Arizona Appeals Immigration Law Ruling!!!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikSad Sad

arizonaap100722023221__opt1.jpg

Two steps forward, one step back. What is wrong with people?

Yesterday, a morally in tuned judge ruled that parts of Arizona's new Immigration law would be put on hold for further review, including the section requiring officials to check a resident's immigration status when enforcing other laws if there's a reasonable suspicion the person is in the United States illegally.

We were thrilled by the news, as were many others who have been fiercely protesting this law, which is basically legalizing racial profiling!

Yeah, well, the dishonorable Governor of Arizona isn't happy with this decision to hold back and has filed an appeal to lift the preliminary injunction so that the ENTIRE law can take effect…and like, NOW!

How about, instead of that, you just BACK THE EFF OFF?!?!

Ugh! This whole thing is so super frustrating! We can't stand seeing such blatant inequality being tolerated!

Boo on you, Arizona!

    What is wrong with these people? Have you seen the border later? It's like a huge Welcome mat in their state. Come on in we'll pay for all your needs, no problema. And our Prez loves you. Come on and it's on us.

    That should be the new tagline for the USA. "Come on in, it's on us"



  2. 2

    Man, Perez. Have you ever even read the law? It's pretty short and easy to read. There's nothing illegal about it. I dare you to even watch Border Wars and see what happens in Nogales. I live in Tucson. I see the crime. Read the law and know it has nothing to do with how you and the celebrities are perceiving it and sending info to the general public. Sad. Take time to educate yourself.



  3. 3

    Morally intune? Have you lost your mind Perez? They dont call them illegal for nothing. They are criminals and should be deported.



  4. 4

    this is a great law and good for the governor of Az! I commend her for standing up for her state and her constituents! I hope they win the appeal and every state follows after them…it's time to clean this country up.



  5. 5

    Perez, I love you and your site but I disagree with you on this. Illegal immigration is a huge problem and a major reason for why the United States is so broke. This law is a step in the right direction although, I do believe that there are better ways (than this law) to stop illegal immigration. Like you said, this law could lead to racial profiling. However if the government would do it's job and secure the borders, Arizona wouldn't have to resort to this law.



  6. 6

    NO boo to u!!!!!!!!!!!!! ok i will let my family go hungry so ever one from Mex can come over and take all are jobs and get all the help they want for free F*** u…. This can be a good and safe law we just need time. At some point we have to take care of are family!! I am for this law at any cost!!



  7. 7

    Calm down. The appeal is to the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco, arguably the most liberal Circuit in the United States. The Ninth Circuit will affirm the decision. The worst case scenario is that the State would petition the Supreme Court of the United States to decide the case, which takes a very long time. Furthermore, SCOTUS has the discretion to hear the cases it wants to, so it might not even be interested in the case.



  8. 8

    WTF IDIOT. Just a few words and I'm out. What part of ILLEGAL are you not getting. If you are here illegally then what U.S rights do you have……I'll give you the whole Civil Rights and Humanity thingy but really if you are a law abiding citizen from here what do you care if an officer of the law wants to see some ID. Time to get out of your bubble and join the rest of us in REALITY. These are way different times we live in and honestly with all that is going on in the world a few little concessions ain't gonna break the bank. Do your part, follow the rules and no one gets hurt. PEACE!



  9. 9

    Illegal is Illegal. Only the legally retarded, i.e, Perez, do not understand this.



  10. 10

    Hey Perez, why don't you take all the illegal immigrants in, feed them, house them and pay for their health insurance. Since you want them so badly, go ahead. I am an immigrant from Germany, married to an American and yet I had to pay for all of my tests to get a green card. I did not throw my ass pregnant across the border. Being an immigrant I have to carry my green card wherever I go and since I have nothing to hide, I would not mind to show my green card to anybody who asks to see it. That is the whole point. The people with nothing to hide shouldn't mind showing their immigration papers. I have not ever received a handout from the American Government or from my own.
    I agree with the Immigration Law completely and that should say a lot coming from an imigrant themselves. If you are illegally in this country get he fuck out. Also if you want to stay in this country, learn the fucking language and obey to this country's laws. I will never understand how there are parts of California where spanish is the first language. What the fuck is wrong with learning the language of the country you wish to reside in? Quit your fucking whining.



  11. 11

    Who are you to tell a governor of a state to "BACK THE EFF OFF" of a law dealing with her own state?!
    If anyone should do that, it should be YOU considering you are not a resident of Arizona.



  12. 12

    It's going through whether you like it or not dipshit. Because, unlike uneducated moronic asshats like yourself, anyone with half a brain cell knows that there is no "racial profiling" anywhere in this law. #1 - since Mexicans are NOT a race, it's impossible, and #2 since it ONLY provides for cops to check immigration status on people they are already busting for a crime … you know … CRIMINALS … like ILLEGAL immigrants. Ever heard of those Perez??



