Sounds like they did it legally. This isn't about legal immigration. This is about illegal aliens in America.

I'm against illegal immigration but that law is just racist.
Now that's an Oxymoron if I've ever heard one.

Of course there are illegal aliens in this country from all over the world but what you fail to grasp is that the police won't be stopping anyone for just walking down the street. Regardless of your ethnicity the only way you will be stopped is during the infraction of a law. When valid I.D. is provided there will be no questions about status in this country. The only ones in jeapardy would be those in our country illegally regardless of who you are and that is because they wouldn't be able to provide valid I.D. such as a DL or state I.D. I don't understand the constant spin on this Arizona law.

We do this for LEGAL immigrants. We have laws against illegal immigration and so does every other country in the world including Mexico today. What was acceptable around WWII has nothing to do with what is acceptable today.

Something just doesn't sound right here. I think we have a Troll trying to pick an argument.
