Arizona takes chutzpah to new levels:
The Arizona agency tasked with training 15,000 law officers to enforce the state’s controversial new illegal immigration law has asked federal authorities for assistance, but administration officials say it is unclear whether the government will help.
Lyle Mann, executive director of the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board, says federal assistance is “critical” to what he describes as an unprecedented effort to prepare officers as soon as this summer to enforce the law, which gives local police authority to identify and arrest illegal immigrants.
How about this for an answer? NO.
You guys want a police state, pay for it yourself. You probably should have thought about this before you all passed the idiotic bill in the first place. Maybe we can get Bart Stupak to write an amendment to something mandating that no tax dollars can go to insane policies like this?
And speaking of Stupak, look what Arizona has done now:
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer isn’t going to pander just to the racists in the Right wing, she’s also going to target women. Arizona has become the first state to limit abortion coverage in the state’s future health insurance exchange.
And some people get pissed off if you say “American Taliban.”
