PRO-IMMIGRATION RALLIES SET FOR SATURDAY AROUND THE COUNTRY

Rate this Entry
On May 1, 2006, hundreds of thousands of immigrants around the country demonstrated against a restrictive immigration bill introduced in Congress. This weekend, similar demonstrations will occur around the US. I'll be attending my 20th law school reunion in Chicago this weekend and am hoping to attend that rally. I'd really rather be at the one in Phoenix and look forward to hearing reports from there.

    "Thanks to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who last Friday signed the nation's strictest immigration bill into law, that last item on the list will be required pocket paraphernalia come August for any immigrant in the Grand Canyon State."

    Thanks to the U.S. Congress. Jan creates no new obligation because the state law is duplicative of the federal one. Am I wrong?

    "So say sayonara to "Si Se Puede" and hola to "Si Se Papers." This bill reaches into a dark corner in the basement of history, dusts off the Ghosts of Prejudice Past--Nazi Germany, Jim Crow, and Apartheid--and deposits them curbside in Arizona."

    If so, since the requirement was already in effect, we already are Nazi Germany, Juan Crow, Sun City, etc. Boycott...America?

    Speaking of Chicago, I saw Luis Gutierrez sanctimoniously talking boycott of Arizona and I was thinking, man, from the glass house you come from, maybe you shouldn't be throwing stones! Of course, I would gladly break a boycott of Chi-town just for a Superdawg or one of the other famous dogs.

    Not sure if you do not understand how different AZ law from federal law, or you do not understand the meaning of word "wrong".

    Yes, you are WRONG. Can you point to any Federal law or statute that makes you guilty of trespassing on your own property, if you do not possess legal immigration status? If not, then it does create a new obligation and Arizona has willfully violated the US Constitution. Brewer and the other Cans in their Oath of Office swore to uphold the US Constitution. They willfully thumb their noses at it. In effect they are more illegal than the illegals!

    In re trespassing, a NY Times Op-Ed calls it Breathing While Undocumented:

    http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/26/breathing-while-undocumented/?src=mv

    "What would Arizona's revered libertarian icon, Barry Goldwater, say about a law that requires the police to demand proof of legal residency from any person with whom they have made "any lawful contact" and about whom they have "reasonable suspicion" that "the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States?" Wasn't the system of internal passports one of the most distasteful features of life in the Soviet Union and apartheid-era South Africa?"

    In addition to the NY Times I stand corrected as well:

    From the bottom of the Breathing While Undocumented article:

    "Correction:

    An earlier version of this Op-Ed essay referred incorrectly to the provisions of the new Arizona immigration statute. The version of the bill signed by the governor no longer includes a section under which undocumented immigrants would be guilty of trespassing for being on Arizona soil."
