    My simple non-sophisticated non-American mind tells me that to enter a country ilegally and than complain when you are being asked to identify yourself or you are being prosecuted for your actions is the biggest impudence I have ever heard off.
    Remindes me of the boy who killed his parents and than asked for the mercy of the court because he is an orphan.

    I think the problem to my also simple non-sophisticated, non-American mind is that it does seem to target the Latino community, regardless of their immigration status.
    In theory it doesn't really amount to much more than the law as it stood, it's just extending the power to state officials rather than just federal ones. However, it is dependant on the state officials carrying out their duties without fear or favour, and at a guess, the Latino population don't trust them to do that.

    I'm so sick and tired of this left wing nonsense propaganda. Illegal is illegal and they need to be deported. It's that simple. What the state of Arizona is correct and is doing what the FEDERAL government is suppose to do. Who cares what those so called LATINS think or say.ILEGAL IS ILLEGAL AND ILLEGAL ALIENS/IMMIGRANTS need to be deported. America welcomes LEGAL IMMIGRATION, black, white, brown, yellow..who cares..but come LEGAL.

    Well, seeing as we're both commenting on the story then arguably we do. Us, and the more or less quarter of the population of AZ that isn't caucasian? And that's just to start with.

    JUST SO I UNDERSTAND THIS. YOU PASS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YRS. HARD LABOR, YOU PASS THE AFGHAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET SHOT. YOU PASS THE AMERICAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET A JOB, DRIVER'S LICENSE, ALLOWANCE FOR A PLACE TO LIVE, HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION, BILLIONS OF DOLLARS SPENT SO YOU CAN READ A DOCUMENT. WE CARRY PASSPORTS IN OTHER COUNTRIES OR FACE JAIL TIME.
