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

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikInspirationAdam Levine

wenn5509097jb.jpg

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!

    Re: ricketycricks – Why is that??? I can respect others opinons even though I don't agree with them I respect them but when you make stupid,racist, ignorant and hateful comments like that Eldridge fool I call them for what they are: stupid,ignorant and racist. He is a LIAR and has been caught in sooo many lies so it makes him look more stupid and desperate.

    How can you violate someones civil rights when they aren't a U.S. citizen to begin with?!?!?!?!?!?? YOU CAN'T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL, PERIOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    !



  9. 409

    Re: haisinni – LOL you don't deny that illegals talk bad on black people. Instead you try to excuse it by saying that white people talk bad on non-white people. LOL too funny! This land is not Mexico's land. This land is our land, American's land. Take a history class and learn about wars and how the spoils of wars go to the victors. I can't talk any more shit here but I will leave you with this: in 4 days, illegals are getting deported. By the end of Barry's term, ALL THE FUCKING ILLEGALS WILL BE GONE. God bless America

    Don’t like ARIZONA’S new immigration law? Fine. We’ll adopt Mexico’s immigration policies instead, OK?

    Let’s take a look at Mexico’s immigration policy. For instance, did you know that:

    Mexico deports more illegal aliens that the U.S. annually
    Under Mexican law, it is a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico
    Or that immigrants must –

    Have the means to sustain themselves economically;
    Not be burdens on society;
    Be of economic and social benefit to society;
    Be of good character and have no criminal records; and
    Contribute to the general well being of the nation.
    Mexico’s immigration policies also ensure that –

    Authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
    Foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
    Foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
    Foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
    Foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
    Those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.”

    Re: haisinni

    Your people must be soooooo proud of you.
    Such a fine example of what a mexican can be.
    You can swear.. wow…you can use vile language.. did your momma teach you that?



  12. 412

    Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

    Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)
    Immigration officials must ‘ensure’ that ‘immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance’ and for their dependents. (Article 34)

    ~



  13. 413

    Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets ‘the equilibrium of the national demographics,’ when foreigners are deemed detrimental to ‘economic or national interests,’ when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when ‘they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.’ (Article 37)
    The Secretary of Governance may ‘suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.’ (Article 38)

    ~



  14. 414

    Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:
    Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)
    A National Population Registry keeps track of ‘every single individual who comprises the population of the country,’ and verifies each individual’s identity. (Articles 85 and 86)
    A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).
    Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:

    ~



  15. 415

    Re: supersongbird – #401 LOL!!! Exactly!!! Every single post just makes him look dumber and dumber. Everytime someone replies to Eldridge saying that they agree with him I automatically know it's him.



  16. 416

    Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says,
    A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally. (Article 123)
    Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)
    Foreigners who ‘attempt against national sovereignty or security’ will be deported. (Article 126)
    Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law.
    A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)
    Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)”

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – the sarcasm was not necessary ….. I just wrote what I believed in and I am not going to lower myself to your standards and insult or trash your beliefs!



  18. 418

    How dare Mexico reprimand the United States for our treatment of illegal aliens? Copy this blog and send it to your Congressman, your Senators and your friends who think things like national sovereignty, secure borders, and protecting the lives and property of Americans is not the right thing to do in these politically correct, multicultural times.

    ~



  19. 419

    Who cares if Maroon 5 doesn't tour in Arizona? Seriously, do you think the citizens there care more about their music than the security of their state? This matters just as much as it did that Shakira didn't agree with the law!

    The citizens of Arizona needed the laws to be enforced, you know, the laws that the FEDERAL government won't enforce! I say Bravo to Arizona and I can't wait for most of the states to pass their own laws, just like Arizona's!

    By the way, evidently Maroon 5 has the same lack of intelligence that you do, since you have neither one obviously read the actual law! They even wrote it in such a way that "slow" people like you could understand!

    The illegal immigration population needs to get the HELL out of our country and stand up for their rights against their OWN corrupt government!



