Yesterday after the most important provision, or what Arizona Governor Jan Brewer called the "heart" of SB 1070 was unanimously upheld, which allows local law enforcement to inquire about legal status, the feds set up a hotline in the state for people to report "potential" civil rights violations.

Hello, race baiting. Obama is now encouraging it.

"With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations [of immigrants brought here illegally as children] through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed.”

— President Obama, March 28, 2011

I think maybe once a month they should load up a few busloads of illegals and drive them up to the DOJ.


I wouldn’t recommend that as an option Denise – transporting illegal aliens is, technically, a Federal Offence.

Look, it's pretty clear that this is simply hissy fit material by Obama, responding the the court's rulings. Nothing more....


Obama is probably laughing his backside off but the Memorandum of Agreement that ICE and the Law Enforcement agencies signed is worded in such a way that it couldn’t stay in place even if Obama wanted it to Mike.

Arizona legislators had to know that the MOA would be rescinded if their legislation was enacted, yet they went ahead regardless then feigned shock and horror when the inevitable happened. I blame them

quote:
the feds set up a hotline in the state for people to report "potential" civil rights violations.


Since the Arizona law could increase the incidence of civil rights offences and the Government has a duty to protect civil rights it sounds like a good idea.

I am confused as to why you believe that helping American racial minorities could be considered “race baiting” though Mike – how can offering help to a racial minority be construed as “baiting”?

I doubt sincerely that you are that naiive, Grinch. You are too intelligent an individual.

You know as well as anyone that offering such a service will promote action simply by it's existence. Add to that  that it's created by the President and that makes it more so.

Many latins, and especially the illegal ones, will be more than happy to scream prejudice, whether any is shown or not. People, especially guilty ones, will always look for excuses. Obama is saying, "Here! Call! Complain!" He knows what such a service will do.

So do you.

Oh heck - in a country torn apart partly at least by a lunatic right wing and a worrying level of capitalist greed and complacency (look at the obesity stats) I think President Obama has done an amazing job in even keeping the US as a credible superpower.

THAT won't last long if the Mitt and the religious nut wagon get a grip on power.
