The argument to let undocumented peole stay becsue of anchor babies doesn't wash. these people knew they were illegal and knew it was risky to have a child under these circumstances. If someone was convicted of another crime and got pregnant, had a child while awaiting sentencing, shold thier sentence be lifted? Of course not.

"Everyone's afraid," Arias says.

Afraid of having to face the consequences of breaking the law? If they had come here legally and became citizens, there would be nothing to be afraid of.

I sure wish the businesses that hired these people faced the same consequences for their actions. Sure would be nice that their lives would be ripped apart as well. Seems to me we have industries in this country that continue to exploit the cheap labor, but leave state and local governments to deal with everyone else. So our answer is to punish the poor person just trying to make a life, meanwhile the businesses making a buck off these people get off scot free.

another media sympathy piece for illegal aliens whom the general public are sick of financially and emotionally. It's not like these people are going back to Mexico no they're going to become a burden on another state just like they've been a burden on the people of Arizona. Would you have sympathy if there were 12 million Irish, Russian, or Asians in America working and living here illegally....no you wouldn't so why do they want people to have sympathy for Hispanics.

Don't fret about short-term affects. In the long-term, everything will work out for the better. Unfortunately, most will come to California.

Moreover these are the words( from the link)
that hurts the rational people

""A lot of people have just packed up and moved," he said, adding that a strip mall across the street used to be bustling on weekends. "Now it's like a ghost town."

A nearby Food City grocery store reports a 20 percent to 30 percent drop in business.

I think you need to go back to your English lessons. Your sentences are fragmented as are you thoughts. No one has a clue as to what your trying to say.

I don't need Oxford English, just good sentence structure and coherent thought. I don't think that's too much to ask.

it's rather humorous that you are asking others to convey 'coherent thoughts' when you haven't uttered one yet. Refugees leave their home in order to survice the Mexicans aren't refugees they're illegal aliens who broke into our country in order to illegally work jobs and use services meant for American citizens and resident aliens. You are one disingenuous and two illiterate about the situation so your thoughts on the matter amount to drivel and your prose is quite frankly juvenile at best and egostistical at worst.

Your faulty English (actually American but that's another discussion) certainly does not offend me. I'm having problems following your train of thought and making sense of what you're trying to say. You might get together with someone who speaks English as a native language and have them translate and post for you. Then we could understand what you're trying to say.

you're also by your own words a 'Tool'. So you hate the world and think it's detestable but rag on Americans who want their borders enforced much like India enforces their border with Pakistan or Bangladesh which you don't seem to criticize even though the country of your birth is racist, bigoted, classcist, corrupt and engendered with nepotism in all ranks of it's society. Do you think because you're married to a Christian woman from Europe you're cosmopolitan or sophisticated or is it "diverse" which you hold up with high regard for yourself and disdain for others. I've seen your posts before and it's usually the same snide arrogant observations from which you don't have to suffer the consequences of. Let me guess you're one of those 'European Citizens' who believe they should have the right to vote in American elections because of our effect on the world. Enjoy your Progressive mentality until it hits you square between the eyes when your privilege is no longer assured by taxpayers who are fed up of catering to you and your issues.

Iam too young to play with the grand old mothers and fathers.
I am too old to play with urchins.
That is not the topic in Topix which is a forum that is sponsored by xyz.
The grand old people had failed to civilize the computer world( forget about the real world)
The urchins of new generation consume a lot .

And the idiots in California cricise the law and threaten to boycott Arizona. They are unintentionally inviting the illegal aliens to join them in bankrupcy and the future chaos that will envelope California. All current politicians in California should be treated as quarentined terminally diseased people. Cut them out and take them away where they can't contaminate anyone else.

Perhaps instead of using other author's words and attempting to wax poetic you could just take your medication.
