Judge Andrew Napolitano Slams AZ Law; Says "Being in the U.S. Illegally is Not a Crime" - Video 4/27/10

Here is video of Judge Andrew Napolitano on "Fox and Friends" this morning, where he criticized the new Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law by saying, "being in the U.S. illegally is not a crime."

Napolitano said "the State of Arizona has created a crime unique to Arizona, which is being present illegally in the state of Arizona."

Let that sink in for a minute: "Being in the U.S. illegally is not a crime." No wonder we're in such a mess.

The nice thing about Arizona's law is that it clears up that idiotic ambiguity. Being illegal in Arizona is, in fact, illegal.

And about time!

This is ridiculous. Instead of getting rid of police power to pull you over for things that do not endanger life, liberty or property, they can now ask you for papers? It will come down to another fine (tax) of $50 or more for every white person that doesn't have his papers.

I can hear obnoxious sergeant's at roll call telling patrolmen to pull over their quota of marks and impose useless fines as everyone reads this.

The law is too ambiguous, reasonableness should be specific and include, say--- if you just can't speak English or read the signs? You know..public safety stuff. AZ screwed up.

I admire Napolitano but this is where his prejudice fatally flaws his argument. He's wrong. It is a crime to enter the United States or to otherwise willfully refuse to register, punishable by up to 6 months in prison pursuant to 8 USC § 1306(a). There are even more crimes for helping someone do it, so you can even arrest a legal person that's driving the car.

I will simply suggest that Judge Andrew Napolitan needs to read 8USC1325. Being here can be most certainly be a crime depending if one entered properly with a visa, or improperly by jumping the border.
