Seth MacFarlane Compares Arizona's Anti-Immigration Law To Nazi Germany!

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitik

Seth MacFarlane is the latest celeb to protest Arizona's new controversial anti-immigration law.

The Family Guy creator has made some bold statements, comparing the law to Nazi Germany.

He says:

"It's too much. It's kind of a slap in the face, it's not the way to handle it…Nobody but the Nazis ever asked anybody for their papers. Walking down the street, a cop can come up to you and say 'May I see your papers?' — I think they should be required to ask that question in German if the law sticks around."

When asked why he thought the bill had been passed, MacFarlane said, "I don't know, people are getting crazier maybe…When I read that, I said, 'Wow, that's more shocking and egregious than anything we've ever done on the show, and it's a law.'"

He does have a point…

What do U think?

    I'm in Love with Seth



  2. 2

    He speaks the truth! This is one fucked up law!



  3. 3

    He's right! What a terrible law..



  4. 4

    If you could compare it to anything, albeit loosely, it would be more akin to the American government's forcible internment of approximately 110,000 Japanese Americans during WWII. Until we start rounding them up and killing them it can't be compared with the Holocaust.



  5. 5

    if that douchewad is against it, it must be a good thing.



  6. 6

    Do you people have any idea the burden illegal immigrants place on services like hospitals, police, schools, etc. that people who work legally have deduction taken from every paycheck to support?

    In LA 96% of the babies born in Country General are illegal immigrants who pay nothing. It's a big problem, and not fair to people who work and pay taxes to have to cover illegals' needs. They go from K thru high school and get free education when the parents pay zero taxes. Now, they want to be eligible for college scholarships in California. How can the people that work legally be expected to support those who pay no taxes? I don't care what race they are. It's not fair to anyone.

    40% of the work force in LA is illegal immigrants. It's crazy.

    I don't agree with the law, per se, but something has to be done, because these people are bleeding the taxpayers.



  7. 7

    Why is mexico allowed to have border control and immigration laws.



  8. 8

    I wonder how shocking it is to him how horrible crime has risen in the state. Does he live there? Is he affected by it? Probably not. Maybe all the "stars" should move there and live it first hand, then say how unfair it is.
    If it were YOUR backyard, I feel your opinion might be QUITE different.
    Amazing, America allows all kinds of people to immigrate, then they wanna BITCH AND MOAN when asked to show citizenship? Fuck that.
    Get your papers ready, folks and say THANK YOU!
    Or…you could always go back to where you obviously think it is so much better with no "racial profiling" (which is a garbage defense)..



  9. 9

    The very first thing illegals do the minute they step foot on american soil is break the law. Earn this country the way almost every immingrant used to by entering it legally, keeping the laws, and speaking english. South florida turned into cuba. California border towns turned into Mexico. Fuck that, this is america. Send them back in fucking cattle cars.



  10. 10

    and while i'm on a roll i think we should also cut off welfare to these woman who make a job out of having more babies so they can get more welfare. stop at one kid. After that we shouldn't care if they have to eat fucking dirt and live under bridges. if we're not fucking them to make those babies it shouldn't be our problem. get rid of immigrants and welfare and stop fighting stupid wars and maybe this country can get on track.



  11. 11

    this law mirrors the federal law morons……a cop got ambushed by illegal aliens with ak47s on friday…..so yea we are sick of the drug runners and the kidnappings in our state.



  12. 12

    Yuck perez bic solei makes your background look like a cake i want to throw up…go back to pink..or other shows u put back there…. oh wait i thought we were talking about shit that didnt matter



  13. 13

    anyways seth is a liberal loon..



  14. 14

    Read the law people before commenting on it. Nowhere in the law does it say you can walk up to anybody and ask for their papers.



  15. 15

    I do wonder…do you who are against this law think we should allow the Taliban, too? Does the car bomb in New York's time square even BOTHER YOU?? How about 9-11?? Is it racial profiling? Or GOOD COMMON SENSE? REMEMBER WHY this law has been enacted.
    We DON'T want you SNEAKING across any of our borders like rats. Do you want to be a rat?
    Do it right and you have no issues, right? Or is it too imposing to ask you to show you are a citizen? Have RESPECT.
    WE ARE PROTECTING THIS COUNTRY…..the one you so readily ran to from your own fucked up countries and you wanna BITCH ABOUT IT? Remember, you are being PROTECTED by our laws, ARMED FORCES and other services, too. RESPECT AMERICA!

