The Short answer is yes. Does Arizona have the right to enforce immigration law? Technically this is a federal issue, but the federal government is doing very little to help out the states on this issue. So in the reality that the federal government is not doing its job, the State has not only the right but the public responsibility to take over. From my reading of the bill it is a watered down version of the federal law. yes I said watered down, So for those who are afraid of racial profiling this law has some protected language in it, to protect our liberties. As every American I am against profiling, we are all after all descendants of immigrants. My mother came from Canada, and it took her years to become a citizen and to this day it is one of the proudest days of her life. I support the citizens od Arizona, and I am in favor of Arizona's law. We have to bring order to Chaos; this is not only justifiable but necessary.
I am not anti Hispanic, in any way shape or form. But we need to bring order to this situation. Amnesty is not the answer. We have to reinforce these ideas:
• Know who is coming into our country
• Have them medically checked out
• Have them understand the laws and the rules of living in our society
• Understand our history
• Understand our language
• Understand the rules to become a citizen
This is not about ethnic purity, and American's are not against people coming here to better their lives. But to ignore this issue is national suicide. The open border crowd and the global government crowd are way off base here. If we continue to follow these individuals we will lose much of our liberties.We have people in La Raza that are openly speaking of a Hispanic revolution and retaking the west, We have to seek these people out and call them out on there behavior. I guess they did not like the millions the united states paid mexico for the land after beating them in the mexican american war. We won we really did not need to pay for the land yet we did. We have hate speech coming from certain sectors of these illegal immigrants that will only lead to racial tensions, and civil unrest. So for those who are standing against the states right to protect themselves I cannot disagree more.
The Illegal’s unwillingness to learn of American history, the unwillingness to learn the language, and the abuse of our services and the lowering of the standard of living has reached a boiling point. If it is about coming here to work and send money home them we have work Visas, if it is about Mexico’s is getting rid of the unwanted people (Northern Mexicans) who the People in Mexico City view as racially impure. The United States is being used by Mexico as its human landfill and this must stop. The problem is with Mexico, and the corruption, and the Mexican economy is in shambles. We cannot maintain our standard of living and lower ourselves to Mexico’s level and still hold true to what America stands for.
Arizona has the right to enforce its laws; Nevada has the right to enforce its laws. Get over the racial crap. I am not feeling guilty about this is any way shape or form. If we do nothing this will develop into a war, it has already developed into a war of words.
