I support Arizona and Brewer

I'm hopeful that maybe somewhere, someday soon here in California, a legislator, a representative or a judge will show the same intestinal fortitude as Gov. Jan Brewer, of Arizona.

Even with threats of lawsuits by labor unions, MEChA, La Raza, ACLU, various city councils and less-than-peaceful rallies by protesters carrying signs mainly in, drum roll, español.

Yes, many people say the majority of the illegal immigrants come from the south. If you think about it, it is logistically and geographically easier to enter via an unprotected U.S. border versus the Atlantic or Pacific oceans.

The government needs to have a system of tracking expired visas of visitors flying in to the U.S.

Yes, another source of illegal immigrants: those overstaying their visa who came from the north, the south, Europe and Asia.

Another issue that must be addressed is tracking who gets government benefits, and the need to provide proof of legal status when applying for aid, subsidized housing or welfare benefits.

Taxpayers are being bilked by people breaking the law and literally stealing from taxpayer funds. Dangle the carrot of benefits, housing and good medical care, and they'll come to America in droves.

A third issue: Employers need to be fined for hiring illegal immigrants. Stop providing jobs and illegal immigrants will not come to the U.S.

In 1986, it was estimated that 1.5 million illegal immigrants were in the U.S. Amnesty was created and was supposed to be the end of illegal immigration.

I am speaking about illegal immigration, not legal immigration. In 2010, there's estimates of 15 million to 30 million illegal immigrants in the U.S.

When I asked Meg Whitman about this, she said: What are you going to do, send them all back? Split up families?

Actually, we are not splitting up families. It's the parents who should be taking their children back to their home country, and U.S.-born children (anchor babies) can always return to U.S. at 18 years old as adult U.S. citizens.

Yes, it took a female governor to have balls of steel, tough enough to address the issue of illegal immigration.

As the U.S.-born child of legal adult immigrants to the U.S., I support Gov. Brewer.

Illegal immigration is not equivalent to legal immigration.
