    Yeah go ahead and pass an un-constitutional law because your sheriff lacks any originality. As a result of this silly law AZ will suffer. States and cities are cancelling contracts. Americans are boycotting and cities and municipalities are passing resolutions. Good luck with selling cactii to fellow Arizonans.

    Just kill every illegal immigrant they find from say two months time on wards? Give them that long to get out and then we`ll not have these problems anymore...

    My guess is that illegal immigrants commit less crimes because they are more worried about getting caught and deported.

    OK comrade. It seems like you need this now but what about when the State decides to use this power for something else that it says is necessary?

    I don`t live in Arizona and I`ve never even been in the US so I won`t comment on the contents of the post but it`s fascinating how everyone in USA is so passionate about politics. Here in Sweden the average person usually forms vague ideas of what their preferred party plans to do and votes for that party every year.

    And you think that they will `pull over` a caucasion j-walker? Guess again! They will target Latinos, because that is the only way possible that this bill could do anything. I`m not saying that there isn`t an immigration problem, but I definitely think that this is the wrong way to go about dealing with it.

    Illegal immigrants is such a sensitive subject. We`ve all been too politically correct and racially sensitive for too long. The crime rates, unemployment issues can all be partially solved by getting the freeloaders out of here. I live in Washington, where I feel we have a lot of illegals. (probably not nearly as much as AZ) For the most part they are rude and thoughtless.. like in the grocery store for example They go to the store in groups of 6+ not including children and they allow their children to run wild. They stand in the way and when you politely say things like excuse me they just ignore you. I understand they can`t speak english, but it`s common sense. I`m probably slightly racist, but really I don`t hate hispanics AT ALL I totally understand WHY they come here. I just don`t want them here.

    so because people think that cops being able to ask anyone that "looks reasonably suspicious" for identification is completely prejudiced they think all illegals should "get a free pass to do whatever they want." of course not! but there is a better way to crack down on illegal immigration than making cops stop anyone that looks hispanic and make them provide id. if i had to pick, i would rather have illegal immigrants than racist cops.

    I usually don`t comment on posts but this one I had to. This bill is political bullpoo. And this letter is full of crap. Firstly, sure illegal immigrants find jobs when citizens can`t, however most of the jobs they have are jobs that citizens don`t want to do. Like landscaping and hard manual labor. This law may not legally violate the constitution, but it is definitely violating the rights of people. You want to see crime rates go down? Give legal status to everyone already living in the U.S. Make them pay taxes like the rest of us. Give them a chance to integrate. Then after that, you can make border patrol harsher.

    We go through all the legal procedures to get into their country, why don`t they show us the same respect? Why should we reward those who break the law? Do you honestly think illegally entering a foreign country gives you the same rights as those who came in legally? Everyone is blinded by the `politically correct` bull. If you`re not here legally, GET OUT!

    The bill and it`s implications sound a lot like the Zoot Suit riots in LA in 1943. Hope that kind of social disorder doesn`t happen again though it looks like the controversy of this bill might be a precursor to something worse.

    Where is the ire of the teabaggers? Aren`t they the group screaming about the size and cost of government? Isn`t this something they should be angry at? Over-reaching government power designed to strip Americans of their civil rights? Oh yeah I forgot they don`t care because this law is aimed at latinos and teabaggers are racist.

    AnarchistGod: The email from Ashley references crimes committed by actual human smugglers as well. I don`t think that many illegal immigrants are dangerous criminals, but if we don`t curtail illegal immigration then it gives fuel to the fire of smuggling, which certainly does lead to violence and horrifying human rights violations.

    specialcooki you are not correct. its not that ciizens dont want hard manual labor, its just construction companies rather hire illegals and not have to pay workmen comp and insurence fees. they pay illegals sometimes 17 to 21 dollars an hour beause its cheaper then paying a citizen 10 to 15 plus insurence and workmen comp.

    "How come when people don`t agree with Liberals, they are racist?"

    Because that`s the automatic fallback plan liberals use when they know they are wrong. They can`t beat us with facts, so they call us names.

    The funny thing is -- when you look at those facts, who is really inciting all the violence, hate and racism? Truth is, it comes mostly from the left.

    When the "tea party" was protesting the healthcare bill, what did the left do? They marched the top African-American senate leaders purposely out in front of the croud to incite racist remark. What`s the reward for actual proof of those remarks up to now? $10,000? Nobody has claimed the reward yet.

    When the "tea party" folks protested, they were loud, they were opinionated -- but they were peaceful. When the liberals protested in Arizona, riots broke out.

    Hmmmmmm....

    And democrats passed a bill forcing American`s to purchase health insurance. Pot... kettle.... black.

    I`m not a republican and I wish that we could ship all of the illegals out of our country. We have a law in Washington state, passed by DEMOCRATS that allows police officers to randomly stop whoever they want to check if they are driving drunk. How is this any different? I was stopped one night 3 times within 15 minutes! IMO stopping some hispanics is a lot more productive.

    I am a recent Arizona transplant (from Seattle). I`m going to school down here, and this legislation is definitely needed. Time will tell if this legislation will work, but talking to some police, they do not believe it will lead to racial profiling. A 25 year veteran of the PHX police force told me that this will be the procedure:
    Make lawful contact (pull someone over for a reason)
    Ask for a driver`s license
    If they cannot give you a license or other form of id, the police will run the name/ssn
    If nothing comes up, they can then ask about immigration status.

    I view this as another tool that the police can use to help keep our communities a safer place. Illegal immigration costs the state of Arizona 1.3 billion dollars a year. Granted, it will cost some money to enforce this law, but it will not be anywhere near 1.3 billion. This is money that could be used for more worthwhile purposes like education.

    Don`t even get me started on the DREAM Act

    I think you make a legitimate point, but if you ask me I would get rid of citizenship all together. You`d less wouldn`t be worried about human smugglers and the violence that they tend to create if there`s not some sort of statues that was needed to be acquired.

    I am not going to go into detail as to why citizenship is stupid because I don`t feel like arguing against twenty statists at the same time.

    That`s not what I`m saying BiPolar. It`s RANDOM DRUNK DRIVING STOPS!!!!! How many times must I say this????? They stop EVERYONE.... RANDOMLY! They also do this in Hawaii and other states They have roadblocks and such so you know you are going to get checked out. But in Bremerton (The city I live) they did not set up roadblocks. They just pull you over. They don`t say "You were driving erratically" They don`t even mention anything you could have been doing illegally. They ask you what you are doing. Basically to see if they smell alcohol

    But of course I would have to have done something wrong, right liberals? Democrats would NEVER create a law that is unfair to everyone. It`s my fault I got pulled over. I was driving like a drunk, right????? No I just happened to be in a car, on the weekend, after 11pm. END OF STORY. Until you live in Bremerton, WA don`t act like you know.. because you don`t.

