Arizona Appeals Immigration Law Ruling!!!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikSad Sad

arizonaap100722023221__opt1.jpg

Two steps forward, one step back. What is wrong with people?

Yesterday, a morally in tuned judge ruled that parts of Arizona's new Immigration law would be put on hold for further review, including the section requiring officials to check a resident's immigration status when enforcing other laws if there's a reasonable suspicion the person is in the United States illegally.

We were thrilled by the news, as were many others who have been fiercely protesting this law, which is basically legalizing racial profiling!

Yeah, well, the dishonorable Governor of Arizona isn't happy with this decision to hold back and has filed an appeal to lift the preliminary injunction so that the ENTIRE law can take effect…and like, NOW!

How about, instead of that, you just BACK THE EFF OFF?!?!

Ugh! This whole thing is so super frustrating! We can't stand seeing such blatant inequality being tolerated!

Boo on you, Arizona!

    i support the enforcement of this law. that is all.

    I know it seems like a close line to "racial profiling"; but it's not. The point is, the issue of illegal immigration in Arizona DOES have a racial component. That isn't because it's racist; it's because of locale. You are focusing on that here in relation to Hispanic people; but the same immigration rules apply to all races, and illegals who are Irish or Nordic or whatever are also subject to these laws. To date, I actually haven't heard any Arizona proponents of this law saying that they don't intend to check immigration status of EVERY individual stopped for a possible crime, no matter what their race. It may be that is the procedure they intend to move forward with. I also see a strong potential benefit if this is the case, since that would provide a great discouragement to people who otherwise WOULD commit crimes. Our nation is crumbling to pieces fast while we allow all sorts of tolerances for criminals and other people who break laws to do pretty much whatever they want, and that's just not dealing with the realities that confront our nation.



  4. 204

    GO ARIZONA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  5. 205

    So stop the whinning. Everything you take for granted they appreciate and all those little toys, eats and drink you have is because of them. You want it all for a great price that will no longer be. Then what will you whin about?



  6. 206

    What in the hell is wrong with you ppl! Arizona is wanting the federal law imposed. HELLO?? THey've been begging for help with no relief from the government at all. It's has nothing to do with equality. We can't take EVERYONE and pay for EVERYTHING! Get in line like everyone else!!!



  7. 207

    If you are here ILLEGALLY. You ARE BREAKING the law. Any other country would have you deported immediately after staying your welcome. All Arizona is doing is putting the FEDERAL LAW in effect. If a certain race was not here illegally so often, this wouldn't be an issue. Unfortunately, it is so. So, prove your citizenship or get the eff out and be on your way.



  8. 208

    Did you forget Perez that it is illegal to be illegal? If a US citizen was caught illegally in any country, they would be treated pretty harshly, and probably deported as soon as possible. They would not be harbored and catered to. CITIZENS of the USA have rights, not illegal immigrants. What the hell is wrong with this country?



  9. 209

    Re: bearmonty – that has nothing to do with it retard. if illegal immigrants come to america looking for a better life, take the first fucking step and become legal. i don't care who you are or what your profession is!

    you must not pay taxes.



  10. 210

    What is wrong with you? SHUT UP already about this! You sound like an idiot! It's the LAW



  11. 211

    Excuse me. You dont know what you're talking about. How dare you say "boo Arizona" I happen to live in Phoenix, and I'm here to tell you we have NOTHING to do with this law. Its the governer. We didnt vote on it, so its wrong and unfair for everyone to be mad at an entire state. Plus if you knew the state of things here, what with the mexican on the border killing people you might think differnt.



  12. 212

    Perez, I love your website and everything, but you REALLY need to take the time to read the law. If you travel outside the US they want to see your passport to make sure you're legal to be in the country we, the US, have the right to do the same thing.



