What race do people think the illegal immigrants in Arizona are? So just because almost every single one is Mexican, it is now racist to do something about it. That is the absurd logic that the PC police are trying to use to strike down any and every effort to control the swarms of illegals invading our country.

I'm really sick of the PC bull$hit. Just the fact that it is even possible a cop could possibly abuse a law means we should throw it out according to liberals and illegals. So lets just throw out all laws since they could all possibly be abused.

The fact is the Dems are dying to get amnesty and convert as many illegals into lifelong dependent people on the big govt tit so they can score more votes. Anyone who thinks otherwise is an absolute fool.

So, they're all "mexican" and there are no other Central Americans?
Yep combining all people into one generalized grouping for the purpose of negative stereotyping is racist.

Got any links to your statement: What race do people think the illegal immigrants in Arizona are? So just because almost every single one is Mexican, it is now racist to do something about it.

The problem is not with getting illegal immigration under control the problem is questioning someones citizenship because of how they look for no reason. If Im speeding and a cop stops me and is required to determine if I am a citizen because he is required to do this to everyone then fine Im all for it. If he is questioning me because Im not white then thats the problem. It allways amazes me how folks on the right hate pc hey its not a law like this thing you know. You can scream any hateful thing you want to you want be arrested go ahead use the n word or s word or any other words you want to. Nothing will happen so what is your problem.

It is a disgrace to this country that the issue of racism is being slung around unfounded. Americans have worked hard, both black and white, to ensure equality for all minorities in this country, each calm, acceptable to each race until this issue of illegal immigration began to be debated. Some knucklehead started using the "race card" and now look at things. What amazes me is how idiotic everyone is because they don't even know what the hell racism is. Illegal aliens to this country are marching for "rights". Insane. We need a real American in the White House who is not afraid to tell these people to shut up and go home. And for those who continue to remain ignorant "Psst"....illegal immigration has nothing to do with racism, it has to do with illegal. And this is what AZ is addressing, tweaking this law too much for my taste, but nonetheless, appeasing all the whiners.

Before these Fascist Laws, Police Officers could detain an illegal and turn them over to the Feds for deportation. Now they will have to charge them with a criminal offense, get them a hearing and a lawyer, then because they have no money, put them in prison. Gee, i thjought Arizona was broke

Why do you assume the worse? It is has been relayed in here over and over that no one can be stopped based on race, ethnicity or skin color. No matter who you are after being stopped for some other reason and you cannot produce valid I.D. only then will your status in this country be suspect.

So who has more to do with the Officer who was shot outside Casa Grande, Pedro the Vegetable Picker in Yuma or the American who buys the marijuana that the DRUG SMUGGLERS were moving when they shot him