    Even if it was true, and illegal immigrants commit more crimes on average, (which they don`t) they would be less likely be involved those activities if it was easier for them to get a job and making a living for themselves.

    They are trying to slander the tea party movement.

    If you question anything the US government does, even though WE put THEM in power, you are "un-American" or a "terrorist". The truth is, the people pulling the strings are the terrorists. They want to be able to blame us when the next big attack happens (soon), faulting us for the "hate" and "negativity" we supplied as the catalyst for said attack. Say bye-bye Internet...

    Dear PHXBunny,

    Please look up the word "unconstitutional." You`ll be hearing that a lot more very soon.

    Also, have fun paying for the all the civil rights lawsuits you`ll be paying for out of your own tax dollars. Oh, wait, what am I thinking? "The police won`t stop you for no reason." Yes, of course they wouldn`t. Can`t imagine why anyone would think they would.

    Good luck with that.

    I am as against illegal immigration as anybody, and believe some major reform needs to be done about it. Like anything, however, there`s a right way and a wrong way to do it. This is the wrong way. Police only need reasonable suspicion to enact the law. Reasonable suspicion is incredibly vague, and could be as simple as they look Hispanic. This threatens those who are here legally, as well as those whose families immigrated here generations ago. Rewrite the law to define reasonable suspicion, or limit it to legitimate violations.
    As for racial profiling, that`s the hardest part about enforcing illegal immigration. Considering our problems are with Mexican illegal immigrants, it follows that the illegal immigrants will be Mexican (or Cuban if we are looking at Florida). As a result, illegal immigration enforcement would be wasting its time checking white, black, and Asian people. It`s a double edged sword.

    wait a second.
    if you`re against taxation, how can you be for illegal immigrants?

    That`s one of the huge talking points on the side for this bill. the fact that illegal immigrants don`t pay tax but receive benefits from our tax dollars. i guess it must be nice to be an anarchist, don`t ever really have to take a stance on anything.

    Illegal immigration is a huge problem, but all this argument and getting mad at each other and tossing names around is a bit unproductive, even if it`s entertaining. What the country needs is for people to think of better solutions.

    How about the source of the problem? Why are people so eager to immigrate here in the first place, enough so that they`ll bypass the incredibly complex and difficult legal method and risk their own lives/livelihoods to cross the border? It could have something to do with the living conditions in Mexico. Maybe if life there could be made better, people would stop coming here because they think that ridiculously low wages for hard labor is a very good deal.

    First of all. The "wrong" way was to not act, as our `on so liberal` president did. Didn`t act! At least our state did something. And have you even read the Constitution??? There is no `reasonable suspicion` anywhere in it. If you want to quote, get it right the first time so we don`t have to correct you. Here it is:

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

    *Probable cause* is the active phrase here. They need probable cause to pull you over, to stop you on the street, for being stupid enough to ride your bike on the sidewalk. Not knowing the law is your fault, not the police.

    I like you AnarchistGod, you`re funny.

    Now to actually contribute again to the debate, MamboPoa is right. We need to work with Mexico on this, and help them improve their situation their to reduce the need for many Mexicans to come to America. Also, we need to do a much better job of preventing them from even coming in illegally in the first place. I would in addition propose we make legal immigration easier and instigate a zero-tolerance policy for illegal immigrants who are arrested for other crimes. Unfortunately, it happens to often where a criminal who is also is not an illegal immigrant is not deported, and that can`t happen.

    Help improve conditions in Mexico??? Are you kidding me? We help living conditions in Afghanistan, and everyone complains we have no business there. We help living conditions in Iraq, and everyone complains we have no business there. We go into Mexico, and the outcry will be deafening.

    Americans improved their country (it took a couple of wars, sure). They can improve their own.

    If you`re not a citizen or have the proper Visa, you`re illegal. It`s illegal to rob a bank, so I won`t do it. It`s illegal to assault someone, so I won`t do it. It`s illegal to be in the country without citizenship or credentials, they shouldn`t be here. DUH! It isn`t rocket science. If I`m illegal in Mexico, what happens to me? No rights for illegals in Mexico? Nope.

    Besides, if you`re not a citizen of the United States, then why the hell would you even think the Constitution even applies to you???

    Eh, the trouble with anarchy is it is simply the state between governments. After a while, people always discover that by forming groups, they can accomplish much more and when they start forming groups they start forming rules and laws and ta daaa! a new government is born. It`s the ciiiiiircle of liiiiife!

    I won`t argue that there isn`t problems with government, I just don`t think human beings are capable of just living without creating government, even by accident.

    They`re not paying taxes. I don`t care if the employer does it or not. They don`t file a 1040 they`re not paying taxes. The reason why employers do the "under the table" pay for illegals is because the taxes are cheaper for THEM. So doesn`t count.

    We don`t have to invade Mexico to help there. We wouldn`t have to actually go into Mexico with our military to help them. We can help other countries through peaceful means, so the Iraq and Afghanistan examples are irrelevant.

    Obviously illegal immigration is illegal. The problem is it is much harder to enforce then other crime. It is very hard to differentiate between legal and illegal immigrants without checking all of them. This violates the legal immigrants` rights, unless there is real reason beyond reasonable suspicion.

    Uh, yeah. We would have to invade. Apparently you haven`t seen the drug cartels that are now enforced and entrenched. Fort Hancock, TX ring a bell? It should. Fort Hancock drug cartel war

    In order to `fix` Mexico, we`d have to get rid of the drug cartels. You want to do that on your own, go right ahead. Maybe if we prance in gleefully spreading rose petals and smiling wearing tutus and hugging trees (in this case cactii), they will understand and abruptly drop their rifles and join us singing "Cumbia" or "We are the world".

    If a gringo dares to set foot into Mexico with intentions to change the country and how those people live, they better be packing hard and loaded for bear.

    freeze ray of sense? that comment was almost prepubescent, there are ways of helping without war. are we at war with haiti right now? i doubt it but i would go out on a limb and say we are probably having the largest impact on them anyone has ever had.

    Never said it wasn`t worth it. Said it required a war that would cost billions of dollars. Similar to the one in Iraq, which the majority of people seemed to be against.

    Wow at least the current wave of illegal immigrants are not
    1) committing historical acts of genocide
    2) Stealing the land of the people you massacred
    3) kidnapping people from Africa to work that stolen land
    4) preventing those ex slaves the right to vote for hundreds of years
    5) creating a tax system that provides benefits to the top 1% of society
    6) perverting the political system so that it rewards corporations, even in direct opposition to the welfare of society.

    Man, maybe we should let them run things for a bit!

