This cartoon by AJC editorial cartoonist Mike Luckovich (a lefty) while poking fun at the new law in Arizona actually makes a bigger point and also points to the flaws of the open borders people.

The point is makes is that the "controlling legal authority" needs to be able to enforce its laws regarding all that happens on the land that it controls or it will be overrun, possibly put on reservations as the "invading" force takes over.   The fact is that the Native Americas did have the land that they inhabited taken over by an group of people who they did not have the power to control.  This power is backed by the ability to exert violence if necessary.

Though Lukovich is opposed to the law in Arizona he ironically forces the question about US national sovereignty and its will to enforce its borders and who can enter.  Why do we have a US Customs service placed upon our airports and seaports if we are not serious in controlling the flow of people?

It is my opinion that the open borders people are in direct violation of their own best interests.   The history of the labor movement proves this.  Without disrespect to the illegal immigrants - they are functioning as "scabs". As the original work force is on virtual strike because of the unfavorable salary and work conditions there is an unmet demand.   When the "scabs" come in and agree to work at this lower standard they undercut the interests of the American workers.

When Progressives seek to transfer blame upon the corporations they are not being consistent with their past. Not only did they protest against corporations that hired "scabs" they also actively prevented scab workers from walking into the workplace.

Those who stand against the law in Arizona because of the civil rights violations that MIGHT occur attempt to have it both ways as they retain their own "moral supremacy".  The must be forced to deal both with the civil rights question and the displacement of American workers.
