Obama's Attorney General is attacking Arizona's immigration law -- without reading the bill! The Obama team's goal is to set the stage for amnesty while discrediting the grassroots Tea Party movement. The ramifications are enormous. See below. --Steve
Last week Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), poked a Texas-sized hole in the push to stop Arizona's reasonable immigration law (SB 1070). During a hearing with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who has threatened legal action to block SB1070's enforcement, Poe asked, "Have you read the Arizona law?"
Holder stammered, "I glanced at it."
Poe, a former prosecutor and judge then turned up the heat on Holder, questioning his snap to judgment regarding the constitutionality of the statute without having first read the law. Poe then chided Holder by pointing out that the 16-page bill was much shorter than the healthcare bill -- which Holder claims to have read.
Had Holder read the law, he would have concluded that SB1070 simply states that violating federal immigration law is now a state crime as well.
+ + Why the Left is attacking Arizona...
Without even reading the new law, Holder and the pro-amnesty Left are on the attack. And their reasons are clear...
The Obama team and pro-amnesty advocates are trying to label anyone who supports border security as a racist, xenophobe or hate monger -- and then use this platform to pass amnesty and rally their base in November.
Never mind that 70 percent of Arizona residents support the law, or the fact that as citizens we have a right to have our borders secured. If the Left can succeed in framing the border issue in hate and xenophobia, they will have created the political justification they need to pass amnesty while discrediting their political opponents in the upcoming election.
+ + 100,000 Grassroots Americans Standing With Arizona!
Grassfire Nation is launching a national petition to give Americans an opportunity to show support for Arizona's reasonable immigration law and to oppose the efforts to demonize those who stand for border security.
Over the next two weeks, we want to rally 100,000 citizens who applaud what governor Jan Brewer has done -- and oppose the attacks and threatened boycotts of Arizona. As soon as we reach our goal, we will deliver the petitions to the Governor in a strong show of national support.
Go here to express your support of Arizona's sensible stand on immigration and to oppose the outrageous attacks on those who stand for border security:
Sarah Palin said recently in giving her support for SB1070, "we are all Arizonians."
She's right. Regardless where you live in the U.S., Arizona's problem is really OUR problem, and as Americans, we must react to these attacks by supporting SB1070.
If we allow President Obama, Attorney General Holder and the Left to use the Arizona law to incorrectly frame the immigration issue in terms of "race" and "hate," we will be handing them the political key to passing amnesty and discrediting the grassroots, Tea-Party movement which threatens to undermine their power this November.

Thank you in advance for takinga stand on this issue.

P.S. If we let the Arizona attacks go unchallenged, we will give the Left the key to passing amnesty AND winning in November. After reading the law and signing our petition, please take a few additional moments to alert your friends -- urging them to follow your lead by clicking on the link below:
