NOOOOO! Other States Want Immigration Laws Too!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

ap10050241033722.jpg

Even though Arizona's new immigration law doesn't go into effect until July 29th, many other states are planning on following in its footsteps.

The law requires police to check immigration status of anyone they think is in the country illegally with violators facing up to six months in jail, $2,500 in fines, and federal deportation.

Unfortunately, as many as 20 other states such as Florida, Minnesota, Idaho, and Oklahoma are planning on pushing similar measures in 2011.

Supporters of the law say that illegal immigrants are taking jobs, consuming public resources and services, aiding in gang violence and filling prisons.

However, those who oppose the bill say that citizens with the "wrong color" would be unjustly harassed.

This would be terrible!! Immigration laws like these would just fuel more racism and hatred!!

We need to put a stop to these offensive measures and show that we will not stand for this kind of discrimination!

    Re: plurbby123 – Please do us all a favor and come back when you can form a coherent sentence.

    HEEELLLOOOO . do you think it is just a coincidence that the amount of illegal immigrants over the past ten years has increased so much at the same time our country's defecate has as well!?!? Stop saying stupid shit about discrimination. go on youtube and look a the videos of mexicans in L.A stomping on the American flag, spitting on it, burning it, they arent here because they are proud to be in America they are here because we have allowed them to get away with everything for free. HELLO PEREZ HAVE YOU DONE YOUR RESEARCH? DO YOU KNOW THE AMOUNT OF HOSPITALS THAT HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN thanks to the free health care that they get?? I wonder how much american money has been given to illegals tax free under the table just for them to send it out of the country… that would be some scary fucking math. Oh yeah and do some research about how many illegal immigrants take up room in our prison, not only are these people landing themselves in prison but we pay for them to live there. :D how lucky are we. have you ever thought about comparing america to mexico? The people of America are the reason why our country is as amazing as it is so if you arent going to go back home and fix your own country then do shit legally, be here legally and be proud to be a hard working tax paying fucking american.

    FINALLY! I wish Vermont would jump on that bandwagon too. I don't get why people could be so against this?

    READ THE LAW! It's out there to read and it is legal and lawful.

    Arizona is doing what they need to do and other states SHOULD FOLLOW their lead. I have no problem with people coming here to make a better life but follow the rules or leave, it's that simple. Just in the last two weeks in my state there have been three fatal car wrecks involving illegal aliens, in each case they were drunk and carrying drugs and ended up killing innocent people. They killed a man who had two young daughters, in another wreck the woman that died was a grandmother and her young grandson died too. Then after all these wrecks the police bust four different meth houses in the northern part of the state, all of them were houses full of illegals who had the house stocked with stolen items and drugs. A lot of the people coming here are BAD people who are running drugs. Anyone who wants to be here to better themselves will go about it the right way. We NEED TO GET RID of the criminals who are coming here and if this law helps then good for Arizona. I hope other states will do the same, mine included.



  5. 505

    OMG Perez- SNAP OUT OF IT!!! you NEED TO BE MORE LIKE WILL.I.AM and help the US!!! why are you so f'n gunghoe about supporting darfur etc. Man, we need all the help in America that we can get and people like you should be encouraging help for the US. WE CANNOT JUST GO MOVE TO MEXICO__THEREFORE WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S OKAY THEY CAN MOVE HERE??? don't forget about Cuba— Miami is cuba- SICK!

    Re: nomad6095

    READ THE LAW. Actually READ it and then post, there is nothing illegal about how the law goes about asking for ID. READ IT.



  7. 507

    All I have to say is this land belongs to Indians and Mexicans. White people and African Americans arrived by boat and doesnt give them a right to be legal. There are the good and bad in each race only thing is that we stand up for ourselves legal or not. We know how to do EVERYTHING a white person and African american can do. Lazy people just make excuses for not having a job, if they offer one then take it. We r not picky. ALL illegals have no life insurance or health insurance. Ive known of whites and African Americans having 4-6 kids and living off the government-first deal with your own people before talking about mexicans. We are taking over this country so deal with it-if you dont like it then go back to where your ancestors came from-IN a boat. lol



  8. 508

    Re: lesbiana – Sorry sweetie- you come to America, you learn OUR language, or go home.



  9. 509

    OK, its not discrimination at all!!!! we r in recession and the last thing we need is illegal immigrants. i live in tx and it amazes me that these illegals r taken over, there over here stealing our identies, killng our kids with violance, living on welfare while they sit at home and have like 20 babies and then tryin to talk shit cause they have no rights, YOU HAVE TO BE A CITIZEN TO HAVE RIGHTS! i think everystate should have this law and no one can call me a racistist my son is hispanic but his father is here legally!!! HOW ABOUT EVERY AMERICAN GO TO MEXICO ILLEGALLY i bet 100% we would be getting beat down by there police, raped, murdered, and unwelcome, so there lucky they have been getting away with it this long.



