Latino Stars Speak Out Against New Law In AZ Targeting Immigrants!

| Filed under: Eva LongoriaPolitikRicky Martin

wenn2729486rm.jpg

And rightfully so!

A new law passed in Arizona that allows the police to question members of the public they suspect could be living in the United States illegally and it also requires legal immigrants to carry their registration documents at all times!

Ricky Martin is one of the Latino stars voicing his opinion on his Twitter! He Tweeted:

"Equality is understanding that we all come from the same place. Racial profiling should never be tolerated, in the U.S. or anywhere in the world. We're moving backwards. Scary."

Eva Longoria Parker echoed his sentiments by re-Tweeting the message. And George Lopez added:

"Arizona. George Lopez is coming… Oops… I just got pulled over… apparently I fit the profile… Gacho!!"

Here! Here!

Who else is going to speak up?!

    Perez, if you want to be politically active for gay rights or latino rights or whatever, then GET A BLOG FOR IT. Please keep your political crap for some other place.

    oh yeah, illegal aliens are ILLEGAL. Stop supporting criminals.



  2. 2

    Yeah the law is pretty dumb. Seeing as there is no real legal way for immigrants to come to the United States anymore this law just seems ridiculous. How do they expect people to carry their documents with them at all times either? This is called America being Big Brother and wanting to keep tabs on people. Next it will be ID cards and then microchips, trust me.



  3. 3

    Im right at the heart of it all. Phoenix AZ. Its such a shame that something like this was passed just because the governor feel that the federal government was not answering her request to help with border patrol. They think this is going to make safer neighborhoods, smaller classrooms, lesser taxes! its bull$*** ! People are now going to be afraid to report crimes with the fear of getting into trouble. There are so many decent people here just trying to make a better life for their children and its all being ripped away! What is going on with this state, this country!!!



  4. 4

    Eh, what can you expect? its the US.



  5. 5

    What part of illegal don't you understand!?? Our laws schould be the same as Mexico's illegal immigration laws, Ricky I don't think you'd like that!! Douche



  6. 6

    oh please who cares if ur not a citizen u shouldn't be living here illegally, go back to where u came from



  7. 7

    I'm a LEGAL Mexican/American & this law is BULLSHIT! That is something called 'Discrimination'. How can any state/nation give approval for this? How about starting to fix our Rape/Murder/Child Molestation problems first before approving something like this. I can GUARANTEE you that these ILLEGAL immigrants are doing jobs that NOBODY else wants to do. Whats wrong with that? Seriously….WAKE UP AMERICA!!!



  8. 8

    Really! first the hate against gays now hate against hard working ppl….
    Not all immigrants are criminals and not all criminals are immigrats!!!



  9. 9

    I am US born and bred, but I have dark hair and eyes. So I am sure if I went to Arizona I could fall under this law. As a matter of fact I was at Walmart today and somebody asked me if I spoke Spanish as he needed help with something, and I couldn't understand him. I have a real problem with this law. I am sure if I drove around Arizona I would be a target, and so would plenty of other people that look like me, and that just is not right. My father was born in the below Italy and is a Naturalized citizen, but that doesn't matter either. The whole thing reminds me of Nazi Germany, and where people had to carry their papers around. Wow, how far we have come as a country haven't we?



  10. 10

    first



  11. 11

    I don't see what the problem is…if you are legally to be here…



  12. 12

    I'm going to speak up…although I don't live on the West Coast. AZ has lots of problems with illegals. Why should they foot the bill for people who enter our borders illegally? People who often wind up on the welfare rolls…but no, not always. With terrorism on our shores, we have to be vigilant about who we let in…this isn't our grandparents era. Soooo, I say AZ is 100% right in what they're doing.



  13. 13

    I'm sick to death of illegal immigrants. Get your shit together and enter the country LEGALLY or get the fuck out. Just because you get your ass here doesn't mean you belong here.



  14. 14

    I'd gladly carry an extra slip of paper in my wallet if it allowed the police more power to crack down on illegal immigration and the floods of illegal immigrants who have been terrorizing the borders and murdering innocent American citizens. This is justice for Robert Krentz and his family and all the others who have suffered due to lax immigration policies. Here's hoping the rest of the United States follows in Arizona's footsteps.



