The plantation owners were getting scared that the new immigration laws might actually start working so they called in their markers and the politicians caved. So once again the plantation owners rule day and say f U American citizens, we need our slave labor.

US citizen - Indeed true. The citizenry that elected these representatives should now tar and feather these turncoats. Your are absolutely correct - an epic cave in towards the business interests that adore and thrive on the ILLEGAL supply of labor. The business interests gain all the benefits of cheap ILLEGAL labor while the citizenry at large has the burden of underwritting the costs and expenses of the illegal aliens. Disgusting!!
The citizenry has two enemies (traitors) to contend with here - the skank employers who lust for ILLEGAL cheap labor and the elected representatives who aid and abet both the business owners and the illegal aliens.
I fear drastic measures may well must be taken to halt this nonsense.

The illegal mexihole chamber of commerce of Az, an arm of the RINO country club republican branch of the republican party, bought off enough republican votes in the Az Senate to sink the new immigration bills. These RINO republicans must be made to pay the price. It goes without saying that all of the marxist communist latino ass kissing demoratic politicians must be kicked to the curb as well. The illegal alien chamber of commerce of Az will allow SOME dog and pony show immigration laws enforcement just as long as no real EFFECTIVE enforcement is being done. They want to keep the so called cheap illegal labor flowing and let the American taxpayers subsidize the "baggage" the so called cheap illegal labor brings with it. Wake up Sheeple.

SELLOUTS! Send those who voted against these 5 bills packing. US is a F#&*~ng lost to Illegals. These Illegals from Mexico sucked the US DRY, including tens of millions of jobs. Take your money out investments and the Bank and starting enjoying life while you can. The SECOND collapse is coming, but this one will be much worse.

The Selling of America by soft hearted liberals, politicians who are gutless. Greed , is killing this country while Americans sit back and look, we have illegals protesting in the streets, the American tax payer who is being shut out from jobs is paying 88 billion a year to host criminals, we are scared to enforce our laws, we have no leadership in the White House. The demise of a country starts with its laws, illegal is illegal, history will show this is the turning point in America's demise, its inablity to control immigration and boarders.
Wake Up America! this invasion is no joke, America is under attack.

"....Thursday's votes showed last year's overwhelming margins of support among Republican legislators for SB1070 stemmed from election-year pressures, said Constantin Querard, a Republican consultant whose clients mostly voted for the bills on Thursday. It's evident now, however, that many Republican senators aren't that concerned with the issue, he said Friday"

why the names of those who voted aganist is not in the article i dont know. It seems a few GOP members forgot who voted for him.

" Getting the clear "vote no" signal from so many major employers provided political cover to lawmakers whose constituents could demand explanations for votes against the bills, said Bill Hart, an analyst for the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University."

".... "The Legislature and the people ... are also suffering from immigration fatigue," said Sen. John McComish, a Phoenix Republican who voted against the bills. "We're totally distracted and it's divisive."

I dont know AZ is that good enough of a "political cover" for your to relect these people in a few years.

Thanks Alejandro for the good job keep it up ! Keep posting
 Just think of this facts :
- How many immigrants work for you in each moment during the day ( restaurants, hotels, lunch, clean all places, agriculture, construction, meat processing ...)
- Few thousand dollars a year go unclaimed in the IRS and the Social Security office. That money is what helping us and may have your pension in 20 years, or help the thousands of disabled people who can not make money because they can not work. Is free money because the Illegal immigrants don't want received this money.
- The 70% of work force with low salaries (7-10 dollars) without benefits is immigrants. Can you support a family complete with this small check? The immigrant can do that.
- Ask your kids or any child of a school, if he cares or knows of any illegal student in his class. The new generation of Americans understands that diversity is also, to respect others by not having to pay thousands of dollars in legal documents for legal entry into the U.S. embassies. 
- Did you know that some northern states, illegal immigrants arent Latinos, are Canadians

Did you know that most soldiers in Vietnam and received medals of honor were heroes are Latinos.
The US citizen realist
"Latinos" who are illegal aliens live in the United States off their "citizen" children. I call that parasitical. They have figured how to work the system and do so. Is that "Latino" model of success you speak of ? If it were not for so many government programs in America for "latinos", they wouldn't be making it. When 2 or 3 families live in one house odds are they are pooling resources. Putting a strain on small neighborhoods. Multiple cars parked in front of one house even on the lawn. You post the same diatribe propaganda over and over again, it's getting boring.
