People need to understand the law is not against immigration. It is against people being in the country illegally.
Do the proper paper work, apply for your visa and wait for it to get issued. RIGHT! This is what we did for my wife and kids from Ecuador. My wife supports the Arizona law completely.
Or you could come to the US and overstay your tourist visa. Get a fake social security card and identification. Sign up for government services. Have your baby in the States, medical paid for by the generous taxpayers of the US. Get citizenship for your child because he/she was born in the US. Get government assistance for housing, food and medical compliments once again of the generous US taxpayers. WRONG!
DO THINGS THE CORRECT WAY!
What do you suppose would happen to me in Ecuador if there was a crackdown on immigration? Would I be singled out because of my skin color (I am a gringo)? Yes. Would I be happy to show my documents? Yes. Would I be able to cry out about human rights violations and racial profiling if the police questioned me? NO. Stop complaining about immigration laws. Immigration is good if it is done right. Follow the law.

Referendum requires filing 76,682 voter signatures by 90 days. But Still at most of online polls people support the Law. make your voice heard on http://immigration.civiltalks.com/
Is it not stupid to fight with Mexicans for a job in the fields at the national level?
Mexicans are hard working, fellow who just came here to do work that Americans, including blacks, will not do!

HAHAHA. You criminal lovers have to come up with a better line than that. People just laugh at such talk now. Everyone knows illegals come here for the freebies. Maybe the man has a job but his wife and 8 kids are living off the taxpayers.

Please, the only thing Mexicans work harder at, is working our free social services system via their American-born children, and drinking themselves into oblivion to further lose the limited brain cells they already have.

I have some news for my fellow Americans. When GWB toughened the immigration laws when he was in office guess what happened?

Farmers complained that they had NO workers to harvest their crops. Americans do not want to work on any farm to pick fruit or vegetables! The farmers plowed under the crops that needed to be harvested. This produced shortages and higher costs at the supermarket. You can't have it both ways people. Don't want higher prices at the supermarket then pony up and get in the fields to harvest.

Also most Mexicans are hard working people. The issue is Mexicans but our immigration policies. If you want to come to the US from another country you need to show: You have money in the bank, have property, have a job in your current country and you have to explain why you want to live in the USA.

So for many people, being an illegal is the only way to get here.

This country has laws and you have to respect the laws. This country has become powerful, because of its organization, and a foundation of laws
This illegal avalanche is destroying the fabric upon which this country was built.
Your case makes my point, you like most illegals do not care to respect our laws
you are “savidos” that are constantly looking for ways to circumvent the laws.
Your country Ecuador is a mess because the masses think like you do.

I don't know how Ecuadorians think, but if they are protesting AZ laws, then I don't believe these protestors are thinking very clearly. Don't they have enough to protest about in their own Country?

WOW, this mentality is exactly why lawbreakers are losing their arguments. Supporters of illegal immigration just want illegal status Mexicans to pick our crops??? And, excuse me - "do work that Americans, including blacks, will not do". You've got to be kidding me. Is this really even an argument for illegal immigration? Cheap, menial labor will disappear??? Shocking!
