What we are talking about here is the Balkanization and breakup of a nation into ethnic
enclaves. A country that cannot control its borders isn't really a country anymore,
Ronald Reagan reminded us.

The tasks that Arizonans are themselves undertaking are ones that belong by right, the
Constitution and federal law to the Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs
Enforcement, and Homeland Security.

Arizona has been compelled to assume the feds' role because the feds won't do their job. And for that dereliction of duty the buck stops on the desk of the president of the United States.

Why is Obama paralyzed? Why does he not enforce the law, even if he dislikes it, by
punishing the businessmen who hire illegals and by sending the 12 million to 20 million
illegals back home? President Eisenhower did it. Why won't he?

Because he is politically correct. Because he owes a big debt to the Hispanic lobby that
helped deliver two-thirds of that vote in 2008. Though most citizens of Hispanic
descent in Arizona want the border protected and the laws enforced, the Hispanic lobby

demands that the law be changed.
(Column continues below)
Fair enough. But the nation rose up as one to reject the "path-to-citizenship" \u2013 i.e.,
amnesty \u2013 that the 2007 plan of George W. Bush, McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack
Obama envisioned.
Al Sharpton threatens to go to Phoenix and march in the streets against the new Arizona
law. Let him go.

Let us see how many African-Americans, who are today frozen out of the 8 million jobs
held by illegal aliens that might otherwise go to them or their children, will march to
defend an invasion for which they are themselves paying the heaviest price.

Last year, while Americans were losing a net of 5 million jobs, the U.S. government \u2013 Bush and Obama both \u2013 issued 1,131,000 green cards to legal immigrants to come and take the jobs that did open up, a flood of immigrants equaled in only four other years in our history.

What are we doing to our own people?
Whose country is this, anyway?
America today has an establishment that, because it does not like the immigration laws,

countenances and condones wholesale violation of those laws.
Nevertheless, under those laws, the U.S. government is obligated to deport illegal aliens

and punish businesses that knowingly hire them.
This is not an option. It is an obligation.
Can anyone say Barack Obama is meeting that obligation?