  20. 420

    To all the people saying "this law won't work"….. I beg to differ ! I just watched a report on CNN where they are interviewing MANY families who are fleeing AZ in fear of being deported ! IT IS WORKING !!!!!!!!!!! The report was also showing many mom and pop business closing, owned and ran by illegals ! The only problem is now other states will be over run with these ILLEGALS.. ALL 50 states need to adopt the AZ law !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  21. 421

    Aw, I see the authoritarian trolls have been working overtime this weekend. A little more shrill than their usual vomit inducing postings.
    -
    Trying to pretend that Obama's illegal immigration issue is a winner.
    Good luck on that one. LOL
    Huge mistake.
    Should have talked to W about that.
    They must really believe their own media.

    Re: frizbe – Idiot, i live in California. GG dumbass. And you HATE them? Congrats!!! You're no better than Hitler, and funny how it was the Americans who saved people from the Holocaust…

    "NO we dont hate all people of color, just the ignorant,illegal,uneducated illiterate ghetto trash or thieves who sneak in here under the fence."

    I know a lot of Americans who fit that description, but just because they were born here its ok for them to be ignorant, uneducated, illiterate ghetto trash and thieves… You make your country proud :D



  23. 423

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – LOL seriously!!!! If someone ignores me I have to follow in your footsteps and change my user name that's funny. We all know that is what you do. Come to think of it forget being bi-polar you must have a Dissociative Identity Disorder. Get help A.S.A.P!!!



  24. 424

    Re: frizbe – Youre an idiot, i was born in the USA, thats your amazing education right there, high school graduate, the great USA taught me everything i know… ohh youre calling me stupid….? ooops, should have gone to school in Mexico….



  25. 425

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – LMAO im not denying anything im not saying they dont talk shit, im simply saying you do too so dont even go there



  26. 426

    awesome! :)
    sucks cause now, thanks to Arizona..the law is coming to Texas..so im sure performers will stop performing also!..lame..but i still give them credit for standing up for what they believe..and im ALL for it cause i would have done the SAME thing!



  27. 427

    Re: AniAnnika – It's not that Americans won't take the jobs you mentioned. It's that they won't take them for $2 an hour, which a lot of illegals are willing to do. Having millions of illegals in this country whose standard of living is so low that they are willing to work for wages like that is extraordinarily detrimental to our economy, which is something that someone with even a minimal understanding of economics should understand. It's like you're saying that we should all be willing to lower our standard of living to third-world levels in order to accommodate the needs of a bunch of foreign criminals, whose welfare and well-being should be a bigger priority than the welfare and well-being of law-abiding American taxpayers.
    -
    As for your assertion that most of us break the law anyway by speeding and smoking pot—the profound difference is that people regularly get ticketed, fined, arrested and jailed for these activities. I don't see Maroon 5 refusing to play in states who jail people for drug possession. So why shouldn't the same hold true for illegal immigrants? Or is it your belief that nobody in this country should ever be punished for any crime committed by anyone under any circumstances?



  28. 428

    Now immigrant children are literally STARVING in America due to this treatment. These children were healthy and happy until this started. You trash who support this law might as well prepare for your trip to hell because that's where you are going when you die.



  29. 429

    Re: PH23 – Breaking the law makes you a criminal… and a lot of the people that come here are involved in illegal things to begin with. I don't think anyone's stance as that all of these people are horrible and don't deserve a chance but right now this country (and this state) are struggling with their own issues with jobs & crime. We don't need to start throwing other people from other countries in with that. You are forgetting these people are illegal, they don't have our constitutional rights! Do you know how Mexico treats illegals?

    If people want to "immigrate" here then they can… legally.



  30. 430

    Re: AniAnnika – They aren't allowed to check people because of the color of their skin, you are making yourself look like an idiot. Read the law. People who get pulled over/arrested and don't have proper ID are subject to a background check. I really think you should read up on it and stop listening to the ignorance before you go running your mouth. We can't even protect our own citizens without someone crying "racial profiling." It doesn't just include Mexicans either, it includes anyone who is in this country illegally.