  13. 13

    I live here in AZ. I'm 1/4 Mexican and 3/4 White.
    I think that in principle the law isn't as bad as it seems. AZ is spending alot of money on illegal immigrants. Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of America, due to drug cartels. The main thing that AZ is pushing for is protection for the legal citizens. While I agree that they could go about this better, I do think it's something we should look into Nationwide.
    Sadly my neighbors have dropped off the face of the planet, and the school district is shrinking at an alarming rate. But there are estimates of astronomical numbers on money that will be saved since the state won't have to foot the bill.
    Also, my husbands Identity has been stolen and used by an Illegal and that caused a world of hurt for us.
    Wish that the USA would run background checks and give the Illegals their citizenship to conquer the problem.
    But all in all this law isn't as bad as it seems. (coming from someone seeing the daily effects, who is hispanic, and who has read it through.)



  14. 14

    Re: bongo – Thank goodness someone has a brain! This has nothing to do with racial profiling, most of the world, especially America has gotten passed that long ago. This is about catching the people who are in the country, illegally, and putting an end to their leeching of our resources from us, as well as leeching money from our economy. Illegal immigrants are the main culprits for our ever-falling economy. This should be a wake-up call to all illegal immigrants to become citizens so that they do not have to cause this country and themselves, as well as their families any further despair.



  15. 15

    There's no inequality here. AZ is merely trying to put into practice what the federal government should have been doing all along and hasn't. AZ is not the bad guy here…as usual it's the feds who don't have their act together. We have to stop illegal immigration into this country. We can't afford to adequately feed and take care of our own citizens or those immigrants who are here legally. Why should we be paying to support people who are here illegally? I have absolutely no problem with legal immigration…my Irish ancestors came here several generations ago through Ellis Island. I have no problem with people wanting a better life for themselves and their families. However, why should the U.S. encourage and support illegals when no other country does? In fact, there are some countries who would shoot you first and ask questions later. That is why everyone who travels internationally should be carrying their passport with them at all times. Asking for proof of legal residency when there is a reasonable doubt is not all that different than being asked to see a passport. I commend the Governor of AZ for taking an unpopular, politically incorrect stand by trying to do what the feds should be doing and refusing to back down. This country could use more politicians like her.



  16. 16

    get a grip Perez! the borders are war zones! for example Houston, TX is overrun with MS13; when there is an accident if you are hit by an illegal then you had better have uninsured motorist insurance; jails are full of illegal aliens that commited crimes; hospitals are closing(UTMB in TX put up signs that they cannot help a person unless they have legal paperwork); etc etc etc. Perez wake up this is a serious problem. I guess you would rather the US go bankrupt to support an ILLEGAL population. I have plenty of legal mexican friends that agree with the govenor of AZ. You are so so reactionary - fanning the flames instead of educating yourself. We should remove all Illegals then change how they can apply. Jan Brewer for President 2012!



  17. 17

    YOU do not live here, it really isn't a matter of discussion on what YOU think needs to be done. The opposers of this law have no right to bear judgement on us because almost all of the opposers do NOT live here. If the illegals would just do things the right way and not border hop their way to the United States we wouldn't be even talking about this new law.



  18. 18

    okay i just wanna say, NOT EVERY ILLEGAL IMIGRANT TAKES FROM OUR $$, u should educate urselfs too.. I've only seen lazy u.s citizens (including my aunt) n all they do is sit on there asses n wait for the $ to roll in.. illegal imigrants can't even get these services.. like in every race, there's always some1 abusing the system, n doing bad stuff, don't just pin- point it on the Mexican illegal immigrants, (cus in arizona there's more mexican's than anything). STOP THE IGNORANCE, EVERY1, PLS!WE'RE HUMAN BEINGS FOR GOD'S SAKE, GOD DOESN'T SEE RACE OR COLOR, THIS LAW DOES.



  19. 19

    As a brown citizen of the US! I would love to live in England, Japan and France. But I know that when I go there I have to show my papers and get a visa like any other foreigner! Why is it different for illegals when they come to the US? I am BROWN so when I do go to a foreign state, yes I am going to stick out. Its not racial profiling, its called being sensible!



  20. 20

    Seriously Perez you have a comments section but do you ever take the time to read them? If you did you would see that you are the one being stupid. This is America home of the free and the brave not the illegals wanting handouts. I work hard for what I have and pay my taxes. Why can they come across the border and have children in our hospitals and we pick up the tab? If you think this law is wrong, would it be ok if I just walked into your house and started living there? You don't know me and I didn't ask you if it was ok but to bad for you. I want to so it must be ok. The only way you can get my ass off your sofa is to go to court. Ahh but the court sides with me. Kinda sucks to be you huh? Do you understand how the people of this country and not just Arizona feel about illegals. Yes Mexico is rejoicing, I wonder why. We stopped all the Cubans from coming over on rafts so why can't we stop these people from walking in? What's your address? I am coming to move in asshat.

