Al Sharpton pledge to fight Arizona immigration bill
The New York Post ^ | 4-25-10

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.

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.

Al is math challenged - still hasn’t realized: 2 (amnesty bill) + 2 (20 mil illegals) = 4 (Hispanics number one minority in U. S.)

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 $$$$.

Isn't it rather interesting that all of these supposedly post-racial characters like Mr. OBozo, Mr. My-Lips-Are-Moving-So-I-Must-Be-Lying Sharpton and others are all in a tizzy over a law which merely reasserts the same laws which exist at the Federal level, but not one peep from them when a White rancher gets murdered by a foreign national on his own land...an overt act of terrorism, pure and simple?

Interesting, that.

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.

Communists on the march. Tea Parties have to change direction and take these crap heads on, the hard way. Glen Beck is wrong. Totally! There is no other way to wake the Country up to the fact that we have been overthrown by the communists with the election of King Obama at its figurehead. For over 50 years the communists have worked hard destroying our Constitution. This nitwit King Obama is an empty suit following his corrupt group of hard core communists and the worst bunch of anti-Americans this Country has ever seen.

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.

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. Don’t 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.