  31. 431

    "Americans hate Blacks, Asians, Mexicans, everyone but themselves." Last time I checked Americans consisted of Blacks, Asians, Mexicans and Whites. Most people in general, who support this law do not want to separate Mexicans from Americans, they want to separate illegal’s from non illegal’s. There will be people who abuse this law because they’re racist assholes but those are few and in-between. There are bad seeds everywhere that abuse rights and laws such as the group known as the "westburo Baptist church" for example they abuse freedom speech. My grandparents had to wait years to come here from Norway legally and its nonsense that people think its ok not to wait your turn. Just because some of us agree with this law does not make us racist nor does it automatically make us white.



  32. 432

    I am seeing tons of comments on here directed towards white people. Racism is racism it comes from all races. I am half white and half Chippewa, my step grandmother is Mexican and one of my in laws in Mexican and we all agree with this law. So just because someone is Mexican doesn’t automatically make them automatically against this law either. Like I said before people who disagree with this law either don't understand it or likely are or know someone who is here illegally. My husband is a soldier and we are stationed in El Paso, TX. We see these issues first hand. I AM SO GLAD Texas is adopting this law. I’m not saying all illegal immigrants are bad people. Regardless of what kind of person they are, they are still here illegally and that’s wrong. To me it doesn’t matter if your White, Black, Asian, Mexican etc if you’re here illegally you should be deported. This law applies to ALL races not just Mexican, although admittedly in AZ the majority of illegal’s affected by this law will be Mexican.



  33. 433

    Re: itsallajoke – I just wanted to add, and I'm not sure if it's only here in TX or everywhere, I an Officer asks you for ID, weather or not you are breaking the law, you have to provide it. If you don't they can and sometimes will take you to jail for failure to ID yourself.



  34. 434

    what the hell….there goes the gardening….!



  35. 435

    Re: Mrs. VanAstorbutt

    How about the parents, who are SO concerned for their children, go back to Mexico and feed them! It's not the American tax payers responsibility to feed their families! If they can't afford to feed their children, then they shouldn't have had them!!

    Re: sleezy*e – Because I work with them JACKASS. No need to fucking google. 11 hours a fucking day. The farmhands here compete as to who will hire the most hands because they can. Who you gonna believe, the interent, or someone who has direct contact with these people on a daily basis. Let's see your bitch ass get out there with us. FUCK YOU, YOU LAZY FUCK. GET OFF THE FUCKING COMPUTER AND ACTUALLY TALK TO THESE PEOPLE.



  38. 438

    Re: LadyKryten – No that is true everywhere, however I have never actually had a cop do that or seen one do it unless the person was doing something they shouldn't.



  39. 439

    Illegals shouldnt be here, period. They scheme the system. Its not fair that I bust my ass and pay taxes to have them (and their anchor babies) mooch off the system. They can apply for a visa and wait in line like everyone else.

    Signed,

    A Mexican-AMERICAN

    First off thanks for sparing the great state of Arizona from crappy music.

    Second, WE DON'T WANT ANY ILLEGALS HERE!!!! GET THEM THE FUCK OUT!!!

    Re: haisinni
    Why, thank you,I DO make my country proud.
    I also dont speak ghetto trash so you make so sense to me loser. Now, go mow my lawn.



  44. 444

    So tired of illegals feeling they have some "right" to be treated with kid-gloves. The taxes out of my paycheck pay for their damn healthcare and other welfare they fraudulently obtain. Send them all back!! And I'm so glad Adam Levin believes in standing up for what is "right." What a stand-up, moral citizen….so where were these golden-boy morals when he cheated on his wife with no talent ass-clown Jessica Simpson and others???

    Re: squinkylou

    Does the concept of them breaking laws even register in your brain? How absurd is it that people are coming here illegally and living like parasites off of our government and its taxpayers? They bring crime, disease and cost us millions of dollars in health care and government assistance. THAT is absurd!



  49. 449

    well good for such an artist who has concern for others and not indifferent… on the other hand, the most interesting piece is that Adam Levine looks sexy in his outfit in his music video "Misery" I want to see more of Adam Levine wearing boots and I want to know how and what he feels wearing them.. ill write more about him in my blog because he wears boots that both of us has fetish on and maybe why dont he does a video with a guy to see how hot a man to man in a music video. lol.. funny but cute.



