Maroon 5 Protests Arizona Immigration Law, Will Not Tour There Either!

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikInspirationAdam Levine

Amazing! Glad to see they're against such a RIDICULOUS law!

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine has revealed that when he and the band start touring their new album, Hands All Over, they WILL be joining the long list of talent that is boycotting Arizona due to the new immigration laws!

He says:

"I did an interview in Tucson on the radio. [The host] asked about playing there. I said it was a really difficult decision to make because we have fans out there that are being penalized essentially by us not playing, so it's a really difficult decision to make. It really kind of comes down to what feels right, and it really didn't feel right to play there and reward Arizona for what we thought was a really bad decision. We're just citizens. It's always good to look at everything that we're talking about, discussing, debating or standing up for as an issue, not to grandstand, necessarily, our beliefs, but kind of just follow our hearts, as cheesy as that sounds, and say, 'Look, this is how I feel, so I'm going to do this.'"

It's not cheesy! Like you said, it's the right thing to do, and your support is very much appreciated, bb!

Thanks for taking a stand!

    Who cares about Maroon 5? Not much of a loss.



  2. 2

    Perez,
    you dont know anything about those laws there not made to discriminate or be hurtful there to kick the people who are here ILLEGALLY out of our country idk why you think its okay for people to be here illegally when we have to support there illegitament kids and they take our jobs its not racism its being smart and im glad more states are makin laws like this so maybe America can get back to what our ancestors founded it on morals.



  3. 3

    LOVE MAROON 5….N NOW EVEN MORE SO!!!: p



  4. 4

    I flew over Arizona on my UFO and gave them the finger.



  5. 5

    Yes take a stand for criminals. Good idea.



  6. 6

    GOOD RIDDANCE!



  7. 7

    Have you read the law? Or are you like the rest of the goverment that hasn't?
    www.azleg.gov/legtext/49leg/2r/bills/sb1070s.pdf This law was written to force the US Goverment to do what it is required by law to do. Protect the borders! Phoenix Is the #2 kidnap captial of the world! Somebody's got to do something!



  8. 8

    Stupid! i'm for the law and hope we get the same in TX. maroon 5 won't be missed i'm sure. lol



  9. 9

    this is so dumb, THEY'RE CALLED ILLEGALS FOR A REASON



  10. 10

    Good God, that bill is paying off in spades! Shitty bands are ditching the state faster than illegals!! WAY TO GO ARIZONA!!



  11. 11

    What part of ILLEGAL is it so hard for you, Perez, to understand? Why should the American tax payer have to pay welfare, foodstamps, education and health care for ILLEGALS who pay NO tax money into our system? ILLEGALS bring drugs, gangs and human trafficing into America. Arizona is trying to inforce the Federal Law that this administration refuses to inforce. Maybe you should actually read the law before you or Maroon 5 make ridiculous protest. Though Perez you're probably here illegally anyway.



  12. 12

    Hey Mario… Maybe if you stopped worrying about "whatersherface" and Zac Efron, who will never EVER even think twice of you, and start reading laws like this before you start spreading your opinion everywhere when you're not even educated in the matter.

    Maybe if you watched the news sometime, you would know that the Mexican immigration law if 5000 times worse than America's immigration law. Mexico's law is that anyone who is seen trespassing over Mexico's borders, are subject to be shot right there at the scene.



  13. 13

    Nice gesture, but doubt it will have an effect



  14. 14

    The new law ROCKS!!! Maroon 5 sure as hell doesn't. Not much of a loss.



  15. 15

    good for him!



  16. 16

    Re: dancer47 – lol, take your jobs. I love it when people say that. Yep, they're here just to piss you off, not trying to better their lives or anything. So, I guess you pick fucking fruit for a living then? Illegally, right, so you get paid pennies a day? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP RIGHT NOW. SOUNDS FUCKING GREAT.



