Joe Arpaio and Barack Obama Protested by Puente Moms and Their Children

The children of Puente lead a demonstration downtown against Arpaio

Many would like to believe that even the most guileful and nefarious of individuals are capable of compassion, particularly toward the weakest among us.

Sadly, human behavior argues otherwise. To rationalize away the sufferings of others is a fairly easy mental trick, and when the payoff for doing so is political power, pangs of conscience are like pinpricks, at best.

So I'd argue that if Sheriff Joe Arpaio or President Barack Obama had been around Phoenix's Cesar Chavez Plaza Friday afternoon for a rally of moms and kids sponsored by the local human rights group Puente, the sight would not have moved them to reconsider their respective policies toward the undocumented.

Obama continues to be the greatest enemy of the undocumented

Democrats and lefties out there might argue that Obama is capable of more compassion than our almost-octogenarian sheriff. I'd disagree. If you judge simply by the amount of human suffering each man has caused, Obama's ill deeds far outweigh Sheriff Joe's. 

After all, Arpaio cannot claim to have deported more than 1 million souls, like Obama. In fact, Arpaio hasn't deported anyone. He's turned many over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but ICE decides whether to cut those mothers, daughters, fathers, sons and grandparents loose, keep them in prison-like detention facilities, or give them a one-way ride to their countries of origin.

No doubt, Arpaio's policy decisions regarding the undocumented have been hurtful. His raids and sweeps targeting Hispanics have spread fear and inflamed nativist sentiment in this state.

Obama broke his promise to children like this one...

And Sheriff Joe has no special sympathy for mothers or their offspring. One need only look to examples of shackled pregnant women in MCSO custody, or mothers with their arms or jaws broken by MCSO goons for supporting evidence of that statement.

We should support our president. Have faith mi Gente! We can't depend on one man to fix these injustices. We need to fight for what right. The politicians in Arizona have cut their own throats, as you see business have left our state. Lets not jump on the "Rush Limbaugh Disrespect our president" Ship! remember Rome wasn't built over night!

Stephen,
700 million poor foreigners want to move here:http://www.gallup.com/poll/124...
You portion of them is 100 people.  Until you are entirely taking care of the housing, food, education and transportation needs of 100 poor foreigners, you are a giant hypocrite.

The president has other things to do than worry about this one issue.

Sure it IS an issue, and the president did agree to support the effort. He even said in January he supported an immigration overhaul.

However, it is up to Congress (namely Arizona's most senile senator, John McCain) to help get something like that through.

What Republicans need to do is stop pussyfooting around. An immigration overhaul would actually help lower the national debt by bringing in more people to work. More people working means less unemployment and more taxes being paid. More taxes being paid means more money for Social Security, Medicare, etc.

You fail to understand the power of the filibuster. 

The rule of law is that a simple majority wins.  The (R) staged a coup, threw out the rule of law and abused the filibuster to make passing anything require 60 or more votes in the Senate.

You do remember all that "Party of No" talk - that's where it came from.  Why didn't you have the intellectual curiosity to learn about it then and why should America suffer now because you're lazy?

The only reason we even have these "Don't separate the families" rallies, is due to the leftwing, and improper, interpretation of the U.S. Constitution on "birthright" citizenship.   We never had citizenship by being born on U.S. soil.  It was 2 U.S. citizen parents giving birth.

Just because someone plops a kid on U.S. soil, doesn't make a U.S. citizen.  This is just part of Leftwing Chaos Theory.  Making chaos by confusing the law that already has documented cases.

You are not separating families because their kids are not U.S. Citizens.  Illegal aliens have illegal alien babies.  If the parents don't have a right to be here, then neither does the new child coming out of them.  That is like saying that a pregnant lady comes in my house and has her baby, and now I am responsible for paying for and raising that child. BS.  The House is my property and I dictate who belongs in it just like U.S. citizens dictate who comes into our country and who becomes a legal U.S. citizen.

All the detractors are obviously from that recently canned TUSD Raza studies class.

W Dawes, the reason we have the birthright citizenship is due to the post-Civil War era and was designed to the protect the children of freed slaves. You're correct in that it shouldn't and never was meant to apply to illegal aliens.

Also, just some friendly advice, when you say things like "Leftwing Chaos Theory" and "leftwing" this and "leftwing" that, you sound like a complete fucking idiot - so much so that it completely invalidates any other point you're trying to make. Thanks.

They did have illegals then, as the United States had the authority to ban anyone, or any group, from its borders.