  15. 15

    Good for Arizona!!!!
    Now if California would follow suit, we could rid the streets of these useless social service sucking losers!!!!



  16. 16

    Enter when you are LEGALLY eligible. Why is that wrong?



  17. 17

    So apperently what they are stating is that is ok to break american laws. Millions of people migrate to Americal LEGALLY. this started when criminal illegals MURDERED a farmer protection his home and land. When a police officer pulls you over and asks for ID, is that illegal? should we revolt against the same laws put on all american citizens. before the "LATINO" community starts bitching, just remember these rights are for all Americans. do not be an ILLEGAL, be a LEGAL immigrant thats what this country is founded on.



  18. 18

    Guess what, illegal immigrants are called 'illegal' immigrants for a reason. They're ILLEGAL. They should be removed. I've got nothing against immigrants, after all, unless you are of American Indian heritage, we are all immigrants. However, if you want to enter the country, do it legally like most of our ancestors did. Be proud, become an American if you want to be one, don't just leach off the system. And I'm quite sure that like most posts of this kind, many people will chime in on how this "violates their rights". Guess what again, if you are an 'illegal' immigrant, then you are not an American, and thus are NOT entitled to our rights. You can't violate what you don't have. By all means, jon our country, just do it the right way.



  19. 19

    Now they're against poor hard working people that they can't resolve their immigration status in this country since we don't have an immigration reform.



  20. 20

    Blame the illegal immigrants.



  21. 21

    THIS IS FOR THE GOOD OF ALL CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. What is wrong with you idiots. Our rights are being taken away and all you can do is whine about ILLEGALS who are in this country. Using our HEALTHCARE, taking our JOBS.. I hope every state out there does the same thing. I for one don't care if I am ID'd. I'm legal. MAYBE IF WE FINALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE ILLEGALS, WE CAN GET OUR COUNTRY BACK.



  22. 22

    First of all Eva Longwhoria is an ass. I'm tired of hearing, "they're gonna pull me over because I'm brown!" Fuck you! I've lived in AZ all my life - 34yrs and I'm tired of all the illegals here that weasel their way into the welfare system. I'm what you would consider "brown" and I am not worried. I've had my social security number stolen and used by someone here illegally. Is that criminal? Uh, yes dumb fucks! They come here by the truck loads. Do they do jobs that most citizens wouldn't do? How can we tell when they're taking those jobs. Stop playing the race card and read the documents. If you think TPD has the time to target people for being "brown" then you need to get your head out of your ASS! We are short on police officers as it is. Do you think they're going to waste time targeting "brown" people. If you do, please visit your local proctologist and have him or her remove your head from your anus.

  23. MP says – reply to this


    23

    Why is the U.S. the only country that is not allowed to defend its borders and try to deal with illegal immigration mess? I can guarantee you if I tried to pull the same crap in Mexico my ass would be in jail because they don't tolerate illegal immigration. Go Arizona!



  24. 24

    Re: jlenoconel – What a douch, there are legal ways to get here. The same way my friends from England came here. You apply for a green cargs and then citizenship!



  25. 25

    It's about FUCKING time that dead beat latino's get a fucking job, get their fucking papers, or GET THE FUCK OUT! We don't want to support your FUCKING dead beat life style of popping out future gang members!



  26. 26

    most of the people commenting here are idiots! people aren't upset about the fact that they are trying to curtail illegal immigration, the real problem lies in the fact that they want every person who is not white and LOOKS to be latina/o to carry around papers proving that they are legal….are they asking white people to do that? NO, they are not. Straight up discrimination. I'm so glad i live in Canada where people seem to be a lot less prejudiced. I wonder if they are cracking down on all the illegal canadians in arizona…my guess, not so much. get your shit to together america!



  27. 27

    Re: Lucie in the Sky with Diamonds – ARE YOU TELLING ME NO ONE WANTS CONSTRUCTION WORK? CAUSE THE ILLEGALS ARE TAKING AWAY JOBS FROM OUR CARPENTERS…… IDIOT……. Americans need work. We didn't create this country so these idiots can come here and take away jobs from TAX PAYING CITIZENS.



