This issue directly shows how screwed up this country is.
We are actually on page 56 of a thread about enforcing an existing federal law that requires people to follow the proper channels to get into the country.
We are actually debating this!!
The law doesn't permit random sampling of the population based on "looks like an Invader". It requires that the police stop people for suspicion of some other offense and then requires the officer to check residency status, if he suspects this additional crime to have been committed.
Since, however, the USSC has stated that blanket random road "checkpoints" for DUI and seatbelt usage do not violate the FOURTH Amendment, then it goes to follow that random routine road checkpoints for violation of other state laws cannot be a violation of that same Amendment.
BTW, you could try reading your constitution someday. I mean, if you're going to argue some law or other violates an amendment, shouldn't you at least pick a number of an Amendment that might pertain to what it is you're wishing it violated, but doesn't?
Suddenly you people have a problem with the police apprehending criminals? Its that why you keep sending the same criminals to Washington every year, and not, as I once suspected, you desired to get them out of your own neighborhoods?
For some reason, actually for no reason at all except shear hormonal imbalance, the Democrat stooge believes that if he uses his hormones and not his brain, then his use of the word "racism" automatically makes the person he's aiming it at a racist.
He never realizes his liberal use of the word does nothing but expose the vacuity of his thinking to the rest of the world.
Desiring to curb the Invasion of the United States by unlawfully entered parties is not racism.
You have to find a real argument, since your emotions aren't going to win this one.
Line 26 says it all:
ANY PERSON WHO IS ARRESTED SHALL HAVE THE PERSON'S IMMIGRATION STATUS DETERMINED BEFORE THE PERSON IS RELEASED. THE PERSON'S IMMIGRATION STATUS SHALL BE VERIFIED WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PURSUANT TO 8 UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 1373(c).

4. IF THE ENTITY REQUIRES PROOF OF LEGAL PRESENCE IN THE UNITED STATES BEFORE ISSUANCE, ANY VALID UNITED STATES FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTIFICATION.
Can't profile and legal ID means they are presumed to be in the country legally.
That about sums it up.
