On Friday, I saw a new story that the US Justice Dept. is filing suit against Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, claiming he is violating people's rights while seeking to enforce immigration laws. The suit accuses Arpaio and his deputies of discriminantly stopping those who appear of Hispanic orgin to verify that they have proper identification.
I think this suit is ridiculous. Arpaio and his staff wouldn't have to be stopping people if the Federal govt would just do its job instead of looking the other way -- no, instead of allowing illegals to continue to operate unimpeded on US soil. The Feds should be the ones faulted and brought to task for abdicating their constitutional responsibility to defend America and its borders from foreign invasion. The so-called efforts of the Bush Administration to address illegal immigration was a joke then, just as the Obama Administration's positions are a joke now. Democrats want as many people as possible from disadvantaged countries to flood into US in hopes most of those people will vote for Democrats and the Democratic party can increasingly pursue its agendas. The Republicans give little more than lip service to immigration control while doing little or nothing, afraid to alienate a population that is a growing percentage of the population and voting public and also a source of cheap labor for their buddies in industry.
Both major parties are a disgrace to this country, and all they ever really do is try to thwart and punish patriotic Americans such as Joe Arpaio who are trying to do something to save this country from the traitors that run our country.
