The States’ Battle to Take Back Immigration Reform From Uncle Sam

The federal government has always maintained jurisdiction over the laws surrounding immigration. However, states around the country, such as Arizona, are making state-level reforms.


August 28, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ — The federal government has always maintained jurisdiction over the laws surrounding immigration. However, states around the country feel that the Obama Administration is not combating the problems associated with immigration and thus forcing them to pass their own laws. Numerous states have introduced bills, but Arizona is the first to take the lead at passing a real state-level immigration law. However, Arizona’s attempts at passing their own law have hit a roadblock after a federal district court judge issued an injunction against the state’s measures.

Arizona’s Immigration Law

Arizona is the most recent state to take immigration action into their own hands by passing a state-level law to tackle the influx of illegal aliens entering the state. On July 28, 2010, U.S. District Court Judge Susan R. Bolton issued an injunction to block enforcement of certain provisions of Arizona’s new immigration law. One day before originally expected to take effect, Judge Bolton declared sections of the law invalid.

Sections Judge Bolton invalidated include:
– Requiring police to check an individual’s immigration status if he or she reasonably believes the person is an illegal immigrant, even if stopped for other reasons
– Detaining illegal immigrant suspects until their legal status is verified
– Allowing warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrations
– Criminalizing immigrants who refuse to carry registration papers

Immigrants pay taxes!
“Whenever they purchase a good or commodity, in a way they are paying taxes as well.”
“It also has been mentioned in the data that illegal immigrants make use of their ITIN number for filling their taxes, so this shows they are responsible.”

No, wait, they don’t!
“Moreover, they never pay taxes.”

That’s a very broad assumption, isn’t it, that illegal immigrants “never pay taxes”? Especially when the article just said that they do pay taxes… Hmmm, contradiction much?
