Those who rail against Arizona’s effort to deal with the more than 500,000 individuals in that state illegally either have not read the law or are blinded by their politically correct ideology.
Far more verbiage, in addition to an executive order from the governor, in the law is devoted to protecting ALL individuals’ constitutional rights, state and federal, than to determining one’s immigration status when there is “reasonable cause” to question it.
Further, the “reasonable cause” doctrine has been thoroughly and repeatedly vetted in state and federal courts over many decades. Police are held to a “reasonable cause” standard in any number of actions. The rules are clear and are biased toward protecting individuals’ rights.
It is encouraging that a sizable majority of Americans see the logic in Arizona’s approach. Those who rage from their platforms of political correctness, including our president and congressional majority, would do well to face the facts and follow Arizona’s lead.
