Other states taking cue from Arizona law
Legislators call feds 'AWOL' on 'invaders'

Quote:
A controversial law passed in Arizona giving state and local police the right to arrest anyone reasonably suspected of being an illegal immigrant is catching on nationwide, with lawmakers and others in several states considering similar legislation.

Concerned about the federal government's failure to secure the nation's borders, legislators and political candidates from Georgia to Colorado have introduced bills to beef up local immigration enforcement, have promised to do so or said they would support such legislation if offered.

It's been rather evident for a long time that if any real effective enforcement of immigration laws was to be done it would have to be at the state's level, not at the dysfunctional fed level. We've had nothing but dog and pony shows for as long as I can remember. Just enough enforcement to show that some enforcement is being done, but never any effective enforcement, on purpose. At least 13 states, but probably a lot more, are watching closely to see how this plays out. When states realize that this is exactly what type of law that needs to be passed to force the dysfunctional fed gov into immigration enforcement action, watch out.

The federal government should be ashamed and embarrassed that our states are having to takeover the job that they have failed to do.

The fed gov should be ashamed and embarassed but somehow obviously doesn't seem to be. This dysfunctional fed gov is much more pissed off at the temerity of the states to come in and upset their playhouse.
