Arizona Law Showed Immigration Slow Down

May 3, 2010 by · 40 Comments 

The new Arizona Immigration Law recently signed by Arizona governor Jan Brewer on April 23, 2010, created tension among various groups which led various organizations to protest in streets calling either for a complete abolishment or an amendment to the said law.

Accordingly, since Arizona was one of the most prone state in the US for human and drug smuggling from the nearby country Mexico, the new Arizona Immigration Law makes it a crime for illegal immigrants to stay in Arizona.

The new Arizona Immigration Law which will take effect in late July or early August received various criticism from various groups. Among them, Peter Spiro, a Temple University law professor said that the law sedds “a clear message that Arizona is unfriendly to undocumented aliens.” In addition, Emilio Almodovar, a 13-year-old American citizen from Phoenix said: “It’s going to change our lives. We can’t walk to school any more. We can’t be in the streets anymore without the pigs thinking we’re illegal immigrants.”

In my personal opinion, the passage of this new Immigration Law in Arizona both has its pros and cons. While it is true that human and drug smuggling from the nearby country Mexico will seriously be limited if not totally eliminated, this law will also hamper the growth of tourists in Arizona as they will get scared that they will be subject for police investigations. This in turn might slow down the economic growth of the state of Arizona.

Nevertheless, the question now lies on what does a person ‘suspected of being an illegal immigrant’ in Arizona look like? How will the police be able to tell the illegal immigrants from the citizens when they demand their proof of ID? Are all the citizens in Arizona easily distinguishable from the illegals by sight?

What do you think about this new Arizona Immigration Law? Is it fair? Or are you one of those protesters who wants to veto it?

    I think it is well over due to keep illegal immigrants out of the united states no matter where they are from. If you are here illegally then you should not be allowed to stay. There were laws put in place for a reason and everyone should have to live by them. As citizens of the united states we have to live by laws of our states and so should everyone else. Sorry if you don’t like where you come from. There are a lot of things I don’t like too, does not mean I can go around and break the laws just because I don’t like something! It should be mandantory for every state in the united states of america. This is america land of oppertunity, but you must get oppertunity by the law.

  2. American Teacher says:

    Yeah there are also these crazy things called civil rights!! Which the state is in clear violation of!! You know the Nazis did something similar… you damn fascist! I don’t care for the idea of illegal immigration either, it causes many problems, but that does not give the state the right to withhold un inalienable rights agreed upon by the formers of the constitution. And they were openly racist, but still managed to form such rights! What does that say about you!!

  3. Anonimous says:

    I think that immigrants do all the labor work and with out them the US is nothing. Americans want to do the easy job while immigrants work their bud off more then you think. So This is a discrimination againts them and not fair because we are equal no matter what. They dont come to do badness they help this country a lot. Most of white people are in jail charge with raped. Black people are in jail for domestic violence. Mexicans are in jail for DUI. So that give us in idea that they are more decent. I just think that it hurts your pride because you can’t do what they can….. Don’t Just think about you put your self in their SHOES and SEE HOW YOU FEEL WHEN YOU DON”T HAVE THE OPPORTUNY TO DO MANY THINGS TO MAKE A LIVING….. BLONDIE…

  4. nico jones says:

    I THINK BLONDIE IS FULL OF S**T. FIRST OF ALL YOU SHOULD LEARN HOW TO SPELL “OPPORTUNITY” BEFORE YOU START CHANTING ABOUT LAND THIS AND LAW THAT. DON’T YOU REALIZE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THIS COUNTRY IS RACIST AS HELL. IT’S PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT ARE SO WORRIED ABOUT IMMIGRATION WITH YOUR HUSBANDS/WIVES CHEATING ON YOU WITH SOME MEXICAN THAT YOU FAIL TO REALIZE THE BIG PICTURE, WHO’S GOING TO CLEAN ALL THESE CARS? CUT THIS GRASS? OR PAINT YOUR HOME YOU SELFISH BASTARDS. I FOR ONE THINK ANYONE AND EVERYONE HAS FREEDOM IN THIS COUNTRY ASSUMING YOU DON’T BREAK THE LAW WHILE YOU ARE HERE (I.E, STEAL, RAPE, DRUGS, ETC.). BTW I’M CUBAN WHO CAME HERE ON A RAFT AND ATLEAST CAN SPEAK/TYPE AND ASSOCIATE WITH THE BEST OF YOU RACIST YANKEES.

