Conflater in Chief — it’s the border stupid

The Conflater in Chief a/k/a President Obama continues to foist confusion on the public in every speech about immigration. He never talks about the border as a problem as in border security, but conflates “immigration reform” with doing something about the flood of people crossing our border from the South. Why am I writing about this? We’ll see. Continue reading “Conflater in Chief — it’s the border stupid”

All you ever wanted to know about federal implied preemption but were afraid to ask

Protest against SB 1070 in Minnesota

[no_toc]Widespread interest exists in the Arizona law known as “S.B. 1070” which may be about to get to the US Supreme Court.  The constitutional question is one of federal implied preemption. Of course, this interest is acute in Texas and the Southwest but I would think that states formerly thinking they were immune from the problems of illegal immigration now realize that it’s everywhere.

We’re now safe from terrorists and human rights violations

The feds have finally protected our borders.  Thousands of people have been approached for identification which resulted in their arrest for being in the U.S. illegally.  On television tonight one saw the cuffs going on and the paddy-wagon being loaded.

Meanwhile, human rights violations are being purged.

Only a few problems with this scenario.  The illegal immigrants are being caught at the Canadian border with the U.S. while the human rights violations are those imagined by Secretary of State Hilary Clinton (who’s reported it to the United Nations) in the sovereign State of Arizona where the State is trying to stop the dangerous illegal immigrants crossing from the border with Mexico — where the feds won’t do it!  I guess they’re too busy protecting us from French Canadians.  Good thing. French is harder to learn than is Spanish.

Speaking of the border with Mexico. Remember the mass grave with 72 bodies found? Of 31 who had initially been identified, NONE were from Mexico. They weren’t from Canada either. Try Guatemala, Honduras, and other countries.
