The following is the transcript from a radio show I participate in every week called the "Saturday News Hangover." This is the first segment of a show that was recorded on Saturday, July 31st. What follows is our discussion of the SB1070 law and it features host Chris Novembrino, new panelist Stephanee Freer, and myself.

I transcribed the show segment so you could choose between listening to the discussion or read what was discussed.

Here's a link to the segment on SB1070. The transcript is below:

CHRIS NOVEMBRINO: Hey, yo, yo and hello. Once again, it's Saturday, July 31st 2 pm central time and I'm still Chris Novembrino and that must mean it's time once again for the Saturday News Hangover. It's been a big week this week in the news and we've already done a panel show on Afghanistan earlier in the week so if you want to hear us talk about that, go listen to that cause we're not going to talk about that otherwise this would be longer than watching all three of the Star Wars movies together. On the roster first is our new panelist, Stephanee Freer. Stephanee would you mind giving an introduction?

STEPHANEE FREER: I'm Stephanee. I'm from Arizona. I just graduated at NIU with a degree in American Political Studies. Unemployed and looking for some fun so this is what I'm doing.

CHRIS: And as always we are joined from the Windy City by the fiery Kevin Gosztola. How ya doing Kevin?

KEVIN GOSZTOLA: Pretty good. Pretty good. Good to be on the show.

CHRIS: Today, we're going to talk about Arizona bill, SB1070. Then, sanctions on Iran, Then, a 100 day wrap-up of BP. Then, a critique of Howard Dean and his critique of Fox News as a racist news group.

This week "Judge Bolton's temporary injunction will impede the enforceability of the intact senate bill, including the most controversial aspects of the contentious statute. Amongst these polemic bill parts left out of play, during this round, will be state police officers' authority to inquire as to legal status, while interacting with residents in the context of other laws." As it stands, police officers can still act on blocked traffic due to day labor solicitation and on those that transport or harbor illegal immigrants as a form of promoting their prolonged stay in the country. However, do not expect to have to answer to your legal status if you forget your license at home or are here illegally at least until the bill is appealed. I should not that I got this from the Washington Examiner and it has a bit of a slant but I thought it was pretty succinct. So, I want to open up the floor to to you guys.
