i am going to get bashed for this but i dont care

i dont see whats wrong w/the new law in arizona. u want 2 b in this country do it the right way, thousands have. dont come over here & hang up your flag & want us to speak ur language if ur country was so great go back. i cant stand it when people give me an attitude cuz i cant understand them or i because i only speak english. when i want overseas no one tried to speak english to me they expected me to know their language & u know what, thats cool. i was a guest in their country. i see nothing wrong with knowing how to speak a second language, my daughter has learned spanish from handy manny & thats cool!im not racist either. im just tired of people doing things illegally & getting away with it. i have never done anything illegally and thats not hard to do. I dont care if you want to live here but do it the right way. dont expect us to change everything 4 u. u didnt like ur country thats why u left!

  • The state is merely doing what it has to in order to protect its LEGAL citizens because the Federal Government has FAILED.

  • I also agree.... Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't we all supposed to carry some sort of ID with us anyway? I can see some potential problems with this (like people not keeping an ID with them) but they work out all the kinks if given a chance.

  • On top of that, they also said that they just use Arizona as a transient state. They then move on to the rest of the country, and cause all kinds of havoc. Not all of them, obviously. BUT, the ones that are here illegally are costing this country a shit-ton of money. Not including law enforcement costs, either. Healthcare costs alone. And I agree, we are required to carry ID at all times, right? Just because we have so many freedoms, it's used as an excuse to come here. It's unreal. I would think that the legals would push harder for laws since things are made hard for them. If it was much more difficult, pretty much impossible, to get here illegally, this wouldn't be an issue.

  • There are a lot of paranoid people that say the cops are going to pull them over for no reason just to see if they are legal or not. The police have to have reasonable cause to pull them over. Just like the police can't search your vehicle w/o reasonable cause. They are just looking for a reason to scream racism. This country spends too much money on illegals and their anchor babies.

    Police will use any excuse available to pull you over, broken tail light, etc, the search peoples vehicle all the time without reasonable cause, they are the first ones to break the law in order to stop people, it is done on an everyday basis, my problem with this law is that it is unconstitutional, and I doubt it if it will continue to other states.
