Arizona Passes Strict Illegal Immigration Bill
AP

Supporters celebrated the bill as a tough crackdown on illegal immigration that will protect the state from violent criminals.

PHOENIX -- The Arizona House on Tuesday approved a bill that would draw local communities deeper into the fight against illegal immigration despite arguments from opponents that it would do nothing to keep people safer.

House Republicans advanced the measure on a 35-21 party-line vote. The Senate approved the bill in February but must concur to changes made in the House before sending it to Gov. Jan Brewer.

Supporters celebrated the bill as a tough crackdown on illegal immigration that will protect the state from violent criminals.

Arizona's struggling economy has driven many illegal immigrants from the state. But as the economy rebounds, "so too will the illegal immigrants -- larger, stronger and more destructive than they were several years ago," said Rep. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills.

"We need to put this law in place now so that when the new illegal immigrants come, we're prepared to do battle with them," he said.

The measure would create a new state misdemeanor crime of willful failure to complete or carry an alien registration document. It would allow officers to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they're legally in the country.

The proposal also would ban so-called soft immigration policies at local police agencies. It would allow people to sue if they feel a government agency has adopted a policy that hinders the enforcement of illegal immigration laws.

The provision is designed to target law enforcement policies that prevent officers from asking people about their immigration status, but opponents worry it will make victims and witnesses scared to work with police and prosecutors.

"This is a false hope for the people of Arizona. It's a false sense of security for our neighborhoods," said Rep. Chad Campbell, R-Phoenix.

The bill is sponsored by Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, who is one of Arizona's loudest voices opposing illegal immigration.

Tuesday's vote demonstrated Pearce's political power at the Legislature and underscored the pressure on Republicans to support crackdowns on illegal immigration. The measure won support from all 35 House Republicans, including a handful who said they had serious concerns with the legislation.

"This bill is filled with problems, huge problems. But more importantly it will not stem the tide of illegal immigration," Rep. Bill Konopnicki, R-Safford, said before adding that he feels "obligated" to support the bill anyway.

Konopnicki said the best way to address illegal immigration is with fences, electronic surveillance, air support and more border patrol agents.

Pearce's bill also tries to crack down on employment opportunities for illegal immigrants by prohibiting people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day-labor services on street corners.

The measure also would make it illegal for people to transport illegal immigrants if the drivers of vehicles know their passengers are in the country illegally and if the transportation furthers their illegal presence in the country.

The bill is being closely watched nationally by groups on both sides of the immigration debate.

Chris Newman, legal director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, issued a statement condemning the House vote.

"Arizona has long been a laboratory for anti-immigrant experimentation, and its demagogue leaders have become folk heroes for white supremacists throughout the United States," Newman said. "But this bill ushers in a new chapter of disgrace for the state that resisted celebrating the life of Martin Luther King."

Arizona was one of the last states to create a holiday honoring the life of the slain civil rights leader.

Again good for Arizona.
the Federal Government refuses to do anything about illegals, maybe the states can do things like this and get the job done.
Once the illegals start moving out of the state if the Governor signs the bill, and jobs start opening up to the legal US citizens, peoples minds will be changed in that as well as other states.

Obama Blasts Pending Arizona Immigration Law: "Irresponsibility"

President Obama used a naturalization ceremony in the Rose Garden to lash out at the Arizona Legislature for passing a bill requiring proof of legal status and empowering state and local police to stop people based on a suspicion of being illegal immigrants.

Obama called for comprehensive immigration reform and said Washington's failure to act has bred a climate of fear and retribution in some border states. He singled out the Arizona bill - which would make it crime to be in the state without documentation - now before Republican Gov. Janice Brewer. The governor has until Saturday to decide whether to sign it, veto it or allow it to become law without her signature.

"Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others," Obama said. "That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe."

Obama said the administration will "closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs later explained the Justice Department will monitor "potential civil rights violations" experienced by legal residents.

When asked to explain whose rights would be violated, Gibbs said:

"Somebody that gets stopped who is legal resident, is a citizen. It's clear that in the law, if you're suspected to be (illegal) the law allows you to be stopped. You may be a citizen. That's what he's asked the Justice Department to look into, again, if it becomes law."

Asked about next steps, Gibbs said: "Once this becomes law, if it does, the president has asked them (Justice Department lawyers) to evaluate that...it doesn't make sense to get ahead of that evaluation. I think it's pretty safe to say from the president's remarks he's not supportive of the law."

Gibbs said the law would allow police to question legal residents based on the suspicion they could be in the country illegally.

Opponents have said if the bill becomes law enforcement would lead to a variation of racial profiling where Latinos would be questioned repeatedly to establish their legal status.

Gibbs said Obama opposes the bill but has not personally contacted anyone in the Arizona Legislature or Gov. Brewer's office to express his opinion. Brewer faces a GOP primary on Aug. 24 and is under pressure from some conservative groups to sign the bill.

In his Rose Garden remarks, Obama said if Washington fails on immigration reform "we will continue to see misguided efforts opening up around the country."

On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said immigration reform should be moved ahead of new green energy legislation, a move that cheered Latino voters angered that the issue appeared ignored during Obama's first year.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Illinois, chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, called Pelosi's move "a very significant sign."

As for Obama, Gutierrez told Fox: "I want him to keep his promise. During the campaign he made a concerted effort to reach out to Latino and immigrant voters carrying the state of New Mexico and Colorado and Florida, and I think many would say guaranteeing his presidency. There were eight million Latinos voting in 2004, 10 million voting in 2008, went for 60 percent for the Democrats to 70 percent. And when you consider for one moment that he got hammered by (New York Democratic) Senator Hillary Clinton in every primary among Latino voters and yet they came in overwhelming numbers for him in the general election, the stakes are really high."

But Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, told Fox there's more opposition to comprehensive changes to immigration now than there was when former President Bush failed on the issue in the latter stages of his presidency.

"I think the American people are not happy with the plans they saw before and they're not going to be happy with the plans that might come out of the Obama administration," Sessions said. "Right now we need to be thinking about how to create American jobs. People are out of work. There's more opposition within the Senate and polling data shows more opposition among the American people than time the bill was brought up last time."

Obama delivered his broadside against the pending Arizona immigration bill at a naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the U.S. military who became citizens after reciting the oath delivered by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. As governor of Arizona, Napolitano vetoed previous efforts to require proof of legal residency to state and local law enforcement.

The newly minted citizens are immigrants from the following countries: England, Philippines, Togo, Spain, Mexico, Guyana, Jamaica, Peru, Papua New Guinea, Haiti, Brazil, Kenya, Poland, Ethiopia, China and Colombia .

And what Obama and the rest of his regime refuse to acknowledge is that Arizona's law is focused on ILLEGALS not legal immigrants, also if you are here illegally you are not an immigrant you are an illegal alien. Immigrants are those who come here the right, legal way.
The rest are nothing more than criminals.
