It’s really only an enforcement law, for laws already on the books. In case you haven’t, you can read or download the entire text of Senate Bill 1070 here. As with most legislation, the politicians depend on people not reading the bills … Like the Democrats health care rationing bill for communists — Yes it will cost you more, yes it will ration care, and yes they withheld those things before the vote so you wouldn’t no and they could exploit you. But back to the latest fraudulent lame stream media generated outrage …
Consider just these paragraphs of the bill:
NO OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE MAY ADOPT A POLICY THAT LIMITS OR RESTRICTS THE ENFORCEMENT OF FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAWS TO LESS THAN THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY FEDERAL LAW.
FOR ANY LAWFUL CONTACT MADE BY A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE WHERE REASONABLE SUSPICION EXISTS THAT THE PERSON IS AN ALIEN WHO IS UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES, A REASONABLE ATTEMPT SHALL BE MADE, WHEN PRACTICABLE, TO DETERMINE THE IMMIGRATION STATUS OF THE PERSON.
Article 8, Section 11-1051, Paragraph A, B
Consider a law enforcement office must first have “lawful contact.” “Reasonable suspicion” must exist that the person is here illegally. A “reasonable attempt” is all the officer can make to determine the immigration status of the person and then, only when “practicable.” So how is that racism, discrimination, or anything else the leftists are saying it is.
It enforces federal and state existing law, that’s it.
We used to do this in Florida, trained our deputies in federal immigration law enforcement, and then Obama by executive order prohibited our LE from doing it anymore. Why?
