Whose country is this?

Quote:
What is the response of Barack Obama, who took an oath to see to it that federal laws are faithfully executed?

He is siding with the law-breakers. He is pandering to the ethnic lobbies. He is not berating a Mexican regime that aids and abets this invasion of the country of which he is commander in chief. Instead, he attacks the government of Arizona for trying to fill a gaping hole in law enforcement left by his own dereliction of duty.

He has denounced Arizona as "misguided." He has called on the Justice Department to ensure that Arizona's sheriffs and police do not violate anyone's civil rights. But he has said nothing about the rights of the people of Arizona who must deal with the costs of having hundreds of thousands of lawbreakers in their midst

The Arizona immigration law will invariably lead to brown Hispanic AMERICANS being stopped and questioned and forced to provide proof of citizenship despite not doing anything illegal or breaking any laws.

Obama is right to criticize this afront to liberty. Arizona made a mockery of the bill of rights by passing this law.

Here is a truck driver who was forced to prove he is a citizen despite no proof existing that he is here illegaly. The only reason he was singled out is because he either is or looks like a non White Hispanic.

The guy even provided his commercial driver's license and social security number but that wasn't enough for the authorities. His wife had to leave work, go home and grab his birth certificate.

Both husband and wife were BORN HERE, so they are Americans.

This particualr case isn't about the Arizona Law, which hasn't even started yet. I dont' know the details about this, they are lacking, so I can't comment on it.

but the police did profile him though. What reason did they have to ask for his birth certificate? What driving infraction requires one to show a birth certificate? When and if the Arizona law passes, cases like this will become much more commonplace.

I don't know. And either do you, that's my point.
Personally, I don't get the BC thing. You can be born elsewhere and still be a citizen of the US or otherwise be here legally.

That takes us back to the question. Why was he harassed and asked to produce birth certificate, to address something that his CDL didn't?

I guess Johnson shouldn't have fought for civil rights reform. You know, that was a state law, that had segregation as a policy.

The President is against this law, because its unconstitutional, not because he is pro illegal immigration.

"Whose country is this?"

Isn't this clear enough yet? This country is the exclusive property of gun toting, bible thumping, anti-intellectual, conservative white people. It is only by their mercy that others may reside in their country.
How can anyone living in America not know this?

Which of the last ten presidents has a better record, out of curiosity.

The Arizona legislature has better ways to enforce laws than adopting blatantly unconstitutional legislation (unconstitutional because it annuls the "probable cause" standard, that's not even touching the quasi-racial aspects of it.)

Immigration was a major issue in 2006. Why then-president Bush and his normally pliable Republican congress did nothing about it then is something you can ask them. And, for that matter, all the presidents and congresses going back to 1986.
