    AZ Republic newspaper has been very pro "illegal" for many years. It is not surprising they spin things the way they do.

    The bill does have provisions to make it illegal to hire an illegal. So the employer side is also addressed.

    Re: Ariz. governor signs immigration enforcement bill

    Here are some links providing information on the costs of illegals in America

    Right Condition: How much money do illegal immigrants cost America?

    This is a huge factor in the attitudes of Arizonans. Read the above and you will see the financial drain placed on our state. Right now there is a 1% sales tax on the ballot here to raise money for schools, in my daughters school, they are about 35% Mexican. I was talking to the principal this afternoon and she says that a lot of the kids are scared of what is going to happen to thier parents, you can draw your own conclusions on what % are illegals
    Why does the state of AZ have to have the 3rd highest sales tax rate in the country? To pay for the education of illegals who don't contribute their share of the tax base but use the services.

    Good for Arizona.

    Here's my link about the first bull**** factoid you offer, one spread by state senator Russell Pearce, the author of this notorious immigration bill and a serial false factoid artificer.
    I just noticed that your source is the New Times, Laughable journalism at best. Argueably the most liberal rag in AZ. Pretty good for restaurant reviews.

    Here is some thing that you might want to read to get a more realistic understanding of things here.

    More states should do what Arizona is doing since the federal government is doing very little about illegal immigration.

    "...another step forward in protecting the state of Arizona."

    "...the bill represents another tool for our state to use as we work to solve a crisis that we did not create and the federal government has refused to fix -- the crisis caused by illegal immigration." --Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer

    Sorry, I didn't see the link that supported any of the factoids you offered.

    And, again I'm not objecting to immigration law in general, it's this odious one by State Senator Russell Pearce I am objecting to.

    I just hope that it will be well remembered in the years and decades to come that it was a Republican-controlled government that has delivered this despicable law upon the people of Arizona.

    Yes, the Left is hugely annoyed that anyone would understand what the word "illegal" means in the term "undocumented downtrodden immigrant".

    I agree with the Conservatives on this one. The feds have failed to act on what has become a growing problem. Arizona has a Constitutinal right to pass such a law and to enforce it. It may not be entirely fair, but something had to be done eventually and Arizona go there first.

    Well, there you have it.

    When famous comedian make a point, they just have to be right and no one on the left should exercise any further brain cells on the matter.
