Racial Preference Over Profiling


Visit Newsreal

The word illegal means forbidden by law, so why the heat in Arizona over its crackdown on illegal immigration? The real problem is that Arizona’s enforcement measures came too late.  Allow a stranger with no fixed address to get comfy in your house, he’s there to stay unless you take measures to remove him.    You let a swarm in, you’re trounced, like what happened in Arizona, now stuck with nearly a half a million illegal immigrants. Many of them are responsible for violent crime, while the ‘race-card jockeys’ manipulate this sensitive political rally point, screaming racial profiling and discrimination.  But who cares about the innocent victims?  Not agenda-driven Democrats, willing to pave their path to power with the life blood of hardworking Americans.

President Barack Obama recently made an explicit appeal for race-based support saying he wanted to,

“reconnect with young people, African-Americans, Latinos and women who powered our victory in 2008 to stand together once again.”

Where’s inclusivity here?  The pendulum has swung and the line in the sand drawn.  America is becoming more racially divided and the Obama administration is deepening the wedge.  Obama has called the new Arizona law “misguided”, while Democratic Congressman Raul Grijalva has shockingly appealed to the federal government to not co-operate when local police pick up illegal immigrants. Tempting for opponents of the new immigration bill to see this as a brand of justified civil disobedience.  Hardly. So let’s turn a blind eye to illegal immigration.   Fling the doors wide open to illegal immigrants–not only in Mexico–but everywhere.  Why discriminate and racially profile people.  Just allow racial preference instead.

America wake up.  All eyes are watching.  If Arizona gives in now, it will send a loud message that it’s party time for all potential illegal immigrants everywhere.  Given economic constraints and the war on terror, this makes no sense.  This must not be about appeasement in the short term, but what’s best for honest, hard-working citizens and their children in the long term.

From CBS:

Two decades ago, when Arizona voters rejected a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the NFL yanked the Super Bowl from suburban Phoenix. The boycott marked a major turning point in the journey to nationwide acceptance of the King holiday.

Today, Arizona, a state full of travelers from across the Americas, is being boycotted again over a new immigration law said to encourage racial profiling. Yet just as the King debate changed hearts from average people to a president, Arizona’s troubles are positioned to again play a critical role in the twisting evolution of American race relations. AP

The America we’re seeing today is a counterfeit to what Dr. Martin Luther King envisioned when he gave his awe-inspiring “I have a Dream” speech, envisioning racial harmony for America.  This is not about racism, it’s about illegal immigration, period.

    JimC: Its presumed lack of efficacy is due to the watered-down nature of the bill so that it would get passed. PC rules this nation to the point that laws are subservient to it. But it is a start.

    Drop the hammer on employers hiring illegals and cutoff all government monies for welfare for illegals so that the states must cover the costs and then we'll see some action.

    Here's the thing about profiling: if I were in law enforcement, I would profile. You have to. I wouldn't talk about it. (I feel kinda the same about "enhanced interrogation" in the military). But you can't use it as a reason to pull someone over. You are asking for a lot of legal trouble, particularly when you start stopping citizens because they "look" illegal.

    At any rate, the problem with Arizona's law is efficacy–another whack-a-mole policy that's gonna cost a lot of money for negligible results other than the "good people" of Arizona will feel good about themselves. Doesn't address the underlying economics at all.

    These border states have been screaming loudly for years to a deaf federal government. Arizona hit the breaking point and finally enacted something. What exactly is the big deal about letting the police ask the question about citizenship? They do this everywhere in Europe, just try to go to Canada without a passport, and they sure as hell do it in Mexico where being an illegal is a felony offense. This is all about politics and economics. Potential votes at stake and who will mow the yard. Seal the border and most definitely drop the hammer on those who employ illegals. We already have enough laws on the books to deal with this issue, we just need to enforce them.

    Racism is the granting of and/or withholding of privileges and/or punishments based on a person's race. Examples would be: affirmative action in the workplace and in admissions to schools based in race, moratorium on negro executions in Maryland, non-enforcement of immigration laws, toleration of out of control behavior of black youth in schools and in public places.
