Arizona Immigration Law: Gov Jan Brewer Law Change – Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is reportedly considering changing the state’s immigration law that has received tough criticism from around the nation.
She had signed the law, and is currently appealing a ruling that blocked the most controversial sections of the legislation. Now, she said that she would be willing to make a few minor changes to the wording of the law if it would appease the court and allow the law to go through. Brewer maintains that she is only looking out for the best interests of the state, and that the federal government is not doing its job when it comes to immigration.
“We believe the law is constitutional,” Brewer told the associated press. She also went on to say that she thought that the judge raised some valid points in her ruling that she would be willing to fix and address to help the law get pushed through.
Bolton delayed the areas of the law that required officers to require immigration documentation from individuals that they deem as suspicious. If these individuals do not have their proper documentation on hand, they would be taken down to the station to ensure that they are legally in the country.
The law has caused intense debate around the country in recent months, and has spawned several protests for and against the bill. In polls, the nation has been virtually split down the middle on the subject and it has increased the amount of attention that the topic of immigration has received from the current white house administration.
