    Thank god! And if you want to read a very good diverse set of comments from posters on this, go to the link above. Here are a few:


    Cameron Ford

    "See now this is a practical, common sense, and fair way to deal with illegal immigration that doesn't involve racial profiling or infringing on the constitutional rights of legal American citizens that happen to have brown skin."

    "As a LEGAL immigrant, I too object to those who hire illegal aliens. I had to go through a lengthy process before finally being placed on an immigrant visa waiting list... even though my wife was born in the U.S. It took just over two years to get my visa, but it was well worth the wait.

    I pay my full share of taxes, etc., and don't play the system. I don't see why those who jump the queue and sneak across the border, evade paying taxes, and use State benefits (education, medical, etc), should be allowed to stay here. I've advocated for years to prosecute those who hire illegals as a cheap source of labor. As patHuntington mentioned... if illegals couldn't find work here, they wouldn't come here. That way, those who apply for legal residence in the U.S. probably wouldn't have to wait so long for their green cards. I fully support Arizona's business immigration law."

    Yeah, I'm sure those comments will come. It's racist that I get asked for my Social Security Number too! Damn those employers.

    Good call. Let the crackdown begin. It's not racist at all, it simply requiring employers to follow the law.
