    The sad thing is, america had the law loooooong before Arizona came up with it.

    Sadly, we have leadership who do not have the guts to enforce it!

    But seeing as though the majority of americans support that law, leadership may be forced to start implementing it. Otherwise, they won't be leading jack shit!

    I think we'll see more states follow AZ's lead. We simply cannot ignore the problem.

    Washington....Republican, Democrat or Independent will do NOTHING on this issue until at least after the mid-terms. If anyone is still questioning what is wrong with our Government, look no further than this.

    Correction:

    What DC will do is threaten to withhold Federal Funding to such states for the morass of Federal mandated programs forced on the states in order to blackmail them into giving up on enforcing immigration laws.

    Got proof? Has this already been stated by the WH? Obama has already stepped in doo-doo on this one. I can't believe he would go even farther.

    Don't you mean "will the American states adopt the Federal regulations as state law"?

    The way I am hearing it, Arizona just became an arm to the Federal government on matters of immigration.

    And to that little girl with the undocumented mommy--Moms going back! She knew trespassing was illegal! Mommy should be thankful that we do not shoot border jumpers--now tell your mommy to jump back over!!

    I doubt it. We seem far closer to doing away with the idea of a border altogether than enforcing immigration law.

    We'll see what happens. Look at how more Stimulus funds were handed out to states which voted for Obama as opposed to the ones that went for McCain.

    The political process provides numerous opportunities for soft threats to be applied. There is no way Obama is going to hold a press conference (remember, he avoid those these days) to announce how the blackmail will be applied. But watch where there money flows. That will tell the story.

    I don't see any difference between the current federal immigration law and the Arizona law except the feds don't enforce the law.

    In the proposed legislation, the path to citizenship for illegal aliens, the national id card, and punishment for those who hire illegals will meet with opposition from both sides. These are all practical methods to solve the problem, however unpopular they may be.

    The new immigration law is unlikely to pass before the midterm elections. Considering the polarization we are seeing now, I suspect that the Obama immigration legislation will go the route of the Bush immigration legislation.