  21. jkphx says – reply to this


    21

    Holy crap, Perez! The law states what the Federal law already does!! Illegal is illegal, why can't you understand that?? READ the damn thing before you start spouting your uneducated opinions. Racial profiling is a crime as well and will not be tolerated under the new law. I know that most undocumented people in the state are not hurting anyone but we must do something about the borders and, whether you like it or not, these people are breaking the law!! SIT DOWN, Perez!!!



  22. 22

    YOU back the F off, fool! You don't live here so you have no idea of what it's like or what is going on. You're an ignorant lard ass



  23. 23

    Guess what peps….this bullshit in Arizona should not surprise anyone, thye don't celebrate Martin Luther King Day. WTF?! Racist much?! I wanna see who all these white people are gonna hire to do their laundry and mow their lawns if they profile and kick out all the illegals who are just trying to feed their families back home….



  24. 24

    Every time you or some celebrity talks about this law, I have to wonder if we're reading the same thing. Instead of whining about how this is taking away rights, spend your energy on trying to get people to become LEGAL citizens so we won't have all these problems.



  25. 25

    I disagree. What about all the people who are here legally? Should we just ignore the people who follow the rules? Does my American citizenship have no value? I believe immigrants deserve a better life and there should be a better way, but something has to be done. I was a teacher and know how much money was being spent to educate children of illegal immigrants… a drain on an already strapped education system.



  26. 26

    Heres the thing.. its already ILLEGAL for them to be in Arizona!! This law only allows officials to enforce it. How would you like illegals taking over your state and stealing jobs, and government funding from people who are legal citizens? Get your facts straight and think about how you would react if this was going on in your state douche.



  27. 27

    It is easy to talk the way you do from your nice and cushy seat, Perez.



  28. 28

    what's wrong? i'm not racist or prejudice at all, and i know i'm about to sound that way…but while i waited in a waiting room today (hopefully getting a job after i was laid off due to downsizing), CNN was on and they were discussing how theres 1 in every 10 jobs that belong to an ILLEGAL immigrant in the areas of Cali, Arizona, and Nevada. Illegal immigrants are taking the jobs of those who are busting their asses trying to get a damn job! they also said that there are about 130 million jobs out in the US and well over 2 million of those jobs belong to ILLEGAL immigrants. hello??? why is that? give that 2 mill jobs to hose who are legal and unemployed! it's not fair to us. if you are legal, i don't have a problem with you.



  29. 29

    agreed! perez, you need to get educated before you go running around on your high horse trying to bring "equality to all"



  30. 30

    These illegals committed a crime coming here ILLEGALLY and WE are paying a dear price for it!!! These "criminals" do NOT deserve equality, and I'm tired of them demanding and expecting it….it's a slap in the face to all the people that paid thousands of dollars and spent years doing it right, the LEGAL way. I'm tired of our schools, medical system, etc suffering because we are paying for them!! Enough is enough. Nothing has worked and now it's time to take drastic measures! If you're legal, you should have NO problem showing your ID to prove you belong here. As Americans, we should all be for this law to get our country back. I'm tired of my hard earned tax dollars covering their asses! And then to have the GALL to wave your flag on our streets while protesting!! Disrespectful and the last straw!



  31. 31

    You can't stand seeing blatant inequality?! These people are BREAKING the law. Get your facts straight and leave the politics out of your celebrity blog.



  32. 32

    How about the Federal Gov't actually enforce the Federal laws instead of forcing states to take these measures to protect the citizens of the state???



  33. 33

    F U too Perez!!! Maybe you should move cause guess what you and all your peep's are unaware of is Cali has had this law in full effect for many years! Do your homework before you try to have an opinion!! Dumb ass!



  34. 34

    You idiot, they are here illegally! That means it's against the law, which means they should get the Hell out and quit mooching off our tax dollars. I'm not for my tax dollars going towards sending Pedro's illegal children to school. Arizona is simply trying to enforce the already existing FEDERAL laws! duh!



  35. 35

    Here we go again. Both sides have their good points. I can't decide which side I am on.



  36. 36

    The activist judge's ruling was disappointing, but there IS an upside. Most Americans are already EXTREMELY pissed-off about the direction the Obama Regime is taking our country, and it's blatant and total disregard for the will of the majority. With this ruling, the Regime once again spits in the face of the majority of Americans, which only STRENGTHENS our resolve to vote their sorry asses out of office starting in November.



  37. 37

    Good for the Governor of AZ!



