Friend of the Robot and fellow Southeast Texan, Peter Morrison, has chimed in on the Arizona Illegal Immigration law issue with a call for action to our leaders in Austin. The Robot could not agree more.

The Peter Morrison Report

The governor of Arizona just signed into law a measure that gives
local law enforcement the power to actually do something about
illegal immigration.  It’s one of the toughest laws in the nation
dealing with the illegal invasion, and all the right people are
denouncing it.  Now it’s time for Governor Perry and our
legislators to give Texas the same kind of bill.

Send a fax to Gov. Perry, Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, and Speaker Straus,

Full report:

The Arizona legislature passed a bill this year that can actually
have a real impact on the massive invasion of illegal aliens that
all states in the Southwest are experiencing.  Unlike so many bills
dealing with illegal immigration, which usually do very little to
actually crack down on the problem, Arizona’s SB 1070 has some real
teeth in it.  For starters, it makes it a violation of state law to
be in the country illegally, which is a great end run around the
federal government.  The Washington, DC establishment always claims
that only the feds have the power to enforce laws against illegal
immigration, because it’s a federal crime, not a state violation.
Then they turn around and do nothing to enforce federal immigration

The bill also authorizes local law enforcement officials to arrest
illegal aliens, which is another critical component.  Since the
federal government refuses to do its duty to protect the nation’s
borders, SB 1070 gives the men and women in the police and
sheriff’s departments of Arizona the authority to do so.  This is
how it should be, as federal law enforcement manpower simply isn’t
sufficient for the task.  Once illegals get past the Border Patrol,
it’s up to local communities to deal with the problem.  The bill
also bans “sanctuary cities”, and makes it a crime to knowingly
transport anyone who is in the country illegally.  This is exactly
the kind of legislation conservatives have been demanding for years.

Arizona’s governor, Jan Brewer, at first played coy about whether
she would sign the bill, refusing to comment on it either way.
Finally, though, she bowed to public pressure and signed it into
law.  She said the bill will allow Arizona to “work to solve a
crisis we did not create and the federal government has refused to
fix – the crisis caused by illegal immigration and Arizona’s porous
border.”  Governor Brewer is up for re-election in November, and
with polls showing that 70 percent of Arizona voters were in favor
of the bill, refusing to sign it into law would probably have been
the death knell for her career in politics.  Illegal immigration in
Arizona is even worse than here in Texas, and voters all over the
political spectrum have finally had enough.

Naturally, it didn’t take long for the leftists and
multiculturalists to start denouncing Arizona’s long overdue
crackdown on illegal immigration.  Several left wing groups are
already promising to fight it in the federal courts, and liberal
politicians and pundits have been condemning the bill in
apocalyptic terms.  That’s because they want the invasion of tens
of millions of illegal aliens from third world nations to continue;
they know that the invasion will result in millions of future
Democrat voters.  They don’t mind seeing America turned into a
Balkanized country if it guarantees a permanent Democratic
majority.  That’s exactly what will come about if we don’t
immediately take serious steps to begin reversing the invasion of
illegals from south of the border.

Barack Obama, naturally, has condemned the bill.  In his view the
new law threatens “basic notions of fairness that we cherish as
Americans, as well as the trust between police and their
communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.” It’s quite
telling that Obama was quick to condemn the Cambridge police
officer who rightly arrested one of his pals, but is now suddenly
concerned about trust between the police and “communities.” (Notice
he didn’t use the word “citizens.”)  One of Obama’s favorite
preachers, the far left-wing Jim Wallis, called the bill “a racial
sin.”  The liberal Roman Catholic Archbishop of Los Angeles, who is
notorious for his support of illegal aliens, even compared the new
law to “German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques”.  These over
the top hysterical reactions are proof that this bill is liberals’
worst nightmare.

On top of the denunciations of a state that dares to fight back
against the overwhelming invasion of illegals, the violent protests
that have taken place in Arizona speak volumes.  The protesters who
have been throwing rocks and bottles at “demonstrations” in Arizona
know exactly what this new bill means – the beginning of the end of
the massive cultural transformation taking place from Texas to
California by way of illegal immigration.  Even the leader of
Mexico condemned the bill; he’s aware that if more states begin
passing similar laws, Mexico will no longer be able to “improve”
its economy by letting Mexican citizens illegally enter the US,
where they often mail the money they earn back home.

The Arizona bill shows that when conservatives put enough pressure
on, the politicians will get the message, and begin to get serious
about illegal immigration.  The legislatures of every state need to
pass their own versions of this bill that is scaring the living
daylights out of the liberals and multiculturalists, and Texas
should be the first to follow suit.  It’s high time Texans got a
law that will actually tackle the invasion head on.  Arizona has
shown us how it can be done, and there are no good reasons our
elected officials in Austin shouldn’t give us a similar law.  The
time for posturing is over; it’s now time to take real action to
stop the illegal immigration invasion in Texas.  After what
happened in Arizona, Austin has no more excuses.

Take Action:

Contact Governor Rick Perry, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, and
Speaker of the House Joe Straus.  Demand that they get serious
about dealing with the invasion of illegals that is transforming
Texas, and give us a bill that’s just as powerful and effective as
the one that just became law in Arizona.  Also, contact your
district Representatives and Senators with the same message.

Send a fax to Gov. Perry, Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, and Speaker Straus,

    Great post. Thanks for sharing. The liberal knee-jerk over-reaction has been hilarious to watch.

      Thanks Matt. Peter is on one of the local school boards here. I really like his thought process and his research is well documented every time.
