ACLU issues travel warnings to Arizona
AP on Yahoo ^ | 6/30/10 | Bob Christie - ap

Posted on 06/30/2010 3:18:21 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

PHOENIX – The nation's top civil liberties group on Wednesday issued travel alerts for Arizona, saying the state's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants could lead to racial profiling and warrantless arrests.

American Civil Liberties Union affiliates in Arizona, New Mexico and 26 other states put out the warnings in advance of the Fourth of July weekend. The Arizona chapter has received reports that law enforcement officers are already targeting some people even though the law doesn't take effect until July 29, its executive director said.

The alerts are designed to teach people about their rights if police stop and question them.

In my political dictionary, I got them listed somewhere between varmint and vermin.. leaning toward vermin.

The ACLU,, that is.

All the more reason to go to Arizona - the ACLU say’s “don’t”.

I think I heard that there is ONE safe-haven for anti-Arizona-illegal-immigration-law folks.. Yeah, it’s approximately 80 miles in from the border and it has signs around it posted by our fricking Government saying “Do Not Enter” because there’s a bunch of drug running Mexicans inside with heavy weapons. Enjoy! /Sarcasm

Sue the ACLU for slander.

Slander: a malicious, false, and defamatory statement or report

You forgot the word VOMIT. That best describes the ACLU.. Chewing up and hurling our Constitution in tiny little pieces. “F-THEM” TO HELL. They are Satan on earth.

“the state’s new law cracking down on illegal immigrants could lead to racial profiling and warrantless arrests”

No it couldn’t. Not legally, anyway. They could always break the law and start rounding up people arbitrarily. Of course, if that was the plan you have to wonder why they bothered passing a new law, thereby alerting the ACLU’s eagle eyes to their secret intentions.

If a person is not an adult and doesn’t know what their rights are......they are in big trouble. They should go back to school. Sounds to me like we all need to go to Arizona on vacation.

Slightly off topic but as to an Arizona buy-cott, I'm wondering if there was any organizations where you can purchase tickets to Arizona ball games, auto races or consorts (or even movies)and the tickets would go to local under privileged or the Boy Scouts or some other worthwhile organization. If there isn't one, someone should start one.

So, if I understand the ACLU properly they’re saying that Arizona is a MUCH SAFER place to visit, as illegals will not be around much.

Sounds good to me.

The ACLU has no concerns about travel in North Korea or Iran, just Arizona.

Not funny but I did laugh. The ACLU’s goal of dismantling America, bit by bit, is so obvious it stinks. But then again, if it’s not discussed on Oprah or Judge Judy, the voting public doesn’t give a crap, let alone know.

I can see it now on Arizona license plates. “Arizona.. The Legal Citizen’s State”. Arizona is looking mighty tempting. It’s quite possible Arizona will benefit greatly for standing up to Obama’s tyrannical administration. Oh wait.. How about, “Arizona.. We Ain’t Scared”.

Here is my travel warning about the ACLU:

The National ACLU is hazardous to your health, especially if you are a moderate or conservative, and particularly if you are a Tea Party supporter.

They will protect criminals and terrorists and jihadists over you as a victim of their actions.

Some local ACLU attorneys and offices are good, decent people who actually try to protect your Constitutional Rights, but the National Office and regional leaders long ago sold out to the marxists and the left-racists.

They are the fourth leg of the anti-American cabal of the National Lawyers Guild, Center for Constitutional Rights, and National Emergency Civil Liberties Union, the NLG and NECLC being congressionally cited in the past as Communist Party front operations, and the CCR is a creation of the NLG and is just as marxist as its creator.
