How Arizona Became Center of Immigration Debate

So what do you do ?

Should we give an Estimated 12 to 20 Million illegal , undocumented , Law breaking individuals Amnesty , and all the rights of a naturalized citizen and someone that was Born in the USA !

the point was made yesterday about Arizona Governor. Jan Brewer , and her ancestors being Immigrants ! That's real funny because everyone that lives here is a descendant of an immigrant , Even Native American Indians Migrated here !


But once colonized and established the U.S Required documentation of who you are in order to come here ! Immigrants eventually After time sent to Ellis Island where without Much question they were given Paperwork , DOCUMENTS , You had to have them on you !!! They were more than welcome to come here , But just have your Fucking papers !

So whats the difference today ???

We have an influx of law breaking , undocumented , I want to change the laws of another country type of people who feel they can do what they want , Telling us , NOT ASKING US , that by what ever means necessary they will have their way !

ABC News
The frustration had been building for years in Arizona with every drug-related kidnapping, every home invasion, every "safe house" discovered crammed with illegal immigrants from Mexico.

The tensions finally spilled over this month with passage of the nation's toughest law against illegal immigration, a measure that has put Arizona at the center of the heated debate over how to deal with the millions of people who sneak into the U.S. every year.

A number of factors combined to produce the law: a heavily conservative Legislature, the ascent of a Republican governor, anger over the federal government's failure to secure the border, and growing anxiety over crime that reached a fever pitch last month with the slaying of an Arizona rancher, apparently by an illegal immigrant.

"It's something that should have been taken care of for years. It's not something we can keep slacking on," said Thomas Fitch, whose neighborhood was the site of a raid last month that netted 11 illegal immigrants in a safe house. "At the rate we're going now, it's going to get a lot worse."

The new law makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal.

Critics warned that the law could result in racial profiling and other abuses, and they are planning a legal challenge and a November referendum to overturn the measure. Supporters of the law say it is a commendable effort to combat what is fast becoming a scourge in the U.S.

Arizona is the biggest gateway into the U.S. for illegal immigrants. The state is home to an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants — a population larger than that of entire cities such as Cleveland, St. Louis and New Orleans.

The Republican-dominated Legislature has backed a series of tough immigration measures in the past decade, only to have the most aggressive efforts thwarted by then-Gov. Janet Napolitano, a Democrat.

No surprise there !
