It should be no surprise to anyone that this eventually happened. One of the states bordering Mexico finally decided to step up and make a crazy law that’s outraged half the country.
Legitimately, it’s a difficult debate. Because this law passed, which essentially gives law enforcement officials the right to stop anyone “suspected” of being an illegal immigrant, and by suspected I mean, “looks Mexican,” – and they must present their official papers proving they are a U.S. Citizen.
This begs the question how many times will actual citizens, who happen to be Latin Americans, be pulled over or stopped on the street, because of their race?
I completely understand the negative impact illegal immigration has on our country; however, there is a real economic impact. These people are taking the jobs no one wants, the jobs that have to be done and what happens when you remove them?
The Federal government should really move on trying to create a “Legal Path to Citizenship” in order to continue to move forward in this immigration issue. Trying to invest time and resources into removing them I’m sure is unbelievably costly. So, what’s the advantage to deporting every one you see?
