I’m not for indiscriminate arrests and deportations based on ethnicity or race, but I guess the governor had to do something drastic about the ever growing immersion of illegal immigrants. The Federal government refuses to effectively deal with this thorny issue and so it is now left up to the states. Bush 41 had eight years to address the border problem but stridently refused to do so. He could have secured the borders under Home Land Security but looked the other way. So, the states are...

This is a someone ambiguous video and therefore can be easily misinterpreted. Let me explain why. The things that are missing from the video: 1. the fact that NON-WHITES are being targeted with this law. Which I believe was the intention all along. 2. This is a STATE law and NOT a federal law. Meaning the federal government is not endorsing this crap, so the state senator should shut up about President Obama "violating" their rights. (regarding what the state senator stated in response to...

This law is in conflict with federal law in the first place. However, don't hold your breath until it is struck down. This is merely yet another effort by racist whites to have control over non-whites in this country and I hope that ALL other non-whites in this country don't think that this is going to stop at Latinos/Mexicans or at the Arizona border. But, since a larger percentage of Latinos than makes any sense are/vote republican, maybe the Republican Latinos/Mexicans (and the...

Really Xeon? Yes, illegal immigrants today (Mexican looking people and not the many illegal Europeans often found in the Northeast *recall the wal-mart scandal in the early 2000's where they were hiring ILLEGALS to clean up their stores who were mainly WHITE) and all black and brown skinned people next. Its a slippery slope. I cannot believe that you are supporting this. I'm also at a loss for why if this guy was able to get a copy of this law in advance why so-called liberal white...

Xeon, I agree with your assessment that something has to be done with the abundance of illegial aliens that have over the decades and continue to flow freely in this country and the citizens of Arizona and it's Governor (a woman, not a man) who made a harsh & controversial decision but the problem I have with this not just the lack of federal response by previous Presidents that you mentioned and the continued lack of focus, urgency, completion and overall security of the borders but the...

Not sure which side I'm leaning on this fence. I understand the need to do something about the crime, but is this the right measure?

Ocatch, you can bet that tougher border security measures, more border patrol officers border upgrades and more technology will definitely be a large part of the new federal immigaration law and for the illegials that are already here who are established, have worked for years, raised families (with legal American born children in schools) have jobs and rent/mortgage notes who call America home, will be given the opportunity to come out of the shadows and after some harsh legal procedures...

@Ocatchings ... I like the way you said what you said! I kinda do know what side of the fence I'm on about this, though! While this law certainly isn't perfect (and the door for potential abuse of power and authority is wide open!) ... I ain't mad at AZ for taking steps to curb the illegal immigration problem in their state. I wish the rest of the country (either at the fed or state level) were taking a stand against it, too! Unlike most, I do consider illegal immigration a "problem" ...

Reference: In that video interview, Sheriff Arpaio said that one of the reasons that the law was passed so that he and law enforcement would not be interfered with by the federal authorities. This guy thinks that he is Matt Dillon from Gunsmoke.

This was a good read, but i note the reluctance on the writer's part to disrupt his relatives notions of lily-whiteness and even the family record keeper insisted on privacy re family affairs.

Thanks I read part 2 but part 3 wasn't working, out yet or my computer savviness is showing again. I recently got into an arguement down here about the good ole boy hero Jefferson Davis. It is a known fact that he fathered many children but none of the relatives can be found, (it is part of their heritage after all) and the die hards will not admit that he fathered the children, even though there are photos, and it is in writing (even in a supposed will).

An 'Oprah' program of about seven or eight years ago, featured a woman who had written a book on this subject. She contended that the African American-American population of that time would be doubled if all persons living their lives as, and contending they are, 'white' were to be revealed for the true lineage. Ironically, I don't see this as a validation of The African American Ethnicity, but rather as validation of the behavior and treachery of 'color construction' of our society.