  10. 510

    Take a hint perez… illegal is ILLEGAL!!! Its about time other states stood up for themselves!



  11. 511

    this isn't about being 'coloured' its about them breaking the law. everyone should be treated equally. so we cant let ILLEGAL immigrants get away with committing a crime just because people are afraid to get called racist. They're criminals, we all have to respect the law.



  12. 512

    Re: ladylumpz84 – Actually, if you're going that route, the land belongs to the indigenous peoples - most Mexicans are not anywhere close to being 100% indigenous (over 95% of indigenous people died after conquest) and are actually of Spanish or other European ancestry. Read a history book.
    If you want to take over the country, then do it legally. No one cares if Hispanics become the dominant race in the US, as long as they immigrate legally and pay taxes. The only people in the US that should be entitled to welfare are its citizens.
    It's funny that you tell Americans to go back to where they came from, when your ancestors are likely European. All countries have immigration laws preventing people from immigrating, so it wouldn't be possible for someone of Irish, Scottish, French, etc. descent to just move back over.



  13. 513

    Re: ladylumpz84 – Lumpy- my birth certificate says I was born here more than 40 years ago, so I AM a LEGAL AMERICAN. Instead of taking over our country… how about you go back home and try to fix yours, because I am sick of paying taxes for lazy schlubs and drug dealers who think they are above our laws.



  14. 514

    ARE YOU FUCKING HIGH PEREZ? WTF IS WRONG WITH EXPECTING PEOPLE TO ENTER THIS COUNTRY LEGALLY? NOBODY SAYS THEY CAN'T COME HERE, THEY JUST CAN'T COME HERE ILLEGALLY! WTF AM I MISSING…



  15. 515

    Re: MOMMIE DEAREST – Amen to that. You hit right on the bullseye!!!! We keep letting them in, we will be the minority



  16. 516

    from what I am hearing it isnt racial profiling. but lets be real fucking honest for a minute and say that "racial profiling" doesn't apply when it's true. and the same goes for stereotyping, it isnt a stereotype if it's always the same people. my family is from armenia, they came here the legal way. my husbands family is mexican, THEY came here the legal way. and do you think any of them oppose this law?? No! they're angry they did it the hard way and all of these people are screwing them and everyone else.



  17. 517

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – I realize you are not a racist hater like "Eldridge & co". I have read your posts before, which is why I was a bit suprised that you took the position you have on this issue.
    I am in no way supporting people from other countries flooding in here and living here illegallly. I just know this law isn't the answer.
    This Jan Brewer is everything you say you would never side with. Are you aware she also recently signed a bill banning ethnic studies from the classroom?
    She is trying to ban stem cell research to appease the religious right nuts and ease up on gun laws! So this immigration law she has passed is just more of the same. I for one am not fooled by it! Republicans need votes-immigration is a huge problem-look she's doing something about it-NOT!
    This Republican backwardness and racism from the right is exactly why we don't have a comprehensive federal immigration policy in place today!
    Oh, and then we have the teabaggers and birther INSANITY which is a huge "cult" lol in AZ! That whole crazy crowd has alot to do with this! I have no time to get into all that…



  18. 518

    Re: Serena Loves Mario
    Suffice to say, this will not even begin to fix the broken immigration policy in this country! And I quite frankly find it disturbing that other states are getting in line to pass similar laws!
    Racial profiling WILL happen even though it CAN'T happen in this country!!!
    Only good thing is that this may finally light a fire under Obama's ASS!
    So, I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this one :)
    I am 100% siding with the Obama administration on this issue!



  19. 519

    Re: muffintop185 – hahaha Just because your property of the United States you feel special please…give me a break. And as for stealing state aid…I work with immigration attorneys..There are a great majority of illegal immigrants that pay taxes…so they have every right as you do…just becase they dont have a card that says legal. Look around you alot of mexicans were in the united states before alot of the European immigrants came to the united states. As far as bringing drugs, and violence, people uneducated like you should know better. Drugs are brought because americans buy them and every country and every race has violence, you are just stereotyping which is very pathetic to see latinos like you feel that way. and as far as Jobs please…there are so many americans filing for unemployement but i dont understand why there are a ton of jobs out there..they just cant do the dirty ones…and they complain that we are stealing jobs? come on. People need to get real..we dont need to be going back to 1950s. As far as language…u should learn spanish….by 2020 your probably gonna need it.



