Arizona SB1070 was signed into law by Arizona governor Jan Brewer on Friday and that's all fine and good for the magical land of Arizona and their sweet, racist dreams, but now comes the reality: It's unconstitutional. Why? Not because of racial profiling, though there's that, too.
The Federal Government Has Sovereignty Over Our National BordersRight from the start, this little exercise should have never happened because the state of Arizona simply has no jurisdiction. For some people who are so in love with The Constitution, they sure do pick and choose the parts they love. But, hey. The Republicans needed some kind of dog and pony show to trot out in front of voters to woo them back to their failed party, so, fine. You did your lap dance, but now you have to walk out into the club parking lot in the cold, light of day and face facts: Local and state government cannot create laws that presume to override federal laws already in place for such matters. There is precedence. Most recently, (and this is one of many cases thrown out by Supreme Courts all over the country), in the shithole of Farmers Branch, Texas--that's outside Dallas, y'all--the Texas Supreme Court struck down housing legislation created to prevent landlords from renting to illegals. Why? You can't legislate that shit, Jim Bob. Why? Because y'all's racist. That's why the federal government makes immigration a federal decision, so EVERYBODY not just you and Suzie Mae and the boys at the local, volunteer fire department get to weigh in. Because America has a little experience with those who purport to defend "state's rights." It's called the Civil War. And it was about racists who wanted to keep their slaves. (By the by, the Farmers Branch case was the city’s third attempt at passing an ordinance of that type. The experiement has cost residents about$3.2 million in legal fees to defend. According to the ACLU, ordinances have been overturned in Riverside, NJ, Valley Park, MO, and Hazelton, PA.)
"Governor Brewer, Can You Explain To Me, What Does An Illegal Immigrant Look Like?"Now that we have the clearly unconstitutional part down, let's deal with the little matter of how exactly an Arizona peace officer is going to decide whether someone they've LAWFULLY pulled over, (no one is going to just pull over more brown people than white people, of course), is probably an illegal alien. What are the criteria? Well, that greased pig has been thrown in the yard of the Arizona Peace Officers Standards and Training Board or AZ POST. Governor Brewer has made an executive order that they will figure out how to take this lame-brain idea and make it not seem racist. She would have been great in corporate America.
Watch Governor Brewer Drop This Hot Turd In The Lap Of The AZ PostThose poor bastards, lead by a Mexican, no less, are charged with the unenviable task of writing a document that can only lead to death threats from vatos locos. They have to answer the question that leaves even the governor speechless. What does an illegal alien look like?
"Uh, ugh, I do not know."If governor Brewer is too politically terrified to touch that reporter's question with a ten-foot pole, how is it that anyone is going to be able to write a description of an illegal alien with which the majority of Americans, (since this is federal territory, remember), agree? Now let's say, for shits and giggles, that everyone doesn't agree. And we end up with a case of racial profiling on our hands. Then what?
Only The Federal Government Can Legally Racially ProfileEven though the Patriot Act of 2001 gives the Attorney General the ability to detain foreigners without charges for an infinite amount of time, that power does not extend to the state of Arizona. Once again, because the AG has to prove that the suspect poses a national threat and the State of Arizona is not authorized to make such a charge, the best they can do is hand these folks over to the feds, which is the system that was already in place anyway. You retards.