    How many drug cartels with their own armies are located in Haiti? Last I heard, there aren`t too many. In Mexico and Columbia, you throw a rock in any direction and you hit three of them. They`re coming up through Mexico and hitting our border. Trying to help them fix their country would only result in more deaths. Forcing them back would in turn get them to fix their own country. They have to live there, so they fix their country while we`re up here fixing ours.

    I get the concern about this particular bill.

    However, I do not understand why people are protecting illegal immigrants. Immigrants are fine, illegal ones are not. Someone explain to me why we should be sympathetic to illegal immigrants?

    stardagger - you sir are drating right.

    yohann - haiti does in fact have cartels, but thats not my point , my point which you missed was fighting the cartles directly isnt the only way to get rid of them. NAFTA is one of the reasons central America is messed up, also legalization of pot could devastate cartels. you dont have to fight a war, you just have to think

    you wanna know how we are "helping" in Haiti

    their govt is asking us to stop sending money. why you ask?

    well agriculture has pretty much come to a halt. Farmers who still want to produce good have no more customers. the people are just receiving the hand outs. it`s gotten to the point where people living in the areas that weren`t destroyed are sneaking into the regions with disaster relief to receive free everything.

    Why can`t we focus on our own country?? why do you hippies constantly want to help everyone else when we have our own issues?

    dang hippies

    People want their stuff protected, so they will pay for protection.
    There`s a dispute between two entities, dispute resolution organizations resolve it. All these things can be done without a coercive monopoly (state).

    Other than the false belief that a state is needed, I don`t really see why one would emerge.

    By the way, when you say government, I`m just assuming that you meant the state.

    Seriously, people, enough ingroup bias. There are plenty of people in every population - Americans, Mexicans, Iraqi, liberals, conservatives, everyone - who have done/are doing/will do horrible, messed-up things for selfish reasons. You don`t have to be a tree-hugger or petal-strewer to see a more far-reaching way to respond to all that.

    Yohann: we "helped living conditions" in all those countries by sending the military in. This is all sorts of counter-productive. Instead of going in in a big wave and trying to force change, why not go in bit by bit and work with communities on a local level to help them overcome the issues they`re facing? Work with the government to help it overcome corruption? It`s not a simple or easy solution, but it beats slamming the gates on the rest of the world because we`re rich enough to ignore it.

    Maybe if you didn`t keep them poor, and hunt them down like dogs, but instead educated and trained them, your crime rate wouldn`t skyrocket.

    Counter-productive, eh? Have you asked the Iraqi children that would`ve otherwise been murdered by Saddam what they thought? What about the mass graves our troops have found? Want to tell their wives and kids our troops should never have helped them? Go ahead.

    The point of this thread was to basically say this: "If you`re a US citizen, then the US Constitution applies to you. If you`re here illegally, then leave. If you won`t leave, then we`ll have the police do it for you." Plain and simple.

    This country can`t even help itself let alone take on the entire infrastructure of yet another country where its people won`t even try to make it a better place. Oh sure, we can dump in billions to save banks while giving pink slips to teachers, that`s just `oh so fine and dandy`. If you want to pay to help Mexico, then send in your paycheck first. I`m sure there will be a guarantee it won`t go to corrupt officials there.

    Exactly! The way I see it is that the state is for the most part, is like any other business. Except a regular business competes for your dollar, so it strives to be the best. Unlike the state that can just take a portion of your dollar. If you don`t like what`s being done with your money that the state took then you can protest. But I think we can all agree that it`s easier and more effective to shop somewhere else then it is to protest or even revolt against the state.

    I propose that everything from police, roads, and even courts be provided by the private sector in order to ensure that money is more effectively going where people want it to go. That`s why I`m an anarcho-capitalist.

    @Yohann: Sarcasm is also helpful.

    America is by no means ideal, it`s true. It is full of messed up poo that is very unfair, and the system is completely whacked. But try telling that to people who live on $1 a day, lug dirty water for 2 miles to drink at home, and have no options for higher education or any sort of decent health care. Just because they don`t have oil in their countries or high-profile dictators doesn`t mean they`re fine and dandy. Is our part in the solution to just keep to ourselves until we`re a utopia, then tell everyone we`re ready to help?

    We did do some good in Iraq. Go us. Given the enormous amount of things we did there, it was kind of impossible to avoid some of it being good.

    AnarchistGod, protestimg isn`t your only, or primary method, of tackling a government you don`t like: voting for different people to become the government is the primary method.

    And in my opinion, is better than "shopping somewhere else", as it values your opinion, not what you may or may not have in your wallet.

    The problem with government is that with more people the governement becomes farther and farther removed from the people it governs. That`s why i think the states (I`m for much smaller states) should be the dominent force in america with the federal government having very little to do. Anarchy isn`t possible. I love the idea i really do, self reliance and the such but it won`t work out.

    The police can not come up to any random person and demand ID. They can if you are driving a car and broke a traffic law but you are free in America to walk around without papers. People who commit crimes can be detained until their identities are confirmed but you must commit a crime. Learn your rights. Oh yeah that applies to non-Arizonans haha!

    @AnarchistGod, tbh that actually sounds great hahaha. However, I guess I see a few little problems. One being currency... who prints the bills and decides how much money is out there? Wouldn`t something like that very easily get corrupted? Also, what if, say, I am someone`s employee and they screw me over (randomly withholds my pay or something) What would I do then? Who decides what is "fair" in times where people disagree? Would there still be laws? Who decides what the laws are? (not to say that the government now does anything to help people who have been screwed over by their employers. When I was 17 I worked as a waitress in a restaurant and the guy ended up paying me WAAAY below minimum wage. I went to the government, they decided he owned me $600... but think I ever saw that money? lol)

    Because they are criminals in a sense. Illegal immigrants don`t pay taxes. If you don`t pay your taxes the IRS finds you and will either fine you throw you in jail or both. Get your head out of the clouds and start looking at reality.

    Antagonizer,

    Mexico is not a third-world nation. It is not the responsibility of the United States, which has it`s own societal issues, to "educate and train" people who have sneaked into this country and exploited our system for their own well-being. I understand and sympathize with the drive to provide for your family, but the reality is not solely illegals coming in and working tax-free and draining that money from our economy straight into Mexico. It is the crime. The drugs, kidnapping, murder, etc. If 17 bums walked into your house and some of them were eating and some of them were murdering your family and pets I`m sure you wouldn`t say "oh well I guess I better run to the store to feed them." You would be outraged and try to get rid of them. As a matter of fact you wouldn`t let 17 well-behaved bums break into your house and eat your food. Things sure do change when they are applicable to you on a personal level, huh.

    The problem with this bill is that it is basically racial profiling, which is totally illegal. The cops would be allowed to check the papers of anybody who looks illegal, which would be anybody from Central America.
    And also, quit with the stereotyping of illegals. Not all of them are like that. Mos of them abide to the laws that are here and work hard in the fields. It just seems like they are all barbaric criminals because that is what the media makes them sound like. They do the jobs no citizen to the US would want to do. They are already treated like crap, even legal immigrants. And don`t tell me that I know nothing about the illegal immigrant issue.