  28. 28

    i think all states should have this law. if you are legal then you should have no problem showing proof. there are so many LEGAL citizens that are having a very hard time finding any kind of job now, but we keep allowing ILLEGAL immigrants to work here. and all of us LEGAL citizens that do work have to watch our tax dollars go towards section 8 living and welfare for ILLEGAL immigrants. i don't get how anyone can support illegal immigrants being here. It is costing the US money and taking opportunities away from legal citizens.



  29. 29

    THESE MAKES ME SICK TO DEATH I THINK WE ARE GOING ON THE PRE-HOLOCOUST TIME HERE AND WE ARE NO SEEN THE BIG PICTURE ILLEGALS GIVE SO MUCH TO THESE COUNTRY AND SOME PEOPLE JUST DON'T SEE IT WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO OPEN THIER EYES.



  30. 30

    Re: omfgnoway – Who the fuck are you to dictate to the owner of this site what he can or cannot post on here? WHAT FUCKING BALLS… I do not agree with Perez 99% of time here, but on this, how dare you. Your a fucking moron. Here's a novel idea, if you do not like what he post on the FREE MUTHA FUCKING SITE, WHY DONT YOU go and create a blog of your own to post what you do like to read.. Shit for brains..



  31. 31

    WE R NOT A 'FREE COUNTRY' we have limitations everywhere!!!! ITS DISGUSTING. I normally do not like u perez but Thanks for speaking out on this subject:)
    holy police state, AZ!! YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!!!!!! dont cry to me "oh thats my job(s) they r taking" I rarely/like never see born here american ppl working in fields or doing the dirty work many americans do not want to do, but sit back and claim whatever they need to justify their lame weak ways to cry oh poor me.. Lets them do what they do and rightfully so better than us/U.S. so Stop Hating Arizona!!!!!!!



  32. 32

    Noone needs to prove who they are. If you are here. You are here. Thrive, suceed, conquer and love those around you. People are afraid to make comments. We all know this is wrong. Maybe countries outside of the USA should do this to us. Like a communist country and look at us all crazy. Wouldn't be fun. Hispanic people are beautiful people who work hard and are thriving. May they prosper



  33. 33

    i'm all for this!



  34. 34

    Frankly I don't think the police are going to be stopping every brown skinned person they come across and demanding proof that people are here legally. If you're involved in a crime, traffic accident or driving infraction what is wrong with having your drivers license, insurance info and registration checked. It happens to everyone. Illegal immigration is a very real problem in this country and something needs to be done. We just cannot grant amnesty every 10 years or so and stick our heads in the sand and do nothing while the problem grows worse.



  35. 35

    Keyword in this whole article is ILLEGAL immigrants. Everyone seems to forget that not only are these people breaking the law by being here but we wonder why jobs are so scarce…maybe because you have illegal immigrants willing to do a job for $10.00 that an american wouldn't do for that amount of money because its not worth it. People with companies need to stop "hiring" these people and fork out the extra money for an american. And just a reminder if you don't like the laws here GO THE FUCK BACK TO WHERE THE FUCK YOU CAME FROM. No one is forcing you to be here I promise we will not miss someone who is not paying into social security but will reap the benefits of it.



  36. 36

    1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language

    2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed.

    3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, all government business will be conducted in our language.

    4. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

    5 Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.

    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 400 times the daily minimum wage.

    8. If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT options will be restricted. You are not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

    9. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no badmouthing our president or his policies, if you do you will be sent home.

    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.

    Harsh, you say? The above laws belong to the immigration laws of MEXICO!



  37. 37

    And for the record, I am not pro immigration persay because I do not think America should be flooded with illegals, but unless they come up with a better, legal way for immigrants to come here then this law is fucking stupid. Its stupid anyway because it will lead to ID chips implanted in people.



