    The Governor of Arizona Signs Bill to Enforce Immigration Laws

    Arizona gov Jan Brewer calls for more border protection "The responsibility to ensure that we have an orderly, secure border — not just some imaginary line or a rickety fence — belongs to the federal government, and they have failed," Brewer said, adding that she has asked five times for President Barack Obama to deploy troops.



    The Republican governor ordered a re-allocation of state National Guard and law enforcement resources and called on the federal government to deploy National Guard troops as hundreds of Hispanics protested the bill at the State Capitol complex.

    It sounds excellent and a rare show of responsibility on Jan Brewers side. From what I can tell Arizona has huge problems because of the massive illegal immigration from Mexico and another farmer just recently was murdered along the Arizona border. It would be interesting to hear from the Arizonians on Skadi and get their take on this situation, on Jan Brewer and the overall political and social climate in Arizona.

    It's Now Law - AZ Gov Signs Illegal Immigration Enforcement Bill

    Ariz. governor signs immigration enforcement bill

    By PAUL DAVENPORT and JONATHAN J. COOPER
    The Associated Press
    Friday, April 23, 2010; 10:40 PM

    PHOENIX -- Gov. Jan Brewer ignored criticism from President Barack Obama on Friday and signed into law a bill supporters said would take handcuffs off police in dealing with illegal immigration in Arizona, the nation's busiest gateway for human and drug smuggling from Mexico.

    With hundreds of protesters outside the state Capitol shouting that the bill would lead to civil rights abuses, Brewer said critics were "overreacting" and that she wouldn't tolerate racial profiling.

    "We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act," Brewer said after signing the law. "But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation."

    I really hope every state in the Union follows suite and iacts a bill such as this.Do not wait for the Federal Government to give asylum to the millions of
    illegals who are already here.
    Illegal means just that,illegal.If you or I broke the law like this we would have
    to suffer the consequences.

    If only the same could be said and done about California. Eventually, this neck and neck population of whites and mexicans is going to end, and mexicans will be an overwhelming majority.

    BHO is not happy with Arizona & in intimidating language said "we will closely monitor the situation and examine the civil rights and other implications of this legislation."

    70% of Arizona Voters Favor New State Bill On Illegal Immigration

    The Arizona legislature has now passed the toughest measure against illegal immigration in the country, authorizing local police to stop and check the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally.

    A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 70% of likely voters in Arizona approve of the legislation, while just 23% oppose it.

    Opponents of the measure, including major national Hispanic groups, say it will lead to racial profiling, and 53% of voters in the state are concerned that efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants also will end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens. Forty-six percent (46%) don’t share that concern

    Those figures include 23% who are very concerned and 18% who are not at all concerned.

    Civil rights concerns were a bit higher last year. following a series of aggressive enforcement actions by the Maricopa County Sherriff.

    Eighty-three percent (83%) of Arizona voters say a candidate's position on immigration is an important factor in how they will vote, including 51% who say it’s very important.

    The measure is already having an impact on this year’s Senate and governor races in the state.

    Senator John McCain, who is facing a serious Republican Primary challenge this year in part over his involvement in developing immigration reform legislation, on Monday endorsed the new state law. McCain now earns just 47% support to challenger J.D. Hayworth’s 42% in Arizona’s hotly contested GOP Senate Primary race.

    Arizonans consistently have been critical of the U.S. government’s failure to secure the border with Mexico, and that anxiety has increased with growing drug violence along the border.

    While many in Washington, D.C. view immigration reform as a way to legalize the 10 million or more illegal immigrants in the country, 73% of voters in Arizona now say gaining control of the border is more important than legalizing the status of these undocumented workers.

    In July of last year, 51% of Arizona voters said it is more important for Congress to pass immigration reform than health care reform.

    That view is shared by voters nationwide and has been for several years.

    Eighty-four percent (84%) of Arizona Republicans and 69% of voters not affiliated with either major party in the state favor the new get-tough legislation. Democrats are more closely divided: 51% like the new law, but 43% oppose it.