  20. 520

    Dear Perez,
    I live in arizona and I know for a fact that my governor is not promoting racism/discrimination. She is promoting a safe place for her state to live. I come here from poland and I have to prove that I am here legally & it makes me mad that I had to show my residency and they don't. I am all for the arizona law and so is mostly everyone else. Its the illegal immagrants that are getting pissed off. I understand that people want to live here for a better tomorrow but they need to do it legally like my family & I did.



  21. 521

    Re: supersongbird – To be honest, I know nothing about Jan Brewer, but from what you've said, I definitely wouldn't like her.
    I definitely don't disagree with you, because I know you do see that there's a problem and perhaps this isn't the way to solve it. I just think something, anything needs to be done at this point.



  22. 522

    Re: melissamomof2

    Technically the united states does not have an official language. :)



  23. 523

    All countries on this planet have a right to protect their boarders! Recently a Somalian Al Quida operative was arrested in Brownsville, Tx. There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking for ID! I have to present my ID when pulled over for a traffic violation.
    Stop being stupid Perez-Our boarders are war zones right now and the states must do what they have to do to handle this enormous problem! Plus there is an existing federal law in place!
    Why don't you go camp out on the boarder? Then maybe you will see the point of the LEGAL citizens of this country.



  24. 524

    Here we go again, more bullshit. Illegals are ILLEGAL!!! Period, enough said.



  25. 525

    Re: MileyCyrusLooksLikeAChipmunk – Thank you! I said the same thing yesterday and was told I was wrong, it was English, and I needed to be educated! I'm so glad to see another intelligent person here.



  26. 526

    Re: Esmeralda Casanova – Having to type loooong messages probably make you tired, right? No, I don't know you, I judge you by what you type on this messageboard. That shows me, and other people who have commented on what you said, that you have a naieve and ignorant way of looking at the world we're living in today. How many other countries have you visited or lived in? Are you familiar with the immigration laws of other countries? Because then you would know that the US has had extremely 'friendly' laws when it comes to immigration. I don't need any help, you clearly do.



  27. 527

    Perez, you're an absolutely ill-informed, ignorant fool if you think this is racism. First off, what most people don't know is that it is already a FEDERAL law that all resident aliens must carry their green card with them at all times, and must be able to present it if asked for it, at any time! The states are ONLY exercising their right to enforce this law! I am a Mass. liberal from Kennedy country and I have never opposed this law, and if other states want to enforce it, then I say YES! As others have posted - READ the actual law. Perhaps you should stick with what you know, which is ridiculously shallow, and immature commentary, because clearly you are not intelligent enough to handle truly intellectual and relevant social issues!



  28. 528

    Re: supersongbird – Hiya! We disagree on this one, oh no! ;) You've been away for quite some time. I think this is an interesting topic, my opinion is based upon all sorts of articles on the subject and what I've heard from some of my friends in Arizona and Florida. They consider this law to be a blessing in many ways. I don't think it's racist, the law itself isn't, it isn't different from immigration laws in numerous other countries, but the people upholding it could make it racist, that's the problem. If the law is handled correctly, illegal aliens should worry, not just people who happen to have coloured skin.



  29. 529

    It's the law idiot, not discrimination. If they are here legally, there shouldn't be anything to worry about!



  30. 530

    Good. If you want to enter the US to live and work then do it legally.



  31. 531

    Perez - If you really want to seem educated on this issue, please do at least 2 things: 1) read the law. It's not terribly long and I think you will find it to be very rational. It does not allow police to simply stop someone because they "appear" illegal. 2) read CA penal code relative to ID…it is very similar. LA PD implemented Special Order 40 following the riots to get around the existing penal code.



  32. 532

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – Howdy! I just wanted to let you know that I've never used a racial slur on this website. Not once. In fact, if I see anyone using the n word, I attack them even if they agree with me on whatever is the issue at hand.



  33. 533

    Why do they always bring mexican flags to these protests? I never understood that. They love mexico so much but want to live her?
    Anyways, I have 3 friends from Europe who all got their US citizenship by doing it the "legal" way. The women who cuts my hair was born in mexico. She came to the states through the proper channels, learned english, and took the citizenship test. She now owns her own hair salon place. I just don't understand how people can be pro-illegal immigrants.



  34. 534

    Re: Moogle80 – Hi :) Yeah been busy!
    No, I don't think we do disagree! Most other people on these posts think because I'm against this AZ law that I am FOR illegals. No, I just know this is not the fix for it!
    And it absolutely will lead to racial profiling which may lead to deportation but without solving any other aspects of this issue-like closing the border.
    I think you and I would rather Obama handle this than individual states. Especially GOP states :) The thing is-WHEN will he do something?
    As I pointed out already, the DRUG WAR is a huge factor which makes comparing US immigration issues much different from those of most other countries.
    So while I believe comprehensive reform at a federal level is the way to go, unless at least marijuana is legalized (AND TAXED of course) we won't be able to completely solve this problem!
    Marijuana laws happen to be a state legislative issue right now. Don't think Obama's going THERE lol although he should!
    Anyway-F Arizona, John McCain is too far left for them now lol!
    We'll see if The Dept of Justice does file suit against AZ how this will play out!
    In the mean time- team Obama for me!



