|I’m Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen. I want to explain SB 1070 which I voted for and was just signed by Governor Jan Brewer.
Rancher Rob Krantz was murdered by the drug cartel on his ranch a month ago. I participated in a senate hearing two weeks ago on the border violence, here is just some of the highlights from those who testified.
The people who live within 60 to 80 miles of the Arizona/Mexico Border have for years been terrorized and have pleaded for help to stop the daily invasion of humans who cross their property . One Rancher testified that 300 to 1200 people a DAY come across his ranch
Another rancher testified that daily drugs are brought across his ranch in a military operation. A point man with a machine gun goes in front, 1/2 mile behind are the guards fully armed, 1/2 mile behind them are the drugs, behind the drugs 1/2 mile are more guards. These people
One man told of two illegals who came upon his property, one shot in the back and the other in the arm by the drug runners who had forced them to carry the drugs and then shot them. Daily they listen
The Border Patrol is not on the border. They have set up 60 miles away, with check points that do nothing to stop the invasion. They are not allowed to use force in stopping anyone who is entering. They run around chasing them, if they get their hands on them, then they can take them back across the border.
Federal prisons have over 35% illegal’s and 20% of Arizona prisons are filled with illegals. In the last few years 80% of our law enforcement that have been killed or wounded have been by an illegal.
The majority of people coming now are people we need to be worried about. The ranchers told us that they have seen a change in the people coming – they are not just those who are looking for work and a better life.
The Federal Government has refused for years to do anything to help the border states. We have been over run by illegals, and once they are here we have the burden of funding all the state services that they use.
Education costs have been over a billion dollars. The health care costs billions of dollars. Our State is broke, with a $3.5 billion deficit and we have many seriousecisions to make.
One is that we do not have the money to care for any who
The border can be secured. We have the technology, we
I would give amnesty today to many, but here is the problem – we dare not do this until the border is secure. It will do no good to forgive them and let them stay, because thousands will come behind them and we will be over run to the point that there will no longer be the United States of America
I ask you – if this happens, what form of government will we live under? How long will it be before we will be just like Mexico, Canada or any of the other Central American or South American countries? We have already lost our language; everything must be printed in
The leftist media has distorted what SB 1070 will do. It is not going to set up a Nazi Germany. Are you kidding? The ACLU and the leftist courts will do everything to protect those who are here illegally, but the bill was an effort to try and stop illegals from setting up businesses, gaining employment, and receiving state services, and to give the ability to local law enforcement when there is probable cause, like a traffic stop, to determine if they are here legally.
Federal law is very clear: if you are
That is the law.
In Arizona all you need to show you are a legal citizen is a driver’s
This is what you need to vote, get a hunting license, etc.. So nothing new
The socialists who are in power in D.C. are angry because we dare
Maybe it is too late to save America. Maybe we are not

Try and sneak into Mexico. 2 years in jail if not shot on sight.
