I think that is a little excessive and in need of greater definition.

***Note to self - Don't drive while brown in AZ***
If that does happens, just show the police officer your driver's license, maybe answer a couple of quick questions, and you'll be back on the road in a few minutes.

You don't think saying "we can pull anyone over we think is illegal" is a little excessive? Oh I am not worried about it, I avoid AZ because it seems that is becoming the theme there. I understand wanting to combat illegals...but I think that is profiling and the wrong way to go.

Sure maybe once...but how will the next officer 2 weeks later know? That's called "losing rights" to me, bad direction imo.

I'll just avoid AZ..which is hard because I went to ASU and Embry-Riddle in Prescott. It was bad then, I couldn't imagine it now.

He won't! He will just question the suspect as he was questioned before. If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to worry about. Since when do we have the right to not be questioned by law enforcement? Those who object use racial so-called profiling as an excuse to shelter illegal aliens.

Except being late to work.

Who do you think they will be pulling over?

(Why am I even arguing with you? Of course you will be for it without any second thought what-so-ever)

Tough, if I were getting a speeding ticket on the way to work (even though I might not think I deserved it) I would expect to be late for work.

If a white guy committed some kind of crime and LE were looking for him during the course of the investigation who do you think they would be questioning? Black females?

This is precisely the scenario macmeal has mentioned on numerous occasions. Sadly, it's the consequence of the failure of our government to enforce our laws. Illegal immigration is rampant, and states are feeling the financial burden; particularly, during our economic recession. It will only get worse.

If this bill passes; which is likely in this deep recession, if I were here illegally, I would be vamoosing from Arizona ASAP
