Comparing criminals in jails and illegal criminals walking our streets is completely different. Those jail houses keep those who have committed crimes detained and secluded away from the rest of us. I have no problem supporting that, but I refuse to support people entering this country illegally and being allowed the same type of benefits as those who waited and were allowed to enter this country legally.

It's a sad that the State of Arizona had to go to these lengths due to the lack of responsibility from the federal government.

Yet, not one criminal law has been ignored as a measure to prevent blacks from being racially profiled. The laws are still enforced, and the courts deal with accusations of racial profiling on an individual basis.

Likewise, innocent people have been convicted and incarcerated. Yet, we do not ignore our laws simply because 'some' may be unjustly accused. Why should people who are in this country illegally be afforded more protection from the law than our own citizens?

I thought Texas seceded, so our Bill of Rights doesn't apply there anyway. Usually States Rights mean someone will lose theirs

Noone can do that because it isn't there. They ignore the actual wording of the bill because it doesn't fit into the lies and propaganda they have bought into. I posted the link to the actual law and I still challenge anyone to read it and point out the racist parts to me. They cannot.

"... that you know." Alive, think of the politicians in power, the people in the cities, and the people along the US-Mexico border.

I can't view your profile, so I would like to ask what metropolitan area you are in.

By "Close to the border" I am referring to those in the Rio Grande Valley and in the Laredo and El Paso areas.

There are legal Mexican residents and Mexican-Americans who believe that illegal immigration should be more strongly opposed by the feds - but the question is: do they support the Arizona bill? Why or why not?
