Five more states considering Arizona style immigration laws

Bam Bam's sue-ers (even a liberal should be able to figure it out) are going to be berry, berry busy.


The Crime Report » Archive » Other States Considering Arizona-Style Immigration Laws

With wide attention focused on Arizona’s tough new law against illegal immigration — and a measure approved this week in the small town of Fremont, Ne. — similar proposals are under consideration across the U.S., says the Washington Post. South Carolina, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Michigan are looking at Arizona-style legislation, says the National Conference of State Legislatures. NDN, a Washington think tank and advocacy group, said lawmakers in 17 other states had expressed support for similar measures.

The politicians in Sacramento are proposing a state-wide boycott of Arizona by California.
I just wrote my state senator and both my state reps and explained just exactly how unhappy I would be if any of them voted in favor of the boycott or voted in favor of any kind of bill that benefits or supports illegals.
They won't, but they are outnumbered in Sacramento (by racist idiots).

Kinda reminds me of something that happened about 150 years ago.

Source: Administration Weighs Bypassing Congress to Let Illegal Immigrants Stay
By Judson Berger

Published June 24, 2010
| FOXNews.com

The Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security can unilaterally grant legal status on a mass basis to illegal immigrants, a former Bush administration official who spoke with at least three people involved in those talks told FoxNews.com.

The issue was raised publicly by eight Republican senators who wrote to the White House on Monday to complain that they had heard the administration was readying a "Plan B" in case a comprehensive immigration reform bill cannot win enough support to clear Congress.

The White House would not confirm or deny the claim. But the former Bush official said the discussions are real.

"The administration at the very minimum is studying legal ways to legalize people without having to go through any congressional debate about it," the source said, calling the senators' claim credible. "Whether somebody pulls the trigger on that, that's another issue."

The senators -- Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; David Vitter, R-La.; Jim Bunning, R-Ky.; Saxby Chambliss, Ga.; Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.; James Inhofe, R-Okla.; and Thad Cochran, R-Miss. -- claimed in their letter that the administration was looking at extending what is known as deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens in the United States.

The former official said it's unclear what specific avenues the administration is considering, but that one potentially feasible option would be to use either deferred action or parole to legalize at once the millions of immigrants who have overstayed their visas -- not necessarily those who crossed the border illegally.

Deferred action and parole would give illegal immigrants the ability to seek a work permit and temporary legal status.

Those two tools are usually used on a case-by-case basis. The former official said any move to broaden that authority and use it on a mass basis would be "woefully inappropriate," though politically brilliant.

The Republican senators who wrote to President Obama expressed a similar view. They wrote that any unilateral action would "further erode the American public's confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books."

The discussions of blanket legalization come in the middle of several concurrent and heated debates over illegal immigration. The recently signed immigration law in Arizona has divided the country, with some states trying to replicate the state's tough legislation and other jurisdictions boycotting the state in protest. The Obama administration plans to file a court challenge.

Democrats, meanwhile, have been trying to round up support for an overhaul bill in Congress.

Believe it or not similar legislation is actually under consideration in the home state of Scott Brown.

Immigration Reform ... in Massachusetts? | Washington Examiner

Might actually happen - should be an interesting one to watch.

Nothing in NH yet. Shockingly NH made it illegal for state or local officials to enforce federal immigration laws in 2007. Even more strangely, NH has a pretty hardcore conservative and libertarian streak whereas MA has a pretty hardcore liberal streak (or at least it did until this past winter - now who knows where it is).

Very interesting times.

I find it ironic that some of the typical left-leaning happy places are now starting to say "not in MY backyard"...

This has all the makings of a conspiracy theory. An unnamed former Bush official claims to have insight into the secret workings of the current administration and eight senators, republicans all, want an investigation. Yawn.
Fox "news" reported this? Why am I not surprised.

Unknown aides claim General McC made a bunch of derogatory comments about the administration, difference of course is that the General steps down.

Go on, attack the source, that is persuasive

Because it is the truth....

Hmmm..don't you know that certain things only get reported once, and they speak fast at that...For instance it was briefly reported when Sadam was captured that he was being sent to an USAFB in Bharain. That was never even mentioned again..Or the fact that right after 911 the Saudi Royal Family left Saudi and all flew to Switzerland in a fleet of 747's.

It was ever thus.
The concept of "consequences" is foreign and offensive to the average leftie. When confronted with "consequences", they usually change their minds (once they have got over the shock that reality doesn't always mesh with their mental constructs).
