Arizona Immigration Law - #1650 - Byron York - A Carefully Crafted Immigration Law in Arizona - Washington Examiner

The chattering class is aghast at Arizona's new immigration law. "Harkens back to apartheid," says the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Cynthia Tucker. "Shameful," says the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne. "Terrible…an invitation to abuse," says the New York Times' David Brooks.  For his part, President Obama calls the law "misguided" and says it "threaten[s] to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans."

Riot Police Called in to Protect Obama from Grandmothers - Michelle Malkin - J im Hoft at Big Government has some pictures from a Quincy, Illinois Tea Party today. President Obama was speaking nearby about Wall Street greed, and somebody obviously thought the Tea Partiers posed a major threat, because security reinforcements were brought in.
Thank goodness the riot police showed up quickly before something serious happened. Look at these extremist maniacs! Read more......  Wow! they look pretty dangerous to me.
