Bring it on Brother Yarbrough, bring it on.

Dick Yarbrough writes:

State Rep. Rich Golick, R-Smyrna, is one of the more able members of the Georgia General Assembly, a serious young man not given to hyperbole. When he gets upset, it's noteworthy.

Golick went ballistic last week when the Mexican ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, came to Atlanta specifically to criticize a couple of pieces of proposed legislation regarding the estimated 425,000 illegal immigrants in the state of Georgia. Golick is chairman of the House Judiciary (Non-Civil) Committee, in which one of the bills is being deliberated.

"The arrogance displayed by the Mexican government is absolutely breathtaking," he said. "The Mexican government has inappropriately injected itself into a debate where it has no role, and its suggestion that we are wrong to seek to enforce our laws is an insult to every law-abiding citizen of Georgia. We are a nation of laws, and we will not be influenced by the condescending comments of a foreign government. In fact, my sense is that the Mexican government's comments have only strengthened the resolve of those of us who believe in a culture of enforcement rather than a culture of excuses and entitlement."

Amen and amen.

The ambassador might be better served to get his own nation's laws enforced. A reported 35,000 people have been killed in Mexico's drug wars in the last four years, including 15,000 last year.