    Unreal. Amazing…you come here, then try to change OUR LAW. One of our laws is NO MURDERING another is NO KIDNAPPING AND BEHEADING. Are you not willing to give a little of yourselves to protect what is given to you?? Really?

    DISGUSTING ATTITUDES! Just look at Arizona's crime rate and what is happening there. All of you who are against this law should move there, see for yourselves then cry me a river.



  16. 16

    I am an American citizen and just like these illegals, I have a desire to work hard.

    Since the illegals do not wish to follow the lawful path to citizen-ship, can I just not pay taxes.

    I mean, if the law isn't good enough for them, why should it be for me?

    See how this thinking leads to anarchy?

    And enough of this nonsense about "slavery was also the law at one time". Slavery and refusing to follow the lawful path to citizenship are hardly equals.

    Enough already.



  17. 17

    The illegal immigration cancer is slowly spreading until it will be to late to cure. If law are not enforced soon, our country, as we know it, will be taken over by criminals. It is a shame what our politicians, and intellectua'ls are doing to our country. Illegals are just that…..ILLEGAL. The must apply to anyone that is in the US. It is not racial profiling, it is the law, if a Mexican national is here on business, they carry their documents to prove they are here on business, ONLY IF THEY VIOLATE A LAW, they will not be stop if they are obeying the laws. The coalition for immigation rights is wrong, they are already in violation of the law. How many Hondurians , Salvadorians , Hondurans , Venezulians, and Nicarigains have been abused by the Mexican government. Go and protest in Mexico for their rights as human beings. YOU DON'T HAVE THE COURGE TO PROTEST IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY BECAUSE YOU KNOW WELL THAT YOU WILL BE THROW IN JAIL. This our laws and everyone has a right , as long as you are an American citizen visitor with proper documention.



  18. 18

    If illegal immigrants put as much effort into working on the problems and making positive changes in their own country as they are in trying to changing American policies then their countries would be places where they want to live….they are coming in illegally because they do not want to make the effort to make the changes in their countries. This debate is not about and should not be about Republicans or Democrats. It is about the rule of law as found in this great Republic. Our government is not a democracy. Study the difference and you will learn that the major media and many is current government are trying to break us down. When you lose your home and property, will you cry out to the Democrats or Republicans to fix the problem. At that point, it will be too late to cry wolf. America is the hope of freedom for every oppressed country in the world. Open you eyes



  19. 19

    People who jump to the conclusion that it's racist or anti-immigration can't read or make their own opinions. They just glance a quick headline or read an op-ed piece and decide they agree with it before understand what it is they're even reading.

    The United States is a nation of immigrants; legal immigrants. The founding fathers did not intend for our country to be a place where everybody can drop into unchecked. The rules in place apply to everyone from every country. The whole 'brown skin' argument is just the usual whining red herring to divert attention from the real matter at hand. Illegal immigration, and amnesty cities that promote it, offer all of the benefits to aliens while they live off the grid. You simply cannot run a society like this, and anyone who believes otherwise needs to wake up. Stop with the emotional appeals and start using some logic.



  20. 20

    I like the idea of profiling! I like to be known as an honest citizen of America. I want to maintain my integrity and honor. If I go to Canada, Europe, or Central America,I provide my passport. It I break the law, then I must suffer the consequences. If someone crosses our borders illegally, then they must suffer the consequences and take responsibility for their actions. It is the risk they take for crossing illegally. My preference is for illegals aliens to apply for proper credentials, visas, passports, or green cards that enable them to come here legally. Anyone who supports people crossing our borders is aiding and abetting their crime and they should also be punished. If you use your position of influence to circumvent the letter of the law, you should pay the penalty. No exceptions! We must be a nation of laws and not feelings. The law will preserve us, but our emotions and feelings will destroy us.



  21. 21

    The state of California is going bankrupt BECAUSE of all the ILLEGALS !! You are right when you say America is the land of the FREE ….You expect to have everything handed to you for FREE !!

    The US welcomes people who come here LEGALLY !!
    We don't need reform. Just enforce the existing federal laws. They're more strict than the Arizona law. If I go to any other country in the world I need papers and they can search me any time they want. The government spends more time and money protecting criminals than our legal citizens and border guards. What about the people that died protecting and living on our borders? Where's the president now? Bet he won't be going to Arizona to help protect US citizens.



  22. 22

    Re: whateverthen – I was going to say the same thing! You have to break the law in order for anyone to ask for papers! I am tired of things being taken away from my AMERICAN KIDS! Things need to change!!!!!



