AZ Immigration Bills to watch
December 28th, 2011
Enforcement by Attrition: Lower taxes, lower crime, smaller class sizes, shorter emergency room lines, jobs for Americans, higher wages, etc.
SB1160, vehicle title; registration; legal presence (Supported by law enforcement)
SB1172 schools; data; noncitizen students (We ought to know the real number so we know the cost to the taxpayer)
SB1173 public housing; legal presence (No illegal alien should be allowed to have taxpayer subsidized housing – Prop.200 in ‘04 forbid it and was never enforced)
SB1175 illegal aliens; enforcement; trespassing. (Stop all sanctuary policies – remove handcuffs from law enforcement – Supported by law enforcement, Republican Party, and others)
SB1177 unauthorized aliens; employment; application; transporting (a good fix to the day labor problem)
SB1334 workers’ compensation; unauthorized aliens (simply cannot get paid if hurt on the job, the employer is responsible)
SB1335 unauthorized aliens; licensing ( an enhancement to the Employer Sanctions bill)
SB1337 driver license violations (Makes it a misdemeanor to not have a driver license; a law enforcement request and just puts it back to how it use to be, does not affect a person that has one, but does not have it on them)
“If it be asked, what is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be an inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws” – Alexander Hamilton.
I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO ONCE AND FORALL ALLOW OUR POLICE OFFICERS TO ENFORCE OUR LAWS.
I have the support of Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (P.L.E.A.), Border Patrol, Maricopa County Republican Party, Arizona State Republican Party (both passed Resolutions unanimously to support this legislation), Sheriff Joe, County Attorney Andrew Thomas, and according to the polls over 75% if Arizona Citizens , POSSIBLE APA, AZCOPS AND THE FOP ALSO.
WHY DO WE STRUGGLE WITH WHAT IS RIGHT? Officer Shane Figueroa’s and Tracy’s (Highland High student) death were preventable. (I have two boys in law enforcement, one with the Sheriff’s Office and one son is a Gilbert Police Officer) We must work on legislation that I have introduced 4 years in a row to allow Police Officers to enforce our laws.
SB1175: Removes all sanctuary polices and would allow officers to arrest those in this state in violation of federal law. Our citizens deserve no less, our law enforcement have the authority, and we must allow them to do their job.
My personal background in law enforcement has given me a unique and in-touch perspective with the needs and hazards experienced by rank-and-file police officers. I’m delighted to have PLEA’s support and the Border Patrols support in eliminating all policies the restrict law enforcement from enforcing the law. Like me, PLEA understands the danger of ignoring illegal immigration. The burden of blind-eye police department policies and open-border philosophies were paid for with the lives of not only PLEA members, but other law enforcement personnel throughout our state. The danger clearly spread beyond law enforcement into our communities with more lives being lost. The quality of life in our state is being sacrificed for political correctness. PLEA, Border Patrol and I stand side by side for the rule of law.
MARK SPENCER President of P.L.E.A., “Mark my words another police officer will be killed as a result of Mayoru Gordon’s pretended revision of their policy on when you can ask and when you cannot ask on one’s immigration status. ANOTHER POLICE OFFICER, HUSBAND, FATHER, AMERICAN KILLED BY AN ILLEGAL ALIEN. GOVERNMENT IS COMPLICIT IN THE DEATHS, MAIMINGS AND BILLIONS IN COST TO OUR CITIZENS.
Simply enforce our laws and you will see less crime, lower taxes, smaller class sizes, shorter lines in our emergency rooms and reduce deaths, murders, maimings, drugs, home invasions, car jackings, kidnappings, jobs taken from Americans, reduced wages, an ultimately save the taxpayer billions of dollars. We cannot afford to “NOT” enforce our laws. Attrition by Enforcement.
THE “ONLY” LAW WE PUT CONDITIONS ON BEFORE A POLICE OFFICER CAN ENFORCE, THE ONLY CRIMINALS WE PROTECT BY POLICIES!!!!!!! NO OTHER CRIME OR CRIMINAL GETS THIS PROTECTION BY RESTRICTIVE POLICIES BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS. And what is worse, it is illegal under federal law to do so.
Citizens have a constitutional right to expect the protection of federal laws which prohibit unauthorized activities by non-citizens and are denied equal protection law enforcement, police department or magistrate fails to enforce those laws.
I PLEDGE; TO WORK TO ELIMINATE ALL SANCTUARY POLICIES IN THIS STATE, THE RESULT WILL BE LESS CRIME, LOWER TAXES.
A misunderstanding of the relationship between federal criminal and immigration law causes one to believe being present in the U.S. in violation of immigration law is civil and “not a crime” and is clearly wrong. The enforcement role given to local government by the Constitution and the Congress is clear. Unsanctioned entry into the United States is a crime.
Assistant Attorney General Kobach explained that the inherent arrest authority of states arises from their pre-constitutional status as sovereign entities. The powers retained by the states at the time of ratification proceeded “not from the people of the United States, but from the people of the several states,” and remain unchanged, except as they have been “abridged” by the Constitution. The authority of a state to arrest for violations of federal law is thus not delegated; but “inheres in the ability of one sovereign to accommodate the interests of another sovereign.” This federalism-based analysis has a strong judicial pedigree.
