The superintendent of Highland Park schools tonight is defending his decision keep the girls varsity basketball team from playing in Arizona in a note addressed to parents students and staff today -- -- George.
For a four -- says quote.
This decision is not a political statement regards state -- on his recently enacted legislation regarding immigration that.
Even if you believe the superintendent politicians -- Boston and LA are calling for boycotts of Arizona.
Even though support for the new immigration laws -- a new pew poll shows 73%.
Of Americans approve it.
Of the law's key elements like requiring people to produce documents verifying.
They're legal status so here to weigh in is radio talk show host Michael Graham from Boston.
And from Los Angeles UCLA professor mark Sawyer now mark first do you -- it.
These pure results -- really surprises 73%.
Of Americans basically agree with the Arizona law are they wrong.
Who lived Jim -- probably would have been fairly popular during its day amongst a lot of not all over these guys look that's unfair come -- Maybe in the south but not all over the US.
Or not probably by 1960 but certainly before they're in first I want to congratulate my mother in law for passing her citizenship exam today graduates is certainly these -- -- that -- these loft went out I mean.
She's very afraid watching this debate about.
The kinds of things that might happen hurt someone if someone approached and demanded documents about none of us on the air right now -- proof of citizenship with this -- at the moment.
I don't have my passport or birth certificate with me.
And it went to conservatives don't even believe in birth certificate -- you produce what you have it anyway wolf I these kinds of things.
Michael I gotta I gotta say -- what my wife is a nationalized agencies who she's in Nicaragua she supports the Arizona law because she says I worked hard to become legal I want us our I want it to be just as hard for everybody else what.
First -- look we need to start with the vital repugnant statement from professor Sawyer compared to 73% of Americans who want to enforce.
Border laws the same way that every other country does comparing them to the Jim -- -- -- Is vile and disgusting and also showed the intellectual level.
A people opposes professor Sawyer you believe anyone should be able come to America anytime they choose without any documentation any -- right.
Now right -- You know lay you dollars what you thought I was dial with the -- what is this what -- -- what I.
He got -- little guys anyway where what you're doing a lot of times I don't know all the way -- I don't.
-- hold on.
Mark do you want it would retract anything about what you said comparing these people who favor the law -- -- -- people in America.
73 when asked if they believe that they want to support this -- even -- they know it will lead to racial profiling.
About 60% said they still would do it that's wrong.
That's wrong racial profiling it's wrong it's wrong.
If it's I'm not crazy not mistreated -- if it's someone you think is -- -- -- -- immigrant and that they know few results Michael's -- and it's wrong and sick.
I'm sort of prevent ongoing -- cannot -- and I don't let Michael go ahead.
In addition to insulting the American people we also show you have no clue what's in the law the law specifically says that you have to be your mother -- -- -- -- stopped for legitimate stopped arrest or detention and then upon probable -- after that point then where practicable this citizenship should be ascertained so you know what you're talking about not -- -- -- -- if your mom is still out -- working -- hope she's -- so you're taking good care -- -- She -- -- I don't he doesn't have to compete with criminal immigrants -- stealing jobs from her.
By not getting the documentation they need and not having to play by the rules -- that American citizens are left unemployed -- -- I think it.
Her mother in law his mother in law by the way but go ahead marked as if from other allow what Michael's -- lifts -- -- first involved -- Michael doesn't know how to -- poll results so.
If the poll asked about if you would believe it led to racial profiling at 60%.
But it believes a racial profiling -- still support it but second of all of immigration violation is not a crime.
It specifically not a crime and federal law it's always been.
Disconnected from -- federal criminal law if -- it's a violation it's like -- speeding ticket and no like a busted taillight.
If you've ever been stopped and -- there are harassed by police.
For probable cause the reasons that you think are racially profile I've had that experience and those of us who have that experience well like the national association are -- aren't here -- -- was your flaws.
Rollins single yourself out mark a lot of us have been pulled over for Roni is -- sometimes it happens for a long hole.
-- number of reasons whether it's profiling or not go ahead Michael.
What you I was arrested last year wrongly sent to jail wrongly for a paperwork -- by the registration motor vehicles.
But the fact that.
Every other country -- you were reported that the -- has the right to secure their borders and I don't think he gets rewarded if you're not as citizen you can't be deported if you're a citizen market.
Which are not carrying through with citizenship with you get that process I don't know that you gotta truck driver the other week.
I am bit that was -- and I don't carry a passport and driver's licenses and you don't carry a birth certificate with you who here as a person to get their back pocket.
In most -- why -- Michael and I get.
In motion I think you cannot get a driver's license that establishing that you are legal which is only common sense and notice -- president's Lawyer Milloy being the big question.
What is he prepared to do that actual functioning borders the agenda is open borders and amnesty a complete abolishment of the -- United States we've.
Again that's -- that question and evidently began by mark when I -- my job my mammogram mark Sawyer gentlemen thank you very much coming up.
