The state of the immigration debate

In the wake of Arizona's SB1070 becoming a law, South Carolina's Lt. Governor André Bauer gave his take on Latino immigration to the U.S.:

"The problem is we have a give-away system in this country and in this state that is so strong that people would rather sit home and do nothing than do these jobs. Laziness is not a disability," Bauer said. "There are lot of people that are flat out lazy and they are using up the goods and services that we have in this state."

"This is not an agenda of racism, however. Though Mexican nationals are by far the largest problem, this is an issue that goes beyond that. If so many thousands of people can cross our borders illegally, what else do you think can come across undetected? Drugs, criminals, violence...these are all known products of our lax southern border security, but I'd like to point out that the only reason that our northern border with Canada is slightly tighter is that the Canadians share a slightly similar concern for national security, and unlike us, have acted upon it...not to mention that Canada is an equally prosperous nation with citizens who have less of a need to run to the U.S. But the lapses in U.S. security at the Canadian border are just as much of an invitation for illegal weapons, drugs, and international criminals as the ones at our southern border are. Again, we have borders and border security for a reason, and it's not just so we can protect only one of our borders from a certain race of people. That notion, often pointed out and criticised by immigration proponents, is ridiculous. Nobody truly believes that, not even the most extreme of Conservatives. It's not just about "them damn Mexicans getting into Arizona". It's about knowing what and who comes into our country and having some kind of control over it for the sake of our people."
