Arizona Governor Signs Controversial Immigration Bill
Fox News Reporting ^ | 04/23/2010

Posted on 04/23/2010 2:11:09 PM PDT by JimBobWay

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed a controversial bill that seeks to crack down on illegal immigration.

The sweeping measure will make it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It will also require local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally.

Earlier, President Obama called the bill "misguided" and said it could violate people's civil rights.The bill's Republican sponsor, state Rep. Russell Pearce of Mesa, said Obama and other critics of the bill were "against law enforcement, our citizens and the rule of law."

Gee, why such a harsh bill, enforcing the law and all? They only have people being murdered. /s

Barack Hussein Lying Obama is as responsible for this bill as anyone, he has the nerve to stand there today and go on about how he and Napolitano have done all these things to secure the border, as if that part of the problem is solved and now on to amnesty.

Outrageous.

YOO HOO! GOD BLESS GOVERNER BREWER! By signing this bill she demonstrates her respect, courage and committment to the laws and the people of Arizona! Hopefully she will be an inspiration to governors across the country, not just on the border.

Pray for her safety now more than ever.

To see if the Justice Department is legal?

Neither. It is a victory for the citizens of Arizona and the Rule of Law. This law should be passed regardless of whether it was Bush or Obama in the WH.

The controversy is that the law is now actually going to be enforced...

It’s okay to be an illegal president... Now it’s just not okay to be here illegally.

Now let’s aim for the first objective!

Exactly.

See http://www.butterdezillion.wordpress.com

We either became a nation with the rule of law, or we become the same Mexico whose drug lords now pattern their behaviors after those who beheaded Daniel Perle and posted the video of it.

Where’d this governor come from? Heard her clip on the news. She had a great remark that this bill was to compensate for the federal government's “misguided” inaction on this for years. Nice to slap that particular word sharply back across “The One”’s face after he just used that word to criticize the Arizona law in his usual condescending tone.

Anyone have any doubt whatsoever that this excuse for a President, is a treasonous offense to patriotic tax paying citizens of the United States of America.

If this bill is “unconstitutional” (Which “constitution” are they talking about?), wouldn’t Arizona DPS asking me to show them my vehicle registration, driver’s license and proof of insurance ALSO be “unconstitional”? I know. I know. The Klowns at the 9th Circus are going to shred this thing to bits. They always do.

Especially after all the times this jerk has flipped the bird at strong women, it’s about time he had it back in his own face.

Well done, Governor!

Now if Governor Lingle would take the cue...

On second thought...there could be a problem with it by my understanding.They might have to amend it to read that *all* people questioned/detained by police in AZ are to be questioned regarding their immigration/citizenship status.Do that and *no* questions can be raised regarding “discrimination”.

“Arizona Governor Signs Controversial Immigration Bill”

It’s “controversial” to enforce the law? How about we park a busload of illegals in front of obuma’s Chicago house and tell them to go inside and make themselves comfortable.

Oklahoma passed strict immigration laws in 2008 but haven't been challenged.

Hey, you have a point there.
You know, it's funny how the AP never referred to a “controversial” bill when 0bama signed the really controversial, rammed through 0bamacare bill which most Americans were against, yet the AP is busy calling a bill that 70% of Arizonians support as “controversial”. The lamestream media never fail to deliver on their total bias do they?

There’s a strong case against it being found unconstitutional.

The feds powers re immigration are to “make uniform” the standards and rules for immigration.
But NOT to enforce them! That was still up to the states!

If the fed abdicates its responsibilities, and it clearly appears to have done so, the states have every right to take action.

Yes, they have been challenged. HB 1804 draws new legal challenge in Oklahoma--Labor unions, immigration advocates, civil rights groups and even the National Center for Lesbian Rights have joined business groups to battle parts of Oklahoma’s illegal-immigration bill.