  13. 213

    you people are so ridiculous and obviously don't live here in Arizona.. yes we do want the illegal immigrants to be stopped but not at the expense of legal american citizens in our cities..
    and to all you people quoting other countries laws..
    WE LIVE IN AMERICA.. WHAT SETS US APART IS THAT WE HAVE THESE LAWS TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF OUR CITIZENS
    who cares what happens to you in other countries.. this is America



  14. 214

    I dont understand what people dont get about ILLEGAL immigration… i dont see these people supporting murders, and druggies, and OTHER criminals why are we all about backing these criminals coming into our country? there was one woman on the news protesting one day saying stuff like leave them alone they're not breaking any laws…. WTF lady… yes they are…. i'm sorry but i dont support lawbreakers.. more power to you perez for supporting common criminals



  15. 215

    Re: AngChambers06 – YOU obviously don't understand!!! or just haven't bothered to read it! I live in Arizona so have become very familiar.. we want ILLEGAL immigrants out.. but the law makes it legal to harass LEGAL.. get that… LEGAL citizens if they look to be hispanic.. well look like they could be an illegal immigrant.. now please tell me how you can just look at someone and decide they are an illegal immigrant.. I mean i'm italian.. so dark hair dark eyes.. think if I get a tan they should be able to harass me because I MIGHT look like I MIGHT be hispanic
    the woman pushing this law is a racist bigot and the state of Arizona does not back her.. people are picketing here for the rights of our LEGAL residents..
    when we say leave them alone we are not talking about ILLEGALS… we are talking about hispanics in general
    ps.. the law is going into effect.. the provisions that were made are to ensure that there is no racial profiling taking place accross our state..
    if you are ignorant to the facts you should keep your mouth shut

    Re: amandaperez – new screen name let's see if people can reply to me now.. hmmm

    this is my new screename no one could respond to the old one

    Perez, I have enjoyed reading your comments on your site and agree with most of your opionions; gay marriage rights, your humorous comments on celebrity but this is the 1st time I have felt the urge to comment. My family was formed through immigration. After a lot of heartache, my husband and I adopted our daughter from Korea. We had to wait a LONG time and TAKE OUR TURN. We had to show legally that we were both employed so she wouldn't become A BURDEN ON TAXPAYERS! We had to wait a long time when she finally came home to us to go through the process of becoming an American citizen because we had to WAIT OUR TURN! But she did wave her little American flag in a room filled with immigrants who TOOK THEIR TURNS AND DID IT THE RIGHT AND LEGAL WAY!

    I am a public high school teacher and normally have 38-45 students in a class period. Some years I am asked to teach a non-English class which has 6-12 students in it!!!! What a luxury! Kids here illegally for the most part (last year I had a student who was BORN HERE and still in high school DID NOT SPEAK ENGLISH!!!!) I love all students who walk in my doorway but what parent wouldn't love for their children to have the luxury of 6-12 kids in the class? The sad thing is that I would spend the majority of my time just getting the 6 students to do things like: sit down, come with a pencil, WANT TO LEARN!!!! I would prefer a huge 45 student class because our kids seem to APPRECIATE the FREE education we offer students in the USA and the kids with the free breakfast, lunch and small class sizes do not. I did have a Chinese student in the class last year w/ no English and he asked to be transferred to one of my large classes so the 6 spanish speaking kids wouldn't make fun of him for loving school.



  20. 220

    I think a HUGE factor in this problem is the bleeding heart liberal democrats who support the illegal idiots. We need to get these asshats out of office and get some more people like the governor of AZ in the federal government. We just might be able to save enough money to pay off China.



  21. 221

    Finally, I think it hypocritical that you negatively comment on Lindsay Lohan for being in jail- she DESERVES IT BECAUSE SHE BROKE THE LAW!!! However it is all right in your opinion that MILLIONS of illegal immigrants not have any consequences when they BREAK THE LAW!



  22. 222

    Re: rosebud_garden – what do you idiots not understand this law was violating the rights of LAW-ABIDING ARIZONA RESIDENTS LIKE MYSELF. the law will still go in effect.. no on is arguing for rights for the illegals..
    you're arguing the wrong info..
    seriously educate yourselves before you open your mouths
    I live in Arizona
    and ps.. Gimme Gimme
    she will not be reelected and the appeal will be denied

    223

    All Arizona has to do is agree with California, and considering California's sanctions against Arizona, I'm sure California welcomes Arizona sending the trainloads of illegal immigrants over to their ethically superior state.



