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.
Someone who has actually read SB 1070: "No, you couldn't. Unless going out for ice cream is a crime now."
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 #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!
Nancy Pelosi: "No, no no! Shhh! They're future democrats! We just need to be able to legalize them all and get away with it at the polls! Bwaaaaha ha ha haaaaa"
Bob: "Wow, you're a sick fuck. You know they suppress wages, steal jobs, drain resources, and in many cases, commit violent gang related crimes against American citizens."
Nancy Pelosi: "I don't give a shit. We need more stupid, low-skilled, uneducated non-whites whose votes we can buy."
Bob: "What about SB1070???"
Nancy Pelosi: "F*** SB1070. I need dumb Mexicans to vote for me."