  23. 23

    I'm an American living in Barcelona, Spain and the police here have the right to do the exact same thing. They can stop anyone in the street for any reason and ask them for identification and working/residency papers. Are Spanish politicians and the Spanish government Nazis too???



  24. 24

    We kind of need illegal immigrants to make a lot of businesses work. Do you think some self righteous, obese, entitled American kid is going to pick lettuce and strawberries for 5 dollars a bushel? I don't fucking think so. Going to mow my lawn? Yeah fucking right. Going to collect my garbage? Didn't think so. Wash my car? Scrubs dishes for 4 bucks an hour? Nope.

    People like to think of things in such black and white terms. It's pretty laughable. Cheap labor provided by immigrants is what made this country. Since, like, forever.

    Of course, I'm sure all of you are native american indians.



  25. 25

    Obama is the one that is a closest to being NAZI if Seth wants to bring that up! Can you say communism and dictator! It's well on it's way! All hidden and looking like the Mesiah for now. But he has BIG plans ahead for ya'll that lvoe him and I dont think your gonna like them once you WAKE up and see what's REALLY going on and his agenda:) Just wait. You will see eventually:)



  26. 26

    People in Hazelton PA have been trying to do this for a long time. It's nice to see someone else pick up the torch.



  27. 27

    Re: Heisenberg #24 YOU ASKED HOW MANY OF US ARE NATIVE AMERICANS? SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T INFORCE THE LAW? IF THEY WOULD HAVE STOPPED EVERYONE AT THE BORDER THEY'D STILL OWN AMERICA. IT'S A GOOD LESSON TO LEARN ISN'T IT?



  28. 28

    he's right. It is like the Nazis. I think there are people in Arizona who are scared because of the drug wars in Mexico and some of that has spread to Arizona. I also think the high unemployment and people losing there homes, etc. has created a lot more fear. BUT I also think you have a lot of crazy Right Wing extreme Right wack jobs in Arizona and in other places who arejust plain racists. Period.



  29. 29

    1."Show me your paper" (AKA driver's license) does not equal Nazi Germany. Jews were forced to wear the Star of David, this bill does not required people to wear physical items on their body to indicate their immigration status or race. You just need to carry your ID around, which by the way you should do anyway, and be able to prove that you are in the country legally. I am Asian and I will not be offended if I am asked to show my ID. I am a regular college student and like any college students I make mistakes when I am drunk. I've been stopped by the cops twice (and was even arrested once) in my life and both encounters involve alcohol and my rude behavior. I take complete responsibly for my actions. If you are legal, you should have NO PROBLEM PROVING your citizenship. I can speak English fluently and I can give the police my citizenship number in less than 30 seconds with one phone call if I am in jail.



  30. 30

    Again, STOP comparing this law to Nazi Germany. As an International Studies major, I have taken courses just on 20th century Genocides. Holocaust is still one of the worst events to occur in the history of the world, but there genocides and massacres happening NOW. A major problem with the genocides and mass massacres that are taking place now is the lack of actions by the UN and other countries. This is because we (the public) KEEP referring everything to genocides and KEEP comparing everything to Nazi Germany. We are diluting the meaning of these words thus preventing real actions for the real genocides, massacres, and other serious crimes against humanity. STOP CRYING WOLF, every time you encounter something you that goes against with your opinions.



  31. 31

    I wish Elie Wiesel would give some insight into this madness.



  32. 32

    Lets not draw comparisons between asking someone for their papers and associating it with one of the biggest atrocities in human society. Over 9,000,000 jews were killed and I am disgusted that he would draw comparisons to such a travesty. All it is is a scare tactic to get people to pay attention to what he is saying and convince those that are dumb enough that there are reasonable similarities. By doing so, just having an association with the word Nazi people are going to flip out and think that we are being like them. I am so sick of these absolutely idiotic celebrities that believe that just because they have a stage they need to get up and say something on it as if being famous gives them brains. Stfu

  40. 40

    Maybe - it's time for those feeling threatened/oppressed by the new Arizona law to migrate out of the U.S.A. to a friendlier humaniterian country - like Mexico, Columbia, Brazil etc., etc.



  41. 41

    Its true.



  42. 42

    *points upward to the obviously crazy continuous commenter … you all know who he is, and asks … * Does anyone know if Perez has an "ignore" button on this site?



