ARIZONA: Government wrong to interfere

So once again a federal judge says the people of a state really don’t know what they’re doing after they vote on a law and it passed.

When are the people of this nation going to stand up and say “No more”? I see this immigration problem as very simple: They sneak in and need to go back.

Amnesty? No! We don’t reward murders, bank robbers, thieves and most anyone else who breaks the law (except for some on Wall Street). So why should we welcome illegals?

The federal government hasn’t been doing its job. Now that Arizona wants to do the job, it wants to block it.

The government needs to go back to what it does best: giving our money to countries that spit back at us and throwing it away on trying to bring peace to a region that has been in turmoil since the Crusades.
