(CNN) – A Phoenix police officer's challenge to the new immigration law in Arizona could be settled in a court hearing Thursday.
Phoenix police officer David Salgado has sued Arizona's Gov. Jan Brewer and is asking a federal judge to stall the implementation of the law until it can be proved that it is constitutional.
Brewer has asked the judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
Arizona immigration law attracted many candidates. Candidates running for governors, senate, house representative, state senate and state representative supporting the Arizona law so I spoke to some small business owners they are smarter than these candidates
Small business are suffering because people are not spending money if illegal immigrants leave the town many rental property become vacant, grocery store have less customers it will go on
Bring illegal immigrants in the system then easy to identify the criminals then deport the criminals
Can our candidates thing practical like small business owners
You go officer Salgado. Brewer, you just go away.
It's good to live in country were a law officer can question the constitutionality of the law he has to enforcer?
Sure it is.
If there's no ground for his claims then he'll be properly disciplined for his lame act, but if there's something then he won't be forced to act like a dictatorship's police.
Cop is in a no win. He has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. The 4th amendment says the Fed is the Supreme Law of the land. Brewer states cop must follow state law and Feds say cop must follow Constitution law. Either way the cop will lose job.
Which may be what happens to the US Supreme Court. If they rule in favor of AZ they have just stated the Constitution (4th amendment) is no longer the highest law of the land and thus no need for a Supreme Court.
This guy is no cop. He swore to uphold the law..He has violated his oath of office.
Nice to see there are some people of courage in Arizona who are willing to stand up to their tyrant of a governor and the mob mentality running rampant in that state. This new law is unconstitutional and un-American! just because a majority of people like something doesn't make it right. if the majority decided to reinstate slavery, should we do it???
Good luck to the officer. The proponents of the AZ law seem to think that putting immigrants in jail is the solution. My question is where? They will have to be put some where until a deportation hearing. Again, I ask where? They never address that question. Oh yea, then we can ask who is going to pay for this detention? Tax payers, that's who.
You might know he is a Mexican. Give it up. This guy does not need to be on the Police Department. When people break the law it is his duty to enforce it. Mexicans are like African Americans if he is one of theirs he does no wrong.
Do your job or be fired. That should be the response by this officers chief. Uphold the law! But I can see by the spelling of his last name that he may have some illegals already in the states.
