Obama Blasts Arizona Immigration Law As 'Ill Conceived'

July 01, 2010  | 

President Obama blamed Republicans for stalling immigration reform, and said states such as Arizona who pass their own laws to address the issue are taking an "ill-conceived" step.

Obama made the remarks today at a speech at American University in D.C.

During the speech, Obama said immigration reform is a federal responsibility and should be passed with bi-partisan support, according to the CBS report.

In April, an Arizona law went into effect that requires police officers to check the immigration status of subjects they stop. The law has drawn fire from several high-profile police chiefs, and support from patrol officers and deputies.

I STILL SAY "HURRAY" FOR TAKING A LONG OVER DUE STEP TO HELP STEM THE TIDE OF ILLEGAL IMMAGRANTS. IT HAS TO STOP SOMEWHERE, SOMETIME. GREAT WORK ARIZONA, HOLD YOUR GROUND. PLEASE NOTE THE LAST LINE IS THAT THIS LAW IS "SUPPORTED" BY THE RANK AND FILE OF OFFICERS ON THE STREET. AND ALL THE WHILE THE TOP OF THE PIRIMID OFFICERS, (CHIEFS, SHERIFFS) DO WHAT THEY ARE TOLD BY THEIR PARTIES.

AS FAR AS "ILLCONCEIVED" IDEAS, OBAMA IS "ILLCONCIEVED" AND UNTIL HE PROVES BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT HE IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN, HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.