  5. Corrine Smith says:

    The problem with this law is that there are no parameters or guidelines about who should be detained and asked for their “papers” It reminds me of the Nazis asking everyone “let me see your papers” to see if the person was a foreigner or member of a minority group. Once we take this step, we have to have the boundaries set because once you allow a free for all in asking anyone that looks “foreign” and has an accent for their citizenship papers without due cause that is unconsitutional. If you come to the US from any country in the world after the age of 10 you are going to have an accent that you can never get rid of; if you come in your 20s you will most definitely have a heavy accent. These American citizens or legal residents should be protected by law. Asking these people to carry around citizenship papers is reminiscent of dictatorships. Parameters and boundaries have to be set since this law is unclear. You could have the few klu klux klan style police abusing the power without remedy. Some may even enjoy this. Of course it is illegal to be an illegal, however many foreigners and Mexicans are here legally, including our cleaning lady who has a thriving business and our gardner who could be subject to abuse. The innocent should be protected.

    It is the employers who hire the illegals to save dollars that are to blame since if there were no work, they would not be attracted to the USA. There are few jobs in Mexico that pay enough to support anyone that is not part of the elite or middle class, while growing is still relatively difficult to attain that level when you start with no education for the poorest of poor.

    Yes if I were from another country I would not visit Arizona that is for certain. Of course, they probably do not target the blonde and lbue eyes although here in San Francisco they almost deported an Australian here illegally married to a MUNI driver but the public outcry stopped it. It is so difficult for anyone to immigrate here. Maybe if we got rid of all the illegals and abused the new immigrants like we did in the past, the “we sprung from the soil” contigent wuold be happier. Right now the illegals are abused with no employee rights. They want all Mexicans to be abused I suppose, and lump them all as illegals The main thing is to protect the rights of the people and only to stop people that are engaged in suspicious activity. It’s just scary to me that things can get so ugly, first unnecessary and illegal searches and siezures, then once that is considered normal, lynching and swatzikas? Don’t we learn anything from history? Apparently not. Remember what Germany Jews said after being in Germany for 500 years “It can’t happen here?”

  6. HYPNOSIIS says:

    THEYRE HERE ILLEGALLY! IM HALF LATINO AND I LOVE THIS BILL! IF WE WERE TO GO TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY WE WOULD TO BE REQUIRED TO HAVE SOME FORM OF DOCUMENTATION (RACIAL PROFILING??), WELL THE SAME GOES FOR THESE PEOPLE HERE. IF THEY DONT HAVE IT, THEN GET THE $*@% OUT! STOP YOUR CRYING ALREADY!

  7. it's me says:

    I’ll say it this way..
    if we go back in time and let’s say the native Americans would’ve put a law that says that every person that doesn’t look Indian must be put under investigation and deported back to their country what would you think the united states would be like now?.
    Don’t you think that the eastern immigrants were coming to the indians land and making it their own rather than improving it, or is it that you and specially you “BLONDIE” feel like we the immigrants, (because I’m a Colombian immigrant), are stealing the land from you? There’s no way, we in fact contribute in making it better and building it strong as a nation because we come to USA to work our ass off and all we want is to progress and you still dare to say we are meant to be discrimated and treated as criminals!! weren’t the irish, british, germans, italians, and the other european immigrants criminals too back then??!!!!!!for God sake OPEN YOUR FUCKING EYES..if you despite so much the communist regimen of Hitler and his zealot and violent acts against Jewish, WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING HIS STEPS..WHAT IS IT THAT THERE ARE NO WHITE CRIMINALS OR BLACK OR ANY OTHER “AMERICAN” CRIMINALS AS WELL??? nah i bet you all are supreme than the Latin American people or at least that’s what you’re trying to prove with these anti civil right laws..anti-human laws..but the only thing you’re proving to the rest is that there are so many ignorant people that try to bring down if not annihilate whatever they consider different to them, just because yes.
    but see it all comes down to this, jingoism at its dirtiest and lowest expression, it’s OK to want to safeguard the land where you were born at, but it doesn’t mean that you have to violate other people rights in order to do so.

