BOOM: Arizona Just Dropped a Justice Bomb On Illegal Thugs… Get The Jails Ready
The Arizona legislature dropped a massive justice bomb on illegal thugs this Wednesday by granting preliminary approval to a measure that would require judges in the state to sentence repeat illegal offenders to the maximum penalty.
According to Fox News, state Sen. Steve Smith, who chairs the Senate committee that approved the measure, was inspired to draft it by something that happened last year, when an illegal immigrant out on bail for a separate crime killed a young convenience store employee.
Despite this sensible reason, not everybody on the committee agreed with the measure.
“We need to fight for the rights of every person good, bad or indifferent,” Sen. Lupe Contreras argued. “When we start classifying certain laws to do certain things to certain individuals, I can’t stand for it.”
However, Smith pointed out that illegal immigrants are not even citizens in the first place.
“People who are not citizens of this country are not afforded the same rights as our citizens,” he said. “You can like that or you can not like that. I don’t care. That is the law.”
