Update and I law enforcement.
Our brave men and women in uniform have been trained so they are able to enforce Islam efficiently.
And in harmony with the constitution.
Will be protected.
Will not be tolerated.
Senate bill 1070 is equally committed to upholding the rule of law while reassuring that the constitutional rights of all.
In Arizona are protected.
Including prohibiting law enforcement officers from solely.
Considering race color or national origin in implementing its provision.
That was governor Jan Brewer.
In a statement announcing her attention to proceed with enforcement of her State's immigration law despite threats federal sanction against her.
And this is power play welcome back and what governor brewer is doing is engaged in -- -- high stakes game of chicken.
With the Obama administration and attorney general Eric Holder who is already out soliciting.
Litigants for a suit against Arizona no sooner had she completed.
Claiming victory in -- Supreme Court case that was handed down yesterday affirming the central provision of that law which is that the police shall determine immigration status of those that they stopped for other crimes Eric Holder was -- -- you think you've been racially profiled the Justice Department says that you think you've been racially -- call us -- Superheroes with us still.
And good news you know -- and you let's -- like -- you know why.
She's a Fox News contributor she is a woman of the left and she's Smart she's funny -- -- welcome back to the big show.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Okay so.
This is some.
If for the blue team Sally the hope has to be here.
That giving Arizona the power to do this is going to result in an embarrassment for Mitt Romney.
Who is as I wrote today obliquely supportive of the Arizona law or at least the right of Arizona to have a law like this.
And that if is some bad thing happens out there Eric Holder can really Bob -- Jan -- in the -- it's gonna make Mitt Romney look bad right.
Yeah Chris even I am not that cynical and politically calculating.
Are concerned about.
And Arizona and anti immigration law.
Is because of its violations concerns of -- violations of civil liberties.
And individual rights concerns that you have states.
Are attempting to trump the federal government in areas of national policy amid -- serious concerns.
To have their rights violated.
To anyone who who deserves to be and should be in this country.
To feel like they can't freely walk down the street without having.
-- belonging questioned.
Certainly their concerns about racial profiling I mean -- that's what the law basically tells cops to do look -- they look like they could be an undocumented immigrant.
Pull -- ask for their papers.
I think that's -- Yeah.
-- way and to be honest -- fair I don't wanna get go south.
Regardless of the political and Serbs who now what the law says though is that the police if they have a reason this is that but what in law enforcement they referred to as a secondary.
If today if they've stopped -- -- you for something else and there's they have suspicions Chris as good as what is what the law.
You're right you're right but look I live in New York City where as you probably know and a lot of people know we're having massive problems with -- New York City stop and -- laws.
Where again and we don't have an SP 1070 law that sort of you know encourages or -- excuses racial profiling.
We have laws disable cops can.
Pull over and stop and frisk people if they have but they seem to have furtive movements or we -- they might have unexplained -- generic rocket.
And we believe we'll see how those have been abused here.
We we will stipulate that you have.
That you are not cynical on this and that you agree with the motives here but.
Just for our cynical purposes dash express what we this is sort of what we do down here aside -- I.
From that aside from the decent things that you have talked about there is hope right.
That Romney might -- himself in this if this law as it's being implemented doesn't work out the right way.
You know again I'm sorry Chris and I'm not -- I -- -- wanted to -- Mann -- -- -- -- I would personally rather as an American who believes that we need to be a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants and that we.
Can look that nothing is that we have a broken immigration system it's not working for American workers it's not working for immigrants it's not working for our economy.
We have companies who are trying to lure workers here so that they can pay the -- and drive down wages and meanwhile we're spending tremendous resources.
Trying to police and enforce.
The folks who are here without permission.
Look I would like to see a Republican presidential nominee in the tradition of John McCain in the tradition of Ronald Reagan.
Who stepped forward on this to do the right thing on immigration reform the racing by immigrants and the right thing by America.
As opposed to Mitt Romney who -- of going back and forth refusing to commit because he's worried about.
Pleasing the far.
Anti immigrant fringe of his face.
Don't care about -- -- -- leaders on both sides of the -- stand up and do.
The right saying the just thing.
And the American thing and stop playing the sort of extremist well if he said this phenomena say that because that's what we do now partisan politics it's trial.
So you have flummoxed us with your expressions of decency and high mindedness.
You've you've you've -- -- -- I'm Washington.
But we thank you so much for being with us today always good -- Well why are okay.
And deaths let's put us here with the jets -- to say let's hear what you have to say Internet.
The it is says says Greg do you know -- shameless to toss out the -- -- so frequently as a form of defense.
What I wrote about today yes and when I wrote about today Susan was the fact that as.
And we're gonna talk about this with Mike Emanuel in our next segment but as -- you see.
Today Al Sharpton.
And mark -- out the former mayor of -- -- -- ahead of the Urban League Ben jealous who's the head of the NAACP.
As you see these folks without -- and come -- today echoing something Nancy Pelosi said last week that this.
-- she's last week speaking former speaker of the house accuse the current speaker of the house essentially of engaging in a racist conspiracy.
To prevent black people and minorities from voting in swing states and that's why they were doing this -- fast and furious.
I can explain it to you if you look back a few weeks ago we talked about the war against women.
Well for Democrats that was really helpful because -- helped bring on board some of the important independent female voters who actually took place huge role in tipping missing in Obama's favor.
In this -- upcoming election.
Now we're talking about race now who does he need to bring the poles -- -- -- Okay needs to get his -- out and he needs to win he need to pick.
Ask the voters and -- who would -- yet at this point is a very close race do will be really important for him to get out as many as his base as he -- This will help if they help time.
It's this -- at all but also there's another group that he's interest it and he's -- -- -- the moderate suburbanites the people who live in places like Bucks County Pennsylvania and the people who live in places like.
Fairfield County Ohio.
Who like the idea of electing the first black president.
In 2008 and might not like to feel like they were being racist -- if they voted against it.
It's definitely a risk they think this place really going after he's really figuring out how can win by going after his base because he's losing to people he's losing -- fringe -- that helped him win four years ago he's losing.
The white middle and lower class voters I believe and so he has to go after space.
But by the way do you do you follow Greg saying he's regular viewer watcher he's -- -- that.
I can read almost but none of them he's a little Q it's a little too a little -- body sometimes but it's very funny so if you like if you like that sort of thing.
You can follow him at -- match.
But we will also say that -- -- Makes an interest -- point.
Which is that he doesn't just go to an immigration Catholic Church the abortion issue front immigration the economy in the voter -- maybe maybe not.
But we do point out yesterday there was a poll by Gallup.
That showed that it was only the big issue for Hispanic voters it was only number five.
So immigration is important.
But it's not everything OK okay.
