    Good to hear it. The sooner we stop all these illegals the better. They are wearing our social programs down. Many are criminals, only to commit a crime when they arrive.

    We are not criminals.
    And this is a law that affects even American citizens, lacking total constitutional support.
    Their power is to make you live in fear. It's unacceptable, unfair, and again, unconstitutional, and against basic universal human rights.
    I studied here, I will soon become a legal resident, and I've always entered this country legally. Why should I or anyone like me live in fear?

    I think this bill should be passed. I live in a suburb of Washington DC where many illeal immigrants. My family and I could even pass as immigrants even though we have 4 generations that have lived and still live in the United States. Both of my grandparents fought in WWII for freedom for all people who are legal citizens of the US who abide by our laws.

    I have no problem with immigrants. It's illegal alliens that concerns me. These illegal aliens, the ones currently residing in my neighborhood, can literally "get away with murder" bc there is no information on them.

    There's a border between security and the government taking away our freedoms. I feel that this is necessary to ensure of protection. What about the fear of walking down your own neighborhood street and knowing that someone could cause harm to you and potentially get away with it?

    I'm willing to carry identification for safety.

    I would like to share something that has been bothering me for a long time and it is relevant to the subject.
    I am Bulgarian and during the communist regime, all Bulgarian citizens were obliged to carry their passports and produce at official requests…
    However, for 20 years now (since my country overthrew the old regime) we are "enjoying" the "freedom" of carrying JUST an Identity Card, which is smaller (at least) than the passport.
    We regularly experience random traffic stops by police on the ground … honestly I don't know the "ground"… Very often our driving license is not enough to prove identity…!?!?!
    For 5 years Bulgaria has been a member of the European Union (supposedly democratic establishment). My great amazement is that in many other European countries such as France, Identity Cards are obligatory, excluding UK…
    I took the liberty and have shared this information with you, just to show you how dangerous is the road (all good intentions) of limiting freedoms for the sake of "some" personal securities.
    And finally I shall remind a quote of a great US man whose is quite inspirational to me:
    " I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." T. Jefferson

    Dear Mariana Antova,

    Truly well said !

    Indeed, it is ONLY when we know the burden of continuous fear in our own homes, of always having to look over our shoulders, that we learn what freedom REALLY is, anywhere.

    You Know.

    Because of where you're coming from, your own land.

    The true peoples of these "americas", the Indigenes who are the color of this earth, are DE -legitimized & criminalized today by the arbitrary & artificial "borders" drawn across the Land by the REAL illegal aliens from Europe who call themselves "americans" today …

    people who forget their OWN history …

    people who forget where they come from …

    Thank you from my heart for Remembering.

    You like so many individuals in this state need a brain and a common sense. I just wish that many like you get the opportunity and the benefit to obtain one in this life time.

    Also, what are you doing on this site? Can you read you are on the human rights site? Get off the Internet and get back to your Glee show.

    I do believe in human rights. Thats the reason i am in law school, to fight for those who cannot defend their own right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I dont have to believe that every "right" should be a right. I
    am entitled to my own opinion, as are you.

    You don't have to agree with me on this particular subject, but you should have at least factualy backed up your statement as to why I am in need of a brain. Apparently UVA believes I have one.

    And your ignorance on the topic is present in your mentioning of an irrelevant topic: Glee

    Dear Camille,

    We follow good ways we are taught, but in speech & act we hurt beings all around us, nonhuman, human.

    i know one day you will use your knowledge of the law to help the downtrod, the deprived.

    The only thing i know about law is that it is here only to serve the needs of the helpless.

    When law is used by the powerful, it serves to suppress those needs.

    It's those needs we need to keep in sight Camille , & if law obstructs our sight we must remove the obstruction.

    You speak of "these illegal aliens, the ones currently residing in my neighborhood who can literally 'get away with murder' bc there is no information on them."

    How can you "fight for those who cannot defend their own right",as you put it, if you see them & speak about them like this ?

    Your fear & loathing of them pours out through your speech.

    You suspect them all of being capable of crimes uncommitted but imagined.

    See the news every day for the ACTUAL crimes, not just in your street but throughout the land, the overwhelming majority of which are committed by legal citizens & the truly MONSTROUS among which are committed by the very people who pass laws they shouldn't while refusing to enact or implement those they ought to .. the laws URGENTLY needed today to regulate the powerful , the corporations, the governments that get away with transsocial & planetary mass murder.

    Like you, Camille, i too dream of fighting for the poor & the helpless, & I TOO often find them IMPOSSIBLE TO LOVE in real life.

    But we MUST love them.We must learn how to.That's why we're here on Earth.

    You're willing to carry identification in exchange for your "security" ? At no cost to you at all, but at what cost & DAILY humiliation to entire communties & peoples from all over the Americas ?

    One time, the great Naguib Mahfouz, the Egyptian writer, talked about security.

    He said security is never more unattainable than when it is pursued at any cost.
