CA Similarities to AZ Law Penal code 834b vs. SB 1070

Well here is an interesting bit of info

 (a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully
cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization
Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is
suspected of being present in the United States in violation of
federal immigration laws.

   (b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected
of being present in the United States in violation of federal
immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the
following:

   (1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen
of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent
resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time
or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of
immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall not
be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and
place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding
documentation to indicate his or her legal status.

   (2) Notify the person of his or her apparent status as an alien
who is present in the United States in violation of federal
immigration laws and inform him or her that, apart from any criminal
justice proceedings, he or she must either obtain legal status or
leave the United States.

   (3) Notify the Attorney General of California and the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service of the apparent illegal
status and provide any additional information that may be requested
by any other public entity.

   (c) Any legislative, administrative, or other action by a city,
county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity with
jurisdictional boundaries, or by a law enforcement agency, to prevent
or limit the cooperation required by subdivision (a) is expressly
prohibited.

  1. CA Penal Code 834B specifies status checks “After Arrest” per FEDERAL law. In fact its based on FEDERAL standard already in existence. Arizona Senate Bill 1070 specifies “Legal Contact” or “Legal Stop”. This is a HUGE difference, and HUGE Legally!

    Any citizen of the US can rightfully refuse inquiry as to citizenship prior to “actual arrest” per federal law. If you exercise this right in Arizona, the officer asking for the information can arrest you per SB1070. That is a violation of FEDERAL civil rights law, thus SB1070 is unjust.

    The REAL problem in this country are the EMPLOYERS that employ undocumented workers, thus creating the demand, and the “coyote” human and drug traffickers at the border. SB1070 does NOTHING to address either of those problems.

    Its not the innocent migrants fault he wants a better life for himself, his family, and future generations. It was the same for Irish during the Potato Famine, Italians & Germans during and Post WWII, etc etc. Its always the immigrant that takes the blame for trying to better themselves through the AMERICAN DREAM.

    • I love how you refer to “immigrants” “migrants” by throwing around those words, you omit one little point. This debate isn’y about immigration, it’s about ILLEGAL immigration! Big difference. Now I realize some people don’t think there’s an issue because the US is really just part of Mexico, but unfortunately the WORLD recognizes there IS a border.

  2. YOU SAID IT RIGHT. “THE AMERICAN DREAM” SO BECOME AN AMERICAN FIRST. WHAT PART DON’T PEOPLE UNDERSTAND ABOUT ILLEGAL ????

  3. “The real problem in this country are the employers … and the ‘coyote’ human and drug traffickers at the border. SB1070 does nothing to address either of those problems.”

    Actually, SB 1070 addresses both those problems. For example, section 7A starts, “an employeer shall not knowing employ an unauthorized alien.” Section 4A begins, “it is unlawful for a person to intentionally engage in the smuggling of human beings…”
