The Los Angeles Times reports on the turmoil the new Arizona immigration law is bringing to a small town. And the New York Times runs an editorial slamming the measure.

    The Arizona law is clearly unconstitutional. My guess is that an injunction will be immediately issued against its enforcement. If the District Court Judge doesn't have the courage to grant the plaintiffs an injuction, the Ninth Circuit certainly will. We are fortunate that the Ninth Circuit still has jurisdiction (remember all that talk by the Cans of splitting the Ninth Circuit and creating a 12th Circuit for Arizona and others) over Arizona.

    It's a mistake. Period.

    It would certainly undercut other traditional law enforcement activities like crime fighting. They will be replicating what US immigration is doing. Focusing too much on who *might* be overstaying their visas rather than focusing on who *might* be terrorists. The result? Denying visas to would be good visitors and giving visas to people like the X'mas day bomber. Nice work !!

    People who are brown-skinned (w/ legal documents or not) would also be afraid to even go out unless really needed. Read: Watch your local economy slow to a halt. I bet they will be getting out of AZ and go to nearby CA instead. Watch trigger-happy crazies moving in as well to the State.

    I really don't buy the notion that it can't be implemented because there isn't much resource for it. I'm sure a few police men there are itching for this law and would even go over-time and go beyond the call of duty to implement this. Even if they don't get compensated for their extra effort.

    With no CIR or piecemeal legislation coupled with poor H1 filings immigration lawyers are having it rough. The lobbying effort from AILA needs to be more robust & decisive. Everyone knows the lawmakers are out there looking for money coming their way. It's obvious from the insider deals for HCR with the pharma & insurance companies.

    I am a legal immigrant and I was planning to visit the Grand Canyon, but I would never visit Arizona with such a law in effect.

    "I am a legal immigrant and I was planning to visit the Grand Canyon, but I would never visit Arizona with such a law in effect."

    Yet another way for their local economy to suffer. Also heard that private practice doctors particularly in Scottsdale are going to end their practices in 2014 when HC reform fully takes effect. No doctors because of HC reform and no brown-skinned nurses as well because of this law.

    Probably will erect a wall as well in the border sooner or later.

    This law will not progress there are many legal challenges that it must pass before it takes effect, it probably will die and only serve the antis for political posturing. It will probably will hurt McCain and influence his vote on a potential CIR in a negative way.

    I had the same thought on the Grand Canyon. It was actually on my short list of vacation spots for next winter. Now, Hawaii it is.

    McCain the turncoat...

    Wonder what he will say when his adopted daughter is detained!

    The point is very simple - the politicians have killed the golden goose (the US economy) and are now putting the blame on immigrants. It is for the people to see through their game.

    McCain imagines that he needs to be tough on immigrants so that the right wing conservative base will vote for him this election season. This proves beyond a shadow of doubt that he is not the visionary or the statesman that he professes to be and that the American People made the right choice last election season.
