Cypress Hill Cancels AZ Concert In Protest Of Immigration Law

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikInspiration

Wow! We really have to applaud them!

Cypress Hill has cancelled an upcoming concert in Arizona as way to protest the RIDICULOUS and unconstitutional immigration law that allows officials to detain anyone they think might be an illegal immigrant.

The group says in a statement:

"This decision was made in an effort to show support and solidarity with those, undocumented and otherwise, being directly affected by this unconstitutional law. Cypress Hill recognizes those living in the struggle for their basic civil rights."

Amazing! We're glad they chose to take a stand!

Thoughts??

    Im an american and have paid taxes every year since I was 18.
    Right now I have an abnormal skin patch on my forehead that is changing colors, and I cant afford to go see a doctor to get it tested.
    I cant afford to buy health insurance, so I just cross my fingers that its not cancer.

    but these fucking mexicans come over the boarder and get free health care, free section 8 housing, never pay taxes, and do nothing but spread their legs and crank out babies and talk about how America sucks and mexico is so great.
    meanwhile I cant afford to see a doctor.

    nice gang symbols there, fucking retards.

    The majority of Cypress Hill must be Illegal Aliens, so the LAW WORKS !!!



  3. 3

    Mexicans can go fuck themselves. its a country full of lazy retards who dont want to work, thats why theyre so poor.

    Anyone who is honest and will actually work will want to get into America LEGALLY!
    why should I pay for you to break the law?

    go fuck yourselves mexicans. and turn down that god awful music too, retards.



  4. 4

    "This decision was made because most of the road crew are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!"



  5. 5

    Everyone against this law is forgetting the fact that this is already a FEDERAL law - but the federal government refuses to enforce it! And BTW, most Americans support this necessary step of enforcement. So why don't you and all these other celebs find out what this law is really all about before bashing it and calling it unconstiutional, etc…



  6. 6

    Arizona has figured out a way to get rid of illegal immigrants AND Cypress Hill . . . I'm ready to move to Tucson!



  7. 7

    who gives a shit about cypress hill anymore? One hit wonders. Do you really think them "taking a stand" is really going to do much?



  8. 8

    This is so stupid. It's not racism if you're here illegally. Get documented or get the fuck outta my country. I wish more states bordering Mexico would get on board with this.

    P.S. Cypress Hill sucks ass.



  9. 9

    Why not do the concert and dedicate to the people that have been killed by the mexican drug lords crossing the border and killing ranchers who have owned their land for over a hundred years? Stupid dumb fucks! If you don't live through the hell there for AMERICAN citizens, shut your fuckin mouth!



  10. 10

    as if anyone really cares about their music.



  11. 11

    Who cares? They've been nobodies since the mid 90s. And the law isn't unconstitutional. There's nothing in the constitution that says the police can't check your identification if they have a reason to suspect you're breaking the law.



  12. 12

    I hope they know there are also "white" illegals and they question and detain them too!! A few years back there was an illegal Irish shoplifting thief that citizens hipocritely fought to stop her deportation.



  13. 13

    If you're not a legal citzen of this country then you have NO rights of any kind under our Constitution! If you have a problem with that, you can complain from the other side of the fence.



  14. 14

    Am I supposed to be disappointed by this? Why don't they show their support instead by having the concert in Mexico?



  15. 15

    Who goes to a Cypress Hill concert?



  16. 16

    I fully support Arizona's law. If people are here illegaly then they should be detained and deported. They are just a huge financial burden on the hard working tax paying Americans.



  17. 17

    TEAM ARIZONA



  18. 18

    God Perez you and all these other celebrities speaking out about how racist Arizona is all need to just shut the fuck up. You have no idea at all what you are talking about. Unless you live in Arizona (like I do), you dont need to be adding in your two cents. You just come off as looking like an idiot.



