    You lack understanding of basic english reading skills if you have read the law and fail to understand where those of us who have read it don't see the discrimination.
    I don't see anywhere in the law that says you must "target" someone.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Hispanics flee Arizona ahead of immigration law

    I love how I'm apparently the only one who read the article, which does not mention anything about legal immigrants beyond the dishonest claim in the quote in the OP.

    Also:

    Juan Carlos Cruz, an illegal immigrant who has worked in plant nurseries for 20 years, huddled with dozens of relatives over the Memorial Day Weekend in the backyard of his brother's Phoenix-area home to plot out the family's next move to avoid what they say will be harassment by police. Virginia and California are the front-runners.
    I hope Arizona police read this article, so that they now have the name of an admitted criminal and can catch him before he moves to my state. Also: how were they interviewing (harboring) a fugitive criminal and getting away with it?

If the law is not discriminatory at all, yet there is this mass exodus; it is the fault of those who passed the laws and who supported the laws for not explaining the dynamics of the law.



    Illegal immigration has been around for a long time. The economic collapses is not the fault of that. They were predominately taking jobs that Americans were not, so no real problem there. We exploited the fudge out of them to get really cheap crap. Well there could be a problem there if you believe in human rights; but we still got the benefit.
    Oh Jesus H. Christ.

    Show me in the law where the discrimination is Or knock it off with the discrimination claims.

    This is an example of conservative principles forcing those who decide to be here illegally to take responsibility for their actions.

    Discriminatory practices are in the data. It's not white folk running, even though they can be illegal immigrants as well. And the jubilation expressed by some isn't that some illegals were caught, but rather that the hispanics were leaving AZ.

    One more thing. Hispanic is not a race. There are white Mexicans, black Mexicans, American Indian Mexicans, etc. Everyone who claims that this law would cause racial discrimination does not understand what race is.

    If the conservative nature of us taking personal responsibility were in place, we'd acknowledge our own actions which led to the build up and promotion of this "problem".
