Why Not Sue Rhode Island as Well?

Today, Arizona. Tomorrow . . . Rhode Island?

Attorney General Eric Holder finally filed that long-rumored lawsuit challenging Arizona’s new immigration law. In his opinion, only the federal government has the legal authority to “enforce” (read “completely ignore”) border security. If the Obama administration were convinced that Arizona would treat illegal immigration the same way the feds do, they wouldn’t have bothered to sue.

Unfortunately, Arizonans seem to take the rule of law seriously. And this is a big problem for Team Obama.

Holder is worried that trained and knowledgeable local cops will actually prove that the law is enforceable, blowing his boss’s cover. Remember President Barack Obama’s claim last week that our borders are “just too vast” for us to secure them through enforcement, with fences and border patrols?

The border’s too big. The hole in the Gulf is too deep. The recession is too stubborn. Maybe we should find the president a smaller, easier-to-manage country to govern. You know - send him to the minors for a few years.

Anyway, if enforcing immigration law is a bad thing for local cops to do, as Holder claims, why pick on Arizona? If he’s really upset that the same laws he has taken an oath to enforce might actually get (gulp!) enforced, why isn’t he suing Providence instead of Phoenix? They’ve been doing local immigration enforcement for years now.

As The Boston Globe-Democrat reported yesterday, “From Woonsocket to Westerly, the troopers patrolling the nation’s smallest state are reporting all illegal immigrants they encounter, even on routine stops such as speeding, to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

Even liberal Providence, where politicians long opposed any local enforcement efforts, changed its policy in 2008 after the infamous Marco Riz case.

Riz was the illegal immigrant arrested by Providence cops twice while under a federal deportation order but released both times. He was then charged with carjacking a woman in Warwick and raping her in Providence.

Rhode Island cops now routinely contact ICE when they suspect they’ve come across an illegal immigrant. Since 2006, the number of contacts they’ve made to ICE’s Law Enforcement Support Center in Vermont has nearly doubled, the Globe reported. How is this significantly different than Arizona’s proposed law?

Families who fear running into the next Marco Riz might think Rhode Island is onto something. But not Team Obama.

No, what Holder wants is for more states to follow the Massachusetts model.

When Gov. Deval Patrick took office, he let it be known that his attitude toward immigration enforcement was . . . not to.

As a result, the Globe reports that the number of calls to the ICE support office from Massachusetts law enforcement plunged under Patrick, from 4,461 checks in 2006 to just 575 in the last fiscal year.

Amnesty-siacs like Holder and Patrick never answer the simple question: What’s wrong with enforcing the law?

We know what happens when you don’t - Phoenix becomes the kidnapping capital of America, blue-collar workers lose their jobs and as a new study by the Federation for Immigration Reform concludes, illegal immigration costs us $113 billion a year.

Does anyone believe the costs of enforcement would be nearly this high?

So why sue Arizona?

The glaring, obvious and painful answer is politics. Hispanics are a key part of the Democratic Party coalition, and many Latino voters are unhappy with President Obama’s lack of action on amnesty for illegals. And it’s a lot more effective making that case in Tucson than Pawtucket.

A fight with Arizona puts Obama on the side of amnesty, but without requiring him to do anything - a classic move from the president who as a senator loved to vote “present.”

I'm no supporter of the Arizona law, but your description of it is simply incorrect.

Well duh it's all politics. There's a reason why the admniistration came out against it from day one before they even read the damn thing. Hell, I wonder if Holder still has read the damn thing or if he's still using Rachel Madcow as his talking piece.

Rhode Island does what they do, as do a couple of other states. Look like a dark skinned hispanic with out of state plates and drive through Tennessee and see how long you last. You want to see racial profiling, it's a huge case for it there.

Missouri has it's own laws as well and you don't see them being sued. Of course they aren't as vocal about it either because they don't have the message to send. Still, where's the lawsuit against them?

Even California's law is quite similar, where's the lawsuit against them?

It's always politics... nothing more, and nothing less.

You missed the point of the story. The point is why all the attention to the AZ law when other states have practicly the same law and no one says a word about it.

AZ only has about a 1/4 million illegal aliens in state, but that is not the point. Make an example of just a fraction of them to set the tone. You don't have to arrest every street ####### peddling poon-tang on the street corner to put out the message that such behavior won't be tolerated. You don't have to arrest every day laborer peddling illegal work at the Home Depot either. You just have to make examples out of enough of them to send the others packing.

The same can be done with mandatory employment verification. Turn up the heat, make an example, and the others flee like cockroaches when the kitchen light comes on along with their employers.

BTW...Obummer and his cronies are trying to shut down AZ in that area of enforcement too. Obummer's Justice Department has also files suit on AZ's mandatory employer verification requirement as well. They pick on AZ because they are at the forefront of enforcement and if they can squash AZ the rest will fall like dominos.

The fact is that Obummer and crew see political gain from importing amnestied illegal aliens with a pathway to a Dumbocratic voter card. That is the bottom line. Americans in of all political spectrums should be outraged and disgusted by these assclowns' attempts to politicize immigration enforcement for their own ill gotten political gain. Only a ideology driven party hack could condone such corruption and malfeasance as a means to justify a self serving ends.

The fact is that Obummer's immigration reform is all about illegal alien amnesty and future Democratic votes. It's not about any real reform for the best interests of the American people.

"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

Rhode Island is a state? I drove through there on the way to Atlantic City from Fort Belvoir. Not impressed. Of course, I wasn't impressed with Atlantic City either.

That was a long way around getting to Atlantic City...

In the 1950s, the Eisenhower administration deported 10 million illegals in a program called "Operation Wetback". It has been done and it can be done if the government has the will to do it.
