With all the drama surrounding the ridiculous billed passed in Arizona, several states are organizing protests for this weekend.

On Saturday, May 1st stand up and march for equality.

And if you're lucky enough to be in Los Angeles this weekend, go be a part of their march with guests like Gloria and Emilio Estefan also taking part!

It's not just a hispanic issue, it's one that affects everyone regardless of their background.

So check out ReformImmigrationForAmerica.org for more information and to find a march near you!

    Oh, PLEASE, The United States, as every other sovereign country in the world, has the right and responsibility to control immigration. The federal government continues to fail in this, so states and localities are passing ad hoc laws to protect themselves and represent the will of the people. I am Latina and I am a Democrat, but I ALSO believe in the rule of law. The rule of law in this country says you must enter the country LEGALLY. And, the government has the right to protect itself from law-breakers.

    sorry, I'm from Arizona and we do have a huge problem with drug related violence not to mention the havoc caused by illegal immigration pouring over the border. these stars should lend their name and money to save the countries that people are forced to leave due to corruption.



  3. 3

    Let's get this straight: If you cross the N. Korea border illegally = 12 years hard labor. Cross the Iranian border illegally =detained indefinitely. Cross the Afghan border illegally = you get shot. Cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally = you're jailed. Cross the Chinese border illegally = you may never be heard from again. Cross the Venezuelan border illegally = you're branded a spy and your fate's sealed. Cross the Cuban border illegally = you're thrown in political prison to rot.
    Cross the U.S. border illegally = A job, free drivers license, social security card, welfare, food stamps, credit cards, subsidized rent or loan for home, free education, health care, a lobbyist in WA, Billion$ printed in your language, and your right to carry your country's flag while you protest the your lack of respect.

    Wrong, Mario, it does not "affect us all". If you're legal carry a passport or a social security card, or an alien registration card (the "green card"). No big deal, we all carry our driver's license and credit cards.

    It is embarasing for a country known as "the land of the free" or the "opportunity" country to pull some bs like this. I myself am a female born in Colombia and came to this country because our parents wanted to give us a better life, as well as choices. I think its unfair to pull a bill like this when in all reality noone has a problem when those who are either illegal or came here to provide for their families are doing the hard labor jobs some "americans" WONT dare to do. Look at jobs done on our homes, they are done by those who have no shame on making a dollar the legal way. It would be a huge issue if white americans were pulled over bc they might seem like white supremacist . Most come to this country bc their lives are in jeopardy but there are too many laws to prove such thing in order to provide support for those who need it. Lets be real this country is going broke bc ppl take advantage of the system. You dont see the government really investigating those who have food stamps or living support while they are driving brand new cars. Its not about judging each other but helping each other.



  6. 6

    Bullshit. Every state needs to pass this law. Get these damn leeches out our country and back to their own. I have no problem with people who come over here legally but all these illegeals who sneak in here and then expect us to take care of them and their litters of brats are ruining this country. We can't take care of our own people as it is without giving handouts to all these people. Ship em back where they came from and if you catch their ass doing it again lock them up for a while then send em back again.



  7. 7

    On May 1st, I plan on going to every fast food restaurant around, getting my car washed, and eating a bunch of fresh picked strawberries.
    It's time the citizens of the United States started standing up for ourselves.



  8. 8

    Sorry, but I support this law 100%. It's not even an issue of equality. It's a law to help crack down on people who are in the United States ILLEGALLY and are caught committing a crime regardless of their race. It just so happens that Hispanics seem to make up the majority of those that have entered the USofA without documentation. Live with it. This is an issue that needs to be addressed ASAP and I applaud Arizona for having the balls to do something about it. Fact is, we are BROKE. The United States economy is shit right now and part of the problem comes from ILLEGAL aliens tax on the system by having free healthcare, social services, education, having to not pay taxes or have insurance, & sending the money they make out of the country. Those individuals are bleeding us dry and a tourniquet needs to be applied. The only people I can think of that would be against this law are those who are breaking the law by being in the United States Illegally & to be honest they have no say on the way things should work. Good job Arizona!



