Report Shows Hispanics Leaving Arizona In Droves

June 16, 2010 by  

Report: Hispanics leaving Arizona in drovesArizona’s recently passed immigration bill has prompted many Hispanic families to leave the state before the controversial law goes into effect in late July.

While state authorities have yet to release any official statistics, many schools and businesses have indicated that a large number of legal and illegal residents of Hispanic descent have packed up and left Arizona in the last few weeks, USA Today reports.

Jeffrey Smith, superintendent of the state’s Balsz Elementary School District, told Fox News that 95 students have left the system since the law was signed by Governor Jan Brewer in late April. In contrast, only seven children dropped out of the district during the same period last year. More than 75 percent of Balsz Elementary School District students are Hispanic.

Smith noted that the majority of migrating Hispanics—both legal and illegal—may be headed for a neighboring state where immigration laws are less strict.

"The statement is something like New Mexico is the way Arizona used to be," he told the news source. "I heard one lady say she might go back to Mexico."

Brewer’s spokesman Paul Senseman said last week of the exodus, "If that means that fewer people are breaking the law, that is absolutely an accomplishment."

    If this is true, then OOORAH! Does this mean the state of Arizona is more competent and has more functional LEADERSHIP than the sons-of @*#^*#! in Washington? YES!
    So WHAT is the problem with this? If you CARE about Washington doing its CONSTITUTIONAL JOB, this is GREAT news! If you are a card-carrying progressive or a traitor, this might be bad news. Can you say tough @#*^?
    GO ARIZONA! SCREW WASHINGTON! Score ONE for the American people! Score NONE for those who hate freedom and the American people! GO TEAM, GO! Pour it on! Now the other states can join the club, too!

      I couldn’t agree more. The funny thing is I keep seeing “Both legal and illegal Hispanics..” They are both leaving because they are an invasive force and are tied directly together. Most are illegal with offspring born in the US who are under the current spinless, corrupt Government we have in place, legal. But if the parents are deported…..So, they all run and hide as they KNOW they are an invasive parrasitic force. As to the groups that say they do the tasks Americans don’t want to do such as farming. Didn’t Nafta deport or cause most of our farms to stay profitable to go to Mexico?? Along with a lot of our heavy industry?? Also along these lines there have been three past (Real) Presidents who have deported the illegals from this country. I say lets do it again. The reasons back then were to make jobs for the returning troops. Well??? Nuff said.

      • jimminety Bop

        Opponets of deportation keep screaming about the Constitution.
        Presidents Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower each deported over one million, in the 40′s the U.S. Government rounded up American-Japanese and put them in camps.
        Has the Constitution changed since those acts? I am tired of the bleeding hearts and the political correctness – do what has to be done for the good of this country and quit worrying about the others and what they will say.
        Or will wrong win out and those in authority will be saying “At least we did the p.c. thing” as they watch the country going down the drain?!
        Get some B _ _ _’s and do what is right for us for once and not for your re-election and wallet.

        • Jana

          Yes, but where are they leaving too? Probably to another state, not back to Mexico. Sigh. We desperately need our government to stand up to the plate and enforce the law of the land.
          I do hope this stops the illegals from coming over though. The date this law goes into effect can’t come soon enough.

          • http://LibertyDigest Craig A

            They are headed to New Mexico. I can not remember his name, but he works with the tourism industry in NM and has stated, that New Mexico is a sanctuary to whomever wants to be there. I read this in the Phoenix Business Journal as they were talking about New Mexico taking conference meetings away from AZ. There have been segments in our culture that has turned it’s back on AZ over this. AZ has thought about fighting back with refusing to sell electricity to California. But how do you twist arms when they are entities like a Black Fraternity and the Black Accountants Association snubbing Az because of the new law. I am not racist, just mentioning the 2 Conference Meetings that have already been lost to the State of AZ.

          • meteorlady

            Is there “White” equivalents to these organizations? If not they are pretty racist in my opinion. Also, if they are leaving AZ then they are coming to a town near you so be prepared to write you state leaders and complain. Am not surprised about New Mexico – they governor is hispanic – though I always considered him American until recently when he condemned AZ for their law.

          • StankX

            Look just because there is a “black” accountants group or any other group DOES NOT MAKE IT RACIST…lets be real, this country is not equal. ABC,CBS, NBC, and Fox..all are not called main stream “white’ media..but that’s what it is. A station like B.E.T. (black entertainment television) as station I personally don’t really like, has more white people on it per capita than mainstream tv has blacks…yet its called racist. Because this is not an equal country for all these things, (BET), happen. If this was a truly fair, (no discrimination), country then there never would be a need for minorities to have their own groups, because we wouldn’t have “minorities” with true equality for all. I’m not a huge supporter of the bill, but somethings gotta give. I say we do what the pasty presidents have done…send em all back if they are illegal….no questions asked. You wanna be an American…than F#$#k#n learn our language and customs. America has ONE language, (not including native Americans), and its English, not Spanish….Lastly…SAY “HELL NO!” TO THE AMERO, (LIKE THE EURO) WHEN IT COMES!

        • Gregg Patterson

          Dear Jimminety Bop.
          Although i completely agree with you on what you are saying about past presidents deporting thousands of illegals to make jobs for returning troops they did not put Japanese Americans in camps for that reason. The reason they put the Japanese in camps was because they were unaware of the immediate danger because of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Many rumors at that time were that Japanese “dignitaries” were in the US after the attack so the reason they put them in camps such as the one at the Pomona Fairgrounds in Pomona, CA was not because of immigration but because of the attacks on Pearl Harbor.

          • Jimmenity Bop

            Gregg, I realize the reason as to why they were rounded up and put there. My argument was that trying that today with all the political correctness would set the bleeding hearts off like a raped ape! Everyone knew back then that Japan was an enemy that intended to destroy us and so didn’t put up to much of a gripe about this being done.
            Was there a potential spy in that group that would have changed the outcome of the war? Who knows, but doing it insured that there was litle chance of any one in that group doing harm to the U.S.
            I have to complain the way they were treated after the war was over. They lost everythig that they had gained uop to the time that they were incarcerated.
            Point is – it was us or them and we took that action. That’s the trouble with the U.S. today. They have forgotten how to fight a war.
            There were many Japanese, Italians and Germans that did not agree with what their government was doing but that didn’t stop us blowing them to hell in the bombing raids along with those that were rooting for the cause of their government.
            Afganistan, Pakistan, Iran and all those others that wish to see us gone would be the target of the every plane, bomb and missle that we can scrape together if I had anything to do with it! Live Free Or Die! I am tired of the U.S. groveling to these bastards!

        • BOE

          Maybe once we get rid of the illegal hispanic we can then get rid of all the muslims. Yes I said all!! There are no muslims that will stand with America and our freedom.

          • http://google Nancy

            I agree with you. Look who we have has President BO he wants the mexicans here for the vote in 2012. That is the reason they are fighting against AZ. Our civil rights. BO wants to run again so he can finish the job of bringing down the U.S of America. He is prejudice and admits now he is muslim. He was raised in a 3rd world country and always has hated America. Why do you think he has done nothing about the oil spill. 13 countries some with the equipment needed to help clean up and stop the leak offered he said we do not need help. HAS HE DONE ANYTHING MET WITH TOP SCIENTIST OR PEOPLE THAT ARE MORE EQUIPPED TO HANDLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS. NO NO NO THIS WAY HE CAN IMPOSE HIS CAP AND TRADE ON AMERICA AND FINISH WHAT HE STARTED IN BRINGING US DOWN FOR HIS IDEOLOGY IDEA OF RUNNING THE NEW WORLD ORDER. IF YOU DONT THINK SO. DO SOME STUDYING ON HIM AND HIS CZARS AND BOOKS THAT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT ALL THIS. GROW UP AND GET SMART AND SAVE OUR COUNTRY. MUSLIMS WONT DO IT THEY DISRESPECT EVERYTHING WE STAND FOR AFTER ALL THEY GET 72 VIRGINS WHEN THEY KILL AMERICANS. RIGHT

          • Winnie

            Boe, it’s people like you who are to blame for how the outside global views United States. If it were up to you, I believe that only white,christian people would live there in America. Too bad you don’t have anywhere to send the Native Americans before North America was “discovered”.

      • Angel

        OR…they are LEGAL, who have sent for their families who are illegal yet. At any rate, whoever does NOT support the law, they have SOMETHING to hide…YES? I think so!

        • Angel

          BTW…I LIVE in Az…65 miles north of the border. I love out governor! She rocks. Arm me and send me to the border….I`ll stand guard! I am tired of this crap!

      • 45caliber

        Most LEGAL people of Spanish descent are also in favor of them going home. I work with a bunch of them. As one told me, “I’m an American. They aren’t!”

        What the article is saying – to me – is that by passing this law they are harming a lot of good Americans. Yeah, right.

        • Jana

          45caliber,
          I received this as an email. I am not sure who really wrote it, but it is still relevant. It is supposed to have been written by a legal Mexican immigrant.

          “If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland , or for an airline flight, and when you got to your assigned seat you found someone else was in that seat, what would you do? You would call for a person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat removed. You would properly be asked to show your ticket, and you would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that seat. The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, which they would not be able to produce. They would be called “gate crashers” and they would properly be removed.

