Joe Manchin III on Immigration

Democratic WV Governor

Opposes suing Arizona over immigration enforcement law

Gov. Manchin has stated he opposes the Obama Administration's lawsuit against Arizona over their immigration enforcement law, SB1070.

[Explanatory note from Wikipedia.com]:

The Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act (SB1070): US federal law requires all aliens who remain for longer than 30 days to register with the US government. The Arizona Act additionally makes it a state misdemeanor crime for an alien to be in Arizona without carrying the required documents, requires that state law enforcement officers attempt to determine an individual's immigration status when there is reasonable suspicion that the individual is an illegal alien, bars local officials from restricting enforcement of federal immigration laws and cracks down on those hiring and transporting illegal aliens. The intent of the legislation embodies an "attrition through enforcement" doctrine. Critics of the legislation say it encourages racial profiling. Pres. Obama called it "misguided."