  50. 450

    Re: the thing is… – lolollll, I DO talk with "these people" every day at MY fucking job, thanks so much. Not a very good idea to tell other people to "get off the computer" when you're on here doing the saaaaame shit ok. THANKS.



  51. 451

    Eldridge, Dazed and Rickety-Oh thank God that Superdongsuck's meds kicked in and she's snoring now. From what I hear, Haldol is a helluva drug. Good. Now the adults can talk constructively without being interrupted by the kids table.
    I hope her delusions and hallucinations don't keep her up. Especially her thinking that the 3 of us are 1 person using different names-psycho. Anyway, I hear she has a looong shift at Costco making pies and take-home dinners. At least that's what she keeps telling me-I guess she really wants us to know that she has a job. So SDS-sleep tight loser and sweet 1070-filled dreams ;)
    I'll be dreaming of Thursday and the sunshine that will rain on my FINE state on that day.
    Paz.



  52. 452

    To Serena Loves Mario, I totally understand that. And that is kind of my point. It already happens, so what makes people believe it won't in this situation? And with more harrassment and consequence. All I'm saying is that this is the whole problem with it. Racism and discrimination are far less severe than in the past, no shit, but that doesn't mean it's completely gone. And that is the biggest issue with this law and why so many people refuse to accept it.

    I love that the bigots defending Arizona's discriminatory law are calling Perez stupid, yet they can't use proper grammar, spelling, or punctuation to save their lives. I'm sorry the education system failed you, but here's a recap: "there" is not to be used interchangeably with "they're" or "their." Oh, and the argument that these immigrants are taking all of "our" jobs, is absolutely ridiculous. They HELP our economy by doing jobs that YOU would never, ever dream of doing. In addition, they DO pay taxes. Ever heard of something called SALES TAX? Also, if you're going to argue that the children of illegal immigrants should not be in our school system, I really pity you. It really shows how ugly a person you are that you don't want a child to be educated.



  59. 459

    I posted quite a few things last night, and none of them went up! WTF Perez?!?



  60. 460

    -
    -
    The National Research Council study concludes: Illegal immigrants contribute as much as $10 billion to the U.S. economy each year.
    -
    Hispanic-owned businesses generated about $222 billion in revenue.
    -
    In 2009, a study by the Cato Institute, a free market think tank, found that legalization of low-skilled illegal resident workers in the US would result in a net increase in US GDP of $180 billion over ten years
    -
    As the debate over Social Security heats up, the estimated seven million or so illegal immigrant workers in the United States are now providing the system with a subsidy of as much as $7 billion a year.
    -
    While it has been evident for years that illegal immigrants pay a variety of taxes, the extent of their contributions to Social Security is striking: the money added up to about 10 percent of last year's surplus.
    -
    The CBO report found if all illegal immigrants where made legal:
    -
    The analysis found that over the next decade, newly legalized immigrants and guest workers would generate $48 billion in additional tax and Social Security revenues, while using about $23 billion worth of tax credits and social services. Thus, the newly legal immigrant population would contribute a net of about $26 billion over the decade, the report said.

    Re: nrb1868 – I defended Arizona's law, and I certainly don't confuse the words their, there and they're. Trust me, there are idiots on both sides of this argument. I believe people should take the legal routes to enter the country. You obviously haven't seen posters on this board that work in construction, who are struggling to find work, due to illegal immigrants. There are hard-working people who are willing to work any job, but most aren't willing to work for below minimum wage. I worked a job in college that is commonly worked by illegal workers, being paid below minimum wage, but I was paid well above minimum wage, because I worked legally. I think everyone deserves to be paid a fair wage, and employers are taking advantage of these workers. I'm also not a bigot. I completely support immigration, because there are good people coming to America that only want a better life for their family. I wish the government could distinguish between the people that are here illegally, but contributing to society and paying taxes, and those who are taking advantage of the system, and grant citizenship to those who deserve it. That would be ideal, but it's unlikely to happen.

