Hi Ken,

I'm surprised you're in favor of this law. I'm opposed to illegal immigration, but this law strikes me as a stalking horse for the national ID card. Am I wrong about this?

Hi Matt,

If you're an American and you lived in southern Arizona on a ranch and had to directly confront the impositions of illegal aliens, I think you would have a very different point of view. Some people hold a very liberal view of crime and the treatment of criminals until they are victimized by it in a direct and forceful way. They say that one definition of a Conservative is a Liberal who's been mugged and there's much truth to that statement.

I don't support national ID cards for American citizens, but that's not the issue. The issue is the RIGHT of Arizonans to live and work in their state without putting up with the cost and crime imposed by hordes of illegal aliens. The issue is the RIGHT of law enforcement officials, who represent the collective will of the legitimate citizens of Arizona, to be able to interdict the illegal presence of and illegal work activity of illegal aliens who are engaging in a CRIME by virtue of their trespassing on America soil without government authorization.

Illegal aliens DO NOT POSSESS any of the rights under the US. Constitution guaranteed to American citizens. They are not citizens and therefore they enjoy no benefits under our constitution, despite the ridiculous and pathetic statements to the contrary made ad nausea by advocates for illegal aliens.

When you travel to other foreign countries, such as Japan, you are REQUIRED to keep your passport on you at all times in case a policeman or government official asks you to identify yourself. Every other country in the world REQUIRES you to identify yourself if you are a foreigner in that country--including Mexico.

Is there some LEGITIMATE reason why the people of the United States cannot expect that same level of security from its government to keep out trespassers and hooligans ?

I'm going to be the first one to shout like hell if they try to use this scenario to justify national ID cards, but I'm totally in favor of FOREIGN nationals being required to identify themselves to PROVE their legal status in this country. And I'm all for doing whatever it takes to kick out every single, last illegal alien walking around unfettered to do whatever he pleases in MY country.

Regards, Ken

Hi Ken,

You've made some good points. And as long as this law is only used against illegal aliens, and not to harass American Citizens, I'm all for it. Take care,
