Good for me; not good enough for Arizona border security

Wonder why such an anti-incumbent mood around the country these days? Because people are tired of politicians speaking out their ass, that's why. Here's yet another example: The Messiah, whose visit to a Michigan high school's graduation will require all those in attendance to provide "their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks [could] be performed," at the same time thinks the Arizona immigration law is "unfair." (While misstating what could actually happen under it, too.)

Why's that, Mr. President? Why are you more important than the citizens of an entire state? Why have you -- and your Attorney General and your Homeland Security Chief -- opined negatively on the Arizona law ... when you haven't even read it?? YOU. HAVEN'T. EVEN. READ. IT. And, meanwhile, your Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner apologizes to the Chinese for the Arizona immigration law, saying it is "racial profiling." I wonder -- has he read the law? If so, it would be a remarkable first! But it's doubtful -- racial profiling is specifically prohibited in the law.

UPDATE: Victor Davis Hanson nails The Messiah -- and hypocrite Mexican President Calderón -- perfectly:

How strange that the president of Mexico, while a guest on the lawn of the White House, would attack the laws of a U.S. state, while his own country's immigration laws and policies in relation to Central America have never approached American tolerance. It is unimaginable that an American president would ever travel to Mexico City and lecture that nation and its president on its treatment of both aliens from Latin America and American tourists. But, as President Obama reminded us, "we are not defined by our borders" — although apparently a million Mexican nationals a year disagree and so risk everything to be on the north rather than the south side of a supposedly imaginary line. That is the truth that we dare not speak.

What will the SS do with any student who is found to be here illegally? Or to the illegal parents of any such student if info on their status is uncovered as a part of the clearance process?

Also, does the White House reserve the right to deny a student the opportunity to participate in his/her graduation on the basis of this background check?
