It's really puzzling as to why Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer decided to **** off the entire Hispanic population of her state by signing a bill that basically legislates racial profiling but does nothing to actually address the problem of illegal immigration. The idea behind it was to use legislation to solve the "problem" of illegals, the crimes they commit and the strain on the state's system rather than just fixing the porous border between Arizona and Mexico.

I mean, she's not as ditzy as Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, but it was a dumb political move nonetheless. All that notwithstanding, the new law, which kicks in after 90 days, barring any successful legal challenges, presents an opportunity to bring together the African American and Hispanic communities, healing long-strained relations between the two.

I guess I'm missing something here. I was not aware that there were that many illegal "African Americans" in the US.

The usual response to these stories ALWAYS involve attacks on the people of the large and diverse country of Mexico.

You're missing something, you just don't have a clue what it is.

Oh boy are we on the same page...yes I'm tired of the same thing too. Some of my biggest supporters are in fact African or African American.

Yes, you sure do. Check the numbers of Africans in our country that are illegal.

there is a difference between Africans and African Americans (blacks). By definition African Americans are Americans and hence not illegal.

You know that and I know that...........just that certain pro illegal alien apologists 'cannot' see the difference.