  38. 38

    Re: gableoc
    In AZ they aren't required to be citizens to get state funded insurance, food stamps, or cash aide. There is a Refugee box on the old paperwork that they are now taking out of circulation. Being in the state illegally is now Illegal and they are losing their benefits.
    So it will save quite a bit of money when they are not allowed to collect.



  39. 39

    You're such an uneducated jackass — how many made up words are used in this article? "Morally in tuned" — it's "tuned in" not "in tuned" — unless you are talking about pianos.
    .
    And, as usual, you know nothing REAL about this story. Explain your opinion to a single mom with no place to live over here because all the Mex's have the cheapest housing. Or to all the orphaned kids who's fathers were shot and killed over border wars, gang wars, etc.
    .
    I don't see you asking these folks to your house for dinner.



  40. 40

    Re: gableoc – No one said there aren't Americans who also drain the system, but did you really just say some illegals NEVER use $$ and resources. So, they don't send their kids to school, don't use the roads, don't rely on the protection of the police, etc, etc, etc?



  41. 41

    Re: MexicanLilo
    I live in AZ.
    We celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
    Do some fact checking please.



  42. 42

    Perez I agree with you. If you are unemployed and are so with this law take yourself and apply to work the fields and all the other jobs that these poor people are willing to do. Oh what I can't here you????? Are you out d door??Get real. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Everyone deserves a chance.



  43. 43

    Perez, If you are here "legally" then you don't need to worry about it! It's not about being against Latinos….it's about coming here and doing it "Legally" and paying your god damn taxes like the rest of us AMERICANS! It is not FREE here!



  44. 44

    Boo on you Perez for embracing the criminals! What don't you understand about the word ILLEGAL??



  45. 45

    I know a 6'2" tall, thin, blonde, blue eyed guy that was asked for his proof of citizenship when he was stopped at a checkpoint as he was driving through Arizona. What is your problem? Border Patrol has been around for ages, and profiling has been going on forever. Driving up from San Diego on the 5, there is a checkpoint that slows traffic in order to look at occupants in vehicles as they pass through. They will question anyone who looks suspicious. Why aren't you screaming about that? We have an obligation to protect our borders. Illegal immigration is illegal. I have no problem with immigrants who use the legal method, but oppose those who bust through our borders paying no heed to our laws. Suck it, Mario. You're wrong.



  46. 46

    Re: MexicanLilo – I am from Arizona. You clearly are not. You don't live here you don't see how bad this state is getting! Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the COUNTRY. Why do we have to live in fear and protect those who are here illegally? Everyday police officers and citizens are being kidnapped or murdered because of all the drug cartel coming over here. Our jobs are being taken. WE DO CELEBRATE MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY. and because of that we dont even celebrate presidents day which is a joke!! So get your facts straight you and perez sound really uneducated. my grandparents are from mexico and came here the RIGHT WAY. I promise you that if they were asked for their papers for ANY REASON they would be proud to show you their papers.

    I am sick and tired of people who dont live here acting like they know things.

    The "president" is saying we can't do anything about it, so you know what mr "president", YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND STOP GOING ON THE VIEW.



  47. 47

    YOU ARE SUCH AN IDIOT PEREZ! WHY DONT YOU BRING YOUR FAT ASS TO ARIZONA AND PAY FOR ALL THE ILLEGALS HERE! THIS LAW MIRRORS THE FEDERAL LAW! STAY OUT OF POLITICS YOU MORON AND STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW BEST…………….WHICH IS STUPID ASS GOSSIP.



  48. 48

    First of all I don't see why all these idiots from California are critizing our Immigration Law when theirs are way worse. Second of all Perez don't say boo on AZ because you're implying it's all of AZ's fault this law is in effect. It's not! It's the government of AZ. Get your shit straight!



  49. 49

    Hey perez, shut the fuck up and mind your own business you stupid, ugly piece of shit. Anyone that doesn't support the law and doesn't live in AZ needs to shut it. It's not your responsibility to criticize a law that your states are to chicken shit to have.



  50. 50

    I for one am happy that Arizona has the balls to stand up against the Federal Government and at the least try and stop the blatant disregard for American laws.. people like Perez are part of the problem not the solution.. oh boo hoo.. people are being asked to prove they are legal… What would you do Perez if your mother got shot in the head and come to find out it was an Illegal who did it?.. you'd be singing a different tune than I am sure…so do us a favor and shut the hell up or get out of America.. we have NO room for anyone who does not follow our laws.



  51. 51

    racial profiling is not what is happening! If you are in this country as an American there should be no problem! I just don't understand why I can not get assistance with anything including my kids education because I am here legally and an american, THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE!



  52. 52

    For someone who prides himself on being "in the know" Perez is completely ignorant on this issue. And I mean ignorant in the true sense of not knowing what he is talking about. There is nothing about this law that every CAUCASIAN



  53. 53

    Re: MexicanLilo – Shut the hell up you ignorant twat. There are plenty of people here that celebrate MLK day. I do, and I'm white. I'm thankful that there were men like him that stood up for their rights. We're just trying to protect our state. So mind your own business and stop worrying about Arizona. My state does not concern you.



