Boycotting the Grand Canyon to protest S1070

I am 59 years old, and one of my remaining goals in life is to visit the Grand Canyon.

But, I ask myself, what does an illegal immigrant look like?

I fear that it might be a person in a t-shirt, jeans, sneakers, driving a 4-year-old car with maps, a cooler and knapsack of clothes. Because of the new unconstitutional and anti-American law allowing you to stop and demand citizenship papers, I will be boycotting your state.

I hope you will immediately cancel this law and let me achieve this item on my “to-do-before-I-die” list.

  1. Have you actually read the law?

    It is apparent that you haven’t because it clearly states that the police can’t just stop and demand citizenship papers because they feel like it. It works similar to the seat belt law. If you don’t buckle up the police don’t pull you over and give you a ticket, but if you speed or break the law in another way and do not have your seat belt buckled then you get a ticket for both. Same with the immigration bill — you can only be stop and your citizenship status questioned after the police pull you over for some other law that you might break.

    Get your facts right first before you miss out on the Grand Canyon which by the way is a National Park and not a state park.

  2. I really don’t know what an illegal immigrant looks like what does any criminal look like? Illegal is not a sick bird! It is a person who has unlawfully entered our country by committing a criminal act. When a law enforcement officer engages anyone for normal police interaction the officer upon reasonable suspicion can ask for identification that would indicate proof of citizenship which is something as simple as a driver’s licenses or State ID card from a State other from thoes that issue them through 7-11’s . Let us face it those who oppose what Arizona is doing want to destroy the Sovereignty of the United States of America. I am not against immigration I want lawful immigration. By the way, I was going to fly to Texas this year but I’m driving and making a point to spend two night in Arizona,

  3. THIS WAS VERY EVIDENTLY WRITTEN BY SOMEONE WHO HAS NOT READ THE LAW. OBAMA’S PROPER RESPONSE TO THIS LAW (WHICH IS ALMOST WORD FOR WORD A COPY OF THE FEDERAL LAW) WOULD HAVE BEEN TO HELP AZ WHILE ARIZONANS ARE BEING MURDERED, BURGLARIZED, RAPED, ETC., ETC. THE ONLY REASON THIS IS HAPPENING IN THE FIRST PLACE IS THAT THE FEDS ARE NOT PROTECTING THE STATES FROM INVASION WHICH IS THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY. INSTEAD OF PUNISHING AZ FOR TRYING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM AN ILLEGAL INVASION, THE FEDS SHOULD BE PROTECTING THEM BUT THEY’RE NOT! MY PARENTS ARE IMMIGRANTS. “IMMIGRANTS” ARE ONLY PEOPLE WHO COME LEGALLY (THEY GET ON LINE AND WAIT FOR YEARS, GO THRU BACKGROUND CHECKS AND HEALTH CHECKS). ILLEGAL ALIENS (CORRECT IMMIGRATION TERM) SNEAK, STEAL AMERICANS’ JOBS BY UNDERCUTTING OUR WAGES, TONS OF THEM HAVE VIOLENT CRIMINAL RECORDS AND TONS OF THEM ARE TERRORISTS. THE JOB THIEVES HAVE STOLEN 16 MILLION AMERICANS’ JOBS. THEY CAN EASILY BE MADE TO LEAVE BY MANDATING THE E-VERIFY SYSTEM FOR ALL EMPLOYERS. WITHOUT A JOB, THEY WILL SELF-DEPORT. AND EACH STATE SHOULD PASS AN SB 1070! IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. IT IS A VERY FAIR LAW AND IS AZ’ WAY OF HELPING ENFORCE THE LAWS! I HAVE 2 FRIENDS IN AZ WHOSE CHILDREN HAVE ALL BEEN MURDERED BYILLEGALS FROM MEXICO. ALSO, AN ILLEGAL JUST MURDERED AN AZ RANCHER RECENTLY WHO WENT OUT TO GIVE HIM WATER. HE BLEW THE RANCHER AWAY AND HIS DOG, THEN RAN BACK TO MEXICO. A WEEK LATER 4 ILLEGALS TRIED TO MURDER A DEPUTY! I CAN GO ON AND ON! BY THE YEAR 2066, ILLEGAL ALIENS HAD PERPETRATED OVER 1 MILLION SEX CRIMES AGAINST AMERICANS. 85% OF ALL CHILD MOLESTATIONS HAVE BEEN PERPETRATED BY ILLEGALS!
