Thanks for posting the bill. I've posted it on my blog and cross-linked to you. http://rightg.blogspot.com/2010/04/arizona-immigration-bill.html

Frankly, I don't have a problem with the bill. Arizona is a state in a democratic republic and the bill was written with the approval of 70% of Arizona voters. Power to them.

Right-on Right Girl!

All they're trying to do is force the Feds to do their job... or they'll handle it themselves. It's Arizonans homes, lives, businesses, and families that are enduring this... not the Dear Leader, who is he to attack them like this.

Sheriff Joe handles Al Sharpton pretty well on this topic... the clip's on Moonbattery today.

I am with you on this. I did a post on AB1070 today as well.

The bill is against racial profiling but the liberal left activists, Obama and the Lapdog Media say it is profiling. The idiots on the left make up lies whenever they want to demonize anything, regardless of the truth. I am so damned upset about these mobsters in our Government doing their best to destroy our country, I am fit to be tied! If there intention is to enrage the fine upstanding citizens of this country they are doing a very good job! As always keep up the great work my friend! We must Remember in November! I sure will!

Bravo! I'd like to think posting this law would calm the hysteria and hyperbole from illegal immigration supporters everywhere, but they aren't interested in reading the bill anyway.

I'll be linking to you tomorrow.

All the best,

That was only 19 pages, perhaps that's why the lefties despise it so. No wait, that's not really it, it's the fact that a state chooses not to bend over and accept a fascist policy from the left.

Nothing upsets lefties like those who won't bend to their will.

I HAVE BEEN A RESIDENT OF THE GREAT STATE OF ARIZONA SINCE 1976. I am absolutely amazed at everyone that is protesting the Arizona Immigration SB 1070 Law.

I was taught years ago when growing up that yes, we all have a right to protest things that we disagree with, however we must do it peacefully and lawfully.

I taught my children as they were growing up that there is no such thing as being racist or prejudice. We all breath the same air and we all bleed the same color blood and as far as our skin colors, they are just a difference in our pigmentation.

To carry this forward into all of the Illegal Immigrants protests, this law begins with "ILLEGAL" Illegal meaning not following the laws of our country. Immigrants are people that want for the most part a better life, and are willing to risk what it takes to either become a legal citizen of the United States of America, or "ILLEGALLY" enter this country.

Since when do those of Illegal character decide that they will do all it takes to disrupt our country and fight for their rights to be able to roam our streets "ILLEGALLY"?

FYI: I do not believe in racial profiling, nor do I believe in law enforcement over abusing their power and authority. I do however believe that each time a law enforcement officer hits our streets in Arizona they take the risk of not returning home..

What I do believe is, since the Federal Government to date hasn't done all it takes to keep our borders safe, then passing this law, whether you agree or disagree is getting the attention we need to slow down the numbers of ILLEGALS entering our country daily and nightly by way of Everyone across our state and Washington DC keeping their eyes on the Great State of Arizona.

In closing, do you have any idea how many law enforcement officers and citizens and children have either lost their lives at the hands of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS or been seriously hurt.

If our Federal Government won't do their job to protect us, then Thanks to the State of Arizona for at least making an effort to attempt to do something to protect us.

I have just read the bill. There is noting in this bill that really isn't reasonable.

Stopping on the roadway to hire a worker. Get off the road and don't block traffic. It's dangerous.

Not hiring undocuminted workers. What is wrong with that.

Not taking government money while having undocumented workers.

I have seen nothing about "Yov must have your papers" (in german) or stopping cars at will.

Jamie said...

30% of Arizona's citizens are Hispanic. When you think of illegal immigration you think of what? Hispanics, Mexicans, right? So this law is written in response specifically to the illegal immigration of Hispanics. This law justifies a police officer from stopping any one of those 30% of citizens. Because they are Hispanic, there are already grounds for suspicion that they are illegal immigrants. This can cause fear in these law abiding citizens that they will be harassed by the police. Protect you from whom? The Mexican who serves you food in the restaurant. The Cuban who hauls your garbage away. Just because you are white and have all the privileges don't pick on those that actually work hard to better the lives of their families.

Reaganite Republican said...

Jamie, you need to read the law perhaps (a link to the full text is above)- the police can ONLY ask for immigration papers if the person is stopped and/or detained for breaking ANOTHER law like speeding, robbery, or whatever- they're not allowed to approach anyone on the basis of just a suspicion- you are misinformed sir, they simply cannot do that.

And the law that requires them to carry their papers has been on the books for 70 yrs... this is nothing new. I lived in Europe as an expat and you ALWAYS need your passport and papers with you, it's just common sense.

The larger issue is if we are going to enforce the law or not- if we don't like them, then change the legislation but as long as there are laws they need to be enforced, and that includes border security... period. Otherwise, anarchy is the only likely long-term outcome.

