They are trying to destroy you for standing up for your rights.
Guess everybody has rights but you.
Only they count and I really wish you would start a secret underground and put them all on a bus at the border.
Give them a hundred dollar bill and send them to San Francisco.
Think of all the money you would save.

Fully support this law. Something has got to be done, upholding the law is a good start.

Love it. So true. People can "support" the moronic legislation all they want from Montana and Idaho. That and a buck will get you a cup of coffee.

From a "fiscally conservative" standpoint, this legislation is pure garbage.

LOL and they will save over $1 BILLION annually if they get rid of all the illegal immigrants. The schools will be better. The hospitals will be better and the crime will go way down. A win win for Arizona!

Maybe you should read it before you post

I sure don't see your type fighting for Americans' rights never to have to obtain or provide a drivers license, or produce proof of liability insurance when driving.

It seems "rights" are only an issue with it's about foreign citizens coming and living here illegally. Why should an American have to have a drivers license or any kind of ID if illegals can do whatever they like and never have to have any ID?

I'll believe your sincerity when I see you demand that no American ever be made to show proof of identity.

You should really write fiction, you've got quite the imagination.

I don't support the law. (Please don't waste your time with some hyperbolic accusation of me being for illegal immigration). I think we all agree that something needs to be done regarding reform of illegal immigration.

My main problem with the law is the increase of police power. We have moved the standard from "probable cause" to suspicion. Suspicion seems much more highly subjective. The police are caught abusing their power (it seems) more and more frequently. Why give them more unchecked power?

I supported the Law before Ariz passed a restatement of the Law.

What then do you propose be done about illegal immigration?

Or do you support stopping illegals only at the very border itself but once they've made it over, they're home free and are never to to be questioned, if they are pulled over for speeding, they cannot be asked for a drivers license? They cannot be made to show proof of legal residence when being hired?

Do you demand the same right for Americans to never have to produce any kind of ID?
