That the law was introduced to the Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, who authored an official email to his support and donor base in which he made the conspiratorial claim that journalists pushed the view of:
“a world in which every voice proclaims the equality of the races, the inerrant nature of the Jewish ‘Holocaust’ tale, the wickedness of attempting to halt the flood of non-White aliens pouring across our borders…”
In the photo above, the close relationship between Pearce and J.T. Ready is displayed. Ready is a Minuteman and nativist, photographed below with the comparatively strong Neo-Nazi movement in Arizona. His other ties have been well documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Critics such as myself point out the law in itself is a clear violation of the 4th Amendment, and is unconstitutional. Others note that there is simply no way that a ‘reasonable suspicion’ can apply without actual racial profiling take place.
The law itself was authored by Kris Kobach, who is running for Secretary of State in Kansas. The man is also a firm believer in the birther conspiracy that contends Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
Kobach is an attorney for Immigration Reform Law Institute, the legal arm of the chameleon named organization Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR. As Maddow reveals, the founder of FAIR was a well known racist and the seed money to get it started also came from an infamous Eugenics (the same thing the Nazi’s did) outfit.