  38. 38

    Honestly, if you ARE a CITIZEN/PR you should have no problem showing identification to prove it. You get pulled over and asked, show proof and move on! ITS THAT SIMPLE! HOWEVER, if you are not here legally, I could see how this bothers you. Illegal immigrant= criminal. YOU broke the LAW AND CAME KNOWINGLY INTO THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY. WHY SHOULD YOU NOT BE PUNISHED AND HELD ACCOUNTABLE??? BC They are trying to make a living?? PUHLEASE!! That doesnt EXEMPT ANYONE EVEN AMERICANS FROM BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CIMINAL CHOICES!!!!! WAKE UP PEOPLE! Why do you think in Europe and other countries tell 'non-citizens' THEY MUST KEEP DOCUMENTATION ON THEIR PERSON AT ALL TIMES TO VERIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEIR STATUS IS IF A POLICE OFFICER QUESTIONS THEM!!! IS IT DISCRIMINATION THERE?? NO!! AND ITS NOT DISCRIMINATION HERE! IT'S CITIZENS MAKING SURE OUTSIDERS ARENT COMING IN AND BLATANTLY DISRESPECTING AND DISREGARDING THEIR LAWS AND WHAT THEY HAVE WORKED HARD FOR AND BUILT FOR THEMSELVES!!!! NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE!!! GET OVER IT!



  39. 39

    If your legal to be here then fine- get out illegals. there has to be other ways of cracking down on illegals, like stop supporting them with our dollar$ and NO, I WILL NOT PRESS 1 FOR ENGLISH SO STOP ASKING! Jackson NY just passed bill to speak American English at meetings, predominant language of the land- That I agree with!! If you are here Speak The Language American English!!!!



  40. 40

    Re: Renfamous

    Thank you.



  41. 41

    This isn't just scary and threatening for latinos, but imagine if the police can just ask people for their papers. 1984 sound familiar anyone?? This is such an abuse of power and is seriously scary.



  42. 42

    Re: BUTCH8844 – You have to be highly skilled DOUCH, meaning you usually have to have a degree, and even then that's not a guarantee. Gay people cannot even sponsor their foreign born partners to move here. The system is clearly broken.



  43. 43

    YEP- Not just Latinos should be worried - EVERYONE NEEDS TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS A HORRENDOUS PRECEDENT!!!



  44. 44

    Re: sparkys nemesis – I live in Arizona. Your an idiot. If you are illegal how do you get food stamps? Here's some fact you do not know because you choose to remain a blind fool. Illegals pump more money into the economy than take. I mean tons. In Arizona alone, latinos, thats legal and illegal, pump in up to 30 billion dollars into the economy. Thats buying stuff. Lets not forget, with illegal social security cards some of these illegals have, they pay into Social Security, Federal, Medicare and so on, and they do not collect on any of that. So these illegals contribute to your fat ass should you receive social security, unemployment or medicare. They cannot because IRS sees two socials same person and hold the money for the one they can verify is false. Billions, so stop talking about things you know nothing abou. Quit making up shit.



  45. 45

    Well I don't know, but apparently it is going to require a lot more than just an extra piece of paper because on CNN I read about a man that got pulled over with a CDL license that was pulled over and his license wasn't even good enough with it. He had to call his wife and bring his birth certificate and his social security card too, so this is a little bit more than just an extra piece of paper. Also do you know how much you go through to get your CDL license? It isn't just like a regular license, so if you ask me this is like pushing this to the extreme.



  46. 46

    Re: Lucie in the Sky with Diamonds – with this law. they are fixing the rape/murder/child molestation! i work for a bail bonds here in AZ. you know how many illegals try to get out because they raped/murdered/ and child molested. so this is law is not bullshit in any kind of way. i have lived here to long and seen the decline of this state due to illegal immigration. i am also sick of being asked if i speak spanish. DONT YOU KNOW WE LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! i am not racist or a bigot cause i hate everyone.



  47. 47

    Re: Lucie in the Sky with Diamonds – @ 7 - you sound like a fucken idiot and have absolutely no clue how horribly illegal immigration affects MY country……..



  48. 48

    I think Texas should do it too.

  49. Visa says – reply to this


    49

    "Celebrities" are such tools when it comes to politics and dealing with the real world. The USA should treat illegal aliens the same way North Korea does. Any of those illegals could be rapist, murderers, terrorist or pedophiles, but we wouldn't know because they didn't check in with the immigration office. From now on, when ever I see a illegal alien, I'm going to send them to Mario's house.