          Now in this huge stadium called the USA we have had millions of gate crashers. We have been asking security to check for tickets and remove the gate crashers. We have been asking security to have better controls in checking at the door. We have asked security to lock the back doors. Security has failed us. They are still looking the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full price!

          In “section AZ”, of “Stadium USA “, we have had enough of the failures of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and properly remove those who do not have tickets. Now it seems very strange to me that so many people in the other 49 “sections”, and even many in our own “section” do not want tickets checked, or even to be asked to show their ticket! Even the head of Security is chastising us, while not doing his own job which he has sworn to do.

          My own ticket has been bought and paid for, so I am proudly going to show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the gate crashers to be asked to show their tickets too. The only reason that I can imagine anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is that they are in favor of gate crashing, and all of the illegal activities that go with it, such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder, human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts that we are trying to prevent with our new legislation. Is that what I am hearing from all of the protestors such as Phoenix Mayor Gordon, US Rep. Grijalva, even President Obama? If you are not in favor of showing tickets, (proof of citizenship, passport, green card, or other legal document) when asked, as I would do proudly, then you must be condoning those illegal activities.”

          You just can’t argue with good common sense.

          • Margaret

            Great analogy! Look how many sailors, marines, airmen, and soldiers have given their lives to protect our seats. I, retired Air Force, paid for mine a long time ago.

      • John

        TP you’re an idiot.

        I am of Hispanic dissent my father is a WWII veteran.
        I support AZ’s immigration law and I am a staunch right wing conservative, don’t pigeon-hole everyone of Hispanic origin with or as illegals!

        • meteorlady

          John – you are a good American – Thanks for your comments.

        • http://aol wayne a

          john,theres always idiots like that.he’s probably also against blacks,jews,people of asian decent etc.most americans are not against anyone from any country settling in the US as long as they do it legally.

          • Patti

            AMEN TO YOU WAYNE!!!!! That’s ALL we want in AZ and in America!!!!!

            Wayne a,
            I agree, as long as I don’t hear them b!tching about the house the government GAVE them or the job the government FOUND for them!!! We have a few boat people here that are doing that!!! If you don’t want to work your assets off for what you have then stay where you are!!!

    • http://stevenartus2@gmail.com steven artus

      The bill Jan Weber signed into law ( she should run for the presidency ) had a very profound effect on what is now happening in Arizona, but I also think there is also a lot of help comming from Mexico. Did you know that the illustrious president Phillipe Calderon, issued a more or less order to the Mexican People, to wit,
      “BOYCOTT ARIZONA UNTIL THAT LAW IS REPEALED”?. GOOD LUCK PHILLEPE!!!!!
      No matter what he says, some will heed his warning, but most will keep on coming, maybe not to Arizona, but still to the USA.

      • Ellen

        If the illegals (and legals) go to California, for instance, good! They might eventually get their fill of these criminal parasites and take another look at their stupidity in raping their neighbors to pay for criminals. Then again, maybe not. Maybe the fluoridated water is doing its work in dumbing people down. Somehow, this utter insanity has to stop and it will not stop until WE, THE PEOPLE, stand up and are counted.

        I am standing up and being counted locally by asking questions of our local city council. Their response is to threaten, intimidate, tap phones, invade computers, follow us with undercover cops (at taxpayer expense!) and personally attack those who DARE to question their allegiance to the UN and ICLEI and Agenda 21. There are so many weak people in power who use their positions to rip away our inalienable freedoms and liberties while they line their pockets. THIS, ALSO, MUST STOP. As I said, it WILL NOT STOP until we investigate what is going on at the local level and stand firm in great numbers.

        • atlas shrugged

          You are a bunch of cowards. You know immigrants come from countries with education systems better than ours. You don’t want to compete.

          • WarriorH

            Does include illegal immigrant’s? Your correct, let’s make a new law making it illegal for any foreigner to attend any school in America. Why should any foreigner subject themselves to inferior education?

            I’m going to send your idea on to my congressperson immediately.

          • Shasta

            sorry atlas, that is the MOST IGNORANT ANSWER I HAVE EVERY READ ON HERE…….PINHEAD

          • JC

            Yeah Right….it’s got nothing to do with these very educated people coming here to be parasites and criminals. “Atlas Shrugged”…you don’t rate the moniker and are very probably an ACORN stooge.

          • StankX

            Friggen Moron! Thats why were ever there’s higher % of illegals..the scholastic scores drop….SUBSTANTIALLY! Maybe its just the illegals from south of the boarder….REALLY..SO MEXICO HAS A BETTER EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM THAN WE DO? I was thinking of trying to get my son into an Ivy League school ..you know..Harvard, Yale, but (offensive word removed) that…I’ll send him to school in Mexico…YEA THATS THE TICKET….(offensive word removed) DUMBA**!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            atless,
            Yeah Wright!! That’s why people just over the border were sending their kids across the border into the U.S. to go to school!!! Dont be mentally deficient!!!

      • Jana

        steven a,
        I wish he would issue an order to boycott the whole United States. I won’t hold my breath though.

      • meteorlady

        Well that’s nice – I plan on going there next week for a trip and stopping for a little golf and Grand Canyon visit. What I don’t plan on doing is EVER going to Mexico again for a vacation.

    • Shasta

      ABSOLUTLY!! Well said………and to the Illegals, DONT LET THE ROCKS HIT YA IN THE ARSE!…..Governer Jan is my Hero!

    • WarriorH

      These people need to relocate to Illinois. We’re in danger of losing Obama’s senate seat to a republican. Hurry!

      • http://?? Joe H.

        WarriorHY,
        Watch it, you risk Claire’s ire with that remark!!!!!

        • Claire

          Joe H–Funny!!! My ire? Naw. Never. lol I have lived in Illinois almost my whole life, I know the reputation for corruption in this state. The decent and honest people never run for an office in Illinois. They wouldn’t get elected! Heaven forbid if we EVER had an honest person in office here!! It will never happen. I voted for a Republican in the primaries and he turned out to be a real idiot. Now the other one tells all kinds of lies about himself, won an award, was in the service, you name it! Kirk is nuts. And Brady wanted to kill animal shelter dogs and cats inhumanely. I realize not all people are animal lovers, but this tells me a lot about a person’s character in many ways.
          The Republicans in Illinois are RINOS, they are just as pathetic as the Democrats. I would run for office but I don’t have the money and besides I wouldn’t be elected, I’m too honest. To get elected a person has to have the backing of the politicallly corrupt machine.

      • Claire

        WarriorH– Chicago can have them. They would fit in quite nicely. And the Republicans in Illinois are just like the Democrats. They all put their pants on the same way, one leg at a time.

    • nolan

      i couldnt have said it better. if all these people were legal tax paying citizens, then it would be a different story, but as i say, if you are not a U.S citizen then you do NOT deserve U.S rights. im not a political person because the american citizen has no say with washington. thank goodness for jan brewer. taking us back to the day when we can say were proud to be standing up for something.

  • Rich

    They need to all leave the US

    • http://LiberttyDigest Bruce D.

      Or go to LA or SF. That would be fun to see if a million or so showed up there. This is a great blow for those who repeatedly say nothing can be done about the problem because there are too many. Most will want to go home if the incentive to stay here goes away. The only question is will our politicians take away the incentive they are giving Mexicans to come into the USA and break our laws. Or will the politicians continue to support open borders by incentives and a do nothing policy.

      • Barb

        Bruce D I agree with you and unfortunately I think your last sentence is what will remain in force. But that would be fun to see the flood of illegals going into California wouldn’t it?

        • Laina

          The influx has already shown an increase here in Texas. Especially with Austin being a safe haven. lol. Arizona is on its way to a full recovery. We have several Native American tribes in Arizona that will benifit from the illegals leaving in a variety of ways. And will make Arizona sucessful.

          Desbite what the government wants you to believe, you are not and do not have to be dependant on gonvernment. And I believe that Arizona can and will show the world (and is)that there is teeth behind their bark. And they will bite. All they did is “claim their territory/hold their ground” PEACEFULLY”. In dog language. Arizona is now leader of the pack. Not washington. Obama and crew lost that right a long time agao.

          Go Aerizona!! Stay Strong!! And Lead on!! We are behind you one hundred percent.

        • kate8

          Barb, that’s not funny! Not all of us in California are progressive nut jobs!

          I was born and raised here and want to take my state back! Progressives are mostly concentrated in L.A. and the S.F. Bay area, although they have been spreading around over the years. Interesting, they are coming to towns like mine to escape the high population of the liberal cities – from excessive immigration! They are a pack of hypocrites!

          Please, folks. There are millions of sane people here still. Our state has been hijacked. Don’t wish bad things on us! Pray for us! We are trying to hold down the fort!

            Kate8, Sorry, you are right of course! When I think of CA. I think of Pelosi and Boxer and the Hollywood types, the big mouths! What I really want to see, and my answer to Bruce just show my frustration, is to see these illegals escorted back out of our country for good. Sorry I upset you, I’ll think twice before I go off again! I hope we’re still friends!

            Hey Barb, it takes more than a blog to upset me! Besides, I knew you just weren’t thinking.

            I live just a few blocks from the border, and I am all for AZ’s SB 1070, for all of you in California AKA, “Mexifornia”. You have in the law of California 834b section of the Penal Code, which is the same as AZ’s 1070.. Get with it and demand that it be enforced, I am sure that a Statewide Movement is in order.

            unfortunately there are so many illegals in California (Mexifornia) that it may take armed force by the officials of the state to oust them. Many are members of gangs and are better armed than the police and citizens alike!

