Just as Science doesnt consider any data acertained from immoral or unethical practices and sources...[e.g. NAZI German scientist's data gathered from experimentation on Holocoust slaves]...Maybe we as Americans, should not allow racists to shape our laws.

It is merely your opinon who is racist and who is not in this immigration issue. As I said, just as long as the law is written within reasonable and legal guidelines it doesn't matter who wrote it or what their motives may or may not be. You prefer to attack the writer because you hate this law. Sort of like not attacking the message but the messenger instead. A sign of having no viable arguments against the "message/law". That is why your side resorts to words like racism, xenophobia, etc. There is no comparison to what the Nazi's did in relation to the actions of enforcing our immigration laws.

Oh god there's one of the buzzwords. The surest sign that someone has no argument is the use of the dreaded "Nazi" label. As long as the man wrote a reasonable, legal document then whatever he thinks personally is irrelevant, or relevant to race card players only.

Really?

You created this thread solely to badger a person. Nothing less, nothing more.

With that thinking, then you do agree that we shouldn't allow humanitarians to shape our laws .

In my opinion, supporting PEARCE is just as bad as following the Aztlan movement. They are both extremists. PEARCE is all about "divide and conquer" and his SB1070 is just another segregation or Jim Crow law.

It has forced many legal Latinos who live in Arizona to move to towns that are "low key". My family is one of them. They will not go to Phoenix unless they really need to so they are not harassed.

Of course many of those that are in support don't think about how it affects Latinos...as long as it does not affect them.

I'm so glad Ready has turned against Pearce.

Maybe you should thank all your Illegal Brethren that has FORCED Americans to move these issues to the forefront???

Has it occurred to you that the never ending invasion from South of the Border casts hard working Americans of Latino Heritage in a bad light and it has directly affected the Publics perception???

No YOU haven't given it much thought because like a lot of Mexican Americans in the Southwest I'm assuming they are 1 or 2 generations removed from Illegal Aliens and/or they have Illegal Aliens as immediate family and friends.

That IS the reason why these laws have come to pass, it is because of the support a LARGE segment of the Latino community's VERY vocal support for Illegal Aliens and the disintergration of US Sovereignity,Security and Laws caused by Illegal Immigration.

So when YOU question "WHY Latinos have moved and WHY they have to be low keyed" many in your ethnic group only have to look in the mirror for the answer.

Everybody calm down and get back on topic. Which, despite what some might be thinking, is just as on topic as many threads here.
Yac.
