How do you feel abou the new immigration law in Arizona?
It states that police officers can demand ID papers from anyone they suspect of being illegal? To me, it's reminicent of South African apartheid.
You don't know what apartheid is. For you it is just some buzzword that ignorant leftie-loonies throw around.
Hooray for Arizona. Their law is pretty much the same as U.S. Federal law, which the corrupt administrations of the last forty or so years have not enforced.
BTW, it is much less stringent than Mexico's laws to keep out Guatemalans, etc.
The lefties want more stupid and ignorant voters.
The corporations and business interests want more stupid and ignorant workers for monkey jobs.
Mmm, can a person actualy be illegal, what an interesting idea.
How many people have you met that have actualy been subject to the apartheid regime of South Africa, I'm English, I've met loads, worked with loads, it has very little to do with asking someone for papers, and more to do with outright thugery, find out about things before you make absurd comparisons.
Ouch, I actually do know what apartheid is. I suppose I just worded this question poorly. Nor do care I about leftists or votes. I don't affiliate myself with any party, I don't even live in the US.
When I first read about the new law it reminded me of how black people in South Africa had to carry papers around every where they went. I do know that that was one small aspect of the apartheid regime, it was just the part was called up for me.
The reason I asked this is because there are a lot of people in Arizona who look or are hispanic and have been living in the state for generations. It seems to me that this law is one more step down the slipperly slope of racial profiling. I'm sorry for the ambiguous way I worded it originally.
Though I must admit I was offended when you two started claiming to know exactly where I was coming from after reading three sentences I had written, I do understand why you said that. I don't have a problem with the US trying to keep illegal immigrants out of their country. My problem is when darker skinned people start being harrased just because they look like most of the illegal immigrants.

What do you all think about this one? Seems like some good fodder for my fellow hubbers.

Should other states follow Arizona's immigration law?The illegals don't return home, they just go to another state and start over again and incur expenses at their new state.

Is Arizona’s new immigration law racist and should they be boycotted?I believe it is a racist law and may lead to not only those who are ethnically Hispanic being treated unjustly, but all people that do not fit Arizona’s white Christian population. And they should be boycotted, it is just a...

In my humble opinion, the Arizona immigration law is not racist. I'll tell you why. Yes, and this cannot be argued, most illegal immigrants in Arizona are Hispanic, but the law targets illegal immigrants, not illegal Hispanic immigrants. As a worker in a bank, I help illegal immigrants all the time...

It has been said that "Immigration is a federal issue and we can't have 50 states making 50 laws." but we have 50 different rules for voting for the president which is also a federal issue.I'm not asking if you are for or against SB1070. I'm asking if states' right of self governing...
