Does it allow law enforcement to do anything they can't already do? Sheriff Dupnik of Pima County claims "Pima County Sheriff's department already has the authority to arrest illegal immigrants. He says they've arrested more illegal immigrants -- and turned them over to the border patrol -- than any other law enforcement agency in the state." (see article)

However, he doesn't cite the basis for those arrests. On the other hand, he does cite an interesting concern that should at least share the forefront of anyone who wants to combat illegal immigration using legitimate means:

"What they've done in the process by giving us this new law is put us in a damned if we do, damned if we don't situation when it comes to civil suits," says Dupnik. (see article)

Oh yeah, references are from Sheriff Dupnik calls SB 1070 unnecessary | Fox 11 | KMSB Tucson | Local News (http://www.fox11az.com/news/local/Sheriff-Dupnik-92428474.html - broken link).

I don't have experience on what those civil suits are, but in opposing illegal immigration, I do not want to leave the government more liable by attaching something unnecessary and poorly worded to the burdens they already shoulder.

On the flip side, it's a good thing that something is being done to shock the system, draw attention to the immigration problem and reflect the urgency of the need to address it now, rather than continuing with the dangerously ambiguous status quo.

Maybe silence is the answer
