Illegals playing hooky in and leaving Alabama

Alabama's new immigration law, deemed the toughest in the nation, has been in effect for a week after surviving legal challenges brought forward by the Department of Justice . In those first few days, some 2,000 Hispanic students--presumably the children of illegal immigrants if not illegal themselves--did not show up for school:
Federal courts have struck down large parts of similar legislative attempts by other states, but Judge Blackburn allowed key provisions in the Alabama law to stand, saying they passed constitutional muster because they reinforced existing federal law [now dwell on the fact that the Department of Justice is leading the charge against Alabama].

Teachers unions and Hispanic advocacy groups, as well as the Obama administration, have filed an appeal, but the law began to take effect this week. Some 2,000 Hispanic students did not show up to school Monday, according to state education officials. That figure amounts to about 7 percent of the state's Hispanic student population.

Of course the parasitical educrats hate this. School districts receive funding based on enrollment and attendance, so fewer students means less money to squander. I think it's fantastic.

Many illegals are already heading to other states. This reveals, yet again, that the tripe about not being able to deport XX million illegals without turning the nation into a police state is a canard. When the state shows a willingness to enforce the immigration laws it is entrusted to enforce, most of the lawbreakers head for the hills (or in this case, the Rio Grande).

Such an outcome is hardly unprecedented. When the Eisenhower administration put Operation Wetback into action, it is estimated that for each illegal immigrant forcibly removed, 7 or 8 voluntarily left the country of their own volition.

Cliched as it sounds, the national question is one of political will and nothing else.

Parenthetically, the grand architect of both Alabama's and Arizona's immigration enforcement laws is Kris Kobach. I've met him multiple times, and the guy is razor sharp, propelled by an unrelenting desire to protect the national sovereignty of the United States. He's up there with Steve Sailer and Charles Murray among the public figures I admire the most.

The Republican candidates need to follow his lead.

Let the illegals move to Vermont.

Just occurred to me, Eisenhower wasn't a politician.

Do you think Herman Cain would enforce immigration laws? He isn't a real politician either.

Glad to hear this. Viva Alabama. And to hell with Rick Perry.

Most of the criticisms I've heard against the Alabama law boil down to, "it might actually work!" Parenthetically, regarding enforcement, I worked on the floor of a factory in Alabama one summer during college and about 1/3 of our workforce mysteriously vanished the day the ICE came to visit.

Cain is making the right noises. He brought the issue up unsolicited at the values voters conference in DC during the week. That's encouraging.

I live in another state that recently passed an anti-illegal alien law.

For some time there had been an average of one reported break-in/burglary a month in my neighborhood. The suspects were always reported as Hispanic/Latino/Mexican. In the months since the law was passed - not a single one.

One reported break-in per week.

Kobach is above them.

Rather than just being an intellectual playing with statistics, he's actually made a real contribution to saving our civilization.

Kobach is Nordish and married to a Nordish woman, and they have children together.

Not sure about Ernie and his wife, but he praises Mexican women being good wives to White men, and he's against White nationalism, says it would hurt Whites not help them.

Murray is a Sinophile with two half-Asian children.

The problem isn't whether non-White aliens are legal or illegal, it's that they're in our living space, taking our resources and jobs and interbreeding with us.

Removing the illegal non-Whites is only part of the solution.

The Kobachs just welcomed their fourth daughter into the world a few days ago.

And yes, the illegal side of immigration is only a part of the national question. Practically though, it's the part where the Establishment is the most vulnerable.