  8. it's me says:

    oh and one day a lady started a conversation with me about God and then i started feeling uncomfortable when she said this “you know something, I mean, I personally think that it’s bad to be here illegally not only because you violating a law but also because you are lowering yourself to a non-human lifestyle, OK i said to myself, she has a point, but then she said this “and you know I don’t like when I’m walking around and I hear a group of Hispanic people speaking Spanish and then laughing, it makes me feel like they were talking about me, and i think that we live in America, and you are suppose to speak English not Spanish.” AS SOON AS SHE SAID THAT I TOLD HER GOOD-BYE GOD BLESS YOU IT WAS GREAT TALKING ABOUT “GOD”. AND INSIDE OF ME I WAS SAYING THIS “IF YOU HAVE A COMPLEX OF YOURSELF DON’T ASSUME THAT EVERY SPANISH SPEAKING CROWD THAT IS LAUGHING AS YOU PASS BY WAS MAKING FUN OF YOU, THEY WERE PROBABLY SAYING JOKES AND YOU JUST COINCIDENTALLY HAPPENED TO PASS BY AT THAT TIME. BUT YEAH THAT WHAT SHE SAID IS RACIST.

    Against the law is against the law….the end

  10. chelsea says:

    i support this bill to the fullest if your not here legally then your not supposed to be plain and simple things are hard enough with the resession we dont need more poverty and mouths to feed. if you want to come over here then get a freakin green card and if you cant get one it aint meant to be i have nothing against these people i just think its not right. and if its a problem that the police stop you then you must have something to hide. if your legal then you wouldn’t have any problems if the cops stopped you.

  11. romeyou says:

    The people for this law are stupid. All these righteous white people think they have more rights to be here than anybody else. When in fact their forefathers that came here illegally were the first illegal immigrants of this country in the first place. I live in California and if this law were to be passed it would be the governor’s job. Damn look at governor right now he came from way further than anybody down there trying to make a better life for the crappy country they came from. For all the people for this law ask yourself one question if you were in their county wouldn’t you be doing the same thing. I would enough said.

  12. chelsea says:

    i would also like to know what rights ILLEGAL ALIENS have? i have read over the constitution and ammendments multiple times and nowhere can i find that they have any rights or whatever rights they have that are being violated. they are here illegally and there life here is not going to be much better because of that. they cant get real jobs cause to do that you would need a SSN. so they do the jobs that no one else will do, its sad they come here to have a better life but really the only difference is that we dont have soldiers running around with guns shooting just anybody. you say it violates their fourth ammendment right to search and seizure but like they said in the movie blow the line you crossed was real its called a border and its there for a reason.

  13. marine says:

    To everyone who hasn’t been knee deep in the drug war. If you haven’t pack a child’s charred remains into a box. Or cleaned the blood of the walls, and floors, from a innocent family butchered to intimidate. Or any of hundreds of horrid things that happen in that war. SHUT UP.

  18. nico jones says:

    I LOVE YOU AMERICA!!!!!

  19. Lovetruth says:

    This is just another transition to stricter laws & requirements. This is a loop hole, to detain people without having rights. No one see it, it’s masked by the word illegal immigrant.

  20. Tilden C says:

    Since the Obama administration thinks we should nationalize about 40 million of these illegal aliens, perhaps he should house a couple hundred in the white house as a show of his great sense of humanity. Perhaps he could also house a few more in his private home that he recently bought. He could even let another hundred pitch tents on the white house lawn. This would really show the rest of us how our magnamous leader leads by example.