  19. 19

    When are people going to educate themselves and realize these laws have been on the books for a VERY long time. Just at a federal level. The only actual new law is that the state of AZ can charge illegals upto a $1000 penelty. This money goes towards their housing, medical, and food while they are in protective custody. Arizona is fucking tired of having to pay to send these illegals back to where they came from.



  20. 20

    Re: Sexsai – Maybe what you have on your head is herpes from sucking the Mexicans dicks! LOLZ

    A solution to your problem - why don't you sneak into Mexico and get free housing, health care, etc.

  21. KateT says – reply to this


    21

    Perez, I love you, but have you read the Constitution?! The feds have failed Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico. States have the right and the power to take matters into their own hands. It's called state sovereignty.



  22. 22

    Cypress Hill canceled their concert? Oh my God…STOP THE PRESSES!…oh wait, who care? Are they even relevant?

    I applaud Arizona…they may not have the correct path to the right answer…but at least they started the ball rolling…started a conversation around the country that was sorely needed.

    I want to hear alternative solutions to all the bleeding heart dickheads condemming Arizona, yet have not a single suggestion to help solve the huge issue that state, and many others, face.



  23. 23

    oh no, gonna miss out on cypress hill oh what will I ever do with myself….whatever! lol *Perez, you really need to get your facts straight, I know its a blog and you put your opinions, but you dont live with it, and you dont know the facts…when you do, then have an opinion*



  24. 24

    Good! Let them stay out of AZ. We don't need any more haters spilling their ignorance about the law. I'd really like to know which one of them has even read it.



  25. 25

    "Cypress Hill recognizes those living in the struggle for their basic civil rights."

    Umm….yeah, if you're an illegal immigrant, you dont have the basic civil rights that evey AMERICAN has. Idiot.



  26. 26

    maybe you want to actually read the law because you can only be detained for probable cause. police arent going to be in the street hunting down illegals.



  27. 27

    Good on them! :)

    FREE MARC EMERY!



  28. 28

    sexsai.. the 1950's called.. they want thier idiot back.. its so sad to see racism now in the year 2010..before opening your mouth that is full of nonsense check facts.. show me statistics.. have you ever walked into a welfare office? illegals are too scared to show up for help. fearing deportation. i am a mexican american my parents were ilegal.. how can they come here legally when there is no help.. back then all you had to have to be a citizen was to have lived in the country for 5 years. now it takes double that..i thought we were a country of freedom and opportunity..but we waste our tax money on silly rasist laws? come on.. be real.. buy yourself healthcare like the rest of us.. and quit blaming the illegals for every single problem.. If you actually knew your stuff youd see that the majority of the people having kids and living off of welfare are citizens.. race isnt the issue on that one.. i applaud them for taking a stand against this law..



  29. 29

    Re: Sexsai – I do support Arizona, but you jsut sound like an idot. If you want to support America nad Arizona, don't sound like a complete moron doing so.



  30. 30

    CUDOS TO CYPRESS HILL AS A GROUP!! BUT TOO BAD THEY STILL ROLL WITH HERPIES INFESTED SEN DOG!!



  31. 31

    I am confused as to what is unconstitutional about the law? It is not creating a law, it is an enforcement law. That is, it is just a call to enforce the laws regarding illegal immigrants that are already on the book. Also, they can not just detain "anyone", it has to be after said person has already been stopped for some other reason (ex. speeding) then and only then if they are acting shifty the officer has the right to ask about thier immigration status just as they have the right to ask if a person has had anything to drink. But mostly I am confused by the statement released by Cypress Hill - Since when do basic civil rights include the right to break the law and being free of the consequences?

  32. MP says – reply to this


    32

    Umm, what part of "illegal" do these guys not understand? Illegal immigrants are committing a crime just by living here, the people of America are broke, we cannot subsidize their education, health care, welfare and incarceration. Also, as a sovereign nation, we have the right to protect our borders and know who is living within them. Perhaps if the federal government did its job Arizona wouldn't have had to resort to this. They are addressing an out of control situation and 70% of Arizona residents support the new measure. And it's NOT unconstitutional. It was carefully worded to avoid that. People should read up on it before spouting off unintelligently.



