Arizona To US Government: Do Your Freaking Job

I wanted to comment on the YouTube video put out by the governor of Arizona:

This situation is similar to how citizens take the law into their own hands and become vigilantes when local or state governments don't do their primary job and enforce public order. The last president to address illegal immigration was Reagan, and his efforts addressed only half of the problem via an amnesty for illegals already in the country, without following up on securing the border. George H.W. Bush ignored the issue, as did Clinton. George W. Bush tried to address it but failed, because he wanted to try the same failed policy that Reagan had passed: amnesty, then secure the border.

Secure the border first. After that everything else will eventually be solved, but if the border isn't secured then it's as if you left a broken dam to continue flooding your valley.
