A sampling of news stories and commentary related to illegal immigrants and illegal immigration:

  • Arizona’s Attorney General, Terry Goddard, says he believes the state can win any legal challenge the Obama administration might bring about to block its new anti-illegal immigration law SB 1070.  h/t:  Twitter user @ArizonaNewsnet
  • The White House is showing where its allegiance lies in the illegal immigration debate by opening a hotline for illegals to make sure they get paid “fairly.”   This is the same administration that is going to sue Arizona for wanting to enforce immigration law.  Illegals may be taken advantage of by employers breaking the law and hiring them, but if they weren’t here in the first place they wouldn’t have that problem, would they?
  • The people caught crossing the border illegally into the U.S. are from numerous other countries besides Mexico.  Recent news reports that people from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Pakistan, and Lebanon are being held by the Department of Homeland Security after caught trying to cross the border illegally.
  • The Mexican consulate in Yuma, AZ is warning would be illegal immigrants of the dangers of trying to cross the desert border illegally in the summer.
