    • Here’s an article in favor of the law. I tried to find the actual law to read it and post it here but was unable to locate it. I know it’s an emotional topic but I’d actually like to see the law before forming my own opinion.

    • Just wanting a little feedback since this law could possible have a big impact on that state, especially if other states are considering a boycott.  

      By the way, Cristina, my face looks goood! I’m looking forward to seeing the results after a fair amount of time using the serums.

    • What I did to find the following is search:

      ~ SB 1070:

        AMENDING TITLE 11, CHAPTER 7, ARIZONA REVISED STATUTES, BY ADDING ARTICLE 8;
      AMENDING TITLE 13, CHAPTER 15, ARIZONA REVISED STATUTES, BY ADDING SECTION
      13-1509; AMENDING SECTION 13-2319, ARIZONA REVISED STATUTES; AMENDING TITLE
      13, CHAPTER 29, ARIZONA REVISED STATUTES, BY ADDING SECTIONS 13-2928 AND
      13-2929; AMENDING SECTIONS 23-212, 23-212.01, 23-214 AND 28-3511, ARIZONA
      REVISED STATUTES; AMENDING TITLE 41, CHAPTER 12, ARTICLE 2, ARIZONA REVISED
      STATUTES, BY ADDING SECTION 41-1724; RELATING TO UNLAWFULLY PRESENT ALIENS.

      There are several amendments included into this version and don’t know if it’s the latest ~ Found this PDF file [Link Removed]

      ... and haven’t read it yet myself, yet.

      I believe that if you do a search for the above (SB 1070) and add onto the end whatever “Section” you want to read further / more detail will give you more?

      I’ll go check that assumption for myself, too.

      I think this would be better than depending on the media / blogs where I believe we only get the view of that outlet’s agenda.

      We can follow like sheep in opinion, get caught up in the chatter or we can go to the source and sort it out for ourselves.  I personally prefer the latter.

    • I’m not so sure the law is fair... and I wouldn’t want some over zealous cop taking it too far either... BUT... something has to be done... I’m sick and tired of people just coming into our borders... and others from other countries... especially European countries have to wait years to come move here legally because of strict quotas..
      We need better border protections.  I’m all for someone trying to get a better life by coming here... but it has to be done legally. I fully understand the frustration that caused this bill in the first place.... the feds need to do a better job.

    • Thanks Jean for looking further into the actual law. My concern with all the protests is that a mob mentality has come about and many are protesting something just because someone got them all stirred up. I seriously doubt that the majority of these people actually understand the law. It was created out of public outcry with kidnappings, the killing of the rancher by a drug trafficer and the lack of any federal help from our government.

    • I totally agree, Cynthia.  That’s why I said... follow like sheep.

      Too many people just look for something to get angry about instead of taking the time to find out the facts and be part of the solution.

      I think for some it’s they think they’ll get something for free.  Another is they‘re afraid of attacks themselves if they don’t follow the mob.

    • Living in a border state, and a small coastal community in Southeast Texas overrun by illegal immigrants from Mexico, I am extremely passionate about this issue.  Everyone is entitled to an opinion, certainly, but this is very personal in my daily life.

      First and foremost, I fear the danger brought on from the drug trafficking associated with illegal immigration.  My heart aches for the family of the dead rancher in Arizona attacked on his own land.  Additionally, my children are impacted everyday in school in numerous ways.  And I pay much more than most in taxes to support the illegal population because I am surrounded by them.

      If the Feds are not interested in stopping the flow of illegal immigrants, I say then LET THE STATES PROTECT US!

      There are already requirements in the law that force us to carry documentation of who we are, so I see no civil rights threats to adding this law to Arizona’s books.  For pete’s sake, we have to carry registration to identify our cars.  Why not ourselves, too?

      I want Texas to step up and follow Arizona’s lead....and do it NOW, before Arizona’s illegal population infiltrates our area.

      Like Term said, if you‘re not breaking the law, you have nothing to worry about.  And the reality is that overzealous cops can harrass all of us for a whole variety of reasons, not just immigration status.

    • Oh Tamra we have the very same thing here.  A convenience store down the street where there is probably 40 day laborer’s standing on the corner hoping someone will pick them up for work.  The cops drive by constantly and NEVER harrass or run the people off.  I don’t understand why the cops have never done anything.  I know if I change lanes without using my blinker I get pulled over!  That actually happened to my yoga instructor the other day, and she was actually using her turn signal but the cop ticketed her because she made a negligent lane change.tongue out

    • Angelcart, tt seems so ridiculous to ticket for a minor traffic violation in this environment, doesn’t it!  Yet, I think the local law enforcement is somewhat restricted on what it can do with respect to immigration laws, hence the reasons for the actions taken in Arizona. Therefore, I hope that Texas will soon take similar actions to enable local law agencies to protect us.  Especially for the sake of my sons.

      Actually, the Texas mindset is typically strong with respect to adherence to the law, so I am optimistic we will see something take place here to hamper the illegal immigration.  Gov Perry has asked the feds on more than one occassion to get down here and control the border, so I know our State is not just turning a blind eye.

      Til then, guess I’ll brush up on my Spanish.
