The ACLU can hassle one or two states with dumb litigation. But lets see them try to sue when forty five of the states in the U.S. pass common sense laws like this.

Laws like these have the big potential of being misused.
Let’s not forget that this is a country of immigrants.
When the first “pioneers” came here, they were essentially illegal immigrants.

So, folks, let’s go easy on this!

In the 24 years, since the 1986 Reagan, one-time amnesty,
http://n.pr/9IMtLO
over 28 million illegals were apprehended
after they crossed our border.

Over 100 million illegals weren’t apprehended

Before the recent addition (over the last 3 years) of:
10,000 Border Patrol agents,
313.9 miles of Pedestrian Fence,
32 miles of the legislated double-layered fence,
and 298.5 miles of Vehicle Barriers,
it was estimated, by the border patrol agents,
that less than 1, out of 7, illegals, were apprehended at the border.
Some agents even said less than 1, out of 10, were apprehended.

Now, the Border Patrol thinks they apprehend somewhere between
1, out of 3 and, 1 out of 5. but nobody really knows..

However, we do know that the reported 11.2 million illegals in our
United States is a lie being told, over, and over again, to all Americans

30 million illegals, in our United States, is much more likely

Its a shame when the president gives orders not to stop illegals crossing our boaders, esp. when terroist, cartels operate freely, and we are at war .

Do I look illegal? No. Do my half-Mexican daughters look illegal? Perhaps to some… Is it now a crime to be light-brown in this state? Should I take my family somewhere we won’t feel subject to discrimination and racial profiling? I’m seriously considering it. Do people here in Alabama really want to lose $2.6 Billion in economic activity. Well, I know that the hatred of racism can be a powerful thing. Blinding people to the point of stupidity.

The solution is to charge admission and stop putting money into the hands of organized crime. The more we spend trying to keep people out. The more money organized crime makes smuggling people across. Immigration is good for the economy. Anti-immigrants are either misinformed or racists pure and simple.