          • nolan

            we have people in power that support others that break the law because its the ones in power that ARE the ones breaking the laws. politicians are slime balls that only do whats good for popular vote or what can advance their careers. jan brewer stands up in a state full of mexican illegals and says “get out”. obviously not a popular decision but she is doing what needs to be done.

Not to mention we conservatives are bombarded daily by so many people around us who have no respect for our views or values.

            I agree with you 100%. WTH should you leave when you have worked your butt off to achieve what you’ve got. I live in a “red” section of the blue state Oregon. When you’ve got roots, and family and friends, leaving is not the answer. Just work on getting rid of the liberals. We’ve got them isolated into a few counties around Portland and Eugene (both college cities) and to one blue county in the south (also a university area) Those liberal socialist f**ks can’t make it anywhere except for densely populated areas where they have free housing, transportation, free services of all kinds, and some liberal politicians to take care of wiping their butts, and noses, and all their wants and needs cuz they can’t do anything for themselves.
            Hang in there Kate. If you are in a mostly conservative area, and there are liberals living near you, make THEM move. There are ways to do this lol ;-)

They are so plentyful now they are thinking about opening hunting season on them. We also have some very big Boa Constrictors & Pythons we need to get rid of, so filling a moat with them sounds good. It would also keep the animal activists off of our backs (they don’t want them killed, the alligators I mean).

    GREAT! They don’t seem to want to assimilate anyway, so this is great news. Most right thinking people believed this would be the result so now we have proof. Personally, I still don’t understand what Washington does not understand about the value of protecting our borders. That is actually supposed to be one of their primary functions. Instead, they are more interested in whether or not someone can get an abortion, or whether or not the 10 commandments are publicly displayed in a court room, or if gay peoples rights have been violated, etc…. I can’t wait till the fall election……war cry: “Thow the Bums OUT!”…especially the career politicians.

      BB, there is a reason for that. The DC agenda (red and blue) has been to water down American values, freedom and liberty in order to soften the way to Global Government. It’s never been more important to exercise our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.

        Well said, JC……it’s perfectly understandable when you lift up the rocks and see what is really being done; the majority of them are NWO shills and utterly corrupt. The city government here in Fort Collins, Colorado, is almost all sold out to ICLEI and the UN agenda. They are bankrupting the city and the people are clueless and what’s more, really don’t care all that much.

        Those of us who are questioning these criminals are being followed, phones tapped, cell phones interfered with, threatened, intimidated, harassed……all at taxpayer expense. BUT, if we do not stand up for what is RIGHT, there will be no turning back for this city. It’s all being done in the name of the global warming scam, green crap, sustainability, and so forth. This organization (ICLEI) is everywhere, working beneath the surface, using the local environmental groups to destroy businesses and continue the destruction of personal freedom and liberty.

        “I am a Muslim,” Obama Tells Egyptian Foreign Minister Gheit

        Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, in which President Obama told him that he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the stepson of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

        In 1968 the Air Force Academy published the THREE rules of takeover of the US writen by the American Communist Party about 1925 or so. The ACP said that the rules were still active in 1968.

        They were:

        1) Destroy the ruggedness of the American people by concentrating their attention on spectator sports and sex. (football, baseball, etc.)

        2) Take control of the news media and use it to prevent the population from knowing what is going on in their legislative halls and tear down the image of any natural leader the people might wish to follow. (Does Palin’s attention by the media come to mind?)

        3) Disarm the population through gun control.

      Our governor has said it’s time to stop worrying about the social issues and get down to the nitty gritty, Unemployment and jobs and lower taxes.

  • Jane M

    I am all for what Arizona has done. All states, not some, need to adopt this plan. I have no problems with foreigners being here. I have a problem with them being here illegally. They exhaust our school system and not to mention our health care system. Workers now in some states are being furloughed because the state has no money. Why is that? While, it is getting increasingly difficult for Americans to get jobs, adequate health care, and retain their housing; these illegals come here and get medicaid, section 8 housing, a job, and live like a king. Isn’t it so ironic that illegals can rent an apartment or house through the system, while Americans lose their houses. ICE needs to get tougher also, and recognize that there a lot of bogus marriages in the country. Come up America, step up. Let’s take our country back. If we are supposed to be the super power of the world and police other countries, we have to start policing here at home first.

    • gary

      You should care about foreigners that come here legally. That is primarily what has happened to us. They come here from mostly socialistic and muslim countries so when they vote, well you are now experiencing it. We need to close immigration to a trickle for about ten years for us to recover, and then open it slowly. I do not believe we need immigrants.

      • Allan

        When I voted in person I had to show ID in Oregon. Now it’s vote by mail, so you only have to “certify” that you are you.

      • kate8

        Steve, it used to be the law that one had to show ID to vote. The dems claimed it was discriminatory and had it replaced with the “motor voter” law, which allowed anyone, including illegals, to vote without having to show ID.

        Now, any sane person would know that if someone had no ID, they shouldn’t be voting. But the democrats have to rely on the homeless, uneducated, mentally impaired, illegal and dead to stay in power.

        It’s a sad time when government is able to get away with such nonsense. One really has to be lacking brain cells to go along with idiocy like this.

When does the Democratic party realize, unless this man resigns, and does it fast…this party is almost finished…and once a demo…even if Acorn gave me thousands, I would never vote for the dem party again…

    • Allan

      Part of the argument for illegals is that certain services and goods would be hurt, that agriculture would suffer, etc. The question is, are you willing to have less of certain services and products? My answer is yes, because it is the right thing to do. The goods and services that aren’t economic will adapt or fail. New services and goods will appear. That’s free enterprise.

      It brings up the larger question about government services. In the states teetering on bankruptcy, every bond or tax issue is presented with the idea that it is cruel to make cuts. In my experience, a lot of what America is about comes to the surface in these situations, and more often than not, the new service or product is on a better footing!

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Allan,
        It was also asked if you would be willing to pay more for certain goods and I said yes as it would be balanced out by lower taxes by not paying for services for illegals and lower medical bills when the hospitals don’t have to absorb the costs of non-payment by illegals!

      • American Citizen

        It’s a myth that the illegals take jobs Americans won’t do. It’s hard for our teens and low income/welfare people to find jobs. I’m so tired of the excuses given for letting them in and letting them stay.

  • Kathryn

    Illegals need to go back to their homeland and demand Human Rights there. No-one can be serious about going to another Country illegally
    and claim a right to demand Human Rights, Illegals are stealing America’s Resources, which is not fair, nor legal, We the People understand that our Country is being invaded, we are in many dangers
    Our President has a responsibility to protect our Citzens and our Country, this President needs to be impeached, we need a President that does the number #1 job to protect our Counrty and keep it safe
    We Cannot trust, nor count on this President, nor the current adminstration, their idealogies and agenda’s are first and foremost on their radar, they don’t even acknowledge our Counrty is failing and falling into the pits of destruction.

        The reason is that every time he opens his mouth he shows what he is. He’s not as smart at people think he is. He has no executive experience which with this oil catastrophe shows.

          • kate8

            JC, I hope I won’t be chastised for going off topic for a moment, but speaking of civil disobedience…

            Last eve a census worker came to my house (4th time) to get me to complete the form. I told him I reported the number of persons living at my address, and that was all I was going to answer. He said that the dept. told him that “refusal is not an option”. I asked, “by what law?” He couldn’t answer.

            I invoked my right to remain silent.

            We actually had a nice conversation. He was a retired cop. He understood where I am coming from.

            I have always been courteous and friendly, but simply held my ground. I realize that the info they want is readily available, but they are testing for compliance. I failed the test, and it may come back to bite me, but we must draw a line in the sand or we will lose all.

          • JC

            Everyone needs to do what you did. Answer the census only in as much as the Constitution authorizes it.
            The rest of the info is for marketers which is symptomatic of fascist government.

          • 45caliber

            We also need to answer as to Race: We are AMERICANS.

          • JC

            That’s the only answer anyone should be putting for “Race”.

          • kate8

            45 and JC, No, no, no! Since the numbers are all the census is supposed to ask, we should not answer ANY other questions in ANY way! Period!

            They are not supposed to ask about race, creed, religion, occupation, etc. etc. etc. To answer it at all is to comply.

            We need to answer one and only one question: how many.

          • kate8

            BTW, I asked the census guy (he was a supervisor in the dept) what became of the GPSing of all of us.

            He told me that the gov’t purchased 600,000 GPS hand-held GPS devices, and spent millions on workers going around house to house, and it ended up a mess. Coordinates were wrong, the devices gave faulty readings…they threw it all out. A total waste of our tax dollars.

            At least, this was the story he told me.

            When we don’t complete the census form and mail it back, they hire people to follow up by going door to door. This situation has created a few jobs in a sense, however, we as taxpayers are paying for it. I filled mine out and mailed in back within a few days. They do the census every 10 years, why should this one be different?

          • libertytrain

            Claire, I loosely but correctly did my census and they called for more info than was on it they said because of the “kids” staying with me – like I have groups of them on a regular basis like foster care was the intonation; then there was knocking on my door cause there are two empty cabins on my land, I answered ‘they are two empty cabins’ – he seemed happy but called for more info on those two empty cabins last week or so. Today I walked up to the cabins – I had just been there two days ago – and each empty cabin had a new census sticker on it to please call them. I think not. I think I’ve done enough.

