Yeah you will. This ain't New Jersey. Thank God. But the political fallout is too much and these career politicians should be banned like the illegals. Nobody is going to back a bill like this in Texas for quite a long time, if ever.

Let me clarify my statement about backing such a bill in Texas - when I said "nobody" I mean "nobody in politics" will back such a bill. There would be plenty of supporters who are voters. But very few politicians would back it knowing it would be the kiss of death for their political "careers".

Why are so many in favor of supporting illegal activity ? Is there a second definition of the word illegal I am not aware of ? Where is the outrage from legal immigrants and all law abiding citizens that are victimized by this illegal behavior ?

in one breath you said there are plenty ov voting supporters, but then said politicians who back it would be committing political suicide.
The voters who support this bill will know which politicians also supported it. Therefor they should get re-elected. Especially if there is 70% support like there is in Arizona.
Feel good policies and white guilt should have no place in making responsible political decisions.

Texans love Arizona's tough anti illegal alien law.

We wish we had it here.

I don't know why we don't allow as many illegals to come in our country as want to. So Phoenix is the kidnap capital of the world. And rangers and ranchers get killed by drug dealers now and then. That seems a small price to pay so that we can all feel warm and fuzzy knowing that we have no law worth enforcing.

You know nothing about politics. These rats start collecting at the local levels and then move on to big business. The supporters who have the big money will not want to be seen as contributing to what is easy to call "racist" even when it is not.

With me so far?

Now, if we the voters have so much power over these rats why do they sell us out to big money lobbyists and supporters?

Yes we could vote them out and we are.

Now, please name the big political players in Texas who are voicing support over this type of legislation. Please go back one month in the news and watch as Perry scurries from supporting the bill to flat out saying it would never work here.

Is this getting easier for you to understand?

While trying to remain polite here - what the hell does anyone in NJ know about Texas politics? Especially up-to-the-minute Texas politics? And I don't care if you are from here or have family here. I was in NJ a few times. That makes me an expert on NJ politics? All I know was I was glad to get out of there. In fact away from the East Coast entirely. More glad than you were for me to leave there.

Americans support the Arizona law by a margin of 2 to 1.

The US Border Patrol reports capturing Muslim Arabs, Red Chinese, and even North Koreans trying to invade America from Mexico! The drug smugglers will take anyone across the border, even Osama bin Laden, for the right amount of money!

The question is WHY WOULD OBAMA VIOLATE HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND STAND WITH THESE ILLEGAL INVADERS AGAINST THE US CONSTITUTION AND US CITIZENS, UNLESS HE'S WORKING AS A TRAITOR AND SABOTEUR TO HELP THOSE WHO WANT TO HARM US?

Phoenix is now the kidnap capital of the world? Can you back that up? I mean I know it happens there as do home invasions.

Thanks for the link. Very informative. And the lack of reporting these kidnappings by victim's families or friends explains why the fact is not better known.

The bad part? When they run out of their typical victims it is easy to think they will start on rich business people who are not Mexicans, not illegal and not connected to the drug trade.

Scary.

When will corporations that hire illegal aliens knowingly be held accountable? If this happens, will they then raise the prices of stuff, such as produce, because they might say that American labor is too costly?
Here's that second definition "Illegal...unless you work for me."

It's not that they "might say". They will say it. Because it will be true. How many non-Hispanic/Mexican friends or acquaintances do you have/know that work on a farm?

Good bad or indifferent, it is nice to see a governer that it willin to stand up and listen to the majority of the people. Personally I agree with the bill and law but even for those that don't it should be nice to see a politician that is willing to stand against the crowd.

This country was built on ideas and individuality not sole uniformity. The fact remains that the Feds have failed the US people in creating security and listening when the people have spoken. The people that are here legally have just as much, and should be more, rights then those who are here illegally to feel safe, decide what is best for them, and make progress for themselves.

Meg has put the voice of the people before her political career. A true leader as far as I'm concerned. It will be interesting to see if she gets re-elected. I hope the people of Arizona won't let her down after she stood up for them.