  35. 535

    GOOD… YOU NEED TO COME TO THIS COUNTRY LEGALLY JUST LIKE I HAVE TO TRAVEL OUT OF IT LEGALLY!!!!!!! PERIOD… GO ARIZONA AND GO EVERY OTHER STATE THAT BELIEVES THE SAME THING!



  36. 536

    I think this is bullshit.. Most americans don't want mainly mexicans over here just because they take jobs away from them.. Damn just admit it you are too damn lazy to do your work so the bossman has to hire a mexican to do your job.. I was born in the united states, but i think they shouldnt wait years just for the government to approved them.. if they wasnt here then we wouldn't have most of the things we do now.. The united states gets more job work done with mexicans working them.



  37. 537

    so hilarious that some of you people are saying they should stop playing the race card. when your calling them deragatory names. you are the racists. they never did anything to you. im an American. and both my parents are legal.

    its sad that you sad people call them names, you have no idea what some of these people have been through just to get to America, such a great place especially with people like you calling them wetbacks and criminals.

    what this is is RACIAL PROFILING. dont think there arent Mexicans with no Degrees from college. Think about that!

    the government obviously forgets that there are illegal immigrants that are other nationalities too! they dont even know their shit if their just picking out the mexicans. and i think its bullshit that middle class Americans would actually work at mcdonalds, janitors, cleaning ladies, bus boys, etc. just for a job!



  38. 538

    Re: jeremyandkristy

    they are poor! if it was that easy im sure a bunch would become legal! why do you think they come to america anyways? because their country is so great and they are living a good life.NO!

    I SAY GOOD.
    IM ALL FOR LEGAL IMMIGRATION BUT THE IDEA THAT PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY OPPOSING LAWS TO KEEP ILLEGALS OUT IS JUST INSANE TO ME.
    look at the UK with its horrible indian immigration issues…its eaten their economy for years.

    Re: JDicaprio
    honey, forget not that it wasnt too long ago that we DID in fact take jobs like McDonalds, landscaping, janitorial services and industry. you are blind. what is wrong with allowing these people to LEGALLY compete for these jobs based on their qualifications instead of their willingness to work cheap



  41. 541

    I invite Perez Hilton and any body else who doesn't know a hill of beans about our situation in Arizona to come on over and live near the border for a couple of weeks. See what the people who live near there have to deal with on a daily basis. It may not be Cancun, but it's full of excitement. I'd love for the White House to move near the border. People protest what they don't know.



  42. 542

    Re: melissamomof2 – you are a mean person! i know people who are ILLEGAL not from MEXICO and they are working!

    they are not drug dealers! as a matter of fact most of them are not drug dealers. do your research and not just listen to what the ppl around you are saying.



  43. 543

    what do you think would happen if our Government sent all illegal immigrants to their country?

    in a way, what happens to them once they leave is not the governments problem. they need to solve their own problems on their own. yes its sad they have kids and such but this is life. you either sink or swim



  44. 544

    Illegality is political, not racial. Stop being an ignorant drain on society.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – FUCKEN LIAR… you have racist all over your comments, you comment on Haiti and "their shitbox country", filthy mexicans, and how you hate Puerto Ricans because they ruined your neighborhood. And that Mexicans can go back to their shitbox country. Hummm is that not racist. You bipolar shithead!!!
    Has your race ever commited crimes? There are criminals of all race, shapes and colors. Or are you color blind.



  47. 547

    By reading through the comments of the few supporters, it seems pretty obvious that the people who support illegal immigration are …………..ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Suprise Suprise. They also all seem to have this mentality that "we" stole this land from Mexico from along time ago, so they are entitled to be here illegally. Ummmmm, okkkkkkkkk. Then there other argument is how all of the mexicans that come here illegally are hard workers, and Americans are lazy, so that makes being here illegally alright. Once again…. ummmmm, okkkkk. If this is the whole reasoning thats fueling this whole debate, then the pro-legal side has won. Illegal immigrants lose. Get your citizenship or get out.



  48. 548

    Re: MOMMIE DEAREST – wow…. ur a piece of work!!! was that really necessary?! are u a such a hateful person that u need to resort to name calling?! i bet if the jobs that illegal immigrants have now u wouldn't work them and neither would anyone that is legal…. because like most ppl like u… u think its beneath u. @ least they come here and work hard for their families unlike lazy ppl who collect welfare n live off of mommy n daddy. i can even bet ur an uneducated person, cause no one with education is as close minded as u!!!



