Gov. Brewer signs AZ illegal immigration enforcement bill…

As Gov Brewer said at the signing, AZ has requested Federal assistance from Obama 5 times with no result. We do not have the money to call up the National Guard for our border and the police need the ability to enforce the immigration laws when they encounter criminals. In addition to the international drug smuggling rings committing violence, all it takes is one terrorist crossing the border to endanger the entire country.

Pinal County Sheriff spoke about the crime epidemic this morning:

Back in the saddle again: AZ Illegal Immigration enforcement bill passes legislature, to Gov. Brewer for signature…

We covered this legislation when it passed the State Senate here. It has now passed the state House and goes to Brewer to sign.

We have covered the Obama rollback of Sheriff Joe’s 287G enforcement authorities here.

This legislation helps restore and clarify that Sheriff Joe is indeed carrying out the laws of Arizona when he is enforcing illegal immigration violations.

WSJ has it:

Arizona lawmakers on Tuesday passed one of the toughest pieces of immigration-enforcement legislation in the country, which would make it a violation of state law to be in the U.S. without proper documentation.

It would also grant police the power to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being illegal.

…Under the measure, passed Tuesday by Arizona’s lower house, after being passed earlier by the state Senate, foreign nationals are required to carry proof of legal residency….

…The bill is different from an earlier version, giving protections for church and community organizations from criminal prosecution for transporting or harboring illegal immigrants.

In a statement, Tuesday Rep. John Kavanagh (R-Fountain Hills) called the measure “a comprehensive immigration enforcement bill that addresses the concerns of our communities, constituents and colleagues.”

“This updated version gives our local police officers the tools they need to combat illegal immigration, while protecting the civil rights of citizens and legal residents.”…

…The bill in some ways toughens up a situation that the Obama administration had tried to roll back. Under a program known as 287g, some local law enforcement agencies were trained to enforce federal immigration laws by checking suspects’ immigration status.

Mr. Arpaio, the Maricopa county sheriff, had been one of the most aggressive enforcers of 287g. However, the Obama administration in recent months has sought to scale back that program, and had reduced the resources it made available to Mr. Arpaio’s office and others.

Sheriff Joe can get comfy being back in the saddle again enforcing the law…

J.D. Hayworth on Obama Agenda, economy, spending

J.D. left his radio show to run against John McCain for AZ Senate. J.D. was my CongressCritter at one time and although we disagreed about everything then (height of my liberal-ness, lol) he always took the time to write me a personal response addressing my specific concerns. Big points for that in my book. Not sure what to expect from the GOP primary now that Sarah and Scott Brown are coming to town to campaign for MAC.

Update 5: Brewer signs parts of budget: brings back equalization property tax…

Update 5: 9/4/09 4:41pm AZ Time: Well with 1 day to go, Jan Brewer has signed off on parts of the budget and not others, we lost a great chance at tax cuts, Brewer is polling lower than “anyone else” literally, so her numbers cannot get much worse, but this really sucks:

If the election were held today, when given the option of Jan Brewer, or anyone else on the face of the earth as Arizona’s next Governor, voters opted for the latter, according to a poll released Monday.

The local political consulting group that conducted the poll, The Summit Group, found that only 18 percent of Arizona voters would cast their vote for the execrated chief executive, in contrast to 46 percent, who say they would vote for just about anyone else…

She allowed the comeback of the property tax, great for residents and commercial interests right now eh? and she vetoed spending cuts again. She did not get her sales tax ballot referral but she seems to be ‘bitterly clinging’ to the idea:

PX Business Journal:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer OK’d portions of state budget bills Friday, but she nixed a permanent repeal of a $250 million property tax on businesses and residents. Brewer’s move upset business and real estate advocates who want the state equalization rate gone. The property tax was temporarily repealed in 2005, but will come back without action.

The Legislature has blocked the sales tax increase vote, and Brewer could call another special session to try again on that front. The state budget should have been done July 1. The governor also nixed some education cuts in the budget bill she signed off on Friday.

…“The whole concept of taxing our way into prosperity, as Winston Churchill once said, is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. Let’s face it, everyone knows that increased spending and taxes are the worst possible option in this economy,” said Lawless, whose group has been a major proponent of getting rid of the equalization tax…