Arizona is #1 in crime; we have become the kidnapping, home-invasion, car-jacking, identity-theft capitol of the world. Enough is enough. Just enforce our laws. Attrition by enforcement, it will work.
Law enforcement can no longer sit on the sidelines while our neighborhoods are invaded, our healthcare systems are over-run with illegals that have no means to pay and receive their healthcare at the expense of the taxpayers, our education system is imploded (over $1 billion a year in just k-12 alone, jobs taken from Americans, wages suppressed, and the destruction of the rule of law.
In 2000 there were an estimated 600,000 illegal aliens in Arizona alone and that’s a conservative estimate. Arizona voters are paying hundreds of millions of dollars each year for illegal aliens, providing medical care for them and subsidizing their living expenses and much more, then the crime that comes with the illegal alien invasion.
Gangs follow illegal aliens By Jon Ward THE WASHINGTON TIMES May 5, 2005.
Zogby poll: Americans fed up on illegal aliens 81% think local police should help feds.
The TIME report exposed a growing crime network. Now operating in 33 cities,
MS-13 gangs rob, kill, distribute drugs and run prostitution rings while being protected by sanctuary policies. Our Governor supports those “Hands Off” policies by our law enforcement. She vetoed a bill that made it clear they could and should assist in the enforcement of our immigration laws as
1996 federal law intended.
These cities with their sanctuary laws and the federal government are co-conspirators in that they won’t enforce the law. There are over 4,000 murder warrants out, just in the Border States, for people who’ve committed murder and fled to Mexico. You wonder how many more people have to die…
A landmark Supreme Court decision: In Muehler v. Mena the Court reinforced the clear intent of Congress in this matter, inquiring about an individual’s immigration status can and should be a routine part of ascertaining information, no different than asking questions about one’s name, or date and place of birth.
Aggrieved residents may sue in state or federal court to block unlawful municipal passive resistance policies (so called Sanctuary Policies), and may sue officials and employees in their official or private capacities for violations of their rights. Local government officials do not possess Eleventh Amendment immunity or qualified immunity when sued in their official for prospective injunctive or declaratory relief to end statutory and constitutional violations.
“Harboring” includes any conduct that tends to substantially help an alien to remain in the United States unlawfully. Criminal liability for harboring or sheltering could arise from acceptance of a Mexican Matricula Consular – which, presented without proper immigration documents, is prima facie evidence of illegal alien status – by a local government agency that , for example, provide housing or utility assistance, made referrals to a public or private job assistance program or detained Matricula presenters for violation of city ordinances and release them without verifying their immigration status with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Sheriff Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have a proven track record of enforcing our immigration laws and not caving in to political correctness.
I PERSONALLY WANT TO THANK SHERIFF JOE AND COUNTY ATTORNEY ANDREW THOMAS FOR HONORING THEIR OATH’S OF OFFICE, PUTTING AMERICA FIRST AND GOING AFTER ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS (HB2745 IT’S THE LAW) AND ARRESTING THOSE WHO ARE HERE ILLEGALLY; POLICE HAVE INHERENT AUTHORITY AS IF IT WERE WRITTEN INTO STATE STATUTE. ARIZONA WILL NO LONGER BE A SANCTUARY STATE FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS OR FOR ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS.
NO JOBS!! NO FREE STUFF!! NO SANCTUARY POLICIES!! NO MORE IGNORING THE DAMAGE, THE COST, THE CRIME, THE DEATHS, THE JOBS TAKEN, THE WAGES LOWERED, THE HEALTHCARE CRISIS, THE EDUCATIONAL IMPACT OF OVER 20% OF K -12 ARE NON-ENGLISH SPEAKERS, AND MOST WILL LEAVE ON THEIR OWN. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
INSTEAD OF BLAMING THE FEDS CLEAN UP OUR ACT AND TAKE THE HANDCUFFS OFF FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT. WHEN ARE WE GOING TO DO OUR JOB????.net
“This country has lost control of its borders. And no country can sustain that kind of position.” – President Ronald Reagan
We are a nation of laws. We must have the courage – the fortitude – to enforce, with compassion but without apology, those laws that protect the integrity of our borders and the rights of our lawful citizens.
Another Police Officer killed a Sanctuary City. We must eliminate ALL sanctuary policies in this state and support our Law Enforcement and eliminate these illegal policies that prohibit a police officer from asking about one’s legal status and allow them the discretion to arrest and book into Sheriff Joe’s hotel and hold for ICE.

Theodore Roosevelt’s: AMERICAN in 1907… ” this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Study: 1 million sex crimes by illegals; More than 100 sex offenders crossing border daily Deborah Schurman-Kauflin: Based on a one-year in-depth study, a researcher estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each.
Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute in Atlanta analyzed 1,500 cases from January 1999 through April 2006 that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.
Most offenders were in states with the highest numbers of illegal immigrants. California had the most offenders, followed by Texas, Arizona, New Jersey, New York and Florida.
I hope the following 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them. I have included the URL’s for verification of the following facts:

If this doesn’t bother you then just delete the message, but on the other hand, if it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, then forward it.
