Regardless of what the specific law is, whether it be stealing, raping, carjacking or BEING IN ANOTHER COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, the Police are commissioned to uphold the law, regardless. Yes, criminals hate the law and will always try to reason their way out, however, the police have a duty to serve and protect. This garbage from Charlie Beck that upholding California Penal Code 834 (b)(which is exactly what the AZ law spells out) will cause a rift between the Police and illegals is some of the stupidest remarks I have ever heard. If he cannot properly perform the duties of his job, get him out and get someone in there that will. Same thing with Villaragoisa - impeach him! He has ties to Felipe Calderon that makes one wonder if he still has gang ties (MM).

Actually, I did something the US AG, the Police Chief of Tucson, and the Chief of LAPD have not done, I read the damned bill! There are legal reprecussions for Officers using racial profiling to enforce this law!..By the way, the Tucson Chief may want to read it right away, since it also includes legal action against government officials that do not enforce the law!
Why doesn't California have this law as well?

I notice that the chiefs say nay even after being briefed by Holder. Oh wait a minute, Holder hasn't read it yet, but the rank an file, the boots on the street support it. These chiefs are just political hacks who can smile pretty for the camera but have no idea, nor intent, to know what is going on in the streets because they are so out of touch in their ivory towers.

I agree Legal!!! If we start condoning the violation of one section of the Penal Code, will we have to reform other parts to make robbery, murder, etc. all allowable. Let's not categorize crime. Crime is crime and needs to be dealt with!

Beck is a lap dog for the racist chicano hate monger Mayor of LA. He can't make any statement that is honest or he might be fired.
He sold his sole to the Reconquistas to get his $300,000 plus per year gig.

Souls don't come cheap.

Well think about this. Less illegals mean less sales taxes being made at stores.(sorry to burst your bubble but illegals do pay taxes at Ralphs, Food For Less, etc. If an illigeal uses a ss# or tax id to work, even if it is not theirs, they are paying taxes as well)
Who ever they are paying to rent rooms houses, to buy food, to go to the movies, to buy cars, to buy clothes, water, utilities...all that money gone along with the sales tax paid.
With these unskilled, undocumented works gone, the cost of labor goes up, the consumer gets left holding the bill. All of a sudden the cost of living will cost more. yet we are getting paid the same.
(you dont think it will happen soon, look at the gas industry, they are itching to spike up prices like they did when Katrina happened, why wouldnt other industries?)
You are right, it is all about the money, but dont let rhetoric fool you. people think that all immigrants do is take and take, but you are all blind to think that they dont give back.
this is a country of immigrants, convienant immigrants from Europe more like it. where were the pilgrims documents?
I have not issue paying higher prices, etc. I pay the higher prices because companies who do use illegal immigration charge the same amount as companies who use illegal immigrants.

Every country in the world, except maybe Iraq, is a nation of immegrants. So please do not give me that line of we are immigrants. I am not an immigrant since I was born here. My ancestors came to this country by the rules in place at the time and did not expect anything nor did they receive anything.

By getting illegals out of the country, I amy have to pay an extra 25 cents for my hamburger at McDonald's. Also, with the illegals gone, many welfare recepients will have a place to work.

Our emergency rooms will have less people seeking care to a cold. Saves money.

Got a call from a friend of mine this morning. She was rear ended on the freeway by some punk. He didn't speak english, no drivers license, no insurance. The cops let him go.
That's what we get for not taking care of this problem. Makes me sick. Comprende?

My God what a pitiful waste of time and money.

Chanting "ALL HAIL THE ILLEGALS......who cares what happens to the filthy citizen scum"
must get tiresome after awhile.

Holder couldn't be less interested in the rule of LAW.

Sadly the illegals in Chief Beck's hood are not latino, they are chino.

Maybe that's why he caves in to Tony Vilar.

What about the crimes of entering our country illegally, identity theft, traffic violations, murder, drug running, etc. that illegal aliens commit? Why bother with the privilage of being a U.S. Citizen when it's better to have laws not apply to you because you are an ILLEGAL ALIEN?

What a disgrace to have the LA Police Chief defending and supporting the criminals. By doing so, the chief is himself a criminal. Los Angeles voters should recall that Mexican mayor and this brown nose chief. Lay them off and let them talk politic all day.

Come on freebird, it's always about money. Follow the money to why illegal immigrants come here and you'll find a bunch of greedy Americans and the end of the line who rather hire them then you and I.

It's always about the money!!!
In times of recessions Americans want immigrants illegal or not out. In good times Americans could care less about their presence.
This is a fact.
We don't want the illegal immigrants here leeching off our system as they have for decades. There is a Federal law we want upheld. Why are we debating a law already in place? You refer to them as illegal, that is correct, they are illegal. That is why they need to go back to their native countries.
Has nothing to do with hating, racism, or angry. It is against the law to racial profile so I am sure that won't be a problem. Az needs to rid these people of coming over the border, just like CA needs to start putting the law into effect. I see the Mayor of Costa Mesa has gotten onboard with this law and other cities will follow.

So the police chief's claim that if the police are arresting Illegal's that will take police officers away from fighting crime correct? but on the other hand alot of cities sure have a whole lot of police personel to conduct DUI Check point's enforce the seat belt laws pedestrian crosswalk stings and so on only because it generates revenue for the cities so if there to busy rounding up Illegals it takes them away from making there cities money but I will bet anybody that if the goverment told these Police chief's will give you $500.00 ahead for every Ilegal you bring in you know all of the sudden POOF!!!! We have enough police to enforce the law truly all about the money.DOUBLE STANDARD B.S.

I have had two car accidents. Both times commited by illegals. I was dumbfounded both times. They were at fault. No insurance and no driver's license. The cops let them go both times. These both happened in CA. No way to contact the people who hit us. They are automatically off the hook. Needless to say we had to up our uninsured motorist to cover the next time this happens. Is that fair my insurance had to pay my bills and I had to buy more unisured motorist because of these people driving and living here illegally?

Increases in crime would likely be temporary and followed by peace and quiet. I could live with that.

NO way. Villar bought Beck for $335,000. Beck is just a puppet for the racist chicano hate machine. A very well compensated Puppet.
