Arizona governor signs immigration enforcement bill

Update 4/24/2010: A reader provided this appropriate image for this subject.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer today signed into law a bill to address illegal immigration in Arizona which is one of the nation's gateway for human and drug smuggling. The legislation makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It also requires local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants, allows lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws, and make it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them.

The new immigration law will require anyone whom police suspect of being in the country illegally to produce "an alien registration document," such as a green card, or other proof of citizenship such as a passport or Arizona driver's license. It also makes it illegal to impede the flow of traffic by picking up day laborers for work. A day laborer who gets picked up for work, thus impeding traffic, would also be committing a criminal act.

Brewer also issued an executive order Arizona Police Officer Standards and Training board to develop training that will help police agencies appropriately implement the legislation, including what does or does not constitute reasonable suspicion that somebody is an illegal immigrant. Brewer vowed to protect individual civil rights, saying, "I will not tolerate racial discrimination or racial profiling in Arizona." The law goes into effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends, which is expected to be sometime in early May. Plenty of time for illegals in Arizona to leave. However, surrounding states may now be faced with the an expanding number of illegals heading to their states verses back across the Mexican border.

President Obama whose administration has failed in securing the borders under his present Secretary of Homeland Security whi happens to be the former Arizona governor Janet Nepalitano. President Barack Obama in an attempt to influence the Arizona governor to veto the bill called the Arizona immigration bill “misguided” and said it could violate people’s civil rights. Obama presumes to interfere with the right of states to protect themselves after he as president has failed in his responsibility to secure the U.S. borders against invasions by illegals. Mr. President, illegal aliens (regardless or nationality or origin outside the U.S. be it Mexico, Ireland, Iran, Kenya or any other country) are not entitled to civil rights in the United States.

The states are finally fighting back to get their own law passed to deal with illegal immigration like the bill that the Gov. of Arizona signed. Of course, McCain is becoming a conservative now that he is up for re-election. It was mentioned on the news today that 22,000 murderers have taken place on the border and in Mexico since their new President took office. McCain is now calling for 3,000 Nat. Guard troops on the border. It is just awful how our federal government is allowing this destruction of the Southwest United States of America. It is not only the S.W., they are fanning out to all the other states too to get their entitlements from their northern neighbor. It is really something that American tax payers pay for Mexican's entitlement programs.
It would not be as bad as it is without all the American drug heads buying the dope that is coming over the border.

Checkout the following quotes by TexasFred and read more at Advocates vow challenges to Ariz. immigration law:

Since 1954 . . . the federal government hasn’t acted, in a positive way, to correct the invasion that is rapidly dragging this nation into being looked at as an ever expanding 3rd world nation. It’s not politically correct to defend our borders and expel those that violate the borders and break our laws, it’s considered a violation of the lawbreakers CIVIL RIGHTS!

. . . If anyone even remotely imagines that Barack Hussein Obama is going to do anything to rectify this ILLEGAL INVASION, other than granting the invaders amnesty and full citizenship, I have some oceanfront property near Amarillo that you may be interested in!

. . . Not to take anything away from Arizona, and certainly not denigrating them for passing this law, BUT, there are already laws on the books regarding being in this nation illegally. The thing is, if the states don’t enforce these laws, they will never be enforced, not on a federal level, not as long as we have politicians that are far left libbers and RINOs that are afraid to stand and defend America 1st!
