Re: “SB 1070 Follow-Up: Sen. Russell Pearce's Next Plans

That is the truth. Greed, Racism, ignorance, not wanting to help, thinking about me and screw everbody else...all these issues are what have led to the problems we have today. When my ancestors, the native americans owned all this land and Europeans arrived to this land, they accepted them. Now in present times those that have come have desired to come because they have dreams that want to accompolish. They have a drive in them that many Americans don't have... the drive is to accompolish there goals and support their families. When you say that they come here and take jobs, that is not true at all. They are working for little pay, long hours and very hard labor jobs neither you and I would like to do for $8/ hr. Everywhere you look, an immigrant has left their mark, their proof of being a hard worker. The next time you eat a salad with fresh picked veggies, think about picking those vegetables all by yourself, under the hot blazing sun when it is 100 degrees outside and working 10 hr days and getting dehydrated. How about where you work? Look at the building you work in and imagine mixing concrete and laying bricks to make that structure while it is 30 degrees outside or 100 degrees during the summer. Or maybe you work in an office that hires an outside crew to clean the office, do you appreciate the clean windows, bathrooms, freshly vacuumed rugs and dust free workplace? Maybe it is that new road downtown that was built during the wee hours of the night and early morning so that the traffic issues in the area would be resolved. These people work hard and because they dont have papers, they cant recieve tax credits such as the EITC credits, I know this for a fact. And if your Hispanic and think that the law in AZ is okay, you apparently have and identity issue and have been either brainwashed or accept racism. The key is to fix the Immigration system, help those that are here get there papers and create a system that will allow people to come to this country legally. Hey NO ILLEGALS ALLOWED apparently you have some issues or maybe someone teased you about being hispanic when you were younger, whatever it is find out. This country needs people that are not ashamed of where the come from. I dont know if your Mexican or Latin American, but my family that has served this country didn't let others take away their pride for being hispanic. Maybe you should use all that negative energy and do some good. How about you find out who the hispanic drug traffickers are and put them all on a bus and take them to prison... I will support you on that note. They are the biggest problem.