    Sixty percent (60%) of Democrats and 57% of unaffiliateds are concerned that the law may lead to possible civil rights violations against U.S. citizens. Fifty-four percent (54%) of Republicans are not very or not at all concerned about this.

    State Attorney General Terry Goddard, a Democrat who is running against Brewer for governor this year, has announced his opposition to the new law.

    The top four GOP contenders for governor of Arizona, including Brewer, have all expanded their support since last month in match-ups with Goddard. The Democrat has lost ground and now trails in all four contests. One factor in the latest trends may have been Goddard’s refusal to join other states in suing the federal government over the new health care law. Brewer found a way to proceed despite Goddard’s refusal and got a big bounce in the polls.

    The new law puts into state statute some of the policies that have long been practiced by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. But his aggressive enforcement of federal laws against illegal immigration have triggered a Justice Department probe and moves by the Obama administration to reduce his ability to enforce federal immigration laws.

    When these moves against Arpaio were first reported in March 2009, 68% of Arizona voters said they had a favorable view of the sheriff. Voters also strongly favored his tactics including police raids on places where illegal immigrants gather to find work
    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/publ...al_immigration

    Interesting that 83% say "a candidate's position on immigration is an important factor in how they will vote" but one wonders how the other 17% are reasoning? I mean whatever position you take, this is a question that impacts every Arizonians life.
    Oh and does royal scum bag John McCain have any quality opposition in Arizona? This endorsement is obviously pure tactic on hes side as he was/is a big supporter of amnesty for illegals.

    Small Riot Breaks Out In Phoenix



    Witnesses say a group protesting against SB1070 began to fight with a man who was for the controversial immigration bill.

    Police tried escorting that man away from the scene, fearing for his safety, when they too came under attack by people throwing items, including water bottles.

    San Francisco calls for boyvott of Arizona

    San Francisco is one of the most lefty cities & America, and also a "sanctuary city". A sanctuary city is one that does not enforce federal immigration law & forbids its employees (including police) from inquiring about the legal status of anyone. I don't think many in Arizona will find a boycott by San Francisco intimidating.

    SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco city officials are calling for a boycott of Arizona and businesses based there to protest that state's strict new immigration law.
    The city attorney, Dennis Herrera, offered on Monday to help with any challenges to the law. He says his teams will start determining which contracts between the city and county of San Francisco and Arizona could be severed without penalty.

    Herrera does not know how many businesses this could affect.

    Several city supervisors also promise to introduce a resolution calling for a citywide boycott of Arizona.

    A rally outside City Hall called for immigration reform and applauded the city officials' stance. They say laws like Arizona's would lead to racial profiling, and only a path to legalization would shield immigrants.

    Wow, I guess I have the honor of being the first Arizonan to post on the topic. Yes, the illegal immigration situation here in Arizona is out of control, the murder of the rancher on his property along the border that triggered this bill is sadly not unprecedented. Innocent American citizens are killed regularly by illegal immigrants in this state. His murder was just the tipping point that finally pushed this bill through the legislature. The reality is that Arizona is the primary point of entry for almost all illegal immigrants and drugs flowing into the United States (due to the fact that we have the longest open border with Mexico), and as a result it has become something of a battleground and many parts of Southern Arizona are effectively lawless as a result.

    I have lived out here my entire life and I can tell you that this problem has been serious for decades now. The simple truth is that the Federal Government is actively refusing to enforce the laws of the U.S. Whatever the government's rationale might be is largely irrelevant to people here in AZ because our state is being overrun by a foreign criminal element that is spreading crime and violence everywhere.

    I am not saying that all immigrants are bad people, but the simple fact is that there are many who are entering this country for the express purpose of pursuing felony-class criminal activity. This bill is really a desperate attempt to gain control of the situation. I personally find it frightening that our own federal government is choosing to take the side of a horde of non-citizen immigrants over the lawful actions of our duly-elected state government. To me this is the most overt proof I have seen that our national government is directly opposing the will of the American people.

