I oppose this immigration law. I want to state that I am not Mexican/Hispanic. I am african-american. But that has nothing to do with why I feel this way. I feel it is racial profiling, discrimination, and it is unfair. Everyone always says life isn't fair...well guess what I know it's not and that's why we should do something about unfair treatmeant or DISCRIMINATION. We should try and help our country, The USA, be free of discrimination and racism. All men are created equal, and they all have and deserve equal rights. If this immigration law is pointed towards Mexicans, well it should be pointed towards all people of all races and nationalities the United States of America. It is unfair to Mexicans, because it is not an equally fair. You just can not stop any Mexican person on the street because of your own suspicion and curiosity of thinking they are illegal. What if they weren't illegal, and they were a legal citizen of the United States? I would be offended because you think just because I'm Mexican, I'm illegal. Not every Mexican in the United States is illegal. This would be like stopping any Iraqian or Afghanistanian on the street because of your own suspicion and curiosity of thinking they are a terrorist. Not every Iraqian or Afghanistanian is a terrorist. In fact, I've met and seen many people of those nationalities and they are very kind and loving people. My point is this immigration law is not fair because it is only pointed towards Mexicans. That is not fair because the United States Constitution states that "All men are created equal and they all possess their equal rights." So if it's not equally fair to all people of all races/nationalities, then it should not be allowed. How come we respect the Declaration of Independence and we expect other countries to respect our freedom that the Declaration declares from them, but we can't respect the equal rights that the United States Constitution gives to all people of the United States? I'll tell you. We expect the other countries to respect our freedom because we don't want to be controlled by another country and that's what we should expect because we were given that freedom by the Declaration of Independence. Well why is it wrong to expect that the US should make laws that are equally right to all people, when the people are declared to get equal rights by the US Constitution? IT'S NOT WRONG! We all deserve our equal rights as citizens of the United States, and this law does NOT support that because it's racial profiling against ALL Mexicans in the United States. If it's not equally fair and right for all people of the United States, then it should not be allowed.

Mexicans and other illegals must obey our laws. They need to wait in line like all other civilized people. The US has a right to control who comes here.

IT IS A FEDERAL LAW TO ENTER AMERICA ILLEGAL. THE LAW DOES NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE. WHAT PART OF THE LAW CAN PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND. IF YOU GET CAUGHT IN MEXICO AND ARE ILLEGAL YOU WILL SPEND AT LEAST TWO YEARS IN PRISON.

I have a great idea. Maybe we should round up all these redneck americans, and send them off to South Pole so they can all sit and dwell on how much they hate everyone who is not like them. I think it is criminal of us as americans to ban Mexicans from coming here. This was their land before our Europeon ancestors came to inhabit this land. If you want to be mad about the lack of jobs in this nation start looking at the asshole CEO's who are sending all the production and manufacturing jobs to places like Mexico, and China. It is cheaper for them, and they end up making more money than one person could possibly need. We as Americans need to start looking at the bigger picture instead of focusing our hate towards individuals.

Stopped in at the new Mexican fast food on E/Empire, we thought it was McDonalds, when we got inside didn't take long could not understand anyone working there. A lot of American teens would like at chance for a job there, but they are not going to get it. One of the females made it very clear she was illegal and only came here to have her baby and get into our welfare system, she said its the greatest and it FREE!!! And no one brothers them.

Illegal means ILLEGAL! ie.

Illegal - Definition: Not according to, or authorized by, law; unlawful; illicit; hence, immoral; as, an illegal act.

What the heck don't you people understand about that???!!!

I say lets just put a berka and a sombrero on the Statue of liberty and replace the torch with a giant golden burrito and replace the tablet she is holding with a Qur'an.

YES I SUPPORT ARIZONA!

If the Federal government would properly enforce the current laws on the books, when it comes to illegals, Arizona wouldn't have to make a new state law to enforce what the feds won't!

As opposed to the previous poster, I live in a real nation full of real humans who experience real emotions toward their fellows. If Man ever manages to become good and holy and wise, then, fine, I'll stand against profiling laws. As it stands, I'd only ever be against ANY immigration sanctions, if they targeted Swedish stewardesses specifically.

My bad. I read the posting board upside down. I was referring to the very first comment, re: "the previous poster". As to verifying immigrants in B/N, I'd be the wrong person to ask. I'm still getting used to the Irish being here...

You better round up the whole world because illegals would be illegal in all countries and according to you, they are all racist because of it.

This is not about a lack of jobs, this is about do you have permission to be here?
