Do u mean most people who live in Manhatten b/c if u take a journey through BK, QUeens or the Bronx, there is very little available parking b/c many NYers nowadays in fact do drive.
And the question should be allowed, especially if the cops ask somebody a question about something and no English comes out of there mouth.

I'd guess as much as 50% of New Yorkers don't carry their id at all times (SS, driver's license, passport).

That's bull man. Less than 40% of residents of New York City commute daily by car.

U have to understand that the responses and answer of a young college student are gonna be different than older folks who have had a lifetime of delaing with illegal issues and being rejected out of places from not having an ID. Especially those who have lived in other states for awhile. Most working, normal adults folks, carry their license and SS on their person at all times. They fit favorite easy into ur wallet.
The post that tell people to move to another country are ridiculous. I have a feeling that many of the folks who dont like the question have family that is here illegally. Just a thought

NYC is very "pc" when it comes to illegals.

Why should foreigners get special treatment?

I agree with you that cops should be able to ask people to see their IDs and Cards (if they're immigrants) and no one should get special treatment due to the politically correct world we live in.

I really hate the "were all foreigners" argument b/c we all now that back in the days all of the free services that we give away now didnt exist. Do u realize an estimated 100,000 illegals have left Arizona since that law? Lucky state, leadership stood up, But thats another story.
Bottom line is it would be nice if NYPD could ask but it probably wont be allowed to anytime soon. NYC is a santucary city for undocumented folks. CA is even worse which why I can't wait to move soon.
Of course YOU hate the we are all immigrants argument. Its makes everything much easier for you people. Free services didn't exist? Of course it wasn't free, it costed millions of innocent lives. Basically, to me, pariots are people blinded by their pride for their country.

they broke the law and came into this county by breaking the law and not going through the propler channels to come here legally and now everyone is going you searching my bag but do not ask the guy or girl who barely speak a word of english when you stoping them about there status ..

ask if i could go into any other country and not get me sent right back to the states if i break the laws of the another country or i get jail time for breaking there laws about going into the country illegally
Look, I don't support the idea of illegal immigrants, but grabbing and searching people is really ****ed up. Besides, they won't ask white people for their immigration papers, and there are illegal immigrants from Europe.

I am SURE a strong pro american would be offended if the cops ask them to show proof of citizenship. This also lead to profiling.

Like, do I get checked because I have a foreign accent?

Do I get checked because I look non white?
