Arizona is rising, Tennessee is surmising when it comes to illegal immigration. As governor Carl Twofeathers Whitaker pledges and promises to make sure the surmising ends and action taken to keep those in our nation illegally out of the state with common sense laws that will deal with both those who are already here and addressing the issue of employers who hire these individuals.
The recent passage of the Arizona illegal immigration law has already produced screams of racial profiling and other nonsense when in fact the Arizona law is more restrictive on the police than those here illegally. If would help if our leaders would actually READ the law!The liberal left include many in the press who have recently written such moronic comments such as “Harkens back to apartheid,” at least according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Cynthia Tucker. Tucker, in our humble opinion is the AJC’s worst excuse for a correspondent since the days of opinion journalism began. It’s ok to have your opinion but when your opinions are laced with ignorance, reverse racism and bias- it’s time to keep your opinions to yourself. Not that many people in the nation (less than 1% if she’s have a great hair day) take this type of talk serious to begin with anyway; it is striking however to see the commentary on a law that is merely doing the job the federal government has failed to do! And in some ways, Tennessee has failed to act as well.
To Ms. Tucker’s defense, it’s not just her espousing such stupidity. President Obama calls the law “misguided” and says it “threaten[s] to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans.” Obama has ordered the Justice Department to “closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation.” Eric Holder, our attorney general, has made similar comments. However a little problem with these moron’s view of the law that does not get the attention it should – THEY HAVE NOT READ THE LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, our campaign HAS read the law and we believe it is one of the more well crafted pieces of anti-illegal immigration legislative pieces put together in a long time. If elected governor of Tennessee, Carl Twofeathers Whitaker plans to seek to implement a similar piece of legislation to ensure our borders here in the state are safe, secure and sound. We want to make it clear – we’re NOT opposed to immigration in any form whether its to our nation or to our state. We are 100% opposed to those who come here illegally with no thought of truly becoming American citizens and go through the process of naturalization that millions before them have done through the years since our nation began. Why is that so hard to grasp by the liberal left? Why is that hard to grasp even for some on the right who are more worried about their political careers and the Hispanic vote than they are the safety and security of our nation and our state? In talking to many Hispanics we have found that 99% of them truly believe that all need to go through the normal and legal process of citizenship to be American citizens and be afforded the rights of those who have. The media would have you believe otherwise, but then let us never forget there are two sides to every story – the media’s side and the truth.
Byron York, a reporter for the Washington Examiner, asked a great question in a recent op-ed piece where he said: “Has anyone actually read the law? Contrary to the talk, it is a reasonable, limited, carefully-crafted measure designed to help law enforcement deal with a serious problem in Arizona. Its authors anticipated criticism and went to great lengths to make sure it is constitutional and will hold up in court. It is the criticism of the law that is over the top, not the law itself.” We say an AMEN to that Byron!
The Tennessee senate has once again reviewed SB0194/HB0270, which requires proof of citizenship to register to vote in Tennessee. Voter registration forms have always required registrants to profess United States Citizenship to complete the registration. The current registration forms require the applicant to check “Yes” when asked if he is a U.S. Citizen and includes the stern warning that false information is punishable by 2 years in prison and a $5,000 fine. The new law requires proof that the applicant is a U.S. Citizen in the form of a driver license, non-driving photo ID, birth certificate, United States passport, or Bureau of Indian Affairs card number, or other valid proof of citizenship. Currently, Tennessee relies on the honor system and requires no proof. If elected governor, the “no proof” test ends!
Carl has spent years actively working in opposition to illegals being in our nation as an activist. He does these things not through a callous heart or without compassion to the plight of the families invovled but does so with the idea if this issue is not addressed, those coming over our borders illegally will not just be looking for work but will be those seeking to do our nation and state harm.
Chasity Goddard wrote recently in the Knoxville Christian Politics and Examimer that “bills such as Arizona’s law does not make illegal immigration illegal; illegal immigration is already illegal!” This bill changes nothing previously defined by federal law, but “makes it easier to enforce the provisions of the federal government that federal officials seem unwilling to implement.”
Tennessee is surmising what to do right now on the illegal immigration issue. When elected governor in November, Carl Twofeathers Whitaker, will work immediately with our state legislature to make sure the surmising stops and action is taken! It’s time to stop beating around the bush on this and worrying about what special interest groups are going to be offended. The ONLY special interest group we will be concerned with when elected will be YOU, the people of Tennessee. Your safety and security are a top priorty as well as making sure jobs in our states are not lost to illegals who should not be here in the first place.
Elect Carl Twofeathers Whitaker for Governor, November 2, 2010 and he promises to make the laws of Tennessee just as strong and crafty as that of the Arizona law. Arizona is rising, Tennessee is surmising. The time for surmising is over. Let’s act together and make our state safe and secure!
