Once again Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano has decided that illegal immigration is a fun thing to have in her state. This has been a running commentary on her and I just don't understand why the people of Arizona keep electing her.
She has pulled this act before and at the same time tried to fool people into thinking she cares about cracking down on illegal immigration.
Gov. Janet Napolitano has vetoed a bill partly intended to help combat illegal immigration by going after day laborers and those who hire them.
The bill would have made it a misdemeanor trespassing offense for day laborers to seek work on public streets and sidewalks and for people who offer or solicit day labor work on private property after the owner asks them to leave.
Bill supporters say many people who use day labor break the law by hiring illegal immigrants.
The bill's sponsor says it would have protected public safety by reducing traffic disruptions from laborers seeking work.
Let's see how much Janet Napolitano is concerned about illegal immigration in Arizona.
May of 2005:
vetoed bill for English as the official language
vetoed bill for denying in-state tuition and day care for illegal aliens
vetoed bill for allowing local law enforcement to enforce immigration law
vetoed bill for officially rejecting the Matricula Consular
Finally voters got their own bills on the ballot and passed them in 2006
What was her reaction?
Gov. Janet Napolitano said she won't change the way she approaches the issue of illegal immigration despite voters effectively overriding two of her vetoes on the issue.
Napolitano, however, said she does not consider any of the votes a rejection of her policies.
"They expressed their opinion," she said. "And I disagree."
Keep electing her Arizona. You get what you deserve. Unfortunately the rest of America has to deal with the problems your Governor is allowing to continue.