  17. 17

    Thumbs up! :D



  18. 18

    HAHA Maroon 5 SUCKS, every time I hear his droning/whining voice on the radio I immediately turn it off. No talent, no intelligence, and he isn't even attractive– 3 strikes and he's out.
    By the way, it is RACIST to oppose Arizona's immigration law. Why should illegal immigrants, the majority of whom come from Mexico simply because of its geographical proximity, be allowed to cut in front of the immigration line? All other ethnicities/nationalities must wait in line, but Mexicans get a free pass? Racism in its purest form. Also, there is no constitutional basis for a lawsuit against Arizona (hilariously, Obama was a Constitutional Law professor– this lawsuit will get laughed out of court and Obama will become even more of a joke). If you so much as run a stop sign, the police have cause to pull you over and ask for ID. If the police suspect that you're armed, they can frisk you. If the police suspect that contraband is in your car, they can search your car. This is all long-standing law. Arizona's law is LESS INTRUSIVE than settled uncontroversial law.



  19. 19

    OH PLEASE.
    ARIZONA IS 100% right
    all these celebs are just going with the hype, just as Obama is. Whatever's popular, they're with it.

    no one gives a fuck about maroon 5 anyway



  20. 20

    Good for them- not that anyone would care about Maroon 5.



  21. 21

    God forbid states & citizens protect themselves, their homes, and their environment from ILLEGAL CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, Perez. There's nothing wrong with LEGAL IMMIGRATION, but ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE CRIMINALS AND COMMITTING ILLEGAL ACTS THAT ARE RECOGNIZED AS ILLEGAL BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.



  22. 22

    *yawns* ok thanks for the update



  23. 23

    SO glad i can count Maroon 5 OFF my list of bands i will ever support again.



  24. 24

    okay im sorry this is bull shit. Arizona is not the only state with this law in the UNited States last time I checked three other states also have this same law. So Adam are you going to punish Mexico for building there new wall?



  25. 25

    Re: rickbo52 – i totally agree with you!



  26. 26

    wow your a dumbass its not a stupid law.
    WE ARE A COUNTRY OF LAWS YOU DUMB ASS MOFO



  27. 27

    *As soon as Arizona is done fixing the immigration problem THEMSELVES, I should move there to avoid all this celebrity douchebaggery* P.S. No one cares about you, Maroon 5. Try to stay relevant another way, ok?



  28. 28

    Deleteing all their songs and throwing out all their CD's. FUCK YOU MORON 5!



  29. 29

    Its obvious that you do not know how to read. If you did know how to read, you would have read the law. I say go for it AZ and all the other states thinking of doing the same thing. Illegal is a crime. People who commit crimes do not get rewarded. Illegal is breaking the law. Its breaking the National Law and the Government is breaking the law by not inforcing it. Can not wait until November elections. Get rid of as many idiots as we can both house and the Senate. Then clean the White house of idiots in 2012.



  30. 30

    Welcome back Perez. You know there is a huge difference in the way you write and whoever does it for you on the weekends. Different heart. You can't fake yours.



  31. 31

    Mario, You just support this law because your mother is probably illegal.



  32. 32

    Re: dancer47
    Founded on morals of killing and enslaving people and cornering and killing them off of their own land. Morality to the highest power you say?



  33. 33

    Re: Oogabooga
    whahahaha lmao! that was funny. Maroon 5 is pretty much not relevant anymore.



  34. 34

    Congratulations Arizona! You have a great immigration law & no Maroon 5. Sounds good to me.



  35. 35

    baaah
    i knew i didn't like john mccain for a reason
    and that old bitch is just annoying

    not saying EVERYONE in arizona is racist, OF COURSE NOT
    but that state refuses to acknowledge MLK DAY
    LIKE WTF!!



  36. 36

    how many celebs actually know what the law actually consists of besides all that "racial profiling" stuff
    hmmm….



  37. 37

    the AZ law is the same as the fed law. People are only mad because enforcement will actually increase @ the state level.

