Before I am called a racist, let me state this. I have zero problem with ANY person of ANY race coming into this country through legal means. My grandparents did, were proud to be Americans, and never called any other country but America as their home after arrival. They worked very hard to be citizens, and you SHOULD have to WORK to become a Citizen, not have it handed to you like getting a Visa debit card. Our borders and laws are to be honored, not looked on as an "inconvenience".

I find it rather dispicable, cowardly, and brazenly un-American to boycott another state and its citizens, for doing what THEY wish to do in their borders to protect and uphold the law. The repeated rhetoric from organizations like LULAC calling it racist is blind to the problem illegal immigrants pose and cost. Almost no one in the Latino community bear the cost of illegals, hence their willingness to spend the tax dollars of those who do in order to support illegal aliens continued intrusion.