          • Claire

            libertytain- Yes, you have done enough. I was thinking in terms of the extra work involved and taxpayers having to pay for it. A woman I know in Nebraska is working for the census bureau. I am appalled at the money she earns. She makes darn good money!

    It’s too bad that LEGAL Mexican Americans are leaving Arizona too. However, my guess is that those who are, are simply protesting the law because of their ILLEGAL family members’ status.

As far as I know, he’s still here and his mother, who is also illegal has been working for 10 YEARS at the ROSS Store down the street from me. I’m in Florida, and NO-ONE cares here!

    Yeah!!!! Now that most of us seem to agree, don’t forget that it is your duty to see to it that it gets done in your state. If you all don’t take the time to write your local Sheriff, Mayor, Congerssman and Senator AND express your feelings and relate to them that you want your County, State and Country to do the same thing and if they don’t you will be sure and VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE, then you are a part of the Problem. It starts at HOME people. If your sheriff doesn’t enforce the law then its your fault. If your Mayor doesn’t stand behind him then it’s your fault. If your Congressman doesn’t stand up and Vote the laws you want enforced in your State then it’s your fault. Why you say. Because you have to put them in office and go to the town hall meetings and voice your opinion. You are ultimately in Control and you have to realize this and start VOTING! Vote the dirt bags out. Between the Congress and the Senate in the past two years they voted themselves another $10,ooo in pay raises. How much did any of you get?? My message to you is VOTE VOTE VOTE and let your voice be heard and COUNTED. Have a good day people.

    They will keep on going to the other 49 SACTUARY STATES. This is why you need to contact your state government senste and assembly(what we call state house members in N.J.)and pass legislation similar to Arizona’s law. If not your state will pay more money as the illegals run to the other 49 sanctuary states who are too politically correct to do anything to these leechees and lawbreakers. NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE MEDIA SPINS IT,NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY SUGAR COAT IT. SETTLE FOR NOTHING LESS THAN TOTAL DEPORTATION OF ALL ILLEGALS IN THIS COUNTRY.12 AMERICAN CITIZENS A DAY DIE AT THE HANDS OF AN ILLEGAL ALIEN. CHALLENGE THE ANCHOR BABIES WHO ARE ILLEGAL ALIENS ALSO.

    Many of you follow Glen Beck, thinking he is pretty straight on his opinions…although he sounds right, just as the organization that he holds his religious beliefs in, are a false cult…Just like Mohammed was a false prophet amongst muslims, so is Joseph Smith and Brigham Young false prophets of the religion of the Mormon Church…Anyone who believes, Independence Missouri is Jerusalem, Israel, women are to have children as many as possible here, and continue to have children on and on in heaven, and calling gentiles the elders of Israel, along with thousands of false statements contrary to the Old and New Testament is actually a real sicko…This goes for his friend Romney also…Please wake up, before it is to late…

      Ed, if you want to talk about apostate religion(s), contact Bob Livingston. ‘Report Shows Hispanics Leaving Arizona’ has NOTHING to do with religion.
      This article didn’t say one word about religion – apostate or otherwise. If I didn’t think I knew better, I’d say Motormouth Biden and Al ‘duh’ Gore were your favorite teachers.

  • huntman

    Great news! And funny as hell. The very same people who tried to subvert this law by fear mongering and misrepresenting it to the public (Holder. Obama and the rest of the Politburo) did Arizona the greatest favor of all. They told everybody that this is a draconian law and will lead to indiscriminant document checks and mass deportations and criminals believed them! Can we say there is a great lesson here?
    By the way, I do not believe that legal immigrants are leaving, unless they are in business of transporting illegals. That would make sense, you go where your customers are.

    • kate8

      The whole idea is to encourage illegals to self-deport! I really do hope that it is working.

  • John Coulthard

    Arizona’s so-called immigration law is not that at all. The citizens of Arizona wanted to put a stop to the hordes of criminals coming across the border that put their lives in danger. Since the Federal government would not enforce the law, Arizona passed a law to make illegal entry to the US a violation of Arizona law as well so that its law enforcement authorities could enforce federal law LEGALLY. This was not racist. However, Hispanic activists from around the country supported strongly by those in the US illegally, invaded our state accusing the citizens of Arizona of racism. They paraded in our streets dictating to the citizens of Arizona what laws they were allowed to pass and what they were not, for their own protection yet. This campaign was strictly against blocking a legally enacted law that would result in arresting Hispanic criminals, not criminals of other races, that is blatantly racist. No wonder it has now stirred up racial prejudice. Can anyone imagine hundreds of thousands of American citizens pouring into Mexico and parading in the streets against laws the Mexican government has enacted against drug cartels because the laws allow for the arrest of American criminals as well.

    In most parts of the world where law enforcement cracks down on criminals, the criminals flee to areas of lax enforcement. This tight law enforcement is not called racism except by Hispanic and political activists in the US. Perhaps these people should READ the US and Mexican Federal laws and the Arizona law and then ask themselves what their motivation is to pick on citizens of Arizona. It’s racism pure and simple. By the way these invading criminals kill more Hispanics and take more jobs away from legally resident Hispanics than any other race. That’s why many Hispanic friends of mine support the law.

    They have already brought bed bugs and who knows what else (swine flu). It is for all American citizens safety that people are checked before coming to other countries. Like a time bomb ticking who will be the modern day “thyphoid Mary Illegal alien” carrying a disease that is immune to antibiotics and all modern day medical treatments. It is not a racial issue it is a safety issue and against the law hence the adjective illegal

        • kate8

          vaksal, a friend of mine contracted TB. He was shocked.

          I no longer eat in restaurants nor do I buy commercial meats of any kind. Occasionally my daughter brings home a local chicken but, otherwise, we go vegetarian. And one has to be careful about that, too.

          • 45caliber

            We had a contract worker die here from TB on our work site. They hauled him to the hospital. It was days before they found out the problem. When they did, they tested all who had been exposed and found five people had contracted it. All these diseases are on the rise in the US when at one time they were almost gone.

            Interestingly enough, when the company wanted to issue a warning about TB and other sicknesses coming into the US, the government warned the company not to do so. It would violate the civil rights of the illegals since people might not want to hire them.

        • 45caliber

          My son works at Tyson’s in Arkansas. He said that they will pay a $1000 bonus to any illegal if they can rather than hire local. The main reason is power. If management wants them to work 7-12′s they have to. Americans can argue about it. He also said the American workers can always tell when the INS is going to visit that day – all the illegals stay home from work. Some time back the INS didn’t call ahead and tell Tyson’s. They caught a lot of them and fined Tysons. They argued in court that they shouldn’t be fined because the INS didn’t call them first as they had always done in the past.

          One of the other reasons they like illegals there is injuries. ALL more dangerous jobs are done by illegals such as cutting up the chicken with knives. If they cut themselves, they are taken to the hospital – and then Tyson calls the INS and reports an illegal worker. The INS then picks up the hospital cost and Tyson doesn’t have to worry about the insurance for them.

          • American Citizen

            Oh, rats, I just bought some Tyson chicken tenders today. That’s the last time. Thanks for the info. I do make sure they are brought to a high temperature for at least 20-30 minutes.

        • meteorlady

          I have been boycotting Tyson products for years because they hire illegals. We all need to do that or write them to change their policies and give American’s jobs.

  • Jack T

    If it is true, that’s the best news in a long time. That will take a huge burden off the taxpayers. If all the illegals left, maybe we could balance the budget.

    • Ellen

      City budgets will continue to be exhausted unless and until their criminal connections with ICLEI, the global warming agenda, the UN and Agenda 21 are rooted out, totally. As I understand it, this criminal organization is in a good 2/3 of our local governments at this point. They are ruining local economies. Perhaps this is the next step to take after these illegal parasites are forced to deal with their own countries’ problems by going back to their homelands.

  • mehoward

    Come on the rest of the 50 states adopt the Arizona law. Maybe this is the most simple way of steming the flow of illegals. The illegals
    can go back to whereever they have come from and march and demand their rights like they have done here. All we have ever asked is that they obey our laws and not sneak in over the border. mehpensacola,fl

    • Steve

      you know I am so sick of “diversity” it is pitting us all against each other…divide and conquer….what we need is “UNITY”….America live it, love it, or leave it….illegals can just leave it….

      • kate8

        Steve, you are so right. I can’t stand hearing politicians spout things like, “Our strength is our diversity”. Diversity is the opposite of integrity.

        Another one is, “We are a nation of immigrants”. Yes, but there comes a time when it is no longer good for the nation. And, we should be selective of who we welcome among us.

        Cultural diversity always brings a nation down. “Nation will rise against nation” refers to culture against culture.

        • 45caliber

          Actually I think diversity is the opposite of unity. And without unity we are finished as a country.

          And even the American Indian (I’m quarter Indian) is an immigrant. From Mongolia no less. So why keep saying we’re a nation of immigrants? That is self explainitory or should be.

          • kate8

            45, unity and integrity mean basically the same thing.

            People have always migrated around the globe. It’s just an issue of how long ago.

            We need to deal with the situation we have today. It wasn’t until LBJ was president that he opened the USA to the third-world. That was our death-blow.

          • American Citizen

            Actually, every country is a nation of immigrants that began it. That really is a stupid statement to those of us who were born here.

