Arizona bill 1070

Earlier Friday, Obama called the Arizona bill "misguided" and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Shove it feds.
If AZ wants to get Washington's attention, all they have to do is to start shipping busloads of illegal immigrants to DC, offload them in front of the Capitol building with a Mariachi band and a big banner that says "Welcome Amigos to your new homeland!" in Spanish and English.

They could also invoke Article I, Section 10, Paragraph 3:

No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

They could simply declare war with Mexico if they had any balls at all.
Arizona bill 1070 struck down by the Supreme Court

srsly jim? suffice to say
we are gonna crack down on them illegals
and let everyone carry guns
shoot em up in the Wild Wild West!

Nah just kidding our coloured President
aint’ gonna allow any of it.

How fucked up has this country become when
allowing law abiding people to bear arms
and doing something to stop an illegal foreign invasion
is considered Un-American?

just you wait and see

Woe be unto you!
Clinton is right. Those damned Conservatives spreading violence and hatred.

Oh, wait. They are Conservatives when they are in Mexico. Once they cross the border they become violent, hate spewing Liberals.

My error.
Arizona bill 1070 is all American

Go on and read Jimmy's link.
All it does is enforce Federal laws?
Arizona bill 1070 will be struck down in the courts

but they are gonna ram thru an immigration bill Right?
Mmm Mmm Mmm
There has go to be a limit on the treasonous stupidity coming out of Washington. They may feel they have nothing to lose, unlike in '06 when the attempt was defeated, because they know they have no chance in 2010 & 2012.

I imagine secession will become a reality the more they push....

Actually... this new law is the one that's unconstitutional. The 14th
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

If a person is not committing a crime, there should be no reason to stop them on the street..and certainly nothing requiring them to provide 'papers' proving their citizenship. "Suspicion" alone is insufficient.
Sure thing... prove that a person is there illegally BEFORE you arrest them.
That's the kicker...the presumption of innocence. That's what is being overlooked here.
Sorry, reasonable suspicion of xxxxxxx. DUI check points ask to see your license with no reasonable suspicion all the time.

If the person is speaking German and wearing European clothing it would reasonably easy to conclude that may not be an American.

Many states require you carry an ID anyway.