    I wonder. where will these bands tour when the other 40 states planning to enact the same law do so ? This is happening all over the US in the 2011 legislative session. Can't wait to see what happens then.



  38. 38

    Geez what's up with the hate towards the band?
    You should dislike their choice and opinion, not them.



  39. 39

    Ok, perhaps he should move to mexico then.



  40. 40

    The law is sound, and people who are here illegally, no matter what their reason or motivation, should be in their own country, wherever that may be. It is insulting to all of us who have gone through the proper channels to live in this country and become citizens of the US when people think they can sneak in and just squat here. Deport them all.



  41. 41

    Re: JessicaTandyWasMyHero
    ALL nations were initially founded via some sort of conquest, so don't go there.
    As far as morals, yes, there is an overarching judeo-christian ethic theme to the US, whether people like it or not. It's in nearly every document. People forget this when they quote the separation clause which has nothing to do with separation, rather; everything to do with endorsements. Anyway, fuck maroon 5.



  42. 42

    Re: Bethany Willis
    If you haven't been here, hold your tongue! Like totally ?!?



  43. 43

    Yeah, way to take a stand against people breaking the law! Well Done.
    Go to www.US4AZ.com to support Arizona and get the aliens out of our country.



  44. 44

    All of you who approve this law clearly have no idea what illegal immigrants (the majority of whom are Mexican, as many of you have pointed out) contribute to the United States economy. The fact is that Americans don't want to pick their own fruits and veggies out of the field, garden their own lawns or landscapes, or clean their own bathrooms. It is complete BS to say that illegals are taking jobs…YOU DON'T WANT THEIR JOBS…THAT'S WHY THEY HAVE THEM. This economy will fall apart even further without illegals. You all feel so high and mighty stating, "it's ILLEGAL." Well, so is speeding in your car. So is smoking pot or underage drinking or any number of things the majority of you most likely take part in or have taken part in. My point? Who cares if it's illegal. We need them.

    P.S. No, I'm not Mexican or illegal. Born and raised in the U.S. I just recognize the fact that borders are retarded and we need to get over ourselves.



  45. 45

    Oh no, the world as Arizona knows it is going to end because shitty Maroon 5 won't tour there. Well guess what Perez and Hollywood, this law is here and a large majority of the country support it, so get used to it already!!! These people are so stupid. If immigration costs cut into their pockets in even the slightest way I'm sure they wouldn't parade around like fools anymore. To Arizona and other states brave enough to stand up to political correctness, I commend you!



  46. 46

    then ill protest maroon 5….oh wait i dont even like them anyway. When are we going to wake up and take our country back!!!!!



  47. 47

    Re: JessicaTandyWasMyHero
    And which empire wasn't? You cant hold people accountable for something that happened 200 years ago.

  48. PH23 says – reply to this


    48

    A major reason why people take a stand for illegal immigrants is because of the way people treat them in the first place, ok so they come to this country illegal but don't go and call them criminals, choose your words wisely, ever immigrant has a story, just like most of your ancestors did, and BELIEVE ME UNLESS YOUR NATIVE AMERICAN BY BLOOD, the majority of you forget where you came from. And by the way most immigrants most definitely pay taxes, most companies give them fake social securities but in the end they don't get any tax money back. Call them all the bad names you want, but don't ignore the positive things they do for your country. BOTTOME LINE THE LAW IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Its time to accept it!



  49. 49

    Good for them. Hate is NOT a family value!



  50. 50

    Re: sleezy*e
    Yes illegal immigrants pick our fruit for pennies, then they cost the state of California $10.5 Billion a year for the free health care, education and housing they receive. Well "free" isn't an accurate word because the bill is paid by American tax payers. The problem is not LEGAL immigrants, it's ILLEGAL immigrants who don't pay taxes and suck the resources out of every area they populate. No wonder they're happy picking fruit for pennies, because their health care, housing, education, food, etc. is free… go the fuck home.



