It seems some people can post just about anything they want on Facebook. From dismembered S&M Barbie dolls to greusom photos, it would appear that “anything goes”. Apparently, if you are an anti-illegal immigration governor from Arizona, you can expect to be censored by the popular social networking site.
It would appear that some people who are in “moderator” positions can't handle the truth. In the past, this has also happened to me. Once, I said Israel is not our friend on another site and I was called an anti-semite for expressing my opinion which I backed up with historical facts. More recently, my NSM rally speech from Trenton, New Jersey was kicked off my Youtube channel, despite not having any hateful content. I told the truth. Somebody didn't like it and complained.
Governor Jan Brewer's Statement via Facebook
After I posted the following statement and photo yesterday, Facebook censored the post and removed it because the photo apparently violated their "Facebook Community Standards." Before it was removed, it had received over 10,000 likes and comments.
Regardless, I'm reposting the photo and statement. I think many of you will agree with me - - Obama's backdoor amnesty plan violates American standards of following the rule of law and the US Constitution.
The Obama administration cannot get its amnesty schemes through Congress, so now it has resorted to implementing its plans via executive fiat. There’s simply no other description for today’s announcement that the federal government will not pursue the deportation of individuals who are in the country illegally but meet certain criteria.
This plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of illegal aliens. Especially disturbing is that it comes in the wake of the Obama administration sanctioning the sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels – even as border states such as Arizona come under threat from those same illicit organizations. With this announcement, the President is encouraging more illegal immigration at the exact moment we need federal focus on border security.
Just last month in speaking to the National Council of La Raza, President Obama rejected the idea of bypassing Congress and imposing immigration reform. He said, "Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. And believe me, right now dealing with Congress, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting … But that's not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written.
President Obama got it right last month and got it really wrong today.
Over the next 15 months, I’m certain we’ll hear a lot of talk from the Obama administration about its concern for border security. Those of us who truly care about the rule of law will remember the President’s actions of today. We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law.
