What really pisses me off about this is that these ladies, while ONLY speaking mostly Spanish, they were asked for ID as they had a state issued food stamps card. They produced Honduran passports, but not green cards...Honduran nationals evidently can get food stamps but not Americans citizens. (We had applied when both my wife and I were unemployed, but were told we "made too much" ON UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS!!!!).
The only way to get cities, counties and now states to enforce federal immigration statutes at this point will be to threaten (or better yet, follow through) and terminate any federal funds to a city, county or state that doesn't enforce those statutes. Additionally, we need to pull the business licenses of any company that hires illegal aliens. Those two "sticks" would be enough to eliminate the incentive to hire illegal aliens, much less provide them "sanctuaries".
