Arizona thanks Jan Brewer for some good old fashion common sense law making, I surely hope that in November and also 2012 we get more of these types of law makers, We need people that are tough and that are willing to speak up for what is RIGHT! for this country, I like many Americans are sick and tired of these touchy feally butterfly's and roses feel good liberals, They make me sick period.
Arizona is stepping up to the plate, passing tough laws that the feds wont, I appreciate that I do.
To remedy federal and Congressional inaction, Arizona has just enacted a great piece of immigration enforcement legislation (SB 1070). It is clear that Congress must follow Arizona's lead and begin to enforce our nation's laws.
Arizona's new piece of legislation, SB 1070, does even more to keep its residents safe. The legislation:
allows police officers to ask for proof of residency if they suspect an individual is in the country illegally
allows illegal aliens to be jailed and fined up to $2500
bans "soft" immigration policies at local police agencies that prevent officers from asking about a suspects immigration status
allows Arizonans to sue if they feel a government agency has adopted a policy that hinders the enforcement of illegal immigration laws
prohibits people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day-labor services on street corners
and makes it illegal for people to transport illegal aliens if the drivers of vehicles know their passengers are in the country illegally and if the transportation furthers their illegal presence in the country
Congress should be ashamed that states are being forced to enforce federal law because the federal government doesn't have the backbone to do the job. Please observe the will of the American people and make sure our immigration laws are enforced!