        • American Citizen

          I didn’t mean you, Kate, I meant the statement itself.

      • meteorlady

        That is probably the single most important thing about Communism and Marxism. Divide the masses and start a civil war. I’m sick of political correctness – it’s time we got back to common sense and started to educate our children about the history of this country so they are proud or it instead of trying to bring it down through socialism taught by their educators.

        • 45caliber

          But it isn’t PC to make our children proud of our country! Just because we took a bunch of losers from various countries and they made the country great is wrong to think that they (we) are better than those who didn’t come! All problems in the world are our fault and we should be sorry we did them and make amends by giving everyone else lots of money.

    This dear country of ours has been invaded by immigrants from the South, mostly Mexicans, but terrorists and criminals and others whose impact is destructive. Every red blooded American should be outraged that we have traitors in government who are actually aiding and abetting these foreigners in order to maintain their political offices and impose their evil will on the rest of us. If the Arizona law rights some wrongs and the foreigners leave, then every state should enact similar laws. Let’s put people in government who can lead in ways that stop the intruders, keep us safe, fix the economy, and restore our freedoms, because we have lost them under the present administration, and it’s only going to get worse if we don’t do more than we are doing.

    • 45caliber

      I don’t know about other areas but in Houston there are a number of gangs that specialize in burglary. They are almost all Mexican although some are Guatamalian too. They are violent when confronted and dangerous.

      The police state that about 90% of all burglaries are due to these people. They all have one thing in common. They keep all gold they find with the idea of going back home and retiring on it when they have enough.

    I dont want a stranger in my house or my country and have to support them to. I would like to see this law passed in Indiana and watch Elkhart and Goshen cleaned out of illegles

  • jomama

    ARIZONA – HERE I COME!!!!
    I live in Massachusetts where there SHOULD be a law (or enforcement thereof). Not only are we being invaded by Mexicans – there is a bazillion Brazilians. There’s alot of Muslims. There are many Guatemalans. Boston has alot of Asians (we also have a “Chinatown” there), Haitians (many of whom have taken jobs in the medical field, i.e. nursing homes & such) & Irish (bars & restaurants). All illegal.
    Is there ANY wonder why there is no jobs for anyone anymore???
    Illegal aliens will ALWAYS (even if they don’t know for sure) say that they “do the jobs that Americans refuse to do.”
    Think about this:
    IF the illegal aliens get amnesty (AND I HOPE NOT!!!) – what makes you think that they won’t want YOUR job after that?? Because THEN they will be legal & able to apply for whatever job they want – LEGALLY.
    AND if they DON’T get the job – who says they won’t SCREAM discrimination?? Everyone is so politically correct now (not me).
    Yes, the lawyers will be doing fine because of the ‘amnesty’. But so will the ‘new citizens’ of the United States because they will sue to get what they think is supposed to be coming to them (i.e. money from the lawsuits from discrimination claims).
    Then all the real citizens of the United States will be cleaning THEIR houses, lawns & toilets.
    THAT’S JUST NOT RIGHT!!
    DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY!!
    DON’T BE POLITICALLY CORRECT!!
    DON’T LET THEM PUSH US AROUND!!
    THIS IS AMERICA!! IT’S OURS!! NOT THEIRS!!
    THIS IS THE UNITED STATES!!
    NOT THE DIVIDED STATES!!! JAN BREWER FOR PRESIDENT!!!

    • Ellen

      I wish you the best in Massachusetts. I am originally from there but would never go back. It is so liberal and anti-Constitution that it is sickening. Wonder what they’ll do if those who are leaving Arizona travel to Massachusetts?

  • Eliza S

    It’s not only the illegals coming over the southern border but also Eastern European, Asia and the middle east, especially the muslims who have the highest birth rate (like rabbits)in the world. When they get here, reproduction is unlimited. Each male can have 4 wives at the same time. Each woman has between 3 – 10 children each and they get free education and anything else they can get. They also don’t obey any of our laws. To them our laws are jokes. In less than 25 – 30 years the Muslims will dominate all America as they are doing in Europe. Even in their schools the children are taught that the Koron says all muslims must kill all who are not muslim. Saudi Arabia spends billions of dollars in “donations” to the party they want to win. Bush/Chaney for example, pappa Bush and his partner all received billions in donations.

    I think it would be best to stop all “donations” to any and all parties from all and any foreign source.

    I also think it is high time that America throws away that rule (which some states still use even though it is no longer needed) “Winner take all”, like Florida. That way it would be honest and fair, not like it is today.

    Another important issue is: all American people must speak, read and write English fluently in order to vote, hold a job, go to college and/or university. No more Democrates and Republicans telling people how to vote (when they can’t read or know who the candidates are.

    One more very important point. Since congress has been abused by the current group of people: No member of congress (Senate and House of representatives)can be in office more than 2 straight times in a row.

    I think it is also important to put Americans back to work. Most of our businesses have moved their bases to Asia, Africa, India to produce cheap goods for sale in America. Most shoes, clothing, purses, etc., almost all manufactured goods are produced in these places because labor and matericals are cheap.

    Let’s stop all corruption once and for all and take back America for Americans.

        They would fit right in at Washington. I went there for a visit some years ago. The hotel clerk told me to only use taxis because 1 of every 9 people there were on parole. That didn’t count the ones not yet caught or those who had finished parole either. It seemed half the people there would stand on sidewalks with nothing to do nor anywhere to go.

        We already send some of our biggest criminals there. They belong to a select group called Congress.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Gee I wonder what remark Reid would make then????

  • Dale

    I agree with Dr Mike. I live in Washington State and nearly every day we have drive-by shootings, killings, and other gang activity that didn’t exist 15-years ago. And yes,the gangs in this area are all Mexicans.

    The Mexicans get free health care, free day care, subsidized housing, brand new free housing built just for them, food stamps, subsidized utilities, free education for the kids, and free food commodities. Some of these, like day care are only available to Mexicans, and if you ask them for documentation you are breaking the law making you a criminal.

    FREE? No I pay for it.

    Part of being an American is to assimilate into society as a productive member of society. So why I ask do the Mexicans come here and want to bring their “culture” with them? I know lots of successful American families of Mexican decent but I don’t hear them wanting to remember their “culture”.

    Every race of people have some semblance of a sordid past. Most folks that come to American legally want to become Americans and forget about the past.

    Why don’t Mexicans want to forget that they are descendants of Indian women raped by the Conquistadors. Why are they so proud of this heritage that they want to bring it and live it here instead of becoming an American?

    Thanks to NObama the president of Mexico told congress that we should open or doors to the illegals while at the same time he has tariffs on US products. It’s easy to see why Mexico is wanting to and is happy to relieve themselves of their criminals by giving them to us.

    What part of illegal doesn’t NObama’s government understand? If you do something illegal you go to jail. Why don’t the same laws apply to illegal Mexicans? Send them to the Mariposa County Jail first then deport them. They won’t ever want to come back.
    ARIZONA IS RIGHT! EVERY OTHER STATE SHOULD DO THE SAME and if NObama doesn’t like it he can go back to Kenya where they say he was born.

    The rumblings from the “Birthers” are growing louder. Obama is Illegal? It should be settled before years end. Obama steps on his weenie weekly, and his lastest “speech ” is nothing but a commercial for “Crap and Tax”.
    Obama won’t shut the Borders, as he and the Dems want the Hispanic votes. And now a single State, with strong Leadership,has shown the Nation what a real “LEADER” can do, to stop the money sucking Illegals from brankrupting America.
    Now a move has started to label “Anchor Babies” also as Illegals, as Illegals come into the US to specfically have children here, under the antiquated Constitutional Law that IS NOT being used correctly, so that the Illegal parents are protected by their children being born here.
    Will all this negative Obama info lead to more people voting in Nov? To finally cripple the worst administration in American history, and prevent any more horrible over spending bills from being passed?
    I hope so, but Americans are known to be lazy, and wait untill they have to fight. Would be so much easier to use the ballot.

    I feel all ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS should go back to mexico. They need to follow the laws and come here the right way. People from other countries follow the laws and rules to become citizens.
    The Mexicans haven taken over southern California,Arizonia, and Texas and our students are not getting a good education because of the mexicans who can not speak english. This is america and english is our language, and they should speak it. Do you think that Mexico would do the same for americans?? Give them all the hand outs that they get here?? No Way.

    I back Gov. Brewer all the way. She should be in Washington TRYING to get THEIR job done. I wanted to show support for her and Arizona by buying an Arizona flag to fly at my home in Virginia. I have had an open account with AMAZON for years and found a flag that would suit very well. BUT, guess what I also found…..a sticker with the star of the flag replaced with a NAZI SWASTIKA!!!This was a ‘Boycott Arizona’sticker. Now, for those of you that did not grow up during the 40s and 50s, that is the most evil thing that has ever been produced. Germany does not allow for it to be displayed and there are people here using it to make money?? This, friend, is not free speech but hate speech and to have AMAZON encouraging people to buy such evil is a disgrace. Knowing, I will not deal with them until it is removed and they apologize for their actions….you KNOW that will happen.

  • gary

    I think governer Brewer did what she needed to do to protect her state. I hope that all the other states will follow suit. There is another item that should be added to the law, and that is at least a $10,000 fine for being here illegally. If you do not have the cash then you go to jail and work it off at $10.00/day. NOw if all the states did this, there would be a mass exodus of people leaving the US. Those that would try to come this way through Mexico would be trampled by the hoard that was leaving. End of story. Kind of like a self cleaning oven.