  9. 9

    Re: kc729 – How are illegals helping anyone? By not paying income taxes? By taking jobs from citizens because they will accept lower wages? By increasing crime rates? Thanks, but that's not any help I want.
    I have no problem with immigration, but do it the right way. No other country in the world let's people just come in and camp out. No more squatter's rights in the USA!



  10. 10

    I am so sick of all these uneducation people against this bill. This is not racial profiling. They cant just stop someone walking down the street because they are Mexican. They can if they are speeding, committing crimes….things that people are stopped for ALREADY. they will ask for ID like they do ALREADY. the only difference is they can further question if they person doesnt have the proper documentation. Everyone who is against this bill is basically putting down the people who came here and did it the RIGHT way. How is it fair that people did it right and others get a free pass? this country loses billions of dollars a year because of illegals sending money back home. if you are an american in mexico it is ILLEGAL to have a job. So dont play the victim. and Obama takes advantage of latinos and says he will help when he does NOTHING, he just wants them all to vote democrat because he knows he is screwed. SUPPORT ARIZONA and stop being blind to whats REALLY going on



  11. 11

    It is funny to see that for me as a well educated Western (European) guy it is practically impossible to legally work and live in the US, while on the other hand you illegaly let in non-English speaking, badly adjusted people by masses.



  12. 12

    Yeah, Gloria Estefan, and all other Hispanic celebrities are going to support this. They have to kiss the butt of Telemundo and Univision. Those two networks only survive and thrive because of the constant flow of illegal immigrants. Once these immigrants and their children learn English they watch the higher quality programming at the English language stations. Also, illegal immigrants often don't have computers, so they don't down-load music, they still buy CDs. And, these celebrities need to get invited to the Univision and Telemundo Awards shows, talk shows, etc. to keep their visibility in Latin America. Basically, these Hispanic celebrities HAVE to tow the Univision, Telemundo party line of continuing to allow illegals to flood the gates. Otherwise, they couldn't maintain those mansions on the water-front in Miami.

    Re: I like turtles. – Thanks for putting it all into perspective.



  14. 14

    kc729… I live in Arizona. I'm for SB1070. I have a drivers license and I'm italian therefore I'm always mistaken for Mexican but I'm not worried about it. This law will only affect people there are here illegally aka are breaking the law. Did you know that 70% of voters in Arizona approve of the law or that Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the US and second only to Mexico City around the WORLD!!!!! Google it… you might learn something!!



  15. 15

    Re: kc729 – Sorry , I know many Black and White Americans who are out of work and would love ANY job. Illegals create a surplus of workers in the country (you know, "demand and supply", basic economics 101) and a surplus of workers depresses the price of labor (i.e. all our salaries go down). It is basic economics. These "jobs no one else will do" is a myth. What it means is that the employer is not paying minimum wage, or not complying with worker's comp laws, or not giving legally mandated meal breaks. So, illegal aliens allow employers to act illegally. The legal American worker loses out.



  16. 16

    Re: crickets – Well said. I support immigration reform in Congress, but only if it tightens the border and ships all illegals back. I do not support "a path to legalization" these politicians are talking about. And, I'm no tea-partier..I'm a liberal Democrat!



  17. 17

    Re: Bromsnor – You know why it's hard for you as an educated person to get a job here— because they want to hire UNEDUCATED illegals who will put up with abuse. If we started throwing the EMPLOYERS IN JAIL, the illegal problem would stop immediately.



  18. 18

    Re: I like turtles. – I'm sorry but illegals cannot go to the DMV and get a drivers license- specially a free one. Everyone has to show their documents and give their finger prints. They can't get a social security card which equals to no welfare, no food stamps or section 8. Most employers are using the e-verify program which means that they can't get a job. I really don't understand why they want to come here illegaly, USA is really not the land of opportunity for them anymore. I just don't agree with the Arizona law. It is racial profiling. Hispanics will be the only one's asked if they're here legaly or illegally.



