A Suggested Response for Arizona…

Since the Executive Branch of the United States has unilaterally decided what laws to enforce and what laws will be ignored…
I suggest Arizona return the favor.
From this point forward and until the Federal government returns to its responsibility of enforcing all the laws of the land including those they find distasteful, Arizona should unilaterally cease to enforce certain laws originating from the Federal Government.  Particularly, but not limited to, those laws and regulations originating from departments falling under the jurisdiction of the Executive Branch.
I would offer up everything from the EPA… then the Dept. of Education… and follow up with the DEA and FBI.  You could throw in the IRS for good measure.
They don’t have to be overt about it… just radio silence, so to speak. Simply stop cooperating.  Call it operation “All Quiet on the Western Front”.

It is time to argue the 10th Amendment and states rights.
Arizona simply wants to defend their sovereignty… and the Left is hell-bent on defending their welfare dependant potential voters at the Federal level.
I happen to favor a simple solution to the immigration problem that I have outlined in a previous post titled La Gran Mentira. It does not extend citizenship rights to foreign workers. It does not allow for union membership of foreign workers. It does, however, make it easy for foreigners to come to the U.S. and work if that is what they choose to do. It also respects the fact that whatever money they make is their to do with what the wish. And… yes they will have to pay taxes just as we do anywhere else in the world we choose to work… without the right citizens of those countries enjoy.
This is not hard.
But my solution does not provide for the foreign workers to be stripped of their wages by compulsory Union dues. And it does not allow for them to head to the voting booth in order to effect the lives of millions of Americans with their vote.
If they find having Union bosses steal from them and voting for more of it to be desirable they will have to get in line like everyone else not born here.
I welcome them.

Frankly I find naturalized citizens to be better Americans on the whole as they know why it is here that they want to b e versus the country they left behind.
So… to make a long missive longer. Let’s start a fight and have not only a national debate, but a national education on what Federalism means and how this republic was designed. It certainly hasn’t happened in our public schools for the last 50 years… and we are all suffering for it.