Arizona state representative, John Kavanagh, stated that Arizona will go a step further with legislation in January, 2011, that will not confer U.S. citizenship on babies born in the U.S. from illegals. At least one parent must be legal. Mr. Kavanagh said that they are still researching, crossing the t’s, dotting the i’s, best wording, etc., but the legislation will happen. There is widespread support in Arizona for this legislation. 2011 should be a fun year. Stay tuned. Go Arizona!!

    Here is what gets me about the “Undocumtented persons” thing. If I am pulled over for a brokent tailight. The officer has every right to see my drivers lisc, or other ID. In MO we have to show that we have the right to be here before they will issue a drivers lisc. So where do these “people” get off wanting a free ride? They don’t want to become citizens, they only seem to want all the free stuff.
    BTW, MO has had a simlar law on the books for years.
    CA gets what they deserve. SF is an “OPEN” city. I lived there for about 25 years. And now I’m in MO. Ya know, when you go to the fast food joint, you can understand the guy on the speaker. Hmmmm

    • 45caliber

      You are right. Most of them don’t want to be US citizens. They want to make enough ($100,000) and go back “home” to retire and live the good life. And one of the best ways to do that is draw welfare while they are working so they can save every penny they earn working. The other “freebies” are nice too.

  • Tommy

    I take my hat off to all of you who have posted a comment on here, all Illegal aliens should have there asses kicked out of our country! End of story. Take the Republicans and Democrats with you!!!! Most all of Congress are Scum Bags, career Politicians who care about money and power. So again, I take my hat off to you great Americans who are speaking the truth, and to Arizona for there leadership! GOD bless you all.

    Guess the native Indians shoulda sent those illegals’ a*@es packing. That would’ve solved the problem and this wouldn’t even be an issue today. Sucks when the shoe is on the other foot, doesn’t it??

  • http://gmail i41

    Missouri, has a law come up or it is on the books, just like AZ., and also is requiring only English be used in schools and on ballets. If th states keep growing some back bones and tell the fed to go suck a rope, I say go for it. Now if we can just target all illegals and they take a couple of muslim freaks with them, we will get rid of three more anti Americans. But since a democrats have their heads up an illegal’s and muslim’s posterior, there will be six less EU government styled idoits around. The USA might just get back to a little more normalicy.

  • Clifton L. West

    I wonder what would happen if the American people demand that anyone who runs for any political office anywhere must have an I.Q. examination that will be made public immediatly afterwards. If all those holding office right now were given this examination, we could determine just how many idiots we have telling us what to do. If this new law sends many Mexicans packing, then, the taxpayers of Arizona might receive a much needed break, particularly regarding the educational process. Contrary to popular belief, flooding a state with illegals does not increase the coffers of the state from the federal government, who, by the way, receives its operating funds from all of us, but places a direct burden on that state. It is the same thing as having to support ten more people in your home that you can’t claim as dependents on your income tax report annually, and, our current Administration is telling you to just work harder and make more money to support these individuals, who, in turn, will vote to keep the Administration in power when illegals are allowed to vote.

    • Allan

      I prefer a person of moderate intelligence and strong character to a person with an arbitrary I.Q. and poor character. I.Q. and character don’t go hand in hand. The jobs in Washington have so many opportunities for corruption that it is unrealistic to think reform candidates won’t be corrupted. Many have been over many years. What has to happen is to change the incentives, rules, and perks of Congress. People will modify their behavior if the incentive is correct.

      • 45caliber

        Neither does IQ and common sense. And it seems very few Congressmen have both. The same is true of many “intellects” who basically run our colleges.

Also, you need to research your answers a little better. An illegal would not be able to serve as they are guilty of a federal crime!

      There are many LEGAL people of Spanish descent in the US as American citizens. I have no problem with them and work with many of them. They are good friends. They, like me, do not like the illegals coming here and causing problems. You seem to believe we are all against LEGAL people here. In fact, in Texas, we have people of families of Spanish descent who had ancestors who fought for Texas Independence and died at the Alamo. Does everyone look down on them for their ancestory? Not hardly!

      It is the illegal people here we don’t want. Do you have a problem with that?

      I’ve seen that already and it makes me mad. When I was a boy in the Ozark Mountains, if this had been tried, we’d have been out the next day with rifles, clearing the area of anyone we found. (Well, we might not have run them off but you can bet they wouldn’t have gone any further!) Now they just give them the areas so the Border Patrol has a larger border to patrol and make it easier for them to get into our country. Through a national park, no less!

    I am an American of Mexican descent and I have grown up in Phoenix, AZ and in 54 years I have never been made to feel ashamed of my skin color or afraid of the police because of it. Many of our police officers are Hispanic! I am sick to death of watching the pro illegal alien/open borders people use skin color to duck our laws! Illegal immigation IS ILLEGAL! It has nothing to do with skin color because illegals come from all over the world. We want them ALL to leave or be deported. We are tired of our loved ones being hurt or killed by people who never should have been here and have no right to be here. I am so proud to be an Arizonan and support Sheriff Joe, Russell Pearce, Andrew Thomas, Bill Mongomery (running for Andrew Thomas’ old position) and our courageous Governor Brewer for having the strength and conviction to stand up for our people, our state and our country. Please Arizona, keep these good people in office so that we can keep winning our fight! (If you don’t know who these people are or why you should vote for them please ask me.)

  • M.L.

    Heads up people, if you were angry before try this one in for size. I just heard on the Fox News channel that in Port Chester N.Y. with a high population of hispanics, legal and mostly illegal have been given the rfight to vote 6 times per person to get more latinoes in gov. this was backed-up by the federal gov. and one has already gained a position. Also what is happening to the people in Arizona have had their cars splattered with paint because of their license plates. It’s also happening as they travel, so some have chosen to keep the state name off the plates. They get away with whatever they want. Dear God when will it end?

    • 45caliber

      I heard about it too. They even interviewed one of the Mexicans. He said he’d always been brought up to think one man, one vote but he’d vote the six times since they gave it to him. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!

  • jr bob

    hispanics are not all illegal but those hispanics who are here legally should be reporting the known illegal alliens as should legal immigrants from other countries do likewise. when there is a illegal class of people breaking the law it needs to be reported. would you not report a person who was breaking into your neighbors house? safety and freedom depend on honest citizens, so if you know of someone who is illegal report him for your safety and the nations safety. I welcome legal immigrants. My father was an immigrant from Luxemburgh, and my mother from Poland and both had papers to come here. they did the right thing. they paid their passage on a ship and entered through Ellis Island as it should be. I wanted to learn german and polish but my parents said you are an american and you will speak english as I do. I know no forgin language. we should all be americans first and formost.

  • http://YellowDogsandDemocratHandouts. Lester Havens

    That illegal Hispanics are leaving Arizona in droves is good news. And it doesn’t matter where they go to because most of the surrounding states are going to pass laws similar to Arizona’s. Even California, where so many of the protesters of the Arizona laws came from, has the same exact immigration law. Check with California Penal Code Section 834b. If it were enforced, most of the illegal Hispanics would leave California too.

          Also, I know people in Montana who ran a heating and sheet metal business for many years. Illegals also took over the construction jobs, including the heating and sheet metal.

          So many of our own countrymen have been put out of business because of illegals.

  • 45caliber

    I hope Texas passes the same law soon. Maybe we could encourage the illegals to go back where they came from.

  • http://thewebpages101.com Edris

    Arizona’s proposed anchor baby law may actually pass the Constitutionality test. The Constitution states anyone born in the US is a citizen BUT the person must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. One could argue that illegals are outside of this jurisdiction.

  • meteorlady

    Now if Texas could do the same thing maybe the rest would follow. If AZ is successful and gets them out, then maybe my state will follow. I’m sick of seeing them working all around here and then seeing them at the local grocery stores paying with food stamps.

    I have challenged every single one of my neighbors that hire a Mexican to ask for ID. If they don’t have it, it doesn’t matte what they will work for, they are criminals and are taking from citizens to be here.

    • 45caliber

      About twenty years ago the Corpus Christi Caller had an article about the illegals. They said that the illegals, as they came into the US, would buy TWO sets of ID papers. They would work under one set and draw welfare under the other set. Every six months they would change so at the end of the year they could send in two IRS statements showing they had been on welfare for six months. They get all their income tax back and usually get Earned Income Credit on top of that.

      They weren’t really interested in becoming American citizens as the government tries to insist so often. They simply want to make a $100,000, put it into a border bank on the American side so they can do business there when they wish, and go back home to retire. On the interest from the money they can hire a maid/cook and a gardener and live the live of a rich man. Further, the more their own currency inflates, the more they have in the American bank.

      When they last received an amnesty, there were 3 million who came forward and got their work cards. When the cards ran out a year later, only 35,000 renewed them. The rest of them didn’t care.

      The government was upset and told them to not print such stories. Not because it wasn’t true but because it might anger a lot of American people. So the paper printed that story too.

