    If you have ever seen an episode of COPS you will see that cops ask everybody with reason or not for their ID. If you are in the wrong area they ask, if you have a license plate light out, they ask. If you are walking and carrying something they ask. This law changes nothing other than the fact that they can now do something if the person doesn't have ID.

    By the way, if an illegal gets stopped driving without a license he should automatically be arrested for putting the public in general in danger. No license and no insurance, and where did he get the car and how did he register it?

    Don't get caught up on something that happens every day in every city in the nation.
    The reason for that is simple..... nothing makes a cop look stupider to his colleges (and possibly the dude behind the counter at the unemployment office) than finding out later that the guy you stopped for a tail light being out, and didn't ask for ID, just got done robbing a bank and there was an APB out on him. Same for not running an ID on any stop.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Interestingly, the LA Times did a poll, and 51 percent supported the Arizona law. That's telling.

    This protest doesn't matter, a large majority of Arizonians favor this law.

    I believe you missed the point.

    Any law is open to abuse by cops, including a traffic stop (ever hear of "driving while black?"). Additionally, when the cop pulls over an individual they ask for certain documentation, drivers license, registration, insurance, whatever.

    If the new Arizona law is illegal because it has the potential (as I've heard Obama state) to be abused by cops that want to racially profile, then pretty much every law (including traffic laws) on the books are illegal since it has the same flaw. Cops have to make judgement calls all the time.

    The police have no interest in stopping people willy nilly to see if they are legal. If the liberals don't trust the police to police themselves, then tell obama to enforce the law with federal law enforcement like he is sworn to do. End of problem. That is all the gov of arizona wanted in the first place.