  33. 33

    the Arizona Law is Constitutional. Arizona is the only state with the BALLS to uphold the Constitution. GO ARIZONA!
    If people don't like it they have an option- MOVE, move far, far, away- go find some other country that will let them live there! I bet they won't be getting all the free shit that our illegals get- healthcare, housing, food, education, etc.
    I DARE someone to walk across the Mexican border illegally and try and get any sort of benefits, it won't happen, you'll get locked up and sent back. Illegals should go back to where they came or apply for citizenship the LEGAL way. I have no problem with immigrants- I have a HUGE problem with ILLEGAL aliens!

    Re: Sexsai – haha stfu ; you just mad just you cant pay your shit , get your head out your fucking ass ! Most immigrants come here to work and make a good life for their kids . & on top of that , none of us are fucking Americans … the only damn Americans are the Native Americans. And get your shit straight before you go off saying immigrants get shit for free. They pay for their fucking shit too . You just mad cause they got more money than your broke ass . And I wont be talking shit saying " theyre so poor " cause you just said you cant afford to see a doctor ignorant bitch.



  35. 35

    Perez,

    You haven't even been to Arizona to see all the garbage that is going on. I am a second generation native of AZ, and I am so happy our governor passed this law. Not to mention, its mirrored after a Federal Law that is already in place. It has nothing to do with race. What part of illegal isn't illegal anymore? Do your homework.



  36. 36

    Re: jokerface That makes no sense. Since Sexsai is against illegals. Go back to your cave you moron.



  37. 37

    shit- US citizens are REQUIRED by law to carry ID, either in the form of a driver's license or an ID card issued by the state. Legal immigrants are REQUIRED to carry their proof of citizenship status- they are REQUIRED by law to show their ID if any law enforcement asks for it, why the hell shouldn't illegals have to prove where the hell they are from!? Fuck all you fucktards that think Arizona is doing something wrong! Go look up the laws in this country and you'll realize they are the only state upholding the law of the land.
    You think it's legal immigrants that are MURDERING police officers, you think it's legal immigrants that are MURDERING innocent family members or police officers and court officials, I don't fucking think so!



  38. 38

    Stupid Asses, what do they know about being "unconstitutional?" What they don't know is that the American Constitution and all it's "rights" apply ONLY to AMERICANS NOT Foreign Invaders!



  39. 39

    Wow this is truly Amazing



  40. 40

    I like how there are a bunch of idiots here blaming "illegals" for problems. I say get an education first, show me where you received your information, and I will counter all of your false arguments!



  41. 41

    The problem is, is that they come here and have children and now the children are US citizens!

    If you are here illegally you should have to leave. There were so many illegal citizens that came into the bank I worked with food stamps and medicaid cards for themselves and their kids and I couldn't even get a private policy when I quit and went back to school because I had a pre-existing condition! So now I'm paying through the a** for COBRA because I'm required to have coverage for school!

    I don't give a sh*t about these illegals! GO HOME! Quit taking our jobs, money and everything else.

    If you become a citizen you should have to pay taxes and learn the language. When I was working at a bank a lady came in who was a citizen with a green card and didn't know English and she lived int he US longer than I have been alive! If you haven't picked up something by now there is a problem! When I go to Mexico, Italy, Germany or any other country I will learn something to at least ask where the bathroom is!

    STOP BEING IDIOTS
    .
    There is NO SUCH THING as "Illegal Immigration" or an "Illegal Immigrant"
    .
    They are all ILLEGAL ALIENS.
    .
    The ONLY way someone can Immigrate is LEGALLY



  43. 43

    Re: jokerface – way to go, dude. the whole movement is against race, not illegality. if the mexicans were all white caucasians like most of the country's population there would be no one going after them.



