The Arizona law is moving in the wrong direction. Local law enforcement must have the trust of everyone in their community. illegal immigrants will no longer cooperate with or report crimes to law enforcement in that state. This will only create more problems. Illegal immigration is a problem that can only be solved at a national level.

With that said, illegal immigration is just that, illegal. If we decide to give amnesty to anyone who is in this country illegally then why not give amnesty to all bank robbers who stole money do to economic reasons. A law is a law and if we start picking and choosing which laws we are going to enforce then why have a justice system at all? We also need to shut down those businesses that hire illegal immigrants and fine or jail the owners. We do not need another Reagan amnesty program that keeps corporate America happy while opening the boarders to a new wave of illegal immigration so we can do it again in another 20 years. We need real reform, not like the disastrous health care reform but real reform that close our boarders and doesn't reward law breakers.
