I live in Tucson, AZ ground zero for the conflict over SB 1070. I wish AZ wouldn't have passed the stupid bill. Law enforcement officials could ask people for their papers before. We did not need a bill to compell law enforcement officials to do so. We didn't need all this negative government attention.
There are 12 million unauthorized immigrants from Mexico in the US. We can't afford to send them all back. It would cost billions (I forget how many). The average immigrant is held in custody 30 days before being sent back to Mexico. Studies have shown that they don't use more resources (food stamps, Medicaid, school, ect) than they contribute.
We need to reform our reform. We need to offer amnisty to the Mexicans that are already here. We need to make legal ways for Mexicans to immigrate.

It takes an ave of 10 years for a Mexican to immigrate if they already have a family member in the US. If they don't have family there is pretty much no hope, there is no time given. People are under the mistaken impression that it is easy to immigrate. If they could immigrate legally, that is what they would be doing! Waiting 10 years while your family is starving or you can't get medical care or you are under some kind of other impossible situation is a LONG time.
I have a life threatening medical condition and couldn't get the treatment I needed in IN. I had to leave everything behind and move to AZ with 2 suitcases to get the treatment I needed to survive. I was homeless for about a year. I was lucky I was going from IN to AZ and not Mexico to AZ. I can understand why someone would have to leave everything and how hard it is.
