Shurtleff hopes to modify law to end challenge
"Stopping and questioning someone locally based solely on their skin color
is profiling, Burbank said."No one is calling for stopping or
questioning persons based solely on skin color. Not a single soul. So then what is Burbank's point? Is Burbank subtly IMPLYING, with an intent
to mislead, that this is what Utah's immigration enforcement bill, HB497, and
Arizona's bill, SB 1070, are about, when he knows perfectly well that each of
these laws specifically prohibit profiling on the sole basis of race, that these
bills therefore are no more "inviting" of such profiling than any
other law in the book? He's not? Okay, then, so again, what then
is his point? Burbank talks about bias, and non-bias. But why is
he okay with assisting in the enforcement of some federal laws, such as those
related to bank robbery, but biased against assisting with the enforcement of
other federal laws, such as immigration law? By taking a stand
against such enforcement at the local level, Burbank is helping to facilitate
the illegal-alien invasion that is destroying this country.
I have a question I'd honestly like answered. If an owner of a fruit farm needs
100 employees for an upcoming harvest and only 20 citizens apply for a job, what
should he do? I do believe there is a small percentage of citizens willing to
take these jobs, but not enough to fill the need. I would say that common supply
and demand would push the employers to raise wages and entice more citizens, but
that would hurt the small business owner and/or affect prices. I think we must
find a better solution to control immigration, but at the current moment we rely
on illegals. We can't just kick them out, we have to ween ourselves off of them
first. Alabama may have dropped unemployment by 1% but they are having a hard
time filling every needed position. The small business owners are really
struggling without enough labor and if they go under, nobody has a job.Tell me what you think. I know most people have a more firm stance on illegal
immigration, but this is something to consider. How do we remove illegals
without crushing small business owners that rely on them?
wrz: Thanks for the intelligible comment. I have to say that last line about
getting in line had me laughing.
The Feds suing a state (again) because the Feds won't do THEIR job?I'm not surprised by the ridiculous things this administration does anymore.
Obama lacks the wisdom and leadership skills to lead a group of Girl Scouts out
of a wet paper sack.November 2012: Our last chance to save America!
Obama going after just the states that want to enforce the laws, shows the
dishonest side of the discussion. It's not about the Federal governments
exclusive rights, or the sanctuary cities would not exist. Obama would have them
in court also. His fixed deportation numbers should infuriate Americans. Turning
people away at the border should not be counted as deportations. Border, E-verify, etc, enforcing one law will not solve the problem, we must
enforce all of them. As for people who have been here for 25 years.
They are the ones who have no intention of becoming citizens. They have lived
off the American taxpayer for 25 years, they should feel guilty instead of
@KM:"I have a great idea...Secure the border."Never happen. Many fly in over the border. Others (fully 40 percent) come here
on legal documentation, including student, tourist, and work visas, but
overstay. They stay on and on. They forget to go home.Furthermore,
at busy check points on the Texas border vehicle traffic is so heavy that no one
is stopped for inspection... going both ways. Totally uncontrolled.The only way to stop illegal immigration is to enforce federal laws governing
employment of illegals in the US, using all the tools available, including
E-Verify.And immigration must be stemmed else we become totally
overrun and turn ourselves into just another third world nation where the
language of foreigners may well become the dominant language.
@Teka - Neither Bush did or Obama is enforcing the 1986 immigration law, but for
different reasons. Meanwhile we pay and the legal immigrants stand in line and
wait. Say hello to the Abdullah Fouad Companies for me. I worked there for
years. @one day - You are confused about illegal labor &
immigrants (they are legal). My legal immigrant father-in-law cleans toilets at
one of the big box stores and is thrilled to have that job. wrz -
You are spot on. Just Gordon - You are really confused.
Isn't that the gun runner Erick Holder that is suing Utah over enforcing the
immigration laws. No room to talk and no leg to stand on!!!
Obama to the rescue. Don't enforce the federal law so the states will feel like
they have to. I have a great idea...Secure the border. Then we can talk about
amnesty. Every once in a while politicians will enforce the immigration law but
the funny thing is that without first securing the border it doesn't matter.
They just waltz right back into the U.S.
