Default SB 1070 May give legal status to more "illegals"

As it turns out, undocumented migrants may be granted temporary legal status as a result of the AZ bill. Sometimes for as long as 5 years. Some may be granted citizenship.

Immigration Law Loophole May Keep More Illegals Here (http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/news/immigration/immigration-law-loophole-5-19-2010 - broken link)

"During that period you are entitled to a work document. You can travel all over the U.S., go to any employer you want. It is a win-win situation for an immigrant who is picked up," says Gibbons.
So it appears there may be a benefit to getting picked up by the cops.
"You have folks who were living in the shadows and if they go through the system like this, if they are eligible... they are in fact perfectly legitimate."
Russell Pearce, the man behind SB 1070, told the Capitol Times: "It will save us hundreds of millions of dollars. That's good for the taxpayer. The benefits so outweigh [the work permits]."

Quote:
Right now, federal immigration courts are backed up so severely that it can take as many as five years to schedule trials for illegal immigrants who challenge deportation, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities are so overloaded that thousands of illegal immigrants are released back into Arizona each year to live and work while waiting for a deportation hearing.
More than 5,100 illegal immigrants who were processed through federal immigration courts in Arizona were released from custody on bond in 2009, and the vast majority were eligible for work authorization documents, although precise figures were not available.
In some cases, illegal immigrants may be granted some form of relief, including permanent citizenship, after they’ve been turned over to ICE.
.....

Last year, federal judges granted legal residency to 29,000 illegal immigrants nationwide. In Arizona, more than 3,600 immigration hearings were initiated by an application for relief, and more than 900 illegal immigrants were granted temporary residency or permanent citizenship.....
Quote:
Illegal immigrants who are released on bond may receive temporary work visas that are valid for one year. In many cases, the one-year visas are extended several times due to the backlog in federal immigration courts, which have been overcrowded for years because there are only five immigration judges in the state – three in Phoenix and two in Tucson.
Already, final hearings in cases are being scheduled for 2013 and beyond. During that time, the immigrants released from custody are able to stay in the country and work legally.

Simple solution to this problem in the court is to do away with immigration court all together.
These low lifes came here illegally so why should they have the benifit of our legal system?
They shouldn't PERIOD.
Send them packing as soon as they are detained .

This is not good at all.

I wonder how many will take the legal residency/permanent resident path? It's said they have no interest in being an American.

See what happens when you ignore a huge problem such as illegal immigrants for so long? They eventually win either way, and we are stuck with them forever.

Illegal aliens should be turned away at the border (and secure the border!) in the first place so they will be less likely to infect America. National Guard should intercept and kick their asses back into Mexico.

How about setting up a STATE run immigration service and hire unemployed Arizonans? Maybe that will take the load off ICE and speed up the deportation process.
