There are times when one wonders if members of the Republican party ever took a course in American history. The Supreme Court ruled against several aspects of the Arizona STATE law which violated those of the Federal government. Mitt responded with his usual ignorant take on American history. “I believe that each state has the duty–and the right– to secure our borders and preserve the rule of law, particularly when the federal government has failed to meet its responsibilities.”
1. Under the Articles of Confederation each state had the duty and right to secure its borders. Sorry Mitt, but the Articles are no longer the basis of our government.
2. If each state has the right to “secure our borders” then we would have 50 laws governing our borders.
3. Under the Obama administration–four years– TWICE AS MANY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WERE SENT BACK TO MEXICO AS DURING THE EIGHT YEARS OF THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. So, Mitt, how come you never denounced the Bush administration??
