    Sheriff Dever from Cochise County Arizona, has been enforcing the US Immigration law for 30 years. He has been Sheriff for 15 years and his department has been enforcing the US law. His department is well trained from day one on how to determine probable cause. The "question" of legality status is the last thing the asks. Only after the original infraction is determined and if and only if he or she determines there is a high probability of the suspect of being in the US illegally does the deputy question the suspect about their citizenship and legality in America. The Arizona law has been in practice for decades. There have been nearly zero complaints regarding any racial profiling or bias.

    So you 20% who support open borders and amnesty, get over it and find something else to whine about.

    I do hope there is a some careful reading of the thread authors post, if someone does they will notice this is not new for the Maricopa County Sheriff or invented. As has been rightly pointed out, across the nation and here in Arizona, state and local law enforecement have been working with Federal officials for many years in immigration matters. I have posted this all over in this debate and will mention it here only because of the noise level aimed at Arizona. ICE has a program called "Secure Communities" in which they share information about Illegal Aliens in a " NATIONAL DATABASE" with state and local law enforcement on criminal illegal aliens. If no one is aware by now, to enter the United States without proper documentation and at a non-designated port of entry is a Federal crime no different than any other federal crime. The only difference is it is never prosecuted. So when our Sheriff say's he will enforce the law, I frankly am not surprised. On a side note, Phoenix was before this ruling a so called " sanctuary city" it remains to be seen how the mayor of Phoenix will comply with the new law now that those are not allowed.

    Even more heinous, Sheriff Joe Arpaio continues to run roughshod over every known tenet of human decency. He and his charges are launching one of their trademark raids on a west Phoenix neighborhood, harrassing local citizens in a feeble attempt to root out "illegal" immigrants. Note what he says about yesterday's injunction, which said that the portion of SB 1070 which required people to always carry proof of their immigrant status or else face charges was pre-empted by federal law:

    Sheriff Joe should not have to carry out raid to find illegals, legals should turn them in. That is what a true American citizen would do. In Arizona, legal immigrants are turning in members of their families that are illegal. Legal immigrants are hurt by illegal immigration also.

    I am very curious as to how this ruling will be applied to sanctuary cities as those laws are in the same spirit, in regards to federal law, as the 1070 bill Clinton's apointee stopped the enforcement of (however she left alone the sanctuary city stuff sooooo.....to be continued ;))

    They'll be sorry when businesses have to start paying Ameican wages.

    They'll be begging the illegals to come back.

    Who is going to be sorry?

    I tell you what us regular mechanic shops who don't pay people indentured servant wages are going to be super happy if the other shops have to start competing on a level payroll playing field.

    Those who hire illegals can pay their guys 10/hour cash under the table with no benefits. How is a regular, law abiding, business supposed to compete with that? It cant much in the same way our manufacturing base has been decimated by cheap chinese labor/product.

    Immigration has never been a "state right" but a federal responsibility.
