Finally, a feel good story we can all enjoy! Evidently all those vile anti-Hispanic raids he’s been conducting have yielding surprising results – FORMER illegal immigrants who become LEGAL – all thanks to Sheriff Joe!
It is a happy ending story (for a few) that will leave you smiling, and laughing at the way the vile antics of Sheriff Joe have backfired.
There is a certain classification of person who is here illegally, who has an excellent chance of getting papers – after being caught. If they have a special needs child who is an American citizen, they’re probably staying here, legally. If they have children who are born here, have never been accused, let alone convicted of a crime and own their own home, they have a 50-50 chance of staying as a legal resident. Sometimes this is temporary, at least until their case is heard by an immigration judge, but good ole’ Sheriff Joe is helping to make Hispanic dreams come true. This is a heck of a lot of fun. We all know he hangs out with a bunch of bigots who hate Hispanics! Just think how this must really “get” to all those lovely little white supremacists who are his most ardent supporters. I know I am! (na na na na na)
It looks like good things are starting to happen in Maricopa County. First Russell Pearce is facing a recall election and now Sheriff Joe gets caught enabling those nasty illegal Hispanic immigrants to become legal.
Just think, ten years from now, I wonder how many of these people will be legal American Citizens? It’s just too bad that Sheriff Joe probably (we hope) won’t be around to be voted out of office by them.
Look at the faces of Mr. and Mrs. Figueroa. You want proof that America’s best days are not behind us? Just look at them. This is the future of the United States of America. Immigration is our future, good honest men and women who are willing to take the same risks our ancestors did. Immigration is what will keep this nation young and vital.
I don’t know about you, but this sort of a happy ending makes The Pink Flamingo feel a heck of a lot better about our world.
On the other hand, the anti-immigration bigots might want to take note of one of the comments on the piece.
“…On to another point, because of the AZ GOPer hate filling the air in this state, many people are also becoming US citizens. Making them eligible to apply for visas for family members. Such was the case earlier this year when my brother became a citizen. Applied for residency for my parants, 6 months later my parents had their permanent status. Aslo in the mix, my brother applied for visas for me and my other siblings. Although ours will be a long process, we’re in the system. Thanks to the haters!..”
I am loath to say this, but I TOLD YOU SO!
