What are hold the other states that are considering immigration laws to pass it?

Why aren't more states passing immigration laws? Are they waiting to see what going to happen to Arizona and Alabama and the states that already did?

    Nearly 250 new immigration laws and resolutions were enacted in 40 states during the first half of 2011

    By comparison, only 38 immigration laws were enacted by states in 2005.

    *Ten states enacted legislation requiring businesses or contractors to use the government E-Verify program to ensure the legal status of workers.

    *Five states -- Alabama, Georgia, Utah, Indiana and South Carolina -- enacted omnibus laws inspired by Arizona's 2010 law, which gave police the power to enforce immigration. All have been challenged in court.

    * 19 states passed 38 laws addressing law enforcement.

    *Three states - Alabama, Kansas and Utah - passed voter ID bills dealing with immigration.

    So really they arent holding off, 250 laws doesnt sound like holding off to me

    They are waiting for the Supreme Court. It's funny how many people think Obama is against the constitution on this - since it clearly states that immigration is under the purview of the federal government. But what happens when the feds fail at their responsibilities? It's a constitutional question that isn't nearly as clear as the "Obama hates the constitution" crowd has been led to believe.

    properly, if the detractors of the regulation might spend a million/2 as lots time reading this regulation (SB 1070) that they spend regurgitating the leftist echo chambers speaking factors, then they might are responsive to this is not a racist loose for all as has been defined. There are clean regulations defined interior the regulation governing who could be seen "suspicious" it additionally outlines what circumstances could be met for an officer to be required to ask a suspect for "Their papers". It could be "legal touch". the occasion given interior the regulation is easy: vehicle packed with non-English speaking human beings in a site visitors stop (legal touch) in a accepted human smuggling hall and none of them have identity. The regulation in elementary terms demands genuine looking prudence that regulation enforcement has been lacking in this section for some years. Will some regulation enforcement take this as an possibility to racially profile human beings? constructive.. and that they could be dealt with in accordance with the regulations and regulations we at present have against such practices... merely like unlawful immigrants could be. the full argument is asinine.. all human beings is here illegally, so as long because of the fact the fourth modification is adhered to, who cares if law enforcement officers ask human beings, for the period of a legal touch concern, in the event that they are here legally?

    Obama's big government is getting in the way of states rights, the Constitution, and the will of the American people.