  49. 549

    wow… i gotta say everyone on here is if not racist…. idiots!!! honestly wtf have illegal ppl ever done to u, but serve u, babysat u, cleaned ur house?! @ least they work hard n try n support their families unlike u lazy ppl who live off of welfare or mommy n daddy's money. cause i bet once those jobs became available non of u ppl would ever work them. i get it some ppl might not be here for the best of everyone but guess what, there's stupid f***** ignorant legal ppl too… so stfu!!!



  50. 550

    Dont be so naive people….really come on stop being so narrow minded for two minutes! Do you that if the illegals left and there were "SO MANY" jobs opened up that the people on welfare would work!?!? HELLLL NOO! You must be crazy!! hahahaha thats hilarious! You mean to tell me the tweekers,the girls with their nails all done,the lazy asses in the AC all day would actually go out and work!? haaa WOW…Let all the illegals LEAVE and lets see how many people will LOVE the jobs that opened up! Man most of you cant think outside the box! JUST AS I SUSPECTED! And really lets grow up people…stop makin it seem like MEXICANS are the only ones that are ILLEGALS! Really come on….if all these other countries were closer to us like mexico is then we would be worse off…



  51. 551

    Actually, its people that make stupid comments about these laws being racist getting race involved. this is not just an IMMIGRATION bill. it is an ILLEGAL immigration bill. 2 totally different subjects. & you cannot racially profile an immgrant for they can come from all around the world. It would do this country a tone of good if people actually studied the material they are speaking about before they decide to say something.



  52. 552

    Re: Lady_Saccharine_Sweetness
    No, the eligible Citizens, Residents who over spent money and overstretched themselves financially and who are still doing so, are wrecking the economy.

    To the original post, of course its racist. Its racial profiling if say I were to get arrested, or pulled over for whatever infraction I did, so it makes it ok for them to profile me and ask for my legal status just because I'm a latino?

    If they want to stop the "job stealing", how about incurring laws that require every registered business to submit documentation from their employees to the government to check for legal status and to require a finger print from all employees, not just those who you may believe to be "illegal" and have a person sort of like the health inspector to check to see if all employee's have proper documentation and to make sure none of them are wanted convicts or criminals. There's more proactive ways that are less discriminatory. If they want illegal aliens to stop using welfare and snaps, then pass a law that makes it a requirement that you have legal status here.



  53. 553

    I totally agree with Arizona and all the other states should do the same. Go to youtube and pull up some of the videos that the people in them,who just happens to be Hispanics,claim that they plan on reproducing and coming into this country illegally to be the majority and take over America



  54. 554

    Not discriminatory, people are tired of illegals stealing our SS #'s and taking all of our resources such as health care, Medicaid, food stamps and so on. I say Hooray for all these states including AZ.



  55. 555

    Why do you not get they need to enter the country the right way - through the front door! We can give out 5 million work visas lets just make sure we know who is in our country and if the break the law send them home and don't let them back in. I don't get how this law is bad for the police to check to see if someone broke a law - HELLO the are the police and it is their job to enforce the law!



  56. 556

    Re: fiona
    I have the same problem! I work as a nurse in the ER and we have this problem too. I work at night and the nurses and doctors that work the night shift usually can't speak Spanish or can't speak Spanish that well. I can't tell you how many times I have had people who came in that didn't speak a word of English and didn't have someone to translate for them. I have had a couple people come in and expect us to get a translator and would give us attitude for not having a translator! Some Mexican patients just speak in Spanish and don't even bother to at least use hand gestures, and the funny part is THEY get mad at us. One lady actually complained about how another hospital has a Spanish speaker and how it was ridiculous that we didn't! One man who was able to Speak English but not that well actually said we need a translator since so many people can only speak Spanish. It is pretty stressful. Now I have the same problem. They are starting to hire more nurses that are fluent in Spanish and when one receptionist quit, they refused to hire anyone that was not fluent in both Spanish and English.



  57. 557

    It is starting to get ridiculous. People think that illegals are helping out our economy so much by taking jobs we wont use but that's not true at all. So many people are out of jobs that they would be willing to take any job out there. The "crap jobs" everyone is talking about weren't always crap. Only reason they are low paying now is because the business owners know they can get away with it because illegals are willing to get paid that low.

    People who are saying that this is racist are not educated about this law at all. They can't just stop you because you look Mexican. They can only stop you if you do something illegal, only then they can ask you for papers. They can ask anyone. Including me who is fair skinned with green eyes.