  19. 19

    The Arizona law is missing ONE THING. They should start ARRESTING EVERYONE WHO HIRES AN ILLEGAL. A good huge "perp walk" on tv of everyone in handcuffs, from CEOs to housewives who hire illegal nannies, and that would stop everyone cold from hiring them. If they're not hired, they'll leave. And, do mass arrests when they gather in streets corners waiting for day work..AND ARREST THE DRIVERS OF THE CARS WHO PASS BY TO HIRE THEM.



  20. 20

    Why are these people so upset?????? If you're here LEGALLY then you have NOTHING to worry about! I have to carry my driver's license around with me why is it so hard to carry around a social security card or a green card?!?! They're worried about racial profiling but HELLOOOO it already exists in America! I don't see the masses protesting the way blacks are treated in this country!



  21. 21

    I'm sure Arizona would be happy to ship all the illegals to Gloria and Emilo's home. They can feed, educate and house on THEIR dime. They can also have their staff killed by the drug and human trafficers who have killed people in Arizona. They can also have their son kidnapped since Pheonix is the kidnapping capital of the US because of ILLEGALS (meaning against the law). Fuck you Perez!

    22

    How about A DAY OF SUPPORT FOR ARIZONA! The leaders in Arizona should tell all Americans what we can do to support them. THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS, even Democrats, approve of anything that will stop the flow of illegals, and send them back. If it were put to a national referendum, it would win overwhelmingly. And, agree with post above of no "path to legalization" in a federal reform bill. That was tried already, by Reagan. And, as soon as they heard in other countries that the U.S. was allowing a "path to legalization" they flooded the country. Reagan failed by passing that law. If another immigration reform bill is passed that allows for legalization, it will fail again. We will be further flooded.

    Bring the troops back home forget about making a point and keeping them there. crack down on those who have bmws in their driveways while getting their rent paid or food stamps. dont allow kids to sign out of hs even if parents approve force education. Provide books for underprivileged communities, stop crime, help senior citizens, allow ppl to go to hospitals for emergency care even if they are illegal and willing to pay. Support diabetes, cancer, HIV cures. Make this country DEBT FREE those are real issues lets be real. I look spanish I am spanish and a citizen of this country and it would bed embarassing to be pulled over

    Let's have a march in support of Arizona! Just call the day and the places Arizona leaders and you'll see the huge turn-out. And, listen up politicians! No "legalize the illegals" in any reform bill.



  25. 25

    Re: sesela – Actually, the way the law works the DMV can accept any document it sees fit. That being said, some states are accepting and asking applicants to give a SSN if one is issued, or sign an affidavit if one has been applied for. Therefore, a SSN is only required if you have one. So you can basically just LIE. Just one of the many loopholes that are being used by illegals to obtain a license. Also, one document used by Mexican illegals as identification to obtain a driver's license in some states is the matricula consular card, an inexpensive ID card issued by Mexican consulates in the U.S.. Nevada is one such state that was called out recently for accepting that type of identification and was among 15 states named by the Federation for American Immigration Reform as allowing illegals to get driver's licenses. Soooooooo that being said, illegals actually can and are going to the DMV and getting drivers licenses. Also, you said they must provide finger prints? For a drivers license? Not here in New York State they don't. I doubt we are the only ones.

    Re: I like turtles. – With you on your post..just wanted to add one thing. I have seen with my own eyes illegal women who get here pregnant or get pregnant as soon as they arrive. They do it on purpose to be eligible for all forms of medical care, welfare, etc. because the baby born in the U.S. will be a citizen. Unfortunately, this is in the constitution. That's why it's so important to not allow them to set foot in the country in the first place. U.S. federal government: bring our troops home and have them line the border! We are under attack and invasion right here in our own country!



  27. 27

    Re: I like turtles.

    Couldn't have made the point of how lax our system really is, any better myself.



