73% Say Cops Should Check Immigration Status During Traffic Stops

I LOVE this idea! WHy would this "violate" peoples civil rights. I will GLADLY show whatever if they would enforce this. We have to stop this steady bleed of undocumented (and possably very dangerous...hello, terrorists) people from crossing our borders!

Would you agree with this?

  • when they pull us over they have ask for our license, registration, and know if we have a warrant out, they can search our cars with-in reason... if we go to another country they tell us to keep our passport on us at all times, so i think its fair if we do the same in the US.

  • Sure while we are at it why don't we have police come into our homes once a month and do a search for drugs and any other illegal possessions. Also they need to check our children for child abuse twice a month. Maybe they should install speed trackers on every car too. That way anyone who speeds or violates a traffic law will automatically get a ticket. Then we will live in a utopia!

  • I think its a great idea. If you not here legally, then IMO you forfeit your "civil rights". If you want rights, come through the proper channels to become a citizen.

  • I agree with you OP, I think they should've started doing things like this along long time ago, and I don't see how it could or would violate anyone's rights, honestly IMO if they are here ILLEGALLY then why do we really have to worry about violating their civil rights?

  • If someone BREAKS THE LAW and their status as a citizen is THEN CHECKED then it's fine. Obviously we aren't saying to just walk in to someones home and check their status but, well, is THAT a bad idea either?

  • At traffic stops, arent' you asked for your drivers license. Illegal Immigrants can't get drivers licenses, so it makes sense.

    She is talking about at traffic stops, not random searches, first poster.