Allow the local county sheriff to uphold his Constitutional Oath and serve the
people who elected him. The sheriff is the supreme law enforcement of the land
and needs to rid our counties of illegals. We are a nation of law. Holder may
find himself in a local jail if the sheriff keeps his oath. I like
the idea of work camps that help pay for the less fortunate. Thugs would stay
clear of a constitutional sheriff and a county that is well armed with educated,
American-sovereigns. We make this life way too difficult than what it has to
@JKayDS:"I have read in some articles that it is not just the
low paying jobs that the illegals are taking these days, but some high end type
jobs also."You go that right. The 'jobs Americans won't take'
is a red herring to suck us all in to believing we should be nice and let them
flood in to take that work."I mean, we give then a discounted
college education why not use that to take away better paying jobs from our
citizens also.."There's the proof of what I'm saying. They
don't need a college education to do jobs Americans won't take... such as
picking apples and making motel beds."...all they have to do is
steal an SSI and other ID documentation."That's the angle Utah
law enforcement should be going after. ID theft, which is a violation of state
law. But, for some strange reason they won't touch it. Elect me, Mr. Bean, and
I'll go after 'em.
@JustGordon:"Ronald Reagan offered amnesty. I find it ironic
that Republicans now would find Reagan so liberal as to not vote for
him!"Ronald Reagan would likely be among the first to now admit
his amnesty program was wrong-headed. He didn't know it would invite millions
of illegals to come for the same treatment. Besides, he had amnesty hooked to
completely closing off the border... which didn't happen and ain't never gonna
I have read in some articles that it is not just the low paying jobs that the
illegals are taking these days, but some high end type jobs also. I mean, we
give then a discounted college education why not use that to take away better
paying jobs from our citizens also.. all they have to do is steal an SSI and
other ID documentation. Also, if employers would pay a decent wage I am sure
more people would take the jobs. It's not so much that we feel to good to do the
low jobs but that we have to support families with all the financial
responsibilities that entails and most people cannot do that on lower the medium
Ronald Reagan offered amnesty. I find it ironic that Republicans now would find
Reagan so liberal as to not vote for him! If Reagan is to the "far
left" now, God save this Republic from those who would move us so far to
the right as to make the Founding Father's question what they had wrought for
Time to clean the house, to be honest nobody in the congress or the president
(and all those before) have worked for the people in this country, they get
money from the corporations, to eliminate, create and change was to help them to
make more money. Economic crisis made by and for those ones in power...again we
paid for it! Sad but those ones that received our vote, doesnt matter rep or dem
are working for their own pocket$.They make money from US citizens and
Illegals, its all about money.We lost our country years ago!
@Freedom-In-Danger:"Or can we not pass laws that simply say 'we
can enforce the law'?"That certainty would be a good approach.
But apparently we can't since Holder insists it's a federal issue to enforce.However, there are provisions in the federal law that allows states to
partnership with the fed to enforce federal law. Some states have this type of
agreement but Utah does not.Speaking of AG Holder... he needs to try
to keep up on so-called Fast and Furious gun walking. And he needs to take
legal action against the Black Panther group intimidation at voting places...
And why doesn't he? His response... 'becasue they're my people.'@atl134:"Hey, they can't even vote..."That's
not the problem... The problem is, their citizen friends and relatives vote for
their cause. Plus, many states do not validate citizenship for those who turn
out to vote. ACORN signed up illegals to vote on many cases.@tabuno:"Hopefully this lawsuit will be an opportunity for
Herbert's administration to work with the Obama administration to work out a
comprehensive, acceptable path for immigration reform."We
already have such a path... It's simple. Go home. Get in line.
@ "one day" Funny you should ask!From the time I was
13-17 I worked at Granite schools district doing those things you describe
during the school year. Then, during the summer I worked in the orchards of
Orem/Provo alongside illegal immigrants.SOME kids won't do that kind
of work anymore. But, some might!Problem is, we'll never know if
they will or not because THOSE jobs are already taken.Don't we owe
it to ALL the entry level workers to FORCE employers to at least pay the minimum
wage along with state/federal taxes, etc. Many don't. Thats why they hire
illegal immigrants.How can a LEGITIMATE employer compete with that?
If the Federal government was not so busy suppressing US production of energy,
produce, manufacturing, etc, we would have so much industry here we would be
begging foreigners to come here and help us produce. Jobs would be plentiful, we
would have more money to spend and immigration issues would be non existent.No, illegal immigration is not the problem. The Federal government is.
