I wonder if the administration will denounce these states' efforts before reading their bills

17 States Now Filing Versions of Arizona's Immigration Bill SB 1070.

One of America's national organizations fighting against illegal immigration is announcing that 17 states are now filing versions of Arizona's SB 1070 law which is designed to help local police enforce America's existing immigration laws.

ALIPAC has documented the following 17 states are following Arizona's lead in response to citizen pressure.

ARKANSAS, IDAHO, INDIANA, MARYLAND, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEBRASKA, NEVADA, NEW JERSEY, OHIO, OKLAHOMA, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS, UTAH.

I used to get [unsolicited] e-mails from ALIPAC; I unsubscribed after the group's leader, William Gheen, made nasty remarks about Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina. However, this information from the group is quite interesting: It shows that, despite the Obama administration's efforts to paint AZ's law as "racist," "insensitive" and a host of other typical "progressive" platitudes, Americans are fed up with the federal government's lazy attitude toward securing the border. This attitude led to AZ's new law, and appears is now instrumental in what other states are working on.
