Arizona Defies Federal Government Sovereignty And Enacts State Immigration Enforcement

H. Nelson Goodson calls for "Hispanics to boycott spending in the U.S economy, by limiting their spending to bare essentials only. Limit spending equals Immigration Reform."


State legislators defy federal laws on immigration and passed their own police powers to check immigration legal status of citizens

April 20, 2010

Pheonix (HNNUSA) - On Monday, the Arizona state senate passed SB1070 with a vote of 17-11, giving police officers the authority to determine the legal status of suspects and its citizens. State representatives passed a similar bill last week, and now the bill goes before Governor Jan Brewer for her signature to make it law.
The State of Arizona by enacting its own immigration enforcement laws is no doubt challenging the U.S. government's sovereign power to enact, enforce federal immigration laws, and ensure a judicial due process to determine deportation proceedings against undocumented immigrants.
The federal government even has a U.S. Attorney General's Office in Arizona, but as usual they lack legal action, Constitutional enforcement and accountabilty to challenge Arizona's enactment of state immigration enforcement laws. Arizona's SB1070 by right is unconstitutional and illegal, since the federal government has the reserve right to legislate immigration laws. The federal government has the sole authority to regulate, enact, and enforce immigration laws, according to federal sovereign powers provided by the U.S. Constitution.
Arizona is becomming a rouge state and is following Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's defiance of the federal government sovereign power by enforcing state and local laws regulating immigration.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano and Obama's administration lack any ability to challenge and to void any state legislation deemed to supercede existing federal regulation.
How can this happen today? Well, President Barack H. Obama has elapse in his ability to fulfill his pre-election promise and to push for the passage of the much needed Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity (CIR ASAP) Act of 2009, H.R 432 bill submitted by U.S Congressman Luis Gutierrez (IL Dem.) in December. Today, the U.S. Senate has yet to provide or introduce an immigration reform bill for 2010.
The federal government should act now, and hold the State of Arizona accountable for its defiance to abide by federal laws and the U.S. Constitution. Arizona's defiance of federal laws and to enact its own immigration laws leads to anarchy.
Arizona's SB1070 legislative immigration police enforcement bill is expected to have the same consequences as Lozano v. City of Hazleton anti-immigrant law. SB1070 once enacted by Gov. Brewer, it will likely end up in a costly federal litigation battle.
As a counter measure to create awareness among Latinos, and to help boost the Immigration Reform movement, a stronge message by H. Nelson Goodson, an Immigration Reform activist from Wisconsin was sent out nationally before March 21, for "Hispanics to boycott spending in the U.S economy, by limiting their spending to bare essentials only. Limit spending equals Immigration Reform." The U.S. Economic Boycott would for the first time in history allow U.S. Hispanics to manage their economic buying power, which began on March 21st and lasts until a fair comprehensive Immigration Reform bill is passed.
Every individual and especially Latinos/as are aware of the spending and buying economic power (projected U.S Hispanic $1.3 trillion buying power by 2013) they do have in the U.S. The national shout out or call for action is for everyone who would like to sent a strong message to the U.S. Congress and President Barack H. Obama that we do count in this country and we are very much a part of it, Goodson added.
