Section-by-Section Analysis of the Arizona Immigration Enforcement Legislation

Rate this Entry

The ACLU of Arizona has done a section by section analysis of the new immigration enforcement legislation that has been passed in the State of Arizona. It is titled: SB 1070: "Immigration; Law Enforcement; Safe
Neighborhoods."

They summarize the bill as follows:

ffice:smarttags">ffice:smarttags">ffice:smarttags">

This bill
unconstitutionally allows the state of Arizona
to regulate immigration by making any non-citizen who has entered the lace w:st="on">United Stateslace>
without permission guilty of the additional state crime of trespassing. It
gives local police officers authority to investigate, detain and arrest people
for perceived immigration violations without the benefit of proper training,
exacerbating the problem of racial profiling and raising concerns about the
prolonged detention of citizens and legal residents. - ACLU of Arizona


Sheriff Joe Arpaio went on the Ed Show on MSNBC yesterday and played the victim:



Buckle your
seat-belts people, because this is going to be a bumpy ride.

The
American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has issued the following
response
urging the Arizona
Governor to veto the unconstitutional and overly punitive anti-immigrant bill.

AILA "strongly
urges Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to veto a bill moving rapidly through the
state legislature that would make it a crime to be an undocumented immigrant in
the state. In addition to being unconstitutional under the Supremacy Clause of
the U.S. Constitution, the law would effectively authorize police to engage in
racial profiling against immigrants and permit citizens to sue any state or
local agency if they believe it is failing to enforce the law." -AILA
InfoNet Doc. No. 10041660 (posted Apr. 16, 2010)

Update:

In the wake of the passing of this legislation, and never one to let a serious crisis go to waste, the Obama administration
took advantage of the press distraction by conducting what they
characterize as one of the government's "largest-ever human smuggling
busts." 

Federal agents arrested nearly 50 shuttle operators and alleged
smugglers
accused of using vans to transport thousands of undocumented immigrants
from
Mexico to Phoenix.

In stark contrast to the Government's characterization, it has been reported that this "largest-ever human smuggling bust" resulted in
only 17 individuals arrested that had entered without inspection, or
were undocumented.

The New York Times further reported that Alfonso Quintero, the owner of a nearby ****ler repair shop, said that he never saw anything suspicious stating: "I didn't
see anything illegal" "Looked like they just wanted a ride."

Here is the Government's spin:

    The problem, simply stated, is that religious neutrality is a
    myth. All world-views or philosophies are rooted in some original
    premise or presupposition about the nature, cause and purpose of
    the universe, which are unavoidably religious ideas. Belief in God
    and belief in no God are religious ideas, but more than that they
    are fundamental and contradictory logical presuppositions. There
    are, of course, other religious presuppositions in the world, but
    in our nation the contest is between belief in God and atheism
