  • It's a bad law that may not result in any convictions. The governor and McCain wanted all the free publicity they could get and decided to use this bill to do it. The bill discouraged discussion of more important issues. The unauthorized immigrants aren't hurting AZ. They contribute more than the services they use. Unauthorized immigrants don't stay in AZ, AZ isn't even in the top states in population of immigrants.

    The faith leaders in AZ are generally well informed about immigration issues. It's too bad a few elected officials were able to pass such a bad bill.

  • As well I know a legal family who one 11 yr old son is illegal. They are now going to have to move to protect him.--

    umm..if the parents are legal, how is their son not??

    Then there is my other friend who's wife is hiding because her green card got canceled do to maternity leave.--

    her green card was cancelled because she no longer is working? what? either way, if your friend's wife is illegal, yes he may lose his family, unless she become legal. right? not any different than if a pregnant citizen robbed a bank and was tried/judged/sentenced..she'd still go to jail, pregnant or not. i don't see how this is any different, other than one is a legal citizen.

    i can be compassionate for people with problems, but not at the expense of legal citizens. where there's a will, there's a become a legal citizen. shape up, or ship out back to your 'natural' country.

  • Because it is wrong how they are doing it, and it is affecting more than just illegals.

    There's a very long thread in newcomers that, despite going over the heads of hundreds of women who just did not get it, makes a very valid point. You are required to have ID to drive, to shop, to go to school, to get a job. That's you as in every single citizen and legal resident in every single state. The AZ law asks for nothing more than that - if you are pulled over for speeding or stopped for loitering, you have to present your drivers license, state ID or green card. How is it profiling when a cop pulls you over for speeding and not profiling when the cashier at WalMart does it? Why isn't it profiling when they ask for ID at your job interview? Even IF they really only ever carded hispanic appearing people (which they wouldn't), the vast majority of law enforcement in AZ is hispanic - they're profiling themselves?

  • Any body now can call ICE for any reason or suspicion.

    Technically, anybody can do that right now, in any state. People do, and ICE ignores them. That's part of the point of this law - to make a point that the federal government needs to start doing their job.

  • I don't see a problem with the law.  If you are legal then you have nothing to worry about, if you are not then that is what the law is there for. 

    Sorry but I have no sympathy for illegals.  FYI my dh , children and myself are all immigrants.  We went through the proper procedure and paid our fees and now we have our citizenship.

  • unity is nice

    Answer by sherribeare at 12:59 AM on Aug. 2, 2010

  • unity is great

    but I see no reason why religion should have any impact on immigration laws.

    Sorry but illegal immigrants are illegal, there are legal ways to get into this country.

  • it doesnt matter if they are staying in arizona.

    they could come here for 1 day and be gone and hurt our state. its the things they are doing... drug trafficking, human trafficking, guns, cartels, coyotes, why is arizona number one kidnap state? why is arizona on the top for identity theft?

    im sick of hearing people getting killed on both sides of the border . over these things.

  • if there is suspicion it should be reported checked out and if u arent illegal than nothing happens. ive reported someone who i KNEW was illegal and nothing ever happened to that person its ridiculous
