Arizona lawmakers have proposed a bill that would give local enforcement more power to deal with people who enter the country illegally.

“It’s time to take the handcuffs off of sheriffs who have been elected to protect the citizens of Arizona, which is why I’m introducing the Arizona Border Invasion Act, SB-1231,” said Sen. Janae Shamp (R-29) as she kicked off the news conference in Phoenix on Wednesday, Jan. 24.

Immunity for local officials and increased authority for law enforcement agencies are major areas the act focuses on.

First, the bill proposes that if a local government official or contractor acts on state or federal law, they would be immune from any civil liability. It goes one step further and says should any damages occur for an individual while executing a law, they would be entitled to compensation.
