MORE CONFERENCES WEIGHING ARIZONA BOYCOTT

Rate this Entry

Law.com reports that the American Bar Association is being pressured to move a conference in Phoenix scheduled for next week after its co-sponsor for the event, the National Legal Aid & Defender Association, announced it was pulling out of the event. Other groups that planned to send representatives, like the City Bar Justice Center in New York, called for the conference location to be moved. A number of speakers at the event have also announced they will not attend.

Law.com also reports that Alpha Phi Alpha, the national black fraternity, announced plans to move its annual conference in July from Phoenix to Las Vegas.

    True..but the racist Gibbons and "I can pass for white" Sandoval are not much different. California, yes, may be Minnesota, Washington, Oregon and Illinois.

    The boycotts come in reaction to an Arizona law enacted last month that makes it illegal not to carry immigration documents

    SINCE THAT'S ALREADY FEDERAL LAW, BY THEIR LOGIC THE CONVENTION SHOULD BE MOVED TO ANOTHER COUNTRY.

    and gives police authority to detain anyone on the basis of "reasonable suspicion" that a person is in the country illegally.

    INCORRECT. DETENTION EXPLICITLY CANNOT BE BASED ON ILLEGAL PRESENCE.

    It is not a federal law mandate to carry immigration documents all the time...and US citizens dont have to carry birth certificates or national ID everywhere...so determine who is a citizen and who is an immigrant...good luck!

    Nooo since they pre-empt federal law when it comes to Immigration Law and became a de-facto police state they should not complaint when people want nothing to do with their values and choose to take their business elsewhere....

    In the real world things work differently. See link below:

    BTW, Jack I am opposed to the Senate CIR because of its requirements of mandating a national ID.

    "I am opposed to the Senate CIR because of its requirements of mandating a national ID."

    That seems to be the main selling tool that Schumer and Menedez are using to sell their proposal and to apiece the enforcement aspects of the same. My guess is that if they compromise on that they whole CIR effort would be called amnesty... I am not saying I agree with that but that seems to be how it would play out.