I`ve been doing it for five years. My dad has done it his whole life my grandfather did it his whole life. Some of you (i`m sure a lot of you already have) should try a hard days work for once.

    Jobs no one wants to do??? Again this argument? No it`s jobs no one wants to do for $1 an hour. So if the majority of illegals are mooching off of the welfare system and illegally live in a 2 bedroom house with 10+ people in it causing horrible living conditions for their neighbors and such. Dump their kids into our school systems expecting us to work around their inability to speak english, we should just look past the majority of them because some of them are good?

    Currency will also be provide by the private sector. People will use money that has a track record of retaining its value. Unlike the US dollar that lost over 95% of its value ever since the creation of the Federal Reserve. (is that corrupt enough? lol)

    The Federal Reserve is private, but that doesn`t really mean anything, but it`s not like w e can really start own business that provides currency. Being privatized is useless if competition is not allowed.

    How else are our police supposed to crack down on this illegal immigration issue that we have? Its like the insurgents hiding weapons in mosques because they know we cant bomb them, Illegal immigrants are exploiting the law and now complaining about it when we close the loophole that allows them to stay ILLEGALLY in our country.

    If racial profiling were required to remove pedophiles off the streets would you oppose that to?

    "And don`t tell me that I know nothing about the illegal immigrant issue."

    Please, go ahead. Prove you do.

    "They do the jobs no citizen to the US would want to do."

    This is a pretty stupid point, considering that right now most actual American citizens would do damn near anything to have a job.

    Members of my family and friends included, by the way.

    "And also, quit with the stereotyping of illegals. Not all of them are like that."

    No, just the ones that end up causing more problems in a week than all the others in a lifetime.

    "Mos of them abide to the laws that are here and work hard in the fields."

    No. They already broke a damn law by being here. ILLEGALLY.

    There are MILLIONS of people lining up in other countries to fill out paperwork and take tests and get into this country legally. Even in Mexico.

    Why should the illegals just be allowed to waltz in?

    It is NOT racially profiling. Race doesn`t matter. Citizenship does. A canadian being in this country illegally will be treated the same. RACE DOESN`T MATTER!! Call it citizenship profiling. People are using `racial profiling` to make the law something it isn`t: racist. That word gets more people to scream out against it than any other.

    And we did a lot of good in Iraq and Afghanistan. You`re "it was kind of impossible to avoid some of it being good." is simply your opinion. Iraqis were thankful we were there freeing them from Saddam. I`ll admit, some innocents were killed. But compared to the number of innocents killed in the US Civil War and the American Revolution, the numbers are low. I see it as we did a heck of a lot of good, with regretably some wrong moves. How many lives did we save by thwarting the training of future terrorists. Saddam was supporting them financially.

    I used to volunteer at a food bank. It was a small church ran food bank in a big city. It saw sometimes 200 people a day. (Which is a lot for 5-10 volunteers to handle) Majority of them were Mexicans who could not speak English. I came to care for the people who came in regularly and one who spoke English too started volunteering to help us translate. I know why they are here. Living conditions are horrible. The government does nothing to help. America is their salvation. I totally get that. Nobody here does not get that. What I`m trying to get at, is our borders can not sustain such a population increase, our economy can not handle it (See last 8 years). Regardless if they are dangerous criminals or not. We have no way of knowing their criminal background. They need to come here legally. We have programs where amnesty is granted depending on why you came here in the first place. Don`t let your sympathy for them, ruin this country. I`m not heartless just logical.

    Funny, I don`t remember anyone calling me out when I said.

    Even if it was true, and illegal immigrants commit more crimes on average, (which they don`t) they would be less likely be involved those activities if it was easier for them to get a job and making a living for themselves.

    READ THE LAW!

    Here`s what it does. It essentially makes being in this country illegally a crime. If someone is here illegally, they are charged, fingerprinted, and deported. But now that they have been convicted of a crime (basically trespassing), they can never gain citizenship status in the US. They can`t get a VISA, they can`t come through the border and work legally. THAT is what everyone is up in arms about. Apparently, illegals believe it should be okay to hop the fence a dozen times until they`re granted citizenship. If you`re VISA runs out, go back and apply for citizenship.

    There is no `racial profiling`. It blocks those here illegally from EVER getting citizenship.

    Not without probable cause. Carry your credentials (which is the law anyway for everyone, US citizens included) and there`s no problem. They won`t just pick you out of a crowd and `harass` you. I`ve seen many police officers walk by those of Mexican descent and not say a word. They don`t question unless they have a good reason to do so. If I warrant probable cause, they`ll ask me for my ID and question me. I`ll give them their time, do what they ask, and be on my way.

Also, it doesn`t matter what illegal immigrant are here to do, if they wanted to be contributing members of our society, they`d just come legally. There aren`t jobs no citizen would do. That`s retarded. You know nothing about the illegal immigrant issue.

They tend to hang out in large groups of other latinos, they don`t look as healthy or clean cut as others. Not all of them do but you know what I`m talking about.

    ok, my bad, you`re wrong.

    we should not make it easier for illegals to do the same thing that hard working Americans have to do.


    I`ll tell you, it wasn`t easy for me to graduate high school, join the military, learn a trade, buy a house, get laid off, sell the house, rent an apartment.

    "Why are people so eager to immigrate here in the first place, enough so that they`ll bypass the incredibly complex and difficult legal method and risk their own lives/livelihoods to cross the border?"

    Because their country`s a sh*thole and they`re too lazy/stupid to fix their own damn problems.

    Why the hell should they be allowed to run away from everything and come here?

    Our country`s gone through some serious sh*t too, and we pulled through it. Hell, we had a civil war once upon a time.

    And why should WE have to fix everyone else`s problems? Honestly...

    It seems like the world over begs for the US`s help when things get rough, then when they`re back on they`re feet they hate us.

    Thanks for posting this fancy. I think this is a good discussion to have. As much as I reflexively throw up in my mouth a little when I hear many Republican agendas, the right actually has some sound arguments here that need to be heard and considered.

    Personally, I believe that this is an issue of a well-meant law that will likely be abused by the enforcers.

    @Yohann, yes, we`ve read the law. Here`s the law.

    The issue here is that police are allowed to arrest anyone who they have "probable cause" to suspect of being here illegally. Which essentially means, "You look different, so I`m gonna harass you." So, yes, race will be an issue unless there are some additional provisions added to the text to prevent abuse.

