Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is nearing a Saturday deadline to decide what action she may take on the state's immigration bill, considered to be among the toughest legislation in the nation.
What would the Arizona legislation do?
Arizona's bill orders immigrants to carry their alien registration documents at all times and requires police to question people if there's reason to suspect they're in the United States illegally.
It also targets those who hire illegal immigrant laborers or knowingly transport them.

Tired of McCain, Graham and the Libs...time for action.
All eyes watching Miss Brewer....
BTW...What's Miss Palin's position on this bill?
Did the governor sign the bill?
This is what the Federal Government should be doing. There is nothing irresponsible in the Arizona law no matter how many lies Obama speaks about it.
Has she taken a position on this, as so many others outside Arizona have?
In the old days, if you were an immigrant and had not qualified for a passport/citizenship, you had to carry your Alien ID card, along with your license, if you had one.
Never had to show mine.
But there is no govt in the world that has shown less respect for its own borders as the USG visavis the Mexican border.
The amazing thing is that it’s taken so long for people to wake up.
But then again, I don't think anyone knows what Palin's true position is on immigration, particularly since she tends to talk out of both sides of her mouth on such matters.
I hr...22 minutes.
ANYBODY : “ Sarah, you said you were against amnesty. What would you do, specifically, with the 20 million illegal immigrants that are already here? “
What would you do, specifically, with the 20 million illegal immigrants that are already here?
She already answered that question. She believes in giving them a path to citizenship. Anyone who says she was being disingenuous because she was campaigning, is calling her a liar.
Nobody in the media has DARED ask her this question......they either wouldn’t get an answer at all, or it would be more Bill Clinton ;-)
Much of the problem of illegals could be cured by imposing prison sentences on anyone employing them. One year per illegal employed ought to do it. And of course, remove illegals from welfare/health care freebies. Finally, no more anchor babies.
>>anyone employing them
You wanna put Mitt Romney in jail?
I haven't heard her speak on any of these issues lately. Maybe I'm just missing it, I'm not a news junkie so it's possible.
Sheriff Joe is going to have a field day with this! This bill directly gives him authority to enforce federal law and to force the feds to do the same.
They did it in South Carolina - and the illegals left. The system works if you enforce the law.
South Carolina Passes Illegal Immigration Reform Act

On June 4, 2008, Mark Sanford, governor of South Carolina signed into law an omnibus immigration bill (HR 4400), which requires employers to verify the identity of employees with either a South Carolina driver’s license or through E-verify. This bill also denies non-emergency medical care for undocumented adult immigrants by state funded clinics and hospitals. One important issues is that because federal law requires that care be given without discrimination, local healthcare providers will be facing a significant challenge in following the law. In recognition of this challenge, perhaps, no state agency is tasked with enforcing the new restrictions. Further, the new law goes on to prohibit undocumented immigrants from attending public institutions of higher education or receiving state funded scholarships. One particular and concerning issue is that the chief of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is mandated to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the federal government (ICE) regarding enforcement of federal immigration law. The new law also also allows for law enforcement personnel to be deputized and trained for these duties. According to AILA, the bill contains similar language to Oklahoma’s Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act of 2007 (H.B. 1804).
In the mean time, South Carolina’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation has established a Web site to assist employers comply with the new immigration law. But the new law mandates the Labor Department to investigate complaints against companies who are hiring illegal immigrants. According to the new law, South Carolina’s Labor Department is also responsible for randomly auditing businesses to verify employees legal status. Businesses with 100 or more employees must comply by July1, 2009 and all other businesses must follow the law by July 1, 2010. The new Web site is www.llr.state.sc.us/immigration. Georgia also has a similar law. Is Florida next?
