It’s the law of “intended” consequences …
As reported by the AP, ‘Illegal immigrants plan to leave over Arizona law’. Would not this be considered a victory for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and the Arizona voters who support the new law and those nationally who support it as well?
“Nobody wants to pick us up,” Julio Loyola Diaz says in Spanish as he and dozens of other men wait under the shade of palo verde trees and lean against a low brick wall outside the east Phoenix home improvement store.
Many day laborers like Diaz say they will leave Arizona because of the law, which also makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants.
Red State has nailed it. A law has been passed to make it a state law for illegals to be in the US illegally, which generally would include the day laborers. So the law has caused illegals to leave Arizona because it is illegal to be there illegally and some how following the rule of law is a bad thing.
We all in some respects have some reservations about this new law; however, the United States is governed by the rule of law. If we are to look the other way on illegals, then who is going to pick and choose as to other laws that should be disregarded?
Hispanics plan to have marches on May 1st against the new Arizona law. I would be very, very careful folks how you protest. A note to Democrats, be very careful what causes you attach yourself to. For over a year Democrats and the liberal MSM have demonized the Tea Party movement as racists and evil, violent, hate mongers. America will be watching this weekend as to how out of control these anti-illegal immigration protests get. What are the chances that these protests get more out of control than the ones we have already seen? America will be able to compare and contrast Tea Party protests vs. anti-illegal immigration and decide for them self.
The voters will be watching indeed.
