I am a native of Arizona and have been aware of the immigration issues since early childhood. In the '70s it was an apparrent problem, but nobody seemed concerned. Now a person has but to simply drive down almost any street in any city in Arizona to realize the problem is way out of control. I beleive that the core at issue is this; " The first step into this country illegally is a crime, and shouyld be vehemently punished. Any and all property aquired while in this country illegally should be forfeited and the person should be deported forthwith. If they repeat the crime, they should be incarcerated and placed into a labor force to enhance with community cleanups and park maintenance; until they can be re-deported." If a US citizen breaks the law in Arizona we are held to task for it and subject to the full rule of law. Not being a legal citizen should be held as an aggravating circumstance and not to promote lenience. If a person wishes to become a US citizen they must first obey and respect our laws. Instead they break the law; Once upon defying our immigration laws; and then in every other thing they do while here. Those who defend them or protest for Any supposed rights for illegal immigrants should be held accountable; perhaps for treason. Politicians wishing to build a voter base using amnesty for these criminals are no more than asserting themselves as criminals who have no respect for our laws. There is no racism here. Simply facts. Right and wrong. Yet this subject is stretched far beyond the clear Black and White truth that to be here "ILLEGALLY"; is just that.Harboring or helping an "ILLEGAL" is also illegal. I see no issue except who is responsible enough to uphold our laws and enforce them. I fully support our Border Patrol officers and am aware that without them; who else would watch our backdoor for us.
