Well, much has been made of the “racist Republicans” over the Arizona Senate Bill 1070 aka “The Immigration Bill”. Of course, most of the chatter is from people who have not read the bill whatsoever. Much of the discussion is just based on a quick-rising urban myth phenomenon.
As a matter of fact, we had quite a thread going on Facebook concerning the issue. Several posters to a thread by Calvin Lester played the race card and of course the profiling mantra. For this post, I want to point out the obvious hypocrisy though.
Well it appears that the Reid-Schumer-Menendez Immigration Draft Document actually has some great points. Even the Daily KOS supports most it – well sort of. The funny thing is that you don’t hear the liberal morons kicking and screaming over this one. Let me give you a few select points that are directly from the draft:
Now wait a minute. That would mean if you are a Hispanic American then you might be checked? Hey – could that be racial profiling?
increased immigration court resources to expedite the removal of unlawfully present individuals.
Hey – that is picking on Hispanics only. Since they are primarily the race coming over the border (I haven’t heard of many Irish folks doing it), this means that Hispanics will be unfairly targeted. That’s not fair!
use of Department of Defense equipment at the border;
Now that’s just not fair. Those poor illegal undocumented aliens will be outgunned!
who attempt to illegally enter or smuggle people, including terrorists, or contraband, including weapons of mass destruction or narcotics
Did they just call the illegal undocumented workers terrorists and drug dealers in the same sentence. WOW!
accomplish border enforcement without engaging in racial profiling;
Oh – that’s kind of like the “lawful contact” portion of the Arizona bill. Great – the feds sure are on top of everything!
They will also be equipped with weapons, including non-lethal intermediate force weapons,
Now can’t that be considered a potential for torture? After those poor downtrodden illegal undocumented Mexicans Hispanics have walked such a long distance in all that heat, I’m sure the stun guns will feel great – if they don’t go into a writhing cardiac arrest. OMG!
It will also create a Commission on Wartime Treatment of European Americas to review the United States Government’s wartime treatment of European Americans and European Latin Americans during World War II…
Hey – that’s distracting from the issue at hand! I bet they are going to offer financial reparations to people from WWII while letting the Mexicans get harrassed! THATS NOT FAIR!
You see, I could go on and on with this garbage. Instead, let me just give you my actual experience on the border. Back in the early ’9os, I hunted less than 30 miles from the Texas-Mexico border between Bracketville and Del Rio Texas. Every single time I was in a deer stand I saw an illegal Mexican making his or her way through the brush. Obviously, they were literally risking their lives in front of white rednecks with guns just to get in this country.
In my isolated experience I probably saw 100 or so. That was back in the 1990′s. In one little spot. It certainly hasn’t gotten any better.
