I am currently a United States citizen and have lived in Arizona my whole life. As illegal’s flood into Arizona, many rules, amendments, and regulations have been questioned and threatened. Not only are state leaders wanting to change the regulations of Arizona, they want to change the original 14th amendment, ratified on July 9, 1868. Our founding fathers wrote this national document to classify the United States as an honorable, prideful, and respectable free country. Why would we want to change that? The 14th amendment states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subjected to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” Therefore we cannot take away a person’s citizenship based on their parent’s home country. A child born from two illegal aliens should still have the same rights and citizenship as any other normal American family. The rights of the 14th amendment declare, “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the Unites States,” therefore, the urge to change original amendment would be unconstitutional and against everything the United States prides itself upon—the free nation.
In May 2011, Senate President Russell Pearce explained why he thinks the hardships Arizona faces from illegal immigration should allow the state to start enforcing SB 1070, the state's immigration law approved in 2010, but placed on hold by a federal judge. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Arizona can require police to check the immigration status of those they stop, one of the more controversial provisions of SB 1070.

Rep. Russell Pearce: The Tribune again ignores the facts. Our citizens deserve better! The Tribune’s June 17 editorial talks about finding Mesa Police Chief George Gascón’s replacement, someone who can “dispel the myth that Mesa is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.” But it is not a myth!

Illegal immigrants an Army reservist held at gunpoint were freed late Wednesday — and the people who freed them vow to prove that the soldier should be the one in jail.
I read the Tribune editorial that stated SB 1070 is a “divisive” law that has polarized our great nation. I suggest that this paper and all the other media who feel this way should advocate for the repeal of Section 1325 of Title 8 of the United States Code.
A federal judge in Phoenix has dismissed another challenge to Arizona's new immigration law.
DENVER — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says Arizona's law to get tough on immigration is the wrong way to get local police involved in enforcement.
Napolitano says she agrees with a district court ruling that blocked some of the most controversial parts of the law in July and that "we cannot have 50 different immigration enforcement teams across the country." Arizona is appealing the judge's ruling.
Napolitano, the former governor of Arizona, said in a Denver speech Thursday that there are better ways to involve local law enforcement in fighting illegal immigration, including the federal Secure Communities program that has been implemented in several hundred jurisdictions nationwide.
Immigrant advocates across the country have criticized the fingerprint-sharing program as too broad.
The immigration law of the United States has been law for many years. Most of us are descendants of good people who saved their money and came to help build this country, and they did it honestly. They learned our language, studied our form of government, and made a pledge to support the constitution. No one is saying let’s be unfair or racist in any way. All we are saying is if you want to be here, become a citizen and support this country. Don’t expect to come here illegally and take advantage of all the wonderful benefits that legal immigrants have built. It is in no way discriminatory to ask that the immigration laws be kept. It doesn’t matter what race a person is, the law is the same. Let’s keep the law.
