PostSubject: Arizona Imigration Law   Mon May 03, 2010 1:57 pm

Add this to the convience of the BP oil spill. This has fired up their(Dems) voter base again to come out in November; couple this with the 2010 census reaportionment and patriots may have a rude awakening for it. A political sweep is NOT a given, all must remain fired up and try to get as many active as they can to participate in the upcoming elections. The fate of this nation is in OUR hands right now conversely so is its fall to third world status and even loss of sovernty. If you dont think that can happen I would suggest paying closer attention to world news and just who OWNS most of our debt and banks!

The Arizona sb1070 has finally been signed into a law and is now in action in Arizona. According to the law no immigrant would be allowed to wander around in the Arizona State without his/her documents and police reserves the right to investigate and question anyone they find suspicious.

According to the governor of Arizona this law has been signed because the drug wars in Mexico were becoming a big problem because the Mexican disputes were advancing very close to the Arizona border. Due to this there were many Mexicans and people from other races who were crossing the border illegally and hiding in Arizona.

A lot of other states are not happy about the signing of the law and are forcefully opposing this law because it violates the rights of the immigrants. According to democrats and liberals this law creates racism and that is not something that the United States promotes. Even President Obama is against this law and expresses his opposition by saying that the state was misguided and is now being unfair to the immigrants.

The rest of the states have started boycotting Arizona as an act of protest, though the seriousness of the boycott is still to be known. There have been many calls to boycott Arizona and it seems if the law is not revoked things may look pretty bad for Arizona.

Even the Attorney General is against the law and expects a legislative action against the immigration law within 90 days. Many celebrities have also raised voice against this law. Those celebrities include Jenifer Lopez.

I have to wonder what part of ILLEGALimmigrant some of these people don't get!!!!

PostSubject: Feds to file lawsuit over Arizona immigration law   Tue Jul 06, 2010 2:05 pm

By BOB CHRISTIE, Associated Press Writer Bob Christie, Associated Press Writer – 11 mins ago

PHOENIX – The U.S. Justice Department is filing a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigrants, setting the stage for a clash between the federal government and state over the nation's toughest immigration crackdown.

The planned lawsuit was confirmed to The Associated Press by a Justice Department official with knowledge of the plans. The official didn't want to be identified before a public announcement planned for later Tuesday by Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, a former Arizona governor.

The lawsuit will argue that Arizona's law requiring state and local police to question and possibly arrest illegal immigrants during the enforcement of other laws such as traffic stops usurps federal authority.

The government will likely seek an injunction to delay the July 29 implementation of the law until the case is resolved.

The government contends that the Arizona law violates the supremacy clause of the Constitution, a legal theory that says federal laws override state laws. It is already illegal under federal law to be in the country illegally, although the punishment and enforcement tactics of the Arizona are much more severe.

Tuesday's action has been expected for weeks. President Barack Obama has called the state law misguided. Supporters say it is a reasonable reaction to federal inaction on immigration.

Prior to seeing the lawsuit or receiving any official notification, Gov. Jan Brewer's spokesman called the reported decision to sue "a terribly bad decision."

"Arizona obviously has a terrible border security crisis that needs to be addressed, so Gov. Brewer has repeatedly said she would have preferred the resources and attention of the federal government would be focused on that crisis rather than this," spokesman Paul Senseman said.

Three of the five Democrats in Arizona's congressional delegation, who are facing tough re-election battles, had also urged Obama not to try to block the law from going into effect.

"This lawsuit is a sideshow, distracting us from the real task at hand," Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick said in a statement Tuesday. "A court battle between the federal government and Arizona will not move us closer to securing the border or fixing America's broken immigration system."

The law requires officers, while enforcing other laws, to question a person's immigration status if there's a reasonable suspicion that they are in the country illegally.

Arizona passed the law after years of frustration over problems associated with illegal immigration, including drug trafficking and violent kidnappings. The state is the biggest gateway into the U.S. for illegal immigrants, and is home to an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants.

Obama addressed the Arizona law in a speech on immigration reform last week. He touched on one of the major concerns of federal officials, that other states were poised to follow Arizona by crafting their own immigration enforcement laws.

"As other states and localities go their own ways, we face the prospect that different rules for immigration will apply in different parts of the country," Obama said. "A patchwork of local immigration rules where we all know one clear national standard is needed."

The law makes it a state crime for legal immigrants to not carry their immigration documents and bans day laborers and people who seek their services from blocking traffic on streets.

The law also prohibits government agencies from having policies that restrict the enforcement of federal immigration law and lets Arizonans file lawsuits against agencies that hinder immigration enforcement.

Arizona State University constitutional law professor Paul Bender said the federal government's involvement throws a lot of weight behind the argument that federal law pre-empts Arizona's measure.

"It's important to have the federal government's view of whether state law is inconsistent with federal law, and they're the best people to say that," Bender said.

Kris Kobach, the University of Missouri-Kansas City law professor who helped draft the Arizona law, said he's not surprised by the Justice Department's challenge but called it "unprecedented and unnecessary."

He noted that the law already is being challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups opposed to the new statute.

"The issue was already teed up in the courts. There's no reason for the Justice Department to get involved. The Justice Department doesn't add anything by bringing their own lawsuit," Kobach said in an interview.


Associated Press Writers Paul Davenport and Jonathan J. Cooper in Phoenix and John Hanna in Topeka, Kan. contributed to this report.
