“Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act” is the official, yet seldom used, name of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, SB 1070. A very thorough analysis of SB 1070 is presented on the ‘FactReal’ website. Included are recent updates, such as the fact that Governor Brewer signed an Amendment to SB1070, HB2162.
In Section 13-2929 , entitled ‘Unlawful transporting, moving, concealing, harboring or shielding of unlawful aliens; vehicle impoundment; exception; classification’, the law outlines provisions forbiding several things: the section forbids transporting people if someone knows or disregards the fact that they are aliens in the country illegally; forbids concealing or harboring aliens from detection; and forbids encouraging or inducing aliens to come to or reside in the state. Also, any vehicle which is used to violate the section is “subject to mandatory vehicle immobilization or impoundment”.
The penalty for violating the aforementioned laws can be severe, as outlined in part D : “A PERSON WHO VIOLATES THIS SECTION IS GUILTY OF A CLASS 1 MISDEMEANOR AND IS SUBJECT TO A FINE OF AT LEAST ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS, EXCEPT THAT A VIOLATION OF THIS SECTION THAT INVOLVES TEN OR MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS IS A CLASS 6 FELONY AND THE PERSON IS SUBJECT TO A FINE OF AT LEAST ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR EACH ALIEN WHO IS INVOLVED.”
Part C of 13-2929, however, makes an exception to all of these laws and penalties. It states: “THIS SECTION DOES NOT APPLY TO A CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES WORKER ACTING IN THE WORKER’S OFFICIAL CAPACITY”. Part C also exempts first responders, ambulance attendants and medical technicians.
So, transporting illegal aliens, concealing them from detection and arrest, and encouraging them to live in the state (with state approved foster parents, perhaps?) is not illegal if you’re a child protective services worker in Arizona; the vans workers use to haul children around can not be seized or impounded (since they’re vehicles which belong to the state anyway, the state seizing them would be quite redundant). Regarding the ten or more people rule, if ten kids are taken from a house for let’s say, allegations of ‘abuse’, the child protective services worker can not be charged with a felony for having ten illegal aliens in the vehicle.
Advocates of liberty and limited government are well aware of the horrors and outrageous abuses of the so-called ‘child proitective services’ system across America. States are oftentimes given federal money for each kid they steal from a home. Due process is thrown out the window entirely, with families being torn apart before charges are filed, and before even an arrest or indictment is made, much less a conviction by a jury in a court of law. News reports nationwide acknowledge that once the children are stolen from their natural families, they are oftentimes abused, molested, drugged up and sometimes even killed while in custody of the state It’s a shame that Arizona, in typical statist fashion, offers exceptions to socialist family-destroying busibodies in SB 1070, it’s constantly touted ‘tough on crime’ bill.
