Look who's talking

Undocumented immigrants and activists say they are concerned and angry about the possibility that Florida will enact an Arizona-style immigration-control law.

. . . Julio Salgado, an undocumented immigrant worker from Nicaragua, has been questioned by the police in the past after business owners called authorities to complain about the presence of day laborers. But Salgado says that until recently none of the police officers had asked him for immigration papers.

Now Salgado is worried that they may start asking him for papers if the Florida Legislature adopts an immigration-control law similar to the one Arizona lawmakers passed earlier this year.

Say what you will about Arizona-style immigration laws - - can we at least all agree that illegal aliens don't get a say on the laws we citizens enact in our own country?
