Authorities in Arizona have rounded up 17 suspected illegal immigrants in the shooting of 53 year old Louie Puroll. The shooting occurred as criticism from President Obama and Home Land Security Secretary Janet Napolitano called the new anti-immigration law misguided. Napolitano also stated the border was secure.
Would the President call the capture of the 17 individuals racial profiling, misguided or police abuse?
Authorities have captured 17 suspected illegal immigrants in southern Arizona as they continued their manhunt Saturday for smugglers who they say shot and wounded a sheriff’s deputy in a remote desert area 50 miles south of Phoenix.
Three of those captured overnight Friday matched descriptions from the wounded Pinal County deputy and were being questioned Saturday, sheriff’s Lt. Tamatha Villar said. The deputy was released from the hospital, and was recovering at home.
However, as people take to the streets on May 1st to protest the new Arizona law and premature comments come from President Obama regarding s state’s right to defend itself when the federal government is AWOL … the shooting by suspected drug traffickers shows the danger on the ground and the reason why Jan Brewer signed the bill into law. As is the murder of rancher Robert Krenz was not enough of a signal to finally take action.
At what point is the United States going to defend its borders, citizens and their rights? The legal one’s that is.
