Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
- Theodore Roosevelt 1907
GOD BLESS ARIZONA!!!

Actually, that was in 1913 just a few days before he died, not in 1907 as quoted.

Come here the right way (legally), do it the right way...learn English, learn American culture....it's a great DISRESPECT to the USA and it's people, the American people. It's a big slap to my face and all those who have traveled to the United States legalally getting their permanent resident card and getting their Citizenship.
I tell you, the way the economy is right now, illegals, you are doing yourself a dis-service by even trying to fight Az law...And any supporters of illegals...any political party that support illegals, get ready to get your butt handed to you at election...
The ECONOMY is a big factor, so be prepared when legal Americans fight back for their rights...WE THE PEOPLE...

I could not agree more!

I tip my hat to Sheriff Joe too. The very first thing they do in they in this country is a crime. They do not belong here until they do it legally. Then I welcome them with open arms. Until then, stay out and quit putting a strain on our hospitals schools. jails etc.

By the other comments here I sadly see that there is very much Hate and an extreme lack of knowledge of immigration reform in Minneosta. Please learn the facts! The reality of what is going on. Did not Jesus teach us to Love, a person who Hates I say will never go to Heaven. It is evil to hate when you can love and spread peace and happiness. Forgive and Repent. That is why the world is such a mess because it is so easy to hate what you do not understand. www.jackshepardforcongress.com

Your opinion. I have seen her many times,she is well spoken,comes across as fair and trying to save her people and state from an invasion. It is a law with sound reasoning, pure and simple. You are a race agitating putz who makes inflammatory statements without anything to back it up because you are a liberal and a ninny. It is supported by a vast majority of the country, which just happened to elect an person of color as president. You likely have no idea what you are talking about and it shows, so keep your stupid race baiting garbage to yourself, or haven't you noticed that race baiting has lost its teeth from over use by dopes like you.

"The law would ban illegal immigrants from soliciting work in a public place."
Typical liberal media. They help fight for extension of welfare/unemployment benefits and 'oh, look what you're doing to the illegal immigant.'
First, ILLEGAL. Get it?
Second, remember the concept of citizenship? If you like to hide behind the 'freedomof expression' part of our rights then you've got to read to the rest of the rights and remember that those rights are for CITIZENS.

You are in the minority. Bedammed the haters? You are hating, there tough guy. Luckily, honest, hard working Americans do NOT agree with you. You damn haters, use God's name like He is on your "side" and it should read, "And so do alot of other..." Your welcome. You gutless agitators have been called out and your flimsy race baiting and virulent hatred have been exposed, you have been exposed and we aren't taking your liberal PC idiocy any longer.

Arizona's new law will force local police to enforce federal law in a way that will likely lead them to target all Hispanics and others with dark colored skin. This is not right and it is not fair. It is UnAmerican. The solution to the illegal issue is to stop providing people without appropriate papers work. Remember, they come here to work. If our employers like Tyson and Hormel and hundreds of thousand of construction firms were held accountable, there would be less work and fewer illegals. The employers are not held responsible thus the illegal workers are abused. Too many of our politicians are eager to see industry provided with cheap labor and are persuaded to allow things to go on as they have been for the past years. If employers were forced to do adequate and complete background checks on every employee, then the flow of illegals would drop to a trickle.
