Immigration laws are broken, unfair and inefficient! They should secure the borders. Drugs cross more than illegals in the borders. We need a comprehensive, fair and efficient immigration reform that legalizes NON-CRIMINALS, HARD WORKING, HONEST, HIGH-MORAL illegal aliens who come here just to WORK, and nothing else. Also, officials should secure even more Florida's coast from balseritos and marielitos who invade Miami who most live on welfare and cost us millions of dollars every year. I came here when I was young legally and I've on visa since then and it's extremely unfair these balseritos get their papers in less than a year coming here illegaly on balsas (boatlifts). Very unfair for the people who came here with a visa or the ones who still waiting for a visa in their countries. Even more unfair if you came here legally and have to wait years of years to get a green card

Sorry you have issues with "balseritos" or those who are Cuban nationals but if they arrive here they are considered political refugees under the Cuban Readjustment Act of 1964.
It isn't the "balsaritos" or Cubans who are murdering hundreds on our border due to narco trafficking.
As for them being on welfare I think you are quite mistaken since the Cuban community in Miami takes very good care of those who come in rafts which by the way is a very minute number to begin with!
In case you didn't know Cuba is still a Communist nation that jails disidents, opponents of the Government, gays, drug abusers, etc.

Nobody seems to be concerned about illegals, or terroists, crossing the Canadian border.

Actually they are. The US gov has been more strict with ALL border crossings. You used to not even need a passport to travel to Canada or the Bahamas now you do.

As for Florida taking in this law I am ALL FOR IT! If your not an ILLEGAL immigrant then there is nothing to be afraid about. I look hispanic if I get stopped for speeding and a cop wants to check to make sure I am a legal go ahead. This law does NOT give police the right to stop people that look like they can be illegals it gives them the right to check if they are legal after stopping them for something else like a speeding ticket, drinking in public etc..

And to those saying let the people not breaking the law stay, guess what they did break the law. All illegal immigrants are exactly that illegal and every day they are in the US they are breaking the law. This country and its states spend way too much money on illegal immigrants and until the United States takes a more strict stance on it, it will continue to happen. Look at Mexico immigrantion laws or Venezuelas immigration laws MUCh more strict then US law. Both republican canidates for govenour now support the law I expect a Republican to win in November and this will be a leading reason. Most people in the US are tired of poor immigration laws and so are most people in Florida.

Canadian illegals are not coming here to commit crimes, spread diseases and steal from us all like those coming from the Mexican border.

Something like 23% of our prisons are filled with illegal terrorist from Mexico, not Canada.

We need to be watching all borders, but the Mexican border is where the problems are, not the Canadian border.

When you look up the facts you will see that the Mexican border is the problem, not the Canadian border.

When was the last time you saw a Canadian border patrol agent with 46 clamps in his head from rocks being thrown at him like you have the Mexican border? How about the agent who lost site in both of his eyes from a rock hitting him in the head? How about a rancher who was murdered in cold blood along the Mexican border by illegal terrorist Mexicans?

I'm against the cuban marielitos invasion simply because they also invade this country, the only difference is that they get their papers no matter if they were murderers, prostitutes or thieves back in Cuba... most Hialeah and heavy Cuban neigborhoods live on welfare or witchcraft (santeria), most don't work because they had never done it in their lifes. Castro fed them and here welfare does. Same thing, same lifestyle.

Actually, there are a real national security concerns with the Canadian border and Muslim extremists. A few years back, border patrol in Washington state picked up a guy who had come down from British Columbia with the idea of committing a terrorist act in the Seattle area, and there's also speculation that the Detroit and Buffalo border crossings are also locations where Muslim extremists are able to far too easily enter the country. The Detroit-Windsor, ON crossing is particularly problematic because of the large Muslim Arab population in the area, and sadly, a small percentage of the Dearborn crowd is open to being radicalized by people who come into the area by way of Tornoto and such.

You don't have a clue about what you are talking about beyond a few distorted talking points. I won't really bother formally responding because what would be the point.

Kind of a side note. There was a job near me that was really going strong. The I was a bunch of cops there and emergency vehicles. A day or two later I asked a person who lives next door what happened there. They said a worker had been hurt and before anybody could arrive the rest workers took off leaving the injured worker after a passer buy call 911. I have a feeling no one on the job was legal. This was like 5 weeks ago and there hasn't been any work done there since. Bricks, steel and materials are scatted all over the job but no workers. Strange, heck, maybe even the builder was illegal. This really doesn't have much to do with the thread but I found it interesting. I can't believe no one hasn't made off with all the building stuff the job is pretty much abandon.