    -end of story!



  65. 465

    Have you ever thought that maybe its not immigrants taking your jobs but the governments and businesses not providing enough jobs.
    Its fucking ridiculous how racist everyone ison this. Yes it is racist to support the Arizona law. Wanna know why? Because everyone should have the right to live wherever the damn well want.
    Because people want to have a better life for themselves that makes them bad?

    And I really fucking hate the way people are talking about "illegals" or "aliens" they are PEOPLE just like you and me. And

    Yeah all the mexicans are coming to steal your jobs. Bullshit. You say they don't pay tax and get all this stuff for free? Like what exactly? Free healthcare, pretty sure for the worlds wealthiest nation they have the worst healthcare providing scheme in the entire world.

    I think its so fucked that people support this. And say get in the right way. Wanna know the right way? My girlfriend is american and I'm australian, and because the US doesnt support same sex marriage I CAN"T GET A VISA TO LIVE THERE! Until you've actually looked at how fucking hard it is to get a damn visa shut the fuck up!

    Re: larzipan – That's a very sad aspect of America's disregard for same-sex couples. I have a lot of friends in same-sex relationships with foreigners, and their only option is to move to them, because their partners can't move to the US.
    As an Australian, I don't think you really understand what is happening in the US, though. People who are in the US illegally are getting free healthcare, housing and education, paid for by US taxpayers. I have no problem with my tax dollars going to help those who are less fortunate, but only if they're in the country legally. Sorry, but the law says people can't live wherever they want. If I wanted to move to Australia and live off the taxpayers, I couldn't. I know your country has immigration rules, and shouldn't they be followed?
    It's not racism - everyone should be treated equally when it comes to immigration. If white Canadians are in the US doing this, they should be sent back to Canada. I don't think you even know what this law is about, and I'm sure this practice is already in place in Australia, because I know it's in place in most European countries. I emigrated from the US and followed the immigration rules, why shouldn't everyone else follow immigration laws?

    Everyone knows what this law is about!
    -
    I think NO I'm sure, you are confused.
    -
    Firstly America doesn't really have welfare anymore and where are all these free homes you think people are getting ?
    -
    Also are you really begrudging the fact Emergency rooms treat sick people ?
    -
    The law you claim others know nothing about because they don't agree with you:
    -
    Does nothing to close the US borders!
    -
    It will result in Racial Profiling!
    -
    What does an Illegal immigrant look like ?
    -
    The whole argument you put forth is bullshit this law does nothing to address your made up and not supported by fact, concerns!

    Re: Aussieone – I understand it won't close borders, but something needs to be done. The Federal Government is doing nothing to help border states, so they have to do something to help themselves.
    Why are you asking me what an illegal immigrant looks like? I'm sure many look just like you and me. As a legal immigrant in a foreign country, I have no issues showing my passport to prove I'm here legally. This happens every day in other countries, why should the US be an exception?
    I have no issue with emergency rooms treating people, but if any tourist went to the US and had to be treated, they'd be expected to pay for it. Why should illegal immigrants be any different? They're visitors in our country. I think US citizens should be entitled to free healthcare, but most are not. Why should tax payers foot the bill for illegal immigrants, when their own citizens are struggling to pay their own medical bills?
    If you think the welfare system in America has disappeared, you're misinformed. It's not at the level of other countries, but it certainly exists and is providing non-citizens with benefits.

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – I explained to you what is horribly wrong with this on a similar post. Thought so anyway
    This is a racist, Republican law (scheme) that will not work NOT AT ALL!
    If Jan Brewer wanted to do something she could go after businesses that hire illegals for less than minimum wage.
    But those are her Republican cronies-can't do that.
    She is catering to bigots, religious right primates and the NRA!
    THESE GROUPS DO NOT LIKE MEXICANS!!! THEY LOVE RACIAL PROFILING!
    THIS LAW IS THE WRONG THING TO DO AND UNCONTITUTIONAL WHICH IS WHY DOJ FILED SUIT!

