On this 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing when we all should be remembering that hatred has no place in a civilized society, we are confronted with the reality that hatred exists to an even greater degree than 15 years ago, takes all forms and in several instances has resorted to once again, in our country's history, to masquerade as law. The entire nation is waiting to see what happens in Arizona in the next five days. That's how long the governor has to decide what to do with Senate Bill 1070. It's a bill that would make it a state crime to be in the country illegally and require local police to enforce federal immigration laws.
If the bill is signed, it would make Arizona the first state to criminalize undocumented immigrants. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has five days to sign it, veto it or do nothing and allow it to become law.
Needless to say, advocates and sympathizers are staging protests, building websites and even asking President Obama to intervene before such a bill can pass into law.
There is a real fear that if this bill passes it doesn't just emboldened bad cops to abuse their authority but will empower the regular Arizonan, who thinks he doesn't like Latino immigrants, to police his community so as to turn in anyone he thinks is undocumented.

As soon as he wins or loses in the primary - McCain will push for amnesty with Lindsay Graham-nesty.
McCain sickens me.
In McCain’s defense, DID THE LATINOS get out the vote for him?
McCain and his supporters will shove their “path to citizenship” down our throats the first chance they get.
is anyone fooled by McLame’s 11th hour flip flopping?
Yes, wanting the immigration laws of the U.S. enforced so as to keep the rift-raft out is all about hatred. What a moron.
Why be shocked? It’s an election year, dummies. What’s Mexican for Dummy?
Latino community? No such thing...their is Hispanics from a wide variety of countries here in the USA...proud Americans too....on the other hand there is the wetback population from the zone of mexico. Its not really a country.
There is nothing quite so insulting as being lied to by someone who knows that you know they are lying. This is McCain looking us in the face and saying “What are you going to do about it?”
“McCain’s reversal on immigration shocks many in the Latino community”
The good news is they heard about it in English!!
Oh please. It’s called an “election year” and Juan has a challenge for a change. End of story. He’ll go right on selling out the nation and the American people once he’s been re-elected, don’t you worry about that.
If this passes, it will be interesting to see how Arizona's health care costs decrease (provided this happens before 0bamacare takes effect).
I don’t care what you say, that there was funny!
Apologies to Larry the Cable Guy.
Good, but I’d equate Gutierrez with a snake...
Sometimes these things just hit me and I gotta say it...I get a headache if I keep them in.