  • Danny Terry

    I live in California. I support the Arizonian Law 105%. We have too many illegal’s in Calif. The time has come to save our self’s or just bend over and give the state back to Mexico.. I have lived in Ventura California for 60 years but in the last 10 year the illegal’s have just about taken over everything. You can’t go to the beach, a park, a swap meet or even get a job because the illegal’s have already took them over. You can’t even take your kids to the base ball park because 500 illegal’s are playing soccer..I say it’s time to take the USA back. IS IT APPLE PIE AND BASE BALL OR TORTES AND SOCCER..STOP TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO AND JUST DO IT.. WE ALL KNOW WHO WE NEED TO ELECTED AND IF WE ALL STAND UP AND BE HEARD WE CAN STILL TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK..I say” put the army on the border because the border patrol can’t seem to get the job done..Have the police arrest the illegal’s and slow down on dumb stuff like seat belt laws and other meaningless stuff.. It’s time to earn their pay.. I love California but please no more illegal’s…and another thing that so-called president Obama is there for one reason and that is the illegal’s and their offspring put that dumb ass there.

    • meteorlady

      Please know that the Border Patrol is doing the very best job that they can. There are not enough of them and when Bush tried to build up the Border Patrol and Customs he was stopped by the Democrats. Seems they didn’t think our border security was as important as spending money bailing out banks, wall Street, AIG, etc. In fact Obama wanted to decreased the number of Border Patrol agents and cut their budget but was stopped for now.

      My friend, who is an ex-LA cop, said that if the Mexicans wanted to take over they could because the far outnumber the law enforcement people. There are place that law enforcement does not go because it’s just too dangerous. Some government – protect the criminals to the detriment of the citizens. You also have churches and sanctuary cities – you need to boycott the churches and the cities that do that.

        the news reported sometime back: california is dominated by the minority population. i don’t think its possible to remove the illegal faction. the liberals have won they own california.
        the schools are preaching anarchy and no one lifts a finger to stop it.
        we pass legislation to stop the madness and some liberal judge overturns the law. i don’t like to get involved with conspiracy theories, but it sure looks like we have been sold down the river. california is bankrupt mainly because of the welfare drain and the same people we are supporting thru welfare are given the right to vote, guess who they vote for, the same politicians that are feeding them the welfare and insuring their right to vote. (remember the motor voter registration bill, the first bill clinton signed when he took office)
        i’m really afraid we have lost the country and the only way out is either capitulate or fight. we can’t win in court the liberals have stacked the deck, they own the judicial system and the only thing we have left is the supreme court and that’s changing fast.
        everyone should go back and study the mccarthy hearings, he tried to warn us, however, they owned the media even then and you can understand what mccarthy went thru.

    I have mixed feelings about this as someone from Arizona. Granted, I’ll really enjoy less people driving down the highway at 55 mph because they think the speed limit signs are still in kilometers, and watching Mexicans steal someone’s bike right in front of me in the middle of the day hopefully won’t happen as much, but this bit of news actually saddens me on some level. I don’t think the law encourages people to leave so much as it encourages people to not be criminals. I’m commonly mistaken for Mexican, but I’m not afraid of the law because I know I’m peaceful and don’t steal, drive recklessly, or hurt people. I’ve read the bill, I’ve read the proposed amendment, and I see nothing frightening or abusive. Although I carried around my voter ID card before the bill was passed, I don’t even feel I need it as proof of citizenship. Having been personally, seriously wronged by illegal immigrants twice now, I’m glad justice will be granted to criminal who deserve it. I just wish the nice, hardworking Mexicans would stay and not be afraid of the law being administered to the mean, stupid, lazy Mexicans.

      Only when the repressed are in the right. And they aren’t here. You should rethink what an intellect is supposed to do. The fact that you seem to have gotten it wrong means you don’t belong in that group.

  • chuck b

    i think we should demand that all emigration be stopped, our country is over populated. if you have seen some of the space photography showing the continental u.s. at night, then tell me we need more emigrants.
    we live in a basically small town in california and its starting to look like los angeles, it won’t be long before people will be standing in line to die.

    if you are un-decided, then take a trip to los angeles. or anywhere in southern calif.

    • Shasta

      i believe its like that everywhere Chuck…..i see it here in Ohio even, you can barely get on a highway anymore, ENUFF IS ENUFF…..stop the invasions, and let us do for ourselves, we have NO MORE ROOM, JOBS OR $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    • Jeff M.

      Chuck B., I think that you mean to say that you think that all immigration should be stopped and that you think that there have been too many immigrants. I’m not sure if all immigration should be stopped, but I wouldn’t mind if this country had less less immigration. A lot of this country does seem much more crowded than it did about ten or fifteen years ago. I don’t mean to pick on any one group of people. If I have an emergency, I don’t want to wait in line for six months because many people are ahead of me, no matter who the people are.

  • ABinGA

    atlas shrugged- They may be oppressed in the country they come from but over here they are illegals. They need to go back where they came from and fight for their rights there. Think again!

    Exercise extreme caution you Tea Partier’s. MSNBC is now comparing the Tea Party movement to extreme right wing fanatics like Joe McCarthy, Barry Goldwater, Father Flanagan, and the like. All you militia members will need to change your unders. They’re on to you.

    Long but GOOD!!!
    I don’t know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I
    think Hispanic people in this country, legally or illegally,
    made a huge public relations mistake with their recent demonstrations.

    I don’t blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the
    United States of America , as it is a truly wonderful place.

    But when the first thing you do when you set foot on American soil is illegal it is flat out wrong and I don’t care how many lala land left heads come out of the woodwork and start trying
    to give me sensitivity lessons.

    I don’t need sensitivity lessons, in fact I don’t have any-thing against Mexicans! I just have something against criminals and anybody who comes into this country illegally is a criminal
    and if you don’t believe it try coming into America from a foreign country without a passport and see how far you get. What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it’s tanta-mount to saying, “I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

    It’s an “in your face” action and speaking just for me, I don’t like it one little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in Washington bigger than English peas it wouldn’t be happening.

    Where are you, you bunch of lily livered, pantywaist, forked tongued, sorry excuses for defenders of The Constitution? Have you been drinking the water out of the Potomac again?
    And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork laden and watered down that it won’t mean anything anyway Besides, what good is another law going to do when you
    won’t enforce the ones on the books now?

    And what ever happened to the polls, guys? I thought you folks were the quintessential finger wetters. Well you sure ain’t paying any attention to the polls this time because somewhere around eighty percent of Americans want some thing done about this mess, and mess it is and getting bigger everyday.

    This is no longer a problem, it is a dilemma and headed for being a tragedy. Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the Muslims can’t happen here when the businesses who hire these people finally run out of jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take to the streets?

    If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the kind of country your children and grand-children will inherit. But I guess that doesn’t matter as long as you get re-elected. Shame on you. One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve to say anything derogatory about any group of people (except Christians) you are going to be screamed at by the media and called a racist, a bigot and anything else they can think of to call you

    Well I’ve been pounded by the media before and I’m still rockin’ and rollin’ and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not.
    And the truth is that the gutless, gonadless, milksop politicians are just about to sell out the United States of America because they don’t have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to face reality.

    And reality is that we would never allow any other group of people to have 12 million illegal in this country and turn around and say, “Oh it’s ok, ya’ll can stay here if you’ll just allow us to slap your wrist.”

    And I know that some of you who read this column are saying “Well what’s wrong with that?” I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it. These people could be from Mars as far as we know. We don’t know who they are, where they are or what they’re up to and the way the Congress is going we’re not going to.

    Does this make sense? Labor force you say? We already subsidize corporate agriculture as it is, must we subsidize their labor as well? If these people were from Haiti would we be so fast to turn a blind eye to them or if they were from Somalia or Afghanistan ? I think not.

    All the media shows us are pictures of hard working Hispanics who have crossed the border just to try to better their life.
    They don’t show you pictures of the Feds rounding up members of MS 13, the violent gang who came across the same way the decent folks did. They don’t tell you about the living conditions of the Mexican illegal some fat cat hired to pick his crop.

    I want to make two predictions.

    No. 1: This situation is going to grow and fester until it erupts in violence on our streets while the wimps in Washington drag their toes in the dirt and try to figure how many tons of political hay they can make to the acre.

    No 2: Somebody is going to cross that border with some kind of weapon of mass destruction and set it off in a major American city after which there will be a backlash such as this country has never experienced and the Capitol building in Washington will probably tilt as Congressmen and Senators rush to the other side of the issue.

    I don’t know about you but I would love to see just one major politician stand up and say, “I don’t care who I make mad and I don’t care how many votes I lose, this is a desperate situation and I’m going to lead the fight to get it straightened out.”
    I don’t blame anybody for wanting to come to America , but if you don’t respect our immigration laws why should you respect any others? And by the way, this is America and our flag has stars and stripes Please get that other one out of my face.

    God Bless America

    Charlie Daniels

    MY COUNTRY
    IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY,
    SPEAK UP!
    I am not against immigration -
    just come through like everyone else
    Get a sponsor;
    have a place to lay your head;
    have a job;
    pay your taxes;
    live by the rules;
    and
    LEARN THE LANGUAGE
    as all other immigrants have in the past
    and
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    PART OF THE PROBLEM

    Think about this:
    If you don’t want to forward this
    for fear of offending someone,
    YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

    Will we still be the Country of choice
    and still be America if we continue
    to make the changes forced on us by
    people from other countries who came
    to live in America because it is the
    Country of Choice?

    Think about it!

    All we have to say is, when will
    Someone do something about
    MY RIGHTS?
    We’ve gone so far the other way,
    bent over backwards to not
    offend anyone, that I am now
    being offended.
    But it seems no one has a problem
    with that.

