Controversial immigration law of Arizona moving forward
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/13/2012 -- After going through a heated debate on a national level, surviving a United States supreme court ruling, and two years of continual state politics, the most controversial part of the law for Arizona immigration is finally one step away from taking effect.
Arizona’s stringent immigration law under the name ‘Show Me Your Papers’ gives provision to a police officer to ask a person for his papers if he finds reasonable doubts that someone is living in the country illegally.
After hearing about the implementation of the strict immigration law, the sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County said on Thursday that it leaves us in a very grey area. “It leaves us in a very, very, very, extremely grey area. So now we get sued when we do profile, and we get sued if we don’t profile.”
The immigration law was signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer earlier in 2010; however the law was largely ignored even months after its implementation. Brewer praised the ruling yet again and said that the law should be enforced effectively and efficiently.
According to the immigrants right advocates, one of the main reasons of the law being ignored was that it seems to address a problem which does not exist. A representative from the American Civil Liberties Union also stated that although part of the law was implemented before it had no impact whatsoever in practice.
Omar Jadwat, a legal representative for immigrants rights at the American Civil Liberties Union believes that the ruling will cause serious problems with racial profiling and unlawful detention, which is why he is going to pursue all options on the table to get immigrants their rights.
