The governor abdicated her responsibility to protect the human rights of every individual in Arizona?
John Morton, who heads U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says that they will not support racist Arizona Law He needs to be doing exactly what he is doing; his job. He is there to enforce federal immigration law; not placate the Bull Connors of Arizona in their attempt to turn all undocumented aliens into criminals. They are not. It is not a federal crime to be here without authorization. Look it up. The wonderful people of Arizona enacted this law making it a STATE crime to be in Arizona in violation of the federal immigration laws. Let the good people or Arizona pay to arrest, detain, prosecute and house in state prisons these horrible people who simply entered our country. They have no right to dictate to the federal authorities how to enforce federal law. Hell, to anyone with any semblence of intelligence and understanding of Constutitional law, it is clear that the state has not authority under the Constitution to pass any laws that touch upon illegal immigration. It is impossible to round up all undocumented aliens and remove them to their country of origin. It would be a profound waste of resources, to. Why not have the police arrest people who commit crimes? If they happen to be here without authority, then they get deported. Chasing down the law abiding undocumented is diverting resources from the effort to stem the tide of drugs pouring into the country; drugs drawn here by the insatiable appetite of Americans. Every law abiding undocumented alien that is hunted down by the police in Arizona means that somewhere else in that state a criminal, native born or illegal, is still free.I find it shocking that many didn't learn from the original flawed language law they supported that left egg on their faces when Arizona had to change the wording to try and make it legal after they passed it. It seems to me that everyone should think about it before they blindly support something they do not even know is legal...particularly because it impacts other Americans. the fact is the arizona law is illegal and the federal government is not going to be a party to an illegal law. By picking up the illegals taken by the arizona law ..sounds good! We all know we have a border problem so it takes no brains to recognise something must be done. Some want a solution and they don't care if it is legal or not. The rest want a legal solution and are content to establish that it is legal before accepting a blue eye/green eye law that impacts other Americans. I am of the last group. No way I want to look as foolish as those who accepted Arizona's first flawed law. I am content to wait until the courts make the call rather than look like a confident There are hundred of stupid laws still on the books.. remeber this law In Arizona: It is illegal for men and women over the age of 18 to have less than one missing tooth visible when smiling There was a day when the law did not allow women to vote, allowed one human being toown another and when United States citizens of Japanese descent were rounded up and placed ininternment camps and None of those laws were right.. There is a big difference between controlling the nation's border and discriminating by skin color, and Arizona's refusal to distinguish between the two undermines this nation's constitutional commitment to fairness and equality. The measure Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law last week gives police in Arizona broad powers to stop and arrest anyone not carrying proof that they are legally in the United States. The law sanctions ethnic profiling, and it underscores the need for a reasonable national policy on immigration. With nearly 500,000 undocumented immigrants, Arizona's experience illustrates both a real problem and the wrong way to try to reverse the flood along the border. Federal policy should include effective border control and a reasonable path for illegal residents to gain legal residency. A new report by the Census Bureau underscores how much foreign-born residents contribute to this nation. The number of foreign-born residents in the United States with doctoral degrees jumped by a third in the past five years. Immigrants now hold one of every four doctorates in the nation. A clear majority have become naturalized citizens, a turnaround from 2005. This nation continues to be the land of opportunity. Discriminatory responses like Arizona's to a national problem cannot be allowed to whittle away those values. The overwhelming majority of Mexicans and others who come here are not criminals. Most are just desperate for honest work I'm in opposition to this law not because it is a violation of human and civil rights alone ...It goes against all human dignity, against the principles of most Americans I know The governor abdicated her responsibility to protect the human rights of every individual in Arizona...not just those who dont look like her no matter what we do there will still be problems with illegal immigration, but there are ways to make the situation better and less dangerous, passing laws like Arizonas new law that make things more dangerous is not the answer to the problem. Let’s think about it for a second. Being an illegal immigrant, as you so wisely pointed out, is a crime. If you reasonably suspect someone of being an illegal immigrant, you suspect them of a committing a crime and can stop them. We’re back to what constitutes reasonable suspicion, and we’re back to racial profiling As opposed to removing every single illegal immigrant, which is completely unrealistic, why don’t we present a path to citizenship and focus on securing the borders What is done to the weakest in our society ought to be a measure of that society. These are measures of repression. These are wedge strategy tactics. Accept the mere notion that it might be reasonable for Somali refugees, or paedophiles, then the principle that the state hasn’t a grossly intrusive entitlement over us is surrendered. We will end up as slaves. Meat robots if you like.

We do need to treat the Mexicans in the way of their country . Imprison them an throw them in a shit hole exactly like their country does. Why cant the miserable people from all the 3rd worlds just improve own country? They say they Like to work. Example Australia started with a bunch of white crooks.
