Because it goes against Progressive world order, that the Democratic party and a few Progressive Republicans have adopted as their agenda.

well sure, I understand that but why write new laws (with the exception of anchor babies) if we can already arrest and deport?

We don't need new laws except for the fact that the federal government is refusing to enforce it's own laws. Immigration has become a free-for-all and is completely out of control. Anyone who likes can come here, have no job skills or education and can easily access the many welfare programs and demand citizenship as a reward. The federal government is refusing to do anything about this - except demand that taxpayers be given tax increases to pay for all these free services for the illegals.

The way it works is that you pretty much have to commit a felony to be deported. Sheriff Arpaio will turn over illegals to ICE but most of them go free. The Feds need to pull their head out of the ground.

In some counties in Arizona, the sheriff won't use the federal laws to deport illegal immigrants so the state law had a section in it where citizens could file suit if local law enforcement any where in the state was enforcing the new state law....of course that's if it had gone into effect as planned at the end of July. Sheriff Joe does crime sweeps where he has arrested illegal immigrants and handed them over to ICE but, although he has a lot of critics, the sheriff from Pima county....down at the border....has deported way more illegal immigrants than Sheriff Joe has. If you don't know, Sheriff Joe is the sheriff of Maricopa county....which is Phoenix, in the middle of the state. The sheriff from Pima county was against the new law because he's happy with the way he does it now and felt the new law would only tie him up with law suits from citizens.

It is probably time for the states to sue the federal government for failing to enforce it's laws in any meaningful way. And if the illegals are the problem of the federal government then the states need to sue for the money it requires to provide for them. All state and local money spent on education, health care, jails, court costs, food stamps, should be reimbursed by the federal government which insists that the illegals belong to it.

But that's just moving the money from one room to the next, it's still taxpayer money funding illegals so it doesn't make any difference.
