Illegal immigrants and their allies on the left are chaining themselves to doors and using race-baiting emotional hysteria to pressure Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) into retreat as she deliberates on the state’s ground-breaking new enforcement bill.
Brewer only has until Saturday to determine whether she will side with the foreign criminals bankrupting Arizona’s schools, crowding their prisons and compromising public safety at every turn or law-abiding immigrants and the American people.
As I have noted, voters overwhelmingly support building a border fence, reject sanctuary cities and think illegal immigrants are a major strain on the economy (see here, here and here). And 70% of Arizona voters support this legislation.
According to Human Events, this bill (SB 1070):
*Makes it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to complete and carry an alien registration document.
* Allows officers to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they are in the U.S. legally.
* Bans soft immigration enforcement and sanctuary rules by local governments and allows lawsuits against policies that hinder immigration law enforcement.
* Prohibits day laborers from impeding street traffic while seeking work.
* Outlaws the transport of illegal immigrants to further their unlawful presence if drivers know the passengers are in the country illegally.