  58. 558

    Re: Rgeezy
    How many times do people need to say it for you and all the other idiots to get it through your heads?? They are not only going to ask Latino's for their papers!! They are going to ask EVERYONE. Say it with me: They will ask anyone who breaks the law. A Policeman wont pull you over for speeding and say "oh well you look Latino so let me see your papers to make sure you are legal." The police will ask EVERYONE. If I get pulled over, caught shoplifting, or whatever the hell it is only then they can see if I am legal. And that is for…that's right you got it, EVERYONE. The means if a white man gets pulled over the police will check if he is legal. If a black man gets pulled over then the police will check if he is legal. If a red man gets pulled over then the police will check if he is legal. It doesn't matter who you are. So NO it is not racial profiling. I hope you and everyone else understands it since I said it 5 times. The only reason why Mexicans are the ones being pointed out is because there are so many of them here illegally, but they obviously aren't the only ones. So Latinos won't be the only ones ask. Its everyone. Oh there you go I said it 6 times. I hope everyone shuts up about it being racial profiling now.

    Has ANYONE ever heard of the phrase "History repeats itself" ?? Because it sure sounds like NO ONE has!! How did the Holocaust start people??? WIth what SEEMED MINOR things…whats next? Are illegal immigrants, or people who MIGHT LOOK LIKE they are immigrants, gonna have to start wearing something pinned to their clothes? [[the yellow star?]]
    EVERYONE, unless you are 100% Native American, that lives in the U.S. is an immigrant. Thats who this country was founded by…IMMIGRANTS FROM EUROPE. Now people are trying to complain about immigrants south of the border…thats just plain STUPID.



  61. 561

    Re: jess75 – right!! If they see two men, one who looks caucasian or has a caucasian man and another who is latino, i HIGHLY DOUBT they'll bother asking the white dude about his legal status…

    Re: gabbyninja
    First off, you sound like you're going way off the deep end.
    And secondly, the Native Americans came from South and Central America as well as Asia. No one knows for sure if any people group was indigenous to what is now called the United States of America.

    Re: misspris101 – Well, next time you see your illegal friends tell them to go home. And yes, I am mean.

    Re: melissamomof2

    Oh my goodness! Talking to some people on here is like talking to a wall. Did you not read my whole post? They can't stop you if you're not doing anything! Why can't you people understand that?! So if a Mexican and a white person were walking together the police would not stop them because they weren't committing a crime. If they were committing a crime then the police would stop both of them and ask both of them. Because believe it or not Mexicans aren't the only illegals in this country so they will ask EVERYONE. They can't just stop you on the street and ask for your papers. People who keep arguing about this need to get their damn facts straight. Go read the law then come on here complaining because you obviously haven't. If you did then you would know they can't just pick and choose who ever they want.



  65. 565

    Re: jess75 – First of all- with all of that rambling I have no idea what you are saying, I got bored about 3 words in. My point is simple- If I get pulled over (a 42 year old white woman who was born here with 2 my small children in the car) I fully expect to show my ID. It's the law. I take issue with others that think being here illegally is ok, because it's not. Laws are there for a reason.

    Re: melissamomof2

    That wasn't for you. I accidentally replied to you. It was for

  73. 573

    Re: Onya – SO YOU ARE SAYING THAT EVER IMMIGRANT IS ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE? ARE YOU SERIOUS? MOST ARE TOO SCARED TO GET HELP IN FEAR OF GETTING SENT BACK SO THEY WORK FOR VERY LOW WAGES, PAY TAXES WHEN BUYING FOOD AND SUCH WHICH YOU SURELY GET SOMETHING OUT OF. SO REALLY THEY ARE PROBABLY GIVING MORE RESOURCES THEN THEY ARE GETTING. HELL, I DON'T KNOW, BUT I DO KNOW YOU SOUND LIKE A RACIST ASSHOLE!



  74. 574

    Re: jewfus – ARE YOU SERIOUSLY TRYING TO SAY WE DIDN'T STEAL THIS LAND? REALLY? REALLY? BECAUSE MAN, THAT WOULD BE SOOO LAME. WE STOLE IT STRAIGHT UP! PLEASE READ SOME HISTORY BOOKS!

    577

    If they're here legally then they have nothing to worry about. I love how hispanics want to change the law to suit them. They don't want to go through the legal channels. I'm sorry but the law is the law! WAIT IN LINE LIKE EVRYONE ELSE!!!!!!!



  78. 578

    Re: PreTTy*n*PinK – Bro, I said racial slurs. I've never used any racial slurs on this website. The fact that you think my opinions are racist is an entirely different issue.

    Re: stephie86 – I COULDN'T AGREE WITH YOU MORE!!!



  80. 580

    @Kateed whateverthefuckyournameis

    Actually, you see, I know a lot about history as it is one of my majors. The truth is (and I'm not saying this is a positive aspect of our history) the Natives did not own the land, they had absolutely no concept of owning land. The vast majority were nomads who followed their food, especially the plains Indians. So, we did not "steal" anything, not in the way you're suggesting. The history of the world up until modern times is filled with people taking land from others through some form of war. It is how the world worked.