    I asked you what an illegal immigrant looks like to prove the point that there is no way to have reasonable suspicion that anyone is an illegal immigrant.
    -
    The only way to have such a suspicion in Arizona is race.
    -
    Most illegal immigrant don't go to doctors the cost that people put forward is generally the care of children of illegal immigrant those children born in the US are legal citizens of the United States.
    -
    I don't know when you moved to the UK but since 1996 there has been no real welfare system in the US. A booming prison population but no real welfare system.
    -
    You asked: "Why should tax payers foot the bill for illegal immigrants, when their own citizens are struggling to pay their own medical bills?"
    -
    The real question is why is America's health care system so fucked up ? Why does the same operation in the US cost at minimum five times more than in does in Australia ? YOU CANT BLAME IMMIGRANTS FOR THE FACT THAT HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA IS TREATED BUSINESS NOT A PUBLIC SERVICE.

    The people who whine about how illegals are coming here from Mexico illegally because its so hard to get a job there and life is tough piss me off so much. My parents came here LEGALLY from Iraq, and life is just as bad if not worse there. It is so hard getting a job there, especially one that is good enough to get food on the table every night. Especially since my parents are Christian and the majority of the people there are Muslims, so they would barely ever hire someone who wasn't Muslim. Both my parents worked and they barely made enough to support themselves. Life was tough there but they waited years, did their papers, came here legally (but first had to live in 2 other countries for a couple of years), worked their asses off, studied hard, went to school to learn English, and then got their citizenship. So it is possible to come here legally no matter where you are from.



  78. 478

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – Well I don't know if you are coming back or not. I have no clue what sources you have checked to form your opinion of this issue.
    Before you defend this law any further check out Utah illegal list. This is the kind of fucked up hate we are dealing with!
    Also, you a fan of Rachel Maddow? Check her blog regarding this!
    This kind of shit is unconsionable-especially in 2010!
    Maybe you have been gone from here too long to realize the backward direction parts of this country are moving in because of BIGOTRY!

    Re: supersongbird – I've only been gone 4 years, and based on the treatment of same-sex couples in America, I know the bigotry that goes on. I grew up in the north, so, to be honest, I don't fully understand the racism that goes on in certain parts of the county, but I do know it exists.
    I just don't see an issue with asking those who have already been stopped for an offence to show evidence that they're in the country legally, as that happens on a regular basis in every other country. Maybe I've been in a "big brother" society for so long that I don't see the problem. There is a chance that people will get pulled over for no reason and asked for papers, but people are already pulled over for absolutely no reason.

    Re: Aussieone – I don't see a problem asking people for immigration documents at random. Many countries in Europe do it regularly, and if someone is living in a country illegally, they should be deported.
    Tell the woman that was raped and whose rapist was caught because of CCTV that the cameras have no use. My home was robbed, and because I live near a school with CCTV, the police got a license plate number and made arrests. I have no clue where you get your information from, but clearly CCTV has helped several people. I'd rather live in a country with CCTV on every corner than in America, where people are too concerned with their civil liberties to install CCTV. The only people against CCTV are the ones doing something illegal.
    Re: supersongbird – But you've just said the key word - "illegally"! I agree that many people should be allowed to enter the US and the system does make it difficult, but they're breaking the law. I would imagine more people would be allowed to immigrate if there weren't so many people there illegally.
    Sorry, my mind won't be changed.

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, PAPERS, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

    CCTV Impulsive crimes (e.g. alcohol-related crimes) were less likely to be reduced than premeditated crime (e.g. theft of motor vehicles). Violence against the person rose and theft of motor vehicles fell in the target areas in accordance with national trends in recorded crime."
    The report concluded that CCTV has no effect on crime rates.

    So the immigrants are pissed because their rights will be violated if they have to carry their citizenship papers around with them in their car? I don't get it. Americans have to show their passports to every other person when they go to europe. So if its not that, its because cops will pull more mexicans over? Cops will continue to pull over guys that look like thugs. If u dont want to get pulled over in Arizona, try not look like a thug and always carry your citizenship papers around with you. Doesnt seem to hard.
