Arizona backers!

AP article, copied and pasted

DETROIT – Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox has filed a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona's immigration law.

The Republican gubernatorial candidate said Wednesday that Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court. Michigan is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands.

Cox says states are authorized to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders.

The Arizona law directs officers to question people about their immigration status during the enforcement of other laws and if there's a reasonable suspicion they're in the U.S. illegally.

President Barack Obama's administration recently filed suit to block it, saying immigration is a federal issue.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

That's great

I just saw this when I logged onto Yahoo. I wish that my state were one of those joining in on the brief.

I'm somewhat amazed that the Northern Marianas Islands are part of the group. I know nothing about these islands. Can anyone fill me in?

appear to be a strategic holdover from WWII, they are a commonwealth of the US and I too am amazed that they are a part of the group as well as they have a large population of foreign workers in the garment industry.

Here is what Wiki has to say: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Mariana_Islands

Due to the Politicians, like some big Global Corporations have greatly benefited by exploiting third world labor pools over the last serveral decades. There is about 40% of Americans who actually are employed are now working in Service Jobs which often veary low paying! What can we do to change this.

Are these states going to pass legislation
as AZ did or just say we believe AZ has
the right to enforce their new law ?

If they are going to back AZ they need to share
some of the heat. Get off the pot Gov Rick Perry
Texas and pass a law. Talk is cheap and AZ is
going to need real backers to back Obama Boy
down.

Go AZ

Immigration

I am confused as to how anyone in the entire world can disagree with border security. If you sneak into the country of Russia or Vietnam you will be killed in most cases by whomever finds you...

I have to say that if I get pulled over I expect for a good reason... That the officer will run my name and make sure I am not a mass murderer wanted for crimes against humanity, or that I am not legally supposed to be there... This makes sense... Now if you get pulled over for being Mexican that is messed up just the same as if you get pulled over in compton for being white...

We have some problems in this country and we need to begin to do something about them, or just accept them and let the country to down the toilet....