  50. 50

    Re: Isabella – And I hope when you are hurting, or dying off the side of a road after an accident, screaming, asking for help, and an Illegal is nearby, I hope they show you mercy and help you or, bad for you, realize if they stick around to help you they might get arrested, so take their illegal ass out of there and leave you to die.. Hmmm.. Be careful, be very, very careful for what you wish for..

  51. kjen says – reply to this


    51

    Martin and anyone else opposed to this should go live in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, or better yet, step outside the Hollywood bubble and see what's going on in CA in regard to people being here illegally. Do that for a week and then report back.



  52. 52

    Re: sockie – Another moron.. Folks, this is what happens when you sniff to much glue.. You get a moron like this making this type of comment.



  53. 53

    I don't get why people are so compassionate towards law-breakers. I work with a lot of Mexicans(all legal) and most of them are sick of how these illegal drug dealers are giving them a bad name. Most of the Mexicans I know immigrated legally to get away from these same slime balls that are sneaking over the boarders. If you've got to sneak you're probably hiding something- in their case, human trafficking and drugs. Stop your bleeding hearts for criminals. My husband is Middle Eastern and gets pulled over at airports all the time. He doesn't blame them. At least he knows they're trying to keep us ALL safe. He'd rather answer some questions than them slack and let a terrorist on a plane. His family being safe is more important than answering questions for 5 minutes. Same thing with the boarder. Get over it. People will judge you for a lot of reasons, regardless of race. People have to stop being such emotional sissy's and be realistic about safety.



  54. 54

    I don't see a lot of suggestions coming in- just critisiscm. I live in Arizona and it is a problem. For all the people who come in and work hard to make a better life there are others who are here to take advantage. This has been ongoing for years. My dad is Mexican FROM MEXICO and is LEGAL with his own business. Has worked HARD for our family- the thought of him having to carry papers is absurd- but what are the other options??? It is all about regulation and that isn't so bad if they have a plan for the illegals and aren't just sending them back- how is it protecting the border?? I want the focus to be more on "border" and offering help STARTING in Mexico and continuing through Arizona and California to get them here safely and set up.



  55. 55

    I know plenty of unemployed college age students who would happily work a construction job, if they could get one. As long as unemployment is still a big issue here, we need to protect jobs for the legal citizens.



  56. 56

    So happy to be a Canadian, this would be appalling and would have never been passed here, let alone heard of.



  57. 57

    Re: sockie – If they're illegal I doubt they qualify for govt programs like welfare and all that like all the white trash hicks we're supporting in the mid-west.



  58. 58

    I live in Az. And i say its about time! If you want to live here so badly, then come here LEGALLY. It really is that fucking simple. How would any other country feel if americans started living there without permission? It's already a law, Brewer just has the guts to enforce it. Why protest if theres nothing to hide? I would have no problem handing over my papers to prove that i am a citizen. And neither should any other citizen of the U.S.
    If you are illegal here, then you have no constitutional rights. Why? Because you're ILLEGAL. You didn't enter the country the right way. It's your fault.



  59. 59

    Re: VanGroovey – It's just logical. Who is more likely to be an illegal immigrant in Arizona: A) A white person or B) a latino/latina???? Quit whining about racial profiling. The Jews know how to deal with this crap at their airports and no one is complaining, because it's the right thing to do.



  60. 60

    We have to do something and I think this law helps. Its the only way we can get people that are not allow in are country out.



  61. 61

    I forgot i was living in Nazi Germany what next send the illegals to the gas chamber. This is a ridiculous bill that will never pass. And must I remind you all that this country was built on illegal immigrants. Hate to break it to you the only legals are the Native Americans. I know SHOCKING! Plus this bill would only force illegal immigrants to make their way to the states closest to Arizona.



  62. 62

    Re: BUTCH8844 – You are a fucking moron. England? Really? Thats like saying a kid who lives in South Central, L.A. should be able to get the exact same things as a kid who lives in Beverly Hills, Ca… How fucking stupid are you? Mexico is right at where a third world nation would be. Most of these people canot afford to feed and clothe their family. Most people who preach the shit you did or say that they ame her elegally, usually had the financial means and patience to wait to be granted a visa to stay here. Most of the illegals do not have the money to pay to start the process, nor the time to wait. Most european countrys have it so much more easier than Mexico. appls and Oranges dimwit..



