“As elected leaders, I implore you to stop the efforts of anti-immigrant bills,”

No problem…how about some anti-illegal-immigrant bills then?

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, who participated in the immigration session, both said Arizona faced unwanted scrutiny and economic harm because of SB 1070, the state’s sweeping 2010 illegal immigration law.

Well, it didn’t take long for Rothschild to embarrass us, following in the proud footsteps of Braindead Bob. SB1070 was intentionally smeared by the open-borders crowd, and mindless drones blindly drank the kool-aid. If any of these lazy people would take 15 minutes out of their lives and actually read the damn law, they’ll see that SB1070 detractors are split into three camps…those who are blatantly open-borders, liars, and idiots who don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.

I’ll state-again-that we don’t need to reform anything…we just finally need to implement and enforce the laws that are there. How in the hell do you know whether or not anything needs to be reformed if you haven’t tried using it?

Study the website of JUDICIAL WATCH is a public watchdog group Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law. They uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities. Finally CAPSWEB informs the public about the coming nightmare of OVERPOPULATION that is already exhibiting itself in our deteriorating infrastructure. TELL YOUR POLITICIANS THAT YOU HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE ISSUE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION BY CALLING WASHINGTON AT 202-224-3121

Center for American Progress translates to Center For American Regression. This unthink tank churns out consistently, open borders anti enforcement of law policy.  I hope taxpayers in no way fund this ultra-lib anti American pro illegal border jumpin organization. Consistently featured on this news site, it doesnt take long to realize the nauseating agenda of these creeps. Angela Maria kelley is actually vice president for “illegal” immigration policy for the CFAP. Close the border.

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
