That phrase is NOT in the AZ law. Do these guys think no one will check what they say???The South Carolina bill reads: “When reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States, a reasonable attempt must be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person.”
Civil rights advocates, like the Rev. Al Sharpton, blasted the same phrasing in the Arizona law as opening the door to ethnic profiling of Latinos and anyone else appearing foreign-born.
If so, you can kiss the 10th amendment goodbye.Maybe if enough states join in, the Federal Government will be forced to DO something?
Maybe if supporters contacted officials and demanded it they'd act sooner.Maybe if enough states join in, the Federal Government will be forced to DO something?
Have you ever asked yourself WHY the federal government hasn't enforced our immigration laws regardless of which party has the presidency or congress? It's out corporations. They give money with the expected outcome that they will be allowed to bring in cheap, undocument labor. Immigrants who come through the proper channel are not willing to work for less than legally permissible wages. Illegals are caught between a rock and a hard place, so they will work for anything they can get.Wouldn't need it if the federal Government followed and enforced our current immigration laws!!!!
