Hagedorn reveals that in 1994, six states with the highest immigrant populations in the U.S. filed for reimbursement from the federal government, claiming that the high numbers of illegal immigrants residing in those states had a negative economic impact on the state as a whole. The federal government responded by saying that reimbursing the states may actually encourage illegal immigration, and any states helping the immigrants financially do so voluntarily and at their own risk (Hagedorn, 272-3). This situation flips the previous dilemmas around – the federal government actually left the state governments to deal with immigration on their own here, and offered no help. Unfortunately, this leaves the states in a very difficult position – allowing the undocumented immigrants to remain in the state poses the threat of crippling the state financially, but forcibly removing the immigrants from their homes would have an impact on general citizen welfare. Not only were the states stuck in an uncomfortable situation, but also the likelihood of the state governments being able to forcibly remove undocumented immigrants from the state is close to zero.
This article was meant for everyone one to read but especially to show those not from these states the injustice that was happening within their own country. According the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website, during the 80’s and 90’s, the United States saw a large increase in illegal immigration. Then the U.S. decided to improve its security through acquiring new technology and employing many more officers. The government provided funding to place a new computer system to stop the illegal border crossing.
In 2010 a legislative act was issued in the state of Arizona and has received great attention and controversy. The Arizona Senate Bill 1070, Arizona SB 1070, permits police officers to determine the immigration status of whoever they arrest if, they have reasonable suspicion that they are illegal. SB 1070 has stirred controversy between people who are against illegal immigration and others who say this law allows profiling of Hispanics by the police. As of now, the United States Government’s immigration system is complex.
Profiling, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is the act or process of extrapolating information about a person based on known traits or tendencies. It is, in other words, a way of gathering information about someone through observations. Just based on this definition alone, you would be easily fooled into thinking that profiling, especially racial profiling, is harmless and simply another topic that is beaten and thrashed by the media. However, a more detailed analysis of police practices tells us another story: profiling is an illegal and immoral practice that threatens to shake the foundations of our ethnically-integrated society.
Racial profiling is a problem across the entire nation in law enforcement. In every community it differs to who is being oppressed, and it usually depends on the type of race and ethnicity the community holds. As to us, our culture and setting consist of a high percentage of hispanics and latinos, so here comes to our problem as to who is being targeted mostly in our racist issues with the police brutally.
Law enforcement agencies. The Government. Their job is to protect our country from any evil and keep us safe. Criminals are a big issue in our lives today, and law enforcement officers are trying to capture every single one of them. But, how are they going to stop these criminals when police officers are putting lives in danger? Racial profiling is practice by law enforcements officers by targeting individuals for suspicion of crime based on their race, ethnicity, religion or nationality. Although racial profiling may seem as a good technique, law enforcement officers are violating laws and endangering lives when affected. Racial profiling should not be accepted as law enforcement practice because it severely hampers citizen’s civil liberties, is unconstitutional, and has an effect on victims’ lives.
In conclusion, the idea of racial profiling and the issues on racism in today’s society calls attention to sustain peace and ethnic equality within communities all across the nation and around the world. It is important to acknowledge that the main solution to change the issues on racial profiling and racism is among the duties of government authorities, law enforcement officials, and the people of a nation. Everyone, of any race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or authority needs to understand that our voices and actions are capable of fixing the issues of racial injustice into a more fair environment to all people of color. Therefore, it is up to our knowledge and actions to help people understand that the solution to obtain racial equality
In The Divide, author Matt Taibbi conveyed to the reader the daily experiences in which illegal immigrants must undergo in order to remain in the United States. Because local law enforcement and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) started rapidly increasing the number of deported immigrants, local businesses that depended on the immigrant workforce felt dramatic effects. Even though business production slowed, ICE continued deporting illegal immigrants. Additionally, Our justice system realized the injustice of 287(g). According to the American Immigration Council, all local law enforcement were given the power to arrest, interrogate, or deport illegal immigrants, much like ICE officers.
Georgia and other states protested this decision saying states had “Sovereign Immunity”. Sovereign Immunity says that states can do as they please and face no legal consequences. The court denied their claim saying Article three, section two allowed them to try the case. This only caused more protest about the Supreme Court having too much power.
All things considered, Mark Sutherland has brought together a provocative corps of respected scholars and legal thinkers who collectively offer an incisive critique of a judiciary gone awry while they offer constructive solutions for reform. They make it abundantly clear that we the American people do not have to be slaves to the edicts of these black-robed deities. Their adroit assessment of the federal judiciary is intelligent, rooted in a principled esteem for the rule of law and constitutional popular rule, and their solutions are constitutional defensible, practical and tenable. One thing is resoundingly clear, we must stand up to these demigods in block robes that contravene the design of our federal republic and offer outlandish decisions at odds with the will of the vast majority of the people. It is paramount that the American people awaken and voice their discontent to their elected representatives in Congress if we are to abate judicial tyranny.

As a young black male in 2017, our society has me racially profiled. Anytime they see a young black male like myself, eyebrows raise. Society does not view us as equals, they view us as a minority even though we are a majority. We are viewed as the ground the walk on. They think we will never amount to anything. The African American population has contributed so much to this country and we still don't get the respect we deserve. Society expects us to fail, drop out of school, live a life of crime. Society expects me to have four kids and three baby mamas and on probation bc I can't pay child support. Society expects me to deal drugs and be in gang related activities. If I am walking through a wealthy neighborhood after dark society expects
“Racial Profiling” In recent years racial profile has been the buzz word. So what is racial profiling? Racial profiling is using the race of an individual or ethnicity by law enforcement as factor in the decision whether to engage in the enforcement of the law. The allegations are cops are targeting minorities, seemingly people of Africa decent more than any other race.
As with any criminal case, there are always a number of issues pertaining the stages of the crime and also the media and the general public’s opinion of the case. Many of the issues and explicit actions of certain individuals that had happened during the Corryn Rayney case had affected the interpretation of the case in someway for both government workers and the general public. By analysing the issues of the case, it allows a much more detailed view on the case and how most of the issues are linked in one way or another.
Racial profiling can be defined as any law enforcement initiated action that does not rely on the behavior of an individual, but relies on the individual characteristic such as their race, ethnicity, and national origin. Racial profiling states that if race or ethnicity is used as a factor in a decision to initiate interaction with an individual, then racial profiling is occurring. In other words, if a law enforcement officer stops an individual based on race, then the officer partakes in racial profiling. Historically, the lynching of slaves was advocating racial profiling. Also, the court case in 1944, Korematsu v. United States, the U.S. Supreme Court held that ethnic profiling is not unconstitutional and may be practiced in times of national
