I honestly wish the Federal Government would get off their butts and actually do something so AZ and other states aren't forced to do it themselves; however, AZ has asked for help for quite some time now. As you know, those requests have fallen on deaf ears. All we want to do is curb the drug trafficking, human trafficking, and crime.

Texas is a real possibility, and if Perry doesn't man up to the situation then Friedman will gladly take over and close the border. This BS is coming to an end.

There was a big backlash against illegals when I lived in Virginia so maybe there. I would guess a southern state because most of them have a high rate of illegal immigration and they usually have a lot of citizens working low skilled jobs that have to compete with the illegals.

Similar bills are already being considered in other states. Illegal immigration is no longer simply a border issue, it impacts the entire country. It is now out of control in most states, and citizens are demanding action.

There will be a domino effect. As illegals flee states and enter others, the receiving states will then be forced to enact their own laws. If the Feds would do their job and enforce our current laws, illegals would be hard-pressed to find refuge anywhere in this country. Until our laws are enforced, each state must do what is necessary to protect their citizens.

The AZ law has opened an illegal immigration Pandora’s Box. The problem can no longer be swept under the rug.

Arizona isn't the first to clamp down, Oklahoma already had.

What will happen now is that states like California with very high unemployment rates are putting out the word that any illegal foreigner is now welcome to relocate over to California and the breaking point is going to be reached that much sooner.

No California politician cares about Americans living in California so no jobs for Americans are being created, and at some point the state budget will make it difficult to keep the Americans well fed and content and quiet by doling out the unemployment checks.

As more unemployed illegals flow out of Arizona - and Oklahoma into California, how do the politicians tell the Americans the state can no longer provide it's citizens the checks but has plenty of money to provide the illegals everything they need?

Just how long do the open border proponents think this can continue?

Tough call here.

Certain states are not likely to pass laws since they have very few illegal aliens to begin with i.e. the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming, Maine, etc.

I do sense that California will come down hard very soon..............something is going to happen and the people will say: no more.
