To those vile lefties who insist that laws targeting illegal aliens are actually targeting Mexicans or people who speak Spanish or anyone from south of the border, here’s a hearty “In Your Face!”
For months, America has been told by left-wing non-profits like the Alien Criminals Liberation Union (ACLU), La Raza and LULAC, that Alabama’s new immigration law H.B. 56, “targets Hispanics” and is “anti-Latino“. Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn wisely ignored that rhetoric when she let stand (pending trial) the law’s most critical section – having police check immigration status of individuals apprehended in a lawful stop or arrest.
Well, the very first such arrest has now occurred since the Judge’s ruling. And – surprise, he is not from Mexico, or any other Latino American nation. He is Mohamed Ali Muflahi, 24, from…Yemen!
Muflahi was arrested for obstructing a government operation during a drug raid in Etowah County. He did not have documentation, and so his immigration status was checked – per the new law. It was determined he was in the U.S. illegally, and was “charged with violation of the immigration law.”
Americans won’t put up with illegal aliens for much longer. More states will be making laws like Alabama’s and Arizona’s, the courts won’t be able to stop them, and once Obama is out of office at the end of 2012, the federal government will support such laws.
