Time to embrace the internationalness!

Well now. There's been so much talk recently about how the US isn't very internationally minded. How we should be more like the other enlightened nations. Arizona's new immigration law is seen by many as an indication of this. Well, I think that those folks may be on to something. Maybe we should be more like our neighbors. Ah, but there's a caveat...

"A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand [dollars] will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally."

Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported...instead of being imprisoned.

Foreigners who "attempt against national sovereignty or security" will be deported.

A [naturalized citizen] who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison.

Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison

Wow! Can you imagine the ACLU's reaction if we were to impose laws this strict? You would hear nothing but outrage for WEEKS!

Thing is, these laws are currently on the books...In Mexico. That's right, the nation that screams at the US for it's immigration policies has, in some cases, even more strict rules.

Is there something evil about our government trying to maintain some control over how many people flood into our nation? I think not. Granted, a VAST majority of the illegal immigrants want nothing more than to scrape out a better life than they had in their home country. It's that small minority however that makes strict laws necessary. That small minority that has no intention of living on the good side of the law. If I have to choose between a bit of 'racial profiling' and a tsunami of illegals that have only harm on their minds, you know how I'll choose.

Oh, by the way...To all those that scream "racial profiling!" in cases like this, when you say that we are all "White, well to do, conservative radicals", congratulations! You just racially profiled us.
