    Report: 25 states considering Arizona-style immigration laws

    An immigrant-rights group has released a report (PDF) predicting that 25 states may try next year to pass anti-illegal-immigration laws similar to Arizona's controversial legislation.

    The number of states considering legislation modeled after SB1070, the bill that Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law this spring, is apparently growing: Earlier, pro-enforcement groups said 22 states were considering the bill, the Washington Independent's Elise Foley notes.

    The new efforts are going forward even after a federal judge ruled key parts of the Arizona law unconstitutional and enjoined its enforcement in Arizona in July. That decision is now under appeal before the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court.

    Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma and South Carolina are most likely to pass a similar law next year, the new report says. Tennessee, Utah, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Texas, Arkansas, Indiana, Colorado, Virginia, Minnesota, Missouri, Idaho and Kansas made the report's "maybe" list. In Maryland, Nevada, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio and Rhode Island, the legislation is seen as less likely to pass.


    The report notes that from 2006 to 2008, municipalities passed a host of local laws and statutes cracking down on employers hiring illegal immigrants.

    This next wave of legislation, the report says, will be aimed at getting local law enforcement to check immigration status in routine police stops, as SB1070 mandates.

    Lawmakers may be influenced by how the Ninth Circuit rules on SB1070, and how the Supreme Court rules on the state's 2007 employer-sanction law passed. Finances may also influence local politicians' decisions, as more immigration-related arrests and court battles end up costing cities and counties that adopt such rules.

    One industry stands to benefit from such laws. In Arizona's case, the private prison industry helped guide the process that made SB1070 law and even gave the legislation its name while working with legislators, NPR reports. Thirty of the cosponsors to SB1070 later received money from the private prison industry or its lobbyists.

    I think in some of these states were looking at a political dog and pony show. If they were serious about cracking down, they'd simply cut off state funding to all sanctuary cities and towns, and the fed couldn't do anything about it. Here in assachusetss immigration is a non issue. English is becoming a second language here.

    And the idiot liberal A-hole we have in the office of Attorney General says "Technically it's not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts"...

    Oh that is just frigging jolly!!! More ridiculous gun laws proposed (H 4102) yet they allow the illegals to flourish here unchecked. We need the guns to protect ourselves from them!!

    Getting close to election day, keeping the energy level up...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    It would be my honor to meet you. I started being an activist years ago with a group from Framingham marching on the federal building in Boston when they were bringing the immigration reform act up for cloture. We coordinated with groups like SOS and ALIPAC and others, and actually crashed the switchboard at the Capitol building. But that led me to the discovery of bigger fish to fry, and weeding through miles of muck sorting it all out. I think what this state needs is some ... what's Obama call it? "Community organizing?" Ya. That's what I am. A community organizer.

    Always looking for like minded people.

    I'm not sure what my mind is like, but by the "tone" of your posts I think there is some common ground.

    You're closer to the city correct?

    That is what I want to be, a community organizer, Obama made a lot of money doing that.

    I can smell the city when the wind blows nor east.

    I was being facetious about being a "community organizer." The (conservative) equivalent to that is nothing Obama would be happy about nor consider funding.
