Go to school with no shirt on, you'll get a 3 term lifetime prison sentence. Whites do what they do because they can. There are absolutely no REPERCUSSIONS whatever they do to us. NONE!!!!!

But, those students received no punishment. Of course they didn't....and wouldn't especially if the faculty and staff are mostly WHITE. Why would they punish theirs and their friend's children? However, once the dust has settled and especially if HIllary wins...they won't be able to undo all the racist compromise they have allowed to spew during this election. Trump keeps putting his foot in his mouth...and quite frankly have disgusted many in his own party...this will the FIRST in history...

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.

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.

Arizona can only make this valid for Arizona. And the worst it can do is not to put a future candidate for president's name on the ballot for that state. They have no control over what happens anywhere else in the country. Plus the fact that they are effectively a "Red/Republican-controlled" state means that a Democrat presidential candidate couldn't "win" there anyway. It's really kind of sad how juvenile and petty (and basely racist) people in the Republican party really are.
