    Then you and I are on the same side (as long as we ain't in the same state ).

    True. However, I do think that the Fed should be able to withhold money for social services and public works as leverage in persuading states to standardize their immigration policies.

    Not doing this would be just as much of a political statement as doing it.

    Well, if I had my way, that wouldn't matter so much because the whole tax system would get flip-flopped.

    Love the decision. Good on 'em.

    Here's the thing, though. Because I'm an actual small government conservative I support Arizona's right to pass whatever laws/rules they deem fit. I also support areas on Illinois making the choice to boycott (more directly as well).

    How many of the "conservatives" here are actually willing to take the same stance about a school in a state that has jack **** to do with them?
    It sounds like the school's decision was an authoritarian one and the stakeholders were not given proper input into what appears to be a moronic decision.

    3 billion dollars a year.... Arizona taxpayer dollars spent on the illegals problem. 3 billion. That's a number that rises to the level of "political".

    true=to the students but not to the parents- and schools ought to spend more time teaching and less time grandstanding.

    But the clowns who made that decision ought to be fired

    Who are they punishing with this decision, Arizona or the students?