  21. carl chilson says:

    Two things….First, if the borders were meant to be wide open to everyone wanting to enter our country then there would be no “illegals”. The very fact that they are illegal means they aren’t supposed to be here in the first place. Second…all the bleeding hearts that cry, constitution & inalienable rights, apparently never read the constitution. It starts “WE The People…” not WE and anyone who can sneak in. Our constitution does not and never has guaranteed ANY rights to anyone but UNITED STATES citizens.

  22. HELL YEAH! says:

    I think the other 49 states need to follow AZs example and put into play stricter immigration laws, This country is going straight down the tubes and big companies are shipping jobs overseas, I know for a fact there’s a factory near where I live that INS raids and deports 52% of their work force several times a year only to have these same people back and working a few months later. We need to quit giving immigrants special treatment, How about letting OUR KIDS after graduation of high school, not to pay taxes for 7 years so OUR KIDS can get a leg up instead of allowing foreginers to come over here and work tax free for 7 years? Would we get this treatment from another country? HELL NO WE WOULDN”T

  23. shorty07 says:

    for your information some people wanna be here legal but america takes so long to get bak at you… oh for your info i am legal… watch in a a few yrs this law is going to contradict itself like always… you always gotta not be truthfull so they can like you….. when the economy goes down and they see americans being lazy there going to let the illegals come bak in…. fact: THE POLICE OR ICE is going to act like they dont see anything but the will see them crossing that border again…. time will tell….ha

  24. GO ARIZONA! says:

    Are you kidding me?! The only people that should be against this law are the people who are ILLEGAL. I’d much rather have my “papers” checked than have my children grow up in the same environment that certain parts of Mexico are facing right now with the drug wars, etc.

    It’s also about a little thing called “paying taxes”! Which reeeeallly bothers me. The Illegal Immigrants probably wouldn’t know anything about that though. My husband and I owed the IRS over $8,000.00 after a long hard year of LEGAL work. Totaling over $25,000 in taxes last year’!! How much did the illegal immigrants contribute to paying taxes over the past year? I’m guessin’ nada. And, how much did the U.S. waste on dealing with these issues? Probably more than the contribution I’m guessing.

    For those of you who think that you are doing the Illegal Immigrants a favor by protesting the Arizona law you really aren’t helping yourself much. They take away jobs that could be had by U.S. Citizens. They WAY under-bid jobs because they don’t plan on paying taxes. In turn you will be picking up the tab in some way….if you have a legal job, collect Unemployment, Disability, or Social Security. Think about it before speaking/typing your opinion.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the Mexican Culture. I would love to retire in Mexico one day. It’s a beautiful place, but I would do it legally of course. Why not fix your own Country and make it even more beautiful than it already is? There is only one way to start and it’s by staying there and fighting back.

    For the record I am not a Blondie and my last name is of Hispanic descent.

    I hope California makes this a law.

  25. My2centsworth says:

    Finally someone with some backbone. Hurray.

    I see the riots going on and all the chicken sh!t games being played and the RACE card thrown out just to make it interesting. It is amazing how many -South Of The Border- people are out there supporting -ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS- and protesting this as being unfair. Just look at how many there are that support – Braking the Law, lying, cheating, and stealing. Look at them, this is what they want to teach there children and others. They say they are Americans, yet they disrespect our/there laws. IF it is so bad — go back –. AND the cry about RACIAL PROFILING-. Throwing the race card is just another feeble attempt for pity – well I pity you if that is the only way you can get attention. Unless you use the old stand-bys like, Killing, Raping, Drug Smuggling, Human Trafficking, Gangs and Kidnappings. Making Arizona the #2 place in the world for these atrocitys is just another example of what was brought in with Illegal Immigrants. What do you expect of someone that has such complete disregard for Laws we have here in America. If you want to live like that then LEAVE, GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM.

    AMERICA – LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.

    Why has not one Rioter been arrested in those -demonstrations?-

    USSA is one day closer.

  26. juststuf says:

    So many presidents including the “anointed one” all stood on immigration reform but none followed through. Sometimes the states have to make hard choices to protect their citizens. Everyone is getting upset about the rights of the people who are here illegally, but what about the rights of the citizens. The Mexican people who came here the right way don’t they have rights too. They make it about race, it’s not, it’s about equal justice not social justice.

