Arizona Governor Jan Brewer just signed SB 1070 into law to help stem the tide of illegal immigration. It gives the State teeth to deal with the issue.
What's that you say? Not a State issue? Right and wrong.
The feds refuse to exercise their authority. The President condemns this bill and prosecutes his own Border Police for doing what they are charged to do.
