I would have to choose Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, or Utah.
One of America’s national organizations fighting against illegal immigration is announcing that 17 states are now filing versions of Arizona’s SB 1070 law which is designed to help local police enforce America’s existing immigration laws.
That’s right. I want to live in a state that tries to make sure that laws are adhered to. No, it has nothing to do with race. It has nothing to do with discrimination. It has nothing to do with racial profiling. I simply want the state I live in to enforce existing law. It really is that simple.
Numerous national and local polls indicated that 60-81% of Americans support local police enforcing immigration laws.
I bet 60-81% of Americans also want their local police to enforce all of the other laws while they’re at it too. Isn’t funny how we try to single out this one law, from one state, rather than address the issue at hand. Our current laws, especially those pertaining to illegal immigration, are not being enforced. What’s wrong with ensuring that those existing laws are actually enforced?
I can’t think of one good reason not to enforce current laws. Not one single reason.
