Federal Anarchy And Illegal Immigration
When did it become acceptable for elected officials who are sworn to uphold and defend the laws of cities, towns, counties, states and the Federal government to pick and choose which laws are enforced?
No matter the administration, those on the right or left side of the aisle, our elected leaders at many levels have failed in their sworn duty to uphold and enforce US law.
Their collective failure is beyond despicable.
In 1989 when the first Immigration Reform Bill became law many promises were made. Found here, in a study of INS numbers it showed that the population of illegal aliens had blossomed in 1997 to 5 million, http://www.cis.org/1996IllegalImmigrantPopulation-INS
In 1989, our government promised to seal the border.
In 1989, our government promised to make sure that all who worked in the United States would be legal citizens or have 'green' cards.
Since 1989, every employer did and still does have to be certain that an
I-9 is on file to prove that the person hired has proper photo identification and a valid Social Security Card, and can legally work in the United States, all of them, including santuary cities.
Since that law was passed the sieve that has become our southern border is shameful.
Our immigration problems rage out of control.
In direct violation of the 1996 federal law , the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act ( IIRIRA ) many cities both large and small have chosen to designate themselves as sanctuary cities. The IIRIRA law of 1996 requires local governments to cooperate with Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
However many large urban cities and some small communities have adopted what are called "sanctuary policies." In broader terms, this means that sanctuary policies instruct city employees to break Federal law and not report the presence of illegal aliens living in their communities to the federal government. The policies also end the distinction between legal and illegal immigration--so illegal aliens often benefit from city services too.
Nationally the impact of this lunacy has caused an explosion of budget strains for every state with a border common to Mexico. Healthcare, education, law enforcement and community services provided to these law breakers are wrecking economies in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
A list of sanctuary cities can be found here, http://www.ojjpac.org/sanctuary.asp
As a direct result of administrations from both sides of the aisle's refusal to enforce federal law and make our borders secure, along with policies that enable those who have entered this country illegally to take advantage of don't ask don't tell employment practices we now have over 13 million illegal aliens in the United States.
Phoenix Arizona is second only to narco terrorist states as the kidnapping capitol of the world. http://www.nationalterroralert.com/updates/2009/02/13/kidnapping-capital-of-the-usa-phoenix-arizona/
Due to the refusal of the United states government and officials to enforce United States law, Arizona was forced to take action and passed SB1070, seen here, http://www.nationalterroralert.com/updates/2009/02/13/kidnapping-capital-of-the-usa-phoenix-arizona/
What have geniuses in this administration done? In a continued disingenuous play for votes this administration has decided to file suit against Arizona over a state law enacted to reaffirm Federal Law. Holder is suing Arizona, for buttressing and enforcing current Federal Law. http://www.thefoxnation.com/arizona-immigration-law/2010/06/22/mexico-and-holder-both-suing-az http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/06/22/mexico-files-lawsuit-overturn-arizona-immigration-law/
Obama Promised 1200 troops along the border. But these troops are not sent to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, but to have desk jobs. John Morton, who heads U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials.http://www.alipac.us/article-topic-32.html .
The Federal government has closed a National Park on the border in effect ceding United States property to narco terrorist from Mexico. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/06/22/mexican-gangs-permanent-lookouts-parkland/
Mexico has determined to join the Holder led Justice Department to join in the suit to be filed by the Federal Government against the State of Arizona. http://tinyurl.com/2bref2d
Hilda Solis has made several PSA's in more than one stunning public service announcement with complete disregard to the law and the fact that illegal aliens who have no right to a job in the United States, has asked them to turn their employers in for unequal pay practices. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_dIWgY7Hms
It is rumored that Obama intends to by fiat issue an Executive Order granting all 13 million illegal aliens amnesty, and a response by Senators can be found here,
