Why are people opposed to the immigration law?

America. A great land composed solely of immigrants. Since the day she was discovered by immigrants, to the present day, we are all nothing but a bunch of immigrants. The Arizona Immigration Bill is quite possibly the most radically racist legislation since the segregation of the deep south. The bill states that immigrants must carry their alien (they’re people too…) registration documents at all times and requires police to question people if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the United States illegally. It also targets those who hire illegal immigrant laborers or knowingly transport them. This is completely unfair to anyone who is of Latino descent. The bill will force Latino U.S. citizens  to carry a passport with them at all times just because of the colour of their skin… sound familiar? Not to mention what would happen if we didn’t have immigrants stimulating our economy every day.

Although it may sound redundant, America, as beautiful as she is, would be nothing without our fellow immigrants. Our economy is dependent on immigrants to do the jobs that no one else wants to do, and for cheap. All the immigrants want is equal opportunity for their families. If only we could do something as noble and selfless as what these great people do, we, as a whole, would be a better nation.

    Ok, lacking a follow-up question. Also, don’t base your post on info from Wikipedia, I want you to use more primary and secondary sources. 8.5
