rather obvious - illegal aliens are ILLEGAL and have no respect for the USA. They are NOT the type of citizens the USA wants or needs.

representing your opinions as fact does not make them fact. will it change? i hope so. do i think it will? i hope so. i see no other path to survival for our country except to fix the illegal immigration problem. our current administration does not seem to want to fix it. in that respect, i am forced to agree with you for now...probably won't change. i do however like my version of hope and change better than the current administration version of it. with obama, i am losing hope and wishing for a little change so i can survive..

Illegal is illegal. Nothing against legal immigrants, just do it right.

Yeah, maybe with 1% of the illegals that come over it is, not the majority.

Sure it is 1% of the illegals carrying drugs (more like 8%). But is amounts to 80% of the drugs.

A lot of young men who come to America bring a bundle of cocaine or marijuana. They know they can make a few bucks in America for a grubstake. They invest wisely in a commodity that is in high demand and can make upwards of 500% profit on the other side.

it is very common for illegals to smuggle. No they are not bad cartel people (for the most part). But they are smugglers and they DO bring drugs into the country.

Stop wiht the partisan argumetn and see the reality of what is happening. Like always the media turns our attention anout 35 degrees to the right of the real situation.

Legalizing marijuana is not legalizing smuggling if that is what you are driving at. We are talking about Arizona's law and it has very little to do with the legalization issue.

Everyone that wants to do drugs now is doing drugs. Decriminalization will definitely drive that number down as it has in ever country that has employed it. It allows people with drug problems to get help rather than be a burden on our prison system With an effort to help the problem it gets SMALLER every time.

Evemn blanket legalization (which I do NOT endose) will help the immediate problem of drug use. I am not sure why anyone would think that drug use woudl increase in America simply becasue it woudl not be a criminal offense. No one abstains from drugs now becasue it is a criminal offense. Drug addiction is a mental problem, not a recreational choice. People do it regardless of the law, and if the drugs were controlled they woudl not be so available.

Hey, there is no place in any town to get antibiotics without a perscription, but I can get meth, heroin, cocaine or marijuana in any town in the US within ten minutes. So much for prohibition. It has made illicit drugs much more available than any perscription, legal (controlled) substance. A teenager can get a joint much easier than a cigarette, because tobacco is controlled and regulated. Marijuana is sold by criminals wo dont care about the law. So much for prohibition.

So Arizona's law is good. It is making waves and will force the government to do something about the problem. Whether it is racist or not is not the point. If it could not be called racist it would not be as effective at prompting action now would it?

As far as the legalization /decriminalization issue goes we can debate that too if you want but it is not on topic at all.

Immigration should be enforced by ICE, not local police. When illegal immigrants become afraid to report crime to the police, they will become the victims of violent crimes. If you support that, well then say 'hello' to Satan when you die and go to hell.

Talking on your cell phone and driving is illegal, do you still do that? Running red lights is illegal, do you do that? Speeding is illegal, do you do that? All misdemeanor crimes, as is being in the country illegally. The law is the law, but why should the police waste time, money, and resources going after misdemeanor criminals and risk being sued by anyone who doesn't think they're enforcing the law to their full ability? The police will be getting sued by citizens who think they're being ethnically profiled, and by people who don't think the police are enforcing the immigration law to their full ability. This law puts the police between a rock and a hard place. Taxpayers are going to be paying to defend the lawsuits coming from both sides. It's a stupid law, and only stupid people support it. Yes, I'm calling YOU stupid.

This law doesn't target drug smugglers, it targets illegal immigrants. There is a difference. Smugglers bring the drugs across, then go back for more drugs. They're not here to stay. Illegal immigrants are here looking for work, without the proper documentation...which is a misdemeanor crime that doesn't even result in jail time.