  43. 43

    Re: Bariah – Celebrities pretend that the issues matter to them because it gives them a larger fan base. Somehow I don't think the illegals are keeping up with Family Guy in the Neison ratings. Next up, Paris Hilton puts her 2 cents worth in …



  44. 44

    i am so totaly for this law.. there is so many illegal immigrants. we need to get rid of them and stop immigrants from coming into the country. I am Canadian (and I hate mario) and i will push to have this law passed in Canada also. we want our coutry back. the immigrants come into our country and try to turn it into their country. if you do not want to live by our laws and our way of life then stay in your own country.. we are sick of seeing you here.. go away



  45. 45

    I'm just saying all these illegal immigrants are doing all the shorty jobs we feel so entitled not to do…I'm pretty damn sure you wouldn't want your dad or mom to be the guy who mows the lawn or be a maid/babysitter. I think there is a serious problem because they don't pay for shit but we can figure out a way to get them to pay their fair share…



  46. 46

    They are called illegal aliens because they are here illegally. They gave up all rights to be here when they entered illegally. Round them all up and ship them all back.



  47. 47

    I live in France, where it is legal and common practice to ask people for their "papers." In fact, it is illegal to leave your home without papers. Of course, this law is enforced in very racists ways. I am not a citizen, but have never been asked for my papers (except when crossing the border). But I'm white, try being non-white in France, and it's another story.



  48. 48

    Re: ~Cornholio~ – aactually he wasnt putting his 2 cents in, he was asked how he felt about the bill



  49. 49

    The law that has been written does foster racism. I say that, because can a person be expected to look at another person and tell if they are illegal or not ? You can't. It is a law that creates a system of labeling, which is essentially what the Nazi's had done. Also, remember, there are a lot of white skinned people who are living in this country illegally. Will they be carded based on the color of their skin. People would go mad. I think the law as it stands, is wrong. I think in order to curb this mess at the borders we need to go after "ALL" the businesses and companies, households, etc, that do hire illegal immigrants and fine the heck out of them. The thing is, many of these businesses and companies, households, etc. are shelling out big money to the policy makers of these laws. The police makers would thus loose money from their pockets, in the end.



  50. 50

    "Walking down the street, a cop can come up to you and say 'May I see your papers?' — I think they should be required to ask that question in German if the law sticks around."

    The law does not say that. I wish celebrities would read before they spoke.



  51. 51

    Re: archimmes – How? The murder of millions of innocent people, including children, and having to ask people for proof of citizenship?

    How are these even close? It's one of the more ridiculous comparisons.



  52. 52

    no. the fact that he said this is appauling. YES the law is offensive, no i do not by any means agree with what they are doing in Arizona…but the Holocaust? does he realize WHAT HAPPENED in the Holocaust. I recieved my degree in History with a concentration in the Holocaust from Fordham. The HOLOCAUST was the complete, tourcherous, murder, and ethnic cleansing. Yes, at first Jews had to show their paperwork…but the paperwork was not just an ID. They recieved it after having to go physical exams and complete background checks of family history and if TWO GRANDPARENTS were Jewish… you would be forced into ghettos. (which is where the term comes from..and it was a hell of a lot worse then any 'ghetto' in the US)
    continued….



  53. 53

    Re: mamakangaroo – If you have your papers, what does it matter?



  54. 54

    Everyone of their rights were taken away. If they refused to show paperwork or so much as snuck a piece of bread into the ghetto they would be forced to dig their own grave and shot. Not to mention the fact that they took over most of Europe killing anyone who wasn't to their standards. They wanted to wipe out the entire race from the PLANET. NOT stop illegal immigrents from coming over the fucking border. Want to compare something in modern society to the Holocaust? Try Darfur. Not an Arizona immigration law. Genocide is a bit different, and i'm pretty fucking sure no one is trying to wipe out any minority. and I also agree with Human Sushi Platter. If america has done anything with any bit of similarity its what they did to the Japanese. Which for some reason no one ever made that much of a fuss about.



  55. 55

    Re: hedgehoginheat

    exactly. i love you and everything you just said.

    people are complete morons.



  56. 56

    Those that are "for" the law…Don't you guys see how this law can be abused so easily? I'm hispanic. Some asshole cop who feels like being a dick can ask for my papers just to fuck with me even though I was born here. Think about it.



  57. 57

    Re: peckerwood – I agree with you 100%. Someone has to do something. I'm a single mom with three teenagers, and I make too much money for any assistance and I make less than $30,000 a year. And to hear that these people get everything free, is beyond comprehension. We used to welcome "… your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…" but now we have our own tired and poor, and we should be thinking of them first and foremost.