  28. 28

    You don't have the state of AZ's problems Perez. Problems with drug smuggling, murders, etc. Why should *we* pay for illegal immigrants anyway? This is n-o-t our grandparents generation who arrived in the USA, legally, via Ellis Island.



  29. 29

    Its about time !! Hope ALL the states do this and check for illegals. Enough raping and pillaging our country with law breakers.
    GET OUT.GO HOME.
    And how does Mexico treat its migrant workers. Google. Amazing hypocrites.

    why is that they (other countries) are able to have strict immigration laws regarding us going there but we are to allow any tom dick and jose in the country no matter what crime they might have commited in their home land and not say shit about them being here working for 1$ an hour since they are here illegally; running our welfare system into the ground; squatting, stealing and doing all manner of things
    screw the statue of liberty and her bring us your tired masses

    this country is falling apart and taking other countries problems and excess people since they still see us as a streets paved with gold country, isnt helping we need to fix ourselves before we can help anyone else
    we have homeless people all over this country who cant get help because the illegal aliens in this country are taking all the help and for some reason we are just supposed to allow them here, i dont understand what the problem is if something is illegal you get put in jail, if you are here when you are not supposed to be you get sent home as simple as that
    what is the problem with PUNISHING THE LAW BREAKERS because that is what an illegal is



  31. 31

    Fuck her. She can swim back to COOBAH for all I care.

    Re: I like turtles.
    BRAVO! Excellent post.



  33. 33

    SORRY but this bill is not racist. In no way is the US saying that if you look a certain way you are illegal. The United States is trying to protect everone in Arizona by all these violent fatal crimes why wouldnt the hispanic people be anything but happy about this? EDUCATE YOURSELVES



  34. 34

    If you want to run a blog to support gay rights or illegal alien rights, you should open a new blog. All that posts like this so is serve to alienate (no pun intended) your audience, which isn't interested very much in your personal causes. If anything, you are causing people to be negative about your causes because you keep hitting them over the head.

    Come on Mario, get back to writing your celeb blog. Tell your sister and ghost writer to get a real job, and come back and do this properly. If you can't do it, take your name off the top or at least let them sign their posts.



  35. 35

    ILLEGAL ALIENS have no rights in this country they are not suppose to be here !! GTFO !!!!!



  36. 36

    If ILLEGAL ALIENS think this new AZ bill is so bad they should try to enter Iran, North Korea, Myanymar or a number of other countries and see how well they are treated. They will be immediately imprisoned or put in to workers camps ! Maybe that's what we should do to them to for BREAKING IN TO OUR COUNTRY WITHOUT PERMISSION !!!



  37. 37

    I SUPPORT THE LAW
    I SUPPORT THE LAW
    I SUPPORT THE LAW
    I SUPPORT THE LAW
    I SUPPORT THE LAW



  38. 38

    There is nothing ridiculous about bill being passed in AZ. It's already federal law, its just AZ wants to enforce it since the US gov isn't doing their job.
    Why is it only latinos or hispanics are bitching about it??? And what is with these "celebrities" who aren't even US citizens bitching about laws in our country.
    If you don't like it, then get the fuck out of our country!!!



  39. 39

    I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT THIS MADE MY DAY TO SEE SOOOO MANY FOR THE ARIZONA LAW!! I was beginning to think this nation had lost it's MIND with all of this crying and screaming over this. Then again, we have over 13,000,000 criminals in this country that are having fits, GO ARIZONA!!! I bet they clean up that state PRONTO!!



  40. 40

    Re: I like turtles. – Get ur shit stright dumbass.
    1. free driver license really?? i'm not sure i cant agree with you on the one.
    2. free social security cards???well if they all had social security's than how does that make them illigal?
    3. subsidized rent or loan for home??? how the fuck are they gonna get all this with out documents? are u fucking kidding me..
    4. credit cards?? where the hell did u get all ur information.. cause to tell you the truth you hardly know what your talking about..



