OPPOSITION TO ARIZ IMMIGRATION LAW IS UNAMERICAN ACLU, DOJ, Obama, La Raza all claim Arizona Immigration Law opens the way for racial profiling, mis-conduct and civil right violation? What make the state officials any different then federal officials? The Federal Immigration and Nationality Act allows state to aid federal officials in enforcing immigration laws. 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. 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. ..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. (But allowed and is racial profiling) Aiding, abetting, harboring, encouraging illegals a felony Federal immigration agents have a record of deporting citizens, abuse of civil right and racial profiling and mistakes are made by both states officials and federal officials but that is no reason to stop enforcing our immigration laws. ACLU claim refugees and asylum seekers have been detained and deported. States only arrest and turn illegals over to federal agents and they detain and deport. If they are here legally they have papers and they are required to have those papers on their person at all times. I believe some are deliberately refusing to show their papers in order to build a case or racial profiling. Federal immigration officials screw up more often they state officials. So they pig dont fly that state immigration laws open up mis-conduct, etc.
