First Obama promised over the weekend that he would rescind the “don’t ask don’t tell” regulation presently in force in the defense department, and allow gays and lesbians to openly be accepted by the armed forces and serve in all miltary services.

Now today there is this news from the Guardian,co,uk that a sherriff in Phoenix Arizona who is trying his best to stem the tide of illegals pouring over the Arizona border, esentialy got a cease and desist order from the White House!
” Joe Arpaio, a gruff lawman who styles himself as America’s toughest sheriff, has won acclaim from US anti-immigrant( correction, we are against illegals not immigrants!) forces for his relentless pursuit of mostly Hispanic illegal immigrants in Maricopa county, Arizona, a fast-growing county of 4 million people that is home to Phoenix, the nation’s fifth largest city.

Under a two-year-old agreement with the federal department of homeland security, Arpaio and his deputies had been authorised to enforce federal immigration law by arresting suspected illegal immigrants in the field and by checking the immigration status of people arrested on other offences.
But after drawing thousands of complaints and a civil rights investigation from the justice department, Arpaio was this week stripped of his federal authority to make immigration arrests. County attorney Andrew Thomas, one of Arpaio’s supporters, condemned the “setback in the fight against illegal immigration”.

For his part Arpaio has promised to continue chasing illegal immigrants using state laws. In an angry press conference, he called US homeland security officials “liars” and said he would personally drive those caught on the streets to the border if federal officers refused to take arrested illegal immigrants into custody. “I’ll take a little trip to the border and turn them over to the border,” he said. Three cheers for Arpaio!!

“The department of homeland security is making a historic mistake if it continues its relationship with Sheriff Joe Arpaio,” said Paco Fabian, spokesman for immigration reform advocacy group America’s Voice. “The federal government is lending its full force and legitimacy to a rogue cop certain to go down in history as a serial violator of civil rights and an enemy of the Latino community.”

An estimated 12 million illegal immigrants live in the US. The federal government is virtually paralysed over how to react, with conservatives like Arpaio calling for the arrest and deportation of illegal immigrants and increased border enforcement. Obama, many Democrats and some Republicans call for a system that will allow most to gain legal status after paying a fine and learning English, but reform efforts in 2006 and 2007 withered under sustained rightwing opposition.(the Democrats want the votes and only those Republicans in heavily Hispanic districts want the amnesty that Obama has promised to the Hispanic caucus)

More than 60 law enforcement agencies across the country have signed onto the same programme under which local officers are effectively deputised to enforce immigration law. But critics of the programme say it wastes police resources needed to fight street crime, promotes racial profiling of Hispanics, targets peaceful workers, breaks up families and breeds distrust of police among immigrants, who become afraid to report crime for fear they will be asked for immigration papers.( Well, then let us have more money for law enforcement officers and less money to create a cradle to grave welfare state!)

Why is Obama he** bent on amnesty?
First of all Latinos care deeply about immigration reform, and their votes trended Democrat in an extraordinary way in 2008, with Obama taking two-thirds of the vote. In states such as Nevada, New Mexico and especially the big prize of Florida, Latino voters were crucial to the result. Political operators are hardly unaware of an 11-million-strong voting bloc and are tantalised by the prospect of defining political change.

The second reason for legislative movement is opportunism. Obama is popular and has large reserves of political capital. But it is less about where we are in the presidential cycle and more about the public mood. Four out of five Americans express deep concern over immigration, but they also share a desire for action. When asked who is to blame, the public let employers and immigrants off the hook and blame government and Congress by a two-to-one margin. The public are anxious about immigration, especially illegal immigration, but they want the problem solved.
That problem is what to do with the huge illegally resident population in the US, estimated at 12 million, or one in three of the total foreign-born population.
In the end, though, the most compelling reason reform can succeed lies in the personality and huge ambition of the current White House occupant, OBAMA!  For the Obama team, immigration reform has become the civil rights issue for the 21st century. This is the prize that makes reform more likely than not, and sooner rather than later.And then we might as well disolve and abandon the Immigration and homeland security offices while we watch our country taken over by La Raza who has proclaimed that America should be Aztlan instaed of the USA!!
Aztlán became a symbol for mestizo activists who believe they have a legal and primordial right to the land. In order to exercise this right, some members of the Chicano movement propose that a new nation be created in South West United States,called The Republic of Aztlán..source: Wikapedia

Under the euphuism ‘Hispanic Homeland’ and ‘Nation of Aztlan,’ activists from numerous organizations including Mexican American Legal Defense and La Raza (The Race) activists are attempting to annex large portions of SW United States to Mexico. “Republica del Norte,” the Republic of the North, which would include the present U.S. states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, plus southern Colorado, along with several current Mexican states, is “an inevitability” says Charles Truxillo, professor, University of New Mexico. He further states the new “Hispanic Homeland” should be brought into being “by any means necessary.”

AMNESTY means never having immigration enforcement! Those ‘undocumented’ are actually ‘highly documented’ with fraudulent documents our government readily accepts.There should be no debate over illegal invasion of OUR country!.
