"It's routine for immigration officials in Arizona to detain people suspected of being in the country illegally.


Monday, however, the detention of two men — an immigrant rights activist and a father of six in Tucson — sparked protests, frustrated local authorities and illustrated the difficulties of complying with SB 1070, the state's controversial immigration enforcement law."

    You mean the same laws we have had in the USA for the past 100 years?

    Naw, let's drop the law because illegals vote Democrat.

    If they want to live here, GO THROUGH THE IMMIGRATION PROCESS! Or stay home... We don't need unregistered citizens here sucking up taxpayer money.

    I like Texas' laws better. If there's a illegal immigrant on your property, blow it's teeny tiny brain out.

    If they come into our country legally, they have nothing to fear from immigration laws. So, be smart, and do it the right way.

    Let me think. I've been around for 57 yrs. and for as long as I can remember it has been a law that if you were over the age of 18 you had to have a state or some type of suitable I.D. and if a cop for some reason while performing he's duty ask and you didn't have it, you could be locked up for up to three days giving them time to satisfy themselves that you were in fact who you claimed to be. As for as I know that has not changed. Hell were I live if they pull you over for speeding they are subject to ask every adult in the car for I.D. And can take you to jail if you don't have it and if you do they will still run an NCIC on you. And they do this regardless of race or age.

    In fact they are way too soft on illegals, ask any rancher who has to deal with cattle losses, polluted water and the trash illegals leave for them to deal with. I would put up six foot electric fences and post in English only to protect my property and I'd make sure it had plenty of juice to stop illegal. We would be prosecuted in any one of the countries these people come from without hesitation.

    I have to agree with this because the point is plain and simple: You're not here on legal terms.

    I know it isn't EASY to become a legal citizen with the amount asked for, and it doesn't help that Mexico pretty much doesn't believe in teaching English anywhere, but it isn't worth breaking the law to come here.

    Sorry but if you have no right to be here, then you're out.

    Why not? Even though the trip alone was grueling back in the days, it was EASY for US, or rather our ancestors, to conquer the native Americans back then, seeing as they had no immune system to the diseases WE brought, bows and arrows instead of rifles, and sticks and stones instead of blades.

    It was also considerably EASY when OUR immigrants committed total GENOCIDE on them. There was no such thing as a TEST back then, it was downright invade and conquer foreign territory, and here we are today bitching about starving people in poverty trying to save their families jumping the fence - that they wouldn't even NEED to jump in the first place if a green card wasn't so damn expensive and difficult to get.

    Oh I'm with you about not just handing out things - I DO believe you NEED to come here the LEGAL way, and I'm SICK of the government granting all FREE STUFF to ones that DO come here by illegal terms, but once I learned how difficult it was to become an illegal American citizen, I was flabbergasted. It shouldn't be easy as pie, but it ALSO shouldn't be as costly as it is.

    Wait till one of them standing in front of your boss alongside you and that guy says oh work for half of what he's getting and then you get a pink slip from your boss then you'll feel the same pain that millions of Americans feel by them undercutting our wages to stealing our jobs and creating a downward spiral for the working-class force that are in construction landscaping food-service housekeeping you name it go's on and on .........Your whining about things that happened 200 years ago is not in the concern of modern day America .. That's a relevant!!

    The problem with the imagration problem is that you can stack all of those laws on top of each other and they still will not be enforced. In this Country we love to pass bills, but we really do not like to enforce them.

    The issue is Immigration has become invasion. Too may have come and we have lost our country and future.
    Where is justice here?
    Should we attack the countries they come from and expand into them so we have room for all these immigrants?

    I wasn't sure, did this article highlight a flaw in the law I was unaware of?
    Then I read the article, and asked myself, if the law was just, and the only answer I could arrive at was . . . *ABSOLUTELY!*

    If anything, the law doesn't go far enough, like "2 weeks on a chain-gang for the first offense."

    Mass immigration has destroyed the USA. Hate groups abound, Racism is rampant among the immigrants, and include ethnic hatreds with each other and us., and sexist hate groups of Feminists
    The tolerant liberal white people are being destroyed. Maybe on death bed.

    Thats true! And, the oldest human remains where found in Africa and I believe her name was "Lucy". But there were no documents in proving that she was born there, had children or what race much less her real name. Now, most people believe that "Lucy" was Black, there again no proof as to the race. Now, the basic question would be this. Who really cares?