Obama has to go first. Then his henchmen. Then most Senators and Congressmen
that love money and power more than their constituents. Time to
Americans need those jobs, and Alabama proves that getting rid of illegal labor
puts Americans back to work. REALLY??? Would you clean my bathroom, my
house, paint houses, @ construction sites, warehouses etc at low pay, no
benefits and more than 40 hrs a week, I don't think so! that's why you need
immigrants, to do the job that NOBODY wants to do! sad, honest and true! dont
blame the immigrants, blame your system!
@ "Tekakaromatagi"There haven't REALLY been higher
deportation numbers. Napolitano, Holder, Obama, et.al. have just changed the
way they "count" deportations.Among other things; now, if
a border agent catches an illegal 5 feet inside the border and tells him to
"go home" THATS considered an "apprehension and
deportation"! They didn't use to count those. There are some other
"fudging the numbers", "cooking the books" issues, but you
probably get the idea!This "cooking of the books" is
purely a deceptive move on the part of an administration that DOESN'T WANT to do
their job! They think we're stupid!Obviously they DON'T WANT
immigration enforcement to occur at all since they won't even let the states do
it for them!
I really am impressed with the way the Feds handle illegal immigration...
impressed at how well they do nothing. Does Eric Holder fail to understand what
"illegal" means?If you have the proper documentation with
you, then you won't be detained... but wait you say.. that is like fascist!
Well, considering well have to carry "papers" called our drivers
license or other ID.... pretty much the same thing. You also have to
wonder where a lot of illegals are getting their false SSNs.... HmmmBut wait! Not only do you get an fake SSN, but you get free food and living
off the backs of legal citizens.Oh sorry... I, a legal citizen, who
is a disabled veteran, who was not even born here.... am being insensitive....
somehow, I don't care. You want to be here legally? You do it like my family
did or you get out. I bled for America, not illegals.
THIS is why the government wants to raise my taxes? And the taxes of the rich?
So they can sue their own states?
I am hearing people say here that the federal government is not enforcing the
law, but then I hear in other news reports that a lot of illegals are being
deported by the Obama administration, even more so than the Bush
administration.Of course, if the federal government is so big into
the separation of powers, then they should stay out of education.That is good news that Alabama has declining unemployment.
The Utah law as written may invite profiling and low grade harassment of people
who happen to look the part but aren't. Given our history, of Utah AND the
nation this isn't acceptable. President Obama recognizes this.We can
keep our law, we just need to take out those parts that invite discrimination.
DaleCI understand your point and concern.But, what about the family
of US citizens that cannot get a job and pay their bills and are losing their
homes etc.. do they not also deserve your concern and charity. If we open our
doors to all the weak and downtrodden then soon we will become a nation of weak
and downtrodden ourselves. There are poor and weak people ALL OVER this world
that would love to be here. WHY are we allowing the Latinos the right to come
here at their will breaking our laws and not allowing others the same
opportunity? How fair is that to the people who are doing it the right way and
waiting and working to do all they can to come here correctly and not under the
wire? OH and by the way... just because we want people to OBEY our laws, does
NOT mean that we hate them!!! In my opinion they show more hate towards us when
they come here illegally. I personally don't care what their nationally is - if
they are here illegally then they are putting our lives and country at risk..
and that is not love!!!
Whichever way you lean politically, consider the bigger picture here related to
politicizing law enforcement.Thats a very common trait of 3rd world
countries.Up until now the U.S. hasn't had that problem. Sure, law
enforcement can't be everywhere at once, but when they REFUSE to even take into
custody law breakers, think what COULD come next.Today its' failure
to enforce illegal immigration violations (or let the states do it), whats next?
I understand some of the frustration over this issue, but I have a Latino
neighbor who is a young mother of two small children and is going through a
divorce. The husband refuses to pay support. She can't get a job because of
the law and can't pay her rent and no one can help her pay her rent because of
the law. There is no help! Maybe some people do need to go back, but we need to
have some compassion and make sure our laws do not hurt the week and
downtrodden. Also, I would like to remind us of what John said, "If anyone
says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love
his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.
This is *exactly* what I'm talking about when I say we need a Constitutional
Convention.Power needs to be stripped from the greedy and corrupt
federal government and given back to the states, where it belongs.
I am very surprised at some of the comments. Do you not have to take a course
in high school in Utah to understand the basics of the US Constitution,
particularly the separation of powers between the States and the US Government?