  41. 41

    This is insane. The reason that these citizens of another country feel they have some "right" to protest in a foreign country for their "right" to commit illegal acts in that foreign country is because, somehow, these foreigners believe they are entitled to be here. Why? I don't know. But just because they feel entitled to be here doesn't make it so. More states should follow in Arizona's footsteps.



  42. 42

    Re: kc729 – Just because you are suffering some problems and wrong things in your own country doesn't mean that some people in some other country should be obligated to take on your problems for you. Indeed, practicality shows that this really isn't even possible. America is imploding and we still ship out billions of dollars to help foreigners. Here's a thought - why not stay in your own country and FIX IT?



  43. 43

    Re: sesela – Right; in Los Angeles, approximately 40% of the drivers were never trained to drive, drive without a driver's license, and do not carry automobile insurance (figures from the Police Dept). Also approximately 40% of the L.A. population is ILLITERATE - they can't even read! You tell me that doesn't pose an extremely serious hazard on multiple levels to American citizens.



  44. 44

    Re: tahoe15 – "1. free driver license really?? i'm not sure i cant agree with you on the one."

    "…not sure i can't agree with you…"
    Then that means you do agree?

    I think the point that I Like Turtles is trying to make is that illegal aliens come into the country illegally and then get everything handed to them at the expense of harding working Americans who sometimes can't get the same things for themselves.



  45. 45

    How come Mexican Citizens get a free pass? I have several friends from South Africa, France, Ireland, England, Iran, China who were all sent back because they were here illegally. They then applied through the proper channels and eventually most of them came back and got jobs etc.



  46. 46

    Mexicans and native Americans were the first people here. These are the same peoeple really. Then the spanish came and took over without any legal papers then the white man took over with his own form of taking over using his made up laws to rob the indian and mexican. ok people cultures make mistakes because of greed.

    no we want to continue the same bullshit because of really one particular cultures comfort and safety zone ? If Americans are so worried about our jobs then why did we give all our work for china to do ? All this is very hypocritical ! Learn to love and help each other. The only borders are in your mind. wake up and smell the national, international community . If this was happening to your culture would you stand up? First it was slavery now the the brown man and other cultures ! come on people ! Get over your fears and start to love !



  47. 47

    And yes I spelled people wrong peoople ! See mistakes happen while typing and cultures make mistakes with fear mongering Start to love and get past our mistakes.

    Wake up Arizona !



  48. 48

    Re: kc729 – DON'T CARE!!! don't enter this country illegally, especially when it's ur plan to never leave.
    -
    -
    america needs to fight immigration, it may already be too late.
    this isn't 1776, we are not trying to get folks to fill up the space of a big, empty, new country.
    -
    -
    u wanna come to amaerica, cool.
    but do it LEGALLY.



  49. 49

    According to a recent Gallop poll, the majority of Americans SUPPORT the the Arizona law. And Obama has backed off his promise of immigration reform. Time to kick all the illegals out of OUR country!



  50. 50

    So Latinos are supposed to be okay with being pulled over whenever and wherever in Arizona JUST because they fit a profile? Because of "national security"?? Please! If only people weren't so ignorant.

    1) Just because people don't file income taxes doesn't mean they don't pay any taxes. What about when purchasing groceries?? Clothes?? Or just buying anything period?? I didn't know "illegals" didn't pay any of these.
    2) Just because they can't control their border down in Arizona doesn't mean has the right to impose a law of repression on all Latinos. And that's EXACTLY what it is. I see the 60s happening all over again.
    3) to "I like turtles": are you REALLY comparing the US to these countries??? That's just ignorant, really. If you want that kind of law, then maybe the US isn't really for you, although we certainly are headed in that direction.

    How about legislators not be LAZY and impose an actual law that controls immigration. OR focus on real criminals who literally steal American money??? Or companies that create maquiladoras in other countries?? But of course, everyone wants to focus on those that speak Spanish and LOOK Hispanic. It's so sad how ignorant people are.



  51. 51

    It only affects you if you're HERE ILLEGALLY. Don't break the law if you don't like the consequences.



