I agree with you that it needs federal enforcement, which will truly highlight the problem our Federal government has in enforcing the Laws it had created for our National Security.
Arizona's bill will help push the Federal government to do its job that its own LAWS were designed to, if it fails to do its job even after Arizona's actions....Come NOVEMBER the Federal Government is going to be looking a whole lot different.
Who needs to hire immigrant officers? In fact we need to fire the current one, IMHO. We need to bring our national guard back into the states and stand guard at the border. Like their name " N A T I O N A L G U A R D" implies.
The government is too big, so they need to dismantle this phony ICE program who are very selective on when they want to enforce. We already have men like Sheriff Joe "The Main Man" and there are many more like him willing to do what needs to be done.
Racially Profiled? Is that phrase ever going to be put to rest by the naysayers of the LAWS. If you want to call the supporter and enforcers of the LAW "Racial Profilers" because they are enforcing the LAW so be it. That argument holds no water for the criminals that are here and deserve to kicked out of this country. Come here legally and don't tread on our laws.
Yes government out of the lives of private LEGAL US citizens so they don't meddle with me financially, in health care, by what I eat, & by how I express my dissent.
I suggest you get with the PROGRAM or GET OUT OF THE WAY.

I don't see how this bill has no authority.
If anything it makes the federal agencies, i.e. ICE, do their jobs. Which is a good thing.
