I was going to post this in the other thread on the same subject but after a quick glance in there is appears to have degenerated into a flame war. http://travel.ca.msn.com/canadianpress-article.aspx?cp-documentid=24046319 I did not fully grasp the magnitude or importance of this law until I read this statement from the Mexican government. It says that the law's passage shows "an adverse political atmosphere for migrant communities and for all Mexican visitors." "it should be assumed that any Mexican citizen could be bothered and questioned for no other reason at any moment." Was this Arizona's intention? Keep out all immigrants, specifically Mexicans, through intimidation and fear?
