Mother Nature wants us to forget the bad and remember the good stuff only. That's why today the weather changed drastically. It was sunny all day with the temperature going up to almost 80 degrees.
But no matter what she does we will still remember that in the past few days we froze our kazoos.
They feel that the Federal Government is not doing enough to protect the border and it results in hundreds of illegals crossing into the US regularly. So, they took the law into their own hands and made entering into the country illegally against state law.
It is claimed across the country that this will lead to racial profiling and all kinds of discrimination while at the same time giving the police extra power.
I think it is time somebody enforcing is the law seriously. Everywhere we turn they are making a joke about the police. They are clipping their authority and nobody is taking them seriously.
TV shows practically instruct people on how to slam doors into their faces and how to question their every move. The average policeman is afraid to act because of the consequences. OK, unnecessary brutality should be punished but the police should still be respected.
The other thing they are complaining about is that this Arizona law will lead to racial profiling. Meaning Hispanics will be singled out as possible illegals.
So what? Not too many orthodox Jews cross the border from Mexico into Arizona. Neither do Irish, German speaking people, English, Russian, Japanese or Liberians.
Only Spanish speaking people from Mexico come across. They are the ones who will have to be stopped and questioned. And this is now racial profiling. This is a joke in my book.
I am an immigrant. I came to this country over fifty years ago and legally. I am not against immigration because this country with all its faults is still a better place than most others.
But I am against the saturation of the population and work force with illegal people.
Years ago I read somewhere an interview where someone said that there are certain work levels or categories, usually very low level and low paid, that can not be filled with American workers.
Americans do not want to perform what others might deem degrading work. For this there are the immigrants.
The immigrant workers include migrant agricultural workers, maids, some factory workers, day laborers, bus boys, dishwashers and a myriad of other categories. These people work from dawn 'till dusk and get very low pay.
That makes them an exceedingly valuable part of our society that nobody seem to realize. They are not taking work away from anybody since nobody wants to do the work they are performing.
I can understand that southwest border states as well as the border communities are more exposed to these people than others but these are human beings who have the right for a better life just as we all do who live in this country.
It should not be an open season on immigrants. They have to be treated with the same respect we all want for ourselves. But at the same time the illegal entries should be curtailed for their own and our benefits.