  58. 58

    Note also the fact that the immigration laws target ILLEGAL IMMIGRENTS! They dont care if you fucking stay here, they just want you to do it legally aka become a citizen or get a visa.

    and i dont wanna hear any bullshit like 'but they can't read or write and english' I'm pretty sure most things are in Spanish too.

    WE PAY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS A YEAR IN TAXES TO LIVE HERE AND PROTECT OUR COUNTRY AND PAY FOR SCHOOLS & HOSPITALS… I'M NOT PAYING FOR YOUR BROKE ASS BECAUSE 'Oh I want to live in america..and work in america..and send my kids to american schools…but NO I'm not american, i'm (insert nationality here)"

    and if we want you to become citizens and pay tax money… no one is targeting you. we ARE treating you as equals.. because we are doing the exact same fucking thing. We were alllll immigrents at some point. so this is bullshit.



  59. 59

    He doesn't speak the truth. AZ has unique problems with border crossings, murders, potential terrorists, drug smuggling. They *had* to get tough. And besides, these aren't the immigrants of our grandparents generation. Our grandparents had *no* free handouts.



  60. 60

    Re: matilda1 – "Walking down the street, a cop can come up to you and say 'May I see your papers?' — I think they should be required to ask that question in German if the law sticks around."

    The law does not say that. I wish celebrities would read before they spoke.

    ——
    As a tiny white girl.. actually I am GERMAN & IRISH so mad white. I live in New York City. Last week a cop came up to me and randomly asked for my ID. didn't bother me in the least bit. people need to stop bitching. We are not treating anyone differently they just want special treatment…not to be treated as equals



  61. 61

    Who cares what this plagiarist has to say? I'd like to hear Matt Groening's view.



  62. 62

    Peckerwood, Sid_vicious, whattheFUCK and hedgehoginheat…you are my peeps! Has anyone read the MSN article about how hard it is to gain citizenship in Mexico? And yet, we are expected to welcome these resource suckers with open arms!
    I have no problem if someone wants to adopt our culture learn our language, (which I believe is English!) and take the oath that my Italian Grandparents did when they came over from Italy in order to become an American citizen, but I deplore those who sneak over here and drop babies so they can suck money and other resources out of our country, so they can, more than likely, send it over there and then bankrupt our economy.
    If we allow them to just come over and do nothing, than we will also have to allow taliban and all of the other creepy countries that want to harm our country in and then you will see all hell break loose.
    One more point. Why is it that Spanish is the only language that we are expected to accomodate? and are they interested in learning other languages like Farsi and French so they can comunicate others from countries other than Mexico? NOPE, they are so self centered, they feel they don't need to speak others languages, but rather, everyone has to accomodate them. They are hipocrites! Are they more special than any other race? Then why are they allowed to do this?!? We all need to hold a rally ourselves!



  63. 63

    Too bad this moron hasnt read the law before he commented on it. Law enforcement has to have a reasonable cause to be in contact with someone. 99% percent of the time the officer is going to ask for id in the situations. If the person can't produce valid id this law enables theofficer to take it one step further to investigate residency. The federal government has failed to protect the borders the past 15 years and the people, including the Hispanic Americans are paying the price.
    McFrlane should buy a house on the border and see how safe he feels. Maybe McFarlane ought to worry about the millions of legal residents who cant find any work because the illegal immigrant lowballs the wage market. It's not just about picking vegetables Americans have lost thousands of jobs in factories and construction



  64. 64

    When my mom was working in her 20's, she was issued a student visa to work in France. She was required to take it wherever she went, so its not a Nazi thing. I'm definitely not a fan of the racial profiling that the Arizona bill entails, but I think it makes sense that ANY legal immigrant from ANY other country should carry around their papers.



  65. 65

    I am a white woman from Italian heritage…my grandparents immigrated here and got no free rides and they learned to speak english! They felt it was an honor to adopt the American way of life! I spent 20 years cleaning houses, they jobs that supposedly white people wont do! I take offense!



  66. 66

    Re: Kisses – You are right the companys that hire illegals need to be fined and fined to the tee then the illegals will go back or do it right thing



  67. 67

    gee, I read the law, I must have missed the part of interrment of japanese AMERICAN citizens -hsp. and as for Seth MF, I missed the gas chamber part , the death camps, the mass graves and making lamps out of the skins of the illegals. I will have to read it again. This law is almost WORD FOR WORD LAWS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GOV'T HAS PASSED OVER DECADES AND HASN'T DONE A DAMN THING ABOUT. A POLICE OFFICE WAS SHOT WITH AN OUZI OVER THE WEEKEND. He has his glock. Luckily he will survive. It was an ambush over drugs and gangs.



