I'm an immigrant and I went about it the legal way and I think everyone else that wants to live here should do the same. I don't mind the Arizona law a bit!

Against The AZ Law!

Increases the ranks of those enforcing immigration laws from a few police
departments, or units within departments, to every single law enforcement
officer in the entire state.
Expands the population at risk of being stopped, arrested, and detained from
a limited number those targeted by bona fide immigration enforcement
operations, or those already in police custody to everyone who comes into
contact with a law enforcement officer who has a reasonable suspicion
someone may be undocumented.
Virtually guarantees that Latinos and other minorities will be asked to
provide proof of legal residency and will be subject to arrest and detention if
they cannot do so, at far higher rates than non-minorities. Research on racial
profiling shows that not only do minority drivers experience more traffic
stops than do non-minority drivers, but that once stopped, minorities are
subject to higher rates of searches, arrests, and formal charges than similarly
situated non-minority drivers.
Provides powerful incentives for wrongful arrests, racial profiling, and other
abuse by creating a private right of action against any agency that fails to
uphold the new law s provisions,while at the same time indemnifying police
officers from litigation brought by those who are wrongfully detained or
racially profiled.

Pay no attention to "The Common Person" . Now we know you are trying to rise above the quagmire of a lack of formal education and we will help you . Just listen to your intellectual superiors and follow our lead . We are pulling for you . Make us proud .

““The country crying racism the loudest is also the country that has the most of their citizens permitted to become naturalized US citizens, Mexico!!!

What are the countries of origin of newly naturalized citizens?
Of those who naturalized in 2008, 22.2 percent were born in Mexico (231,815), 6.3 percent in India (65,971), and 5.6 percent in the Philippines (58,792). Nationals of these three countries, together with those from China (40,017), Cuba (39,871), Vietnam (39,584), El Salvador (35,796), the Dominican Republic (35,252), Colombia (22,926), and Korea (22,759), accounted for 56.6 percent (592,782) of all naturalizations in 2008.

There is nothing illegal about AZ's law-if it is, then so is the Federal law since AZ's law is modeled after it. Illegal immigration MUST be stopped so we can control our tax dollars that are going to pay for all the illegal immigrants' medical care, education, food (as in WIC, foodstamps, etc), and the list goes on & on. They are helping to suck this nation's economy dry.