  54. 54

    hey perez fuck you! why dont you TRY living in arizona with these CRIMINALS! over 70% of the illegals have criminal backgrounds and because of that have caused Phoenix to become the number one kidnapping city in the world. so unless you want to come pay for their taxes, child care, food, school, housing ect, stfu.



  55. 55

    Illegal is illegal, period. If you are here ILLEGALLY then you don't have any civil rights to violate !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  56. 56

    Re: cheerioko – This summer programs and food will be given to anyone whose primary spoken language is spanish but any program that my child wants to take will cost us. During the school year time is taken away from students so children that don't speak english can be brought up to speed with their translater.



  57. 57

    Re: cheerioko – What about the little girl that was on the news with Michelle Obama in Maryland when she was visiting schools were she said her parents didn't have papers.



  58. 58

    Seriously Perez……come on……you honestly think the word ILLEGAL means come on into our country and use our resources with no cost to you? Please! Everyone is welcome into our country. I have NO problem with immigrants coming into the US and making a better life for themselves and family BUT I don't think it's a lot to ask for it to be done LEGALLY!!! ILLEGAL, LEGAL…..there is a difference and it's a big difference! This whole paying for ILLEGAL immigrants to live here is getting old and is screwing the American people. GOOD FOR YOU Governor of Arizona! Your doing your job and your doing a damn good one! Two thumbs up from me Arizona!



  59. 59

    Re: cheerioko – well it sounds like it.. as far as i know they also do p theyre taxes, which pays for 'ur' roads, n police protection etc. etc. They wouldn't be taking jobs, if those 'americans' (as u called them) on welfare would take those jobs the illegals "steal", I mean what 'I'd much rather be on welfare then wash dishes, or work in a farm?' employer's need to hire some1 to do the job, if some lazy 'american's' much rather be on welfare then having a JOB, employer's can hire some1 who will do it.. there's crappy/ abusive ppl of all races, stop focusing on the imigrants, we were all imigrants at one point, well our ancestors. but u get the point. & I HATE COMMENTING, WE HAVE TO RESPECT WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW. RIGHT OR WRONG WE WILL ALL ANSWER TO GOD WHEN OUR TIME COMES!! good luck!!



  60. 60

    I totally agree with Arizona.Unless Perez would personally like to pay for all the services that they get that is crippling this country the STFU.There is a legal way as I have friends that came from Mexico in the 70's and did it the legal way. They are the very best people too.It can be done and Arizona is leading the way to make this happen.



  61. 61

    Your ignorance is GLARING. Illegal is not a race, it means "illegal" — legal immigrants are always welcome, come here the right way, pay taxes like the rest of us, etc. PEREZ is shouting is uniformed mouth off without a clue ONCE AGAIN. Arizona is trying to enforce a law that is already in existence to protect its people and its borders from ILLEGALS.



  62. 62

    1 LAST COMMENT, i do agree at the fact that we should know who lives here, so we can prevent criminals from roaming our streets!! :) bcus as much as i hate admitting it, alot of illegals do commit crimes, n leave without being noticed, and then come back when 'things' cool off, so i guess im in the middle when it concerns this issue i just mentioned.. but ill keep my thoughts to myself now.. bye!



  63. 63

    If you are illegal, get out of the country. Plain and simple.



  64. 64

    I've observed that the people who disagree with the AZ law either are Mexican, an illegal immigrant lookin' to get "theirs", or people who simply have no interaction with the Mexican illegal individuals. I work with illegal immigrant children in the public school system AND YES, they do put a strain on our education system. The amount of money spent on them is outrageous and would be better spent on American children. I'm sick of people calling the law racist but something must be done.

    As far as racial profiling goes, law enforcement's done it forever and will continue to do it…just ask blacks, poor whites, and Arabs.



  65. 65

    There is NOTHING wrong with profiling. Perez, you believe it is UNFAIR to ask someone in a border state if they are here legally. Why? If someone pulled you over for speeding and said "Mario, do you have citizenship papers?" and you said "Why yes officer, here they are" and the officer said "Thank you Mario, now listen, you were doing 100 in an 80. I'm going to give you a ticket for going 90. Watch you speed in the future and have a nice day"

    What would be wrong with that? Do you think "OMG he hates me because I was not born here? He wants to kill me?" Probably, knowing you, but in reality, the guy has done nothing wrong. He is making sure you are abiding by the LAW and immigration laws ARE LAWS. You may not like that law, but laws are there for a reason.

