By my estimate in 2006 there were 30 Million illegal Mexican aliens living inside our borders. Now, however, in 2010 their leaders boast about 40 Million criminal invaders seeking citizenship and demanding amnesty by “adverse possession.”
When Phoenix passed Philadelphia becoming the 5th largest metropolitan area in the United States, I knew it was a sham. How did I know? Because I took the stats published in our otherwise severely liberal newspaper, The Arizona Republic, and I did the numbers. Had they not counted the illegal aliens, Phoenix would not be as large.
That newspaper claimed that 85% of Mexicans in Phoenix were here illegally. From the figures available, in 2006 I estimated there were more than 1,000,000 illegal Mexican nationals in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area!
Then, the bottom started falling out of our economy and the rats started leaving in droves, abandoning ship because they were only here for the jobs and the entitlements we lavish upon them. Almost overnight the streets around Phoenix experienced reduced traffic and we could drive freely most of the day. When the illegal’s were here en masse, it was “rush hour” all day long, but once they started going home, we could drive freely again between rush hours. Now, I estimate there are approximately 500,000 illegal Mexican nationals remaining in Phoenix.
Now is the time for the Governor of Arizona to step up and make it State Law that all law enforcement agents shall first confirm the legal status of all persons they come in contact with before they proceed with any other business. This completely eliminates any (false) claims of “racial profiling” because we are doing it to all, to everyone.
Then the State of Arizona needs to make it a crime punishable by fine and imprisonment to hire an illegal alien. It shall be a misdemeanor to employ an illegal alien and it shall be a felony to knowingly employ an illegal alien.
Governor Jan Brewer took a courageous step in signing into Arizona State law a mirror image of the Federal law. It was an ingenuous leap. I applaud Jan Brewer for her courage and fortitude. And at least her detractors have used a flattering photo of her in their “Nazi” posters.
Nevertheless, Govern Brewer’s biggest failing(s) was not taking her complaints to the citizens of Arizona when she saw how badly the former governor, Janet Napolitano had mismanaged the State and the illegal manner in which Napolitano cooked the books and violated the law fiscal ruining Arizona. It would have saved US a lot of trouble not to have Napolitano’s incompetency in DC. Perhaps it’s not too late.
Governor Brewer, Are you listening?
