It seem that Arizona will not be alone in this fight to stop illegal-immigrants from coming into the United States. Maybe if Obama would do his job of securing our borders then such laws would not be needed. I feel that Obama is again using the border issue to corrupt America just as he’s using the BP oil spill to cut off drilling for our own oil. The more I see of Obama’s actions the more I think he’s not doing anything that will better America and doing everything he can to tear our great Nation down.
Florida Republican leaders have begun crafting anti-illegal-immigrant legislation modeled after an Arizona law.
Under the proposed bill, police would have broad power under state law to ask suspects for proof of legal residency, said Rep. William Snyder, a Republican from Stuart who plans to introduce the legislation in November.
“We have significant components from the Arizona bill that I plan to incorporate,” he said. “We have the beginnings of it.”
The effort, which would be filed for consideration during the March legislative session, is already drawing broad support within the GOP.
Majority leaders in the Florida Senate and House said a new approach is needed to address the federal government’s failure to temper illegal immigration.
