Obama Unfair to States About Immigration

President Barack Obama is not only refusing to send enough National Guardsmen to close our southern border to the influx of illegal aliens, but he is using his executive-branch powers to prevent the states from protecting themselves against the costs of illegal aliens crossing our southern border. Obama shows no respect for the financial burden this puts on states from the problems they cause: crime, illegal drugs, public schools and hospital care. Illegal aliens from Mexico are believed responsible for more than a third of deliberately ignited wildfires in Arizona over the last five years, according to a report from the Government Accountability Office. Illegal aliens are believed to have started 30 of 77 fires from 2006 through 2010, and that figure doesn't even include the year 2010, the worst fire year in Arizona history, when two fires destroyed 60 homes.

In December 2010, Obama's Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano flew to Mexico City to sign a "trusted traveler" agreement. This allows pre-screened Mexican airline passengers to bypass lengthy airport security checkpoints, a plan for which Mexico's Interior Ministry Secretary said 84 million Mexicans are expected to qualify.

Word has leaked out which proves that, despite congressional law to the contrary, the Obama Administration is granting amnesty to illegal aliens through backdoor procedures. The smoking gun is the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Memorandum called "Administrative Alternatives to Comprehensive Immigration Reform." It spells out devious ways that the Obama Administration will avoid deporting illegal aliens who have been ordered deported.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer invited Barack Obama to visit the border himself, but somehow he wasn't interested in accepting her invitation.
