I know the problem of Imigration in the states is real and needs to be dealt with, but here's an interesting question.
If the immigrants from Mexico were instead of Canada, would the story still be reported the same?
It seems to me like there is some racial element to the legislation simply because we know they are from Mexico and are non-white.

Actually, you would be suprised to learn that by 2030, visible minorities will be the majority in Canada's major cities.
Canada is one of the most (if not the most) multicultural countries in the world! You just made a pretty blanket statement.

I think the point here is: if most of the legal and illegal immigrants coming into the USA were white, english speaking, north europeans, would people react in the same way as they do if they are mostly hispanics?
And the the question is: why?

Well,for one the issue in Arizona is not race it is crime.
The bill gives law enforcement officials the authority to check a persons legal status if they are stopped for suspicion of committing a crime even minor.
If you are illegally in Arizona,obey the law to the letter and you will have no problems living there.
Before posting such ludicrous statements you should do some fact checking.
Canada is a country with law abiding citizens.
Mexico is a narco state that is quickly falling in to complete anarchy.
Do you think these people who have no comprehension or care about borders will stop at the U.S./Canadian border?
Canada has its own issue with illegal Chinese immigration in British Vancouver.
