Americans are pressuring States to pass immigration laws modeled after Arizona ’s SB1070! States need to do everything within their power to stop the illegal alien invasion at the State level. STATES HAVE INHERENT AUTHORITY TO ENFORCE THESE LAWS. U.S. SUPREME COURT JUST RULED IN FAVOR OF ARIZONA ON SB1070 AND STATE’S RIGHTS.
This will anger Washington , the Left, and the Profits over Patriotism crowd, but it will save America !
If you are sick of dirty and corrupt politics, then work to stop Amnesty and demand enforcement of our immigration laws!
Stand with the millions of Patriotic Americans and STOP THE INVASION - NO AMNESTY! There is still time.
We must stand up for America , the rule of law and in defense of this nation. Like Patrick Henry said; "if not now when?" as he debated the love for freedom and this Republic prior to his famous "give me liberty or give me death" at the end of the speech.
Senate Bill 1070 has brought out and exposed the left wing open border radicals against the rule of law, who defend law breakers over law keepers, against law and order, against the citizens of this nation, against this Constitutional Republic and are pro law breakers and further the destruction of this nation by their support of lawlessness.
Illegal is not a race, it is a crime. Enough is enough!! This law applies to everyone equally and protects Constitutional rights. It is clear in the bill. This legislation does "not" expand police powers; it prohibits racial profiling; what it does do, is it simply allows law enforcement to do the job we hired them to do, enforce the law. They have no more authority to stop someone today, than they did yesterday. They can not profile at all. The difference is, after they have a lawful contact and have "reasonable suspicion" they can ask questions and act on that information on one's legal status if they have reason to believe they are in violation of federal and now state law, like we allow for any other crime. Under federal law and current Arizona law Sanctuary policies are illegal. Local, state, or federal government agencies that sanction or retaliate against employees or officials who report immigration law violations to ICE or the Border Patrol can be sued by the whistle blower under 8 U.S.C. 1373 or 8 U.S.C. 1644 for damages and costs.
Illegal aliens are not a suspect class entitled to Fourteenth Amendment based strict scrutiny of any discriminatory classification based on that status, nor are they defined by an immutable characteristic, since their status is the product of conscious unlawful action.
Under current federal law, every alien who has been issued a registration document is required to carry the document on his or her person 24/7. Federal regulations specify the immigration document is evidence of alien registration. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the unregistered presence of an alien in the U.S. is in itself a crime. Failure to register is a continuing violation for which there is no statute of limitations. Other criminal misdemeanors are failure to have a registration card in personal possession ($100 fine and /or 30 days imprisonment), and failure to report a change of address ($200 fine and /or 30 days).
A law enforcement officer has probable cause to detain an individual who admits he or she is an alien (legal or illegal) but is not in possession of registration documents. This is a crime that a warrant less arrest can be made.
During the debate of SB1070 another attempted murder on a Phoenix Police Officer by an illegal alien with felony warrants on him and my friend Rob Krentz was murdered. When is enough, enough for you? The cost of not enforcing our laws!! Killings, maiming, car jackings, home invasions, kidnappings, American jobs taken, wages suppressed, billions to educate, medicate and incarcerate.

When is enough, enough?
A Congressional report: "Drawing a Line in the Sand” indicates that 9,000 Americans are killed every year by illegal aliens. 25 per day, 12 by stabbings and shootings and 13 by DUI and related crimes. That is just collateral damage to the deceptive, treasonous, open border crowd. Enough is enough.
Study: 1 million sex crimes by illegals; More than 100 sex offenders crossing border daily Deborah Schurman-Kauflin: Based on a one-year in-depth study, a researcher estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each.
Today the only reasons our immigration laws are not enforced are Political, not a lack of Authority, well that is going to change in Arizona and hopefully America .
America’s Choice: Arizona or San Francisco .
As the author of SB1070 which was finally signed by Governor Jan Brewer. As usual fear mongering and mis-information is the tool of the left against this common sense legislation.
Illegal is not a race, it is a crime. SB1070 simply codifies federal law into state law and removes excuses and concerns about states inherent authority to enforce these laws and removes all illegal “sanctuary” policies.
When do we stand up for Americans and the rule of law, if not now, when? We are a nation of laws, a Constitutional Republic .
Arizona did not make illegal, illegal. Illegal was already illegal. It is a crime to enter or remain in the U.S. in violation of federal law. States have had inherent authority to enforce immigration laws and has failed or refused to do so. Sanctuary policies are illegal under federal law (8 USC 1644 & 1373) yet we have them all over the United States .
