Arizona Immigration Law & Senators John Mccain & Russell Pearce - Poem by Luke Easter

The year 2010, it’s April & what do you think is front-page news?
The 1930’s & 40’s, Hitler’s henchmen check papers of the Jews,
From Plymouth Rock to modernization Indians are under attack,
And during that period Blacks in chains were unable to fight back.

Arizona has passed a sweeping and controversial immigration bill,
It’s authorizing police to stop suspected illegal immigrants at will,
Able to check identification and demand proof of their citizenship,
Most certainly to handcuff, arrest & detain anyone giving them lip.

Is there a reason for those of Mexican descent to be upset thru panic?
Well, just ask African slaves who were brought across the Atlantic,
Oops! It’s been a couple hundred years since they put out that lamp,
Less than seventy since the likes of Auschwitz Concentration Camps.

“Racial Profiling, ” I thought there was a national, federal kind of law,
'Hate the Law, Not Arizonans, ' but Hispanics didn’t get to vote at all,
Are they pulled from a box of Cracker Jacks or like a rabbit from a hat?
The calendar’s supposed to be going forward so why is it going back?

Hispanics, Jews, Indians, Blacks, take heart because you’re not alone,
Over 2 thousand year before 2010 Christians were despised in Rome,
Many were unjustly beaten, falsely accused, you name it & they were,
Just be thankful there’s no Coliseum & lions or crucifixions to occur.

McCain calls it Human Trafficking smuggling Mexican’s seeking work,
That is when women are forced into prostitution then treated like dirt,
Mexican’s want jobs for a better life and to funnel money back home,
Kidnapped females are sexually abused everyway, they are all alone.

Pimps take all the money and leave them with barely enough to eat,
And the “John’s” have priority some don’t even get a chance to sleep,
Well, if you call being locked up in dog cages living in human waste,
Like you Senator as a P.O.W., are you saying those days were great?

The negative comments are more amazing because you’ve had a taste,
Eventually you came home as a war hero but what will be their fate?
Remember, most take jobs that Americans feel are below their pride,
Companies are indeed hiring them why should they have to run & hide?

Yes there is the huge problem that I do agree with, the influx of drugs,
Hey! Stop using them & we won’t have to deal with most cartel thugs,
However, there is an even bigger problem killing more people I fear,
Those who drive drunk behind the wheel from liquor, wine and beer.

Dick's daughter Liz has started a movement, “Keep America Safe, ”
Certainly it’s a brilliant patriotic justified cause and idea but wait,
Cindy owns one of the largest beer distributors in the United States,
I mean no disrespect to your lovely wife but how can you retaliate?

Alcohol is even more deadly killing and maiming more by drunks,
Than illegal drug use so how can you stink and call them skunks?
As a former marine I am honored by your call to duty & sacrifice,
But you and no one alive should deny any minority a better life.

Get rid of the Indians, soldiers and prospectors would just shoot to kill,
Now for Mexicans there's civilized, 'Law & Order' they simply pass a bill,
2010 State Senator Russell Pearce quotes Jude 3, 'contend for the faith, '
No Russ, it's not what that means and you're several hundred years to late.

Jude is writing in regard to common salvation handed down to the saints,
To impel and contend for the sum of Christian belief through Godly faith,
It does not exclude anything not American and if that is what you heard,
Then you need to petition legally change to your name to King George III.

Finally, as for illegal Mexicans whom are border smuggling for drugs,
Most immigrants are looking for employment they’re not cartel thugs,
So for those who are exporting cocaine & marijuana in the U.S. to sell,
Did you stop to think drugs could not be sold if there was no clientele?
