Of course the US Constitution relegates immigration to the Federal government.
The federal Government is supposed to set the immigration policy, and it has...
Those who wish to come here must get in line and apply. And they must carry
identification with them at all times, to name a few points of existing
immigration law.It only makes sense to have states help with
enforcement of Federal immigration laws. States all have cadres of laws
enforcement... the feds don't... except for ICE and the FBI. The FBI has
its hands full with other issues and ICE could actually be closed down letting
states do law enforcement.Again, immigration policy has already been
set and there are federal laws on the books on how to proceed. All that is
needed is enforcement... and it's fairly obvious that the current
administration does not want enforcement in order to secure the Hispanic vote in
Nobody is against immgration. This is an argument against ILLEGAL immigration.
This is a fight against breaking laws, forging documents, drug pipelines, living
off the backs of working Americans, voting without citizenship and honestly
it's about the democrats not willing to be honest and fair to ALL americans
in the politcal process. It is misleasding and completely false to
say what AZ. is doing is anti-immigration. They are not fighting the legal
process already established. They are fighting illegal immigrants who are taking
advantage of American generosity.
I hope the Supreme Court does rule in favor of the State of Azand aloud the
state to start the process of deporting the illegals back to were they came from
to open more jobs to the people of the state. I aslo agree with the comments
posting about the president wants the vote of these people to stay in power. I
future believe that if you are here illegally you should face the conquest, even
if it means your whole family gets deportedor broken up, you knew they were here
illegally and you chose to marry them then you need to suffer the conquest of
the laws too.
Hopefully NOW the states can start with comprehensive immigration
enforcement.Its long overdue.ALL are welcome if they do
it legally. NO MORE trespassing and stealing services please!
The argument "deport illegals so we can have more jobs" is fundamentally
flawed. If somebody came to my house and offered to clean it I would not kick
him out so that I could do the cleaning myself. If people want to come to build
America we should welcome them. We need better immigration laws that reflect
this idea. Currently we have immigration through family ties, random green card
drawing, and a long messy process that only big employers can handle to bring
skilled workers in. We do not have a legal way for a young man with a dream to
participate in the building of America to fulfill his dream unless he happens to
marry an American woman. If he is already married to somebody from his country,
tough luck. I maintain that the root of our problems, not just immigration, is
that we've lost our drive to achieve. As a result, we see people who
achieve as competition rather than contribution and do not welcome them.
@Sasha Pachev:"If somebody came to my house and offered to clean
it I would not kick him out so that I could do the cleaning myself."If that person came to your house to clean and then decided to stay on
and move in with you, would your comment be the same?"If people
want to come to build America we should welcome them."They
don't come to build America. They come to suck up government largess...
i.e., free education, free healthcare, etc."We do not have a
legal way for a young man with a dream to participate in the building of America
to fulfill his dream..."His dream should be that of building his
own country. If these so-called smart, motivated, and capable immigrants come
to America, what of the condition of the country the leave behind?
We believe in being honest in our dealings with the public...if they are here
illegally, they are not honest..if they want to be part of the United States of
America they can do it legally. The only reason Obama is showing support of the
illegals is not because he cares, he only wants those votes and he doesn't
care what he has to do to get them. Now I ask you, is that the kind of a
President we want to torment our Nation with any longer? I say NO he has no love
for our Country or our values..he is an embarrassment to our United States of
America and hopefully this sad saga will end in November and a man of integrity,
who is a citizen of the United States of America(not a dual citizen which is
against the Constitution of the United States of America) will be elected and we
will again feel hope in our future and our children and grandchildren's
