A Few New Voices on the Arizona Law

Tomorrow is the scheduled enforcement date for the infamous Arizona law regarding the potential inquiry into the legal status of people who’ve already been stopped by the police.  Since it mirrors existing federal law and actually is more lenient, the reason people oppose this law is either through insidious racial politicking or through media-driven ignorance.  If I get pulled over by the police in New Jersey I have to show them my license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance — three forms of ID and I’m a lily white boy!  Where are all the protests about Jersey’s law?  Easy:  driving is a privilege not a right, folks.

Even the MSM can’t hide the people’s support of the Arizona law around the nation.  In fact, just the other day musician Elton John came out against those boycotting Arizona as he played in Tucson Arena saying:

“We are all very pleased to be playing in Arizona.  I have read that some of the artists won’t come here.  They are (expletive) wits!  Let’s face it:  I still play in California, and as a gay man I have no legal rights whatsoever. So what’s the (expletive) with these people?”

Geez!  First Rush’s wedding, now this?  Good for him — a Brit who understands capitalism!  Also, there’s a pro-legal immigration group called “Americans for Legal Immigration” who are stressing the government simply make the exodus easier by setting up stations to process people getting out of the country.  They believe comprehensive enforcement will work just fine if implemented in an orderly manner.

Tomorrow’s the big day — protests are planned and since many are leftist-driven there may be trouble, though we truly hope not.

UPDATE:  Today a federal judge has blocked four important parts of the law until the government’s lawsuits run their course.  This should irk a lot of people around the country, including some of the tomorrow’s pro-law protesters.
