    the issue or at least the root of it.   Mexicans  who crossed into the US without documentation are the reason the law was passed.    They chose to ignore our laws,  and now instead of existing laws being enforced by the Feds, we have a new shitty law.    Both problems have to be addressed.

      about why I think the law was passed.

      We have plenty of laws already in place to prevent undocumented immigrants from working and staying here. This law was passed as a mean-spirited rallying point. And you're right, we need to enforce the laws that exist. I just don't think that citizens or documented immigrants who happen to be brown deserve to be harassed by law enforcement, or worse, by their neighbors who report them to law enforcement because they want to cause problems.
