I thought this was interesting. Since the federal govt is doing nothing about the illegal aliens, states and small towns are going to great lengths to find ways to enforce the laws. I think this is great but a shame that they have to go through all this. But still a great start!

Laws such as these have contributed to a rise of 80% citizenship applications by green card holders in the Dallas area. Every immigrant, legal or illegal feel these laws are harmful to their welfare.

The truth is that only the illegals are really bothered by these laws.

An increase of citizenship applications by 70%-80% nationwide, 1.6 million persons, is an excellent indicator the laws are felt as oppressive by legal immigrants.

Well get rid of illegals, and then they would have nothing to worry about.

It is not but maybe they should try to talk to the people who are supposedly making it hard on them, the illegals. Tough luck is all I will say.

Huh? That's exacly what they concern themselves with, because they have relatives, neighbors, employees, friends who are illegal and they want them to be free of discrimination.

Tough luck once again. Illegals should be discriminated against. They asked for it by breaking any and every law they deem they want to to get what they want.
