The New Colossus Poem by Emma Lazarus: Posted on the Statue of Liberty 1903 Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
SB 1070-Arizona Immigration Law 2010
Currently any law enforcement officer may check on the legal status of a person suspected of a crime, but with SB 1070 it will be mandatory for law enforcement to check. SB 1070 does not make it mandatory for the police to arrest illegal immigrants. The law stays silent about this issue, leaving it up to the officer to determine just cause. Anyone arrested cannot be released from custody until Arizona police check with federal agencies on the status of the arrested person. Arizona police are not required to submit illegal immigrants to federal authorities. There is a rarely enforced federal law from 1940 called “willful failure to carry an alien registration form”. It’s punishable as a misdemeanor crime and will now be enforced in Arizona. Legal residence have nothing to worry about with this part of the law as they cannot be arrested for not carrying “papers”. Arizona does not consider this “racial profiling”, however border patrol has special leeway when it comes to considering race. Courts will later decide if this permission will be extended to officers as well. SB 1070 makes it illegal for illegal immigrants to work, does not allow them to solicit work and does not allow anyone to hire illegals. It is also illegal to aid an illegal immigrant to travel or hide in the United States. The only exception to this rule is if you are driving them to school or to a hospital. Arizona says this portion will be adhered to in a very honest way by judging someone’s intent in aiding illegals versus helping them to a hospital or school.
