    Florida Trying to Stop Immigration

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 27) -- If some Republican state lawmakers here get their way, Florida and Arizona may soon have more in common than just baseball's spring training.

    As Arizona girds for massive protests and an avalanche of litigation against its controversial immigration law, which goes into effect Thursday, the Sunshine State is considering a similar crackdown. Supporters tried to introduce an Arizona-style bill during last week's special legislative session, but it ended almost before it began.

    Lawmakers now plan to bring it up in September.

    "The majority of people in my district and across Florida are demanding action," said Republican state Rep. William Snyder, a former police officer from Stuart, Fla. "There's a strong sense among the voters that the federal government has failed to stop the influx of illegal aliens, and they want the state to be involved."

    Luis Morales is comforted by his mother, Adela, on Monday during a Miami vigil in support of immigration reform for undocumented parents who have been separated from their families. Republican state lawmakers are intent on bringing an Arizona-style immigration law to the Sunshine State.

    A recent Rasmussen Reports survey found nearly two out of three Florida voters favor an Arizona-style immigration law here. Fewer than a third agree with the U.S. Department of Justice's decision to challenge the legislation's legality.

    A separate poll of voters here revealed little support for offering a path to citizenship to those in the state illegally.

    Tamara Suarez, a restaurant owner in Apalachicola, where the local oyster industry depends heavily on Latino workers, called the Arizona law "terrible" and worries it will take hold here. A legal immigrant from Venezuela who is now a U.S. citizen, she said attitudes have changed since she emigrated more than 20 years ago.

    "Si, si, si," she said when asked if anti-immigrant sentiment has grown. "When I first came here, everybody was nice. It's changed."

    I didnt see a thread about this so i figured id post it.

    In Arizona the new law has already an impact. A lot of illegals are leaving that state. If Florida adopts a similar measure they will be losing a lot of illegals too.

    They most likely will flock to sanctuary cities like LA and SF. I love that idea.

    Well, if we can trust Rasmussen, it seems that more and more people are waking up to the threat these hispanics pose to American sovereignty. Lets hope its a trend which will continue into the future.

    Judge blocks parts of Arizona immigration law

    PHOENIX – A federal judge on Wednesday blocked the most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law from taking effect, delivering a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown.

    The overall law will still take effect Thursday, but without the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws.

    The judge also put on hold parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places. In addition, the judge blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants.

    "Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully-present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked," U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled.

    She ruled that the controversial sections should be put on hold until the courts resolve the issues. Other provisions of the law, many of them procedural and slight revisions to existing Arizona immigration statute, will go into effect at 12:01 a.m.

    The ruling came just as police were making last-minute preparations to begin enforcement of the law and protesters were planning large demonstrations to speak out against the measure. At least one group planned to block access to federal offices, daring officers to ask them about their immigration status.

    The volume of the protests will likely be turned down a few notches because of the ruling by Bolton, a Clinton appointee who suddenly became a crucial figure in the immigration debate when she was assigned the seven lawsuits filed against the Arizona law.



    AFP
    Lawyers for the state contend the law was a constitutionally sound attempt by Arizona — the busiest illegal gateway into the country — to assist federal immigration agents and lessen border woes such as the heavy costs for educating, jailing and providing health care for illegal immigrants.

    Opponents argued the law will lead to racial profiling, conflict with federal immigration law and distract local police from fighting more serious crimes. The U.S. Justice Department, civil rights groups and a Phoenix police officer had asked the judge for an injunction to prevent the law from being enforced.

    "There is a substantial likelihood that officers will wrongfully arrest legal resident aliens under the new (law)," Bolton ruled. "By enforcing this statute, Arizona would impose a 'distinct, unusual and extraordinary' burden on legal resident aliens that only the federal government has the authority to impose."

    The law was signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer in April and immediately revived the national debate on immigration, making it a hot-button issue in the midterm elections.

    The law has inspired rallies in Arizona and elsewhere by advocates on both sides of the immigration debate. Some opponents have advocated a tourism boycott of Arizona.

    It also led an unknown number of illegal immigrants to leave Arizona for other American states or their home countries.

    Federal authorities who are trying to overturn the law have argued that letting the Arizona law stand would create a patchwork of immigration laws nationwide that would needlessly complicate the foreign relations of the United States. Federal lawyers said the law is disrupting U.S. relations with Mexico and other countries and would burden the agency that responds to immigration-status inquiries.

    Brewer's lawyers said Arizona shouldn't have to suffer from America's broken immigration system when it has 15,000 police officers who can arrest illegal immigrants.

    The time is approaching. More and more people are becoming aware and awaken to what is happening around them. It is only a matter of time before we can finally put our foot down and begin massive exoduses of all illegal and hopefully legal immigrants.

    Americans love to make a lot noise,I would say to the point of hysteria.The fact is that illegal immigration to this country will not stop,and we know this.Tens of those laws have been passed but the flood doesn't stop,people don't realize that this is not a problem of lack of enforcement but a profound civilizational flaw.
