It looks like this is finally catching on, and legal residents have had, enough!
Other states are realizing that with what is going on in Arizona, they may get an influx and are taking that, seriously!
Illegals are already stating they are leaving AZ, so, way to go other states! We need these laws in all 50 states, despite what Obama says!

These states are forgetting who they are and how they came to be
So, you're OK with hassling legal immigrants and citizens, possibly arresting them if they don't have adequate proof of citizenship or immigration status, just so you can get those illegal aliens?
Here's an idea: crack down on employers who give illegal aliens jobs, and you'll see the problem disappear. But there's NO WAY the Republicans are EVER going to do something like that. That fruit isn't going to pick itself.

Dragnet, your opinions, observations & input would be valuable and welcome on how to go about that. I have quite a few Hispanic friends who have expressed irritation at illegals & Mexican nationals here, but since this has come up, I haven't had a chance to discuss it with any of them yet.
I've never really pursued it, but I have wanted to ask "how can you tell?" a few times. Affluent nationals are easy to spot by the way they dress and frankly, by their demeanor.
Regular people are not so easy (for me, anyway) unless it someone doing something that is obviously off the wall. I would think that law enforcement, because so much of their business IS reading people, would be better at identifying who is who for that reason alone.

I just pointed this out in another thread. The Fed is not supposed to regulate State Law according to our Constitution. Our Federal Gov was formed only to protect the people from Foreign and Domestic violence and infrastructure. It is the job of the States to regulate this, even though the FG feels they should have a say.
Personally Im very happy to see this issue finally getting the time in the spotlight it has needed for so long.
The unabashed stupidity in these interpretations of the Constitution is causing headaches. The wording of the Constitution makes it absolutely clear that immigration law is the province of the feds.
he two references in the Constitution that specifically mention aturalization, are found in Article I, Section 8 in creating the authority of the Congress, “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” Thus from a Constitutional stand point it is the responsibility of Congress to establish all laws and rules of naturalization or immigration.
Any and all illegals who commit crimes should be taken the shortest route back across the border.
As for law-abiding others, that's open for debate in my opinion.
