Skip to comments.Al Sharpton pledge to fight Arizona immigration bill
Posted on 04/25/2010 10:43:08 AM PDT by Justaham
The Rev. Al Sharpton says he will challenge Arizona's new immigration bill in court and on the streets.
Sharpton is joining Lillian Rodriguez Lopez from the Hispanic Federation to announce a legal challenge to the bill. They say activists are also prepared to commit civil disobedience to fight the Arizona immigration bill.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill Friday. It requires police to question people about their immigration status including asking for identification if they suspect someone is in the country illegally.
The law will take effect in late July or early August. President Barack Obama has called the new law "misguided" and has instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal.

How does open borders help Blacks? Thats quite a stretch, Sharpton you race baiter.
It is not an “immigration” bill.
I must have missed where this nitwit was from. I could have sworn it isn’t Arizona. /sarc
Al needs to mind his own business. Or maybe he should be forced to live right on the border and see what it’s like.
OK, Al, we’ll send all we catch to your district in New York; you deal with ‘em!
Al, Blow it out your A$$!
Al is math challenged - still hasn’t realized: 2 (amnesty bill) + 2 (20 mil illegals) = 4 (Hispanics number one minority in U. S.)
Anything to garner publicity.
The commie ‘RATS like Al are really concerned right now about ‘RAT voters. Without taxpayer dollars out their funding ACORN, the commie ‘RATS are going to have to find another source of anti-American dumbasses to vote for them.
I see Sharpton is finally profiting from some of our tax dollars being given to groups like La Raza.
His own race is against amnesty and for enforcement...but Al, like Barak, cares nothing about the well being of his own race or any American, for that matter. It’s all about $$$$.

In fact, the 95% figure of black Americans supporting Obama, I believe is a big media lie. I just don’t see it.
Hankerchief head negros, is what Terry Anderson calls Sharpton, Jackson, et al.....those who bow and sell out to further their own selfish interests.

Has Al Sharpton by any chance said anything about that dead rancher? If not, he needs to STFU.
Hispanics pass Blacks as the number 1 minority a few years back. 20 mil illegals will solidify their political power and then then Progressives won’t need black people. And ATTENTION WHORES like Al be useless.
Hey Al. Bring it on!
Hopefully, the police decide to try out the new law during one of Sharpton’s street protests...
Your on Al! Bring it.
Illegal immigration hurts blacks disproportionally.
Let’s take this in another direction. How can a locality declare itself a “sanctuary city”. That means that if an illegal alien is detained for the alleged commission of a crime, the local law enforcement is NOT ALLOWED to alert the Federal Authorities of his/her status. If they are going to get into the Supremacy Clause, which they somehow will, how does that affect this issue?
IMO, all states that have municipalities or local gov’ts, or declare themselves “sanctuary states”, should be disqualified for all Federal funding.
Al Sharpton is the chosen ones conduit to the street. Obama has sent him to do his dirty work.
The insidious thing about this is that if Obama manages to reverse this thing, then he becomes a GIANT among Liberal Dems and illegal aliens [ie. new American voters after amnesty].
All of this, healthcare and illegal immigration is a battle for state’s rights.
What standing does Al Sharpton have to challenge this bill??
It would be a blast if Obama came to AZ and was arrested for being an illegal alien ....
He is not in Congress so he does not have a district. Instead, unfortunately for us, he represents all political situations where race can be inferred as present.
Illegal is not a “race”.
>”What standing does Al Sharpton have to challenge this bill??”
He has alot of experience.
“The Horrible Tawana Brawley Hoax” , which Sharpton was (imho) should have been named co-conspirator.
All Sharpton is directly responsible for 7 deaths at Freddies Fashion Mart. He should be in jail.
Al Go to Hell!!
Check if Sharpton is not an illegal alien when he enters AZ and have photographers waiting for the vent to record his reaction. It’ll be a blast.
vent = event

I was only counting legals.
His 'hood, then!
“Civil disobedience”? Sounds like fun Al, it should speed up the backlash considerably!
Sharpton, get the heck out of Arizona.
Yep, they need those illegal votes to remain in power. Blacks, liberal whites, and students are demoralized from Zero's agenda and they're not going to come out like they did in 2008.
Let him live in a trailer on the border...see how long he lasts!
“They say activists are also prepared to commit civil disobedience to fight the Arizona immigration bill. “
Threats by radical extremists.
Real immigration reform:
1. Secure our borders. This is first and foremost. Build the damn fence! Congress authorized it and we, the American people, paid for it.
2. No more anchor babies. To be an American Citizen, the parents of any child born in this country must have been legal residents of this country for a period of six months.
3. All illegal immigrants have 90 days to leave the country. Dont say we are breaking up families as their families are free to go with them. Once they are out of the country they may apply for immigration based on the same rules everyone else must follow.
4. Any illegal who fails to leave within the 90 day window will be arrested when found and will have 10 days to prove their citizenship/immigration status. If citizenship/immigration status is not proven within the 10 day window, they will be deported and never allowed back in this country again. Again, families are free to go with them.
5. Illegal immigrants who apply for refuge status within 30 days of arrival in this country are exempt from items 2 and 3 above until their refuge status is determined by the courts.
6. Anyone coming to this country on a student visa will be required to attend the school listed on their visa as a full time student and to maintain a C average. Any foreign student on a visa will be reported by the school to the immigration department when their class load drops below 16 hours, their GPA drops below a C average, or they have three consecutive days of absence without a valid reason.
7. No tax payer funded or tax payer guaranteed student loans will be issued to foreign students.
8. Employers who negligently hire illegal immigrants will be fined an amount equal to one year gross income and will be banned from all government contracts for a period of five years. A second offense will result in a fine equal to ten years gross income, loss of any and all business license(s) for a period of ten years, a lifetime ban from all government contracts, and one year in jail for the owner, partners, president of the company, and/or CEO and all board members.
9. Any city, town, or municipality which feels they do not have to cooperate in the enforcement of immigration law or any city, town, or municipality which refuses to obtain immigration status of any one stopped or arrested for any crime or misdemeanor forfeits all federal funding.
10. Any tax exempt organization, religious, political, or any other type, which aids and abets illegal immigrants to prevent their deportation will lose their tax exempt status.
11. Illegal immigrants are banned from receiving any services or benefits provided at tax payer expense. This includes but is not limited to medical care, education, food assistance, rent assistance, women/infants/children (WIC), child care, transportation, job placement, etc..
12. Special employment (H-1B or similar) visas will only be issued if the employer can show the skills required to fill the position are not available anywhere in the United States and would be an undue burden in time and/or finances to train a United States citizen to obtain these skills. Proof of the requirement that the skills not be available in the United States may be fulfilled by publication of ads advertising for these skills in 10 major newspapers each with circulation of 500,000 or more with no qualified responders or advertisement on 10 national job posting web sites with no qualified responders and advertisement on the companies web site with no qualified responders. The burden of proof will be with the employer that no responder fulfilled the requirements.
13. Total immigration for all reasons will be limited annually to a specific number of immigrants to be determined. Once that number is determined it may not be changed except by a super majority in both houses of congress and signed by the President of These United States. i.e. Each immigrant granted refuge immigration status would mean one less for general immigration.
After all the above have been in place and enforced for a period of two years, then we can begin to discuss visas for temporary or migrant workers.
It just shows that Al cares more about protecting crimes in Arizona than protecting the citizens of Arizona.
Is he coming to show support to the Krentz family for their loss?
