Parts of that illegal immigration law – by the 9th Circuit Appeals Court. Imagine my surprise.
At least now this issue just may step up into the realm for SCOTUS involvement.
And ABC News seems to agree. However, an excerpt:
A central provision of the law requires police officers to ask for immigration papers if they have a reasonable suspicion that the person they have stopped, detained or arrested is in the country illegally.
Sounds suspiciously just like the 287G program that County Sheriffs enter into withe I.C.E.
So it sounds to me that Arizona has replicated that program to be workable for the state.
I fail to see a problem here, that is, other than the blatant poliitics on the part of DOJ.
