Opponents are dropping legal challenges against AZ immigration Law. Coudn't they get enough voters to sign the petition?

The two proposed referendum drives challenging Arizona's new sweeping law targeting illegal immigration are being abandoned.

70% of Arizona agrees with the bill. Do you think they realized their petitions were a worthless endeavor?

  • I wouldn't be surprised in the least if it was rather difficult to find enough REGISTERED VOTERS in the state of AZ to sign these petitions.  The bill is not racist.  The bill mimics Federal Law and is not unconstitutional.

  • Very well could be the reason. These groups in the state just can't garner the support they need. The people of AZ are scared to death for good reason. They have had enough and this is what they want. All the rallies and protests were mostly illegals themselves brought in by mostly unions and progressive groups trying to appear as if they had huge amounts of support. They don't and they won't.

  • Maybe some are starting to realize that there is not much left they can do to get the illegals out & scare them from coming back without a visa.

    I mean, seriously....what else should they do? Is there actually a better way to help the illegals get out of here? I have mixed feelings about it. I thinkt he racial profiling will suck & many LEGAL mexicans will probably get harrassed. But, i also think that something needs to be done about the problem & this is taking a step in the right direction.

  • I just bet other states like CA, NM and TX are keeping a close eye on AZ on how it all panning out. It's long overdue.
