… the suggestion that illegal immigrants in Arizona are invading Americans’ property, straining their social services, and even placing their lives in jeopardy is sufficiently inflammatory to call for a citation to some reputable source of such hyperbole
….As of last year there were estimated to be 360,000 illegal immigrants in Arizona, which is less than 6 percent of the Arizona population—below the estimated average illegal immigrant population of the United States. Maybe Arizona’s illegal immigrants are more violent, less respectful of property, worse spongers off social services, and otherwise more obnoxious than the illegal immigrants in other states, but one would like to see some evidence of that."

I can’t believe that anyone who claims a population that is less than 6% of the total population for an area is the cause for financial strain…to a degree that it’d be ok to demand to see
illegals refugees (think about it for a second) immigration papers.
Anyone who supports the Arizona law is goofy as shit.
