Sound Off: Your comments 4/29/10

Editor's Note: After Thursday night's AC360°, we heard from many of you about Arizona's Immigration law. The majority of comments were in favor of Arizona's new law. What do you think?


I support the new Arizona immigration law 100%. I wish every state passed a similar law.

They are here illegally to begin with. Where do they get off demanding anything? We pay high taxes in Texas because of these illegals that crowd the emergency rooms because they have no insurance. We welcome them if they go about it legally.

I am wondering why more air time is given to those opposed to the Arizona law than those for it. You have even had interviews with people from other countries–why? Shakira is from Columbia, so why does her opinion count for anything? I live in Arizona and I support the bill. Illegal aliens and legal immigrants are not the same thing–why aren't you reporting that?

    Come on people...be honest...the illegals have and will continue to clog the works and put honest, honorable U.S. citizens in the poor house. We all know that TOO MANY have been hired in place of or even worse to replace our citizens. I understand the desire to come here to better themselves and their families BUT not to the degree they are now allowed to because while bettering themselves they are making the lives of USA families harder and poorer. I am very proud of Arizonians.

    The new immigration law should not be controversial.....the way the law will be enforced MAY be controversial. Could it lead to racial profiling? Maybe. Could racial profiling not happen? Maybe. The law itself is not racial. But humans enforce laws and, believe it or not, humans can be racist. Perhaps everyone should give the law a chance to work and if there are individual humans that profile, then address those specific situations. At least this law does SOMETHING to try and resolve a real problem. Besides, Arizona has a right to address this problem as long as it aoolies to their own state. But.....others also have a right to protest and boycott....so let them.

    I am in favor of the laws of the land being upheld, but I am strongly against the collateral damage that will inevitably come with certain people being treated like human garbage.

    Thank you for reporting about the rancher that was killed and giving him a face and a voice to this problem. The arizona governor should call this law in his name, no one is talking about him, forget Shakira and the rest of these people is she even a citizen. THIS IS SO SAd please report more about him and his families loss.
