The state House approved a bill Thursday to expand Arizona's trespassing law to make illegal immigrants' presence in Arizona a crime and to enable local authorities to arrest them.

I would really love to see the State Senate pass this up to Nappy around June/July. She will really squirm trying to figure out what to do.AWB

" wished the governor of Texas, Rick Perry, had the gonads to stand up to the illegals. He lost my vote next Nov."
You hit it on the head - this is the ONLY reason the Dem Gov. of AZ is pushing this now ... re-election. She's hoping to save her skin.
I agree. Can't stand politicians. Man oh man, whatever happened to statesmen, patriots?
Nappy will veto! Then call pubs hate mongers...
I'm glad I live in Georgia. Sonny has a set .... oo
It's a start.
Thanks for the ping Rat! I was just saying on TM this is what we have to do, state by state, I have no hope for Illinois
Sorry we're full. You'll have to wait until we deport a few more illegals before we will have any room./sarc AWB
"The State ACLU, MALDEF, LULAC, MeChA,.... will all be screaming bloody murder."
That's the idea.
My only concern is that the latter 3 won't just be screaming bloody murder eventually.
Ping, if you don'tmind. Can this work?
