I agree with Arizona's new policy. What part of illegal don't people understand? If you want to live here, you need to come and apply the right way. Illegals do not pay taxes; they send their pay to where they came from. We the taxpayers are picking up the tab for them, such as their hospital bills. As for them doing the jobs others don't want to do, it is because some people are just too lazy to work. Gerald Yamin, Pikesville Event.observe(window, 'load', function()

Maryland-based EMG merged this month with an Arizona firm, a move that adds project management services to the Hunt Valley engineering, environmental and capital planning company's capabilities. The deal with Arizona-based Quality Project Management also expands EMG's geographic reach. Together the companies have about 450 employees in 37 states, of which about 350 were part of EMG prior to the merger. "The transaction's synergies enable us to serve our clients at every stage of the real estate lifecycle, from the acquisition of portfolios and asset management to planned capital improvements and the disposition of properties," EMG CEO Claude N. Limoges said.

One has to feel very sorry for the people of Arizona. As the Sun reports ("Split decision," June 26), the Supreme Court ruled the federal government has to sole power to enforce laws against illegal immigration. The question naturally follows "What if there are no laws?" Article IV, Section 4, of the Constitution reads, "The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion. " The people of Arizona and their lands have been and are being subjected to an invasion by people from Mexico, yet they are rendered powerless by the Supreme Court to defend themselves.

The Arizona Fall League rosters were announced Tuesday, and seven Orioles minor leaguers will represent the organization with the Glendale Desert Dogs this season. Three right-handed pitchers -- Parker Bridwell, Zach Davies and Mychal Givens -- and one left-hander -- Ashur Tolliver -- will head from the Orioles organization to Glendale, as well as three position players -- outfielder Dariel Alvarez, catcher Michael Ohlman and infielder Jason Esposito. Triple-A Norfolk pitching coach Mike Griffin also will join Glendale as the co-pitching coach, and short-season Single-A Aberdeen's Chris Poole will serve as the team's athletic trainer.

Congratulations and kudos to the lawmakers and the state of Arizona who passed a new and much needed bill to curb illegal immigration. If the federal government cannot and will not do its duty on immigration, then states must take up this worthwhile cause and introduce legislation on illegal immigration. Arizona's new immigration law definitely could and should have a place in other many other states that have huge illegal immigration problems. The Arizona law allows police to investigate the immigration status of people they suspect lack permission to live in the United States.

There is national agreement that the United States has a serious problem with illegal immigration. There is also national agreement that "something" should be done about it. Why, then, instead of the Obama administration, immigrant-advocacy groups and Congress trying to demonize Arizona for its new illegal-immigration law, don't they press for serious enforcement of existing federal laws on the subject and present a viable means by which...

Just when I think nothing else outrageous can be done in the name of religious freedom, along comes the Arizona bill allowing business owners the legal right to refuse service to gays and others on the basis of said freedom. That Gov. Jan Brewer publicly announced her veto of the legislation on television shows her concern over the national fallout ( "Boycott Arizona," Feb. 27). But the fact remains that it was approved by the Republican-dominated legislature and did reach the governor's desk and that is the scary part of this issue.

I resent the time and effort being wasted by our local lawmakers and now our governor over the proposed Arizona immigration law. Your editorial ("Issue migrates from Arizona," July 13) fails to clarify the difference between immigration and illegal immigration. Arizona's law only relates to those in the country illegally. When the federal government won't do its job, and a situation becomes so bad, local authorities have to act. In May, the Baltimore City Council passed a resolution opposing Arizona's proposed law, and some council members wore buttons created specifically for the occasion.

State Rep. Pat McDonough stated in The Baltimore Sun ("Arizona's admirable law," July 18) that the Arizona immigration law is "nothing more" than a restatement of federal law. Of course, he is aware that the federal government has jurisdiction over areas that the states don't, and vice versa. And, of course, he fails to mention that inconvenient little sticking point. Knowing that, why would he intend to introduce such a law in the upcoming session, knowing that the Arizona law is being challenged?

