We need to round up some people and I'm not talking about some dark haired hispanic people either. There needs to be an internment and reeducation camp set up for a bunch of politicians in Az. It's my understanding that civics are now taught in only about 1/2 of Americas' schools. Not only have these politicians not bothered to read federal laws concerning immigration they are under the delusion that they can just make up any law they want. They seemed to have forgotten once again that this nation has a constitution that covers the rights of its citizens. And this issue was yet another reason the U.S. went to war with Germany in the 1940s.
Here's the meat of the new law: (bold print be me)
B. FOR ANY LAWFUL CONTACT MADE BY A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR AGENCY
OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS
STATE WHERE REASONABLE SUSPICION EXISTS THAT THE PERSON IS AN ALIEN WHO IS
UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES, A REASONABLE ATTEMPT SHALL BE MADE,
WHEN PRACTICABLE, TO DETERMINE THE IMMIGRATION STATUS OF THE PERSON. THE
PERSON'S IMMIGRATION STATUS SHALL BE VERIFIED WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
PURSUANT TO 8 UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 1373(c).
And now the best part of their little scheme
E. A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, WITHOUT A WARRANT, MAY ARREST A PERSON
IF THE OFFICER HAS PROBABLE CAUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THE PERSON HAS COMMITTED
ANY PUBLIC OFFENSE THAT MAKES THE PERSON REMOVABLE FROM THE UNITED STATES.39
So basically what this is saying is a police officer can pull anybody over for no other reason other than the suspect that that person is here illegally. My question is how do you do that Officer Bumpkin? Can you tell them by their hair color? Their language? One idiot senator from the state said that he could tell by their shoes? What? Arrest everyone who isn't wearing Burno Mollys?
The only problem in this unconstitutional law is that it will back fire on the state big time. New Hampshire already tried something like this and it was overturned.
We have a constitution and we have federal immigration laws. It would be nice if they were actually followed and enforced them. It would also be nice if they actually sat down and read the constitution but I forgot they only read and believe what they want. If it isn't on Fox News then it must be a lie to them.
The 4th Ammendment of our constitution
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I may have another good post on this if I get around to it.
