A bill that was attempted to be passed by Arizona in order to put a leash on illegal immigration, which the federal government has largely failed to do; Arizona spends hundreds of millions on jailing illegals, and who knows how much more on educating them, providing welfare for them, etc., even though they don't pay taxes.
The law's purpose is based off of a federal law that prohibits illegal immigration. Contrary to popular (actually, minority, because the majority of the country supports it) belief, its parameters strictly and directly prohibit racial profiling of any kind. Police officers aren't allowed to go up to anyone they want and say "show me your papers." In fact, they are required to check immigration status if one has already been arrested for a crime.
Countless other states have introduced and/or instituted their own versions of SB-1070. The Obama Administration has shown blatant opposition to the bill and managed to essentially take away all proponents of it that gave it any effectiveness at all. Not only that, but State Department officials admitted to dissing Arizona's "humanitarian rights-violating" bill to countries such as China and Libya. Most, if not all of the Administration's accusations of the bill have truly been completely false.
Obama: "If you didn't have your papers and you took your kids out for ice cream, you could be harassed." (actual quote)
Someone who has actually read SB 1070: "No, you couldn't. Unless going out for ice cream is a crime now."
Racist legislation created by the KKK, Neo-Nazis, and White Supremacists targeting Hispanics in Arizona. The evil White Devils try to justify the law by saying that it merely reinforces the federal law, when, in fact, the law will only encourage harassment, racial profiling, and discrimination towards marginalized Latinos.
Senator Pearce and Govenor Brewer attempt to use this law to further the White Supremacists' agenda of eradicating this diverse country of Hispanics.
Basically, the law is the work of the devil, and should be resisted at all costs. We cannot let this madness spread to other states.
Boycott SB 1070, mis amigos. The White Devils must have forgot that Arizona once belonged to Mexico.
Police Officer#1: Officer Harris, I'm bored. Let's go shake down some Mexicans tonight.
Police Officer #2: I'm game! Let's use SB 1070 again...it allows us to arrest dem Taco Heads without probable cause or a warrant. Let's get 'em!
Police Officer #1: Hey, Jose Cuervo, let me see your papers!
Poor Chicano: Excuse me, sir?
Police Officer #1: You heard me, Carlos! Let me see your papers. We have reason to believe you are an illegal immigrant needing to be deported.
Poor Chicano: What is this? 1939 Nazi Germany? Officer Dumbshit, I was BORN here. I'm going for a run in the park. I don't have "immigration papers", as I am a US citizen.
Police Officer #1: I don't believe you, Don Julio. You are under arrest. You have the right to remain silent....
Police Officer #2: I'm gonna check his pockets. He's probably a bandido or a dope smuggler!
Poor Chicano: Help! These pendejos are violating my civil rights!
labeling out Mexican immigrants
in Arizona, cops now have permission to violate the constitutional rights of the Mexican population of the area. Reason this law was passed was because of the rise of crime from smugglers coming in, out, and around Mexico, many of which are from El Salvador and Columbia and even the USA
. So Mexicans are the only ones taking advantage of Americans' hospitality, what about other immigrants, there are hundreds of thousands of Canadians living in the US without Green Cards, and no one notices, just and example.
sb1070: The Alvarez was deported for not having Green Cards on the day they were supposed to get tested for them but issed their time, one week later the cross the US-Mexico border to visit their family, the have their passport and it is up-to-date, but the father- Marcos matches the profile of a Salvadoran involed with an ms-13 drug trafficer, he gets deported after being sentenced to it because they didn't beleive he was a Mexican father of three because of his name.
Law giving Arizona police expanded powers to question people's legal status in the country during a routine arrest. It has been unfairly called racist due to misinformation being spread by media outlets and politicians about what the law actually allows officers to do. The law specifically prohibits racial profiling, and is actually less strict that the fedeal law that is currently on the books. Opposition to his bill is primarily coming from two fronts. The first is hispanic americans that are ethnic loyalists first before they are Americans and care only about their particular ethnic group. And the second is leftist politicians that have been attempting, through massive demographic shift to neutralize the white conservative vote by importing the entire underclass of Mexico and Central America. They hope to legalize them one day then buy their votes with entitlements in hopes of creating a permanent Democratic majority in congress. Neither of these two fronts truly want anything done about the problems illegal immigrants create. All that matters to them is "la raza" and votes. The fact that Arizona has finally decided to step up and do what the federal gov't should have been doing for half a century has angered these two fronts, hence the crazy hyperbolic rhetoric from them. The USA is a sovereign nation with laws and borders that must be respected. We are not a boarding house for Mexico's crime and welfare cases. And most people are glad to see Arizona take a stand.more...
