No one I know wants to grant amnesty to lawbreakers, no matter how many sob stories they tell the authorities. Why isn't the focus placed on fixing "Corrupt" Mexico/wherever rather than allowing criminals to have a free ride, reproduce, drain the $$, trash a neighborhood, and provide easy cannon fodder for the next war ?

70% of the population of AZ SUPPORTS this law, how many signatures do you think they'll really get and if it ever did make it on a ballot it would fail miserably. They're just trying to delay the inevitable, time to go home criminals.

Great point, Peggy Anne

If the Illegal Lovers and the actual Illegals would spend as much time and energy "fixing" the problems in Mexico rather than demonstrating and demanding in the United States . . . this would be a non-issue.

Both Mccain and Kyl have been sitting in Washington for decades doing nothing about it.

Enforcement on the Border has doubled in the last year the Border Patrol is doing a much better job than for the last decade

Referendum could delay Arizona immigration law to 2012
Oh so Andrew Chavez has a hand in this huh? makes sense. he is probably an anchor baby himself.

Probably got a decent education, free healthcare, welfare, food and a solid understanding of what it really takes to govern and then......he scurried back down Venezuela-way and became such a wonderful leader and contribution to global society!
Product of his American Dream.......I suppose?

Gotta respect that?

Apparently, some do.

What they did under Bush was divert a billion dollars to Defense Contractors for a """Virtual Fence""" that was an abject failure and now has to be torn down, diverting more money from real enforcement.

Maybe the citizens of Mexico who are living here could understand better if we just adopt the same immigration laws their country has.

If you had a clue what you are saying you would know that most illegals coming in from Mexico these days are not Mexican. They are from guatamala, Costa rica , El Salvadore and a laundry list of evenm poorer countries. Many spent money on false Mexican Documents so that if they are caught they are only sent back top Mexico rather than all the way home
