"Proposition 200 requires proof of citizenship when seeking some public benefits or when registering to vote. Government employees are required to report suspected illegal immigrants seeking public benefits or else face jail time and fines."
Can anyone really have a problem with this? Has the word illegal lost its true meaning?
"keep their children in school or avoid going out" - no, just go back to your homes - in Mexico. And. Don't. Come. Back. Ever.
What a concept.....expecting end users of a product to pay for it (or at least some of it). What will they think of next?
This proposition is not yet law -- get out of the country before you are busted, and come in the front door next time like everyone else had to do.
If this works well, I can imagine it happening everywhere eventually.
Good, I hope all of the illegals pull all of their children out of US schools. Invaders Out!
there will be some unemployed teachers....
This is a great law. It needs to be fully enforced - even sending the offenders back to Mexico and elsewhere - but with a reasonable hand.
My husband is a naturalized citizen. He came to the states from Canada, his uncle in the East Coast sponsored him, theuncle had to sign a contract that if my husband got into any trouble theuncle would be responsible. He would be respponsible for two years. My husband had to sign a conatract saying he would NOT seek any aid of any kind except emergency medical, also he had to show that he would be self supporting. He worked around for a bit,then joined the AirForce (Korean conflict) and upon discharge became a citizen.
Why can't we continue these very valid rules today???
I am afraid that the president will continue with his amnesty program....(just thought I would throw that in)
If this law is so racist, why is it the exact same thing that Mexico requires?
Illegal aliens are all criminals. What's with the sob stories?
Looks like enforcing the law is not necessary. Anyways, they should.
Not to worry...
some Clinton/Carter appointed Federal judge will over turn it.
That's what happened in CA.
"Has the word illegal lost its true meaning?"
It has, in the *Blue Areas*.
They do have these rules - if you come in legally.
I have a daughter-in-law who has been through the immigration hoops for over three years and just got her permanent status. The requirements and bureaucracy are simply staggering. It includes a sponsor and all the rest of the above.
It is just the illegal immigrants sneaking into this country who are skating away scot free with it. The law-abiding immigrants are put through the wringer, if they can even get admitted.
This is a great new law in Arizona!
I hope this law stands, but I know there will be challenges.
The ACLU is likely wetting it's collective pants right now.
