    Re: Judge blocks part of controversial Arizona immigration law

    I'm pretty sure there is a better way to go about this, The republicans pushing for this know this is gonna get turned down. They are just appealing to their constituents, Republicans will never be able to win the Latino vote so why not aggressively push this and win over some people on the fence. Liberals in turn are often putting a spin on it just saying it's "Racist". I'd like to see the Democrats in office including Obama explore better ways of handling illegal immigration which is obviously not happening.

    I don't think anybody is also mentioning just how costly something like this would be, I mean incarcerating people is expensive and shouldn't Police officers have more important things to do rather than bring in Jorge because he doesn't have his papers? Illegal Immigration isn't going to stop but there are ways to curb the violence and cut the amount of people coming over. Legalizing all drugs would really take a bulk of violent illegals out of the picture but thats for a different discussion.

    Article One, Section 8
    To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization
    Arizona can act within what federal law permits but this law goes beyond what federal law permits this, and thus it will be struck down.

    Re: Judge blocks part of controversial Arizona immigration law

    Lets ask this: If AZ law enforcement can't check to see who is legal, then who can? What government agency is authorized to "check".. How many of them do we have? How often, and under what circumstances do they "check" legal status?

    Don't you all see what a mess this is?

    If the Arizona police want to check the citizenship of people they arrest then great. But they should check everybody they arrest, not just people with "reasonable suspicion" of being illegal.

    Absolutely not. If you cooperate with the cop, have a legal driver's license and registration for the car, there is no reason for the cop to have reasonable suspicion to inquire your status...

    This is a travesty of justice. I wonder what Obama promised her.
    And you would expect anything different from a Clinton appointee?

    LEOs don't check everyone for a potential offense against the law, only people they have a "reasonable suspicion" of doing so. Why should this be any different?

    That is true but I think the poster was saying that if the drunk was Mexican then the officer was racist in his arrest.

    Why else would he have brought up the drunks country of origin?

    I wonder how the legal mexicans feel about this.
    Traffic laws in Compton California are racist just like some people say this law is only because the police pull over more blacks than whites.

    It can't have anything to do with the fact that there are more blacks driving in Compton than whites.
