Being a former resident of the great state of Arizona, I am in favor of the act to preserve Arizona’s quality of life by cracking down on illegal immigration.

I feel all states that are boycotting Arizona should then allow all illegals residency in their state. So California, Washington, Oregon and all others with such sympathy to illegal immigrants’ plight – welcome these people into your state.

I notice the key word “illegal” being left out of most articles. We are not deterring immigration to this country – just illegal entry. It’s not even a racial issue. If we had millions of Irish men coming across illegally, it would be them we would concentrate on.
