hat Mr. Hay refereed to as devastating consequences has actually lowered the unemployment rate of Alabama from 9.8 prior to the law, to 8.1 as of Dec. 2011. The way I see it, is that there is an invasion of our sovereign nation and the American people are tired of it. The States are doing what they can to protect their citizens and the States resources. There has to be a reason why nearly 25 of the nations 50 states are doing this. It's because there are 10's of millions of illegal aliens colonizing our country and we the American Taxpayers are paying 100's of billions of dollars for people that DO NOT, LEGALLY belong here. The whole invasion has had devastating consequences to Americans that have to deal with this 3rd world menace on a daily basis.

So we may as well take on Mexico as a welfare state. That won't cost us much, huh?

Going cold turkey will hurt because we have not been enforcing the law but everything will even out. Plus we will save lives and in the long run we will save money and our country.

I wholeheartedly agree. We will have an adjustment period but it will even out. Then only legal Americans will be those working in the US.Remember we must get Obama out of office in 2012no matter what. He is ruining every aspect of American life and the culture.

What irks me is how people claim 'they can't get welfare.'

They have kids here who then are citizens. The 'citizen' children then get Section 8, Wic, food stamps, welfare, you name it, & the illegals cash in on the bonanza.

We're already cutting our own people off. Let Mexico or whereever they come from feed & clothe their own people. We don't need any more goldbrickers.

I voted for Obama and think he could have done a better job. I just hope when he goes we don't jump out of the frying pan into the fire.

I also think the worst days for America are ahead no matter who is in the WH. Alot of those bad days will be for illegal aliens. For them this is as good as it gets. Jobs and welfare for them is drying up.

It is costlier to look the other way. The costs associated with their American-born kids is one of the reasons this country is up to its neck in hick. This debacle needs to end now, before it is too late to save this country as we once knew it. Personally, I don't relish the thought of leaving this country in a shambles for my kids and their kids. If we ignore the illegal invasion any longer, that's what we will be doing.

Costly? Getting rid of illegals saves a fortune in health care and education and prison costs.

No american wants illegals here except the damn farmers who demand the right to break the law and hire them for $5 an hour.

Exactly. The illegal aliens cost us a fortune, and they couldn't care less. They are only after whatever they can get.

The web site AlterNet says how they are for social justice yet they say that states are proposing Anti Immigrant legislation. They obviously have no credibility...states are proposing anti ILLEGAL Immigration legislation. They are nothing but lying scumbag socialists.If they were truly for social justice they would not lump ILLEGAL Immigration with LEGAL Immigration
