The Arizona law to curb illegal immigration has caused a stir to say the least. Today the Center for Immigration Studies has a good summary of what it does and does not do. Check it out here.

Comment worth noting: maybe we found one of the 270 missing Somalis
Back in February we told you that ICE was looking for 270 illegal Somalis who have reportedly disappeared into the US. Today we got this comment to that post from a reader calling himself “Money.” Normally we don’t post comments with foul language but I thought this comment was telling.

Arizona Law said to rile up Hispanics for May Day march
May Day is Saturday and according to Reuters the regularly scheduled Marxist May Day events will be larger than normal thanks to Arizona’s stand on illegal immigration.
Protest organizers said on Wednesday outrage over the Arizona law — which seeks to drive illegal immigrants out of the state bordering Mexico — has galvanized Latinos and would translate into a higher turnout for May Day rallies in more than 70 U.S. cities. [Check organizers here, I don’t see 70 cities, are they exagerating again?—ed]
“The marches and demonstrations are going to be far more massive than they otherwise would have been,” said Juan Jose Gutierrez, a Los Angeles rally organizer who runs an immigration assistance company.
The backlash began on Friday after Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into law a measure that requires state and local police to determine a person’s immigration status if there is “reasonable suspicion” they are undocumented. Critics say it is unconstitutional and opens the door to racial profiling.
Republican backers of the law say it is needed to curb crime in the desert state, which is a key corridor for drug and migrant smugglers from Mexico.
A Rasmussen Reports poll on Wednesday found that almost two-thirds — 64 percent — of voters in the state favored the measure.
The crowds on the streets, from Los Angeles to New York, could be the biggest since 2006, when hundreds of thousands of marchers urged former President George W. Bush to overhaul of federal immigration laws. He tried, but failed in Congress.
For a history of May Day—it ain’t all about flowers and Maypoles!—see here and here.
I’ll be looking for evidence that federal refugee contractors are involved in bringing out marchers as they did recently in Washington, DC here. You can be sure that Cardinal Mahoney is whipping up the Bishops!
I’ll bet you a buck there is violence by some of those demonstrating on May Day. I wonder will Obama order out the riot police as he did yesterday in Quincy, IL against old lady Tea Partiers (go here to Gateway Pundit for a good laugh at Obama).
