Any one who wishes to come to the US is welcome but he/she must go through the legal process and NOT cross the border illegally. Our society is already overburdened to the bursting point in schools and medical facilities. If the illegals wish to have the same rights as some of the demonstrator’s banners say, they must obtained it by legal means. Otherwise they have NO RIGHTS.

Very misleading tag line. Tensions were not simmering, but exploding, long before Arizona passed the identical law that’s on the Federal books. That’s why they passed it. Incidentally, check out California’s immigration law. Almost identical to Arizona, and Federal law.

Here’s an excerpt from the California law:

(1) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.

(b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the following:

(2) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall not be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding documentation to indicate his or her legal status.

Boycott California?

I am always thinking about immigrants and decided to die for this cause. I was deported from UK probably unfairly in my point of view but I had to accept because we live in the world where the low sometimes diverge with justice, I couldn’t do anything, I was overpowered by people who I lived with for almost 10 years it was like I was dreaming the way they humiliated me.
We are in the age the humanity should think and realize that is wrong to condemn non criminal people like immigrants who are just looking to save their lives where is safe to do so, we should put in count that we all belongs to this same planet and for those who luckily are now in the safe or fertile land don’t forget their ancestors came from somewhere else searching for those fertile places the same way, if we go back to a human history we will see few or maybe none of us belongs where we are now. NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL. The funniest thing is: we will all die Why not enjoy together this short time of life we have instead of wasting our time disturbing or impeding others to live. We should give everyone opportunity to live better life according to their effort. Those who consider themselves legal don’t forget that someone have been illegal to make them legal. Please live and let others live!
Be a human! Help those vulnerable illegal immigrants who are suffering around the world sometimes are vandalized or attacked but they cannot raise their voices with fear of being deported.

Boycott businesses who hire illegals aliens. Then they won’t come. BUT, remember,if they aren’t here working illegally the American consumer (meat, fruits, yard work,contractors etc.) better be ready to pay the price for hiring American labor. Tis a conundrum.

At the end of the U.S. war with Mexico,there was a heated debate in the U.S. congress about what to do with the newly defeated territory of Mexico.
One faction wanted to annex the land from the Rio Grand to the Yucatan peninsula. The opposing faction did not want to do so because that would make U.S. citizens of millions of dark skinned superstitious subhumans. The Anglo perception of Mexicans continues to present day.
