Ariz. immigration law splits police - Crime & courts- msnbc.com


"It requires police enforcing another law to verify a person's immigration status if there's "reasonable" suspicion they are in the U.S. illegally.
Several Arizona police chiefs and sheriffs say, as hard as officers try not to profile, enforcing the law will inevitably lead to it. They say it will end up taking time away from solving crimes in their cities and towns.
"When you get a law that leads a state down this path, where the enforcement is targeted to a particular segment of the population, it's very difficult not to profile," said Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris, a critic of the law.


On Monday, police bosses from Maryland and Nevada condemned the law, saying that it could suck up vital resources and destroy delicate relationships with immigrant communities if implemented in their own states.

Police Chief Thomas Manger of Montgomery County, Md., in suburban Washington said he doesn't have the resources or the desire to enforce federal immigration violations by people who aren't disrupting the community.
"If they're not committing a crime here, frankly, I'm not sure how it enhances public safety to target those people for removal," he said."

And the propaganda and BS just keeps rolling along.

What a load of crapola! Apparently they donít consider gangbangers and thieves as being disruptive. The Montgomery County police are prohibited from asking immigration status from anyone other than those arrested for committing violent crimes. Illegals can deal drugs, shoplift, prostitute, commit ID theft, and a host of others crimes, as long as they arenít violent.

And the point? As stated, they see no reason to disrupt those not committing a crime, well the law doesn't! Sheesh! Some are just "thicker than others".

So stealing health care, welfare, food stamps, overwhelming teachers/school districts, jobs, driving up taxes isn't "disrupting the community"????

The Illegals have divided this Country, not some law.




Did this LEO grow up with the same mindset as the "Well, I didn't kill anyone" group? So long as no one dies it's ok? If we can't enforce our laws why have any? We could save a lot of money and it could be just like the old West.

Bingo. On 1 hand you have those on the left complaining that cops read to much into the laws they are paid to enforce. Then when it suits the left they say cops are over whelmed.
Drive by the doughnut shops, conv. stores and what do you always see?
At least 1 cruiser parked out front. Hmmmm Maybe a few less coffee breaks and the resources problem will be resolved.
I am not buying that lame excuse for 1 minute. They stop a car for a moving violation. The driver speaks no or little English. What resources are involved in asking for legal status?

Well who could have expected or anticipated that police chief Jack Harris of sacturary Phoenix who holds his job at the discretion of the amnesty democratic mayor phil gordon would be a critic of the law? But then Jack Harris will now have to get up off of his ass to enforce SB1070. It's a much easier job being a police chief in a sanctuary city isn't it?