  51. 51

    Re: AniAnnika
    The "they pick our fruit for pennies" bullshit is tired. The reality is that illegal immigrants cost the state of California $10.5 billion dollars annually (free health care, education, housing, incarceration, etc.) and that number is estimate from 1994. Yes, the pick fucking fruit for a minimum income and they love it because they don't have to pay for medical services, don't have to pay to send their kids to school, etc… well they don't have to pay the $10.5 billion dollar bill, the legal citizens of California pay for it with taxes. Go the fuck home.

    Re: sjmarcus2005 – Good someone with a brain, FFS, the biggest thing NO ONE acknowledges about the law, is for this law to be enacted the illegal immigrant has to be involved in something ELSE illegal, meaning if they don't do anything thats illegal this law DOESN"T AFFECT THEM. Stop being fucking ignorant and learn to read, jesus christ. And Thank you for pointing out despite them giving us much to our economy, by taking the worthless jobs, they also suck up at least twice what they give to us with all the free stuff they're given. Only ignorant people could oppose this law its a fact, not opinion.



  53. 53

    By reading the comments here i now concluded the American People is as sick as german people were in the 1930's



  54. 54

    Re: dancer47 – wow. u really think this country was founded on morals? we took land by force from Native Americans! And there wouldnt be illegal immigrants if perhaps the US didnt make the test to get into this country so hard. Ive seen a sample of the test and I can honestly say I would fail it and I am an American citizen. And there are plenty of jobs out there if people would actually look for them. Its a bs law.



  55. 55

    No one is buying tickets for their tour, so these ass hats try to stir up some controversy by jumping on the "I hate AZ" bandwagon… as if anyone gives a shit about Adam Levine or his douchey music.

    It's pretty simple… LEGAL immigrants are ok, ILLEGAL immigrants are not ok. The reason why is that illegal immigrants cost the state of California $10.5 billion a year with the free health care, education & housing they receive.

    That's the cost of supporting illegal immigrants for one year, in one state. When you consider the free resources they leech from every other state… Arizona, Florida, Texas, etc… they're breaking the backs of every legal tax paying family in this country that is struggling to make ends meet.

    I suggest they go home, fill out the proper documentation, and get in line with every other person that immigrated to this country legally.



  56. 56

    Blame the companies that hire the immigrants, and do nothing to help them earn their citizenship. They save on healthcare costs, and the wages they earn. We know who the majority of those males are, white males. Most of the jobs that they take benefit us, such as picking fruit in the fields . . . Many Americans are not educated, but they sure wouldn't take a gig like that. If we were out there to fill the void, there wouldn't be the room in this country or the opportunity for all those people to come here.



  57. 57

    Re: PH23 – AMEN! finally, a post from someone who's definitely not a poorly educated person.



  58. 58

    "Take our country back"? Are you joking? Over half of the United States (including AZ) belonged to Spain until 150 years ago. You are the same people who are like, "Speak American if you're going to live in America!" As you like to conveniently forget, the first people here didn't speak English. We force-fed that crap on them. Our history is so much more complex than many of you ignorant and divisive people try to make it out to be. The one thing that makes the U.S. beautiful is our diversity.

    We're not taking anything back by supporting and enforcing racial profiling. We're simply creating a hostile environment for anyone who possibly looks illegal. It's the same for all people who look potentially Muslim at airports - extra frisking, dirty looks, and paranoia. What a terrible and hostile world we live in right now. When did the well-being of the majority of living things become so much less important than pure selfishness? Human beings are utterly disgusting creatures.



  59. 59

    Okay, to all of the people who are so againts immigrants you obviously don't know much of American history. This country was made up of ALL immigrants. All of our ancestors are immigrants who came here for new opportunities, so not much has changed. They are doing the most energy draining jobs out there and getting paid insufficient money and none of you would ever do half of the hard jobs they do so they aren't really taking YOUR jobs. They are helping the economy. - Just making a very important point.

