  • "Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act " should be implemented in every state.

    Why shouldn't people have to go through the proper avenues to become a legal citizen?

  • If the process were streamlined and equitable to people from all nations, illegal immigration would drastically decrease. Eliminate the quotas and back door dealings and then we can focus on people doing it "right." There is no right avenue of admission for people from some countries, as the #s for those nations have already been exhausted. Why should we control what nationalities come to this country?

  • Some of it is good, some not so good. I think that having to always carry "papers" to prove your citizenship is a little extreme. AN ID...drrivers' license,should be sufficient!

  • You don't carry a bunch of papers you carry a green card!
    I should know because we had to carry one till we became citizens.

  • I would be proud to carry my passport and all proper documents to validate my citizenship. What "American" wouldn't? Our government and legal system has exhausted our funds and resources and time to cutoff "all" benefits to those who not only don't deserve it but has yet to "earn" it. And let's not mention how our healthcare system and trauma care been drained of funds due to patients that don't pay. But that's okay, that's what taxes are for, right?

    Under SB1070 all you are required to present is a drivers license, state ID or work permit. Same thing you have to show when you use your credit card. LESS than you have to show when you get a job.

  • No, what we need is Comprehensive Immigration Refom, with that SB1070 law, we as a country would be spending more. Each state would have to incarcerate each undocumented person in their jails, paid for by state taxes, then after they serve their time there, they'd be shipped to a federal prison to serve time there, costing federal taxes, they finally deported, costing more federal taxes. They way it is now we only spend federal dollars. The reform will help secure our borders by creating a path to legallity by doing background checks, and charging penalties about ($10,000 a person in total) in turn this money is used to secure our border not just a fence but have more officers aswell and therefore have no more illegal immigration. The reform also craks down harder on those that higher undocumented workers which will make them less likely to come if no one highers them. This is not an amnesty, they have to pay to be here.
