    Alabama has joined the ranks of states trying to clean their state of illegal aliens. … 4688.story

    Some of the more interesting facts:

    Alabama has an hispanic population of around 187,000 people, of which 120,000 are there illegally.  That's 2/3 of the hispanic population!

    The law requires K-12 schools to collect citizenship status.  While lower grades may be attended, no illegal alien may attend state colleges.

    Landlords may not knowingly rent to illegal aliens.

    Illegals may neither apply for nor solicit work.

    Illegals may not receive any state or local public benefits.

    It is illegal to harbor or transport a known illegal alien.

    It is now a discriminatory practice to fire or refuse to hire a legal resident if the company has an illegal alien on the payroll.

    In an echo of the Arizona law, police are required to make a reasonable attempt to discover immigration status during routine detentions if there is a reasonable suspicion that the person is an illegal immigrant. (The link says "immgrant"; my local paper says "illegal immigrant".

    Of course, lawsuits are already threatened and will no doubt be filed.  Nearby Georgia business are complaining that they won't be able to find workers, but that is also par for the course whenever the illegal profits of a businessman are threatened.

    Is it possible, maybe, just barely, that our esteemed leaders in D.C. will one day decide to do what the people want and is required of them by law by actually controlling our borders and stop the lemming like flow of illegals?

      Is it possible that right-wing fear mongers will actually look for solutions rather than scapegoats?

        Nope.  The solution to illegal aliens populating our country is to shut the borders and deport the ones here.  It's a simple concept; simple enough that even a brain dead left-winger can understand it.  Execution is a little more difficult as those same left-wingers have promoted unlimited immigration for so long, but it can be done.  It is also effective.

        I don't actually care what the solution is as long is it includes neither the continued unlimited immigration by those willing only to feed at the American trough of generosity while refusing to become Americans nor the complete forgiveness of past, decades long, flaunting of American laws.

        I would prefer an actual solution instead of simple rhetoric consisting of highly connotative words such as "right-wing", "fear mongers" and "scapegoats" that is designed primarily to promote an emotional response rather than a solution to a problem.

          The 'actual solution' is a resurgence in the economy. Low wage workers who will take it up the *** for any chiseling employer will be back in vogue as soon as things pick up.

          They are great for the egos of white folk with low self esteem too- but only when the good folks can get a better job than those damn latinos.

        As the grandson of a man who came here for a better life and did so legally I think that illegal immigration needs to be treated differently than it is.  The convenience of location is the sole reason why there are so many illegal Hispanics here. The Africans, Asians and Europeans who want to live here and make a life here have to go through hell to get here rather than just wander across the border and hide out in a vast illegal population.

        It is time to smooth the path for educated people who crave American citizenship and make it harder for those who come only to harvest cash to send back home.

          Agreed.  It is far too difficult for people that are willing and able to take care of themselves as American citizens to join us through immigration.

          It is also far too easy for those wishing to maintain their citizenship in and allegiance to a foreign country to come in and demand we support them while they do so.

          The first we need and should be welcomed with open arms; the second we do NOT need and should be sent packing ASAP.