  44. 44

    Atleast its not the Mexicans that are blowing up our buildings and cities! I'd rather have them here and pay for their housing, etc., then have these fucking dirty desert monkey terrorists living here legally. The Mexicans just want work THE TERRORISTS WANT TO KILL US ON OUR OWN SOIL and they're all laughing at us, building their bombs and plotting against us while we're fighting about Mexicans!
    WISE UP PEOPLE!!!



  45. 45

    I really don’t understand why Arizona is willing to be under this kind of scrutiny with a bill that makes a very good argument for discrimination, profiling, and violation of Civil Liberties. Just let the Giant sleep

    I understand what they are trying to bring attention to, but what good does it do to kill the flies that are in your house when the doors and windows are still open?

    You run 1 out and 3 come in, because this bill does nothing to address the real issue of securing the border!

    Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

  46. 46

    Undocumented aka illegal immigrants DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS. People fail to realize this. Or are we just all mindlessly following an administration trying to silently eliminate that little detail of federal law?

    Become a citizen and pay taxes or GTFO.

    Cypress Hill … relevant? No. Go away. If you want to make some kind of comeback, generate news about your act, not by getting involved in politics. That's a proven way to lose legitimacy … or don't you guys care?

    Perez, I love you, but just because you're Cuban doesn't mean you need to side with other latinos. Or are you not a citizen … ? That might explain a lot. Usually you're right about most things, but you're DEAD wrong on this issue, and I wish you'd see that or drop it. You're a gossip blogger, not a politician.



  47. 47

    it's so funny how a lot of the white illegal minorities haters forget the fact they descent from immigrants also and a lot of those immigrants were also illegal in the past. but they were white, so, no problem. there are a lot of illegal irish people living in the boston area, i live here for 10 years and never heard about any of those getting ever arrested. latinos, on the other hand, OMG, we hear stories about them getting arrested every week on the tv and that's sad.



  48. 48

    Oh…boo fucking hoo. Who gives a shit if the has-been group Cypress HIll cancelled their concert. Yet another group of people who don't know a fucking thing about the new law and who are taking a stand against something they have only mariginal knowledge about. Go fuck yourselves Cypress Hill and smoke more ganja. Maybe bringing in illegal drugs in to AZ is what really has you canceling.



  49. 49

    I want ALL of you posters to know how PROUD I am of you!!! This law is 100% constitutional AND legal!

    Obviously, Perez doesn't read the actual news articles nor does it appear that he has yet to employ a fact checker.

    The majority of people in America support this law, and Cyprus Hill sucks. I agree, they can show their solidarity with Mexico by having their concert there, and I hope that every time they go through a Border Patrol checkpoint, that they are pulled over for inspection! I bet you'd find some MASSIVE amounts of dope on their tour bus!

    TEAM ARIZONA ALL THE WAY!



  50. 50

    Re: mom22freaks – AMEN. Seems like most people bashing this law want to ignore the whole huge drug war thing. Yeah, that little itty bitty war that's already claimed more lives than the current war in the Middle East. (Don't believe me? Look it up. If anyone wants to question me, I insist they look that up first)



  51. 51

    what's really funny, is that the "mexicans" will be the majority in about 25 years. everyone will be speaking Spanish if they want a job. Assimilate or perish.



  52. 52

    Arizonan's are not anti-Mexican. We are anti people bleeding the system. We are anti-crime and drug lords infiltrating our state and killing innocent victims. We are tired of high insurance rates, but illegals who get free medical. We are tired of the rest of the country looking at us and pointing a finger. You wait, many more states are waiting in the wings to do the exact same thing that we have done. Welcome to the new world order!

    Everyone needs to stop talking shit cause if you were in their place you'll be feeling the same thing they are. Immigrants don't get everything for free, they work their fucking ass off to get the shit they have. Yeah, some immigrants are into all that gang shit but not everyone if the same. Most immigrants want to live the "American Dream" if it even exist but anyways …. I swear all of you are so damn racist and ignorant. Don't act like immigrants get shit handle to them cause they don't. Every day they have to deal with racist people, money problems, and worrying about how they going to get things for their family.