    I love how this brings out the racist hicks and the republicans on a GAY man's site. Hmm. Do all of your realize that people aren't protesting the law due to border security but because it gives the officials a right to racially profile others? I'm going to laugh when this law backfires and some tan, hispanic looking American gets arrested for not carrying his papers. Does something need to be done about immigration? Of course. Giving citizenship is not right - before someone calls me an illegal supporter. Deport all illegal criminals? Of course!! But what is wrong with creating some temporary guest worker program?! There's no good argument against a guest worker program.



  61. 61

    Re: AniAnnika – You are a moron. You try to use an example of if you smoke pot or if ya speed cause they are illegal but don't add 1+1 to get to the point that if you smoke pot or speed, you get ticketed and/or put in jail… because you broke the law. So even using your own examples, people that break the law get penalized… so if people are entering the country are coming in illegally, they should be arrested/deported because its illegal… so simple.

    For those that haven't read the law, which looks to be only a few because most here seem to be on top of things and know that the law is just, go read it… then go read the federal law. When you read the federal law, you will see that the fed's actually do have the power to racially profile people… the Arizona law implicitly states that officers can not profile.. if they do they can face fines and jail time.



  62. 62

    Perez, I am a true follower.. But I have to say most bands or performers are taking this way too far. I didn't vote for SB 1070, and all the people I know didn't either. It was all old people who are John McCain diehards, or farmers, or rednecks. Why punish the most liberal part of Arizona, their youth? Do you think the politicians in Phoenix care if a concert or two doesn't happen? Hell, they save money on police to make up for revenue.. Artists "TAKING A STAND" doesnt do anything but piss off and with potential to loose fans.. So don't hate on AZ..



  63. 63

    Re: Nathiestx – Doing that just because of this? Haaaaa loser.



  64. 64

    Meh, really in the LONG TERM Maroon 5's decision to not play at arizona doesn't really bare a burden to the state in the context of their GDP. Can't wait till this bill becomes law…only 5 more days! Love it since some states are wanting to take similar measures. According to reports illegals are already leaving the state…sure the solvent state of california will take them in with open arms.



  65. 65

    How many of you live in Arizona or even close to the border. Anyone who protests this law should move to Nogales or Douglas for a month see what its like.

  66. maude says – reply to this


    66

    Until you actually READ the law, shut the fuck up, Perez. You and all these other protesting celebrities are pathetic…. Just going with what is popular right now, along with our freaking President. I am an Arizona resident and I support this law 100%.



  67. 67

    Re: JessicaTandyWasMyHero – Then don't fucking live here!

    I love immigration laws and I hate Maroon 5. I should just move to Arizona!

    I fucking knew Zooby would be here ranting about homosexuals again. Zooby, what the fuck is your obsession with gays? Do you see that the overwhelming majority of the comments here are people fed up with illegals? Fuck illegals! Fuck Maroon 5! Fuck Barry Obama! Fuck Eric Holder! Fuck Janet Napolitano! Fuck Hillary Clinton! Fuck Mario! Fuck every single person who supports criminals! And to all the people who support the good people of AZ in their quest to deport every single foreign criminal, may God bless you :)
    PS This shit is happening July 29th. Enjoy, you filthy fucking lawbreakers!

    Re: zooby – You're dumb. People in Europe get asked for papers all the time. When I was there, A police officer questioned me and asked for my passport.

    People seem to be under the impression that a cop is just going to pull someone over for being a different color..Uhh no. They will only be asked for papers if they are pulled over for doing something wrong. Funny enough, STATISTICALLY most violent gangs are made up of Hispanics..In the end, If a cop ask you for papers..It takes a whole 2 seconds to pull them out and show them. Cops ask for proof of insurance all the time. Psh off. Most Americans DO NOT have a problem with people coming over here..IF ITS DONE LEGALLY. If they come over here illegally. That is a crime. Making them a criminal. 1 out of 4 doctors are immigrants. No one has a problem with immigration. It's just people coming over here legally..If your in a different country and want to come here..By all means go for it. Just go through the legal necessary steps to do so.



