Calif. penal code pertaining to immigration section 834b similar to Ariz.’s SB 1070
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.
Sorry I found this funny. And it’s even funnier that Los Angeles is boycotting Arizona for following suit to California. Better yet, is the fact that everyone is in an uproar over this law when the similar California law has done little to change anything. I don’t believe that the AZ law is going to fix anything. I also don’t think it’s going to make anything worse. What it has done, from a marketing stand point, is attract everyone’s attention.
Don’t mind me, I’m just the bug guy.