    I fucking hate how all of you assume immigrants are Hispanic, open up your fucking eyes and look the fuck around because other races are immigrants.

    [ what goes around comes back the fuck around ]

    One day you'll all feel the same shit they feel and don't go preying to god to help you; dumb asses.



  54. 54

    Oh however will us Arizonans survive without has-beens like Cypress Hill??
    I'm all choked up right now.
    Lol!



  55. 55

    Re: jokerface – No, they're busy blowing up their own people! Do you ever read the news? The Mexicans are fond of mass killings, kidnappings and violence you cannot fathom. They kill women and children, and they murder police officers, federal officials, and their families without remorse.

    They are quite fond of decapitation and dismemberment. They'll also leave notes at the scene of mass murders written with the blood of the victims that usually read, in Spanish, "Fuck you pigs, we will kill anyone who gets in our way. All these dead men are pigs, they are shit, and this will happen to you if you get in our way. Fuck you, fuck your mothers. This will be you!"

    And THESE are the people you want to so blindly support? You need to get a clue dumb-ass!



  56. 56

    PEREZ- do you not see your the only one on your web site that feels this law is wrong. SO MAYBE YOU SHOULD STOP GOING ON ABOUT IT. I love you and this site, but most of American Citizens agree with AZ and dont need to hear you go on and on about this one. Its about F*cking time. IT WAS ALREADY A FED LAW - WOW and 1 state is ready to clean up. Good. The rest of the states should too. Im sick of pressing 5 for english everytime I call customer service lines.



  57. 57

    Re: Sexsai – Stupid ass, there are low cost clinics that will treat you. Get off your lazy ass and check it out.
    And its a proven fact - the majority of people on welfare are white, and on food stamps, same with subsidized housing, AND lets not forget - child molesters!



  58. 58

    What a bunch of idiots. I am sure Arizona if pretty happy about that considering these brain dead slobs are hasbeens and no one cares what they do. They are probably only doing it for the publicity anyway. Throw all the illegals out and seal off the border. Once we fix all our problems we can start worrying about the problems of people who want to immigrate here.



  59. 59

    1) This post is bunk. Police can't detain anyone they want; the person has to break the law first before they can be asked about their immigration status

    2) Who gives two shits about Cypress Hill anymore?



  60. 60

    Re: BIg MC – oh, heaven forbid you need to use your finger to push A NUMBER to get customer service, oh the horror. Talk about lazy. If only my life were that tough.



  61. 61

    I agree with the previous comments. If you're not going to be doing anything bad, then become legal. If you really disagree you must be up to something. it's not fair. Nowadays, instead of saying "be lucky you were born in america" should say "you should've been born outside so you can come in america illegally and get a better deal" fuck that.



  62. 62

    HOW ABOUT PROTESTING THAT "HISPANIC" IS NO LONGER CONSIDERED A RACE ON THE 2010 CENSUS; THAT'S WHAT HISPANICS SHOULD BE UP IN ARMS ABOUT FIRST OF ALL!!!!! & THE FACT THAT THEY'RE NOT……SHOWS THE IRRATIONAL IRONY THAT EXISTS IN THIS COUNTRY……………..



  63. 63

    Weirdest excuse for poor ticket sales I've ever heard.



  64. 64

    How does the consitution apply to and ILLEGAL immigrant??? How about all these dumb fuck democrats get their heads out of their asses and realize that if you are not a LEGAL CITIZEN of this country, you don't have rights!!!!!!!!!!!! Shit, send all the left wing physcos down to Mexico too!



  65. 65

    I am white, an American-born citizen and I live in AZ. I'll be damned if I get hauled downtown by Sheriff Redneck and get detained while I have someone fetch my US Passport because the cops are bending over backwards trying to prove they aren't racial profiling. THAT is what I care about. You supporters of this new nazi-like rule might want to think about your own personal liberties and freedoms you are so willing to sacrifice because you hate brown people.



