    Judicial Watch Sues Pasadena Police Department for Records Detailing Illegal Alien Sanctuary Policy | Judicial Watch

    Well if the WH wants to sue AZ for enforcing the law; then someone has to sue those that are openly defying it, right?

    Good for them.

    I read the article and from what is stated JW doesn't have a case. No one has forbidden anyone from sharing information with ICE, instead they merely don't ask people their immigration status.

    It boggles my mind that people, namely "conservatives", are against states rights when they involve brown people.

    It amazes me that the left is against state's rights when it comes to AZ.

    Forcing me to prove to the cops that I'm a citizen isn't a state right.

    Be careful what you pray for - the FEDS do have that right and they will start to enforce it! Especially if the SB1070 Bill is deemend unconstitutional. BTW, it's not forcing you to prove that you're a citizen, it's checking to see that you are here LEGALLY.

    If a state doesn't have a right to pass a law in regards to immigration then a state doesn't have that right.

    This applies to Arizona and to any states who allow sanctuary cities.


    Of corse if your viewing it from a political ideology then only arizona has the right to enforce it or only the other states have the right to ignore it......then of corse your a hypocrite but whatever.

    Key words: If arrested...reported to ICE.

    Also, the Arizona law makes it a criminal state offense...it is in no way the same thing as California is doing. A state is not within its rights to have the police make me prove my citizenship simply because they've pulled me over for a traffic infraction.

    No state has passed a law allowing sanctuary cities. Some cities merely don't question people's immigration status as it is not and nor should it be required by federal law.
