How DARE these other states (or even the POTUS for that matter) seek to bring down another state's sovereign rights to govern as they see fit?

It is up to the Arizona legislature to make laws to govern their own citizens. It is not up to other states to do this (all federal/state conflicts being equal yada yada) and these protests and so called boycotts just serve to make those states look foolish in the extreme.

Perhaps Az should start telling oh, let me think, Ca and others how to run THEIR states?

What happened to ...

The Ten Commandments?

The United States Constitution?

Government working for YOU?

America as we know it is extinct.

We're being told what to do and we happily take orders.

Well, you know, whenever they feel like it, they can bully people.

The Constitution prevents individual states from making laws affecting national issues, like immigration laws. The Constitution also calls for the separation of the Church and state. You should try reading it some time. If you don't like America, you are free to leave. No one is forcing you to stay here.

I agree. Seems like a lot has fallen by the wayside as they say. Why should the states be any different.

The older I get it seems the government just keeps getting bigger. Scary.

Uh, what? Wrong on all counts. YOU try picking up a book on The United States of America once in a while. Good god.

Leave? LOL, that line again? I love America, despite the direction it's heading into. Why don't YOU leave? You obviously want to turn America into some socialist country.

You just said that the America you knew is extinct. So why haven't you left?. When did I say anything about socialism? You can pass 50 Arizona laws in every state, Latinos are here to stay. Better learn Espanol.

Here is a perfect example of today's typical person of U.S. origin; an arrogant sheep who takes it laying down and like it.

Kid, I'm a red-blooded American. I don't run when things get tough unlike you, I stay on my ground and fight for it. That's the difference between you wimps and us true Americans.

Spanish? English, mothafuker, I speak it.

WRONG !

Separation of church and state was mentioned in a letter from Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists....not the Constitution.

And of course, Article 1, section 8 ( I believe) does mention "states rights" and the limitations of the feds...so I'll do some research on "states rights" to see what they are...
