Rather odd that it should be considered racist for a state to pass a law identical to federal law, in essence confirming that illegal immigrants are - er - illegal. As to why Arizona has taken this initiative, the following information comes from FBI and Department of Homeland Security reports:
- 83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix, AZ, are for illegal aliens.
- 86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque, AZ, are for illegal aliens.
There's lots more, but those two will do. Just thought I'd mention it, given that as usual the Brit press is echoing the limousine leftist New York Times.
