It's OUR country. WE get to make the laws.

Poll: Most support Arizona immigration law - UPI.com

Want to reform immigration laws?

2. SECURE THE BORDER

3. PUNISH EMPLOYERS WHO HIRE ILLEGALS

4. EXPAND LEGAL IMMGRATION

Oh, wait. I forgot number 1:

1. THROW OUT OUR CURRENT GUTLESS POLITICIANS --- OF BOTH PARTIES --- WHO HAVEN'T THE COURAGE TO ENACT 2, 3, AND 4.

The "gutless" won't even comment on the AZ bill. They won't put themselves anywhere near it.
Pathetic really.

I'm all for this bill but I'm just wondering could there be anyone who was born in the USA who cannot prove their identity and nationality?

When I worked for the Department of State in the passport agency I do recall a man who did not have a birth certificate because the state hall of records burned down and he didn't have any way of proving his identity or citizenship. I think he could have used a baptismal record or something to prove he was in the USA and he had to get many affidavits to prove who he was. Also school records played a part in getting this man his passport. It's not likely to happen a million times but everyone doesn't have a photo ID or birth certificate in this country. Yes, common sense should prevail when we're talking about this issue of illegals and deportation, but what if you're a citizen and have no way to prove your identity? What about children who don't have a photo ID?

Bad news for the Democrats. No wonder Obama took immigration reform off the desk, he knows he's on the losing side of the battle.

Those cases are usually far and few inbetween and more than likely they have resolved how to identify themselves. It's not like this is something new and revolutionary.

You're wrong. We need to ask Shakira - she is smart and beautiful, and she has gone to PHX to speak with the mayor.

She asked Gov. Brewer to meet with her eminent self but the gov was busy being a gov...drats.

Until we hear what Shakira thinks about all this, we'll all be caught in limbo.

/sarcasm off/

All those troops are coming home from Iraq - station them along all the borders....
Give them something meaningful to do....

Illegal means ILLEGAL !!
Either you come into the country legally or you are invading our nation & should be shot on sight....
You can't have it both ways...

Did you see the amount of flashing cameras that were there when she gave a press conference? Jeezus...you'd think she was a head of state.

Perhaps we should all ask why Shakira, who doesn't even LIVE in the USA has an opinion about a state she knows nothing about.

Where was she when Phoenix became the second-highest kidnapping city in the world? Did she go offer condolences to Robert Krentz's family (the rancher who was murdered)? Did she send some flowers to the officer shot yesterday by an AK-47-carrying drug smuggler?

Does she have an opinion about the illegals coming to Arizona and keeping wages low and crime high which disproportionately affects the LEGAL Hispanic workers?
