Yup, you're one fine patriotic, Constitution supporting Republican.
Ever ask yourself why the U.S. didn't simply take Mexico in 1870?
I mean, the U.S. was 25 years ahead of the rest of the world militarily at the end of the civil war and there really wasn't anything anybody could have done about it.
A bill that aims to ban ethnic studies in Arizona schools was signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Jan Brewer
Is that a defence for what the United States has done to so many Central and South American countries, the test being, you can rape and pillage a country, torture, rape and murder its citizens, as long as you have the military might.
I assume you're including in that our building the Panama Canal with American treasure, ...
then handing it over to the locals so they can hire Chinese companies to operate it?

The bill can be found here and says nothing about just banning taxpayer subsidies. It prohibits the class. ./.
You might want to be careful about calling people 'liars" when google works so well.

LAUREL — Despite domestic and international uncertainty, an unsure economy and a disapproving electorate, the White House has found time to issue a legal declaration of war against the State of Arizona, aligning itself with a foreign country against a proud and determined American state.
In May, ignoring the draconian manner in which his own country cracks down on immigration along its southern border, Mexican President Felipe Calderon lectured the American people against “such laws as the Arizona law that is forcing our people to face discrimination.” It wasn’t his first statement on the controversial issue; he had previously scolded Arizona for opening the door “to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement.”
Shortly after his comments at the White House Rose Garden, el Presidente de México was then marched by administration officials to the marbled halls of Congress where he also intoned on the subject, further criticizing the new law designed to alleviate Arizona’s illegal immigration crises.
During his speech to lawmakers, he was met with warm reception from Democrats in the chamber. In fact, Attorney General Eric Holder was among the liberal policymakers and administration officials who rose to their feet to cheer Calderon’s ill-advised remarks deriding Arizona.
But despite Holder’s show of enthusiasm, he later admitted - in embarrassing fashion - that he had not actually reviewed Arizona’s new law.
Nevertheless, with his profound support of the corrupt government in Mexico more evident than ever before, President Obama demanded the Justice Department take legal action against Arizona, an embattled state illegally occupied by an estimated 425,000 citizens of foreign nations.
On July 6, 2010, Attorney General Holder filed the administration’s lawsuit seeking to block the new legislation.
Though the new law only attempts to help, not hinder, the federal government’s lackadaisical enforcement efforts, Holder has maintained that the Justice Department decided to file the suit because the law is “inconsistent” with federal policy and the Constitution, even though the Constitution doesn’t prohibit states from passing legislation regarding illegal immigration.
The lawsuit also adopts Calderon’s empty words, as originally expressed to an eager White House. It seeks to invalidate the new law by arguing that it will lead to racial discrimination and police harassment, ignoring the numerous and very specific safeguards found in the legislation.
However, not only has there been no evidence of an intent to commit racial or ethnic profiling on the part of Arizona authorities, the new law - contrary to Holder’s arguments - doesn’t preempt federal law in any way. Unlike a number of “progressive” municipalities across the country that consider themselves so-called “sanctuary” cities by stubbornly refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities, Arizona hasn’t usurped or ignored existing regulations.
Conflicting with the leftist rhetoric echoed by Calderon and Holder, Arizona’s law isn’t a hate-inspired piece of legislation.
To the contrary, it simply requires that state law enforcement “make a reasonable attempt” to determine the immigration status of anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant, provided an officer is already in “lawful contact” with that individual.
In fact, an officer may only request immigration documentation if he has a “reasonable suspicion” that the person is in the State of Arizona illegally. It doesn’t allow law enforcement to randomly stop suspected illegal immigrants to demand documents, though federal law has required immigrants to carry documentation of their status for the past seventy years.
It also specifically prohibits racial profiling, clearly mandating that an officer “may not consider race, color or national origin” in making stops or determining an individual’s immigration status.
Far from encouraging discriminatory conduct on the part of state police officers, it simply makes illegal immigration a misdemeanor in Arizona, mirroring existing federal law.
And yet, irrespective of the state’s colorblind attempt to solve a distressing issue, the White House has taken the side of a foreign nation in an attempt to render Arizona defenseless against an illegal invasion.
Declaring hostilities against Arizona while the nation’s economy teeters dangerously near a double-dip recession is not the type of leadership we deserve.
The American people want action on the economy, not a legal war waged against a sister state in our Union.
Representing a sorrowful squandering of taxpayer resources, Holder’s lawsuit is a disservice to a constitutional republic that was founded on respect for the law. Our government’s money and time would be better spent combating violent Mexican drug cartels and securing the dangerous southern border rather than obstructing efforts by the people of Arizona to protect their struggling state.
After years of frustration over federal inaction, the people of Arizona had no choice but to take matters into their own hands.
President Obama should respect their decision, instead of playing crass political games designed to bolster his upcoming campaign for reelection.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon lectured the American people against “such laws as the Arizona law that is forcing our people to face discrimination.”
If you were anything other than the bullshit artist you clearly are, then the US military would have torture and rape units and, in fact, torture and rape would be part of basic training for American soldiers.
