IMMIGRATION: Nothing wrong with Arizona’s actions

I am at a loss to understand the commotion about Arizona’s attempt to rein in and get a handle on an illegal problem our liberal government seems reluctant to effectively deal with.

As for “civil rights,” where is it written that anyone has the right to illegal acts then meld into the masses without fear of detection?

As for “racial profiling,: when did the word “profiling” connote such negativity? Profiling is simply statistical analysis of given real data. When a pattern is detected, it is fact, not emotional bias.

There are in place real methods to enter this country legally. Unfortunately, so many have seen fit to circumvent this and now have created a scenerio that will be nearly impossible to rectify.
