Find the missing word

The article in the daily began this way: Two years after engineering the nation’s toughest employer-sanctions law, state Sen. Russell Pearce has taken the lead in a new round of anti-immigration reforms that could have long-lasting effects on Arizona.

One would require school districts to collect data on any student who can’t prove legal residency. Another would require state and local officials to enforce federal immigration laws, thus making sanctuary [city] laws illegal.

The report, centered on Sen. Russell Pearce (R-Dist.18), is rife with the term “anti-immigration.” 

The missing word is “illegal.”

    This is a very important distinction to make! There is a huge difference between legal and illegal immigration and Sen. Russell Pearce understands that. Those who break the law to enter must further facilitate their lawbreaking by purchasing stolen or counterfeit documents such as driver’s licenses and social security cards. They become part of an illegal underground living in the United States…committing further crimes.

    I am growing very weary of the intentional blurring of the words referring to immigration. “Migrants” are not lawful immigrants, either. “Undocumented” is another farcical word used to describe these folks who thumb their noses at our laws. The McCain faction, which includes most of the AZ delegation, and their cronies at the AZ Republic newspaper are all in bed on this issue, and I will never understand why. Thank God for U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, who understands that real immigrants come through the front door seeking citizenship!

    I agree with your thoughts concerning Congressman Franks. I would also add that we include state Sen. Russell Pearce in our grateful prayers. He and his family have been the recipients of tremendous abuse from the open borders crowd, but he has courageously remained true to his principles and love of this nation.

    Ditto, Kimball! Sen. Pearce is a patriot and hero. He is continually maligned by those who want to open the floodgates to illegals. I applaud his efforts on my behalf and those of my children.

    This is a prime example of deceptive reporting, but what else would anyone expect from Arizona’s largest newspaper?

    Our thanks go out to Sen. Russell Pearce for all he does. That man could be elsewhere and earning considerably more than a state senator’s salary, but he is firm in his commitment to give back to the state and nation that have given him so many opportunities.

  6. Doug Johnson says:

    In the realm of the newspaper, there is no difference between honorable and dishonorable conduct. So a person who comes into our country in violation of the law and uses illegal means of gaining employment, residence and school for their children is merely a “migrant” to whom we should show compassion. There are no laws that trump goodness, don’cha know?

    Well, it occures to me that Our own Federal Senator McCain is the one wanting to grant ammnesty to the ILLEGAL ALIENS! All should look into

    Also, our secretary of Dept of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, actually said that crossing the border illegally isn’t a crime per se. She should know…she’s a lawyer.

    As to State Senator Pearce, I concur with Jana- The guy needs a bottle of “Maker’s Mark”! IMHO, He’s setting a Great example!
