The New Arizona Immigration Law

(a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.

Wait - did you think that I somehow accidentally copied and pasted the wrong state's name in the statute above?

No. . .

Because this really IS the first paragraph of the California Illegal Immigration law, California Penal Code 834B.

So, not only have California officials NOT fully read the new AZ Ilegal Immigration law, but they are shamefully and completely ignorant of their own law!

Am I crazy, or is this totally hypocritical and beyond ridiculous?  Boycotting a state because of a law that is remarkably close to their own?

I wonder if they will back off with their boycotts now???

P.S. - Further investigation that I failed to do previous to posting the article above found that CA Penal Code 834B was rendered unenforceable by the judiciary process.    This penal code was a provision attached to Prop 187, which was overwhelmingly approved by voters in 1994.  A restraining order was issued by Fed Judge Matthew Byrne only days after it was passed, and  Judge Marianna Pfaelzer later made the injuction permanent.

So much for the will of the people, right?

I am really beginning to think that reading the laws on the books and understanding what they say as well as reading and understanding the Constitution of the United States is something our current leaders on both state and federal levels simply don't/can't/or flat out refuse to do.

Ridiculous, right?

Remember CA, a boycott works both ways.

when are the progressives and political left going to realize we are awake, we can read and we are not going to be duped?

My hubby heard that AZ had a "gotcha" moment with California by threatening to re-negotiate their utility contracts. Turns out a high percentage of the electricity comes from AZ. Brown outs anyone?

Good grief. I don't understand the logic people are using to discredit this law.

I know right???

I cannot wrap my brain around the logic of many on the left. And especially the ones in postions of power, who have NOT EVEN READ THE BILL.

Disgust grows daily

But CA is so comfortable ignoring our own laws. After all, if a law falls in the forest and nobody enforces it, is it a law?

Is it treason for peace officers and politicians NOT to enforce laws?
