Many states gave illegals licenses so there is a database

If someone gets arrested for an offense and can't prove they are a citizen well then they might sit in jail a while.
So you re against following the law? There is no requirement ever that a US citizen prove it.

Yep put 50,000 troops on the border. 12 hour shifts 4 year duty. Supplement the border patrol. Lock it down.

BS. If ONE Illegal Alien commits a crime of any kind, then that one more to add to the crime rate that never should have happened. And we all KNOW they do commit crimes and so do you.

Oh really..why are you arresting illegals? It's pretty darned unusual for a city cop to have the time to hunt down "illegals", I don't buy it.

Only for the crime. You cannot legally hold a US citizen until he proves it. It does happen but it is blatantly illegal. Normally ICE does it. Not local cops.

So you believe one can pick and choose which Laws they want to live by? Its against the Law to be an Illegal Alien. Guess that Law means nothing to you? Police check people they stop for any reason now, for open warrants and do so every day, so there is little difference for checking legal status, since its also a crime to be an illegal alien. Your double standard snake oil your trying to sell won't work.

Local police cannot detain you for the purposes of determining your citizenship unless they are deputized under the 287g program. Arizona tried that and the courts threw it out.

That statement causes me question your claim that you are a Police Officer, that's patently false. You cannot detain them beyond the time it takes for the primary reason for the stop, look it up yourself if you don't believe me
