It's more than a little ironic, isn't it, that Arizonans will work themselves into a frenzy -- to the point of passing a police-state ordinance like SB1070 -- because of a single case like the murder of border rancher named Robert Krentz, even though the crime is being widely blamed on Mexican drug cartel activity, which is actually a distinct issue largely separate from "illegal immigration". (Indeed, it's not even clear that in fact Krentz's murder came at the hands of Mexicans.)
And yet when a white supremacist drives up next to a mixed-race couple and opens fire with a shotgun because of their races, as happened last October, the case is greeted with a yawn. As was the man's arrest this week:
I don't know if they are missing your point, or if they don't want to believe that Az government pushed these stories. I get what your saying sweet. The governor went to the media pushing these stories about illegals to scare everyone. It was completely political. Talking about the white supremacist doesn't fit into their agenda, so why are they going to talk about it with the media. Crimes with illegal immigrants are way down in Az, so why all this fuss now. Because they need to lock up more immigrants to make more money.

I will not be bashed because I didn't feel bad about something I didn't hear about. I will not be hounded into feeling sorry for ILLEGALS. They are breaking the law simply by being here.
I do tend to feel some support for those "vigilante" civilian border patrols though. I would not hesitate to kill to protect my family or property. Those groups are the only protection some of the ranches have.

Worried about illegals in AZ.? Actually, I worry more about the one's here in TX because that's where I live.
What about these CRIMES?? Not going to bother going over it. All crime should have a consequence. ALL.
Oh, and I am still in favor of state's rights.
