In case they are deported, Becerra said, families have backup plans.
"If we were to be taken to Mexico, we would have a job over there just in case," Becerra said. "Mexico is a difficult place to live right now, but we still have to have plans so we can have a life over there."

OMFG, ONE state is actually trying to enforce our immigration laws? The horror. Next thing you know the state will try enforcing laws against burglary, robbery and rape. How unfair is that to the poor innocent criminals trying to get ahead? (or a piece?).

Are we suppose to feel sorry for these people? The guy profiled in the article still owns a business here and whines that he has less time for his kids. Um, why did he make the decision to have children while in the country illegally?

And once again, we see a photo of that disgusting sign "Stop separating families". No one is "separating families" but the illegals themselves. If they were decent parents, they would take their anchor babies with them when they get deported.

What is this guy doing here when he says he has a job waiting for him in Mexico?

You all seem to miss the message. Or maybe you don't. The people discussed are Hispanics not illegals.

So are you into giving Hispanics a hard time for being Hispanic?

It appears Alabama is reverting to type and has found a new minority to denigrate. And you folks approve?

Nope, we just aren't being tricked by the media tactic of using the phrase Hispanic or immigrant for illegal aliens. They were the target of Alabama's legislation, not legal residents or citizens. The man profiled in the article received his visa in 2012 and it's good for three years; it's either already expired or will expire in two months. He admits he doesn't have a green card. He is breaking the law by continuing to stay.

You missed the next lines?

"The couple soon will be able to apply for permanent residency. Five years after that, they can apply to be U.S. citizens"

The other gal was a citizen.

Face it. Alabama is after Hispanics...not illegals. And you approve?

^Exactly! The article also talks about his illegal alien friends who fled AL when they got tough on illegals and are now coming back but are nervous. Why would they be "nervous" if they are here legally? And if they are here illegally, then, yes, they should be "nervous". In fact they need to leave the country.
