Illegal aliens do not have rights

I applaud Arizona for taking the bull by the horns and passing a bill that permits them to enforce our federal immigration laws. And, shame on Mexico for condemning Arizona. It’s my understanding that Mexico’s laws in regard to illegal immigrants are incredibly strict. Hey, maybe that’s what we need here in America. We need to adopt the same immigration law as Mexico:

You enter the USA illegally and get caught, you are charged with a felony punishable by two years in prison for your first offense! Period, end of story.

I am sick and tired of Washington, D.C., bending over backwards for illegals, I don’t care where they are from. This is not a racist statement. It’s the law. You enter our country illegally, you have no rights!
