2010 House Bill 6366: Establish “Arizona” illegal alien law and more
  1. Introduced by Rep. David Agema (R) on August 3, 2010, to require state agencies and local governments to verify the legal U.S. residence status of every person who applies for various kinds of welfare benefits, with some exceptions like disaster relief, emergency medical treatment, soup kitchens, etc. Among other things benefit applicants would have to submit an affidavit affirming that they are not an illegal alien. Also, to mirror provisions of a controversial Arizona statute by requiring law enforcement officers and agencies to make a reasonable attempt when practicable to determine the immigration status of any person detained under any lawful stop, detention, or arrest if there is a reasonable suspicion that the person is an illegal alien. Also, to authorize criminal penalties for an alien person who does not comply with a federal law requiring they get an alien registration document and carry it in public.
    • Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on August 3, 2010.

Please point out the article or amendment in the constitution that gives the people the right to enforce immigration laws.

 It's a shame the federal government won't do thier job!  Therefore the Constitution gives the people the right to take over self defense when the federal government does not do what they are elected and paid to do.

Immigration is the responsibility of the federal government, not the states.