    I`m all about penalizing illegal immigrants, but is this the right way to do it? *shrug*

    I will agree that this has the ability to be abused. But in this day and age police officers don`t have a very long leash. Youtube and lawsuits tend to keep cops on the politically correct side of things. Can you think of a better way to do this? Because what has been going on is not working. I read statistics somewhere that around 10,000 illegals cross into AZ a WEEK! could you imagine????

    also legalization of pot could devastate cartels.

    Bullsh*t.

    Maybe that would be the case if the problem was in, say, Jamaica, but most CA cartels don`t make a third of their money from pot.

    It`s Cocaine and other HARD sh*t, and there are reasons that`s illegal, in case you didn`t know.

    "i was illegal once, but now am a US citizen, i was given a chance and now am fully assimilated this is my country i pay taxes,"

    Good for you, but how many NEVER file to become legal?

    How many just stay here all their lives, and how many come over here JUST long enough to give birth so their kids can be American by birth-place?

    Good for your case, you had the chance and took it. But people like YOU aren`t the issue here.

    There`s a dispute between two entities, dispute resolution organizations resolve it.

    And then charges a massive fee for the service.

    You are, unfortunately, an idealist who honestly trust people to do the right thing.

    But when companies are in control with NO regulation, they make the money they need, buy out the other companies, it becomes a monopoly, and from there THEY BECOME the government.

    It`s half of what caused the Great Depression, in case you haven`t studied your history. Not enough regulation.

    You trust that "competition" will keep prices low and quality high.

    That`s not the case, unless there`s SOME governing body to regulate things.

    Know why?

    Because you`re dealing with PEOPLE. LIVING PEOPLE.

    And no matter WHAT it is, people will find a way to f*ck up perfection, in case you haven`t noticed.

    So... You`re an idealist. Which makes you an idiot, in my book.

    Also, check out provision 11-1051 G, which allows anyone to sue police stations that aren`t harassing people <u>enough</u>. Prevailers will get attorney`s fees, which means lots of lawyers will take the case on contingency.

    This will then encourage police officers to overly harass people who "look foreign" in order to protect their own a$$.

    @StphnHrrll, you`re right. This is a huge problem, and needs to be taken care of. I wouldn`t mind a law that was applied to everyone equally (i.e. everyone carry an identity card, like a driver`s license, and police can always ask for it) But laws like this that are laced with words like "probable cause" and "reasonable suspicion" tend to promote bigotry.

    a little history on "anchor babies"
    the 14th amendment was created after the civil war to allow children of slaves to become citizens.

    it was not intended for illegal immigrants to come across and get a free pass by having a kid 5 minutes after crossing the boarder.

    in my opinion section 1 of the 14th amendment should be done away with

    IF the issue everyone is so upset about is the fact that cops can stop people based on how they look then who cares if your legal show your paperwork and be on with it. FREEDOM ISN`T FREE there is a price for freedom believe it or not and that price is the laws created by the governing body you belong to.

    How dare they mozy on in here thinking they`re gonna get a virtually free ride.

    EVERY COUNTRY, EVERY GROUP OF PEOPLE, EVERY PART OF THE WORLD has faced problems, big and small, at one point or another in history.

    And you know what NEVER solved those problems?

    The people running away.

    So for all those who`re coming here to "escape" or some BS, man the f*ck up and do something about it, instead of coming over here and relying on us to make sure the big bad people don`t get you.

    This country is so damn focused on bigotry and racism. You know why racism still lives? Because we allow it. We put so much importance on it. My daughter doesn`t see a difference in people that way. According to her her asian friend has pretty hair, and her black friend has pretty skin. They don`t even know what race is! Because she is growing up in a house where race is not an issue. Not a "racially sensitive" one.

    It is sad that an innocent hispanic may get harassed, but this needs to get done. We need to stop worrying about the minority of legal citizens who may be bothered and lose 5 minutes of their time. It`s for the greater good.

    If your legal...prove it and go on your way big deal.

    Exactly. And, in my opinion, people should carry a form of ID on them at all times anyway, in case of emergency.

    So that ID card that the police want to take a look at to make sure you`re legal, could also help the local hospital inform your family and save your life in the event of, say, a car accident.

    What say you, people who don`t think we should have to carry ID?

    I know of a case where the mother of one of my friends was hit by a car at one point while walking across the street (by a drunk driver, in the middle of the f*cking day no less), and her family didn`t find out she had been killed until two weeks later because she didn`t have her ID on her at the time.

    "We shouldn`t have to carry ID," eh? Say that when a member of your family dies and you don`t get the news until the police take you to a morgue to ID a body that might be theirs.

    The song at first may sound like it`s about a man who slept with the woman next door causing the demise of that woman`s relationship.

    It`s actually a metaphor for our government "screwing us" or something like that.

    I am so deep, right????


    And now it is obvious that I am getting bored.

    You see, most of Latinos are here because of the great inflation that was caused by American companies in Latin America. Aside from that, many are seeking a life away from the puppet democracies that were funded by the United States; places like El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, Colombia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Republica Dominicana, and not just Spanish-speaking countries either, but Haiti and Jamaica as well.

    I`m pretty sure the illegal immigrants are living quite well. It`s the poor bastard still in mexico that need a song so to speak. We should just invade mexico, make it an extension of the US. We could even create borders to add more states. This is a brilliant idea. We could make cocaine illegal and make a huge amount of money!

    You`re never going to stop "illegals" from crossing your border. They will keep coming no matter what if the situation in the US is better, albeit marginally, than it is in Mexico.

    "IF the issue everyone is so upset about is the fact that cops can stop people based on how they look then who cares if your legal show your paperwork and be on with it."

    There`s a difference between stopping someone based upon how they look and ARRESTING someone based upon how they look.

    "Also they`re basing who they talk to on their appearance not their race. If the police were looking for a man with a red nose and curly hair would you shout bigotry against clowns??????"

    Erm, race race is a major part of your appearance. ...and yes, if you created a LAW (not a temporary search for a murder suspect, but an actual law) that would allow police to arrest anyone with a red nose and curly hair, clowns would probably be in an uproar.

    I like Altaru`s suggestion...mandatory ID cards for everyone and all police officers check for it. That`s fair, increases safety, and creates jobs and encourages people to be responsible.

    your government itself is based on the Iroquois league, which later was raped by the settlers and the United States. funny how we took from the natives the best parts of their culture then chased them out of their own house, maybe thats what Americans are really scared of. America is more and more Hispanic everyday.

    Bliznik Actually that`s not true and technically what you said can be construed as racist. I have a friend who looks Mexican but in actuality is Argentin, My brother in law is Mexican but looks Italian and my husband is native American but looks Spanish......
    Not to mention physical appearance differ greatly from a born in Mexico, illegal and born in America but with Mexican roots looks like.

    If you want to make this a race issue when it is not go ahead. Just because the majority of the illegals are in fact from Mexico doesn`t mean I hate Mexicans.


