Not too long ago, the Supreme Court denied Arizona the right to enforce existing immigration laws introduced in HB-1070. There were all sorts of false rumors circulating over this bill, some as ridiculous as the bill giving law enforcement the right to just shoot any illegals they captured. Being a border state with Mexico, all Arizona wanted to do was enforce the federal laws that are being ignored by the Feds. Now, we have around 200 Sanctuary Cities, States, and Counties who choose to ignore the Federal Immigration laws. The Feds seem to be OK with this concept.

Patti - Arizona got sued by the Feds for trying to enforce existing immigration laws. Sanctuary Cities who refuse to enforce the laws are forgiven and ignored by the Feds. Is there something aout this I am missing?
It's all about future voters. Once politicians get to Washington, their goal is to stay there indefinitely. The rule of law is an outdated term to many who make bad decisions for the rest of us.
Term Limits would fix many of the problems we have today without us doing anything else.
Term limits would solve the problem of representatives staying on for life, but it would do nothing to stop the tide of grateful future democratic voters from making sure we have a one party system.
Well in some ways the GOP is handing this to them.
I agree, the GOP is handing the Dems permanent control. They have shown such a lackluster response to this very lawless administration. Even the committee hearings end up exactly nowhere.
It almost seems like we already are just one party but they still play the game and put on a show so we don't catch on to that.

I know your right about trying to get new voters into the country. Just about everyone who wanted a cell phone has one now so they wore out that idea.
Austinstar - Look at the map at the top of the page and you will see where they are. These are locations that have declared themselves to be "illegal friendly". San Francisco is one of these cities where a woman was killed by an illegal recently.
Wow, only one in Texas? Looks like San Antonio. I guess I just can't understand the people of this country actually supporting immigration, legal or otherwise. No one seems to learn from their mistakes.
Yeah, only one in Arizona also. I guess our border states have a different view of illegals than most other states. I guess you have to actually see it to believe what is really going on.
