OUR NATION'S BORDER CONTROL CRISIS

  1. 1. THE AAIEE ! ADMINISTRATION - - A BLOG SERIES ON THE OBAMA BLUNDERS. EPISODE #2 – INVASION FROM WITHIN UH OH !
  2. 2. QUESTION: WHAT’S AAIEE ! ? ANSWER: IT’S KIND OF A PRIMAL SCREAM - - AND AN ACRONYM. (More below)
  3. 3. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS ATTACKED THE STATE OF ARIZONA (AND EFFECTIVELY, ALL 50 STATES ) - - USING A LEGAL BLUDGEON TO GET ITS WAY WITH REGARD TO IGNORING CONTROL OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. BUT ISN’T THIS A GROSS ABUSE OF FEDERAL POWER ? SOME POINTS MADE IN THIS BLOG: • ABANDONING THE CONSTITUTION WITH IMPUNITY • THE SCARY SITUATION IN AZ AND SOME OTHER STATES • JUDGE SUSAN BOLTON’S RULING • A CONSTITUTIONAL ARGUMENT PER ALAN KEYES • A SHORT ANALOGY OF THE FED’S POSITION • IS THE LEGAL BATTLE IMPORTANT TO THE PEOPLE ? • A FEW SPECIFIC FACTS • A MAJOR DEFECTION IS CAUSE FOR ALARM AND SUGGESTS THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE • AAIEE !
  4. 4. AMERICA IS A POWERFUL COUNTRY - - WHY SHOULD WE WORRY ? THERE’S ALSO THE MANY PLAIN LAWLESS- NESS TRAGEDIES
  5. 5. SO WHAT RIGHT DO THE FEDS HAVE TO STEP IN AND UNDERCUT THE AUTHORITY OF ANY STATE TO PROTECT ITS CITIZENS ? NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER, SAYS ALAN KEYES, FORMER CANDIDATE FOR THE U.S. PRESIDENCY AND AN ARTICULATE SPOKESMAN FOR THE RULE OF LAW. Keyes cites: “(Article I, Section 10) of the U.S. Constitution that recognizes that when one of the United States is "actually invaded," the state government may act, without federal authorization, to defend itself. Moreover, because of dereliction by the Federal gov’t, AZ and several other States have been invaded, leading to damage and loss of life for Citizens.
  6. 6. SO WHAT RIGHT DO THE FEDS HAVE TO STEP IN AND UNDERCUT THE AUTHORITY OF ANY STATE TO PROTECT ITS CITIZENS ? ALAN KEYES ARGUED FURTHER THAT THE RECENT RULING BY FEDERAL JUDGE SUSAN BOLTON AGAINST AZ, IS BOTH ERRONEOUS AND IRRATIONAL: “U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton seeks to suppress this clearly stated constitutional prerogative (of every State). She claims that it is pre-empted by the Federal government's refusal to enforce the existing federal laws. So a prerogative established by the Supreme Law of the Land is somehow pre-empted by the perjurious refusal of federal officials faithfully to carry out laws enacted in accordance with the Constitution's provisions. In effect, this doctrine of “pre- emptive dereliction ” replaces the rule of law with the lawless abuse of authority. It aims to force the states to accept whatever damage the Federal government chooses to inflict upon their citizens by its neglect of duty.”
  7. 7. LET’S LOOK AT THE FED’S LEGAL ARGUMENT A LITTLE MORE CLOSELY:
  8. 8. JUDGE BOLTON vs THE CONSTITUTION
  9. 9. THE CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLE IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT - - BUT LET’S NOT IGNORE THE LAWLESSNESS ASPECT, WHICH CONTAINS THE HUMAN PART OF THIS SITUATION AND INCLUDES THINGS LIKE: • LOSS OF LIFE & PROPERTY • ADDED CRIME COSTS BORNE BY LEGAL CITIZENS • INTERFACE WITH DRUG CRIMINALITY • NEIGHBORHOOD VIOLENCE AND ACCOMPANYING CITIZEN ANGER AND ANXIETY • IGNORING THE LAW - - e.g., “SANCTUARY CITIES” MANY BOOKS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ON THE HUMAN COSTS OF TOLERATING THE ILLEGAL INFLOW - - SO THIS ASPECT IS JUST DISCUSSED HERE WITH A FEW SELECTED EXAMPLES
  10. 10. INNOCENT CITIZENS HAVE BEEN ATTACKED ON THE STREETS, ON THEIR PROPERTY AND EVEN IN THEIR HOMES
  11. 11. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT STUDIES SHOW THAT THE ADDED COST TO CITIZENS IS DISPROPORTIONATELY HIGH AND INCLUDES JAIL COSTS.
  12. 12. IDENTITY THEFT AND FRAUD IS OFTEN TRACED TO THE SEGMENT OF ILLEGAL ALIENS THAT ARRIVES HERE WITH CRIMINAL BACKGROUNDS.
  13. 13. THE LAW PASSED BY ARIZONANS IS TESTAMENT TO WIDESPREAD CITIZEN ANGER AND ANXIETY
  14. 14. THE INTERFACE WITH DRUG CRIMINALITY HAS BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED
  15. 15. “SANCTUARY CITIES” CONVEY A DISREGARD OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY AND THE LAW. WE HAVE 40 SUCH CITIES ACROSS OUR NATION
  16. 16. ICE Border Control Agents Publically Reject “Political” Agenda of Dept. Head Obama Appointees.
  17. 17. SUMMARY REMARKS A LITTLE PLAIN TALK: FAR FROM BEING ANIMATED BY RACISM, THE ARIZONA LAW WAS PASSED WITH A LARGE AND VALID DEGREE OF CITIZEN SUPPORT. THE REASONS ARE MANY, AS HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED: • ANGER AT THE FEDS IGNORING OUR CONSTITUTION • PROTECTION OF STATES RIGHTS IS WELL DOCUMENTED AS A CORNERSTONE PRINCIPLE OF OUR GOVERNMENT’S STRUCTURE • ANGER AND FEAR ARISING FROM THE THREAT TO INNOCENT AMERICAN LIVES AND PROPERTY • ANGER AT THE GOVERNMENT’S EXAMPLE OF IGNORING THE ENFORCEMENT OF OUR LAWS - - WHICH UNDERCUTS EVERY PARENT’S TEACHING OF THEIR CHILDREN TO BE LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS • ANGER AT BEING AN UNWILLING PARTY TO THE ABANDONMENT OF THE PRINCIPLES OF AMERICA’S FOUNDERS, WHOSE WORK HAS ADMIRABLY STOOD THE TEST OF TIME.
  18. 18. SUMMARY REMARKS MR. OBAMA HAS CREATED MANY CHAOTIC SITUATIONS IN HIS SHORT TIME IN OFFICE. HERE’S WHY WE HAVE AWARDED HIM AN AAIEE ! MEDAL FOR HIS WORK ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
