Make no mistake the Arizona Bill SB 1070 is not a bill that will penalize only illegal immigrants but also lawful residents and even US citizens. Indeed just using mere “reasonable suspicion” to stop someone will definitely amount to abuses.

In my opinion, reasonable Suspicion will be applied based:

1. Your Race;

2. Your Voice Accent;

3. Color of your skin; and so on.

In such cases, any US citizen or non citizen will be a target. Residents (Citizens or non citizens) will have to walk with a copy of their legal presence. It will be a hurdle for everybody who is even doing business with Arizona.

Hopefully, this law is found unconstitutional. Until then, many are going to suffer especially people of color. This, in my opinion, make it almost a “racist” bill!!!

I will probably advise my clients not even to dream of going to Arizona for a vacation. So will I!!!

The United States has stand tall among a diversity. Allowing one state to make such a law is against the principle of our beliefs. Remember the 14th Amendment:

Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

May God help us. We need to take a stand against this law!

Arizona’s new immigration law is unconstitutional

Not all of it will be thrown out by the courts, but the most controversial provision has to be. Here’s why

AP/Matt York
This April 14, 2010 photo shows Arizona Governor Jan Brewer at the Capitol in Phoenix. Brewer has called for more troops along the state’s border with Mexico on Thursday, April 23, 2010, two days before a deadline for her to approve or strike down the nation’s toughest legislation on illegal immigration.

Minutes after signing the nation’s toughest illegal immigration law, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was asked about her confidence in its ability to withstand a legal challenge. Even the most complex legal wars begin with public relations battles, and the question provided the governor a good opportunity for a first strike — a full-throated defense of the law’s legality. She passed.

“Well, you know,” Brewer said, “it’s probably going to survive, I think, i-i-in most areas.”
