Why are you still protesting, idiots? You’ve won. For now. Go home…wherever that might be ;]

After Judge Susan Bolton’s partial injunction ruling Wednesday, opponents of SB1070 had basically gotten what they wanted. The injunction negates the ability for police officers to A) automatically check immigration status, and B) require citizenship status papers to be on your person at all times. The only thing SB1070 has done is attempt to stop the exploitation of illegal immigrant workers on street corners.

Today, AFTER the injunction, downtown Phoenix was swarmed with protestors who are still bitching and moaning about SB1070, fighting for…their rights? Or something? I’m not sure, actually. And I’m not sure they are, either. At first, when I heard that there were protestors downtown, I automatically assumed that they’d be protestors in defense of SB1070, protesting against Judge Bolton’s ruling.

…Nope.

The protestors are the same protestors, mainly Hispanic, still bitching about their rights as American citizens. Well, wait a minute. If you’re an American citizen, of Hispanic descent or not, you’re fine and this does not apply to you. It isn’t about citizenship. It’s about the lack of. The title, illegal immigrant, sums it up. Most of us here are immigrants, of the legal variety. For those who are not, of course you’re worried. Illegal is illegal, no matter what country or state you’re in. If I go to Canada, as a non-Canadian citizen, and bitch and moan about my lack of rights…obviously I’m not going to get anywhere as it’s not my place to say, one way or another.

Some of the signs, as you may see in the article and pictures posted in this entry, are proclaiming ridiculous things like, “Stop Separations of Families!” Ok, idiots. I feel like we’ve covered this before. But if you’re an illegal alien, you’re going to have to suffer the punishment. Whether that’s being deported, or going to jail, you’re going to be separated from your family. That’s your own fault. Again, we’ll use Canada as an example. If I go to Canada with my family, and cross the border illegally and I’m arrested for doing so, I will be taken from my family and it will be my own damn fault. When you make a decision to do something illegal, whateverthefuck the reasoning for doing so is, you get to suffer the punishments. They are your own fault.

I’m all for a valid argument from either side. If you argue intelligently and coherently and understands what you’re arguing…more power to you, whether I agree or not. But to argue something that has not only already been decided on, in YOUR favor, but that doesn’t make sense in the first goddamn place…you should be punched in the mouth, verbally and physically.

The issue is going to be a long and drawn out one- there will be appeals, and potentially a Supreme Court hearing. Until then, shut the fuck up. Honestly. If someone were to ask any of the hundreds of idiots in downtown Phoenix protesting today, why they’re protesting, I promise that half wouldn’t have an answer, and the other half would state something to the effect of “we’re fighting for our rights!”

Er, what rights? Do you know what an injunction is? Can you read? And if not, has someone translated to you in Spanish what judge Bolton’s ruling means?

I’m all for SB1070, and I’m all for seeing judge Bolton’s decision appealed as I don’t agree with her argument and reasoning for ruling against the status check or requirement for carrying papers. Her ruling, essentially, was due to the inconvenience that it may cause for persons being checked, and the federal government, as it might overstep their pre-existing agenda. Yeah, what? The partial injunction was not due to the racially prejudice attempts at catching illegal immigrants, it was ruled so because of the inconveniences caused on these potential illegal immigrants. How fucking far out of whack are your priorities, Susan Bolton? Twit.

The actual argument AGAINST SB1070 is invalid. The deeper issue and cause for a lot of the immigration problems is the process and time necessary to get a green card, visa, or American citizenship. The office that handles such is years and years backed up. This is obviously a problem. Fuck amnesty and fuck SB1070. Work on making the process for becoming a LEGAL citizen more expedited, and decrease a lot of these issues over time…two birds, one stone. I’m no genius, but that makes a lot more sense to me than going through this same cyclical bullshit.

And seriously, protestors, go home. I’m embarrassed for you. Do you not understand how stupid you look, protesting a cause that you’ve technically won? Why are you still there? Do you know? You should all be slapped. With an American flag.

    Dude this pisses me off too. What they don’t tell you is they aren’t really bitching about the rights, they don’t think we should be kicking illegals out either.

    I read an article recently in a magazine about honor crimes. Which is where, from my understanding, parents kill their children because they have become too…Americanized. Really?! If you don’t want your children to become Americanized and do things Americans do then maybe you shouldn’t have come to America. (I guess something happened in the Glendale area a few years back, which is who the article focused on)
    However all this law stuff going on right now is going to change the state childcare system and I think that will have a huge impact on an already weakened childcare system as far as messing up court and parental rights, by adding more loop holes and drawing out procedures. Of course I don’t fully agree with you in your point to speed the process up of legal residency. It should be a process and I don’t feel it is the best use of our countries government workers to spend time on making the US more crowded when we can’t even provide jobs for the people already here, and I don’t wanna hear the bull shit about “well no one else will work the fields!” Make it harder to become a legal citizen and you will lessen the work load that way.

      Even if the process isn’t expedited, it needs to be more streamlined. Right now it’s not, and if it were a more streamlined and efficient process, it would cost less and take up less man hours to do, which frees up money.

  3. Thank you for the rant! My favorite quote out of this came from an ACLU attorney representing a 20-year old illegal in Georgia… something along the lines of “defending her for doing nothing wrong.” He seemed to overlook the obvious: being in this country *illegally*.

