Laws, Illegals, and Tennessee

TN bill would require those arrested to prove citizenship

State senators are debating a bill that would require people who are arrested to show they are American citizens or face being reported to immigration officials.

But a coalition of sheriffs and immigration groups are pushing back, saying the law will be costly, ineffective and likely to lead to wrongfully reporting citizens and lawful residents.

Why do these people project their own ignorance on others? Just because they are too stupid to pour piss out of a boot, doesn’t mean every one else is. If there are actually REAL sheriffs in this coalition, has any of them thought about the cost of NOT getting illegals out of the country? Do these sheriffs know that aiding and abetting criminal activity is against the law? I won’t even mention the “immigration groups”. They are nothing more than whining socialists, hell bent on the destruction of this country. Note the L.A. teacher, and this little number:

Do these people actually believe it’s ok to be invaded by criminal elements? Has any of them noticed the deaths caused by illegals, with no license, drunk out of their minds? Is that ok? How about the drugs that are being brought in over the border? Shall I mention the Muslim extremists who have been sneaking in, paying a large sum of money to coyotes, attempting to blend in with the rest of the illegals? What about the cost of health care? Hospital emergency rooms used as a free clinic, for a case of the sniffles, and God knows what other diseases that are being brought in from a population that hasn’t been vaccinated for the simplest of childhood diseases? Who do they think picks up THAT tab? Do they believe illegals pay those bills?

The Senate took up Thursday a long-dormant bill meant to combat illegal immigration by requiring jailers to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement about anyone who cannot prove they are in the country legally when they are arrested.

And the problem with this is…..???? If you go to another country, say….oh, I don’t know…MEXICO….and you can’t prove you are in the country legally, what do they do?

1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language

2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed.

3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, all government business will be conducted in our language.

4. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

5 Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.

7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 400 times the daily minimum wage.

8. If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT options will be restricted. You are not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

9. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no badmouthing our president or his policies, if you do you will be sent home.

10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.

If other countries, let’s say…..MEXICO….has such harsh penalties, is it too much to ask to have similar ones right here?  I’m all for immigration….LEGAL immigration.  If you are legal, prove it!  No, it’s not the ‘papers please’ BS the left is spouting.  It’s the common sense solution to an ever growing problem.  If I’m stopped by a cop, they ask for ID.  If I am arrested, they run a check on me.  Should an ILLEGAL invader have special privileges? You want ‘fair’? Try not being a criminal, and come in the front door, where you will be welcomed and aided in assimilating to your new home. I’ll even help teach you the language.

Besides creating a paperwork burden, the law might lead law enforcement to report citizens and legal residents who just did not happen to have a passport, birth certificate or other identification on them when they are arrested, say opponents.

“It’s coming on summertime, and people are going to be arrested in bathing suits or shorts, and they’re just not going to have ID with them,” said Sumner County Sheriff Bob Barker, chairman of the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association’s legislative committee.

I wonder what the paperwork burden is for the death of a child, killed by an ILLEGAL drunk driver? You get in your vehicle to drive to a pool, or a lake, and don’t have ID, then you are an idiot. I don’t care what you are wearing. Women carry purses. It’s a girl thing. Men have wallets. If you can carry a few bucks, you can damn sure carry your ID.

Amendments adopted by the Senate on Thursday would strip out the sheriff’s departments covering roughly half of the state’s residents, including those living in Tennessee’s four biggest counties, from the law’s impact. Senators said they were moving to strip out their counties at the request of local sheriffs.

What good does it do to exempt the four biggest counties? Typically, that’s where illegals congregate. Why not just say, “We are law enforcement officers, and we don’t want to enforce the law!” As much as I admire LEOs, I have little respect for any who can’t be bothered to protect LEGAL citizens!

I commend my state Representative, Vance Dennis, and state Senator, Delores Gresham, for stepping up!  I severely CONDEMN those senators who are throwing in the amendments to exempt their counties from enforcing both the FEDERAL and state laws!
