    Former New Jersey Judge and FOX News analyst Andrew Napolitano voiced his opposition to Arizona's new law SB 1070 last week, stating that the governor of Arizona "is gonna bankrupt the Republican party and the state of Arizona..." He added that the law is "so unconstitutional I predict a federal judge will prevent Arizona from enforcing it as soon as they attempt to do so."

    It doesn't appear to be a bill to address the issue currently being debated. It instead appears to be a cynical attempt to glom on to the border security debate but only addresses resident documented aliens rather than illegal undocumented aliens.

    Maybe it's an attempt to pave the way to citizenship for both?

    It might be, but as written in that article the bill only seems to address legal residents path to "State Citizenship".

    Since that's all they can address are state issues, it seems plausible that's where it begins.

    Based on the push back Arizona got for stepping into the Federal responsibility area, any direct mitigation or involvement by the states, without Federal approval, will be struck.

    If 3 states the size of California, Texas and New York all do something similar, I doubt it will be easy to dismiss, especially for politicians. The pressure will be on.

    It's comedy to me. These dems are so unrealistic, oh and illinois has way more people than Texas. Illinois is one of the major destinations for illegals.

    This is different. Obama hates Arizona but loves New York.

    Illinois has way more people than Texas? I thought Texas had a larger population of people (26 million vs 13 million) and illegals at around 7%?
