    I'm sick and tired of people coming here illegally. Anything that helps get rid of more illegal aliens I am ALL FOR!

    Mexico, if you don't like it, improve your government so your people will stop coming here!!!!

      Linda are you kidding me.... it is your people increasing the demand for illegal "aliens". Your lazy ass won't take low level jobs, your people demand smoke, coke, etc., and you love the cheap prices if and when you tarvel to mexico for your vacations. The government of the US and its inadequacies should be your focus, not ethnic hate.

    "Enough with the "We are All Immigrants" shenanigans. We earned this land by decimating a weaker people, we slaughtered and burned until the natives gave in. Cruel yes, unusual...only if you consider that's the basis for EVER CIVILIZED SOCIETY IN HISTORY, going back to Ghengis Khan and Alexander. If Mexico wants this country so bad, I say put you're dukes up."--->LOL Sean, behind ya 110% 😀

    My husband immigrated to this country from England 12 years ago. He became a proud US Citizen 3 years ago. Until he took that oath, he was required to carry his permanent resident card with him at all times to prove that he was here lawfully. He was told to do that by the immigration officer that issued the card to him. If you have nothing to hide, this law should not be a big issue.

    He went through the system and did everything by the book. We filled in every form and attended every appointment. There is no reason why anyone else wanting to come to this country for a better life cannot do the same...

    Doesn't mexico have it's own problems to worry about. Say like drug lords with mass amounts of weapons killing and threatening people?. Why won't some people just read the law and make an inteligent reply from there.

    wow, So as a liberal you think we should allow all immigrants to come here illegally? That is just to funny. Did you come here illegally? If you did not why should others come here illegally. Do you realize that Mexico has far worse punishment if you are cought sneaking into their country illegally? So I am wondering how a Country that is not in the Uni the united states because it is its own country can Sue a state. Did the state do anything to the country? Did the state in anyway affect how the country is run? The only thing the state is doing is sending people back to there country after they spend time in jail for ILLEGALLY crossing the border if they are caught. If you are a US citizen and you are caught doing something illegal than you must go to jail. Why should illegal immigrants get away with something that normal US citizens cannot. PS if you do not like the rules of the US MOVE OUT. MOVE AWAY as fast as you can. NOW!

    Hey Mexico...take care of your own and you wouldn't have to worry about it...oh yeah that's right...this IS how you take care of your own...you enable them to illegally enter another country and risk their lives and freedom by doing so...you encourage your citizens to blatantly disregard authority and empower them to take advantage of others, and then turn around and blame them for mistreating you. Perhaps we should just go and occupy your country, as you sure as hell can't handle it!

    to Andrew Messenger: the US military and the UN are the number one perpetrators of human trafficking, not illegals in the US.

    Mexico is on the brink of total anarchy. The government has no control anymore nor should be trusted. The cartels have taken over at the highest levels.

    I believe Arizona is on to something good and I support their law whole-heartedly. I am ashamed of the mayor of Los Angeles asking California to boycott Arizona. He certainly does not speak for the majority of US Citizens! Mexicans have to come to the USA legally like every other immigrant has to. Illegal immigrants cause Americans to have to pay for their numerous kids and their welfare, and that is not fine. Disrespecting our country is not fine! Defacing American property is not fine! Being a burden to the American people is not fine. Mexicans can come here legally, learn the English language, teach their kids the English language, teach their kids how to be respectful and how to be grateful for the privilege of living here. Mexicans are not welcome here illegally to become a burden on our society, and they should not be given the benefit of the American welfare system as if they deserve it, because they don't. Earn it. I had to, and I was born here.

    If you are NOT here for criminal purposes or looking to evade taxes...why would you not get your green card?
