The Government Accountability Office has issued a report about the Transportation Security Administration’s policy on foreign nationals attending flight schools in the U.S. The report discloses a loophole that, considering the 9/11 attacks on America, suggests the administration of President Barack Obama has placed politics above security.
Entries in Arizona immigration law (8)
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) owes the state of Arizona and the nation an apology for America’s border insecurity.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay is calling attention to the chaos in Mexico. Pillay wants a “thorough and transparent investigation of the alleged ill-treatment and abuse” of a group of migrants detained by police and Mexican migration officials in December.
(Phoenix, AZ)—Arizona is now months away from enforcing its new immigration law SB 1070 – that is, if the federal government permits its enforcement at all.
Governor Jan Brewer requested that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals expedite a review of U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton's decision to temporarily block five sections of SB 1070 which took effect on Thursday. Gov. Brewer is asking the court to consider “whether the district court relied on an erroneous legal premise or abused its discretion.”
Federal judge Susan Bolton, as anticipated, issued a preliminary injunction on Wednesday, prohibiting parts of Arizona Senate Bill 1070 from going into effect. The parts she blocked involved i.d. issues and immigration status issues.
But an unbiased reading of Article I, Sect. 10 to the US Constitution, in my opinion, offers wiggle room.

If the Obama administration does file the lawsuit officials have announced in response to Arizona's immigration law, it may actually work on behalf of US citizens.
Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Ariz.) is taking a ‘bring it on’ approach about rumors swirling around a federal government lawsuit against her state. Ironically the federal lawsuit challenging Arizona’s state immigration law could prove to be a disclosure nightmare for the feds. For example, a recent conversation Sen. John Kyl (R-Ariz.) disclosed is an example of President Barack Obama placing politics over the US Constitution.

On Thursday Democrats gave Mexico president Felipe Calderon the warmest welcome a head of state could hope for. Frequent standing ovations, largely by Democrat members of Congress, included Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano. While Calderon’s address to the US Congress was a head-spinner, the aftermath is the same.
Listening to the president’s speech, I realized he is on the same page with our own president Barack Obama—loose borders, amnesty, climate change legislation and nationalized healthcare are not only dear to Calderon, they’re straight out of the Democrat playbook.
That Calderon is in favor of all of those measures US Democrats appear to endorse might give a thinking American voter pause.
