The theme of the conference was "What in the world are you fools doing out there? Why should we sink millions of dollars into a place that's more concerned about illegal aliens than the economy?" These folks were Wall Street-types rather than namby-pamby liberals.
I meant to say ... those Wall Street-types have been so successful in their concern for the economy. Why listen to some backasswards hicks from the country that believe in the rule of law?
This backasswards hick would love more money being invested in this state.
What about Americans of Hispanic descent who are forced to prove that they are NOT illegal aliens? Why would Hispanic Americans want to move here? Visit here? Stay here? I don't know if anyone else realizes just how much worse our state's economy will become if this law is implemented.
Think about how clogged our state's court systems will become if every Hispanic American who's pulled over for speeding is asked to provide proof of citizenship, and they don't have it, so they have to go to court.
