  • Also, I would like to add something. If they do that, big events such as superbowls, Final Four, and any sporting events will be hurting considering a lot of the INS will be investigating people. To say the very least, our economy will go even more down the tubes than it already is!!!

  • Ugh..
    It's horrible and wrong how they're going about it. It's racial profiling. What scares me is that if anyone has a reason to suspect that you look like you're not "white" they will ask for papers and any other documentation. If you don't have it, citizen or not, you go to jail. What is this country coming down to?

  • The Bill would allow law enforcement to demand proof of citizenship from anyone they find suspicious.

    Daniel Rodriguez, 24, a member of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition, gives hundreds of protesters instructions Friday on how to march around the state Capitol. The group is marching against the immigration bill waiting on the desk of Gov. Jan Brewer.

  • Bill 1070 makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally. It requires local law enforcement to determine an individual's immigration status if an officer suspects that person is in the country illegally.

  • Spanish-language Radio Campesina was urging everyone to go the Capitol on Friday but also cautioned to be careful not to provoke anyone.

    Travis Franklin, 24, stood amid the crowd holding a sign that read, "Brewer, I pay your paycheck. So now sign senate bill 1070."

    "I'm here to voice my opinion," Franklin said. "Some people called me a racist bastard, I'm not a racist."

    The bill is not perfect, Franklin said, but he is willing to support it because he believes that something is better than nothing. A Rasmussen poll of 500 people shows that 70 percent of Arizonans also support the bill.

  • Arizona has an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants and is the state with the most illegal border crossings, with the harsh, remote desert serving as the gateway for thousands of Mexicans and Central Americans.


    Other provisions of the bill allow lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws, and make it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them