This is sort of like a bad boss who doesn't do his job and is risking the
company to go down hard. So you jump in, try to save the company, then your
boss sues you for not doing his job the way he wanted.
Sue Utah for enforcing Federal Law. Wow. The constitution says,
the federal government is responsible to establish "an uniform rule on
naturalization," not immigration rules. Go figure. So we should now stop
catching bank robbers, because that is a "federal" crime? There is a bigger end game afoot.
The feds may sue, and they may twist the facts and the law enough to win.But they are still wrong.The root cause of so many of our
problems is that the feds have totally failed, no, they have totally abandoned,
their very real responsibility to control our borders and enforce immigration
laws.It they won't, then who will? If they won't allow the states to
do so, then the essential question is "Why not?"It appears
that some in this administration do not love this country, or want to do their
Constitutional job to defend our country and constitution against all enemies
foreign and domestic.
Hopefully this lawsuit will be an opportunity for Herbert's administration to
work with the Obama administration to work out a comprehensive, acceptable path
for immigration reform. Will all the work that this State put into it, it has
the best chance to become a national model for the rest of the Country,
something that Congress and Obama could move towards in passing next year. If
Utah can support this reform model, then the rest of the Country might be able
to accept it too.
Neither party will address the real issue of the porous border. When Bush was
approached by states concerened over illegal immigration he totally ducked the
issue. Had he not he would have lost all popularity at home as Texas runs on
the hired help.When approached about healthcare reform Bush chose
not to address the issue. Had he actually lead as presidents should, the GOP
may have been able to set aside all the confusion this country has experienced
over the past 3 years.Now we have lived through this I am not in a
rush to reinstae the other party just because they are the other party. This
time I want somebody responsible to be elected. Someone who will change the way
our country does business.We cannot afford to pay the military a
billion a day. We cannot afford to run bases overseas like it was 1967, nor do
we need to.We can't afford 20 million illegals in the country. We
cannot afford to have state people like Shurtleff who wants to run his own
country. We are all grateful for the work he has done but are more grateful he
@Andrew Marksen"Gotta solidify that illegal immigrant voter base
right Mr. President? I notice the Democrats in Utah, the ones who have our best
interests at heart support this nonsense. No such thing as right and wrong for a
Democrat, for them breaking the law is condoned as long as the votes turn up for
them in November. "Heh, they can't even vote (and if you want
to argue that they do then have fun coming up with documented cases that they
do). Besides the LDS church (hardly a liberal entity) is against splitting up
families and amusingly Gingrich took a fairly similar position in the debate
last night. On the plus side, considering Romney's attacks on Gingrich for that
stance we can see that Romney's definitely not going to just follow church
The fact that more than 50% of the voting public leans to the far left, how will
it be possible, as suggested earlir, to vote out the incumbents? Secondly, what
makes us think these people will vote themselves out of power by setting term
limits? With as much debate, outrage and protest as there has been
(Arizona in particular) over the years due to our failed immigration policy,
what of real substance has changed? There's too much power to be lost if our
elected officals do what's right. And, as long as the Federal Government
continues to do nothing, the states have every right to enforce the laws and
protect it's citizens.Finally, I have a question. What
constitutional rights does a person have who is not a citizen of the U.S., and
who enters our country illegally? It would appear that the government bends
over backwards to insure they have every advantage; whereas, our constitutional
rights are trampled on daily.
"The federal lawsuit suit claims that HB497 is unconstitutional because it
attempts to establish a state immigration policy."While I think
that immigration is best handled on the federal level (and few things are as I
see it) ...the attempt for Utah to pass laws is by all means not
unconstitutional. If the constitution says 'undocumented immigration is okay'
then we'd be wrong for enforcing legitimate citizenship, etc. If the
constitution said 'you have to be legit' then our laws would only enforce and
sustain the supreme law of the land. If the constitution doesn't say anything at
all about it, then the laws are left to the states respectively.So
by all means, laws aren't unconstitutional that merely enforce the very same
constitution and the laws below it. This attempt only further places doubt on
our judicial branch's ability to understand law.Or can we not pass
laws that simply say 'we can enforce the law'?I'm all for peaceful
and a welcoming but safe immigration policy. However, this case has no merit and
only wastes even more tax dollars than the federal government is currently.
