“A country, after all, is not something you build as the pharaohs built the pyramids, and then leave standing there to defy eternity. A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.”
– Pierre Trudeau
[Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliott Trudeau] (1919-2000) Prime Minister of Canada (1968-1979, 1980-1984)

This is a quote I can both agree with and worry about. Those of us who are working or who want to work are not “sharing values” with those content to be on the dole, on the government tit, and it seems that segment is growing daily as the “fuzzies” the “libs” continue to buy votes with handouts of OUR money. Some things seem to be progressing, such as the new Florida law requiring those on welfare to take a drug test. GO FLORIDA! And the Supreme Court upholding Arizona’s right to check a person’s citizenship when they’re stopped by police.
Then our administration tries something so blatantly against our Constitution as removing 287G from Arizona’s rights. This from the ICE webpage:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the largest investigative agency in the Department of Homeland Security, enforces federal immigration laws as part of its homeland security mission. ICE works closely with federal, state and local law enforcement partners in this mission.
The 287(g) program, one of ICE’s top partnership initiatives, allows a state and local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The state or local entity receives delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions.
