Arizona’s Illegal Immigrant Law: A quick and dirty fix?

Having lost a position that was perhaps the best that I ever was privileged to enjoy, at least in part, because of caring for illegal immigrants. The place simply went broke…

Those that are opposed to the courageous stand taken by Arizona are for the most part simply race baiting, or dislike law enforcement in general.

Here is my quick and dirty fix, and it should pass Constitutional muster as well as show the race baiting segment that it is about public safety, not race.

ANYONE stopped, for anything, would have to have their citizenship status verified. The vast majority of police contacts are traffic related, and most states now require proof of citizenship. Same for state identification cards. Would this add to an Officers burden? How? Every contact get’s ran for wants and warrants and if the drivers license or I.D. is phony somebody is going to the Gray Bar Inn! Make it a state misdemeanor, like Arizona did, in every state to be there unlawfully, and let the feds take it from there. Six months should be plenty of time for them to act. Especially if there were also other related charges.

But, that would probably be to simple a fix for government to wrap their minds around.

    That is an intriguing concept, but what kind of ID could be used to insure true citizenship status? In many instances, there is no proof of citizenship being required to obtain a driver’s license actually, there are places where you don’t even have to be fluent in English.

    Really Maine..? Seems like year before last when all this was starting to explode in places other than border States many passed citizenship requirements, or proof of legally being here. Such as a visa or green card. Colorado and Wyoming do, that I know from personal experience. Maybe I should research that?

    I found all this Maine, most appears to be a few years old, and looks as if ten states don’t require proof of citizenship.

    Thanks for the followup, Patrick.

    Maine has had an idiot for a Governor for the last eight years, one of these “sanctuary” ideologues who actually wanted a law in place that prevented any state agency – including law enforcement – from asking for any documentation of proof of citizenship. Apparently, most other states are not that foolish.

    Still, determining citizenship by use of an all-purpose identification card would be an interesting exercise if left to states to determine what means of ID would suffice, would it not? A Federal ID card would hopefully provide a means, but how many Feds would be willing to deal with that hot potato? But the way things are going, such a requirement (and why not extended to qualify for any and all “assistance benefits”?) would certainly solve some problems.
