    Maybe would should just start shooting them when they try to cross into the US, maybe then they will think twice about what they are doing. It hardly seems illegal if there arent any consequences.

    UNBELIEVABLE! Has anyone read Mexico's laws on illegal immigrants or even legal immigrants for that matter! If you are not a natural born citizen of Mexico you have no rights at all, period!

    Mexico has much bigger problems than Arizona's immigration law. Mexico should let AMERICANS decide if the law is right or not. Illegal immigrants need to get out of our country. P.S. I fired a landscaping crew because they could not prove to me their workers were here legally. I hired 2 American citizens to the work and glad I did. GO HOME ILLEGALS. COME BACK LEGALLY. YOU WILL BE WELCOME WHEN YOU ENTER THE USA LEGALLY. Until then, stay the F out.

    I would like to once see someone scream and yell at Mexico's government to IMPROVE things in Mexico so that they don't want to leave their homeland. Why is it that ILLEGAL's and the low life lawyers that they hire insist on things improving here in the US but you don't do that for your own homeland????? The time has come that we tell Mexico to shove it! They have no rights to tell us what to do when they have no interest in helping or improving their own country for all of their citizens. This is beyond acceptable and we should all voice our opinions because we are US citizens and WE HAVE A RIGHT! Mexico – take care of your own people!!!!!!!!

    What a joke. Mexico is a failed state and nothing they say or do can fix it. They have been taken over by drug cartels and corrupt police and government officials. To the president of Mexico I say – WHATEVER – talk to the hand!

    What status does Mexico have to ask a US court do anything? Fix that hell-hole to the south of us and your citizens will stop breaking our laws...

    Mexico has some serious cajones trying to influence our politics. But I guess with Obama in charge, it's pretty easy for them to do so. I want to file a lawsuitagainst Mexico for sending their trash and criminals here to become our problem.

    I think that people of Arizona have the right to choose their own laws. it is appalling that a foreign government, specially a corrupt government is trying to mandate what laws should be enforced in the US. I have nothing against the people that are trying to enter the US legally.Most of the illegal Mexicans are descent hard working people, but it does not give them the right to cross the border illegally. But the blame lies with our government that is so lame that will not and can not stop the flow of the illegals.

    You people are totaly missing the point.
    1. Pulled over by the police.
    2. Making purchases on my department store credit card.
    3. When I show up for a doctor's appointment.
    4. When filling out a credit card or loan application.
    5. When applying for or renewing a driver's license or passport.
    6. When applying for any kind of insurance.
    7. When filling out college applications.
    8. When donating blood.
    9. When obtaining certain prescription drugs.
    10. When making some debit purchases, especially
    if I'm out of state.
    11. When collecting a boarding pass for airline or train travel.
    12. when you go to vote.

    All these are done to protect against idenity theft NOT for proff of citizenship.
    I can not believe how ingnorant some of you are!!!
    How woulld you like to be walking dwon the street and have an officer pull stop you and ask you for citizenship papers mainly because of the color of your skin?Do really think they are going to stop white people and ask proof of citizenship...NO!!! The law is race based!!!
    As for as someone saying that illigeals are doing all the traffic your stupid!!!! better check your facts.
    As far is mexicans doing, selling and causing all the in this countryviolence... that too is also based on ingnorance!!!
    I live in a city with a large Hispanic population and I can tell you that the Hispanics are not the cause of crime in my city.

    I do agree that something needs to be done to stop all nationalities from coming to this country illegally but this law will not solve the problem and before you ingnorant inviduals start spewing your racists remarks maybe you should get your fact straight.
