The Arizona Republic editorializes about Cave Creek’s illegal laborers

The newspaper has outdone itself. Each time the editorial board takes on the issue of illegals, the arguments become as absurd as the paper’s inability to use the words “illegal aliens” to describe the people over whom the contentiousness grows.

Today we get the regurgitation of a piece from Cave Creek’s Thursday edition. No doubt it is as distasteful as day’s old cold pabulum as it was in its original serving.

The town of Cave Creek is editorially admonished to Drop the day labor issue.

This past week, Federal District Judge Roslyn Moore Silver, a Clinton appointee, sided with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) in blocking the town of Cave Creek from enforcing an ordinance aimed at preventing day laborers from congregating on the town streets to solicit work.

Seeing Red AZ covered her ruling, in which she said the free speech rights of the illegal workers were being impinged.

Under the guise of giving limited support to HB 2412, legislation sponsored by Rep. John Kavanagh (R-Dist.8) making it illegal to disrupt vehicle or pedestrian traffic, today’s editorial declares the Cave Creek Town Council would be “wasting money” to appeal the judge’s decision.

The Republic continues with “Whether day laborers constitute a ‘significant problem’ is a matter for debate. The are simply people seeking to put food on their tables through an employment situation that offers them no protection. In this nation’s past, such initiative was commended. The problem with the Cave Creek law,” the editorial continues, was that it treated people seeking work as villains. The judge was right to knock it down.”

These words clearly define the agenda of the left. Nowhere is there even an acknowledgment of the lawlessness involved in being in this country in the first place. Nor do they speak to the issue of the continued crime of using documents stolen from American citizens to further their lives in the United States.

Rep. John Kavanagh is a welcome voice in the legislative chambers and his bill is worthy of consideration. However, the people of Cave Creek, tired of the assault by those in this country illegally, have every right to appeal the overreaching decision of a liberal judge with a lifetime appointment.

    So predictable. The “AZ Repugnant.” as JD Hayworth calls it, is unable to bring itself to be rational when it comes to promoting the illegals who are swelling our jails, burdening our schools and breaking the backs of our health care facilities and hospitals. I am so sick of their constant pounding us over the head with this crap.

    The newspaper isn’t supporting Rep. Kavanagh’s bill. They just want to head the Cave Creek lawsuit off at the pass. Any ploy works for the AZ Republic. This will serve them until they think of something else.

    Judge Roslyn Silver is a liberal appointee of a liberal president. ‘Lifetime’ terms make no sense. She is promoting her liberal agenda as surely as if she were sitting in the legislature rather than on the bench.
    What is so difficult to understand about the ILLEGAL status of these “good people who only want to support their families? ” They can do that in Mexico. Things aren’t so good there? FIX THEM!!!!

    “Farce” is the perfect description!!!

  5. Marianne says:

    Illegals DO create a “significant problem!” That is not “open to debate,” regardless of what this sad excuse for a newspaper opines.

    They are illegally invading our country. What’s so difficult to understand about that?

    Ah, the Republic … all the s*it that’s new to print.

    I hope the citizens of Cave Creek are fighting mad about this, appeal and win! Then they can shove it down her liberal throat until she chokes on it. Illegals have NO rights and should be deported immediately. Americans are getting angrier by the day about this and will be taking additional action.

    Another liberal judge runs true to form. Her ruling to give aid and comfort to illegals over American citizens is supported by the Republic. The illegals get free speech rights and the citizens of Cave Creek—or elsewhere—don’t. That’s what we live with these days.