  68. 68

    They insisted on seeing our papers proving residency in order to attend Town Hall meetings with Democrat politicians.

    You remember when Joe the Plumber questioned Obama, what's the first thing that happened to him? Democrat Ohio state officials started going through his papers to find any dirt on him that they could, and then published it.

    You remember James O'Keefe, the guy who dressed up like a pimp and got ACORN busted? When he went into Mary Landrieu's office, they said he was allegedly tampering with her phone. The first thing they did when they arrested him was demand to see his papers. And then they did the same thing that they did with Joe the Plumber, they published every derogatory thing they found, privacy and Constitutional protections be damned.

    When the gate crashing couple who got into the White House without showing papers the woman responsible for letting them in without checking was fired.

    Maybe Seth is correct when he insists only Nazis demand to see a person’s papers.



  69. 69

    As a Canadian I was told that when I went to Florida that I had to carry id on me at all times to prove who I was if asked. I thought that was pretty much ridiculous. So I see no problem in Americans or any other "tourist" being asked for THEIR papers. What - you are saying that an immigrant who enters illegally should have more rights than a Canadian citizen? Please People.



  70. 70

    As a LEGAL immigrant from Ireland i have no problem with this law. Its the law in most countries around the world to be able to show your papers if you are stopped by the cops for any reason. Celebrities obviously do not know how to read and need to stop talking BS that isn't even true. Anyone who comes to america for a better life needs to respect the laws of the country or go back to where they come from. Oh and i'd love to know why Spanish is the only language they have EVERYTHING in and id accomodated?!! I'm from Ireland, like a lot of immigrants that went to America for the American dream, why didnt my school books also come in Irish, and the billboards, driving license exams, as well as all the signs in the immigration office?

    Is he related to Peter Brady??? They look like brothers….



  72. 72

    Hes speaking the truth! This law needs to be stopped! Hes totally right!!!



  73. 73

    Another celebrity who doesn't understand what they are talking about.



  74. 74

    Sorry but Seth has no clue. Obviously he has not been to Mexico and seen their immigration laws.



  75. 75

    How insulting to all those who died in the death camps and their families….having illegals provide documentation is good, not bad! We must save our country before it's too late. What a moron.



  76. 76

    Oh Seth….. SHUT UP! SIT DOWN!

    America was founded and know world wide for this belief, the inscription on the statue of liberty:
    -
    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
    -
    TO THIS ARIZONA SAYS FUCK OFF AND IF YOU LOOK MEXICAN SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS!! HAIL BREWER!!
    -
    IS THIS REALLY AMERICA'S BEST ?
    -
    TO ALL THE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT 3 VIOLENT CRIMES… 11 MILLION PEOPLE LIVING IN AMERICA ARE ILLEGAL YOU DO THE MATH!
    -
    THERE IS A BIG DEFERENCE BETWEEN SHOWING A PASSPORT AT YOUR BORDER AND SHOWING YOUR PAPER WITHIN THE BORDERS TO A STATE POLICE FORCE!
    -
    RACIAL PROFILING IS WRONG!
    -
    THIS DOES NOT SEEM TO ME TO BE THE RIGHT WAY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM!
    -
    AZ HARASSING HISPANIC LOOKING PEOPLE DOESN'T DO ANYTHING TO CLOSE THE HOLES IN YOUR BORDERS.
    -
    YOU MAY CATCH SOME AND KICK THEM OUT THEY WILL BE BACK IF ITS NOT ALL FIXED IN A COMPREHENSIVE WAY!



  78. 78

    maybe if all these celebrity speaking out against the Arizona law should see how many illegals have taken over certain areas. if they knew or had to live by them, maybe they would see it the other way. oh, wait…maybe they just dont want their maids and lawnscapers deported.
    i have no problem with the law and hope TX gets on board too!!!
    if you come to America, come legally and then act like Americans. We have flushing toilets…we don't throw tp on the ground next to the toilet. GROSS!



  79. 79

    The people who learned to fly our planes and kill thousands on 9/11 had proper documentation. Just saying. I agree with Seth. What's next when it becomes a burden to have to ask for papers? A yellow badge that everyone can see?



