    "They note that 77 percent of illegal aliens are Hispanic, while less than 5 percent of illegal and 10 percent of legal immigrants are European – so the idea that we are treating Europeans specially is specious. VDARE also points to a Center for Immigration Studies report that shows immigrants are much more likely to be on welfare than native-born American citizens."

    He obviously doesn't visit this board.

    Hey, that's a great idea! If you changed the Constitution, you could improve your ability to enforce the Constitution. I know Tom here is all about protecting and enforcing the US Constitution, he wants to change the parts he doesn't like, specifically:

    And then wham! he goes on defending SB1070, despite that it is entirely unconstitutional. Great Follower of the Constitution!!

    Listen up Tom, let me explain it to you: It's called the slippery slope. Legislation like SB1070 and other proposed "final solutions" to the "Mexican Question" give police an extraordinary amount of power - ostensibly for use exclusively on illegal immigrants, but with the ever present possibility of encroaching on American Citizens. I thought that was what conservatives are afraid of: a state with greater power because they distrust the it, and that's exactly what this type of thing does. One would have to be naive to believe that there was no way that the State could commit abuses with this expanded power, either covertly or eventually even overtly. This slide is made all the more probable when you consider the fact that the US government is currently operating secret prisons abroad and does indeed have a policy of assassinating US citizens. That's the kind of behavior it engages in, yet you're willing to potentially slide down that slope?

    yawn...conducting ourselves with peace and prosperity is such a foreign concept to Americans.

    Seriously, this country sucks.
