Is Arizona’s law working already?…

If the intent of the Arizona legislature was to get hundreds of thousands of people arrested for immigration violations, then their SB1070 bill for immigration enforcement may never quite deliver.  If the intent was to encourage illegal immigrants to leave Arizona, they may claim success even before the first law-enforcement records check takes place.  Reuters reports that many “undocumented workers” are preparing to leave:

Next, it reveals the disingenuous response from Washington DC.  The federal government keeps saying that it lacks the resources to enforce the laws it has, but quite obviously, Arizona has much fewer resources than the Obama administration, and all they had to do was pass a law and make it stick.  If the federal government took its job seriously rather than look to pander to Hispanic voters with its deliberate incompetence on immigration enforcement, the issue would mostly resolve itself with little effort – and the resources remaining would be more than sufficient to deal with those left.

  • something I can finally agree with Grahamnesty on.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced Wednesday night that he is considering introducing a constitutional amendment that would change existing law to no longer grant citizenship to the children of immigrants born in the United States.

    This would effectively end the “Anchor Baby” syndrome plaguing our education and social services programs. To me you are an American citizen if you are born to an American citizen. The fact that by just being born in America makes you a citizen is one of the driving factors in our illegal immigrant problem. Kudos for raising the subject Senator Graham. It’s well worth the debate.
