Regarding SB1070 and My Misunderstandings
So, after the comments I’ve received regarding my post/rant the other day, I realized that I was a bit misinformed. Maybe it isn’t quite racial profiling like it had seemed to me. Not officially at least. However, I wont back down from my notion that the racial profiling will occur.
MCT88 said in her comment:
“when the federal government does not fulfill its duties to protect its nations borders the states do have the right to construct their own laws.”
You’re absolutely right. The State should do this if the Feds aren’t getting the job done. What I don’t like though, is the self-proclaimed “Minutemen” who will camp at the border with guns. Most of the time, these guys are retired war veterans with nothing else better to do than try to pretend they’re still in Active Duty. I read something recently about how an illegal immigrant attacked one of these “Minutemen.” There was probably a reason for it. They probably were threatened or felt threatened. I’m sure these “watchers” will probably provoke the Hispanic’s coming over the border.
Hamlette2002 also commented and said:
Illegal immigrants work here, then send the money they earn back to their families, paying no taxes to support our social services, and not spending the money in the US, thereby deflating the economy and driving up inflation.
And you’re right as well, it’s one thing I dislike. We should have higher standards when it comes to our money and the way we give it out.