  24. 224

    You guys are just a bunch of ignorant fools. I agree with Perez, what they are doing in AZ is racial profiling! I'm not saying that illegal immigration is right, but just pin pointing any Mexican that looks "Mexican" is wrong. How does a true Mexican look like anyways? I am Mexican, and I have fair skin and blonde hair…Do you think they will ask me for my legal status? I don't think so…although I DO live legally here. On top of that there are AMERICANS of Mexican Decent that do not look Caucasian at all! Should they be ask for legal status when they were BORN in the US? I don't think so either!

    I think other laws should be implemented to prevent illegal immigration.
    Again let me be clear…I DO NOT AGREE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. I am an International Student here in the US, I did all my paperwork right. So anybody who wants to migrate should do it through the right channels.



  25. 225

    You know what Perez…WHY DON'T YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP!!! Stick to writing about things you know. Like vapid celebrities, underage, jail bait boy pop stars, and that fucking ugly ass joke you call a singer, Lady GaGa. Keep your fucking nose out of politics. I've seen you in interviews, and you are not intelligent enough to spew forth your opinions on this matter. You also do not live in the fucking state of Arizona. I think ANYONE who doesn't live in that state SHOULD KEEP THEIR FUCKING MOUTHS SHUT!!! This is a serious, serious matter, and NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD WOULD TOLERATE THIS BULLSHIT! Go the fuck back to Mexico. WE DON'T WANT YOU HERE!



  26. 226

    I mean c'mon people…Do we really think Perez Hilton is intelligent enough to grasp the gravity of the situation here? I mean for shit's sake…his idols are a 16 year boy pop star, and a talentless skank…who in all honesty looks like an extremely unattractive transsexual. No offense to transsexuals! And, I mean his biggest goal is to become a judge on American Idol. He also draws dildos on people's faces and pee pee coming out of their paints. We're not dealing with someone with a full deck! Perez Hilton has arrested development and suffers from classic Narcissistic Personality Disorder. This guy is a fucking MESS! He's not a train wreck…HE'S A FUCKING PLANE WRECK!

    Re: heatherroses – no we don't heather.. you don't live here so how about you not speak for us.. our crazy bitch governor wants it because she has a hidden agenda.. once she is out of office this will be a non-issue



  29. 229

    People keep on saying that "ITS THE LAW" "ITS ILLEGAL TO BE IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY" "THEY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS" I couldn't agree more with you. BUT instead for focusing on illegal immigrants trying to make a living here in the US, we should direct our focus on ALL those coorporations and companies that are hiring them knowing they are illegal! maybe if companies stop BREAKING THE LAW and the government was more involve by holding accountable ALL these big coorporations for the exploitation of immigrants, immigrants would stop coming cause they would realize is not as easy as they thought or they would ligalize themselves cause they wouldn't have another option! I have a friend who went to this big company asking for a job. The 1st thing they asked him was if he was legal in this country, he said "yes". you know what they told him? "We can't hire you here, we only want illegal people!" you know the government knows about all these factories! but they decide to ignore it cause its cheap labor!! AND lets be realistic here! who are we kidding?! taking jobs away from us??!! how many unemployed citizens are ready to work the fields? pick up strawberries and vegetables under the heated sun???!



  30. 230

    COME ON! I understand it's THE LAW! I just believe they should be more equal and check everyone then! and they should start by fixing all American coorporations, businesses and factories who hire Immigrants knowing their status! They should start by stopping them from BREAKING THE LAW!



  31. 231

    We have to enforce those borders PEREZ. And if the Federal Gov't won't do it, then by all means the states need to protect themselves. Do you not understand that? Or should we just let everyone illegal in and pay for their shit, when they haven't earned it? NO!!!!



