THIS SECTION SHALL BE IMPLEMENTED IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH FEDERAL LAWS REGULATING IMMIGRATION, PROTECTING THE CIVIL RIGHTS OF ALL PERSONS AND RESPECTING THE PRIVILEGES AND IMMUNITIES OF UNITED STATES CITIZENS.~S.B. 1070, page 2.
The left’s outrage and the protests against Arizona’s S.B. 1070 would be toast immediately if they read the bill, but as we know, the left won’t-or can’t- read and just pulls out the race card immediately. Further, each section of the bill states that it conforms with federal law so of course Obama is all hat and no cattle. Holder can’t even put his boots on. They will have to create something out of whole cloth to make Arizona’s efforts “illegal”.
Arizona Governor Janet Brewer has exercised her state’s authority to live by the Constitution for the United States and Arizona’s constitution. Exercising the states inherent authority, she took action to protect her state. I call that leading and constitutional governance by example.
- Makes it illegal in the State of Arizona to setup sanctuary cities by conforming to federal law (Mesa and Chandler are already considered sanctuary cities; this would make it illegal for elected officials of those cities to continue to allow their cities to act as sanctuary cities). (Page 2, 11-1051)
- Seeks to reduce drug trafficking by illegal aliens by increasing the penalties for being here illegal if the person is trafficking drugs. (Page 3, 13-1509)
- Adds to the existing legislation prohibiting the employment of illegal aliens by making it in essence illegal to hire a “day worker” by stating that it is illegal to transport an illegal alien from one location to a job site. This amendment further states that you must be impeding traffic when you commit this act in order for there to be probable cause to pull you over and then determine if the person you are contracting for labor is here legally. There is also a provision in this section to protect against entrapment. (Page 5, 13-2929)
- Adds to existing legislation regarding unlawful human trafficking of illegal aliens. This portion of the legislation states that it is already a misdemeanor to aid an illegal alien in being in the state illegally; however, this section includes making it a class 6 felony to participate in the trafficking of 10 or more illegal aliens. (Page 6, 13-2929)
Author K.J. Kaufman asks the simple questions in Constitutional Government:
Does any of the above sound unreasonable to you? Does any of the above sound like it is going to result in racial profiling? In every instance of the legislation, probable cause of some sort of violation such as a traffic violation, or as a public official failing to enforce existing law must be adhered to before any of this new legislation’s provisions can be enforced. Does any of the above sound like it is going to impact your civil rights?
What’s Obama’s Anger Really About?
Amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants was a planned cornerstone of Obama’s efforts to win more and permanent ‘democratic’ voters. This had to be accomplished by the end of May to have any influence on the November elections. I think Arizona’s action will delay that plan in part because it highlights the failure of the federal government to enforce the law. Why have amnesty when it may not be needed if the federal government would do its job? Plus, if the states don’t accept amnesty, Obama can try but will fail by further dividing the country and fully destroying the socialist democrats. Obama seems to have made the socialist democrats the ‘useful idiots’ to be thrown under the bus to achieve his goals.
With Arizona’s actions on illegal immigration, essentially enforcing federal law, the focus on the danger of illegal immigrant invasion and the federal government’s failure has been increased. In addition, the strategic delay in implementation of the law until August prevents Obama from seeking an ’emergency stay’ in federal court–although he will still try–because nothing has happened yet. The consistency of the Arizona law with federal law will make it difficult for the administration to make a case that it is illegal.
The increased pressure on Bill Richardson will be interesting…his loyalty is to both countries, but he will not act because he is Obama’s boy. Governor Perry has already called out the National Guard. So, political problems are coming for Obama and immigration.
And of course, he has got to be running scared, as he is an illegal immigrant, and is not a natural born citizen! 😆 I am laughing really hard here, because he expected America to look the other way about his citizenship and ignore his criminal behavior, and calls that
…basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans…
So now that one State has just said ‘no’, Obama can’t stand it. Yes, and the eligibility makes it doubly excruciating. Oops, another state introduces an eligibility bill, and at least one politician feels that Arizona’s eligibility bill doesn’t go far enough.
Can you hear the steel doors beginning to close? 🙂
