Excellent!! And California politicians are gaining their state much less sympathy for when the economic collapse happens and they find themselves begging for the federal government bailouts.

These are the lamer politicians who have done absolutely nothing for the American citizens they were elected to serve. Just wait until they have to tell the citizens that there's no more money for unemployment handouts.

California politcians should have no travel. They need to actually do something for the the citizens of California whose unemployment rates are only going up.

Plus they need to save this money for the huge onslaught of illegals soon to arrive.

You can boycott anything you want. I've been boycotting WALMART since they declared war on American suppliers. I haven't noticed any effect but I still boycott them

You want them, now you can pay for them.
Though I grew up in the Bay Area, I no longer live in California. Up here in Washington state, we even have an illegal immigration problem.

Something should be done about it. It's just that this law goes about it the wrong way..

The focus should be almost 100% on the employers. Never mind though, I'm talking to myself...it's much easier to hate poor brown people and let the fat cats slide..

Drastic measures, in drastic times.

They have needed to go after employers since 1986 and the passage of the Reagan bill, like the bill specifies. They have let it slide so long, you have a once silent economic disaster, becoming an earthquake, hurricane, and volcano, all going off at the same moment.

Drastic measures, for drastic times!


Blaze a trail Arizona, blaze a trail!

I thought the right would be happy they're cutting down on big gubment worker paid vacations.
And you want to talk about spin as you spun this 180 degrees. How is banning someone from using their paid vacation where they want to even constitutional? How does that crack down on the amount spent on paid vacations? Since they are not allowed to go to Arizona they will not take a vacation at all? Talk about a moronic argument, this one takes the cake.

I live in Arizona, and we are a resilient lot when the stakes are high. Most of the people I know are doing just fine. We will take care of our own. It's karma time. So what if we have to tighten up the old belt buckle a notch or two ? A lot of people 'round these parts could stand to drop a lb or two. (or 40) Giving up booze, cancer sticks, and chaw could put xtra cash in the old pocket. We WILL survive, so go ahead and boycott. Make yourselves useless..those nay sayers amongst you.

I have more respect for the people of AZ as a result of this law. American Patriots who see this nation as a nation of laws, not a nation of scofflaws.

Have a slice for me too!

But where were you when there was talk about the fence or having the actual border itself enforced?

The open borders side wanted their unlimited supplies of cheap labor and wanted nothing at all done about very massive illegal immigration.

The federal government has not done the job it was given to do, and it's still not creating all those 5 million jobs for unemployed Americans while it promises illegals quick citizenship and their "family reunification" so that many millions more will be soon arriving.