  27. CantWeAllJustGetAlong says:

    American Teacher….you can’t possibly be. Calling someone a fascist because they don’t agree with your point of view – shame on you! What happened to your civility? And Nico Jones! It appears the people opposed to this bill are hate mongers. Jobs are scarce pretty much everywhere right now. People are stressed out and insecure about the economy, job security, and keeping their homes (if they haven’t already lost them). Tensions are high. It’s easier to lash out at others during times like this. Instead, let’s come together and ‘think tank’ and come up with some solutions that make sense and could work. Try to see both sides….both sides…..both sides. Be respectful.

    American citizens are not racist. Most have very big and generous hearts and have a lot of compassion for others (given half the chance). That’s what makes us a great nation. It’s not just our plumbing and ice cream. Everybody has their own story for why they feel the way they do. Just because someone doesn’t agree does not make that person a fascist, a racist, a Nazi, a white egotistical bastid. Get a grip, people.

  28. Jesus says:

    i think that it is not fair for mexicas to be kikd out of there just because uf the drug smuggling i mean it aint dere fault u know it aint only mexicans that go to mexico and bring drugs its whites,blacks all kinds of races and i mean the mexicans are the ones that do the hard work like builting houses fixing streets ect. white race or any other are not going to do any of that its like ur taking them away from they tried so had to accomplish y take that away for imagine it it was you

  29. Jesus says:

    wat is wrong with yall ppl sayn that yall want the mexicans out of der i have my papers and i live in houston but put yalls selfs in they shoes wat are they doing to yall?? that they cant be here why are yall white people so freaking rasist ???? yall tha ones that should be kikd out of here man fo real

  30. Want to add says:

    I know this is a topis up for debate but, I agree with both sides. Yes, something should be done. However, to judge all of them is just wrong. Some are really “legal” and they are haveing to suffer because, of this. That is racist!

    On the other hand, we should not let criminals in to the U.S. if they are going to cause violence and drug infestation. This is a problem. Anyway, people stop verbally abusing each other you can’t change what is already going to happen.

  31. VIOLET says:

    I LIKE THE ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW, GOVERNOR JAN BREWER WAS ONLY DOING WHAT NO ONE ELSE IS DOING, OR WANT TO DO,OR KNOW HOW TO DO, AND SHE IS DOING THIS TO PROTECT HER AMERICAN CITIZENS, THE AMERICAN CITIZENS AND JAN BREWER ARE SO TIRED OF WATCHING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND ALL THEIR ADVOCATES OVERRUNNING HER STATE, I HONESTLY WISH AND HOPE OTHER STATE GOVERNORS AND MAYORS WOULD DO THIS IN ALL THEIR STATES AND CITIES, THIS WOULD STOP THE INVASION OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IN AMERICA. IT WOULD STOP THEM FROM HAVING THEIR WAY, AND USING ALL THEIR PLOTS, PLANS, SCHEMES AND SCAMS OF AMERICA, IT WOULD HELP TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM TAKING TERRIBLE ADVANTAGE OF OUR AMERICAN BIRTHRIGHT LAWS FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSEES. THIS WOULD STOP THEM AND ALL THEIR SILLY ADVOCATES FROM SPITTING AND WALIKING ALL OVER AMERICAN CITIZENS WHEN EVER THEY MAY PLEASE! THIS WILL SHOW ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS THAT AMERICA DO HAVE STRONG IMMIGRATION LAWS, AND THIS WOULD HELP THEM TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE REQUIRED TO ABIDE OUR AMERICAN LAWS, AND HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR OUR AMERICAN LAWS, THEY CERTAINLY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS OR OUR AMERICAN LAWS, AND OTHER LAWS, AND POLITICIANS ALLOW THEM TO FEEL THAT EVERY THING THAT THEY DO IN AMERICA IS ALRIGHT. OUR OWN POLITICIANS TEND TO POINT FINGERS AT AMERICANS WHEN WE SPEAK OUT ABOUT THE UNFAIRNESS ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA! ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT LAW ABIDING PEOPLE NO ONE KNOW WHO THEY REALLY ARE, THEY ARE BIG LIARS,AND LAWBREAKERS, THEY WITH THE HELP OF ALL THEIR ADVOCATES ARE ALLOW TO LIVE AND ROAM AROUND AMERICA SO FREEELY ON THEIR ILLEGAL STATUS, PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MANY POLITICIANS CLAIM THAT ILLEGAL IMMGRANTS ARE HIDDING IN THE SHADOWS OF AMERICA, WHEN IN REALITY THAT IS NOT TRUE, THEY HIDE BEHIND ALL THEIR LEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND JUST ROAM AROUND AMERICA FREE!

