It's all a great deception. The leftists seem to truly believe that they are on the side of right. They really think that America is a horribly racist country and that only they know what needs to be done to fix it. The main problem I see with them is that they think that anyone who has a different view is automatically a racist.

I'm a black guy. You don't know how many times I've been called racist or an "Uncle Tom" by the tolerant leftists for simply thinking things like "Illegal immigrants from ANYWHERE shouldn't be able to come and go into OUR country as they please." I served in freaking Iraq, and I didn't do it so people from anywhere can disrespect our borders.

We have enough minorities here already who need help. We have enough Americans of ANY color here already who need jobs.

But nope, I must hate Latinos.

Oh yes, and I am Elton John's son, I just got back from the freaking space station, and aliens disrespected our ozone layer, teabagger.

Exactly. I guess you think there is NO WAY that I can be black because I don't think illegal immigrants from Mexico should be able to come and go as they please.

Or, perhaps, you think I CAN'T BE BLACK because I have a decent vocabulary and command of written English.

God help us.

Had the feds done their job in keeping out illegal immigrants, the Arizona law never would even have been considered, much less passed.

What ever happened to common sense?
07:03 AM on 05/17/2010
Agreed. Further, does anybody see the irony in the fact that Ms. Napolitano couldn't keep illegals out of her own state of AZ, but is now responsible for protecting the entire U.S.? Besides...AZ doesn't need Homeland Security...they've got Sheriff Joe!

Im proud that the LA City council is taking active steps against this law. My mother's side of the family is latino and its is wrong to think that if we made a trip to AZ my family who are all citizens could be stopped and asked to show their papers. Should we start bringing passports over state lines?
12:52 AM on 05/17/2010
If you drive you can be stopped anyway by the police and you have to show papers. If a Fed stops you you have to show papers and prove your a citizen (It's in the federal version this law is based on) In Arizona you can't be asked if you are illegal unless you are stopped for an unrelated incident. And by the way they can question you if they think you might be an illegal Canadian.

You also help support the country of your choice:

http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/markets/economy/illegal-immigration-provides-benefits-states-despite-rhetoric/

According to the Comptrollers’ office, state and local governments spent $1.16 billion to provide services like education, health care and safety, but raised an estimated $1.58 billion in tax revenues. Based on the data, the Texas taxpayer made a $424.7 million profit on its illegal immigrant population in 2006.

Fiscally, illegal immigrants contribute mostly to state and local coffers primarily through sales and property taxes, which are mostly unavoidable. A majority of illegal immigrants pay federal, state and local income tax as well - 50% to 75%, according the Congressional Budget office.

Wow. Our society is doomed.

With an attitude expressed like that in the headline we are no longer the "United States". Do you lefties even get that!

He looses all credibility in the first paragraph, no wonder you are so foolish if you read tripe like that.

Do you feel that the Black community is in better shape because they have voted Dem for the last 50 years?
10:19 PM on 05/16/2010
Who on the left can tell me with a straight face......... This is not merely a ploy for another minority voting bloc beholden to the Democrats? Come on guys….. Be honest

A note to the Latino voting bloc, before you hitch your wagon to the Democratic dream;
Look at how voting Democratic for 50+ years by the Blacks community has benefited it? There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of progress in a good direction. The strong Black family is an anomaly and the Democratic village isn’t doing a very good job of replacing it. Look at the condition of the Black community, the drop out rate, the illegitimacy and incarceration rates of Blacks in this country. Keep in mind this is after voting Dem for 50+ years, make sense to you?

I guess the latino's and illegals are here just to have a better life.( I don't think so).they are here to take their land back and to run all the white people out.If you don't believe me check it out yourself.Do a little research on the matter ,look up the "the mexican movement" or "the council of La Raza and tyhen get back to me.

Why is it that all latinos now have to be tarred with the idiotic musings of things like "the mexican movement" and their supposed desire to reclaim arizona? Most white people can remain unscathed despite the idiotic rants of the teabaggers and rightfully so remain untarnished as most white people do not agree with the baggers just as most latinos don't agree with these extremists. I think I know. It is a typical ploy of a bigot to discredit a group of people by saying a few of your guys are in this group that is certifiable nutbags therefore all of you are nutbags.

Right or wrong, the people of are taking the initiative, passing laws, and deporting what they consider a pest. It's a radical step, and I don't agree with it. They took the courage to do this though, unlike a lot in the (D) party. I could never see 'Modern (D)' taking such a bold step. Why are the (R)'s always the risk takers and elbow their ideals into place? There's no shortage of courage within their camp. Where are the FDR (D)'s?
10:43 PM on 05/16/2010
Conveniently, it's the mechanism that you avoid talking about. There's no way to "deport" the illegals without profiling all of the Latinos. As an American citizen and a Latino, I am utterly shocked that because of the color of my skin, I'll be subject to some scrutiny whereas anyone else who is white won't get the same treatment. That is unjust and unfair and racist. Try to see our point of view.

As a white American, I can assure you that there are many of us, MANY!!!--who find this racist, xenophobic law reprehensible. I for one have canceled a business training and a subsequent vacation trip to AZ as part of the effort to boycott this lost state.

Keep an eye on the blame passing in a year or so.

Here's the deal as I understand it. One of the biggest reasons given for AZ to channel Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia was crime. All the illegals are the ones committing all the crimes in AZ, right?

So what happens when crime doesn't go down significantly in AZ? Who do we get to blame at that lightbulb moment?

I'll bet it will involve something along the lines of "it's a good start but it's not strict enough!"

Note to Richard Trimka,

Hey DICK, Arizona is a right to work state. Keep your corrupt union B.S. where it is. It's obvious you are trying to incorporate Arizona as a "union" worker state. Mind your business somewhere else and BUTT OUT!!! Thanks for listening DICK!!!

Arizona favors poverty for those it so desperately needs to make it's economy work and is now trying so hard to keep out. As you so quaintly call them illegals.

Cut Homeland Security ties with Arizona? That's a bit much really.

Couldn't the AFL-CIO find a better way to express their views?

Their point is valid. It's time to stop complicity in illegal acts between gov, police and the military. Remember, no one is supposed to be above the law.

Does it get more idiotic than this? This is the federal law as well? Why aren't the unions and the lefties crying about the federal law? Because they are all hypocrites. Obama puts his jabs in because he only thinks in terms of votes. He wants the votes, he does not care one lick for any of these illegals. I wonder if it were someone in your family gunned down like the Arizona rancher was by illegals if you would take a different stand. We have borders for a reason. If the Feds refuse to act, Arizona has to act. Pure and simple. If the illegals want in, do what everyone else does who wants in, go through proper channels. Then you will be welcomed by the USA.