    The U.S. has MILLIONS of illegal aliens. They come here illegally, they take jobs from U.S. citizens, they use U.S. resources such as health care and schools. The U.S. has citizens on the streets, neighborhoods infested with crimes, hungry children…..and they don't have the money to fix those issues. But….if they weren't paying for the illegals, then they probably would have the resources. It is estimated illegal immigrants cost the U.S. 100 BILLION dollars a year. Think of what that 100 BILLION could do for the U.S.?

    It is not the U.S, does not want people from other countries, it wants them to do it LEGALLY.



  66. 66

    To MexicanLilo:

    Re: MexicanLilo – GUESS WHAT - the lady that cleans my house is from Guatemala and she is here LEGALLY. The guy who does my yard work is a white man and is here LEGALLY. AND, every company I have ever worked for in Arizona has a declared paid holiday for Martin Luther King Day in January. YOU ARE MISINFORMED - MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY IS A STATE HOLIDAY IN ARIZONA!!!!



  67. 67

    Once again Perez, you are outnumbered by popular opinion and common sense. The majority of Americans, both U.S. born and immigrated (legally) want this. You need to read the law for yourself - not go off of what misinformed media and celebrities have told you about it.



  68. 68

    see, i'm brazilian, and here in brazil every year thousands and thousands of ILLEGAL imigrants(and even criminals that come here to hide from their criminal charges, including a lot of american criminals…) from all over the world come here and "somehow" become a LEGAL citizen…(they pay for fake documents or even bribe authorities to get REAL ones…), and even filled with people from all over the world, even with corruption, drugs, violence(especially in the transit) this is the most AMAZING place in the world(at least for me), see, here, if you are willing to work, you can get a really good life, this country is big, and there's place for everyone, i do get that there in U.S, specially for those who live near border line it must be very dificult, but lets not make this an excuse to be unfair with people, not all the illegals are criminals or bad people, sometimes you gotta think about "what lead someone to face a very dangerous travel, just to go live and work in another country ?", i already had several foreign neighbor, including a guy whom was running away from a murder charge, but he was very nice to me while he was here, we just got no place to judge, no matter what, but i understand your(and the most of the americans) P.O.V, you are only defending yourselves, in the way that you know, but i really hope that arizona(and the other states that will implement this law, eventually) doesn't get to many law suits, or non-pacific protests…

    Since you like illegal immigrants so much, you should grant them asylum in your big fat ass cavity; goatse that shit up!

    Re: Cezanne – there we go, another mistake on our part i agree, it's not about race, it's about the legal status. the thng we're not agreeing on is being asked about ur status becus of the color of ur skin, or the way u look. arizona shouldn't give aid (food stamps, csh aid) to the illegal's & as i said before they do pay taxes. there alot of thngs that neither side gets, && WE SHOULD ALL EDUCATE OURSELVES. I like the illegal imigrants, who are proud ppl and don't take help from the government, and follow laws. But we don't see those, we only see the bad one's & judge them all the same, & punish them all the same.



  72. 72

    Maybe you and every other ignorant asswipe should back the fuck off! Why the hell should I pay for criminals (yes, they are criminals) and their families? They feel entitled and the law will now apply differently to them. I've lived in Arizona all my life and they have always been an eyesore and burden in this state. I'm really fucking sick of it. Perez, get your head out of your ass and do the research. Racial profiling, really!?? If you did not have that to hide behind, then what? Why are so many people missing the fact that we have a real problem here and that the government doesn't do jack shit to enforce the law.

    JAN BREWER HAS BIGGER BALLS THAN YOU PEREZ! But now that I've said that, you probably want to suck them.



  73. 73

    Judge to voters: Go fuck yourselves.
    Judge to illegals: Line up for the settlements and handouts.
    -
    The Flopbama Regime apparently has no problem with the drugs, sex slaves, terrorists, guns, & maybe even WMDs coming across the border, as long as they can get Hispanic votes in November.
    -
    I bet the Dems are sure wishing they backed Hillary.
    Captain Kickass' negatives are worse than Hillary.



  74. 74

    Until you've actually lived in Arizona and know whats it like, you really cant speak. Why do we AMERICANS have to give up our rights so that ILLEGALS can have rights? What is the problem with trying to actually go by the consitution? Arizona is huge for drugs and they come from Mexico, and as a Mother this one really concerns me…Arizona is number one for child abductions and where do they usually go? They are held hostage or ransom and so on. You dont hear our news so you wouldnt know half of what goes on here. I am not racist in any way, I just think if you want to be free and come here COME THE RIGHT WAY!



  75. 75

    Re: MexicanLilo – It's racist in itself to assume that illegals would only fill, and are only good enough, for such jobs. You set the standards for expectation really high for them!



