    I think that law is so racist,they have no idea how many families they gonna split with This law how can they call us illigal immigrants when they’re been illegals longer than us in this country!
    I mean we’e just trynh to make a descent living for our families!

    Keep spewing your racist words.. The more you use them, the less affect they have. It doesn’t split families up. If your being deported for being here “ILLEGALLY” then take your family back with you. You all have no respect for the laws in our country in the first place.

    I say about time! Too many illegals BRAKE OUR LAWS, and think nothing of it. The corruption in Mexico encourages Mexicans to disrespect our laws. And when we enforce it they call it racism. As far as splitting families, well you had no problem splitting your family when you illegally entered our country. If it didn’t bother you leaving family behind in Mexico, then it shouldn’t bother you leaving family here. You are welcome if processed the right way

    I believe the law makers of the state have made a decision and it appears like all the other laws presently on the books the people who disrespect and break the laws will continue.

    How can people interested in a better life illegally enter a country break laws, bring with them all the elements that didn’t work in the country they left and expect to feel welcome?

    Makes sense that your name is WizDUMB. First of, It’s “Break laws” not “Brake laws”. (Tard)

    Secondly, they face a 500 fine if they’re found here illegally. Hmmm… think any of them will pay that? I would only consider this a step in the right direction if they’re immediately deported. We can put Arizonans to work by simply setting up the necessary bussing system to constantly drive them back home once they are found, and charge them 10 dollars a day to be detained in the meantime (which pays for the bus fare). This would mean that Alejandro would have to write home to his family for 100 dollars if he’s been detained for 10 days in order to get on the bus back to Mexico. Then anyone found should be on a list of “automatic deny” During detained time, they should be required to work off the debt if they have no way of paying. (Sure would be nice to have roads fixed or cleaned by people who came here illegally, just like Arpaio does to our innmates)

    The real truth is that there are over 20 million plus illegal aliens in this nation. They have all spat on our sovereign laws, our flag, and our constitution to break into America. Then demonstrate in our streets, branding foreign flags and demand their Civil rights. The intention was there, no matter the cause to enter America without means of financial support. The cesspool of businesses that employed foreigners, rather than a US citizen-resident cannot be forgiven and there should be a composite of heavy fines, business asset confiscation and imprisonment? There should be no conciliation for gainfully profiting on the backs of their own people? An estimated eight million foreign nationals have jobs, while the number of Americans seeking work is over 15 million and still accelerating.

    Another grand travesty is that the US State Department issues approximately 1.5 million work visas annually. I agree as the majority of Americans that we can always make room for highly intelligent, skilled workers that can be elusive commodity in our country. But what we–DON’T– need are mediocre immigrant job seekers from other lands that our own workforce must teach job skills, before those employees receive a pink slip. Immigration attorneys have been proven time and time again on fudging a person’s qualifications, to import into this country, large contingents of low skilled legal immigrants from countries with impoverished wages. The biggest issue here businesses cut jobs, and the low skilled are the first to go. That means the taxpayer becomes the payee of hundreds of thousands of people, who ultimately end up in the government entitlement programs.

    The E-Verify program with successful modifications could be used to disclose illegal immigrants, defrauding the welfare benefits system. ICE should recycle audits and even make lightening raids on previously visited companies. E-Verify must be instigated permanently and not a voluntary illegal alien reducer in auto licenses, vehicle registration, health care and other pertinent identification processes. Whereas the highly, technically skilled soon find a new employer. THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS, WE CAN DO WITHOUT THE LANDSCAPERS, JANITORS, AND CONSTRUCTION LABOR, AS WE HAVE MILLIONS OF US CITIZENS-RESIDENTS WHO CAN DO THESE MANUAL JOBS? The real $ cost of the illegal alien invasion has remained intentionally undisclosed by our Senators and Congressman. Few states admit the expenditures, especially California?

