We have always welcomed those who legally come here, as well as those who wish to legally work here or attend school here.

Just follow the law.

Folks who keep throwing this specious "hate towards immigrants" argument around are being disingenuous. All countries on the planet have the sovereign right and indeed, imperative, to protect their borders. And every nation has requirements governing citizenship.

Stop the madness. If any of us were to illegally sneak over the border of say--France, or Germany, or Switzerland--and plant ourselves there, have babies, sign up for subsidies--we all know what would happen. So stop pretending that there is something wrong with expecting folks to enter this country legally.

With the job market already oversupplied, bringing more people in that will work for less money than native born Americans, is only going to make the economy worse for the average person here.

No, it's not true! When we stop allowing legal immigrants to come here then get back with us, ok?

We don't need criminals lining up for benefits.

Arizona isn't profiling "immigrants". They want to detain and detect illegal aliens but are doing so according to the law and that doesn't include profiling. Please educate yourself on this subject and I suggest you stop dealing in emotion or whatever other motive you may have.

When my ancestors immigrated, there were no laws for immigrants from Germany. Ditto with my spouse's family from Denmark and Sweden. This business of "legal immigration" is new in this country, for about the past 100 years.

Tea party stance is to uphold the laws on the books, why is upholding our laws labeled a tea party stance , should it not be an American stance to uphold our laws , unless you think the tea party are the only people that want our laws upheld

The point is, there ARE laws for legal immigration now and they need to be followed.

Out of control migration causes short and long term problems.

Controlled migration is favorable.

Obama and the Dems have overwhelmed our system. Their standard practice, whether it be green energy or illegal aliens. Cold turkey, much suffering. As if they decided YOU need to lose weight and decided not to feed YOU anything for 3 months. The ends justify the means. No time for subtlety. the stuff of a socialist revolution is upon us. A real revolution that causes much suffering in the name of a distant future theoretical goal.

Your premise that the US is anti migration is a fantasy promoted by the D-party and obama. If you are not for open borders and distribution the distribution of wealth that follows, you are labeled xenophobic and hateful. This pre arranged plan promotes their class warfare strategy all in an attempt to socialize America.
