These are anchor/green card babies sucking from the few American tax payers left.
My school bus driver wife tells me the illegal kids on her public schools bus have talking this up for a week, when she asked what they are protesting for, the only response back- "I have no idea, going with my parents" yes who are illegal. Of course the felons don't want to be asked about their legal status, I wouldn't either.

That doesnt suprise me at all. What is the school doing about all these kids just leaving, I am sure there school was empty due to 90% of the students are problem mexicans, I know whats how it is in Aurora. What about the cops, is this legal for 1,000+ kids to walk out of school like that?

They should receive a zero in all their classes for the day, and an in-house suspension. They can do their protesting before or after school.

Sounds like they all need courses in humanities, western civ, economics, American History, and government for starters. I bet most of them couldn't name which amendment gives them the right to peaceably assemble in protest... LOL

Same reason that you would care about another white person if you were all lumped into a stereotypical category.

Your problem is you are the only race in this country to hold another one down. Nobody has ever held YOU, the white man down so how could anyone expect your ignorant ass to have an emotion called empathy and what I thought was something we were all born with...common sense?

And yes, I am white.

Were these protesters all students? Why wern't there not blacks, whites, Asians?
All any person who is not a Citizen of the U.S. is ask for a green card and be legal? What is the big deal? All Arizona is trying to do is stop the Mexican drug cartels and gang violence and protect the people in their State.
Arizona is trying to save the lives of all who live in Arizona.
How many protesters have or know someone that has been killed in gang related violence caused by the drug trade? Why try to help rid the of trouble makers from Mexico and not make it easier to make Latinos look bad?I'm confused?

They can march over to the Colleges they want to attend and sign a waiver for any financial aid in the form of Federal or state grants or loans from taxpayer monies and say "give the money to the illegal aliens, instead!". Then they can march over to where ever they plan on working this Summer and say "give my job to the illegal aliens instead!". Then, I will be impressed with the stand they are taking, because they will be suffering what the rest of their student population is suffering, but I don't think their tax paying parents will be amused.

I tend to agree the illegal aliens that will be affected by Arizona's new law will be the ones who flagrantly break the traffic and criminal laws we all have to obey. And when they do get caught, and found to be in this country illegally, they won't just be ignored until they hurt someone. Illegal aliens who do nothing to call attention to themselves still have a pretty good chance of getting by.

America should start carding Polish, Irish, German and Italian immigrants. All white people look polish. We should start sending them back to Poland. If you are not a true redneck you do not belong in America.

PS Sarcasm, but maybe it should be true the way some whites act about this.

Being a former immigrant and now a US citizen, I went through the proper channel in becoming a US citizen. This requires patience, following rules and regulation of the government and being able to have financial means of living providing for this country. I truly believe the immigrants of today are not following the protocol of the United States goverment (they are looking for a free ride). And speaking from experience, no immigrants should get a free ride. If they don't have the proper ID and learn English and follow the laws of the land, they don't belong here. Government should know legitimate identification not falsified documents being produce by illegal immigrants. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN AMNESTY - it's a cop out attitude that the government should not take.

I am hoping that the Immigration Law passed in the State of Arizona should be implemented to every States to protect every US citizen and protect our legal rights as a citizen.
