Illegal Immigration Circus Back in Town

Refried bean swastikas?  Protests over making it illegal to be illegal?  Boycotting an entire state?  It's getting crazy out there in Arizona!

Seems like it's illegal immigration debate season again - the circus is back in town.  Time to deal with the crazies who support ILLEGAL immigration and try to cast opponents as racists and haters of all immigrants.  (Sigh)

Sometimes the only way to stay sane is to just calm down, save your rational arguments for another day, shake your head, and enjoy the sideshow:


The furor over Arizona's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants grew Monday as opponents used refried beans to smear swastikas on the state Capitol, civil rights leaders demanded a boycott of the state, and the Obama administration weighed a possible legal challenge.

(Explain to me again why people like Obama, who's job it is to enforce the federal law which says it is illegal to be illegal, want a lawsuit against against a law that says it's illegal under state law to be in the U.S. illegally, which is already illegal under federal law?  Oh, never mind, let me go back to eating popcorn and cotton candy, watching the freak show, trying to stop my head from exploding.)

What boggles the mind is how people can think that the Welfare State can ever support massive immigration that remains unaccounted for. I met a guy who works in insurance claims, and he said that it's actually easier for illegal immigrants to get health coverage than for legal immigrants.

IMHO, the ideal situation would be one in which legal immigration is easy, but massive welfare entitlements don't exist. I think people should have the right to choose to come here if they so desire, but they don't have the right to have our taxes pay for that decision.
