illegal border crossers cost too much of our tax money. The born in the states rule needs to be ended also including those already grandfathered in for the past 10 years.

Not when everyone committing a crime is of a certain race. Example: very terrorist lately has been a muslim, and most of the people crossing the Mexican border as illegal criminals are hispanics. Whom should the Arizona cops be looking for Irishmen?

I am sick and tired of having to foot the bill for these illegals. They are welcomed here in the US but do it legally. Send them all back, every last one of them. They have no right coming into our Country and making the demands they do. This includes Filipe Calderon!!

And of course they are setting a wonderful example for their children. Entering a country illegally, using stolen or fraudulent papers to obtain jobs and benefits, driving without licence and insurance, and don't forget to show their children how to jump from the vehicle, grab the tag and run if they are involved in an accident. Teaching their children to lie about who they are. Wonderful family values.

yes, the illegal immigration problem needs to come to an end!!!

And Mexico's President needs to sit back and shut the Fuck-up. He needs to be addressing the problems in his own country and working on making Mexico a better place for it's people!!!

If the Mexican government would do the right thing, maybe the country would prosper better and the people would not have to leave!!!

the immigration problem needs to end, I'm tired of calling the bank push 1 for Spanish 2 for English. My wife is from Vietnam she had to learn english while the Mexican workers get everything handed to them in Spanish on the job, it's not fair to her. They can lean English too!! Also my wife has her U.S. Citizenship!!!

The law AZ posted is nothing more than the enforcement of existing federal law. The Law also has clear guide lines on enforcement and when someone can be questioned. The biggest thing that I think most people are missing is the law includes instructions on how to sue the state if their civil rights are violated

Candance.....I think it would be an excellent idea if you marched "with them" in Mexico. You would make an excellent addition to Mexican society and we will help you get there if you'd like.

Calderon , the president of the most lawless country in the Western Hemisphere , lecturing the US on our laws and the Dems in Congress and Obama cheering for him . Disgraceful !

Let's talk about those hardworking family people for a minute. In many cases, the mother stays at home and has several children born in the USA which makes them citizens under the 14th amendment. They qualify for WIC, EBT, Section 8 housing, etc. because they tell DFACS that they have no husband. Meanwhile, the "man of the house" is working a construction job for cash and paying no taxes.
Family goes to the grocery, fills two buggies with food, pays with EBT card and "man of house" pulls out a wad of bills that would choke a horse to pay for the beer and cigarettes.
I've seen estimates of 12 to 38 million illegal aliens in this country (our government has no idea how many are here). There are 7.5 million of them who are accountable for jobs being held. That means they are using a stolen Social Security number or using one of the ITIN's issued by IRS and they are having taxes taken out. Of course when they claim 8 kids, they are paying nothing but SS & Medicare. At the end of the year, they claim child tax credits and end up getting back far more than they paid in. Meanwhile, they use the ER as their primary doctor and never pay so their medical car is free (only to them, the tax payer pays).
Some doing contract work get a 1099 which means no taxes are taken out and they are supposed to file it and pay taxes at the end of the year, most never file it and how is IRS going to find them?
With only 7.5 million shown as employed, what are the rest of them doing for a living?
Some are growing pot in our National forests, polluting the ground water with their chemicals and using armed guards and land mines to protect them.
Some are in gangs, some are selling stolen ID's, some are running meth labs or smuggling drugs or more illegal aliens into the country, some are running prostitution houses, some are kidnapping people for ransom, etc. I don't think any of them would be paying taxes.
I've been researching the issue for over 6 years, do a little research and see if I'm telling the truth, google will give you a lot of information.
Then decide if you are for or against illegal immigration.
While you are researching, look up "illegal immigration's human cost". If you live in the Atlanta area, I'm sure you remember the 9 year old boy in Sandy Springs, who tried to tell an illegal alien that the wheel on his car was wobbling. In front of a playground full of children, the man got out of the car and planted an ax in the childs head.
With all the homegrown criminals we have, why would we want to import more?

Hard working or not many are here illegally. That makes them criminals. What part of illegal donít some people understand?

There are German immigrants in my family tree. When they came to this country they had to learn the language and American ways. Is it wrong to expect current immigrants to do the same?

If you were to immigrate to Mexico would you not have to learn Spanish? If you were living in Mexico as an illegal immigrant what would the punishment be if you were caught.

Stow the faux compassion. Try a cup of reality.
