Dodgers are currently operating in Glendale, Giants in Scottsdale, A's in Phoenix, Angels in Tempe and Padres in Peoria, Arizona.

That is making an immediate statement.
Yes this boycott has long legs if it really gets going. For better or worse, the liberal states & media are making significant threats of writing Arizona off the map. Professional sports don't like to cross any boycott lines and nor do TV sponsers. This is a very expensive decision that Arizona made. And political & economic consequences have to be a sobering thought [organizations as diverse as the Chamber of Commerce and Democratic party are against the new law].

I've lived in several countries where citizens and natural residents are required to have identification on them at all times.

I've been carded in Brazil several times. They do it to everyone. I've presented by Brazilian "Greencard" and went on my merry way-no problem.

My parents immigrated legally to the US in the 1960s. It was an arduous process and they were dirt poor and wanted to come to the US to provide a better life for the families. Except they waited their turn and when it was deemed appropriate to the US govt to allow them entry into the United States, they were granted visas and they came.

I don't see how the people cheating the system by coming in illegally are entitled to do so-even more ridiculous is that their illegal entry into the US is met with glee by some.

Furthermore, I love how the media talks about the immigration problem but rarely call the problem by its correct name. There is no problem with Immigration-the issue is with ILLEGAL Immigration.

And then the kicker is if you believe that we as a nation, should actually have the final say in who comes here-such people are branded racists.

Illegals and their misguided supporters act like being in the United States is a human right?

As if.
Those of us who know firsthand "legal immigration" consider it an affront that "illegal immigrants" talk about their "rights".
If you get pulled over by a cop, what do they ask you for? Your identification. Big surprise there!
The AZ law mimics the US federal law. Maybe N-dude would like the U.S. and AZ to adopt the Mexican laws against illegal immigration. Now, if anyone wants to see some harda$$ consequences, I suggest they read what Mexico has on their books. For Calderon to criticize AZ is the height of hypocrisy.
China is every bit of guilty of imperialism as the U.S. (as claimed on this thread). Let's try an experiment by going over there and whining and screaming about how we should be able to live where we want and dammit! Shanghai is the place! What do you think the Chinese authorities would have to say about that? If you want to see the inside of a small, dark space for the next 30 years (if you're that lucky!) go right ahead and prove to yourself the point that any other nation is better than the U.S.
When you understand the reality, this is one very tolerant nation.
