I was shocked to read that the lawsuit filed by the United States against Arizona does not include any mention of discrimination. Yet even before they had read the proposed law, President Barack Obama in numerous speeches and Attorney General Eric Holder have said the Arizona law is discriminatory. Obama even said in a recent speech that the Arizona laws allows for “third-generation Mexican American grandparents to he harassed by police while taking their grandchildren out for ice cream.”
Why would the president and attorney general say these things when they already know the Arizona law mirrors federal law? I can only conclude that this type of rhetoric is meant to stir up the masses against each other for the political benefit of himself and his party.
I wish the president would stop being so divisive and be the president to all of the United States, including Arizona. Jim HougH
By initiating a lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law, it seems to me that the president is turning his back on Americans in favor of illegal aliens. Can this be anything but a transparent effort to pander to Hispanic Americans to garner their votes?
Doing what’s right for his political party is OK as long as he doesn’t harm Americans citizens in the process. God help Arizona, because our president isn’t.
