Fw: Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen.

Subject: Fwd: Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen.

FYI in case you are wondering why HB 1070 was passed in Arizona...

I'm Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen. I want to explain SB 1070 which I voted for and was just signed by Governor Jan Brewer.
Rancher Rob Krantz was murdered by the drug cartel on his ranch a month ago. I participated in a senate hearing two weeks ago on the border violence, here is just some of the highlights from those who testified.
The people who live within 60 to 80 miles of the Arizona/Mexico Border have for years been terrorized and have pleaded for help to stop the daily invasion of humans who cross their property . One Rancher testified that 300 to 1200 people a DAY come across his ranch vandalizing his property, stealing his vehicles and property, cutting down his fences, and leaving trash. In the last two years he has found 17 dead bodies and two Koran bibles.

Another rancher testified that daily drugs are brought across his ranch in a military operation. A point man with a machine gun goes in front, 1/2 mile behind are the guards fully armed, 1/2 mile behind them are the drugs, behind the drugs 1/2 mile are more guards. These people are violent and they will kill anyone who gets in the way. This was not the only rancher we heard that day that talked about the drug trains.

One man told of two illegal's who came upon his property one shot in the back and the other in the arm by the drug runners who had forced them to carry the drugs and then shot them. Daily they listen to gun fire during the night it is not safe to leave his family alone on the ranch and they can't leave the ranch for fear of nothing being left when they come back.

The border patrol is not on the border. They have set up 60 miles away with check points that do nothing to stop the invasion. They are not allowed to use force in stopping anyone who is entering. They run around chasing them, if they get their hands on them then they can take them back across the border.

Federal prisons have over 35% illegal's and 20% of Arizona prisons are filled with illegal's. In the last few years 80% of our law enforcement that have been killed or wounded have been by an illegal.

The majority of people coming now are people we need to be worried about. The ranchers told us that they have seen a change in the people coming they are not just those who are looking for work and a better life.
The Federal Government has refused for years to do anything to help the border states . We have been over run and once they are here we have the burden of funding state services that they use. Education cost have been over a billion dollars. The healthcare cost billions of dollars. Our State is broke, $3.5 billion deficit and we have many serious decisions to make. One is that we do not have the money to care for any who are not here legally. It has to stop.
The border can be secured. We have the technology we have the ability to stop this invasion. We must know who is coming and they must come in an organized manner legally so that we can assimilate them into our population and protect the sovereignty of our country. We are a nation of laws. We have a responsibility to protect our citizens and to protect the integrity of our country and the government which we live under.

I would give amnesty today to many, but here is the problem, we dare not do this until the Border is secure. It will do no good to forgive them because thousands will come behind them and we will be over run to the point that there will no longer be the United States of America but a North American Union of open borders. I ask you what form of government will we live under? How long will it be before we will be just like Mexico , Canada or any of the other Central American or South American countries? We have already lost our language, everything must be printed in Spanish also. We have already lost our history it is no longer taught in our schools. And we have lost our borders.
The leftist media has distorted what SB 1070 will do. It is not going to set up a Nazi Germany . Are you kidding. The ACLU and the leftist courts will do everything to protect those who are here illegally, but it was an effort to try and stop illegal's from setting up businesses, and employment, and receiving state services and give the ability to local law enforcement when there is probable cause like a traffic stop to determine if they are here legally. Federal law is very clear if you are here on a visa you must have your papers on you at all times. That is the law. In Arizona all you need to show you are a legal citizen is a driver license, MVD identification card, Native American Card, or a Military ID. This is what you need to vote, get a hunting license, etc.. So nothing new has been added to this law. No one is going to be stopped walking down the street etc... The Socialist who are in power in DC are angry because we dare try and do something and that something the Socialist wants us to do is just let them come. They want the "Transformation" to continue.
Maybe it is too late to save America . Maybe we are not worthy of freedom anymore. But as an elected official I must try to do what I can to protect our Constitutional Republic . Living in America is not a right just because you can walk across the border. Being an American is a responsibility and it comes by respecting and upholding the Constitution the law of our land which says what you must do to be a citizen of this country. Freedom is not free.