    And, if you want to be taken seriously and seem intelligent, lose the all caps and words like "lame" and "man."



  81. 581

    Re: JDicaprio – Umm.. you're wrong. I would clean houses or hotel rooms if i had to. I know a lot of men and women who would have no problem working construction or working in landscaping/gardening. What you're saying is BS. Americans aren't just lazy like people say. We will work hard for a decent wage. And some of us would be even more willing to do jobs that are not so appealing now that our economy is what it is. A real man (or woman) will do what needs to be done to support a family. To say that illegal immigrants are the only ones who would do that is a slap in the face to all of the hard working Americans and LEGAL immigrants who struggle on a daily basis to do the right thing. Shame on you.



  82. 582

    Re: JDicaprio – and P.S… my "white" mother cleaned houses for years for supplemental income to raise four kids. She had business cards and everything… called herself Katie the Cleaning Lady. She worked her ass off. And she's not ILLEGAL by any strech of the imagination. So your brain- dead argument holds no water. And have you read the bill? It's not based on "color". There are a lot of things that can tip someone off that you're illegal. Like being pulled over with no driver's licence and not being able to speak fluent english. And you can only be questioned if you've been stopped for a valid reason. i.e. a routine traffic stop, broken tail light, domestic disturbance, etc. Nobody is stopping anyone just because they looke "mexican". You've been fed these lies and your problem is that you're gullible enought to believe them. Educate yourself. Read the bill. I am so sick of being called racist by brain dead idiots. Use common sense. If you can muster up any at all.



  83. 583

    Re: JDicaprio – And yes, we do need to take responisibility for this mess. We do have a broken system that needs to be fixed. We do need to fine companies that hire illegals. These are all things that the Feds should have been doing from the get go. I don't see how being pissed at states who try to take things into their own hands makes any sense. This is a mirror immage of Federal laws that are already on the books but not enforced. And yes America is a country of immigrants. I myself come from immigrants. Nobody has anything agains immigrants. We have historically been a country that embraces immigrants. It's ILLEGAL immigration that people have problem with. So you, my firend, are the one who needs to know your history.



  84. 584

    Re: J_mo – You're a moron. any idiot knows that this is nothing like Nazi Germany. Get back to me when we start sending illegals to the gas chamber, smart one. See people like you have no actual valid arguments so you have to make some bullshit comparison to Hitler and try to pass it off as fact. Most of us aren't stupid enough to believe these things so save your breath. Or in this case a few key strokes.



  85. 585

    Re: JJ1313 – Exactly. my great-grandmother wasn't even allowed to speak Italian once she got here. it was forbidden by her father. He was proud to be here and proud of the work it took to become a US citizen. He had respect and reverence for this country. That's what's lacking in some immigrants these days.



  86. 586

    Re: Ellie9 – Give me an example of how this law violates human rights?



  87. 587

    Your page states,"The law requires police to check immigration status of anyone they think is in the country illegally with violators facing up to six months in jail, $2,500 in fines, and federal deportation."

    WRONG!!!! READ THE LAW BEFORE YOU PUT IGNORANT FALSE STATEMENTS!!!



  88. 588

    Re: Ellie9 – ILLEGAL IMMIGRATIONS? LOL. HOW ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. AND WHAT INTERNATIONAL LAW IS THIS IN VIOLATION OF? THIS LAW MIRRORS OUR FEDERAL LAW. NOBODY CRIED ABOUT IT UNTIL SOMEONE TRIED TO ENFORCE IT. IF THE FEDS WERE DOING THEIR JOB THEN NONE OF THIS SHIT WOULD BE HAPPENING.



  89. 589

    Re: shittin_condoms – Ok well hating anyone is not really very productive. When you say things like that, idiots feel justified in calling us racist. Hating immigrants are not what most of us are about. Not appreciating immigrating ILLEGALLY is more like it. Our country has always welcomed immigrants with open arms. We just expect that it be done the right way.



  90. 590

    Re: Kevin1243 – It's a fact that most of the illegals in AZ are coming over the border illegally. If we were next to an Asian country then it would be Asians. It's a fact. We didn't ask for it. And I would expect that there are Asians and other illegals in AZ as well. So, if they don't have a driver's liscence or speak english, then I would expect that they would be questioned as well. It isn't about the color of someone's skin. It's only people like you who are claiming it is. Again, try reading the bill and using some common sense. FUCK!



  91. 591

    Re: morenaflaka72 – Like I said to some other ignorant fool. You know damn well that this is nothing like Nazi Germany. Again… when we start sending illegals to the gas chamber, you let me know. Until then, shut the fuck up.



