On Monday's Rock Center on NBC, correspondent Kate Snow savaged Alabama's new immigration law, touting left-wing historian Wayne Flynt comparing it to the racism of the 1960s: "This is just mean-spirited. This is – this is finding the most vulnerable people within a society....it's like the blacks in 1963 who could not vote in Alabama."

Jim Crow laws were against US citizens. These people are not and snuck into the country without inspection. Took jobs illegally, drive cars illegally even kill Americans, steal identities, buy green and social security cards. Because we want them out, we are the bad guys?

Who are these people who side with foreigners over US citizens?

If we truly enforced our immigration laws, this wouldn't even be an issue, would it? blame the federal gov. for things as they appear right now for their refusal to enforce our laws.

Yep, even though it's been a problem with previous administrations, obama should be doing something instead of prohibiting AZ for doing something.
obama always seems to pick the wrong solution everytime.

When will the madness Stop! We need to Protect these illegal immigrants and their children! SO let make ICE do their JOB and DEPORT all these poor illegal immigrants and their chidren back to whatever country they came FROM. CONFISCATE ALL their WORLDLY POSSESSIONS and Sale their Possessions at Public Auction and use the Money to Help Pay for Social sevices for Legal Immigrants and United States Citizens. Deport more of these poor illegal immigrants Back to their Homeland Broke. That way it will discourage them to Stay at their Homeland, People not to come to United States without PROPER PAPERS. Illegal immigrants and their children ARE costing United States Taxpayers BILLIONS of Dollars. People who support illegal immigrants and their chidren Need to support these people in their own Homeland.

Thank You Alabama

A welfare State like Alabama cannot afford their own trailer trash so it makes sense to keep out more problems.

It is indeed racism by the dominant culture who always have the power to do what they want to do with minorities and those who are poor and vulnerable.It is mean spirited and heartless because when things are good it is ok for them to stay here and work their ass off to get a bread.It was your people the so_called Americans who came here over throw them use borders to keep them out then call them illegal thats ironic and unfair this should teach us that only the dominant race should survive and determine who should survive.There is the bigger picture that all men were created equal we are all occupants of the earth when the rain falls it doesn't fall on one man's housetop when there is a natural disaster it affects us all my point we are powerless under the rule of our creator so we should be humble and compassionate.Whoever you are you have no control where you were born and would indeed seek a better life by whatever means if you were someone else its not for us to be sanctimonious and self-righteous in condemning other people merely because we are lucky to be born here not fair! get rid of the hate because by Gods law your children is no better than theirs!

Yaah Adam, I guess it depends who you talk to, but the parents are illegals and so are the kids. If you want to blame someone for their plight, blame their illegal parents who cry foul after illegally crossing the border and are finally feeling the consequences of the illegal actions. NO ONE to blame but themselves. They're ok as long as they can hide and get away with it, but let the spotlight shine on them and they don't like and whine a cry racism.

If the Farmers had used to legal AGvisas instead of illegal labor, they wouldn't be complaining either.

seems all these media folks like to lie and twist things showing again those who support illegal aliens will try anything and do anything to get their ways.

so if the race of the reporter is printed it might be one of their race got deported and now laws are racists when it is the reporter who is.

We are talking about US citizens here. What part of that is so hard to understand?

Nobody cares about the illegal immigrants in Alabama, Arizona or anywhere else. The whole point is that everybody in those states with brown skin is now a suspect. It does not matter if they were born here or not. They now must prove their innocence.

American citizens should never be put into that position and you can bet if white Americans were involved this would have never happened.

We have ways for people to come to the US legally. Why don't they do that? By the way their are immigrants that come places besides Latin American. I guess that want to join up legally, put race aside and be Americans. They what people do that want to be Americans. People who want to join us don't use us because they like "our house" better than theirs and they find an open door and move in. Somehow all these third world think they have the right and we owe all the poor people of the world a piece of our life. How dare they and want to hide behind racism.
