With the pending new law, employers are signing up to be able to verify status of all their emploees - as a result, many of those here illegally are, in fact, leaving - many are going "back home".

I support Arizona's new law and feel that other states will soon follow.

Agreed! That is what is scary. Most of them are not likely going back to their home countries, and instead, are moving to other states who do not need or want them at all.

Why is someone who is against illegal immigration racist? Please explain. Personally, I think we need to know who is entering our country no matter what their race.

Is Mexican even considered a "race"? I thought it was a term used to described someone's nationality. Who is it really that is presuming that someone who is in the US illegally is a Mexican? If someone is opposed to illegal immigration, isn't the person who is accusing them of racism really the one who is stereotyping? Hypothetically speaking, if millions of people from another country that is not Mexico, say, Germany or Indonesia, entered and reside in our country illegally, wouldn't we be just as opposed to them for the sake of our sovereignity and self determination and not because of an "us vs. them" mentality?