  32. 232

    HAHA I wonder who's gonna clean peoples houses, help seniors, help in the farms and build people's houses once all immigrants are completely out of the usa.

    People need to SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT ILLEGALS stealing jobs. They aren't stealing anything. There's websites out there that are offering the jobs that immigrants have up to americans, and so far ZERO people out of the billions, have applied for the jobs.



  33. 233

    Perez, I love your site…but you are wrong. Arizona put this law in place because they were fed up with illegals. It is our federal governments job to secure the border, and they are failing miserably. Illegals strain the system, they pay no taxes, receive free health care and a great many coming over are violent offenders who rape, murder, rob etc. The Mexican govt. supports and encourages their poor to sneak into the U.S. they even create brochures on how to do it, because they do not want those people because if they actually stayed in Mexico there would be an eventual uprising on Mexico's govt. to do something about their poor. But they would rather send them to the U.S. where the law-abiding tax-paying legal, and naturalized citizens of the United States must pay the price. Props to Arizona for taking action against illegal immigrants….if the feds would do their job and secure the border then Arizona wouldn't have to.



  34. 234

    I love your site Perez…but I am a bit upset to learn that you support illegal immigrants. I applaud what Arizona is doing to try and combat illegals. If the federal government would do it's job and secure our borders like its supposed to then Arizona wouldn't have to step up to the plate. Illegals are a huge drain on the economy. They don't pay taxes, they receive free health care and we legal and naturalized citizens of the U.S. must pay for them. Did you know that Mexico's second largest income comes from illegals here in the U.S. sending money back home to Mexico? Money that could be spent in the U.S. supporting our economy. Also, many of these illegals are violent offenders, they come and rape, murder, rob etc. And we Americans must pay the price. Illegals have no loyalty to the U.S. and have no desire to learn English and the culture of America. They have no desire to assimilate into our society. They are not like the immigrants from that passed through Ellis Island over a hundred years ago that had turned their backs on their country so that they could start new and become Americans. There is no room for two flags in the U.S. United we stand, but divided we fall, and with the increase in immigration with loyalties to other countries I wouldn't be surprised if Civil War is again in our future. Close the borders, round up the illegals and send them them home!!!



  35. 235

    BOO on illegal immigrants!!!
    Yeah Arizona!!!
    Illegals are destroying this country it is about time they do something to save it!!!

  36. KM411 says – reply to this


    236

    I really pray that you and the rest of America opens there eyes to the real issue. AZ isn't trying to pass this law because they're racist and hate Mexicans, they're passing it because Illegals (not all) are committing horrible crimes with drug/weapon smuggling and kidnapping. AZ only wants to protect its citizens because our government isn't showing any signs of helping. Please realize that. Honestly how would you feel if you lived by the border and your house got robbed of all your valuable possessions and your government wasn't taking any actions to resolve the issue, because that's what is going on.



  37. 237

    Re: KM411Re: JazzieKels – you people don't get it and obviously have not made yourselves familiar enough with this law or the judge's ruling to chime in.
    I live in Scottsdale Arizona which is in the Phoenix area and no one here wanted that law in place.. I work for a university and there were strikes here almost every day…
    the law, prior to the provisions, was a direct violation of the civil rights of the LEGAL citizens of this state. We are all for getting rid of the illegal immigrants but it's not like they walk around with a sign saying they are illegal.. there is no way for a police officer to distinguish if someone is legal or illegal just by looking at them.. therefore you cannot give the power to harass anyone who "looks" like they might be hispanic
    you can not violate the civil rights of our citizens to find illegal aliens
    the law is still going into effect just with some provisions that protect the rights that protect our LEGAL citizens from racial profiling and harassment. Those rights are in place to protect American Citizens and cannot be trampled on just becuase some overzealous governer wants to push her hidden agenda.
    If you don't live here you should stop responding because you have no idea what you are talking about.



  38. 238

    ps.. all you idiots that keep talking about what happens in other countries as punishment.. go move there then.. this is AMERICA and we have the bill of rights.. they MUST be obeyed to keep us from becoming like those other countries
