    yeah, it just seems like an underhanded way to make racial profiling of brown people legal... It disgusts me that people who look a certain way would have to carry identification to prove that they deserve to be here at all times for fear of detainment- even if they are American... or if they aren't even hispanic

    carry identification so that we don't detain you... phrases like that just don't sit well with me...

    exactly!

    what next? get all hispanic people to wear a symbol?

    starting down that path is always a bad idea...

    Yeah, what if you forget it when you go to the grocery store? They can arrest you on the spot until proven legal. Also, even if it isn't in official use yet, there are already arrests. Arpaio says it's been passed so the police might as well start now. You can't make this kind of crazy stuff up.

    It's a dry fascism, but it's still fascism.

    does Hitler have a family? I'd read somewhere that he would have been a good case for Viagra

    the scary thing is... if it can pass there where else will it spread?

    I live in a conservative state, that has a history of racism, with a growing Hispanic population... especially in the urban areas where unemployment is high. The fact that it can pass in Arizona makes me nervous

    I'm not being sarcastic here. I am seriously like WTF.

    Mexican president condemns Arizona immigrant law - Yahoo! News

    I think this defies all logic. It is truly bizarre. I am a white resident of the United States and I can't even visit Canada for a few days without a passport and standing in immigration for an hour. I am sick and fucking tired of people playing the race card on this issue as if there's not other problems with illegal immigration.
    Mexico is a warzone, carved up by the drug cartels.



    If some of them move north, which they are, it is one less thing to keep the Mexican president up at night. Pass off the problem.

    No, just sombreros.

    ...Kidding.

    Anyway, aren't U.S. citizens well within their rights to refuse to show identification? Oh it's okay. You know I'm American because I can refuse to show you my papers lolz. Why did nobody see this loophole?
