Arizona Immigration Bill Is Not Misguided
The bill signed by Governor Jan Brewer will require state police to question people about their immigration status if there is “reasonable suspicion”. The bill takes effect in 90 days making it a crime under state law to be in the US illegally. 70% of likely voters in Arizona approve of the legislation, while just 23% oppose it. In July of 2009, 51% of Arizona voters said it was more important for Congress to pass immigration reform than health care reform. By a 65% to 20% margin, Arizona voters believe enforcing the borders is more important than legalizing the status of those already living here. Half of the state’s voters (50%) think it is possible to put an end to illegal immigration, while 34% do not. Still, Obama called Arizona immigration law “misguided.” Obama must have forgotten States’ rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment of the Bill of Rights. The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) to the United States Constitution, was ratified on December 15, 1791. The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution’s principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states by the Constitution of the United States are reserved to the states or the people. Obama, Mr. Constitution Law, must have forgotten the concept of state sovereignty. The State Sovereignty Resolutions (“10th Amendment Resolutions”) – During 2009, State Sovereignty Bills (“10th Amendment Bills”), Firearms Freedom Act Legislation and Federal Gun Laws Nullification, Medical Marijuana Laws, National Health Care Nullification, Constitutional Tender, “Cap-and-trade” Nullification, State Sovereignty and Federal Tax Funds Acts. The Tenth Amendment is similar to an earlier provision of the Articles of Confederation: “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.” The Tenth Amendment sets forth one of our most cherished rights, and for good reasons. When states and local communities take the lead on policy, the people are that much closer to the policymakers, and policymakers are that much more accountable to the people.
The basis of immigration law enforcement today is the McCarran-Walter Act or the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) of 1952. The INA relied on a national origins quota system with a preference system for Eastern Hemisphere immigrants. The INS estimated that there were 7 million illegal aliens residing in the United States in January 2000. According to INS, 69% of this unauthorized immigrant population was from Mexico. The media usually portrays the plight of the illegal alien in the United States using the historical view of a nation of immigrants. The Immigration Act of 1965 repealed the national origins quota system and all nations were given an equal chance to immigrate to the United States. By way of introduction, immigration law violators are not immigrants. They are Illegal aliens who are in the United States in violation of law. There is a profound difference between individuals who legally apply for admission and fulfill all the requirements for admission, and those who decide to enter the United States, or intentionally overstay their visa in violation of law. Often, the media resists portraying the illegal alien as anything but the hard working border-crosser that simply wants to feed his family. Although the American people have said, in poll after poll after poll that they favor decreasing the number of legal immigrants coming to America, the current U. S. bill has the potential to more than triple the number of immigrants becoming US citizens over the next 20 years from roughly 19 million to 66 million. A lawfully admitted alien must undergo health screening and will not be admitted if found to have a communicable disease. George Bush sent only 6,000 Guardsmen, for one year, and then decided not to allow them to actually apprehend anyone. “Last year the House Immigration Reform Caucus estimated that at least 36,000 Guardsmen would be needed” to adequately cover the border.
Most common immigration problems:
• getting permission to stay in the UK/USA/other country longer than you originally intended
• getting permission to do something which you are not at present allowed doing, for example, being allowed to work
• bringing relatives into the country, for example, a spouse, fiancé (e), children
• being threatened with deportation from the UK/USA/other country
• being held by the immigration authorities in a detention centre
• wanting a passport and not knowing whether you are entitled to a UK/USA/other country passport or some other passport
• wanting to apply to become a UK/USA/other country Citizen
• if you are already living in the UK but wanting to travel (for example, for a holiday), whether you will be allowed back into the UK/USA/other country
• whether you are entitled to use state services or claim benefits, for example, education, health services, council housing, social security benefits, housing benefits, council tax benefit
• the right to vote
• a relative or friend being refused entry to the UK/USA/other country when arriving at an airport or port.
So far the current U.S. Senate Bill Would Make It Impossible To Deport Most Illegal Aliens For Years. Illegals and their families who file applications for amnesty shall not be detained, determined inadmissible, deported, or removed until their applications are finally adjudicated, unless they commit a future act that renders them ineligible with amnesty. With tens of millions of applications, this amnesty, this provision essentially guarantees an illegal alien years of protection in the United States, even if they do not qualify for the amnesty.” — Jeff Sessions. According to Ed Meese, the current Senate bill would actually prevent police officers from arresting anyone based on the fact that they’re in this country illegally. The Senate rejected an amendment by Senator Isakson that would have prohibited the implementation of any guest worker program that grants legal status to those who have entered the country illegally until the Secretary of Homeland Security has certified to the President and to the Congress that the border security provisions in the immigration legislation are fully funded and operational.” — Jim DeMint. The current senate bill forbids the federal government to use any information included in an application for amnesty in national-security or criminal investigations.” — National Review. That means if any terrorist were to apply for citizenship and mention on the application that he was currently living in New York, it would literally be illegal to tell the FBI. Illegal aliens who have been in the U.S. for more than 5 years would be given citizenship; those who have been here between 2 and 5 years would receive foreign worker cards with a path to citizenship; those here for fewer than 2 years would allegedly go home.
Since 1924, when the Border Patrol began enforcing the immigration laws, enforcement policies were mostly concerned with agricultural labor and politics. The Bush administration has been trying to sell a guest worker program as a way to decrease pressure on the border by bringing workers here legally. Thousands of illegal aliens are gathering on a daily basis in known locations throughout the United States in order to be picked up by potential employers for a day’s work. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 was signed into law by President Reagan and included amnesty for aliens who could establish residence in the United States since January 1, 1982, employer sanctions aimed at removing the lure of employment, and a special exemption for aliens employed in agricultural work. Under the AgJOBS component of the substitute, illegal alien agricultural workers who have worked 150 “workdays” in agriculture over the last 2 years will receive a “blue card,” allowing them to live and work permanently in the U.S. The AgJOBS amendment specifically states that recipients of “funds under the Legal Services Corporation Act” shall not be prevented “from providing legal assistance directly related to an application for adjustment of status under this section.” Not only will AgJOBS give amnesty to 1.5 million illegal aliens, it would have the American taxpayer pay the legal bills of those illegal aliens. Although the INS has statutory authority under Title 8 USC Sec. 1357, and designated officers or employees of the Service have the power without warrant to interrogate any alien or person believed to be an alien as to their right to be or to remain in the United States, the INS simply ignores this obvious opportunity to remove illegal aliens from the United States. The official policy of the INS, now Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (BICE), is to target employers of illegal aliens in an attempt to remove the reason why illegal aliens come to the United States. This policy evolved out of the employer sanctions included in the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986. Illegals get an option to only have to pay three of their last five years in back taxes. Law-abiding American citizens do not have the option to pay some of their taxes. Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Colombia, Honduras, China, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Philippines, Brazil, Haiti, India, Peru, Korea, and Canada (USINS, 2003) are the top 15 sending countries accounting for 89% of the total illegal alien population. 84% of Arizona Republicans and 69% of voters not affiliated with either major party in the state favor the new legislation. 60% of Democrats and 57% of unaffiliateds are concerned that the law may lead to possible civil rights violations against U.S. citizens.
