As Sheriff Dupnik, of Pima county, stated recently, "the police have always turned over any suspicious individuals to the Border Patrol" This law has done nothing to secure our borders, and only causes fear and distrust of anyone who looks or talks like a Mexican! The Henry Kissingers and Arnold Schwartenegars have the right accents and so will not be "suspicious". It appears that we are blaming the immigrants for all the financial problems of the US, while ignoring our inability to secure our borders. Now that it is an election year, Mr. McCain has all the answers. Where was he for the last 20 years? The fear tactics of the Republican Party are once again inciting hatred and lies about our politicians with no solutions. "Guilt by association" will be the key to Gov. Brewer's famous law. How can we become more civilized in this uncivil environment?

McCain is a politician just like the rest. This clown wouldn't know an illegal if they punched his old stupid ass in the face.

This law is bullshit. We have federal laws and we pay the feds to enforce these. We don't need to be paying the cops to do the feds jobs. If the feds aren't doing their jobs, then let's stop paying federal taxes.

The law is the law? What kind of bullshit is this. If Jan signs into law a new bill that says that you must eliminate 1 of your kids, are you going to do it too? "The law is the law". Pick one.

People agree with stupidity for the sake of agreeing.

Remember all the dead Jews in Nazi Germany? "The law was the law".

Legals are welcome and illegals should go home and apply to become legal. The big problem is that laws need to be enforced to control the drug,gun and other laws being broken.

DJK,
So, how do you tell the difference between illegals and legals. Yes, you ask for papers. This is starting to sound a lot like the old KGB stuff. Do we really want that?
And what about the legal ones that have passports and come here to spend a lot of money? Do you harrass those too until they no longer come?
Let's make the assumption that you are not one of the living dead here in AZ that is over say 75. You might want people to buy things in AZ so that jobs can stay here. If you are one of the living dead, over say 75, then you don't care 'cause you are financially stable.
I say that immigration should be controlled at the border. This should not be an extra task to throw on top of the cops. We pay the federal gov't to do this and they should deliver. If they can't, then we should stop paying federal income taxes.
This BS1070 bill is silly in that it's more redundancy to laws that already do not work. "The law is the law" is a stupid argument.
If Jan Brewer passed a law tomorrow that said that you must execute your 1st born kid by COB next week. Would you simply jump up, grab your gun and shoot your kid? "The law is the law".
How 'bout we hold the feds accountable for doing their jobs. Let our cops take care of us where they need to. And stop dicking around with The Minutemen, or BS1070.
In addition, let's hold this worthless president accountable for making reforms to outdated immigration laws. There's no reason that a person applying for a passport to come to the use should have to wait 20+ yrs, while those with money can come here immediately and we welcome with open arms.
In order to drive down the influx of illegals, all we have to do is revoke business licenses and put business owners in prison for 20 yrs if they hire illegals. They will think 2Xs.
Right now, the penalties are laughable.

there is bound to be some inconvenience with this law ( which I support ) but there is with most laws. especially to those who are breaking them. Some citizens will probably be inconvenienced on rare occasions. I am inconvenienced every time I go thru a sobriety check point - being stopped to show I am not intoxicated but I'm glad they do it. I deal with it and move on. get over it and move on.

Illegal is just that, illegal. Do it the right way and become an American. Be proud of the fact, and wave the American flag, not the Mexican.