The idea of an illegal was not foreign to them, yet they elected not to use it as a measure for determining how to apply birthright citizenship - a term that predates America by centuries.

Take your revisionist history and shove it.

Truconserv
Truconserv

Actually, it did.  That's why they wrote the law as they did: subject to the jurisdiction.

All that means is that you can be prosecuted at law.

If illegals aren't subject to US jurisdiction, then - per YOUR logic - they must have immunity from prosecution for any crime they commit.

They don't have immunity.  They are subject to the jurisdiction of the US. Simple English saves the day.

The founders gave us a simple test - and it's worked well for us ever since.

Illegals should be tossed out.  Citizens should be allowed to stay. Period.

Didn't have any illegals back then. Get a history book. if the children of diplomates do not get birth right citizenship i find it hard to believe that it would cover the children of persons who are NOT supposed to be here.

What these Mexicans are essentially arguing is that we shouldn't have any border enforcement of any kind. And, once they're here, they should have unlimited access to all available social and welfare services without ever having to worry about the possibility of being sent home ever.

Pure insanity.

What is so odd about this is how everyone, especially Mexicans themselves, ignores the elephant in the room. Let's talk about Mexico and Mexicans. Ah yes, the thing everyone knows is the root of the problem and the one thing no one has the courage to discuss.

Mexico, in spite of vast natural resources, great weather, great location next to the largest consumer base in the world... in spite of trillions in foreign aid, continues to be a third world cesspool of poverty and misery decade after decade after decade.

It's much easier to point the finger at others, but at some point Mexicans have to stop this victimization blame game they love to play and start looking inward. The reason Mexico continues to be such a cesspool is because Mexicans themselves are incapable of creating a functional, thriving society of their own.

What fascinates me is that instead of having the dignity and self-respect to use your energy and resources into solving your home country's problems, Mexicans instead choose to flee their country and then turn their fight against our existing laws for the sole purpose of receiving welfare and handouts from others. Quite frankly, it's humiliating.

When you combine this with the extreme hypocrisy for their utter silence regarding how Mexicans brutally enforce their border with Guatemala and Belize and how Mexicans routinely abuse their "undocumented" from Central America and the circle is complete.

Mexicans need to have a long, long look in the mirror. That reflection staring back at you is the cause of your problems and the solution.

Obama must go! He has done nothing for the Latino community. I will take my chances with the right. I only hope they win the Senate as well! We are Christians, don't believe in abortions, believe in smaller government, hard working people and believe in FREEDOM!

Your comments are not reflective of reality.

Obama tried to pass the Dream Act, a decidedly non-Amnesty path for the best and brightest of the illegal community to become citizens. It was blocked in the Senate by 49 Republicans who thwarted democracy by invoking a filibuster.

If those bastards are the one you want to take your chances with, you truly are either a liar or a fool.

The Dream Act is amnesty for 5 million illegals, all it takes is a fake GED and fraudulent affidavit and the illegals get a legal work permit.  That is amnesty. 

Truconserv
Truconserv

Yea, you're right except for all the stuff you got wrong.

You don't know what the word amnesty means and you didn't even bother to read the Dream Act. (You know you didn't, so don't pretend otherwise.)

Amnesty means a government political pardon in exchange for nothing.

The Dream Act was a quid-pro-quo deal.  The best and the brightest, the ones who can make America a better nation, can work to earn citizenship.

People such as yourself, who have never "earned" citizenship are afraid that smarter, harder-working immigrants will out-compete you.

I have to admit, given your inability to comprehend basic English, that's not an unrational fear.

Family unity is a human right.  That is why there should be NO allowance for children born in the USA to become automatic American citizens unless their parents are American citizens!  They are not!  This rule the govt has come up with does not include people from England, China or other countries.  ONLY to those south of the border.  The entire family needs to be deported as a unit.

No family has to be separated, nor should they.  The whole family can be deported and this includes the anchor babies.  The illegal aliens caused this problem, so don't blame it on Americans.

I'm not a republican, but I will be voting for one this election, and pray to God he will get our immigration laws enforced. I'm sick of obama pandering to these people who have NO RIGHT to be in this country. The illegal aliens who don't have our jobs, are using this country as a welfare country with their anchor babies, (illegal alien children). Why should illegal aliens be entitled to a DREAM Act? They are in this country ILLEGALLY no matter how they got here. It's time to get these illegal aliens back to their own country where they belong. They DO NOT belong here!   Is that so hard to understand?
