IMMOKALEE, Fla. - The Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona says the new immigration law won't lead to racial profiling. But, one local woman is concerned that may not be true.
Mary Gonzalez is a U.S. citizen and doesn't like the law.
"It's discrimination anyway you look at it and last I knew, the United States did not tolerate discrimination," says Gonzalez.
She's worried about her children who were fathered by an illegal immigrant.
"Who's to say the next victim isn't gonna be my daughter or my son cause their father is from Mexico," says Gonzalez.
But, as much as Gonzalez doesn't like the Arizona law, she does believe there needs to be immigration reform.
"If legalization was made easier than it is they would gladly apply for their papers," says Gonzalez.
Many illegal immigrants we spoke with agree.
"We are here illegal yes, but its not fair, we work," says one man who wished to remain anonymous.
"It makes us nervous," says another man who also wanted to remain anonymous.
Gonzalez is now working to organize a rally in Immokalee about the law.