  72. 72

    Re: Oogabooga – like it…go away shitty bands…read the bill if u can…

    Re: Eliazar Rodriguez – shut up taco bender…i wonder how many of ur family is illegal!!



  74. 74

    Re: JustSomeGuy. Haha, you're the moron. I never said illegals who are caught shouldn't be deported. I said I am against racial profiling. Racial profiling means checking people simply because they look like they *might* be illegal. My point is that cops (who, by the way, are mostly corrupt people with inferiority complexes anyway) shouldn't be allowed to check someone out because they look like they *might* be the type of person to do something illegal. If you look like you might be a pot-smoker, whether or not you are, you shouldn't be randomly stopped by a cop to check it out without incentive other than your looks.



  75. 75

    Arizona's law is disgraceful and won't work. Not to mention the fact that it's illegal! All you pseudo-legal scholars out there who haven't even been to law school let alone practiced law should shut your faces before lecturing others on what's legal and what's not. Way to go Maroon 5 - thank you for having a spine, unlike the cowardly, ignorant, hateful legislators in the state of Arizona.



  76. 76

    yeah. ouch. no one cares, yay az! hopefully more states will follow!



  77. 77

    Re: AniAnnika – Belonged to Mexico, not Spain.



  78. 78

    Recent polls of Californians show the majority of peeps want to kick these fuckers out, too. We ain't gonna let AZ have all the fun. Curiously, the Hispanics/Latinos are not in that majority. I guess the Hispanics/Latinos know a disproportionate amount of illegals and they are going to be sad to see their illegal amigos get deported. Did someone say McDonalds cuz I'm lovin it :)
    Like most things in life: you're either with us or against us. Thanks, Maroon 5, for letting Americans know that you are our enemy.



  79. 79

    P.S. Any of you who believe this law doesn't allow profiling needs to read again: true, one must be doing something illegal…BUT, the law makes not carrying proper identification illegal. Therefore, if a person is walking down the street and a cop asks to see their identification and they don't have any on them, they are doing something illegal and the cop then has the right to harass them further. Cops therefore can walk down the street, ask anyone for an ID, and if they don't have it, they automatically have further cause to look into their status. Do you seriously think they're going to ask a white dude for his ID? Hell no. They're going to ask Latinos.

    Re: sleezy*e – Listen bitch, I know people who aren't fucking illegal immigrants that have lost their jobs in the past year who would do ANYTHING for a couple pennies to feed their family. Including wiping your ass. So don't go saying how illegals are the only one willing to do shitty work for close to nothing to BETTER themselves. Someone of us natural born citizens aren't as lucky to have easy, good paying jobs. You can't find jobs out there right now. So go fuck yourself, they are eating up jobs that are deserved by people who AREN'T breaking the law. For pennies or not. A little SOMETHING is better than absolutely nothing.



  82. 82

    Re: the squirrel. Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821. How the hell do you think they speak Spanish? California became a part of the U.S. in 1850. That's less than 30 years of being a part of Mexico independently from Spain. Read your history.

    Re: AniAnnika – Agreed … it's the racial profiling .. not the border security. When will these white trash hicks listen?



  84. 84

    Re: AniAnnika – I beg to differ asshole. Try moving to a lower class region where finding a job is like finding a damn needle in a haystack. Don't fucking judge people who are defending our countries morals. You can think what you want, but I know, for a fact, there are people who want those jobs who aren't illegals. You make me sick, have some pride.



  85. 85

    Re: AniAnnika – You clearly don't know what you're talking about. As someone who has neighbours who grow fruit, I know that they hire people the LEGAL way. They hire their workers from Mexico to come stay at their farm during the fruit picking season - but only AFTER they help them get temporary work vistas for that duration.

