Watch out, Arizona is thinking about having the audacity to enforce a common-sense law, which must mean somebody’s rights are being violated:
President Barack Obama on Thursday criticized a pending Arizona law that would make it a state crime to be in the United States illegally and require anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant to produce identification.
Such legislation could “threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans,” the president said during a naturalization ceremony for members of the United States Armed Services.
No, what it threatens to undermine is the basic notion of Democrats wanting to get the votes of millions of illegals because increasing numbers of legal American voters are turning on them and they know it.
Requiring people suspected of being illegal to produce ID undermines the notion of fairness, but forcing legal citizens to purchase a product they may not need or want does not undermine the notion of fairness. Taking money and property from one person and giving it to another does not undermine the notion of fairness. Forcing legal citizens to pay to bail out Wall Street firms that donate millions to the man forcing taxpayers to bail out Wall Street does not undermine the notion of fairness. Forcing legal citizens to pay for the health care and welfare of illegal aliens does not undermine the notion of fairness.
Hey America, want Obama to fight for you to be left alone? Want Obama to fight to protect your rights and privacy? Then rescind your US citizenship, leave the country, and sneak back in as an illegal alien.
Then again, since illegal aliens don’t pay taxes, maybe Obama just wants a ready pool of potential cabinet members on standby.