    If any of that made any sense????

    Quote: My guess is that illegal immigrants commit less crimes because they are more worried about getting caught and deported.

    Most people who "get away" with one crime (aka being in the country illegally), generally view the law with contempt or mockery, as the law didn`t stop them from the first crime. How is that deterring them from breaking it again? Illegal immigrants get caught and deported, sure... but what`s to stop them from coming back in?

    Personally, kudos to the author of this note. IAB is mixing humor and politics, and that`s fine, but it`s a tough line to walk. Sites and people who try to do so most often end up either being flippant or getting serious about politics. She felt it was too flippant, so she responded with personal experience, and (most importantly) without resorting to personal attacks. Nicely done.

    Illegal immigrants tend to commit the most crimes. When an immigrant can`t get a job to make money, can`t find work due to background checks, is avoiding INS like the plague, they have to make money one way or another: legal or illegal. Many are caught breaking into cars or homes to find things to pawn. On the legal side of the argument, quite a few go through neighborhoods offering their landscape services (ours from time to time). In fact, many of our neighbors hire them to do landscaping. And most of these guys are teenagers or slightly older working their hands off to get money. Legal? Maybe. I don`t know. I`ve never once seen the police pull up and ask for their ID.

    If you`re in the country illegally and you`re caught, you`re going back. If I was in Mexico illegally and was caught, do you think they`d let me stay and vote and change their national language to `English`? Nooooo.

    "You both clearly have lost some of your opportunity for education by ignoring fundamental laws of economics."

    How the hell do you consider it economicaly beneficial for there to be millions of AMERICAN CITIZENS who can`t get a job because companies aren`t willing to pay them proper wages and benefits in place of some illegal immigrant who works for half the pay, and no benefits?

    All this results in is a widening gap between the rich and poor, in that the rich end up paying less for their workers and make more money themselves, and the poor can`t get a job because the company would have to pay and protect them if the hired a legal citizen.

    I fail to see how that benefits an economy in any way, shape, or form.

    And don`t pull the whole "more people = more money being spent." More legal citizens working means more money being spent too, but you fail to notice that point, don`t you?

    I just assumed you were another one of those idiots making comments about how illegal immigration benefits the country somehow, and from there your comment about "fundamental laws of economics" just served to back that thought up.

    yohann - you are way off base, many studies have proven illegal immigrants do no more crimes than the rest of the population by average. as a matter of fact legal african americans are the ones clogging the prison system but i wont go there because there are tons of problems with the prison system. there are tons of problems with the immigration system. do you know how expensive it is to file for legal status? you are asking people who are literally facing certain death or a life of misery to pay their corrupt government thousands of dollars that they dont have to intercede, meanwhile the US is so inefficient it is easier to deny them legal status than it is to approve a drating visa.

    oh and Bush actually did try to get an immigration reform passed but it was voted down, Obama was one of the people who voted against it.

    these people will not leave, they will claw and tear and cross 2 thousand borders just to get back here. the immigration system needs to be changed to be more humane, the illegals are not a major contributing factor to why citizens dont have jobs. when was the last time you saw a citizen picking beans, doing construction forbelow minimum wage, mowing a lawn for below minimum wage, these people arent here raping america, THEY ARE BEING RAPED BY AMERICA. just like the countries they came from, most hird world countries have been devastated economically and politically by American corporations that have raped the people with below human conditions and you still think they are coming over here to drat us? no they are here trying to survive something we inflicted on them. they deserve a chance to stay they are not criminals!

    You`re article is useless because as I have stated before, even if it was true, and illegal immigrants commit more crimes on average, (which they don`t) they would be less likely be involved those activities if it was easier for them to get a job and making a living for themselves. You can make it easier for them by letting them get work.

    I told you this before and all you did was show me that useless article again.

    just like if my gov raised taxes 300%, that doesn`t mean I can get away with it by not paying. at some point you WILL have to PAY.

    I am Mexican, and I have to say, I agree with the statement behind the sarcasm. I am against any kind of illegal immigration. I am not a hypocrite to say Mexicans who enter illegally the US are different to other Latin Americans who enter illegaly my country. It`s the same damn thing.

    >>It`s not like we would know. No one goes into Mexico illegally. Mexico sucks. Balls.

    Many US citizens come to Mexico because my government is so incredibly moronic to let anyone enter here without a damn passaport. I wish everyone was required a passaport to enter my country: we would get rid of all the American springbrakers to come here to rape and to use drugs, pedophiles, and criminals hiding from your idiotic authorities.

    Didn`t you read my comment? I said they would be less likely to commit crimes if they were allowed to work. That`s why we should get rid of citizenship. Besides they don`t commit the most crime, but it`s irrelevant.

    Ugh, really? You think the general sentiment on IAB is liberal? Well it certainly doesn`t seem so to me.
    I already spent way too long completely unproductively attempting to argue this in the original post about the bill, so I wont go over that again. All I`m going to say is that my argument is not and has never been "I want to let illegal immigrants do whatever they want". That is not what I want. I don`t even mind if illegal immigrants get deported. They have no legal right to be in the country.
    HOWEVER, what I feel is the issue with this bill is that it is not fair to the LEGAL immigrants. They should not have to go through any more trouble to prove that they are legally in the country than a citizen should. And the biggest problem with the bill (and yes, I have read the relevant parts) is that you DO NOT have to commit a crime. I will quote fox news again (because that source seems to work on people who support this bill)

    Continued... "The Arizona bill would create a new misdemeanor crime for failing to have an alien registration document; allow officers to arrest anyone unable to show documents proving their legal residence in the country" link This means that they can make an arrest based on the lack of papers, not for any other crime. K?
    Again, I`m not interested in protecting the rights of illegal immigrants, but the rights of legal immigrants.

    Oh and if that doesn`t work for you, how`s about a little biblical quote (hilarious coming from an atheist, I know):
    "When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt."

    Huh? Didn`t you just describe extortion? lol Either allow me to work, or else I`ll start invading homes, murdering, etc. Boy, you really thought that statement through didn`t you?

    For your information, MANY illegal immigrants DO work, yet tehy still dodge taxes, take advantage of law abiding citizens who DO pay, and use up tax payer funded social services.

    In case you missedmy post earlier, Illegal alliens are THREE - FIVE times more likely to commit VIOLENT crimes - Especially sex crimes such as rape, child molestation, and human trafficking. (Using children as sex slaves etc.

    But sure, let em work and that won`t happen right? I believe the word we`re looking for here is naive...

    "it is not fair to the LEGAL immigrants. They should not have to go through any more trouble to prove that they are legally in the country than a citizen"

    So you`re admitting your post is one sided, and concerned about the CONVENIENCE or lack thereof for one side, while ignoring the safety hazard, billions of dollars lost, and murdering of citizens. All because one portion of the population shouldn`t be "inconvenienced."

