That says a lot about the state's problem, then.

I rarely align myself with groups. I prefer to look at each issue on it's own merits.

But, specially to address you question:

What was the so-called Founding Fathers' intent for minorities?

Slavery, under-aged sex partners, and other fun stuff for some of them,

and the others? drive them out of the land, shoot them on site if they appear to be disagreeable and do not cooperate with you taking their property.

So, this legislation is indeed, moderate and tolerant by comparison.

Are you arguing for the good old days of our blessed, divinely inspired Founding Fathers?

No, I'm trying to figure out how those that argue the "this is not what the Founding Fathers had in store for this country" crowd argue walling up our borders and making immigrants an enemy? To me it smacks of hypocrisy. Especially when the cost to do so would be a waste...

I just wish the Tea Partiers would be a little more consistent, but since it's conception it's been nothing but contradiction.

Where is your critical thinking?


These tea partiers are a much better lot than the Founding Fathers.


Founding Fathers built walls, (settlements, forts) and exterminated people.

But now those in this country legally are subject to harassment from officers that is perfectly legal.

Harassment? Is that how you describe every interaction with a police officer.

We aren't just talking about Mexican migrant workers here illegally. It's the violent drug wars, kidnappings and murders spilling over the border that forced Arizona's hand.

The legislation has support of 70% of the people of AZ.

CA, Texas are boarder states, too. I don't believe this legislation would pass there. What is different about AZ? Is the situation different there?

I did find this:

Human trafficking case nets 47 arrests; 80,000 illegally brought to U.S. in last decade | rgj.com | The Reno Gazette-Journal

This bill does absolutely nothing to address the actual problem. It doesn't even attempt to address it.

Every interaction with a police officer? Come on. Don't be that lazy.

Since most people dont walk around everyday with passports or birth certificates, i could see how a us citizen being stopped and questioned about their status could turn into an incident of "harassment". LPR cardholders (green card) are supposed to carry the card with them at all times, and can be penalized for not doing so.

If a cop pulls someone in that doesnt have proof of citizenship or legal status, there are methods to research that, which would have to be a part of the immigration training the police recieve. (or should recieve if they get to enforce immigration law)

or we could just make it easier for the "illegals" to become legal. (calm down, i'm not talking about opening the door for everyone to move here, i'm talking about people already here. employed, law-abiding men and women who moved here for whatever reason.) then instead of wasting taxpayers' money stopping every dark-skinned person, we can benefit from the additional tax revenue.
