I guess the illegals didn't like the bill too much did they?

Well, maybe they should have thought about that before breaking the fricken law!

Scroll down for video.

So America is not allowed to enforce its own laws. :shk:

Can you imagine if 10,000 Americans went down to Mexico illegally, waved American flags in their faces saying they were going to take over Mexico, and caused a riot when Mexico enacted tougher illegal immigration laws?

I can't- it would be death and blood-lined streets. Besides, I don't think a country could enact any tougher immigration laws anyway. Mexico already has some of the most ridiculous, self-centered, culture protecting, anti-foreigner immigration laws this planet has ever seen.

Fricken hypocrites. That's what they all are: hypocrites. Everything in favor for Mexico, and screw America.

Well how about that, Mexico? Arizona just told you to shove it and take your hypocrisy back down to Mexico and KEEP IT THERE. I hope they arrest and deport every single one of you fricken illegal hypocrites from the whole state. And I hope the other border states do the same thing soon.

And for you Mexicans and other immigrants that did it the RIGHT way, through our legal immigration system, America will always hold a warm welcome and friendship for you. We've got no problem with LEGAL immigrants. Our country was built with their help.

But disrespect our laws, and this is what you will get. And you're in no position to complain. You've had it way too easy for way too long. Party is over in Arizona. Wahaha. I love it.

Audit: 43 businesses have illegal staff

More than one-half of the Arizona businesses that have had their workforces audited by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents since July 2009 have been found to have illegal workers on their payrolls.

Immigration department spokeswoman Virginia Kice said that 43 of the 84 companies screened in two rounds of audits have been sent letters listing employees whose employment eligibility is suspect.

Pro's Ranch Markets fires 300 after workplace audit

The agency's policy is not to name the companies with illegal employees unless they are disciplined with a fine or other measure.

Besides violation notices, two of the 43 companies with illegal workers were informed of pending fines.

In its investigation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents audited the I-9 forms of 17,194 Arizona employees.

Kice would not say how many were found to have suspect documentation, but nationally the number is running about 18 percent. That would indicate that about 3,000 of the screened workers had suspect documents.

Employers are required to verify their employee's eligibility to work via an I-9 form that they must keep and turn over to immigration officials for inspection on request.

Only citizens and non-citizens with employment-authorization documents are allowed to hold jobs in the United States. Employers are required to terminate those employees found to be working illegally.

"If you continue to employ these individuals without valid documentation, you may be subject to a civil money penalty ranging from $375 to $3,200 per unauthorized alien for a first violation," the letters read.

On April 13 and 14, Pro's Ranch Markets in Phoenix fired about 300 illegal workers, or 20 percent of its workforce, who were identified by an audit of its I-9 employment verification forms.

The company said the employees gave it forged or falsified work documents when they were hired.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents announced 650 audits, including 40 in Arizona in July and followed up with an additional 1,000, including about 44 in Arizona in November.

And with this new law, Arizona is quickly going to see one heck of an exodus of illegal aliens. Which means, potentially, that Arizona may be a new potential hotspot of opportunity for American citizens OUT OF WORK.


It will take some time, but that is my forecast. Employers will no doubt have to raise wages somewhat to attract a new workforce when their illegal labor dries up. Wow! Maybe some power will actually return to the citizen labor workforce in Arizona! Maybe companies will have to offer the best ones premium prices, and competition for these people will heat up!

Wow! Imagine that! A healthy, legal American economy again!

There is hope I tell you, HOPE!!!!!!!!!!

It's about time someone got tough on immigration. This is welcomed news. Those who are rioting, find the illegals among them, and deport them on the spot.

I think we are just seeing the beginning of much worse to come.
I bet by tommorow there will be riots not only in Az but in other parts of the country.
This is not the end of it.
Things are looking ugly up ahead.

I still support this move. Good Job Brewer.

I havn't read your full post yet, but I get the basics of it.

The world will see something truly insane and something that has been brewing for a long time if this utter B.S keeps up.

Of course,. IMHO

If you think about it, more states are going to have to fallow this route and crack down on illegal immigration, atleast in the immediate west, as illegals poor out of Arizona for work and living, other states will see a wave of people coming in.

I may be contacting my state's lawmakers regarding this...

next question ::::

since they're not US Citizens
when they are arrested, will
they be read Miranda Rights???

I agree this is about to get very violent. This isn't going to go over well for the people that want amnesty. The people have had just about all they can take at this point. If people start rioting because they broke the law and can't deal with the consequences then I have a feeling people are going to start pushing back.

The one thing I do know, is that if the fed government wanted to unite the people under once cause this is the cause to actually do it.

It is so simple really they need to become Americans and that goes alot farther then just getting the piece of paper signed. They need to learn the language and stop pledging allegiance to Mexico.

Why are they different they dont want the American way of life they want the Mexican way of life here in America. This is the problem they need to solve.

Pretty much.

There are jobs to be had it's just that lots of jobs require high qualifications that a lot of people don't have.

We need to fix lots of problems in this country if we actually want to remain a country.

I live in Arizona, and I wish I could believe that this is the beginning of a much needed, way overdue crackdown on illegal immigration, but my instincts and experience tell me otherwise.

There will be demonstration after demonstration by so-called "pro-immigration" groups, lawsuit after lawsuit, and political organizing the likes of which have never been seen in Arizona. This law will be challenged constantly, until it costs too much to enforce.

Another problem is that we're dealing with outright crooked politicians (like a certain city mayor who will go unnamed), who desperately want these illegals here for their own political gain, and couldn't care less about the fact that they've been a huge factor in bankrupting the state, not to mention committing about 40% of the crime. Why should they care? These politicians are only using their positions here as a stepping stone to Washington, as demonstrated by the complete lack of any kind of leadership in this state. When this state completely collapses they will be long gone.

And lastly, it should be blatantly obvious to every conscious human being in this country that the Feds also want the illegals here. You can expect challenges to this law from Washington as well. After all, it's not the Arizona border, it's the American border, and thus, the Feds' responsibility.

I wish I could be as optimistic as you appear to be, but I've lived too long not to be exceedingly cynical.

I'm happy for the moment, but doubtful about the future

The footage is a little confusing.

What were these people actually trying to achieve? Were they running at the police to try and provoke them? Or was it a demonstration they can't be stopped?

Cannot agree with you more. To me, this country needs to organize and fix a lot the problems it's facing.

The only real solution is to fix the education system and actually turn people into independent thinkers. Lots of those jobs require lots of problem solving that you can't find in a book.

I just hope they actually do do something about this problem.

My wife is a Mexican.. let me share part of our story.

We met and got married back in 2005. She was here legally at the time, and still is. She was able to come here by following the process. She was here in a student visa studying at a University in Virginia. Her father payed a lot of money to get his daughter here in a legal way, the right way, so she could study here.

When we met, she had no intention of staying here. She was here to study. You can say that she isn't like most.. she comes from a family with money, therefore she has no need to stay here. In some ways I guess you are right.. but that doesn't take away from the fact that she followed the law, and that we are still following the legal process..

I share all of that just to say this:

She despises what illegal immigration from her country is doing to the United States. She is more angry than I am about it. She has pointed out that people want to come here and expect for us to change and court to them.. but points out quickly that they are mostly unwilling to protest their own government to change their corrupt ways and make life south of the border better. A very valid point.

Anyway, I just thought I would share that, as it is my personal experience and somewhat unique to the norm.

Not confusing at all to me. What is happening there is that the white guy was supporting the bill, and the huge crowd of anti-bill demonstrators came after him to the point that the police had to escort him out of there, or things were about to get nastier than they already were.
