    Ariz. governor signs immigration enforcement bill

    Excerpted from “Ariz. governor signs immigration enforcement bill” By PAUL DAVENPORT and JONATHAN J. COOPER, Associated Press, 20 minutes ago
    Arizona's tough immigration enforcement bill will become law despite being criticized by President Obama as 'misguided."

    Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill into law on live television on Friday. It takes effect in 90 days after the current legislative sessions in the next several weeks.

    Brewer says the law "protects every Arizona citizen."

    The sweeping legislation makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It would also require local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegally.

    Obama said in Washington the measure could violate people's civil rights and said he's instructed the Justice Department to see if it is legal. …
    Wow! Just, wow! This bill is a colossal error.

    Well, if the Democrats get a pass for the healthcare turd then Az. gets a pass on this IMO. It's a bad law but "something needed to be done", yall remember that right?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Early Arizonan reaction to the bill signing is dismay and vows to take the state to court.

    Excerpted from “Arizona governor signs immigration law; foes promise fight” by Alia Beard Rau, The Arizona Republic, Apr. 23, 2010 01:47 PM
    Hispanic leaders addressing the hundreds of protesters at the Capitol immediately vowed to wage a legal fight. …

    … [T]he anti-bill protesters began shouting in unison, "Shame on You! Shame on You!"

    A handful of teenage girls was seen openly weeping after it was announced that Brewer had signed the bill. …

    Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox said afterwards that the American Civil Liberties Union and the Mexican-American Defense Fund have already promised to fight implementation of the law.

    "This is only the first step of a long battle, and I don't lose,'" Wilcox said.

    She also chastized Brewer, calling her cold-hearted.

    "When the president says this is wrong, it's a shame she put herself above him,'' Wilcox said. …

    You can't blame Arizona at all on this. I don't see the problem with it. If you are here illegally, what is wrong with a state picking up the slack for the federal government? After all, the costs for medical care, housing, crime, and public education associated with those that come here illegally is primarily born by the states, so why not let the states help enforce immigration law?

    I am left of center on a lot of issues. But the fact is, we can't afford to provide education and healthcare for the kids of every illegal that makes it across the Sonora Desert.

    From what I understand about the bill I support it. Why not have a law to enforce laws? Arizona made a smart decision in passing this legislation. Crack down on illegal immigration and charge them with their crimes.

    Most voting Arizonans want the Mexicans to go home....so she didn't have much choice but to sign in. She would never retain office any other way.

    I believe we will see massive displays of direct action against this law in the form of demonstrators refusing to hand over their papers. There will be boycotts and conferences and conventions will be canceled. This will be 1990 all over again.