  66. 66

    People are so ignorant. Undocumented people do pay taxes (sales taxes and federal taxes) but they cannot get it back like you xenophobic bitches because they use fake social security numbers. Think a little before getting on the racist bandwagon. Why do you think the fed government doesn't do anything?



  67. 67

    Ppl love to throw around the word racist…but really just because you want the borders secure does not mean that. That is so unfair. I thought this law was very wrong UNTIL i read it and looked things up and found stuff out. Arizona has a HUGE crime problem and yes it is due mostly to illegal immigrants. That is a fact. Why is it that every other immigrant must go thru the naturalization process while its ok for others to just sneak in? Do you honestly think Mexico is the only country that oppresses people because its not. So lets apply the same thinking and everyone can just sneak in here and we can have total chaos. I do not think they should just walk up to ppl and ask for papers but if they are detained for something or got in trouble with the law then yes you need to prove you are a citizen.



  68. 68

    Re: Random Reader
    and that's where the real argument is at, everyone knows being here illegally is a crime in itself…

    But legalizing racial profiling against a race goes against what America is all about, well at least since 1964..

    if there is any doubt this law is not racially profiling read a few of the comments on here, why are people using the word "Mexicans", not every brown skinned person is a Mexican, and not every Mexican is an illegal…Sorry that United States citizens don't all meet your standards of white skin, blue/green eyes!



  69. 69

    somebody tell these dummies that people who are in this country ILLEGALLY have no rights !! and they might want to know that there is nothing in the arizona law that isn't already federal law. sheesh.. what a bunch of 'trendy' losers !

    Re: Sexsai – Go anyway, asap, and work out a payment plan over time. Skip the doctor, and find a dermatologist and sit in his or her office until someone doesn't show up. They might use cryosurgery right away (a freezing spray) and it simply blisters after a few minutes and then heals up in a couple of weeks or a month. Easy. Don't wait.



  71. 71

    SWEET, we don't need no stinkin' Cypress Hill here. Illegals NOT ALLOWED!!!



  72. 72

    First of all, the drug lords are a group of people who DO NOT represent all Mexicans. Just like terrorists DO NOT represent Middle Easterners, and just like the KKK DOES NOT represent all white people. We all have to understand that implying a race is all responsible for something is RACISM. With that in mind, I am American and my family did come from Mexico, I am also a student in a CA university, and my family pays taxes and they do work. You can't blame others for your own misfortune. This immigration bill is questionable, especially because there is a possibility that the organization that proposed this bill have ties to white supremacists.



  73. 73

    I'm from AZ just watched the news a few days ago. They were showing a roomful of people becoming legal US citizens. It took a woman from Russia 81/2 years but she did it, another woman from Haiti and there were some people from Peru. These people did all the necessary steps to become an AMerican. THey are legal and able to work in the USA. So I don't get it why are the illegal immigrants that are crossing border from Mexico any different. Wake up and smell the burritos people, its the LAW



  74. 74

    Re: Sexsai – We are ALL entitled to our opinions. But yours is just plain racist and stupid. I can't (but won't) wish that your forehead had cancer because I am not going down to your level. But what you said about Mexicans being lazy just made me laugh. Yes, they may have come here illegally but there is NO WAY you can call them LAZY. Lets see who picks your veggies,builds your trailer for your trash all under the hot sun.
    I can go on and on but I won't because I should have known by reading your stupid post that none of this is making any sense to you. Your probably like a blow up doll. You look life like but with no brain/heart what so ever!!!!



  75. 75

    SWEET, we don't need no stinkin' Cypress Hill here. Illegals are just that, illegals and they ARE NOT ALLOWED!!!



  76. 76

    I bet their Arizona fans are not happy. Like this "stand" will persuade lawmakers to change HA.