    Seems your rants are misplaced. Ever heard of the bad apple spoiling it for the rest of the people? Shouldn`t you then be upset at the illegals who are murdering, raping, stealing, etc that are making this necessary? SHOULDN`T have to happen you`re right. Wrap your brain around the ROOT of what is making this NECESSARY - The illegals, NOT the state of AZ.

    I shouldn`t have to fear for my family safety, and pay taxes towards illegals. Yet it`s forced on me by these illegals. Why aren`t these people protesting that?

    You know what? Illegal immigrants don`t belong in this country. That`s what the Arizona law states. If you don`t live in Arizona, shut the hell up!! If you`re an illegal immigrant, get the hell out!! We don`t want you!! We don`t want any more dead sheriffs or border patrol. We don`t want any more shootings. You screwed things up enough.

    Arizona Sheriff shot April 31st

    So get your illegal immigrant families, pack up your crap, and get the hell out of here! Go make your country a better place. And if there`s anyone who doesn`t like the law or doesn`t like this rant, they can join you!! We don`t want them. As far as I`m concerned, they`re not real Americans anyway. Enough is enough.

    STFU and GTFO!!

    No, it is the law that is the third party here. I never said that the workers are threatening the employer for work. I said they would be less likely to commit crimes if they were allowed to work, which the state won’t allow. Employers and employees should be able to conduct business without the state interfering.

    illegal immigrants DO work

    They all work in the black market. There would be less crimes if they were allowed if the state stopped interfering and allowed them in the white market.

    Heeeeelllllllllllloooo, I’m an anarchist, why would you try to use taxes as a justification? I’m glad that they dodge taxes, good for them. No one should pay taxes. Just because I`m enslaved doesn`t mean they should be.

    Illegal alliens are THREE - FIVE times more likely to commit VIOLENT crimes - Especially sex crimes such as rape, child molestation, and human trafficking. (Using children as sex slaves etc.

    As I told you, no they don’t. Even if they did, they would be less likely to commit crimes if they had a stable job, which the state won’t allow.

    AnarchistGod - Call it a strawman if you like, but it still shows your argument is irrelevant. LESS likely to?

    So let me get this straight... They break OUR laws to get here, and we should accomodate them by giving them jobs, just to appease them so that they will be LESS LIKELY to commit crimes?

    You`re kidding right? That`s borderline my friend. Not to mention, it makes my original comment to you that much more relevant.

    Also, I`d like to hear the logic behind how having a job is going to make hardened criminals LESS LIKELY to rape, kill, etc. Please explain this to me. Especially since so many of the illegals are involved with drug trafficking, gangs, etc. If they have money under the table, why do they need, or want "jobs?"

    "but I don`t think they make any sense."

    Uh, quite simple really. Surprised I`d need to explain this. Let`s put it in even simpler terms then.

    Imagine that you are hosting a party. Everything is orderly, so all is well. But a small group of rowdy individuals show up and blast their music, start breaking things, vandalizing the neighborhood and the cops are called.

    The cops are called 3 more times that night because the rowdy low lifes keep doing what they are told not to, and eventually the cops shut down the party for disturbing the peace.

    Should you be angry at the cops for violating your rights to host a party? Would be pretty childish to be angry at the cops right? That`s exactly what you`re doing now - Seeing as how if the illegals would respect our laws, and stop with the murdering, drug dealing thieving, raping, etc. Enough is enough and now action is being taken. Yet you blame those who are responding to THEIR law breaking.

    You’re worried about crime, then allow them to get jobs and help the economy. How is my argument not relevant?

    So let me get this straight... They break OUR laws to get here, and we should accomodate them by giving them jobs, just to appease them so that they will be LESS LIKELY to commit crimes?

    You’re strawmanning me again! There’s a difference between give and allow. I am NOT saying that the state should give them jobs. I am saying that the state should allow them to get jobs. The state should leave them alone.

    People tend to commit crimes when they’re desperate, but if they are ALLOWED to get jobs in the white market they would not be as desperate. A lot of conservatives are so brain dead. They think that most people commit crimes because they’re bad and not because they’re desperate. If you have a good income why would you risk that?
    Don’t try to use laws to justify your position because laws can be unjust. For example in Nazi Germany it was the law to take away Jews. Did that justify it just because it was the law? No, I didn’t think so.

    Watch the last three minutes of this video. It will help you understand what causes crime. What is the free market

    Let them enter the white market. If they`re in the black market, the only way to enforce contracts is by violence. Just one of many examples of how an unstable income can cause crime rates to up.

    I could chat with you about how parental abuse causes serial killers using your logic. I suppose we should just let serial killers loose here in America too huh? Your argument is quite amusing.

    The age of blame and victims huh? No one is responsible for their own actions.

    How come none of the protestors, or persons on this board whining about the Arizona law has had a problem with the FEDERAL law?

    In case you failed to do your research prior to complaining, here`s a list of what is handed to Immigrants straight from our government on "Your Responsiblities" (i HAVE THE SHEET RIGHT HERE)

    1. Obey all state, Federal and local Laws

    2. Pay Federal, State, and local income taxes

    3. Register with the Selective Service (U.S. Armed Forces) If you`re a male between ages 18 and 26 (See page 11)

    4. Carry proof of your permanent resident status at all times

    Hmmmmm... So all this yelling of "Nazi Germany, show me your papers" and how "unfair it is I must carry proof with me" and yet all along, it`s been RIGHT THERE in the Federal law.

    Double standards anyone? Scary how many people are uninformed.

    Answer something for me Anarchist, as you seem to have put absolutely no thought into the various facets of your argument.

    For example, you claim "desperation causes crime" - Really? So what "desperation" is causing rapes and child molestation? Sex trafficking? Is it desperation for jobs?

    Or perhaps it`s desperation for sex? I guess using your logic, it is now our responsibility to hand them over sex slaves to minimize kidnappings and rape huh?

    How about vandalism, and gang violence? What are those individuals desperate for? Hugs?

    For the third time you strawman me. I never said don’t blame the criminal. I said they would be less likely to enter the black market if they would allow in the white market. If you’re in the black market the only way to enforce contracts is by violence, where as if you were in the white market you can go to a court or DRO. Do you honestly not understand this?

    Where are you getting this idea that I think that people who cause other people to be victims (real criminals) to not be punished?

    "May 02, 2010 5:22:36 AM"

    For the second time I tell you, I’M AN ANARCHIST. If I’m against state law because I’m an anarchist then what the f*ck makes you think I advocate federal law!?!? It’s one thing to disagree with me, but it’s another to not even know my position and then claim I have some sort of double standards.

