  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    Even those of us who hate Arizona's new hate law, SB 1070, have to respect the fair and objective analysis of the law by the CRS in the June 1 ID. It is impossible to argue with the idea that there is already some authority in federal immigration law for 1) letting the states get involved with immigration enforcement, under certain conditions and with reasonable limits and 2) criminalizing some aspects of the immigration system.

    The question is whether the Arizona law respects and is consistent with federal immigration policies and objectives, or whether Arizona is just trying to use a few superficial similarities with federal law as a jumping-off ground for going in a radically new, and dangerously intolerant, direction. I think that anyone who takes a really careful look at the Arizona law will have little doubt that the latter is the case.

    To mention only two factors, both of which were alluded to in the CRS study, the preamble to the Arizona law makes "attrition though enforcement" the public policy of the state. Where in the INA or the US Constitution does it say that this is federal public policy, or that states can set their own immigration policies, as opposed to just assisting the federal government with enforcement?

    Second, incarcerating someone while waiting to determine the person's immigration status is completely against federal law, which only allows immigration incarceration when someone is charged with a specific immigration violation. The Arizona provision, which could mean locking up American citizens and legal immigrants for months or years while trying to determine their status, not only violates the most basic notions of due process, but is against everything that this country stands for.

    Arizona, even with a few possible federal law fig leafs, is going off in a radical and extremely dangerous direction, that of a racially based police state. Worse still, it is doing this with full knowledge and intent.

    In his fervid attacks on Arizona's law, Mr. Algase appears to be blind to any other possible arguments over the issue. His daily diatribes ignore the negative impacts that illegal immigration have had on Arizona, particularly along the border.

    The article in the attached link gives some perspective from people whose lives have been severly disrupted by illegal immigration and its impacts.

    Mr. Algase is, of course, entitled to his beliefs, but it's hard to see how his kind of rhetoric will do anything to bring about any solutions to the "immigration mess".

  3. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    What I gather from the link that John Frecker attaches to his comment is that there needs to be more focus on going after drug dealers and dangerous criminals along the Mexican border, which is exactly what the stated policy of the federal government is. Admittedly, how well it is working in practice may be another question.

    The Arizona law, however, goes in the opposite direction. Beginning with its preamble that official state policy toward immigration is "attrition through enforcement", a phrase nowhere contained in federal law to my knowledge, the law makes clear that everyone who may be "unlawfully present" a complex term of art that a top USCIS official, Donald Neufeld, tried to define last year in a 51-page memo which it is safe to say that no one in the Arizona legislature or State House has likely ever heard of or understood, the Arizona law targets all individuals (Latino ones, at least) who may come into "lawful contact" with the police.

    If there is one thing that all of us can agree on, it is that "lawful contact" does not have to mean being suspected of any crime. I sometimes buy my newspaper at a nearby deli here in Manhattan where police officers often stop for coffee. Sometimes we exchange "hello's". That is lawful contact.

    My corner bank and nearest bookstore also have at least one police officer on patrol at most times. The officers look at customers and customers look back at them. Lawful contact, Si! Suspected criminal activity, No! It is sheer nonsense to say that the purpose of the Arizona immigration law is to reduce drug dealing or other violent crime, unless one believes that every person of Mexican ancestry in that state is a potentially dangerous criminal. Unfortunately, that is exactly what the authors of this law in fact seem to believe. But is that kind of racist presumption contained anywhere in the federal immigration law? Of course not.

    We can all disagree about whether the Arizona law is a good idea or not. But please, let us all be spared the absurd falsehood that the Arizona law only "tracks" federal law or that it is merely trying to "help" the federal government with immigration enforcement. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    The Arizona law is actually trying to divert resources from the fight against violent crime into hounding people who do not give any signs of being engaged in drug dealing or dangerous or violent criminal activity, but who just happen to "look" illegal (or, more accurately, "ulawfully present" which may be something quite different). As I have said, we can agree or disagree about whether is is good policy. But at least let us be clear about what the Arizona law actually says and does. Fighting drug dealers or violent criminals is not high on the list of things to do under this law. Getting rid of people who look Hispanic is.
