    Here's a picture the majority of the people agreeing with 1070 and voting in more politicians with the same stance creating a pop corn effect across the boarder states .

    I notice that CNN always does these special little talks with poor hispancis who are here ILLEGALLY but have not gotten caught for years. Years yea because the Feds due nothing and when a state at least tries the feds want to stop them.. Might just as well repeal the Federal law and change the Constitution. While CNN does there little specials in favor of the Illegals they REFUSE to talk about or run a special on E-Verify. Costco voluntarily participates in E-Verify that is why you cannot find illegal aliens working there. Democracy for the Illegal aliens the shaft for Americans.

    I would like to say is the problem in Arizona really about Immigration or the Mexico Cartels to control there drug routes to the US. We failed the Drug War so powers to be want to now say that it a immigration problem but the true problem is DRUGS, DRUGS which is a very big money maker for all the seller's and the law enforcement. But in all the new I have heard very little the link to the cartels for the all the violence.

    I support Arizona because I was born and raised here, graduated from high school, and I was honorable discharged from the U.S.M.C. , but I haven't had a job since october and I haven't recived unemployment benifits at all. I was homeless twice, and I have no way to get to the va for heath care but 99,000 die yearly from va hospitals. The only thing that comes to mind is, How in the world does a illegal immigrent tresspass into a country, find work, able to have a house water and food to live when there is veterans that where born and raised here that are homless and are dieing from the hospitals? My solution is this.: 1. do a nationwide sweep of every house, every car every place a person stays and check for rights to be here. If you have documentation then you have NOTHING to worry about. 2. when all illegal immigrents are gone, it will open up to about 11 million jobs for american people (like me) or people that earned the right to be here. Now whats wrong with that?

    America is with you Arizona. You have the backing of most American's . Someone had to take the first step. Thank you Arizona.We must stop the Illegals coming into America before it's to late. Americans need the jobs that illegals are taking away.Illegals are costing higher taxes and taking jobs that we need for legal citizens that are loosing their homes and livelihood.We as Americans need to stand with Arizona. Before it's to late.

    Immigration laws are an issue only when we focus on the illegal Mexicans. If we administer laws equally, it is also a gateway for Arab terrorists. Also, which part of "We, the people...." applies to illegal immigrants? They are not citizens and do NOT have Constitutional rights, only human right. There is no right to break the law anywhere.

    What part of Illegal don't people understand? We need to take a stand here and illegal is illegal. They should not have rights and we send the wrong message everytime we turn a blind eye to that. Let's enforce the laws that are made. They don't have rights and should not. Thank you Arizona for taking a stand in favor of the US LAW.

    Ready or not here it is – deal with it. States have aright to make laws on any matter including immigration so long as thety don't contradict federal law. The Arizona immigration laws do not attemt to change federal law. States have cooperated in enforcing federal law by checking suspects for federal violation – that is essentially what the Arizona law does for illegals.

    Good for You Arizona, I for one am glad your taking this stand. All and I mean all Illegal aliens in this country (from all walks of life) need to go, and the Federal Agencies need to do their jobs. The Feds are real quick to make laws, real quick to take our tax dollars, and are always if ever quick to not do the right thing by the American people. It's time for you over paid, lazy, corrupt, and bought off politicians in this country to get to work and stop trying to be so politicly correct.

    I have a question.
    Are there any STATE laws being broken with regard to HIRING ILLEGAL ALEINS? If so,WHY ARE NOT any of these avenues being pursuded the employers? Why not enforce laws already witten under the State before spending tax dollars pushing a NEW LAW through the court system ?

    This judge must be a Dem. showing her lack of commonsense. When can we have Independent people that understand what the American people really need. Not the far right or far left .

    I wonder who in Obama administration forced her decision. It is clear the US Government is continuing to develop a society of the rich and poor. Her decision is racial profiling against citizens of the US. In Canada if you are stopped and don't have legal documents, there is no question asked but you are turned over to immigration. Funny how they have enough people in immigration to handle, but the US doesn't.

    Checking a person's status when stopped is NOT illegal and NOT racial profiling. In Arizona, most crimes committed are committed by the Hisipanic population and that is why Police are concerned when they have stopped someone for a violation. The policemen suing Arizona have no business being officers of the law. If they feel that by asking for your driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance is a violation of the law, then they should be removed from the police department. If you don't have these pieces of info, the police has the right to determine if you are legal or illegal.

    Obama and his administration should be ashamed of themselves but there again, they want slave labor and will allow illegals here.
