Ala. governor signs tough illegal immigration law
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama’s governor on Thursday signed a tough new illegal immigration crackdown that contains provisions requiring public schools to determine students’ immigration status and making it a crime to knowingly give an illegal immigrant a ride.
The bill also allows police to arrest anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant if they’re stopped for any other reason. Alabama employers also are now required to use a federal system called E-Verify to determine if new workers are in the country legally.
Gov. Robert Bentley said the law is the nation’s toughest, and groups including the American Civil Liberties Union and the Montgomery-based Southern Poverty Law Center agree. The groups say they plan to challenge it.
The legal director for the Southern Poverty Law Center, Mary Bauer, said Thursday that she expects a lawsuit to be filed before the provisions of law are scheduled to take effect on Sept. 1.

Ala. governor signs tough illegal immigration law
Kudos to the state of Alabama on their new immigration law!
Do you know how to tell if you’re doing the right thing where ILLEGAL immigration is concerned? Watch the SPLC and their reaction, the faster they weigh in and become involved with threatening lawsuits and protests, the more RIGHT the law is that they are challenging.
The most frightening words in the English language: States Rights.
Those two words that send chills up the spines of the Obama regime and every other anti-American libber, socialist, communist or any other scumbag that wants to destroy America as it was intended to be.
The state of Georgia has also passed a law cracking down on immigration this year, and civil liberties groups have filed a lawsuit trying to block it too.
Do these *civil liberties* groups operate outside of the law? I’m thinking that they must, otherwise, how could they take umbrage with the passing of JUST laws and their enforcement? What part of ILLEGAL is it that these Morris Dees Bots don’t understand?
Anti-American groups like the SPLC are going to be the death of America, and will work diligently to make ILLEGAL immigration a natural and acceptable business matter if they possibly can.
Perhaps it really IS time to get serious about the Tenth Amendment and the fact that the Federal Government, along with their minions, ie: The SPLC, are the biggest DOMESTIC enemies the American people face.
Does anyone remember this? Are you keeping up on current events?
ATF, DOJ Launch Damage Control Effort over Growing Project Gunrunner Scandal
A major scandal is developing around a signature U.S. effort to track and stop the flow of illicit weapons to Mexico, as officials at the Department of Justice close ranks, hoping to cover up an investigation critics say is responsible for an untold number of dead.
The investigation was known as Project Gunrunner — a joint task force headed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Department of Justice — that took place in 2010.
It was conceived after the bureau was criticized for not conducting more complex investigations on straw buyers — people who were allowed to purchase guns legally in the U.S. — who illegally transport guns into Mexico and sell them to cartels.
So rather than just take down low-level straw buyers here and there, the agency hoped by ‘letting the guns walk’ the sales would lead investigators to cartel members higher up in the organization.
However, whistle-blowers say that never happened. SOURCE
The BATFE and DOJ, think Eric Holder and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama, and then put 2 and 2 together, the picture should become clear almost instantly for anyone with half a brain.
These are the utter MORONS that are accusing every honest, hard working American gun owner of buying guns for the cartels, *straw man purchases* if you will, when in all fact and actuality it is them, the Federal government more than anyone else, and their various agencies, that are supplying cartels with quality weapons.
Now, consider this: Mexican Drug Cartels Allegedly Plot to Shoot ICE Agents and Texas Rangers
(WASHINGTON) — U.S. counter-narcotics officials recently discovered that Mexican drug cartels discussed plots to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and Texas Rangers who patrol the U.S.-Mexico border.
Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Management, disclosed the information during a hearing Thursday morning on how DHS is battling Mexican drug cartels.
A March 2011 law enforcement bulletin “warned that cartels were overheard plotting to kill ICE agents and Texas Rangers guarding the border using AK-47s by shooting at them from across the border,” McCaul said.
U.S. officials could not ascertain how credible the threats were but were concerned enough that they alerted agents operating on the border.
And if that’s not enough for you, here’s one more story from the headlines today, just more proof that the Federal Government is run by MORONS.
Arsenal Found in Mexico Contains Guns From U.S. Probe
An arsenal found in Mexico included at least five assault rifles that U.S authorities trace to a federal operation gone badly awry, according to government documents.
The discovery appears to confirm for the first time fears cited by Republican lawmakers that a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation called Fast and Furious failed to stop guns from ending up with drug gangs in Mexico.
The Fast and Furious program, run by the ATF’s Phoenix office, monitored weapons purchases by suspected gun traffickers who were believed to be funneling weapons to Mexican drug cartels. Some lawmakers say ATF didn’t have the means to track the guns and shouldn’t have used such tactics.
An ATF spokesman declined to comment; citing ongoing investigations, including one ordered by Attorney General Eric Holder that the Justice Department’s inspector general is conducting. SOURCE
This ‘ongoing investigation’ thing, to put it into the simplest of terms, is nothing more than a group of guys at DOJ brainstorming a way to cover their own asses and get out of this with the least amount of damage to Holder and Obama.
So, let’s get back to that Tenth Amendment issue I mentioned earlier.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
We, the states, DO have rights, and regardless the claims of some, the War Between the States was fought over those rights. Slavery was an issue, but it was not THE issue nor was it the root cause. The Confederacy felt that they were being persecuted by the establishment in Washington must like the United States was being persecuted and exploited by England in 1776.
Today the Federal Government is once again reaching far over their designated range and is attempting to control any and everything that happens in all 50 states, or 57 states if you’re Barack Hussein Obama. Just sayin’…
Some states didn’t take kindly to the Federal government and its domination, and on December 20th, 1860, South Carolina held a secession convention in Charleston. The debate was quick and short. Representatives voted unanimously, 169 to 0 for secession. Some states are NOT going to take this treatment sitting still today either.
Remember these words America:
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We may be closer to needing to stand BY those words again than in any time in U.S. history.
I don’t want to see another conflagration like the one that some call *The Civil War*, but if it takes a WAR to re-secure our freedoms, then WAR it needs to be, and I hope the great state of TEXAS leads the way.
