A Local Illegal Immigration Reminder

Unless the courts interfere in the new illegal immigration law in Arizona, their legal, tax-paying citizens will begin to take back their state. While many oppose this law, I would like to use a local real-world reminder as to what is at stake.

On Aug. 4, 2007, illegal immigrant and MS-13 gang member, Rodolfo Godinez, cut short the lives of three of Newark’s promising youth and sexually assaulted a fourth. Iofemi Hightower, 20, Dashon Harvey, 20, Terrance Aeriel, 18, and of Natasha Aerie, now 22 were simply hanging out in a school yard when this animal cut them down just as they began their adult lives. Godinez was sentenced to 245 years in prison earlier this year. These young individuals represented what Newark needs as Mayor Corey Booker and his team attempts to turn this city around. I weep for them and their families.

These young adults should have never been killed because Godinez should have never been in this country. Period. He is in this country illegally and certainly wasn’t trying to “just earn a living” as many who oppose Arizona’s law claim. He was here to cause mayhem and strike fear in those who are trying to live a decent life.

So I say NO MORE. I saw it is time for we legal, tax-paying, law-abiding American citizens take back our country. Are some illegals here trying to support their families? I am sure they are. However, there are many like Godinez that are just here to commit crimes and intimidate those in their communities. I call on the federal government to not put another family through the horror Godinez put his victims and their families through. If the feds don’t like the idea of individual states protecting themselves, then they should live up to one of the actual responsibilities they have and protect their citizens.

  1. The unfortunate fact is, even for those just trying to support families, the US can only accomodate so many people. That and many send their money home adding nothing to the local economy.