    I do, however, agree with you that there are a lot of "illegals" who want to work. But they should go through the proper channels to make it LEGAL for them to work. That way they can rightfully get benefits and not get fucked around with less than minimum wage (in a lot of cases). It's really a win-win situation to get a visa. Anyone who doesn't want to get one is either lazy or knows they won't get approved for one (and it's pretty easy to get a visa) - so if the USA won't legally take them - then they really have no right to leach off of the legal taxpayers.

    Anyone who wants to live in a country that is not their birth country should ALWAYS go the legal route. Living somewhere illegally is against the law and should not be allowed. It's just sad that it's taken them this long to enforce it more strictly - and that there are so many ignorant and uninformed people out there opposed to it.



  86. 86

    Also, as a side not and an FYI, I worked at one of the jails in arizona. And I got to see each and every inmates file. I'd say at least 45% of the criminals there were also illegally in this country. There for all different kinds of crimes, mostly drugs, robbery, and battery. So I have a pretty good idea of how this is going to affect our state. Instead of my tax money going to housing criminals from other countries, maybe it could be used to fund education. Our schools are being closed, 50+ kids in a classroom, kids having to bring their own toilet paper to school, no free lunches for low class families. But instead, it's being used on medical care, and housing, and food for people who don't pay taxes cause they're not even residents of this country and work under the table.

    Re: mydeargrace – Plenty of jobs? Really? Well I'm glad that's the case where you live. For people with no college degree, it's NOT easy to find something. If you're employed consider yourself lucky. You weren't the one working for 20+ years to get laid off, with 4 children to take care of. Applied all over the place, sent resumes out everywhere, searched job listings high and low all to hear NOTHING back. I'd personally take any job I could get right now, for pennies and all. I have to pay for my health care, my food, and my children's education. I'm not getting that all for free like illegals are. Do you understand WHY I think you're fucking bullshit???

    I worked my ass off for 60 hrs a week from 16-49 years of age. And I paid taxes on every $ I earned. I then became disabled. I get under $1000 per. month in SSI because all the resources used on illegals. I go to the crisis center food bank every now and then. They give me about 1/2 a bag of food. Then I see a woman who speaks no English walk out with several bags and climb into a Cadillac Escalade. They cant speak English but they sure can work the system.
    So I may become homeless while our government houses them.

    Your ignorant pride is sad. Mexico USED to be a decent country. It could still be if the corrupt system was torn down and rebuilt FOR the people. If all these protesters in AZ would go TO Mexico and demand social reform THERE-I might have some sympathy. I understand that you want to stand up for "your people" as do I but stop spouting the "US belonged to Mexico" shit. It's old and tired. Much like the arguments that are heard about this issue. PLEASE move to Tucson (where I live) and tell me it's NOT a problem. The sense of entitlement the illegals have is fucking crazy. You can't even tell them to quiet their kids in a store without being called a racist or sell-out-always in Spanish which I understand. I'm Mexican-American, 4th generation, college-educated and I'm SO sick of being lumped into the "Anti-1070" crowd because I'm brown. Fuck that! I have NO problem showing my ID if I get pulled over-whats the big fucking deal??? The only American people against this law are-A)-people w/illegals in their homes or B)-know-nothings who DON'T even live near the border or deal with daily crime, kidnappings, drug deals gone wrong, rape trees found in the desert or the hundreds of dead bodies that litter our backyards. PLEASE come live here for a few months if you can. Oh never mind, you're most likely illegal. And if you are-AZ is gonna getcha!!!!!
    As for Moron 5-they can kiss my sweet, brown, smooth, SB 1070-loving ass.
    Paz.

    I love how people talk about illegals stealing jobs and stuff, but let's be honest: the jobs they have are the ones that no one wants! I don't see any of you bending over backwards to clean house, lawns or do half of these low paying ass jobs that alot of them will take on just to make a better life for themselves! Instead of worrying about some of these illegals, we need to start exiling all the stupid ass AMERICANS that are committing crimes and not doing shit to better themselves or the community. But I guess them fucking up the country is fine because they are legal.
