[JURIST] Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano signed the Legal Arizona Workers Act Monday, legislation that requires employers to verify that employees are in the United States legally. In what Napolitano called “the most aggressive action in the country against employers who knowingly or intentionally hire undocumented workers,” employers who violate the law could have their business license suspended or, after a second offense, permanently revoked. In her signing statement, Napolitano, however, noted several problems with the new Arizona law, including the omission of an anti-discrimination clause and the lack of a “license revocation exception for businesses servicing critical infrastructure,” among others. Read the complete story here.
Commentary: This was a victory for everyone who has been trying to eek out an honest living (particularly those of us in the agriculture and construction sectors) while having to compete against those who are cheating the system by hiring illegal alien workers and paying them slave wages. By denying job opportunity to the influx of illegal aliens, one would hope this legislation will help to curb the invasion. It should at least make Arizona a less desirable final destination for these illegal aliens.
There are still the same old liberal socialists in state government that will continue to fight with every ounce of their being to destroy Arizona and the sovereignty of America. Against these traitors to America we must remain vigilant in our opposition to their treachery.
Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix, felt bullied into approving a legislative fix and likened it to “legislating at gunpoint” and noted that HB 2779 “has the potential to put many hardworking Arizonans out of business.”
Yea, Arizonans working hard at cheating the system, breaking the law, and providing employment to your preferred future voter base. Isn’t it funny when Ms. Sinema doesn’t get a vote to go her way, it’s always because her side was “under duress” or “held at gunpoint”? We know that Kyrsten NEVER tries to “bully” her left wing socialist radical agenda on Arizona herself. I wonder if she has a La Raza membership card in her purse, since her motto would appear to be,“POR LA RAZA TODO. FUERA DE LA RAZA NADA.” Her’s is the kind of asshattery we have been and will continue to be up against folks. Trust me when I tell you, there are some weaknesses in this legislation. If they can in anyway be exploited and used to pick it apart, you can be sure that she and her ilk will try.
Just a side note: Several times a week I check the Site Meter to get an idea of where in the world all of you are. This site has been visited from 27 different countries and just about every state in the union. I’m pleased that you are here and I hope you find useful information and links. I do have one question. Does ANYBODY in Fort Worth, Texas speak English!? Practically every hit I get from Fort Worth reads this blog via translate.google.com in spanish. Holy Cow! Even the Mexican Secretary of State’s office in Mexico City reads me in English. It must be as bad in Fort Worth as it is in parts of Arizona.
