Do your job - protect citizens first

A statement to our leaders at the federal level who refuse to do their jobs AND prevent states for doing it for them.

A dozen other countries sign on to fight Arizona's immigration enforcement law

First it was the Federal Government that opposed Arizona's new immigration law, then the , and now other countries are being allowed to join the lawsuit?  Since when did the courts in the sovereign nation of the United States consider the legal position of other contries when trying cases?  ,

In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit to overturn the law.

The move comes in response to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued Monday, allowing nearly a dozen Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile — to submit friend-of-the-court briefs in Justice’s challenge to SB 1070, which Brewer signed into law in April and is considered one of the measures.

“As do many citizens, I find it incredibly offensive that these foreign governments are using our court system to meddle in a domestic legal dispute and to oppose the rule of law,” the Republican governor said in a statement shortly after the state’s motion was filed Tuesday evening.

“What’s even more offensive is that this effort has been supported by the U.S. Department of Justice. American sovereignty begins in the U.S. Constitution and at the border,” she added. “I am confident the 9th Circuit will do the right thing and recognize foreign interference in U.S. legal proceedings and allow the State of Arizona to respond to their brief.”

Brewer and her supporters have said the state law is necessary because the federal government has failed to protect the border and enforce immigration laws. But the Justice Department — with strong backing from President Barack Obama — sued to block the Arizona law on constitutional grounds.

Arizona gets the smack down put on them by the U.N.

This seen at .  The U.N. has issued a statement to the world governments but they're looking at Arizona as they say it.  Back off of illegals already.  They have a fundamental right to health care, housing, education, and good work.  Hold up, I don't even have a fundamental right to that stuff Timeout On this same topic, RIGHTNETWORK has some dealing with the issues surrounding illegal immigration.  Worth a watch.

Chastising a global movement to crack down on illegal immigration, the famously corrupt United Nations warns that governments worldwide must respect and protect the rights of all “migrants in an irregular situation.”

Aimed largely at Arizona’s new immigration control law and the recent French expulsions of Roma migrants, the rather amusing calls upon states to ensure that their laws conform with “international human rights standards and guarantees at all stages of the migration process.”

That means that local governments must protect illegal immigrants’ “fundamental rights,” including the right to be free from “arbitrary arrest or detention” as well as the right to “seek and enjoy asylum from persecution.” Illegal aliens must also have economic, social and cultural rights, which include health, adequate housing, education and favorable conditions of work,” according to the U.N.

States like Arizona that pass measures to curb illegal immigration are “driven by hostile domestic constituencies,” the U.N. asserts. Too often these states address “irregular migration solely through the lens of sovereignty, border security or law enforcement…” Deep stuff from the scandal-plagued group that’s largely sustained with American tax dollars.

Buried in the U.N.’s enlightening two-page statement is an acknowledgement that states have legitimate interests in securing their borders and exercising immigration control. However, those concerns cannot trump the obligations to respect international law which guarantees all persons—even “migrants in an irregular situation—the necessary rights to enjoy a “life of dignity and security.”

The warning provokes outrage as well as laughter considering the U.N.’s own Human Rights Council is best known for the oppressive regimes that comprise it. Among them are the world’s worst human rights violators, including Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, China and Russia. These countries don’t even offer their own citizens rights or protections, much less to transitional migrants.

Mexico to U.S. - Please stop sending dangerous criminals back to us

Got a good laugh out of this one because it seems so ridiculous.  When an illegal alien is convicted of a serious crime has done there time, they get deported.  It would (should) work that way for an illegal of any country.  In this case, Mexico has asked the U.S. if we would , please; they'd rather not deal with the bad guys.

In a flabbergasting request, a coalition of Mexican lawmakers has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in American courts.

The preposterous demand was made at a recent southern California conference in which the mayors of four Mexican cities that border the U.S. gathered to discuss cross-border issues. The only American mayor who attended the biannual event was San Diego’s Jerry Sanders, evidently because his city hosted it this year at a fancy downtown hotel.

Among the cross-border topics that were addressed at the conference was the deportation of Mexican citizens who have committed violent crimes in the U.S. The felons are persona non grata in their communities, say the mayors of Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales and Nuevo Laredo. They want U.S. officials to stem the deportation of such convicts to their cities, according to a local that covered the conference.

To support the request, the mayor (Jose Reyes Ferriz) of Mexico’s most violent city, Ciudad Juarez, pointed out that of 80,000 people deported to his community in the past three years nearly 30,000 had committed serious crimes in the U.S. Around 7,000 had served sentences for rape and 2,000 for murder. The criminal deportees have contributed to the escalating drug-cartel violence in his city, Mayor Ferriz said, so he wants the U.S. to make other arrangements when prison sentences are completed.

If this seems unbelievable, consider that a few years ago Mexico’s government formally complained that from the U.S. and that the entire country was overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools. Various Mexican legislators publicly chastised the U.S. for sending illegal immigrants back, explaining that the country could not accommodate the “repatriated.”

The Obama Administration seems to be heeding to Mexico’s request by openly halting the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the administration has a plan to legalize millions of undocumented aliens in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it.

PARIS - Friday in Paris. A hidden camera shows streets blocked by huge crowds of Muslim worshippers and enforced by a private security force.

This is all illegal in France: the public worship, the blocked streets, and the private security. But the police have been ordered not to intervene.

If you can't beat 'em, add the legislation into a sure-bet defense policy bill

I hate when politicians to this.  Because he knows he can't get the DREAM Act to pass on its own, Harry Reid has tacked it onto a bill that almost always passes with support on both sides of the isle.  I find it underhanded, and that tactic is one of the reasons that I support Downsize DC's "," among other campaigns they have sponsored.  From :

Washington (CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday he will add the DREAM Act, a controversial immigration measure, to a defense policy bill the Senate will take up next week.

The decision means the defense bill, which often passes with bipartisan support, will be home to two major, thorny political issues – the other being the repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Reid called the DREAM Act "really important" and said it should be passed because it provides a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants who go to college or serve in the military. DREAM is an acronym for Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act.

"I know we can't do comprehensive immigration reform," Reid said at a news conference. "But those Republicans we had in the last Congress have left us."

 

Many Hispanic voters are angry with Democratic leaders for not doing more to pass an immigration overhaul. The decision by Reid to add the DREAM Act now could help soothe that anger.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell called Reid's decision "needlessly controversial."
The Senate will need 60 votes to take up the bill next week, and Reid said Tuesday he doesn't know if he has enough votes.
