Re: “The Krentz Bonfire

Seriously how does sb 1070 secure the border? I see not 1 thing in there that is not already a law. Minus untrained, poorly allocated police forces making judgment calls on immigration and nationality. How a peace officer being able to have limitless power in arresting anyone they so do chose secures a border eludes me. How does that stop drugs at the border? How does that stop guns at the border? How does that address the real problem that the resources and man power promised by bush, "2000 border patrols" in 2002 that never came help?

SB 1070 is horrible as a law, great as a political stunt.

Re: “Law Enforcement Officer Shot in Pinal County

what? Please evidence, who have you heard say open the open the border? Who has said the want to retake AZ?

People oppose the bill because it is lousy. It doesn't address any concerns to protect the border, does not stop drug cartels, does address smuggling people, drugs, weapons etc...

The only thing it says that our current FED hasn't already made a law about is giving power to peace officers to arrest anyone. How does peace officers being able to arrest anyone they suspect help the border problem? Send some guys back that work in front of home depot back? I guess we got the drug smugglers then. It opens a door for officers not trained or not even close to being professional immigration identifiers to be in control of identifying illegal aliens.

This is sad, but not true. Sadly L. Banks chooses to mix facts about a poor slain human being with personal opinion and agenda. L. Banks does not back up with evidence nor cite where he gathers his stats.

He writes good "opinion" pieces, not news. News is not a higher % of speculation than facts.

Immigration reform is needed, badly. At best the SB 1070 will garner attn to some real action from the FED. To be in support of the bill is misguided, what in there will really help us secure our border? How much will it cost to train officers to be professionals in immigration procedures? How will we pay for this? Higher taxes? How will concentrate on the other violent crimes, where are we going to get the extra resources if not from the FED?
