Where is the moral outcry when The Nation and the New York Times misrepresent the new law? In throwing fact-checking out the window, they've joined the ranks of Hannity and Limbaugh.
Where is the moral outcry when the drug smugglers rip each other off at gunpoint, murder each other, and kidnap each others' children and hold them for ransom? Or when illegals rob new illegals in the desert, or hold them hostage for ransom in the suburbs of Phoenix and Tucson? Get slammed in a traffic accident? Guess what? The driver is an unlicensed and uninsured illegal, and he is definitely going to run--driving up the cost of your insurance.
Where is the moral outcry when an old man takes pity on illegals crossing his property, offers them water and a hot meal--and while cooking the meal, is mugged, bound, robbed and has his truck stolen?
Where is the moral outcry when a borderland rancher is shot to death on his own property by illegals?
Where is the moral outcry when Arizona's legal taxpayers must shell out nearly $250,000 a year housing--and providing food, shelter, and medical and dental care for--illegals convicted of felonies in our state?
Get your facts straight, people. And if you want more than a knee-jerk response to the new law, ask those who have migrated here legally, and are as fed up with the illegals who abuse our hospitality as the rest of us.
