Trying to enforce federal immigration laws to control the flow of illegal immigrants into the State of Arizona, combating illegal immigration Arizona enacted Senate Bill (SB) 1070 that prevents undocumented illegal immigrants from entering Arizona’s borders. According to the Arizona Republic, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved hiring an attorney to represent the county in the U.S. racial profiling lawsuit against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the county.
In 2010, the Federal government and the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Arizona’s controversial Senate Bill SB 1070 immigration reform that grants the power to regulate undocumented immigrants. Arizona’s attempted rightfully to grant local law enforcement agencies to enforce the law that requires immigrants to carry registration identification at all times and permit’s law agency to question whether immigrants are undocumented. This law also targets businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
The Justice Department argues that Arizona’s SB 1070 is “invalid.” The immigration law had unfound claims that Latinos were harassed because of their illegal alien status. The Latino community continues to avoid the truth that there are laws against unlawful entry. Instead hiding behind deportation, stay in the U.S. using Birthright Citizenship as a tool and amnesty hoping that the mastermind behind fronting immigration, La Raza block laws that target illegal immigration.
The original Senate Bill law was authorized in early spring 2010 after Arizona officials argued that they needed state law to deal with the growing crisis of unauthorized immigration crossing into Arizona state borders then moving abroad. In my opinion, Arizona has the right to curtail any illegal entry across state lines. Arizona enforcement of the provisions of the law that required local police check the immigration status of anyone they detain during an investigation.
The lawsuit against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the county stems from accusation of racial profiling in lawsuits filed by the Justice Department alleges that Deputies arrested and detained illegal immigrants without justification because they were Latino. The lawsuit indict that this practice is discriminatory and unlawfully violates Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, Civil Rights Act and Arizona Constitution.
The Department of Justice investigation notified the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and Arpaio that they were investigating the department for civil rights violations, in unfairly targeting Hispanics. The Department of Justice found cause to believe that the county violates the U.S. Constitution and its laws.
In 2005, Arizona passed immigration enforcement law making it punished by two years in prison for illegal aliens crossing Arizona state borders, while already a federal crime, Arizona’s law made it legal for local police to enforce immigration law and also classified persons being smuggled subject to penalties as laid out in the law.
The attorney hired by Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to defend itself in the U.S. Department of Justice’s racial profiling lawsuit against Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio, listed the county as one of three defendants. The outside firm was recommended as a highly skilled attorney for having federal experience in complicated lawsuits involving the federal government.
The county outside lawyers will defend its county government, the lawsuit in the racial profiling case from the Justice Department accusing sheriff’s deputies of discriminating against Latino residents.
Arpaio continue to instruct his sheriff office to arrest illegal aliens in spite of the federal lawsuits filed against his office and the county. Denying any wrongdoing and stated in the past and more recently “he welcomes the investigation” despite the actions from the federal lawsuit, Arpaio has maintained that he will still pursue illegal aliens under Arizona state law known as the “Coyote Law.” As of today 2012 he continues to do so.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has the hones to pursue illegal immigrants fighting preventing undocumented illegal immigrants from entering Arizona’s borders, catching the illegal’s that roam the State while fighting against the feds, the Justice Department and the Obama Administration for not doing their jobs according to the Constitution. I say Kudos to Sheriff Arpaio.