And what about the legal immigrants who waited years to get citizenship? Are they losers for following the law?

You are also very, very off with the totally unecessary "white, with all the privileges"... my family background is poor, Polish and Irish factory workers who immigrated LEGALLY, dude.

No privileged background here... we earned everything we got, learned English, and followed the law... sorry to say, but many of today's immigrants would do well to learn from our example.

I have read the law. A Hispanic who has committed a felony can be stopped on just a suspicion if the police officer feels that driving his/her family to the grocery store is harboring and transporting aliens, even if he/she did not commit an offense at that time.

And the problem is?? If you are in this country legally, there is no problem- is there!

When was it that this great country of ours lost its proverbial back bone? It is GREAT to see that Arizona has not lost theirs....BRAVO!!

I read the Arizona Immigration Law SB 1070 2010. I am an US Citizen Hispanic person. I should have the same rights than any other US Citizen. But if I happen to travel through Arizona and fail to see a sign and am detained by the police, according to this law, if the police ask me for my citizenship I am obligated to present proof of it. Is it fair? Why I need to travel in my own country carrying an US Passport while a white or black US citizen don’t, where is fairness here?

I applaud Arizona for standing up for Americans! Political correctness has gotten way out of hand in this country preventing us from taking control of our country and standing up for its LEGAL citizens. It is inspiring to see that Arizona leaders and citizens have the backbone to stand up against limo liberals and do what is right for this country! By the way, I came to this country as a LEGAL immigrant through legal means (not amnesty).

How do I fax, email or add my vote of support for this bill? I am inspired by the people of Arizona!

Arizona borders Mexico, so yes I think of immigrants coming into Arizona as most likely being hispanic. Oh no Arizona passed a law making illegal immigration illegal! And no, they are not just taking out our garbage and serving us food.
According to the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI:

83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal immigrants.

86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal immigrants.

75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal immigrants.
24.9% of all inmates in California detention centers are illegals.

40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are illegals.

48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are illegals.

29% of convicted felons in our state and federal prisons are illegal immigrants, costing taxpayers $1.6 billion annually.

53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegals.

Half of all gang members in Los Angeles are illegals.

71% of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were stolen by illegal immigrants.

47% of cited/stopped drivers in California have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 47%, 92% are illegals.

63% of cited/stopped drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 63%, 97% are illegals.

66% of cited/stopped drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66%, 98% are illegals.

97.2% of all costs incurred from the birth of babies to illegal immigrants falls not to their parents but to American taxpayers.

Some legal immigrants are just as shocked at the opposition to this as I am: http://fwix.com/tucson/share/7c7b0f0a49/legal_immigrant_gabriela_saucedo_slams_opposition_to_arizona_illegal_immigration_law

Mike's America said...

We should all print out a copy of the bill and mail them to Atty. General Eric Holder who admits he hasn't read the bill or even been briefed on it yet has felt free to pontificate on it.

Reaganite Republican said...

He doesn't need to read it, Mike- his current job is to obey diktats from Dear Leader... and nothing he says, knows, or thinks is going to change we he will be required to do.

And Holder himself is an opportunistic, race-baiting POS in the same mold as Obama, anyway- all they see in Arizonans protecting themselves is a challenge to their authority... and 30M new voters for 2012.

If Santa Ana charged into TX and took El Paso, they'd find a way to excuse it away at this point... then hector Texans for fighting back.

Boycott California! Everyone who plans on traveling to California should change their plans and go to Arizona. If you are planning a conference in San Francisco or LA change it to a city in Arizona like Phoenix or Tuscon.

Write letters to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig urging him to keep the 2011 All-Star game in Arizona.

Jamie,Boo hoo!!I.C.E.has the right to do the same thing,so now do the Police.If they are illegal they need to go home.If they are legal then Welcome.So sick and tire of hearing people boo hooing about these people that broke the law to get here.Then I get tire of arresting them for example:DUI,Driving W/O Lic.,No Insurance,Domestic Abuse,Drugs,Etc.The list goes on and on.

The Worst is the DUI,and a majority of the time it ends up with fatalities.Then there's the gangs and the shootings.

Bottom line I see the effects of illegal immigration in my area everyday,people robbed,women that have been raped, families that have been killed by Drunk drivers.All by Illegal aliens.Could all these crimes been committed to these people by other than illegals?Yes,but THEY WEREN'T!!!

I'm not saying we don't get our share of crime from citizens of the U.S.,but what I am saying is we don't need the added crime from another country we have enough of our own to deal with.

NO response needed.I all ready know where you stand and I'm not going to change your mind and I'm not here to try.

Also just to put aside any thoughts of profiling or racism in my line of work"which I'm sure by now you've put 2n2 together".My wife is Hispanic.