    But this immigration bill is actually just the opening round of what is likely to become a fairly significant conflict between Arizona and the Federal Government. In addition to the immigration enforcement act the state legislature has also passed a number of other fairly controversial bills recently:

    1 - A law stating the Federal Gun Control laws do not apply to weapons manufactured and sold entirely within the state of Arizona. Basically this law is stating that it is legal for citizens to produce and sell fully automatic weapons as along as the entire business stays inside the state. Obviously the Feds can's let this go, before you know it other "non-compliant" states might start paving the way for their own in-state arms factories. Its not too hard to see this as a step toward open rebellion...

    2 - A law stating that it is legal for all citizens without felony convictions to carry concealed weapons. That is right, right now in Arizona it is legal to walk around with a fully loaded pistol in your waistband and the cops can't do anything about it. You can even bring said weapon into a bar. I doubt the Feds will really be able to do too much about this one, even though a law like this is bound to make gun-control types lose sleep.

    3 - A law requiring the Federal Government to produce the authentic birth certificate of Barack Obama. Yeah they really passed this law, as hard as it is to believe. Honestly, doesn't it sound like the state legislature is trying to build legal grounds for succession here? Building up arms production, encouraging the armament of the public, accusing the President of being ineligible for the office he holds...

    4 - The long running investigation of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a man who continues to have his deputies arrest and detain illegal immigrants despite being expressly told not to by the Federal Courts. Now, I am no fan of "Sheriff Joe" as he is called out here (the man is about as fascist as they come, a mini Mussolini if you will) but he is becoming something of a cult hero to locals. Rumor has it he might even run for Governor next election. As much as I don't like to admit it, he would win in a landslide if he runs for the office. Can you imagine Sherrif Joe, combative militant that he is, in charge of a state that is passing laws authorizing arms production? It may sound far-fetched, but things are getting more than a little crazy out here...

    Onepercent every state whos leaders still care about our country need to enact bills such as your state,Arizona,has done.It is plain to see that the Fed is not "American" anymore and is an extension of European Bankers and is a
    criminal organization.Somebody has been plotting the downfall of our country from the inside and as you can see,it is working.
    The loss of our maufacturing center and rampant illegal immigration is just costing each state way to many dollars.Ten years ago,one could walk in your
    counties Health Department and see a few unfortunate people receiving help.
    Now they are jam packed with Mexicans on a daily basis.This has got to stop.
    It is costing way to much money.
    This all started with Clinton and his dealings with Japan,China and the B.S.
    Bill called N.A.F.T.A..This tragic chapter of our countries history needs to
    come to an abrupt halt.

    When will we wake up?

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer recently signed legislation making it a crime to be in the country illegally. Some are crying foul, but what’s foul is that a state had to take the lead in enacting a bill to essentially criminalize the presence of the projected 460,000 illegal immigrants living in that state. Last time I checked, being in the country illegally was a federal offense.
    Gov. Brewer says Arizona has been, “more than patient waiting for Washington to act” so they decided to put some teeth into the law themselves and I applaud them.

    The latest FBI statistics show 83 percent of murder warrants in Phoenix are for illegal aliens; 75 percent of those on their most wanted list are illegal aliens; 40.1 percent of Arizona’s inmates are illegal aliens and 30 percent fill America’s state and federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually; 63 percent of stopped Arizona drivers have no license, insurance or vehicle registration and 97 percent of those are illegal aliens. In 2005 alone, 380,000 babies were born in the U.S. to illegal alien parents (making them automatic U.S. citizens) with 97 percent of all costs incurred paid by American taxpayers.

    When will we wake up?
    http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.o...ll-we-wake-up/

    83% of murder warrants in Phoenix are illegals thats a massive number! I wonder how many of the other 17% illegals where involved in some way and how many of the warrants where for whites?
