Skip to comments.Arizona House OKs bill to make illegal presence in state a felony
Posted on 03/31/2006 7:16:28 PM PST by SandRat
The state House approved a bill Thursday to expand Arizona's trespassing law to make illegal immigrants' presence in Arizona a crime and to enable local authorities to arrest them.
Under the bill, an illegal immigrant anywhere in Arizona would be guilty of a felony. A law officer arresting someone for investigation of a crime also would be authorized to question the person's immigration status.

How soon can we start enforcing this law?AWB
Now were talking... you think the SC will overturn? A lot of states are doing the same thing...
"Perhaps we could put more teeth into our efforts to alleviate our illegal problems if we upped the ante," Allen said
Excellent. Start now.
"The state House approved a bill Thursday to expand Arizona's trespassing law to make illegal immigrants' presence in Arizona a crime"
I wished the governor of Texas, Rick Perry, had the gonads to stand up to the illegals. He lost my vote next Nov.
Didn't think someone would have the OO to do it. Good move.
It's still got to get past the State Senate, Goober Pea Butch da Governor, and the inevitable State Supremes.
More than several decades late - but it's a start! The state legislatures are starting to get the message - and they want to keep feeding from the trough. Let's see who wakes up next.
So your thinking around 2020?AWB
This could stir the pot.
The State ACLU, MALDEF, LULAC, MeChA,.... will all be screaming bloody murder.
If this makes it past all obstacles, I'm movin' to Arizona.
Got a feeling this will be fast tracked.
Interesting...the quetion is will it be signed in to law by the democrat governor. And will her administration enforce it.
There is a lot of business lobby effort against such laws. The bussiness lobby wants the cheap labor. Its not that Americans wont do the jobs. Its that Americans actually want to get paid for them. Mexicans will work for a fraction and can be fired at a drop of a hat. Its like the middle ages...we have peasants again.
Glad to see the states exert their authority. The feds will spin their wheels for the next decade trying to decide what to do.
LOL. There want be any days like that for Perry. He has lost my too.
I would really love to see the State Senate pass this up to Nappy around June/July. She will really squirm trying to figure out what to do.AWB
But will they use it? I hope so and deport ASAP.
" wished the governor of Texas, Rick Perry, had the gonads to stand up to the illegals. He lost my vote next Nov."
You hit it on the head - this is the ONLY reason the Dem Gov. of AZ is pushing this now ... re-election. She's hoping to save her skin.
I agree. Can't stand politicians. Man oh man, whatever happened to statesmen, patriots?
Nappy will veto! Then call pubs hate mongers...
I'm glad I live in Georgia. Sonny has a set .... oo
It's a start.
Thanks for the ping Rat! I was just saying on TM this is what we have to do, state by state, I have no hope for Illinois
Sorry we're full. You'll have to wait until we deport a few more illegals before we will have any room./sarc AWB
"The State ACLU, MALDEF, LULAC, MeChA,.... will all be screaming bloody murder."
That's the idea.
My only concern is that the latter 3 won't just be screaming bloody murder eventually.
Ping, if you don'tmind. Can this work?
