This is in America people, AMERICA! This is happening NOW. Back this state up, EVERYONE-even those pro-amnesty. This is your State too! Phoenix used to be an envied State. Not anymore, but they are trying like hell to make it beautiful and safe again.
Quote:
The state abused by Jon Stewart as the “meth lab” of democracy has been forced to deal alone with a problem created and then ignored by the national government. Arizona’s answer is not perfect, but it is not unreasonable either – and should jerk the national conscience to attention.

Imagine yourself a landowner in southern Arizona. The border between San Diego and Tijuana is now effectively fenced, so the flow of illegal immigration has been diverted to your front yard. Every morning you wake up to a hillock of garbage: plastic bottles, food remains, human urine and feces. If you try to police your land, you put your life at risk: Last month, Arizona rancher Rob Krentz was murdered on his own property, likely by a marijuana-smuggling illegal migrant.
Quote:
Mexico’s drug war has reached into Arizona cities. Federal authorities capture an average of 1.5 tons of marijuana per day in Arizona. Drug-related kidnappings, tortures, and murders of illegals by illegals have made Phoenix one of the most violent cities in the United States. Illegals crowd hospital emergency rooms, crash uninsured cars, and transform overbuilt neighborhoods into rooming house slums. Their children have the right, under a 1982 Supreme Court decision, to attend local schools at local expense, crowding the classrooms of native-born children, whose educations are further undermined when substantial numbers of their classmates cannot speak English.
Quote:
States and counties that have strengthened enforcement have seen declines in the population of non-English-speaking students in local schools (another good proxy for the illegal immigrant population).

Arizona’s law seeks a similar effect. It’s no substitute for federal enforcement. But it’s a big improvement over all the loose talk of amnesty. If you find the measure excessive, don’t blame the state. Blame those in Washington who made state action necessary – as the only alternative to federal inaction.

In defence of Arizona, when the Fed absolutely refuses to do their job then someone has to.

You know these boycotts really upset me. Here we have citizens pitting themselves against their fellow citizens. Aren't we supposed to the the "United" States of America? It is one thing to disagree with a law that one state has passed but it is quite another for another state, states or cities within those states to boycott them. What in the world is this country coming to? Our enemies must be laughing their behinds off.

It seems the backwards thinking of administrations of late boggle me. Boycott a State in a recession? Especially prompted by your own Statesman? Asinine and this loser needs to be chucked from office. He only shows he is NOT supporting his State but furthering it's ruin.

The state's new law targeting illegal immigrants isn't racist. It's an effort to ease the worst effects of a problem that's grown intolerable.
Once this monetary burden is reduced, a State can finally, with honest numbers, budget according to todays economic climate. Why do not ALL Americans want this? What is in it for those who oppose any enforcement of our laws to rid this country of illegal immigrants?
