    PHOENIX - Without a word of debate, the House on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to a series of changes in state law to combat illegal immigration.

    HB 2632 would allow police to arrest anyone in the country illegally and charge them with a state trespassing violation, to give officers clear legal authority to detain illegal immigrants.

    Whether the provision is legal remains to be seen.

    Federal courts elsewhere have rejected similar state laws, saying only Congress can approve laws allowing the arrest of those who enter the country illegally. But Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, who has been behind much of the legislation aimed at illegal immigrants, said he believes it will be upheld.

    The measure also seeks to overrule what Pearce has called "sanctuary policies."

    As approved Tuesday, it requires police to make a "reasonable attempt, when practicable," to determine the immigration status of anyone they encounter as part of any "lawful contact" they make. That would override the practice in some communities of telling police not to raise the issue so as to not deter victims and witnesses from coming forward.

    Another provision would make it a crime for a motorist to stop on a road to hire or attempt to hire someone for a job elsewhere. Violators could go to jail for up to six months. Those who solicit work in a pubic place would face the same penalty.

    That law is aimed at "day laborers," some of whom are undocumented workers, who often congregate near home-improvement stores.

    HB 2632 would also make it a crime to transport, conceal or harbor someone who the person knows - or recklessly disregards the likelihood - is an illegal immigrant, including family members of those who entered the country illegally.

    A final roll-call vote will send the measure to the Senate, which already has approved a virtually identical bill.

    Hi Angel:

    Much tougher aiding, abetting and harboring laws are already on the books in the "Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986" (Wiki) that NOBODY in America is enforcing. We The Sheeple gave up to 3 Million goddamned Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals U.S. Citizenship in order to NEVER go through this STUPIDITY AGAIN. And yet, the legislation is already written to give 12 to 20 MILLION Illegal Aliens U.S. Citizenship, which will only kick the 'back door' wide open to another 20 Million goddamned Illegal Aliens.

    Obama could create 20 Million JOBS right here in the USA for real U.S. Citizens by simply doing his job of enforcing the perfectly good Immigration and Employment Laws already on the books, but his goal is to destroy the U.S. Consumer/Tax Base to make everyone dependent on his Fascist Regime. Therefore, I would place very little hope in any new Arizona Legislation that will eventually be tested in the Federal Courts where judges are already in the pockets of the Open Border Lobby. The U.S. Economy is IMPLODING and nothing anyone does now will stop that from happening ...

    Think about it: We have 15 to 20 Million Americans now out of work 'and' the out-of-control Fascist Obama Regime has already drafted the Comprehensive Amnesty Legislation that will only put even more Americans out of work ...

    GL,

    Obama is NOT a president for the American people - that is a given. He is an ideologist who has the best interest of foreigners ONLY. It's just a matter if time before everybody see who they put in office - too little too late. GOD BLESS THE USA! MAY GOD KEEP IT SAFE!!!
