Using the decidily liberal New York Times as the only scource can lead to a skewed view!!http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/A-carefully-crafted-immigration-law-in-Arizona-92136104.html
A few points I would like to make. The Arizona House and senate passed the bill after very intnese debate.
So first off lets stop blaming the governor completely!
Also a majority of Arizona VOTERS support the bill.
450,000 illegal aliens out of a population of 6.5 million, that is about 1 in 14 people in the state are illegal...ILLEGAL!!
Illegal aliens cannot own poperty so no poperty taxs, no school tasxs yet they send the children to schools and use the rescources that taxs pay for.
Arizona has a state income tax, which means that nearly 7% of the people that Do not pay taxs.
All of this has lead the VOTERS of the state to react, If this law needs to be repealed then the Illegal aliens should vote against it...oh wait they CAN'T VOTE!
I Vote every election so I have to ask How many of you do as well?? I take pride in the rights we have and how givinga people we are. But frankly Illegal is just that Illegal... and as for limiting the immigration numbers there are reasons for that.
A lot of you seem to misunderstand the full content of the law!!
"For any lawful contact
made by a law enforcement official or a law enforcement agency…where reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States, a reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person…""That means the officer is already engaged in some detention of an individual because he's violated some other law,"
says Kris Kobach, a University of Missouri Kansas City Law School professor who helped draft the measure. "The most likely context where this law would come into play is a traffic stop."
So police officer stops a car for a traffic voliation and asks for some id, the driver does not have any nor does anyone else in the car....weellll that would seem to me to reason to check on thier status!! But I am just a blonde!!
