How exactly do you intend this scanner idea to work? A code on the back of the Social Security card or some kind of implant. Either way I don't think it would work out that well. Especially if it was an implant. To many Biblical implications for that to ever fly. But you are absolutely right as far as your post goes. We have been invaded and with our government's blessing. If we go out and start trying to arrest them, we will just end up in trouble ourselves because the powers that be don't want them to go. They are price and wage control. Plain and simple. The rich love them and the rich run this country. That is why it so often seems like the law is on their side instead of ours. Because they are.

If the Police don't have a reliable means of determining the citizenship or immigration status of an individual, I don't see how an individual interested in doing an immigration/citizenship check on a 'suspect' is going to do it.

With that said, if anyone walked up to me and asked me if I was a citizen, I'd ask him to prove his first. Then, after he proves his, I'd ask for a copy so I could prove its authenticity. Or maybe I'd simply tell him he is brave because with all the identity theft out there, he is taking a significant risk carrying such important documents on his person.

I wonder where the citizen's arrest would occur. At a business location such as a supermarket or Disneyland? Would a private entity such as those allow such activity on their premises?

Maybe it could happen out on the street. Would there be checkpoints set up by individuals? Maybe they could do it at freeway offramps. You know, kind of like the guy who walks back and forth trying to sell oranges, in the meantime there could be a guy going back and forth pointing at drivers saying, "Citizen? Legal?"

Maybe it could happen in our neighborhoods where, like Jehovah's Witnesses, you get a knock on the door. Can I ignore the door?

Citizen arrests? I have a better idea - how about our government do it's job.

The majority of illegals in our country happens to be from SOB and happen to be Mestizo. Racial profiling or color profiling makes perfect sense. they should add anyone that happens to be Asian along with that profiling.

Citizen arrests? Uh, yeah.... After a few false arrests, mistaken identities, and a lot of aimless confusion, the whole dog and pony show will end. Racial profiling? If anyone walks up to me demanding to know my citizenship/immigration status, I will laugh in his face...

You might want to think clearly about your suggestion, I doubt if the government would appreciate it. Remember how they dealt with Ruby Ridge? I would be surprised if they would want a bunch of vigilantes running around with guns.

Opening a can of worms...You get it wrong and citizen arrest another American then you have just committed a felony yourself. False imprisonment or even kidnapping...plus add the lawsuit that would surely come along with such an act.

Terrible idea. Imagine the danger Americans would put themselves in trying to citizen's arrest people, as well as the danger to illegal immigrants from unsupervised and untrained vigilantes?

Putting the misguided ambitions of the "Minutemen" aside, at least they have their tactics right. They merely act as spotters who radio authorities when they spot a person crossing the border.

I think this is the only solution to this problem. The government is bought and paid for by corporations who just love illegal immigrants since it works in their favor of supply and demand, but against the citizens. I whole heartedly support this idea, which is why I googled it and found this page.
