|WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ILLEGAL ALIENS THAT SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN THE U.S.?
MIAMI-DADE COMMISSIONERS VS. THE FACTS
The Resolution stated the commissioners were “opposing the State of Arizona’s recently adopted law (Senate Bill 1070) relating to the enforcement of United States immigration laws; requiring, among other things, that aliens at all times carry an alien registration document and providing law enforcement officers with the right to determine the immigration status of an individual upon ”reasonable suspicion” that such person is an illegal alien; and urging the President of the United States and the United States Congress to expeditiously reform the nation’s immigration policy to provide for uniform immigration laws.”
On section 1, they urged “President Obama and the United States Congress to immediately begin the process of reforming the nation’s immigration policy, so as to provide for uniform immigration laws throughout the United States. This Board also urges the Arizona State Legislature to immediately repeal SB 1070.”
|DID THE COMMISSIONERS READ THE ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW (SB1070)?
ARE THEY FAMILIAR WITH U.S. LAW?
● SB1070 mirrors the federal law that since 1940 requires aliens to carry their documents with them.
For 70 years, federal law has required non-citizens in this country to carry, on their person, the documentation proving they are here legally — green card, work visa, etc.
The U.S. Federal Law: 8 USC 1304(e) states:
● Section 2 of the Arizona law (SB1070) specifically states that police, “may not consider race, color or national origin” in making any stops or determining immigration status.
