    Brief for 9 states backs Arizona immigration law - Yahoo! News


    DETROIT – States have the authority to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said Wednesday in a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona's immigration law.

    Cox, one of five Republicans running for Michigan governor, said Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court and is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands.

    The Arizona law, set to take effect July 29, directs officers to question people about their immigration status during the enforcement of other laws such as traffic stops and if there's a reasonable suspicion they're in the U.S. illegally.

    America is conflicted concerning immigration law enforcement along our border with Mexico.

    On the one hand, certain citizens groups like the Minutemen tried to help enforcement.
    Arizona enacts additional immigration enforcement tools, and other states are in the process of doing the same. A significant percentage of the general public support stronger enforcement of immigration laws. Fences and other physical structures were constructed to control or obstruct illegal immigration. Border patrol has been equipped with sophisticated detection apparatus and manpower has been increased.

    On the other hand, the Federal Government sues Arizona over its new law, but has yet to adopt a meaningful response to the growing masses of illegal aliens within our borders. Decries citizen help. Sweeps under the rug information identifying illegal aliens, IE the Utah outing. Retreats to bureaucratic mumbo jumbo when confronted with illegal alien identifications.

    The Hispanic lobby has very effectively mobilized and locked up the Feds into doing nothing. Their thrust is couched in terms of human suffering, human rights and so on.

    The opposition rallies around legal terms and rule of law.

    Apples and Oranges.

    Let me say the border patrol, I use that term as all inclusive of immigration agencies, is doing their part. They are just simply overwhelmed. Present border security efforts cannot ever stem the magnitude of this migration. Mexico is literally transferring it's population to North America IMO.

    We can't even kick out the parents and keep the kids.
