Umm... Really!?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Democrat County Supervisor Peggy West at a board hearing in Milwaukee, WI about whether to boycott Phoenix, AZ because of the state’s new immigration law?

Answer: Apparently she believes that Arizona is “a ways removed from the border.”

😆 Wow! Can this lady actually be serious!? Ladies and gentlemen… I give you the intellectual firepower of the modern day Democrat Party!

A round of applause goes here…

Yeah, yeah, yeah… Chill out liberals, because I was only kidding. A majority of you, I’m sure (and I hope), advanced past 1st grade geography.

On a serious note though, Allahpundit – from Hot Air – has some serious questions he would probably like to ask this young lady:

Does this person really think that having a token force of National Guardsmen at the border somehow solves Arizona’s problem, particularly when they’re not authorized to stop illegals? And what’s the business near the end about Jan Brewer having a direct pipeline to Obama? When she first asked to meet with him, he turned her down; then, when he did meet with her, he made a pledge of new resources that he evidently has no intention of keeping. Exit question: Did West read anything about this issue before pushing for a boycott?

To answer Allahpundit’s question: No.

My exit question: Can she even read?… Or at least read a dang map?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the city of Los Angeles’ power supply if they decide to boycott Arizona?

Answer: Some of it might go missing.

NBC Los Angeles reports:

An Arizona utility commissioner said he’s willing to pull the plug on Los Angeles if the city goes through with a boycott of his state.

In a letter to the city of LA, a member of Arizona’s power commission said he would ask Arizona utility companies to cut off the power supply to Los Angeles. LA gets about 25 percent of its power from Arizona.

[…]

The commissioner’s power grid play is in response to the city’s approval of a resolution directing city staff to consider which contracts with Arizona can be terminated.

Los Angeles decided to push and Arizona pushed back harder. If I were Arizona, I would tell Los Angeles to bring it on!

HealthCareIllegals

Wonder what you would find if you frisked a group of House Democrats over the issues of immigration and health care?

Answer: Health-care for illegal immigrants!

Hey! I got a great idea: Those who have fooled the system and broke our nation’s laws should definitely be rewarded with health care. Well… that’s what a group of liberals believe:

Fearful that they’re losing ground on immigration and health care, a group of House Democrats is pushing back and arguing that any health care bill should extend to all legal immigrants and allow illegal immigrants some access.

The Democrats, trying to stiffen their party’s spines on the contentious issue, say it’s unfair to bar illegal immigrants from paying their own way in a government-sponsored exchange. Legal immigrants, they say, regardless of how long they’ve been in the United States, should be able to get government-subsidized health care if they meet the other eligibility requirements.

Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said proposals that include government coverage for illegal immigrants leave him incredulous.

“If anybody can, with a straight face, advocate that we should provide health insurance for people who broke into our country, broke our law and for the most part are criminals, I don’t know where they ever would draw the line,” he said.

Mr. King, who opposes Democrats’ health care plans in general, said illegal immigrant access in legislation “would be a poison pill that would cause health care to go down” to defeat.

Twenty-nine Democrats signed on to the letter on legal immigrants, while 21 signed the letter on covering illegal immigrants. Although the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus signed the legal-immigrant letter in their capacity as CBC officials, they signed the other letter as individual members of Congress.

Immigration issues are a touchy subject. A good percentage of the people that make their way into the United States illegally are simply just trying to make an honest living, but with good comes bad:

  • Over 25% of today’s federal prison population are illegal aliens.
  • In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
  • 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
  • 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
  • Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.
  • The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.

Like I said above… We shouldn’t reward those who constantly break the law.
