    The law that Arizona passed is not about racism, but is about being in this country illegally, plain and simple. I have no problem with any one who wants to come to my country and stay here.

    1. Enter the US legally.

    2. Jump through the government hoops and get all the documentation required to live here in the US.

    3. Become a citizen.

    It is not that hard to do things the right way. My landlord is in this country legally; he is originally from Great Britain. He entered the US through legal means and did all the paper work to stay here. He has spent about $1200+ thus far to be here. Yet, he has to pay another $700+ to become a citizen, while the current government wants to give citizenship to illegal’s free of charge.

    I am sorry, but something is very wrong here. If you enter and are in the US illegally, you should be deported plain and simple. Why do you think they are called illegal aliens? Cause they are here illegally, and in my mind should be considered a criminal. Stealing is illegal, murder is illegal, we as Americans need to start enforcing the laws that the Federal Government put into place. All Arizona is doing, is actually following through with what the Federal Government is not enforcing their own laws, but instead turning around and bashing Arizona for enforcing federal law.

    It infuriates me that USA illegal immigration became a big problem as soon as Obama became president. Richardson and others did nothing when they were governor, senator,congressmen and president to offer solutions to this problem that has become an outrage. Remember that Ronald Reagan opened the doors when he granted amnesty to millions back in the 80's. Get our troops back from foreign lands to protect our borders for all illegals. Mexico is not kind to illegals when they cross her borders, so why should we be gracious and accept those who cross into our country?
    Aagain, this problem existed long before Obama became president Sarah Palin. But he must make this a priority in this administration and not poo hoo it as other past president have.

    The world is changing and our technology is playing a big part. How can we have Immigration laws the way we have them today and then have an Internet that allows international profit and reachings world wide. Our world is getting more and more integrated and I personally feel its time to "ABOLISH IMMIGRATION" World wide. Don't get me wrong we still need a tracking process but we should simply allow anybody anywhere to travel in the world as long as they follow the laws of the place they are in. Times have changed and so should we "ONE WORLD FOR ALL"
    The question we need to ask is Immigration laws and rules were created at times when there was segregation and racism, If we want to change we have to also change this too! The world is different now and is more integrated then ever.

    This is a funny thing, has anybody ever looked at the number of immigrants that are considered illegal that are not Hispanic or tan skin and are of Caucasian skin from Canada, Russia, Germany, the UK, or other parts of the world. I bet if you did you would be surprised the numbers are just as high. But its not as noticeable when you blend in. Its racism clear and present, is how I see it! Try and Profile that Arizona!

    Arizona law makes me think back to the South in the 30's,40's & 50's.
    We can not have a country that has 13 million doing 'slave labor' and look the other way. The world is smaller than many years ago, we need to AMENSTY and then secure our boarders. With 11 million PLUS, what do you want to do – send trucks to town all over the United States and start collecting familes like the NAZI's did? Also, remember that many that are here undocuments are not just from Central and South America. I will not go to Arizona at all, and I travel a lot. I pray Pres, Obama will do the correct thing and make some path for many good and hard working undocumented families here in the United States.

    I am so glad that I don't live in a place where people are so ignorant and prejudiced.

    Why do Americans have such strong opinions and so few thought out ideas for improving many of the situations in their own country? I personally would read more comments if their were more ideas and less criticism. We can make things better, however it is more difficult when so many are throwing stones.