I fear that this is authentic. The idea that actual legislators are making decisions on such obvious fallacies (there has been no increase in violent crime in Arizona over the last several years; very few of those who cross the border illegally have any violent intent) should frighten anyone.

Is it real? If it is, I don't know what's worse--the random mention of Korans or the misuse of the apostrophe.

Canada or any of the other Central American or South
American countries?"

I can't stop laughing.

Even if we assume all this is real, how does it justify the new law?

Do they really think that the Mexican drug cartels, some of the most ruthless, violent gangs in the entire world, are going to be deterred or even hindered by a law which makes police demand identification papers for suspected illegals? Do they really think that will make one iota of difference?

The other important factor here is what happens if this law is enforced. People supporting it seem to think that this is like a video game. You just catch the illegals and they magically dissapear. In reality, they go to those same overcrowded jails, go through the legal process, and then maybe get deported. All of those costs fall on the state and its taxpayers, and I'm willing to bet they aren't minimal.

What the hell is a Koran Bible? Is that some hybrid of the Koran plus the Bible, to form a super holy book?

Its just called the Koran. You wouldn't call something the Bible Talmud, would you?

Appears to be legit

Also, a Democratic Arizona state representative has responded.

Also also, while hunting for those, Google brought up that she believes the Earth is 6,000 years old.

it was an effort to try and stop illegal's from setting up businesses, and employment, and receiving state services

Your elected officials, Arizonans. Enjoy!

Can I just point out (again) that law enforcement say they have no clue who killed Mr. Krantz? Not illegals, not legals, not whites or Hispanics or aliens.

Thx 4 Fish said...

If you are an American living in the 21st century who believes the earth is only 6,000 years old, you can probably be convinced of all sorts of incorrect ideas. Yes, freedom is not free, and a good education isn't effortless.

The border patrol sets up check points 60 miles from the border along highways. THEY DO THIS ALL OVER THE SOUTHWEST. Guess what they're doing--checking cars for illegals, asking for ID-oh just what the AZ law calls for! But that is NOT where they are based. They also have vehicles patroling the border.

I love the fact that the best term she can come up with for people who were forced to carry drugs for the cartels and got shot in escape attempts is "illegals." Such compassion!

This dumb law just ends up diverting money and safety officers AWAY from the REAL problems caused by the drug cartel war that is being waged mostly in Mexico but spills over into the USA from time to time (or US citizens get killed in Mexico).

This is the worst possible time to divert funds from public safety on a useless exercise in futility meant only to make bigots "feel good" and to encourage them to vote for bigot-loving pols. It's quite pathetic.

Yes, it's very sad that Mr. Krantz was killed, but his family and neighbors have stated very publically that it's mostly likely by drug cartel types. What gets left out of these bigoted rightwing propoganda pieces is that Mr. Krantz was very vocal about NOT being "mad" at the illegal people who came to the USA looking for jobs. Long-time US ranchers and Native Americans who live on that border really did not have many issues with those coming to look for jobs. THEY ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.

This is just so much drivel and a real waste of time, money, resources and man-power all in an effort to pander to bigots and idiots who don't do their homework to really understand what's going on.

Hooray4US said...

Agree with ferschitz. This legislation just panders to bigots, diverts funds from programs that are needed to deal with the very real problems along the border with Mexican drug cartels waging war with each other, gun running and the like.

The problems are not with undocumented workers, and even IF they were, then all the AZ government needs to do is crack down on the businesses that hire undocumented workers. This almost never happens; rather the workers are arrested and deported, which is fine, but the businesses suffer no consequences.

If AZ citizens are so concerned about work being done by illegals, then use the current laws to crack down on the businesses that hire them. Simple, really, but you won't see THAT happening.

This current law is actually endangering AZ citizens more than improving the situation. Really dumb but clearly appeals to racists and bigots, so I guess that's why it was inacted. Certainly not gonna improve anything; just gets politicians elected.
