Cops can arrest you for any violation of the law, technically. They just generally choose not to.

What does an illegal look like?

you know I had a feeling you would ask that question, I will say that there is no "politically correct answer"
Imagine to yourself who the Illegal Immigrants most likely are in Arizona
Imagine what they look like and you have your answer.
It's a simple answer really when you take away the racism and look at the facts.
are White, Black and Asian people sneaking across the border into Arizona?
or is it someone else

The real truth is that it's impossible to tell. What will happen is racial profiling, which will get the law tossed out PDQ.

exactly...
some feathers will always have to be ruffled for real change to occur.
you cant sort through people without it
if most of your illegal immigrants are hispanic
then you will obviously end up pissing off hispanics
if they were canadians
white people would be pissed
if they were Haitians
black people would be pissed
but nobody offers a better solution...
only complaints.
obviously we cant let it continue
so what do we do?
that's the real question of the day
isn't it?

Despite the delusional offerings on here, illegals aren't going away, nor are they some creeping danger to life and limb.

Tighten up border security and come up with a workable plan to assimilate the people currently here as citizens.

lots of people feel breaking the law is a right and to question those who do is a violation of civil liberties.
interesting country i live in, and i was born here. in no way resembles the nation of 50 years ago.