Paul Kantner of the 1960s rock band Jefferson Airplane once remarked, " San Francisco is 49 square miles surrounded by reality." When I first heard that San Francisco was planning to boycott Arizona over the SB 1070 legislation that I introduced, this description seemed fitting.
However, when neighboring Oakland ’s city council voted 7-0 to boycott Arizona, and President Pro Tem of the California State Senate Derrell Steinberg announced a campaign in the legislature to boycott us, it became clear that San Francisco is merely ahead of the California crazy curve.
Why did I propose SB 1070? I saw the enormous fiscal and social costs that illegal immigration was imposing Citizens and Taxpayer across this nation and on my state. I saw Americans out of work, hospitals and schools overflowed, and budgets strained. Most disturbingly, I saw my fellow citizens victimized by illegal alien criminals. Innocent Citizens, Police Officers and the murder of Robert Krentz—whose family had been ranching in Arizona since 1907—by illegal alien drug dealers was the final straw for many Arizonans. But there are dozens and dozens of other citizens of our state who had been murdered by illegal aliens. Currently 95 illegal aliens in Maricopa County jail for murder.
Like Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder, most of the hysterical critics of the bill do not even know what is in it. Simply SB 1070 allows Arizona law enforcement officials to detain illegal aliens under state law. The law does not allow police to stop suspected illegal aliens unless they have already come across them through normal “lawful conduct” such as a traffic stop, and explicitly prohibits racial profiling.
Aside from the unfounded accusation and intentional lies of racial profiling, the chief complaint about the bill is that it infringes on federal jurisdiction by enforcing laws. However, there is a long legal precedent going back to 1976 that allows states to pass legislation to discourage illegal immigration so long as it does not conflict with federal law. SB 1070 was specifically designed to mirror federal immigration law to avoid such a conflict.
For all their new-found respect for the authority of federal immigration law, the open borders advocates who oppose SB 1070 have no problems with “sanctuary cities” such as San Francisco that explicitly obstruct federal immigration authorities to protect illegal aliens. In 2008, San Francisco began a campaign to encourage illegal aliens to take advantage of the city’s public services.
Mayor Gavin Newsom stated, "We have worked with the Board of Supervisors, Department of Public Health, labor and immigrant rights groups to create a city government-wide public awareness campaign so that immigrants know the city won’t target them for using city services." The results were tragic. A few months after the campaign, Edwin Ramos, an illegal alien and member of the MS 13 gang, murdered San Francisco resident Tony Bologna and his two sons who he mistook for rival gang members. Ramos had a lengthy criminal record including a felony assault on a pregnant woman. He was arrested on gang and weapons charges and promptly released just three months before the murder. Not once did San Francisco report him to immigration authorities.
One month after the murder of Bologna , illegal alien Alexander Lzaguirre stole Amanda Keifer’s purse and then intentionally ran her over with an SUV, laughing as she hit the pavement and fractured her skull. Four months earlier, Alexander Lzaguirre had been arrested for felony dealing of crack cocaine. Not only did San Francisco refuse to turn him over to immigration authorities, they expunged his record and helped get him a job, which is criminal in and of itself.
Keifer asked the obvious question, "If they've committed crimes and they're not citizens, then why are they here? Why haven't they been deported?"
The answer is that politicians like Gavin Newsom put the interests of illegal aliens before the safety of American citizens, not unlike Mayor Gordon and others.
Our law is working. One can just scan the newspapers and see dozens of headlines like “Illegal Immigrants Leaving Arizona Over New Law: Tough, Controversial New Legislation Scares Many in Underground Workforce Out of State,”
In contrast, American citizens are leaving California . For the last four years, more Americans have left the state than have moved in.
In criticizing the SB 1070, Barack Obama said, “Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others.” There is nothing irresponsible about enforcing our law. Just because President Obama refuses to enforce our law or secure our border and in fact has released thousands of criminal aliens does not mean Arizona should ignore its duty to our citizens.
The solution is not “comprehensive immigration reform,” a euphemism for amnesty as proposed by the Gang of Eight or other Washington Elite or the open border, cheap labor crowd. This will only encourage more illegal immigration. And making illegal aliens legal does nothing to change the social and fiscal costs they impose on Arizona or the nation as a whole. In fact the Heritage Foundation’s research puts the cost of Amnesty at over $2.5 Trillion dollars back in 2007 and now it will be even greater. .
The federal government simply needs to enforce its immigration laws by cracking down on employers of illegal aliens, securing our borders, and deporting illegal alien criminals, without the continuous promises of Amnesty. Attrition by enforcement.
If states understand states rights and our Constitutional duty and responsibility to our citizens this legislation in Arizona will be a model for states across the nation and the federal government, it will end illegal immigration to America , but President Obama is looking towards San Francisco instead.