With the Supreme Court taking up Arizona's "show me your papers" immigration law, we're once again thrust into a useful debate over the role of the government and the obligations of the citizen -- and non-citizen. Rather than come at it from the usual angle, I thought I'd try something different. If there were one thing I could impress upon people about the nature of the state, it's that governments by their very nature want to make their citizens "legible. " I borrow that word from James C. Scott, whose book "Seeing Like a State" left a lasting impression on me. Mr. Scott studied why the state has always seen "people who move around" to be the enemy.

Traffic camera giant Redflex has been lobbying the Rawlings-Blake administration and City Council to take over Baltimore's once-lucrative speed and red-light camera network - stressing that it should not be judged by an unfolding scandal in Chicago in which a former executive is charged with bribery. The Arizona-based firm ran Chicago's red-light cameras for a decade, generating $500 million in revenue, but lost the work last year amid city and federal investigations. Officials in Baltimore said Thursday that the company, which was once a finalist to run this city's system, has used the recent talks to distance itself from the Chicago indictments.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a classmate of Charles R. Larson at the U.S. Naval Academy, says the four-star admiral and former academy superintendent was a "dear friend" and "great man" who, like McCain's father and grandfather, cast a large shadow. Admiral Larson, 77, died early Saturday at his home in Annapolis after a long illness. "As the son and grandson of four-star admirals, I have long been accustomed to living in the large shadows cast by great men," McCain said in a statement Sunday afternoon.

A major speed and red light camera company is lobbying city government to take over the city's once-lucrative traffic camera system, records show. Throughout 2013, Arizona-based speed camera firm American Traffic Solutions Inc. spent $25,000 lobbying city government in hopes of winning a new traffic camera contract after the city shut the system down in April amid accuracy concerns. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has said she intends to restart the system, which was once North America's largest, this year.

On NBC's “Meet the Press” today, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake invited gay and lesbian residents of Arizona to move to Baltimore. Asked about vetoed legislation that would have allowed businesses in Arizona to refuse to provide service to gay and lesbian residents, Rawlings-Blake said it “burns [her] up” that people still face discrimination in 2014. She acknowledged the western state likely has better weather than Baltimore, but said the city has a more welcoming attitude toward homosexual residents.

The Orioles were in the race for free-agent starter Bronson Arroyo, one of their top offseason targets, until the very end, but ultimately saw the right-hander agree to a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $23.5 million with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.  Arroyo will make $9.5 million in each of the next two seasons, and Arizona has an $11 million club option for 2016 or can buy him out for $4.5 million, ESPN reported. Arroyo selected the Diamondbacks over the Orioles, according to an industry source who added that the Orioles' final offer was “competitive.” Ultimately, Arroyo wanted to stay in the National League, the source said.

Let courts do work Bill Kline The Morning Call Let's get this straight. The people of Arizona elect their legislators and their governor and they in turn establish a law — for Arizona only — that enforces something that already is illegal. And now others across this nation are calling for Major League Baseball to bigfoot the people of Arizona by pulling the 2011 All-Star Game out of Phoenix. What's next? Should baseball pull the Twins out of Minnesota because the Mall of America emits too much carbon dioxide?

President Barack Obama promised a lot when he was a candidate. The big thing was "hope and change. " We have received none of that, and, in fact, we have received an administration that is contravening the law and Supreme Court with it's response to the opinion on the Arizona illegal immigration law. He is abrogating the federal government's agreement with Arizona to support the local police and creating a hotline for illegals to complain. For a so-called constitutional lawyer to snub his nose at the Supreme Court, we as a nation are in big trouble going forward especially if he gets re-elected.

Defensive back Jalen Tabor 's decision to commit to Arizona , consummated Thursday with the donning of a Wildcats cap and the signaling of "Bear Down" at the Under Armour All-America Game, was a somewhat surprising marriage. Not because Alabama had been spurned, mind you, but because the surprise hat in play was Arizona's, not Maryland's. From the very start of his blink-and-you'll-miss-a-tweet recruitment, it was always accepted as fact that Tabor would end up somewhere like Tropicana Field, flanked by the nation's elite, cameras trained on him as he announced on national television his postgraduate plans.
