Watching the news here. I have noticed a very large amount of Illegals are trying and actually filling to become citizens of the the United States of America.
Though I have yet to see these articles or news from other areas report on this. There is a major improvement in the attitudes and those who actually want to stay here and work.
This is part of the Good News as the Federal Government uses our tax payer money to try to sue Arizona for not doing their own job. We here in Arizona see a major positive note coming from all this.
There are High amounts like never before since the law past this month. Coming in and filing for citizenship. One of the hardest issues coming up out of this, is that a lot of them cannot afford citizenship.
As I sat there watching the waves of people filling. It really got me to thinking.
They may not be able to afford it. But, We as Americans know about payment plans.
Since they are already working here. Why not just set up a payment plan for them to be able to continue to stay.
It's not the fact that Arizona is trying to be racist. It's the fact that they are trying to stop all the criminals, and protect our own citizens.
The fact remains. The Law is working. The people are now trying to become legal.
So for all those that don't read the law and try to fight.. Take some time and read it for a change.
I will add more on this as it comes up.
4 Illegal Immigrants Nabbed at Border for FraudUpdated: Monday, 12 Jul 2010, 6:57 AM MDT

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents said Saturday that the four unrelated incidents all occurred last week.
One 49-year-old man from Sonora claimed to be a U.S. citizen, but agents found he was actually an aggravated felon with an extensive criminal history for dangerous drugs. A 25-year-old man from Sinaloa also trying to enter the U.S. had an extensive criminal history related to human smuggling.
A 51-year-old woman from Chihuahua who had obtained a valid document to visit the U.S. admitted to agents that she had been living and working illegally in the U.S. for a decade, and a 31-year-old man from Michoacan also was found to be living in the U.S. illegally and had several serious immigration violations.
The woman was sent back to Mexico; the other three were taken before a federal magistrate.
PHOENIX - There are an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States. Some people say we should round them up and deport them, others say we should let them stay and earn citizenship. But there's a new idea -- make them permanent guest workers.
Guest workers would be able to stay in America permanently, live and work here, but wouldn't vote or have other rights that American citizens have.
It could be some status if people are here illegally pay a fine they pay taxes have some ability to travel back and forth but something that would fall short of citizenship," he suggests.
Guest workers would take amnesty for illegal immigrants off the table, which many people oppose.
Is there room for a compromise here? Critics say one man's permanent guest worker is another man's second class citizen.
