Arizona governor signs immigration bill (If the Feds won't enforce it then the states will)
cnn ^ | 4/23/2010 | staff

Posted on 04/23/2010 3:51:53 PM PDT by tobyhill

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a state bill Friday that requires police to determine whether a person is in the United States legally, which critics say will foster racial profiling and discrimination but supporters say will crack down on illegal immigration.

The Republican governor also issued an executive order that would require additional training for local officers on how to implement the law without engaging in racial profiling.

"This training will include what does and does not constitute reasonable suspicion that a person is not legally present in the United States," Brewer said after signing the bill.

Previously, officers could check someone's immigration status only if that person was suspected in another crime.

“requires police to determine whether a person is in the United States legally”

I thought it was just in the state legally?

Is there any media we can trust any longer?

Cool. Arizona's leading the way on a couple of fronts.

I hope we can expect to see several States follow suit...

This is excellent news on it’s own, but the entertainment value watching the left go crazy is an added bonus.
And they ARE going crazy about this.

Arizona will need to start immediately to figure out what it can do, legally, if the Federal Government attempts to over ride their new law. Obama will surely attempt to step in.

For those who are too young to know of it, doesn't federalism bring on a great feeling?

It's about d@mn time somebody took the bull by the horns!

Expect the lawsuits to be flying now however.

Illegals have already overtaken America and the only reason Obama is so against this is it will force his hand on illegal immigration.It is a sad day when the Democrats will sell Americas future for votes and their position. Any Republican doing the same thing is even worse. John McCain and his flip flop and Lindsey Graham pushing for this are traitors not only to the Republican Party but to real Americans as well. It is a fact White people in America have become an expendable commodity to politicians.

Could it be that Barry Sotero is himself an undocumented worker?

I had thought AZ was too far gone, but kudos to them. They may be the first state to bring themselves back from the brink of elimination. California is way gone...New Mexico has tipped...Texas better get a hold of its britches before they find themselves with a socialist majority via illegal immigration.

Obama better not go to Arizona. He can't prove that he is an American Citizen.

You got it. We need to get the word to Governor Perry to submit a similar bill to the Texas Legislature.

I'm pretty darn sure a Federal judge will issue a stay upon the first complaint by a legal resident of hispanic origin.

The accusation will be racial discrimination...and the law will be tied up in the courts for YEARS.

King Obama is a fool to try. The uprising from the conservative States would really upset the little rat face. It's time to move and this might be the opening..

I don’t trust that hispanics will be targeted, officials will go out of their way to only target white men and old ladies like the TSA. American citizens should not hear the phrase “Papieren, bitte.”

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Good to see a Governor listening to her people. What was priceless, was after "The One" yammered on and on, about how this wasn't going to be good for America, she knew it would be the best thing for America, and put her Jonn Hancock to it.
