Don't forget to mention how they helped a poor kitten on the side of the road, and started passing out rainbows and sunshine to other motorists! Being an illegal alien means you have stories written about you where when you are prosecuted for your crime, you are a "victim".

Dear Arizona Republic - Please write stories about poor bank robbers whose lives were ruined by robbing banks.

"It was 2pm, Robert Jones left his shoddy apartment with one measly gun he managed to buy with the meager money he makes, heading for the local bank that refuses to honor him with free money"

Even if SB1070 is passed and allowed to exist, how many [more] people do you think Arizona LEO will deport? WAIT...AZ 1070 is not about deporting aliens, its about arresting, trying and jailing aliens. Doesnt that cost MONEY? Tax dollars?

Wait till the first 5 year bills come in...when there are Thousands of aliens in jail...costing Arizona taxpayers Millions of dollars. Smart move for a broke state.

So Az is lucky this couple is leaving, so the State doesnt have to arrest and jail them on the taxpayer's dime.

He was working for 9.80 an hour and she was a stay at home mom with three kids. What kind of assistance were they getting on the tax payer's dime?

I have zero sympathy for them. They are "victims" of their own poor decisions and illegal behavior, and so are their children. I don't care if they get deported or not, and I don't care if they feel they can't stay in Arizona. They have no business being here in the first place.

But the ones with sense enough to get out of AZ won't.

Please re-read my post. Illegal aliens in AZ are already costing the tax payers money. Arresting and deporting them will likely be more economical.

I'd gladly pay higher taxes if that meant arresting and deporting the illegals, in the long run it will pay back 10fold.
