Arizona is at it again!

Arizona's most recent controversial law permits law enforcement to demand proof of immigration status of anyone that appears to not be from the US. Now, they are after the innocent children!

Arizona is more than likely introducing new legislation that denies US birth certificates to children born in Arizona to parents who do not have valid immigration status. The idea behind this proposed law is to prevent these US born children from assisting his or her parent in applying for lawful permanent residence in the US...which he or she cannot do for 21 years! Per already existing immigration laws, these children will not be able to sponsor a parent for an immigration benefit until he or she turns 21 years old.

Does Arizona truly believe harming these innocent children is fair?

I hope the hospitals in Arizona's neighboring States are ready for a busier maternity ward!
