Here's an idea that would help Arizona: Ship illegals to 'sanctuary cities' like San Francisco.

I think all those tens of thousands of ILLEGAL immigrants residing in Arizona should either ask San Francisco or LA to pay for their room and boarding until they return to Mexico where they can protest all they want!

ILLEGAL immigrants and ILLEGAL Immigrants Rights groups in Democrat controlled areas all hate the rule of law as it impairs their desire to gain tens of millions of new Democrat voters on the entitlement train to economic hell!

The boycotts are working! Arizona is afraid, and will back down! When everyone goes on strike, Arizona will not know what to do!

In the past two decades, one million working class whites left California and moved to Arizona to get away from immigrants (both illegal and legal). They created a nice life in Arizona where a blue color white family could have a decent life. But the immigrants ruined California so bad, that they now want to go to Arizona because it is not yet ruined by immigrants.

Why is this a race issue? I don't care if you are from Mexico, India, or China, but come here legally. The USA has rules so please respect us by respecting our laws. I can't put all the blame on the illegal, some needs to go on our system as well. We've made it too easy for people to live here illegally. BUT NOW AZ is trying to change this and people are upset because they are actually enforcing the laws, crazy!

PS If you can't speak three words of English, you are probably not a citizen. I lived in South Korea for only one year (legally!) and went from not knowing a single word to reading, writing, and speaking at the level of a 5 year old. IN ONE YEAR! not to mention their alphabet is symbols, completely different than English. There is not excuse for people living in this country for centuries and them not know basic English. I shouldn't have to push one for English when I am calling a US company.

My god, what part of ILLEGAL don't the moronic masses understand??

And if there's racism here, it's on the part of the filthy, hypocritical invaders! They are turning a crime issue into a racial issue, and they are the ones that think BECAUSE they are hispanic, they can run roughshod over our country, culture, language and laws...

By the way, whatever happened to the Democrat/liberal idea of population control and zero growth?? More hypocrisy: while they keep micromanaging actual Americans' lives in the name of the environment, they simultaneously are forcing the largest population growth in the history of our country down our throats, both legally and illegally (and with a group that is factually over-breeding, with the Catholic Church complicit in the problem, both at the source and here where they are overflowing.)

...With a 10% legal citizen unemployment rate, a strike will put a lot of people back to work, and might give a boost to those businesses who hire legal citizens.

-- The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset "the equilibrium of the national demographics." How's that for racial and ethnic profiling?

-- If outsiders do not enhance the country's "economic or national interests" or are "not found to be physically or mentally healthy," they are not welcome. Neither are those who show "contempt against national sovereignty or security." They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.

-- Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years' imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years' imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in our country (see, for example, President Obama's illegal alien aunt -- a fugitive from deportation for eight years who is awaiting a second decision on her previously rejected asylum claim).

-- Law enforcement officials at all levels -- by national mandate -- must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens' arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.

-- Ready to show your papers? Mexico's National Catalog of Foreigners tracks all outside tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens' identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.

All of these provisions are enshrined in Mexico's Ley General de Población (General Law of the Population) and were spotlighted in a 2006 research paper published by the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Security Policy. There's been no public clamor for "comprehensive immigration reform" in Mexico, however, because pro-illegal alien speech by outsiders is prohibited.

Try fighting at home.

People who agree that illegal immigration is wrong and out of control should boycott the boycotters. Annually, we have a family reunion of about 50 individuals. The last 3 years we have met in San Francisco. Counting all 3 years, I would say we've spent no less than $75,000 for the weekend event. We just cancelled this years hotel reservations. We will be going to Sedona instead.

"WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT" says the illegal hispanics and their supporters. And yet it's Tea Party participants who are accused of inciting violence.

Apparently illegals can say or do anything, but a US citizen has no rights anymore. What has become of America?

Time to take back our country while it's still worth having. Soon it will be as unfit to live in as Venezuela or Mexico.

Zero tolerance for illegals. Get out and stay out.
