The city councils of both Arizona cities have voted to sue the State of Arizona over the new immigration law.

Arizona immigration law: 2 city councils to sue state

The state will buckle any day now. It cannot handle lawsuits from two major population centers in the state.

Interesting. I remember when AZ refused to acknowledge Dr. King's birthday and the 1992 tourist boycott. They changed their minds in a hurry.

lawyers will be the downfall of america, the citizens no longer rule the land, lawyers do. civil rights law has been used extensively to successfully attack immigration and criminal law.

Want to bet they are Mexican? Now why would we expect our elected officals (or Mexicans by the looks of it) to respect the rule of law.

Being that more and more states are looking at their own versions of SB1070..........I suspect that Tucson and Flagstaff will back down.

Again: miamiman; watch the ECONOMY............there are way too many people out of work to coddle a bunch of losers (illegal aliens) who have no right to be here in the first place.

Apples and oranges here: Dr King fought for Civil Rights for all Americans---------illegal aliens have the same rights as any other criminal at best.

Besides: hostility is growing against the mere presense of said ilegals.

10 States are looking for the same relief, some how, some way they will start to stick. Illegals and their cheer leaders are just going to have to get used to it. If nothing else the sentiment has turned extremely nasty and that's not turning back regardless of what anyone "sues" for.

We tax payers have been on the defensive long enough, it's time for a little offense.

As a former resident of Tucson for 17 years up until recently, I can say that the Tucson city council are nothing but a bunch of liberal clowns who have been successful only in making themselves look stupid. They cannot even successfully build a new convention hotel that has been talked about now for years. They are corrupt, have mismanaged MILLIONS of dollars to the point of being broke, are almost at the point of pushing their biggest moneymaker (Tucson Mineral and Gem Show) out of town, and their "vision" of Rio Nuevo has been nothing but a boondoggle. They have done next to nothing to help lure new corporations to the city to help create "good" jobs. I used to be proud to say I was from Tucson, but now I am just embarrassed.

Do you know why so many people opposed the MLK day? It had nothing to do with race...well, maybe with some people...but the biggest reason was that they didn't see any reason for yet another holiday for government employees. Admittedly the people who used that reason were full of sour grapes because it didn't benefit THEM but still that was the reason they gave. Unfortunately, at the time, we had the most bigotted, prejudiced and racist governor the state has ever had. Or at least he was the most vocal and most were glad when he was impeached. I've often wondered if the state had voted down a day honoring a white man would there have been such an outcry? Possibly, but they couldn't have claimed "racism". I voted FOR the holiday. But I have never had a paid holiday because of it.

The MLK argument, that so many people keep bringing up, reminds me of a bad marriage where the same old argument gets brought up over and over no matter what the NEW issues are.
