    Read the bill. If the police have "reasonable suspicion" that the person might be undocumented, they have the right to detain and require documentation.

    Do you seriously believe that they are going to be stopping the blue-eyed blonde Canadian?

    This POS legislation is going to disproportionately going to target latinos (Undocumented or American citizens), especially those of the lower socio-economic status.

    I'm not in favor of stopping people just to check legal residency. But, it's high time to get police more involved in enforcing ALL laws. Illegal immigration is a big problem, American citizens want the laws enforced, especially with the escalation of the drug cartel. It is getting out of hand in AZ.

    Even Jeb Bush has come out and said how stupid this Arizona law is.....

    Not to mention Tancredo and several other ultra-conservative, hard line anti-immigrant types.

    Just playing devil's advocate here, but a lot of states and municipalities look at enforcing Federal laws as a sort of unfunded mandate.

    The problem with the Hispanic community is that the whole community is aiding and abeting their friends and relatives. They have a lot of solidarity. There is a huge network. They need to take responsiblity for that fact. They can't have their cake and eat it too, crying racism when the authorities call them on their game.

    In my experience, the people looking for a "handout" in this country are not the undocumented immigrants....it is American citizens.

    Usually the undocumented immigrant is the one looking for work outside Home Depot or pushing a vending cart. Rarely do you see an undocumented immigrant panhandling or applying for welfare.

    I think AZ is getting tired of paying the bills for the expenses that these people bring to the taxpayers in the forms of public services. The States get stuck paying expenses because the Feds won't enforce the law.

    You can't get any state public services, if you are an not a legel cizten. Those sevices are only for legel ciztens of the United states of America.

    Please forgive me for any errors I am typing on a diffrent computer that doesn't have grammer check, nor Spelling check.
