We all know that the Arizona law is racist. So they can pull over anyone who is not white.

No, let me correct you. "What else could have been expected from an airhead like Debbie Riddle?" - there. So far it's just her.

Until the Fed stands up and does their job every state needs to start passing laws that crackdown on illegals.
But without a doubt we the people the voters need to hold our elected reps accountable for allowing this mess to happen. It was preventable and they opted to ignore it. Not unlike the banking mess.

Racist???? What does race have to do with this bill???

I feel liberals are focusing more on race than anyone else. You have tons of Asians, Mexicans, Africans, and others who agree with this.

FYI: I am a Wash DC native and I used to get stopped by the Arlington County Police quite often since I was a young Nordic White male who did not look acceptable. So profiling is NOT just a 'race' thing. And, no I was never a skinhead............if anything, I had a beard and longish hair.

Note I now live in Arizona who is in favor of SB1070 and would like to see it be the law across the land.

The criteria for flushing out criminals should be more about the rule of law than anything else. All of our states are being invaded by illegal aliens including Texas.
