State of Arizona passed new immigration bill

Gov. Jan Brewer ignored criticism from President Barack Obama on Friday and signed into law a bill supporters said would take handcuffs off police in dealing with illegal immigration in Arizona, the nation's gateway for human and drug smuggling. With hundreds of protesters outside the state Capitol shouting that the bill would lead to civil rights abuses, Brewer said critics were "overreacting" and that she wouldn't tolerate racial profiling.
"We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act," Brewer said after signing the law. "But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation."
Earlier Friday, Obama called the Arizona bill "misguided" and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal. He also said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level — or leave the door open to "irresponsibility by others."
I'm pretty sure hundreds or even thousands of those protesters have an illegal immigrant family member in the U.S. I mean c'mon who's stupid enough not to want to stop or at least temporarily halt the profileration of illegals in the U.S.? By the way, why is Obama so over reacting on this issue? Did he do something good or at least had made a (no-help-of-telemprompter) speech about the illegals since he became the president of the United States of immigrants?
Did I hear anyone screaming of civil rights abuses? Get a life...