  77. 77

    Perez, or should I say Mario,

    You obviously have not educated yourself on this bill. Law enforcement cannot target someone for looking "illegal". Said person must be in the act, or suspected of being in the act, of committing a crime. Illegal aliens have no "civil rights" in our country. They have committed a crime by illegally crossing our border. YES, illegal aliens in California use an enormous of state resources. When they go to the ER, who pays for it? When they have children in our country, who pays for it? When those children go to our schools and receive aid, who pays for it? U.S. citizen do…unless you know of illegal aliens who pay taxes. This is not a racist law, this is a federal law meant to protect our country. Years ago foreign people immigrated to the U.S.A in search of a better life. They assimilated and became AMERICANS. It seems that today most illegal aliens have no intention of becoming true Americans, but rather coming into our country and taking advantage of every possible resource and then complaining they aren't getting more. Come on, Mario…you know this isn't a racist law, but rather preservation of the best country in the world. You are tainted by emotion and ignorance.



  78. 78

    Re: Nimawai – Uh…I couldn't get on the internet if I were in a cave, does that make sense to you? That's the reason why sexsai hates the Mexicans because they gave him the herpes on his head, duh.



  79. 79

    So they are punishing their fans for this? People may get ticket price refunds from Ticketmaster, but I don't think Ticketmaster will refund their outrageously high "convenience" fees. I understand canceling a show due to illness, death in the family, etc. But I seriously doubt anyone that bought tickets to the show is one of the people that signed the law.



  80. 80

    I'm half mexican but I think it's great what Arizona is doing. It's annoying when ppl like Perez and whoever else is against it, hate so much don't even know why. They are fighting for rights for illegal aliens? REALLY? They have no idea what they are talking about, they are just regurgitating the lies most liberals are telling (they have the right to detain anyone they suspect…oh yeah? They have the right to detain someone they believe to be illegal that have no documentation, or expired documentation. Not just for fun idiots.) There is a reason why the gov is getting everyone excited over this. I guarantee in about 6 months something big is going to happen I just can't say exactly what it is. Anyways, I too think other states bordering Mexico should enforce the same law. People say "oh, illegals work their asses off" well there is a thing called a work visa! I have no problem with immigrants coming to our country to better their and their families lives, but do it the right way.

    Maybe we need to take a closer look at their passports, there appears to be at least one illegal amongst that stoned group of homos. What part of GET OUT don't you understand?

    It is truly heartbreaking to see how ignorant and uneducated so many people are when it comes to the immigration issue. Have you ever considered questioning the law? Just because something is written into the books does not make it right! Those in favor of enforcing this law need to reconsider their morale! How can you come and say that "illegals" are a burden to the economy when they contribute so much! Who's back-breaking work is exploited so that you can afford cheaper goods? Don't come and tell me you and I, too, don't benefit from the system — a system that exploits, criminalizes, and neglects people of color. It's not about individual racist people: It's called systemic racism! This country has been built on racist policies that have marginalized people of color, expropriated them from their lands!!! Check your history books: These "illegals" didn't cross the border, the border crossed them! The U.S. took this land from Mexico!
    Also, the reason why most Mexicans come to the U.S. is the U.S.'s fault but that's a whole other issue!
    Please educate yourselves. It is ignorance that leads to such policies and the worst you can do is deny the fact that they are RACIST, because racism is still very much present today! Don't come and tell me it's not! As a proud CHICANA, I would know!

    Then they should pay for those fucking Mexicans. When they're squeezing out those 8 kids, who the fuck do you think is picking up the tab? That's right - the American tax payer, of which I am one. They come here, work there low paid jobs, pay little in taxes, and then expect us to support their asses while they breed like rabbits.

    They did the people of Arizona a favor. They suck anyway.

    Yes, Cypress Hill should do a concert in Mexico, and while they're at it, take a few tour buses full of wetbacks with them.
    TEAM ARIZONA!!