  76. 76

    Re: me_shell28 – what jobs are the illegal immigrants taking?? the ones you think your too good for? the ones everyone in this country is too good for? so when you go to school and graduate from college your saying that you are going to clean houses from 8-5 for for 30$ or pick up trash, cut lawns, do contsruction? such valid points! you are such a smarty pants!!

    "at some point we need to take care of OUR family"..



  77. 77

    Perez, you are an ass. You have NO idea what the law even says. I am sick of you bashing Arizona and our Gov. You are a hateful person and you can sit back and watch as other states have and more will jump on the AZ band wagon. As least AZ has the balls to stand up to the rest of the Country and ever the idiot politics in Washington.



  78. 78

    Re: gableoc – Well, since we were on the topic of educating ourselves, I was going to write a response correcting your terrible grammer, but i see you have a tenuous grasp of the english language at best, so why bother; proof positive that it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.



  79. 79

    Perez i couldnt agree with you more. Im a native of AZ. my dad crossed over when he was young and recently became a citizen(after many years of paperwork) i cant believe how ignorant people can be. How many of you actually live here and witness all this. First off why are most people referring to only Mexicans?? There are illegals here that are Canadians, Asians,etc… but all people think about are Mexicans. I honestly see more crime and people feeding off our government that are legal citizens. Yes i agree AZ has huge illegal immigration problem, but this law was not the answer. How can you ask someone that 'looks' illegal for proof of citizenship?? How does an illegal look??? Our own Gov. couldnt answer that question. I am glad that Judge Bolton put a temp. injunction on parts of the law. I just hope it can stick. oh n yes i read the law several times. before anyone wants to go and say i have no clue what im talking about.



  80. 80

    please do not blame all of arizona.. we don't like the law either.. the governor is working all on her own on this one.. yes we want the border secure but not at the expense of the legal citizens of this country… that law was absolutly a violation of the constitution.. and thank god the judge was not afraid to say so..

    the provisions that were made didn't stop the law, they just made it more constitutional.. i'm sorry but none of us want redneck cops running rampant with the authority to stop anyone who looks hispanic

    and in case you wanna argue.. that is exactly what the law states! they don't have to have any other reason to stop and harass someone.. someone LIVING IN THIS COUNTRY LEGALLY!!!

    I'm so sick of people stating what other countries do to immigrants..hello.. that is what makes this America… the fact that we are not like these other countries and that we have the constitution that protects are citizens

    thank you Perez! thank you for being on the side of arizona residents rather than it's corrupt politician…

    the bright side.. the appeal will be denied



  81. 81

    ONCE AGAIN PEE PEE GO FUCK YOURSELF!!! THIS DOESNT CONCERN YOU ASSWIPE. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT LEGAL RIGHTS FOR GAYS? AND SINCE U AND YOURS COULDNT DO IT THE RIGHT WAY U GOT FUCKED. DOESNT MEAN WE ARE GONNA SIT AROUND AND TAKE THIS SHIT. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!! ITS NOT YOUR STATE, SO FIND SOME BANDWAGON OVER THERE TO JUMP ON. IF U HAD EVEN LOOKED AT THE PICS I SENT U HOW THEY HAVE DESTROYED OUR DESERTS (AW NEVERMIND U DONT HAVE A CONCIOUS OR A SYMPATHETIC BONE IN YOUR BODY TO EVEN KNOW WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT) U JUST LIKE TO HEAR YOURSELF TALK. IF THIS IS A BID TO GET TO BE A JUDGE ON A.I. FORGET IT, THEY DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR PUT ON FACADES OF DECENCY. SO SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE AND GET ON SOMEONE ELSE'S ASS LIKE GAGAS. DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT THERE ARE OTHER STATES GOING TO ADOPT THE SAME KIND OF LAW HUH DID YA HUH? NOT PROBABLY CAUSE U THINK U KNOW EVERYTHING BOUT NOTHING. ITS PROBABLY SOME ARIZONANS THAT ARE PISSED THAT YOUR STATE DOESNT LOOK CRAPPY ENUFF SO THEY ARE SETTING THE WILDFIRES TO SEE HOW YOU ALL LIKE TO LOOK AT DESTROYED BEAUTY. EVER THINK BOUT THAT? FUCKING MORON. I REALLY DISLIKE YOU NOW . I WILL NEVER STAND UP FOR YOU AGAIN. WORK ON SOMETHING THAT U MIGHT KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT. LIKE LETTING LADY GAGA STICK AL SHARPTON'S AND REGGIE JACKSONS DICKS UP YOUR ASS AND IN YOUR MOUTH.



  82. 82

    did anyone see or take notice that it's coming up on the one year anniversary of the 3 american hikers imprisonment in Iran…. for ACCIDENTALLY crossing the border illegally?! well they have been held there for a year now and there is no end in sight. f*ck you Perez! this law is probably one of the best things this country has seen in years. if any of us americans go anywhere illegally we get imprisoned or disappear because of their laws! now it's time we protect ourselves. if you don't like this 'inequality' go live in mexico, dumb ass.



