Congress has clear constitutional authority in setting immigration policy.

First, Grijalva needs to learn how to read. Then, once he has that down, he should read 1070. If his comprehension skills are also developed by the time he gets around to reading 1070, he will understand that 1070 does not set any immigration policies…its mandate is to merely enforce the policies that the federal government sets. But, since Grijalva didn’t read the law he wouldn’t know that…or perhaps he does know that, but doesn’t want to anger his border-jumper voters.

Grijalva is an idiot, and in many ways a hypocrite. I don’t take him seriously, and neither does any other logical, independent thinking person.

When it comes to immigration policy, it’s this simple…either enforce the laws on the books, or change them. Having laws that are not enforced is senseless and hypocritical. Having laws that are selectively enforced is a blatant Sixth Amendment violation.

If the feds don’t want Arizona enforcing their immigration policy (whatever that may be), then they should change the policy to something they can live with actually being enforced.

You know what Grijalva, if you’re not too busy boycotting the Sentinel and read these comments, perhaps you can point to what exactly the federal law is that 1070 is supposedly conflicting with.

You can’t do it, can you?
