PHOENIX (AP) - Civil rights advocates vowed Saturday to challenge Arizona's tough new law targeting illegal immigration, saying it will lead to racial profiling of Hispanics despite the governor's assurance abuses won't be tolerated.
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill that supporters said would take handcuffs off police in dealing with illegal immigration in Arizona, the nation's busiest gateway for human and drug smuggling from Mexico and home to an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants.

The law will probably be thrown out by a Federal Court.
The court will have to defy the law to do it.
Federal Immigration and Nationality Act Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii) State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law. There is no extant federal limitation on this authority. The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws. Immigration officers and local law enforcement officers may detain an individual for a brief warrantless interrogation where circumstances create a reasonable suspicion that the individual is illegally present in the U.S. Specific facts constituting a reasonable suspicion include evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens.

Wonder what Putin would do if this same immigration law passed in Russia, and all the illegal aliens start protesting and appealing the law.... Just wondering.
The following is a quote from a Constitutional lawyer, John Armour, who freeps under the name Congressman Billiebob. He believes it will not be found unconstitutional for the following reasons.
“My main subject is respect for the Constitution. Obama has no such respect. The latest example came just today, Friday. Obama made a public statement that the new, stiff immigration law just signed into effect by the Governor of Arizona, involved violations of civil rights.”
“It involves no such thing. The Supreme Court has long since ruled on a case concerning police stops for ID purposes. The Court ruled that a brief stop asking any citizen to identify himself is constitutional. Someone who was a Professor of Constitutional Law, as entirely too many reporters have misidentified Obama, would have known that. (Obama was the lowest order of faculty, a lecturer in law, and that only because some Trustees of the University of Chicago insisted that the Law School find a spot for Obama, somewhere.)”
“The main point is that Obama does not give a tinkers dam about the Constitution. He is only concerned whether the preferred parties in any case are more likely to win than the politically disliked parties. Arizona has every right to pass a law that applies only to its territory, and for the benefit of its own citizens, concerning the legality of anyone who is in the state.”
“The Arizona law makes no new definition of who is an illegal alien, but accepts word for word the federal definition. Therefore, its new law will be ruled constitutional. I predict a 5-4 vote in favor of Arizona, because only four Justices on the Court believe that the Constitution is not a real barrier to whatever the current Administration wants to do.”
