Check out this article over at Real Clear Politics titled What the Public Really Thinks About Immigration
In the article, the President states that he favors "common-sense comprehensive immigration reform." While I have to agree that passing a law making some illegal a crime is not only redundant but lacks common sense, I don't really see much common sense about anything Obama does.
In my opinion, however, Arizona passing this new immigration law is less about trying to make sense and more about making a statement. A statement that the government has failed to do one of the most important things it is required to do: protect our borders.
The federal government lacks not only the common sense to come up with any meaningful attempts at immigration reform, but also the balls to do anything about it in the first place.
Just my opinion.
