The obvious discussion is about brown Mexican and central american descended people. Don't play dumb.
Considering that most illegal aliens happen to be Spanish speaking Mestizos: common sense would be to profile that cohort before LE 'contacts' English speakers-----------of any race/ethnicity.

Actually: Benicar does have a 'brown' skintone I suspect; yet she is not one of the 'pets' of today's PC crowd.

That is correct. If everybody was able to sue for "false imprisonment" then law enforcement could not do its job.

I'm sure...because it doesn't further your agenda.

Pathetic. My father was right. Ignorance IS timeless.

This just proves we need a worker permit system for the aliens. Every alien will be on record with the place he works and can be easily checked. Canada has a worker permit system where each alien applys for the permit and goes to work. The alien then can be found if needed and he will pay taxes . NO ONE CAN HIRE AN ALIEN WHO DOESNT HAVE THE PERMIT.. a great system that works. Why cant we do this? I believe there is an agenda NOT to and the ones behind this agenda need to be caught and punished.

People are forgetting the case of Walker...an American fighting with the Taliban insurgents.

His appearance...beard and clothes made him appear like those captured.

It was only after identifying himself to a soldier as being an American that he was separated from the others.

So if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck chances are it is a duck.

I know people have heard that saying before but facts are facts.

ICE would laugh at you if you tried to use a state issued ID as proof of citizenship. Foreign nationals can get a driver's license in nearly every state.
It has to be original (not copy, not abstract of birth) birth certificate, passport, or immigration papers. I've been through that scenario before and fortunately had my passport on me at the time.

If I worked with a bunch of Illegal Aliens I would have one of the above with me at all times. Thankfully I don't so my State issued DL works just fine even going through check points each day.
