Arizona Lawmakers Display Great Understanding of Government

As revealed in this story:

"PHOENIX — Arizona lawmakers are proposing a sweeping package of immigration restrictions that might make the controversial measures the state approved last year, which the Obama administration went to court to block, look mild.
Illegal immigrants would be barred from driving in the state, enrolling in school or receiving most public benefits. Their children would receive special birth certificates that would make clear that the state does not consider them Arizona citizens."

I'm just going to ignore the fifty or sixty thousanth example of Republican racism and viciousness.  I'm so sick of talking about it.  What I want to point out here is something that most of us learned in fourth grade or so:  People are citizens of the United States.  They are not "citizens" of states, they are residents.  These ignorant jerks don't know the first thing about our laws, and could care less, but they spout their opinions of the constitution and "states' rights" like they are Harvard professors.

They'd be pathetic and laughable if they weren't so filled with hate and greed.
