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.
California already has a very similar law, which they don't follow anyway. The Arizona and California laws are modeled after a federal law, which the feds don't enforce anyway. It's not as simple as the mainstream media makes it out to be.
These are only two, what about the other 48? I think the states will enforce once the voters demand enforcement.
Yes, and it is time for the states to boot the Feds out and return to the status they enjoyed before the traitor Abraham Lincoln established Federal supremacy by the military in the so-called "Civil War".
Yes. not only is illegal immigration illegal, meaning it is against the law of this land. But it also hurts the law abiding people of this land and slaps the face of those who defend our land.
I am all for immigration, there is the right way and the wrong way to do it.
the Feds need to take a step back and remember who we are. They have no right encroaching on states rights. I fear that we are headed down an road that no one wants to travel.
Our Constitution says that state have the right to govern themselves. That was the original Constitution anyway. Any state that was in the Confederacy was forced to give up that right if they chose to rejoin the United Stated of America once again.
But I think Arizona is 100% correct in trying to maintain themselves in what is quickly becoming an expensive quagmire.
I think other states should absolutely adopt similar laws. Granted, the justice department and the Obama administration may well choose to take them to court as well as they have the Arizona law. But the court of public opinion will start to open the discussion, I think, when other states also adopt this very popular law, that something more MUST be done on the federal level to help states to protect their citizens and ensure that all laws are obeyed and enforced. It will become more apparent that the time and effort should be spent looking more seriously at immigration issues and reforms, and LAWS, rather than spending it on fighting states who feel like their hands are tied.
The states that are suffering because of the financial strain placed upon their states by illegals absolutely should do this. It is a sad day when MANY liberals, politicians and just citizens, do not GRASP the meaning of the word ILLEGAL!! However, as I live in WV and we have nearly no illegals here, my legislature should worry about issues that affect the citizens of my state.
White Europeans were the original illegal immigrants, were we not? Did we not illegally encroach upon land owned by the Native Americans?
Evan Hutchinson asked: White Europeans were the original illegal immigrants, were we not? Did we not illegally encroach upon land owned by the Native Americans?
My response: We sure did encroach upon the Indian's land but I don't know if they had a law or laws that made our actions illegal. Regardless, we whites seem to have ripped them off.
Yes. 22 other states are now considering similar legislation. The only thing that is holding them back is their fear of a lawsuit and the costs it brings with it. I think every state should pass the same legislation as the Arizona legislation. This would negate the argument that there is a hodgepodge of legislation - something different for each state. The feds would then have to come up with a different reason why it is such a bad idea and I doubt that they would sue all 50 states (although the ACLU probably would) but then again, who knows what the Obamanator is thinking other than about how to get those illegal aliens legal before the next presidential election to keep him afloat.
I think no they should not follow all Arizona law. Because if sufferings are for two why suffer 48 others.

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

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...

I saw a short blurb in the newspaper that there are now 7 lawsuits filed against the Arizona immigration law. The interesting part was that one of the suits was filed by a police officer because, according to his lawyer, he might be fired from his job if he didn't enforce the new law.What...
