    Assuming all of your figures are accurate and I had some kind of authority to act on both the state and federal level, I would start by repealing the Arizona law. I would then work on a Federal law that would bring about the policy of amnesty for illegal immigrants in the United States from Latin America.

    I would have a public awareness campaign in the border states and wherever it was relevant to assure illegals that they were no longer being hunted down, and I would direct the INS to begin the practice of granting either green cards or some new system of legal residence to former illegals. Citizenship tests would also be offered to those that desired them. Of course all attempts would be made to establish the individual's criminal record or lack thereof before granting any of these things.
    Thank God you are a very small minority in this country.

    Wow. I didn't even catch his selective Amnesty.

    Funny how he accuses this law of racial profiling buy he wants Amnesty only for Latin America.

    You can't get more hypocritical.

    As more States pass laws of this kind, and Illegal Aliens get pushed farther North, more States will be forced to pass laws...... and so on, and so on.

    I think boycotts are generally childish and not in the spirit of tolerance of differences or free expression. Just my opinion. I think it's generally a bad idea for States or Municipalities to start boycotting one another when laws are passed that they might disagree with.

    Ironically, btw, many, many Hispanic people work in the restaurant, hotel, and other tourist industries.

    Why shouldn't Boston be able to do what they want in this case?
    Who's not letting them do what they want? Did the conservative meanies take away all their power?

    Seriously, think before you post.

    I totally understand what you are talking about regarding the race card. Ot has been used against me innumerable times, and I am not racist. In fact, as a Catholic, I relate with Hispanics rather well because our shared religion is very important... not to mention that I used to be a soccer player...
