This is the kind of stuff people in Arizona have to read about day in and day out.

Please explain exactly how SB 1070 would have stopped this.

(Please explain exactly how SB 1070 would have stopped this. )

Several ways. If this person who smuggled the children in was pulled over with a van full of children, the officer would have suspected they were illegals being smuggled, especially when there was no documentation for the children because you now need a passport or other "papers" to cross the border.

However, since our wonderful judge determined that it's "unconstitutional" for state officers to ask for papers of people they suspect of being illegal (even though federal law requires that they carry them with them at ALL TIMES)...the officers are powerless to do anything.

So....immigrants will continue to be smuggled in, abused, tortured, and raped at the hands of the smugglers.

Always good to have people who don't live on a border state telling AZ that they are racist for wanting to stop this abuse. Even better to have our own President relay that message then proceed to sue the state.

(No, they aren't allowed to stop any just any minivan, with a brown person driving, because.....well.......they are brown. They actually have to be stopped for a reason.)

It's not because they are brown...it's because there are way too many people crammed in a minivan. The police know what smugglers look like. They deal with them on a daily basis.....and guess what??? THEY ARE BROWN. THEY ARE HISPANIC!

Funny, I have to be subjected to unreasonable search when I fly. I am assumed guilty and packed with explosives. But guess what....I am NOT MIDDLE EASTERN. I AM NOT MALE.

Perhaps anyone who is driving a minivan on a known human smuggling route with their van packed with people should be assumed guilty too. Perhaps THEY should be assumed to be smuggling illegals....just like I am assumed guilty when I fly and it is assumed I am loaded down with explosives.

SB1070 wouldn't have stopped this at all. Officers are certainly allowed to investigate if a van full of that many children was pulled over. The current laws allow that even without SB1070.

No, you are wrong, they are pretty much helpless to do anything.

Here are the parts of the law that didn't go into effect:

Really? Your state can't do anything about a van crammed full of Mexicans if they pull them over?

They do it all the time in Texas.

I bet your state has recourse, also.

<< I am NOT MIDDLE EASTERN. I AM NOT MALE. >>

There have been many female bombers, you know that right?

I sense alot of anger from your posts. I'd hate to have that much anger inside me, day after day. Much less over politics, or who's paying for one single illegal immigrant.

The way you throw around "liberals" this, or liberals that, in such a manner... it's one of the reasons I pretty much left this board. So much hatefulness isn't good for anybody to read daily.

You "sense" this? LOL. BTW...."a lot" is two words....not one.

(The way you throw around "liberals" this, or liberals that, in such a manner... it's one of the reasons I pretty much left this board. So much hatefulness isn't good for anybody to read daily.)

Can you please show me where I am throwing around "liberals this or liberals that" on this thread? The only person bringing up liberals is you. If you do not feel like discussing important issues that affect our country, you are free not to.

Just because somebody wants to discuss an issue that you disagree with does not make them "hateful". If you don't like reading things that are going to make you upset because you disagree with them....then you probably should not read them. Or stick to boards where everyone agrees with everyone else and they don't debate anything.

Calling people "hateful" and saying they are full of anger because you disagree with their views is certainly not very civil, IMO.

Can you please name one female terrorist who bombed a plane? TIA. As far as I know, there have been NO females to do this.
