    Arizona has passed the strictest immigration bill in American history. A hundred people have been stopped already — and that was just in one van

    isnt there a portion in legislation already existing that allows the federal government to levie a fine against illegal Emigrants?

    If you want to put a real damper on future illegal migration why not hit them with a Fine. one they must pay each year they are illegal immigrants in the US.

    What's the big deal??? If you are here legally, then you won't mind being checked on. Why should we tax paying Americans fund our hard earned dollars for illegals? Gaines is whole heartedly correct.

    Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You – Matthew 7:12

    I do not understand how some "so called" conservatives who generally believe in God are refusing to help their neighbors, faith alone is not enough but it has to be reflected in our actions.

    It is time for a Comprehensive Immigration Reform, let us not forget that we all will be held accountable on how much we loved those around us and not on mere laws.

    "WHATEVER YOU DID UNTO ONE OF THE LEAST,
    YOU DID UNTO ME" Matthew 25:40

    Actually none of us would be here if the Native Americans would have had Immigration services. We are a nation of immigrants period. Our nation is the land of opportunity, stop your selffish prejudice and racism. I wonder how many of you would be willing to work on the fields, construction, maintenance, streets cleaning, etc. for minimun wage or many times even less than that.

    It 's ime for real change, and if you mind the mind the new immigrants, go back to your roots and go home.!!!
