Arizona's New Immigration Enforcement Law has been criticize by a number of people including Gibbs, Holder, Napolitano, and Obama without them having fully reviewing it. It may even be considered at least a partial success with Illegal Immigrants planing to leave the state over it. Wit the Arizona legislature making some 'fixes', their critics may be vindicated. It all goes to if you perceive the changes as clarifications or as important changes to the law.
"In recent days, some critics of the new Arizona immigration law have said the measure will lead to Arizona becoming a police state. Many of the criticisms — some including the words Nazi and fascist — have been based on a general objection to the law and to the enforcement of the country’s immigration laws. But some have been specifically focused on a few key phrases in the law.
Now, Arizona lawmakers have made some changes intended to clarify their intent and, perhaps, silence some of the critics. The changes were first reported by Phoenix television station KNXV, better known as ABC15.
The first concerns the phrase “lawful contact,” which is contained in this controversial portion of the bill: “For any lawful contact made by a law enforcement official or a law enforcement agency…where reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States, a reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person…” Although drafters of the law said the intent of “lawful contact” was to specify situations in which police have stopped someone because he or she was suspected of violating some other law — like a traffic stop — critics said it would allow cops to pick anyone out of a crowd and “demand their papers.”"
