So Arizona finally passed a very American law that basically encourages Arizona law enforcement personnel to enforce the immigration laws that are already on the books, and President Barack Obama says that a lack of a federal immigration bill opens the door for "misguided efforts" at immigration reform.
Basically, by saying that Arizona's new law is "misguided" he's saying that he knows what's best for Arizona. That's fine. I don't have a problem with Obama thinking he knows best. The problem I have is that what he is implying is that since Obama doesn't like Arizona enforcing the law, he believes the Federal government should make a law overruling what the Arizona legislature did.
Of course, progressives like Obama don't care about the Constitution, and they believe the federal government has the right to tell states what to do. However, the Constitution has the 10th Amendment, which basically protects states rights. This 10th amendment is generally considered an "obstacle" to what progressives want to do, which is whatever feels good at the moment.
Presently, what feels good to democrats is to give amnesty to illegal aliens, because democrats believe that if they are given amnesty they will vote for democrats, because they are poor
President Barack Obama on Friday warned that without federal immigration reform the door would be open to "misguided efforts" such as a new Arizona law that has raised questions of civil rights. For some reaason, he veiws this sovereign right of the state of Arizona as bad.
I ask this: since when is it bad for a state to do what it thinks is right? Since when is it the right of the President of the United States to speak bad about what one state decides is right for it?
Quite frankly, it's none of Obama's business. But, considering Obama is a progressive, he believes it's his job to decide what's best for everyone. And since one state did something he disagreed with, it's his job to stop that state.
Scare hey? Scary!!! Yet that's how progressives are. The whole purpose of the progressive movement is to create this ideal world, and Obama is a leader of the progressive movement, regardless of what the Constitution says.
Two days ago Obama said, "Today we celebrate the very essence of the country that we all love -- an America where so many of our forbearers came from someplace else. And so on a day like this, we are also reminded of how we must remain both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. This includes fixing America's broken immigration system."
Basically, he's saying, "#$@# you, we dont' give a #@## about state's rights.
He doesn't care about state's rights.