States have sadly lost too much power as it is.
Notice that the Regime sues on this law but leaves the amnesty (116) alone.
Shows their true colors. Amnesty is their keyword.
Illegal is illegal. They broke the laws of our country, send them home and
secure the borders. Bring our troops home to protect our country that is under
siege. More people are dying in the war in our own country due to these
illegals bringing their gangs and drugs across the border with them. Get tough
America. Vote for people who want to have immigration that is legal.
The real disgrace here is Sandstrom's attempt to put the boot of the law on the
neck of a bunch of poor people based on the color of their skin.We need to
debate comprehensive change to the immigration laws, we don't need anything like
Sandstrom's attempt at elimintation of immigration, we do need to open the door
to our friends, we do need to help others in our hemisphere who only walked
across a line in the sand to our relatively opulent economy, we do need to think
about sharing our wealth with our friends in need.The real disgrace here
includes attitudes of hate and exclusion towards our neighbors and friends from
south of the border.Go, Holder! Stop Sandstrom's bad law. Then
let's continue a discussion about how we as a state and a region and a country
can help raise up the standard of living for a few of our poor neighbors. The
Utah Compact has good points.
This is a stretch to sue 4-5 states for trying to maintain state integrity. The Federal Government hasnt done anything in this administration to
stop the border flow. The U.S. attorney-general doesnt want the
case to go to court, even though he says he is suing the State as it will bring
up a lot of infighting within the Federal Government, not just the issue of
Over the years, immigrant votes have been a very serious tactic for people such
as the Clintons and the President today. There has never been a serious study
on the impact of illegal alien voting when they are not citizens. Why protect
their votes when they are not legal to vote. The politicians want the whole
support of that block on their election day. Not closing the border is not just
one party, as it impacts on all parties, even Independents. The U.S. has always
had border requirements on highways but it wasnt until the U.S. started having a
drug problem that there was more government agents on the border, DEA, etc.
That brought in the ATF due to the weapons and drugs interconnect. With the
advent of Homeland Security, there should have been more of a concerted effort
but there wasnt as it is a very political agency linked with more sub-agencies
under their control.
Why doesn't Utah enforce the 1986 Immigration Reform Act signed into law by
President Reagan. It was one of President Reagan's crowning achievement of his
administration instead of blaming President Obama? How can our local
Constitutional expert Carl Wimmer, allow all of this to happen and not enforce
Reagan's law? What a joke Wimmer has become in Utah.
The Church said they supported the 4 bills as a package. When the guest worker
bill came under fire, they fought for it. Will they also fight for the
enforcement part of the package? Obama has proved that the executive
branch can't be trusted to run immigration alone. It needs to have a partnership
with congress. Our government has a responsibility to it's people,
it either lives up to it's commitment, or the people need to change it. I have
lost trust and faith over the illegal immigration issue. Americans
need those jobs, and Alabama proves that getting rid of illegal labor puts
Americans back to work.
Federal law 287(g) encourages local participation in interdiction of illegal
aliens. Recent POLICY changes made by Obama in that program require local
agencies to "follow Federal priorities". Those priorities were
expressed when Janet Napolitano announced that they would no longer be deporting
anyone not convicted of a felony because of a lack of manpower. Talk about
laying out the welcome mat for illegal aliens! They bring suit
because "it is a federal issue" and therefore unconstitutional for
local agencies to assist with enforcement of federal law. That of course makes
the federal law 287(g) unconstitutional. I haven't seen them declare that states
cannot assist with enforcement of other federal laws such as controlled
substance violations. Nor have they brought suit against certain left-coast
states whose pot laws are directly contradictory to federal drug laws.There is nothing about the Utah law that is contradictory to Federal law. They
want to be perceived as tough on crime but refuse to assign enough people,
enable catch and release policies, and refuse assistance.There is no
logic in this argument, only deception and ulterior motives.
Alabama's new laws are proof that self deportation laws are working and put
Americans back to work. Look at their unemployment numbers."September was the first full month that the reform was in force, andthe unemployment rate fell from 9.8 percent in September to 9.3 percentin October, according to a Nov. 18 report from the state government.The rates fell from 9.9 percent to 9 percent in Etowah County, from8.8
percent to 8.1 percent in Marshall county, and from 11.6 percent to10.6
percent in DeKalb county."We have a solution to immigration and
to a jobs bill.
