so about 63% percent support it. Thats a lot higher than I expected. But who knows maybe people are starting to realize illegals are destroying this country.

The U.S. Department of Justice is challenging the law on the grounds that it conflicts with what it contends is the federal government's exclusive right to set immigration laws for the country.
Obviously the federal government (Obama and his administration) wants control to enforce the "rights of illegals", and ignore the rights of US citizens by failing to enforce the current laws on the book. The "exclusive rights" that the federal government affords illegals go beyond the rights of US citizens and people who are legally in the country.

The fact that US citizens know that their rights and laws as they actually pertain to illegals are being stomped on doesn't mean a damn thing to the Federal government. It's the "rights" of the illegals that the Federal government is concerned with. I wonder if Obama would take a different position if he didn't have family who are in the US illegally.

I don't see how Arizona is setting law. Determining if a person is here legally or not, isn't setting immigration law. The laws Arizona wants to enforce already exist.

Yes, simply enforcing existing law should resolve the problem.
