Foxman: Stop comparing Arizona to Nazis

Anti-Defamation League director Abraham Foxman has demanded that comparisons between Arizona's newly passed immigration law and Nazi Germany be stopped:
According to ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman: “No matter how odious, bigoted, biased and unconstitutional Arizona's new law may be, let's be clear that there is no comparison between the situation facing immigrants, legal or illegal, in Arizona and what happened in the Holocaust. Let's remember that the Nazi identity cards were part and parcel of a plan to force Jews into ghettos and for their ultimate deportation to extermination camps.”

The new immigration law in Arizona, signed last week, requires local and state police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. It also makes it a state crime to be in the US illegally. The strict new law led to outrage in the US, with many claiming that it will lead to racial profiling, and demands for a comprehensive immigration bill to be passed in Congress have been renewed.

“We are seeing these offensive and inappropriate Nazi and Holocaust comparisons come to the fore in the public debate once again,” Foxman continued. “We saw it in the health care debate, and now we are seeing it with Arizona. It is disturbing that in speaking out against the bill a number of individuals have taken to...describing the legislation as being reminiscent of Nazi policies that required Jews and others to carry identity cards, or in comparing the governor and other Arizona officials as being like Hitler.”

Only a brain-dead asslib Jew like Abe Foxman could call a law dealing with illegal immigration "odious, bigoted, biased and unconstitutional." That alone shows the ADL Director has no idea at all what he is talking about.

Arizona is simply doing the job the federal government is supposed to be doing - and isn't.

Hopefully the Arizona law will inspire similar measures here in California, as well as New Mexico and Texas. Anyone who has spent time in this part of the world understands the long due need of these type of laws. - Try going to Home Depot without being accosted by dozens of illegals asking one simple question, in a highly Mexican accent, "Labor?". - Or renting a truck at Ryder or U-haul. I could go on and on...

here is the problem with the az law...it does not address employers

it is indeed bigoted for that reason and that reason alone

the vast majority of illegals are here because of jobs

no jobs and they wouldnt be here

but there is nothing in that bill that addresses that fact