Re: Makid continuedAnd I do not believe that Democrats are sincere
in wanting to increase taxes to reduce the deficit. They want to increase taxes
to appease their voting base, to hurt business, to consolidate power with the
federal government, and to avoid cutting favored programs. The
federal government has more money rolling into the treasury than ever before in
American history. They don't have a money problem. They have a huge spending
problem. Social programs of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security
are exploding the budget. Another source are retirement funds of federal
workers.It is also frustrating to have read that the reduction in
military spending that is now required (because an agreement was reached by the
super committee) is really a reduction in the growth of military spending. The
annual military spending would have been over $700 billion, but will now be only
over $600 billion. Spending increases will drop from 23% to only 16%.
Republican fear mongering over military spending in this scenario is similar to
Democratic fear mongering over social programs to score political points.
Spending must be reduced so stop acting this way...both Democrats &
Republicans! Get the job done!
Re: MakidI never vote straight party. I haven't voted for a
Republican governor since Leavitt in the early 90's. I don't
ascribe, necessarily, to term limits either. But I do hope that every American
will study the issues, learn about candidates, and vote for the man that will be
best, and honest. When I stated that we must continue what was
started in 2010, I didn't mean to vote Republican only. Instead, we must vote
for what is best for America. Current federal spending levels are not in the
best interest of America if we want to avoid what is happening in Europe with
Greece, Italy, etc. Our spending levels are not sustainable.In 2010
we voted in a group of new congressmen and senators that vowed to change federal
spending, decrease the size of government. I say we must continue that effort
until the government actually follows through on this. The current
fiasco with the special committee, who was to come up with a bipartisan plan to
reduce the deficit, was another display of partisan selfishness. Vote them out.
Vote Republican or Democrat, as long as they will decrease spending.
I agree David but, that means we must vote out all incumbents. The only way
that they will get the message in Washington is if there is a constant new House
of Representatives every 2 years and each Senator is only in office for 6
years.Both parties are to blame. I do hope that you are planning to
vote for something other than an (R) next to it if you expect any changes coming
from Utah as the current group are complicate to just keep the current state of
immigration affairs as can be seen by the bills that have been brought forth by
the current Utah representatives.
"A patchwork of immigration laws is not the answer and will only create
further problems in our immigration system," U.S. Attorney General Eric
Holder said in a statement."The federal government is the chief
enforcer of immigration laws, and while we appreciate cooperation from states,
which remains important, it is clearly unconstitutional for a state to set its
own immigration policy."OK, Mr President and Congress, if
states cannot pass laws to deal with immigration, then why don't you do it?The fact is, the federal government has completely ignored this issue
because of politics. It is sad that our national leaders do not do what is
right for America. They only try to do what is in their own selfish, individual
interests to remain in power.Sick sick sick. Voters can change
Washington by continuing what was started in 2010.
Tell the Feds to enforce or the States will leave the Union, i am willing to bet
they would give in
Wouldn't it be nice if our federal government were as concerned about the rights
of ACTUAL legal citizens as they are about the rights of illegal alien
trespassers?One can dream!
Gotta solidify that illegal immigrant voter base right Mr. President? I notice
the Democrats in Utah, the ones who have our best interests at heart support
this nonsense. No such thing as right and wrong for a Democrat, for them
breaking the law is condoned as long as the votes turn up for them in November.
The Feds ignore their responsibilities with respect to immigration and then sue
Utah because they are trying to handle the problem. Eric Holder's logic is the
same as his Fast and Furious debacle - flawed. He should be added to the list of
those seeking employment.
What a disgrace this administration is, they won't do their job and enforce the
law and then sue their own states who try to do their job for them. 2012 can't
come soon enough, if ever there was a President who needs to go it is this one.
It's always about politics with him, he is trying to pander to Hispanics, plain
and simple and doesn't care how many Americans suffer as a result of it. Barack
Obama has never stopped running for office beginning about eight years ago.
Everything is about him and getting more and more power. And to have a
disgraceful attorney general like Holder, who has the fast and furious blood of
a border agent on his hands, leading the charge to stop the enforcement of our
immigration laws makes this all the more shameful. Holder needs to resign or be
fired and Obama needs to be impeached for failing to protect the borders of the
United States, it's his duty under the constitution. Instead here we are as
state defending ourselves in court. Unbelievable.
