1930’s Nazi-like witch hunt to begin after Arizona passes tough illegal immigrant law

 

Arizona HB 1070 lets loose the dogs

Governor Jan Brewer voiced concerns over certain provisions of the Arizona law that require law enforcement to hunt down illegal immigrants and all of those who look like illegal immigrants. 

The round up could mirror that of Nazi Germany when the rouge country went after the Jewish community.  At least the French deported them.  Refugee immigrants are likely to flee Arizona in a desperate attempt to stay out of trouble with the law. 

jews_france_0217 Hate based legislation spreads, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and California likely will absorb a fair number of fleeing immigrants.  Legislation to combat the terror stricken and fleeing community of undocumented workers may follow.

Of the states mentioned, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and California, the state of Colorado is most likely to follow suit with anti-immigrant legislation.  Currently, it competes with Arizona as one of the most unfriendly states in the U.S. when it comes to those who seek a way to put food on the table for their little ones.  For example, Colorado won’t provide treatment to a breast cancer victim until she is on her death bed.  However, if Governor Brewer signs the anti-illegal immigrant law into effect, Arizona will take the gold medal hands down for “No immigrants in my restaurant!”

The law requires law enforcement to identify undocumented workers and arrest them for deportation.  Anyone who looks like an undocumented worker is subject to stop under the theory of “reasonable suspicion”.  The trick is how to be Latino but not appear to be “illegal”.

Sheriff “Little Joe” Arpaio admits he made 200 mistakes when he rounded up about 700 people recently. 
About 30% of the people he arrested or detained were here legally.  What do you want to bet they were mostly Hispanic?  I call him “Little Joe”, by the way, because a bully with a badge is small and little in my book.  Little Joe is ready with 900 troops all specially trained in immigration enforcement tactics.  No one alleges now criminal “illegals” will suffer death camps. 

Deportation, breaking up of families, employers who lose their shirts when employees disappear, raped women and sexually molested children who don’t want the entire family deported if they report the crime, all of these are likely results of hate based legislation.

Let’s hope sanity prevails upon Republican Governor Brewer who is facing a tough re-election campaign.  Considering the vote was straight down party lines, Republicans in favor, Democrats against, hope is waning.
