‘Arizona Border Invasion Act’ Vetoed?!

(DailyEmailNews.com) – In overwhelming evidence showcasing the left’s push to gift America away to aliens, Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs of Arizona vetoed a bill that proposed granting law enforcement the authority to arrest migrants for illegally crossing into Arizona from the southern border.

Dubbed the “Arizona Border Invasion Act,” the proposed S.B. 1231 legislation aimed to allow law enforcement to catch migrants at unauthorized entry points along the southern border.

For those found guilty, the bill specified a sentence of up to six months in prison for a first offense and a potential two-year imprisonment for subsequent violations, as outlined in the bill’s documentation.

Despite Governor Hobbs’ previous concern regarding the border crisis, she dismissed the bill by stating it was not a fitting resolution.

In her veto announcement Hobbs criticized the bill for leveraging anti-immigrant sentiment for political gain and claimed:

“Today, I am delivering on my promise and I am vetoing Senate Bill SB1231. This bill does not secure our border. On the contrary, it will be harmful for communities and businesses in our state, and a burden for law enforcement personnel. I know there’s frustration about the federal government’s failure to secure our border, but this bill is not the solution.”

In contrast, Senate Republicans condemned Hobbs’ action as a failure to safeguard Arizona residents from the detrimental effects of Joe Biden’s border policies, stating:

“Vetoing the Arizona Border Invasion Act is a prime example of the chaos Hobbs is unleashing in our state while perpetuating this open border crisis as Biden’s accomplice. Arizonans want and deserve safe communities. Our local, county, and state law enforcement officers are pleading for help, and they support this legislation to protect our citizens.”

At the same time Texas is attempting to enact a similar law targeting illegal migrants, which faced a halt by the Supreme Court following an urgent appeal by the Biden administration, as reported by CNN.

In the first quarter of the 2024 fiscal year, Arizona’s Tucson sector witnessed over 250,000 migrant encounters, a surge of 182% from the same timeframe in 2023, as per data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
