I am all for second chances. I’m all for better opportunities. I’m all for restarting your life. I’m also for this country being a land full of migrants who come to the U.S. to become citizens who pay taxes and help better our country. I truly believe this is the greatest country on earth and I want others to be able to experience the chances and life that I have as a citizen.

A new law just passed in Arizona that will give law enforcement the ability to arrest and detain illegal immigrants. Arizona currently has 460,000 immigrants – that’s a stack of taxes that the state and country are not collecting. If an American doesn’t pay their taxes, they go to jail – why shouldn’t illegal immigrants be treated the same?

I’ve just seen the reports on this from the surface, but if well over half of the state is in favor of this bill, why would President Obama and many others be calling this bill irresponsible?

Educate me here.