  52. 52

    Re: I like turtles. – You couldn't have said it any better. Thank you! I'm sorry but if you are a Latino/Latina who is here legally you wouldn't be against this bill. Oh yeah they say it's racial profiling…ummmm no fuckers read the bill carefully because it's not! I came here from Central America 33 years ago, got my green card & became a U.S. citizen & fully support this bill. My friend are ragging on me because I support it & all I hear from them are "You should be ashamed of yourself. You should not support the bill because you are a Latina", "You need to support your Latinos", "You should remember where you came from since you were illegal at one point"……blah, blah, blah. It's about damn time someone stepped up to this issue. I recently moved from California to Arizona & have to say the governor has balls to sign that bill. It's ridiculous hearing about all the violence here at this border & something needed to be done. I'm sorry, yes I am a Latina, but that DOES NOT mean I will support every stupidity Latinos do. And no I am not white-washed just very well educated and concerned about my own safety. Now STFU & move on people. You idiots out there marching for your rights are just wasting your time. Hey here's an idea for you why not just go get your damn green card instead of whining about your damn rights. I'm sorry you DON'T have rights here since you are illegal. What part of ILLEGAL do you not understand? Morons!

    Re: chorizo7 – Ideally we would have open borders - to travel, do business, make friends, trade ideas, fall in love, - whatever you want. But as long as teh US is a place to run to, the Mexican people will never solve the corruption and chaos that their govt nurtures. The Government of Mexico exploits its citizens. It's a rogue state that destabilizes our entire region. If there are two houses, and one is irresponsible and tells the children, "Go next door for whatever you need." Next door, they try to be good neighbors and help the kids. But eventually they'll have to say to the irresponsible parents. "Why dont you take care of them? They need you to act right. You are destroying them." It doesnt matter what law we pass. Mexicans will continue to die in the desert, desperate to escape Mexico. If only a fraction of the energy spent protesting this law were put into trying to make life better in Mexico, it'd be better for everybody.

    OK, EVERYBODY CHECK OUT CHORIZO7's FIRST POST, where he says "mexicans were here first"!!!! That is EXACTLY the sense of entitlement that Mexicans have about being here illegally! They believe they are the rightful owners of the U.S.! Some Mexican-American college students in California refuse to call it "California" and instead used some made up, they believe, ancient Mexican name for it…in their heart of hearts, they believe the U.S. belongs to them. And, that about sums up their sense of entitlement and their boldness in parading it.

    I really dont give a shit about any of the posts previous to and after mine but I encourage everyone that is gay, asian, black, indian, martian, hispanic, any minority and non minorities or birracial individuals to unite and march, this is the first big huge major step along with prop 8 that the government is taking to harass a group of individuals. we dodged a bullet when we did not elect john mccain. this country is supposed to be moving forward but in a few years if we let these assholes get away with this I wouldnt be surprised if slavery was brought back to roost in this fucking country. wtf happened to the US? this was a great nation for all. I wonder if native americans ever asked the fucking pilgrims for their fucking documents.

  61. 61

    Re: YUCK – You are comparing prop 8 to the Arizona law? Wow you are ignorant. The prop 8 law is a civil rights issue. Meaning it violates the rights of LEGAL CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. The Arizona law is a law that concerns individuals that are caught committing a crime and are thought to be in the United States ILLEGALLY. It's not legalizing a free-for-all against minorities. What don't people get? I will bet my life savings that you haven't even read the law & just jumped on the hate bandwagon knowing NOTHING. So many ignorant people in this world. Also, "wonder if native americans ever asked the fucking pilgrims for their fucking documents." Wow another brilliant statement, but let's analyze it. I wonder what would happen if the Native Americans weren't originally so trusting, fought back against a people that were trying to take over their land & rape the natural resources, not giving a damn. What happened to the Native peoples of this country was and continues to be a travesty. But goddamn we have to learn from mistakes and protect what we have NOW before it's too late.

