“[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: Law Requires Police to Question Immigration Status]”

As I understand it this is also factually innacurate. It merely allows the police to inquire under certain circumstances.

Anybody know differently?

Brewer later wondered about the political fallout: “It’s forcing the President to address immigration policy. It’s forcing Republicans and Democrats to wrangle with it. But what really is driving voters and emotion right now are jobs and the economy. Is this a bad issue politically at this time?”


So “Illegal Immigration” has nothing to do with “jobs and the economy”?

Bwaaaahaaaahaaaahaaaahaaaa.

Where do they find these people? On the casting room couch?

70% of Germans favored the Nuremberg Laws.

Medved is right in that Republicans can only win with
non-white votes.

Also the State of AZ is broke. Who is going
to pay for the jail cells?

This law is just feel good BS. Real enforcement has to be at
the border and in policing the overstayed visas that make
up half the illegals in the country.

Law 'Makes it a Crime to be Illegal Immigrant'

that is the scariest thing of the whole debacle.

These people do not even realize the inanity of that phrase...

Which further illustrates why there is no way to reach them with logic or fact.

We simply must get control of both houses and the the WH AND KEEP THEM - then get rid of the Dept. of Education - turn schooling back to the local communities - and use online education (kids can get a REAL education in half the time and parents can monitor content.

This would also start to, incrementally, ease the tax burden as less teachers will be required and less lifetime taxpayers payments for retirees golden benefits - like free lifetime insurance and retirement allowed at 55.

Schooling, once the fed. gov't and the unions got involved, has shortchanged and indoctrinated our children. Public schooling has out-priced itself - and we have the new technology to educate our children with a far wider range of subjects from experts, new and old, from around the world...and for pennies on the dollar

...we have 30-40 years of ignorance to overcome.

It needs to be mandatory for anyone graduating to be able to take a separate test on the constitution.

Makes as much sense as saying that it is illegal to commit crimes.

Years ago those who couldn’t make it in a real college curriculum went to the teacher’s college; those who couldn’t make there went to the school of journalism.

Even physical education majors (supposedly where the dumb jocks landed) had a more rigorous course of study than these two.

83% of Arizona residents said a candidate's position on immigration issues is important. Seventy-three percent of respondents also said that it's more important that Congress secure the border than offer an amnesty for the nation's 12 million illegal aliens.

The majority of Republicans, Independents and Democrats all support the bill. [Admitted Socialists not included].

Appears the President seems TO BE LOSING on all fronts when it comes to the wishes of the majority of taxpaying, freedom living Americans.

“does this lead to a situation where neighbors are turning in neighbors or families turning against families?”

OMG!...This is ridiculous!....L.O.L.!!!

No kidding!! Did the lamestream big media regime ask if people would turn in their neighbors for not having health insurance when zero got his boondoggle passed?

How can you make something a crime that was already a crime?

If you have come here against the immigration policies of the United States, you’ve already broken our laws. You are already a criminal.

Arizona is finally putting an end to it, and that’s what truly drives the left batty.

Sanchez: “The issue we need to do is to deal with it on a national basis. We need to have a good visa program so that we can let workers who need to come to our country, come here and work, and not worry about hiding some place. And we need to fortify our borders in the correct manner, so that we can let the people we want to come in and keep people from coming in that we don’t want.”

This is hilarious. The frigging Federales have had years to do something and they have not. Now Arizona bases it’s state law on the federal laws (that are not being enforced) the the RATS are having a heart attack.

LOL!!!

Right. That's why the illegals lobby is fighting it so hard, because it will be ineffective./rolleyes

This sort of law worked well for Eisenhower under "Operation Wetback,"
"Then on June 17, 1954, what was called "Operation Wetback" began. Because political resistance was lower in California and Arizona, the roundup of aliens began there. Some 750 agents swept northward through agricultural areas with a goal of 1,000 apprehensions a day. By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught in the two states. Another 488,000, fearing arrest, had fled the country. By mid-July, the crackdown extended northward into Utah, Nevada, and Idaho, and eastward to Texas. By September, 80,000 had been taken into custody in Texas, and an estimated 500,000 to 700,000 illegals had left the Lone Star State voluntarily."
That's three months to move an estimated 1/3 of all illegal aliens back across the border.

It can work, all it requires id the guts and will to enforce the laws. Christian Science Monitor

The police in Latin American will stop and asking for your id at any time. They use this technique to pick up criminals as well...this link (you will need google’s page translation feature to read it in English) shows how last week police captured a blood thirsty hit man nicknamed The Butcher for his delight in dismembering humans and feed them to his pit bulls. However, what Arizona enacted is common practice in Latin American so any Latin voice complaining (read here politician or talking head like that clown Geraldo Rivera that claims to be a voice for Latinos when the sap can’t even speak Spanish)...anyway read at your own risk...the descriptions are somewhat shocking...http://www.eltiempo.com/colombia/justicia/la-macabra-historia-del-carnicero-de-las-farc_7620974-1

Unfortunately, our Pastor is just following the Bishop. The Catholic Bishops seem to be following the premise that since the Holy Family escaped into Egypt 2000 years ago when Herod’s henchmen were trying to exterminate all Jewish babies, that we should provide refuge for everyone in the whole world who is trying to escape the subjugation of another country.

When they write this out, however, they are very careful to say LEGAL immigration. But, when talking off the cuff, sometimes their real agenda slips out. This is the first time this Pastor has been so blatent. We are both very irritated and we have found the perfect excuse to avoid the Bishop’s Stewardship Appeal.

We give to the homeless. We give to crisis pregnancies. We give to support our own parish, and that is all.

We actually got a snide remark from our Pastor about AZ as part of the homily yesterday. Don’t look to my husband to increase his offering any time soon.

My Pastor has been talking about the evils of socialism lately and he also had some positive remarks about Arizona's new law.

So will the police in any Middle Eastern Country. We had a Lebanese friend when we lived in Washington State. His relatives in Lebanon bad mouthed America all the time (despite his many hand outs and gifts that he provided them). On one trip home, his cousins and uncles set upon him and started beating him up because he was living in the USA instead of being home fighting their war against Syria. After they had punched him for a while, they started complaining about all the imagined American affronts.

My friend brought his sister into the room and asked her to tell the others how they had travelled 1000 miles in the USA, through several states, without ever being stopped and asked for ID. She assured the others that it was true, and they were amazed. They were being stopped by militia when moving from one neighborhood to another.

They all would come here to visit and to seek medical care, BTW.

MSNBC: BREAKING — IT’S A CRIME TO VIOLATE LAWS!

Topeka, KS (AP) - The Supreme Court of the United States decided today that it was a crime to violate laws, by a 5-4 vote.

For the majorty, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “Are you effing KIDDING ME???!? What are you, PURE MORONS or WHAT???!?”

Justice Robert Stevens, in rebuttal, wrote, “It is a sad day in America when criminals are unable to ply their honest professions. The prejudice of this law is stunning: Those who have different lifestyles than some of the rest of us, will be THROWN IN JAIL for absolutely no reason. This is the very definition of a Fascist police state. Clarence Thomas is Hitler.”

Reaction on the street is mixed, with those who are presently robbing us, opposed to the new law. Those who are being robbed, raped and murdered are 95% in favor of the new law.

OMG! under Illegal Immigration Facts at that site the information is staggering.

Illegal aliens constitute over 25% of the federal prison population. Think about that for a moment. This means that a group which comprises less than 5% of the population is committing 25% percent of the crime.

Approximately 400,000 illegal aliens who have committed crimes and have been given a deportation order are at large in the U.S. and their whereabouts unknown.

and more...
