    and it would probably be a lot more effective than SB1070.  It's a shame that so many of those who are decrying this law are more interested in sticking up for the illegal aliens than pushing for laws that would punish employers.

    •  There is already a federal law... (3+ / 0-)

      that allows ICE to go after employers that hire undocumented workers. SB1070 was an unnecessary piece of legislation brought into being for the sole purpose of being divisive.

    •  What a friggin insult (14+ / 0-)

      After spending 18 years in uniform and swearing an oath to this Constitution, after sacrificing a considerable amount of health in combat for this country to be granted VA benefits, that someone would discredit my interest in this law by stating with no evidence what-so-ever, that we are more interested in protecting "illegal aliens"

      Buddy, it has to do with the 4th Amendment, go look it up.  I did, because I wanted to know what exactly I was swearing to defend concretely and not some abstract idea like a stupid flag.

      And even if it didn't have to do with a violation of the US Constitution, the last I looked, "illegal aliens" were still human being and not invaders from Alpha Centari.