THEY BROKE THE LAW!!!! What is with you.. Equality for lawbreakers? Let's give Charles Manson the same rights? WTF!
    You entered illegally dumped a kid and think you have rights???? Take your entire family and get out and they, as citizens, can come back when they are 18 yrs old.
    If the USA has a open door policy, this is our fault voting in idiots that are liberal. Whatever happened to coming over legally, speaking English, and having a job or sponsor? Not only are Mexican's illegal, but how many terriorists do we have here? Hundreds? Illegals don't pay taxes but get a free ride on everything from medical to schools to housing to food.
    Maybe if we did focus on one group, all others will come later, whether they are Polish, Russian, Arab, Asian, Canadian, etc…. if you are illegal… you are OUT!
    Illegals need to GET OUT!

    Re: SolaLola – Sola Lola, you are inciting violent against the United States government. If you are an American citizen, what you are doing is called "Treason" and if you study the law you will see you can get arrested and sentenced to death for your crime. If you are a Mexican citizen, inciting your state to war against the United States, then that is a declaration of war. The U.S. has nukes; Mexico does not. The era of sticks and stones is long over. When Spain left Mexico, it did so because it had already extracted all the gold it could. Your myths of glorious wars are over-rated; the Spaniards over-ran you easily into submission and left when your gold was gone. But, you do demonstrate the mis-begotten sense of entitlement the Mexicans have over the U.S. Bring it on, hon. If you're an American citizen, you should be tried for treason. If you're a Mexican citizen, your government would love to know you are taunting Americans to nuke you. Believe me…the American public, if a referendum were called, would happily press the red button. Heads we win, tails you lose…lol…bring it on!

    Did i see fool say mexicans were the 1st ones here? Bullshit. Mexicans are a mix between spaniards who rolled over here around the same time everyone else from europe did, and native people of the area now known as mexico. So no they were not the 1st ones here. Why do you think they speak spanish? Fuckin moron. Also any one who doesnt see fit to protect the borders of america then get the fuck out. Its easy to live in MA and say that shit because yall dont have to deal with it yet. Go south or west. In NC where im at its abig issue. Those mexican bastards cant wait to get behind the wheel of a car drunk. WE NEVER HAD GANGS, we have plenty of MS13 now trust me.

    Im a cop.

    When i see these walfare baby makin bastards marching down the streets of CALI ( by the way how is your state doing? bankrupt from walfare checks?) protesting some kinda bullshit it makes me wanna fuckin vomit.

    I saw one holding a sign that said AMERIKKKA. Fuckin gross.



  66. 66

    We gotta stop these people or the whole USA will look like cali. I mean, why do you think CA is the way it is?

    Think about it

    How many of these celebrities - including you Perez - have an education? Why don't you people who feel so entitled focus your whining towards countries like Mexico, which are hemorrhaging citizens to the US because of internal corruption.
    I've lived abroad. Never once did I feel entitled about my language being forced upon native citizens. I chose to be in that country, and I showed respect.
    Sure, the US is a melting pot, but when did drug trafficking and border violence become an acceptable ingredient?



  68. 68

    In none of your stories on this Perez do you mention that this is a fight against ILLEGALS. You and all of these celebrities have made this a Hispanic issue not the citizens of Arizona. The people of Arizona had to pass this law themselves because the Federal Government is not enforcing the law.



  69. 69

    So these folks are going to protest that it's against the law to make a law enforcing the law and that it's illegal to make illegals illegal.
    LOL Good Luck {sarcasm} America is waking up to this BS.

