Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a controversial law into effect today which requires police officers to inquire into a person’s immigration status.
According to MSNBC:
The legislation, sent to the Republican governor by the GOP-led Legislature, makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It also requires local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants, allows lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws, and make it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them
President Obama has taken strong issue with the law which is the toughest immigration law in the United States.
How does this law seem to differ from the Resolution signed right here in Prince William County?
Is this the job for local police?