    Arizona legislators have seen the financially errors caused by blanket immigration to that state. Finally it will be signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer, the most restrictive measures to give law enforcement the ability to question any individual they deem as suspicious of illegal entry. Condemnation is already appearing from the National media generated by the open border advocacy organizations.ONE THINGS FOR SURE, THAT IF THE PEOPLE OF ARIZONA DIDN’T WANT THIS LAW PASSED? IT WOULD NEVER EVEN HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED? Illegal immigration has become a nationwide battleground and the economic aspect it, would pay for all our foreign wars? Arizona illegal immigrants who realize their time is up, will now flood California as there is no enforcement there. That why the Sanctuary State has massive deficits? Years of complete and utter irrelevance has allowed this illegal occupation to happen.

    To even consider another mass amnesty is beyond outrageous, beyond anything comprehensible. Our Lawmakers, who are subservient to the moneyed open border lobbyists or the radical ethnocentric organizations, WILL BE REMEMBERED IN UPCOMING ELECTIONS. Sen. Harry Reid, the Amnesty incumbent will be removed. Unless the high population of illegal aliens in Nevada vote for him? Yes! They will vote. A growing list of pro-amnesty, anti-sovereignty politicians is visible at NumbersUSA. TO RECAP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT IS ONLY SEEN TO WORK? IN FACT IT HAS NEVER BEEN ENFORCED. WE HAVE BEEN CHEATED FOR DECADES?

  9. Arizona New Immigration Law: Arizonas Misdemeanor for Illegal Entry « Daily News on April 15th, 2010 5:00 pm

    [...] This source says the offense for not having proper documentation is a misdemeanor! Does that mean a couple of days in jail and then back out on the streets? The bill is sponsored by Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, who is one of Arizona’s loudest voices opposing illegal immigration.  Pearce’s bill also tries to crack down on employment opportunities for illegal immigrants by prohibiting people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day-labor services on street corners. [...]

    What would cause “reasonable suspicion” of being an illegal immigrant? Speaking Spanish? Looking Mexican? I’m about as white as a white guy can be and even I think this is a cheap shot at Mexicans. I’ve worked various painting and construction jobs and the illegals often work much harder than their white counterparts for a fraction of the money. They live humble lives and work for everything they attain here in the U.S. As far as creating more jobs by deporting them… how hard do you think it is to get a job laying shingles? If the whites in Arizona really wanted these backbreaking jobs, they certainly would have been able to get one. The problem is no one else wants these jobs.

  11. LaLa on April 18th, 2010 7:34 pm

    i think they had good intentions at heart with this, but we dont know what “reasonable suspicion” of being illegal is going to turn out to be. it wouldnt be right for them to stop every mexican on suspicion of being illegal just cause theyre mexican. and we def shouldnt have to have ID on us at all time just walking the street. i think cracking down on businesses that hire illegals and making sure they have proper ID when stopped while driving are both good ways.

    and i am so sick of people saying that Americans dont want the jobs that Mexicans take! stop sterotyping as if were all upper class white people, there is more to America than that with plenty of people applying anywhere and everywhere.

    and enough of calling racism. all great nations in history have had to enforce certain harsh laws to protect their sovereignty. its not about racism, most Americans dont even think about that, get over yourself. come on people, lets be stronger than this. i do think that its important to first and foremost keep families together and respect those rights, and let people who grew up here stay. we could give illegals a month to register for citizenship, without any penalties, then if they dont, then kick those out. the point is we need to have constructive discussion about these issues without overly sensitive people calling racism, because the situation is mooching off of tax paying Americans and taking our jobs and its not acceptable. if you really want to help everyone then please think logically and work with your fellow Americans.

    Maybe I have not read it all. But where does it say we have only Mexican illegals?
    This goes for anyone How about Russians. Welcome to the real world they have been doing this in europefoe years…… maybe this will stop the next 911. WE must know who is in our country! Sorry.

  13. An Embarassed American on April 19th, 2010 1:59 am

    Why is all of this ok to everyone? What am I missing?

    My children have Mexican and American descent. My family are from German/English/Irish and Western Seminole descent. My European ancestors immigrated to the US in the 1600′s and I also have indigenous descent. My husband is from Mexico.

