It's already a federal law. Arizona is closer to where the problem is, they are only reinforcing what the fed states. This is not profiling.

Yes, it is about time that at least one state in our Nation took a stand! People say that the illegal’s are doing work that Americans won't do and I say BS. I have been out of work for 8 months now and I would gladly take any job offered to me, including working in a field. I am a Caucasian male, 27 years old with a wife & two kids who was laid off from a job I had since I graduated Macon High. I still get un-employment but that doesn't cover the bills and now we may be forced into walking away from our home and moving in with my wife’s parents. I would be grateful for anything. I went to several of the tobacco farmer’s looking for work and was told sorry by each of them, they already had people to do the work. Yes, ILLEGALS. They come here, get paid cash under the table, pay no taxes, get food stamps, welfare, medical coverage, etc. They get low cost housing & all the help our government can give them. So they don't even have to spend the money they get from their jobs, they send it back to Mexico to their other family members so that they can pay the coyotes to bring them over the boarder so that they can take more jobs. When will all of this end? Illegal is just that, ILLEGAL (against the law and I support what Arizona has done. Who knows, maybe instead of moving in with the in-laws, we can move to Arizona, I might be able to find work there!

To the person who posted as gang-bang. You are probably a female wih low self esteem who thinks she can only get these mexicans. As I see it, the only people in Lafayette that will stick up for Illegal Mexicans (focus on the word ILLEGAL) are the women/girls who have gotten involved with these guys and have their babies. Look around Walmart, see how many young girls & women have some Illegal Mexican with them and are either pregnant or have a couple kids in the cart. Any American with a shred of decency would not get involved with these Illegals unless it is to help send them back to Mexico. If they want to come here, let them do it legally! Way to go Arizona.!

Sorry, that's kinda like saying a bank robber has a right to the money in the bank...or, a shop lifter has the right to something they stole....the bottom line is it doesn't matter who will work or who won't...THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW BY JUST BEING HERE!!!!....THEY NEED TO LEAVE...THEN IF FARMERS HAVE TO PAY A LITTLE MORE TO HIRE AMERICAN...SO BE IT!!!!!!

If every State would do what Arizona is doing then maybe there will be a chance for the American Citizens. The rights of the American People are being trampled on for the Illegals of all ethnic backgrounds. If our State refuses to take a stand, then it is up to the people of Tennessee to make the changes. The lady that used to own La Tia's, do you remember how many Illegals she had working in the restaraunt? It is businesses like that, that Americans need to boycot? I don't care what race a person is but they don't belong here if they are not here legally. I am tired of my rights being tossed out for the rights of those who do not belong in this country. Give it 5 more years and Tennessee will be just as polluted with illegals as California is.

Time for our laws & constitution to be enforced. Tired of illegals reaping the rewards of what legal American citizens have fought & died for. Tired of paying their medical, their welfare, their kids education, etc.

yes yes yes. Every where you look there is a carload of mexicans here in lafayette. They have taken over not only our town but almost the whole country. They are just getting a free ride. I agree with just about everyone here, they need to be sent back to their own country. They have took over our Jobs. All our good jobs have been sent to mexico because they will work for little of nothing there. These Companies can get their goods made for almost nothing. And then they come over here and take what jobs we have left. And the government should not be allowed to give them what they do, free housing, food stamps, insurance. And alot of the americans that need this can't even get it. They do not pay taxes. Which I think if they are going to live here, they should be treated no different than we are. They live about 10 or 15 of them in a two room shack and it don't cost them anything hardly at all. What alot of people don't know is that when they work public jobs the government matches what they make. So they are making twice the pay. Why are they any better than we are. And everything you buy now a days has spanish lables on it as well as english. And we are subject to have to learn spanish now because they are here. If they can't speak english then they don't need to be here. This is America Jack,This is our Country. Go home where you belong, we don't want you here.

At the commissioner meeting the other night the school board guy got up and said the classrooms are over filled in capacity and that the schools are now over crowded. Do you think it is because of all the illegal children being here. I know in Lebanon the school district makes you sign a paper stating whether your child is an Americn citizen or not. My friend lives in Lebanon and she signed the paper saying yes, her kids are here legally and asked why? She was told that since her kids were Americans that they would not be elligible for any special programs & that the the programs were desgined to help the non English speaking kids learn English and to get the special help that they needed. At the same time all art & physical education classes have been cut to do this. It will be happening here too. Yes, let's just keep allowing them into the county and State. Look at Calfiornia and the problems with the hispanics taking over. I have a few friends who were from Ca. living here now and they moved just for that reason and now they see the same thing happening here. Our kids get nothing while the mexican kids will get all the special attention.

They most certainly DO NOT have as much right to be here, you moron . They are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS and have NO right to be here. ARREST and DEPORT.
