Yup - it always come down to what business wants. Meanwhile the taxpayers are screwed paying the social costs of illegals. Getting rid of illegals will save the state billions of $ in health care and schooling and prison costs.

50% of Americans don't even pay taxes and of those who do the majority are the rich.

Where you fit in is the lower tax bracket so my guess is that you pay a few thousand in taxes a year yet you act like you pay millions.

Illegal aliens do this while sucking our welfare system dry.

Source: Inter-American Development Bank, March 2006 report,“Remittance 2005”. Mexico remains the largest recipient of remittances, at over US$20 billion, followed by Brazil and Columbia which for the first time reached over US$6 and US$4 billion respectively. Central America and the Dominican Republic combined to reach over US$11 billion; and the Andean countries totaled almost US$9 billion.

As much as 50% of remittances are unreported. As published in the Development Prospect Group Briefing #3, "This amount only reflects transfers through official channels. Econometric analysis suggests that unrecorded flows through informal channels may add 50 percent or more to recorded flows. Including these unrecorded flows, the true size of remittances, is larger than foreign direct investment flows and more than twice as large as official aid received by developing countries."

The businesses who will lose from this law being enforced are run by criminals. If these aholes think they have the right to ignore the law in search of profit, why don't they just deal cocaine? They think laws don't apply to them, and they would make more money.

I watch news channel 10 every night but its seems not only to me but many others that every story about Sheriff Joe Or Gov Brewer, Immigrations is the fault of the American people I would just once like to see NEWS CHANNEL 10 Stick up for the American People that want all Criminals out of the united states. Tax payers are FEED UP to hear for paying for these leaches. For example you show a story about Sheriff Joe DOING HIS JOB WHAT WE PAY HIM FOR and all of a sudden there is a Hispanic person saying why is he doing this why does he not mind his own. In broken English &#61514;

I can only hope one day that NEWS CHANNEL 10 Will Stand with America and start telling the truth about the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS they need to get out.

Proud To Be an American VET YES I SERVED in the ARMY for this Country & YOU ?????

Why not try to be a real American and STAND behind America NOT MEXICO / I for one will not watch NEWS CHANNEL 10 Any More and will tell all AMERICANS I know to change the channel
And watch a channel that’s is for AMERICA.

Maybe you are being paid by the MEXICAN DRUG cartels NOT REALY SURE. But Enjoy the Money.

It makes no economic sense to import labor when so many millions of citizens are unemployed. I can feel for those migrant workers who came here looking for work and now are being forced out, and I can also feel for those Americans who now have to settle for less pay, because their new employer only knows how to take advantage of people. However, as more American citizens move into these industries, they'll have the leverage to change things for the better.

I paid a little over 34,000 last year in taxes. I want them out so where does that put me? Illegals should have never been here to begin with. The fact they are fleeing only supports we are better off without illegals of any nationality.
I noticed yesterday the countries of South America have joined forces in a lawsuit over this law. Explain to me how in the hell a country in South America has the right to dictate any law in this state or country. Those countries are only adding fuel to an already raging fire. The funny thing is they don't want them back because they can't afford them. Guess what, you better pony up because those of us in Georgia will no longer be paying for them either.

The funny thing is that every Latin American countries struggle with their own illegal immigration issues, and they all have border fences and deportations. Mexico itself has a very nasty relationship with Honduras and Guatemala regarding illegal immigrats crossing it's own southern border.
Even if we wanted to take a Globalist view of immigration, perhaps attempting to come up with a uniform set of laws that would apply equally to all nations in North, Central, and South America, we couldn't get them to sit down at the table and agree to anything.
Illegal immigration is just like regulating industrial polution, the under developed nations make demands of the United States that they themselves are unwilling to commit to.
