"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." --Thomas Jefferson
Before we urge Arizona to declare war on Mexico, perhaps there are some Constitutional issues to consider that might REDUCE THE VIOLENCE instead of increase it.http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle2010/tle580-20100725-05.html

"Immigration control is UN-Constitutional!" http://tinyurl.com/yeyd7kq
And so is Drug Control, for all the same reasons! That means that ALL the Federal “laws” regulating immigration and drugs are themselves ILLEGAL! The PROPER course of action for Arizona and other states is to invoke the 10th Amendment and NULLIFY the Federal drug and travel prohibitions within their state’s boundaries.
The Constitution is SUPPOSED to be the supreme law of the land. If the Federal government is allowed to break "the law", why should WE be required to obey it? Where does that leave statements about "The Law APPLIES TO EVERYONE" or “Enforce the existing laws”? What happens when the government makes and “enforces” UN-constitutional, i.e. ILLEGAL laws? We know about the violence during Alcohol Prohibitions
--and those laws actually WERE constitutional laws! If prohibition did NOT work when it was Constitutional and therefore "legal", by what twisted logic can it be expected to work when it is UN-constitutional and IL-legal?
We had prohibition and we had violence. We repealed prohibition and the violence stopped—IMMEDIATELY! Gee, is it really that simple? We have prohibition again and we have violence again. Could REPEAL really work again?
BEFORE drugs were artificially made illegal there were no black markets in drugs, there were no drug lords and there were no gun fights over drug territories. And BEFORE the established border crossings were closed with armed guards— BEFORE un-constitutional “laws” were created making travelers “illegal” —there were no “illegal” immigrants (or “illegal” migrant workers) and no trespassers over private lands and thru deserts because it was easier and safer to cross at the long established, public border crossings. “Illegals” only have that status because the Federal government created “laws” that are un-constitutional and therefore are “illegal” themselves. The WRONG THINGS are being called “illegals”!
Today’s problems are no different from the problems CREATED by the government’s Prohibition of Alcohol. (See http://tinyurl.com/ProhibitionFailed-Again
It is US and Mexican drug prohibition that created the Mexican Drug Lords—just like US alcohol prohibition created Al Capone and his ilk--and it is continued US and Mexican drug prohibition that makes them rich.
Without alcohol prohibition, there would NOT have been the violence and gang warfare of the Roaring '20s--and NO gang lords like Al Capone, who was perceptive enough to declare:
"I am guilty of supplying the American people with a product they wanted!"
The SOLUTION that nobody wants to talk about is the SAME solution that our grandparents used. The ONLY solution that WILL work is the same one that DID work: REPEAL! REPEAL THE PROHIBITIONS!!
The violence stopped IMMEDIATELY for our grandparents and it will do so for us.Creative CommonsAttribution--Share Alike

Shelby County, 118 US 425 (1886)
Note: Arizona has NOT invoked the 10th Amendment. AZ has SPECIFICALLY insisted on enforcing the Federal laws--all of which are UN-constitutional and therefore ILLEGAL.
Furthermore, the VIOLENCE, which is MY main concern, is CAUSED BY the FEDERAL prohibitions on drugs and travel. As I point out in my articles, http://tinyurl.com/WrongILLEGALS
and http://tinyurl.com/ProhibitionFailed-Again The violence is recent and the solution is old--our grandparents figured out the solution, and we ignore it!
