Posted on 09/05/2012 4:56:17 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
PHOENIX (AP) -- A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Arizona authorities can enforce the most contentious section of the state's immigration law, which critics have dubbed the "show me your papers" provision.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton clears the way for police to carry out the 2010 law's requirement that officers, while enforcing other laws, question the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally.
The requirement has been at the center of a two-year legal battle that culminated in a U.S. Supreme Court decision in June upholding the requirement.
Opponents then asked Bolton to block the requirement, arguing that it would lead to systematic racial profiling and unreasonably long detentions of Latinos if it's enforced.
Lawyers for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer urged the judge to let the requirement go into effect, saying the law's opponents were merely speculating in their racial profiling claims, that police have received training to avoid discriminatory practices and that officers must have "reasonable suspicion" that a person is in the country illegally to trigger the requirement.

Will 0bama deport anyone as a result? NO.
I want to see the video of H0lder’s tantrum.
Of course there is no guarantee that ICE will come and pick them up when the police collar them.
Even federal judges realize you can’t overturn laws before they take effect on the supposition that they won’t be followed.
maybe it will last until the election.
“the ‘show me your papers’ provision”
That’s about as clever as me calling the cop who pulled me over a Nazi for asking to see me license. Know what? One thing the US has in common withfl fascism (among many others since circa 1932) is that authorities occassionally demand to see ID. The horror!
Imagine, a judge actually agrees that police officers should enforce the law. You’d almost think they were ‘law enforcement’ officers once again. I’m sure this will corrected in short order. /s
You have to mentally darken the image but this is probably how it looked.
Many States Could Balance Budgets (if They’d Stop Paying for Illegal Aliens)
State Budget Gaps vs. State and Local Outlays for Illegal Immigration 2009 (Figures Shown in Millions)
State: California; Budget Gap: $19,639; Illegal Alien Cost: $21,756; Difference: -$2,117; As % of gap: 110.8%
State: New York; Budget Gap: $1,707; Illegal Alien Cost: $9,479; Difference: -$7,772; As % of gap: 555.3%
State: Arizona; Budget Gap: $2,432; Illegal Alien Cost: $2,569; Difference: -$136.80; As % of gap: 105.6%
State: Nevada; Budget Gap: $1,094; Illegal Alien Cost: $1,191; Difference: -$97; As % of gap: 108.9%
State: Michigan; Budget Gap: $313; Illegal Alien Cost: $929; Difference: -$616; As % of gap: 296.8%
Anyway, if enforcing immigration law is a bad thing for local cops to do, as Holder claims, why pick on Arizona? If hes really upset that the same laws he has taken an oath to enforce might actually get (gulp!) enforced, why isnt he suing Providence instead of Phoenix? Theyve been doing local immigration enforcement for years now. As The Boston Globe-Democrat reported From Woonsocket to Westerly, the troopers patrolling the nations smallest state are reporting all illegal immigrants they encounter, even on routine stops such as speeding, to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Hey! The Shadow Invaders finally lost one! It’s about time! USA #1 !!!

not too shabby for a Clinton appointee,, maybe she finally saw the light.. good for her.. and America.
If I’m not mistaken, several months ago Zero/Holder instructed ICE to NOT respond when police report the collar of an illegal.

LOL, good one. Ramirez sure hits the nail on the head with many of his editorial cartoons. Thanks for the post.
Yes, but now we must endure the 17 hours before a 3-panel appellate court stays the decision and lets mayhem resume.
The older I get, the less I can stand most judges!
