Can Eric Holder read this?

“California Penal Code:

834b. (a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.

(b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the following:

(1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanentresident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall not be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding documentation to indicate his or her legal status.

(2) Notify the person of his or her apparent status as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws and inform him or her that, apart from any criminal justice proceedings, he or she must either obtain legal status or leave the United States.

(3) Notify the Attorney General of California and the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service of the apparent illegal status and provide any additional information that may be requested by any other public entity. (c) Any legislative, administrative, or other action by a city, county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity with jurisdictional boundaries, or by a law enforcement agency, to prevent or limit the cooperation required by subdivision (a) is expressly prohibited.”

If we had a real media they'd have a daily countdown of how many days it takes for him to read the bill: “Obama day 20 - Still Not Read!”

Uh... Does this mean that someone in the administration actually read the law?

What they’re mad about is not the law, per se,

but the intention to enforce it.

I’m not sure they can rule that an “intention to enforce” is a problem, but I’m sure they’ll try,

because, in their world, the “articulated knowledge” of the “intelligentsia” trumps written law.

The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that it’s not the law itself that he finds offensive—it’s that AZ wants to actually ENFORCE it. Several states and the US has similar laws on the books, but they’ve never been enforced. At least not recently.

Does this mean that someone in the White House has actually read the law?

Hah, GMTA! You posted your conclusion just a few seconds before I posted mine! I agree, I think that’s it: the enforcement of the law.

Does that include reviewing the jail cells of the thousands of illegal aliens in the US?

Or visiting the 50+ illegals on Death Row?

A-hole.

WHAT A HYPOCRITE. The same man that thinks the US Constitution is toilet paper, NOW IS WORRIED ABOUT A LAW BEING CONSTITUTIONAL. The Constitution is not a suicide pact.
You cannot pick and choose the laws you will follow.

We are ruled by an administration of tyrants and a natural born citizen of Kenya who think that natural born and legally immigrated Americans are all damn fools.

Maybe we are.

You nailed it. The problem isn’t the law, but that Arizona plans on paying attention to it! Immigration laws are meant to be touted every 6 years, then ignored.

I really hope they try somehow to strike it down. With %70 of the nation for it, it would be politically disastrous.

The logistical hoops they must jump though to arrive at the intended conclusion will cause their heads to explode.

What’s interesting is how AZ is standing its ground in the face of the usual media-PC tactics - intimidation, threats, the usual red-button words like “racist” and “discriminatory”, etc. - and the whiners are completely befuddled.

They’re following the playbook that worked so well in Europe, Canada, and the big universities, but suddenly they’re confronted with an opponent that refuses to be bullied. Even boycotts aren’t working! They’re stumped.

Stay tuned, this is fascinating.

Maybe they should take a very close look at civil rights laws for immigration implications?

“I think that’s it: the enforcement of the law.”

Spot on.

Eric Holder will call it the “Anticipatory Unlawful Enforcement Doctrine”.

“... suddenly they’re confronted with an opponent that refuses to be bullied.”

#####

Coming soon to such concepts as:

White racism.

Political correctness.

Non-judgmentalism.

Government “programs” that are nothing more than coerced theft from the productive.

And in the interview with Calderone, after he decried the Arizona law as racist,

he was asked what they’d do with someone who snuck into Mexico from Guatemala,

“is someone would do they, we’d send back them.”
