Something is being done about the illegal immigrants in a couple of states. The arrests have increased from 77% to 100% for the fiscal year 2007 in the following two states. My question is do you think it is enough? Do you not think that more states should take this as a good example?

I just saw a news report stating the Arizona is also arresting illegal immigrants. And in the same report, the news caster stated that these laws that the states are creating (44 so far) will probably be over turned in court by the federal courts! Unbelievable!

Well it is nice to know that at least two states are making an effort. My next question would be what are they doing with them after they arrest them.....and how well are they doing identifying them all. Lord knows more states should be doing the same.

As you are not one of my favorite myLot members I had intended to just ignore you BUT as you will not go away and leave me alone I just had to comment to your response. I think you are fixated on terrorists! I am intelligent enough to know that there are many LEGAL immigrants who bring much to our country. I know having been one. I detest ILLEGAL immigrants. I was a LEGAL immigrant at one time. When I came to the States I had already worked for the US government for 12 years, 4 years in North Africa, 8 years in Germany, been married to an American for 8 years and I did not get any breaks. I paid taxes, obey all the laws, studied hard to pass the test and paid $400.00 to apply for citizenship. Why the hell should they get away with breaking the laws, reap the benefits that should only be for legally law abiding residents??? If they don't want to be legal in our country and get citizenship the hard way then send them back to wherever they came from!

Currently, my Representative, AZ - Trent Franks, has sponsored the "Secure Borders First Act" H.R. 2954. This act does the dollowing" 1) Secure the borders FIRST. 2) Enhance training and increase the number of Border Patrol agents. 3)Enforce current US immigration laws. 4) Require mandatory detention of all illegal immigrants apprehended at the border, eliminating the current "catch and release" practice. 5) Mandate the deportation of aliens convicted of 3 DUIs. 6) Make English the nations's occicial language. 7) Deny certain tax deductions to employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. Personally, I think # 5 & 7 should be even stricter; but, this is a good start. SO, please contact YOUR representatives and request they support this bill.

I 100% agree that more states need to follow this excellent lead and do something before it's too late. I lived in a town that was totally overrun with illegals We were basically forced to move from the home we had raised our children in and the home that was all paid for. So here we are at retirement age with house payments, and the government keeps wanting to use our tax dollars to support all these people. I can honestly say I've never run into any American citizen who wants too these people in our country. They have their own country which they should go back and build into a better place. Every illegal and their families should be deported. I don't care if the children were born here. That's a stupid law. Children are the same nationality their parents are. This subject just always sends me off on a crusade. If the states won't take up the challenge, then the cities or the people need to do it. We're getting to the point of no return. I cringe when I think of the future. What happens when Mexicans out-number Americans? They'll take over the government and we'll end up being the United States of Mexico. What happened to immigration quotas? My favorite quote was when John McCain (the man who thinks he should be our President)said, "After all, illegal aliens are breaking any laws." Huh?
