John Kavanaugh helpfully provides clues on how to ferret out the undocumented Canucks in Arizona

Last Friday author and journalist Terry Greene Sterling was part of a panel discussion on immigration.

During the panel discussion, a lively audience and the panelists tackled SB 1070 from a number of different angles — the morality of it, historical context, how it may be carried out, efforts to stop it, its legality, and, in the view of many, its racism.

At one point, Nancy-Jo Merritt noted that many of her undocumented clients are Canadians.

A spirited discussion ensued.

Rep. Kavanaugh announced that “illegals” who were Canadians could “stay” in Arizona because they have money and buy real estate.

Then he said, several times, that he was just kidding.

Rep. John Kavanaugh (R-Scottsdale/Fountain Hills) was kidding on the square. I’m fairly certain he was sending a signal to patriotic citizens fed up with the Canadian MenaceTM to alert them to where undocumented Canadians congregate so that they can call the gendarmes out to the scene to question them, based upon “reasonable suspicion”, of course. A friend of mine who was at the forum says that Kavanaugh claimed undocumented Canadians “buy foreclosed homes”. Wow! Another, more specific, clue! I mean, Kavanaugh is a former law enforcement officer and a self-proclaimed expert on illegal immigration so he must know from whence he speaks.

Trustee sales: Day labor centers for undocumented Canadians! Be sure not to stop and pick a bidder up in your car. If your passenger is a Canuck sans papiers, you’re transporting and harboring. Definitely don’t impede traffic while doing it. That’s an automatic misdemeanor, yo.

    Every time I think Arizona Republicans have sunk as low as they can, they surprise me and sink even lower.

    Kavanaugh “jokes” that undocumented Canadians are welcome to stay? How is that funny eh? Doesn’t the hoser realize that “jokes” like that are proof that 1070 is a racist law?

    Then at the Kagan confirmation hearing Sen Jon Kyl criticizes Thurgood Marshall for “his unshakable determination to protect the underdog.”

    Kyl has to be secretly rooting for Hayworth because JD’s election means Kyl would no longer be the meanest and most intellectually challenged member of Arizona’s Congressional delegation.

    Donna,

    Wow, I hope you are never on a jury where you have to use your judgment regarding evidence. Your standards of ” proof ” are pretty low .

    Of course John Kavanaugh was kidding…have you all lost your funnybones out there. He likes to use absurd comparisons to make his points. Too bad this one was over your head.