    Do you know how Mexico treats "Illegal Aliens"?
    – The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?
    – If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care. (continued)



  71. 71

    How Mexico treats "Illegal Aliens" continued:
    – Illegal entry into Mexico is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of Mexico without due process and the endless court appearances that illegal aliens are afforded in the USA. (Note -Remember obama’s illegal alien aunt — a fugitive from deportation for eight years who is awaiting a second decision on her previously rejected asylum claim). - continued



  72. 72

    How Mexico treats "Illegal Aliens" continued:
    – Mexican Law enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities. – continued



  73. 73

    How Mexico treats "Illegal Aliens" continued:
    – Are you ready to show your papers? Mexico’s National Catalog of Foreigners tracks all outside tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens’ identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.
    - There’s been no public clamor for “comprehensive immigration reform” in Mexico, however, because pro-illegal alien speech by outsiders is prohibited. - continued



  74. 74

    How Mexico treats "Illegal Aliens" continued -
    - Under the Mexican constitution, political speech by foreigners is banned. Noncitizens cannot “in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.” In fact, a plethora of Mexican statutes enacted by its congress limit the participation of foreign nationals and companies in everything from investment, education, mining and civil aviation to electric energy and firearms. Foreigners have severely limited private property and employment rights (if any).

    It's not the illegals fault, it's the legal people who support them by paying them for the cheaper service they provide. The illegals are here to better their lives. The legal people are hiring them because they are greedy. They don't care if they themselves are doing something illegal. So get your shit straight people and stop fucking your own country. Don't give illegal people the key to your house, the hand of your kid or sign your checks "CASH" instead of writing the illegals name so that they don't trace it back to you. Once again, the problem is not them. It's you.

    P.s. If you have a brother, sister, cousin or neighbor that's illegal, do what you have to do and call immigration. Ist that what you tough people do?

    I would like to march in support of this bill..

    Google this "montebello HS Mexicoflag" Open your eyes, folks!

    If you could actually read Mario you would know this isn't a ridiculous bill. The border states have to start doing what PBO and the federal government is too weak to do…protect our country and take care of LEGAL citizens first.

    Re: hover me charlie – oh how my blood boiled when i read your comment about what happened to the native americans being an unfortunate travesty. it's as if you just shrugged off thousands of years of repression that the "white" man has caused people of different ethnicity or color just like that. to a certain extent i do believe that immigration should be monitored but what angers me is people, those white people to be exact that say this is our country when we know very well it's not like that. the first colonists of this land did much worse things thant what illegal immigrants are doing. at least if an illegal immigrant gets caught he gets put in prison or sent back. but your ancestors, i presume you are white not sure, came to this land, brought disease to this land, murdered tribes upon tribes of native americans, placed the survivors in miserable reservation camps and reaped the resources of this land. then they proceeded to become probably the first human traffickers by bringing slaves from africa. and you expect peope to forget that and move on just like that. perhaps what is going on is God's punishment for what your ancestors did so long ago. the sins of the father the son will pay. and you're right this is not a civil rights issue…this is a human rights issue. and just to be clear i am not racists i love people of every color black white brown whatever. but your comment just angered me so much.

    How dare illegals and their idiotic supporters stand up as if they are Americans and have an opinion in OUR country. We've enabled them with free schooling, our jobs, welfare for their anchor babies, public housing, and a myriad of other free benefits, COURTESY OF U.S. TAX PAYERS, because our government is too caught up in pandering for their votes and too short-sighted to see that immigration (legal and illegal) at its current rate will obliterate the U.S. as we know it. How many impoverished, uneducated immigrants can this country take in before it implodes? There's a reason that other first-world nations have no birthright citizenship and stick to their immigration quotas. Sorry folks, but the party's over and we're turning you out. Go back to your own country and fix the problems there and quit leaching off of American tax payers. SB 1070 will stick despite the audacity of illegals to protest. Try slithering into Mexico and see how they'd treat you! The race card is the last one you people have left to play, and it's REALLY old. Mexican isn't a race anyway, it's a nationality, and they've got Americans at the boiling point.



  81. 81

    Perez, you would last 5 minutes under anarchy. This law simply mirrors the pre-existing federal law and puts it on AZ' books to provide a mandate that removes the political cuffs placed on officers during routine stops.

    Educate yourself before you run your fucking mouth. If you thought will.i.am was bad for you, i'd love to see how you do in complete lawlessness. That's where we're headed if we continue to allow sovereignty to erode.

    Wake up!

    Why is this a racist bill again? Im just not getting it.