  63. 63

    Ricky is so right.
    It is truly appalling that this could happen here in the USA.
    This is what "Taking Away Freedom" really means teabaggers! See?
    Not the healthcare mandate! Not your fear of fictitious taxes! Not the bullshit notion that Obama's coming for your guns! Not your continued tax participation in Medicaid! Every American damn well BETTER "speak up"!
    Disgusting. Backwards. Racist. Hateful. Unconstitutional-Just wrong on every level.
    And love you George Lopez! LOL!



  64. 64

    Racially profiling outside in Home Depot's parking lot is perfectly cool. GET 'EM OUTTA HERE!



  65. 65

    the most infamous line from all movies about WWII is 'show me your papers'. it is like Hitler has been embodied in the governor of az. humans sure are stupid. destined to repeat the same history over and over, around the globe.



  66. 66

    Re: VanGroovey – As far as I know there aren't alot of people trying to get in your country like ours. Something has to be down. It sad that it has to come down to this. But it does.



  67. 67

    Re: sockie – And your mother is a whore and the child of a wombat, your father is a scumbag, puke, shit for brains dirtbag that got with your hoe of a mom to create a douche like you. Take your hate filled words and shove up that tunnel of an ass of yours, and choke on it you pathetic, shitty excuse for a human..



  68. 68

    This thing is getting blown WAY out of proportion. There isn't one racial element in the law. Furthermore, no one is going to go door to door looking for illegals. It's merely another tool for law enforcement. For example, if a cop pulls over someone for speeding and they have reasonable cause to suspect they are illegal, i.e., no ID, doesn't speak English (yes, I know it's not illegal not to speak English), they can ask them to provide documentation that they are here legally. 7 out of the last 8 police murders in Phoenix have been committed by illegals. Something has to be done.



  69. 69

    if you're not in MY country illegally, you should have no problem carrying some extra ID around. All American citizen's need to have forms of ID - they're called driver licenses or photo ID cards. Ricky/Eva are entitled to their opinion, which they're allowed to have in America I might add, since "we're moving backwards" so quickly. George sounds extremely immature and purely biased with a comment like that….most of the family here illegally Georgie???



  70. 70

    I mean I'm not one that likes illegal immigrants. I do think that if you live in the country you should speak the language and it used to annoy me in school how many kids didnt speak english but still thats just racial profiling. if youre gonna do this do it to EVERYONE. Latinos arent the only immigrants in this country.



  71. 71

    What's the big deal? It's an extra piece of paper. If you are so worried, become a citizen or GET OUT!!!



  72. 72

    this is SOOO wrong! this is just a start to strip people away of their basic freedoms!



  73. 73

    Re: jvstout69

    I totally agree. We've got to start somewhere and this is better than nothing. The real issue is whether or not our government will actively start protecting our boarders- like every other country does. And unless we put the pressure on, they never will.
    We need to know who's coming in for safety reasons. We've got enough criminals of our own without having to deal with all of the ones running under the raydar- that's no good for any of us no matter what our race is.



  74. 74

    Re: jvstout69 – Who do you suggest fork over the money to pay the bill to get these people "safely set up"? This is not the american citizens problem. If I wanted to move to any country there would be no one there to help me. I would have to do it LEGALLY and fork out my own money for all expenses as I should. Another example of people coming to this country and expecting to get things for free.



  75. 75

    Illegals are a problem. They are putting a strain on our overcrowded schools and prison population! Why should I pay taxes when they don't? Here are Mexico's immigration laws! 1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language

    2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers
    allowed.

    3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no
    special ballots for elections, all government business will be
    conducted
    in our language.

    4. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they
    are here.

    5 Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no
    food
    stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.

    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount
    equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

    8. If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT
    options will be restricted. You are not allowed waterfront property.
    That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

    9. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign
    flag, no political organizing, no badmouthing our president or his
    policies, if you do you will be sent home.

    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down
    and sent straight to jail.

    Harsh, you say? The above laws belong to the immigration laws of
    MEXICO!

