Sharron Angle blasts Judge Bolton, Harry Reid, Obama Adm. over Arizona ruling

July 29, 2010 Conservative ExaminerAnthony G. Martin

In a major policy statement that places U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle, R-Nevada, squarely in the mainstream of American public opinion, the Senate hopeful blasted district judge Susan Bolton, Harry Reid, and the Obama Administration for its concerted smack-down of Arizona over its new illegal alien law.

Angle is hoping to unseat Leftwing extremist Harry Reid, D-Nevada, from the U.S. Senate.

Yesterday Judge Bolton essentially adopted the position of the Obama Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress in issuing a temporary injunction against large sections of the new law, in spite of the fact that the state law does nothing but mirror and enforce federal immigration law.

In a statement issued by her campaign office and received by email at Conservative Examiner, Angle stated the following about the ruling:

“It’s bad enough the Federal Government won’t secure our borders, but today’s ruling is an absolute outrage. Harry Reid and the Democrats in Washington have failed to secure America’s borders, refused to enforce federal laws, and neglected to address one of the most serious problems facing our country. This is an unacceptable failure of our federal government and the people of Nevada deserve better than a so-called leader in the Senate who won’t even acknowledge that illegal immigration is a problem here at home. Instead of waging a legal battle against Arizona, this current administration should instead secure the borders and allow the people of Arizona the right to no longer live in fear of criminals and drug traffickers. Illegal immigration burdens our economy, threatens our safety, and undermines the legitimate process by which millions of people became American citizens.”

Angle's outrage mirrors that of 70% of Americans who have shown consistent support for Arizona in its fight against the federal government to secure its border with Mexico and to stop the relentless onslaught of human trafficking, Mexican drug cartels, kidnappings, and a myriad of other major problems associated with illegal aliens.

Contrary to the reports in the mainstream media, including statements by some political analysts, the move by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and the GOP to address a major problem that the federal government refuses to recognize does NOT place them in jeopardy of alienating Hispanic voters.

Polls show that a significant portion of Hispanic citizens who came to the country LEGALLY are also firmly in favor of the Arizona law, and one Hispanic group threw its support behind Arizona against the Obama Administration's lawsuit against the state.

But despite the outcry of everyday, common-sense citizens concerning the dangerous and growing assault on our southern border, the stance of Democrats such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and a host of others in the present regime, is to essentially promote open borders while giving lip service to 'securing the border' with window-dressing, such as sending a few Guard troops to the region, while forbidding them from doing what is necessary to prevent the illegal activity.

Plus, Judge Bolton, a Bill Clinton appointee who is part of the regime's ruling class, delivered a totally indefensible rationale for her ruling. If states cannot enforce laws that are under federal jurisdiction, as the 'Judge' maintains, then no federal law can be enforced by local law enforcement, when this laughable assertion is carried to its logical conclusion.

Thus, forget about local law enforcement's involvement with federal drug laws, which are 'under the jurisdiction of federal agencies,' or environmental laws which are under the jurisdiction of the EPA, or federal building codes that require handicapped access.

The irrational pronouncement of a federal judge whose only discernible rationale for such an illogical ruling is pure political ideology is astounding.

And thus, Sharron Angle is 100% correct. The entire scenario is an outrage that show how thoroughly the Obama Administration, Harry Reid, and the entire ruling class of Leftwing appointees hold in utter contempt the views of the American people.
