We citizens of Arizona should honor Gov. Jan Brewer for standing up for what is right for our great state. She is only asking citizens and law enforcement agencies to do what our federal government fails to do. Just uphold the law. We don’t care about votes, we are not being discriminatory, we just care about our state’s rights and laws, and stop these people from taking advantage of the benefits that my ancestors worked so hard for.
My ancestors came over from Europe in the late 1700s, learned the language, got a job, and became American citizens and not through amnesty.
When I drive, I carry my vehicle registration, my insurance card and my drivers license. If you travel out of the country, you take your ID with you, don’t you? Gee, that’s a no-brainer. If you don’t have these papers, then you are breaking the law, yes the law.
The federal government should be thanking Gov. Brewer for doing their job of enforcing immigration laws. But our state has been punished by the boycotts and the bad coverage that the media provides, making us law-abiding citizens look like criminals. What’s wrong with this picture?
Let us take care of our illegal immigration, do away with the freebies, and force our government to write a law disallowing a newborn, born here, from becoming a citizen if both parents are here illegally.
