    Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
    Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

    Enforcement

    State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law. There is no extant federal limitation on this authority. The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws. Immigration officers and local law enforcement officers may detain an individual for a brief warrantless interrogation where circumstances create a reasonable suspicion that the individual is illegally present in the U.S. Specific facts constituting a reasonable suspicion include evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens. Hispanic appearance alone is not sufficient. Immigration officers and police must have a valid warrant or valid employer's consent to enter workplaces or residences. Any vehicle used to transport or harbor illegal aliens, or used as a substantial part of an activity that encourages illegal aliens to come to or reside in the U.S. may be seized by an immigration officer and is subject to forfeiture. The forfeiture power covers any conveyances used within the U.S.

    Hello LillOlLady,
    I'm new here just joined today. Your facts are correct. I have been on twitter and facebook and everyone is criticizing this new bill without reading it.
    Everyone is saying how much this is going to cost the taxpayers. Nothing! the lawbreakers and those who bring friviolus law suites are going to pay for this. I think is great that Az is making lawbreakers responsible for their own actions.
    The left are extreamly upset because it will make them pay for their crimes.
    I love how carefully this bill was written.
    Let's see what the feds are going to do about this.

    Arizona would not go to all the trouble of writting the law and the governor signing it if it was unconstitutional. There are also loop holes in the healthcare bill also.
    I especiall like this part;

    where circumstances create a reasonable suspicion that the individual is illegally present in the U.S. Specific facts constituting a reasonable suspicion include evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens.
