Funny Quote

This from a Reuter's article about how LA is apparently going to boycott doing future business with Arizona in protest to their attempts to curb their rampant illegal immigration problem:

"I cannot go to Arizona today without a passport," Councilman Ed Reyes said before the vote. "If I come across an officer who's had a bad day and feels the picture on my ID is not me, I could be summarily deported -- no questions asked. That is not American."

Arizona's new law, which comes into effect at end-July, does not allow police to demand identification from individuals without cause or to summarily deport them. But it does require officers, during a lawful contact, to check the immigration status of anyone who they reasonably suspect is in the country illegally.

One has to wonder if resident douche-bag Ed Reyes is just a moron, woefully uninformed and thus making a fool out of himself, or just spewing garbage based on the belief that his constituents and supporters are too stupid to know the difference. I personally thought it was telling that even Reuters, which is normally slightly more left-wing than the socialist party, calling out his BS in a matter-of-fact, marvel at our resident town idiot fashion. At least he's being entertaining.

  1. You're assuming one side wants to enforce immigration laws. It seems we have a bizarre situation, which has existed all my life, in which all sides prefer to look the other way than to make hard decisions about whom to allow in the country.
