Legal residents of Arizona are granted the option to sue if they feel a local agency’s policies interfere with the enforcement of federal immigration law. It makes it a criminal offense if an individual picking up a day laborer interferes with the normal flow of traffic. The law does not allow an undocumented immigrant to search for work in any public place. These are merely a select handful of issues within SB 1070. Once this law was announced, there was an enormous public outcry of opposition.
President Obama criticized the bill shortly before Ms. Brewer signed it. The Arizona law, he said, “ threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and our communities that is so crucial to keep us safe.”(New York Times). It has raised many issues that the law is unfair and the legislation leads to racial profiling. The bill does not list the characteristics officers will be looking
amount of support from a short-handed Supreme Court Wednesday. States throughout the country considering their own tough immigration laws are closely following the proceedings over what has become a thorny issue. Fed up with illegal immigrants crossing from Mexico -- and what they say is the federal government's inability to stop it -- legislators in Arizona passed a tough immigration law. The federal government sued, saying that Arizona overreached. "If, in fact, somebody who does not belong in this country is in Arizona, Arizona has no power?"
Ban the Arizona Immigration Law The law I propose is to have the Arizona Immigration Law banned and repelled. Illegal immigrants come to the United States for the good life and start fresh, but thinking about it more and more illegal immigrants are going to fill the United States without even knowing the laws or language, which is why we need to ban the Arizona Law. This law is needed because it subjects plenty of ethnic groups and races to public discrimination and racism, which violates the rights of citizens (Americanized citizens). Like how the schools will lose state funding if they offer any courses that "promote resentment of a particular race or class of people or is designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group
Betsy Jimenez English Composition II Ms. Bonnie Lee January 7, 2013 Immigration, Arizona SB 1070 “Mexican Americans were dispossessed very much of their land and subject to discriminatory treatment in every aspect of their lives: in employment, in housing and in education. Overt discrimination is probably worst in Texas, where the state law enforcement agency known as the Texas rangers has long had a well-deserved reputation for brutality toward Mexican Americans”(Daniels, 314). History has proven to repeat itself throughout the years. As we grow stronger as a nation we have been pushing those who have helped us create America to the borders of embarrassment. By allowing racial profiling to be practiced, the Arizona immigration law
Finally, President Obama wants to prevent the exploitation of illegal immigrants by giving employers a dependable way to verify citizenship status (“Immigration Reform”). I am in favor of this reform because I do not believe people coming to this country in search of a better life should be punished because of our inadequate immigration
Fixing Illegal Immigration in the United States Illegal immigration has been a problem in the U.S. for many years. Many would argue that illegal immigrants should be removed from our country, or become a legal citizen. Illegal immigrants have also caused lots of problems in the U.S. There are many ways that illegal immigrants can, and should be dealt with in the United States. A good plan to get rid of illegal immigrants in the U.S. will remove illegal immigrants in a very feasible way, and would not cost our country a fortune.
Immigrants have Rights Too: Immigration in the U. S. Today, Mexican immigrants are seen as a bigger threat than a murderer by Americans citizens. However, immigrants who come to the U.S. are not here to cause problems they are here to support their family. Americans who fear immigrants are afraid that immigrants only want to take the American jobs that they feel should only go to American citizens. David K. Androff, assistant professor in the School of Social Work at Arizona State University and Kyoko Y. Tavassoli, also in the school of social work as a 4 year doctoral student at Arizona State University published “Deaths in the Desert: The Human Rights Crisis on the U. S.–Mexico Border” addressing the many issues Mexicans immigrants face coming to the U.S., specifically the effects in social work. Their article addresses various points about the issues with Mexican immigrants and jobs dealing with the Mexican border.
Article Rebuttal – Against Removing Illegal Alien Amnesty Kubani L. Brown BCOM/275 12/22/2014 Charles Cattermole Article Rebuttal This country that we live in and are all apart of was built from the ground up by immigrants. There are however people and organizations out there that have forgotten this fact. They feel that this country does not need any more immigrants and that they are hurting our country economically. Hurting Americans Dan Stein, President of FAIR(Federation for American Immigration Reform) stated that, “There is no justification for an illegal alien amnesty, no justification for adding new guest workers at a time when so many working Americans are hurting, and there is never any justification
There are immigrants who wish to obey the law. They applied for visas long before the throngs who are now demanding rights. It's time for those lawbreakers to start at the back of the line, too.”( Alfonso) I believe he is right and that this is uncalled for and in truth against the American value of no discrimination regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity. Yet, these illegal immigrants have the audacity to say that they are in the right, and that they should not be screened and deported back to their country. In the article Immigrant activism taking a bold turn, there are many discussions on how illegal immigrants are boycotting businesses that
