Arizona is drowning and they have sought to force the issue with the federal government and the courts. Illegal aliens cause far more crimes than Americans, they take American jobs and there are terrorists among them that want to kill millions of Americans.
Right now, any law to control the illegal alien population is a good one until the congress decides to get off their collective large butts and put through a law with teeth. Unfortunately this will not happen until obama leaves office on January 20, 2013 and Arizona knows that.
This law is nothing more than a challenge to the court system and ultimately the supreme court. Hopefully it will drag on for the next 3 years until we have a Conservative President who will sign an immigration law with some teeth in it.
So Mr. Gerson you are all wet-back on this issue.
