I fully support AZ and hope for other states to follow their lead.

Arizona's controversial new immigration law probably would withstand legal challenges on constitutional grounds, according to a panel of three University of San Diego law professors. Professor Lawrence Alexander, who teaches constitutional law at USD, said that argument would fail because the Arizona law does not conflict with federal immigration law. The state law is only seeking to enforce the federal law, he said.

"I don't see anything in this law that is going to fail a challenge on the grounds of federal supremacy," Alexander said. Alexander was a panelist along with professors Donald Dripps, a scholar on criminal law, and Maimon Schwarzschild, who specializes in constitutional law.

Under. Homeowner, parent, taxpayer, resident of a border state, and my family has been hit with property crimes perpetrated by migrants.

I oppose most of the current legislation because it tramples constitutional rights. Immigration is very complex and I don't see it as a purely black and white issue.

I do believe in the humanity of all persons.

Not a scientific poll or anything, just wondering if most people who feel very strongly about this illegal immigration topic are more from one particular generation or if it tends to be equally divided among all age groups.

Thanks.

Over 60 want illegal immigration to stop
kids over 40, all 3 of them are appalled at the number of illegals in our country
grandkids 20-30 all want to see the borders secure and illegals returned to thier country.

Does that answer your question?

Being human has nothing to do with our right to have and to enforce our immigration laws.

Over. Against illegal entry to this country no matter what country you are coming from. Pro legal immigration providing you are skilled, educated, healthy and have a job in place.

3 children who are under 30, over 30, and who feel the same way.

I'm referring to the nerve, audacity, and unmitigated gall of some that express a desire to militarize our borders and shoot to kill those crossing unarmed and defenseless. Also, those that would withhold humanitarian aid when they suspect one is an undocumented migrant, effectively choosing death for those individuals. To me that is beyond the pale, immoral, and unethical. I find it disgusting and far worse than someone crossing a border in terms of societal problems.

I'm a proud liberal/progressive. I do not care if "many liberals" or no liberals support SB 1070. The media is not liberal. It is corporate and supports corporate interests. I am an independent thinker and make up my own mind. In contrast, I see many on both sides that parrot talking points.
