    Arizona immigrant law energizes Hispanics, Democrats | Reuters

    There is going to be backlash alright, but not the kind reuters is hoping for.

    Most Americans are sick of the illeagals and their panderers, massive rallies in support of law breakers will really hurt the dems come Novemeber, as if they needed more pain.

    I think illegal immigration is a real problem that needs to be addressed but I disagree with Arizona's approach. First, having read the actual bill, I don't think it provides a constitutionally applicable way of addressing the issue. There has to be
    for believing that a crime has been committed. Simply being Mexican or Latino is not a reasonable justification for that belief. Stopping people for a traffic violation is not a reasonable link to believe a person has committed the specified crime of illegal immigration -- or any other crime for that matter. You have to personally see or smell something that would indicate that.
    Secondly, the one area to me, that would yield results is severely crack down on those who hire illegal immigrants. Though it is addressed in the bill, the consequences are both weak and can be easilly avoided through an address change. Ironic, since this would force the businesses to eventually turn to American & legal labor, pay minimum wage in an above board manner, thus paying taxes on their employees, and contributing to the financial foundation of this country and its people. Gee, what a tradegy that would be!

    Can you imagine Reuters crowing that something "energized whites"?

    I'd say that most Dems are concerned with the civil rights of Americans being violated. And good that they are being galvanized.

    Tell me, Xeno...you claim to be non-partisan. But what issue have you ever sided against Republicans on except the Iraq invasion? :eusa_eh:

    The Civil Rights Act did that...energized Southern Whites right into the Republican Party.

    True.

    We may see the same thing coming from the "blacklash to the backlash" in Arizona -- i.e., if the liberal judges agree to shut down the law, the President bullies Arizona around, etc. -- which may well happen -- whites will get pissed.

    It's not about race. I don't know why so many of you are so damned stupid that you keep insisting this.

    Seal the borders, land Sea and Air. Deport every illegal alien we can find starting with those in our prisons. It's been done before it can be done again.