  83. 83

    Re: maria13
    if they want to work here so badly and love america but are here illegally it's wrong. it doesn't matter if you clean toilets or are a medical doctor! if you love it here, become legal!



  84. 84

    I support AZ.



  85. 85

    i think it is an amazing law, maybe if people came in legally they would accept and embrace it. if they come in legally they would be MORE than happy to show papers, i know id carry my passport around to show YES IM LEGAL.. and deport all the illegals who dont have papers. if we went to their country and demanded the stuff they want from us they would either laugh, jail or deport us… end of story. arizona has my vote for sure



  86. 86

    Re: Mom2Three98

    Ok that is so totally racist right there. Okay so what this stupid law basically states is that people cannot come over here and look to bettering themselves and their family.People that have posted in favor of this awful law have said it take money away ok whatever people who cross to the US looking for a better life RISK THEIR LIVES!!!! Just because people choose the wrong path and turn to being criminals doesn't mean that everyone is the same everyone is being rude and ignorant when they call of the Hispanics that cross crimanals. What about children huh? They don't have a right to learn and study either? Look at all the great people that have crossed to the US and have achieved greatness. All of you who support this law need to just shut it please. And perez you are right 100% she needs to back off.That's all i am going to say and i don't care what people say about my post cause it's my post and it's a free country (except in Arizona)

    Why are people making this about illegals taking jobs they say Americans won't take? I think some of you are grossly misinformed on that issue in this economy. As a son of a former Border Patrol Agent for 30+ years, trust me, Arizona needs to do this and get things under control. If you want to live here so bad, then come the right way and pay taxes with those jobs some say no one wants and help pay for the food your family is eating, medical costs, etc. Some people have no clue with Perez being one of them.

    Re: gableoc – If you are driving on roads, if you are living in US properties, if you are goig to school, if you go to public parks, you are using American tax dollars. If you visit and use those things, no big deal. If you live here and use those things, you need to pay your taxes.



  90. 90

    Obama’s DOJ is going all out, to defend the “rights” of illegals at the same time it is trampling on the rights of actual citizens.
    -
    This lawsuit is a blessing to Conservatives. It shows the country that the Liberals really don’t care about freedom, the Constitution, liberty, only about “winning”.
    -
    America now gets to watch, all summer all the way into November, Flopbama and the Department of InJustice fight against the interests of Americans and the rule of law thrown away.
    -
    Do you still have any doubt about Obama hating Americans?



  91. 91

    All imigrants should be sent back to their own countries…sorry your countries suck but I am tired of paying taxes to support you!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. Perez you raging homo I wish you a serious case of crabs and can't well for you to go to hell with all the other homos!!!!!!!!



  92. 92

    Boo on that idiot judge with their head up their ass that blocked it. This has got to stop, there are more damn mexicans over here than in mexico. We need to start shooting the bastards when they stroll over the border.That's the only way we are ever going to stop this. These fuckers are ruining our country and the goverment just continues to hand them everything on a silver platter.One state has the balls to try and stand up to them and this idiot judge blocks it. WE ARE FUCKED.

    "I like the illegal imigrants, who are proud ppl and don't take help from the government, and follow laws. "

    The first thing they do when they step on U.S. soil is break a law by entering illegally.



  97. 97

    Go Arizona! We have a process for becoming a U.S. citizen. It doesnt take an Einstein to go through the steps like every other immigrant has - and is - going through. Illegal immigration is a financial drain and a potential security threat.



  98. 98

    Rock on Arizona! The rest of the country is behind you despite what our Do Nothing Liar in Chief Messiah Dumbama says.

    Send the illegals back to the filthy hell hole that is Mexico!

    Even Arizona's Democratic Congresswoman agrees with Arizona's new law much to Messiah Dumbamas regret!

    Buy from and support Arizona!



  99. 99

    Flopbama and his Regime all exhibit the seven deadly sins in one form or another:
    -
    Pride: arrogance
    Envy: the need to take what others have earned or denigrate achievement
    Gluttony: spending like there is no tomorrow, especially Obama's life as King
    Lust: always for political power, some for sexual domination
    Anger: at anyone who disagrees with their ideology and seeks freedom
    Greed: using political power to steal from taxpayers and reward supporters to get free stuff
    Sloth: laziness rewarded by benefits and welfare — maddox



  100. 100

    Whatever, there are parts of the bill that are straight up wrong! Arizona and the rest of the US should have taken action a long ass time ago. A huge growth in the latino population in the past decade has America freaking out. Illegal immigration is wrong no matter who is crossing the border. Anyone who thinks racism plays no part at all in this matter is either totally oblivious or racist themselves. Don't forget this country's past, it's still hauting us today!
