Open-Borders vs. America

Pages: 1 2

In 2006, CASA de Maryland threatened to protest at the schools of children whose parents belonged to the pro-immigration enforcement group Minuteman Project — and then headed into the Montgomery County, Md., public schools to recruit junior amnesty protesters who were offered school credits for traveling with CASA de Maryland to march on Washington.

As a former Maryland resident, I got to see Perez’s militant friends and colleagues in action. I watched CASA de Maryland President Gustavo Torres (who met with President Obama last week) complain that motor vehicle administration officials have “absolutely no right to ask for people’s Social Security number or immigration status to get a driver’s license.” I stood among CASA de Maryland grievance-mongers who shouted, “No license, no justice! No justice, no peace!” while playing the race card against naturalized Americans and legal immigrants who opposed the illegal alien welfare state.

Perez himself derided secure-borders citizen activists as “xenophobes,” but denied painting the grassroots immigration enforcement movement as racist. Questioned by GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions during his Obama DOJ confirmation hearing last year about the illegal alien rights guide produced by CASA de Maryland, Perez grudgingly stated that “the Civil Rights Division must not act in contravention to valid enforcement actions of our federal immigration laws.” But “act(ing) in contravention” is exactly what the Civil Rights Division is doing in spearheading the challenge to Arizona’s valid enforcement actions of our federal immigration law.

Perez, Attorney General Eric Holder and the rest of the open-borders DOJ team have invoked a “preemption” doctrine based on the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause to attack Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration measure and oppose local and state enforcement of federal immigration laws. Never mind that the Arizona law was drafted scrupulously to comply with all federal statutes and the Constitution.

You gotta love Obama’s fair-weather friends of the Constitution. When a state acts to do the job the feds won’t do, Obama’s legal eagles run to the Founding Fathers for protection. When, on the other hand, left-wing cities across the country pass illegal alien sanctuary policies that flagrantly defy national immigration laws and hamper cross-jurisdiction enforcement, the newfound federal preemption advocates are nowhere in sight.

The Obama DOJ’s lawsuit against Arizona is sabotage of the people’s will and the government’s fundamental responsibility to provide for the common defense. No border enforcement, no security. No security, no peace.

    Why is it that when groups disagree, it is almost always the conservatives, the whites, the Christians, the Americans that have to give in? Let's try another tack. Have Mexico open their borders with their southern neighbors. Have the Muslim countries allow Christians to openly allow Churches to have services in their countries. Let those groups of Christians have their own set of laws and disregard the countrie's laws that they moved to. Demand that those folks not learn the launguage and everyone else change signs, books, television, everything. Let….oh never mind. Why continue? Everyone already knows the answer.

    I am glad they are suing Arizona. The DOJ will lose and then this whole thing is going to cave in which will encourage other states to do the same thing. I am dissapointed that our governor of Texas hasnt had the cojones to do the same thing. Oh he talks tough when its easy, but it seems that most of our courageous people in the republican party are women.

    It will take the Supreme Court to make our Communist-Muslim-Leftie insurgents to realize that we now know them, we don't like them, we disagree with everything they stand for and we want them gone.

    Obama's proposed immigration amnesty (not reform) would grant legal status to the 12 to 20 million undocumented aliens (illegal immigrants) currently living in the United States. An amnesty for illegal aliens forgives their acts of illegal immigration and implicitly forgives other related illegal acts such as driving and working with false documents. The result of an amnesty is that large numbers of foreigners who illegally gained entry into the United States are rewarded with legal status (Green Card) for breaking immigration laws. The first (and supposedly one-time only) amnesty in 1986 gave about 2.8 million illegal immigrations the opportunity to change their status through the Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA). We have gone from 2,8 million to 12 to 20 million illegals getting preferential immigration. What's next, 50 million?

    "CASA de Maryland President Gustavo Torres (who met with President Obama last week) complain that motor vehicle administration officials have absolutely no right to ask for people’s Social Security number or immigration status to get a driver’s license.”
    Yet, my wife, who is a natural born American and has held a drivers license for the past 30+ yrs., had to produce a Social Security Card AND a Marriage Cetificate to renew her Drivers License. Would she have had less of a hassle if she said she was not an American but rather an "Undocumented Alien"?

    What is this silly, bogus argument about the travail of having to show papers? Everyone has to show them: at the library, the swimming pool, the theater, the ball park, the grocery store, etc..

    This isn't immigration…it's an invasion…and our Government is doing little or nothing to stop it. Get serious about voting in people like Gov. Brewer this November. Thanks to Michelle Malkin for keeping us informed. Illegal immigration could totally destabilize our society…especially in the southwest and California…..Vote in COnstitutionalists, and common sense candidates.

    New Mexico, another border state, has bypassed the FEDERAL LAW by giving ILLEGALS driver licenses!

    Sanctuary? New Mexico was the first State in the union to declare itself a Sanctuary State around 1984 concerning Central Americans who were fleeing civil wars that were also supported by then NM Governor, Toney Anaya and then Congressman, Bill Richardson who now as Governor allows ILLEGAL Sanctuary cities and has given permission to give the ILLEGALS the drivers license!

    Also on the table must be the FACT that Bill Richardson is HALF MEXICAN so any analysis of his policies must include this FACT!

    Those that filed the suit should be held financially liable when they lose.

    • Peachey

      Smithie, both the state of Arizona and the Federal government are broke, except for the change that may be found in the sofas cushions,

      • Smith_N_Wesson

        No, I meant personally liable. Obammy and Holder are gonna have to dig the change out of their pockets. I wouldn't ask for this to fall on the tax payers shoulders…

    Treason, treason, treason. Let down the gates and let a hostile force invade your homeland. Treason, treason, treason.

    There are 5 people in this household who agree completely with Gov. Brewer, who are eager to see BO leave forever, who want a spotlight put on groups like La Raza & affiliated people & never removed, who reject BO's version of the law, i.e., bring no charge against voter intimidaters…and so on, & so on, & so on.
    The list rapidly grows long, with each day BO is in office. What a travesty.

    Are the people in the picture really calling for erasing borders and nation states? After a long history of people giving their life to insure national independence? If that is what they want, how about call for a one-world government by the U.N.?