    OUR AMERICAN POLITICIANS CAN DEPORT MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IF THEY REALLY WANT TO, IF THEY STOP USING SO MUCH EXCUSES ABOUT WHY THEY CAN NOT DEPORT THEM! THEY CAN DO THE SAME THING ISENHOWER DID WHEN HE HAD SET UP CAMPS AND DEPORTED SO MANY OF THEM AT A TIME! SMART MAN!!!! I HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, I DO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, IT IS JUST TO MANY OF THEM NOW, THIS IS WHY WE DO NOT NEED AN AMNESTY OR A PATH TO CITIZENSHIP, THIS ALSO JUST SUGARCOAT ALL THEIR WRONGDOINGS, AND IT HELP THEM TO CONNECT THEM SELVES TO THE OVER POPULATION OF THEIR RACE IN AMERICA, I AM NOT SAYING THIS TO BE RACIST EITHER, I SEE THIS AS PART OF THEIR PLANS TO CONQUER AMERICA, AND BUILD THEIR OWN COLONY, AND JUST TAKE OVER AMERICA FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSE! AND JUST TURN AMERICAN IN TO THEIR NEW MEXICO, AND WATCH THE FORCE AMERICANS INTO SECOND CLASS CITIZENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, AMERICANS WILL BE UNDER THEIR COMMANDS AND ALOT OF THEI DEMANDS, AMERICAN WILL NO HAVE A CHANCE!!!

  32. Jared says:

    Look, a law is a law. I don’t understand why hispanics think the law should be ignored when it comes to hispanics entering the United States illegally, but no one is up in arms when a canadian, or someone from any other country who wants to be an american citizen, is scrutinized heavily and is put through a grueling citizenship process. Hey if we overlook immigration laws when it comes to mexicans crossing our borders illegally, and allow them to live here illegally, then it is only fair to ignore other laws, such as robbery, murder, extortion, child abuse etc..Racial profiling?? Nazi Germany?? That is a terrible example, and there is no comparison. The jews were legal Germans, and were in that country legally. There was an insane dictator who wanted to practice ethnic cleansing. Where are the parallels that apply here? None,as Hitler wanted to identify Jews for the purpose of torturing, and murdering them. No comparisom whatsoever, and as a matter of fact, if I were jewish, I would be angry at such an irresponsible attempt to compare the two. If one particular ethnic group is mostly responsible for having illegal aliens, that group unfortunately is going to be asked more often to present immigration papers, and that is not racial profiling, it is just good common sense.

  33. BRITANNY says:

    this has helped me very much with so many opinions. Since im doing an essay on this stupid ass law, which im FULLY AGAINST. Being a citizen of this country i am so disappointed. This is totally racism. look the way you people are talking, including every hispanic in the package of illegal immigrants, the real americans are the indians. ALL OF YOU DECEND OF IMMIGRANTS. i hope every ”american” is prepare to work on their knees on farms, on factories, painting houses, cuting grass, cleaning dirty ass houses, all for 8$ SO MANY IGNORANT PEOPLE!!!!GOOD LUCKKK AMERICAA!!! hope this law changes because i dont want my children to grow up in a country this racist.

  34. BRITANNY says:

    VIOLET U HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT YOU TALKING, GET READY TO PAY TAXES TO SEND THIS PEOPLE BACK.

