Its stupid. Cops are not immigration officers and not trained for such duties. Find a better way to get rid of illegals and let the cops get rid of crime.

I read SB 1070 and there is nothing offensive about the verbiage. Also the law applies to all illegal immigrants, not targeting only Mexicans.

Hello American, Your name says it all "American" make it to where it is not impossible for them to become legal and to be here so that they can be productive tax paying members of society. Thier job skills are actually not low at all and as far as the language...if we all spoke the language of what America originated from...it wouldn't be english, but thats cool every thing is still find.

Some people oppose the bill on a civil rights or human rights perspective. They tout altruistic values and ideals which may have merit in a debate. My question is this: For whatever reason when someone supports the doctrine of illegal immigration essentially condoning illegal immigration, aren't they complicit in facilitating the crime? Which brings me to the next questions: If someone facilitates or condones illegal immigration what should the legal penalties be? It is well known that employers that hire illegals are prosecuted. By the time an illegal actually gets the job, how many people condoned and facilitate that person to arrive at the situation where the were stable enough to secure illegal employment? Finally how do you balance privacy with identifying an illegal? Citizens have no authority to question the ID of another citizen and I doubt that citizens have the intestinal fortitude to allow sweeping police powers to hold everyone to prove citizenship at police discretion. Which brings me to my final question; Are American citizens ready to sacrifice individual liberties (by authorizing sweeping police powers) of 96%(330M)of the population to "catch" and deport 4%(12M)of the population of the US?

There are more Mexicans naturalized by far than any other country and they're still jumping the fence.

Thats because there are a whole lot of them. I hear you on both sides. I am a chicano and Hawiian mix but raised on the more Chicano side and honestly I am not all that happy about fence jumpers either, but I am able to see both sides and I can understand and respect those that go through so much effort in hopes of making a better life either for themselves or for their children. Sure there is good and bad in all nationalities but props to those of them that are not committing crimes and are doing what they feel they need to do to provide for their loved ones whether here or in Mexico. I think I need to get out of myself and my location and make it more about a humanity thing...and again thats whether I agree or not...thats just my point of view anyways

People who are here without proper documentation are violating our laws, and should be dealt with.

Well sometimes life's not fair. I am tired of the sob stories of a better life.

Why are they in Mexico breeding like rabbits if they can't take care of their families? If I have no money, the last thing I'm doing is pumping out a bunch of kids I can't feed. Maybe we need to be air lifting condoms over the border?

You do have a very good point on that one, I would not have kids if I was not able to provide for them. I guess it would be because since there must not be that much work or for what I would imagine not a whole lot for them to do, they just get to doing it, lol. Good point though, cant support them, then rethink producing them, because it's like setting them up for a very hard life with not too many opportunities. Got to be tough though...and I just cannot imagine how it must feel to see your kids so hungry and going without...I can almost feel thier desperation as a father and that is what makes me understand how they can leave them and be living in another country away from them, just so you can send them money to eat.

Illegal immigrants, emphasis on "illegal," are not welcome. My tax dollars aren't meant to support the entire human race, just Americans.
