John Fanning: Obama and Mexico join forces

President Obama has joined the Mexican government against the citizens of Arizona asking a federal judge to block Arizona’s new law aimed at illegal immigration from taking effect.

Obama’s actions are a slap in the face to the over 70 percent of the citizens of Arizona who support the law. Illegal immigrants are costing the state $1.7 billion a year. The border is not secure. Drugs are flowing freely. Phoenix is the second largest kidnapping city in the world. Killings are occurring along the border. People do not feel safe.

One may ask: Where do I get my information about the conditions in AZ, especially along the border? I live 35 miles from the border town of Nogales. Residents of my community have experienced first hand the results of an unsecured border and the federal government’s unwillingness to enforce existing federal immigration laws. We the citizens of Arizona elected our state representatives and our governor. Mr. Obama, along with the Mexican government, are seeking to put our safety at further risk.

Obama and his henchman, Eric Holder, without even reading the 10-page law, falsely characterized it for their own political gain. Damn the residents of Arizona who are getting killed. Damn the fear among many. Damn the amount of money the state has to spend because the borders are not secure. The hell with the fact the federal government, Obama, has chosen not to enforce the existing federal laws. Before you support Obama and the Mexican government’s actions against the citizens of Arizona, and before you buy into the lies and distortion he and his minions have put forth about the law, please Google: aslegislaturesb1070.

There is no question the policy of this administration is to promote amnesty for illegal immigrants. According to Senator Russell Pearce of Mesa AZ., “they are aiding and abetting the enemy.”