  35. BRITANNY says:

    EVERYONE IS POINTING FINGERS AT MEXICANS, THEYYYYYYYYYY ARENTTTTTT THE ONLY IMMIGRANTS DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNN THIS IS JUST GETTING ME MAD,!!!!!

  36. CLINT says:

    I think this is the best thing arizona could have done America needs to monitor this problem alot better and this is step in a good direction. Also immigration should be calmed the fuck down.
    If more laws like this were to be instituted maybe so may fucking people wouldnt wanna come over here in the first place. Keep whites the majority All I have to say

  37. bill says:

    First of all, if 2 people go in a bank to get money, 1st person cashes a check gets money and leaves, 2nd person pulls out a gun, gets money and leaves. They both received money, but which one did it the correct way? Of course we all know. Well to make your entrance into a country by breaking the law is not the proper method. And this is the first thing that you do in our country, what balls! We couldn’t do this in any other country.
    Hey, if I could go into a country and earn more money and NOT pay taxes to work there, I would try to do the same thing, you can’t blame them. I blame the Federal goverment for sitting on their asses so long to not establish securities at the borders. So they shouldn’t be here illegally, but, what should we do now? 1) SB 1070 -ID them and send them back, or 2) let them stay and REWARD them by giving them citizenship, or 3) ???? got any suggestions..maybe we could ask them to turn themselves in,then escort them back; HA HA! they broke the law coming in here in the 1st place, so do any of us really think they would abide by that? I’ll answer that with a big NO!
    So, if you were the governor of Arizona, would you address this or would you ignore this as it has been done in the past?
    Personally, I think she’s doing exactly the right thing to be accountable to the people that voted her in, she is protecting the people of Arizona.

    You others can cry the b*#$#@*t race card all you want, but, until you come up with a better solution get your ID out and show it, it actually feels good to know you’re here legally.,

  38. really? says:

    i’m researching this for a us government class i’m taking. i’m researching the pros and cons of this new bill/law and we’ll be debating on it later this week.
    i’ve been reading through quite a few websites of information and opinion “blogs” you could call them like this one. and i am finding myself completely flabergasted at the bitter, narrow mindedness, uneducated, arrogant, conclusions everyone is coming to.
    i personally try to make it a point of my own to read everyone’s opinion and respectfully accept it, because it’s YOUR opinion.
    first of all, this is not a racist law. mexicans are not the only illeagls in this country. and i have nothing against immigrants coming in from mexico, but if that it their wish and desire to come here, simply do it the legal way? i don’t understand why that is so hard for people to get. if you want to come to america, come through the front door for pete’s sake. and i gratefully acknowledge that they are very hard workers, but imagine how much more benifits they could make if they had proper legal citizen benifits.
    and secondly, there is training for this new law. requirements and regulaions on the law enforcement. this is not a law for the police to randomly check someone for identification, they can only be checked and deported if convicted/caught for a violation of the law, if proven while in custody for the crime they commited while in the United States, then the government has every God given right to send them where they came from!
    please, stop being narrow minded and learn what your government is doing and their motives before bashing them and accusing them of being rasist.
    before you accuse your neighbor for the speck of dust in his eye, take out the plank of wood in your own.
    thanks.

    To the people who say why is everyone always talking about the Mexicans, and other hispanics being illegals, when they are not the only illegal immigrants in this country, I say yes, they are not the only illegal immigrants in this country, but they evidently are the only illegal immigrants wanting a free pass, when people from other countries who come here trying to get citizenship have to jump through hoops to become citizens. What makes hispanics feel like they can get a free pass???!! Because they work hard doing jobs americans don’t want to do??? That is the stupidest argument I have ever heard. There are so many americans out of work, that I’m sure that if all the mexicans in the country left tomorrow, there would be plenty of people to take their place, and they wouldn’t be peolpe who give nasty looks in public, take over with their rudeness, and lack of courtesy and good manners, as is the case with hispanics living in this country. They act like we owe them something, and they act like they hate and despise americans. They are the most rude people, collectivly, of any race living here, legally or illegally.
