brought to the arizona taxpayers. >> for more insight on the issue
university of san francisco law professor bill teaches immigration law and policy. he's also written as bring new book at the cool borders globalization in mexican immigration. they do so much professor for joining us this morning. you write a book that the new law is misguided. a lot of people are saying that explained perspective. >> first of all people should calm down and we should ask the question wire mexican migrants coming here. that will get this to the point of a lot of what controls the flow of mexican workers across the border is beyond their control. they're controlled by multinational corporations, who control how the flow of goods come across. i think would be surprising to a lot of people that mexico for example does not produce its own court anymore. pish because it cannot compete with a u.s. agriculture. so word of those 4 workers go? fecundity it added states. >> what you think about the future of this law it's already been challenged through the court system that's no surprise to anyone that's been looking at this. were you think is load new laws could and up? >> " there's a problem. there's three parts of the law appeared one part is arizona should cooperate as much as possible with federal law enforcement. that's fine. the part the two parts that are controversial the one that invites racial profiling. because it's safe. the arizona police officers can look at race, address and speech to determine whether not so what is undocumented. that's going to lead to racial profiling. and the third part, making it a crime in arizona to not have immigration papers. there's a problem there with federal supremacy clause that only the federal government can't pass criminal laws related to immigrants. >> you think the portions of this law will be rejected by federal court? >> definitely, i think the part that's pre-emptive the state cannot make it a crime to not have immigration papers. that's a federal matter. and the parts that invite racial profiling once people who are citizens and residents are getting arrested in arizona, you're a see a flurry of lawsuits and i'm pretty sure that arizona is cornerback down in that regard as well. >> it seems to people who drafted the law had to recognize the various pitfalls that you just mentioned. you think the real purpose of drafting this legislation was in part to get a dialogue going in washington to get the federal government to step in and do something about immigration? >> i do think many people supported the law in arizona for that purpose. i certainly don't think others did. why agreed there needs to be an impetus for federal immigration reform. and to be honest with you a few weeks ago i would not give an immigration change very much of a big chance. but the strange thing is that this is provided a basis for more discussion in washington. >> it's definitely on the front burner. this is not a new controversy this expense issue has been going on for years and factors legislation on the books now appeared that some critics are saying the federal government will simply enforce the laws that are on the book now appeared there would be a need for a new immigration reform is that correct? >> people make that allegation but but to be honest over the last several years there's been countless raids the robot registration has conducted raids. their strict border enforcement operation gatekeeper. were people are pushed to the most dangerous parts of the border in cross daily and people died. if there is of course meant that's why my argument is let's get smart about this and understand why are people coming here. enforcement is getting is just at the border deaths at the to border and have the communities were not understand that part of what we need to do is actually invest in mexico. do with the europeans for example did, they were smart to be invested in the poor countries. people are happy to stay home if there's development in their country. >> one thing you mention at the beginning of the interview is the fact that you wanted to see people stop and take a breath and turned down the rhetoric a little bit. given this is a political election year is that possible? >> were surely what i see with the health-care debate in our mental debate it doesn't bode well. i certainly hope that because i think there are people of goodwill on both side of the i/o that actually care about immigrants and care about our society and i think it's possible >> will see what happens in congress over the next couple weeks as you mentioned it's definitely a different route your taking professor for joing us from usf the title of your book at the cole porter's and mexican migration. and we'll be right back with more of kron 4 news weekend . coming up after this.
