  • Arizona was the forty-eighth state to join the union on February 14, 1912, one month after New Mexico and forty-seven years before Alaska.
  • Population, as of 2009, is 6,595,778.
  • Senators are Jon Kyl (R) and John McCain (R).
  • Representatives are Ann Kirkpatrick (D), Trent Franks (R), John Shadegg (R), Edward Pastor (D), Harry Mitchell (D), Jeff Flake (R), Raul Grijalva (D), and Gabrielle Giffords (D).
  • Arizona holds 10 electoral votes. Historically, the state has voted republican since 1952, barring Bill Clinton’s win in 1996.
In April 2010, Arizona’s governor, Jan Brewer, signed a rigid bill on illegal immigration into law. The bill allows local law enforcement to apprehend illegal aliens if they do not have the proper documents to prove their legal status. This sounds logical. If they are residing in Arizona illegally then they get sent back home. This sounds logical. Most other countries burden foreigners with much gravity pertaining to legal documentation and legal motives for being in their country. But not America. Obama seems to want to level the greatness of this country with scattered shortcomings of various other countries, but is it not an arrogant statement, concerning the status of ultimate power, to say to the world that we are the one nation possessing power and economical strength that is too cool to be more rigorous about the laws concerning what foreign people in our country are doing at any given time? No other country with the success and the verve we possess is nearly as loose on immigration as we are and eventually it will be the end of America as we know it. America will go on, but it will not be our America.

Pertaining to Arizona’s decision to take illegal immigration seriously Jan Brewer, a pioneer in creating some real change in this country, had this to say, “The law represents another tool for our state to use as we work to solve a crisis we did not create and the federal government has refused to fix.”

This sounds logical.

1,975.4 miles to go.
