Arizona's Illegal Immigrant Laws Going To Supreme Court

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik

Arizona has cracked down on illegal immigrants yet again and the Obama administration is not happy.

This seems familiar

It's becoming such a big deal that the Supreme Court is going to have to mediate.

The arguments will mainly focus on whether states can make their own immigration laws to deal with the estimated over 11 million illegal immigrants or if it's solely the federal government's jurisdiction.

A Sheriff in Cochise County, Arizona, which shares an 83.5-mile border with Mexico, said:

"If the federal government had been doing and would continue to do its job in securing the border here in southern Arizona, this would not be an issue. Unfortunately, they failed to do that so Arizona stepped up and said, 'We want to be partners. Here’s a role we think we can play.'"

The big problem the federal government has are four parts of the law. These parts would require police to question a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws, require all immigrants to carry immigration registration papers, make it a criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek or hold a job and allow police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without warrants.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said:

"It blurs what used to be a very bright line, that you can’t stop someone and ask for papers based just on how they look.

But the impact is on citizens as much as immigrants. It’s a dragnet approach that sweeps up law-abiding American citizens based on the color of their skin or ethnic origins."

These laws basically sound like they are giving police the right to discriminate.

Actually, less the right and more requiring them to discriminate.

This is all leading down a dark path. We're glad the Supreme Court will be intervening.

    its racist to have a border. its racist to have a country. since we have a border, we must hate mexicans. if we want to enforce the laws on the books were hateful racists. nuff said. pull the lever for no border no language no culture…ie democrat…and say goodbye to your country

    People need to STOP breaking the laws and we wouldn't have a problem. I commend Arizona for taking a stand against this, and as a nation, we need to support our OWN citizens first and stop allowing illegals a free pass. We're on the verge of collapse and this boat can't support anymore people.

    Re: bobo99Re: bobo99Re: bobo99 – Perhaps you should move to Mexico and make the same argument against them?

    Team Arizona! Screw all those illegals. Send them ALL packing. It's time to take our country back. Put soldiers on the border and the problems is solved. Simple as that.

    Also, it's sad to see how the American government manipulates everyone. We are all suffering economically due to the U.S gov's decisions. There is a handful of people in the upper angle of the hierarchy who make all the decisions for us, they control all of the money. So being as smart as they are, they make it seem like we should be against one another. They use immigrants as a scapegoat so we cannot stand up against them. Open your eyes. Immigrants make greater contributions to the economy because they pay taxes (shock they do? Yes) but receive no social services in return. Also, how do we define citizenship? What actions do you take in your life that makes you more American?

    Although I agree it wouldn't be fair to anyone else who gets stopped bc they LOOK like an Illegal Immigrant, you cannot seriously believe we should just open up the border and let people in, regardless of their race or ethnic origin. It is not whats best for this country. The Federal Gov AND the Mexican gov need to BOTH step up their games. The Federal Gov needs to put their damn foot down, do something about Immigration, maybe some immigration reform…no I'm not saying allow them to just come and stay but maybe make it a bit easier, do some maintenance on the laws and the Mexican Gov needs to work on continuing fixing their country and stop ENCOURAGING illegal immigration and making all of these crazy demands to us while having strict immigration laws themselves.

    Perez u are one ignorant flaming dumbass. The Govt needs to stay the fuck out of the states business. Plain and simple. It's none of their fucking business what the state does you idiot. If u don't like it move the fuck out of Arizona. Oh, you don't live there? Then keep your dick sucking lips shut tight about politics since you are either a commie bastard or just a another queer with NO clue that talks too much

    Of course the Obama admin isn't happy. Their a band of idiots. It's not racist to enforce laws. People whine about profiling but last I heard MEXICANS come from MEXICO. DUH! I can understand harassing someone who speaks perfect English but most of these fuckers don't even bother to learn our National language and get offended when we don't speak theirs. A good portion of people come over and have babies and get on welfare. I say send them back. It may be harsh to say these things but its true. Our country can't afford the people who are citizens let alone fit the bill for the thousands that run across the boarder each day. You constantly see Mexicans displaying their Mexican flag proudly, well if you are so proud of your Country (as most people are no matter what Country you are from) stay there. Please.

    why is the ACLU getting involved? these illegals aren't American. They are here illegally and that is a crime. and they should be sought out and arrested. Just like any other organization of criminals. American tax payers already carry the burden of helping American families who can't make ends meet and now we're supposed to help people who snuck into our country without proper and due process? People who are against these immigration laws are they same people who are destroying America from the inside.

    You want to be an American? Earn it. I'd be happy to show proof of citizenship if I got pulled over. It's standard to ask for identification.

    I live in NC and wish our legislature would crack down on illegals in the same way. I'm sick and tired of working to pay massive amounts of taxes in order to financially support their anchor babies. Every time I'm in the supermarket I get behind a Mexican with their cart spilling over as they whip out their EBT card or WIC check…they then go out in the parking lot and load up their tricked out Hummer or Cadillac Escalade…all on my dime!!!!!! This country is turning into the same sewer as Mexico and illegals will be the downfall of our society.

    They're not called illegal immigrants because they're allowed to be in the country…

    Re: Shelah – Remembering the people that came in the Mayflower… A nice bunch of illegal immegrants (this part of the word was already inhabited, you know).



  14. 14

    It's time to start building camps and rounding all these undesirables up.



  15. 15

    You truly are are moron Mario. Arizona hasn't done anything again. This is the same law (1070) that was passed last year. Also, the Supreme Court doesn't mediate shit. They rule whether a law is constitutional.



  16. 16

    The primary minority in Arizona are Mexicans and Arizona's racist laws continue to further isolate minorities. People need to stand against injustice. We are heading backwards with laws like these. America needs to realize these are hard working people who just need a job and shelter from drug-torn parts of Mexico. Immigration reform needs to occur so people will stop being discriminated against.



  17. 17

    Also, immigrants pay taxes and do not get any money back (because of Governor Brewer's law in AZ) so those of you who say "I pay taxes for these people"in actually undocumented immigrants are paying taxes for you and do not get any refunds in return.



  18. 18

    Read the polls, dude…The majority of voters support AZ for their stance against illegal immigration.

    You are so clueless when it comes to politics its a joke.

    The Supreme Court will support AZ, for the federal govt. has failed to enforce our immigration laws. SB1070 mirrors federal law, which doesn't prempt federal law. The Court will not give the federal govt. permission to NOT enforce it's own laws.

    If these illegal citizens of Arizona did not hire people from Mexico they would not come here. They hire them for low wages, exploit them and now they are using them for political purposes. That is why the right wing Republicans are losing the Hispanic vote.

    It does not say anything about "race" and the ANERICAN Civil Liberties Union needs to but out UNTIL some ones rights(guaranteed by law) are violated meaning if they are here illegally they haven't any legal rights to be here! And therefore need NO representation from the ACLU. Profiling yes, butonly if they are stopped for other infractions of Arizon and US LAWS!
