What is sad is that you think you know what your talking about

He should be standing up there saying he hears Arizona, and he is looking for a solution, and commit to a solution. He is a divider, not a uniter. He is pandering for the illegal immigrant vote and has zero credibility.

Way to go Jan Brewer. Keep up the good work.
Not only is he a divider, he is a punisher.

If you don't toe whatever ideological line he draws in the sand, you're toast. And he might be pandering for the illegal vote, but a lot of legal Hispanics in this country aren't happy the illegals flooding over the border. The GOP has a natural constituency there and I hope they understand it. I hope they pay attention to this group -

Sad isn't it ? Honestly if there was a written test like an SAT and adult had to pass in order to vote we wouldn't be in such a mess. One should only be allowed to vote on as much as they can comprehend.

LO effing L! I can't wait to read the snappy comeback/response to this.

(Too bad you can't rep more proportional to your own rep - you'd get my whole allotment for today. I'm still actually laughing out loud right now.)

I find this law cooked up by the whiteys in Phoenix comical.

I used to live an hour from the border in AZ. Lots of problems no doubt about that. However tons of people continuously exploit Mexico for cheap recreation/vacation/time shares because the currency exchange makes it possible. We also constantly benefit frm cheap goods from Mexican sweatshops.

Why do you think they're coming over into the U.S.??? Better paying jobs so they can support families, and escape from the cartels.

The violent illegals are a small minority by comparison.

If you want to deport them all, thats fine. But you're only going to make Mexicon and the border more dangerous because people will find that crime pays the bills.

Find the real sources of the problems. Whats making the Mexicans risk life and limb in the desert to get over here? I've been in that desert, it can kill you pretty quick, so what makes Mexico so bad? Do we have any influence on the lousy conditions in Mexico? Correct those problems.

Just sending them back is idiocy. You're only going to increase the recruiting base for the cartels. We don't have the funds or the manpower to make the border secure. Not a solution.
