    Huh???

    My post was in response to Capt. America's post, that I failed to quote....but here it is...with the best part bolded...

    An OVERWHELMINGLY percentage of Americans support AZ. I wonder what would happen if THEY held their OWN rally's? Screw La Raza.

    I didn't read the whole thread, so maybe this was asked already. But let's just assume that enforcement of law leads to racial profiling. I'm making no judgment that it will, nor am I making a moral judgment on the usage of racial profiling. But let's just say that it does. Let's say that most latino looking individuals who have been stopped or questioned for committing a crime are asked for some form of identification.

    So? How is that a bad thing? Who would that hurt? OMG, they have to show an ID if they're stopped for committing a crime. Oh the horror. Seriously?

    Look, if bunch of sexy white women with blonde hair and blue eyes were running around committing a crime spree in a certain area, I would expect to be stopped and questioned. If I was NOT, I would figure the cops aren't doing their jobs.

    But, sexy white women with blonde hair and blue eyes are in a definite minority....
    Hispanics are not, not in the southwest...

    I think you bring up a very valid point. Why is is illegal for AZ to create a law that mirrors federal law, but CA can legalize a substance that is illegal at the federal level?

    More on topic, why are cities like SF allowed to be "sanctuary cities"?

    They aren't, I just think justice in her blindness, turns a blind eye to those places. They aren't "allowed" to be sanctuary cities, but the law is not enforced. It is hypocrisy to crack down on AZ when the law is clearly legal, but to ignore sanctuary cities that are clearly illegal. I think the Obama administration supports what sanctuary cities are doing, and therefore they get a pass.

    Time for AZ to sue CA and the Feds for contributing to the crime rate in AZ. Like Leno said last night, we should deport illegals to their point of origin, Los Angeles.....

If the "Bush-appointed" Supreme Court does what you say here, then they will be stopping Arizona from doing what you say you want Arizona to do.
    1) What part of "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;" don't you understand?

    2) Enforcing Federal law is one thing, but adding new terms and conditions to Federal law, such as requiring "papers", is not allowed, as that would change the Federal law, thus violating the supremacy clause of Article VI.