    Also, great retort on Miss Displaced this afternoon. I am glad someone said something about it. Her opening line killed me “I got my remaining unemployment” … no, darling… you got *additional* unemployment. It’s a gift, and be grateful.

    Cheers!

    I agree. The administration made claims of discrimination, divisive hyperbole, and then sued claiming it conflicted with federal law. lol They don’t have a legal leg to stand on. Colorado, Nebraska, and Tennessee all have state immigration laws in the same vein. Arizona’s is the first with teeth. In the end it’s just going to be a huge scar for this administration come 2012.

    “House Bill 2013” and “SB1070”

    0 = Arizona
    2 = USA/ Our Constitution/ We the People of the United States

    This month of July 2010, our U.S. Federal courts have found the so called State of Arizona hate filled legislation namely “House Bill 2013” and “SB1070” Un-constitution (So much for the intellect of Jan Brewer, “Did you read the bills you signed?”). But we all know that they will go crying to the Supreme Court of the United States, please, please, please go. We will fight you in Arizona, any other state, and yes in Washington DC. We will not tire, we will not be silent and we will persevere, I promise you. We are a country that is ruled by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, not by the majority of the day. When you do not know the principles in these documents, therein lays the problem in losing when you are challenged in court.

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs and hate on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    It’s all about politics: Jan Brewer you were never elected to be Governor, but you have no problem trying to get elected on the back of undocumented workers, you loser (sure you may win but the long-term effects to your so called State is just beginning). Here is a partial list of your hate filled legislation;

    1. S.B. 1070,
    2. House Bill 2013
    3. No permit conceal weapons law,
    4. The famous Birthers law,
    5. Banning Ethnic studies law,

    6. Could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona, ordered to be whiten,
    7. On deck to pass, no citizenship to babies born to undocumented workers,

    8. If she can read she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which was un-constitution and failed when legally challenged),
    9. The boycotted Martin Luther King Day, what idiots don’t want another holiday? Yes, you guessed it Arizona.

    Well Arizona, you can keep boycotting new holidays, passing hate filled legislation and the rest of our country will continue to challenge you in court of law and Boycott your so-called state.

    Lets face it, no one can real believe anything that comes out of Brewer’s mouth, in an interview, this year, in an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. But we are suppose to believe everything else she says, right!

    As they say in the World Cup: Gooooooooal!

    Since when has any of this been about Jan Brewer? Excuse much? No one gives a fuck about her. So let’s focus on who and what actually matter. illegal is illegal, no? If I murder someone, I go to prison, right? It’s illegal to do so and I would pay for it by way of the law. Similarly, “illegal” immigrants must be forced with the same. If you’re legal, there are no issues. If not, you get the fuck out and/or suffer consequences.

    Second, all politicians lie and defend or fight for what they believe in, or whatever will get them reelected, right? Stop being a fucking moron. No one gives a fuck what happened to her father, or what bills she’s tried to negate and fight. Find a politician, republican or democrat, who doesn’t have a list of bills they’ve tried to overturn. Or better yet, find one who hasn’t turned to the Constitution or Supreme Court to aid in their efforts.

    …it won’t happen. you won’t find shit. do you know why? Because this is their job, fucking twit. so before you litter my blog with garbage that not only make you seem like an inept fucking ‘tardfuck, point your finger in the other direction and negate that parties own faults first.

    I give props to Arizona for being the one, non-Southern, United State that still allows its racist flag fly. MLK? Who cares? The state’s like the GOP testing ground for future hot-button issues!

    • rosslongaz says:

      Racist flag? Seriously, retards, you’re welcome to comment on any and all of my posts…but do it while hiding your ineptitudes.

      First, because Arizona is trying to keep it’s state LEGAL does not make it racist, twit. And again, I don’t know why this is so fucking hard for you idiots to understand, but illegal is illegal. Do i need to explain what that word means? Put on your helmet and drool guard, I’ll try and keep it simple so as to allow for understanding.

      Illegal:
      1. forbidden by law or statute.
      2. contrary to or forbidden by official rules, regulations, etc.: The referee ruled that it was an illegal forward pass.

      Do you still follow? So, if someone is in the united States and/or Arizona ILLEGALLY, it would be what….wrong? Illegal? Yes? Do you still follow?

        “The injunction negates the ability for police officers to A) automatically check immigration status, and B) require citizenship status papers to be on your person at all times.”

        I think most people that have a problem with this isn’t over the deportation, but requiring one to carry proof of citizenship at all times. That’s the part that would be abused. The idea that “hey, he’s got brown skin, let’s see if he has his papers on him!” If this was restricted to checking on a person after a law had been broken, it would be different. Hell, if they offered to pay anyone who was stopped and forced to provide ID, but were legal, say $50 for their trouble, there’d be less crying about it.

    There were protests of the SB1070 enactment in Tucson as well.

    When I saw what was going on, I couldn’t believe my eyes, especially since the heart of the bill was blocked by Judge Bolton. Still people were out protesting!

    Part of me thinks that sometimes people are fighting and protesting just for the sake of doing so – mob mentality. For the most part, I certainly believe that all this furor will die down almost immediately.

    The larger question is how the Ninth Circuit will rule on this case in November. I’ll go out on a limb and guess that they’ll affirm Judge Bolton’s order. Arizona may have to come up with another way of dealing with the immigration issue.

    (And if the Ninth Circuit rules as I suspect, I bet there will be more “protests” again).