    That’s different because the state is not stopping people who want to have sex from having sex, but it is stopping people who want to have jobs and employers who want to give jobs from conducting business. So again no, I am not advocating the state to do anything, be it give them jobs or sex slaves. Both of which is a positive action. When did I advocate a positive action??????? I am advocating that the state do nothing.

    But let’s use your sex analogy. Here are the conditions that have to be meant in order to make a comparison. Two people who want to have sex should have every right to have sex. The state is not allowing people who want to have sex to have sex. This causes rape crimes to go up. This is axiomatic.

    Ah, so you admit that you were wrong then when you earlier claimed that if jobs were given to these illegals, then they`d be less likely to commit crimes as desperation causes crime. (A patently vague, and in this case incorrect statement)

    Yet out of the other side of your mouth, you now admit it does not cause sex crimes. Yet illegals rape more than 137,000 women each year. (Those estimates were years ago, they grow each year, and some estimated now top 200,000 for 08, and 09)

    They molest tens of thousands of young children, etc. So if these types of crimes are NOT impacted by jobs, or no jobs, then your statement really doesn`t solve the problem now does it?

    Anarchist, I also find your statement lacking in another area. You failed to consider that close to 70% of the illegals that commit violent crimes here in the U.S. were convicted of an average of 5 or more violent crimes in Mexico BEFORE they came to the U.S.

    I posted that stat, and my sources in the other "Arizona" thread. Knowing this, your comment becomes even more laughable. The criminals are fleeing their country to avoid the law. So you assume they come here and will turn over a new leaf just because a job is now available?

    Most call that delusional. VIOLENT crime is the keyword here. So what happens in a recession like this one? You claimed it was lack of jobs that was feeding these crimes. So in a recession if they couldn`t get a job we should just expect huge increases in murders and theft, etc from these illegals? LOL -What a poorly thought out idea. Seems your "solution" was a lame duck as you failed to consider the implications.

    If they committed a crime before they came here than by all means arrest them. I`m not arguing against that. What I am arguing (PAY ATTENTION) is that the mere act of being here should not be not be a reason to persecute these people. I am also saying that if they were allowed in the white market (like any other legal person) they would be better able to enforce contracts as oppose to using violence in the black market.

    You can expect that from both legals and illegals. I am NOT advocating that you not prosecute people that cause crimes that have a victim. I NEVER said anything like that so again I tell you, stop trying to misrepresent my position.

    I argued against your ludicrous claim that desperation causes crimes, and that giving jobs to these people would be some sort of workable solution.

    Yet your vague assumption completely ignored the hundreds of thousands of victims of crimes that have nothing to do with desperation. Shall I simplify this further for you, or do you get it now?

    I also find it funny that you are so naive as to claim "if they rape someone, just arrest them."

    Huh? You think it`s that simple? Tons of criminals sticking around waiting for the police to show up. These people are protected and assisted in hiding from the cops by other illegals. The problem is a lot more difficult t

    So the problem is, with all these people sneaking in illegally, we don`t have the capability to filter out the hardened criminals. Yet you present "just being here" as a victimless crime. Wow, what a deceptive spin on words, as no one claimed "just being here" is a crime. Now who is mis-representing Anarchist?

    Rather, I stated ENTERING THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY is a crime. Here I`ll make it even easier for you:

    - Immigrants following laws = Good

    - Breaking our laws by entering illegally = Bad

    See, you call it a victimless crime, yet ignore the fact that the REASON for the process is to filter out the criminals. 2,700 murders committed last year by illegals, and nearly 200,000 rapes were victimless? If 70% of those individuals were former criminals and would have been filtered out through proper channels, then I guess it`s not a victimless crime afterall when you dodge the legal channels.

    But you never considered that did y

    I AM TALKING TO A WALL AND HERE IS PROOF!
    Read my comment at "May 01, 2010 8:26:56 PM" where I address the difference between give and allow, but since you`re a wall you continue to use the word give.

    Yet your vague assumption completely ignored the hundreds of thousands of victims of crimes that have nothing to do with desperation. Shall I simplify this further for you, or do you get it now?

    Crimes like theft are usually the act of desperation. The fact that some crimes are not cause by desperation is irrelevant.

    If 70% of those individuals were former criminals and would have been filtered out through proper channels, then I guess it`s not a victimless crime afterall when you dodge the legal channels.

    No, it`s STILL victimless to cross the boarder and be here. It`s NOT victimless to have committed something like murder in Mexico and hide here.

    SIGH - Honestly. Please, please, PLEASE try to not just read, but actually COMPREHEND what is being said. I cannot imagine why I would need to explain such a blatantly obvious statement as "you call it a victimless crime".

    Guess I`ll have to get used to spelling things out for you:

    - You claimed that being here illegally is a victimless crime. Remember that? Good job, let`s continue whilst we have momentum.

    If bypassing our countries laws and sneaking into our country means that individuals cannot be properly screened, and thus murders, rapists, etc. are stealing into our country, it is no longer a victimless crime.

    You could argue that many are not criminals, and thus it`s victimless, but hey, this is the real world Anarchist, and criminals are a fact of life.

    If we had secured boarders, and made it more difficult for criminals to get in, then we`d have lower crime rates now wouldn`t we? Not victomless.

    Also, you seem to have failed economics 101 - You call being in this country illegally victomless, yet you ignore (Yet again) the financial impact this has on Citizens. Millions of people sneaking over, taking advantage of our tax payer funded services? Many are paid under the table, so they pay no taxes.

    Hmmmm - Let`s see:

    Millions taking, taking, taking - whilst not paying into the system = not good. (Just keeping it simple for ya bud)

    Victims - Crushing financial burdens supporting dozens of programs that are being abused by the entitlement mentality that is often carried over by these criminals.

    So we have now identified:

    Sex crimes - Theft - Violence - Gang violence - Drugs - Increased tax burdens on law abiding citizens.

    All of this could be greatly minimized by proper screening and security.

    A mexican kills another mexican in Mexico. That`s a crime with a victim. That same killers sneaks in America. That`s still a victimless crime despite the fact that he`s a killer.

    If we had secured boarders, and made it more difficult for criminals to get in, then we`d have lower crime rates now wouldn`t we? Not victomless.

    Yeah, you could totally argue that, but you can`t say that we should socialize protection because socialism sucks and doesn`t work.

    Looks like someone failed debating 101. Know your opponent. I already told you this, but I guess I`ll say it again because you brought it up again. (maybe you forgot, maybe you`re stupid) I`m an anarchist.

    Do anarchists advocate taxes?
    No.

    Do anarchists advocate citizenship?
    No.

    So why are you using this argument against me? Sure it can work against some stupid liberal, but I`m not some stupid liberal.
    If there was no citizenship or taxes this wouldn`t be a problem in the first place now would it.

    I already told you this in my comment on "May 01, 2010 1:54:52 PM".

    I can taste the irony.
