claiming Latinos brought it upon themselves,


even TOM TANCREDO, who along with Lou Dobbs, served as one of the major sources of information for the anti-Mexican immigrant movement, expresses fears of the law encouraging Racial profiling.

Quote:
[He] applauds the law in that Arizona took control of enforcing laws the federal government hasn't enforced.

But he questions how police can stop people for any reason. "I do not want people here, there in Arizona, pulled over because you look like should be pulled over," says Tancredo.

He suspects police in Arizona will only pull people over for breaking the law. But they could already do this before the new law.

Tancredo wasn't questioning how this law would be implemented. He did not express fear that it would encourage racial profiling. He was merely saying that if that it were going to be the case (which he knows it would not) he would then be fearful of that. It amazes the spin and twist and the taking out of context by the pro-illegals on other's words so desperately seeking support for their agenda especially from the opposing side.

Here is what Tancredo said:

"If I had anything to say about it, we'd be doing it in Colorado," Tancredo told Denver news station KDVR. But, he said, "I do not want people here, there in Arizona, pulled over because you look like should be pulled over."

He is not saying that is what is going to happen in Arizona what he is saying he wouldn't want a law that would advocate racial profiling. I am sure he has read it and knows that isn't what is in the law or he wouldn't be recommending it for Colorado also.

Again this is a non-issue.....The law is specific about not profiling.
So this is a useless thread.

Read the law before posting.

it is ok for police to profile anyone. this and posts like it have a common element an attempt to trump immigration and employment law with civil rights law. not guna happen. the assertion that violation of immigration and employment law is not a crime is a false one.

Who is profiling? It's the open borders side that insists every hispanic not only looks and acts the same but that every hispanic wants unlimited immigration, has no respect for the immigration laws of this country.

I am sure there will be a few isolated cases of hot shot cops overreaching, but we needed to do something as our federal gov just sits on their hands. Most of the law enforcement people will get additional training and I think this will work for now. We do need to come up with a good guest worker program as well as fix the damn fence now.

Again, the courts have ruled again and again that it's OK to profile someone as long as that is not the only reason for probable suspicion of being here illegally.. Since the vast majority of illegals are hispanics, with Mexicans being the majority, it's only natural that LE look at the hispanic community in a search for an illegal infestation. But LE does have to have other reasons than just racial profiling for suspecting that a hispanic is illegal.

FACT: Left wing hispanic ass kissing democratic amnesty politicians can't amnesty illegal alien future democratic voters if they've been deported.

Excerpts from the article;

"I do not want people here, there in Arizona, pulled over because you look like should be pulled over," says Tancredo.

Looks like you're the one spinning spinning spinning....

I see that democracy is a bad thing when it doesn't agree with you.

Hypocrite!