  92. 592

    Re: FiveStarFreddie – people can smell however they want…as long as they're smelling up the place legally. sane people who are for the bill aren't hating on immigrants. we just want people to do it the right way. i just want people to do it the way my mexican and italian ancestors did it. i don't see anything wrong with that.



  93. 593

    Re: AvaLuna826 – Honestly this does resemble the first steps of the nazis.. America loves to hate what they consider foreign .. We share a border with a country in need of aid … of course this would happen especially because we have commodities that are luxury to them… All these people want is the same chance our forefathers had .. a chance to escape their conditions… And these people although not born here work hard and have an urge to make something better for their children.. So why should we punish them? They do pay taxes.. they own houses.. they use public places.. they go shopping.. they in no way are different from any legal citizens.. They cant simply get up and leave because their life has been rooted into america .. and alot say they leave without paying for services.. your wrong they have morals and standards just like any other.. they will pay because they want to continue to live here and act like whole hearted americans!! To me their no different.. a paper can not tell me wether a person deserves to reside her.. This is life changing and Racist .. Im tired of it and wont stand for it because it contradicts everything America represents !



  94. 594

    Re: Sophie17

    just stop, please. this isn't racist. we cannot keep footing the bill for their medical issues anymore. We can't keep educating their children. not enough of them are paying taxes and putting money back in the system.

    how about you give YOUR house to the illegals and YOUR money for when they are sick. why not sponsor an illegal family and see how quickly your drained of all money you may have.

    This is nothing like nazi germany and it is an INSULT to all suffered at the hands of the nazis for you to say something like that. get a clue.



  95. 595

    Re: lorisa – That's what the media wants you to believe. It's pretty much illegals, mexico, young adults of latino heritage that have been lied to and don't know any better, the obama admin and hollywood that have a problem with it. And most of them, including Obama himself, made the decidison that it was discriminatory without even reading the bill. it's ludicrous.

    Re: maira0912 – OK. HERE'S WHY YOU'RE AN IDIOT. I LIVE IN SALINAS, CA. IT'S CONSIDERED THE "SALAD BOWL" BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY PRODUCE CROPS AROUND HERE. IT DOESN'T EVEN REACH 100 DEGREES HERE EXCEPT ON VERY RARE OCCASIONS. ARIZONA IS A DIFFERENT STORY, I KNOW. MY FATHER IS A MEXICAN AMERICAN (BORN HERE!!). HE WORKED IN THE FIELDS WHEN HE WAS LITTLE. MY SWISS STEP MOTHER CAME HER AND WORKED IN THE FIELDS. SO DON'T ACT LIKE IT'S JUST ILLEGAL MEXICANS WHO WANT TO DO THE HARD STUFF. NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT ALL THE FUCKEN FIELDS GOT PICKED BEFORE THE MEXICANS DID IT. ALSO, THE US DIDN'T STEAL SHIT. WE FOUGHT A BATTLE AND WON THE LAND. NOT ONLY THAT BUT WE THEN PAID 15 MILLION FOR ARIZONA ALONE. 25 MILLION FOR SURROUNDING STATES. PLUS WE FORGAVE MAJOR DEBT THAT MEXICO OWED US. AND IF MEXICO STILL OWNED THE LAND IT WOULD BE GOVERNED BY THE SAME LAWS THAT MEXICO IS CURRENTLY, THEREFORE IT WOULD BE A PIECE OF SHIT PLACE TO LIVE. DO YOU NOT THINK THAT MEXICANS WOULD THEN IMMIGRATE TO OTHER US STATES THE WAY THEY DO TO AZ, CA AND TX? THIS IS SUCK A TIRED ARGUMENT. NOT ONLY THAT BUT IT'S LIES.



  98. 598

    Re: jewfus – I would glady give someone money if they needed it.. if someone dieing.. lets say of cancer dont we donate! Whats money compared with life? Nothing.. This bill is racist because it does not only target illegal it targets all whom look or have mexican descent.. This is why it should not be passed !! And fyi that is what Hiltler did with the jews all the jews.. he targeted all whom looked jews regardless of their germany blood.



  99. 599

    The only reason this" law" exists is because of illegal immigrants from MEXICO!
    NO WHERE ELSE!
    Law officials can harass at their OWN DISCRETION those they think may be illegal.
    Given this-it won't be the blue-eyed blonds among those harassed!
    LATINOS WILL BE TARGETED! THAT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE IN THE USA!
    The Republicans-aka party of BIGOTS, these batshit TEABAGGERS and the NRA
    are running THIS fucking show!
    WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING TO MY COUNTRY!
    Jan Brewer and her backwardness is NOT the answer to this monumental problem!
    Can't believe I'm saying this but GWB had this right!
