Barack Obama Slams Arizona Anti-immigration Bill – Barack Obama stepped in today to give some insight about the new anti-immigration laws that Arizona wants to bring forth that would give the state the toughest laws regarding immigration in the entire United States. It started just last week when Arizona State lawmakers decided to pass a bill that would allow police to stop, question and even arrest anyone in Arizona that looks suspicious and is suspected of being an illegal immigrant. This would give policeman the power to act on their gut feelings and ask anyone in Arizona to show proper identification.
Obama spoke about the plan during a White House ceremony. He said that this plan is misguided and not organized. President Obama is ordering administrative officials to investigate whether or not this is actually constitutional to implement into Arizona laws and if it was too close to threatening civil rights.
There are some democratic leaders in Congress that said that they were looking into immigration reform and that the matter would be addressed as early as next month. This would put the matter ahead of what is already there to be addressed, climate change.