    Maybe they will come and pick up your fat ass and shit you back to Cuba BB!

    I live smack dab in Phoenix. I live in a part of Phoenix where this law might imact most of the residents around here. I am Puerto Rican, like Ricky so I am legal. I belong to a group fighting this that is close to 40k strong. This bill will fall. It is unconstitutional and unenforceble. They already have laws and ways of dealing with illegals. if arrested for a crime, felony or misdemeanor, they can check their status then. This new law will give law enforcemnt the ability to pull someone over either in a vehicle or walking down the street, and question their leagality. If you are an american, like all Puerto ricans are, but speak only spanish and do not undertsand english, you can be arrested, taken to jail, sit their for hours until they determine you are legal. English speakers can be detained. This is a bad, bad bill. Racist. How many white or black skinned illegals do we have in this country???

    70% of Arizona residents are in favour of this law.
    50% of the rest of the USA is in favour.
    .
    Personally I think this law should be applied to ALL of the USA!
    .
    I gladly would carry around an additional slip of paper or an ID to help rid the country of those ILLEGAL blood suckers!
    .
    Which part of ILLEGAL is it that's so difficult to comprehent for some??
    .
    If you are legal you have nothing to worry about; regardles of your colour, creed or place of origin!
    .
    And while we are at it, those "Achor Baby laws" should be thrown out too!!!
    .

    Re: Lilo lagoon
    The problem is it's racial profiling. How would YOU like to be pulled over and forced to prove YOUR citizenship just because of the way you look? How would YOU like to be required to carry around your papers 24/7?

    It's going to be ineffective - and the worst part? It's punishing actual citizens in an attempt to catch illegal immigrants. Arizona, you suck ass.



  81. 81

    I CANT BELIVE THAT WERE IN THE 21 CENTERY AND WE STILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS RACIST BULLSHIT!!!!! IT TOTALLY VIOLATES OUR RIGHTS AND BTW THAT DUMBASS LAW WONT GO INTO EFFECT UNTIL LATE AUG.



  82. 82

    So let me see if I understand.
    People are outrage that the 26th state passed a bill to enforce a 200 yr old federal law and also is found in the Constitution. Hmmm. where is the problem
    Illegal Immigrant are Illegal and should be arrest and deported back.



  83. 83

    The folks who are against this law have NO IDEA what we in Arizona have been subjected to with this INVASION. Don't tell us taxpayers what to do in OUR state. Our cops will do the right thing. All you idiots saying it's racist - fuck you! If you are that ignorant there is no convincing you, and we won't waste our time trying to convince you - so fuck off! Our state cannot afford them anymore! We are broke - we cannot even support our own citizens! These Latino "stars" with the big mouths… well YOU support them if you care about them so much! Put your money where your mouth is and come and see how well you do trying to support them. You won't though, just like Perez and all the other big mouths who want to add their bullshit comments - get your wallet out assholes!



  84. 84

    Re: VanGroovey – What are you smoking? There's nothing in the law that states they are targeting non-whites. To answer your question, yes they are asking whites to provide documentation. While, the majority of illegals are hispanic, many other races such as Chinese, Russians, Africans, etc., come across the border because it is not being adequately guarded.

    That's also why Mexico is a third world country, and why NO ONE wants to live in Mexico. Just extort it for it's drinking age and beaches.

    Immigrants are criminals, they come to our country illegally. Don't we have enough debt n the US from helping US citizens? Bring more people in that's real smart, just more debt our country will be in trying to support more people.



  88. 88

    For the record, my husband is white and border patrol questioned him, not me the brownie, about his citizenship. Relax people. This can be a good thing for AZ. Nobody is asking LEGAL, brown citizens to hop on a bus back to Mexico.

    Re: Visa – …Any person, PERIOD could be a rapist, murderer, thief, etc. Race and legal status has nothing to do with it. In fact, surprise surprise, most decorated serial murderers are WHITE.

    I suppose that means that we should arrest all while people, because they MIGHT BE serial murderers, right? Fucking dumbass.

    in my opinion, if you come across the border then it should be legally. if you're not here to cause trouble then why can't you you obtain citizenship ?! i'm tired of having to have someone translate information. i perfectly fine with mexicans coming to the US as long as it's legal. & i don't feel that this law is discrimination. heaven forbid you have to carry your documentation that you are, indeed, here legally. i think it's great.

