There were Mexicans and Apaches living here before any Americans although the Spanish and Apache got here about the same time
No, I mean that Mexico has never HAD a state called Arizona........

same old tired arguments I see, is that all you got?

Okay, for your sake - as you stated Mexico CEDED what is now the state of Az to the USA.......that means it is NO LONGER Mexico's - was that clear enough for you?

Living on the border, I get a kick out of you lecturing me about it.
Most migrant workers go back and forth regularly and don't want to be US Citizens. Stand out on I-10 before Christmas and watch them heading south, oh that's right, you are thousands of miles away.

What does you living on the border have to do with our right to have and to enforce our immigration laws? I am lecturing you? About what? If these migrant workers are going back and forth without the proper papers then they are violating our immigration laws whether or not they want to be citizens is irrelevant. So illegal aliens or other Mexicans are heading south for Christimas. What has that do with anything? Do you have some kind of point to make at all in here?

I don't recall telling you how to live - just addressing your invalid "arguments"

I DO worry about "where I live" which happens to be the USA not some weird realm in your head where illegal immigration doesn't exist.

I don't know why you think only those who live in border states have a right to have an opinion on the matter.

If you don't like what America is becoming, you can work to change it. You're also free to leave.

Oh do share with us what America is becoming. I can hardly wait. Americans don't need to leave but illegal aliens and their supporters should.

Then arrest the OWNERS of the Meat Packing Plants and Chicken Processing Plants that employ them. Lock up the workers and a hundred new workers will show up tomorrow. Here in Cochise County we sent an OWNER to jail for 2 years under the existing FEDERAL LAW. There is no need for more laws just arrest the employers

Many employers have already been fined and jailed. Don't you read the news at all? I think the illegal employees should be deported and many of them have been. What will stop both the employer and the illegal employee is e-verify mandated in every workplace but the pro-illegal sympathizers fight it tooth and nail. Taking away all incentives for illegal aliens to come here will do the trick. No jobs, no benefits and no instant citizens plus we need to militarize our border.

Mormons if you check the stats for Maricopa County, I don't really find the birthrate for muslims in Maricopa County scary