    “In God We Trust”
    is our national motto. This is not
    some Christian, right wing, political slogan.
    We adopted this motto because Christian men
    and women – on Christian principles – founded
    this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls
    of our schools.
    It is Time for America to Speak up
    If you agree – pass this along;
    if you don’t agree – delete it!

    • Gramma from Canada

      AMEN AND AMEN!! and that goes for CANADA as well….

    • 45caliber

      The politicians in Washington KNOW that 80% of the voters are against illegal immigration. But typical of them, they simply hunker down and wait with the idea that sooner or later another crisis will come along to take our minds off this problem, allowing them to do as they like.

      The real problem is that we are seeing so many crisis right now that we don’t like any of them. Still, they are doing what they have learned in the past – hunker down and wait.

      I just hope they wait until November and see what happens.

      • Jeff M.

        You may be right, 45caliber about the overall national opposition toward illegal immigration. Unfortunately, in California, for at least the past few years there have usually been more Democrat and other left-wing voters than Republican voters (who are practically the only conservative or moderate voters in this state.) Also, both of the major candidates for governor, Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman, apparently do not want to check for identification of suspected illegal immigrants. It would be great if there were a measure or proposition on the ballot so that people could vote if they wanted the border very well protected or not. However, I don’t see that happening in the near future in this state. Most of the people in California that I have had the guts to talk to about this highly charged controversial issue either have seemed sympathetic toward the illegal immigrants or have ignored me. It’s an uphill battle all the way in this state. I hope that the people are more cooperative in your state than they are in California about wanting to check for identification of suspected illegal immigrants. Good luck!

    amen amen amen let the sunshine in. we need it so badly that i pray to the lord to save us form the idiots in washington. to our founding fathers I appoligize for the traitors in political offices that have no respect for what you gave us. those politicians are not worthy of the trust you left us, but i hope we will be able we wiil be able this november to start to rectify it and in 2012.

  • gary

    Do not pay attention the the wetbacks. They are just looking for simpathy and amnesty which they will get. Remember your government does not care about you, only your tax money that empowers them. We are their enablers.

    We need to draft every politician and send them overseas, and bring our troops home. Let the scumb fight the wars!

  • Cliff

    I think we as a country have had enough. President Obama campaigned with the promise of change, but one man can’t change everything. Congress shares a bunch of the blame and we’re starting to see the country turn the wheels in a new direction by voting out the incumbents and now we’re seeing history made yet again with the passing of this law. Finally a state stood up, grabbed its b*lls and said enough is enough, just like the rest of the country with the career politicians who are only in DC for the pay and benefits and NOT for the best interest of the country. If they [career politicians] were, that oil spill would have been plugged a month ago, cleanup would be underway right now, BP would be footing the bill.

    Just sayin’.

    • Claire

      Cliff– I agree with you 100%.

  • James

    If all 50 states enacted similar laws, would illegal aliens leave the United States?

    • 45caliber

      If you put enough penalties into the program to make it hard on them, yes. Such as fining or even imprisoning someone who hires them.

      We had a criminal case not long ago in Houston. It is still waiting for court time. An illegal was caught working for some American. He was sent back to Mexico. The American helped him get back to Texas. He was pulled over by a cop in Houston for some minor traffic problem. When the cop walked up to the window, the illegal shot and killed him. The illegal is charged with capitol murder; the American is also charged with it. Right now the left is getting very upset. They say it isn’t fair to the American.

      • Claire

        45caliber–I bet Illinois would never pass the same law as Arizona. The Illinois politicians need the illegals. Sickening.

  • winperk

    All any state has to do to enable Illegal Alien Invaders to leave
    their state is to make a legal statement that they will enforce FEDERAL LAW. Federal law has all the elements to stop and request identification and ask if they illegals. Tjis can be done by law enforcement for anyone at anytime without any other legal considerations.

  • Gramma from Canada

    I would say the ‘mission’ is almost accomplished. I would say that these people that are ‘choosing’ to leave are trying to make a statement…SO LET THEM! If they choose to leave, then leave. Obviously they don’t care to abide by the ‘laws of the land’….Open the gate and let them flee.

    I and others in Canada stand behind the Arizona Governor 100%. I pray that the Lord would give her strength to stand against ALL who are in oppositiion to this Bill. It takes a lot of courage to stand for something that is right when most say it is wrong.

    God Bless Arizona and the ‘law biding’ people who live there.

    • 45caliber

      Thanks for your comment and support. Are you getting many of these illegals up in Canada too?

      • Gramma from Canada

        I would imagine we do, but we don’t hear of it so much…Our media here is too busy ‘standing up for’ the ‘sodomites’…as you know, we have many……It is a very sad state that our countries are in…..I am a Christian, so none of this surprises me because I know that things are going to get a lot worse, A LOT WORSE….It just shows me that Jesus is coming for HIS CHURCH very very soon…..
        God help both our people of our countries

  • Jack Richmond

    Arizona has long been a front runner in smart laws. When home invasions were sky-high, one Arizona district passed a law requiring guns in every home. Crime plummeted, but increased in neighboring counties and states. The criminals went where the laws were on their side. Now those who broke the law by coming into the country illegally and don’t have papers are moving to neighboring states where the laws allow them in. I’m with Arizona on this one. If all states adopted such legal solutions, the only place to go where the laws would allow them to be criminals would be Mexico.

  • Brittanicus

    STOP THE IRATE COMMENTARY AND DO SOMETHING

    THROW OUT ALL PRO-ILLEGAL ALIEN POLITICIANS?

    If you want to stop 20 to 30 illegal immigrant invasion, it’s overpopulation potential and reduce the amount of money stolen from your pay check to pay for their welfare, education, health treatment join the growing numbers of NUMBERSUSA. There are billions of dollars going overseas, across the border from those illegally working here–there feeding off us like parasites. Over a million people now realize we must unite to stop this epidemic–JOIN NUMBERSUSA–as a silent activist and remain anonymous, where radical open border zealots cannot torment you with racist slurs.

    Many Americans and legal residents stay in the shadows because of the chance of being verbally or even physically attacked. Have a voice in this travesty of our immigration laws. Learn the poor immigration grades of pro-amnesty politicians and eject them from office. Numbersusa is building an army of anti-illegal immigration advocates and we need your vote, to stop this violations of our freedoms, our right. ONE FLAG, ONE LANGUAGE, AND THE US CONSTITUTION. Fight for the Arizona policing law and mandate similar for every state in our Union. Ask why only 1200 troops on our border to defend innocent Americans in fighting the drug cartels and other criminals, but will send 17000 national guard for oil cleanup? Ask why only a single border fence and uncompleted. Ask why not the two as planned, complete with razor wire. Fight back against the Instant Citizenship “Anchor Baby” law which has been misinterpreted, from the 19th Century slave emancipation post Civil War law. If they keep to the 14th Amendment as it is, then the child remains a citizen–but the Mother isn’t (nor the Father) One parent–MUST–be a citizen?. If not–They must be deported.

    Proper leadership would enforce laws and treat illegals for what they
    are: INVADERS of our country. No need to pussyfoot around. We have a right to know who is legally in this country. 9-11 was the result of inattention and slack governing. With proper leadership, America will be ret’d to common sense immigration of old with those wishing to enter America learned English before entering, felt happy and blessed to be here and America was proud to welcome them. Those immigrants did not come to overpower America, to steal its assets, but to contribute to it and thus, enriched America with their presence, which was lawful organized, and well managed. Those immigrants were happy to assimilate with our culture. They left their failed country behind and embraced the new one. America does not invite foreigners to come change our government. Immigrants must adapt or should not relocate. They leave undesirable aspects behind. If you did not find it undesirable, why come to America? Immigrants should not expect to establish their old country in America. Relocating is only successful if one assimilates.
    Dial No.2 indeed. More special language teachers than regular ones? All gov documents in English. This is America. High Time to recognize and respect this country.

  • Jeff M.

    It’s all right with me if foreigners speak their native tongues occasionally in private, as long as they don’t force their languages on everyone else and as long as American taxpayers don’t have to spend millions or billions of dollars each year translating non-emergency information into their own languages. However, when they take away jobs, welfare benefits, disability benefits, medical benefits, and social and educational benefits which could have gone to American citizens and legal immigrants, then I feel that these particular foreigners (who are illegal immigrants) are going too far. Conservative people may think that I am being too liberal, and liberal people may think I am being too conservative, but I feel most at ease by trying to be moderate and trying to reach a happy medium. A lot of our country seemed to share my views about fifteen or twenty years ago but unfortunately a lot of this country seems to be getting polarized these days. At any rate, I am grateful to the Almighty that I can sometimes speak my mind without worrying too much about risking being thrown in jail, as in some countries that are extremely left-wing or right-wing. Also, even though I am not as conservative as Gramma, I am impressed that Gramma has spoken up so much when very often Canadians have gotten into trouble for not being very “politically correct”. Therefore, I think that Gramma is a very remarkable inspiration for free speech.

    I’m envious of the American citizens in Arizona. Just think. No American taxpayers being forced to pay for their free education, health care, housing, utilities, food stamps, etc. Less identity fraud. Fewer vehicular manslaughter incidents. Departure of drug cartels. America as it should be. Utah, get on board!

    Oh, that’s right, obama’s guy eric holder is suing individual American citizens for upholding federal law.