    Re: laura_2Re: renkae – @ 80 - I do carry around my "papers' 24/7. 365 - it's called my driver's license.

    i'm hispanic and i am for the law. there is too much violence crossing our borders. i'm not saying all immigrants are criminals, but there have been thousands of deaths due to drugs crossing over, ect. i don't agree that they should just target only hispanics, but they have the right idea.



  93. 93

    This new law has me so angry. People are so misinformed about "illegals." Latinos are hardworking individuals! And if an illegal commits a crime then yes I agree they should be deported. It's so hard for people to come into this country legally now and so they come illegally to work and provide a better future for their children! I am a product of this and have an amazing life and opportunities thanks to my Father's sacrifice. People forget that this country was built on immigration!!!!



  94. 94

    Racial profiling! All this will do is take the US backwards. Its Unfair bc hispanic and other people who "look" like immigrants will targeted. Its highly unlikely they'll target irish immigrants who have expired visas bc of theyre white skin and able to acculurate and blend in with (white) americans. Im not against irish immigrants but this will primarily impact hispanics and other people who Dont look american or should i say 'white'. I hope this law does Not get passed.

    Yes, people that make $200 a month in Latin America should have to pay $2,000 USD CASH just to REQUEST legal residency…..Oh, and their AMERICAN BORN SPOUSES should have to FINANCIALLY QUALIFY just to sponsor them for residency. Guess what? THAT'S CURRENT IMMIGRATION LAW!

    Maybe if the U.S. stopped PENALIZING people and stopped making it COST PROHIBITIVE to be legal we wouldn't have this problem with illegal immigration. I don't recall my Colonial & 20th century European ancestors having to pay such EXORBITANT fees to live & work in the United States.

    What was that about "give me your poor?" The U.S. doesn't want POOR immigrants, that's evident by their RIDICULOUS immigration laws. And try speaking to a REAL PERSON at USCIS…That's nearly as impossible as finding a Supervisor in the Department of Homeland Security that actually has a clue about immigration laws and procedures.

    I'm a Natural Born U.S. Citizen and I've had to experience the BS that is USCIS and DHS…Oh, and if you've ever lived outside of the U.S. for an extended period of time and return home, DHS gives you sh*t about that too. I've never felt so UNWELCOME in my OWN country after a 9 hour flight!



  96. 96

    So we are called racists and haters, cause we are trying to stop people from breaking the law. Damn, you peeps are dumb. Did you also know that 1 out of 3 prisoners in our country are illegals?? Oh, no, they are all here to work. Then do it the right way and you are welcome here. They come here illegal, so they dont have to pay taxes, so hard working pepole like me, can pay for them. If they did it the legal way, then I would be happy to help them out. We are all imigrants, but most of us did it the right way and contribute to our country. If this was us going into Mexico or any other country, they would not stand for it, but we are the ones called racists!!



  97. 97

    I come from a family of immigrants - but they were legal.

    They came from Italy to Ellis Island. Even though they were proud of their heritage and customs they wanted to assimilate to THIS COUNTRY.

    They paid their taxes, they followed laws, looked forward to voting and they learned ENGLISH and taught their children to follow the same route.

    That's the difference and that is why so many people like me are fed up with this double standard when it comes to illegal immigrants.



  98. 98

    Wow!!!! how stupid are you really…… So tired of people talking about illegals getting walfare and other benefits!!!!!! You have to have a VALID SOCIAL ## AND IF THEY ARE ILLEGAL THAT MEANS THEY DON'T HAVE A SSN……. SO THEY DON'T GET ANYTHING…. STOP BITCHING ABOUT SOME SHIT YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT!!!!!!



  99. 99

    This will only promite discrimination! This is wrong! This law should Not be passed!

    Re: Keepin~It~Reel – THANKS FOR THIS!!! AMERCIANS WHO OPPOSE PUNISHING THOSE THAT DISREGARD OUR LAWS NEED TO KNOW THIS!!