Before I make my comment I would like to point out that I am Puerto Rican and that three of my boys are either married or engaged to women from El Salvador, Mexico or Guatemala.

That being said, I believe that an illegal alien from ANY country is sucking the blood from this country. It is NOT that difficult to come to this country legally. With its open-door-policy, the United States legally permits more immigrants than ALL the other counties combined.

If you are here illegally you should be arrested and sent back to your country of origin, wherever that may be. By using the resources of this country illegally you are, in effect, stealing from us. Come here legally and we will embrace you! Come illegally and we will arrest you!

By the way, as an American citizen, when I have traveled to other countries (Germany, England, France, the Middle East and several others) I have ALWAYS been required to carry my passport and visa. Period…no excuses!

Let me get this straight..... If you are driving a vehicle and get stopped by the police anywhere in this country - you have to show a valid identification - also know as a drivers liscense... and this is a problem in Arizona why? Oh - yes - I forgot - we must protect the illegals in this country so the Obamanation can get a law passed to make everything warm and fuzzy for them and provide amnesty and the right to vote - the only way the current El Presedente will get re-elected....

My, my, my… the truth is that ignorance is the death of a nation! I don’t know who wrote the paragraph about the status quo of Puerto Rico but based on its tone it certainly sounds he/she doesn’t like Puerto Ricans to much. Let me inform you that Puerto Ricans have fought in every military engagement of the United States including the American Revolutionary War. We have earned our right to be American Citizens. We poor Hispanic people had 32 established settlements in North America BEFORE the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock. Not only were we colonizing this country 500 years before the first of the 13 colonies was established but when the original colonists arrived, we were instrumental in teaching them how to get alone with the American Indians. By the way, you should also know that free black men and women were also instrumental in helping the “May Flower People” learn how to harvest the land. So before you so belligerently try to attack one of you fellowmen (whether you like it or not) please… get an education it seems to me that you need it.

Reaganite Republican said...

Anon, I think what you were trying to say is that "I'm Hispanic, so don't come at me with the Nazi bit" when you came out in support of SB1070... correct?

It was clear to me you weren't calling yourself an immigrant, per se, as PR is a US territory... and God knows what that guy was trying to say, don't let it bother you... could just be a Dem troll trying to make GOPers look like some unsavory types... they do that here from time to time. I'd say we are very, very much in agreement on this bill, sir

Thank You.

True I am not an immigrant but like I said three of my boys are either married or engaged in immigrant women. I believe this is the best country in the world and for the past generations at least one male of our very large extended family has served with honor in World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Panama, and Iraq. Our open door policy has been abused to the extreme. And, our country is being ravaged by swarms of illegal immigrants most of which all they do, is take, take, take and give back nothing.

I understand the language and live in the Barrio in NYC. I don’t look Hispanic because I our family line come from Northern Spain. Therefore I get to hear many things at the medical wards and several social services offices spoken by people that don’t think I fully understand what they are saying.

The verdict of it all! They come for Uncle Sam’s free money, education, health service and another handout they can get. Further tons of them boast that they don’t even pay taxes! This burns me up!

I hope every state of the Union follows Arizona’s initiative.

By the way… My oldest son was the victim of an illegal alien DUI, without a license and who fled the scene that crashed into his stationary car and almost killed him. He has been in physical therapy for a year. What did the guy do? Before anyone could grab him he ran back to his home in México away from American Justice.

Reaganite Republican said...

You're more qualified than most to speak on this subject, and the issue touches you personally on a number of levels- I value your input here, thank you sir

This country welcomes newcomers like no other... but there's a limit to everything, and responsibilities expected from these guests should not be dismissed as some sort of xenophobia- it's just common sense, Teddy Roosevelt warned us about this...

Memo said...

The problem with the law isn't that it targets illegal aliens. That is fine. They are illegal. The problem is that it targets anyone who "might" be an illegal alien. In Arizona that means mostly people of Hispanic origin. My parents canceled an extended trip to Arizona, because they are afraid of being detained. They are both US Citizens. Dad works for local gov and mom worked for federal. Unfortunately, they are "visibly" Hispanic and therefore subject to scrutiny and possible detainment for not carrying around their FEDERAL identification papers. If this law asked every citizen and visitor to Arizona to carry their FEDERAL id then I would see no problem. And I completely understand the frustrations of a community with a high percentage of illegal aliens - I grew up in Miami. But as the law stands, it unfairly targets Hispanics for what is considered a Federal responsibility. If Arizona wishes to change this then do the work. Create a new system of State Immigration Law. Otherwise, ask EVERY citizen and visitor for their papers. Please remember that the states of the union are sovereign, so either uphold the law of the Union or create your own system. I for one don't see myself asking for a visa to visit Arizona.

I hope my comments have shed light on why some of us who have read the law still oppose it.
