@REBEL I'm with you!! This is just one reason why there is so much increase in crime and Identity Theft!! God forbid someone gets my identity because I will find them and be more than HAPPY to have them arrested and deported!! These who disobey the law bring the consequences upon themselves.

If they came here ILLEGALLY they did do something wrong!!!If they paid taxes by using fraudulent ID that makes them guilty of identity theft.If they paid taxes on food that doesn't make them a taxpayer...it makes them a consumer!!

Legals have followed the rules and llegals have broken them. They do not pay the same in taxes and they ARE breaking many laws. Stop your lame little game.

How did they get here? What laws did they break to get those jobs? What laws did they break to drive to those jobs??? It seems to me that you only know the crap that they fed you, but not the entire truth.

Now they should demand that it be honored.
If all of these states have passed these laws should people be talking more in English rather than Spanish in these states? Also why are'nt these states enforcing these laws everywhere??

Who knows why they don't enforce them. Why don't they enforce our immigration laws and why is the President suing states who try, while ignoring states who go directly against federal statutes and have sanctuary cities?

Most of the time the states have English as the official language in regards to governmental documents, stating all government business will be conducted in English.

We really need a national language -- English -- rather than just the "common" language we have now. Having a common language just isn't enough. People who want to come here and benefit from all this country offers should learn the language (English) and be happy to do so. Instead they act like ingrates.
