A-hem...

But the scene these protestors are setting up is dangerous. They're painting a scene of anybody, but mostly hispanics, getting hunted down and jailed solely based on their nationality. But what they've failed to read is that the law specifically bans picking up a person just because they're of a particular race. What does this mean? Well, for the liberals who prefer to ignore the facts, this means that it doesn't matter if you're white, black, Asian or Jewish - any person, no matter the nationality, will have to provide proof of their citizenship. Is that racism?

Spurious propaganda is rampant. Now, Jesse “Photo Op” Jackson is comparing the new law in AZ to terrorism. Nazism, Apartheid, now Terrorism. What’s next? Genocide?

Him and Sharpton, they wouldn't have a job if they ceased to follow around controversy plastering their faces spewing verbiage for the underdog.

It's racism because it requires police to check the immigration status of anyone who they BELIEVE is illegal. With 70 percent of illegal immigrants in this country being from Mexico, it will invite the police to specifically target Hispanic-looking folks.

BP already racially-profiles at their checkpoints. This will exaggerate that practice, which needs to end.

I do not condone racial-profiling, but massive illegal immigration is what really needs to end. Every legal permanent resident is required by Federal law to carry their green card at all times. Arizona is simply complying with the laws our Federal government refuses to enforce.

You are wrong. This LAW allows LE to ask of ANY their status in the United States if they suspect them to be here illegally. i.e. "Can't speak English or answer simple questions like where ya from?". Terrifying!
Well, I suppose if here illegally. Thank your illegal invaders for this. America needs to secure it's nation from invaders, period. Why do you oppose this? Legally here, what's the beef? You would thnk they would say Thank You!..

:
plenty of legal residents do not speak english. Some are mexican, some are chinese, some are russian. Not speaking english does not equal illegal.

again... what does an illegal look like?
how do they "suspect" someone of being illegal?

please privide some signifiers, because i dont know of any visual cues that would make me suspect someone is illegal (thus requiring further investigation).
