As of today, the Arizona Immigration Law has taken effect. Also as of today, the federal government has taken that law and torn the heart and soul of it to shreds, declaring most of it unconstitutional. We would like to make one thing abundantly clear today, and that is this: We stand with Arizona!
Every disabled American should stand with the Arizona immigration law Why? It’s because under our current laws, illegal immigrants go straight to the front of the line when applying for jobs because they are cheap labor. At the same time, disabled Americans are forced to wait in longer lines, jump through more hoops than the average worker, and usually end up without a job. There are handicapped people in this country that would like to work and with the proper training could do the jobs Illegals, or even Guest Workers are doing now on the cheap. Why hire American citizens for minimum wage when illegals can be hired as cheap labor?
This isn’t just a job problem. At present when someone who is disabled seeks assistance from the Government, we can wait in line for months and years at a time. However, with the right forged documents, people who are here illegally can get Social Security, Medicaid, welfare, and food stamps almost instantly. This is putting a major cramp in local, state, and Federal budgets. Emergency Rooms are being flooded and crime continues to rise.
We’ve got a huge problem on our hands and it has been a problem the Feds have refused to solve properly to this point (Amnesty is not an acceptable solution!). So it has been left up to the States and if the Feds won’t do it that’s the way it needs to be handled. That is what Arizona has done and other states are taking the reins too. And now the Feds come back and tell the problem-solvers they can’t do that? WHAT IN THE WIDE WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS IS A-GOIN’ ON HERE?!?!
Americans believe in equal opportunity for its citizens, and this law helps disabled Americans take another step toward achieving that goal. Americans also believe in the rule of law. We don’t hate people for wanting to come to this great Nation of ours. One of the greatest things about our Nation is the “American Melting Pot.” Just follow the law and get in line to become an American citizen. Follow the law. That’s all we ask!
The federal government has proven yet again that it will stand with illegal immigrants before it will stand with the people of its own nation. It’s time that we enforced the rule of law in this nation, and the first step to do that is to secure the border. At present we have no idea who is coming across the border. Terrorists and their weapons could also be sneaking through. It’s time to build that fence and if the Feds won’t do it, it’s time for private industry to get it done with American labor and American materials. I am sure we could get it done within months instead of not getting it done due to the political dragging of feet.
Once we secure the borders, we can build a better and stronger nation. The Arizona law is crucial to securing the border and we must fight to see this law stand. We must also reform the immigration process so that it’s more modern and more efficient.
It’s also time to throw out our current tax code, along with the 16th Amendment. It’s time for The FairTax. One of the great things about the FairTax is the prebate that will be issued to every legal American Citizen, to untax them for the essentials up to the poverty level. Illegals will finally have to pay taxes and will not get the prebate at all. If that’s not persuasion enough to get in line to become legal citizens we don’t know what is!
Finally, if they will not follow the law, we need to send these illegal immigrants back to the country where they came from.
It’s a national security issue, it’s an economic issue, and it’s a national identity issue. If you are a true American that cares about this nation, you will join us in standing with Arizona too. It’s time for solutions NOW!! The Democrats want votes, Republicans want cheap labor. We’re getting nowhere and it is time to stand up and say “NO!!!” We must say “NO!” to Amnesty, “NO!!” to unsolved problems, and “YES!!” to solutions like the Arizona law!
