Immigration is Ceasing to be Controllable…

Many Americans know about the Texas town of El
Cenizo, which not long ago announced it would no
longer allow federal immigration laws to be enforced
within its precincts and actually outlawed any city
employee from enforcing them.

Neither the president of the
United States nor his attorney general nor even the
governor of Texas – an hombre named George W. Bush –
bothered to do or say much of anything about what was
essentially a public announcement of rebellion. Now,
not too surprisingly, other towns in the same region
are following its example.

One such town is that of Mesa,
Ariz., near Phoenix, where the mayor, Keno Hawker,
recently proposed that the local police help federal
immigration authorities enforce immigration laws. Of
course, that`s exactly the opposite of El Cenizo, but
it didn`t last long.

No sooner had the mayor uttered
his suggestion than the brown battalions swung into
action. A group called the Mesa Association of
Hispanic Citizens declared a "Keno Watch" to
keep an eye on the mayor, and "monitor the
political actions and announcements of Mayor Hawker
and the City Council and identify those which are
detrimental to the Hispanic community." The group
also leagued with what the Arizona
calls "about half a dozen other
Hispanic groups" and vowed to initiate
civil-rights proceedings against the city if its cops
actually dared to enforce the law.

It also announced that the
coalition would investigate the local police for
discrimination in hiring, approach federal agencies
about employment opportunities in the city for
Hispanics and intensify voter-registration efforts. On
top of all that, a representative of one of the chief
Hispanic racist groups, the National Council of La
Raza ("the Race"), popped up to denounce the
mayor and sputter yet more threats of what would
happen if anyone in town enforced the law.
"Surely this is not what Mayor Hawker wants for
his city or his constituents," purred La Raza`s
Lot Diaz.

Well, no, probably not. What
Hawker seems to have wanted was just to do his job,
which is executing the laws of his city and those of
the federal government when applicable- as they
certainly are in Arizona – where thousands of illegal
immigrants have poured over the border for the last
couple of years. Nor is it exactly what the American
people want, the vast majority of whom would like less
immigration as well as a bit more law enforcement,
both to keep the illegals out as well as to protect
themselves from the illegals who sneak in.

But, thanks to the racial
solidarity of Hispanics, their willingness to use
their collective racial power to force themselves into
this country despite the laws and the availability of
federal power to help them against real Americans,
what the American people want means virtually nothing.

Hawker has not backed down, but
he hasn`t exactly been pushing forward, either. He now
says he should have consulted local Hispanic leaders
to "get their input on the plan." Why? Does
the FBI meet with Italian-Americans before cracking
down on La Cosa Nostra? Only if we assume that the
"local Hispanic leaders" are somehow
representative of the illegal aliens invading the
country do the leaders have any connection with a
simple law-enforcement plan.

The mayor also announced he would
"work with Hispanic groups and said that race
will not play a part in how the Police Department
performs its duties." "I`m opposed to any
type of racial profiling but not criminal
profiling," he assured everyone.

Bully for the mayor! If he`s
really against "racial profiling" in hiring,
he`ll soon get the boot from the mayor`s office, since
"racial profiling" for hiring is more
generally known as affirmative action. Racial
profiling is OK for discriminating against whites;
it`s just taboo when used against non-white criminals.

Diaz says that other towns have
tried to pull the same stunt of enforcing the law that
Mesa tried, but they haven`t gotten away with it
either. She named San Jose and Farmersville, Calif.,
and Katy, Texas – but "in all cases, the cities
abandoned their plans when faced with civil-rights
violations and lawsuits."

The plain meaning of the Mesa
story is this:  Immigration policy – who and how
many people we allow to enter our country – is ceasing
to lie in the hands of Americans or their legal
government. Once immigration has reached a certain
level, neither our laws nor the officials who make and
enforce the laws are able to stop it, and power
naturally passes to the immigrants and those allied
with them.

In Mesa, as in El Cenizo and the
other towns Diaz mentioned, that point has already
been reached. If immigration is not halted very soon,
the entire nation will reach it before long.