  80. 80

    landscapers. i meant. lol



  81. 81

    oh yes, did we forget about the gangs???? MS13, M18, and other gangs that are made up of ILLEGAL ALIENS THAT KILL, BRING IN DRUGS, ROB, COMMIT CRIMES, INTIMIDATE OTHERS. PEOPLE LIVING IN FEAR WHEN THEY INFILTRATE THEIR TOWNS. MY TOWN HAS SOME MS 13. Some apartment buildings were knocked down, the people there, some probably illegals, were complaining about rats, mice, etc. They were being charged outrageous rates, $1400 for a one bedroom, so many people crowded in. (they most likely were illegals, because would YOU like in a place like that when you can get a nice place for a few hundred dollars LESS?). Of course, the aclu jumped in when the town knocked them down, said the town was discriminating against hispanics????? aclu LOST because we had hispanics living in other places. We had a gang member found dead on our bike path and one shot 2 years ago by our train station. I used to be able, as a teen wait by myself to take a train into the city. I can't even think I will let my kids do it. UNSAFE. I live in the north. I FEEL DEEPLY FOR THE CITIZENS, GET IT, THE CITIZENS, WHETHER HISPANIC, BLACK OR WHITE OR WHATEVER, OF ARIZONA. When your hometown changes in a matter of a few decades because the FEDERAL GOV'T WILL NOT ENFORCE THEIR OWN LAWS. ILLEGAL GET IT?



  82. 82

    I agree with this law completley. My mom immigrated here LEGALLY from Germany. She not only LEGALY became a citizen she learned fluent English. No one printed everything in German just for her or hired translators so she wouldn't have to learn the language. I think it's discriminatory that all languages aren't reprinted on every package, sign, etc or translators hired. I am so tired of the more my husband and I make the more is taken out so we can pay for these people that refuse to become citizens. Why would they become legal they make more money than alot of Americans if you look at what Americans get paid AFTER taxes. And as for they do the jobs Americans won't do, that's bull. I know alot of legal americans who have been out of work over year looking for ANY job. ANd as for the low pay of illegals again look at what people get paid AFTER they pay for all these illegals or the fact that many illegals get govt assistance and therefore have no bills.



  83. 83

    and these people that are ILLEGAL, not PAYING TAXES, etc. but are not in gangs. WHAT KIND OF LIFE DO THEY HAVE? Alot of them live in small rooms, one room to a family being charged, at least in ny, $800 A ROOM!!!!! Yes, sleazy landlords, but what kind of life is this? Yes, first they are illegal. Go back home and lets find a way to immigrant legally, learn the language and earn money LEGALLY. All the 'celebrities, INCLUDING YOU MARIO, should sponser at least ONE FAMILY TO BECOME A LEGAL RESIDENT. You all have big mouths. REAL Big mouths. Equating it to nazi germany. You are all morons. Our residents are the ones being shot. They are the ones with the machine guns. Instead of the big STUPID words, DO SOMETHING. YOU ALL COMPLAIN THE TEA PARTY JUST IS ABOUT WORDS, AND THERE YOU ARE, MOUTHING OFF. Step up and offer financial support for a family. OOOH, money, you guys don't like doing that do you?



  84. 84

    WHY NOT GO AFTER THE COMPANY'S AND BUSINESS THAT HIRE THEM…THATS WHERE THEY SHOULD START. NOT STOPPING PEOPLE ON THE STREET BECAUSE THEY LOOK MEXICAN OR LATINO…. AND FOR LOT OF YOU THAT DON'T THINK I WONT LEAD TO THEM DOING THE SAME THING TO YOU SOMEDAY..WAKE UP.



  85. 85

    Perhaps Seth has a learning disability, or just isn't bright enough to read. Because if he could read, and had read the law he would know that what he is saying about the law is just an outright lie. I suppose maybe he does know how to read but he is simply a dishonest liar. Read the law before making stupid judgements about what it does or does not allow. If you have read it, say so, that way we will know that you simply are a dishonest liar.



  86. 86

    it is NOT an anti-immigration law, or anything NAZI it is an anti-iILLEGALS law anti- free government benefits for people who don't pay taxes etc…. if Mexicans had blond hair and blue eyes there would still be problems with them if they are going to come ILEGALLY and getting welfare money or going to public hospitals for free etc it is ABUSE and it is affecting American's economy, but of course they use the race card to justify they are doing something WRONG, I wonder what would be the excuse if they were white???



  87. 87

    STOP YOUR BULLSHIT RACE BAITING!

