Supreme Court to Review Ariz. Immigration Law

December 13, 2011  | 

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Arizona's immigration law, Senate Bill 1070. Its ruling could impact immigration laws nationwide and push the immigration debate into the spotlight during the final months of the 2012 presidential race.

Why is it I must carry my state issued I.D. with me when I operate a motor vehicle, cash a check, get employed, fly on an airline or file my income tax paperwork, both State & Federal, but it is OK for someone who entered this country illegally, is using a stolen SSN with a fake name, not to be required to do so also? Illegals cost my state millions in medical care, housing & educational dollars. If being in this country illegally wasn't enough, they use fake Drivers Licenses and other FEDERAL IDs' to get help with their rent & food. Guess who pays for that? I can't count the number of LEOs killed or maimed by these law breakers in Arizona alone. Makes me sick.