    Are my children second class citizens required to carry their birth certificates with them whereever they go? Should we avoid local law enforcement so as not to inconvenience our days by being brought to jail forced to proove our citizenship? As Americans, are we forced to hide in fear of being targeted and questioned because of the color of our skin or the trill of our ‘r’s”?

    As an American, I try to teach my American children the merits of our culture and our traditions. When I see people “touting” their “Americanism” by supporting shameful laws that violate civil rights, I find myself wondering what the most important American values are. Do we just sit back and let this go on? Do you have to wait until your ethnicity, background, or affiliation is targeted until you stand up and question the direction of our values?

    Sadly, I have to wonder if I would question anything if this didn’t hit so close to home for me.

    If the illegal immigrants coming from our southern neighbor countries were caucasian/anglosaxon/european, Negroid/African, Arab/middle east, or Oriental/Indian/Asian, I as a native-born american would not want them entering my country illegally and by the millions annually yet!!!!!! So why should it be okay for hispanic illegal immigrants. What’s wrong with hispanic americans? Can’t we see the on-coming sink-holes. Over-populating this country, by way of illegal immigration is bankrupting us. It’s negatively effecting hispanic communities most of all. The same failed practices they employed back in their own countries, they’re bring here and it’s disintegrating hispanic communities first and foremost, but all communities ultimately, all across this country. That can’t be a racist statement comming from me, that’s just fact and if you would care to look in earnest, you would see it too. Hispanic, black, white, red and yellow americans are all americans first and should be looking out for the best interest of this country. Instead, a large part of the Mexican/hispanic American population is pervertedly consumed with making this country a two language nation.When Arizona enacts their new law, it’s definitely going to have a ripple effect throughout the border states region and beyond and I’m very happy to see it coming. California voters will wield the next mighty blow, when they vote to pass their referendum on marijuana legalization. That’s going to take away 60% of the illegal trafficing dollars from the ones that are profitting the most from illegal immigration, The Mexican drug cartels and hispanic gangs from Mexico and countries further south. “Hispanic Americans”, stop trying to make this country over into another Mexico, or Colombia and try helping those countries do better by their citizens. The only other alternative is to annex Mexico and fix their problems that way.

    For all af u morons who think this bill is enforcing the law, u need to pay attention to ur background. We are all related somehow to an illegal immigrant. Pay attention to ur family tree. Someone in your family was at some point illegal. Just because ur white, black, Chinese, european or Latino it doesn’t make u more or less American then others. We all pay taxes the same way u do and serve our country the same way. This law is creating a racial profile. We need to keep our community together. We need our police to be in good terms with our community. This law is a discrimination law against Latinos. We need to concentrate on criminals who brake the law. Illeal immigration is against the law but not all Latinos are illegal. Bottom line racial profiling is against the law it’s inconstitutional !! You morons!!

  16. An embarrased Immigrant on April 21st, 2010 9:04 pm

    If this law goes into effect… I wanna see cops pulling over black people to ask them for their immigration status. I wannas see cops pull over Caucasian individuals and ask them for their immigration status. I wanna se cops pull over chinese people and ask them for their immigration status. I wanna see cops pulling over our newly arrived military guys who almost lost their life fighting for our freedom. If this law goes into effect I wanna see cops pulling over cops who are off duty just to ask them about their immigration status. If this law passes I wanna see cops pulling over Latinos who are suspects of being illegal… This is the only way I wbelies convenced that cops are here to protect and serve and that this law was indeed a missing link of our community.

  17. Stephen on April 28th, 2010 9:52 pm

    I believe that this law is one that makes a lot of sense, especially being in the state of Arizona which is right along the border. I’ve read an article that says that the Arizona prison system spent over $77 million dollars detaining more than 4,000 illegal immigrants last year. Also, in the article it says that in the prop 200 exit polls it showed that 47% of Hispanics that voted supported this measure. There is a lot of money being spent on people who do not belong in the country, and this law will help cut that number down.
