The Lyrics

Speaking at a Rose Garden naturalization ceremony (not for him) on 4/23, US President Obama, perhaps off-teleprompter, called "irresponsible" the Arizona legislature's passage of a law authorizing local officers to act on suspicion of undocumented persons. Later, Governor Brewer signed it. If she wants to reply in song to the President, whose administration in 2009 defunded further construction of the border fence and has refused to assist in boosting border security, I offer revised lyrics below to TOS.
Call us irresponsible, cause us unrequitable
Growth in crime and spending undue.
Tired of foolish alibis for you!
Quell them, would you ever? I've oft implored you.

Call them unevictable, tell me that's impractical.
Amnesty with fine you'd pursue!
Call me racist constable, but I'll not be buying that;
And though you'll deny that it's true, the irresponsible man is you.

He also said, "My administration will monitor to assure no violation of civil rights", and Mexico's President Calderon chimed in similarly. Arizona certainly got their attention; it's about time that this problem is tackled at a cooperative national level, but not unilateral amnesty.

I've been told the Arizona law is taken word for word from the unenforced federal statute. Here's my proposal to restore freedom in the US. Put the IRS in charge of the borders and let the Immigration Department collect taxes.

Yours is very good and well written. My song " Sheriff Joe Is The Man ", 4-26, addresses that very thing.

Instead of sending them back, maybe they should give them a ticket to washington DC

And how many of you would feel threatened by this Jaime Cuervo (Spanish for Jim Crow) law. Isn't unreasonable search and seizure forbidden in the Fourth Amendment? To sign a petition against this law, go here:

P, RH & T1K: Thanks & LOL at your solutions to this puzzle.
ML: Maybe you should read AZ Bill 1070 before getting so upset. Like Patrick, don't rely on hearsay.

ML - Jaime Cuervo! LOL! A typically well-executed BJM take, delivered with wit and style. ;D
