Democrats Use Arizona Immigration Law as Rallying Cry for Federal Action
The law would make it a state crime to be an illegal immigrant and require police to question individuals about their immigration status if they suspect they could be in the country illegally.Imagine that. You have to create a state law to make law breakers outlaws to wit law enforcement of the law could actually take place. And the retort to a law that tries to make a law enforceable?
"The idea that state by state would start developing its own immigration laws in the country -- imagine what a patchwork that might look like," Dodd told NBC's "Meet the Press." "It's demanding a national answer to immigration policy, so before this even gets further out of hand, we've got to step up and do the job."
Dodd called the Arizona law "outrageous."
The very idea that the federal government is getting upset about states trying to enforce federal regulations bogglers the mind.
But Democrats are defending the decision to pivot, rebutting charges that they're doing so to woo Hispanic voters ahead of the midterm elections. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., said Sunday that Congress needs to act to make sure other states don't follow Arizona's lead.That is right. This is all about stay in power election politics. Just like the Wall Street takeover, this move is more about what needs to be done to get re-elected than the administrations most avant guard radical agenda planks.
Forget Socialism; Totalitarianism is the name of this game!
