    Nationally, 60% Favor Letting Local Police Stop and Verify Immigration Status

    This is another good issue for Republicans and Conservatives in the November elections.......Democrats don't like this law because they want the Hispanic vote and don't really care how many illegals are in this country.....Republicans and Conservatives put their political positions aside and want the checks made.

    So do the American people it seems........

    Nationally, 60% Favor Letting Local Police Stop and Verify Immigration Status


    Arizona Governor Jan Brewer last week signed a new law into effect that authorizes local police to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 60% of voters nationwide favor such a law, while 31% are opposed.

    Don't the police need probable cause to stop folks? Is just being hispanic probable cause? Why does the GOP like to trample on the constitution?
    They don't seem to care about ilegals either. They had six years to do something and totally ignored the problem.

    It was the right thing to do,if an illegal breaks the law by speeding for example it only makes sense to see if they did anything else illegal.

    Police always check to see if someone has an outstanding warrent when they stop everyone else.....I dont see what the big deal about this is,nothing racial about it.

    Racial profiling is strictly prohibited in the Arizona law.Police can only check on immigration status if the person broke another law.Do you agree that it's a good thing that Police check to see if a person has a warrent out for arrest?Pretty much the same thing.

    But just because a legal citizen has broken the law by speeding does that mean they can see if you did anything else illegal?

    Do you seriously think if Jose Darkskin and Johan Blondehair both got stopped by the police under this law that Johan would be asked for a green card?

    This is already mostly how the police operate anyways, at least in LA. Dont get me wrong, I support the police but the best way to get their attention around here is to have skin darker than medium rare. I have Latino friends who've been stopped, searched, and had their information ran while wearing a button-down and slacks on their way home from work. I've walked through the same area with a hoodie, torn jeans, and carrying an un-marked bag and never been given a second look.

    If the police actually follow the law as written they will....

    I can't speak for L.A.,but here in Minnesota I've seen many white guys get stopped and searched the same way....Me included.

    OK. But he said the police could stop someone if they suspected they were illegals. That pretty much covers every hispanic in the country. Of course if someone is stopped for a crime their identity should be verified and if found to be ilegal they should be deported.
