That's good and I believe in federal responsibility to deal with immigration, however state/local LEO can follow and question about immigration status.

Why is this article calling it an anti-"immigrant" law? It isn't! Figures, there are far too many liberals in the SC and one in particular that is sympathetic to illegals based on ethnicity.

Not every immigrant is targeted by the law, but everyone targeted by the law is an immigrant.

Well, maybe when a State decides it wants to usurp Federal Law on immigration, it's considered an anti-immigration effort?

Even if they were usurping Federal Laws that still makes it an anti-illegal immigration law not an anti-immigrant law!! What kind of reasoning is that? Alabama nor any other state is trying to get rid of legal immigrants. There is a difference between the two groups you know.

None of the anti-ILLEGAL immigration laws put forward by any of our states are usurping Federal Laws they are just mirroring them. The Feds have failed us on border security and they are even allowing illegal immigrants to remain here when our laws dictate they should be deported. What are our states to do? Don't tell me about the stupid Feds!

"Illegal" immigrants are also immigrants. A law targeting Catholics would be a religious discrimination law even if it only targets a small subset of the religious.

Yes, and it is important to decipher between legal immigrants and illegals. Calling the latter plain ole immigrants does not do that and of course it is intentional so as to make it look that they are just innocent "immigrants". The two groups are completely different. The pro-illegals love blurring those lines.

Uh; what's "misguided" is why laws like that aren't in every US state. Sheesh!
