Obama Slams Arizona Immigration Law as "Irresponsible," and Undermining "Basic Notions of Fairness" - Video 4/23/10
Here is video of President Obama today slamming the then pending Arizona Immigration Law that he called "irresponsible," and a bill that threatens to "undermine basic notions of fairness."
The Arizona bill, just signed into law, gives authorities there broader power to check the immigration status of people and to detain them.
"Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans."Obama may use the Arizona law as his justification for pushing Immigration higher up on the agenda.
