Panel endorses local immigration enforcement bill - KVOA News 4, Tucson, Arizona - (http://www.kvoa.com/global/story.asp?s=10506331 - broken link)

Quote:
PHOENIX (AP) - A committee of the Arizona Senate has approved a bill that would criminalize the presence of illegal immigrants in the state.

The bill would expand Arizona's trespassing law to let local authorities arrest those who sneak into the country. It also would allow people to sue city officials who limit the full enforcement of federal immigration law.

..........and, the hammer continues to fall

I suspect that the bill will pass since we already have the employer sanctions law which even the 9th Circuit Court has not seen fit to strike down.

I'd like to see this bill passed in all 50 states. I particularly love the part that allows people to sue city officials in sanctuary cities who limit the full enforcement of federal immigration law.

What are you talking about? Arizona has already passed many of the same and they STUCK. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/03/us/03arizona.html
Oklahoma filed 1804 which the Feds can't or won't stop.

Flip side: if local and/or state laws do not conflict with Federal law--------the former will usually stand in a Court of Law.

Otherwise; why do different States have varying ordinances?
