The Arizona Republic
Apr. 12, 2005 12:00 AM
Saying that Arizona has become a haven for undocumented immigrants, state Republican lawmakers on Monday revived a bill giving police officers the power to arrest and deport anyone living here illegally.
Republican Rep. Russell Pearce of Mesa successfully used a strike-everything amendment to Senate Bill 1306 in the House Appropriations Committee, which he chairs. A strike-everything amendment is a maneuver in which one bill replaces the contents of an existing bill.
SB 1306 authorizes local police officers to investigate, arrest, detain or deport immigrants here illegally, including transporting them across state lines to detention centers. Certain Arizona cities like Phoenix prohibit the practice in such cases as routine traffic stops and domestic-violence calls.

I would love to see this put into place. Unfortunately, this bill as well similar bills have in the past been introduced but havve died due to opposition. I am sure such agencies such as LULAC will be strongly up in arms against this bill and once again defeat it.
I agree that something like this need to be put into effect unfortunately in today's society, I do not see this happening anytime soon.

A bunch of radical illegals trying to protect other illegals known as the League of United Latin American Citizens

Careful there, LULAC might decide to charge you with being a racist and by extension, everyone on this board that participates in the discussion. Of course to any organization like LULAC and MeCHA any discussion or action that they percieve as "against them" is a "racist" action.

While a judge may have been respnsible for stalling the implementation of the proposition, it seems that it was actually the governor that caused it to be dropped completely.

I get the feeling that Americans will loose on this, and promot National ID cards or some such.
