It is a matter of the frustration and desperation felt, and an ugly response by Arizona to the people's legitimate needs. The federal authorities need to correct the problems and control the boder. I, myself, favor quick, easy, cheap regularization, but you cannot pretend that the problem is not a legitimate concern. The Arizona law should pass constitutional muster, since it is only a backup on law that is already a federal crime, nothing new.
