Skip to comments.Arizona prepares to enforce strict immigration law
Posted on 06/13/2012 11:04:57 AM PDT by jazusamo
Arizona already is gearing up to enforce its strict immigration law as it anticipates a favorable ruling from the Supreme Court sometime this month, with Gov. Jan Brewer issuing an executive order Monday telling police to bone up on the details of the law.
Mrs. Brewer ordered that training materials produced to help police understand the law and its limits should be distributed throughout the state in preparation for a ruling. The materials, created by a state board that sets standards for all law enforcement, include a DVD designed to help police understand the circumstances that would allow them to question someone about his or her immigration status.
That power has been the most controversial part of the law, SB 1070, which Ms. Brewer signed in 2010 but which has been largely halted by lower federal courts as an infringement on federal powers.
In her order, Ms. Brewer said the materials need to make clear that an individuals race, color or national origin alone cannot be grounds for reasonable suspicion to believe any law has been violated.
Among other provisions, the Arizona law requires police to check the immigration status of those they have encountered during their duties and have reasonable suspicion are in the country illegally.
Immigrant-rights groups and civil liberties organizations said SB 1070 would lead to racial profiling, but that has yet to be tested in court.

Damned Straight! We need to get some Cojones and start doubling and tripling down like those damned Democrats. In your face, in your mind, and in your damned way!
Come on, Supremes!!!
God Bless Arizona!
Good. I hope the illegals pack up and leave Arizona before they can vote in November. They are more than welcome to live and vote in California. Hell, the California Democrats will send air conditioned busses to bring them to California.
And what then if they don’t get the favorable ruling from the SCOTUS?
This seems to be a REAL states rights issue, the kind on which, given a COMPLETELY out of touch, collectivist Federal government (no matter which party is in power), the whole future of our Republic turns.
I want all those illegals afraid to even hang out in front of the Home Depot or any of the multiple gas and quick stops....I want them living in fear - until they decide to go the hell home where they belong.
Hey Obama & Holder, looks from here like you’re being ignored.
I agree with you 100%. If Mexicans want to come then do it legally. Learn our language, honor our flag and our history. All these people want to do is carve out an enclave in our country and turn it into the crap hole they ran away from.
And they want the citizens of this country to finance it. They are a net loss/cost to this country ANY way you look at it, from ANY perspective.
Immigrant rights? WTH are those? Also, isn't an "immigrant" someone who goes through the proper process and is here legally?
"Immigrant rights" = "jumbo shrimp"
That's called Tucon.
Legal immigrants are one thing but these turkeys are illegal aliens and should have no rights at all other than to be deported.
That's called Tucson.
Strict? It is existing federal law.
SHHHHHHH....wait wait wait...is that a giant sucking sound?.....could that be the sound illegal immigrants doin the cha cha cha back into Sonara?
“God Bless Arizona!”
Concur. But here in Texas we have a ILLEGAL-CODDLING governor and a jerk who’s running for US Senate that does the governor’s dirty work in the legislature.
It’s an absolute EMBARRASSMENT to see other states (AZ and AL) so far ahead of us.
Don’t you think that they get away with this because they talk conservative on such issues as abortion, gun rights, family values and taxes? They may truly support these conservative issues in their hearts, I do not know, but there is more to being a conservative than just these issues. The old deadly sin of greed also comes into the picture. I hope Texas people catch on to these latter day patrones.
I feel very much the way you do. A neighbor of my daughter used to live in Texas near the Mexican border, she told me that they could not leave anything outside of their house. When she came up here she couldn’t believe how everybody kept wreaths on their door, kids toys and lawn ornaments and furniture outdoors without anyone stealing them. That says a lot.
As far as George Bush, he was the one who opened my eyes to the false conservatives called RINOs. Bush was on the side of the cheap labor and their masters. I hope the whole Bush clan fades into history.
Your post reminds me I have 2 lbs of these being delivered tomorrow.
Who is the jerk who is running for US Senate?
Great video on this topic.
“Who is the jerk who is running for US Senate?”
Perry’s bitch in the State Senate - David Dewhurst.
Thanks. You’d think the whole notion of cheap labor being good for America would have been settled by The Civil War.
“Dont you think that they get away with this because they talk conservative on such issues as abortion, gun rights, family values and taxes?”
That is why they have gotten away with it in the past...and that is why the Tea Party is so SICK OF THESE PEOPLE.
They talk the talk when they come home - and talk about how those ‘other Republicans’ are causing all of the trouble. But, back in DC, they do what they told to...and that usually has nothing to do what they promised, or what the grass-roots expected.
...but now they are starting to be held accountable, and we’re taking them down!!!
This freerepublic post says it all regarding Boehner and McConnell being the sellouts that keep appeasing their CFR masters instead of listening to the people. These two human mushrooms must have gotten the annointing from above (the CFR) in order to attain their high positions. Who in their right minds would have picked these clueless losers to be the leaders of the House and Senate except that they were picked precisely because they are clueless losers who can be ordered about by their puppet masters.
