The immigration law of the United States has been law for many years. Most of us are descendants of good people who saved their money and came to help build this country, and they did it honestly. They learned our language, studied our form of government, and made a pledge to support the constitution. No one is saying let’s be unfair or racist in any way. All we are saying is if you want to be here, become a citizen and support this country. Don’t expect to come here illegally and take advantage of all the wonderful benefits that legal immigrants have built. It is in no way discriminatory to ask that the immigration laws be kept. It doesn’t matter what race a person is, the law is the same. Let’s keep the law. 

I honor Gov. Brewer for standing up for what is right. We all should get behind her and do all in our power to see that our state’s rights are protected against infringement from the federal government. The federal government gets its authority from the states, not the other way around.  I for one stand with Jan Brewer in upholding the constitution of this country and this state.  The other states need to get into the wagon and make a commitment also. What is going on here will come to their borders very soon. They should be voting to authorize that their attorney generals join with Arizona and teach the federal government a lesson.

Michael Luck, Gilbert
