If Hispanic leaders are calling for Hispanics to boycott Arizona, then the law is working as intended and they will be no more illegal's..
Simple solution, good work, Arizona....!!

I'd say a counter-"boycott" is in order. SUPPORT Arizona in every way possible.

Lets not forget the landlords who know who they are renting to.
Lets not forget Joe to cheap to hire a licensed contractor.
Lets not forget the criminal. The illegal. Do we forgive the car thief and only punish the chop shop?

Things are really upside down when the police asking a person, who has just broken the law, to show their green card or proof of immigration status, is so outrageous that a boycott is in order.

Arizona is just now becoming serious by enforcing the laws that they already have in place.

"The administration only discovered immigration enforcement over the past few months, five years into its existence, and only then because they realized that a pro-enforcement pose was necessary to get their amnesty plan approved."

"the Bush Administration focused its resources on undocumented workers rather than high value targets like unscrupulous employers and dangerous criminals."

Ironically, Obama and co. have been much more aggressive about workplace enforcement:

Immigrant advocates say immigration enforcement worse under Obama
bush was definitely lame on immigration but here is barack obama's record as a senator:

"After an illegal alien has entered our country the next line of defense is interior enforcement. Currently employers are not required to verify that an applicant or employee is legally allowed to work in this country. In addition, local law enforcement at the state and local level have had their hands tied when dealing with illegal aliens by not even allowing them to inquire about arrestees' citizenship status. Senator Barack Obama has worked hard to allow state and local law enforcement to help in reducing illegal immigration and to put in place workplace verification systems allowing employers to quickly verify the legal working status of their employees."