    GEORGE BUSH AND THE REPUBLICANS DESTROYED AMERICAS ECONOMY NOT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. NO NATION ON EARTH CAN GIVE TAX CUTS WHILE FIGHTING TWO WARS LIKE BUSH DID AND THE REPUBLICANS DID REAGAN DEREGULATED THE BANKS AND FINANCIAL MARKETS, CLINTON DEREGULATED THEM FURTHER AND THEN BUSH TOOK IT ALL THE WAY.. YOU NOW SEE THE RESULTS OF THOSE ACTIONS!
    -
    MEXICO'S PROBLEMS ARE THE DIRECT RESULT OF AMERICAS WAR ON DRUGS AND WANT FOR DRUGS.. THE GUNS KILLING MEXICAN COPS AND CIVILIANS COME FROM THE USA… THE DRUGS GO TO THE USA!
    -
    ARIZONA'S GOVERNOR AND REPUBLICAN MAJORITY WERE LAGGING 20-25% BEHIND THE DEMOCRATS IN THE POLLS… THEY PAST THIS LAW AND NOW THEY ARE LEADING BY UP TO 40% IN SOME… IT IS A DIRTY ACT OF POLITICS NOTHING MORE!

    Re: Aussieone – Speak the truth, brother…This law is not going to deter anyone from entering Arizona, illegally.

    Re: LizardKinG – Speak the truth, Brother!



  91. 91

    I am an American who lives in Germany. Newsflash - in Germany it is still REQUIRED to have identification on you at all times. In fact, if you are carded at a club and don't have ID you will be fined. This happened to me recently. 30 EURO fine aint cheap. But I TOTALLY get it. This way police can apprehend illegals - criminals etc. before they ever get the chance to commit a crime. DUH!



  92. 92

    Also, I am of Persian background ie modern day Iraq. I have NO problem with racial profiling. Why? Because I AM NOT A THREAT. And I can face facts: 100 percent of the 9/11 attackers were of Arab/Muslim background. Let's use common sense and stop wasting my tax dollars by trying to screen everyone just to be politically correct. Maybe if there was more racial profiling us Arabs would get so fed up with the extra hassle that we would direct a bit more anger & frustration at those Arabs causing the problem. PROFILE AWAY!



  93. 93

    Re: justtfax – #67 That's okay, I doubt if they teach this in American Lilly White history. It isn't *THIS* immigration law. It is from 1942.

    Actually I knew about it, but not a whole lot, so looked it up myself and for you. Americans of Japanese ancestry were placed in internment camps, mostly on the West Coast, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Americans! The order was Executive Order 9066, authorized by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on February 19, 1942. You can find out a lot about it if you look it up. It was pretty awful because those people were LEGAL AMERICANS herded by law by their own country like animals into camps. That's scary.
    —-
    I still say illegal is illegal though. I'm an American born to American parents but if I commit an illegal act I'm going to pay for it, so why not them? But I digress. Sorry. That's the history lesson for the day, it's an ugly little chapter that America sweeps under the rug.



  94. 94

    And lastly, I am a LEGAL Immigrant. I HATE that my family went to all the trouble of learning English, taking Exams, filling out forms etc. to come to the US legally when we could actually have a BETTER deal if we were illegals. It's FUCKING UNFAIR TO LEGAL IMMIGRATION. Umm, Perez are you an illegal??? Then why won't you get your ass on the right side!!



  95. 95

    Re: justtfax – and just for the record. We're on the same page, my friend. Actually, I would be proud to be stopped to prove my citizenship to America in any way I could, and at the end of it, I'd sing the Star Spangled Banner with tears in my eyes … well tears in everyone else's eyes too if you've ever heard me sing, but you get the point. God Bless America.



  96. 96

    Yo know instead of just rounding them up like cattle and tossing tem out, maybe it would be a good idea for the government to change its way it approches illegals, maybe an immigration reform? *sarcastic* sighhhh…

    There is no gurantee this legislation is not going to prevent them from returning again and again, however it does simply gurantee we spend even more of our resources while creating little durable change.

    I understand his point but when he says that "nobody but the Nazis ever asked anybody for their papers", he's wrong.
    I'm French and in France it's 100% legal for a cop to ask to see somebody's papers, and we are told we should always have an ID with us as not carrying one can get us in trouble.
    Of course, I've never been asked for my papers myself as I'm white and female, and I fall outside of what an illegal immigrant is "supposed" to look like. But arabic and black people are really used to having their papers checked randomly, which is pretty screwed up as a lot of them were born in France and it's pure discrimination on the police's part.