    Re: Sexsai – uh, lets not confuse mexicans and illegals. my whole family is full mexican and we work fucking hard for everything and we're ALL legal. so dont go say fuck mexicans, say fuck the illegals

    Re: Sexsai – You are ignorant and uneducated.You should not talk about comming here legally if you dont know what one has to go thru to get here legally. The reasons that hispanics are the ones who come here illegally more than people from other countries is because it is almost impossible. In Latin countries "poor" people cannot go thru the process of doing paperwork to come here. It cost money to do the paerwork and these people dont have the money to do that. Plus you have to know people and have commections. These are corrupt countries and this is the only way. Most of the people who come legally are families or girlfriends of drug dealers or family memebers of politians. They are the only ones that can afford this. Decent humble people who do not have money cannot do this. I know this for a fact. Americans will never understand because they can go in and out the United States as they please. Domt judge a entire race because a few people who break the law. If I was to judge all americans based on you I would think all of them were as ignorant as you!

    Unconstitutional?? This is already a federal law. Oh that’s right our government no longer cares about the Constitution anyway.

    Re: Sexsai – you are a fuckin idiot!! since theyre Illegal, they Do not have the opportunity to get free health insurance. They pay out of pocket. You just sound ignorant and you're fucking disgusting. Share your nasty ass medical problems elsewhere.

    Re: jokerface – Mexico actually enforces their immigration laws….that is if you can get past the drug cartel (if ur a female i wouldn't recommend the risk…sex trade and all). But jokerface on a more serious note…u should try to sneak across and see how the hospitals are. I think it would be a learning experience for u.



  93. 93

    Sorry that ILLEGALS will have a harder time being in the country. You want the perks, become a citizen. It's not profiling, they're criminals. I've heard people start to compare it to nazis/jews. Are you fucking kidding me? Mexicans, all immigrants are gladly accepted. Just be legal. Duh. It's not racism people. I could understand why you'd be upset though since your mooching and free loading is over.



  94. 94

    And to say none of us are Americans, we all immigrated.. Yea, America is a melting pot, but we're already fucking broke, we already don't have insurance for OUR citizens, are we really expected to take care of illegal immigrants too? C'mon now.



  95. 95

    hummmm…..looks like you made the anchor baby point.



  96. 96

    R u kidding? Pathetic that you support this perez. So let's have all the people who YOU SUPPORT HERE and live off our taxes come to your back yard and plant themselves there. YOU PAY FOR THEM OUT OF YOUR POCKET, and give us all who DON"T Support this to OPT OUT. Let them use your schools, your roads, your librarys, your emergency rooms for free and make more money then you because they don't pay taxes that you have to. I'm sure you would decline if they gave you the option to add more taxes to your paycheck to support illegal aliens. Please….



  97. 97

    For all the haters. Cypress hill have been around for a long time and are successful. If you're a hip hop fan then youll know.

    I applaud them. Theyre doing the right thing and hopefully people (esp. the racist ones) will see how this dumb immigration law will Only create more hate and discrimination. It already has people attacking each other and arguing. There could be other more productive and intelligent ways to fix the immigration 'problem'. But this is certainly Not the way!



  98. 98

    Wow. I've never left a comment before but I read some of the previous comments and am thoroughly disappointed. I believe that everyone is entitled to their opinion but let's make educated and respectful arguments. It's the only way we can try to understand each other's points of view. I know that a majority of Perez readers are younger and to read comments such as "Fucking Mexicans come here and spread their legs, never pay taxes, its country full of lazy retards, etc." SCARY… Those type of comments remind me of scary times. Unfortunatley, maybe we have not progressed as much as people since those times. FYI: Undocumented workers do pay taxes and they cannot apply for a tax refund because they have invalid social security #'s.

    Re: Sexsai – You're talking from the ignorance, my dear. Many of your statements are NOT true and I'm not going to waste my time explaining them to you. Please educate yourself. I'm sorry that you have to blame the mexicans for your skin problem.

    SINK AZ, SINK!!!

    Re: festus11 – i kno u didnt say that to me. You replied to someone else's comment, but i have to say: fuck u! I dont care. You just sound like an @sshole w dat comment u said. Call me watever u want, but u? U r an absolute @ss. Have a bad day ;-) LoL
